Mercury Retrograde Nov 2018


New Age

@cheshire-cat
@hop-daddy

Brought my mug but I think I'm late to the party! Speaking of mugs, when my son was a bit older and in more control of his dexterity, someone asked me why we drink out of coffee mugs. I replied, mugs don't tip over!

The telekinesis remarks are interesting. I've been known to put out street lights when walking or driving under them. Computers often act funny around me. Once, the clock on my computer started running backwards. Another time at my therapist's office, I was standing next to her while we looked something up and she was getting very frustrated about her computer not working right. I said to her, here let me move away and maybe it'll work well for you...and it did after I moved.

Do you know those figurines that you press a button and they play music? In my house, they go off all the time by themselves. We had one that was going off for a couple years. The batteries had to be dead and I think it was running on pure empath power!

I also wanted to ask if either of you, or any others that read this, have seen something break right before it actually does break. I've had this happen to me a few times.

Cheshire Cat interesting remark on fibromyalgia. It could magnify your powers since it is a disease of the central nervous system.

Well the retrograde is in full swing now and I'm laying low. I too have been dropping things all the time. The more frustrated I get the more it happens. It's a fair assumption to make that the more agitated we become, the more we effect our surroundings and that which happens in them. When I'm in a funked out mood, it is more for others sake than my own. I like to say at those times I'm not fit for human company because I do know that my agitation will affect other people. We are that powerful of an energy generator. I also isolate myself for my own protection too. But I understand my own ability to affect others and I take it as a responsibility to be aware of what I am emanating.

What is your biggest issue as an empath?


Empath

Mike Simpson-Rogers:

With the recent catastrophes in California.  I have been on overload.  The day before the Bar shooting, every time I meditated I felt as if I was a large bomb of energy about to be released.  When I closed my eyes to meditate.  All I could see was a kolidescope of blood drops.  That night as I slept.  I dreamt that I was standing in a bar, and hearing gunshots,and seeing people dropping.  I woke up and saw what was on TV and sat and cried for a while.  I asked my guardian angels to go help those that need comfort and their help.  It's hard to see the news.  Because I recall my dream.  Those that were there to help are very blessed people.  For all those that passed, may God Bless their families for the comfort they need to go on with their lives the way their l9ved ones would have wanted them to.


Hi Mike. What a compassionate Soul you are! This is what I mean when I say that an empath's life will place them exactly where they need to be.

I gave an exercise to another member where you use the heart to radiate out waves of energy into the collective consciousness. In your case it would be appropriate to bring up feelings of compassion and healing for the victims and their families or whatever you feel would be best to send.

@alexisw Hi Alexis! 🖖

Wow, you're really down in the dumps. You are young compared to many here and it's easy for us older folks to forget how raw and intense youth can be.

Because I was born aware, I think it gave me an advantage to being an empath. I take it more for granted. I always saw it as a part of who I am. And yet we tend to speak of our abilities; as if it is separate from us.

Here's my take on how an empath functions best, moving day 2 day, through our world. We are all empaths on this forum but we're all different. Each person is a unique empath. It is merged with their personality which influences their empath characteristics, while they influence the personality. You can't really separate them.

The coolest thing about being an empath is that to be really good at it is as easy as being yourself! You do your work by living your life. It is your life that takes you where you need to be, where are your special talents can shine.... they'll be there when you need them, particular to what is needed.

You'll be there when someone needs the understanding that only a person like you can give. This is why we don't turn them on or off... they don't work that way. You're like an extension of the Creator here on Earth!

And it's hard to be bombarded with the darker energy of humanity and Society. But there's a flip side to that; where you're just being yourself and enjoying your life. When you're with friends or you meet interesting strangers you get to feel all that more than most. You bring compassion to the world empathy to the world love to the world. And you don't have to do anything because it moves as an energy wave outward from you and in this way you change the world for the better.

