The Power of Forming Chi in Place

The School of Chi EnergyForming Chi in place provides the Energy Worker the ability to use the energy in a repeatable, predictable fashion.


The power of forming chi in place, has become a tool. As the old saying goes: “The right tool for the right job”.  Blobs, as it turns out, are generally only useful for B grade Sci-Fi and horror movies. Real tools, real forms, are for real applications.  How does chi get formed? With the mind – our thoughts are able to mold the bio photons and hold the image of that which we want them to be and as such, affect the outcome through visualization. Our ability to anticipate and expect the behavior of the photons is very similar to the famous Double Slit Experiment – our expectations affect and influence the outcome of the behavior of the photons.

Forming chi is child’s play; this is not a euphemism. Forming chi into a specific, repeatable shape through visualization is something that is terribly easy and amazingly difficult – depending on what you believe and how much you believe. Again, think back to the double slit experiment: your expectations determine the outcome of the behavior of the photon. Through repeated practice, we can train ourselves what to expect and what we believe will happen.

The specific of shape is not the focus of this article – that is something reserved for those actively enrolled in the School. For this discussion, we would like to take this opportunity to introduce the concept of the atomic trap. Our repository is full of documentation, reference materials and articles pointing to the importance of temperature control. The role temperature plays in energy development, biophotonic manipulation, is critical and often missed in traditional chi gung. Cooling the energy allows the subatomic particles to clump together into larger particles and, at the same time, creates the conditions through which when formed into a specific shape, the biophotons will remain in place. Enter the atomic trap.

Atomic traps are techniques physicists use when manipulating cooled atoms that would otherwise fall prey to gravitational forces. These subatomic particles would bounce around and lose their form, attracted by the gravity exerted by all the matter of our universe, including those forming the biophotons and whatever is around us. This would do us little benefit when working so diligently to mold the biophotons into a form. Interestingly enough, the mechanisms through which we form and cool the energy, along with the very nature of the biophotons, lends itself to the creation of atomic traps. In this discussion, we will take note of one particular atomic trap through which many quantum experiments are performed. This atomic trap is also curiously similar to method involved in forming biophotons.

The magnetic optical trap, MOT, uses magnetic fields to hold the atoms in place and lasers to cool the temperature of the atoms. Most who have performed the “palm test” have felt the magnetic field between the hands, similar to pointing like poles of a magnet towards each other. As noted in many of our articles, human beings give off electrical signals – hence the reason magnetic scanning and imaging technologies used in hospitals and security systems work. Visualizing the biophotons taking a particular shape creates a laser effect; each line acting as the boundary/outline of the form is in effect a laser. Using the transference techniques taught in the Chi Energy Cultivation Method  provides the correct attributes of the energy, thus cooling the temperature of the lasers, and assisting in the development of the form.  Visit our School of Chi Energy FAQ to learn more.

What practitioners of the School of Chi Energy call “formed chi” are akin to the technique physicists call Magnetic Optical Trap. What takes place next when the chi is finally formed takes the practitioner to a whole new level…

Meditation Changes Temperature

Meditation changes temperatures:

Mind controls body in extreme experiments

By William J. Cromie

Gazette Staff

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.”

Breathtaking results

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.

Overcoming obstacles

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.”

Visual Chi Energy Floaties

Chi Energy Training

 Visual Chi Energy Floaties – Seeing is Believing

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 Works Deeper 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 Eye Cones 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 Color Although 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 Cones A 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 Eye There 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 Works For 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.

Chi Energy & Quantum Entanglement

Chi Energy Training

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.

Chi Energy and Natural Killer Cells

Chi Energy and Natural Killer Cells

At The School of Chi Energy we take a holistic approach to the online training we provide for our students. Chi development requires the integration of a healthy mind with a healthy body.

One of our Certified Instructors, Don Brown [who is an Engineer by trade], is writing a series of articles to show the relationship between science and Chi and how it related to this particular method of Chi development. In this article, Don provides us with an overview of the biological processes that take place within the body that will enhance the body’s ability to fight off sickness, enhance health, and as a result; help the body grow in strength and endurance.

NK Cells

Natural Killer cells (NK cells) are the body’s first-line of innate immune defense. The term “natural killer” is a misnomer, coined during initial research in the late 70s and early 80s where biologists at the time were not completely aware of what triggered these defense mechanisms; it was originally thought these cells immediately patrolled the body upon creation looking for pathogens. This is not completely true. NK cells work in conjunction with other white blood cells, “T” and “B”, and seek out specific pathogens the others are unable to destroy.

