How-To: Sensing Energy
A lot of the newbies I’ve talked to are so hung up on seeing energy. They have had results, just not results they could see with their eyes. I’d say that 95% of the time
, I perceive energy either by feeling it or by using my “6th sense”. Some individuals with the natural talent of seeing auras may be able to pick up visuals easier than others.
The first step to perceiving energy, is to learn to feel it. After you start feeling it, you develop your 6th sense naturally and, in time, that’s all you’ll use. You just gotta open yourself up and be open to it. Try visualizing energy beaming into parts of your body and see if you can feel something there. This stuff gets easier, you just have to trust yourself and practice.
Here are some ways we use to describe how these energies feel to us that might help you increase your awareness of them. They may be sensed with the hand or all over the body
- Buzzing or tingling, like when your leg is asleep.
- Prickly, like static electricity.
- A feeling of heat without a heat source. (Usually denotes a LOT of energy moving.)
- A feeling of cold without a physical source.
- A sense of a rising or falling pitch without any audible sound.
- A feeling of something flowing through you like wind or a stream or current of warm water.
- A feeling like a wave passing through you.
- A sense that some other Being, like an angel or ghost has stepped inside of you (“incorporation”)
- Pressure or a pushing sensation with nothing touching you.
- A pulsing sensation that is not in time with your heartbeat. (Usually a balancing “Healing Pulse”.)
- A sensation of bubbles rising like carbonated water or Alka-Seltzer.
- A “clanging” sensation like striking a piece of metal held in your hand with a hammer.
- A spinning or whirling sensation.
- A fluttering or shimmering sensation.
- A sensation like a change in altitude or barometric pressure.
- A sense of lightness that wasn’t present before.
- A sense of expansion in some way.
- A shift in consciousness like meditation or falling asleep.
- A sudden sigh or yawn. (Denotes that you are getting relieved of something by what you came into contact with.)
