9 Colours Qi Ball – Part 3
The strongest acupuncture points are the Láo Gōng 勞宮 points on the palms. When you hold your hands so that the palms face each other you can easily feel your Qì 氣, especially if you have been practicing Qìgōng 氣功 for a while. This is the first Qi ball that we should be able to feel. Some of us will even be able to see the Qi. This will usually look like smoke, steam, and if we are very relaxed, we might even see colours. Children are more likely to see, as well as ladies, but men see less, perhaps men find it harder to relax enough. Generally, the more relaxed we are the more we are able to see, notice and feel. Therefore, practising Qìgōng makes us more sensitive to our environment around us and even beyond, and not limited by time and space. Once we have developed the first Qì ball, then we can develop the second Qì ball.
Every time we walk with the Qì balls, our Qì will get stronger. It is like rolling a snowball, as you keep rolling it, it gets bigger and bigger as it gathers more snow. So now we can separate our hands so that we have two Qì balls one in the right hand and one in the left hand and now we should be able to feel the two Qì balls in each hand.
