At the School of Chi Energy, we are often asked if we have something against traditional Chi Gung or QiGong styles because we have said we do not teach those kinds of techniques in our school, even though we personally studied some of the different styles of chi gong. So, I wanted to clarify what we mean in a better way, so there is no longer that misunderstanding.
For those people that are looking for something to improve their overall health, then we do think one of the over 9000 different chi gong styles available should provide you with that. Traditional styles were designed to build up your body’s blood circulation, thus improving a person’s overall health & vigor.
But, what we found out through our own research is if you want to cultivate large amounts of energy and be able to handle & store it effectively without having to go thru bad feeling side effects, it is through building up your body’s electrical or nervous system that you can do that. Your body’s nervous system is wired from your brain on and goes throughout your whole entire body reaching every part of it, so that communications take place. This energy that it uses is the same thing people call “chi energy”. This “chi” or bioenergy that the body emits in the way of bio-photons naturally can be cultivated in much larger amounts than normal when you know the procedure.
In our School of Chi Energy, we show students how they can strengthen their body’s nerve fibers, so that they will emit more bio-photons by performing a simply low aerobic impact energy exercise for only 20 minutes a day. We then show students how this newly buildup energy can be used for enhanced psychic abilities. Please refer to our School of Chi Energy’s Catalog to learn the type of abilities a student learns to bring out of them self.
At the school, students learn a new and more powerful energy exercise every six months of their chi training. We time the more powerful exercises like that, so a person’s body & mind can get use to the energy build up it is experiencing. Then they learn sensitivity training exercises that teach the student, whether they are staying in control of their energy that they are building up adequately.
Since each of these energy exercises are really powerful and they get more powerful as a student learns, we found that going any faster than the time schedule we have in place, only leads to a student overloading their body with too much energy. In many other energy systems it may take a student many years before they would experience an energy overload, but with the method we teach, it would be easy to overload very quickly and why we have so many safe guards for the student in place.
By staying on a well planned out time schedule of performing the different energy exercises, as the student’s body is ready for them, we take the students to a much higher ability of projecting their “chi” and being able to use this energy in many different ways. We teach the student all about the different bad side effects that are possible when cultivating qi energy in a fast way and how to avoid the bad side effects in the first place.
So, it isn’t that we have anything against the traditional styles of chi gung, it’s just that those systems or methods will not lead you to the higher levels in energy work. But then, nobody I know that does chi gung claims that they do lead to the higher levels in energy work, where advanced abilities come out. Our School is one of the few places that will & do claim to teach you to the higher levels in energy work, where those advanced abilities and healing techniques we talk about will come out for you.

“Men of my age flock together; we are birds of a feather, as the old proverb says. “- Plato’s Republic.
A recent article in Wired magazine sparked a thought that resounded not only with the aforementioned proverb, but also with some of the wise council provided by Sifu Jones: training partners and the sense of “community” is important when undergoing Chi Energy training [specifically] and the esoteric journey [in general].
The concept of the “community” has evolved with technological advances. No longer limited by distance, family and friends are able to stay connected via a plethora of networking capabilities: telephone; email; web-cams; etceteras. Even virtual environments that form social networks provide a means of maintaining current and cultivating new relationships. Opportunities to befriend a friend’s friend are simply a “click” away. Regardless, however, of the nature of the relationships, up close and personal or electronic, the axiom holds true: “Birds of a feather flock together”.
“The Buddy System: How Medical Data Revealed Secret to Health and Happiness”, written by Jonah Lehrer and published in Wired documents relates the findings of Nicholas Christakis (Harvard social scientist) and James Fowler (UC San Diego political scientist). http://archive.is/aYj5y
Based upon research regarding a Framingham, Massachusetts community in 1948 that included parents, children, friends and friends of friends, the extrapolated data was jaw dropping.
Via the precision of statistical analysis and rigor, Christakis and Fowler noted some very interesting things about the Framingham, Massachusetts community that speak volumes to our everyday lives and choices we make. For example: “In the early ’70s, 65 percent of Framingham residents ages 40 to 49 smoked regularly. By 2001, only 22 percent consumed one or more cigarettes daily. But the smoke didn’t clear at random: Friends and family had a decisive influence.”
