At the base of the neck is the longest nerve in the body called the vagus nerve, a nerve that is a critical component to the entire nervous system of the human body. The vagus nerve is a mixed nerve and emerges from the medulla oblongata numerous roots. It innervates the organs of the neck, chest cavity, digestive tract, organs retro-peritoneal space. It contains motor, sensory and autonomic (parasympathetic) fibers. According to Dr. Tracey, the vagus nerve transmits electrical impulses to and from several organs and the brain. What is important to consider is that the vagus nerve is part of the circuit that is the human nervous system and responsible for the transmission of the chemical agent responsible for inflammation: tumor necrosis factor (TNF).
At the School of Chi Energy, advanced energy cultivation is based on a Nerve Fiber Building Exercise. Without proper instruction the buildup of the nerve fiber system is wrought with potential pitfalls. Seemingly innocuous, these dangers are anything but; life threatening and otherwise, chi training is the double edged sword; without proper guidance and mindful engagement, that which makes your life better can just as easily cause unforeseen and far reaching harm. Aware of this aspect of chi energy, the two Sifus often encourage students and instructors alike to take the time to transfer a coolness into the base of the neck throughout the day which directly affects the vagus nerve, but especially prior to Nerve Fiber Building and other Chi Energy Training exercises. The reasons are scientifically fascinating.
In the article, “Shock Medicine” the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research documents the research by Dr. Kevin Tracey and his exploration into the field of “electronic medicine”. According to Dr. Tracey’s research, the vagus nerve has the ability to control inflammation within the human body. Whereas there are moments when inflammation is the correct response, it is a rarity indeed. More often than not, inflammation is a health hazard and left unchecked, can result in many diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
Heretofore, the interconnected nature of the nervous system and the immune system was something that was largely overlooked. It would seem that these two systems are integrated in more ways than we are currently aware. At the cutting edge of this research is the vagus nerve.
Dr. Tracey developed an electrical device that stimulates the vagus nerve and prevents production of TNF by a type of immune cell called a macrophage, effectively inhibiting inflammation. Students at the School of Chi Energy can do this very same thing without expensive and invasive surgery. Students find by simply following the instructions provided in the online school instructed by Sifus’ Jones and Cicero with a step by step method of building bioenergy or better said biophotons. In tandem, the School of Chi Energy Practitioner is taught by being mindful of particular attributes of how to change their inner temperature thus directly effecting the entirety of the vagus nerve. These key attributes are how they can control the response of the vagus nerve and how it interacts with the larger circuit that is our nervous system and have it propagate the tangible sensations of a good feeling and a cool temperature throughout our host bodies, feeding into the organs themselves.
Most energy systems also rely on building up their blood circulatory system trying to get their body’s hormonal flow to be stronger thinking that this will led to more chi capacity. This often causes a person to go thru unwanted bad side effects, like headaches, muscle or organ pains and more; it can happen when too many hormones enter your body’s blood system too soon or as a result of heating up the inside of your body too much & for too long a time. Plus often times a person building up chi too fast in those ways can come across to others in an intense or aggressive manner. We show a Student how to by-pass all these possible trouble areas that can cause a person problems, while they are trying to harness a lot of energy. Students will learn how they can go straight to building up their body’s chi energy capacity and how they will make substantial gains in a minimum amount of time.
It is in the body’s nerve fiber system that the body puts off bio-energy or these bio-photons that people want to be able to cultivate in a big way. Elsewhere in the website we explain exactly what bio-photons are and how they are projected from the body thru your nervous system. We’ll show you how scientists can prove their existence thru the machines they have built to do so. See the Rhine Center Experiment conducted with one of our Instructors for more information on that process. It is thru this new way of cultivating chi energy in large amounts that is performed completely different than traditional styles teach their exercises, that we have discovered ways to form your chi into place. It is in learning this kind of forming your chi in place process that will lead Students to the higher levels possible with energy work.
Sadly, when we fail to remain mindful and control the attributes, electricity, bio or otherwise, is still electricity: it is hot and very destructive. Left unchecked, inflammation is the least of the concerns. However, mindful guidance of the attributes of bio electricity and how we engage our host bodies makes all the difference.
