A chronic shift of your weight to your left can enable you to perform an Opening with the left arm very easily, because your energy field is already morphed sideways. If you shift your weight to the right, you will find it quite easy to make an Opening with the right arm.
You will probably find it still possible to make other directional movements while Holding Out, but not as effortlessly as an Opening on the weight bearing side. Making a Closing may turn out to be exceedingly difficult though, especially with the arm on the weight-bearing side. Qi Dao does not recommend fighting against the energy flow, but rather allowing yourself to learn as much as you can about being on the edge of your comfort zone. Instead of forcing your energy field to morph back to the center, allow it to expand in all directions using all the other directional movements thereby making you more Centered and energetically balanced.
