This is a huge question - and like Jewel's answers - you need to experience it for yourself. For me - 20 years training Aikido and developing a 6th sense - although, I have since come to the conclusion that this is merely an "animal" sense to protect ourselves that has become un-necessary in modern society and is largely cloaked with all the electrical technology around.
It is still there if you wish to develop it - but it takes work - looking inside and reaching a "higher consciousness."
you can sense the energy thru all the smileys!!!!! and plus, if soemone says your an idiot, they prolly have some energy too. as far as in person, I think it is just matter of obersavtion and not thinking about yourself 24/7. maybe...
hmmmm dunno. I will be back. I suppose, we all have our own interpritations(....cant spell today....)of it. I need to think some more on this. Your right, but I know what I mean, but I cant put it into words.
Speaking for myself only, I find that real insights and subtle 'hits' have a very specific 'feel' to them. It's impossible to describe. All I can say is you know it when it happens. You can feel the difference and there's a certainty to it. Like when you see a chair and touch it. You don't wonder if if was REALLY a chair, you just see and touch it.
I disagree, try this, marinealways24, If you would like to learn how to open or expand, your mind, try this. Find a comfortable place to sit, and not to be distracted. close your eyes and empty your mind by gently telling yourself, very quietly "hush, thoughts be still". And when your mind has become still, image yourself with your eyes opened sitting in your comfortable position in your mind, take and spray paint everything white, everything you see around you in your mind, now extend that whiteness outwards, another way is to pretend you are in a room with no windows and everything is white and of course extend the whiteness out again and yet another way is to wrap white ribbons, the whole way around you like you are creating a circle enclosure around you and then again extend the whiteness out. Let me know if you try this. I hope you find success.
I will try these out and get back to you. I tried out something similar to clear my mind. I imagined picking thoughts out of the air and breathing them out to clear my head. Is this kinda the same idea?
Absolutely not, this will clear uninvited thoughts, and allow for your real thoughts to emerge. Also pay close attention when you quietly tell your thoughts to hush....its more like shhhhhhhh thoughts me still, almost a gentle whisper to your thoughts.
My mind will find it's individual thoughts on anything I hear or read. I will debate everything until I find my absolute individual idea of the topic. When doing this, it's very stressfull to debate everything you hear, much easier to agree. I still have to try these techniques you mentioned. Thank You
I had a boss one time who sent me this e-mail "Get it done!", when I confronted her about it being rude, she informed me that e-mails and memos can't express emotion. Course she was the kind of person who 's negative aura could be felt two floors away.
When we look at others body language or expression, is this energy they are giving off? I think it could be pre-formed thoughts of recognizing what mood the other is in. Energy or thought?
Why do so many of us do activities to take our minds/thoughts off of life? Is it because the stress of thinking? I would agree that it's much easier and less stress to live without thinking. How good of a mood does the news put you in?
I think you think to much.......lol....only kidding.....I use to think or try to go to deep into certain things, and this only caused me, to get frustrated, I don't think you can go by there expression, I do believe this will only give you those predetermined thoughts you were talking about. Which by the way come from past experiences that are no more. Now if you would hang out with them for awhile then the truth of what spirit they come from will reveal itself.
lol I do think too much. I think I have some ADD. Excellent thought on the expressions. I work in customer service and someones expression will often lie to what type of mood they are in. Excellent post. Thanks
Is there a way to stop analyzing everything to enjoy the moment?
If we stop analyzing while in public, aren't we failing to think?
No, because, right this very moment you think you are thinking, and a part of you is, but the other part is analyzing, even right this very moment, reading this hub. Just as I analyzed you a second or so ago, instead of taking your word, and going with it, I stopped and thought about what you said, which I began to analyze why you were asking. does this help?
It took me energy just thinking about someone running 10 miles. Odd how excercise works. It takes away your energy while and after the exercise, but it gives you more energy in the days to come after you recover. Why do our minds get tired also when our bodies get tired?
mine doesnt. If my body is tired from physical activity, my mind is fine. If my mind is tired from too much emotion, my body gets tired. I was really thinking about this last night. About energy expressed/percieved thru written word. I do think, that every reader percieves energy or emotion thru written word, just as the writer intended to express said energy. I do not think the reader will always percieve the intended expression, everyone has thier own learned responses to but that is not your origional question. I still say we recogonize energy by observation.
What about the energy in the tone of a voice? Sarah Palin is a good example. It was hard to hear what she had to say because her tone gave a insecure/weak perception of her. Do you think our tones have energy?
sorry, I didnt hear the sara thing. I dont think tones have energy themselves, but like smileys..they will portray the energy. does that make sense? I am aware that the listener may not percieve it as intended, but its still there. My husband can always tell if I am upset, no matter how hard I try to hide it. Because he knows me. Some people pay attention, others dont.
I really dont know how. I just know, that I do it. If it NEEDS to be done, I do it. If I need to stay awake for 48 hours, cuz of a sick kid or something, there is a part of my brain that says.."do this."
