Telepathy -- Mind to Mind Communication

Written by Sharon Jacobsen

Continued from page 1

It's also believed thatrepparttar unconscious mind is capable of linking to other entities than those which are living. That we can receive messages fromrepparttar 125472 dead. People often dream of lost loved ones who frequently seem to be offering advice or warnings. Is this our own way of putting messages into our conscious mind, or are we communicating withrepparttar 125473 dead?

To test this ability between living entities, try sending a message to a close friend who you know is asleep. Did they remember their dream? Did it involve you?

Telepathy & Relationships

The more time people spend together,repparttar 125474 more likely they are to be able to link up torepparttar 125475 others mind, especially when separated. There are two reasons for this. One is that they understandrepparttar 125476 others mind through time spent together. The other is that there is usually a strong desire to communicate.

A mother will often sense that her child is in danger. This is due torepparttar 125477 child desperately wanting his/her mother, knowing that this isrepparttar 125478 person who would always want to be there for them connecting withrepparttar 125479 mother's deep desire to protect her child for harm.


We are obviously selective when using our telepathic abilities. Imagine how confusingrepparttar 125480 world would become if you were able to receive messages from any number of people simultaneously. It's bad enough when two phones ring at once! Orrepparttar 125481 kids want to tell you three different stories and you're trying to watch your favourite TV show! Perhaps this is why it is generally used in times of dire need? I certainly wouldn't want to be able to receiverepparttar 125482 thoughts of everybody who thought anything at all about me. Peeping throughrepparttar 125483 keyhole is bad enough, looking into thoughts would be awful.
