On it's own this method cultivates a powerful internal energy and if the form is understood there are many devastating martial applications to the moves. It's a system in itself. My own experience shows that it increases the effectiveness of other energy's in the body.
As mentioned in another post, we train our different methods at specific times. Morning, Midday and night. This meditation is no different and is practiced after another meditation that gathers all the elements at once. See if you can guess which element this method connects you too?
