Chi Energy and Birds of a Feather Wisdom
“Men of my age flock together; we are birds of a feather, as the old proverb says. “- Plato’s Republic.
An article in Wired magazine sparked a thought that resounded not only with the aforementioned proverb, but also with some of the wise council provided by Sifu Jones: training partners and the sense of “community” is important when undergoing Chi Energy training [specifically] and the esoteric journey [in general].
The concept of the “community” has evolved with technological advances. No longer limited by distance, family and friends are able to stay connected via a plethora of networking capabilities: telephone; email; web-cams; etceteras. Even virtual environments that form social networks provide a means of maintaining current and cultivating new relationships. Opportunities to befriend a friend’s friend are simply a “click” away. Regardless, however, of the nature of the relationships, up close and personal or electronic, the axiom holds true: “Birds of a feather flock together”.
“The Buddy System: How Medical Data Revealed Secret to Health and Happiness”, written by Jonah Lehrer and published in Wired documents relates the findings of Nicholas Christakis (Harvard social scientist) and James Fowler (UC San Diego political scientist). Based upon research regarding a Framingham, Massachusetts community in 1948 that included parents, children, friends and friends of friends, the extrapolated data was jaw dropping.
Via the precision of statistical analysis and rigor, Christakis and Fowler noted some very interesting things about the Framingham, Massachusetts community that speak volumes to our everyday lives and choices we make. For example: “In the early ’70s, 65 percent of Framingham residents ages 40 to 49 smoked regularly. By 2001, only 22 percent consumed one or more cigarettes daily. But the smoke didn’t clear at random: Friends and family had a decisive influence.”
Fowler noted, concerning smoking, “People quit together, or they didn’t quit at all.” This buddy system of sorts carries with it significant “weight”. The study also showed, with conclusive evidence, “If one person became obese, the likelihood that his friend would follow suit increased by 171 percent.” In essence, the data uncovered and analysis performed confirmed a truth my mother expressed to me during my childhood that Sifu Jones later hinted at for students in the School of Chi Energy: we either are, or become, the company we keep.
Anyone engaged in esoteric practices and meditative efforts knows this to be a lonely journey. However, regardless of the end-goal, our day-to-day lives are filled with interactions and varying degrees of intimacy and relationships with individuals who may or may not have similar interests and habits. The research performed by Christakis and Fowler should cause each of us to take a moment to pause and reflect on our lives and the people with whom we associate:
- Are we affiliated with people who are positive?
- Are our closest friends’ sources of encouragement?
- Do our actions and words match?
- Are the members of our individual networks orchestrated in such a way that we make beautiful music or a discordant and meaningless mixture of sounds?
This is not to say that we should disassociate from coworkers who are not engaged in Chi Energy. Nor should refuse to eat lunch with friends who may be overweight, but we should, at the very least, be aware of these factors; we may, more importantly, act agents of change, should we find discrepancies within the lives of our friends and loved ones.
What is the rule when associating with others who are not like minded?
“Does this mean to be ‘wary of strangers’ and treat everyone like they’re going to poorly influence you? No.. not by my eyes and belief. Again, know what mindset you come from and give to people who could be your friends and close associations, what you’d like to be given to you. Live the Golden Rule as You become who you associate yourself with.
Fortunately, the School of Chi Energy offers an Instructor’s forum where you can find support, positive words of encouragement and advice regarding the journey. It is at the School of Chi Energy that interactive online training provides students with opportunities to fellowship and interacts with other “like minded” men and woman at similar stages of their journey. This is done via conference calls; recorded Q & A sessions moderated by Sifu Jones and Sifu Cicero with students and certified instructors alike; we surround ourselves with a network of like-minded individuals, encouraging one another to fly higher and further.
Be well; be mindful.

- How can a person activate their own chakras? Does your school teach this and is it a safe thing to do?
- I’ve heard you say that a person’s ability to visualize images well, will directly affect their ability to activate their own body’s chakras, why would this be true?
- I understand why someone wants to activate their inner chakras because they want to get more power and energy from their body, but are there any other reasons to do this?
- I went through a number of energy systems that taught you how to activate inner chakras, but after seeing how your school is teaching this, why is your method so different?
- What’s the difference between going through the Kundalini experience and that of activating a chakra? Is it the same thing?
Chi Energy Instructors:
that have gone thru all three years of School are invited to take their chi energy skills to the next level. The Chi Energy Instructor will be shown that the energy forms they learned in the first three years, provide the foundation for the Fourth Year’s Vortex Training.
Instructors learn that it is only by going thru the first three years of form training, that provides them the ability to activate an inner vortex. It is thru regularly performing the Vortex Training and the Chi Energy Circuit Training exercises that Instructors are able to reach the higher levels in energy work.
The choice of the Chi Energy Instructor to train in Year Four rewards them with abilities that would be considered beyond the possible. It is in this year that the Instructors are required to relax down to deeper sensitivity levels and transfer temperature control for longer periods due to the ever increasing buildup of the new energy form. They learn new ways to adjust and adapt to the more powerful overloads that can and will occur in that Instructor year.
Instructors are taught to pay close attention to the rules and discuss their training during this year with an Advanced Chi Energy Instructor due to the increased abilities, but potential bad side effects. Only Instructors, who join the Instructor’s Forum and have gone thru all three years of our School will have access and know all the topics that will be taught in this exceptional Instructor’s Fourth Year Chi Training program. School of Chi Energy Instructors that go thru the fourth year of chi training will have permanent access to the Instructor’s Forum at no charge.

Training for Advanced Chakra Vortex Energy Techniques
Chi Energy Healing Students training at the School of Chi Energy are able to reach the higher levels in energy cultivation by learning the specially designed “Nerve Fiber Building Exercise”. This exercise is a flow pattern that builds up the nerve fibers in the body to high level capacity to perform an “energy projection” for healing and extreme abilities. When “energy” is built up in the electrical system to increased levels it will provide the advanced student the power to activate their chakra vortexes.

Chi Cultivation at the School of Chi Energy is a method that students learn to build up high levels of energy using their body’s own entire nerve fiber system. Chi Students practice a daily nerve fiber building energy exercise that engages the release of biophotons from the nerve fibers which then mold into a tangible “energy form”. Students learn how to utilize these ‘energy forms’ with the transfer of a good feeling and cool temperature into the biophotons to perform advanced abilities and healing techniques. There are energy modalities that do teach a student how to move around their chi (liquid chi), but they do not teach this unique technique of actually forming the chi “into place”.