Research has shown that NK cells are produced in the bone marrow, and reside in the lymph nodes and the tonsils. “Natural killer cells burst forth from the tonsils, lymph nodes and spleen, and destroy infected and cancerous cells while the immune system’s T and B cells are still mobilizing,” says Münz. “Without natural killer cells, threatening conditions can get a strong foothold before the adaptive immune response kicks in.”  Science Daily: Natural Killer Cells Are Made, Not Born

By releasing the proteins perforin and proteases onto the membrane of the virus, the NK cell induces apoptosis; a process similar to infecting the invading cell with a programming sequence causing it to self-destruct. WikiPedia: Natural Killer Cells

This is a preferred mechanism when compared to lancing, (physically cutting through the membrane of the invading organism), which would only release the contents of the invading cell into the body.

There is something interesting I found during my research, however, that I would like to share at this juncture and echoes many sentiments shared within this particular chi energy school community. It turns out that a healthy “mind” does indeed lead to a healthy “body”, and the ability for NK cells to operate.

Stress: the NK Cell Suppressor

There have been countless studies on the detrimental affects of stress on the body: physical; emotional; and psychological stresses all do terrible things to the human body over prolonged periods of time.

  1. Dan Kenner, Ph.D., OMD, noted: “When confronted by emotional or physical stress, the brain produces a neurotransmitter that helps initiate the fight or flight which directly suppresses NK cell function and other aspects of cellular immunity that relate to innate immunity.”
  1. Kenner goes further, explaining that “emotional stresses such as grief and fear are shown to suppress cellular immunity and favor inflammatory immune responses, as are physical stresses such as heavy metal poisoning, chemical exposure, nutritional deficiencies, hormone imbalances, accidental injury and medical procedures.”

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome And Natural Killer Cells: How stress affects anxiety, fatigue and chronic illness

NK Cells and the Mind

The Chi Energy Method offers both breadth and depth with regards to energy training, meditation and instruction, so at the School of Chi Energy we provide you with not just coping mechanisms, but means of overcoming the pressures of physical living. We understand the connection between the mind and body, and know that with proper nutrition, exercise, and healthy thought practices, you can assist your body in operating effectively and efficiently.

Through consistent practice, daily meditations cannot only reduce the effects of stress, but actually rid yourself of stress altogether. Remember, stress actually suppresses NK cells: the longer and more often we are exposed to stressful situations without the tools with which to successful transcend, the greater the likelihood that the body succumbs to pathogens, viruses, and cancers alike.

NK Cells and Chi Energy Training

The specifics of “Chi Energy Training” enhance NK cell potency and efficiency. The particulars of the The School of Chi Energy method, each and every exercise, promote the development, cultivation, and functionality of NK cells.

As previously noted, NK cells originate from within “bone marrow”. Interestingly enough, “Bio-magnetism: An Awesome Force in Our Lives”, an article published by Reader’s Digest (January 1983), highlights some of the [still] cutting edge concepts the scientific community is, and has been, practicing:

When a patient with a broken leg that is not healing properly comes to Dr. Basset (Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City, NY), he is likely to go home with two heavy pads connected by wires to a box that can plug into an electrical wall socket. The patient puts one pad on each side of his broken bone and turns on the device. Coils of wire in the pad induce a pulsing electromagnetic field into his flesh and bone — a field of energy that somehow commands the bone to heal itself.

The electrical impulses that heal a broken bone; make healthy a broken bone, assist in the overall healthy and functionality of the bone; e.g. bone marrow can make more and more NK cells when stimulated with electricity.

Although NK cells originate from bone marrow, the cells themselves reside in the lymphatic system, tonsil, and spleen.  We can intuit from Dr. Basset’s research that the same benefits from exposing bones to low-level electric pulses assist in their healing, consistent exposure to similar electrical phenomena will also assist the organs in a similar fashion. Specifically, in this instance, providing the spleen with health enhancing energy will in-turn, super charge the NK cells residing in said organ.

Finally, it should be noted that NK cells travel to the infected sites within the body through blood within the veins and arteries. The School of Chi Energy’s primary flow pattern exercise called Nerve Fiber Building not only mimic the rotational spin of the quantum particles which build up electricity and chi (photons and electrons), but also provide an aerobic quality that is by nature, heart healthy and promotes enhanced circulation. By improving the body’s circulation, the NK cells can reach the infected area(s) faster and with greater efficiency, without having to use the body’s energy stores; this way, the body can focus on using the NK cells proteins to destroy the pathogens as opposed to releasing the hormones which create a hostile environment (stress) that will suppress the NK cells, and thereby leaving the body open to additional infections as well as deteriorated performance across the board.

We at The School of Chi Energy have found that chi is best developed when a healthy mind and a healthy body work in unison. As the preceding article demonstrates, we understand the connections between the mind and body and take these factors into account in all of our chi development exercises and meditation courses.

In the interim: be well; be mindful.

Joy in Recalibrating Chi Energy Fluctuations

SchoolpicJoy in Recalibrating Chi Energy Fluctuations

by Don E. Brown II, MSIS
Certified Instructor; for the School of Chi Energy

A catch phrase often used by the Instructors of the Chi Energy method is the need to “recalibrate”.  Often used in relation to volume of speech and tones, recalibration is a call to mindfulness.

