How to develop telepathic and other abilities
Psychic and Paranormal
Welcome to EC!
This has happened to me too.
It could be like Mary Anne said. Many times I have felt disconnected. For me it wasn't loss of ability, but my focus was put into a certain place and everything else was blocked. Then I started to allow my focus to shift in different areas when needed.
Do you want it to go away?
I think when I realized what was going on.. it was overwhelming and a relief all at once. After a long time of feeling the need to hide for so long it's like whoa! And then you have to find the balance.. I was picked on so when I found people I could relate to it was sort of like saying "ha!". After some time and going through ups and downs you start to understand how you can contribute and help others. For me it is to help those young people who I can see are in need of someone to listen. I do what I can and they move on. Funny you put it as superhero.. at first it feels like you are discovering so much you are not sure what to do. If guided wrong you could get the "Bonk". And yes.. I have needed the bonk. More than that I think generation gaps need a bridge to understand and help each other. We do need each other and we do need to know that each of us has value in our own way.
Have a great evening!
Sensitivity tends to be viewed as weakness.. I have to say.. that I felt this is what people's perception was of me... out of all the sensitive people I knew as a child.. they are some of the smartest.. kindest.. most productive adults.. and everyone else sees that too. Not me per se.. but others I watched being picked on that I stepped in.. not that I was excluded.. but sensitive kids sometimes join together.. and I took offense to the bullying of others.. for me.. well.. I guess I blocked it out as much as I could and became invisible as it were.
I was fortunate to make some tough choices that I still do not regret. Sometimes you have to stand your ground. In my situation it cost me many "friends".. but in the end I would say it defined me in more ways than I ever could have dreamed. Crazy to think that one decision could change the whole course of your life. Love and Light prevail even if it is hard to see it in those dark times of life. It is true that Courage doesn't always roar.. sometimes it is the small voice that says "I will try again tomorrow".... theme of my life.
I read when I am not even thinking about it. I think for me.. I got used to using it to protect myself from the not so nice people. And I guess once I sensed that or saw something that triggered .. it would automatically flip the switch on (so to speak). I also find myself reading those who are hurt or suffering in some way. I remember in high school asking someone if they were ok, and they were shocked and asked how I knew something was wrong. Once again, triggered by something and just something I never tried to use in any other way. When I see someone that has a bright light around them.. I will smile in passing but they clearly do not need me to read them.. it is nice to see.
Sometimes I get messages for others.. and it can get awkward to know just how to approach a person. I am not reading them that I am aware of.. simply won't let go until I deliver the message. I am quite sure it is not me.. when I tell someone what I need to say to them.. I am usually as baffled as they are. Try to play that off and walk away.. I typically find a creative way to approach a subject so that people are comfortable to receive. It takes time and generally the strongest messages come through for people that I know and feel safe around.
The first and second pictures fascinated me because they bring so much more to this person.
Reviewing my notes it is clear that the first picture is just full of light and life. I see beautiful "things with wings". I see many angelic figures.. some are sending what appears to be flowers.. I see a fairy shape..butterfly.. things that make me feel like flying. Her picture was literally painted in white where all there is left is her face. I see something with her neck and I am not sure what to say about that. I am not sure if I am interpreting this correctly but I see what is now common of breast cancer awareness. I see letters and a pen/marker.. but after a while the ink starts leaking out into a puddle and I feel like I can no longer do it.. like it won't matter or wont work. She liked or enjoyed head pieces.. fancy things to wear on the head... in the first picture.
The second pic was tough for me to look at in comparison to the first. It was like a line was drawn and I could not stop thinking about it. I am seeing what first looked like a headband with the balls at the end. Something I would wear on if I wanted to dress up like ET. And then that changes into a stethoscope.. like I was being examine by a doctor and they wanted to get into my head. I feel uneasy and trapped in some way. I see clearly the number 5. I feel like I am waiting to hear bad news or waiting for something that is lurking. I went from free to a cage in some way. Like I fear for my existence in some way.
