Feelings and Extraordinary Statesmjawer2020-07-31T14:49:30+00:00
Some people, through their unique processing of feeling, are able to perceive things much differently than the rest of us. They may instantly feel someone else’s pain…taste shapes or hear colors…have extraordinary artistic, musical or mathematical talents… see energies around people…remember someone else’s life…or experience apparitions. These individuals possess a unique emotional heritage. We can learn a great deal about human development – and the unimagined contours of the world we live in – by taking their perceptions seriously.
“Seventy percent of apparent past life memories involve the recall of a person who had died violently or unnaturally. The degree to which children show heightened emotion in recounting these apparent memories is a tipoff that something truly significant is going on.”
“’Telesomatic’ refers to spontaneously feeling someone else’s pain at a distance. Such experiences almost always take place between people who share empathic, loving bonds: parents and children, spouses, siblings, lovers.”
“Feeling is ground zero for all sensibilities, all our perceptions, memories, dreams, and insights. What we feel – especially if deep or intense – has the capacity to bridge what is physical, mental, and emotional.”
“The bodymind and its energetic processes are what propel any out-of-body, near-death, or mystical experience. People who undergo these experiences are likely to feel profoundly transformed: psychologically, emotionally, spiritually.”
