How do you experience energy?

energy field photoI mentioned elsethread that I mostly get magical energy perception as musical/audio data, rather than other forms, and from comments there, it seems like that might be an interesting discussion, so here’s a place for it.

Some questions to get us started, but please expand into other directions!

1) Do you perceive energy (in the magical/ritual sense) in a particular way? Light? Colour? Texture? Sound? Air pressure? Something else?

2) When you’re trying to focus or harness energy to do something, what kinds of things work for you? Alternately, are there approaches that really don’t work for you?

3) Have you noticed similarities or differences when you’re doing other kinds of magical or ritual work? For example, deity-focused rituals, meditation, daily practices vs. group ritual practices, etc?
