As I was finishing tai chi this morning, my very kind and wonderful host came up to me, and asked what I was doing. “What does it look like I’m doing?” I replied.
“It looks like you’re just standing there?”
I raised my hands toward her. “Oh,” she said, “you’re doing tai chi.”
It’s nice to have the sense that I am successfully raising energy and able to manipulate it and send it around. My host is fairly sensitive to the manipulation of prana or chi or whatever you want to call it, and she was able to sense me sending energy at her at the end of my tai chi routine. It wasn’t even a gradual awareness, once I redirected energy in her direction — she knew immediately, and her eyes got wide at it.
So it’s really working. I guess what has to happen now is that I have to be able to sense the flow of energy outside myself.
