Chances are that no one remembers my first post here, so I'll reiterate real quick:

A long time ago when I was a child, I was approached by a gang who tried to mug me with a pocket knife, cornered by a fence. Next thing I knew, I was on the other side of the fence and the gang was just reacting.

Another time in my childhood, I was riding a bike down a sharp hill. I flew through the intersection and was about to get hit by a semi truck. Spontaneously, my bike dramatically speed up, just enough to narrowly miss it. Not smart, I know, but I was young.

Now for the main point:

Both instances involved mortal fear. I later in life found that I'm able to sense energies, but usually can't identify them, because they're so faint. Sometimes I've detected what I bleieve to be a ghost here and there, but they usually wouldn't stick around after I noticed them. I can't see them, just sense them. My theory on how to improve this ability is to be in a dark room with no light at all and practice manuevering around without bumping into things, by relying on the energy frequencies around me. I've tried this a little in the past and got to the point where I can sense objects, but can't judge distance or depth. Just partial direction.

For clarity purposes, I have given this the term "energy frequencies" because what I sense varies alot. I don't know if what I'm sensing is hidden entities or the actual world around me like the air, ground, buildings, living things grass and trees. I can't determine what is what unless I single out an individial "pattern" (recurring segment of the frequency)

It is my theory that once I recognize a pattern, learn to understand it, and get a grasp on it by successfully memorizing the pattern, I can control it. This theory is born by those rare occurances mentioned above. See, when I felt that chaotic moment of mortal fear, I instictively froze up, which cleared my mind. The only thing I thought about in that second was what I felt. I didn't realize at the time that I had automatically analized the energy frequency within me, grasped it devoid of distractions with perfect disclipline and made strictly the right changes to end the danger.

Simply put, this is like hacking reality. And come to think of it, though I know nothing about computer hacking, this frequency seems alot like computer code, but of course of an entirely different format. I've been trying all my life to figure this out. But it might help if I know what category of paranormal this is. I think it might be similar to witchcraft, but definitely not the same thing because it's not about charms and incantations.

Whatever this is, it's pure, neutral and independant. Sound familiar to anyone?

It sounds kind of familiar. Isn't that like when Harry was afraid of other kids making fun of him after his aunt cut his hair and messed it up. The next day it was back to normal! I remember Frodo was afraid that the black riders were going to catch him while he was running to cross the water to Bree. I thought he might get caught but all of a sudden he sort of sped up and made it. Another instance involving mortal fear and magic was when Jacob transformed into a werewolf to save Bella before another werewolf tore her apart. Now I know he had superior werewolf skills but that didn't explain everything to me so I guess her fear created magic to make him save her, even though it didn't matter in the end because she fell for Edward.

Finally remember when Morpheus was caught by the agents? I remember thinking "Wow, that guy is so badass, he isn't scared at all!". But now that you brought it up I see how that may have been to his disadvantage because Neo was scared of everything and never got caught!

My main point is that there seems to be many recorded instances of mortal fear which caused magic to save someone who needed it. Interesting concept. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/Laie_28.gif)

It sounds like those instances are from scripted works of fiction, which I don't understand how they can be taken into account.

But the concept of Jacob is that he's a werewolf who can turn at will, and a supernatural creature of such would naturally have heightened senses to detect the commotion.
Are you referring to Harry Potter? I don't remember that from the movies, but its been a while since I seen them. Perhaps the writers of these stories subconsciencely got these ideas from the same concept.

Neo got caught in the first movie the first time the agents were after him. He almost escaped but was too scared to climb down the building. But what I remember from the movies, once Neo realised his powers, he was never afraid of anything, even when his eyes were burned out at the end of the 3rd movie. He had the confidence that he could still take the agent who infected that guys body.

Also, I just realized that I misplaced this thread. Could a moderator please move it to the appropriate place?

In my experiences I find that the spiritual dimension exists at what could be described as a quicker pace, somewhat faster then we are able to think and you'd assume it would be around the speed of light I guess!!! When it commune's with us they have to bring their energy down to us which seems somehow a little difficult, and for us we need to be able to increase our spiritual energy which as we all know takes a lot of practise to get any level of progress unless born with a gift for it. In that context ritual is like a pact where you indicate your genuine desire to in effect justify their effort to try and meet you 'half way' to allow communication to occur. When the human body switches into a unconscious reationary mode you are switching up your brain speed by removing the computational loads of conscious thought and when this happens it might have the side effect of training your mind to better work with the unconscious mind which in turn might help you percieve and work with the spiritual.

