Try making them in your dreams once... wow! I had the presence of mind to try this last night. I could see the energy between my hands, and when you aim/release it, the power is enormous. I was tearing buildings apart, entire city streets. More powerful than simply releasing my chi as I'd always done before, in almost a Ryu/Street Fighter fashion. I was gathering first... more akin to Samus in Smash Bros. okay, enough with the video game analogies. And I may have been gathering energy from the storm as well (another thread).
