It's Better to Feel Energy than See It

I keep trying to do the running energy exercise, but can't tell if it's making a difference. I visualize first the Mother energy coming up from Earth's core, then Spirit energy coming down. When I read the site material suggesting to do this, it feels like the truth, but when I do it, it feels like there's a gap in my ability to be sensitive enough to discriminate if it's making a difference, almost as if there's an injury or block at the chakras that are supposed to be able to sense this stuff. Lately I've been trying to release possible judgments I may have that I can't be sensitive enough, that I can't accurately sense God in case judgments like those are keeping such sensitivity away from me.

"It is of course very good work to release any negative judgments about your abilities to connect with the Mother and me, and for that matter about doing any of practices that can lead you to wholeness. There is another issue here besides judgments, however. It has to do with the difference between seeing the energy and feeling it. The 'etheric', or 'subtle' human energy is meant to be experienced as a felt sense rather than an exclusively visual experience. However, visualization can be very helpful in getting started with this practice.

"Most humans are unaware of their own subtle energy, this is why it's called 'subtle'. And although it may be subtle, it's not that mysterious. This is the same kind of energy that you experience when you feel into your body's sensations. You can also sense this energy in others, when you sense a person's 'vibes' or 'affect'. Subtle human energy has a wide range of sensation. On one end of the rage it can feel something like a very mild physical sensation, and on the other end, something that's not so subtle, like profound emotional energy.

"The key to experiencing and working with energy is to focus attention in the body. Visualization is a mental experience, and is useful only if it helps you feel into your subtle energy, which by the way includes sexual energy.

"Sexual energy is probably the most intense and therefore most obvious form of human energy. It's not exactly 'emotional', and it's not exactly 'physical' either. Yet it is energy almost everyone is aware of, and therefore can be used as a standard for sensing subtle energy in the other chakras. Sexual energy is of course primarily experienced or sensed in the lower part of the second chakra.

"Just below this center is the first chakra. Without it being triggered by an event, the easiest way to begin sensing first chakra energy is to flex the sphincter muscle around the anus. When you release the muscle, a slight tingling sensation is left. This mild sensation can be used as a perceptual doorway into deeper layers of sensation in the energy of your first chakra.

"The practice here would be to feel into the tingling and allow your awareness to stay focused, and then follow the sensations as they radiate away from the area of the muscle. This can bring your awareness to the next, even more 'subtle' layer of first chakra energy, and as your awareness continues to follow the energy, notice how it changes.

"The next step is to 'run' the energy by consciously intending to move it with your awareness and your breath. As you inhale, use your intention to draw the energy up to the next chakra, and bring your attention along with it, bathing the area with awareness. You can continue drawing the magnetic energy up the chakras in this manner.

"The main difference between seeing and feeling the energy is that in seeing it, you are getting it to follow your lead through visualization. In feeling or sensing the energy you are using your awareness to follow along with it, and then your intention to move it. The truth is that it's moving already, but your loving attention and focused awareness on its movement increases its quantity and improves its quality. It also brings your energy under your conscious domain and allows you to be parental to it.

"To begin sensing the energy in the other chakras it may be helpful to use a hand or finger to put pressure on the outside of your body in the area of the chakra. By first contacting the physical sensations associated with a chakra's energy, the other layers of sensation can begin to resolve in awareness.

"Although visualization is primarily a mental experience, running energy is not. It is primarily a feeling experience, but of a different kind than most humans have been aware. Since energy is fundamental to manifested existence, energy awareness is crucial to the healing work, and well worth the effort to develop."

As a related aside, I wish there could be a little channeled material on the hara line, etc. as discussed in Barbara Brennan's book Light Emerging. That material suggested a process for first connecting with Earth energy at the center of the Earth, and then Spirit energy from above. Her material said that when a person's hara line is lined up in this way, a "bridge" of sorts gets built, that a person then becomes aligned with their karmic purpose, and that the person can then access thousands of times more power.

"Yes, this is true. There has been much emphasis on the importance of the hara in Eastern metaphysics, and particularly in developing strong body presence. Since 'life purpose' and 'body purpose' are virtually the same, strengthening the hara can be quite helpful in realizing and fulfilling your original, karmic goals in this life. And hara awareness is an important part of energy awareness. However, your original life purpose can be realized and your karmic goals met without necessarily focusing on the hara or its energy.

"The practice of driving backward that I recommend in the four steps material is a much quicker, more efficient way to realize and complete your original life purpose. In fact, it can be done in the present moment, in the 'twinkling of an eye'. With your original life work or reason for being here accomplished, you are then free to take on a purpose you had not originally intended, at least not for this lifetime. You are free to take on the extraordinary life purpose of healing into wholeness."

When I read (about the Hara and life purpose) about 4 years ago, I felt the inner knowing sense that the assertions were true, and I've tried the Hara alignment process a number of times. Again, I usually feel afterwards a groping sense of inability to know how effective my visualizations of alignment have been. I'm thinking that the GodChannel suggested method maybe has the same effect on Hara line as the suggested Barbara Brennan material, and am wondering if this is so. Does doing the running energy exercises line up this bridge?

"Yes, it does. This is because running energy helps align the whole being, all of the various subtle bodies and the physical body. There will be more material on this in both the healing class and the channeling class."

Do some people have to do the running energy exercises more than 30 times before they begin to become sensitive enough to discriminate the resultant shifts in energy? As the 8 year old in me would say, "Am I doing this right?"

"A very good question, and thank you for asking it. No, focusing only on the visual aspects of the energy is not enough to get it running as intended. The energy must be felt, visualizing it is meant only to help get you started.

"However, the problem hasn't been with your practice as much it's been with the original description of the exercise in the channeling class. I've asked the channelers to revise some of that language, and the revised versions of the running energy exercise and the running energy script are now posted. I recommend that you experiment with these new understandings about feeling rather than seeing the energy, and I apologize for this not being made more clear in the beginning."
