Now that you have mastered the Microcosmic Orbit method, you probably feel refreshed after qigong training and have learned to release qi from your hands. In China, qi researchers have documented that infrared rays and magnetic energy are released from the hands. An increase of infrared rays was also seen in my research. This supports the theory that the essence of qi is infrared rays, or magnetic energy. Qigong practitioners actually treat patients in hospitals in China.
Once one can release qi from the hands, it becomes possible to heal patients. I practice qi healing with various patients who come for treatment to my department. Some patients enjoy great benefits from this method. It is common for patients who complain of pain in their muscles or bones to be healed after just one or two sessions; I sometimes find acupuncture treatments to be very successful as well. I find that the results are usually better when I include some form of gentle manipulation of qi in my treatment.
In the early years, though, one problem soon arose: even though qi healing was interesting and I was happy to be able to practice it, I noticed that I was becoming exhausted. What was worse, I began to show the same symptoms as my patients. I was able to get rid of my exhaustion by performing the Microcosmic Orbit method; but as soon as I had treated a patient, for instance, who complained of chronic stiffness in the shoulders, my own shoulders started aching. After I had seen someone who had a stomachache, my own stomach began to hurt. This was happening too often to interpret as mere synchronicity. For a while I had no idea what to do. From my many years of training in the martial arts, I could understand that I needed to accept difficulties of this sort as a natural part of the road to progress, because I knew that my symptoms were caused by something that had to do with the method that I was using to handle external qi. In fact, I almost wanted to give up qi healing altogether, because of these symptoms and my exhaustion. But there were patients waiting for me, whom I was actually able to help with qi healing. There seemed to be no way to return to the point where I knew nothing about qi. During this period, I read all sorts of documents in an effort to find some way beyond my own limitations. After a long process of trial and error, I finally realized how important the mind and consciousness were to qi healing.
