i know that i cant shoot or even see it. i didn't even think it existed in a noticable form until i found somew of the threads hear. if i can creating some energy by myself and feel it with one of my senses then i will be amazed.

i'll try the breathing ballon thing too. anyone got anymore suggestions?

also tho, if chi is so unnoticable and small that we dont even remember it anymore, then wat is the point fo studying it if we cant use it and it cant do anything?
i understand philosophy is good to know but u cant really practice it w/e knowing if ur doing the right thing or if its even working right?

if i'm missing the big picture then please fill me in.


thx




um ki is energy witch is matter and matter cant be created you draw in and HARNES ki

in martial arts you need to be serius about it. focus chi is all mental not physical. if you cant take up a style creat one. i have my style, i do not name it because its not all one style its a mix of martial arts. one martial art id recommend is Tai Chi Chuan liquidfire90@hotmail.com

yea i will give u this site... energy arts. and if u really want to learn about ki or chi then u should read about it there. if u still think ur interested then purchase his book " the power of internal martial arts". it tells all about the internal martial arts and chi. best regards.

my basic understanding of chi/ki/energy is that is most definatly harnessed by physical means, primarily breath. Im sure the mental aspect is also important, ie the coming together of mind , body and spirit.

Without the mind the qi will not move. The mental aspect is one of the most important part of the internal martial arts. How can anything be unified with out the use of the mind?

Fair point, I do not profess to be an expert on this subject - just sharing my expierience thus far.

Of course the mind (or no mind, mushin) is important. I was trying to highlight that the physical aspect is also important, certainly in Ki development.

The mind is important, yes, but not mind as we think of it usually (i.e the surprisingly uncontrolled chain of thoughts with which we foolishly identify ourselves).

I know the regulars here know this, but it is imho an important point and easy to misunderstand in the beginning, when one has no experiance to refer to.