Fowler noted, concerning smoking, “People quit together, or they didn’t quit at all.”
This buddy system of sorts carries with it significant “weight”. The study also showed, with conclusive evidence, “If one person became obese, the likelihood that his friend would follow suit increased by 171 percent.”
In essence, the data uncovered and analysis performed confirmed a truth my mother expressed to me during my childhood that Sifu Jones later hinted at for students in the School of Chi Energy: we either are, or become, the company we keep.
Anyone engaged in esoteric practices and meditative efforts knows this to be a lonely journey. However, regardless of the end-goal, our day-to-day lives are filled with interactions and varying degrees of intimacy and relationships with individuals who may or may not have similar interests and habits. The research performed by Christakis and Fowler should cause each of us to take a moment to pause and reflect on our lives and the people with whom we associate:
Are we affiliated with people who are positive?
Are our closest friends’ sources of encouragement?
Do our actions and words match?
Are the members of our individual networks orchestrated in such a way that we make beautiful music or a discordant and meaningless mixture of sounds?
This is not to say that we should disassociate from coworkers who are not engaged in Chi Energy. Nor should refuse to eat lunch with friends who may be overweight, but we should, at the very least, be aware of these factors; we may, more importantly, act agents of change, should we find discrepancies within the lives of our friends and loved ones.
Fortunately, the School of Chi Energyoffers an Instructor’s forum where you can find support, positive words of encouragement and advice regarding the journey. The School of Chi training systems provide students with opportunities to fellowship and interact with other “like minded” men and woman at similar stages of their journey. Via conference calls, recorded Q & A sessions moderated by Sifu Jones and Sifu Cicero with students and certified instructors alike; we surround ourselves with a network of like-minded individuals, encouraging one another to fly higher and further.
“Courtesy of Chalmers University of Technology and World Science staff: Physicists in Sweden say they have managed to create light from vacuum, the closest thing to empty space known to exist. In findings published in the research journal Nature, the scientists said they verified an effect predicted over 40 years ago by capturing some of the particles of light, or photons, that constantly appear and disappear in the vacuum.
A diagram illustrating how virtual photons bounce off a “mirror” that vibrates at a speed approaching that of light. The round mirror in the picture is a symbol, and under that is the quantum electronic component (referred to as a SQUID), which acts as a mirror. This makes real photons appear in pairs, physicists say. (Credit: Philip Krantz, Chalmers U.) ——————————————————————————–
A vacuum is a space devoid of atoms, the units that make up air, other gases and familiar objects. That means a vacuum is the next best thing to a space truly empty of anything at all—something physicists say can’t exist in nature as we know it, thanks to a phenomenon called the uncertainty principle. This holds that nothing can be in a state that is pinned down with perfect precision.
The uncertainty principle ensures that the vacuum teems with various subatomic particles that flit in and out of existence. They appear for an instant and disappear again, the energy fueling their existence “borrowed” from the void. Since their life is so fleeting, they are called virtual particles.
In the new work, Christopher Wilson and colleagues at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden said they coaxed photons into leaving their “virtual” state and becoming real photons—measurable light. The physicist Gerald Moore predicted in 1970 that this should happen if virtual photons bounce off a mirror moving at nearly the speed of light, in a phenomenon called the dynamical Casimir Effect.
Casimir Effect & Black Holes
“Since it’s not possible to get a mirror to move fast enough, we’ve developed another method for achieving the same effect,” said Per Delsing, a physicist at Chalmers. “Instead of varying the physical distance to a mirror, we’ve varied the electrical distance to an electrical short circuit that acts as a mirror for microwaves.” The “mirror” consists of a device called a SQUID or superconducting quantum interference device, which is extremely sensitive to magnetic fields. By changing the direction of a magnetic field several billions of times a second the scientists said they made the “mirror” vibrate at one-fourth the speed of light.
“The result was that photons appeared in pairs from the vacuum, which we were able to measure in the form of microwave radiation,” said Delsing. “We were also able to establish that the radiation had precisely the same properties that quantum theory said it should have when photons appear in pairs in this way.” Quantum theory is the science of extremely small particles.
