We too often take it for granted that human beings only have five senses, and whenever something cannot be immediately explained within the framework of modern science, we tend to brush it off as an anomaly, or an oddity.
“I exchange energy with the animals, and then they go to sleep.” -Master Kanzawa Sensei
For thousands of years practitioners of eastern martial and meditative arts have been attuned to the subtle presence of chi, the life force energy that animates all living things. Masters of the cultivation and use of this energy have forever been able to perform remarkable feats of concentration, longevity and strength, yet we in the West are have always been reluctant to credit them for their mastery of something we cannot even grasp… that there is a subtle energy that connects all living things.
Qigong is the practice of cultivating the energy, and Japanese chi master, Kanzawa Sensei is known for his ability to control animals with the power of his mind and chi, a rare and extraordinary example of the powers of Qigong. By standing near animals, concentrating his mind, and manipulating chi with his hands, he has demonstrated that he can calm, entrance, and even put to sleep many animals, including buffalo, elephants, even ostriches.
As he explains it, he exchanges energy with the animals, and then they go to sleep. As simple as that.
Featured in an episode of the television program, ‘Stan Lee’s Superhumans,’ Master Kanzawa is seen visiting an alpaca ranch in California, where he baffles ranch owner Cecilia Secka by subduing an entire herd of her alpacas. In addition to this remarkable demonstration, a subsequent message on the ranch’s website notes that after the filming, Master Kanzawa did some extraordinary healing work to an injured animal:
Further in the video presentation, Master Kanzawa is seen working with a herd of buffalo, an unapproachably large and dangerous animal. As witness to this, a veterinarian familiar with buffalo was present, and was, of course, flabbergasted by what the chi master was able to do with these enormous beasts.
The comments between the host and the veterinarian after Master Kanzawa subdues the buffalo get right to the heart of the blind spot in Western science, showing how there is simply no room in the current paradigm for this ancient wisdom.
Host: “Doctor, there any way to explain this in the realm of science?
Veterinarian: “Not in the medicine I know.”
Life is connected in ways more subtle than most of us can ordinarily sense, and Western science is way behind the curve when it comes to understanding the depth of this connection. The energy body is one of our innate super powers, and although abilities like this are typically relegated to freak show media in this rigidly thought-controlled world we live in, we all have the ability to cultivate and develop the energy body.
