After the last story I sent to this web site (Feeling Energy Inside Me) I have been reading about chakras from web-sites and have concluded that the energy I can feel is felt at my chakra points. By focusing on a place on my body I can bring a strong pleasant sensation to that area, with a central point being strongest, mostly in the first 4 chakras, ankles and knees.
After reading the posts from the last story I submitted I looked up chakras and found the 7 major points, then tried to focus on the throat, third eye and crown chakras with a little success there also. A couple responders to my story said they could feel energy in their hands and I tried and can do this a little also. Also in my feet it appears.
I have looked up a lot of sites for chakras and looked around for sites on energy and looked for books. There seems to be so much information out there on the chakras that it appears there is no end to it. Some sites talk about the 7 chakras and some about the 12 chakras and some about locations different from mine. I have gained some knowledge from "random reading" on sites and a little bit in a book I'm reading about clairvoyance and have done a few things with energy.
I have struggled a little with depression when out in the woods hunting for the last 10 or 15 years. It seems that it comes from missing certain people who are gone or certain times in my life. This year when it hit me while hunting I focused on my heart chakra and the depression was gone instantly. It worked again while driving around an old neighborhood. It was easy and made a big difference in my hunting this year. I spent more time in the woods than I have for quit a few years and enjoyed it much more.
I walked so much I ended up with a sore hip when I woke up one morning. I remembered reading about drawing earth energy through chakras in the feet to help strengthen the lower body. I pictured the lower half of my body filling with energy from the earth and my hip quit hurting. Each time it started to hurt I could stop it the same way for varying periods of time.
I would like to know more about chakras and energy but the amount of information I am running into is overwhelming and sometimes contradictory. If anyone could help me narrow down my search with information about books, web-sites or other sources and/or ideas or any comments I would be grateful. I would also like to understand more of what I'm doing with the energy and have had little success finding information explaining it, but a lot of information about chi, reiki, qui cong and other in depth things like that.
I really appreciate the comments and insight by the people who have posted comments on my stories. All comments are read more than once and appreciated. It has been helpful and I would like to thank everyone for your time and information.
