Energy Work & Others
I am unsure if magic is the appropriate section to put a question on energy work, but it didn't feel like supernatural abilities was the right place for it either.

I have read that when dealing with one's own personal energies (prahna, mana, chi, ki, ect...) a warming sensation occurs on the surface of where you are channeling, feeling, or gathering said energies (for instance on one's hands). Is this a universal sensation common to all people or does it vary with every individual, and could Other association alter the experience? I ask because when I do such energy work I feel the temperature drop, not rise, and sometimes this feeling will wash over my entire body. It is not disturbing, in fact it is quite calming. So I am curious on whether this is something others have experienced (kin or otherwise) and especially interested in whether other Shadows or Demons, who associate themselves with darkness, have experienced a similar occurrence.

Thank you for your time.

Re: Energy Work & Others
I think the sensations you feel are your brain's attempt to categorize what is happening in a way that it can understand. So it is commonly known that different people can feel it in different ways. Usually it's warmth or tingling, but there's no reason why it couldn't feel cold instead. I usually feel it inside my body, not so much on the surface, and sometimes it's heat, sometimes it's more electrical. It can even cause me to twitch if it's strong enough. Usually it feels good. Sometimes it can hurt, and sometimes both at once. It might not always do what you expect because everyone's system is different, not just because of kin type but because of life experience also.

Now for the typical word of warning that everyone ignores at some point...take it easy and don't force it, or it can mess you up.

Speaking as one who is messed up....but if I had it to do over again I'd ignore the warning too, so take it for what it's worth. Those chi blocks, angelic bonds, or whatever you want to call them, simply had to go. I couldn't breathe, but I'm still paying for it.

Not always, but shadow energy is typically cold to me.

Re: Energy Work & Others
Everyone perceives energy differently. I either feel it as hot/cold/some mix or a tingling. When it's my own energy I usually feel it as warm and sometimes tingly, the energy of others depends on the person. Can't say I've ever met a shadow in person so I can't tell you what shadow energy feels like to me.
