Crazy dream and visions


Psychic and Paranormal

Hello @alexisw

I'm kind of late to this discussion, but I hope you don't mind if I share my views. Firstly though, you're are not crazy, though it always feels that way, when these 'things start happening'. You see, the physical world we live in is interconnected with a vast limitless ocean of existence, and in one point of this ocean is the physical reality we experience. Closely relate to this physical reality is an 'area' of space and time, astral projectors usually refer to it as The Real-Time Zone. Most report that the RTZ often seems more vivid and lucid than the day-to-day reality we live in. It's possible to channel, tunnel and project within the RTZ. Sometimes, when someone projects into the RTZ, people in the waking world can see translucent apparitions, even body doubles. High level mystics and psychics have been known to be able to project their physical likeness to far-away places, yet that is quite a high-level ability. A not so rare ability is the ability to tunnel-vision through the astral, whether the RTZ or perhaps higher astral realms. Some people have this ability to do this at will, while some have this ability happen seemingly at random. When using this ablity, should they look at the RTZ, they will see vividly a scene that is happening somewhere else around the world, perhaps somewhere in the remote past, even somewhere in the future. Now the future is influenced by the realm of possibilities, still, what they see is possibly something that is most likely to happen.

If the seer, on the other hand, looks at the higher realms, he will see visions that are increasingly abstract the higher he goes. Most dreams take place in these realms, realms slightly higher the RTZ, perhaps we can refer to this as the dream realms. These dreams realms are places where you can train, explore concepts, even use as a meeting point between realms, for instance as a half-way point between your main consciousness and perhaps a guide entity. Dreams or visions from these realms are more symbolic than visions from the RTZ. This is where some interpretation is required. Usually these messages are received in dream forms, still ,it is quite possible to receive them as waking vision or even in the between state, almost like a day-dream.

Alexisw, for some people, prior to having an awakening of the inner potential, it is common to have dreams that have a theme of 'armageddon', 'world wars' and 'global destruction'. From one perspective, these dreams are telling you that your 'world' is coming to an end. We can also see it as a particular 'reality' or 'world view' coming to an end. Perhaps due to increased and enhanced abilities to perceive, your inner self is planning to shed past beliefs and paradigms and adopt new ones. It's a very good process, an evolution of consciousness. You see, alexisw, what we choose to perceive shapes our paradigms which in turn shape our reality. From the reality we then perceive, we enforce, and fine-tune our paradigms. I have come across some groups that refer to this process as reality bending or perhaps we should simply call it choosing your destiny ;)

Houses usually indicate life, as in the life we experience. Being at your mother's house tells us that this is related to the origin or purpose of your life. The living room is where we meet people and conduct day-to-day activities. The back door can be seen as a private, personal entry point, as opposed to the front door where we receive guests. Lightning is shocking, yet interestingly, in your dream lightning is not only shocking but also ground shaking. Perhaps if we meld this into a sentence we can say that 'when you see as you turn to look internally, what you find may come to you as shocking in the intensity of truth and shake-up, perhaps even alter the beliefs that make up the foundations of your reality. As I see it, it's not a bad kind of shift, rather a preferred kind of shift, where you remember your original purpose / self and bring it into your day to day life.

What you notice around the world, after having this dream, is very much related to the dream. If you had nothing holding you back, what would you do about the world situation? How would you help to foster peace and understanding? How will you helps others to 'see' that we are in actuality the same people?

Akashic Record


Psychic and Paranormal

You are right, bill-walker. This whole universe is, in a way, the akashic records. Though the term akashic records is actually a concept, to bridge the linear understanding of most humans and the non-linear, infinite, 'structure' of no-physical reality. Here, if we mention that physical reality is merely a drop of water in an infinitely expansive ocean of existence/non-existence, I wonder how it is received? My own experience with this stems from a projection (astral) experience where I came upon a 'concept', a situations of sort. In that experience, I was taken to a 'place' where the whole physical universe was a drop of water, dropping into the limitless ocean. The drop of water is/was in a continual dropping condition, the moment of dropping lasting infinitely, yet the drop is/was not static. The drop of water is the comparison between the infinite amount of information in the Akashic Records and The Limitless Ocean (sometimes referred to as the ocean of mercy). Normally, it would be quite hard to compare two different types of infinities, fortunately, human development in this focus (point) of time gives us the understanding of fractals. Existence is a huge kaleidoscope of existence/non-existence, and our physical reality is a fractal pattern / equation within that grand, limitless kaleidoscope. By itself, the physical universe can unfold into a never ending pattern / geometry, from the source pattern. Yet, All That Is is even more encompassing, creating patterns into infinite amounts of dimensions, and realities, in an infinite number of ways, permeating the infinitely small and encompassing the infinitely large.

As for heaven, astral travelers, particularly students of The Monroe Institute, have given various accounts of coming across realms in the higher astral that are similar to the various ideas of heaven found in the many traditions. These realms exist on a plane higher than the planes related to the physical. Yet, what is probably more interesting is that higher still, is a total non-physical reality that exists in a state of non-duality. This 'area' can be thought of as related to outer part of the inner area of a star tetrahedron, the part that is in contact with the outer triangular points. Here, all things exist as light, and there are no forms. Perhaps if we say heaven is the 'place' devoid of all suffering, and satisfies all desires, then perhaps, this 'area' too is suited to being called 'Heaven'.

Protection in known place of paranormal activity


Psychic and Paranormal

@hop-daddy

That's very good advice, and also that's very interesting about shungite. Knowledge gained from experience is definitely the best type. Thanks for sharing, Hop Daddy.

@cat-whisperer

There are actually quite a few things that you can do, in addition to carrying stones, you can try sending energy to the event. You can use Reiki or any other technique, and ho'oponopono too works well in directing energy. Initial connection to the event will give you a glimpse of how the event can possibly turn out, yet, as you work on sending the energy to the event, you will notice that how you feel about the event (or perhaps even see, remotely) will change considerably. You can also experiment with sending any other type of energy or frequency of light that you have been attuned to an event to find out its effects.

Trying to stop the empathy


Empath

The question, perhaps, is not why are you feeling bad, rather than, who is feeling bad. Perhaps, what you feel is not entirely yours, but 'shared'. What this means is that you have the possibility of influencing their emotions, energy, thought, and even beliefs in subtle ways. What you are doijg right now is perfect, absorb good vibration everywhere you can, and spread these to where you are guided to. Empaths are amazing conduits of energy, and playing this role well is not just transformative for the empath, also for the people around them.
There are many characteristics of light, and here is one that I have observed: like electricity, light follws the path of least resistance. In other words, light loves to flow. An empath who is openly condusive to light will find that a lot of light will flow through them. The amount of light that flows through them is related to the amount of light they in turn give out. So there is a balance here, but not as in a see-saw kind of balance, but a spinning gyroscope kind of balance. With time and practice, giving and receiving light becomes the same. Giving, and receiving emotions become one. To give is to receive, and to receive is to give.
So, now, something more practical. In the field there is really not much time to think so being prepared is important. As such, practice is key, meaning, the more you do it, the better you will be at it. Let's say you are with some people who are projecting 'negative' energy after you responded to them. Perhaps at this time it's good to remember the feeling that everything is alright. It might help to imagine that everything's ng is alright and really feel that feeling. At this point, its quite alright if it feels fake. Just fake it til you make it, hehe. Actually, what's happening is, as you are projecting positive energy, these people are perhaps also projecting their negative energy. Cleanse, with the feeling of 'its okay', and/or any release technique and priject the positive energy again. You might notice that this time, the negative energy might have dissipated somewhat. By simple repetition, eventually the energies will have dissipated comfortably.
Keep in mimd a few thing though. Firstly, never aim to chajge anyone, that really isn't our job. Whether they want to vhange is entirely their choice, we merely help provide an atmosphere that supports positive change. This is providing space for change. Secondly, always look after number one. This may sound selfish outwardly, but really it means we focus on making ourselves better, on keeping our vibrations positive and not on changing anything outside ourselves. As you know, we have little control on exterior things. Yet our own vibrations, that is 100% within our power, plus it's 100% our responsibility. So, gently maintain focus on where your power is. Thirdly, know that it is very much a game. Life is a serious game, so take it playfully and seriously at the same time. Thoroughly enjoying the game is the best way towards victory.
So, apologies for the long post, but really do give this a try. I'm curious to hear feedback and perhaps one or two war stories.

