Are QiGong Master Jo’s (Zhou) Qi Powers For Real?

May 20th, 2010 No comments

Today’s article is actually (a re-post of) a comment that I wrote in response to an article with a Riply’s video from youtube titled “Qigong Master Jo (Zhou) Boils Water With Qi/Chi From His Hands” showing Master Zhou bringing water to a boiling temperature using Qi energy. Find the article and video here.

The following is what I am taking away from reading the string of comments posted by Advisor Matt:

We have two opinions, one is that Master Zhou is authentic the other is that he is using a trick to generate heat (some called hims a fraud).

Against:

The following was offered as an explanation to how the heat-generating trick worked:

“.. Aluminum foil from a cigarette pack, wets is with some Hg2Cl2?
“.. towel had been soaked in the bichloride of mercury solution, then dried; once it has been rehydrated, and the aluminum foil added, the reaction takes place”

and from Eric Zammitt (comment 20) we read

“.. water that he used on the foil and touched it to my tongue. It burned!” The water had a chemical taste. He suggests that a chemical compound was used when he said “Sodium Hydroxide, NaOH, commonly known as Lye, reacts with aluminum and generates great heat”

For:

Many wrote positive comments. From reading the comments, it seems people have met him in person and did not see any evidence of a trick.

Commenter Cyre (comment 24) said “i dipped my fingers in the cup of fluid, smelled it, and even tasted it. As far as my perception stood. It was regular water,” Yet, Mr. Zammitt said these people must have missed the evidence.

Comment 52 says “Master Zhou is for real. The person who claims that he found caustic liquid is lying… I knew Master Zhou for several years and not only received treatments from him but also studied with him. He is an amazing healer and a generous person who teaches everything he knows.”

Comment 53 is from another student that studied with master Zhou and it testifies that Master Zhou is for real. I suggest you read it.

The video does mention that Ripleys provided all materials and they were later tested for chemicals.

It is worth mentioning that none of the comments I saw was against the effectiveness of QiGong with the exception to the mention of “Subliminal Distraction exposure” and how SD “caused mental breaks” leading practitioners especially in group practice to believe in the presence of “superhuman strength”, the comment goes on to mention this can be seen in QiGong or Kundalini Yoga. At this time, I don’t know much about “Subliminal Distraction”, I simply am rephrasing what the comment said.

Both “for” and “against” comments to the authenticity of Master Zhou or the use of chemicals cannot be proven nor discounted by myself. I only have these written words to go by.

I suppose, I’d have to visit with Master Zhou myself and bring my own materials and taste the water. Even better, I can ask him to generate heat without the aluminum foil, water or the towels.

Qigong Master Jo (Zhou) Boils Water With Qi/Chi From His Hands

April 28th, 2010 6 comments


This is not an urban myth or an X-files episode. Qigong Master Jo (Zhou) lives today and he continues to boil water with hands, even an infrared camera captured the heat produced from his hands. Abilities like these are found within the practice of QiGong. They are not paranormal, only normal. To the practitioner, these abilities are very normal (not paranormal) and they follow the Chinese science of harnessing the power of Qi from themselves or the universe.

Before coming to the United States, Master Zhou traveled throughout mainland China teaching Qi Gong, treating patients, and demonstrating his unusual skills in the martial arts. His reputation finally spread to all parts of the country. Highly respected and honored in China, Master Zhou has been called a Treasure of the Nation.

Master Zhou practices in LA, California at ‘Full Spectrum Coaching’. Here’s a link to their website: http://holosla.com

Caption about Master Zhou from the website above (http://holosla.com/team/master-zhou-ting-jue/):

Qi Gong master, Zhou Ting-Jue was born in 1934 in China. At the age of seven, he began learning martial arts and traditional Chinese medical theory under the guidance of his uncle, a Taoist priest. He often secluded himself at Wu Dang Mountain, in the temple of his uncle’s sect, for advanced studies. There, he cultivated the discipline of Qi Gong and developed a growing understanding of the true meaning and potentials of Qi and its relationship to life and the universe. His mentors included many famous Chinese Qi Gong masters, who passed on to him their personal knowledge about the mysterious power of Qi Gong.

