hmm  
i'm a little bit worried.

while i'm ecstatic about my two (or three)-month visit back to melbourne, i'm also apprehensive about losing all the ground i gained in the past few months of 'baking' myself in our hothouse spa (i call it our 'oven', a far-infrared ray machine) and getting my health up to my current state. my 'chi' has been flowing and i can feel that i'm different now. much stronger.

i've reached my current state of health today by popping myself into the oven once a day (my parents pop themselves in twice a day each), in conjunction with the enzymes and one other herbal tonic my mother has put me on. this is most effective as a daily routine, so our 'chi' keeps flowing everyday. i've been pretty diligent at baking myself, so i'm not keen to lose my momentum. the thought of starting all over again when i come back from my little trip isn't such a nice one. two months is really quite a long time.

it's bugging me so much that i'm even considering cutting my visit short. sigh. unthinkable isn't it? for those who know me in person, this has to be the most absurd thing you'll find me thinking of. for those who don't know me, all you need to know is - i love melbourne and i miss it so much that i dream about being back there regularly (maybe 2-3 times a week). for me to consider cutting short any trip back there is seriously the most absurd thing ever.

:s

i guess i'll see how it goes.

Can't you at least kinda keep it up while you're out there?

don't worry too much. gld that you are getting well with positive chi flowing. health is utmost important. with good health, you can go back to your love place all times. :D

yeh, i'll see how long i take to get all my things done over there and i may come back earlier if i feel myself getting weaker. i'm also bringing my runners over to run in the mornings so that may help a little. :)

If the purpose is to keep chi flowing, then perhaps you could take up an activity over here which will have a similar effect. Maybe not the same effect, but at least something to keep the momentum from fading. Qigong?
JV: owldrag0nette on January 7th, 2007 08:34 am (UTC)
me is still very novice at getting 'chi' to flow. i basically rely on the 'chi' machine (which shakes your legs) that works together with the far-infrared machine. i doubt i can do qigong! :p
Marktarsarlan on January 7th, 2007 10:24 am (UTC)
You could learn quite easily. When I started practicing qigong I found a few places nearby that sounded decent, so I'm sure there'll be one to be found close to wherever you stay.
JVdrag0nette on January 7th, 2007 10:42 am (UTC)
i'm a bit like my dad... my parents enrolled in this famous qigong master's classes. mother got her 'chi' flowing in the 6th class. dad never felt a single thing.

they complete the course, and he still hadn't felt a thing.

at home, he tried for hours and hours on end, to no avail. he was super frustrated.

it wasn't till we got the hothouse spa and the 'chi' machine that he's finally got it going! :)
Marktarsarlan on January 7th, 2007 10:52 am (UTC)
I didn't feel much other than heat either. Except for one time when I felt something between my hands which changed as I moved my hands and couldn't be explained through transmission of heat or movement of air. Didn't happen again though, and didn't feel anything moving through my body.
JV: leaf116drag0nette on January 7th, 2007 12:29 pm (UTC)
ah... the 'chi' that we feel now is a very powerful surge through the body. that's how it's supposed to feel like. my mother can do that on her own through meditation, but the rest of us just can't. :)
