Any kind of new experience is good. Its learning, its bombarding your perception with new ideas, new feelings etc.
You feeling that probably shows you that its open. I've read from different sources that the feelings can be strong at first if its your first time
really exploring that chakra. For instance, I thought I knew were my sacral and solar plexus was for 2 years until I did some qi gong and felt like a
powerful electrical burst in my navel, followed with some bubbling feeling below the navel. And thats when I read it to that thing about feeling
strong sensations when the chakras are first really bursting open. They are all very subtle now but.. hmm.. its sublte in a different way, but i
deffinately know they are there, and unfortunately know too well when they are off, as it comes with some powerful feelings both physical and
energetic, so much that I'm really trying to work on some good shielding techniques. You may have experienced some discomfort around people, well..
next time you feel that you can assess where that discomfort is comming from, and ask yourself why.
I learned that alot of what I thought I was feeling I was just picking up from others. For instance, an emotion like anger is so strong in the air and
thick that you could cut it with a knife so to speak.. a discomforting vibe to be around.. but again, if you weren't aware that it was from someone
else, you may be picking it up as if it were your own.
It sounds complicated but its not. Think of yourself like a fish, travelling in a school of fish,, they move, you move with them, feeding off each
others "vibes" for directions, exchange etc. You'll experience it all soon enough and you can ask someone then, or do some reading, or just go
with your intuition as to what you think is happening, what it is your feeling / experiencing.
Another one you may have noticed, I find this one is another profound one.. a big burning, drilling sensation in the top of your head. Opening of the
Anyways, its all very basic stuff but i think its more of a matter of understanding how basic it is, and what affects what. You feel things deeper,
and stronger, and your life's experience deepens with it. The more you make a habit of trying to feel these things, work with them, the more you'll
be able to feel them. Its confusing though for sure until you start to see the effects of it. Take for example... standing with your hands to your
side. Put your attention to your hands, they might begin to tingle. Now with your finger from your other hand, move it slowly up the tingling hand...
now remember that feeling of your finger running up your hand... now.. with just your tingling hand, feel the path the other finger made across it...
just like imagine your moving a point of feeling / awareness up and down your fingers and hands etc.. and work to make it go up and down your arms and
all through your body.
I realized I was actually doing something with these imaginary circuits when the tingling sensations spread and got deeper, as well as it really
helped with meditation and unlocked some neat little tricks, nothing huge to me really, but enough to show that i was deffinately moving SOMETHING
around my body with this seemingly just imaginary feeling.
So, in the same principle..try and feel your chakras. I found after almost 4 years that there was a very simple way for me feel and regulate them.
I remember when I first started meditating, I would come out of a deep trance with this liquidy feeling in my brow chakra.. it was like my head was
swimming, and i just wanted to lay down and float with it. I think that may have been because the energy was blocked because I don't feel it like I
did back then. I feel more balanced. The only kind of real head swimming I get now is when I drink coffee and such. You begin to really see how it
This like expanding awareness thing seems like.. increasing your sense of soberness, and when its a little off, you really notice it.
Working on the chakras feels like getting really sharp senses and finding some peace and function amongst a storm of scattered thoughts, insecurites,
limitations and useless things bogging up your state of being.
Liberating to say the least. Happy chakra-ing.
