In General Where is the flow? Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #89 New 05-24-2004 10:31 AM
Practiced for the test with Rick, then with Pat and one other unranked person for quite a while. It was interesting, and really shed some light on the fact that this is an art, and not a complete science. Different people require different things in a technique not only because of physical differences, but because of emotional, and energetic differences as well.

When working with the other unranked people I am very gentle, and very slow. This is interesting, it points out to me the huge holes that are in my techniques. Also the lack of flow with people that are nervous about what is going to happen next is hard to overcome. Part of this is that I am not all that good at the techniques, even after practicing them for months and months, so there are places that I am "DOING" the technique to the person, instaead of flowing our energies together. As a matter of fact the times that I flow are really rare, and always catch me off guard, I have asked several of the sempies after one of these events have happened "Did you do that or did I?" They always smile back big, rarely say anything back.
