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.

meditation is extremely helpful in my life, i could not live without it.

My life used to be hectic, i had a nervous breakdown, I had troubles at work and my house had been broken into.

so i started meditating, it did not change my physical strength but i became stronger mentally and it has changed my life, i strongly recommend meditation to everyone.

Hmmmmmmmmmm, heres wot i think. Ki is spiritual energy so it cannot do any harm or damage physically, but maybe cood affect u spiritually. I don't know much about this so my turn.

What does energy breathing and stuff do for u? Does it increase ur strength physically or spiritually? If it increases ur physical strength (therefore AFFECTING your physical body)then could u AFFECT the physical body of others in an attack???

I think you ought to look through the other threads on this forum and realize that the DBZ stuff is BS stuff. I also think thatt if you want to have a thread locked you are off to a great start.

Just try to keep going with the subject of the thread. It is interesting to hear everyones views on Ki and how it effects them in everyday life.

Thank's for the response, Reiki and Bossman.
One more question, if you don't mind:
if I'm using my own qi, is there a risk involved to be drained as a consequence?
I wont be seeing my qigong teacher until beginning of april, so any guidance will be appreciated!

regards,
nenippal

I've always found any kind of healing produces more energy and never drains. The only people I've seen 'drain' their energy to heal are some 'spiritual' healers who feel the need to 'suffer' to heal - a kind of 'sacrifice' and do it to themselves...

This 'flood control' is a pain...

hence a need for good grounding before healing.

Okie dokie, thank's!
I'm not planning to become a healer (at least for now I have no such plans) but if some situation similar to the one I described above should occur, I'll keep your advice in mind.
Much appreciated!

nenipp:

Just to add to this...

When it comes to healing, you NEVER want to use your own qi in the process. The qi/ki healing methods of the Japanese/Chinese traditions that I know of teach on being able to draw qi/ki from the environs and process it for use. Your qi/ki is a finite source and you do not want to use that.

OK, thank's meijin, that kinda makes sense!
When I was doing my little knuckle-healing thingie I didn't do any thinking or visualisation, I just held my other hand there and let it happen...
...not that I know how that would translate to terms of internal/external qi.
