Body Energy Arts / Re: Phisical chi attacking
« on: October 19, 2006, 11:00:24 AM »
A fair amount of kungfu schools teach qi gong. You can also try going to a Chen Style Tai Chi school, or dahn (sp?) yoga, if your goal is to increase your ability to manipulate chi. The warm-up exercise for a chen tai chi school I know of begins with psi balls (I can't remember what the sifu calls them). The point is to practice condensing the ball and then expanding the ball over and over again. Apparently when the ball is condensed it is the form of destructive chi where an expanded ball is chi that can be used to heal. Chi can be interpreted (supposedly) into three colors: green, yellow and red. Green is calm chi, yellow is excited chi, and red is destructive chi. If one were to strike with the intent to use chi you would want to use an open palm strike without tensing the muscles. Tensing the muscles (which also happens with a closed fist) constricts your chi flow causing less effectiveness. You also want to exhale when striking an having the intent of the chi to not only harm but to also extend forward, through the opponent.

Note: I've been practicing with chi through martial arts (dojos and clubs w/ certified instructors) and private training (meditating, learning individually with experienced martial artists, sparring etc.) for about 8 years now and I'm just starting to become at all proficient in it. Don't expect to be amazing in the beginning. Also, if you have any level of confidence in your ability to do this, then don't do it on people. If done properly it can apparently cause internal bleeding.


p.s. Pinecone: What I've learnt in Shinkendo is the most effective thing to do with a sword is to work on your "sword spirit". Having actual speed/strength/technique combined will work better than worrying about draining their energy. Unless, of course, you are a master at draining energy and can knock someone out in seconds. Chi follows thought, if your thought is focused on draining their energy it wont be in your strike, or your block.

A few years ago I'm ashamed to admit that I used to make dancers trip while waiting for my mother's dance class to end.

If you believe in Taoism, you could probably say "you are the spoon" without being too far off. (The tao is everything and nothing thus you are part of the tao and the spoon is a part of the tao etc.)

For whatever reason I've had something of an urge to express a difficulty behind these sort of abilities. By sort, I mean psychic abilities, and I do not mean the light use of such an ability but actual strength in an ability. I've met a lot of psychics in my life in varying places, and of varying strengths. From barely being able to see an aura or read an emotion, to being able to clearly hear thoughts. One of these was so strong and so uncontrolled with her strength that the mere flexing of one's energy (if that person had a fair amount of energy) would put her into convulsions and vomiting for about 20-30 minutes.

I've learnt a fair amount from these psychics, and I suppose especially from those of the stronger category. It seems that there are a few requirements to having any sort of actual mastery with an ability. A strange one that I have noticed in all who have actual skill is that they do not care about having the abilities, it isn't a big deal to them. It isn't that they take it for granted, it's that there is an understanding within them about it not being a big deal, or a mystical thing. The other thing is that they have to come to terms with themselves and accept themselves. It isn't about having mental blocks about the ability, so much as having mental blocks about yourself. I for instance can not use psychokinesis. Though I said previously about needing to see an ability to do it that is really only a part of the truth. The whole truth is psychokinesis seems grand to me, and so though I believe in it I do not believe in myself. The curse of having natural talent such as that girl I mentioned is since she has the blocks she has her ability has become negative and uncontrolled.

So perhaps the first step to gaining something like psychokinesis is simply self reflection. Without knowing yourself, you will never know your abilities.

Honestly I'm still waiting to see someone lift a penny. . .
I believe that it's possible but I don't have experience with that sort of phenomena. The closest I've seen is doors randomly opening when I walk near them. They're heavy enough to not be moved by the wind, but it still doesn't mean it has anything to do with me. Unfortunately, I've never been able to pull off a psychic skill until seeing it with my own eyes, once I see it the block towards that skill goes away. Well, I guess that's just how it is. Hopefully I will find somebody some day, or maybe get it on my own. Though, it isn't really the most important thing to me.

Perhaps we should concern ourselves with experiences of Pk for this thread rather than violations. . .I'm fairly sure the reference is to moving up to bigger things(?) Or perhaps not. . .but in any event, why not give the person our experiences to allow himself and other readers grow? Why stunt the possibility by diverting from the topic at hand?

Well, I've never done the psi wheel thing, but I've been working with Pk for some time, mainly with a pendeulum, rolling balls, and my main focus which was manipulating a flame, and the wind. Rolling a ball was really hard to be honest, I could just barely get it to budge, and since manipulating elements (air, fire) is more natural for me I can't help but think the pendulum was getting affected in a similar way.