I've gone through some very dark times. Where I doubted myself. Where I was disappointed in myself; sometimes even disgusted. But you know what? Those were some of my greatest learning periods. I had to learn a lot about myself to be able to be myself. I'm still learning!

I've often pondered If part of my work here is just to observe. Because we observe everything. Spirit is all about energy and that is what we perceive best. There's a field all around us that connects us, connects the whole world. Empaths more than anyone can communicate and send forth energy to this field. Do you know what the energy of this is called? It's emotions. Its emotions, that fuel the intent in all prayers, affirmations, and healings.

I want you to do something for me and yourself. Close your eyes.

Place one or both of your hands on your heart and turn your attention there. Breathe In and Out through your nose slowing your breath down to about five counts each way. Slow your breath, in and out till you feel calm

Now imagine your breaths flowing in and out through your heart. Slow breaths in and out of your heart.

Now, I want you to remember something from your past where you felt love or compassion or gratitude. Something that caused one of these Noble emotions to rise in you. Maybe even just the love of a pet while holding that pet. Now, hold that feeling while slowly breathing in and out through your heart hold that for 1 minute.

Imagine that lovely energy field around your heart begin to grow to extend into the room to extend into your house to extend out into your neighborhood.

That's the secret to being an empath and changing the world. I can guarantee you that if you use this one minute exercise here and there throughout the day or when you hit a really rough patch, you will feel elevated after you do it.

Continue to do it as a very easy discipline and you will start to heal your wounded soul.

Hugs,

Michelle❤

What is your biggest issue as an empath?


Empath

The biggest issues for me as an empath were doing my youth. This was a time when there just wasn't information concerning this. I was aware of my abilities but had no one to talk to about it. Nor was there anyone who could counsel me.

I could feel other's emotional pain in my body, particularly the stomach and solar plexus area. If a couple were having an argument near me, I would get a stomach ache.

I came up with the most ingenious plans to overcome this. One was that I would see my head surrounded by those metal doors merchants use when their shops are closed. I would envision each door on each side of my head slamming shut.

Another thing about being an empath is that people either love you or hate you. I think this comes from the blunt honesty that all empaths can have. It may also have to do with the ability we have to mirror others emotions and thoughts back to them.

Knowing what they are feeling can freak some people out. I was accused more than once of being a witch! This also caused a few coworkers to slander me or sabotage my work. I learned to cover my butt by keeping extra copies of any reports or memos I did.

Those types of reactions we're always very hurtful to me. It seemed so unfair!

I also have experienced meddlesome intrusions from ghosts and negative entities. Some scared the bejesus out of me. This has been a constant from a very young age. I would cry out to my mum for help in the middle of the night. Of course she never understood what was happening to me. Again, I had to learn to deal with this on my own.

One negative entity was most persistent during my teenage years. It would come during the night as I tried to sleep and even followed me when I would stay at others homes for the night. I hated that thing. It would physically touch and shake me. It was finally my righteous anger which made it stop. I sensed its presence one night in my room and in the most menacing voice I could muster, I demanded that it leave me alone.

I often wonder if it actually left or just left me alone for a while. The first experience I had with it was in 9th grade. I was home alone in the evening when all of all of a sudden it started banging on all four walls in our kitchen. I realized it couldn't have been a prank from someone on the outside of the house because two of the walls where interior.

I don't remember doing anything Brave or spectacular. I was very afraid and waited it out. I remember writing small notes of what was happening and leaving them around the kitchen for my family to read if something happened to me.

In later years, into my adulthood, I used the Lord's Prayer to stop it. I had read where a Buddhist monk said that this was a very powerful prayer. It worked for me on more than one occasion. This was not a ghost but a demon that plagued me for many years.

When my son was a baby, it came back a few times when my son was sleeping in bed with me. Once it entered that early sleep when you begin to dream and I saw it. This woke me quickly and I looked over to check on my son. It then raised itself under my covers growling at me. Again I use the Lord's Prayer to make it go away.

