Welcome to my world. A world filled with all kinds of energies -- seen, but more importantly, unseen. They are all around us:
positive and negative
loving and hate filled
healing and destructive
mysterious or devilish
good and evil
I've heard tell that many tarot card readers do not just read what they see in the cards before them, but they can also intuit the thoughts going through their client's mind. There is a similar exchange in Qi Gong, a form of meditative exercise from many years ago in China. It enables the exerciser to move one's inner energy - qi (pronounced chee) -- throughout their own body. A skilled Qi Gong master is purported to utilize his or her own energy to send healing into another's body -- what might be considered a form of Asian shamanism.
These are just a few examples of relevant and very present connective energies that exist between all of us -- not just the practitioners -- as well as the natural world. I invite you to join me in this space where we will share, explore and practice all forms of energy exchange -- those we have heard about and experienced personally. And, we will also delve into the exciting process of discovery: what are the hidden secrets behind each case, those compelling stories, where energies played an important role? Perhaps an outcome might have been different if energy had been acknowledged and respected.
Kendal Yim -- who am I?
I am of Asian Chinese descent, born and raised in the global capital, Hong Kong. I now make my living in San Francisco where I have lived for over 20 years after brief stops in Toronto and NYC. My homeland, Hong Kong, is actually a tiny island situated along the coast of southern China. This is where all energy exchange practices originated such as Qi Gong, Feng Shui and the superstitious that are so often a part of a Chinese's daily life. I am a creative director in the advertising field, where, over several decades, I have encountered amazing exchanges of energy in numerous forms and with differing elements. Now is the time for us to share our experiences and communicate about the connective energies that have brought us together here at this very moment.
