Something I couldn’t understand… The practice requires that one should ‘put the qi back in the dantian’. Yet, practice has some intensity… if you concentrate, say, on the back of the knee, does the qi stay there, when you ‘detach’ your attention from the spot, and think about your everyday life?
Isn’t it re-absorbed by the mind-body system?
My intuition is that if you do nothing, the qi goes back to wrapping the body, regularly distributed. Of course, if you think much, some of it goes to the head.
My doubt is that, why closing the qi in the dantian, leaving the rest of the body without?
thanks for the attention 🙂
The lifeforce will tend to go where it is needed for balance. This will be mitigated or moderated by your own beliefs and directions.
Bringing the chi down into the ldt concentrates it in the place from which it feeds your whole body. The ldt is the resting place, a reservoir, for the lifeforce. This does not close it off from the rest of the body but gives the body access to it properly and keeps it from being scattered. Do it for awhile, you’ll see.
totaly agree with what A said.
also, you can massage the dantien with your fingers. do circles or waves, – what ever. massage is a way of physically loosening the area up, breaking up stagnation and brining awareness to the are with your fingers/hands.
then meditating/breathing/focusing there might be a bit easier. ie, the ‘container’ will have become more capable of storing and subsequently distributing qi
