D: Do you actually feel the Chi Energy travel through the acupuncture meridians?
G: I feel the energy go up the spine all the time.
D: How long does it take for the energy flow to go around in a circle?
G: There is no set time —— the number of cycles' in a day, the length of each cycle, I cannot tell. The energy feels like always there always flowing in the body. The body always feels open. I feels the energy in the spine, in the head, in the- chest, in my arms, in ay legs.
THE ENERGY CENTENS D: Can you feel the meridians and acupuncture points clearly?
G: No, I feel the whole body wide open and energy flows freely in my body, rather than definite routes. I do feel that the energy is stronger at certain points --- for example, I can feel the navel is the main place of energy storage, Even the navel is not one spot, but a large diffuse area of energy concentration. There is another area of energy store in the chest area. I feel the belt route more, the belt route feels more-open. Sometimes I catch my hands going around my waist without me consciously doing that. Nowadays, I open so many routes, the meridians don't feel like single lines, but energy flows like a sheet, like a river. Everything inside the body is wide open, my whole body feels like pushing out.
D: Can you transmit the power to another person?
G: Not yet, but I guess I will, when my body open up more. I feel like I can help other people open up their routes.
D: Can you direct the energy with youl mind?
G: Yes, when I do the Pa-Kua, I can feel the energy go right into my finger. When I feel tired, I can pull the energy from the testicles right up the spine to the brain and I would feel refreshed and energized right-a-way. That is the sperro energy.
ENERGY TRAVELS IN SPIRALS D: Does energy travel in straight lines like a bullet?
G: When I practise Pa-Kua, I can feel the energy move in spirals up the spine to the head; and also depending on the posture, for example when I kick my leg and my foot, the energy travels like a spiral down the leg to the foot and toes, when I move my hand and fingers the energy spirals and travels to the palm and-finger tips. Energy travels like a spiral around my waist. When I practise standing meditation, I feel the whole body coming out--- my body feel like more rounded. I can feel the inside energy moving the outer physical body without the need to tell it to do so. I think I am feeling the "energy body". Yes, I definitely feel that I have an "energy body" in addition to my physical body. I believe what the mystics & Yogi call "Subtle Body" is what I feel as "Enargy Body".