*small note, some of the bad feelings can also come from subconscious beliefs that we acquired throughout our lives. Not to worry, these are conveniently cleared as we play the 'game'.

Trying To Interpret Feelings At A Funeral


Empath

That's an interesting article and a valid opinion piece. Though it's an opinion piece, I wouldn't say it's not true, rather it is quite true and clarifies a lot of things. It is often quite perplexing to explain the question of those who 'move over'. In actuality, the question is not perplexing at all, though it is quite complex. And, when things are complex, it is best to simplify by changing angle, perspective, and/or focus. So let's change perspective. For most people, they/we view time as linear, for that is how science views time. Science views time in a linear fashion because that how science evolved initially, as linear records written on pieces of paper. Paper is, as we can easily ascertain, very linear. The physical world we live in however is anything but linear. It is linear to those who wish to view it as such, yet it can be non-linear for those who wish it as such. We will perceive what we wish to perceive, for Reality works in fractals. Time is in fractals, nature us in fractals, energy is in fractals. Mystics of the past have talked about the kaleidoscopic universe. In 'time' mainstream science will catch on with M theory and string theory, which seemingly talk of the same thing, just different aspects of the same.
So how does this all relate to the story of the dead? Well first, no one moves anywhere when they die. There is no here/there, these are perceptions. Secondly, no one is 'here', no one is anywhere, place is a conception. It is very 'true' in this reality, don't get me wrong. To function well within this reality requires good mastery of time and place. Just that as it relates to the dead, time and place do not mean as much as they do to physical human. Time and space also mean little to the astral traveller or mystic, only as much as is required to function in this reality.
So, what does mean much? Well, emotions and beliefs mean a lot more than places in time. When we tune into a particular memory, it is usually by tuning into particular emotions or vibrations. That is also how events relate to each other. Time is meaningless, emotions however are maningful. Without an event, a particulr date is meaningless. Because of the emotional intensity if an event, a date gains meaning. It is around these meanings that everything else is arranged. For instance the Kennedy assassination is very meaningful, it touches many people. We now arrange events that lead up to and are affected by this particular event.
Funerals, are mostly quite meaningful. At funerals, we dedicate memory to the recently deceased. From another perspective, what we are doing is attuning a particular place to the vibrations of the deceased. It becomes a focal point connected to that person's particular energies. Of course this does not mean that that particular person's energies are located there. It just means that its easier to connect to the energies of that person from that partucular place. On that note, memorials can be particularly interesting. Memorials do not necessarily contain the bodies of the remembered. Sometime they are simply plaques or small structures. Still, because of the focusing done over time, by close friends and relatives, memorials act as gateways to the energies of the remembered. Sometimes more so than at their actual graves. Books, I have found, can act in much the same way, and this can be interesting for those who want to explore.
So here, I am acknowledging both what Erin wrote, yet also what Karen wrote above. Both are quite true when taken into perspective. Although when Erin mentions 'merely symbolism', I do wonder, for symbolism is a central part of attuning and perhaps the adjective 'merely' is less relevant. Perhaps merrily would fit better, 'merrily symbolism'.

Trying To Interpret Feelings At A Funeral


Empath

@hop-daddy
That's also correct, I have that feeling also. It really is a good example of the workings of attraction and synthesis. The situation, the people, the feelings of some of the dead, they all got together. And this is where the priest is the main point of interest. In that moment, he cleared some of the anxiety that gathered there. Perhaps he is a conscious empath, or perhaps he is just very spiritually aware, or maybe all this happened unintentionally, yet an evolution of emotions happened. Sparks of higher vibrations are spreading across time, space, realms and dimensions. This evolution reminds me of transcendental meditation, where its not about trying to constantly be at peace, but to easily return to peace whenever needed. The more you get a chance to return to peace, the better you are at returning to peace.

@hop-daddy
Sorry for your loss, she must have been an amazing person.
As I read this, I felt a sort of deja vu, hehe, it feels like we already had this conversation. Its worth a repeat still, this conversation is a good one.
Hop Daddy, your radar is quite fine. I believe most of what you picked up was from one of the dead. Probably the poor soul felt a lot of anxiety in his final moments. If you were standing on his grave, then that would deepen the tuning, much like if you made physical contact. Plus, of course your initial thoughts of having to stand on a grave might have some influence as well. I've had some experience at graves myself, and it's very interesting what you can pick up.
Btw, that priest sounds like a very interesting person. I wonder if he whispers to the dead too.

Cosmic disturbance


Empath

Hi @lightstorm
It's actually hard to figure out exactly what it is, because there are a multitude of entities lurking in the astral. But if you're feeling anxiety, then it best to practice on grounding and shielding. Bringing in the wrong vibrations into a projection can attract undesired results. There have been stories of people being taken over, not to scare anyone, just be cautious and take the proper prepratory steps to astral travel.
There is only ever one spirit you would want to let in, and that's your own higher self. When it comes in, there is an overwhelming sense of calm, peace, love, bliss, and you would recognize it.

Any Advice On Overcoming Bad Luck?


Empath

@hop-daddy
How your situation resolved is exactly what was needed. Life situations rise and fall, yet if we can maintain our inner core, our awareness and connectedness to god, life situations are little more than mini movies. Prayer is a wonderful spiritual practice and really we should have a habit of conversing with God, to be with god and feel with God always, 24/7.
As for kundalini, some people say it is because of intense yogic practice or extreme phtsical trauma. This can be true, however it is also true that people get kundalini awakenings through intense study (eureka moments), music (like Mozart) , emotional trauma, pursuing one's passion or simply living a calm peaceful life. Kundalini actually means to awaken the true potential of the human. There is a similar concept in Taoism and buried within Christianity. In Christianity it's about union with Spirit, in other words union with God, or to be one with god. In Europe, there was a man, Jacob Boehme, who live a very normal, although devout life. One day, as he was looking at a beam of light, a realization came to him, and it awakened something within him. In Europe, much later, there was another man, Einstein, who pursued his passion through intense research and though. One day, he too had an experience looking into a beam of light. He too had something awaken within him. His soul awakened. Your past experiences are not wrong, you are not wrong. You are going towards the light, just that everyone goes in their own unique, special way. Jnana Yoga means union with knowledge or connection to knowledge. In the book it lists sudden knowledge and arising of deep questions as the symptoms. This is part of what I perceive so far. Now that you are actively pursuing clarity, I believe this can become a reality. Perhaps you have considered being a consultant, in which case, such a career would be in alignment.

p.s The book is one person's opinion or perspective, I'm much more interested in the truth that you will eventually bring out.

Wondering if you got a chance to check the book, biology of kundalini. Did you find the chapter on symptoms, especially Jnana Yoga, interesting?
Anyway, wanted to share a video I recently saw on youtube. In the video, Jeffrey talks about empaths halfway through the video. Perhaps it's an interesting watch for fellow empaths, so heres the link:

Any Advice On Overcoming Bad Luck?


