I guess it has been about a month now since the young man started his Genesis qigong training with me at the Noble School of Taichi and Qigong Training. I recall during his first class that when he and I were doing a paired exercise, (where I was energizing his Kidneys/life gate and sending the qi down to his feet to help him get more grounded) that he mentioned that he was feeling as though his feet were magnetized to the earth and it felt as though it would be challenging for him to move his feet if he wanted too.
Later, in that first class we began to do some exercises to activate energy feelings between his hands and he said that he was clearly feeling sensations on his hands and mostly in the form of hot heat. Then, later in the class (during different exercises) the feelings in his hands began to change from hot to magnetic feelings. His parents were in that class with him and I recall his father mention, something to the point- that his son had previously worked with many different highly reputable and successful energy healers over the years and they told him his son is not energy sensitive and therefore was unable to feel the energy. The families experince in their first Genesis Qigong class contrary to what they heard before-hand was evidence to them that there son was and is very energy sensitive.
Based on my experience as a Qigong instructor and Healer I have found that some people are clearly more sensitive to energy than others, but eveyone I have worked with who could not feel it initially were able to feel the energy very clearly when the energy levels reach the right stage, and upgrading the Kidney energy levels (activation of low kidney energy levels to a higher point where electrical energy can be felt through the body) in most cases based on my experience is the key to help students actually feel the “Chi/ Qi/ Ki/ Prana”.
To go back a step, so when I was working with the Young man to activate his Kidney/ life gate center and then sending the energy down to his feet… he was able to feel magnetized to the earth with his feet because we charged his kidneys and then as his kidneys were getting more charged we sent energy down to his feet to activate his feet and get him grounded, and then after his feet reached the level/ stage where the energy was able to open up his “Root Centers” Kidney #1 points on his feet then he was able to feel the magnetic and clear connection between his feet and the earth.
I think it was in his Third class (a few weeks after his first class) I noticed the young man looked much more solid and mature than he did when I first met him only a few weeks earlier. Over the years I have seen 100’s of students transform their health, strength, confidence…. and quality of life all the time, but regarless of how often I see it happen it never stops amazing me, warming my heart and delighting me to see students dramatically improve their internal confidence, happiness and life.
