Q&A 37. How do you prevent your own energy from dissipating?

Q: What should I do if I feel that my energy is being lost or leaking out?

A:

  • If you feel that your energy is leaking out, you should first identify when the leakage occurred.
  • If it occurred at night and you did not lose your temper or get angry, it could be due to the following two reasons:
    • Someone is stealing your energy;
    • You are leaking energy. People who perform recitations have light and energy. If you do not control your energy properly you could experience leakage.
  • As soon as you notice that your energy is leaking out:
    • You need to guard the acupuncture points on your body.  Join your palms together (so that the ten fingers are together with your thumbs touching each other) and sit cross-legged to prevent your energy from leaking;
    • Males need to guard the “Dan Tian” acupuncture point (located about three finger widths below the navel);
    • Females need to guard the “Dan Zhong” acupuncture point (located midway between the breasts);
    • At the same time, you should recite the Great Compassion Mantra continuously for approximately 5 minutes.
