I’d like some feed back from others in the program. As you relax and engage the fascial system what do you feel? I have a sense almost like a layers of a sheath material. I feel little pops, crunches, pops. Is there anyone feeling this experiencesJune 12, 2017 at 1:41 pm #136381
Personally, I experience a lot of different sensations. It makes for good mindfulness practice since sometimes it isn’t the most comfortable feeling, and the tendency is to not do things or to guard from things that make me (I’ll own it) uncomfortable.
I experience a lot of heat release. Sometimes feels like a sharp burning. There can also be a general ache which seems to have no reference point to any muscle in particular. As fascia begins to release, nerves are able to slide where they previously weren’t. This also feels a little like a burning sensation. It typically will last no more than a day and then there will be a lot more actual awareness of the area that was “activating” before.
Recently, my solar plexus has been opening up, which has caused some nausea, and a lot of burping. All good things, in my opinion, as again I have a referential access to these parts of my body that were previously rather numb.
Finally, I will say there is also emotional release with it all. “The issues are in the tissues” as it is said.
All in all, a process worth taking one’s time with, and allowing for a great level of personal nurturing.

I’ve heard Bruce say something to the effect that the little pops and crunches smooth out with practice, in the marriage of heaven and earth qigong.
I’ve found, if possible, to try to practice in a way that things don’t pop or crunch. To take that as me exceeding my 70%.June 24, 2017 at 9:31 pm #136383
I’ve done energy moving on myself and others. How i would describe what you may be experiencing is: There are layers / barriers your body builds up. These layers are analogous to shields on a space ship. There’s not much too them other then they are there. After moving energy around you open up these shields and then get to the core. this core is the real block / injury. As you release this there will be creaks / pops / movement / … If you continue to work with this level the blocks will open and your body will heal. The popping will go away eventually.June 27, 2017 at 3:59 pm #136384
I think I will clarify a bit on what I learn from Bruce’s qigong. He has been teaching qigong in great detail and in many area not explain by other qigong teacher. His explaination of fascias is new and very revealing. From what I understand, it is one of the most important component in the qi body that hindered many people from being able to open up to qi movement or awareness. He has never explain inaccessibiliy to qi or the body as having a kind of qi sheild. It is more like we are mentally block, we don’t have the consciousness.. In a fully fuctioning body qi behave as a one fully intellegent unit, i.e. from head to leg it moves as one unit. To think of qi as a shield will be quite strange.
I feel like I know what Bruce is teaching even though I am a beginner learner and what I know is mostly from reading all his books. I suppose I have a good general knowledge because I have been reading and checking up on the topics of qi and qi exercise for some 50 years already.
I suppose we learn more when we discussion more.
