Which is to say, the chakras are real...

It's certain enough that people can experience things that they tend to label as such, typically with a storyline to go with it, taken whole from a given source, or cobbled together from many sources. I agree that there's value in recognizing that people can have experiences with contradictory storylines to go with them. That it happens between people is also clear enough. That it can happen within the same person... now that's another matter altogether. While I think it's not unusual for a person's storyline (in this context) to evolve over the lifespan, I don't think it's at all common to happen the way you describe, kind of all at once.

I believe "real" is a poor choice of terminolgy within certain contexts as many times it is used while being undefined; relegated to some abstract form, and if one is going to diminish its' objectivity then why bother use it at all?

I honestly don't work with chakras. It's not my cup of tea, and I do not submit to the argument that a premise of mystical experience and/or practical exercise supports a conclusion of chakras being "real", as stated when in many cases it is not even understood what exactly "real" is.

Of course some mystical experiences and practical exercises approach the realm of the ineffable so it becomes more of a personal matter rather than that which is universally understood to be "real; not real".

For the record, I can say that I have felt not only the Chakras, but the Spheres that we consider to be the Sephiorth- on my body.

I suppose I relate to the 'tree' more in a macrocosmic setting in lieu of a microcosmic one, but given that they both are highly reflective of one another yields a bit of credence to your mystical experience.

Back when I had my own first and most prominent mystical experience I posted on an appropriate site, and one of the most knowledgeable users there(the owner) wrote it off as a Kundalini arousal(or awakening). Which I later dismissed as there was a lack of data to cross reference, and what data there was being inconclusive, or even contradictory, but perhaps this explanation may or may not be more applicable to your own experience.

In actuality I don't even see the spheres arranged as they are in the majority of diagrams. In the macrocosm I see them as concentric circles to conform with the aetherial expansion as well as the idea that every sephirah contains every other sephirah. Of course the micro and macrocosms are highly reflective; not carbon copies, and the most common diagrams of the 'tree' do appear to be in accordance with the microcosmic aspect corresponding visually with most of the major chakras.