During the experiment, Delsing said, the “mirror” transferred some of its energy of motion to virtual photons so they could materialize. Göran Johansson, another physicist at Chalmers, said other particles might also be extracted from a vacuum in principle, but photons are easier. That’s because the equivalence of energy and mass, discovered by Einstein, implies that photons—being weightless—can be stimulated “out of their virtual state” with relatively little energy. Obtaining chunkier particles, such as electrons or protons, which make up atoms, “would require a lot more,” he added.
The scientists said the photons that appear in pairs in the experiment may be useful in the research field of quantum information, which includes the development of superfast “quantum” computers. But the main value of the work, they said, is that it aids our understanding of basic physical concepts, such as vacuum fluctuations. Some scientists believe these may have a connection with “dark energy” which drives the accelerating expansion of the universe, a discovery itself recognized this year with a Nobel Prize in physics.”
This article and video is about my visit to the Rhine Center’s Bio-Emissions Lab in Durham, NC. The recent invitation to the Center was extended by Executive Director John Kruth and Bill Joines who is the primary researcher and designer of this 30 year bio-energy research experiment.
The experiment will measure bio-emissions or bio-photons that come from the human body. There are electromagnetic fields in and around the body that communicate through a light source of bio-energy called bio-photons.
During the last thirty years the Rhine Center’s Bio-Emissions experiment measures for charge accumulation and electromagnetic bio-emissions. These measurements are being used to study bio-energy healers, meditators and people who claim unusual effects on electrical equipment.
The equipment used to measure bio-emissions are several special devices. The thermoelectric cooler is used to cool the photomultiplier tube to negative 26 degrees centigrade. This is done to reduce interference from the electrical devices.. The baseline is taken for each individual before they begin their healing, meditation, or energy work. The photomultiplier tube actually measures the increase in photon emissions from the baseline for the individual being tested.Then it is the photomultiplier tube that measures biophotons. When one photon of light strikes this sensitive surface it dislodges several other electrons. The dislodged electrons accelerate striking many more electrons that cause a change reaction event.
According to Wikipedia: “A bio photon (from the Greek βιο meaning “life” and φωτο meaning “light”), synonymous with ultra weak photon emission, low-level biological chemiluminescence, ultra weak bioluminescence, dark luminescence and other similar terms, is a photon of light emitted from a biological system and detected by biological probes as part of the general weak electromagnetic radiation of living biological cells. ”
Click here to watch:The School of Chi Energy Heals Bio-Emissions VideoSifu Cindy Cicero is the Director and Instructor for the School of Chi Energy who participated in this Rhine Center experiment. There are four individuals that have measured high amounts of biophotons in the ultraviolet range. The video results show that she is now the “fifth” unique individual with an unusual amount of bio-photon emission that they’ve been able to measure in the last 30 years.
The reason I feel I did so well on the test is that I built up my body’s nerve fibers using specially designed energy exercises. In the The School of Chi Energy a chi student is trained to build up the nerve fibers allowing for a stronger projection of bio-energy. When information contained in bio-photons are built up in high levels, your ability to control the hormonal flow of your body and other extreme psi abilities will be possible.
Bio-Photonics has been around awhile according to Mind Science News article: “Biophotons: DNA Radiance of Health or Disease http://youtu.be/2STCpAJtSRw
Professor Fritz-Albert Popp of International Institute of Biophysics (Biophotonics) in Germany has conducted research that confirms the existence of biophotons. Biophotons are weak light emitted by photons within the cells of our bodies. All cells emit light. Professor Popp says, “we are swimming in an ocean of light…” His research shows that DNA from living cells hold and release photons producing “biophotonic emissions” that radiate throughout the cellular network.
These biophotonic emissions of light have no mass, and they seem to be responsible for transmitting information inside of individual cells as well as radiating that information to other cells. These emissions may hold a key to our understanding of disease and wellness.”
It is the significant value of these types of bio-photon experiments that demonstrate those with unusually high emissions have a great influence (degree of change) over the physical reality of body and mind.

The field of Somatic Awareness is both deep and wide: each topic of interest and nuance goes deeper and deeper into research, theorems and [consequentially] more information found in a plethora of books. Here, we will take a look at Somatic Awareness from a very specific perspective: chi energy and somatic awareness.
