Some Thoughts on Telepathy

I have observed that telepathy is very natural. To be adept at telepathy takes lots of observation and practise.

We tend to think of telepathy as someone apart from you sending a thought to you which you try to pick up. To be able to read another’s thought one has to be coming from the premise that we are all separate. I appear to be separate. I feel like a unique entity with my own thoughts and desires. On the other hand, I have had many experiences that suggests that there is only one thinker. Is there only one thinker? Are there many of us thinking? Or is it the one thinker thinking as the many? How do you get around this paradox?

I believe both statements are true. The one is appearing as the many. I, as part of the many, am a microcosm of the One. What the One has, the many has. The One is like the Internet while the many in forms represent different users tapping into the Internet. A user either has his own interpretation/reality of the Internet or can share a collective reality of the Internet. Thus, I need not concern myself with what the many are doing. I am only concerned with what I am doing.

One thing I know is that I am omnipresent, i.e. I see myself as existing in every time and space. How can I be omnipresent when there is only one Enocia sitting right here typing this article. Let’s look at it this way. In 3-D reality, the closer you are to a fire, the hotter you become. As you move further away from the flame, you reach a point when you can no longer feel the heat, yet you are still aware that the flame still exists. I like to see my real self, Enocia, as representing the central flame. The parts of me that can’t feel the flame are parts of me that are omnipresent. In other words, to be omnipresent is to have awareness of one’s presence; awareness of the flame. And what is true for me is true for the many.

What does all this have to do with telepathy? Since everyone is omnipresent, it means wherever I am there is awareness of myself and awareness of the many. Every moment contains the potential to read someone’s thoughts. It matters not what is going on with the other, I can still get an updated version right where I am.

I experience different types of telepathy: from picking up my emails remotely to channelling information from books or the Internet. I have found that in order for me to read telepathic messages, I need to know how to interpret the messages. I find symbols very useful.

Enocia is a symbol for who I am but Enocia is not who I am. Names remind me of people. I also use other symbols to represent friends and family such as the name of a place, pub, car or whatever; something I can work with.

The other day I noticed a pub I hadn’t seen before. The name of the pub was the same as my friend’s former married name. I knew there was a reason why I was thinking of her and her ex-husband right at that moment. When I went to pick up my email, there was an email from her. She even made reference to her ex-husband. I had been reading her email telepathically.

Two days ago, I noticed a little basket my mother has. Her aunt, who passed away two years ago, actually weaved it and had given it to my mother as a gift. Why was I thinking of her right at that moment? My cousin, the deceased woman’s daughter, paid my mother and I an unexpected visit that evening. It would seem I had picked up on her intention.

Recently, I noticed a particular friend’s name popping up all over the place. One morning a van with my friend’s name drove by. When I went to collect my email, I found an email from another friend with the same name. My friend said he’d been thinking about me from time to time and sending nice thoughts my way. No wonder I had noticed his name but had attributed it to another friend. The lesson here is that I should ensure that everyone I know has their own unique symbol to avoid confusion.

Just recently, I walked by a man who reminded me of my cousin. For a moment it was as if my cousin was standing right there. Later that day, I learned that my cousin was seriously ill. My mother had received the phone call about him (my cousin) at the same time I had seen my cousin’s face superimposed on that man’s face earlier.

Some telepathic messages I have picked up on have caused me to act in a particular way. A while back, I had an urge to reconfigure my laptop. Then I realised there was no logical reason why I should be doing this. I abandoned the task. The next day I read an email from a friend asking me how to configure her laptop. I had picked up her message and acted upon the thoughts as if they were my own.

Which leads to an interesting point. I have lost count of how many times I have picked up on someone’s thoughts, presuming I am the thinker. This is why it’s very important to be true to yourself. Someone might have a suggestion about something. Since you are open, you pick up on the idea and act upon the idea. You feel conflicted within: part of you thinks it’s a great idea while another part doesn’t like the idea at all. How do you resolve this conflict? How do you know what is your stuff?

Years ago during meditation I had the idea to read the Christian Science text book, “Science and Health.” Part of me thought I should pursue with the study and become a Christian Science practitioner while another part thought it wasn’t the right path for me, that I should take what I can from the book but not practise the religion or any religion for that matter. I got into a conflict. How could I be telling myself to study the book and then telling myself to move away from it? I had to ask myself what I really wanted. What did I really want out of life? I realised that I had made the right decision to read the book but it wasn’t right for me to become a Christian Scientist. I believe inner conflict is usually my way of telling myself that I am not being true to myself.

I find books and the Internet the most common ways I pick up on telepathic thoughts. Some might call this channelling. They happen in two ways: conscious and unconscious channelling. I would sit in silence for a while and then end up with tons of information, as if I’ve downloaded stuff from the Internet. Later, I would go to a bookshop and pick up a book I am drawn to and read the same information I had “downloaded” earlier. The information is always relevant to something I’m working on at the time. This is an example of unconscious channelling.

There are times when I consciously channel information. Once, I thought I would channel information about rejuvenation from the Ascended Masters Babaji and St Germain, who I’d heard lived for hundreds of years and still looked the same. I sat in silence and put the intent that I wished to have information from the two Ascended Masters. I promptly fell asleep. The next day I went to a bookshop. I picked up a book of channelled writings. In one chapter, a woman had channelled teachings from St Germain and Babaji about rejuvenation. Just what I needed.

How do I protect myself from information overload, which could result in inner conflict? There are two ways I achieve this. First, I put out the intent that I only attract information that pertains to my life choices. I am not likely to pick up email messages from people I don’t know, in the human sense of the word. Generally, only people I know telephone or email me, apart from the odd spam mails. Tuning out unwanted thoughts is like tuning into a television or satellite channel I wish to watch. The rest doesn’t concern me.

I have to bear in mind, however, that though I may not necessarily be interested in other information, it is imperative that I stay open. I need to be aware of stuff while at the same time not aware of stuff. One way I can have access to all information is by being in silence. Inner Silence is all wisdom. In silence, I am wisdom, yet, I am not overwhelmed as the information is being communicated in silence. If I wish to have information relevant to whatever I’m experiencing, I put out the intent and the silence transmutes itself into the needed material.

Finally, if I can pick up on thoughts at will, is there a way I can prevent people reading my thoughts. Yes there is. By being in silence. When I am not thinking there is nothing to pick up on, is there?

Telepathy is going round us all the time. It is our nature to be all knowing. It’s a matter of paying attention and staying open.

Most of all, telepathy is a lot of fun.