Empath

I recently came across a book that talks about kundali, its symptoms, how to get through it comfortably and how to deal with the aftermath:
http://biologyofkundalini.com
The link is a free version of the book.
I haven't finished reading it yet, but I thought it was worth sharing either way, perhaps could bring some good discussions.
There is also a free video/webinar by jeffrey allen, about how to deal with energy.
The course is called duality, there is a full version and a free version. In the free version, Jeffrey teaches an energy technique to deal with trapped negative energy and replace it with positive energy. I have tried this technique and it has produced fast results. Perhaps you can try this too.

Any Advice On Overcoming Bad Luck?


Empath

It is very possible to overcome past karma, and eventually be rid of all residue karma.
Not everyone needs to overcome their selves entirely, and not everyone will incarnate the same level of spirit. Basically the deeper the pain someone goes through, the higher the level of inner spirit that can possibly be brought forth. The initial inner light of realization is all that is required to turn the tide on luck and life.
Without boring with details, I will mention here that watching Dr Hew Len's video on Ho'oponono can possibly ignite that spark. Followed with diligent practice in 'cleaning', eventually much of the 'memories' that cause 'bad luck' can be cleared. It is not a fast method or a quick fix, but an on-going development. It is recommended to watch the videos repeatedly, as a 'remembrance' will occur. An easier method is to be in resonance with a 'master', yet each person will have to search for their own, if they have one.
There is a saying that cleanliness is next to godliness, and this is very much close to the truth. Marie Kondo uses tidying up as a method of therapy. Tidying up clears the mind, and cleaning purifies it. Henry Ford prioritized cleaning highly to ensure the success of his enterprise. Clarity is the key.
Never worry, for existence was built on certainties. Spend time daily, thinking of things that are definitely certain. Latch onto and anchor the feeling and vibration of certainty. Hold it as often as possible throughout the day, everyday. Eventually fears will fade, for fear and certainty (faith) cannot co-exist in the same space.
Once clarity is obtained, breathing becomes possible, and space is created.
(I wonder if anyone else noticed that Dr Hew Len's name also means 'Conform Sight (lenses) ', god's pun probably)

Strong sensations???


Empath

Good for you @tigerlily.

Seems your energy levels have heightened, so right now it's important to stabilize it to this level. First thing is, don't over do using abilities, but keep constant practice. What I mean is, don't start using your abilities to serve others just yet, it needs to stabilize first. Using it for yourself is fine, and good practice. Secondly, it's really important to ground and get comfortable. Thirdly, don't justify anything to anyone, hehe, just give any excuse you can. Trying to justify or explain these things is a trap that can cause a 'crash' and subsequent fallout. One thing you might begin to notice though is that as abilities develop, certain people tend to distance themselves, while certain other will become more open towards you. This is probably because of the change in your overall vibrations (and underlying beliefs), so you will start to repel some people you attracted before and attract people you did not before.

Professions for Empaths


Healers

Corey Easton:

I am graduating in a few days with a degree in Computer Science, but am being pulled to pursue my MSW in social work after I graduate. It is deff my calling a lot of empaths would run from this field because of struggles with their energy is in everyday experiences. If there is one thing I am good at in life is using my gift, and to be able to use in during my job 24/7 would be amazing. 


Congrats on your degree Corey and I think that a fine choice to go into social work. Sounds like the people you are going to work with are really lucky to have you. Plus, working to help others' well-being is fulfilling in itself. You get to share love with people and get paid for it, hehe, win-win.

Talking Weird Stuff


Psychic and Paranormal

@the-importance-of-being-jonny

Gautama The Buddha has been known to say that it is through illusions we encounter enlightenment. Illusions are the source of pain, and it is through pain and illusions the light comes through. There is a very similar idea in Christianity and many other religions.
Pain is the path of the prophets for prophets learn to transmute pain. There is no need to search for pain however, for each 'prophet' has enough pain for entire lifetimes. Prophets are chosen because of their potential to withstand pain, and keep a compassionate heart. Eventually a prophet will transcend pain and start transmuting with light. He will learn to fly with his wings.
Yet perhaps a prophet is more a rose than anything else. A rose, when crushed, spreads its perfume to the ones that crush it. A scent of freedom in a fleeting moment can become an avalanch of desire to liberate lives.
Blessed are the gentle, for they will inherit the earth were words of Wisdom itself.

I messed everything up


Empath

Hi calmidwester,
That's a really interesting story, still first of all, know that you didn't mess anything up. Something could have gone wrong, but nothing's gone wrong yet. The attraction you feel with your therapist is very understandable: you want to get to know each other. The law of attraction works by bringing similar people together. There is another law that tends to bring opposite people together. Part of the reason you feel so attracted to your therapist is because the two of you have so much in common. On top of that, he's probably quite spiritual, making him just more attractive to the spiritually inclined. Yet, I won't blame him, for what he feels. He's probably in pain and hoping maybe a new relationship could remedy that, until of course ethics get in the way. Hoorah for ethics. Likewise, no one can blame you for what you feel, it's absolutely natural. Still, to live a calm peaceful life some perspective need to be gained.
When we see only similarities, we tend to be attracted. When we see only differences, we tend to be repulsed. So, the easy way to start being less attracted to someone is to start noticing differences. I'm not saying to start hating someone, that just gets you into love/hate. I'm saying balance the similarities you see with the differences. This will neutralize the attraction and enable the relationship to be more stable and more healthy.
One good thing about admiring people is you learn to sincerely appreciate certain characteristics. There really is no need to feel guilty about admiring someone. Admire, appreciate and understand. Then once you're done appreciating the similarities, start to notice and appreciate the differences.
For those who have a partner, still there is no reason to feel guilty. Whatever you see in the person you admire, look for it in your partner. Sometimes there are so many obstacles in a relationship that its hard to find similarities by observing the partner. That's why the universe sent us this person we could admire. It's easier to find something we like in a fresh setting. Once we know what we like, simply look for it in our partner. We were obviously attracted to our partner before, so there must be a reason why. This method could really help to bring balance to that relationship.
Now I should summarize all this:
Understand there's no need to feel guilty.
Appreciate what you see and experience.
Then look for it in what you already have and appreciate that too.
Appreciate both similarities and differences.

Love and light ;)

Sense of Smell??


Empath

Interesting discussion. Clair-olfactory rarely gets much attention it seems, but yes, I do agree, it exists. I jave had experience before where people with certain emotions would give off certain smells. Negative emotions give off unpleasant odours, while positive emotions give off pleasant aromas. The way to recognize what the scents meant was either through coupling with the othe claires, most notably claircognizance, or by empathic observation.
It's a theory, but perhaps when you smell other people's smell on you, it might mean that their energy is still connected to yours. Try smelling after some energy clearing to see if clearing their energy also clears the smell.

Questioning The Empath-Narcissist Connection


Empath

@angel
Very good explanation, very well done.
I just like to add that balance is resonance, harmonic resonance. And the more people in resonance, the more people at peace with each other. They will become conscious of a oneness of all things. Eventually the number of conscious people (people with a conscience, hehe) will reach a critical mass, and an avalanche effect may unfold, possibly. No fears, no resentments means no more wars or suffering, possibly :).

Struggling Empath


Arts

@hop-daddy
That's a good story, I like how you transmuted what would otherwise be a bad day, into a good day.

