what if your entire life you picked up on the feelings/impressions of other people
but, not knowing that was the case, could not understand the impression as them versus yourself…
in other words you are born, against the unproven grain, as a natural “empath”
and only later did you realize that was what was occurring
who could possibly explain this?..
in the case of healingtaousa,
what if the people who understood this had a philosophy/politic attached to the actual CNS understanding which you do not agree with
this empathy never once involved the smiling practices..
somehow there is a common “antenna” inside of people..
this is essentially Buddhic.. where is that antenna coming from?
my point being that this is real and an issue…
obviously higher level Tantric and Buddhist practitioners understand this
and have their own “religion”
but what is the actual thing occurring? is it separate form religion/politic?
clearly it is a beneficial faculty…
warnings, understanding, truth
this is how I personally landed here to begin with…
this is largely rhetorical but a serious issueMay 20, 2014 at 11:32 pm #42436
Everyone has intuitive skills, and these can be developed through practice.
Some are naturally more intuitive.
However, the issue of empathically taking on the feelings/emotions/impressions etc. of others is a stronger intuitive antenna, but unfortunately connected to a body that lacks boundary.
Ultimately, an empath suffers from lack of boundary and weak earth element.
This weak earth element does not create a supportive boundary so there is a constant “invasion” of energies from outside (actually both out and in). Usually a lot of empaths try to be “larger than life” . . . be as boisterous and center of attention as possible, in an unconscious attempt to be so yang expansive as a way to push back all of the energies coming in. Of course this attention-seeking is self-defeating as more external energies are drawn to the attention, causing more influx to counteract the extra outflux. All of this creates a feedback loop of draining the empath of energy, and causing wild emotional swings.
The weak earth element has no overflow to support the metal element in the creation cycle, so the metal element is also often weak. A core metal quality is in having a distinct “me”-self in contrast to the “we”-self, and so this quality is at deficit in these folks. This lack of “me”-self is directly related to the lack of boundary by the weak earth element.
The solution to this problem is to strengthen both the weak earth element and the metal element.
By the way, I seem to recall you saying once that you do a lot of LSD. Drugs weaken the earth element. Yes, they may be very good at opening the 3rd eye, but your earth element will suffer from it. You’ll have to decide if you want to discontinue, or simply come up with other means to counteract the natural weakening of the earth element that occurs through drug use. By the way, this also occurs through even casual stimulant use, such as nicotine or caffeine. If you don’t feel you wish to give up all (or even some) of these things, then you will need to necessarily work harder to correct and stabilize the earth and metal elements.
