I think one of the best exercises we do in aikido to feel one's own center is katatedori tenkan (or, tai-no-henko). I remember spending over an hour with a fellow student when I first started feeling what I needed to do to get her to move. Another good exercise is katatedori irimi for the same reason.

We pretty much always start out our classes doing these two exercises.
