Is there an opposite or complimentary energy form to Qi?

I am a pagan (some might say a witch of sorts), and I have been experimenting with the accumulation of energy in different parts of the body. The first energy form I was ever made aware of was what the chinese call Qi (Chi), but when working ritual I use what feels to be a different type of energy. Qi feels to me to be quite neutral and an almost magnetic force, but the other kind of energy I experience seems to take the form of heat (both a warm heat, and a “cold heat”). This makes me wonder, is there another name for this latter kind of energy, is it the same as Qi in a different way, and is there a second kind of energy in chinese philosophy alongside Qi (I know the chinese like their opposites and the concept of balance 🙂 )?

Chi is the general term for the energy flow
However, it is divided into the “yang” chi and the “yin” chi, much like the taoist principles

It is all the same. Are you using this for healing (as in Reiki)? Are you working to awaken your kundalini? I have known Reiki recipients to feel a cool breeze, others intense heat, and still others a strong vibration during a healing session. I have personally experienced warm rushes of energy up and down my legs and through my body (over the river and through the woods?) as the result of working my energy. I have also felt pure vibration through my chakras — a definite buzz. Very interesting feeling. Regardless, it is all the same energy, just subtle… Read more »

there is only energy. for you to ‘feel it’ requires some degree of ‘slowdown’. the denser the energy condensation, the more ‘materialistic’ you experience it. The source of QI is ZERO POINT from which you dotn feel it in the body only its effects. So instead of thinking differnet types, it may be helpful to think of like ‘layers of subtlety’ =) hope that helps

Feel free to name it ANY way you like.

That’s the great thing about making up a religion…you get to make the rules
