Section III: Box 3-9

Working with R

From the book (Section III, Chapter 10)

The best way to start is by adopting a relaxed, sitting, or kneeling position like that shown in Photo 3-8. When ready to begin the practice, release all unnecessary tension. When you feel relaxed, place your facing open palms near to each other, similar to the hand orientation of the person shown in Photo 3-8.  If you have previously attended a class in meditation, yoga, or t’ai-chi there is a good chance that you are already familiar with this exercise.

With practice, you will be able to observe signal not only between your open palms, but elsewhere in, or around the body – ultimately, wherever attention is directed. Every form of attention directed internal/subtle energy training includes three steps. The first step involves the practitioner learning to perceive a sensation in the body associated with the goal. For example, if the goal of a particular exercise is to relieve back tension, the practitioner uses the “signal” to increase warmth to that area.

In contrast, if the practitioner’s goal is to develop non-contact healing skills such as those methods described in Section IV, in that case, the practitioner works toward developing the ability to create a warm and tingling sensation in the lower abdomen and then project the healing force to the patient. As another example, if the practitioner’s goal is to develop a light touch/minimal effort form of “internal power” for self-defense, the practitioner focuses on channeling what feels like an electric current through the body. After considerable practice, the skilled practitioner is able to direct this representation of internal energy against an opponent.
