  3. Greetings

    Welcome, Lazgrane Along with Fa Xin, also interested in your "home brew" recipe...ingredients.... and what you've noticed so far from your practice... And you answered those questions while I was typing this! Good that your friends find you "fatter".... you have energetically perceptive friends...
  4. Newcomer

    I did that practice for awhile when I started energy work and got interested in JAJ's healing training. A group of us would get together to practice the tape (back when these were tapes and not DVDs, lol). It was very energizing. Curious what benefits you're noticing...

    Hello, HuangDiNeiJing, Welcome! First article in your blog is fascinating... although going from high range for me to over my head, lol I look forward to reading more, both there, and here, where I think you will have a lot to offer. Very glad you joined!
  7. Introduction - Working with patients

    Welcome, chunkstyle! Hopefully someone here can step in and offer advice on this for you. Michael Lomax, aka Yamu, is a member here, and talks about this. You can probably also find advice on this on the Facebook group "Clinical Medical Qigong"... a great bunch of practitioners, and very generous with their experience and advice. Glad you decided to join us Bums!

  13. Chi - how does it feel?

    wandelaar, you might find this thread interesting and/or helpful...
  14. Chi - how does it feel?

    Not sure where you want to go with this, but maybe helpful are the traditional indications of chi movement. Some of the common sensations people report when they feel the chi starting to move in their bodies include: feelings of warmth, extreme heat, electricity, heaviness, lightness, expansion, contraction, pressure, an internal sense of wind or water moving. Sometimes that is simplified down to hydraulic (fluid movement) or electrical (buzzing) feelings in the body. Re: "thought like feelings" you mention above, I can't say a I've ever felt thoughts.. but I have felt a kind of energetic chaos in my head. When you write "like if inside my physical body there is another more subtle body that is in a chaotic state" ...this is exactly it! See if you can track that "subtle body" when you do some simple energy practices... grounding and simple chi exercises can shift that, and you start to be able to notice the changes in that subtle body more.
  15. Pressure Cookers & Protein Powder

    Hey Redcairo..... Not IP, but....How about some keto pancakes made with protein powder? (also eggs, cream cheese, and flour) This recipe needs some tweaks, but SO filling! There's a link on this page to a recipe for the same ingredients made into muffins. Haven't tried that one yet, but intend to.
