What good is a living good if he can’t throw down a decent Kamehameha blast now and then? I’m working on it. Still in the early stages, but I thought I’d present the approach I’m taking.
The reason this is in Soul Travel is because perceptual scaling is an effective means of travel. So lets scale downwards. Instead jumping around the multiverse like a tourist, the focus will be on traveling around your immediate environment. Seems to me there’s a lot more practical applications to this.
My weapon of choice is always focused attention. My aim is to compress that attention into something dense enough to bludgeon someone with. I did something once out of desperation while locked in dream combat on night, against someone who’s ass I was dead set on kicking. I became a spike of energy and went at them with literally everything I had. I put all of myself into that attack, and it was super effective. This is what I’m aiming to recreate.
I’m basing this on the exercise of moving awareness through out your body. You focus your attention on a part of your body, and become aware of… something you weren’t aware of before. I plan to build on this until I can move that sensation not only around my body, but project it outside of my body with enough force to blast apart rocks.
When focusing on moving awareness through your body, you can focus on a small area, or you can focus on a larger general area (again with the scaling!). I’ve been trying to condense as much large scale focus into a single point on my body as I can possibly manage.
The increases in power are noticeable through the accompanying physical sensations they produce. From twitches to spasms all the way into what I assume is the more unpleasant spectrum of “the vibrations”. All localized to the area I’m currently focused on, which I can move around at will.
One thing I’ve noticed is when you “increase your power level”, it’s self sustaining. It doesn’t requires constant effort to maintain that level of… whatever it is you’ve got going on there.
I want to be able to move this concentration with enough force to strike. Now maybe it’s just me, but I’m finding I have to learn to handle the higher power levels. Just because I can zip my awareness around quickly at low starting levels doesn’t mean I can do so with higher levels. I can eventually, but I have to learn to handle it first. Need more practice.
Moving outside the self
Getting a good feel for on or even in your body is pretty easy. Outside of it, not so much. A static location like the crown chakra isn’t so bad, but personally I’m finding very difficult to get the same ease of movement on the outside as I do on the inside.
I’m also having trouble with “push” attacks, like the classic Kamehameha. Having trouble getting anything out that way with the oomph of a punch. *EDIT: Actually, imagining a drawn bow seems to be working pretty good.
So far, I’ve had the best success picking a certain point on my body and pushing out from there. I don’t know if the crown chakra actually exists, but the idea of a crown chakra makes it an easy “go to” location.
After some messing around, I had some decent success using a whipping motion launching from the middle of my forehead. It allows me to get out a decent distance, with a good amount of force, and remains pretty stable for the required duration.
I tend to think my success with the whip technique is that is uses momentum, which is an effective tool for moving awareness. Going out on a limb here, but if you pal around any type of entities, think of all the times you’ve been thrown, tossed, tumbled, pulled into. Those forced transitions all use momentum. For that reason I think Krillin’s spinning disk attack has some serious potential.
I’ve been practicing this while in a pretty decent meditative state, but obviously I’d like to be able to do this at will anytime. My preliminary attempts have been like someone picking up a game controller for the first time. I keep trying to make they whipping with my eyes or by moving my head.
Still working on this part . Need more practice.
In a nutshell, short distance soul travel with some punch.
