What factors allow us to sense that deeper connection more precisely and become conscious of it ?
If you read the stuff a couple of pages back on 'portals' - energy etc my understanding is that when we are conscious of the portals opening, when we take the opportunity to 'open' ourselves, be aware of the portals into the unmanifested, then the connections become stronger.
To my way of thinking it's merely empathy - removing the barriers between us. For me it can be removing the barriers between anything.
I also think it's not 'new' it's our ancient way of being that has been discouraged through fear (from persecution) and removing ourselves too far from our natural senses and connection to the natural world and all living things. Until power became something attained through deception, making 'enemy, obstacle, means of an end' of others, there was no reason to hide anything from anyone. Once folks created and worshipped 'man-made' power and punishment 'laws' at the expense of the understanding of the natural powers and laws it seems to have diminished in human kind.
But, this is my question - has it - in reality, diminshed? - or is it just more often denied, 'explained away' in a way that allows folks to 'ignore' both their awareness of others and our oneness and the responsibilities that come with that?
Now in human form there are things such as privacy, boundaries that people appreciate - and so they should. If you've watched the movie the Hereafter discussed at the beginning of this thread you will know it's not a parlour trick, or anything that should be misused. It comes with a great deal of responsibility, but mostly in knowing what is not within your ability to respond to or about - what is none of your business. That each of us is travelling our own journey that will unfold as it will depends on each of us opening our eyes, hearts, minds; to know ourselves and be love with others.
I am happy for folks to 'unfold' to me as they see fit, on their own terms. What I sense I don't know, or can't imagine that others don't sense the same way. Maybe I'm just more open with it - you know like the child saying 'But the emperor's got no clothes on, when for all reason that was not some super human power of perception, merely honesty.
As to your first question - the example linked was what I 'felt' for that poster's girlfriend - through his connection and love with her. He knew something was not right with her emitting energies, but he 'explained it away' with his focus being on rising awareness. I guess others would have to ask themselves if they do this too - explain it away, or if they sense the same things. Through many long years and experiential 'translating' energies I've come to know what quite a lot of the frequencies 'may' represent.
I think we all have this ability.
