Sensing energy with your breathing
Breath is intimately connected with chi, so a good way to sense an environment is to notice if your breathing changes when you enter a place. If abundant, positive chi is flowing freely in the space, your breathing expands and opens. If the chi of a space is stagnant, restricted, blocked, or noxious, your breathing feels more difficult or restricted when you enter; Just like changes in breathing naturally occur whenever you change environments. You may not have paid attention to it before, but changes to your breathing are a simple and effective way of sensing the energy in a space. As with all the other methods, you should consciously feel and pay attention to what your body is telling you.
