It’s believed that there’s a fiber network, which is an energetic blueprint that outlines the physical body. The driver, the director of this creative vehicle is what we choose to think. What our thoughts does, is creates the energy which manifests into matter, determining the fate of ourselves and our body.
Many believe that this is the process of energy transfer to matter manifestation. That what this energetic support does, is it surrounds the body. What many refer this invisible energy band to, is our aura.
What Is “Chi”
The theory being, that the body responds to this aura along with the cleansing of it, by directly responding to the purity of our thoughts. Those in the Eastern world refer to this energy surrounding the body as “chi.”
