A method where you can feel Qi for yourself, using a method called ‘Prayer Hands Qigong’.
This involves a number of symmetric moves with your hands held with their palms facing each other; and fingertips pointed up.
Prayer Hands can be used for feeling and adjusting for just before a Tai Chi Press, or Reeling Silk done horizontally). This sensitivity is also use to detect an opponent's intentions in Push Hands.
When I demonstrate ‘Prayer Hands Qigong’ to people in person; all feel some effects.
PRAYER HANDS CHI SAU
Place hands, with arms extended, in front of your Middle Dan Tien, palms facing inward, fingertips pointing up, then:
Move your palms 2-4 inches apart, adjusting according to feel.
This is analogous to setting the gap in a spark plug, or ignition point; and do the following exercises:
Pay close attention to the feeling between your hands. I suspect that then sensations might have something to do with one Qi’s properties; magnetic resonance.
After getting energy, one can do Qigong, Tai Chi, Hsing-i or healing. When done, make sure to put palms back together, and then sink into ground exhaling, rebounding with a push up inhaling. This is a bow that connnects to the Earth Qi.

One can also feel non-touching effects when holding magnets that are charged with the same pole. Although this is not Qi; it gives one a similar feel.
Newly published Qigong book Axe Hand; Hsing-i & Internal Strength Workout, shows Tai Chi old super short form (only 5 moves), moving and standing forms of Embrace the Moon (Standing Pole, Hold the Ball, Hug the Tree), as well as Prayer Hands Qigong for feeling Qi yourself. Moving forms help you adjust your own Qi by testing it.
This book has in depth step by step instruction with photos of fixed and moving Qigong Tai Chi and Hsing Yi;
Stance is fundamental in feeling Qi and in connecting to the Earth Qi. Stance traing is the foundation of centering and connecting to power.

Qigong is a kind of frequency energy, which can be affected by the strong magnetic field and stored in the human body and released by it. When we are doing the basic exercise of qigong (e. g. cycle movements with hands in front of the abdomen), we are using the blood in the hands, the blood cells in the blood and the magnetic matters in the blood cells to crosscut the magnetic line of force of the globe.
As a result, there produces the direct current and magnetic field when the frequency of the cycle movement is 0.3-0.7 Hz, and a numb feeling appears in the hands. This kind of qi sensation is neither electric current because the feeling will disappear when the cycle movements are accelerated and the frequency is over 0.7 Hz, nor magnetic field because when the hands are placed between two pieces of strong magnet, no such feeling occurs.
The author thinks that it is a feeling caused by the magnetic resonance. There is a coincidence between the qigong phenomenon and the mechanism of the magnetic resonance when one is practicing the basic exercise of qigong. A human magnetic field with an appropriate frequency is produced, which can cause the water in one's hand to have nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). The 1H and 3C are orderlessly arranged in the body, but after the qigong exercise through the auto magnetization, a magnetization state (ARROWS Here) appears. At this moment if there is an energy coming from outside, the frequency of which is correspondent to the formula of nuclear magnetic resonance: n = rHo/2p
the magnetized water may absorb the energy and there occurs the magnetic resonance state.
n is the frequency,
Ho is the intensity of the external magnetic field,
g (rotatory magnetization) and
2p are constant. The weaker the magnetic field is, the lower frequency needed.
Water and organic compounds are considered as the media for the magnetic resonance force, flowing in the body. The two- hands may guide its traveling course because in the qigong exercise the magnetic resonance first occurs in the hands; it can also flow from the place where the strongest energy stores to the place where the weakest energy stores. The disabled, weak, diseased and aging organs would absorb the energy passing through them and get rehabilitated.
What is Qi?

In general, energy of infrasonic wave band is emitted to treat patients in the qigong therapy. It can cause the magnetic resonance of the water and protein in the body. Patients tend to absorb the energy emitted from others.
A slight hot sensation of the patients can be confirmed by an infrared thermograph and far-infrare detector. But this is the secondary energy generated by concomitance, because man-made temperature increase cannot bring the curative effect of qigong.
The energy of magnetic- resonance may be originated from the magnetic resonance elements of the cells-- 1H, 13C, 15N, 31P, etc. ... Various peak spectrum diagrams of the infrasonic wave band are seen when the qigong masters are emitting their qi since they practice different patterns of qigong exercises and there is differed intensity of magnetic fields. It explains the curative effect to different organs.

From the above analysis we can say that there is a third energy other than food and air for the human beings. The qigong masters are able to absorb the infrasonic energy of low frequency and emit high frequency energy.
The theory of human magnetic resonance not only explains the fundamental phenomena of qigong, but also moving objects by qigong meridian traveling course and the Bermuda mystery. Some of the manifestations present in the qigong exercise should be expounded not only by the magnetic resonance, but by the magnetic induction capacity, superfluity and rearrangement of crystals.
The research of the human science in future will stress the following aspects:
1. Treating diseases by frequency;
2. Training qigong pupils with the super conductible magnetic field;
3. Training the peculiar function with the reverse magnetic pole;
4. Developing qigong instruments based on the mechanism of the magnetic resonance;
5. Doing away with superstitions with the mechanism of qigong;
6. Exploring the wisdom of the outer space creatures according to the religious legends: but the task of top priority at present is to standardize the qigong teachers and offer regular course of qigong.’

Prayer Hands Qigong is also explained on Qigong Masters Radio show of May 05, 2011. I explained this impromptu, and blind; and the host Lama Tantrapa felt it. I am not sure how many of the average 40,000 listeners also felt it.
Past shows can be downloaded for free. It includes the world-class experts, such as Yang Jwing-Ming, Al Dacascos, Mantak Chia, Erle Montaigue, and other well-known Qigong masters.
