Empaths and Their Concept of Work


Empath

Unfortunately not enough information for me to advise you.  However, it may not hurt to see your doctor.  You definitely have a lot going on.  Stress can really kick in the adrenals, the endocrine levels etc.  That can make you just enough sluggish that you don't realize why things have become "too difficult".  You will have to tell the doctor where you see the change.  For example:  I usually don't have issues with motivation but now...; or I usually don't procrastinate this much but now...

Like I mentioned before, I went for years never suspecting that optimistic people could be depressed.  That was me.  Again, hind sight is 20/20.

Don't delay reaching out for help.  It will just prolong the misery.

Empaths and Their Concept of Work


Empath

Focus on raising your vibration.  When you do, businesses will become visible to you that operate outside of the traditional business sense.  What I am asking you to do won't be easy, because when you lose a secure income, fear is the first thing that will pop up its head.  Fear unfortunately is what will keep you from raising your vibration.  That is why I suggested to do something temporary to get some cash flow back and reduce at least some of the anxiety, so that you can turn things around to get to that TRUST that you will need.  When it appears that there are no answers coming from the outside, turn inward.  Your more intelligent self WILL guide you, and will never lead you wrong. 

Become very still.  Know that it will be ok to stop worrying about matters for those few minutes that you are doing this.  Later when you see it working for you, you WILL increase the time you seek this peace.  Eventually your whole life will change because it won't be EGO driven.  It will have an even more intelligent self driving it than the already mature legal person who was at the driver seat before.

I would not take the time typing this, if I did not believe you could do it.  It could also be an inspiration for anyone else in a similar situation.  Raise your vibration and change your life.  Then pass the torch.  A whole Universe is out there watching us do this, and they are ready to help.  However, they need to be invited to do so.  You must reach out and say: I am ready for help.  A more intelligent help than EGO can provide.

Empaths and Their Concept of Work


Empath

The reality is that unless you have someone else to fall back on temporarily, you may have to take a job you may not like.  However, how you conduct yourself in any job, regardless of its status of importance matters.  Taking a stand can be a difficult thing.  I guarantee it, you won't be popular.  It does not seem fair that one should have to leave a position and risk their own security because the company they work for is doing unethical things. (been there) However, these are choices we make daily. 

Since hind sight is 20/20, I can tell you that the things that did not work out in my life so far, were things that were not meant to be. (like the years I tried to fight my way back to the law office but was not taken seriously)... People used to say to me way back that things work out for the best.  Now I tell you this with a lot more conviction.  After past life recall, I understood why I had to be involved in a legal job in the first place, and also why I had to leave it for good.

From the things you posted, I can see that you are not far behind me in this enlightenment process.  Drawing more and more narcissist toward you is a test. When you are applying for positions and people don't take you seriously, as if you had a character flaw for being unemployed is a test.  It is a test of your EGO. 

What I am seeing here is that you are going in the right direction.  You may still be torn by which way to step.  People close to you may judge your decisions because they have bought into this illusion that we are all separate, that we must keep our status, our high paying jobs etc. 

While you are working on your spirituality and progressing with your private path, you could look into online opportunities to do contract work.  Look for organizations that help stay at home moms find jobs (even if you are not one).  You will just have to shake out the reputable organizations from the nonsensical ones.  I heard several people did well finding independent contractor work this way.  Technical writing may be a good option.  There is also a lot of legal knowledge needed in the healthcare industry.

At one point when there wasn't a job for me, I created one.  I applied to an add that said: "do you want to lose weight and help people at the same time".  Well, weight has never been my problem.  A lifetime athlete, one of the things I (also) am is a personal trainer.  However, I did feel genuinely drawn to wanting to help people with weight issues.  I did get the job.  Yes I was paid technician wages instead of a trainer salary.  It appeared even when the job ended that I may never personally benefit from any of the effort put forth on that job.  It ended up being meaningful down the road for me to get the job I am in now.  What I was being paid did not matter.  How I conducted myself while there made all the difference.  It turned out to be a good reference for me.  I also feel that my knowledge in psychology, and health & fitness helped the clients I came in contact with.  So in a sense I was paying it forward.  ...and down the road, I did see the benefit.  There were some interesting auxiliary duties on that job that I found pretty demeaning.  No wonder that by the time I hit enlightenment, I had satisfied the requirement of being homeless without actually having to be on the street.  I had very little personal income for the longest time. I had to know first hand what it was like to do jobs most people don't do by choice.

Now I see that it was a process.  Without doing these things, I would not have had my current attitude and perception.  The people who are judging you about the empath ideas are so far behind you (even if they may seem ahead) by having their jobs, homes, cars and perceived security.  It can all turn for them as well, on a dime some day.  Then they will only be starting the process, while you will be more settled by then.

Regardless of how scary and serious the situation you find yourself in, YOU NEED TO TRUST that you are not alone.  Calm the mind, and relax.  Let the Universe provide what you need.  You are a creator, you just don't know it.  You create your own reality.

By the way, the tricky thing about narcissists: you do have to show compassion toward them, but you do not need to be drawn into their negative energy.  It is a balancing act. 

It may not seem so, but you are moving forward.

Empaths and Their Concept of Work


Empath

In the interest of time I had only skimmed the responses and responding mainly to the original post.  There is no disrespect in this, but I do have a terrible upper respiratory illness.  Yet, I felt a certain connection with the OP (original poster) and wanted to reach out.

