What Is Channeling?Written by Skye Thomas
From my earliest memories as a very young child, I have been experiencing various paranormal activities. I had clairvoyant visions and occasionally heard voices, but mostly I "felt" other people's thoughts or feelings. I think my particular niche is labeled as telepathic empath. As one of those kids who always asked, "Why?" I had to find out how all of this worked. Like any kid with a cool new toy, I wanted to feel that rush again and again. How do I make it happen again? From time I first learned how to read, I began my quest for knowledge. What is this and how can I control it? Years later when ghostly presence of my celestial guides invited themselves into my reality, I had to add them to my quest for comprehension. "Who are they and how do I control them?" Here's what I know so far.
Clairvoyant visions are well documented throughout history. We've all heard of people who changed their mind and did not get on Titantic because of an eerie knowingness that something bad was about to happen. Almost every plane crash has same sorts of stories wrapped around it. Many of us have avoided car wrecks and such after hearing, seeing, or feeling oncoming disaster before it happens. So we can pretty much agree that clairvoyance happens. But why? How? Some believe that time does not move in a straight line, but rather it weaves back and forth and around itself. Okay, so does that also explain concept of history continually repeating itself? But that doesn't tell me how I can randomly see a different spot in time other than one I'm supposed to be in? I haven't found anything that definitely tells me how someone can see a past or future piece of time. We only know for sure that it does happen.
Telepathic episodes are probably more common than any other paranormal event. Ever 'feel' someone just before they call you on telephone? I've read stories of mothers who 'felt' their sons die in battle. Scientists have done extensive research in this area. The test that I find amazing is one where they have two people who have never met set up in two different countries. One is to focus on sending other hints, clues, and visions of a particular photograph or painting. The second person is to 'receive' information and decipher it. The receiver then recreates or describes details to scientists. It's set up as a double blind experiment so that scientists with 'receiver' don't know what 'sender' across world is looking at. They've repeated it many times over with quite a few different 'senders' and 'receivers'. We know for sure telepathy does happen, but how?
There is a large group who thinks that it's simply a heightened level of perception. They say that on a subconscious level person experiencing frequent telepathic episodes is really just picking up on hundreds of little clues like body language and pupil dilation. They say that telepath doesn't realize that they've gathered up a bunch of these tiny clues and are actually just coming to a logical prediction as to what person is about to say or do next. That probably is happening most of time on an everyday level. We all know someone with that uncanny ability to 'read' someone, to know what they're about to say. However, that doesn't explain times when person you're 'reading' isn't even in same city as you. How do they explain it then?
Quantum physics is helping us to begin to understand some of inner workings of such things. The current understanding is that thoughts and feelings have an energy, life force, or frequency wave associated with them. What we're trying to figure out is how does that energy get picked up by others and correctly interpreted? The basic theory is that our thoughts are like radio waves and our brains have subtle 'receivers' in them. Therefore, we subconsciously 'read' each other all of time. Wouldn't that explain why we attract to us those things that we put our focus onto? Like attracts like. Different frequencies keep moving on until they find a like-minded frequency? That would also explain telepaths ability to 'read' others. Do they have a supercharged 'receiver'?
It's believed that our thoughts aren't trapped in time like our bodies are. I read somewhere a few years ago that they can still pick up Hitler's broadcasts in airwaves. They're old and fuzzy but they're still out there. Is clairvoyant simply picking up thought frequencies from future? The people on Titantic would have put out hugely intense strong thoughts and nightmare emotions about ship going down. Those thought vibes went out through cosmos and found their way to people about to get onboard Titantic. They 'felt' thought vibes of people drowning in future and then changed their minds about getting on ship? I suspect it's some aspect of that dynamic that makes it possible to telepathically 'read' someone's future or past?
Masculine Energy versus Feminine EnergyWritten by Skye Thomas
I have been reading a lot lately about concepts of masculine and feminine energy. It all sort of goes along with yin and yang definitions of masculine and feminine. I do not think I need to define differences for you. The ideas I feel called to address today have more to do with finger pointing and blame going on in spiritual communities. Some religions believe in a masculine god and others in a feminine goddess. There is this snobbish assumption that only one is correct and that other belief is foolish and misguided. Each believes that if everyone would subscribe to their particular vision of power, then all would be right with world.
There is a lot of talk among new age communities about a return to feminine energy and a return to feminine leadership. Somehow, it is believed that with women in charge we will somehow clean up all of world's problems and magically bring civilization back to a place of beauty and harmony living off land in a peaceful nurturing way. I even read an article recently written by a new age man asking where we women were and when would we be coming back to fix mess that he feels men have made of our planet. Wow! What a big responsibility!
My first response to reading this man's well written essay about how men had really screwed things up with their greed and testosterone filled war like natures, was to say "It's not my job to fix your mess! Where do you get off making a mess and then asking when someone else is going to clean up? Why not ask men when they're going to clean up after themselves?" Once I calmed down though, I got to thinking about feminine energy and how it works. I rethought my answers and thought that I should say, "Feminine energy by definition is gentle and nurturing, healing and loving. You won't see us come charging in like warriors gone to battle. Our effects will be subtle and beautiful like breeze blowing leaves of a tree."
Having stewed over topic for a few more weeks, I have some more enlightened thoughts to share. Why is it even referred to as masculine or feminine? Have you never seen a female fight to death to protect her family? Have you never seen a man cry for magic of seeing his child born? Do you think that women aren't capable of being greedy and selfish? Do you really believe that men aren't capable of being healers? Whatever happened to belief that both energies lie within all of us? Men didn't create these problems anymore then women did. It takes one to agree to be victimized. If women truly wanted to take power, they're smart enough to overcome physical strength differences. The truth is, we agreed to a philosophical view that men were smarter, stronger, and closer to god then we are. We chose to subscribe to that just like they did.
