I owe a much longer report on my activities with magnets and qigong, but I wanted to drop a quick note. I have been playing with magnets now for a few weeks. In the CD that comes with the Magnetic Qigong set that Peter Ragnar sells, he mentioned a book by Albert Roy Davis and Walter Rawls. I did a search on them which led me to http://www.magnetlabs.com. When it comes to magnets, these people really know their stuff. They started their research in 1936, with the discovery that the north and south poles of magnets put out different energy from each other; the North is negative, the South is positive. They also discovered that magnetic energy does not travel in the apple shape that we were all taught in school – the shape formed by sprinkling iron filings around a magnet. The energy travels in vortices. North pole out the top and down into the center of the magnet, south pole out the bottom and up into the center of the magnet. Each poles energy switches polarity in the center through a neutral zone. If this ain’t a perfect example of yin/yang/yuan chi, I’m a monkey’s uncle – or mind…
First thing I found out – don’t buy inexpensive magnets. They’re not polarized properly. The magnets need to be clearly north and south. Many are not. I’m pretty sure that the magnets that Peter sells are the right type – the ones he’s recommending with the Magnetic Qigong set. There are others he sells that the Magnet Labs folks do not recommend. Right now I’m taking their word as gospel.
So far, the magnets act as beautiful amplifiers of chi during practice. I will have a lot more to say about this, but initial results are extremely promising. The one thing that you have to absolutely careful of – know which side is north and which is south. And don’t ever use the South side unless you know exactly what you’re doing. It is very yang, and will amplify bacteria, inflammation, tumors, etc.

Ooops. The direction of the North pole is out the center and up to the top. Picture is worth a thousand words.September 27, 2007 at 5:43 pm #24572
I read that its was easier to develope in your practice closer to the north pole, now I have an Idea why.September 27, 2007 at 6:59 pm #24574
Yep, the north pole feels very quiet and nurturing. Definitely supports yin, without taking down yang. According to the Magnet Labs folks, it can be used for hours to good effect. I’ve stood on north pole facing magnets, and sat on them also, for a couple of hours. Definitely enjoyable. My wife and daughter have also used the north pole with similar comments. North pole energy is also great for healing wounds. My daughter strained her foot pretty badly. I placed a strong north pole magnet next to the area of pain and had her hold it there for about an hour. She said that it hurt more at first, but then the pain subsided until the next day. When the pain came back, it was not as strong as the day before.September 28, 2007 at 1:55 pm #24576
I had a friend and teacher recommend putting a northpole magnet under my drinking water tank. I have not tryed it yet.September 28, 2007 at 3:16 pm #24578
That can work great Dog. The size of the magnet you need is dependent on the size of your tank. If it’s a big tank, it can be more effective to put a magnet under your drinking glass/bottle, etc. Make sure it’s 100% North.

The distinction between magnetic north and true north only applies to the Earth, not for a magnet. For magnets, 100% North means a magnet that has been properly magnetized, which I guess is not very common. Many magnets have some of both, though mostly one or the other. When we were talking about this last (I can’t find that thread), we were remarking at how expensive Peter’s magnets were compared to others. If he’s selling Magnet Labs magnets, the extra cost comes from the higher quality.
If you’re going to experiment with polarized water, or biomagnetism (of which Magnetic qigong would be a part), I suggest getting one of these magnets:
They are the highest quality you can get. I have also bought some magnets from:
I ordered 2 6″x4″x1″ ceramic blocks and 2 1″x1/2″ N50 neodymium cylinder magnets. The ceramic blocks appear to be about 75% north on the face that is described as north. The neodymiums, from what I can tell, are solidly north. However, I think the neo’s are too strong for water usage. The Magnet Labs folks mention something about magnetic frequency. I think that the neo’s are too strong and too high frequency for water applications. They feel almost overwhelmingly strong and ‘crackly’ with energy. To give you an idea of how strong they are, when they snap together, and they snap together very easily, they cannot be pried apart by fingers. They did work well in a couple of tests on muscular injuries though.
From initial experiments and reading I’ve done, magnets need to be strong enough, but not too strong, and of the ‘right’ frequency. The number of variables is why I just recommended going with the Magnet Labs magnets.
If you’re up for experimentation, the following magnets look like they might be good for magnetizing water glasses:
and they’re inexpensive (US supplier).April 26, 2008 at 12:17 pm #24582
I just ordered a set of 5lbs Magnetic Thunderballs and am so excited to try them out. Do you follow the routine on the DVD or create your own?
Also how has it been coming along for you?