I formerly worked in the legal field, during the years when that meant REAL job security.  Unfortunately, at that time most legal offices had a tremendous amount of cigarette and cigar smoke to contend with.  As my health went down hill, I was forced to make a change.  The very first opportunity that presented itself, seemed miraculous.  I took it.  It only lasted a year but I was totally in my element. Unfortunately, the legal work has tainted me for life.  When in my new job I saw a potential for personal injury, I could not (like the general public would) shove my concerns under the rug.  When the issues could not be worked out to my satisfaction, I resigned.  Initially I had returned to a non-smoking legal office, but that was a terribly unsupportive environment otherwise.  So I was again looking for change.  Found another situation that was also in my element.  Spare you the long story here, ...as supportive as the environment was, I was unable to return to work due to the disability of my first child after birth.  Odd jobs and voluntarism kept me mentally intact although I felt a tremendous guilt being supported by my husband at the time.  I have made various attempts to re-apply in legal related work, but it appeared that that was not meant to be.  I was seeking, what you are looking for now, is at least some stability of income.  For years my husband and I had to take on full responsibility of the affairs of the child while the other of us had the opportunity to leave the home for work.  Since my husband was the main earner though, my opportunities had to take a back seat.

Although it seems this is the never ending story, there is a point I am trying to make.  I got to a point that I was attempting to stack odd jobs in hopes that they would together bring in something/anything.  As circumstances would have it, one of the jobs was eliminated when the owner sold her business and the other job with very minimal hours started to raise in me some ethical issues.  I literally threw my hands up one night, straight to the sky.  I said "that is it".  I give up.  The very important part of this story is that by then I had years of depression to speak of. Although I continued to be the little go-getter dinamo / the energizer bunny that would not give up, the mounting situation (unknowingly) took its toll.  I guess you can be depressed even if you are so busily trying that you are not aware of it. I went to bed that night feeling the lowest low in my life.  Could not see anything that could possibly be done after this. My mind was totally exhausted and blank. However, what happened next would change my current life forever.

During the years of trying to make things work as a stay-at-home parent, I had slowly been introduced to certain concepts, books, meditation. The night of the lowest low, when I went to sleep, I had a dream.  I visited a place of healing, total calm and tremendous love.  The last thing I remember is a hand on my shoulder as someone sent me on my merry way back with the telepathic message that I was doing a great job.  Woke up the next morning, kid you not, a different person.  The sun was shining and I had a knowing that all would be well.  Getting out of bed I was energized and most grateful for the bright sun.

What followed is an enlightenment experience.  I started to have past life recall and was able to see others' past lives as well.  I saw the connections we ALL had in previous lives, regardless of how insignificant our current relations may now seem.

Well, that was a process to go through, an intensely emotional experience, that is strange for some of us legal people, who are so analytical and rational.  Coming out on the other end, so to speak, I started having more psychic experiences.  I would know when guiding messages were trying to direct me, and I started trusting the process more and more.  Believe me, being a legal person, there was plenty of questioning that I put forth to my husband to ensure that I was still with the program.  Everything pointed to the fact that I was well, in fact better than ever. Years of depression just overnight disappeared.  I returned from that visit to this strange place (I experienced in the dream) a totally different person.

Four years later, following guidance given to me during meditation I landed a job that seemed to be lined up for me specifically. The work is physically and mentally more challenging than any job I had ever done before, but I am soooo grateful for it.  The environment may at times not even seem supportive to me personally, but I keep going back.  I am there for a different reason.  I consider it my service work. My talents are being utilized, and I am happy for it.  Unfortunately, I still have to remain creative to stay afloat with our finances. However, I have to believe that the "intelligent design" that I witnessed putting this all into place, must have a plan for my survival to continue the work. 

My suggestion to you is to stop trying to work the problem out with your EGO mind.  Give your more intelligent higher self the opportunity to drive.  That more intelligent part of you WILL NOT interfere or even give guidance, unless you invite it do do so.  For that, you need to STOP thinking.  Easier said than done.  Some find it more easy to do this if they are actually moving physically, like doing karate or tai chi. Others may do gardening or any activity (even dancing) that they can do mindlessly to clear the chatter that is keeping some real meaningful thoughts from reaching you. 

Other empaths can and will reach out to give you suggestions as to possible things to try to make it financially.  However, the intelligent YOU, your higher self will know what you really like to do, what are the things that make you real happy.  It will help you find what you are looking for, but it must be invited to do so.  The law of no interference.

Wish you the peace I have found in this journey.  Happiness Always!

:)

What do sociopaths feel like to you?


Empath

They are initially very charming and unless they slip up, you may not notice a hook approaching. You may actually think that "things are too good to be true". Then as time progresses, you realize that this person, compared to others expect more from you.

You are lucky if they are just a passing acquaintance and you can shift out of their way. Otherwise you are in for some drama.

I have enough of this in my life without focusing on it further, so...good luck friends picking these out of a crowd and not fall victim.

I was just thinking (the other day) that being an empath predisposes you to some of this. The people with the psychological problem (or manipulative tendencies with clear wrong intention) use what they see as a weakness in you. Believe it or not, empaths fall victim all the time because they are so cautious about hurting other people's feelings. The manipulators will play their game, so as to make you think that you would be hurting their feelings if you "did not respond" "did not act" or "do whatever they set up for you to do.

The way to spot them is to ask: IS THE REQEST REASONABLE or is is Excessive. Is complying to their request imposing on you.

You will FEEL the strain before you will pick it up with even the most logical mind.

Listen to your heart and stay clear of these folks.

Good luck.

Dreams


Empath

It is all about brain waves. Something in what you do, or what you are experiencing in your waking life is causing you to have these low brain waved/ delta dreams. I think that is what that state of dreaming was called. It is the one where you see very clearly information that is coming to you.

Come to think of it, you may have a very good imagination in the waking life as well, as that input you generate in the daytime may in conjunction with other things produce these dreams. (in some instances anyway)

The reason others may not experience them is because some of the factors to produce them is missing for them. First of all, one needs to actually get deep restful sleep, which a lot of people today don't devote the time to or find difficult to do.