Somatic Awareness Defined:
Merriam-Webster defines “somatic” as follows: “of, relating to, or affecting the body… as distinguished from the viscera”. The term “viscera” is of great importance in understanding the nature of what is called somatic, as the very meaning and play of this word build into the “awareness” thereof.
Again, going back to Merriam-Webster, we find that “viscera” is equivalent to all of the eternal organs located in the “great cavity of the trunk proper”, with regards to human anatomy. Furthermore, the term “visceral” speaks directly to: elemental emotions. In effect, the body is aware; and should be able to communicate its various [nutrition; rest; therapeutic] needs on a very basic, emotional level.
The awareness of this communication, the ability to perceive and understand this process of communicating with one’s own body [with a specific purpose/message] is the overarching goal of Somatic Awareness. This theme has been propagated throughout time in as many cultures. In Issai Chozanshi’s treatise of the martial arts, he quotes the Confucian sage’s somatic understanding of the truth of the self: “The scriptures are within yourself; [those that are written down] only point out what you have not been able to see on your own”.
The instruction we provide will help you get greater insight into your own personal truth, both physically and figuratively.
Somatic Awareness and Chi:
Chi, as defined by Eastern mystics, is synonymous with that which Western scientists have called the Quantum Field. The theories are markedly similar when compared side-by-side. Each [Eastern Mysticism and Quantum Mechanics] speaks of an energy field made up of tiny particles that comprise everything, and move through everything.
Somatically speaking, Eastern mystics have been investigating the “inner space” of the mind/body relationship whereas their Western counterparts have delved into the “outer space” of formally investigating and documenting that which is often perceived yet not specifically understood [as to why such is the case]; hence the relevance of Issai Chozanshi’s quote in the previous section.
Using scientific jargon, the phenomenon of somatic awareness is achieved thru: “bioentanglement- quantum connections within and among living systems” (Entangled Minds, Dean Radin).
Information transmitted on a quantum level, carried throughout space and time, is not only directly related to the functioning of the human nervous system, but also gives rise to more “esoteric” abilities beyond simply wiggling one’s finger: psi-related abilities and a thorough understanding of the physical and psychological “self” are among them.
Somatic Awareness and Chi Development:
We have found “somatic awareness” to be a natural and appreciated by-product of chi training and chi development.
With increased sensitivity to chi energy, greater sensitivity to the messages from our bodies and our surroundings are achieved; the information transmitted on the quantum level through “bioentanglement” can be easily received and deciphered on an emotional level with little to no internal, conscious “analysis”: the difference between “thinking” and “knowing” will be made apparent.
Chakra Truth & Vortexes. Are Chakras really Vortexes…
Below is a seminar on Chakra Truth and Vortexes. This is a Question and Answer Seminar about how Chi Energy students reach the higher levels at advanced abilities and healing techniques Vortexes. You’ll learn how the science versus the metaphysical philosophy of Chakras, can change the way you perform energy healing.
How can a person activate their own chakras? Does your school teach this and is it a safe thing to do?
I’ve heard you say that a person’s ability to visualize images well, will directly affect their ability to activate their own body’s chakras, why would this be true?
I understand why someone wants to activate their inner chakras because they want to get more power and energy from their body, but are there any other reasons to do this?
I went through a number of energy systems that taught you how to activate inner chakras, but after seeing how your school is teaching this, why is your method so different?
What’s the difference between going through the Kundalini experience and that of activating a chakra? Is it the same thing?

Meditation changes temperatures:
Mind controls body in extreme experiments
By William J. Cromie
In a monastery in northern India, thinly clad Tibetan monks sat quietly in a room where the temperature was a chilly 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Using a yoga technique known as g Tum-mo, they entered a state of deep meditation. Other monks soaked 3-by-6-foot sheets in cold water (49 degrees) and placed them over the meditators’ shoulders. For untrained people, such frigid wrappings would produce uncontrolled shivering.
If body temperatures continue to drop under these conditions, death can result. But it was not long before steam began rising from the sheets. As a result of body heat produced by the monks during meditation, the sheets dried in about an hour.
