Damnedest thing, but last week, I felt really strange, but not unpleasant feelings right where my third chakra is supposed to be. That week, I was kind of playing around with exerting my will and not accepting what was given to me. Shaping the world on occasion, and not simply adapting to it.
Today, I've had feelings where my heart chakra. I find myself thinking a lot about causes and my hopes and all the stuff I don't like talking about that much, and even having a sense of optimism. Think of it! (Job security, finally, helps a lot, I"m sure.)
I'm not convinced that everything said about them is correct, but I think the chakras are real now, as locations of somatic sensations.
I mean, everyone feels emotions in their body, correct? (Provided they care to observe them) That's what the origin of the chakras is, though I'm not sure it means much more than that.