Meditating and getting in touch with one's higher self helps. When I meditate regularly, these dreams do increase for me. I get messages/information from the dreams. Like someone else above suggested, some of these messages are about strong probabilities that may happen. So as to not freak you out, I will say again "may".

For example: I can have a vivid but short dream about an accident possibility. The next day I feel rushed but in the back of my mind is this nagging feeling that that dream produced. So I am one second late starting my car at an intersection as a result. The one second makes all the difference and realize that another car that approached suddenly and unexpectedly could have caused an accident, had I not had the delay. In a situation like this, something more intelligent than your conscious self is communicating to you some possibilities or probabilities. It is your choice what you pick out of that dream to focus on or how casually you treat the information.

Let me go back and add: some of the delta dreams I've personally had were not about warnings but about where I may be living next. They were visual settings, which very surprisingly materialized when I was house hunting. I am still amazed when this comes together like that. You dream of a detailed setting and it shows up in your life (what appears down the road) or in the future.

I found my place in the world


Empath

We need more posts like this. Thank you.

What I am finding to be true is what you FOCUS on matters a lot more than the average person thinks. After an enlightenment-type experience, a human has the ability to shift focus and like you found, that can make all the difference in the world in how your daily life unfolds.

I am glad you touched on the fact that being in your current body there is still more work to do. Often people think that after enlightenment everything becomes "rosy". Yes there is healing and there is also some old energies that surface that one must deal with. Your ability to deal becomes better though, and that is a great help.

Again, thank you for taking the time to reach out to others. Interestingly, as you start doing things for others, with right intention, some real powerful things will start happening in your life.

Enjoy the ride.

Namaste

The ah ha!


Empath

So much more is possible than our conscious selves are capable of perceiving. Let your own experience guide you.

Although I had a major perception change in the last four to five years, I still feel that as long as I am living in this dimension, I am to continue to use critical thinking and work with all that science affords me. However, the longer I am here, the more I realize that there are plenty that science simply cannot explain.

For the majority of people the explanation I gave would be far fetched. I can usually come up with something more scientific (for them), after asking the anxiety sufferer: what did you eat or do before this happened to you, or what has been occupying your mind in the past month. People like to have things settled (explained), so the brain searches for answers as to why this happened. That is a typical human reaction.

The answers we give for, or attach to, our experience can be scientific based, spiritual based, or the way I like to look at things now days, is to explain it both ways. Then, depending on who the person is at the time, can take from it exactly what he/she needs.

No explanation would just leave the event in certain people's mind constantly searching for an answer.

The ah ha!


Empath

In this reality where you and I are conversing, we experience time. From an other dimension you were approached to see if you would temporarily transport a traumatized soul (which will have to be rescued from a body) that will be shot in what you and I consider our future.)

The feeling of your son's cheek on your face was just a communication from this non-verbal entity that it is a friendly, one. Even this gesture could not put you at ease, and you were probably not the best one to even temporarily accept this burden/assignment.

We operate on a conscious level, but there is also activity that happens on a subconscious level. On this subconscious level, you just declined to participate. Remember, there is free will. You were not the match they were looking for.

This may seem far fetched to you. It would have been to me too, had this info came to me prior to reading the Dolores Cannon books.

If and when you realize that souls live on forever, you will also realize that some don't necessarily complete their work here on Earth in the exact time as some accidental thing happens to the body they occupy; or as it is becoming the thing now, some random shooting happens. Some souls are ready to go with the body, but some souls attempt to remain here until a suitable place is found for them to resume their work. Interestingly, the soul (operating in "no time") can foresee what is about to happen to the body "in time" and can make arrangements to be housed elsewhere.

So, for example, a (male) helicopter pilot who's body perished in a Ukrainian field where his plane crashed, could have ended up staying with a North American (woman) empath (who loves to fly and likes helicopters). He would have arrived before the accident. The soul and the empath receiving it would similarly be experiencing anxiety/distress. The empath could be even on a conscious level realizing that they have no reason to be distressed and that this issue they are having must be coming from somewhere else. Eventually, a permanent place is found for the helicopter pilot and he moves on or he may decide to stay with the body, accepting that he will only be enjoying flying helicopters on a recreational basis.

Again, some of this, like the late Dolores Cannon used to say, will require a little stretch of one's imagination.

I like fiber arts, but like you, I have had to keep the dream alive in other ways than actually practicing the craft. I hope to get back to it. Because I enjoy the design process part of it the most, rather than cranking out some production knitting based on existing patterns, it is more time consuming. With my focus on family first, art second, I feel like I have been existing with one arm cut off. So, I do know what you mean, you wonder "is it time yet". I am very excited about a new work opportunity where I will be working with kids and art. Maybe that will get me back into it on a personal level as well.

Think I had a glimpse of a past life


New Age

I'll try and quickly give another example:

As a young adult I was inspired to paint (more like copy) a Thomas Kinkade painting of a cute cottage. Now I must mention here that I had not painted much before then, nor after that time, so this is highly unusual for me. I was pretty happy with the result and tucked my art in with other sentimental stuff I keep around the house. Many many years later, after a very serious past life recall/enlightenment process, I was busy reading about all these famous people that have been revealed to me to be past lives; [again, history not being one of my favorite subjects, this was unusual as well]. My research turned up an interesting video on one of the past lives. Pictures and events were flashed from the person's short time here on earth, but interestingly the person who put the video together also included something that to most would be totally out of context. Suddenly I saw the same cottage I had painted (repainted) years ago show up in the footage. If the picture of the cottage would have been incorporated in the video in some seamless fashion, I would have said, coincidence. But it was just flashed in there for what seems like absolutely no reason. I began tearing around the house looking for the old painting attempt to see if this was truly one and the same cottage. It was.

