Interesting sessions today, did my neigong for a total of 90 minutes (1hr, and two 15min sessions), all of which had me buzzing at a pretty good vibrational rate. During one of the 15min sessions, I thought my head was gonna explode. I thought I was gonna get a stroke or aneurism. But I kept pushing through it testing my limits. I should be careful with that, though. I probably could end up like the one guy my professor said who did Microcosmic Orbit excessively and ended up going through a neurologic shock that rendered him unable to teach mathematics or do any simple math equations. I did try to push the energy back into my dantian, but the shit wanted to ascend, so I let it. I should’ve at least taken my herbal meds afterwards though, cuz I felt it all stagnate up in my head for a few minutes afterwards. The other 15min session was good, kept it in my dantian for the most part.
But one interesting thing to note, in his book “Sit Down and Shut Up” by Brad Warner (I quote his books all the time, so bear with me), he said that the universe loves you. And I believe him to be right, which is why we have such a thing as Karma, the law of cause and effect that keeps us in check for being a dirtbag or rewards us for being good. The universe wants us to survive and live good lives, otherwise it wouldn’t have given us ways to protect ourselves from disease like skin and immune systems, or legs and hormones to help us run away from danger.
With that thought in mind, I realized that the Wuji, the void, the emptiness that the universe was born from, loves us. Therefore, the source Qi is love and compassion.
I realized all this after my initial 1hr neigong meditation. So for the next two sessions, I cultivated Qi by uniting it with love and compassion, and the results were amazing. I was calm, yet full of energy and vitality, and the pain that was menacing my lower back had subsided.
After that, I also remembered that Tibetan monks meditate upon love and compassion, and scientists measuring their brainwaves noticed that neural frequencies were higher than normal, all the way up to Gamma waves, which is really, ridiculously high. I may have touched upon that.
And another test I did on myself was to perform medical qigong on one of my patients suffering from a torn ligament in her knee. So I projected on her knee the same Qi mixed with love and compassion that I cultivated, and she walked away with no pain.
Note: she had no idea that I was doing any sort of energy work. She didn’t know I did any energy work, she probably doesn’t even know what energy work is. I merely told her to relax and focus on her breathing, so not to minimize the placebo effect.
On another note, I’ve been curious about another aspect of Taoism which included magic and sorcery. I remember a few months ago a lady called me asking if I could remove a hex that she had. I remember actually feeling negative energy through her phone call even before she told me she had a hex on her. So I asked one of my friends if exorcisms is done with medical qigong, and he said no, and not to get into any of that. I asked if having a protective shield around myself is enough to keep others from putting hexes on me, he said yes, but Luke 9:1 is the best:
Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
In terms of Taoist healing, I interpret that as you’re calling upon the source Qi of love and compassion to protect yourself from evil. The same way that radio waves are no match for gamma waves, the low level frequencies of evil and hate are no match for how strong love and compassion are.
I’m sorry this is poorly written and seemingly contrived, but I’m being honest here. Plus it’s late.