Attendants removed the sheets, then covered the meditators with a second chilled, wet wrapping. Each monk was required to dry three sheets over a period of several hours.
Why would anyone do this? Herbert Benson, who has been studying g Tum-mo for 20 years, answers that “Buddhists feel the reality we live in is not the ultimate one. There’s another reality we can tap into that’s unaffected by our emotions, by our everyday world. Buddhists believe this state of mind can be achieved by doing good for others and by meditation. The heat they generate during the process is just a by-product of g Tum-mo meditation.”
Benson is an associate professor of medicine at the Harvard Medical School and president of the Mind/Body Medical Institute at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. He firmly believes that studying advanced forms of meditation “can uncover capacities that will help us to better treat stress-related illnesses.”
Benson developed the “relaxation response,” which he describes as “a physiological state opposite to stress.” It is characterized by decreases in metabolism, breathing rate, heart rate, and blood pressure. He and others have amassed evidence that it can help those suffering from illnesses caused or exacerbated by stress. Benson and colleagues use it to treat anxiety, mild and moderate depression, high blood pressure, heartbeat irregularities, excessive anger, insomnia, and even infertility. His team also uses this type of simple meditation to calm those who have been traumatized by the deaths of others, or by diagnoses of cancer or other painful, life-threatening illnesses.
“More than 60 percent of visits to physicians in the United States are due to stress-related problems, most of which are poorly treated by drugs, surgery, or other medical procedures,” Benson maintains.
The Mind/Body Medical Institute is now training people to use the relaxation response to help people working at Ground Zero in New York City, where two airplanes toppled the World Trade Center Towers last Sept. 11. Facilities have been set up at nearby St. Paul’s Chapel to aid people still working on clearing wreckage and bodies. Anyone else who feels stressed by those terrible events can also obtain help at the chapel. “We are training the trainers who work there,” Benson says.
The relaxation response involves repeating a word, sound, phrase, or short prayer while disregarding intrusive thoughts. “If such an easy-to-master practice can bring about the remarkable changes we observe,” Benson notes. “I want to investigate what advanced forms of meditation can do to help the mind control physical processes once thought to be uncontrollable.”
Some Westerners practice g Tum-mo, but it often takes years to reach states like those achieved by Buddhist monks. In trying to find groups he could study, Benson met Westerners who claimed to have mastered such advanced techniques, but who were, in his words, “fraudulent.”
Benson decided that he needed to locate a religious setting, where advanced mediation is traditionally practiced. His opportunity came in 1979 when the Dalai Lama, spiritual leader of Tibet, visited Harvard University. “His Holiness agreed to help me,” recalls Benson. That visit was the beginning of a long friendship and several expeditions to northern India where many Tibetan monks live in exile.
During visits to remote monasteries in the 1980s, Benson and his team studied monks living in the Himalayan Mountains who could, by g Tum-mo meditation, raise the temperatures of their fingers and toes by as much as 17 degrees. It has yet to be determined how the monks are able to generate such heat.
The researchers also made measurements on practitioners of other forms of advanced meditation in Sikkim, India. They were astonished to find that these monks could lower their metabolism by 64 percent. “It was an astounding, breathtaking [no pun intended] result,” Benson exclaims.
To put that decrease in perspective, metabolism, or oxygen consumption, drops only 10-15 percent in sleep and about 17 percent during simple meditation. Benson believes that such a capability could be useful for space travel. Travelers might use meditation to ease stress and oxygen consumption on long flights to other planets.
In 1985, the meditation team made a video of monks drying cold, wet sheets with body heat. They also documented monks spending a winter night on a rocky ledge 15,000 feet high in the Himalayas. The sleep-out took place in February on the night of the winter full moon when temperatures reached zero degrees F. Wearing only woolen or cotton shawls, the monks promptly fell asleep on the rocky ledge, They did not huddle together and the video shows no evidence of shivering. They slept until dawn then walked back to their monastery.
Working in isolated monasteries in the foothills of the Himalayas proved extremely difficult. Some religious leaders keep their meditative procedures a closely guarded secret. Medical measuring devices require electrical power and wall outlets are not always available. In addition, trying to meditate while strangers attempt to measure your rectal temperature is not something most monks are happy to do.
