Alright, so I'm stretching on the "X" part for my word of the week here for the Pagan Blog Project...
But that's ok, because here in my blogspot, I am the Creator and I can do whatever I want.
(I love that part :)
ESP or Extrasensory Perception has been described as MANY things:
Telepathy (mind reading- or transfer of info from person to person)
Clairvoyance (clear vision)
Clairaudience (clear hearing)
Clairsentince (clear feeling/sensing)
Clairalience (clear smelling)
Claircognizance (clear knowing)
Clairgustance (clear tasting- being able to taste something and know it yet not having put it in the mouth to actually taste it)
and the great catchall of "Intuition" or the ever popular... "Gut Feeling".
There have been many tests done on subjects that display these powers and the scientific community is still split on proving whether Extrasensory Perception exists or not.
But if it doesn't exist, then why are people convinced that it takes place?
I personally, get messages to call someone and when I do, they have just thought about me or need me at that moment. I can usually say who's calling on the phone before we answer it....things like that.
What is ESP? Well, I think this is something akin to "Animal Instinct." Why do birds migrate to a place they've never been to before? And butterflies travel thousands of miles and all wind up at the same place at the same time. Bears shut down their bodies and hibernate for months and wake up at exactly the perfect time in the spring to mate. Isn't that amazing?!
Well, why do we get messages from people or things that come in to us out of the blue? I think it is a version of "Animal Instinct" but only it's "Human Instinct". We, as humans, receive information and are given clues through intuition, clairvoyance or telepathy. But as a species, we are tamping down this gift of awareness with suspicion of it being quackery or fakery. Television also is dulling our senses to perception. It changes up our sensitivities and frequency reception. Our lives are one big To Do list and going off schedule or off the beaten path is foreign to some people.
Those things in effect, flick a switch and disengage our instinctual gifts.
So today, I only ask that you Tune In to yourself.
Timothy O'Leary was right about a few things:
TUNING IN is a choice we make to hear our Intuition.
TURNING ON to receiving the information is another choice.
DROPPING OUT is one of the things we also have to do in order to drop out of the mainstream sheep way of thinking in order to become aware of our own instincts.
Be Xtrasensitive to the world around you....and IN YOU today.
