Once you have learned how to focus and direct energy through
your body, the most basic form of external energy manipulation is
the energy ball. Cup your hands slightly until you feel a build-up
of energy gather in your palm. It will have a barely perceptible
heft to it, and if you press your fingers around it, you will feel
a subtle tension before it begins to give.
This energy is malleable, like a very viscous fluid, and may be
handled and shaped as you would clay.
Bring your hands together, palms still cupped and slightly
parted, and form the energy into a ball. Feel its weight and the
tension it creates between your fingers. Mold it and shape it with
your hands. In this state, it can be thrown at a target or passed
from person to person. In general, anyone struck with such a
neutral ball of energy will feel something, though they may be
hard pressed to define what.
If you look at this collected energy as you would the aura, you
will find that it is perceptible as something misty or oily in the
space between your hands.
You may charge this energy with a specific emotion or
sensation. Simply concentrate on the energy in your hands and
concentrate on that emotion or sensation. Recall it so completely
that you actually experience it while focusing on the energy ball.
Direct the sensation to the energy in your hands. The energy will
then become infused with the emotion or sensation which you
Now, when you throw this energy ball at someone, they will
experience the sensation or emotion as you did. They may ignore it
or they may act upon what they suddenly feel. Sometimes, if the
sensation is strong enough, they may jump and instinctively look
over at you.