To avoid these problems, Instructor in Psychology Sara Lazar, a Benson colleague, used functional magnetic resonance imaging to scan the brains of meditators at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. The subjects were males, aged 22-45, who had practiced a form of advanced mediation called Kundalini daily for at least four years. In these experiments, the obstacles of cold and isolation were replaced by the difficulties of trying to meditate in a cramped, noisy machine. However, the results, published in the May 15, 2000, issue of the journal NeuroReport, turned out to be significant.

“Lazar found a marked decrease in blood flow to the entire brain,” Benson explains. “At the same time, certain areas of the brain became more active, specifically those that control attention and autonomic functions like blood pressure and metabolism. In short, she showed the value of using this method to record changes in the brain’s activity during meditation.”
The biggest obstruction in further studies, whether in India or Boston, has always been money. Research proceeded slowly and intermittently until February 2001, when Benson’s team received a $1.25 million grant from Loel Guinness, via the beer magnate’s Kalpa Foundation, established to study extraordinary human capacities.
The funds enabled researchers to bring three monks experienced in g Tum-mo to a Guinness estate in Normandy, France, last July. The monks then practiced for 100 days to reach their full meditative capacity. An eye infection sidelined one of the monks, but the other two proved able to dry frigid, wet sheets while wearing sensors that recorded changes in heat production and metabolism.
Although the team obtained valuable data, Benson concludes that “the room was not cold enough to do the tests properly.” His team will try again this coming winter with six monks. They will start practice in late summer and should be ready during the coldest part of winter.
Benson feels sure these attempts to understand advanced mediation will lead to better treatments for stress-related illnesses. “My hope,” he says, “is that self-care will stand equal with medical drugs, surgery, and other therapies that are now used to alleviate mental and physical suffering. Along with nutrition and exercise, mind/body approaches can be part of self-care practices that could save millions of dollars annually in medical costs.”
Meditation… Here the heart/May give a useful lesson to the head. – Cowper
Chi Energy and Invisibility is a concept that predates written language; even early hunters and gatherers knew the advantages of being “unseen” when tracking prey. Camouflage techniques have improved throughout the centuries, and most recently, so have scientific breakthroughs regarding the possibility to achieve invisibility through technology.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, “invisible” is defined as: “incapable by nature of being seen; inaccessible to view.”
The ability to go unseen, to actually become “invisible”, is something many Chi Energy practitioners hope to achieve. Like the “magic cloaks” of science fiction and fantasy lore, many naysayers outside and within the Chi Energy Community will argue this to be impossible. Although this article will not go into the specifics on how to perform an “invisibility” technique, (or for all the Trekkies out there, “cloaking” technique), this article will focus on the actual scientific rationale as to why this works via technology, and provide insights as to why this can also be done with chi.
In an article published by Wired magazine, it was stated that: “the U.S. Army is getting closer to mastering man-made “meta-materials” that can bend light around an object.” Army Eyes Invisible Cloak
According David Smith, a professor at Duke University: “A meta-material is a material with unique properties that derive from its physical structure, not its chemical make up.” Smith’s findings suggest that, in order to actually manipulate light, the surface of the material being used (for example, the material in an invisibility cloak) must be much smaller than that of the wavelength of light being used. “The advances in nanotechnology are making it easier to create ever-smaller structures that can manipulate ever-smaller wavelengths,” said Smith. Invisibility Cloaking
Students of the Chi Energy School are finding, first-hand, the true nature of the physics behind chi, and how human beings actually interact with and [can] control the subatomic particles that build the Universe as the Scientific Community has recently come to know it.
Strings, Plank Length, and Chi:
As we delve deeper into the building blocks of the Universe, we find that the smallest particle, which cannot be broken down any further, is a “string”.
“String theory is a unified theory of the universe, postulating that fundamental ingredients of nature are not zero-dimensional point particles but tiny one-dimensional filaments called strings; string theory harmoniously unites quantum mechanics and general relatively, the previously known laws of the small and the large, that are otherwise incompatible.”- Brian Greene, The Elegant Universe
According to string theorists, it is proposed that strings are the smallest forms of energy in the known Universe. A string’s length is “about 10 -33 centimeters,” Brian Greene The Elegant Universe. This length is called “Plank length”, and is smaller than the subatomic particles that make-up the photons that, in turn, make visible light. Please note: nanotechnology has yet to reach the subatomic sizes of plank length, however; practitioners Chi Energy can. Chi is a form off electromagnetic energy (biophotons). Human beings produce bio-electromagnetic energy; said energy serves as a key component of the functioning of the body, even at the cellular level. It only stands to reason that many of us are indeed sensitive to and can harness/cultivate more.