Interestingly, this famous person always felt excluded from his famous singer family. Although I am not too impressed with celebrities and alike and don't spend much time reading or thinking about them, I always felt that I could be happy singing with this one group (a famous band), if the opportunity arose, not even on stage, just kicking back in a relaxed setting. Prior to the past life recall I had no idea why I felt that way. Now everything suddenly made sense, just like after reading about the other famous people and their experiences that seemed to coincide with my life.

So the Thomas Kinkade painting did not mean that I had been him in another life, but the painting had led me to this other person and although the cottage thing was not the only reason I had believed to be that person in another life, suddenly this pulled me closer to actually believing it.

Same goes for clothing I had been given by a very old person to wear to a gala event. I found pictures of a famous woman who was revealed to me to be a past life, and lo and behold she was photographed in practically the same dress. Things like that can be extra helpful if you are trying to figure out which one of a set of twins you were in a past life. In this case the dress and various other personality traits, and writing style had firmed that up.

Think I had a glimpse of a past life


New Age

I just had an interesting revelation about past lives (or other lives) as I sometimes like to call them, but did not quite have the time to start and monitor a whole new discussion about it. I thought I post it here, for whatever it is worth.

In bits and pieces certain past lives can become known to us. One morning I woke with a name coming to me. The reason I took notice is that I am not a left brained individual, and I am hard pressed to remember names of people I need to. This was a name I did not recognize nor was I sure how to spell it.

So, I also got a clue (or knowing) that the person's name had to do with space or space travel. I thought, there is no way I am going to remember this later, so I went to my computer in the early hours of the morning to jot down the name. I looked it up later, and I found that there was a similar sounding name in space travel, although I did not get the spelling exactly right. I wrote it down how it sounded to me when it was communicated to me.

I spent a little time looking into the life of this famous person, and for the first time I became aware how many similarities this person and I had. Today, as I was doing mundane tasks, like putting clean towels back on the shelf, it came to me how often I shouted a certain thing at my son's soccer game, that was almost one and the same word as the space ship this past life of mine had died in. As if I was slowly being reminded of who I was. Clues were coming, but until sufficient background stuff comes through, the revelation would not be as meaningful. Or one might just brush off the revelation of that past life as: "nah... I just wish I would have been that person" rather than, now I can see how I could have been that person, because there is all this stuff that lined up soooooo similarly for me that it is uncanny.

Then I thought, if there is no time, we just perceive it as there is, then this may not even be a past life of mine but I am living the life before that space accident. I may be living another probability that had not yet come to that point of opportunity this person had to actually make it onto that space vehicle.

Another interesting thing was, how often I thought the same exact thought as in documentaries this person was heard saying/thinking, such as: I don't think this opportunity would open up to me, but if they were taking blah blah blah's into space, I would definitely volunteer. I would be so excited that that would overshadow any possible fear involved in the venture.

Well, I am just rambling here. However, past life information comes to us in so many ways, we are just not awake enough to see it for what it is. It is in the things we say, the things we do, the people that turn up in our lives and so on.

Empath

There is nothing to worry about. I just put information out there. If it does not resonate with you, it usually means that because I am not physically there to see and hear what is going on that I am not picking up correctly what is going on from your initial post.

The same thing happened to 15 other people before me. They looked at your post, but did not quite understand "just what is going on here".

I did not answer the post because I felt I could solve your problem. The problem will ultimately be solved by you, who is BTW closest to the action. I was just lending the ear so you could talk it out, if it turned out that you needed that temporary "ear" until you figured out who closer to you would be a good one to talk with.

It sounded like you could talk with your mother, or like two people here suggested, if you wanted an objective outside person, a school counselor or mentor is another good idea.

At least you sound like you are back in "thinking mode" rather than panic mode. That should help figure things out.

My best wishes to you in your journey!

Don't worry. We were young people once. What I do remember from that time is that not having the ability to talk things out, always made things worse. Some people think better when they can bounce things off of other people.

Your sister may even be asking you about how you feel about someone and telling you that good thing you don't have feelings for a person because she may be having feelings for the same person herself. Again, I don't quite know if I am getting the whole thing right. Maybe the age thing has nothing to do with it, she just would like you to think it does.

I can see why people have a difficult time to comment or give advice in this case, although you do sound like you could really use someone to talk this over with. From your note, and not knowing the different characters personally, I am afraid I am just as clueless as to how to help. Look very carefully around you and see if you could find a friend you could discuss this with or even a safe adult. If you don't have anyone come to mind immediately, there is always the school counselor that you could talk with. They keep everything you say confidential.

I am afraid this is my best shot at this.

The people who go through difficult times tend to get to this point faster than those who seem to have everything going for them. Some even complete their journey early, and then they can just kick back. Well, the kicking back is work too, but there seems to be less suffering because you get a different perspective by then. Don't worry if this makes little sense at this point. I am just chattering.

Think I had a glimpse of a past life


New Age

The information will try to get through in ways that you can understand. If you are predominantly left brained, for example, you may get verbal cues, if you are right brained, the information will come more as pictures (visions) and simply "knowing" something. Like the way you knew what the person's circumstances were in the above example (your original post).

Because people are more relaxed while they sleep (the sleeping process actually becomes for them a type of meditation). Information can surface as a strange dream. A dream journal can be helpful to keep. A friend of mine is better with keeping up a journal, because he is left brained. I record mostly the more exciting ones or the more puzzling ones where the message does not seem too clear. The real message in a dream may not hit you until you see the same circumstances play out later in your life. Then you are excited and puzzled by what one may interpret as the strangest coincidence.

