More than a year ago I was meditating for a long time (about 15 days) and I was able to feel some warm current at the end of my spine and feeling like moving up (Chi!?). The meditation technique I used was blocking thoughts and see what happens. And all sorts of thinhgs happend. But I think breading patterns were the most influencial in making the Chi appear.
Since that episode I have been praticing the same meditation tecnique but I have been unable to make the feeling of energy moving up my spine to come again.
Does any one has any idea why I might have been able to do it in the past and never since then? It feels I was able to do it just by luck or maybe my live is more stressfull now an that interferes with meditation and health.
If there is any additional info that you need about my story so you can help me, please let me know. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your help,

I think you should see the effect that you describe as just a passing phenomenon that is not really important as a sign of proper meditation or “getting it right”. Don’t worry about it at all. Sometimes the most rewarding meditations you can have are the ones that are REALLY boring. What you felt was not the chi itself, but the friction of chi passing through the spine. Maybe now your spine is less congested, and the chi is flowing freely where it is needed. And then you feel very little.
In my experience just focus in initiating the meditation in the proper way that you are taught, and then let go and just observe whatever happens is best. But then again, I don’t know what you mean by blocking thoughts.
Basically, meditating every day and just trust the process will in the end bring you the result, which is strangely enough nothing special.