Students of the Chi Energy are given step-by-step instruction regarding how to become sensitive to as well as intuitive with the electromagnetic energy they produce as well as the ebb and flow of the electromagnetic energy in the Universe. Yes, this is a tall order, however; with the assistance of dedicated Instructions as well as a thorough curriculum students of the Chi Energy Heals School are taught to think and feel at the subatomic level. The possibilities are truly limited only by the individual’s mind. Using chi to wrap the body in light-diffracting particles is something that is certainly conceivable and, given the proper training, certainly achievable.
We at the School of Chi Energy have found that chi energy is best developed when a healthy mind and a healthy body work in unison.
Henri Bergson, the French Philosopher who won the 1928 Nobel Prize in Literature, is attributed as to have said: “The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.” Many students of the The School of Chi Energy Heals are experiencing a level of visual acuity never before experienced. These visual “side effects”, “floaties” [in the fore gaze] and wisp-like movements [from the peripherals] are typical side effects for anyone practicing Qigong activities, and even more so for those engaged in the School of Chi Energy training.Although speaking metaphorically, Bergson’s genius was more accurate than the science of the 1920s could immediately prove. Amazingly complex, the human eye perceives much more than typically given credit and is the focus of this article. Not only will this article discuss the nature of what these intangible “floaties” are, but equally important, provide scientific fact (with accompanying references) demonstrating how it is possible for the eye to register said phenomena.The anatomy of the human eye is anything but basic. Within the confines of a very small space (approximately 1 inch long, 1 inch deep and 1 inch wide), the human eye boasts of intricate machinations of about 15 working parts. How Vision WorksDeeper still, within these subsystems, specifically the retina, are individual photoreceptors that are responsible for sensing light and varying combinations of the visible spectrum and sensing movement. Men and women practicing chi gung, and more specifically, students of the School of Chi Energy, should direct their attention to three specific areas of interest: rods; cones; and the optic nerve.
Rods and cones are photoreceptors and reside in the retina of the human eye.Whereas the typical human eye has approximately 120 millions rods, the same eye has only 6-7 million cones. The reason for this, e.g. the role and functionality between the rods and cones, as well as their geographic distribution, will become of particular interest to the active reader. Rods and Cones and Density on the Retina of the Human EyeCones are responsible for detecting light at higher levels of brightness (lumens) and can differentiate color. They are typically broken down into three major subgroups: short wavelength sensitive cones (S-cones) responsible for interpreting “blues”; medium wavelength sensitive cones (M-cones), responsible for interpreting “greens”, and “long wavelength sensitive cones (L-cones), responsible for interpreting “reds”. Rods and Cones Colors & What Wavelength Goes With What ColorAlthough there are significantly less cones than rods, with a ration of 1/20, cones are focused in the very center of the fovea, whereas rods reside in the actual peripherals of said area of the eye. Rods and Cones of the Human Eye.Rods, conversely, do not mediate color vision; nor do they have a high spatial acuity. Rods, however, provide a level of amplification that enables “single quantum detection”. Rods and ConesA photon, the smallest packet into which light can be broken into, is a quantum particle. The tiny particles that build the very Universe, are, in fact, termed: “quanta”. This is to say, that, the “floaties” we see, are the natural building blocks of the Universe. The human eye is sensitive to the degree that is able to register even a single photon packet of light energy. As our sensitivity grows, we interpret more of these of these quantum particles as “floaties”. In essence, we are realizing that we can, indeed, see “chi”.[Articles, such as “What is Chi and Electricity” and “Chi Energy and the Biophoton“ provide detail and addition research and reference materials regarding quantum mechanics and how these accompanying subatomic particles correlate to chi.]Furthermore, because rods are located along the peripherals of the fovea, as indicated by the graphic below, we can easily surmise why the human eye not only better detects motion via peripheral vision, but also, why we tend to see the movement of the aforementioned subatomic particles via the same vantage point. Rods and Cones and Density on the Retina of the Human EyeThere are approximately 50-60 million rods located along the outset of each fovea of the eye; each individual rod is capable of detecting a single quantum phenomena. It is no small wonder that humans engaged in chi building disciplines become aware of and experience this heightened state of vision.
