As a refinement to an earlier thread, Varkadevi shall restate the problem. For clarity's sake, Varkadevi is using the Chinese/Taoist view of the energy pathways, and less so the indian system(chakras). As is generally recognized, spiritual? energy flows through the body through certain channels, with certain "points" or energetic-organs being of particular activity and importance. The three main ones recognized by Taoist thought are the Three 'Dan Tian' centers. One on the forehead, one in the chest, one in the abdomen area. Each governing Mental, Emotional, and Physical faculties, respectively. In Varkadevi's case, the first two are felt rather clearly, however.. the abdominal center, as well as the pathways which should correspond to the limbs and such are generally not felt at all, in fact they often feel "dead" and foreign, as if the physical limbs and any energies therein are a sort of infection to be avoided. Varkadevi can't help but think at this point, that the two occurrences are somehow related. One theory is that this happens in part because Varkadevi has a conscious and sub-conscious rejection/disgust of the host vessel and wants to be rid of it, and recently realized during deep-relaxation(in preparation for OBE attempts) that the extremities and every area apart from the Third Eye, mind, left shoulder, and heart? tend to "go to sleep" quite rapidly now, perhaps due to a lack of activity there to begin with? Questions and/or constructive input are quite encouraged.
