There are two main paths when it comes to neigong/neidan. One is very well known in the west and it's where a container is created in the lower abdomen to act as a dantian. This "dantian" is not "linked" with the meridian system and requires multitudes of practices to target various meridians for development. This can easily result in creating an imbalance in the energy system and these imbalances we see very often when people finally do come over to china to learn.
The other path, the one I teach, is activating the "true dantian" which is fully integrated with the meridian system and results in channels/meridians developing on their own as the lower dantian is cultivated. Qi slowly pushes into the channels as the dantian become stronger and stronger and very little additional practices are required to develop the other channels. This process is automatic and the various gates and orbits are opened as a byproduct of dantian cultivation and not separate practices.
The difference between the two is knowing how to activate the true dantian vs creating a container to house qi which isn't fully integrated with the meridian system. There is a process that must be taken step by step to activate the dantians function to store qi, which will over time when filled run over into the channels resulting in tangible results.
Electric qi isn't some secret method or process, it's merely refining qi properly and having the true dantian activated so that it can hold qi. I know these methods and will help those who study with me to not only be able to store qi in this way, but explain the methods and ways to enhance health which will directly affect the progress they make from neigong.
My approach to practice is to first, know the correct methods to get results, but secondly, knowing what to do in terms of lifestyle to ensure your health continually improves. An unhealthy body does not produce a lot of qi and will struggle to hold onto it. Health and understanding how to maintain or increase it is vital.
