I was sort of turned off my the lack of serious posts in this topic. Literally none. Kind of baffles me as this is ATS and usually someone will have a
serious say in the matter but I guess that will have to be me.
Personal if you believe in any form of being an ascended being be in mentally or spiritually, I don't see how any of this would be too impossible. If
you believe in any enlightened beings of the past, Jesus Christ being a popular one, then you would realize that feats of this nature are not out of
the realm of possibility.
The problem with anime and video games is that they represent the energy from the hands as solid, visible energy, where in my experience (yes MY
experience) I have felt it as completely invisible and next to impossible to comprehend the magnitude. Only if you train yourself to visualize the
energy as a color or certain image can you then see it, however, this would not help the untrained eye to do the same.
Most of the traditional martial arts focus on harnessing the energy within the capsule of the body, however, I have dabbled in some in the past the
dealt with focusing your spiritual energy outside of the body. This led to phenomena of being able to sense other nearby spiritual bodies and
strangely enough, stealing spiritual energy to increase your own.
Only once in my practice have I ever been able to produce something substantial between my hand, but my fingers were touching to form an enclosed bowl
shape. The effort that went into it left me feeling entirely exhausted but I have no doubt in my mind that the spiritual energy accumulated in my
palms was enough to push them apart, leaving me incapable of bring them together for the duration of it.
I never really did follow up on it after that simply because of the pure exhaustion it gave me for accomplishing something so simple. To fathom the
amount of stamina and spiritual aura you would need to have to actually harness the energy in a beneficial way is simply astounding. Even if you could
accomplish the feat, the most you would be able to do is use the energy to hold someone at bay or push them back.
I found the practices of "pushing" my body's aura outward to be by far more beneficial than projecting the energy away from me. It heightens your
senses and leaves your body feeling refreshed even after a short period of time. One might question the morals of in essence stealing someone else's
life force through this practice, but alas what is progression without some sort of sacrifice.
I would appreciate any comments, critiques, or experiences if anyone else has had similar, but I'm afraid I'm not much for the joke crowd.