After studying the knowledge that was presented by each of his master-teachers, Master Zhou created his own school of Qi Gong. His unique skills and techniques have contributed to and broadened the scope of traditional Qi Gong. These abilities form the basis of the care he provides and the amazing effect it has in promoting health and curing disease.

In 1991, Master Zhou was invited to the “International Southern California Hai Hua Cup Martial Arts Tournament” as a competitor, where, at 60 years of age, he won the championship two consecutive years. Subsequently, the tournament committee, recognizing his expertise, appointed him as a consultant and judge.

Dude Gathering the Chi – Super-Natural or Simply Natural?

April 27th, 2010 No comments

I am not saying this is real. I wasn’t there to witness this. Assuming this footage is authentic and real with no tricks, you may think science cant prove this phenomena, or that this simply doesn’t fit and shouldn’t work according to our current knowledge of physics.

Please remember that science’s duty is to observe nature then try to explain it and create what we call laws of nature that can be used to increase knowledge of other natural systems or to produce useful technology. Now, when nature does not fit into the natural ‘laws’, what should be done? Certainly not ignoring nature as nature is the teacher, we try to interpret it.

Our natural laws are in reality human laws, not natural laws. Our human-made laws are what we think nature’s laws are. However, when nature does not follow, then we must re-examine our laws (i.e. interpretation of nature). Bending nature to fit into our laws is simply ignorant.

If one is to have a pure pursuit of true natural laws one should observe nature and get rid of one’s egos. You must approach nature with an open mind.

Your thoughts are filtered by your beliefs. Change your definitions that create your beliefs and anything is possible.
What is para-normal to some is “normal” to others.

Video: Gathering the Chi
The youtube video below shows smoke rises from this Chinese medical practitioner’s fingers as he gathers the energy or “qi” to help cure a patient. Later he creates heat over dry newspapers which smolder as he concentrates his energy to show how refined chi can be powerful.

Neikung Power, QiGong Power, BioElectricity, Kinesis, John Chang, Qi/Chee Power Videos

April 25th, 2010 1 comment

If you searched the words QiGong or Neikung on youtube you will come across 4 videos of a Master / Sufi referred to as John Chang. He seems to be able to generate some sort of electrical energy from within his body’s Chee/Qi or life force and the use of Yin and Yang. He can use this energy to do acupuncture and also to set fires in paper and push a chopstick through a wooden table or chair.

He mentioned meditation, the use of Yin/Yang, some of the comments mentioned Neikung, NaiGong, QiGong, Shai Tsu, electrokinesis, Pyrokinesis, Tai Chi, Mo Pai.. There are many videos on youtube, each has many comments. If you have time you may enjoy reading them.. or it may be a total waste of time.

All the videos and text found below are from youtube. I don’t know if the 4 videos refer to the same guy (they claim to) and what I know is limited to what is seen below so please don’t ask me for info about this guy, I really don’t know much about him; I wish I did though. If you know something about John Chang please post a comment to share it with the world. Enjoy!

Video 1 – New John Chang video
Lawrence Blair returns to the legendary Magus of Java to shoot even more mind blowing footage.

video 2 – John Changs 1st Westerner student
It was just last year I found this person. He is the first Westerner to ever be admitted into the ancient school of Mo Pai. About four or five other Westerners have become students, but all have failed for one reason or another. There has never been another Westerner to have ever reached the 3rd level.
This person is currently in training to go on to the 4th level of nai gong which is different from chi gong, despite what other alleged, pseudo anthorities say.
The short segment is his testing for the 3rd level when he passed in 2000.
Notice that the boxes are against a wall, and they fall forward and not backward as if there was something blowing them backward from the front. There are two methods of either pulling them forward or pushing them backward. The distance between his hand and the boxes is over 9 feet; a tape measure is seen on the floor.
As you can see in the video, along with the Wester student is the world famous master/teacher, John Chang and his son.

video 3 – John Chang chopstick demonstration

Those who have read Kosta’s book The Magus of Java know that at some point John Chang picked up a chopstick, transferred his qi into it and pushed it with but little effort through thick wood. In this video he performs this demo. Credit goes to serialjunkie for this video.

video 4 – John Chang歌唱表演指導 02

John Chang is practicing something called tele-emphaty.He can ‘feel’ the emotion from another? person, and then send it back to them. In this case, he multiplying it back to the girl, according to the emotion the girl has, based on the memory of that song she sing.
