Iím fairly new at the energy arts and like most beginners, I've got questions. The thing is I donít know whatís right and wrong. Everything Iíve heard has been so controversial that it just makes it that much harder to comprehend. So... if anyone can lend me a helping hand with these questions I would be most obliged.

Are there any cautions and/or hazards that I should be aware of or have brought to my attention before I begin practicing?

What kinds of avenues of practices are easier and/or better for beginners?

Are there any specific methods that you have used that are more successful than others? If so, what ways?

What are the kinds of benefits that you have gained and/or achieved from the practice?

What are some of the possible benefits that I might see and/or achieve in my development of the practice?

Thank you for your time effort.

Sincerely,
Endiment

since you posted this in the Body Energy Arts forum, I'm going to assume you are asking about chi/ki/qi. The only major caution is to avoid overpracticing because this can lead to (from what I hear) a burnout, which is basically overworked meridians. you basically get sick and sore, but chances are, you won't have much trouble with it. I haven't heard much about the risks of psi and magick though...

What kinds of avenues of practices are easier and/or better for beginners?

I started with Chi and moved on to Psi. There is no harm in tackling them together or taking them one at a time, or simply sticking to only one. I suggest doing some reading on all of them and then deciding where you want to start. The difficulty seems to stem from person to person. I personally find Chi much easier to manipulate and work, but psi is another matter for me. it requires more concentration and focus that I don't seem to require as much with chi, but that's just me.

like I said, I have had more success with Chi than Psi, but that's just because chi manipulation just comes easier to me.

a more calm and positive outlook on life. Answers that every day life can't give you. physical health.

the possibilities are endless, but I pretty much answered this in the last question.


Thank you for taking the time to ask questions. I hope I answered well. If not, here is a link to what others have to say.