I could go on with more stories but do not wish to give them any more airtime.

Some of the more pleasant things of being an empath have been the immediate and deep connection I have made with people. I have had many occasions where I have walked past a person and we both stop and turn to stare at each other. There is an instant recognition between us and we enter in to a deep and profound conversation. These are people I have never met in this current lifetime of mine. Sometimes, we have stayed in touch to explore more conversations but usually, it is only that one time upon meeting. I just had that happen a couple weeks ago in the grocery store. I really don't expect to see her again and that's okay. What we experienced together was deep and lasting.

Another thing I absolutely love about being an empath is children and babies' reaction to me. I get big smiles and waves of hello from them. Who could ask for anyting more pleasant than that?!

It has also been deeply gratifying to be able to help those in need. I have often just looked at a stranger and knew that they needed help. I have peered at people through a crowd, locked eyes and mouthed, "Are you okay?" A negative shake of the head and relief in their eyes follows; so relieved are they that someone sees their pain.

I have helped them in whatever way was appropriate to their situation and then exited their life. Once in awhile, I am fortunate to have one of these Souls flag me down on the street or in a store and hear of their success since our last encounter. I thank the Creator for placing me at the right time and place to be of service.

Mercury Retrograde Nov 2018


New Age

@cheshire-cat

Mercury is in retrograde three to four times per year. So 3 to 4 x 3 weeks equals 9 to 12 weeks of the year that Mercury is in retrograde! That's a significant portion of the year.

I'm not sure if the retrograde effects are anymore intense for particular zodiac signs. Rather it has to do with a Mercury retrograde in your natal chart. I don't know a whole lot about astrology but you do need to know your time of birth and the latitude and longitude of your birthplace. If anymore than this is needed it is not known by me.

The following article gives more information on this:

http://www.crystalwind.ca/latest-astrology-news/mercury-retrograde-16-november-2018-psychic-vampires#

I feel for you concerning the struggles you deal with during these times. I am a Virgo which is also ruled by Mercury. I know that Mercury is strongly represented in my chart. Not sure if there are any of these retrogrades in it though.

I am a type A personality and years of that plus trauma have done much damage to my central nervous system. I also have severe adrenal fatigue which has left me with no threshold for stress. I too freak out easily when things go wrong depending on their severity or monetary cost.

Computer glitches have been rearing their head already. Being a Virgo, I like things neat and orderly. One look at the format of my beginning post causes me to cringe. It seems when starting this thread that my computer had a life of its own! I was so frustrated, I left it as it is, understanding that things were out of my control. As the article States, " Let It Go, Let It Go, Let It Go!"

Tonight, I'm using Google Voice to to type. Never really used that before but saw my son doing so. Right now, this is a godsend since I've have been in the throes of some very low energy days. We'll see how this formats once I post my response.

@hop-daddy
Lucky you that you can go through these retrogrades unscathed. I wonder if this is reflected in your natal chart?

Do we have any astrology buffs here in our community? If so, I would like to hear your take on all this.

Mercury Retrograde Nov 2018


Consider this thread a public service anouncement! You can also share your experiences during this period, here.


The first article gives general info.

The second is written for empaths and HS[s].


Mercury retrogrades affect all but empaths are particularly sensitive to them. Also, according to the author, we can also be vulnerable during the "shadow" phases a couple of weeks before and after the event.



I can testify to that. For the past week, I have been constantly agitated. Computer glitches and whole posts disappearing to not feeling able to be in my own skin!


Also, the full moon [Beaver Moon] is on the AM of the 23 so you'll see it the night of the 22. This makes the effects of Mercury's retro more intense..my empath friend pointed out to me this is on Thanksgiving! Yikes! I'll be home all day with family!




So, forewarned is forearmed. Read on and please do share your thoughts/feelings.