@corey-easton
I think its great that you are working to help people get spiritual. With the shape of the world right now, spirituality is definitely in demand and supply really should try to catch up. Yet manifesting it into the world, we realize that a lot of things move on money. Once again this is just a transmutation, for money is just energy.
First of all, let's play around with a few words, lets exchange money for energy. So we take your sentence and it becomes 'Got so much love but no ebergy in the bank'. Take a while to ponder on that, is there anything that needs to be done? Lets take this a step further, love is energy and an energy source. So exchanging with love, we get 'Got so much love, but no love in the bank'. Doesn't it become simpler? It now just becomes a matter of putting some of that abundant love into the bank. Lets now change love with energy, since love is in fact a source of energy. So now, the statement become 'Got all this energy, but no energy in the bank'. Taking in all 3 statements, we can see that we need to transmute all that love into money, then put some in the bank.
Let's start with love, can you feel it all around? Do you feel it inside you? Do you radiate love like the sun? That's great. Now as you radiate that love to everything around you, see as they grow and eventually bear golden coins as fruits. Spend some time to visualize that. See all that gold, grown by love, just ripe for picking.
Now then, as you go through daily life, see everything in the form of money. I'm not saying that you need to know the cost of everything. What you want to do is see everything as if they are made out of dollar bills and gold coins. If possible, do this 24/7. Remember, everything comes from love energy, and energy can be transmuted into anything. Now we are just seeing it take the form of money and the shape of a table, or chair, or person. So, if someone asks if they are mafe of money, this is true the sense that money is energy. So do this consistently, see everything as money. Back when I was selling funds, my mentor told me to go out and see everything in the form of commissions. I believe it worked, because commissions were on my mind, and I developed a sort of sense to sniff out commissions.
Finally, theres a joke about jewish people where they will stop anything to pick up a coin. I actually tried this when I was broke. When I was broke, I decided I would go out and pick up every coin I came across. After a few hours, it seemed that I could more than survive just by picking up coins. That experience gave me an understanding that money, wealth and opportunies are all around but often overlooked. More importantly, my subconscious understood that too, and my money magnet turned on. The next day, I made some money, and even more in the days coming. Oh yes, the coins I picked up were enough to by a decent meal and a nice drink. They really lifted my spirits, and good spirits go a long way.
Ok then, all the best and have fun with transmutation.

p.s: I read your post about your dream, so really there's no need to worry about what you are doing right now. What you do right now will eventually lead to some other things. So just stay in the moment and follow the rainbow bricked road. Btw, rounded, 42 is the angle whereby light fans out into a rainbow.

Massage Points for Longevity and Health


Library of Light

Great post Bing!

Recently I have been having intense pain in parts of my body. After some research and experimentation, I concluded that foot massage is nothing short of magical for pain release. I have also tried the ear point for releasing stress. I find that it is very much like a stress release valve. Massage or rubbing with stones releases stress and heaviness amazingly fast.

The Zu San Li spot sounds quite interesting and I'm looking forward to try that one out.

Thanks for the great post Bing.

Seeing Faces And Numbers Everywhere


Psychic and Paranormal

@hop-daddy
I see that you say the images pop up more often when you are filled with other people's energy. When this happen, you feel anxious and your empathic abilities seem to increase. That is a good observation, and what that could mean is that an excess of energy is triggering your inner mechanism. You used the word overloaded, and that fits quite well. When you are overloaded, an imbalance occurs, causing anxiety. Anxiety happens when the root is unbalanced. Expanding / developing the root will enable the overall system to handle heavier burdens. The images frequently happen when there is an excess if energy, this tells us that some of that excess energy is 'leaking' to the upper senses. Unfortunately since the energy used is 'leaked' lower energy and not refined energy, it causes distorted images. These distorted images happen when the internal 'image maker' receives garbled information. This is much like what happens if you feed an electronic circuit with erratic power, it will produce erratic results. Thus we have gargoyle images. Bear in mind, at that time, the root is overloaded, thus anxiety will tend to influence any inner interpretation.
You might observe that this is very different from images you see during meditation. Meditation refines your energies, suitable for use in the finer upper senses.
I have had experiences where I could see 'videos' showing on peoples foreheads. These happen when I was anxious. When I ask the people certain questions, I find that the videos show near exactly what they were thinking and that was shocking, to say the least. The ability however eventually lead to instability. It was many years later when I finally understood. Looking back, I might have been able to develop the ability if I maintained balance. I am not very keen on having such abilities though, so all's for the best.
Stable ability to connect, receive messages and send messages however does seem quite beneficial, much like how smart phones are able to provide additional information on the go.
As for the meanings of the gargoyles, it means distorted information, so be careful of your inner stability. One thing to try here, I feel, are green stones. Green jade is exceptionally good in releasing energies and transmuting at the same time. Green jade can be worn over the chest like an amulet, or on the wrist as a bracelet. When feeling uneasy, rub the green jade around the spot where there is uneasy energy. After a few minutes it's possible to feel a somewhat warm current flowing. Some people feel it as inner electricity. This tells us that excess energy has been transmuted and flow is returned.

Sound Healer and Shielding


Empath

Hi @bunnigirl
Food is very important, as what you eat eventually becomes you. First of all, vitamins are important, especially Bs and Ds. Furthermore, since you are doing healing work, having enough water is important. Besides plain water, try teas and infusions. I do recommend green tea (try jasmine green tea), pennywort tea and juniper berry tea. Green tea detoxes, and taken with some moderate caffeine, like puerh tea is effective in keeping the mind clear. Pennywort is good even if you don't do any healing. Its great for anxieties and helps circulation. Juniper berries is great for digestion and bloating. Wgen doing healing, bloating can occur as we absorb any negative energy. Juniper berry tea help here. Besides tea, watercress is good in healing and recuperation. It is the healing food of choice for hippocrates. Besides these, honey and olive oil. You can even mix honey and olive oil and put it in your hair if you want to try. Also, its good to put a pritective layer of olive oil on your skin. It not only protects against dryness, but also absorption of negative energy. Before going to bed, rub some olive oil on the soles of your feet, on top of the feet, the ankles, your shins and lower legs, until below the knees. Also, as a healer, being able to release energy is quite important. Rubbing with a green jade foot scraper helps release blockages and trapped energy.
Other than that, with sound healing, it is quite possible to do healing with energy moving one way, from you towards the patient, thus little need for you to absorb their energy.

Seeing Faces And Numbers Everywhere


Psychic and Paranormal

Hi @hop-daddy
Numbers are always an interesting topic. Number have told us a great deal about 'secrets'. Pythagoras delved into numbers to find meaning to union, love, beauty, perfection and manifestation. There is gnosticism in the agnostic nature of numbers. Numbers are bare apparent, yet are also apparently mysterious.
As above so below. The hidden, the manifest, the first and the last are all one. The father, the son and thw holy spirit are one. Yet while 'He' encapsulates all, he is none of them singularly. They are merely faces/modes of 'he'.
Lets look at a projector doing its job. The image on the screen is the son, the beams of light from the projector is the holy ghost, and the image in the projector is the father. Yet he is not any of them, he is the essence of each. Not the projector, not the screen and not the light individually. These are all faces that bring to light the inseparable unified essence. He is the fourth and the zero.
As above so below, as inside so too outside. Most time it is hard to discern our internal condition. Yet there is a very simple way, observe the external. Starting to see things, faces, numbers, within other things means that internally, we are starting to 'see' meaning within meaning. When I say starting, I mean that the process has started, has nit yet completed and is still moving towards completion. Once the process completes, there should have access to deeper insight. There should be an ability to read between the letters. A more complete understanding, a more direct understanding. As far as the process goes, there really is no worry, it will complete by itself. The only thing we need to concern ourselves with is that we are comfortable as the process unfolds. I think for you, hop-daddy, this is not a problem since you already understand the importance of fundamentals. Here fundamentals means grounding and cleaning.
One other thing that I'd like to take this chance to talk a bit about is the difference of energy between the lower chakras and upper chakras. The upper chakras use energy in forms finer and more subtle than the lower chakras. The heart chakra is where energy is refined for use by the upper chakras. It is possible to force-feed the upper chakras with coarser energy, this however will have detrimental side effects. What this means is that it is possible to turbo-boost clairvoyance, yet it will have side effects. The proper way is to refine energy, creating a supply of finer energy, suitable for higher chakra use, and ground the excess. In the seven chakra system, the heart chakra is the fourth chakra, counting from the crown or from the root. It is the middle chakra.
Observing and analyzing this system we can see that a stable way for spiritual development is to move from the root towards the upper chakra. This means that initially, life is about mastering survival after which comes pleasure, then achievements. Having acheived some level of success, a person then starts to understand, and accept, becoming tolerant, this is the heart chakra. Having developed the heart chakra, energy is transmuted, whether consciously or subconsciously for use by the upper chakras. In developing the throat chakra, a person starts to speaks out, expressing views in eloquent ways. With the third eye chakra a person becomes contemplative, naturally reflecting on the lesson of life and gaining insights, possibly delving into philosophy. It is possible that some people jump stages. It is even possible that some people start from the crown. Any which way they want to live their life is fine. Just that starting from root to the crown is quite stable in all stages.

