Ilkka, you said you were practicing Qigong, right? Somebody in my town is teaching Qigong and Taijiquan and I am thinking about practicing it as well. Would you mind relating your experience? Like how long you have been practicing and what you personally got out of it? Did you get to a level where you actually felt something when you played around with the energies in and around you and if yes, how long did it take until you got to this point. I am asking because when I look at some videos on the Internet, I see a bunch of people imitating the instructor by doing some very slow exercises, a bit of stretching, and I get the impression that most of them have no clue what they are doing beside the physical exercise. Of course, I can't feel anything just by watching a video. But still, I am not sure if joining a club is as helpful as I would expect it do be. Also, in a Western world, people often come and go into and out of clubs. And I have to wonder, when playing with bioenergies where group dynamics are essential, wouldn't this be a problem? Wouldn't this disrupt the whole flow of bioenergy or at least a big part of it?
It seems only logical that I ask these questions first, before it is I who disrupts the energy flow in the club by joining and then leaving shortly after, still feeling quite intense.

Spiritually, you need to be "grey" and not biased towards the light or the dark. Wizarding is a balance of bioforce; one cannot understand the light without dark, nor the dark without light. "We are grey. We stand between the darkness and the light."
I think this paragraph has triggered something last night. (Or maybe it was something from Being Erica
which I was watching before going to sleep. Last episode before sleep was s03e12 where she was finally ready for the next step in her life.)
Here is my dream: I was lying on a couch and noticed how the yellow lamp, that was hanging over the table, was dimming all by itself, as if the electricity was sucked out of it. When it went completely dark, I felt an oppressiveness inside of me. A very unusual and frightening feeling. I barely had any nightmares in the last decade, so I am not used to having feelings this intense. The light turned on again but then started to dim and went dark once more. Again I felt a strong oppressiveness. Then, in that dark room there was a bright, white, horizontal light on a table in the corner. It was the size of a glowing stick, the kind you take with you when you walk into a cave. I was about to stand up to check it out but woke up in the same moment.
After calming down my immediate thought was if I should join the Taiji/Qigong club. I guess, I have my answer right there.

Power out? Let's see if many hands can make the lights work.
I will try that the next time it happens.
I guess that includes raw cocoa beans.
