  1. How/why does qigong work?

    I love the ignore list feature of this forum.
  2. How/why does qigong work?

    What makes you think anyone with any serious skill would be obliged to just spoon feed you? In my experience this information is usually hard won. It seemed during my training (with both a longmen priest and Hun Yuan disciple; What is your connection to a lineage might I ask in return?) that most every question I had was answered nonverbally and just outside of my conscious awareness (hard to explain, but usually like a physical hint, or non sequitur joke that was to everyone else in class seemingly off topic) and required me to transform said awareness or keep disciplined in my training to eventually figure it out as if on my own, though knowing that the answer was given months (sometimes years) ago. requests like yours combined with the tone/energy that you put forth would have left you out in the cold with all of the high level practitioners I've had the extreme blessing of meeting, so it makes sense to me that you've never met anyone who would expound on these topics.
  3. What happens to suicides?

    Gone with the wind.
  4. I think this is an appropriate response @Walker. Very clear. Very sincere. And helpful to those who might not know any better. Thanks.
  5. Of interest to healers

    I've experienced the same phenomena you mention. Regarding the instant knowing of connectedness between internal and external relationships. What a wonderful mystery.
  6. Did you ever meat that person (or otherwise confirm skill)? He rang fraudulent to me. But I'm ok being corrected.
  7. Can you say a little more about this? I've noticed quite frequently that I get very warm to the point I perspire (notably so during sitting practice) during practice. Yet I've not had a very concentrated or distinct sensation of warmth. Curious I wonder how the general heat and sweating might possibly be different from what you mention as a "transformative" heat, as far as stages and development goes.
  8. Disagreeing is insignificant. Your practice will also be, should you be too dense to recognize good advice. Find a teacher.
  9. I can hear pretty clearly. Animals will make a sound (or humans will say something) and I hear very clearly in my head what they actually mean by their vocalization. It's more strange with humans though as their intent can be the exact opposite (if not most frequently incongruent) of what it is they are saying. Animals are nice as they don't necessarily want much from you and it's nice to watch natural beings be themselves. My cat however has been an interesting study. The rapport is fun to see develop. He also seems to be aware on the subtle plains as I catch him coming to me from where ever he goes out to in the neighborhood for two things. 1. is whenever I start my gong practice 2. (and I have a suspicion this is instructed to him from my teacher or his accomplished wife as we live in close proximity) He comes to scream at me whenever I have subtle "pest" bothering me. As if to say "Don't listen to it, it's a pest, send it away". A good friend he is! For practice I'd say if you sit in the early a.m. listen to bird songs with the appropriate neutrality and hear when/what they are trying to communicate. They are literally sitting there screaming to one another. I was delighted to sense the richness and range of each respective personal expression behind each little squeak and chirp.
  10. Bliss in hands and feet

    That's a tricky question. And I talk to much as it is.
  11. Bliss in hands and feet

    Thank you for sharing. Great experiments and many things to perceive. I wonder about the correlation between what's called "internal strength" (In my experience and in this reference, a increasingly powerful hydraulic like manifestation in the limbs) and sensations that you and freeform are talking about?

    I really appreciate your encouraging words. Thanks By "find the middle points for energy sensation" I'm curious what you mean by "Middle" ?