I was glad to find your post because I am excited to find people who are going through a similar journey.

Think I had a glimpse of a past life


New Age

Be careful with this one. What I am saying is that "setting an intention to learn about something" is the part you need to continue. Just know that the answer may not come right away. Pressing, pressuring (especially worrying that the information is not yet forthcoming) is exactly what shuts down the information from coming through. So, basically don't try too hard, but DO continue to calm the mind so that the information you seek has the chance to get through.

In my case a lot of information came through so fast and at once, that I practically had to sit there taking notes and try to grab as much of it as possible at the time (and like you are doing now, processing it later by thinking about it).

Learning about past lives can be part of a healing process. However, spending too much time away from the current life struggle may keep you longer in a state where that information will be locked away from you. You need to concentrate on and complete enough of this struggle, in the life that you and I are communicating in right now before more past life information will come forward. Sometimes only short bursts will come through, because they may move you forward with a current problem.

Don't hesitate to write back if I am not being clear.

Think I had a glimpse of a past life


New Age

As you found out in the above case, the proper preparation, and added intention was enough to lay the ground work. However, trying harder was not the way to get through to the information you seek. At times when the mind is truly calm (the trick is "calm LONG ENOUGH"), then information will come through to you. Which it did!

I know exactly how amazing it seems to our conscious state when that does happen, and especially when the conscious part of us least expects it.

Know that you are supported.

Needing Guidance


Empath

I was a bit confused by your use of the word "enlightened", because if you were talking about THE enlightenment process itself, that would have put into perspective a lot of things for you.

I would say, continue to explore and keep working on your Earthly problems, and I have a feeling things will become clearer in time.

Best Wishes!

Feeling as though I'm losing my best friend.


Empath

It is sad, but I think you said everything that had to be said about this. This was one sided, and you deserve better. The tactic your friend used is called "splitting". If you look up Narcissistic and Borderline Personality Disorder, you will see that one tactic these folks use is "splitting", which is the same as separating someone from other meaningful friendships, so as to possessively keep the person AVAILABLE to them as they need. I said it is sad, because this "so-called friend of yours" does not have other people at the moment lined up to exploit, so you are it. Having you get involved with other relationships at this time is not in her interest. Your needs have never been her focus, nor will ever be (if I am reading this right).

You are lucky if you are not related to this person. I would run as fast as my legs can carry me. However, you just watch, if this person is truly suffering from a personality disorder (as I for now only suspect), the distancing may not be as easy as that.

Good luck with this. Unfortunately, you nailed it. What you suspect sounds like it is right on. One more thing... listen to your gut. That will confirm it. It is closer to the action than any of us here.

Actually, what I am noticing is that some people get nervous before an event and some after. The ones who get nervous before, may not be able to eat their normal diet and in various ways show their stress before an event. Those who can hold it together before and during and event, which I believe is a cool thing, end up dealing with the bottled up stuff and it must come out at the end. So, this second group takes the time to assess how they did in a situation and what they wish they could have done differently. The resulting anxiety may actually impress you at a later time to not act similarly. So there is some room for it, I mean the anxiety, but know when you have revisited the situation, learned (hopefully) from it, and now instead of taking out boxing gloves and beat yourself up for hours, days, weeks or months, move onto other things (you can later beat yourself up about. (hopefully not)

Explaining the body's function by simulating it to a vehicle is simpler, but explaining the "I" the "we" the "us" and "them" is somewhat more complicated. So, I would recommend getting used to the idea of the physical body as just a vehicle first.

A more complicated situation to envision is that the body even without a death could have a soul replacement. However, you and I both know that not too many of us put a brand new engine into a rusty old car. So, similarly, the body has to be in very good condition with the unfortunate situation of its soul not wanting to continue its mission or being called on a more important mission elsewhere for that to happen. Don't get too sidetracked by this information. I only threw it in there for future reference.

For those who not only call themselves enlightened but are, there comes a realization that although you have been man, woman, or a solid object or even gas before in a different experience, there is a basic part of you (a certain core) that seem to have very similar characteristics. Let's see if I can explain this easier. Ignore that I just said that you can be a gas in one of your lives too, as that won't help you in understanding what I am trying to attempt here (an explanation about the higher states). So, just think humans for example ...[now I am laughing because if we think that is a higher state that is "ridiculous"]...but anyway . Let's say more complex than a happily floating gas...

A soul can be returning as an Indian leader, a United States President, an advice columnist, a woman aviator, and even an African princess. Interestingly, the returning basic soul can have very deep down a certain sameness, that will cause these characters to act similarly in certain situations. That deeply buried returning character (which can show itself as one's values) could be shared by all these characters I listed. Honesty, integrity, stubbornness ...whatever. When a person suddenly experiences past life recall, they can actually see how it could be possible to be all these different people yet be the same. If you had any prejudice left in your life this state usually resolves that. Having been an Indian chief, a white President and an African humanitarian as well as all other things in between (like being religious and not having a religion at all, or being male and female)...do you see how that could give you a perspective different than the mainstream human experience.

An enlightened person with knowledge of his/her previous lives will start recognizing that core sameness and calling it "I". When they think of themselves, it is no longer on the basis of sex, race, religious affiliation. The enlightened will also know that perceiving themselves as this separate individual is only a current state or actually a perception.

So, another good question to start asking is "Who am I?" By the way your original question was not ridiculous at all. As we advance, we start asking questions for which the answers can be very complex.

It sounds like this past-lives discussion is not helping your health. Try to take a break from it. Spend some time in nature to see if that will help.

I am rushing off, because the pressures of this life is calling.

When we are done with this life, it will be pretty clear whether we know each other.

