Strange self-induced feeling

Recommended Posts

I know I’m late on this. I can’t remeber how old I was when I first discovered that I can do this; I don’t know what it is or what I’m doing.

 

I’m able to induce some sort of strange feeling  in the core. Kind of like.. having butterflies? The longer I force it my body sometimes jerks and/shivers and I have to catch my breath

It amazes me how many people think this entirely natural phenomenon is somehow strange. All of y’all are normal. Chillax.

Im 23 year old male, and I had the same feeling/ability since I was a kid, I can relate to most of the feelings described in this thread, for me its feels like clenching a muscle in the base of the spine I can also deel it in the back of my head, it gets pretty uncomfortable the longer I hold it. The most noticeable feeling after doing it multiple times in a row is body heat I feel warmer to the point where I sometimes start sweating but just a little bit. Im actually interested if females do expirience the same feeling or its exclusive to males. I juste signed up in this forum, I wish you all the happiness in the world.

Moderator Note

There have been a lot of assertions that the phenomenon described in this thread is somewhat unusual. As they all have been very speculative the thread is moved. Going forward I request that folks put a bit more thought and reading into it and contrast it with related effects, e.g. due to meditation/yoga/exercise/whatnot before claiming strange superpowers. See the sticky in the thread for general guidelines.

I knew there had to be others with the same ????

Been able to do this for 25+ yrs.  The search for this online has been exhausting.  I'm glad you guys made the effort to be found.

For me, it's nothing like tingling goose bumps and hair standing up.  

As a kid I named it "Negative motion".  Whatever that meant to me then!  I guess because it feels like expending energy yet remaining still.

I can induce it at will.

Approximately 0.1 sec ramping from min. to max 'amplitude".  Can increase it very slowly as well.

At termination the sensation dissipates in approximately 1-2 sec. 

I can maintain it, seemingly, indefinitely at less than max.  Quite mentally tiring at max.

Mentally exhausting in proportion to duration and/or magnitude.

Heart rate increases slightly and briefly at start but returns to normal when reach "constant amplitude".

Initial surge of the sensation, then the sensation feels like a current maintained by voltage.

Can select individual arms/legs.  Upper or lower torso or both, front or back.  Head.  

Can smoothly and slowly transition to different areas or quickly switch.

If I don't focus consistently some muscle twitching occurs.

Can modulate frequency and or amplitude.

Damn.  All this and it's probably useless.

Would like to see if an EKG might detect it.  Lie detector?  Current or induced electro-magnetic field?

I wonder if the sensation is actually peripheral.  Maybe it's at the brain/nerves interface or deeper in the brain.

Same thing here. Are there any other threads or info on this sensation or is this the only one? Seems like a surge in interest on this topic over the last year.

The strange feeling I get is generated by the number of first time posters in this thread who have joined simply to add legitimacy to the other first time posters. It's amazing that this many people have a strange self-induced feeling that drew them to this site for some reason.

Wow i know this,been wondering what it is..i had to sign up to reply.been looking for explanation to this like forever! So the weird thing or rather strange is that i knew about this feeling in a dream about 10 years ago (am 25) and i was evading a creature so my point of escape was through a wall a big wall so i wasnt left with any option all i had to do was crash into the wall and as i was doing that i naturally (in the dream state) felt the tingling feeling sort of came from inside my rib cage and felt abit weird but managed to somehow bypass the wall without crashing it into pieces...when i walk up i was like 'huh!' How was that possible...but dint mind much on that so after a couple days i had another dream and that time i think i was having a lucid dream because i could recall bypassing a wall from the other dream while in this dream (dont know how this is possible) then i tried to go through a wall and very VERY surprisingly i generated the feeling as i was walking through the wall and succeeded.i felt so amazed:P.but the shocking thing is that when i tried to walk through the wall again without making the feeling i could not pass it!!.so guys when i walk up i dint know how i did it but i was able to generate the feeling while awake i was so excited and thought i cud pass through the wall while i generated the feeling but to my disappointment i it failed.i actually thought i cud pass the wall because that feeling was so strange..(dummy me :D)...so from that day i was able to do it upto now and once tried to explain to someone and all cud get was a sloppy stare to my face.ooh and i was forgetting,upto to this day i am able  to do it almost in any lucid dream that i get and i recall one time generating the feel with an intention to go invisible to people in the dream and it worked!.....and another thing i get this feeling when i get sleep paralysis,it feels negative than when i do it intentionally  i dont know why.this feeling is realy hard to explain to someone but i just think the best way is to tell someone to fake being afraid assuming u have just seen something straight  from your worst nightmare....i think its a natural way the brain react to things cause i learnt it in a DREAM and i never knew this before until i dreamt  and naturally generated  the feeling without thinking to pass that wall (magically)...its amazing how God made us isn't it?

I've just signed up so I can join in and say I know EXACTLY what you guys are on about. I'm nearly 40 and I've done this all my life. I just Googled "how do I make my stomach and legs feel funny with my mind!?" and couldn't believe it actually worked and lead me here! :-D

I have been able to do this as long as I can remember. I would describe it as the feeling you get falling from a roller coaster in your stomach or legs except I can make it more or less intense and hold as long as I want and when its intense its like the roaster coaster X 10. The other thing that happens to me is that if something is about to touch my skin, especially right between my eyes and lower forehead, the skin feels very very tingly and when I perceive the object to almost be touching it will get intensely tingly and I can also control that feeling too but harder to get unless I stick something near my forehead -- not as easy as the legs.

From reading some of the posts here, it seems this isn't all that uncommon. But I have always wondered if this is some sort of super power and how to or if it is possible to harness it in some positive way for my life. So far I just use it to feel like I'm on a roller coaster ride when I am bored sitting on my couch. 

What do people do with this skill?

Yeah I can also do this feeling but only in my hands and legs. Its pretty freaky. I think its just making blood flow faster in the concentrated area
