Ok, does anybody here realy think that ki is about visualizing? Or do you think that it just relies on you being able to FEEL it out.
Comments? Opinions?

Well, my opinion would be that is easier to have an mental image!! Cause if u can visuliz wut u cant see but is there is easier to move it to parts of ur body and do stuff with it!! But if it all comes down to it i dont reckon u have to have a mental image!!

The classics say that where your Yi (intention) goes, your chi (energy) follows.

I'll go with bossman on this one, play around with intention and eventually and gradually the feel will be there.
If you visualize actively you can fool yourself, better imho to just let it happen and observe, even if it's not that heckofalot to it..

For ME whatis now WORKING is ENVISIONING a living flame IN THE MIRROR down in your lower abdomen! 1st you have to LOOK INTO YOUR OWN EYES in the mirror. But PERIPHERALLY you're looking down at your HARA but ONLY peripherally. Now muster up the mind/body coordination that makes the hand, foot etc. obey the mind. Thus, "COMMAND" the living flame which you're visualizing to rise and "take over" the rest of your being while you chant the improvised mantra "You do NOT wish to be an alcoholic" or "You do NOT wish to be a tobaccoholic" or WHATEVER your prob is. IT WORKS!

It's all about the Yi and the relaxed integrated motion of the body.

E-master,
The best way to find out about what you are asking is to seek a qualified instructor. Seeing as how a majority of the taiji schools out there these days lean more towards heath and esoterics I would recommend a Baugua or Xingyi class. In a short ammount of time your question would probably be answered.
I wouldn't recommend trying to learn so called chi projection from a book, I truly believe that this is something that must be experienced first hand to even grasp a low level comprehension.
Good Luck
Chris

Energy Master, you really expected an internet thread to give you the answers to the universe?

Do you expect us to come round to your house and explain and show it all to you?

Let me use the analogy of a banana. If you've never eaten a banana and ask me what it tastes like - how can I describe it? All I can do is to show you where to get one from so that you can taste it for yourself, then you will know.

If you haven't been trained properly and thoroughly by a good instructor and experienced chi/ki within technique we can't describe or explain it to you.

All we can do is to advise you in finding a proper instructor - everything else doesn't count. Myself, Nenippal and Fisherman tried to help and you were quite rude...

Not an auspicious start....
