I did not insinuate that it could not be scientifically explained, only that you were wrong in that it is only scientific.

If it is purely scientific then could you please explain to me how it is that I have affected others with it, have benefited from a continual practice of using it and there are results that are not scientifically explainable.

I apologize for attacking you as I did. Nothing personal I am just fed up with people taking position on subjects that they obviously have no experience in and touting their belief as gospel.

If you had the opportunity to experience a small fraction of what I have and had seen the results for yourself, you just might believe as I do, that science has not scratched the surface in regards to where life and consciousness begins and ends and therefore have no right to deny the experiences of others because it does not fit in to the theory.

Science says the psychological effect and sensation is a result of mental stimulation. I contend that it is merely a measurable result of spiritual activity and at that is just the beginning of a path that science can not even determine how to study, and therefore write it of since it does not fit.

So you have studies and an education that tell you its physical, I have a life that says its not. I don’t care how science refutes it, you wont convince me its not real and effective.

People call it different things, ki, chi, qi, chakra, spirit force, bioelectricity, but I dont buy into things people tell me I only go with what I know. And I know that the body is a giant battery, flowing with electrical pulse. If you attach electrodes to the different part of the brain and electrify it you get a different sensation.

Fair enough, and I agree.

Nothing spiritual there, our nervous impulse does this when it is activated, and an 'artificial' source will have the identical effect. If you have good control over your body I do not doubt of the psychological possibilities.

Being a psychologist I will tell you the human mind and its power is far more fascinating than telling you 'spirit did it' and such but people will believe what they find best.

So I have two questions for you.

A) Why do people who work within systems that move these bio-electric energies through the body have profound spiritual experiences which they otherwise would not have?

B) Do you believe that meditating on these energy centers and moving them, despite their physiological nature, produces positive effects in many individuals with marked psychological improvements on their ability to cope with life, their outlook on life, their attitude, etc...?

No worries, its the internet intention is not usually clear and I can see why you may be frustrated, how you take what I say, but I mean no harm. I understand some people will hold things dearly and I do not mean to offend if I did. I have had 'spiritual' experiences and things that were overwhelmingly magnificent (love?) but I know they are merely feelings, having been cheated on, because with enough time you will feel the same for someone else, and realise it is not the individual but rather the feeling that you love. Kind of complicated.

I do not think science 'diminishes' importance, only your experience is what matters, if it had impact on you, no one saying it is nonsense or other will stop what you felt. It is just a means to understand.

So basically I mean, the experience you get is ineffable, the cause is simple. Thats what I think. (and believe me I have 'healed' people too but I do not think it is healing, just calming their mind and making feel good! The mind is powerful!)

You get whatever you want as well as a little of what your expectations are. Like they say, you CHOOSE to have a miserable day, or to make the best of a bad situation.
On top of that body chemicals are miraculous, they can give you the impression of being super strong, not feel pain, even dream like quality. Given my jobs I have got the opportunity to study PCP and other drugs and they are fascinating, these substances often give the same experience/ability meditation and 'spirituality' does. So it makes one think.

B) Do you believe that meditating on these energy centers and moving them, despite their physiological nature, produces positive effects in many individuals with marked psychological improvements on their ability to cope with life, their outlook on life, their attitude, etc...?

Of course! As I say you get what you put into it. If you expect a positive outcome it will be. If you convince yourself something will not work you have a good chance of failing.

I dont mind people teaching others techniques to focus/relax/create positive emotions. I just have the problem with people convincing others they have magic powers, and charging $700 for it!!

I can also do this, in fact I'm doing it right now. lol I've always wondered what it was, so it's interesting knowing this happens to others as well. I don't know if it has anything to do with the third eye, concentration, or whatever though.

I get this feeling constantly. It is usually always present in some form or another. It is also present whenever something is moving towards or away from my face. Its more of a buzzing neutral feeling, but its not a negative feeling, just an interesting tingling sensation.

I have this same experience. I get tingling, often it turns into pressure so intense it's all I can focus on. It feels like a knife is being pushed into my forehead between my eyes... that kind of pressure without the pain. It's not always stagnant though. Sometimes it shifts around in a way that reminds me of the pressure I felt when my baby would turn and shift in my stomach. When its just a simple tingling sensation it's actually kind of pleasant. These sensations sometimes seem to "bleed" into my right eye.

It all started 10 years ago, when I was 20. I had a dream that was a "looping" dream, the only one I've ever experienced like it. That was so remarkable I'll take the time to explain it a little more. I fell asleep in my bed. Next I heard this loud buzzing sound & sat up in my bed, awakened by it. I opened my eyes and realized my entire house was glowing blue. I freaked out... then quickly sat up in my bed again and realized I'd now truly awoken. The blue light and the buzzing were gone, and the last time I sat up in bed I figured was a dream. I went back to sleep, and it happened again. A loud buzzing wakes me, and I sit up to see my room glowing blue. I went to call the police about the blue light and the sound. Then again I sat up in bed after waking abruptly, and the light and sound were gone.

The 3rd time this happened though, the buzzing sound was still in my house after I awoke. The blue light was gone but it still sounded like a million bees were swarming outside my windows. This initial event seemed to be some sort of springboard for other strange events, including the one leading to the pressure I frequently get in my head. I still often hear the buzzing sound when I go into buildings, ever since I had that looping dream. Most often I hear it in my own home. I know it's not a downed nearby power line or anything like that. It's a loud buzzing but the way I always hear it reminds me of putting a conch shell up to my ear.