Hopefully these sentiments will resonate and encourage you in your training.
In the interim, as always: Be well; be mindful. V/r
Sifu Brown MSIS [Certified Instructor for the School of Chi Energy]
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.
If you are ready to see what the latest medical & scientific research says about energy cultivation, then you should check out the research we conducted at our School www.chienergyheals.com and find out if you too, would benefit from a program like ours.
The School of Chi Energy teaches students how to build up “structured energy forms” from their body’s entire nerve fiber system. The nerve fibers electrical fire and release biophotons. Students tangibly tune into their energy forms because photons under a cooling process become formed into specialized energy forms. They learn how to perform a nerve fiber building energy exercise that builds up this tangible form of biophotons with transferring a cool temperature and a good feeling into the biophotons. Chi Energy Students learn to use the biophotons forms for advanced abilities and healing techniques.
It was thought that photons were mass-less. Now physics is catching up with the fact that photons can indeed become mass under certain conditions. Mass = tangibility. “It’s a photonic interaction that’s mediated by the atomic interaction,” Lukin said. “That makes these two photons behave like a molecule, and when they exit the medium they’re much more likely to do so together than as single photons.” Lukin also suggested that the system might one day even be used to create complex three-dimensional structures – such as crystals – wholly out of light.
Recently, Sifu Cindy Cicero did that which many energy healers engaged in an energy healing profession would love to do: Sifu Cicero was able to have her bio electromagnetic energy [chi] measured via a well-documented and innovative technique. With an open mind and lighthearted spirit, Sifu Cicero allowed the scientists at the Rhine Research Center, located on the beautiful campus of Duke University, to measure her electromagnetic output.
The text that follows introduces the Rhine Research Center and serves as a backdrop to the experiment in which Sifu Cicero participated and; provides multiple layers of detail describing electromagnetic energy and the biophotonic nature of the human being.
This mp3 explains about BioPhotons and The Rhine Experiment
The significance to the Professional Energy Healer will be evident.
The Rhine Research Center
Established in 1927, the Rhine Research Center was Duke University’s laboratory focused on the investigation of psychic phenomena. In fact, the Rhine Research Center gave birth to the well-known Zener [ESP] cards, and helped pave the way for the rigorous field of scientific study we now call parapsychology.
Although their mission statement has broadened somewhat over the years, the Rhine center, now a standalone complex, is better poised to investigate the study of “human consciousness – its reach, its reality, its durability, its healing capacity, and its spiritual dimension”. This mission statement dovetails perfectly into the practice and charter of The School of Chi Energy.
Bio-Emissions Lab Experiment
As previously mentioned, Sifu Cindy Cicero had the unique and privileged opportunity to have her bio electromagnetic energy measured by the scientists at the Rhine Research Center. In truth, the privilege is ours, as Sifu Cicero provided us with a video of the experiment as well as a first person account of her experience here: Bio-Emissions Lab Experiment.
At this juncture we will turn our attention away from the experiment and the term “biophoton”, and look to the more widely understood term “photon”. After gaining an understanding of the nature and behavior of the photon, we will return to Sifu Cicero’s experience at the Rhine Research Center.
Maxwell introduced the concept of electromagnetic waves in 1865 via his groundbreaking paper “A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field”. It was here that Maxwell established that electric and magnetic fields travel through space in the form of waves, and that light is an electromagnetic phenomenon as well.
Light waves, identified through their wavelengths and frequency, come in many flavors.
“The size of a wave is measured as its wavelength, which is the distance between any two corresponding points on successive waves, usually peak to peak or trough to trough. The wavelengths of the light we can see range from 400 to 700 nanometers (or billionths of a meter). But the full range of wavelengths included in the definition of electromagnetic radiation extends from 0.1 nanometers, as in gamma rays, to centimeters and meters, as in radio waves.”
“The frequency is the number of waves that pass a point in space during any time interval, usually one second. We measure it in units of cycles (waves) per second, or hertz. The frequency of visible light is referred to as color, and ranges from 430 trillion hertz, seen as red, to 750 trillion hertz, seen as violet.”
