<<<Pls present us with your links showing the various Scientific tests or/and recognised tests from agknowledged parapsychologists that prove the chakras are real. >>>

Brigitte, as you probably know, transpersonal phsychology uses the 7 chakras as described in Hindu and Buddhist literature as a model. There is no presumption of reality or unreality. But they are discovering that the chakras can be used as a very useful model of psychological and developmental processes.

I am on record as saying that I "believe" that chakras are real. This is based primarily on my own personal experiences with them. As I have said many times, I can't "prove" any of this, even to myself. But as a working model, the chakras offer us a useful and effective tool. Same with the globes and planes model. We only get into trouble with these things when we either reify them into realities or deprecate them into unrealiites.