@just-stevie
The uderlying concept, as above so below, is valid here. There is an inner development. Yet whereas hop-daddy is with a 'steady' 4, yours is probably a more 'exciting' ride. There are 3 ways to approach this, enjoy it, change it or 'speak'. Any choice is fine, exciting is enjoyable if you can handle it ;) .

Hello


Empath

Hello finding peace.
You know what they say, life begins at 40.
First off, you are not an ugly person. Like gemstones, its hard to see how pretty they are before you cut and polish them. Having said that, every gemstone is beautiful but once cut and polished. That's much like how people are, some are quite polished and some still need to be polished.
The thing about the beauty of gemstones is not the gem itself, but how it interacts with light. Likewise, a 'beautiful' person has a way of interacting with life. When you shine intense light on a polished gem, it sparkles. So too it is with polished people, they sparkle in the intensity of life. So, just remember, you are not ugly. Perhaps your past actions seem ugly, this is true, because it is a reflection from an unpolished self. If you just polish yourself, you will see how beautifully life can sparkle through you.

The key is to be consistent. Spend some time daily in nature, relaxed and in the moment. Do this daily for 21 or 40 days and your inner vibrations should align more strongly.
The Buddha has been known to say that a person who is aware of his breath for an hour or more is already enlightened. Who knows, perhaps you will achieve higher levels of enlightenment from your daily time in nature.

How do you perceive others emotions?


Empath

@hop-daddy
Yes, I do notice that energy. Sometimes its interesting to explore that energy, and it seems the energy does affect people in the room. Most time I will help the energy clear by moving my hand in a circular motion, as if to help the energy flow. Sometimes I feel that I have to do something more, like brush the room, wipe any dust and tidy up a bit. Sometimes I sit or stand somewhere in the room and feel or have a small conversation with the room. Interestingly, it seems Dr Hew Len, Joe Vitales friend and Ho'oponopono mentor, interacts with rooms and energy too, though it seems at a much more advanced level.

How do you perceive others emotions?


Empath

Perceiving emotions is probably one of the most fundamental aspects for empaths.
For me, I'd say it's more like experiencing the emotions as if they were my own. I do regularly ask the question, where did this emotion come me from. Yet, I find that it is more powerful to couple that question with the question: 'Is this emotion helping me in any way.' Then the choice is simply to absorb the emotion or to just let it float on by. Sometimes it is preferred to absorb another person's anger or agitation slightly. It is not that we want to become angry people. Rather, we want to understand their point of view better. Having our emotions more aligned to theirs gives better comprehension and perspective of any issue they are trying to bring to attention. When we absorb, we also share in their ability to respond. For instance, in facing an angry child, when we absorb slightly, we then have the option to delve deeper into the emotion. We might find that perhaps there is some fear underneath the anger that they are feeling frustrated with. We can then 'lend' our own understanding of that fear as a response.
Now this is not to say that everyone should be open to emotions all the time. Rather, for most, it might be perfect to have a barrier of sorts. Perceiving your skin as that barrier is a perfect example. This mode enables someone to do certain tasks, while still being sensitive enough to the emotional landscape to respond well to any coming circumstance. When I mention emotional landscapes, I mean that sometimes the person we contracted the emotion from is not the actual source of the emotion. Many times, the person we are in contact with probably contracted the emotion from someone else. This could go on until we find the eventual 'ground zero'. In instances like this, the 'explorer' mode is very helpful.
Living a more emotionally balanced life for empaths can be as simple as becoming adept in switching between these two 'mode'. In fact this should be one of tbe first things covered if we ever get together to make an 'Empath's and Intuitive's Body of Knowledge'.

Hi there now I've been lost for a while, can you help me?


Request a Reading

Hi there friend
First of all, know that you can hold a candle to anyone you so wish. Perhaps they won't see it, yet you can hold it up all the same.
Sometimes, to feel comfortable we put up boundaries and walls. So that we can move freely inside our homes, we put up sturdy walls that protect us from the inquisitive gaze of passer-bys. We put up heavy curtains and glazed windows so that we can rest peacefully in privacy. Just remember, curtains can be drawn to enjoy the views. Windows can be opened to let in the cheerful breeze. And doors can be unlocked so you can enjoy the outdoors and you can invite loving friends to your indoors.
And finally, sometimes after a long day, it's just so nice to prepare a hot, steamy bubble bath. Just immerse yourself in relaxing waters while the bubble bath cleanse you. Then you relax, recuperate and look forward to a new day.
Likewise it is in life. It is perfectly fine if we erect boundaries around ourselves. Sometimes we need some seclusion. And since it is us who put up the walls, we can just as easily put in doors. We don't have to take down whole walls until we are ready. Whatever we have been through, there is healing. A cleansing and return to our original selves. Like a hot bath, cleansing and healing can be quite enjoyable. And after healing, it is time to dream, to take in the vigors of life. To expand our views and perspectives as we process and learn from all we've been through. And thus thus we start to create a new day better than the last.
Lots of love and light to you, soul114-4 ;) .

p.s: no soul is ever lost, they are just still on adventures or coming home from adventures.

Hi @merin-eliz
I can understand your dilemma. Something that I have been telling my friends for years is the kingdom is given to those who let go of the kingdom. More specifically, the advisors regularly have more power than the one on the throne. It is usually the agenda of the advisors that are brought to fruition. Yet positions of power are enticing, are they not?
Perhaps I should go more in depth about vibrations. Good vibrations is not just about feeling good. There is the need for proof of vibrations. Proof of vibrations could mean checks coming in the mail, a meeting with a person of influence or just about anything that is aligned with reachung your goals. Some people can sense and feel energies and it is easier for them to diagnose their state of vibrations. For a writer, an influx of energy would most probably manifest in the form of ideas for writing. For an orator, the energies would manifest in the form of an energetic speech. For a salesman, the energies would manifest in the form of attracting quality clients. These manifestations can in turn be converted into money, influence and so on. The art of transmutation is merely that of transmuting source energy to forms more usable.

Empath Parent/Empath Child Tips?


