OK so we all meditate and try and try to become stronger. So what do YOU think it has done for you. All in all it has brought up a whole bunch more confidence and something to talk with friends about OK YOUR TURN

I know that my IMA training has made me a better person over all, but I wouldn't say that it was due to chi.
Personally I think that what you do within your training that is what makes life different (& better) after a while. It is the what you train and the way you train it that make influences your life. 'You are what you eat'!!
I would NOT say that it is due to my pratice of 'ki'. It could be any MA or meditation or healing practice like yoga or reiki.
I guess what I am getting at here is; there is no use for chi if it is not properly trained.
You asked for opinions - there you go...

1) "performance" (moving, talking, breathing) in front of people, WAAAAY easier than in the old days

2) modifying/dumping bad habits, my examples:
-I used to use "wet snuff" (they say it's harder to quit than smoking, but I've never smoked so I wouldn't know), quitting was not very difficult, whenever I got the urge I just focused on Dan Tien.
-I used to drink too much coffee and severe headaches have always stopped me from messing with that habit in the past, now I've cut down to a couple of cups a day (without headaches even if I don't drink any coffee on a given day)

to be continued...

3) blood pressure normalised; it wasn't dangerously high, but other messures didn't effect it as distinctly as did qigong (qigong is what I thank my "list of benefits" for)

4) healing
(this is a bit weird and new to me and in fact I'm no where near sure what to make of it, if you laugh and make fun of me I won't hold that against you)
I had messed up my knuckles pretty bad and one day they were itching so without further thought I put one palm (lau kung) an inch or so over the knuckles on the other hand. This was so unbelievably soothing so I repeted the procedure on the other hand (and kept doing the "treatment every once in a while).
A week after the "trauma" (that kind of abuse have never before healed in any less than two) I had to do some (light) punching and was sure the crust (sp/correct word?) would break and I'd bleed all over my partners dogi..
sure enough the crusts broke, but underneath came to my utter surprise whole skin (only lightly blushing).

I haven't played around with this any more, thought it best to consult some expertice in healing arts before doing so (and it happened just last week)
Any comment from healers on this board is more than welcome (reiki, bossman, anyone..?)

Not suprised, it's the most natural thing in the world to do, when something hurts we naturally put our hand there, the energy encourages the body to heal.

What did meditation do for me? Made me realise that I didn't see anything accurately until I could be still; and that inaction is just as pro active as action at the right time.

A very sensible thing to do and what I do myself for healing others & myself.

As Bossman has already said, you naturally do this when hurt, the energy comes and it encourages faster healing.

Healing with reiki is similar apart from the fact that you are not using your own internal energy to heal, you are merely providing a path for universal ki to do the job. You can work directly with hands on the body or within the aura which is what you did.

Amazing isn't it?! [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

On meditation, I have used it off and on as a practice for quite a few years now.

I also often meditate on the horse while riding, I knew I was doing "something" because I could be schooling for hours and it seemed like minutes had passed, when discussing it with a friend who does meditation he confirmed that this was in fact another type of meditation [similar to the walking meditation].

It is good for everything particularly in reducing stress levels and making things happen within the stillness. I also meditate before reiki and particularly when attuning new practioners, and lead them in a guided meditation to help them with their grounding.
