Hello my dears , I hope everyone is having a happy new year. I recently had a very great conversation with my cousin, who is like a little brother to me haha. For whatever reason, we started talking about meditation, etc... and gradually I realized he was very keen on experiencing energy/magick. So apparently he had been meditating for a while but he didn't feel anything. Specifically, he was trying to levitate haha. I told him the secret to levitation is very simple - just concentrate on the air. Gradually you feel a lightness in emotions, then a physical lightness like you weigh almost nothing (this is as far as I've reached), then you are light enough to walk on water, then walk on spiderwebs, then finally walk on beams of light (as far as my master has reached). This is the basic procedure that yogis in the himalayas use to fly around. So he was interested in learning more about energy, so later on when we got home, I showed him a few qigong routines and also neijia meditations. In one particular set, we were condensing energy into a ball - I really wanted him to feel energy so that he knows it's real so I expanded my aura to cover him so that he had something to work with. He felt it! It was (in his words) some kind of force/resistance pushing his hands apart. I was really happy about this . Then later on I showed him a bit of telekinesis and how concentrating on an object gradually loosens up the illusion/delusion of separation...and how energy builds up in an area like a snowfall. At one point he asked me if this was magic(k). I made it clear that I don't consider it to be particularly mystical and that it's just a part of reality like everything else but...yeah it's not a good idea to talk to his father about what he just saw lol. His dad is SUPER, SUPER religious and a local pastor hahah even though my cousin is basically an atheist. His mind was blown that this stuff is actually real. My main question is this: so I told him to do a few sets at home and tell me what came up (and to take it easy!) but then he said that he didn't feel anything. I was wondering on how to motivate my little bro to keep practicing. I suppose this has to come from within. Qigong, neigong, magick, etc... have very, very high barriers to entry and it's just a matter of daily practice - especially without the daily attention of an advanced master. And you're not supposed to chase results or powers, just let them develop naturally. I'm still very much a newbie, and I don't think I'm nearly advanced enough to properly guide him. What would be the best way to motivate him to train? Keep training with him or just let him train alone and if he's dedicated, his results will manifest by themselves? Thoughts?