Yours in Service,

Michelle

@michelle,

Ditto what hop-daddy said. Another light warrior here, and have fought them on the astral in my sleep. Exhausted from it and discouraged by the lack of awakening in the general population. I know of 2 more of us who are members here and there may be more. I also think of us as a clean up crew. People have different roles as you said. I also wonder what  the heck I was thinking when I decided to come here. I can also relate to people not listening to me, even people who've seen me predict things that came true or other things like it over and over. I am also older like you, and want you to know how you are not alone! thanks for posting this...it has helped me too. :-) 



Yes, what WERE we thinking????!!! Ain't that the truth! Nice to meet a fellow warrior.

And, of course, all the rest of the shining people here! I'm so very happy to be a part of this community❤

@hop-daddy

Why don't some perceive negs? Maybe it's not in their mission to do so, at this time. Or, they are still learning.
Who really wants it anyway...except the darker STS[s]?

I also think that the Matrix, made by the demiurge is designed to take notice of any who would/could/do become problematic to the dark's plans. Keep your head down and support the matrix and they pretty much leave you alone.

I also think that if one is too interested in them that it acts as a sort of invitation. This requires a balancing act because one does need to understand that they do indeed exist. And some need the protection of greater Knowledge...as in your case or mine.

I have alot of qualms with the new age movement because it down plays the dark and as I said, it isn't all Light and Love here. I think there is much deception in this type of teaching.

Read some of the channelings and they're peppered with flowery and flattering speech or they talk to readers as if they're children. IMO I think many are deluded and hence, so are their followers. This is just another dark trap.

The Gnostic Christians of the second century believed that only a special revelation of knowledge rather than faith could save a person. The contents of this revelation could not be received empirically or derived a priori. They considered this special gnosis so valuable that it must be kept secret. Here are the ten major principles of the gnostic revelation:

1.The creator of this world is demented.

2.The world is not as it appears, in order to hide the evil in it, a delusive veil obscuring it and the deranged deity.

3.There is another, better realm of God, and all our efforts are to be directed toward returning there bringing it here

4.Our actual lives stretch thousands of years back, and we can be made to remember our origin in the stars.

5.Each of us has a divine counterpart unfallen who can reach a hand down to us to awaken us. This other personality is the authentic waking self; the one we have now is asleep and minor.

6.We are in fact asleep, and in the hands of a dangerous magician disguised as a good god, the deranged creator deity. The bleakness, the evil and pain in this world, the fact that it is a deterministic prison controlled by the demented creator causes us willingly to split with the reality principle early in life, and so to speak willingly fall asleep in delusion.

7.You can pass from the delusional prison world into the peaceful kingdom if the True Good God places you under His grace and allows you to see reality through His eyes.

8.Christ gave, rather than received, revelation; he taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, where other mystery religions only bring about amnesis: knowledge of it at the "other time" in "the other realm," not here. He causes it to come here, and is the living agency to the Sole Good God (i.e. the Logos).

9.Probably the real, secret Christian church still exists, long underground, with the living Corpus Christi as its head or ruler, the members absorbed into it. Through participation in it they probably have vast, seemingly magical powers.The division into "two times" (good and evil) and "two realms" (good and evil) will abruptly end with victory for the good time here, as the presently invisible kingdom separates and becomes visible. We cannot know the date.

10.During this time period we are on the sifting bridge being judged according to which power we give allegiance to, the deranged creator demiurge of this world or the One Good God and his kingdom, whom we know through Christ.

To know these ten principles of Gnostic Christianity is to court disaster.

What say you on this?

Yes, elementals is the correct word. Fairies and such can be included in with the elementals.

Have you ever heard the saying, "Over every plant or blade of grass is an Angel saying, 'Grow!'"? This would refer to them.

I've sensed them in some areas and felt something akin to anger. Not surprising as mankind has done so much harm to the green world. We were meant to partner efforts with them, not work against them.

Might I suggest you read the following book?

