I actually started experimenting with my own energy system a few weeks ago.
I've been attending a monthly dance circle which puts me into a natural trance as it focuses on individual chakras each month.
The last one was focused on the solar plexus. Anyway - after this particular session I started to feel my energy system begin to change or my perception of my energy system change somewhat considerably.
I felt drawn to do some energy meditations to change, upgrade or perhaps I was simply 're-percieving' my energy system.
Consequently from this experiment I no longer perceive myself with a root chakra, throat chakra or third eye chakra.
Instead I sense myself to have much larger and slower moving balls of energy over my navel, my heart and my head. They are all the same colour and they don't seem to require balancing. They just seem to generate lots of sustainable energy.
It feels as though my chakra system before needed constant tweaking where as this system is like a perpetually self sustaining system.
It naturally encourages me to want to maintain balance in mind, body and spirit.
I read this interesting article on elephant journal that you might enjoy:
It talks about perception and translation of energy according to external influences and internal influences.
I don't feel that my experimenting is in any way wrong or dangerous. In fact I have been feeling quite peaceful and protected, in fact I am feeling much more connected then I have since I was a young kid when I had no concept of ckakras.
I think it's cool, and like any experiment, I'm discovering new things.
