My Tai Chi Experience

Recommended Posts


What a wonderful experience! I did not want it to end. The class was held in the Bhudda room (I could feel the power there) and there were about 12 of us, half of us being there the first time. Everyone was friendly and I was accepted like everyone else.

This was not a martial arts class. It dealt with slow movements designed to release the Chi. It lasted about an hour and by the end I was totally calm and relaxed. I'm usually a little aggressive when driving, but tonight I was not in a hurry at all. No tension whatsoever. On my way home I stopped to pick up a script and forgot my wallet. It didn't phase me in the slightest. Unbelievable! This is a feeling I could get used to, and I definitely will be going back next week.

Hi Jennifer,

Focusing Chi/Qi/Prana is really pretty easy. I read about it when I was young, but was skeptical.

The human body is an elctro-chemical system, like a battery. Which also happens to be connected to the powersource of Creation, and is measurable by scientific means.

I learned to focus Chi after years of trying, finding it one night quite by accident. I have used "Chi Scan" for many years now to help manage the pain associated with old injuries. I will try to describe how to begin to focus and move Chi.

1) Seat yourself comfortably, in an area that is not breezy, or has any noticable flowing air. This is critical for feeling Chi for the first couple times.

2) Relax, take as many deep breaths as neccessary to calm, and de-stress yourself.

3) With your arms comfortably resting by your side, your forearms, and hands resting on your lap, or legs.

4) Bring your forearms up, palms facing inwards to each other, about shoulder-width apart.

5) Focus your attention on your palms.

6) Very slowly, bring your palms towards each other, but do not touch your hands together.

7) You will begin to feel almost a breezy pressure between your hands. After you get the hang of what you are trying to feel, and you gather energy, it will feel like holding a baloon between your hands and pressing it. (this is why you want to be in an area that is not breezy)

8) Bring your hands together, not touching, then move them apart. You should feel the expansion of the Chi.

9) As you get a feel for the Chi Ball, the next step, is to breath in Chi, and focus it to the Chi Ball. This is the focus of Tai Chi, and what the practicioner is doing with thier hands in front of them.

10) The next step is to learn to move the Chi Ball through your body, known as "scanning". This is an aid to healing, and you can literally place the Chi Ball on an injury, or ill spot on your body.

11) Then you learn to focus the Chi to specific points in the body, and "breath in Chi" to those points.

12) You can also feel your Chi, by placing the plam of your hand a few inches above your arm, slowly closing the distance until you feel the "warmth", or pressure. You are now feeling your electro-chemical field, or Aura.

13) After you learn to focus Chi, and move it through the body, you may want to consider working on your Chakras.

14) Then comes Kundalini, talk about a rush!

I hope this helps. Good luck.

Hi Jennifer!

Thanks so much for sharing about your experience!

I have also found Tai Chi very relaxing, very centering, very grounding!

I hope to hear more about your fun with Tai Chi! :D

Gina, Fantastic instructions for finding/feeling Chi! Thanks so much! :D

Oh, and yes, activating kundalini can be quite an experience! I was lucky enough to have had people around me, advising me to gently activate kundalini and to hold great respect for kundalini. This has made my experience much more safe and enjoyable.

Thanks Again,

      I have my first endo appointment today. So nervous.   My wife is hoping they will find something wrong with me and that I won’t be eligible for HRT. She is still very much against anything that even hints I’m a woman. Hoping she comes around eventually, but I can’t keep going on the way I am now.    Have a a great day everyone.    *hugs*

      I still wear my breast forms whenever I feel like that I need a little help.  My natural size is a 38B and my breast forms are a B cup so it does help me when I am feeling like I need a little help.  But there are some times I sleep in my breast forms and some times I dont.   But to me it is all about comfort and how realistic you look.   What is the difference between a Trans woman and a Cross Dresser?  The Cross Dresser can't wait to get home to put her bra ON, a Trans woman can't wait to get home and take her bra OFF.            I love Vicky's quote here and I guess that I am a Trans individual cause I will admit that I love wearing a bra but OMG it feels so good to take it off when I get home.

      A year in and I still don’t mind wearing a bra. At the start I liked the bralettes best. There still my go to for pjs on super hot nights too. Underwire isn't comfortable, but it sure does a great job of pushing everything where it belongs.  I use the little add a cup chicken cutlets still at times. Usually with something that shows a lot of cleavage cause the rest of the time I just don’t care.

      For me it’s one simple thing. No more being fake. I get to meet people and be myself. I get to dress walk talk act and be myself. That’s it.

      I am in a bit of a twighlight zone as I am not really sure if I am out or not. This is maybe partly due to not (at the moment) intending hormones, surgery or legal changes. That said I am pretty much out and relaxed in it. Yesterday I had a chance meeting with one of my partner's sisters (who knows) and her new boyfriend who she has just moved in with. Interestingly it was a good meeting quickly relaxing, although he was obviously initially surprised (actually he was so attractive I think the body language kicked in lol, a good catch for her). It is seldom, if ever, I get embarrassed when I chance meet someone I know when wearing a skirt or dress these days as it is me. A good point to me about coming out is not really having to think much about it any more.   Tracy

      I forgot to post this yesterday. I got Ma'am d. Or at least I hope it was.   I help out a lady customer with some parts. As she walked away I swore I hear her say, Thanks, Ma'am. It is my first. With my hair in a high pony tail (girl style, to keep it off my neck in the heat) and my fingernails painted + my ladies Minnie Mouse watch.   It felt good.   Kymmie