Merriam Webster defines “calibrate” as follows: to adjust precisely for a particular function; to measure precisely; especially : to measure against a standard.  Recalibration, then, is a resetting of these levels so as to continued predictable [and desired] results.

This article is largely for my own edification inasmuch as it is for the rest of the student and instructors at the School of Chi Energy.  Recently I hit a new threshold in my energy cultivation: my overall throughput of bio electromagnetic energy has increased exponentially, and as such, my previous default settings concerning my tones, volume of speech, and overarching chi building exercises require modification: recalibration is in order.

This is something with which I have been struggling for the past 3 weeks.  Even as a Certified Instructor, the act of recalibrating is a challenge.  It is mind-boggling that an increase in chi can affect so many aspects of our lives.  Tones that are personally comfortable come across as harsh, bordering on “angry”; volumes that feel and sound appropriate come across as excessively loud, borderline “shouting”.  It is a very frustrating and confusing phenomenon: during periods like this, individuals with whom we have had fantastic rapports begin to physically back away during conversation and avoid us whereas they once upon a time drew-in simply to be closer to us.

I liken these challenges to a professional athlete- a golfer, basketball player, or quarterback.  Our chi building exercises are similar, in this analogy, to traditional strength training.  After repeated concentrated efforts, an athlete’s bench or military press may gain an increase of an additional 30 to 50 pounds.  Interestingly enough, the celebration is short-lived.  The increase in strength means that their previous strength related efforts need to be recalibrated.  Something that once upon a time required a 35% effort to reach a target now requires less than that; the specifics can only be determined via continued trial and error- their newly developed strength requires less physical effort, but an increase in mindfulness and finesse.

I have experienced this firsthand on many occasions, and continue to do so.  Years ago, via strength training, the same perceived percentage of efforts that I used open the car door resulted in me actually tearing the handle off.  Amazing the first time; confusing the second; by the third time, my Wife was utterly annoyed with me across the board.

Although my challenge in recalibrating my energies is a frustrating task, I am teaching myself to enjoy it.  It means that my energies are growing- which is the whole point of training.  It also means that I am getting closer and closer to achieving my chi-related goals.  Furthermore, although recalibration means that I am technically “off” my desired levels, I view this as an opportunity to fine-tune my sensitivities- not just against myself, but with others as well.

Many of you can nod your head in agreement with this article, as you have experienced this on occasion.  As we grow our energies and abilities, the art of recalibration goes from a “task” to a profound “joy”.  And for those of you who have not yet experienced this- you have something for which to look forward.

Is Chi Energy Like Bioenergy?

www.chienergyheals.comIs Chi Energy Like Bioenergy?


Although surrounded by ancient mysticism, chi energy is that which Western scientists have called the Quantum Field. The theories are markedly similar when compared side-by-side.  Each [Chinese Mysticism and Quantum Mechanics[1]] speaks of an energy field made up of tiny particles that comprise everything, and move through everything.  Looking at it from a scientific point of view, the shroud of mystery is removed, and an objective, scientific perspective remains; this is the basis of this article .

Chi Energy and the Human Body

With the understanding that chi energy, synonymous with quantum particles, makes up everything and moves through every object, it logically extends that human beings are also made up of these small particles and as both camps postulate, this energy moves through everything.

In the movie the, the Matrix, it is proposed that:“The human body generates more bio-electricity than a 120-volt battery and over 25,000 BTUs of body heat”.

This is a form of energy.

“ According to the Center for Space Power and Advanced Electronics, a NASA commercial center in Alabama, the human body is capable of producing 11,000 watt hours. Broken into usable terms, waiting to be harvested are 81 watts from a sleeping person, 128 from a soldier standing at ease, 163 from a walking person, 407 from a briskly walking person, 1,048 from a long-distance runner, and 1,630 from a sprinter, according to the center. “

When explaining chi energy to friends, I like to do a simple example that many people can perform. Place your index finger in the air; wiggle it. This is a rudimentary example of electricity in motion; more specifically, bio-electromagnetic energy, in motion.

The brain sends an electric signal through the nervous system that reaches the finger, informing it to wiggle as your thoughts suggested. These electrical impulses that the body produces are manifestations of quantum mechanics: chi energy. Extending this analogy, we can view the nervous system as a bio-electromagnetic circuit; this has huge implications with regards to the Chi Energy Heals exercises, such as the Nerve Fiber building, which we will speak to in separate articles in appropriate depth and detail.

Chi Energy and the Brain

Because everything is made of chi energy, and because chi moves through everything, it is possible for the human brain to interact with these energy particles with varying effects and abilities, for example: Extra Sensory Perception[3] and psychokinesis[4].

In fact, Dr Stuart Hameroff has likened the human brain’s microtubules as the bridge between classical physics and quantum mechanics. Dr. Hameroff proposes that the flickering “on-and-off” of these microtubules creates an environment where quantum events occur & such is Chi Energy [5].