That is entirely possible, as we have been both famous and non-famous people (in other lives). A lot of message boards use avatars of famous people. The web is loaded with the likeness of famous people.

Just type in a name and hit "images". [Do not get confused with the images of other people that get put in there as a joke...stick with the images of the person you are researching].

A woman in my soul group was a president's wife in another life. Just like in that life, in this life too her husband and her are equals. You may think this to be a minor detail, but for that early time to be so, is pretty incredible. Today the two share the same high profile profession.

Now that past lives have been revealed to me, I have fun discovering other people's past lives. Sometimes the realization hits rather unexpectedly as I make the discovery. However, I am constantly reminded to stay focused on the contributions of this life, as that is what is most important. Past lives are helpful to know for therapy purposes, but we have other important work to do HERE and NOW.

Best of luck with your journey!

Happy Holidays!

You just described my situation re: similar physical identifying features, same set of values and so on as what I had in past lives. You also described the mixed emotional feelings I had as these past lives were recalled. Because I had several past or other lives revealed at once, it was pretty confusing and mind boggling too, because I have several people in my life who are immediate soul members experiencing this (as well as past lives) with me. I was also able to pick out other "cast members", if you want to call it that, if this life were to be considered a "play". These people are only in your life to a certain point, to help with their (or your) development, or both.

Just wanted to say that it is not a given that you will continue to feel the same way once further and further information is revealed to you. This takes time. ...and ALL the time is given that you need. If you need another lifetime to figure it out, that is fine too. It looks like you are moving forward though.

I know this is difficult to grasp, but everything is happening at once. There is no present, past, future. We occasionally get a vision of ANOTHER time. It is interesting that both of you got the same vision that involved his legs. That may be so that you are steered to make a certain decision about the pins.

What Dolores would tell you, if she were here would be to read her books with an open mind and just try to grasp the concepts. If you only came away with knowing that what we perceive with our ordinary senses are not ALL that is, then you are already ahead.

In the book I just finished she notes that if you start looking at your current life as a dream and your dreams [remembered or not] as "reality" then you will be closer to the truth.

In my first response to you, I don't think I remembered to add the part about Earth Families. I struggled for a long time trying to understand that: If it is true that we pick the families we are born into when we incarnate or reincarnate, why so many beings have a terrible time relating to their adult human parents. First I went through denial, like "there is no way I would have picked my current situation or parents". Then as I learn more about the concept of time and returning to my original way of thinking "that anything is possible", I am starting to see it.

I hear various people reflect on their terrible childhoods, abusive parents and so on, or if not as bad, the situation can be simply being constantly misunderstood or not at all understood. To an intelligent "higher level" being this can be bad enough, dealing on a daily basis with parents who are on a lower evolutionary level.

Then I figured out that time is just something we perceive. Notice it moves slower when you are doing unpleasant tasks and notice how quickly it flies when you are having fun. (obviously there is more to it, but I won't get into it here)...not important.

Basically, the only way some of these beings that are incarnating into these Earth families can even think to take on the abusive situations they willingly take on is to understand that the time segment that this life represents is a very short segment in the scheme of things or ALL time [which really is NO time or eternity]. Hope that is not too confusing. So these entities willingly take on what they perceive as a short duration of struggle. Making that decision on the other side (not in this life) also gives the advantage of knowing that no matter what happens during that struggle, they can't die. Just think how much easier it is to do a battle in a video game than a battle in what you think of now as "real life". When your concept of "real life" changes, your current life game becomes easier, but for that you need to be AWARE of the big picture.

Even knowing all this...I continued to ponder over the question: "So then what logical reason did I pick parent number 1 and parent number 2." This made me start looking at the sometimes hidden positive qualities of each parent. Interestingly, that brought me to the point where I am more grateful, possibly more compassionate toward these humans who are clearly less evolved and more fearful of their environment than I am. I must have decided when I was ready to come into this life that their DNA was more important than their level of compassion. One had good organizational skills, the other a very strong muscular healthy body. These were going to be extremely important for me in the long run. (I think, for now...as daily new information keeps coming in)

When you say: "just don't feel like my family"...this reminds me of the Dolores Cannon books where entities when called upon to talk about their non-human lives and families they are ever so delighted whenever they get reunited with one of their kind or when they are in a group of their kind. The love and closeness cannot be described in words the humans created for language and communication.

Just some more food for thought.

I just finished a Dolores Cannon book and am in the middle of one of her other books. I was going to recommend it, but Cat beat me to it. ha ha

Let me add this. If you find that you are inspired to pick up that book now that two of us recommended it, then that is what you need to be doing. However, if you keep putting it off for various reasons, then that is exactly what you need to be doing. Let your intuition guide you. Dolores used to refer to that intuition as the "SC".

When we first come here, it could be too confusing to have full memory of all of our other existences. When we get a good chunk of our work accomplished and there can be other reasons, some memories are gradually allowed (if it is not too distracting to our current work).

Anyway, see how you feel about the Cannon books. It could answer some of your questions (but only if it is time).

What's the deal with me?


Empath

If you are going through an awakening, you will require more rest than you are accustomed to. The good news is, that once you come out on the other side and become enlightened you will need much less rest than others. ha ha Nature is very calming, and so is running water. Seek those out. I need to run to feed an "army". (In a previous life of mine that sentence had a very different meaning.) LOL

Take good care!

What's the deal with me?


Empath

Any change from the norm "good" or "bad" causes stress. Our ability to respond to these stresses is the problem. After prolonged stress the body depletes certain vitamins and nutrients. Alternative practitioners could help with that. Bloodwork can determine if you are very low in some of these substances. Even a daily multi-vitamin is better than taking nothing. It is soooo strange for me to recommend this, as in my youth I paid very little attention to this. However, as life got way too stressful, I became painfully aware.

