Has anyone ever experienced that someone was affecting them remotely?
For example, I have woken up thinking about someone such as my mother. I call her and she had been thinking about calling me.
The odd thing is that I feel like I am in tune with others remotely, too. Others who I do not have the same level of emotional connection that I do with my mother or other family and friends.
A few days ago, I woke up thinking about a former coworker. We worked together and our interactions were very limited. It seemed very odd to me to be thinking about him and have him on my mind. Frankly, I do not know much about him. I know a few years ago that he moved out of state. Beyond that I am just not sure.
I found myself a little obsessed. I was looking on facebook and linkedin, where he had added me on both years ago. Continued to feel compelled to contact him. But really, I have nothing to say, because I do not know much about him.
This situation is so very odd to me. Am I too open while sleeping? Is it nothing empathic at all.
I am a mental health clinician, so I initial thought was it was just something unconscious stirred and coming to the surface. However, I am unable to determine what. I have no connect with this man, no feelings, no unresolved stuff. I can just not come up with a psychological reason.
In retrospect he may have been a little sweet on me. Perhaps that is what is coming up for me an that is what I need right now, but why the compulsion to contact him?
I appreciate any constructive feedback you have to offer...
