    Folks:
    I felt chi sink for the first time yesterday (or another level of it, anyway). It was one of those moments where you think to yourself “Oh, so THATS what Bruce meant”. Standing posture, breathing and doing my best to sink. Before it had always seemed almost like pushing down with my awareness – this time, I was able to *allow* the sinking to take place, almost like I pulled my awareness away from underneath and let the chi fall. What I felt was a slow wave of warmth. I thought perhaps I was overheating at first (In Minnesota wintertime, the lower level study I practice in is cold when I begin but after the heater kicks in and I’ve been working a bit it warms up, sometimes too much), but the warmth was… like hot water percolating down through a porous substance.
    Fun stuff.
    I welcome any comments of others experience of what chi sinking is like for them.

    Clenching your jaw and then releasing the tension was a new technique for me. Bruce mentions this in one of the later DVDs.
    I’d been doing the same thing by clenching and releasing my fists.
    But doing it with my jaw produces a much stronger sense of energy dropping through the body to the feet.
    This is sort of an artificial, mechanical tactic, but it does give me a feel for sinking.
