Re: Problems with Chakra
To clarify the question, where does your energy move when you are manipulating your phantom form or doing energy work?
I've always assumed that chakras are part of the human energy system, part of the interface with the human body. So kin should have them too. I don't know that for a fact, so it is possible you are just built differently. Or it's possible that something is blocking the flow of energy through these centers. On the other hand, not all cultures recognize chakras, at least not in exactly the same way. So part of it could be symbolic to begin with.
In the Chinese system, they talk about energy channels as much or more than energy centers. These would be the 'roads' that the energy uses to go from one part of the body to another. These go all over the body, some are big and some are small. The chakras just happen to line up along the biggest one, the central channel. There's also left and right channels on either side of your chest. There's also belts that cricle around. And hundreds or thousands of the little ones. Maybe it would be easier to try to feel these than the centers themselves.
Somtimes the roads get blocked though, which makes it so the energy can't get through. Trying to force a block to move can be painful. On the other hand, pain can give you an idea of where the block is located. So then you can back off and try to dissolve it gently, like with a water meditation. (Imagine that water is slowly melting the ice until it starts to flow again. It could take awhile or more than one try if it's really blocked.)
I don't really know what's causing the problem or even if it is a problem. So offering a solution is difficult.
