Sensing Other’s Thoughts & Feelings

on February 15, 2012

I recently had a new experience. I had a brief awareness of another person’s thoughts and feelings. Over the last several years, I have become more sensitive to my surroundings. Life has been more intense and my moods stronger. Certain people and situations tend to bring out specific attitudes and emotions within me. I have always wondered whether it was their vibe I was feeling or my own. Ultimately I decided it just didn’t matter. In either case I act the same. I choose to behave in the most loving way and I choose to be with whatever feelings arise in me. My best guess was that the vibe was shared. Those people and situations irritated me because deep down they reminded me of a part of myself which I have not yet reconciled.

A recent experience helped me to clarify this question. During this event, instead of wondering where the vibe was coming from, I instantly knew that it was another person’s. This instant knowing was not based on a process of deduction. But, when I did analyze the situation, it supported my instant intuition. For example, the situation occurred at a time in which my mind was very peaceful and quiet. I was very connected with my surroundings and open for God. I was sitting in a train, in this wakeful yet meditative state when a young woman walked by me. There was nothing about her behaviors that drew my attention. She looked like any other passenger. I did not find her appearance necessarily attractive nor did our eyes meet. Yet, the moment she walked by I was impacted by a strong sexual energy in my lower body. There was also a brief flurry of sexual imagery that filled my mind. I felt no sense of identification with those thoughts or feelings. In that open, relaxed state this energy just passed right through me. The thoughts and feelings were gone as quickly as they appeared. I immediately realized that she was full of suppressed sexual energy and fantasies. I had sensed it. I occasionally have my own sexual energy and thoughts, but it was very clear to me on later reflection that this was a totally different experience.

I am grateful for this experience. Even though this capability did not last, I know that the potential exists within me. I can also see how this capability will help me alleviate the suffering of others. The open and peaceful state that allowed this to happen was the result of 24/7 holistic efforts in my life to improve the quality of my love. I can see how what I do at work, at home, during travel and recreation all impacts my ability to help people when the opportunity arises. This experience has motivated me to be even more firm and gentle on my spiritual path of love. God bless.
