I was going to post this in the anxiety group, but I see some posts on the main thread where people are feeling very "open" as I call it. Exposed, raw, vulnerable, anxious (especially in public).
I'm having one of those moments now. It's intense but I'm riding the wave. I feel energy on the surface of my skin, all over my body, like soft electricity, lifting the hairs on my arms and moving over my skin slightly. I also feel light energy flowing through my body, as if I'm an energy being (similar to the old expression when someone's nervous: "a ball of restless energy in the pit of the stomach," though this is my entire body). My hands are super cold (but it's 65 degrees F in here, which is a bit on the cool side anyway and I've been sedentary so my body temp is low).
I periodically affect electronics, depending on how intense my emotions are in this "open" state. My emotions change based on my thoughts and actions, and my emotions affect my energy, which is why the energy of intense emotions can "jump out" farther and conflict with electrical energy, in this state of openness (I believe this is good - to have open energy flow, as opposed to having blockages, though it could be flowing a little too much, but I don't know for sure).
My body feels tingly, very exposed (though I'm fully dressed), but actually, I think that it's more that I (my soul self, my true being) feel exposed, as if my awareness of my free flowing energy, from being so awake and aware and present, makes me feel as if other people are as aware of me as I am of me and can sense this intense anxiety, as if I'm wearing it like a costume and it's obvious. But really, they just pick up on how I feel through my mannerisms, tone of voice, etc., which is a reflection of my perspective of how I feel or what I'm thinking (all occurring inside me, though I will "show" some of this on the outside through my facial expressions, mannerisms, etc., which is what is visible to others).
So it's not necessarily that people are "reading" my energy. It's that they're noticing my reaction to my inner workings and responding to my reaction, depending on how observant they are and how open I am.
This anxious/super-sensitive state feels a little strange, uncomfortable, and awkward, but I know I'm safe and it will pass eventually, so I'm not going to add fear or any negativity to it to make it worse. Just breathe, do something different, listen to some good music, and allow the super sensitivity to pass on its own. Because it will. It always does.
It's like surfing/riding a wave at the ocean. I'm going to surrender to it and just float with it until the wave levels out. That's all. No need to add any hype to an already high-strung feeling
As with everything, this too shall pass. And it passes quicker when I don't hold onto it and fight it, because that only makes it stick around for longer. I know I want it to pass as quickly as it's able, so I will not give it much attention and hopefully it will get bored and leave soon.
Peace to all~
