Robert Bruce's New Energy Ways System

I happened to stumble upon this reference to one of Robert Bruce's interesting concept called the New Energy Ways System. Although I've only just started reading about it, it looks like it is based on eastern religious ways to move and sense energy in your body. Here's a quote:

"NEW [New Energy Ways] is a simple yet powerful method of directly simulating your energy body with your tactile senses - a true armchair system. It is easy to learn and to use. The majority of students move energy well and experience noticeable energy movement sensations during their first practice session. Energy movements are felt with a variety of predictable sensations, including warmth, tingling, heaviness, tightness, bone deep tickling and buzzing."

The thought behind this is to teach yourself how to sense energy paths first by direct stimulation of your hands and limbs and then by memory or sensation. Energy flow will then start to become something you can control. Here's an example exercise:

"Another demonstration exercise is to hold your hands out in front, palms facing, 12 inches apart. Imagine and 'feel' that you have a tennis ball sized globe of energy held in the right. Next, bounce this ball between your hands, without moving your hands. Imagine and 'feel' this ball bouncing from palm to palm. Keep doing this for half a minute, then extend the bounce action so the ball is passing 'through' your hands, several inches each side."

I think this most interesting aspect of this is the goal of accelerating your spiritual development. More can be found here: New Energy Ways System.