Please take special note of the information regarding “wavelength” and “frequency”; these concepts play an integral part in the Rhine Research Center experiment where Sifu Cicero raised the bar and demonstrated what sets The International Online School of Bio-Energy Training apart from all others.
This is important because, energy – especially electromagnetic energy, is measurable.
The relationship between the energy in an electromagnetic wave is proportional to its frequency:
High frequency electromagnetic waves have high energy
Low frequency electromagnetic waves have low energy
As per Figure 1, we can see that the shorter the wavelength, the higher the frequency, and thus, the higher the energy of the electromagnetic wave.
Unfortunately, scaling in Figure 1 is inaccurate. In fact, “visible light occupies only one-thousandth of a percent of the spectrum”.
Figure 2 “The Electromagnetic Spectrum” provides a better visualization between the length of an electromagnetic wave in comparison to objects with which we are generally familiar.
Worthy of note in Figure 2 is the inclusion of “temperature” in relation to wavelength. This too is very important to the Rhine Research Center experiment for reasons discussed later in this discourse; furthermore, the concept of temperature, including sensitivity and control of, is a foundational cornerstone of The International Online School of Bio-Energy Training. The article “Chi Energy and Temperature of Light” provides well documented research into this abstract concept.
Figure 2 The Electromagnetic Spectrum
Here we can see that, like Figure 1, Gamma rays have the highest levels of electromagnetic energy. Generally speaking, Gamma rays are extremely dangerous to humans, and most animal life forms; however, when focused, Gamma rays have the ability to save lives. Gamma-knife radiosurgery is a noninvasive type of surgery used to treat brain tumors. According to the Mayo Clinic:
“The precision of gamma-knife radiosurgery results in minimal damage to healthy tissues surrounding the target and, in some cases, a lower risk of side effects compared with other types of radiation therapy. Also, gamma-knife radiosurgery is often a safer option than is traditional brain surgery. Gamma-knife radiosurgery is usually a one-time therapy completed in a single day.”
Awareness of the gamma knife is very important. Although many people training in traditional chi gung programs never reach this level of energy development and projection, Sifu Cicero’s experience at the Rhine Research Center makes it clear that it is not only within reason, but expected that practitioners following the training curriculum of The International Online School of Bio-Energy Training will find themselves at this echelon of energy cultivation.
[For students already engaged in this methodology, you should get a better appreciation for the safeguards built into the system, designed to keep you from causing harm to yourself and to others while developing your burgeoning abilities.]
At this point in the discussion, it would behoove us to take a momentary pause, as we have covered quite a bit of information. Although it may not be readily apparent, rest assured that everything presented prior to now forms an intellectual building block for the topics to follow, leading up to the apex of this discourse: human beings not only give off light in the form of biophotons, but are, in fact, at the most rudimentary level, made up of light itself.
The term “atomic” is synonymous with immense power and the potential of danger: from nuclear power plants to atomic weapons, harvesting the energetic properties of the atom is a scientific goal since the discovery of the atom.
Returning to Figure 2, we see that atoms are small, very small, and reside in the range of the X-ray wavelength. Just to the right of the atom is the “atomic nuclei”, which is even smaller, and has a higher level of [potential] energy.
Whereas we all know that atoms are key building blocks of all matter in the Universe, it is good to take a moment and refresh our memories regarding the atom’s internal structure, as this plays directly into the topic at hand.
The American Nuclear Society provides a great amount of information regarding the properties and behavior of atoms. According to the ANS, atoms consist of “protons (with a positive electrical charge), electrons (with a negative electrical charge), and neutrons (with no electrical charge)”.
Protons and neutrons gather in a dense cluster, called the nucleus, while electrons orbit the nucleus much like weather satellites orbit the Earth. Here is where things get interesting.
Electrons are quirky characters. Contrary to popular belief, electrons do not float about as if a mist or cloud around the nucleus. Like many of us who have a favorite chair or a preferred cereal bowl, electrons have preferred orbit; a lane, so to speak, where each electron travels in groupings: two; six; 10 and; 14.
The nature of, or simply the fact of the electron orbital, is the critical component in this discourse. Although there are many ways to produce photons, each mechanism revolves around the same concept: an electron, when energized, leaves its natural orbit and occupies a higher than normal orbital sub shell. The electron, seeking normalcy, sheds the extra energy, falling back to its normal, lower orbit. The shed energy is a photon. Figure 3 provides and excellent graphic describing this process.
