Chakras: Imaginary or Real???

". . . I do disagree with you, Brigitte, on the
chakras. They are certainly not imaginary, although
imagination is used to allow one to initially get in
touch with them. They are real, and I know this from
my own experience in addition to a great deal of
literature, both old and new, including the acceptance
of the chakras by modern transpersonal psychology. I
agree that the colorful fine details ala the likes of
CWL are a bit silly and overdone, but the chakras and
nadis themselves are very real."

It will be interesting to see if Brigitte and Jerry
outline their underlying thinking and reasoning for
coming to such opposite conclusions.

Brigitte has asked for modern scientific evidence for
"materializations", so what are her thoughts on this
in relation to chakras?

Related to chakras is the concept of an "aura". I
know several people who claim to see auras as well as
chakras. Some of them see both auras and chakras in
some interrelated non-physical structure. I believe
even Paul Johnson sees auras. I wonder whether
Brigitte considers auras to also be imaginary. If so,
then how does she explain what various people see when
they say they see auras and/or chakras?
