The human body has what is commonly referred to as “energy” associated with it. That energy can be treated in different ways in order to help visualize it’s behavior. It is useful to treat the energy of the human body as something insubstantial that encloses the body, and it is useful to treat the energy of the human body as something that is delivered to an object by some part of the body.
It is also useful to treat the energy of the human body as if it is something that can be “put” on an object. A more familiar way to phrase “putting the energy of the body on an object of interest” is to say “focusing the attention or intent on an object of interest.
The action of the human figure in the following picture can be described as focusing his attention on, focusing his intent on, or putting his energy on the red object in front of him
The next picture shows a child who is focusing his attention or intent on a television in front of him. He can also be described as “putting his energy” on the television.
The attention of a human being is usually thought of as being related to the eyes. The example of the boy looking at the TV reinforces that preconception because his eyes are focused on the television.
The attention or intent of a human being does not necessarily have to be focused on the same location their eyes are focused. Please take a moment to examine the next example picture.
The man’s eyes are focused on the camera,
so if this example was treated in the same way as the little boy looking at the television example, the man would be described as “putting his attention or intent on the camera” or “focusing his energy on the camera”.
Look at the man’s hands though. They are pointing at a poster on the wall,
and his head is inclined towards the same poster.
The man’s body is focused on the poster, so the man could be described as focusing his attention or intent on the poster, or “putting his energy on the poster”.
Actually both answers are correct. The man’s body is focused on the poster while his eyes are focused on the camera, which means his energy is “split”. Instead of putting all of his energy on one location, he has “split” his energy so he could put it on two different location.
Just because the eyes and body and focused on different locations does not necessarily mean the individual’s energy is split. In many instances where the body and the eyes are focused on different locations, all of the energy is actually being put at the location the body is focused on. The eyes are looking a different direction because the head and body are misaligned, not because the eyes are focusing on anything of interest.
The following list presents some observations about treating the energy of the human body as something that can be focused on an object of interest.
(1) – The energy of the entire body should be focused on the object of interest for health reasons.
Splitting the energy of the body to focus on different objects of interest can be just as bad as the word “splitting” implies. Doesn’t it instinctively sound bad to “split” anything in the human body? Splitting the energy of the body induces pressure in parts of the body not designed to withstand that pressure, which can lead to health problems. These statements all apply to individuals who are unknowingly splitting their energy.
That distinction is important to make because splitting the energy of the body can also be the high level attainment of someone who has spent years of physical practice in pursuit of that ability. The difference in the two situations is that the body of the person who has done physical practice to purposefully gain the skill of splitting their energy, can withstand the pressure that is generated by that process.
(2) – It is common for for the energy of the individuals in the following categories to be split between multiple focal points.
(A) – Young People
Young people frequently display the signs of split energy because they have not finished growing. As a result they do not control their body well enough to focus all of their energy on one location. It is also common for the energy of young people to be unfocused because they are not mentally strong enough or disciplined enough.
(B) – Old People
The energy of old people will become unfocused for the same reasons the energy of young people is unfocused. Just the causes for the reasons are different.
Young people have trouble focusing their body because it is not fully developed. Old people have trouble focusing their body because their body is failing and refuses to respond.
Young people have trouble mentally focusing because they are just learning to use their mind. Old people have trouble mentally focusing because their mind is decaying.
(3) – Sick People
The energy of sick people will become unfocused because the illness either interferes with the body’s ability to respond to their commands, or the illness interferes with their mind so it loses the ability to focus on anything.
(4) – Anyone who desires to misdirect another individual
The energy of the body can be unfocused on purpose. The reason why is misdirection. “Misdirection” is convincing someone to look in one direction while the person who is doing the misdirecting does something else at the other location his split energy is focused on.
There are many situations where that ability would be useful. Almost all of them are as dishonest and hurtful as the description implies. Most successful criminals are successful because they misdirect their victim’s attention one way while they steal something from the other way.
A pickpocket for instance would talk to the target so the target puts their attention on the pickpockets head and face to listen to them. Because the pickpocket can split his energy, he can keep talking to the victim normally while his hand reaches into the victim’s pocket to steal something.
Anyone involved in fighting will find misdirection useful. By splitting their energy and tricking an opponent to look at one location their energy is focused on, they can hit or kick the opponent with the arm or leg the rest of their energy was focused on.