After wondering what the hell for about a year or two I realized that when I manipulate an element I very clearly create a connection with me and the said element. This wasn't really happening much with physical objects, so I moved on to trying to bend spoons with the assumption that a connection could be easier to establish with physical touch. Thus get the hang of it and then move on to more distance.

Well it's been about two months now and though I haven't bent a spoon in any sort of noteable fashion I suppose I gained two incites that might be beneficial for you. Focus, and connection seem to be the keys. I noticed that there was a lot more pressure on the top of the spoon when I was able to see (with my eyes) my aura on the head of the spoon. Along with this I learnt that only then could I properly understand how to will more pressure onto the spoon, and obviously focus then comes into play.

Another thing, there has been a lot more pressure when I'm doing all of these things and breathing out at the same time, when I stop breathing out the pressure almost if not completely dissipates. Which I suppose has to do with relatively basic chi concepts. Breath and sight.

I started empathy before moving onto telepathy, I feel it made it alot easier for me.

It was actually the exact opposite for me. Even now rather than feeling someones emotion as my own, I can just tell how someone's feeling by judging from the way their aura is feeling and moving etc (I know that isn't specifically telepathy, the point is that empathy, even though it is considered an easier ability can be considered a harder ability by some).

Perhaps you could try meditating each day, and while meditating work on feeling the energy in your chakras, or seeing your aura, or feeling your aura, or creating psi balls etc. Basically spend a bit of time each day in a peaceful setting attempting some sort of awareness towards energy.

Outside of that be perceptive. If you are talking to someone try to feel their energy, or guess what they will say  next etc. Just try to always be somewhat aware of your surroundings and practice the said craft during everyday life.

Yeah I can do those things. I wouldn't say I'm some amazing psychic but I've been practicing for about 8 years, and have been meditating everyday for the past 5. . .generally speaking this isn't the sort of thing I usually practice with but I thought it would be a fun change of pace.

I've actually seen a demonstration of this before at our school though. A psychic came and did a bunch of interesting things like after duct taping quarters to his eyes (to ensure a lack of vision) he would hold his hand over small nick nacks that the crowd had and tell them what it was. Still having all the duct tape on someone held out pieces of paper that the students had put their name something interesting about themself, and something else (can't remember) and he would always get the name and then sometimes get the rest of the card and other times actually get really deep personal information.

Anyways nearing the end he held up a spoon and had everyone in the audience visualize the spoon bending and the thing started shaking and then it was bent, in like 5 seconds. It was pretty crazy.

As a sidenote though, he didn't consider himself psychic. He considered himself "observant".

Yeah I've read the article. I'm really looking for people with experience on the subject though. Can anyone bend spoons here?

So, to help increase my waning focus I've turned to spoon bending. College and my personal life has led my emotions somewhat astray which has been harming my psionic training. Though I continue to meditate everyday I thought that this would be a fun way to help increase my focus while gaining a new skill perhaps.

So, I know this is a somewhat silly question to ask because it has to do with experiencing the feel of the spoon bending, and words can't quite describe how to will something etc. etc. but I suppose regardless I'd like to ask for some tips if people have any that can be applicable to others such as myself. In other words help please ^.^

Oh, not to be offensive but I would prefer the advice to come from those who have had significant success with spoon bending. People who have the ability to actually bend the spoon a noteable amount.

Thanks,
Vittorio

Poetry / Poets Anonymous

Poets Anonymous

 
Standing at the podium for the first time,
Crinkled piece of paper in hand, more for novelties sake than convenience.
Sweat glistening on his brow he speaks:
Hello, my name is George, and I am a poet.
Some clap, others greet him, encouraging his reading onward.
Clearing his throat he reads:

Once-
Reading, and seeing through glasses
I thought to think
The unimaginable.
To portray a portrait I knew 
With words. On the paper I wrote
Of my gold fish named Simon.
He died when I was twelve, and reborn as Simon 2 when I was thirteen.
He was my phoenix, my immortal inspiration
Whom I spoke to frequently. Lacking the proper tools for speech, he made an excellent listener.
Small, orange with vibrant scales and large glassy eyes. Eyes of Venetian glass. He spoke through motion, swish swashing through the water, his tail would speak first,
At times he even told jokes.
A prayer of silent films
Whom listens to me speak.

Looking up from the crinkled paper his expression that of surprise, there was clapping. And he thought to retreat to his seat
But they asked for another and not saying no he smiles and leaves.
Blushing from the inside out.
