I sometimes get this weird sensation in my chest that’s really nice, but I have no idea what it is. Any ideas?

I kind of have a hard time explaining this, especially since I really don’t believe in anything that isn’t clearly real, particularly new age stuff. That said, I sometimes get this sensation that more closely resembles an “open heart chakra” than anything else I know of. I got this feeling for the first time (that I know of) when I was five and a friend was braiding my hair. I have since gotten it while listening to presentations, at the doctor’s office, and talking to friends. The common thread between these things seems to be allowing another person to either talk a lot about something they know a lot about, or watching them do something they’re really good at. Physical contact is not required.

In terms of describing the feeling… it feels kind of like a fuzzy warm energy in my chest, which then sort of emanates in what feel like sparkly ribbons to other parts of my body. Eighteen years of trying, and that is the best description I can come up with.

While there is no better feeling in the world than the feeling I just described, I feel really stupid about the whole thing because it sounds like a bunch of mumbo-jumbo and I’d really just like to know what exactly it is I’m experiencing so I can quit thinking about it and just enjoy it.

Thanks.

I get this feeling once in a while too. No sharing the circumstances which are described here. This feeling comes always out of the blue. It suprizes me ever time and it is a great warm feeling sensation which lasts only for a few seconds and its gone. It may sound wired but this warm feeling feels like yellow colour when it starts out in my heart and while it spreads out to my chest it feels like white colour. No idea what it is.

The thing that you have talking I can also do it. I can able to create this from the center of my heart and make it flow through out my body. It starts as an explosion and when it happens it vibrates and I can make it travel. When I make it reach my hands, it starts shaking. Then after that loose breath and stop. After I stop it travels back to the center. recently I have been able to do that at the center of my head. Although it is very mild but I can feel it.

Heh, I get a similar feeling of very pleasant warmth or expansion in the center of my chest and lower neck, combined with head and arm tingles; for me it mostly happens if someone is asking me questions about myself, and only with strangers; even better if it’s on the phone.. In fact, I first noticed it when a political pollster called me; so, the closeness and contact actually doesn’t trigger it at all. I’m guessing it’s just another form of ASMR.

I have been trying to understand what is this feeling for years now, and this is the first time I come upon a description that explains exactly what I experience. The first time I felt this I was 7 while watching a movie, during a scene where a character died for another. It doesn’t happen very often, but I feel like there are days that I feel more ‘sensitive’. Then, one time I met a man in the street, and I got it when I looked at him and I kind of saw scenes of his life?? I don’t believe… Read more »

I too have this weird but good sensation in my chest that kind of spreads throughout my body. It’s like a strong pleasant piercing in my heart that spreads warmth The my chest and head. It happens when I feel someone is worried about me, but it has to be someone close to me and it works best when it’s a guy. As if that isn’t strange enough, it also happens when I see someone worried about someone else like in a movie or a book. Just thinking about it can make me feel that powerful warm feel. I can’t… Read more »

Oh my goodness. I’ve been trying Ono figure out what I’ve been feeling for the last 4 years but so far every time I come up with something it’s always a bit off. But your descriptions seems spot on. I don’t understand why it happens. It starts a little higher than the center if my chest and kinda just webs outwards. It happens at different times. Mostly when I’m relaxed or just relived. But not always. I don’t really know what it is.

My experience is a little different. I get this feeling almost all the time, a lot of times when I’m moving from one part of the house to another. What it feels like to me is a potentially great feeling just waiting to happen, in the dead-center of my chest. I always had this idea that if I were to concentrate on it I could really bring it out, but I’ve never attempted to do that before today. I guess maybe because it seemed like such a woo-woo idea, and I’m not much of a woo-woo person. Today I was… Read more »

Reading the comments, some say it is ASMR and other says it is spiritual. I think what you have experienced was more spiritual.
I have been experiencing a sensation like yours whenever I think about my crush (only in my crush). I’ve got a pleasurable feeling in the center of my chest, near my heart area. I’ve done some reasearch about this and I’ve found out some explanation that we are experiencing this because we are connecting to the soul of the person we are thinking of.

I know this feeling. I hope we are talking about the same feeling. When I feel it though it is a pleasant feeling I sense lonliness. It sort of feels like my body is reminding me to love myself reminding me of me. I was also told that was a homesick feelin. Whatever it is im glad im not alone

I always tought it was the holy spirit (god, jesus and the holy spirit). That is what I’ve learned when growing up. It feels realy good and peacefull, often in my heart. Sometimes I can feel it in my troath too. I have always seen it as a way God comunicates with me. This is the only thing(and that love exist, and good and evil also) that keeps me in my faith in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
But I don’t know, I think and hope it’s a spirtual thing.

Oh wow its so great I’ve finally found someone that talks about this. All the people I’ve tried to explain this to don’t know what I’m talking about, probably because I can’t really explain it well, I really liked how you put it though, think Ill use it. Its a lot different for me when I get it though, I only get it when I’m doing something that I enjoy and relaxs me(I get it whenever I watch the interrogation scene in Inglorious Basterds), but any sudden physical exertion and the feeling disappears. Really hope some researcher eventually gives this… Read more »

There is an actual label… ASMR…Autonomic Sensory Meridian Response. It is a natural feeling of euphoria in the brain, stemming from certain soothing and relaxing repetiting ations. On You Tube, there are many, many videos that trigger those wonderful desired tingles. They are great for personal times of relaxation ,meditation, time out, or winding down before bed. Happy tingling ! Staci
