In addition to the physical layer of the body, there are energetic layers that are a replica of your physical body, but are nonphysical. In addition, there are points in this energetic replica that connect between your physical body to this energetic body. Those primary connecting points are what we know as acupuncture points. In addition to acupuncture points, our feelings also connect to the mind and nerves, as well as our energetic body.There are even deeper layers of the energy in the body, such as a "tank of energy" we call the Dantien, as well as our chakras. There is also a layer inside our energetic body that houses our very soul.
Our physical body is NOT just what we see in the mirror or what we see on the operating room table. We are made up of many different layers of subtle energy within our body, and they are all working together to give us what we need to experience and do in this life journey.
When we do Qi cultivation for our bodies, we learn to not only be aware of these different types of energy, but also learn to sense and experience these different layers in our body. But why would we want or need to do this? Because when we learn to tune in, sense, and experience these different layers in our body, we become more adept at tuning into the messages and communications going on within us. It's like being able to see the dashboard of a car and know when your energy is low, or if your engine light is on, or if you have low pressure in a tire. Being able to sense and read the messages within our body can help us improve our health, our wellness, or even help our ability to navigate the journey of our life path.
Qi cultivation - the ability to sense what is going on in our body, receive and understand the message, and then to act on the message is part of the journey of keeping our body - this vehicle - in its best-possible condition for an entire lifetime, has a lot of value. It is a foundation for us being able to live and achieve our life-time goals we came to earth to do.
