I've recently been practicing some different things, as far as energy work goes, but I've been able to pull energy into my body and manipulate it. I've always been able to feel this, but only recently been able to manipulate it consciously. For instance, I can pull it into my body and ward off fatigue and illness very effectively. I've been able to heal myself several times faster than when not using it. I estimate about seven times faster, and that's with little effort.
I can also enhance my physical abilities considerably more. If I draw it in, concentrate it within my lower body and legs in particular, I can run much faster for longer. Same goes for upper body strength. I'm not sure what the exact limits are, as I haven't completed definitive tests just yet. In some instances, I've even increases my intelligence and analytical abilities. For instance, I use it while playing chess and my skills are noticeably improved, I can think ahead further, and usually catch very good attacks and defenses that I would've missed earlier.
I have also used this energy for telekinesis on two occasions, once with a pencil and once with a toothpick. Both times left me exhausted afterwards. I have even been able to cool things, such as coffee or soup in a trivial manner.
My question is: what exactly am I doing, and what can I do to improve it? I already meditate, and take in considerable amounts of energy there, but are there specific exercises I can do? Thanks for listening, and I appreciate any responses.
