"It's been about 2-3 months now since I started using crystals and diving into the spiritual life, and a few weeks after I started, I noticed that with my left hand I feel as if the air around it is colder, especially in the center of my palm, and when that happens my right hand starts to feel warmer, also near the center. The other night it happened and I faced my palm towards my face and I could feel my face get a little cooler. What kind of phenomenon is this?"
Thanks for reaching out to Healing Crystals!
That's an interesting phenomenon and one I have experienced myself but is not unusual and is typically not a cause for worry. Here are my thoughts about what may be going on:
Each of us has a projective hand and a receptive hand. Typically the hand you write with (your dominant hand) is your projective hand. This phenomenon is usually experienced by reiki healers, crystal healers, and magic practitioners when they are funneling energy - a sensation of heat or cold through their hands. The cold in one hand and the heat in the other hand could indicate the flow of energy - the cold hand was receiving and the warm hand was projecting. If you felt the sensation shortly after working with the crystals, it could have been residual energy moving through your hands.
I will sometimes experience this if I've just been reading a book about spirituality, almost as if my hands are telling me, let's do this! Let's works some energy! The energy needs to go somewhere, so when you feel this sensation you have a couple of options. You can use the energy by grabbing a crystal or laying your hands over your chakras, etc. or you can ground it. Run your hands under water, bury them in earth or sand for a few minutes, or hold a grounding crystal for a while (usually black crystals such as obsidian, onyx, etc).
Energy work is a dense topic and one you may wish to look into further. I will say though, to pay attention to this and bring it to the attention of your doctor if it starts to feel painful or doesn't go away. There are medical conditions such as neuropathy that can cause a similar sensation. It's important to be able to tell the difference between something metaphysical and something that needs medical attention.
I hope this helps shed some light on this topic for you and please feel free to contact us if you have further questions.