Empath

Hi @empathinboston
My father was an empath/psychic, my brother is a pretty strong empath and my children are all empaths too it seems.
When I was small, my father used to take us on outings regularly. Sometimes it was the seaside, sometimes to a secluded stream or waterfall, sometime to a nature retreat. I really felt at ease just sitting beneath the large expansive sky and being able to let my thoughts and imagination flow freely. My father really knew what he was doing.
One of my daughters had a habut of throwing really bad tantrums. Through dealing with her tantrums, I became more aware of specific channels where we empathucally share emotions. For instance, when she was in a really bad mood, I try not to look at her directly, for that seems to increase the absorption the anger in her. Also if she is screaming, then I wear earphones, for much the same reason. I then ground the emotions within her that are making her upset. It was also very important to let her absorb feelings of patience. For small children, its very difficult to explain concepts. It is much easier to broadcast those positive feelings and let them absorb them. A very good way is through hugging and positive conversation. So there are these two aspects, each important - cleaning negative energies and supplying positive energies. The cleaning part might be slightly more important initially.
A lot of people go through spiritual development with much pain and struggle. This was very much the same for me at one point. Under my father's guidance, it went quite smoothly. Yet when I started out on my own, I hit many bumps and even roadblocks. There are many systems that can really help. One of them is yoga. Not just the joga poses, but also the intellectual, energetic, and emotional aspects. Getting these in balance leads to a more blissful process. There is also a system hidden within Christian communities that very few know of. They are however very secretive and reclusive.
I find it very interesting that you mentioned Harry Potter. That is very much how it is for empaths. We need to honor who we are yet maintain some secrecy from those who are not ready to accept us.

Requesting a reading on what field to work in.


Request a Reading

Hi merin-eliz
First off, I think both Cheshire Cat's and Angel's reading are on target. I'd just like to say, don't worry about the money part too much. Money can be seen as a form of energy, so just open yourself up to all venues that allow money to come in. Angel sees someone older and grey haired, which can refer an older version of you. It can also refer to a version of you that is an expert in a field. This takes us back to the question of money as energy. When you do something you love, you are vibrant with energy. This energy you can initially use to perform your job really well. You might learn many things, which I am sure you will enjoy, maintaining and perhaps even enhancing your vibrations. With high vibrations come opportunities. Perhaps you will put your knowledge into the form of blogs, books and talks. People tend to notice those with high energy and people with high energy tend to attract people who can further their cause. Perhaps you will get the ears of those who have significant influence.
I agree very much with Angel that working with nature is very spiritual. It helps to balance the various aspects of your life and self, unlocking your potential to do much more than you previously felt possible.

Negative feelings surrounding one particular person


Empath

@calmidwester
I agree very much with you, Yes, you can do this ;), very much.

@cat-whisperer
Thank you. Softly said, yet deeply felt. I will have to stalk you to sample more of your energies, hehe.

@hop-daddy
As always, hop-daddy, you have the most intriguing, yet essential questions.
I decided to do a google search of the term, and found there was a book written that uses the term as its title. I haven't read the book, but it seems it's about telepathic mind-control, not exactly what I was referring to when I used the term myself, hehe. I guess to clarify, I would say psychic dominance refers to a 'natural' dominance over a dominion as opposed to psychic domineering. Much in the same way as a grizzly bear would be more dominant than say a bobcat, some people would have stronger dominance than others.
Each time two people meet, a small dance is initiated. Their energies mingle and their beliefs come into contact with each other. The one with stronger will or confidence usually comes out dominant. This process happens either consciously or unconsciously. Through this process, it is actually possible for an aware empath to influence the beliefs of a narc through methods that are not outwardly confrontational. Non-confrontational influence through subtle energy mingling. As for whether it is common or rare, I'd say that it is inherent everywhere, like rhe concept of gravity. It is just the we need to be more consciously aware of its workings, thus be able to utilize it in the most yniversally beneficial way.
I'd like to add that this 'battle for domimance' is not just between humans. It can happen that a person visits an emotionally charged building and is dominated by its energies. Or maybe a distressed person goes to a serene lake and is 'dominated' by its calming energies. In the latter case, that would mean that the lake aligns the person to its own calming energies. Quite a desirable effect.
I must admit, that I myself am still exploring and refining my understanding of this concept. Yet at times, I can't help but remember that Robert Bruce (the author) mentioned that there are super-psychics influencing the going-ons in the world. I guess we should hope that these supers have our best interests at heart.

Negative feelings surrounding one particular person


Empath

Hi, this is a very interesting topic, thanks for bringing it up. I wonder if you are familiar with the concept of psychic dominance and psychic landscapes. I am not going to go in-depth with the theories, just a basic outline if you will. The concept goes like this, whenever more than one psyche interact, there will be a collective consciousness between them. If the group consists of three people them this collective is shared by the three people. Usually, this collective is dominated by a one of the members either personally or through a subgroup of the collective. This ability to influence the collective consciousness is what is called psychic dominance. Sometimes this dominance happens consciously, sometimes it happens unconsciously. Hop Daddy for instance has strong psychic dominance, it is noticable ;) and quite intriguing.
Now let's focus on the collective of two people. When one of the two dominate the collective, this means that his/her thoughts and emotions dominate and influence the collective. This does not mean that each member directly feels the emotion or thoughts of the other. What they feel is the mixture of thoughts and emotional input accumulated over time during the relationship. So, working with this theory, it means that if we clean the collective consciousness of old emotions, it would make it harder for those situations to occur. If we do not clean it, then those situations (feelings) tend to surface. To gain dominance over this collective, simply build up your capability for psychic dominance, which is a variation of shielding. In other words, the more adept you are at shielding the stronger your potential for psychic dominance.
Now then lets get into more practical parts. @calmidwester we will deal here with the 'run-time' situation. Firstly, in the interaction, be aware of your own thoughts and emotions. Be particularly aware of the feelings of resentment and 'fear' of your partner being dishonest and holding back his feelings. Whats important here is that you do not react in the way that these emotion are triggering you to. Then, once that particular emotion has dissipated somewhat, try to input, with action (such as speech), your preferred emotion. This is responding. Now, if the emotion you are dealing with is resentment, what you should input would be tolerance. These two steps may take some practice. I do find that dealing with anxious babies is very good practice, and that it is easier than dealing with adults. It is much harder still when dealing with conscious psychics. Lets have a look at an example 'run' with a baby. Now then, the situation might be that the baby is crying and you are trying to calm him/her. As you pick them up, notice any anxiety. Delve deeper, notice if you are internally saying 'please stop' and feeling some frustration. Connect to this frustration. Now, tell yourself its okay. Tell the baby its okay. Don't force anything, don't force yourself to be calm, just be aware. Now notice the level of frustration, did it decrease? Just continue dissipating that energy of frustration until perhaps you can input some loving, calm energy, and by then the situation is dealt with remarkably, and people are praising your dexterity with infants.
Perhaps, additionally, as an aid, you can visualize emotion bars next to the person you are interacting with. These become more precise with practice and can be very convenient not just in diplomatic interactions, but also in negotiations and during any sales process. These visuals are a representation of underlying information your empathic senses gathered. Much like a monitor displaying information gathered by an MRI.
So wrapping up, just remember that if you want to, and are willing to be responsible, there are many methods that can help you achieve your goals. It is up to you to determine whether those goals are worthwhile and how much effort you will put into their realization. As for me, I would say that nurturing relationships are definitely top priority ;).
Cheers.

When life brings you lots of lemons


Empath

Oh yes, I wanted to mention somewhere else, but I'll mention it briefly here. Joker makes Batman and Batman makes Joker. For everyone we meet or bring into our life, there is actually something in them that we 'need'. For instance, for the empath, the narc gives ample lessons of how to manipulate, insulate and such. Let's change this slightly. Reword manipulate to transmute and reword insulate to shielding. These are actually areas that empaths need to work on the be more complete or reach higher levels of perfection. As for the narc, the narc can learn a lot from the empath, unfortunately, it's not that simple. The narc will probably need to absorb from the empath. So here this experience can be like sour grapes. Yet if mixed properly, even sour grapes can make really good wine. And the developed empath is that catalyst to make such wine.

