Hey there, I started frequent Microcosmic Orbit practice about a month ago and have been experiencing energy sensations that haven’t really been expanded upon in anything I’ve read and I’m wondering if these are normal:
– When focusing on the channel between my navel and sexual palace I can feel energy moving to all parts of my lower tantien – hips, buttocks, groin, testicles, kidneys, up and down legs. I can also feel energy coming up through my feet and kidney point on my ankle. It seems to be moving in many different directions, but feels like it’s clearing blockages that have been there for years. My question is should I try and consciously move this in specific directions or just let the chi do it’s thing like I have been?
– Also even though I have major blockages between my navel and sexual palace, I can feel energy moving freely throughout channels that are further along in the orbit. Is this normal and if not what, if anything, should I do about it?
Thanks to anyone who takes the time to answer!

The thing that a part of the mco is blocket and you not feel anything there is normal. It is also normal that you can feel the energy at the points that following after the blocked area. I think you not feel anything in the blocked are just beacase it is blocked, but the thing is that the energy does pass there anyway, at least to some extent, even though you not notice it. See it as a blind spot where your atention at the moment can´t reach. Just continue your practise and after some time the blind or blocked are will gradually open up and then you will start to feel energy even at thoose spots.
But pay attention to if the practise afects you in any negative way. That could be a sign that you should be a bit careful and perhaps search for some advise from more experienced persons in this system. But I also have to say that when areas that are blocked are coming alive again, that process in it self might be emotionaly painful to some extent. Learn to feel the difference betwean what is pain that will be good for you and what is pain that is a signal for you to take it easy with your practise.
About the other question, which I am not as sertain to what to answer you. I want to say to you as long as it feels right, I should let the energy do what it want´s to. The energy is much more wiser than anybodys intelect! But exactly your pattern of energetic feelings, which you describes, are unfamiliar to me and perhaps somebody else will know more sertain what is good for you in that situtaion.
I feel from reading your post though that you yourself feel that you should let the energy do what it want´s to and that that is right for you. That feeling is probablyl right.

Thanks so much for the advice! I had a feeling that I was moving in the right direction, I just wanted to make sure by getting a second opinion. I have been feeling progressively better since I started so I’m going to keep on just letting the energy move as it has been. You’re exactly right about it being smarter than anyone’s intellect.

I see SD already provided you with a comprehensive answer.
In any event, guiding energy along certain pathways
is often the intention of various meditations. There
is nothing wrong with doing this. Such intention can
help to achieve certain goals. In fact, the microcosmic
orbit itself is such a guided energy meditation.
Yet, if the energy has a different idea than what you
originally had in mind, it is usually best not to interfere.
It is usually smarter than any fancy ideas one might have.
As long as it feels good, let it be.
Don’t be too attached to the method.
It’s the transformation that we care about.
The method is just a tool to help transformation be possible.