If you are going through an awakening of sorts, the initial part of that can be pretty rough. Just have to ride through it. At one point things get very very emotional as well (even for people who don't consider themselves overly emotional). When you come out on the other side though, you will find that just by the nature of things things will calm down. By that I mean a certain amount of the anxiety decreases. However, don't expect it ALL to disappear. As you get to a higher vibration, your challenges increase as well. It is almost like moving up in school. When you can handle more (with increasing age) the course work increases.

I find it helpful sometimes to just say that I am stressed, and have someone...anyone... acknowledge that things are truly crazy out there. Meditation helps. It also helps with your awakening process.

I know what you mean about the drugs. Only you will know to what degree it would help. Sometimes we have to have it. Other times we can make do without it.

Running off for now...hope this helps!

Why am I so different? Past life reading


New Age

I had so much coming at me "directly" that I have not found it necessary to be put under hypnosis to discover past lives. I do realize though that for some people who are curious about their past lives but not yet reached the meditative states necessary for direct past life recall on their own, this could be a tool. That is why I mentioned it.

Ecila, thanks by the way for opening a certain door, where once I peeked in, I started really exploring. The link itself was funny (and so true), but sometimes it is where you go from there that counts. So, in some strange sense, you acted as a "guide" to some additional and very useful knowledge that will start me asking new questions during my meditations and explorations. Thanks for taking the time to post that link.

Why am I so different? Past life reading


New Age

I originally used the link posted by Ecila, but I ventured off on my own later on the internet and came across some Dolores Cannon material where she talks about the "volunteers".

Dolores refers to these volunteers as entities who came to help on Earth but have no Karma baggage.

Could Emmy be one of them? Only Emmy would know.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ucn3Xswv4Q

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45jj-zTr9EA

In one of the above links Dolores, a long time hypnotherapist, differentiates these volunteers from walk-ins. I found that really interesting. Some things she talked about seemed to resonate with my own experience, and I felt that she knew what she was talking about.

Good thing too, as later when I saw her responding in question and answer sessions, she was not as effective. I wish she did not even try to do that part. She is primarily a researcher with a specific focus. Sometimes during question and answer sessions people try to engage her in their own speculation and I don't think she has the energy or the interest in pursuing that. (So, you can feel free to skip that part if you follow the link)

Emmy could pursue hypnosis, if she felt the need. However, some of us just instinctively work toward the goals that we came here to do. If we quiet our mind the direction which we need to go in will present itself.

Dolores mentioned a group of entities for example, who don't even need to do anything but "be" and everyone around them will absorb the energy they bring. Those folks will find it really frustrating to try and fit into a world where "people" define and give significance to the question: "what do you do?".

You may get an answer like "I am", but that would only leave the questioner further puzzled.

Why am I so different? Past life reading


New Age

A few years back, I stood there in disbelief too that I could have possibly volunteered for this life. So "Cat" I will kick your behind if you kick mine.

What we fail to realize is that at the time we plan all this with our soul group, we know the significant markers we will hit (while here on Earth) as well as our exit plan. To that entity that is planning this, what is a short time of suffering? May I remind you also that an Earthly life time is a short time in terms of eternity. Once we get here, we have to rediscover that knowing we had back then. If we do, the game gets a bit easier. I am beginning to think too that no matter how introverted you may be or become on this planet, you can't beat the game unless you cooperate with others. Certain avenues simply won't open up for you until you do. Some of us are getting the tougher challenges too like chronic illnesses. I did not spend much time thinking of myself as a healer before, but I am starting to self heal. Yesterday I heard a presentation by Dolores Cannon where she said it with conviction that we all have the ability to do so. She went further to say that we make ourselves sick.

Well, I better go heal myself then, as I just busted a blood vessel in my finger and it is rather uncomfortable to type. Come to think of it, this is about the third hand injury I am telling you guys about. It is time to ask the question, "what is up with that"?

Why am I so different? Past life reading


New Age

It is interesting how traumatized we get over these things. If we only realized that some of these experiences are intended for the other person/driver. For example, I had the belligerant driver situation (and I could have described it word for word as above). As he leaned on his horn (after arriving out of no where) ...obviously speeding... I realized that this was a test of his current state. Is he getting more compassionate with others, or is he going to be dead soon and given another opportunity to retry in another life. Instead of being traumatized, I felt sorry for him. Since I was being used as the teacher in this experiment (of driving) and he the student, I also believed that if the Universe was going to use me for this experiment, it was also going to provide for my safety. So, being almost rear ended did not stay with me long.

These tests and experiences don't just involve driving. There is a person who is an established high ranking administrator at a University setting and a Facebook friend. As of late I note that she keeps posting conflicting spiritual messages on her Facebook page. At times (based on the things she posts) one could assume that she is way up there in compassion. Periodically, I would respond to her post just to test that level of compassion. Her rude way of not responding at all is testing how much affect I am getting out of her ignoring me. Each time she has less and less affect on me, which means I am learning. The next thing (I predict will happen) is that she will be moved onto dealing with someone other than myself who is still getting a little more "sting" out of this than an enlightened guru.

Hope this makes some sense to you guys. Try to see with each event "who" is getting the bigger lesson here?

Why am I so different? Past life reading


New Age

There are so many things that one reads about and considers during the journey. I HAVE looked at the astrological birth chart as well in the past that Snake Medicine referred to. For me that filled in SOME gaps on the road to self-discovery (which self-discovery eventually led to past life recall). I am glad that several people responded in this thread, as this way Emmy will get some additional suggestions regarding how she could move forward.

