Okay, so, you know how you see people and you think, "Huh. They look familiar." You may not know them, but something about them looks familiar to you?
Take that concept, and erase image.
How do you know your friends? People you connect with? Say you're in line at a store, and you see your friend, but they don't see you. When you see them, your stomach - your soul - your gut - sends you signs. You recognize them.
Maybe you don't see them fully, but you still - somehow - know it's them.
Maybe, you hear the end of a quiet laugh. There's a 'ping' in your soul.
Maybe, it's a hair flip you catch. Or, the way they shift their weight from one foot to the other. A 'ping'.
What is energy? Sensing? All the feelers and shit I mention? Being empathetic? Just being able to 'tell'?
Having all those 'ping's go off in your soul, your stomach, your gut... without having to actually see anything at all.
It's getting all the same 'ping's, and having actually seen nothing.
Still accurate. Regardless what it's in reference to. A person, a place, a thing. Doesn't matter.
People always wait for the 'proof'. Which, in cases of energy and intuition, is the visual proof. The tangible things. The, "Yep, right here." Or, "See? There it is."
Energy, intuition, is operating out of sheer faith. Trust. Knowledge of what is greater than you. Not needing any proof. Furthermore, it's knowing when you go against said internal judgement and wisdom... It's always been bad. You've always, on some level, known better.
Yes. You did.
Energy reading or sensing, and intuition and all that involves, isn't something given to the select few. No. It's universal. Everyone has it. Everyone is able to use it.
It's just the socially mandated 'proof' that keeps everyone from listening to it.
Once you can wrap your brain around the concept and examples I've stated above... Then, you can add - in the same energy - feeling a 'spirit'. And once you get to know said spirit, you just know when they're around. Inside.
I talked with a kind of new friend today about life and all that fun stuff. Really deep talk, and we know I love those.
She said, "You're an empath, aren't you?"
I was shocked. Kind of. "Yeah. Are you?"
"Yeah. Kind of. You've just got that look."
"Yeah. You're quiet, but you don't look far away. You look like you're always processing and analyzing more than what's just been said."
I shook my head, "Damn. You're good."
We can usually spot each other, too. A sad giveaway that I've only realized recently was when someone's had a horrible story. So far.
I met another girl the other day who is a secret drug user. She's so nice and kind, and she's really got something special... But, she's still working her way around her lessons. She doesn't know yet.
But when you feel those people, you notice how they do gravitate toward each other.
One thing that I've been very proud of, and my mediums have all told me is, "People instantly feel safe with you. They know, from the second they sit down with you - or stand across from you - they're safe."
This girl didn't know me at all, and came up to me asking me for help with some really deep and personal shit.
How did she know I help people with that stuff? I didn't say I did.
She knew. Internally. Somewhere, she knew. And she listened to it.
Her energy felt my energy, and she knew she was safe.
It's that familiar thing. The tells that give your friend away when their back is to you. Only, we don't use our eyes.
It's something in our soul, our spirit, navigating us toward each other.
It's the 'ping' we get in our spirit that lets us know we're safe, or going the right way, wrong way, so forth.
Once you follow it, keep listening to it and obeying youe intuition and the energy, it only gets stronger.
Keep following the path of light and love inside you. You are your own compass in life.
Here's an exercise I recommend:
* Before you do exercise, if you choose to do it, find a quiet space and do this meditation. I'm not kidding:
Pick one person. Someone very safe, close to you. Someone you trust. If you can't find someone you would literally trust with your soul, then just be cautious in this activity and don't tell anyone you're doing it. Especially not them.
Hang out with them. One on one. Somewhere other people aren't. At a home, or somewhere alone. Totally platonic, or it won't be beneficial to you.
Don't really talk. Try and wipe yourself of emotions and thoughts and feelings. A literal blank slate. Emotionally, and spiritually.
Maybe say something to get a conversation started, but do as little talking as possible. Sit, ask the Angels to help you expand your energy and pick up on theirs. What's going on. Ask for help with your own abilities as an empath. Yes, asking silently is as affective as aloud.
Wait. Figure out what your gut is doing. Saying. Feeling. Seeing. Are you suddenly nervous when you weren't before? Do you randomly feel angry? Is there anything popping up that wasn't before?
What does this person feel like? Airy? Heavy? Light? Dark? Jumbled? All put together? Sad? Happy?
Once you think you've got something - keep a blank slate - and make an excuse to walk away.
Get as far away as you can...
...is it gone?
Whatever you had felt. Is it gone now? From inside of yourself?
It probably is.
Because that was their energy.
Play with that a little. You'll get better as you go along.
Then, after awhile, that can extend to just seeing a picture of someone, or just hearing someone's voice over the phone.
Energy is everything. It's continuous. Might wanna just figure it out!
A word of caution:
Once you do 'get it', which everyone can, it does become quite overwhelming.
Like when I went to that secret LGAT recruiting session. Walking into a room full of sad or broken people will, in fact, nearly shut you down.
I almost had to leave the room everything was so dark and cloudy feeling. I remember having to fight with myself not to have a sort of internal suffocation.
On the other side, walking into a room full of energetic people - or spending one on one time with someone that's, say, full of anxiety or hyper energy will have the same effects on you.
Just looking at a waitress, or standing behind a stranger in line will have you like, "Wow. Why are they so angry?" Or, "You need a nap!"
You've done it before. You just didn't know you were doing it.
You thought of that person right before they called. You had your hand on the phone right before it rang. You met someone, looked twice, then ended up being BFF's. You didn't go down a road that later, the news told you there was some horrific accident on.
It's a blessing, and a sad reality. Blessing for all the wonderful things it assists you with. Sad because, well, other people just don't get it - and it's hard to control or purge lingering energies sometimes.
If you ever have trouble, just google. Or carry a crystal. Or, ask your Angel's for help.
But, overall, I recommend it. Getting familiar. It can, quite literally, save your ass.
This is a great meditation to do before and after, if you want to get into the energy game as a real player and not a pawn in the game:
Fun facts about Archangel Michael:
Homie is HUGE. I mean, insanely huge.
He's everywhere. He really is. The second you ask for him, WHAM. There.
He's quiet. Really quiet, but powerful.
I've only audibly heard him once. I said, "I wish you were always here." And he whispered, "But I am."
Besides, Doreen Virtue is fantastic. She's the real deal, and she's totally safe.
