Yes, I agree that rooting is energetically significant.

Its easier to feel the gates in the hands (laogong) and top of the head (baihui). In my experience it is more challenging to have a strong physical experience of the lower gates (yongquan).

After a couple of years of disciplined standing post my yong quan cavities opened. I wasn't sure what was going on so I called Rami Rones. He said "Good--you're making progress. Now shut up about it and get back to standing." Damn good advice.

the body comes from the earth.so your using earth energy which presumably is huge, for correcting your body.can you draw up energy?etc

what if you rooted to the centre of the earth..

if there are energy centre/spirits etc are you communicating..ie when rooting your looking/feeling/sensing under the earth

Ideas/thoughts of that nature...
