I haven't been able to sleep properly for a long time, I mentioned this to a friend of mine and he suggested meditation. He also said that I would probably "feel" my energy pooling somewhere on my body, most likely my chest.
I tried it that night but it didn't work the first time around but I found I could feel the energy a few days after. What happened was, I was concentrating very hard on moving the energy to my hands (I had been able to feel the pool of energy for a few days) and was trying to make it flow through my arms and down to my hands, but nothing was happening, so I relaxed a bit and didn't concentrate as hard and it happened.
I felt a tingling sensation as though my entire left arm was falling asleep, but my hand also felt quite hot. It startled me and I lost my concentration and it was gone, just like that. I've been trying to restart the flow of energy ever since but have been unable to.
I've tried many types of meditation, and I can get myself into a deep meditative state, but unfortunately it stops there. Are there any techniques that could help me out? I'm currently researching online for some help and have found a site that has e-books that you can use for reference.
My brother and I have another problem, and that specific problem is that we have too much energy which causes us to be sometimes very hot to the touch and for me, it can get very uncomfortable, which is what led me to my research in the first place.