@hop-daddy

Sure I'm off my life path. I was slapped
down most horrifically.
It runied my health.
I'm not going to repeat
it here....you can find
my story @ the recent thread,
Can Empaths be Narcissists?

I take a darker view of this world than most. It's not all Light and Love here.

I am in agreement with the ancient and modern Gnostics that this world
is run by a corrupted, demented demiurge.

I'm an older empath and have know since youth what I am. I was born with much of my memory intact as to who I really am. I could see myself as a Light being as a toddler...and yes my human memory goes back that far.

Before I go on, I want the younger, more impressionable members to understand that you may be here to purely shine your light in a dark world. Psychic powers do not equal enlightenment; so if you are weak or nonexistent in them, it's ok. I believe Elise mentioned this earlier at the creation of this community. Your empathic
skills are sorely needed in our world.

That said, my spirit is more of a warrior one. I have not only seen ghosts but also demons. They have messed with me since childhood. When one comes into this world as a bright light, it is known. And it was the dark that slapped me to the curb.

I do not have a fasination with such things...I do not try to contact dead relatives thru mediums or others. I do not give interest to most channelings for unless the channel is very pure, it can be hijacked by negatives or corrupted thru the channel's belief system/outlook/whatever.

I believe I came here as part of the cleanup crew for lack of a better description. My life as an empath is the brighter side of my life; knowing when others needed an extended hand to pull them up or a compasionate ear...tbey've come out of the woodwork all my life.

Dealing with the dark is not for the faint of heart and I sometimes
wonder what was I thinking before I came here?!!!

Don't worry, I'm still standing and maybe I'm just recooping my energies for something else. Until then, I'm quite happy to be that nice lady who always seems to know when you're feeling bad and can brighten someone's day with a smile or kind words.

Seeing Faces And Numbers Everywhere


Psychic and Paranormal

I've already mentioned
the flipping faces elsewhere as I close
my eyes.

But I also see faces
in trees and vegetation, some animals
some humanoid. The
thing is that they will
turn their head and
look at me. I always
figured this to be
nature spirits.

My empath son once
told me while walking
in the woods, he saw
a man covered in
leaves running along
side him at a distance.
I said,"Oh, you saw
the Green Man!"[of
old lore]

The weirdest things I
see are in fire. Once,
I saw a skeleton, in a
top hat, dancing for
hours in a campfire,
removing his hat and
bowing to me.

The faces or beings I
see can't be chalked
up to random patterns
because they are inter-
active with me.

"Oh and lately people don't listen to me at all. Like I would give advice or answer a question and I would be ignored or just shut down because I', not "right". Even sometimes when I am talking, it would be as if no one is listening. Sometimes they would just start talking like I am not in the middle of a sentence or talk just after I finished with a total different topic and be answered by whoever is around. Weird right?"

Not weird. I've had the same thing happen many times. It's like I'm invisible.

Thanks so much Bill :) 

I know I technically own the copyright.  I also think I would likely win a law suit. 

But the determining factor is this one: it would be detrimental to my happiness.  I need to conserve my time and energy to work my 2 wonderful jobs and be the best mom I can be to my son. 

At the end of the day, I have nothing left for a lawsuit.  

The support I have received from the EC members has put a healing balm over my broken heart. 

It will heal.

Elise, your response to the plagiarizing is noble. Let me show you the effects of your decision and how possibly more far reaching it makes your lifework.

I'm new here, a few days ago. Before that, I had used Judith Orloff's article [so called] published at , Psychology Today. I used it for non-empaths to see that this is getting mainstream attention, to validate the reality of Empaths. Her medical Degree and publication in a mainstream medical publisher is needed for many's convincing.

I'd like to see that information in another areas such as human biology, as opposed to mental health but it's a step towards widespread recognition and acceptance.

I hope I've given you some comfort towards your sacrafice and shown you how good has come from it.

Thank you for being on Earth at this time.

