Life force energy, also known as chi or prana, is found in everything. This subtle and pervasive energy is said to be the vital building block of all matter and creation, both physical and non-physical. This energy flows in, through, and around the body, forming vibrant and cohesive living systems in endless forms. Many traditions believe that a steady supply of chi is necessary to sustain all living beings. By understanding the rhythm, flow, and the qualities of life force energy, a wide variety of exercises and healing practices have been developed over time to improve health, vitality, and longevity. These practices are worldwide and span across all cultures including Reiki, Qi Gong, Pranic Healing, and many more.
In rare cases, chi has been shown to produce some truly astounding effects. In the following video, a Chinese healer demonstrates some of the powerful applications of chi when harnessed and directed with mastery. These feats are clearly visible and are shocking to witness at first. This type of ability came from much training and diligent meditation, including his membership in a secret order of healers.
When healing patients, the chi is so strong that it sometimes causes uncontrollable shocks and spasms in the body of the receiver, requiring someone to hold the patient down. He is even able to start a fire using nothing but his hands and chi! He also uses the chi to stop rifle pellets, light LEDs, and even push a chopstick through a strong wooden table. This is truly amazing and is something that must be witnessed for yourself
A team of scientists was called out and attempted to measure and understand this chi energy but were unable to do so successfully. Even though the chi was easily felt by those assisting, it would not register on the measuring equipment. This shows that there is a lot more that science has yet to understand, especially in the realm of subtle energies.
The healer claims to use both yin and yang chi, and that the mixture of these results in the various effects. The navel chakra is said to be the positive terminal, while the perineum is said to be the negative terminal. When chi can be drawn up into one’s own “inner cauldron”, an internal alchemy can occur by blending sexual, vital, and spiritual essences. These are powerful internal practices that can be developed over time with practice and proper training.
These types of visible demonstrations serve as a reminder that this energy is extremely powerful and lies within each of us as a potential to harness and direct. While advanced applications require many years of disciplined training, each of us possesses far more power internally than we are fully aware of. We can learn to use this chi to improve our lives by healing ourselves and others.
The aim of this video is not to sensationalize these types of applications, but to reveal how powerful life force energy can be. It is something that we all possess and are made of. It is flowing through us right now. It is a gift from life and a force that is waiting to be fully discovered and understood by humanity.
You can start to feel this chi right now by rubbing your hands vigorously together for 30 seconds and then feeling the space between them. Do you notice anything there?
May we all use the power of chi for the highest good of all!
