Ok so I have been busy as crap doing nothing in particular. I’m still not working but I am in the process of starting a bicycle advertising thing (I’ll be selling adspace on my bike). I’m still doing Kung-Fu and Qigong to the point of making myself sick because I am not resting well. Classes are going well. After failing one of two of my classes last semester chunk, I am passing my personality psych class (right now I have an A). I also joined an online Zendo. So I am planning to kick my sitting into high gear. I haven’t been online much because I’m trying to get myself healthy and late night IRC sessions are not really that conducive to sleep, but I’ll try to be around more often.
Oh and now I am a beggar. If you would like to give me money you can click the flattr button in the sharing area.
I’ve been doing Kung-Fu now for about 8 months, and its getting really cool. Recently I started doing Qigong (Tai Chi) so that I could train internally as well as externally. Now mind you I am just starting to scratch the surface of all of this, but something really cool happened today. I’m going to try and describe this but I will have to do a bit of explanation, please bear with me.
I was doing Jamjong (I think that’s round about how it is said/spelled, my Cantonese/Fookaneese is not great) which is a technique for centering. I was in the “human” position, which is where your feet are shoulder width apart and your hands are at the lower reference point (near the naval), and facing each other. My right hand formed a nickel sized cold spot, like liquid nitrogen cold, and the same place on my left hand was hot in the same place. like if you left a coin in the summer sun and then pressed it into your hand. That’s weird enough but I also felt like something was passing back and fourth between the two points.
Now mind you I am pretty skeptical about mystical/paranormal things. I’m not willing to discredit things with out serious proof, but I’m not a true believer either. However this was just fracking cool. Was it Qi moving around my body? I dunno, and really don’t care. All I am sure of is it was super cool feeling and if it happens again I am just going to enjoy it for what it is… odd.
