J Breath

Started practicing the J breath and when I exhale but keep the drop to Dan Tien I get a vibration. The vibration is through the bones. The drop is still pretty weak. But, by holding onto Dan Tien point, I've been able to keep the energy going down much better than before. Apparently, this is my guess, all my singing (using my self taught technique) had really strengthened the solar plexus area of the diaphragm and it pulls everything there since the perineum is very weak by comparison. Also, the rest of the diaphragm is unbalanced.

Vibrating/shaky feeling

Today, while working with a patient, I was personally working on maintaining relaxation whole holding on to the 6 harmonies. First, this was more difficult. Lol. I was able to keep the shoulder/hip better than the elbow/knee. And the hand/foot just wasn't there in motion. It's been about thirty minutes since I ended the training and I've had a shakiness/vibrating feeling inside my body. I'm not overtly shaking not do I feel bad. What is this? Is it normal?

Base of the neck

As an ongoing student, I get the privilege to train using the methods that Sifu Kelley provides. I've been following the teaching on the pearls and core filling. Something that I've encountered is the realization of how much tension I have in my shoulders holding them up against gravity. Also, I've seen how I use the hydraulic pressure of the core to push up my crown from the front. The latter probably contributes to the former. As I let go of this in training, I get a taste of suspending the crown and dropping the shoulders.