What you have to understand is that things really really speed up for enlightened individuals, and it becomes impossible to recall in a linear fashion every aha (as well as mundane) moment that went into discovering the big picture. I find that many of the enlightened don't even try to explain what they see as un-explainable, as they feel people will eventually experience it for themselves anyway ...as your journey IS personal. Initially, in the sudden excitement of my enlightenment, I was looking right and left to see who else I could bring along on the journey, just to find that few people (in my immediate surroundings anyway) were ready.

It sounds like Emmy IS ready to tackle some of her issues.

Whether it is illness or fears, at one point in our lives we must simply stop all that we are doing and just look at this thing, this fear or illness. What have we done about it up to his point. Where is this coming from? or even what is this illness or fear keeping me from doing?

If you are afraid of fish for example, go to a pet store and look at the fish in the tanks. As the fish swim in the tanks, what PART is frightening you. Is it the big fish, the little fish, the teeth of the fish? what? Is it really the fish you are afraid of? Is it the water? Are you better with swimming pools than deep lakes/oceans etc.? Throw an object into a bowl of water that has the ability to slowly sink. See if there is any emotional response to this? If none, fine. Sometimes there may not be a response to any of this until you get to a certain geographical area of the world (perhaps on a certain vacation)and then a specific shore/beach/or part of the ocean brings with it numerous discoveries. Don't expect to make all the connections to all things immediately as it happens. So, taking some photos out and going back on memory lane could help the process. [Don't ignore the things that appear odd to you] After enlightenment looking at old photos is a strange thing. You not only know about your past lives, but now discover certain players in this life who may only show up for a short segment of your life, but who have played a more significant role in a past life. You have lost touch with them now, but wish you could contact them to tell them that you so appreciated their input in that past life and it was good to see them again in this life as a friend of a friend.

But back to fish, boats, water etc. You may become physically ill during wale watching although you don't have any issues being on boats otherwise. You find yourself leaning over the edge of the boat and feel much better, but the minute you get to the inside & center of the boat you become ill again. (Obviously, these are just examples, but see how you need to look for the specifics in your situation). Keep asking why and what part is the issue or problem.

As for the driving:

Sit in a quiet darkened room, close your eyes and pretend you are driving. Actually rest your hand on a pillow in your lap holding your arms up as if they were holding the steering wheel. Don't go actively trying to think further. See what comes up on its own. If this is going anywhere, do it a few more times.

Sometimes the trauma and the fear is so great that it takes several lifetimes to get through it.

I believe I was a Titanic survivor. Only have issues with certain parts of the "oceans". Some geographical parts of the Earth I am still not ready to tackle again (in this lifetime). I don't wish to visit Africa or the Middle East nor Egypt, although I have become aware of some of my split incarnations who are working on those issues that I decided to table. All the power to them.

Why am I so different? Past life reading


New Age

My recommendation would be to start with this life. Learning about who you are here and now. When you get the ability to touch on your core or understand what motivates you in this life, when past lives are revealed to you, you will see how your internal self has remained the same from life to life.

So, how do you do that?

You start by asking questions like "who am I"? The way you deal with emotions for example may have something to do with your temperament. See MBTI. What MBTI would be the closest to how you operate on a daily basis. When you look at the Keirsey Temperament sorter for example, when you narrow down to your type, it will give you other famous people who were recognized as having the same disposition.

There are some battles in life that we have to fight for ourselves, and this past life thing may be one of them. Yes, someone could tell you that they have recognized you from an earlier life and know you to be so and so. However, if you want that revelation to be meaningful when it actually arrives, you have to get ready for it.

Knowing who you are (in this life) is the first. Loving oneself as one loves others is probably even more difficult. If you get those two things down though, you will be starting to get some messages directly from source...but not only that...you will trust the messages more than you have trusted them in the past. Things will become clearer and clearer to you until you find yourself with a totally different perception than where you began.

The process can't be rushed, but it can be worked on diligently if one has the desire.

I have a hunch as to your type based on your post, but would not want to assume anything. I believe that you are the type of person who will consider a variety of information and let your intuition guide you. That intuition will get you to know first hand your past lives. Mark my words on this...when the revelation of those past lives happen, at least some of the past lives will come forward with an amount of emotion that you did not think possible to experience. ...and this is coming from a person who is quite the "rational".

Wish you good luck with your journey!

Can past lives be revealed in dreams or while writing poetry?


New Age

If you wrote poetry all the time as you state, it must have come easily to you. You could have gone into what is referred to as automatic writing.

See:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automatic_writing

As for the timing of other lives, this gets very very complicated. We perceive time as linear. When other lives are first revealed to us or we become aware of them, the very first instinct is to try to figure out how this fits into a linear timeline. Well, it doesn't. What got me through this hurdle was to learn about split incarnation. This past, present and future thing is only one way of perceiving what is around us.

As for "other people's" past lives that become know to me: this usually happens to me if I have also encountered that soul in another life setting. Interestingly, no matter how nice a person pretends to be in this life, if I had a distrust for them in another life, I continue to pick that up in this life. I notice these folks to be very guarded, and I now realize why this is so. They give me the same feeling as when I encountered them in another life.

It is late, and I am not sure that I explained this very well. Hope it makes some sense.

Your second guessing could be coming from a physical condition in this life. Check into endocrine conditions, like thyroid problems or other. If you Google the symptoms for Hypothyroidism, for example, and you feel the symptoms simply don't fit, forget I said anything.

Thanks (Cheshire Cat). They did consider the allergy issue. He took shots for it for a long time. He is now free of the headaches, but other issues are turning up. May or may not be related to the headaches. Doctors are working on it. Looking at the BIG picture though (family history and all) his issues may end up being related. But nothing confirmed so far. Thanks again.