This is a good overall list here!
For me I would say that I have always fought the items listed and because of the way I was raised it was not a hard decision to please and do what others determined was good for me. I have always wondered.. why am I different? Why me? Once you stop fighting these questions they become.. WHAT do I do with this? I have been here on EC almost two years now. All because of a random search after a dear friend called me out... "Your'e an empath!". It was astounding at the time.. and a flood of emotion just poured through me. What a jolt to the system.
Medically I have not been diagnosed with anything despite a search for the why.. the best I can recall there is a nervous disorder in the family that was just something delt with .. it was never mentioned really. I have also always learned backwards. It has made it difficult to learn concepts that come easy to others.. once I learn it though.. I know it backwards and forwards. Sometimes I don't have a way to communicate into words what I know.. what is truth to me.. why I did this or that. I find it hard to explain without simply showing. It seems to be a bit of a logo in my life.. don't tell me... show me.
Blessings be yours,
I think shielding for me is mostly to protect something that feels foreign or "scary". Once you experience different feelings it is no longer something you necessarily throw up a shield for.. If I may put it like that. I wonder if healers need to work through this in order to use their healing abilities to their fullest.. or is it something they can simply do. Good questions..
I think for me grounding is far more important most of the time. In my mind I need to control what is going on with me before anything else. Many times it feels like I am putting up that boundary around myself to protect others.. not to block them from me.
Taking in information through absorbing to interpret what it is? Do you feel you are a healer?
You are NOT doing anything wrong.. at some point you question these things.. and at another point you realize it does not matter what people think. It only matters how you feel about yourself. Easier said than done. There are many reasons for people to feel they are alone in a society that would pick you apart and expose everything "wrong" with you. Keep your focus.. on what you want to do.. and do it. Let things flow through.. let them go.
Tempting when people look at you funny to turn and say boo...lol
Hang in there.. keep your eye(s) focused.
The community has been a great place to feel whole. I think many that found their way here feel just as you do. I had to accept that many people would not understand. I use many feeling words to express myself. I will also joke more about what I see rather than trying to push what I am on people. If you asked the people close to me.. they would tell you I am weird.. when I am inspired to speak I will allow it to come out.. and you will find that I will smile and say.. "wasn't that crazy!!". You will find your niche and the best way for you to express yourself. Some hold it all in.. I think that was one of the biggest reasons why most feel I am holding back.. they aren't sure why.. but they will openly say it.. and I will admit jokingly that they are simply not ready to hear what I have to say! It is a balance depending on where you live.. your history.. family.. friends. You are among those that understand your struggle and live through it each day.... in good company. As you learn and grow you will discover that your path will lead you exactly where you need to go.. and you will also find it will get easier to communicate. Who knows.. I had a friend that had to tell me what I was.. I had no idea what she was talking about. When she called me on it the last time.. I decided to look into it and found my way here. Ask me if I remember exactly how.. I would say no. Thank you for sharing your feelings and anxieties about how to live in a world that is slow to accept change and just know that you are not alone.
Light and Love,
"eye of the hurricane".. I like this analogy better than how I try to describe it. I often explain it by describing the world immediately around me as chaotic and if I look past it on the other side there is what is really going on. Most people that I have met in my life never look past the chaos around them and we all get caught in the circular wind sometimes. Having a focal point has always helped me to come out of the storm. The Grand Cross.. not only am I watchful during this time, but also watch as the other Cardinal signs involved are people closest to me. Being directly involved with so much going on will test me to keep myself grounded and make some important decisions that I need to make right now.
I get what your saying and I have thought about it more than I should. I think there is a fine balance between feeling and not feeling too much. You do need to live.. feel joy and pain and allow others to see you feel. You are here after all.. and if you cannot express your joy and your pain then you are left with a numbness that could be mistaken by others as cold and distant. Sometimes you don't have to be sappy.. but kind words and actions can allow you to not say what you feel as much as show what you feel.
Knowing yourself and how the world views you are not always in sync? I can relate to that.