Cyberhugs,
Michelle

Hello everyone, It's been a while since I've been on. It's great to see everyone and see that the community looks to be doing well. I was reading through some comments of others and randomly got fascinated and had to ask a few different questions. I don't want this to negatively effect anyone, but I would appreciate anyone interested in responding. I would also ask that you answer the questions without reading other people's comments, just because I'm wanting a pure response...

1) How many of you have some sort of chemical/ man-made/ processed product sensitivity? Whether it's to food, to shampoo, cleaners, anything. I would like to know how long you've known about this sensitivity, and what your symptoms/ side effects are.

2) What are your dietary choices? And why do you eat that way/ what motivates you to eat the way you do. (It's fine if you don't have a reason)

3) Superheroes and/or Superpowers do you relate to the most? Why do you like that character and/or superpower? EDIT: Or just movie characters or book characters. Any character you've seen or read about that you really connected with.

4) If you know, what is your MBTI type (if you don't know, don't worry about this question)

Thank you in advance to anyone who comments!

@loconnoro Hello. Very interesting that you posted these questions because I was going to do something similar in my 1st thread here at the community. I'll withhold why until you're ready to disclose your interest in doing so. Now, onto your questions....

1. Artificial fragrances make me go bonkers and feel ill...I stick to essential oils or no fragrances at all. Deodorant or standard commercial soaps make me itch and dry out my skin. I use only hard milled soaps with natural ingredients. Only use salt crystal for deodorant.

Most meds are not tolerated...period.

Make many of my own cleaners but can use and like Lysol's H2O2 cleaners and wipes.

Processed food can make me ill, causing pseudo-allergic-like and delayed responses...hours later. Stimulants aren't good for me , either.

Sensitive to particulate inhalants.

I think I'm allergic to some people; who, technically, are man-made. 😁

2. I'm genetically histamine intolerant [1% of population] meaning my body is impaired in breaking down excess histamine. This guides my food choices and how I balance my intakes, if I do eat high histamine foods.

3. What a fun question! Gosh,where to start?

Superheroes: The first of these type movies were interesting because I read comic books as a kid. But now, I feel they are over represented....give me a good drama, with good chacter development any time.

I liked Batman because his gadgets were interesting and I liked the Batmobile!

But the comic book character I related to the most was Peter Parker as Spiderman. Both Peter and Spiderman were more real...flawed like all of us. Each struggled with their life and weren't spectacular in personality or powers....compared to others whether human or superhero...they were allowed to bumble at times.

Book characters: Oh man, Sherlock Holmes and the many interpretations in TV and movies....He's just so darn smart!

I like strong woman characters...

Well, Irene Adler, that woman, who could outsmart Holmes and earned his admiration.

George Elliot's female characters....and the author, herself. She was such a saucy woman!

Love Jane Eyre..again this has to do with intelligence.

Children's books [or are they?] :

Lyra Blaqua of , The Golden Compass." A brave, clever girl who is fiercely independent.

Too many other's to name in other genres.

4. ENFP....anyother's out there?

I have watched a lot of Richards youtube videos before buying some of the courses. I found all of them helpful.  Do you know Pete Walker?  he wrote books on ptsd, "From surviving to thriving" and "The Tao of Fully Feeling".

@Chrisis No need to apologize; we've all been hurt bad. But we all have the ability to be strong. Empaths are here for a very special reason. We're here to transmute energy...for us, for people, for our world. As I heal my stuff, it makes it easier for others. So, we carry on. And right here we find each other to empathize, to share and to uplift. I thank you ALL for being so warm and welcoming...it is a relief to be where I can be myself.🤤

Yeah, I will watch the Yt videos 1st. No, I haven't read the books you mentioned.I've read Peter Levine & others, on Somatic Experiencing; which is very specific to PTSD and physical trauma-related heath issues.

I've read Donna Eden's books on energy healing and some on EFT. Also, many on neuroplasticity.