Furthermore, according to the atom/element, each photon emitted has the characteristic of the specific wavelength of electromagnetic energy; this is to say that the photon has the corresponding color and frequency that matches the distance the electron falls.
The website How Stuff Works provides an easily recognizable example of photon emission in everyday life: fluorescent lamps.
“These forms of lighting pass an electric current through a gas to make the gas emit light. The colors of gas-discharge lamps vary widely depending on the identity of the gas and the construction of the lamp.”
This is to say, the photon produced by the energized electron falling back to its regular orbit coincides with a specific wavelength. The photon’s color is a direct correlation to its energy; this is the photon’s wavelength in the EM spectrum [Figures 1 & 2] and thus, the color of visible light.
What is truly remarkable is this: it turns out that humans also produce light. This intercellular luminescence is termed: biophontics.
While studying chemicals in an attempt to gain a better understanding of causes of cancer, a German theoretical biophysicist by the name of Fritz-Albert Popp, stumbled upon something so groundbreaking that over 300 years later, scientists are still trying to uncover the depth and potential of its meaning.
Fritz-Albert Popp discovered that the human body emits light.
He coined the phrase “biophoton” to describe this phenomenon: Biophotons are weaklight emitted by photons within the cells of our bodies.
The role the biophoton plays is multifaceted. Experimental data confirms that biophotons transmit information. Popp’s research and initial speculations on biophotons is the focus of rigorous scientific studies today; multiple journals and institutes pledge their mission to demonstrate that biophotons are integral to health, and the absence [or healing] of illness. Jule Klotter’s article “Light Cancer and Popp” offers details regarding Popp’s initial research and findings in this field.
The Biophotonics Research Institute provides an excellent article shedding light on this emerging science. In accordance with Popp’s research, Elizabeth Bauer writes:
“The biophoton phenomenon is not confined to “thermal” radiation in the infrared range. It is well known that biophotons are emitted also in the range from visible up to the UV ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum. The intensity of biophotons can be registered from a few photons per second in a square centimeter surface area to several hundred photons per second in a square centimeter from every living system.”
This ties directly into Sifu Cicero’s experience at the Rhine Research Center. Using very sensitive equipment in a controlled environment, including a photo multiplier tube and an EMI Shielded Room, the scientists at the Rhine Research Center counted the numbers of biophotons emitted by Sifu Cicero as well as their wavelength/frequency.
As per the “Bio-emissions Lab Experiment” video and Sifu Cicero’s first person account, the scientists performing the experiment were markedly impressed with Sifu Cicero’s ability to raise, lower, and raise again her energy projections. In fact, Sifu Cicero is now the fifth person in 30 years with over thousands of men and women performing this experiment, to reach the energy levels of the Ultraviolet frequencies.
Looking back to Figure 2, it is clear why the scientists were so very impressed. The Ultraviolet frequency/wavelength is not only very high in energy, but also incredibly hot. Sifu Cicero’s ability to raise her energy, at will, on demand and on command, to such a high level is impressive in and of itself. What raises the bar, is that at the same time, Sifu Cicero was able keep herself physically cool while projecting her energy within the Ultraviolet range; mindboggling indeed. Of course, students of The International Online School of Bio-Energy Training engage in a methodology and curriculum architected in such a way that Sifu Cicero’s results are the norm, not the exception.
Human beings: Beings of Light
In his epic masterpiece “Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back”, visionary George Lucas’ character Master Yoda spoke these words not to a young Luke Skywalker, but to all of us the world over: “Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter.”
Fritz-Albert Popp’s research, presented herein, confirms this startling truth. Yes, we are children born of light.
As you continue your journey, take time to reflect on the concepts highlighted in this discourse, as well as the various articles referenced.
Decide for yourself what this means to you and for you. We are no longer bound to the mundane. We are so much more than we knew – and finding out and more each and every day.
Enjoy the journey; be well; be mindful.

“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.

