There is an energy that allows us to shift. It exists only in shifters even though they might not know what it is. In this topic I will call this energy "shifting energy". Shifting energy is the basic component in almost all shifting phenomena. Shifting energy is similar to the feel chi and reiki energy. I have known this energy to feel like a tingling sensation that feels good but uncomfortable, especially in large amounts. Shifting energy is felt most during a physical shift because this a shift where shifting energy is most needed. Some shifts drain your shifting energy, such as physical shifts and deep mental shifts. Shifters usually have peaks in their level of shifting energy during the new moon but mostly the during full moon. The amount of shifting energy you can retain will get higher as you become a more experienced shifter.
