This is a good way to feel the chi in your body (hypnotism or reality? does it matter if it works?) Stand in the typical three circle/tree hugging qigong pose, that is with your feet parallel at shoulder width, knees above toes, back straight, hips rolled under, chin in, tongue on hard palate, arms rounded, tile fingers in front of your chest, space in your armpits, eyes forward, head erect, shoulders down. Meditate in that position for a while – five minutes is enough for a beginner. Then bring your hands slowly to just below navel height (dantien). With your hands open, concentrate and pretend you’re rolling a small ball between your hands – after a while you should feel the ball, or a warm, tingling sensation. That is chi! Once you have that, slowly hold your left hand flat and point to the left palm. Draw small circles on your palm with the finger and you should feel the pressure of the finger even though it’s about a foot away from the palm.