As odd as it may seem, the temperature of light is not fixed; in fact, it is possible to freeze light. The usefulness of this discovery did not go unnoticed in the scientific and manufacturing communities. As stated in the article “Physicists freeze light, propose optical CPUs”, the ability to lower the temperature of light makes quantum computing that much more feasible as well as practical.
What I find most interesting in this revelation is that it coincides with energy cultivation concepts taught by Sifu Jones for years prior to this technological breakthrough.
The idea of keeping my energy “cool” was an abstract concept that was particularly difficult to grasp. At the time, I had not realized that chi/electromagnetic energies have physical temperatures; nor did I realize the cause and effect relationship between “hot” chi and the physical manifestations of strained muscles, internal discomforts, and disruptive energies exacerbating interpersonal relationships. Furthermore, it was beyond my understanding that the human mind is capable of manipulating the temperature of objects, especially electromagnetic phenomena. With Sifu’s prompting and patient tutelage, I gradually came to know the truth expressed in the recent scientific discoveries via the use of my own mind. Immediately, the abovementioned negative side effects of “hot” chi subsided. The idea of lowering the temperature of the bio-electromagnetic energy I cultivate, however, was but the starting point.
Chi, electricity, and light are electromagnetic phenomena that are hot at default settings. Through trial and error, we have all learned that, on some level, electricity burns. Light, given off from distant stars and fires, carries heat; too much [sun] light can lead to medical ailments, from a simple sunburn to heat strokes and more. When cultivating this energy with and for the body, it behooves the practitioner to cool this energy, as the body will be more receptive to it and the generation thereof.
In the article “Virtual Reality Therapy” , [author ] Dr. Hunter Hoffman, who is the director of the Virtual Reality Analgesia Research Center at the University of Washington Human Interface Technology Laboratory (HITLab) in Seattle, makes some very profound discoveries that show the power of the human mind:
Functional magnetic resonance imaging shows that virtual reality actually reduces the amount of pain-related activity in the brain. The same incoming pain signal can be interpreted as more or less painful depending on what the patient is thinking.
In addition to influencing the way patients interpret such signals, psychological factors can even influence the amount of pain signals allowed to enter the brain’s cortex.
We found a significant positive correlation between the potency of the illusion—how strongly the subjects felt they were immersed in the virtual world—and the alleviation of their pain.
Not only does the scientific data demonstrate Dr. Hoffman’s observation as truth, we instinctively know this from our real world experiences.
“The theory is solid. Think of a toothache. During the day it’s less painful because you have more demands on your attention. However, when night comes and things quiet down, your pain can flair up because you have far less to focus on.”
For many of us engaging in the cultivation of chi energy, the ability to imagine/visualize without the aid of advanced technology falls pathetically short when compared to the sophisticated virtual reality systems in use by Dr. Hoffman and his colleagues. With continued practice, things improve. So much so that, it is completely possible to not only change the temperature of the chi.
As noted in other articles, the human brain is amazingly plastic; it morphs to better perform that which we tell it is important. The same is true here. Thru daily efforts in visualization techniques within this energy cultivation method, the brain repeatedly receives instructions as to what is important and as such, complies. The ability to visualize becomes second nature, and thru this ability, not only can the temperature of energy be changed, but a myriad of attributes and instruction given to the energy: how it feels; how it performs; what it does; how it behaves; etcetera.
The ability to control chi to this level of detail is critical for successful upper level techniques, such as remote healing. So that the practitioner has the ability to reproduce these techniques, on command and on demand with consistent results, this method integrates the concept of cooling the temperature of chi from the very beginning. The building blocks to upper echelon abilities are encoded in every phase of this method and carefully laid out in the curriculum.
Below is a seminar about The Truth about Chakras and Vortexes that reveals the power of a true vortex. Learn how the science versus the metaphysical philosophy of Chakras, can change the way you perform energy healing. Find out how Chi Energy Students reach the higher levels at advanced abilities and healing techniques. Hear how our students learn by their fourth year in training how to form tangible vortexes in areas of the body that are very different than the normal chakra locations.
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?
Bioelectricity, Ki, Qi, and the Human Body is the electric energy associated with living organisms. Electricity, defined by Merriam-Webster, is as follows: a fundamental form of energy observable in positive and negative forms that occurs naturally (as in lightning) or is produced (as in a generator) and that is expressed in terms of the movement and interaction of electrons.
