  1. Hi, I'm looking for a Qigong Doctor who was a graduate of Dr. Jerry Alan's Johnson's program because I want to seal the energy leaks that are exist in my dan tian gates (CV8, CV15, GV4, GV8, GV11, and GV14). Who do you recommend that I contact to get treatment? I live in New York, so if the doctor can work remotely, that would be great for me. I would appreciate your help!

  3. Hello everyone - I'm currently reading the 600 page book by Dr. Jerry Alan Johnson, titled Daoist Internal Alchemy: Neigong & Weigong Training. I'm not too far into it, but I've come across the most wonderful page. Please know that I did receive Dr. Johnson's approval to quote his book for purposes of our discussions. Below is the email he sent - what a kind and wonderful man he must be! 'Hi Barbara - Yes, by all means please feel free to use this material...and thank you for asking. The primary purpose for originally writing the Daoist Alchemy book was to assist others and sharing this life transforming information. That's why we're here...:-). Best wishes always, Dr. Johnson' (I was surprised to actually hear back from him personally - his website is www.daoistmagic.com) Please pardon the length of this post: THE FOUR TYPES OF VIRTUES The ancient Daoists believed that the cultivation of Virtue has its reward, both within Heaven, and within the Dao. These energetic and spiritual rewards are without shape or form, and are the magical stepping stones used by most Daoist disciples to access the secret teachings hidden within the various Spirit Realms. In high levels of Daoist Magic, the acquired magical powers of a disciple are not totally dependent on his ability to practice powerful Qigong and Shengong exercises, but are also dependent on his ability to cultivate Genuine Virtue. According to the Huimingjing, "If you do not have Virtuous Power (De), even if you encounter the Dao, Heaven will certainly not grant it to you. Why is this? Virtuous Power and the Dao are like a bird's wings. If one is missing, the other is useless. You must have dedication, devotion, compassion, moral integrity, and obey the Five Precepts (no killing, stealing, adultery, lying, or intoxication). Only then do you have something to hope for. With each kind deed, the disciple's Heart becomes purer and the subtle activities of his True Spirit increase. This allows the gap between the Qi of the disciple's Yuan Shen (Original Spirit) and the radiant light of the Shen Xian (Eternal Soul) to be reduced. Daoist priests traditionally divide De (Virtue) into four categories: Apparent Virtue, Yin Virtue, Mystical Virtue, and Genuine Virtue. Each type of Virtue represents a specific level of spiritual cultivation, and is described as follows: #1 APPARENT VIRTUE This is considered to be the first level of Virtue. However, in this level of compassion, all charitable acts are visible to others and are immediately rewarded with material and/or verbal gratitude. Because in Apparent Virtue there is an even exchange of energy, no accumulation of spiritual energy is cultivated. #2 YIN VIRTUE This is considered a transitional stage of spiritual evolution. At this level the disciple performs kind deeds without expecting any form of reward. This is the foundation of a true cultivator of the Dao, and is considered to be the preliminary stage to go progressing towards the level of Mystical Virtue. #3 MYSTICAL VIRTUE This is considered to be a higher form of Virtue. It is the expression of Virtue by mystics in the process of cultivating and nurturing their True Shen. These disciples are able to do good deeds without people knowing about their charitable actions. They are both knowingly and unknowingly helping others and society by healing the sick, helping people in trouble, protecting the balance of nature, etc. #4 GENUINE VIRTUE This is considered to be the highest form of Virtue. It is pure, genuine, natural, and un-contrived. It is performed spontaneously, without any formulated mental process, as an natural expression of the individual's internal connection with the Dao. In order to first help a disciple develop his Virtue, he is required each night to take inventory and accountability of all of his moods, thoughts, and actions. Everything that occurred during the day must be accounted for. In this way, the disciple begins to observe all of his actions without judgment, and is slowly being introduced to the skill of projecting his spiritual consciousness as an active observer. I just couldn't pass up the chance to share these wonderful explanations on to The Bums. Can it be said any better?