Back to the tingling sensation... A few weeks after the "looping" dream I was heading to sleep in my room, where my 2 dogs are already asleep. I get comfortable and suddenly... and I mean out of absolute nowhere... I can see a huge ball of light hovering over me through my closed eyelids (you know how you can sense light even though your eyes are closed). I was too afraid to actually open my eyes, and just laid there motionless. Then it felt like the ball was trying to push itself into my body through some type of opening between my eyes. The ball now looked like a spider or octopus. It had a pulsating energy core with little arms of electricity issuing from it. Somehow I could see this form, even though it felt like it was sitting above my eyes now. I got the notion to just get up and run, but then decided to just lay there, figuring it would just come back again if I didn't let it do whatever it came to do. Not that I had any previous experience with errant energy balls, or any other paranormal thingamy-doo for that matter.

After laying motionless a few seconds, I felt the light ball shoot into the rest of my body through the forehead "opening". Immediately I realized I could no longer feel my back touching the floor, then my body started convulsing heavily. After a few seconds this stopped. I laid there a bit and then opened my eyes. I first looked around to see if my dogs had at all noticed what had happened. My larger dog was having convulsions (she never had before). The smaller dog was just laying there, asleep.

I've yet to come across a satisfactory explanation for these experiences. Not that I go around mentioning this to people willy-nilly. It does bothers me that it seemed to happen out of the blue. It's not like I was doing anything different than any other ordinary person when this happened. I wasn't even dieting.

The pressure in my head is really annoying when I'm trying to talk to people. It's hard to ignore sensations you feel in your face.

Oh, this thread brings back memories. Wondering about the same things. I understand all of the points of view.

When I was a kid, I figured out some of these points of view.

"Why does it feel less tingly in my head at this point when I know this is here?"

"How come there is no funny feeling in the spot where my friend poked me?"

I registered I could feel something , but did not know what to do or if it was important. Oh well, back to being a kid outside!

Yeah, don`t wory about it, it`s just your 3rd eye chakra.

When I started meditating I was expecting it, but realised I`d been experiencing it for years before I knew what it was and it used to freak me out a bit, but now I`m used to it.

Try meditating and opening the other chakras, you`ll notice the same sensation in your navel, solar plexus, heart, throat (though I have trouble with that one) third eye, and with perseverance, your crown.
Iv`e personally not been able to activate my root chakra, but I read not to do this straight away.

Have a look at this to familiarise yourself with the positioning of the chakras.

I know you're reply is likely to the OP. To respond about my situation I've been told before that my 3rd eye was just opening when I was 20. I didn't have any sensation in the forehead until that night I saw the ball of light in my room. A lot of strange things happened along with that incident though. Once after that, maybe a few weeks later, I woke up and was literally on the ceiling in my room. Meaning my nose was touching the ceiling and I couldn't feel my back on the bed. Other strange things happened. I could leave the front door of my house open and my dogs wouldn't run out. Normally they'd be down the street in a half second. This was 10 years ago so I'm sure there's more I just don't remember. I do recall there was a lot of other strange animal behavior in my dogs. I have no way of knowing if they could hear the buzzing going on in the house or not. But they began acting skittish and would sometimes just start trembling.

I rarely hear the buzzing now, but when I do hear it it's very clear. I've talked to a few other people who've told me that they hear it too sometimes... I know they're hearing the same thing by the way they describe it. It's unlike any other buzzing sound I've heard before. The pressure in my forehead is ever-present. I often feel a strong tingling sensation in my hands along with it. Rarely now... maybe once a year I feel like a massive weight has been set on top of me while I'm laying down. Like something heavy is laying on top of me, covering my entire body. It lifts after about 30 seconds. I haven't a clue what any of this is about.

If it's just the 3rd eye chakra I think my 3rd eye chakra is on steroids.

Great post. I felt this tingling in the center of my forehead after I attended a Tibetan monk giving a lecture on the dharma -- a transmission. I listened with great focus, got home, at first thought I had a headache, but then realized it was exactly in the center of my forehead and was more than that.

Now I can flex the center of my skull -- the pineal gland -- at will. So the third eye is NOT the center of the forehead -- the third eye is the pineal gland.

I took classes from Chunyi Lin, qigong master, who heals patients from the top hospital in the world, the Mayo Clinic. -- go take his class or get a phone healing or practice his self-learning course. You can get just the Level 1 sitting meditation c.d. for only $10 -- which will guide you through to open up the real third eye.

All the best,

Let me start of by saying that I am 19 years old and that as long as I remember I have been able to feel (or cause) a tingling/tickling sensation in my forehead. A long time ago, I would only feel it when there was an object close to my head (such as a pencil or something). Now however, I believe that this sensation had something more to do with my focus being concentrated to that particular area as I can now summon (for lack of a better word) the same sensation without any assistance and push it further down my body (approximately to the top of my neck). Has anyone ever heard of anything similar to this? I'm not necessarily looking for some kind of paranormal off the wall explanation (actually the more normal the explanation, the better), but i'm at a loss as to what it could be.

Same thing happens, at one point I could sense/feel the presence of a living person behind a wall but now it's just the tickling sensation and the sensing of objects in extremely close proximity to the forehead about 1-2 cm or so from the skin surface.