Generally speaking, when thinking of electricity, we think of it as something external to our human bodies: the naturally occurring lightning and human created technology being two said instances. There is, however, a form of electricity that is prevalent in every living creature: bioelectricity.
Bioelectricity is the electric phenomena related to living organisms It is bioelectricity that enables a shark to map the ocean floor. It is bio-electromagnetic phenomena that enable migratory birds to travel great distances at the same time each year with the accuracy we have only been able to reproduce with maps and GPS. It is bioelectricity that enables the electric eel to generate large fields of current outside their bodies.
The difference of electricity vs. bioelectricity is in degree, not in kind. Whereas a lightning bolt can exceed temperatures of 54,000 degrees Fahrenheit (30,000 degrees Celsius), that same current runs through the human body, just on a smaller scale. In fact, the human body runs largely off of [bio] electricity and has organs dedicated to sensing electromagnetic impulses, both inside and outside the human body. The pineal and pituitary glands are both directly tied to the human body’s ability to sense and actively experience electromagnetic phenomenon.
The pineal gland is the evolutionary descendant of our ancestors’ ability to perceive light. It also “regulates the circadian rhythms of the body, biological rhythms that are attuned to the day-night cycle,” (Celtoslavica, “Electricity and Human Consciousness); these “rhythms” can be and have been disrupted by electromagnetic fields, both naturally occurring as well as man-made. The pituitary gland “controls and influences all other hormonal organs which report back to the pituitary gland” (Celtoslavica, “Electricity and Human Consciousness); in fact, the pituitary gland is largely responsible for the overall functioning and efficiency of the human nervous system.
The nervous system in human beings is based entirely off of the ability to transmit electric pulses. Every cell within the human body pumps ions (e.g. that which makes up the quantum field), in and out of the cell for energy purposes; this is called the Sodium-Potassium pump, and can be found in all animal life. Said energy, in the biological animal, is called “adenosine triphosphate” (ATP); biologists and biochemist alike have noted that ATP can be neutral, or carry a charge (plus or minus), and is, infact, a charged particle which the cells use for energy. ATP is the final product of the digestive cycle and further exemplifies the human being’s connection (and ability) to experience and manipulate the electromagnetic fields that permeate the Universe.
“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 qi energy that somehow commands the bone to heal itself.”
As postulated by the scientists interviewed in the article, it makes sense that human beings have the innate ability to sense electromagnetic phenomena: “We live on a sun-lit planet, and most living things have acquired some means to use the light. We live in a world filled with sounds, and most living things have developed a means to sense vibrations. Since our planet is also a giant magnet, it should not surprise us to discover that we and many other living things have a sensitivity to Earth’s magnetic-force field.”
As we look from large-scale physics, e.g., the lightning bolt and the sodium-potassium pump, to smaller scale electromagnetic phenomenon, we find ourselves in the realm of quantum mechanics. Light is an electromagnetic phenomenon. Light is both a wave and a particle. In terms of quantum mechanics, electricity and light are the same. The oscillations of the impulses create the divergent effects. Microwaves, radio waves, even the non-lethal weapons of the US Army (such as the Active Denial System) are based out of electromagnetic fields.
Qi, too, is an electromagnetic phenomenon. Qi is energy; light energy; bio-electromagnetic energy; electricity. The degree of strength in an electromagnetic impulse is the difference between the heart pumping vs. a heart attack. When building qi, it is important to understand, important to know, that the electricity you are both introducing to your body as well as augmenting within your body, can be controlled/manipulated by your mind.
The design of the human body features many organs attuned to electromagnetic phenomena: the eyes register individual photon packets; the tympanic membrane vibrates the mechanical wave of sound; the brain creates an electromagnetic field that is both separate and different from that which the heart generates. All this is to say that not only do human beings interact with electricity, we are fully capable of cultivating and controlling the bioelectricity we generate via our own bodies. Understanding that qi is our natural form of electricity, and that this energy comprises the very building blocks of spacetime, it is easy for us to see with the eyes of the enlightened – the interconnectedness we have with the Universe, and our abilities to move past the mundane.

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.”
