Recommended Posts

What are the stuff a person can do to feel qi better ?        (*  important   later edit (After 2 first replies)   :       to feel qi better over time)

(not talking about putting your hands close to feel some tingling in them but how to feel chi well in the body  (maybe even seeing chi with eyes)) 

what to do and how does it help exactly 

some  examples   (im not answering myself this are stuff i wonder about and i am not sure - this are genuine questions  --   would be good if you confirm and explain about any point i raise  and add stuff i didnt mention as well )  :

  meditation ?       how does it help ?      does it help feel the qi better ?

  more chi in the body ?     accumulate as much chi as possible ?    does it matter how much chi you accumulate or just how well it flows ?

 practice qigong ?  if so how does it help ?  

 cleaning the blocakges in the body  ?   in what way ?             do you increase the flow of chi in the body ?    does it increase exchange of chi from the body to the outer world  ?

The easiest to feel Qi is when you are on recieving end of the Qi Projection


I.e. when you have qualified teacher

Before you start a session, warm up properly for qigong.  Shaking out (and not for a few seconds), moving all your joints.

Then very importantly warm up your arms wrists and hands, from the shoulder blades (part of the arms) down to the finger tips where the meridien ends are on the sides of the nails.  Rub your palms together with fingers interlocked so they can rub the sides of the fingers ... and work down to include the whole wrist and 2" below the wrist, and do the backs of the hands.  Then 'stroke' your arms from the shoulder blades down the outside to the finger tips, and up the inside from finger tips to armpit and below the armpit.

Doing these things a few times massively increases the sensitivity of the hands and arms that are used in many qigongs.

At the "WenWuSchool" a teacher called Hui Liu teaches Wild Goose, in her DVDs she has these warmups which are long and excellent on their own, as is the rest of her materials

Does bad eyesight affect the 3rd eye ? 

Not really, because bad eyesight is part of the body-subtle body, the 3rd eye is part of the spiritual dimension.

Bad eyesight can in some cases be much improved through qigong, sometimes it is caused by stress, or wood element problems, or blockages in the subconscious mind at the front of the face.

Make a circle with your arms, in a way that the palm of your hands point to you. After that circulate your qi around that circle. You will perceive that after some time it wi circulate without the need of thinking about it, and reversing the flow may be a bit hard, stop the circulation and them start again on the other way, it seems easier. After some time, you will be able to do it with your whole basic.

 

Take this with a grain of salt, Im not experienced and dont have theoric knowlage, it just worked for me.

Chi kung helps you to eventually feel energy in several ways.  It is a type of meditation, normally moving meditation, but it also includes standing meditation and sitting meditation.  I have seen that a lot of people whose main practice is sitting meditation are usually sensitive to energy.  Moving chi kung helps to remove blockages so that helps you feel energy.  Also any kind of exercise generates more energy, but the important aspect of chi kung exercise is that you are supposed to be watching (listening) to the energy in your body which is generated by it.  Some chi kung also creates more energy, and Zhan Zhuang (standing meditation) is the more commonly well known way of doing that.  Lower stances generate more energy.

 

A lot of new agers think accumulating a lot of energy in the body is bad, because the assume the energy is bad, but the path of cultivating power and immortality is one of accumulating more and more energy, and of course, if you have more energy, then it is easier to feel it.

 

Seeing energy is an aspect of third eye and psychic development, which is rare in chi kung, but is common in real nei kung.  A lot of my students have started seeing auras after a year or so.

Instead of visualizing the energy move around try moving your body in small circles by swiveling at the waist while holding that same arm position, and see how long it takes to feel it then.

If no teacher, just stand. Drop the shoulders, close the eyes, sink knees slightly and keep back straight and relaxed. Basically drop into the tailbone, then glutes, then thighs.

 

5-10 minutes at first. Eventually you'll got longer. Focus on breath at first, then you will eventually sink more inside and ... I'll stop there. Feeling > words.

Yes i practice qigong and meditation   - for some time now but unconsistent  and without much motivation (Especially qigong)  and it would be great to be able to feel qi    (i actually did a qigong instructors course  - but i dont teach others cause i want to feel qi  well first) 

thanks for the replies everyone   -   i have to say though  in this forum there is a habit of "over quoting"  (as opposed to minimizing their use only when needed)   -  it really is long to explain all the ways but i think it reduces the amount of answers and their length and quality  (i wont explain also cause i dont think people will get it as well )  .......   this is  a very good forum i like it a lot  ----  i think without this over quoting issue it would have been  10 times better   (its really interesting why exactly this spesific forum is suffering from this over quoting  -  maybe the issue is just the size of the quote  where in other forums its smaller ) 

all replies are good  -  as always with the subject the more info i get about this and more explanations and clarifications   (cause every aspect of this is not fully clear to me  -  best exercises to feel qi (not during the exercise but in general in life ) the fastest way (as in if you practice it for weeks)  , also excericses to feel qi while practicing it ,  how stuff help in this aspect ,  spesific diet ?  ,        accumulation of qi   VS   the flowing of qi in the body       etc

Some say, and I have experienced, that Tai Chi Ruler practice is the easiest way to learn to feel chi. Best source for me was Masterworks International's DVD, which claims to activate the eight extraordinary channels. If you search, there are threads on it here on the Bums.

Here's the DVD: https://www.amazon.com/Tai-Chi-Ruler/dp/B004QOAKRO/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=Tai+Chi+Ruler+dvd+Masterworks&qid=1585404817&sr=8-2

 

You can do it empty handed, but I recommend getting a ruler. These people make my favorite.

I made a couple of videos specifically to teach people to feel energy.  In the beginning people are usually more sensitive with their hands, later this sensitivity spreads to more and more of the body.  I call these Jedi techniques, and they teach methods to use for the hands.

 

This one teaches you to feel your proximity to surfaces,  objects, and people.

 

This one teaches you to feel yourself moving through the energy field of the Earth:

Yes, it does activate chi in the whole body, not just in the hands. although you may feel them first. The rocking back and forth motion in this version of the ruler practice activates the heel channels (some of the Eight Extraordinary Vessels), which carry chi up the body, and the belt channel, which distributes the chi horizontally (another of the EEVs).

 

Here are links to some old threads on this, many questions answered :)