When life brings you lots of lemons


Empath

Hi guys,
You know, when life keeps giving you lemons, you have a few choices. One is that you can turn them into lemonade, another is that you can stop biting into the lemons. Maybe you don't want to make lemonade, that's fine, just remember, you also don't need to bite into the lemons life gives you. If it's life then it means there's abundance. So that means there are also strawberries, gooseberries, plums, apples, everything. Don't look for strawberries in lemons, just understand that if life can give you lemons, it can also give you strawberries. Only that if you're busy biting into the lemon, you probably squinted your eyes somewhat that its hard to notice where you can get those strawberries. So, take a pause, and if you notice what you are given is a lemon, don't bite into it. Let it go, leave it in that pile for someone who wants to make lemonade. Instead, make your way to those fields of ripe strawberries or apricots or raspberries or whatever you want to try for the moment.
There are times, when you are in as part of the farms where everyone is sampling lemons. That's quite alright, again you don't have to take what is handed to you. Its okay, its just a matter of preference. Just make your way to those strawberries, and maybe hand out some to those who've had a bit too much lemons themselves.

Empath Related Illnesses


Empath

@lotusfly

Really glad you enjoyed them :). You're welcome.

@lucky-seven

I googled healing, and google gave me this:

the process of making or becoming sound or healthy again.

"the gift of healing"

Google also listed some synonyms for healing and one of them was 'ease'. And that synonym fitted perfectly, since the opposite of healing would then be dis-ease. So healing would be to rid someone of any disease that afflicted them, to make them comfortable again. Yet what does it mean to be comfortable, what is being comfortable for? Perhaps its to be comfortable being human so that we can do what humans do. One of the things humans do particular well is to expand, explore and discover, to exercise our freedom in as many was as we can. It is an inherent human thing to be everything we can be. If at all possible we probably wouldn't acknowledge any limits. Perhaps it is possible. And perhaps to make it possible, we only need to constantly return to our natural state of being, that of being free and united in love. Maybe healing isn't about righting wrongs but about constant replenishment in order to fulfill our human appetite to perpetually expand our horizons.

Centuries ago, when the great explorers undertook their adventures, courage was needed, without question. For even if they didn't face 'savage' and sometimes hostile locals, even if they could face vicious storms and miraculously avoid life-threatening illnesses, they would still have to face the weariness of the journey. That was a tax that was inherent in any adventure. If they, and us, ever succumb to a fear of that tax, would we ever see East, West and Middle Earth come together? Yet today, while we see a global map perfected by centuries of cartography and hundreds of satellites, we still see political maps where communities are divided by unseen forces. Unseen, yet not un-felt. Truly, a lot of exploration still needs to be done, thus courage is needed. Courage and a lot of healing.

Courage is a product of trust, to trust that anything can be healed, even the most tragic of traumas. With this trust, an explorer can courageously set forth, even face the danger of the deepest traumas, to bring back the light of truth and bring her community to further enlightenment. To hurt and then to heal is how we realize that trust. Trust is a light that shines in the darkest of caves. Deep unwavering trust is like the sun, brighter than even the day itself. Healing is the rising of the sun. And the night is merely a time to reflect, patiently awaiting the sunrise.

When we are free, we are courageous, we are brave, we are full of life. When we are free, we exercise free will. There really is no wrong. It is simply a state of being. Perhaps we may do something that brings us out of that state. Yet trust that there is healing for anything you might encounter and you can easily return to that state. When you understand this, you will know there is no need to fear the unknown, no need to fear the dark. Thus your fear is healed and you become free of it. Don't fear the journey, but complete it, heal the mis-takes, choose your own cards. As an empath, you are an explorer. Isn't each and every empath undertaking a great and exciting journey to the centre of their being? I wonder what wondrous stories and wisdom you will bring back to fascinate your community.

When you ask about the solar plexus, yes, its true this particular chakra can channel to the spiritual level. According to some systems, when a person leaves this physical plane, his energies could leave through two main pathways, the solar plexus or the crown chakra. It could actually be more comfortable for some to exit via the solar plexus. The solar plexus is also a good repository for energy, an energy battery of sorts. According to some systems, there are 114 chakras and 72,000 nadis. Most modern interpretations don't mention this, and focus instead on the essential 7. This is actually a good way to go about it, since in most cases adequate work needs to be done on the essential 7 before a practitioner starts to become aware of the other chakras. Unfortunately, some interpretations oversimplify and perhaps some information is lost in translation. Fortunately, you do not have to search far for this information, just search within, it's all there. The whole universe is there, waiting to be explored.

When you talk about the future, it's nice to know that there are lovely events waiting for you. I'm quite sure you are much deserving of some lovely events. Cherish the moments and enjoy them fully. Replenish, rejuvenate and stock up on the good times. Don't worry about the sad events coming later, perhaps you will master your karma and change your destiny, like a starship changes destination. Talking about starships and futures, there was this really great movie that came out end of last year, titled "Passengers".  In it the characters played by Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt find that sometimes the best planned out purpose fade in comparison to the purpose they find in the moment.

As for your first question, you know I can't answer that. A good magician never reveals his tricks ;).

Lots of love and light everyone.

Cats


Animal Empaths

I've been meaning to talk about cats for some time, ever since I read that post about connecting with small children. Yes, definitely there is an unspoken language with cats or any animal. There are cats that say a lot, there are cats that are mystical and there are cats that are healers. The healer cats are pretty amazing.

Empath Related Illnesses

@calmidwester
I'm glad thay are of help, though I can't take full credit for it, I am merely channeling the energies prevalent in these forums, energy contributed by each member here ;)

@lucky-seven
Those are really good questions, thanks for asking.
Freedom is a necessity of love, while love is the essence of life. Love is truth. If something doesn't free you, then perhaps that something is weak in love. There is a saying, the best of frirnds is one that sets you free.
So, first, let's talk about free will. Free will simply means this, that you are free to point the power of your will in any direction you desire. Take the as universe an example, the universe does what it wants, while being aware of and taking into account everything. The universe's will is free of any doubts, worries, or fear. The universe is not held back or shackled. When we are aligned spiritually, then we will be like the universe, an image of the universe, free to point our willpower any which way, not on a whim but according to conscious direction. The free person does not play dice with her life, she doesn't play pick a card. She knows exactly what she wants and manifests it. She is an image of the universe and is in clear empathy with the universe.
Secondly, what I'm suggesting is a holistic approach. Its very hard to heal, focusing on just one aspect, yet its very easy to heal with an integrated approach. However, to heal, first take out the glass shard from the wound., them clean the wound. An emotional trauma is like a glass shard still stuck in a person's emotional body. Any physical healing done without realeasing the trauma merely heals the physical symptoms while leaving the underlying cause unaddressed. So here, the best way is a holistic approach.
When talking about Steve Jobs, I can't really say anything for certain, for the hypothetical illustration was merely meant as an example to elaborate a concept. Yet, working on that concept, I would say that Steve Jobs was quite happy with what he's achieved and probably wanted some time out to rest and recuperate. Those who can travel have probably come across these rest areas.
Yes, taking a wrong path is 'self'. In actuality there are no wrong paths in an absolute sense. Wrong paths only exist in relative sense. For instance, say if someone wanted to be an engineer, yet because of some 'mistake' he instead studied architecture. He then proceeds into his career but after moving here and there, he finds himself in PR. After a few years, he discovers that he enjoys his work very much and wouldn't trade it for the world. Only after the fact does he realize there were no mistakes. The flow will go whatever way it wants, its only promise is that he who chooses will find happiness and fulfillment. There is really no other way to happiness. It is a choice, everyone is free to flow or not to flow. To flow means to excercise that choice, even if the choice is not to flow. Not going with the flow just means that the person will encounter staggering resistance, but he will feel free and he will be happy. Maybe not successful, but happy and fulfilled. It is ony in resisting the flow that someone comes across pain and suffering. So, if someone want to be happy, fulfilled and successful, choose to go with the flow, and they will perceive as if everything is going their way. They will also feel very alive because what's happening is out of choice.
Lucky seven, sad, traumatic events are the things that makes one lose purpose in life. It takes one out of the state of living life purposefully and in a meaningful way. So, if you had the chance, would you willingly choose to heal those wounds? What does it mean to you to have those wounds healed? What kind of life are you looking forward to once those wounds are healed? Sometimes, when someone has big dreams, seemingly magical powers come to them, are you willing to accept the responsibility of those powers? Understand that life after healing can never be the same as the life before healing, and that you will possibly have to let go of all previous preconceived notions of life.
Right now, the focus is not whether you have manifested your life purpose. Rather the question should be: 'Now that it is apparent that I still have some life left, what can I do to make the life that I have left meaningful and purposeful'. And, if you suddenly manifest that purpose in a speedy amount of time, then simply manifest a new purpose. Look forward to a life where you consistently create meaning. Live life fully.
When you are tired, it is quite ok to rest and relax. Recuperate. When you are tired, then it is time for some healing. You can choose not to heal if you want to, but it will be hard to manifest. Sometimes some people prefer hard challenge. Life is not life if you don't have fun. So, as long as it's fun and enjoyable, its quite okay to take on heavy burdens. If it's no longer fun and enjoyable, perhaps its time to rest. As they say, tomorrow's another day.

