Flying Phoenix Chi Kung

4,554 posts in this topic

Hi, i have another question. Why is it when i do mindfulness meditation, seated with my right hand  in my left palm, do i sometimes feel more flying phoenix chi than when i am actually doing the flying phoenix meditations?

I remember it being mentioned that a reserve is built up, in the dan tien? Is that reserve finite? Also am i more attuned to the chi and tapping into it outside of my built up reserve?

Thank you.

Hello!

I am a new member, I know this forum there some years but only today I decided register me.

 

I have some doubts about the Flying Phoenix guidelines. I practiced DVD1+DVD2 daily for six months, but I became confused about what to do with the DVD3 and DVD4.Some time after begin to learn DVD3 I gave up. I am returning to practice since one month ago and would like to solve this 'mysteries', before arrive again in the point where they become  a problem.

I tried obtain some direct explanations by email maybe three times, but taichimania never replied, so I will try obtain the answers here.

 

This topic is great but is so long that even if I try research, I found pages and pages and in none of them I found the direct reply to the points that I am looking for. So excuse me if I am asking a repeated question.

 

In the Training schedule ( http://www.taichimania.com/trainingschedule.html ), point 7, says:

 

 

1) This means what exactly?

 

----a)- Should I  abandon the practice of the first group 3 standing and 3 seated meditation to replace them for the next group?

----b)- Or should I continue doing them and only add the new meditations, and the GOAL would be  practicing DVD1+DVD2+DVD3  daily?

 

Maybe you think that item 8 clears this, but not:

 

2) I can not understand if this “until you have practiced” means:

 

---a)-“until you are practicing all of them daily”

---b)-or “ until you have some past experience in all of them”

 

I ask this because you suggest that “some past experience” is enough to we can reduce the total time of practice. The item 9 suggest that some exercises will be abandoned in some point:

 

3) So I will practice only two of eleven ( 1 standing and 1 seated)  and remain without to practice all the others nine exercises for six months?

 

And in 10 you says:

 

 

4) It means:

 

-----a)-after I left behind the practice of those 9 exercises I go back and pick two o them? But if they have some utility why they should be abandoned for so long time? I will not lose their effects for not practice for 6 months? Won't be better practice all of them daily?

 

-----b)-I should continue this cycle (pick two, practice 6monhs, scale back them to once a week, pick other two, practice 6 months, scale back to once  week, pick another two.....until make the same all 5 standind+6 seated? Or only with the two stronger effect exercises of each group?

 

5) And about those two moving meditations of DVD3? They can be abandoned too? Or I should  pick one of them so?  

           Like so: - 1 favorite exercise from DVD1 + 1 favorite exercise from DVD2+ all DVD3

 

Here seems there is some confusion:

 

 

6) The DVD3 have two moving meditations, none of them is it. I suppose that you make a mistake, should be written "Volume four"?

 

So, If I was able to understand something, I suppose that:

 

7) When I begin to learn the DVD4, I should be training daily:

 

------a)1 from DVD1+1 form DVD2+ 1 from DVD3 AND Maybe practicing a “second best exercise” only once a week?

 

or

------b)-1 from DVD1+1 from DVD2+  DVD3 complete AND Maybe practicing a “second best exercise” only once a week? ?

 

8) AFTER learn DVD4 should I abandon completely the practice of the DVDs 1,2,3 ? Or should continue practicing them once a week?

 

9) The next DVDs are “extras” to the main system? I suppose that the DVD5 don’t replace a practice of the DVD4, right? Nor DVD7 replace DVD2?

 

10)By the explanations it seems that the correct steup training schedule  to the DVD1+DVD2 should be  like this, but I don1t know where put the two meditations of the DVD3:

 

 

DVD 1- 5 standing meditations*             ----DVD 2 - 6 seated meditations

I'm not advanced at all, just a beginner like you, but I feel the FP chi going into my brain centers mainly, I get a really 'refreshing' feeling in my head areas. I remember somewhere on the thread Sifu Terry said that the FP chi can be stored anywhere, monk-holding-pearl going to lower dan tian, peach going to heart, gazing-at-moon to third-eye and so on. But then again he used "store" so it may not literally mean storing too haha

Are there any news on the possibility to get access to the videos over the internet (i.e via streaming)?
