While science doesn’t leave us with a definitive answer if Qi (Chi) exist. I can tell you from personal experience that I have felt this invisible energy move through my body while doing exercises like Qigong and Tai Chi. I even can feel it moving through my body when I am meditating.
…Before I finish up this post, check out what Sije Jamie and Sifu Phu has to say about it
You only need to train in Qigong a few times to feel Chi. I have never experienced anything super natural. I haven’t seen it create super human abilities or anything like that. Rather I have found that our bodies have the amazing ability to heal itself.
I believe that over the centuries ancient wisdom has been lost to our modern society as such things like Qi have been mis understood and the real power of Chi has been lost to history.
I read books on developing Qi as well as spoken in depth with my acupuncturist about it. It’s definitely a thing and that’s all I know. I mean I can feel it. Over the years I have practiced qigong going on 26 years now. I can relax my body and free my mind simply by breathing in and breathing out. From that relaxed state when I do things like play chi sao, spar or do push hands I can feel that my senses are heightened.
I also feel that doing Qigong over the years has given me an advantage when it comes to developing my sensitivity skill. And the proof is in the pudding. My skillset is really good and I can’t even tell you how shocked people are when they touch hands with me.
I remember when I first walked into Sifu Phu’s school 26 years ago. He hit me so hard I literally saw a white flash before my eyes. He joked and said it wasn’t even 10% of his power and looking back on that day I don’t think he was lying about that. I asked him what his secret was and he said he had good Chi. I then asked him, how do I have good chi. His answer was learn Tai Chi and Qigong.
It took me a hot minute to really dig into Tai Chi, but as for Qigong I learned that right away and have been practicing it ever since.