Empath Related Illnesses


Empath

I should add that sometimes, questions are the answer. To be more exact, empowering questions are the answer.
In any challengong situation, we should ask ourselves: how is this situation helping me or what is good abput this situation.
Another good question to ask is when something good happens, ask, what could happen that can make this even more wonderful. Then brace yourself, for there is a limit to the amount of joy that you are willing to feel before disbelief sets in.
So these are two simple questions that help to make life magical. Yet, please explore, for there are many more questions we should be asking ourselves throughout our lives.
A phrase I heard once goes like this: 'If you don't like the answers you receive, ask better questions.'
Life answers our questions every single moment. Perhaps we should make a habit of asking questions, the answers to which will bring enjoyment and fulfillmemt.

Empath Related Illnesses

@lucky-seven
In the taoist system, it is believed that every organ is associated with certain emotions and virtues. If a certain emotion is unbalanced or a certain virtue lacking, the organs associated with them will start to catch disease. Left alone, they will start to deteriorate and cause chronic diseases. A holistic approach to this would be to heal on the physical, emotional and spiritual level. To heal on the physical level, that's where we take supplements and enact a healthy lifestyle. On the emotional level, we build relationships and work towards good causes. On the spiritual level however, it is abput living a purposeful life. This is where it gets confusing for some. Living a purposeful life is not about living life for some purpose or cause, but to live life in a way that makes it meaningful and purposeful. For instance a person may live his whole life striving to advance a cause, yet at the end of his life, when he looks back at it, he may ask what was the point of all this. Another person however,may live a simple, perhaps zenlike life, but finds meaning in every moment. When they eventually look bavk on their life, they marvel at how intricately wonderful it had been, that they wouldn't have wanted it any other way. This kind of life is the life after healing. Belief that you too can have a life like that is essential to the healing process. Lucky seven, when I mentioned the songs and stories, what I meant was the dreams that vibrate and pulsate within, each moment knocking on the door of your heart, asking for it's moment in the light. This dream is different for everyone, at their essence they have a distinct similarity, that they are inspirational, that they have spirit. For one person it may be to write books, for another it could be to get on stage and orate, and for another still, it could be to plan and build a most magnificient work of architecture. When people free themselves to live miraculous lives, amazing things happen.
Lets look at this from another angle. If you were praying to god or the universe to give you another chanve at life, what would you promise? Would you promise to make life easier for the poor? Perhaps you would promise to make sure the people around you feel loved. Perhaps you might promise to take out the ideas you have put away in a box, and make the dreams become reality. Let's imagine that Steve Jobs promised god such a thing. Lets imagine Steve Jobs asked god for another chance at life, so that he could bring mobile connectivity to everyone on the face of this earth. Then, once he's done that, god is free to take him away, the vision fulfilled. Its a romantic repainting for sure, yet sometime we should ask ourselves, if we asked god for another chance in life, what would we promise in return, what would we want to achieve that would make that chance meaningful.
We are the painters on the canvas of life, we are the composers of fabric of destiny, we are the makers of dreams, once we realize that, then truly the world is our oyster.
The successful artist does not struggle, they are free to be as poor as they want or as rich as they want. Every empath is an artist, we absorb the colors of life on the brush of our souls. Thus, what reality will we paint with it?

Empath Related Illnesses


Empath

@lucky-seven. Yes, well done lucky seven, I do think you have succeeded in becoming more receptive and acceptive of your empathic gifts. ME is just one of possibly many mystery illnesses that many empaths face. I agree with you and you perceived right, though she says she has hope, yet there is an underlying sadness. Let's pray she stays strong.
Part of healing is believing in healing the healing process and another part of healing is believing in the life after healing. Sometimes empaths take on the burden of the world, so their belief needs to be one that can take on the world.
The traumas that they faced merely created a need for healing, and healing created the need for a brilliant vision, a reason to live and prosper.
As they heal, the empaths grow and overcome the physical, emotional, and social burdens they face and as they do so they discover, develop and distinguish an inner strength. With this now shining inner strengh, the empath can realize the vision that was and is the reason they were searching. The clearer the vision, the stronger their belief in the life after healing.
About the stomach problems, it is possibly related wuth emotional traumas on many levels. In alternative healing circles, healing past traumas have led to many cases of near miraculous effects. What's most important is what happens post healing. The healed persons are free to express the songs and stories they were born to manifest. They live happy and fulfilled lives. Yet they fully understand the fragility of life and thus willingly spread joy to the rest of humanity.

Relationship Between Stress And Empathy?


Empath

This discussion bring to the fore some very good points. I quite agree with how when stressed, we do tend to be more sensitive. There is a theory where if you imagine awareness a a small circle, everything that is inside of the circle are things you are aware of and anything outside is that which you are unaware of. Focusing this circle into a tiny dot means that you are acutely aware of a particular sense or channel of information, wile filtering out other information. Expanding this circle means you are aware of many sources of information simultanesously perhaps even pass the limits of comprehension. Moving this circle means that you take in an alternative source of information.
My theory here is that when we are stressed out, the self / body defocuses from the normal physical senses and instead relies more on the empathic senses for information. When cortisol levels rise it has been known that many body functions will shut down. To counter this loss of source of information, the self then relies more on other sources, among them the empathic and psychic senses.

Sleep issues


Empath

Hi there. You know, when in the process of awakening, its common to experience sleepless nights. A major part of this due to your body adjusting to a signifivant increase of information. Where before you had five senses, now you may have tens, even hundreds of senses and this can be overwhelming for the body. Yet it is not right to merely shut off these extra senses, thus the body need to adapt to the increase of information in some way.
So, what's needed is a two prong approach. Cleanse/ground and afterwards energize. Like hop daddy suggested, a salt soak is a really good way to cleanse off the days energies. You can supplement this with further grounding and flushing excercises. The second step is to absorb energy. This can be done with prana breathing, energy works or empathic absorption. This second step will energize you quite a bit that you won't feel sleepy for awhile, and in fact feel quite refreshed and alert. Perhaps it is a good time to go into some contemplative or transcendental meditation. Or, perhaps do some excercises aimed at improving integration of the extra senses. After some time you should feel ready for sleep. Not too tired and still somewhat alert, but most importantly, free from the day's attachments, and this is the perfect condition for sleep.