How Ghosts Impact Us


Psychic and Paranormal

@hop-daddy [cool name]😎

I only saw him through the mirror. It was when he came up behind me, in another area of the room, that it felt weird and creepy. There was no mirror to view him. I firmly told him to, "Cut it out!" I don't remember him coming close ever again.

Except the time years later with new owners and the picture falling.

And you're right, it would have taken alot of energy to break that wire. It was thick gauage and not frayed.

The wife told me Bob was a crabby old man who nobody liked and he didn't like any one except the wife next door. And she was kind to him.

The way I figure it is, he'd be the same after death as he was in life.
So here I come along, an intruder, who can see him and told him to shove off...probably wasn't too happy to see me after all those years!

Can a Narcissist be an empath?

So_exausted_from_users:
Michelle,
I am so sorry for everything you have been through...
I am a survivor of mental tourcher but I couldn't imagine..
It sounds like you have turned your pain into strength.. That is awesome.

Sweetie, I've always seen myself as a strong person but believe me, I have my days.

I'm 60 years old and that trauma happened when I was 52. Besides the PTSD, I developed Central Pain Syndrome which is a hellish existance where even a loud noise can set off unremitting, excruciating pain.

I healed much of that by reading books on neuroplasticity. Every time I had pain I say there are no more receptors for the pain from my body to lock into...shrinking the pain map. Then I'd envision reds lights across my brain going out.

The other thing that got ramped up was my histamine intolerance....for me this is genetic. This is still problematic and I am experimenting with techniques which will turn this gene off.

I empathize with @cat- whisperer because my son was 16 at the time and I believe he also developed PTSD from seeing what happened to me and as an empath himself, we are bouncing off each other's energies.

He also has histamine intolerance or HIT and this can really mess up neurotransmitters, as it is also a neurotransmitter [among other things] and ramps the other transmitters up.

He cannot process alcohol but continues to do so and can become quite violent. I am on disabilty and he still lives with me as I can't live on my own. He doesn't drink much at one time but I have never seen anyone react to to beer as he does.

The change is drastic in him and I wonder where my sweet son has gone.

So, things are not good nor condusive to healing but I continue to work on myself so that my energy field can once again be calming to him or any other.

If any reading here would send health, happiness and loving thoughts to us, I would be most appreciative.

I find that, for myself,
when doing heart meditations, that the emotion of gratitude...as if I am already healed, works best.

Perhaps this can help you, also.

How Ghosts Impact Us


Psychic and Paranormal

Hello All!

This is the 1st time I've ever heard from another about the movie like flipping of faces before sleep.

I would see too many to count of all races and nationalities [noticed by dress] I never tried to formulate a reason for this as it was kind of a norm for me. But astral projections does make sense.

I've seen and felt ghosts all my life. One story I'll share was at a house I used to clean.

This would only happen in rhe master bedroom which also had an extraordinary amount of dust that would reappear after cleaning.

The first time I saw him was in the mirror of the bath area of the room [all open]. He startled me when I looked up from cleaning the sink and saw him over my left shoulder.

He was fuzzy at first but the more this happened, I could see that he was male. I never got a clear look at him as in life, just his outline and recognition that he was male.

This went on for many of my days there before I finally built up the nerve to ask the wife the following:

"At the risk of seeming odd, do you know if anyone died in this house?"

"What do you mean?"

"Well, in your bedroom, I keep seeing a presence in the mirror, over my left shoulder. I don't feel frightened; it just startled me. And I believe it's a man."

The owner got real quiet for awhile and I'm wondering if she thinks I'm nuts....there goes my job.

She finally told me that yes, they did have a ghost and how it would pull pranks when all her kids were living at home.

She also said, "But we don't tell anyone about it."

I then asked, "Well, don't you think you should tell the cleaning lady about it?!" 😆

Anyway, his name was Bob and he had been a cantankerous elderly man who was the wife's neighbor during a previous abusive marriage. The old man liked her and would get very angry at her abuse.

