Has anyone tried out the Miracle Mastery Text written by David Debold?
Below are links to his first 3 chapters – offered free:
I’m not looking for a lecture on chasing powers…I’m experiencing powers like mentioned herein and am looking for a text to expound on them.
Has anyone read this book? Or can they suggest similar?October 15, 2013 at 9:07 pm #41326October 15, 2013 at 9:10 pm #41328
Can anyone direct me to a Taoist text on developing Siddhis or “special gifts”?
Not chasing powers, but experiencing some – and want to find a taoist textual resource.
I’ve had teachers in the past, and my days are done there – so, just looking for a text.
Any suggestions?October 16, 2013 at 9:44 am #41330
I believe the 8 Siddhis are similar to the 8 Extraordinary Vessels or Channels, which are opened up in Fusion of the 5 Elements 2/3. Mantak Chia now has books for Fusion 2 and 3, called “Cosmic Fusion: The Inner Alchemy of the 8 Forces” and “Fusion of the 8 Psychic Channels: Opening and Sealing the Energy Body.” I have not read either of them nor practiced Fusion 2 or 3.
Michael Winn has a homestudy course for Fusion 2/3, although it has prerequisites of Qigong Fundamenatals 1/2, and Fusion 1.
I’m sure there may be others on here who can give you more/better direction.October 16, 2013 at 10:21 pm #41332
I have been doing fusion 1 for about 11 months now, and am incorporating fusion 2 over the last few months.
I too feel the connection of siddhis with the extraordinary vessels – as most of them depend on sufficent reservoirs of vital energy to deliver the siddhis.
Though the texts mentioned to not work directly with the siddhis – rather bring about the wholeness through which they are found.
So, i’m very much enveloped in the fusion process – and will continue to be (every day) – so, i’m not looking to jump off that ship.
Rather, I’m looking for text that works more directly with the siddhis themselves – which fusion does not (directly, as such). 🙂October 19, 2013 at 10:22 am #41334

Roland the Farter (known in contemporary records as Roland le Fartere) was a medieval flatulist who lived in 12th century England. He held Hemingstone manor in Suffolk and 30 acres (120,000 m2) of land in return for his services as a jester for King Henry II. Each year he was obliged to perform “Unum saltum et siffletum et unum bumbulum” (one jump, one whistle, and one fart) for the King’s court at Christmas.
Is somebody seriously writing books about such things?
These ancient books don’t have any details and modern performers probably should only perform (magical) tricks.
Who believes that such things are nothing else than fantasy?
