Spinning the wheel - the cycle of energy
CHI or PRANA is a kind of energy which comes from several sources.
The chinese medicin knows severals sorts of CHI(Sheng Chi and evil Sha-Chi).
The are up to 43 Qi-Sorts discerned. The four most important are Yuan-Qi(original Qi),
Zong-Qi(Breath-Qi), Ying-Qi(Food-Qi) und Wie-Qi(Defense-Qi).
Other names for the Yuan-Qi are Inborn-Qi and Acquired-Qi for the Breath- and the Food-Qi.
In chinese breath-therapy (see : Prof. St. Palos : Breath and meditation - chinese breath-therapy und scientific measurements) the rythm of breath is used together with healing mantrams (special words with a special effect and meaning).
On our planet Chi comes mainly from the sun. Several chemical substances can store this energy or store parts of this energy. Especially the plants are in contact with the rays of the sun and store this energy just as the air does.
Chi circles in man in the so called etheric body (not to be confused with the astral or spiritual soul)
which is known as the system of acupunture. Even animals have such a body.
In Raja-Yoga step 4 (7 and 8 of the UNIVERSAL PATH) is Pranayama, dh. control of the Prana or Chi. Franz Bardon, master of white magic, spoke of accumulation and concentration of the Prana.
In the more progressed disciple CHI circles in a broad stream (small cycle, big cycle).
The chinese Qi-Gong-Praktices concentrate on this cycle (Mantak Chia : Tao-Yoga of the healing Chi).
On step 10 the disciple has established the small cycle.
But this Chi is not yet spiritual. Depending upon the specific path Chi can then
be so much concentrated that the disciple can heal und gain some occult abilities.
The result of dark Chi can be illness ! Through certain forms Chi can be transformed into constructive or into destructive forms. This is one point of true Feng Shi.
Common man unconsciously transforms this Chi or "Sun-Prana" into dark Chi,
and therefore he is a "sinner" (until step 10) .
The seeker should therefore strive for a pure life and avoid such things ,
and he must learn how to protect against and clean from such negative influences
and how to transform the Chi.
Another name for this world is "Mirror-World", because the astrale and material events are reflect here. This plane contains the "Akasha-Chronics" and a part of the memory and it stands in connnection to the material karma.