Seems when he died, he attached to her and would scare the crap out of the abusive husband.

She remarried and Bob stayed with her becoming not a protecting presence but more of a prankster.

After she told ne this, I went to clean the bedroom and he came up behind me in a different area, across the room. That felt wierd and different so I told him to cut it out and he never bothered me again.

Years later, they moved and my son got invited to a birthday party in the same house with new owners. I don't know if it was Bob or a coincident but when I walked into the living room, a huge picture over the fireplace snapped it's thick wire and fell with a loud bang!

Can a Narcissist be an empath?


Empath

@chrisis

Hello to you and thank you for responding. I think it might be possible for the garden variety narcissist to heal core wounds and at a stretch, maybe some sociopaths, but I am doubtful that any change could come to a psychopath.

I think narcissistic behavior can be formed from early abuse/negelect in some people but a full blown
psychopath has a different brain from the norm. Most of what I read is that 60-50% of formation due to a genetic flaw in brain structure and 50-40% or the triggering is related to the environment. But then again who is telling the storyline to the reseachers but the narc/psycho?

You see, I was a victim of a psychopath. I won't go into details, but I was abducted and beaten for hours before escaping and hiding under a neighbors porch until he stopped looking for me.

My central nervous system was damaged from beating to the head and having my neck snap to and fro. Persistant PTSD was also an effect of this encounter.

An here's another thing that one might not see in your average narc. This man changed into something very evil. I mean this literally. I saw his face shapeshift into something reptilian as he said to me, "Don't worry, I'm not not going to rape you; I'm into bloodlust."

My own experience tells me that "Organic Portals" is a very good description of them.

I would also like to ask if you have used any of the kits sold at spartanlifecoach.com? Because years latter, I am still carrying much of this energy in my body.

I use EFM and heart coherence techniques and Donna Eden's energy work but there is a persistence that I cannot shake. I also see a therapist.

I am using Auralite 23 crystal for healing too.

Birds as Omens and Signs


Library of Light

I like to use Ted Andrews' book, "Animal Speak," for interpreting bird/animal/insect interactions. My copy is dog eared as I have so many encounters with my wild friends.

@chrisis [and all members]
Chris, the YT video you posted is similar to one by Tom Montalk, titled, "Spiritless Humans."
Some call them Organic Portals. Give it a look:

This is probably a stupid question


Psychic and Paranormal

@just-stevie:
I can also share with you how incredibly powerful we are from one of my personal experiences:

My son was young and we were having horrific rain/flooding, days of it. The water had begun to leak thru his bedroom ceiling, causing a bulge. 

The landlord would not be able to fix the roof until the storms had past.

Son and I joined hands and intended that no flood water or rain would enter our home. We were the only home not flooded in our neighborhood. But there's more.

After we did our intentions in his room, under the ceiling leak, we went downstairs. He kept asking if we should check the leak. I told him if he keeps checking the ceiling he'd be doubting what we were creating....you have to believe or not.

After a couple of hours, while still raining, we went to look:
No more water coming in! I went and opened the window and told him to stick his hand out the window.

Even though a storm raged around our home, no rain was hitting our roof or the arms we stuck outside. Absolute truth.

I also have an affinity with nature, trees being one of my favorites. I swear they wave to me when I'm looking at them and thinking toward them. Completely still atmosphere, not a whiff of a breeze and a branch or two will begin to sway back and forth. I am very aware of their 'presence.'

Animals too.

@just-stevie I just assumed you'd be Grandma and not Grandpa. Not sure after I looked at your name.

Please correct me if I got the wrong gender.

Hi, I'm new, today.

Regarding your question:
Yes, you can heal/soothe another from a distance!
We are ALL connected through a field.

If one were to heal another, see them as healed, not sick or disturbed. Which is what you did, you felt your grandbaby calmed down, so your daughter could get her much needed rest.

Smile, Grandma!