The Optic Nerve
Popular neuroimaging techniques, such as the Electroencephalogram (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (meg) rely upon imaging devices that create pictures of the human brain. Each respective device is tuned to register electronic (EEG) and magnetic (meg) waves emitted by the nerve fibers within the human brain. [As an aside, the nervous system of the entire human body conducts electricity.] Electroencephalogram (EEG) & Magnetoencephalography (MEG)The optic nerve within the human eye provides a direct feed of electric impulse/information from the eye to the brain, allowing the brain to receive and interpret the images of visual sensory information. How Vision WorksFor men and women training in the School of Chi Energy, especially those within the Instructor Years, a “moment of clarity” should be quickly approaching. Traditional chi building exercises result in levels of sensitivity to said bio-electric energy to varying degrees. Chi Energy Training, as taught thru Sifu Jones’ methodology, deliberately engages the body’s nerve fibers to better harness and more efficiently utilize this same energy.The deliberate build-up through life enhancing and health promoting exercises, all holistically integrated for a synergistic effect, result in heightened awareness and sensitivities to these quantum phenomena [chi]. With the nerve fibers of the entire body, including the optic fiber, operating with a higher throughput of electric current, it is no wonder that we can not only sense and feel chi energy, but, in keeping with the topic of this article, see it as well.The French novelist Marcel Proust said: “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands, but in seeing with new eyes”. We at the School of Chi Energy invite you to not only see with new eyes, but to join us in this voyage of discovery.V/r Don Brown [Certified Instructor] for the School of Chi EnergySeeing is Believing
Chi Energy & Quantum Entanglement: “When you look into the abyss, the abyss also looks into you,” Nietzsche.
Nietzsche’s aphorism has a profound truth that is now being investigated by the scientific community. It also has important ramifications for those doing any type of chi cultivation method. From a scientific viewpoint, the term “abyss” is interchangeable with that of an “experiment” or “system”; that which is being “observed”.
Recently, the scientific community has come to understand that the observer of an experiment/system of study is not impartial; the observer, in the act of observing, is actually part of the experiment and his/her expectations actually influence the outcome of the experiment. [For a more detailed explanation of this phenomenon, see any book or web resource on the dual behavior of light waves/particles or theories in quantum mechanics].
With this understanding, we can paraphrase Nietzsche: When the scientist looks into a system, the system also looks into the scientist.
This interplay, a form of “quantum entanglement” (a term coined by Dean Radin), happens not only at the sub-atomic level, but bubbles-up into large-scale happenings of our material world. For example, the tried-and-true practice of visualizing success, from high performance in sporting contests to job interviews to academic achievement, has shown to have favorable outcomes. The act of desiring the outcome of a situation (system/experiment) actually influences the outcome of said events on some level; the goal, then, of a chi student, is to develop one’s own abilities to gain a greater sphere of influence in his/her life.
Which leads to a very important concept for an individual involved in chi development: the nature of the abyss.
As quantum mechanics has shown, everything is interrelated on [at the very least] a sub-atomic level. With that being the case, any inquiry, investigation, or observation into a “system” results in that same system becoming directly involved with the observer.
The implications are both many as well as deep.
Psi related abilities, such as clairvoyance, ESP, telepathy, which were once upon a time viewed as an outsider looking in are now seen more along the lines of an outsider joining the observation; upon joining the observation, the individual with said psi capabilities has introduced him/herself to those involved and shared a discourse. The sensitivity of those involved and the skill to which the chi practitioner uses his/her techniques determines the size of the footprint left behind. This is all to say: When a chi practitioner performs telepathy, telepathy is performed unto the chi practitioner”.
Please do not gloss over this concept; think long and hard as to what this really means and more importantly, to where this may lead.
