I have been doing energy gates qigong for a few months now. I am at the stage of scanning my physical body and sinking chi, although it often seems during my practice that I may have passed onto the next stage of scanning and dissolving the energy body, as it seems difficult to distinguish what is what at times.
I have had some powerful releases of what I perceive to be negative, stuck energy. These have resulted in profuse sweating, diarreah, increased urination, nightmares at times, as well as memory flashbacks. These have not been so difficult to deal with, however, the sudden releases of pent up aggression and emotional repression have been more difficult to deal with. On occasions I have ended up shouting and swearing at people for no reason, or flying in to a rage and kicking some inanimate object. It seems to be contradictory behaviour to a spiritual practice, however, I do recall exibiting such behaviour at a certain age in the past. It seems like I may be nessecarily regressing to that period in order to deal with these issues more constructively, which, I guess, would be by dissolving them.
Has anyone else experienced similar things with this stage of energy gates qigong, and/ or does anyone have any advice on best methods to deal with such occurrences, or how to move safely onto the dissolving stage? It may be that I have been practising this and other exercises a little too intensely.
I first met Bruce in 1992, as a 17 year old, I had all sorts of fantasies about becoming strong and learning to defend myself. Bruce taught me that through hard work and daily practice a world of incredible depth and peace can be found within the art of Ba Gua Zhang that goes far beyond the ability to knock out King Kong.
