How to actually feel the dantian and direct chi to it?
« on: March 07, 2017, 04:44:19 PM »
Dear All,

Some masters keep talking about feeling the dantian and directing our chi to it.
But how in the world can we do that if we don't feel anything with the dantian and have no idea how to direct the chi (assuming we can also feel it) to it?

Does anyone know how to:
1) Feel the dantian?
2) Direct chi to it?

    do chi kung training or meditation.  It takes time to accumulate energy to that area. It's all about intent focus concentration to build your sensitivity.

    imagining that all energy go to that area during inhale, 2 inch below belly button and 2 inch in helps develop your senses.

    If everything in life is measurable, then understanding destiny would be as simple as counting 1, 2, and 3.

    Wow, thanks for all the replies so far.

    Fyi, I am currently getting myself educated and do some light qigong for health, and inner healing.
    Because I found my energy level is getting lower and lower for years already, and for spiritual purpose.

    What is the purpose of directing Qi to dantian ?  :)
    To transform Qi to Energy, right ?

    purpose is to make your immune stronger to fight illness by storage of chi.  It's like a bank account analogy of money. are you in debt or surplus of energy?  What does lack of money do to you? what about surplus?  same with energy. lack of energy cause stress. more energy means better health and able to do things with ease.

    main purpose is to balance energy and storing for application of your choice. For healing others or for martial arts or for one's health. developing spirit? mind intention cultivation?  bottomline. its more for health than for anything else. these days we don't use it for fighting no more.

    How can we actually direct our chi (breath) to our dantien?
    Like do we breath in with our stomach and then push our diaphragm far down as we can?

    they body convert air into energy with intention of dantian location. it does that when you have surplus of chi.  it's like a bank account. if you lack it , how can you use it to heal  body? that's where herbs come in and acupuncture treatment. those herbs /needles redirect chi to where it's needed. herbs help build more chi.  food is qi too so healthy food is best.

     So i had been practicing tai ji for a while before i understood. The purpose of filling the dan tien is to convert chi to jing which in turn benefits the health and later you can use this jing for all sorts of stuff like condensing it into the bones and marrow. You will also learn to project it when doing push hands or sparring.

    So feeling the dan tien and chi is about sensitivity. If you dont have sensitivity or your chi is really weak it can take a bit of time but just persist and dont try to force it. Focusing too much on "attaining" it will make it elude you even more. So the key to sensitivity is being EMPTY. Emptiness is represented by the earth trigram- complete openness and receptivity, also RELAXED. meaning your mind is clear it is only focused on the movements or the dan, nothing else. It isnt wondering about what your going to do after practice or what you did before practice. You have to be 100 percent in the moment. Feeling every little sensation in your body. Feel what your lower stomach feels like when you take a deep abdominal breath.

    The recomendation to do zhan zhuang standing is great. That should be the first thing you do and what helps cultivate your sensitivity. Hold one of the 13 postures and just relax as much as you can without losing the postural integrity. Eventually youll get to the point where it feels like your not using muscles at all and you are being held up effortlessly. That is the kind of state you need to maintain throughout the forms, push hands, even sparring.

    So tai ji is definately hard, but not in the way "external" martial arts are. It is hard to maintain the razors edge between too tense and completely slumped over. But that is the point you need to maintain to feel the dan tien, chi, and everything else once you progress.. hope it helps a little.