Very good insight, Adder. That could explain why its nearly impossible to do elemental magic as it requires perfect mental disclipline as well as a perfect understanding of energy. Until I learn of an official term, I label elemental as the category of magic (like wicca, left hand path, sorcerory, etc)

The reason I call it elemental is because energy is composed of atoms, the basic building blocks of fire, water, earth and air. And this concept is about bending those to ones will. The possibilities of elemental appear to be:

- Modifying the physical structure of an object, changing it to rubber, glass, orfor example
- Charging particles to create fire, radiation and etc.
- Breaking down molucules to create water or air


EDIT: Also, something else I just thought about, recalling the memory of the muggers at the fence. Getting on the other side of the fence was so fast, I never did figure out how it happened. But I do remember a look on their faces as if they saw a ghost. Could it be that I displaced the atoms of the fence and stumbled through, then restore its solidity simply because my conscience mind was trapped on the memory that the fence is solid and can't possibly be anything but?

This question implies that with a strong enough mind, if one can force themselve's to perceive something differently, like steel being plastic, then it can become so.
Of course it can't be that simple because insane people in psychiatric wards would be making chaos. Realistically following this belief, I think it's safe to say that perception of an object is just one factor in making it so. Perhaps the other is strict mental focus and disclipline. I get the feeling there's an additional factor, but I haven't figured it out yet.

They probably did see a ghost. You. There are a number of reports of "almost" car crashes where one car appears to go through another with no damage. I can't do this but I've had something like it done for me. It isn't altering matter, it's temporarily "stepping aside" from normal reality. It isn't "you" doing it; it's someone/something with a higher development doing it for you. If the unconscious minds of people in danger could do this reliably there would be no car crashes.

There is a form of magick called "elemental", usually taught to a neophyte. It involves using the Western concept of four elements (Earth, Water, Air, Fire) and establishing communication with and control of those elements and setting up a habitual pattern of response by reality, thus giving control of real world manifestations of the mental constructs. See Franz Bardon's "Initiation into Hermetics" for one system.

The additional factor in magickal effects is energy. The effectiveness of a magickal working is often determined by how much energy can be controlled.

BTW, maneuvering in the dark usually isn't magick; see "Echos of Bats and Men" by Donald Griffin for a series of experiments in human echolocation. The sensation starts as "feeling with the forehead" of distant objects. It's real; I developed it when I was a kid (and lost most of the ability when my hearing deteriorated). Astral vision is different; there you see living things more clearly than inanimate objects.

I don't mean to sound arrogant, but I must say that you(Barnard) should ignore most of these posts. I have the same sense for energies, and yes, working in the dark does help it to develop. And no, it is much different than echolocation.

BUT, I have a question, how do you sense these energies? Do you feel them as if they are a part of you, or do you see them? Something else altogether?

I feel them like vibrations and the way they feel differs with different entities Sometimes the sensation will translate as a vauge shape, like a solid object, say a kitchen counter. To describe this sensation, it feels like the physical object is "reaching out to me" if that makes any sense. To make it even more clear, imagine someone reaching out and tapping your shoulder in the dark. You don't know exactly where the person is, but you can determine the general direction. The similarity is high, but the actual detection is very faint.

For something I can't actually see or touch, and cannot identify, I usually get a different sensation. This sometimes feels like a rhythm of vibrations (energy frequency as I call it) Sometimes even though I can't see it, I can judge the general size and shape. This was proven to me when I was staying at a friends house for the weekend. I pointed out that I sensed something, and she told me to stop pointing. I asked her why and she told me that was her guardian spirit, something she was able to see, but I could not. She was very surprised that I was even able to detect it.

How do you sense these energies?

Stepping aside from normal reality... An interesting theory, but my paranormal instincts, seemingly the source of my magical knowledge, but was never taught or learned (I know it sounds like a parody) doesn't seem to coincide with the concept of alternate worlds. Maybe it is possible, but there's a low chance I'm capable of that. You said a higher power, any specific entity in mind?

Speaking of, that brings up another idea. Is it common for people who have the gift to have an additional instinct that guides them to using it like how you use your limbs for the first time?

Strange. Maybe it isn't the same ability. Or maybe it is, but a variation of it. When I sense things I see them, regardless of light. Its like what I hear seeing auras is like, except it's more like I'm seeing the composition of the energies rather than the energies themselves, if that makes any sense. Another way of explaining it would be that I don't only see the energies of living things. The easiest thing for me to see is something I have dubbed "Death Essence", the energy released from the body upon death.

I suppose I assumed it was the same ability due to the light/dark thing.

VitalWinds, I was very confused when I first developed echolocation; I thought I was becoming clairvoyant. IMO it's important to distinguish that from astral sight (or sensitivity). To test: get a set of wax or silicone earplugs and a set of over-the-ear headphones or earmuffs (you have to block all sound, the ears are very sensitive). Put them both on and try maneuvering in the dark. If you can't, it's echolocation (which is very useful if you practice, but that's another story).

To me, astral sight works like regular sight; in total darkness and with eyes closed living things (people, animals, plants) glow in outline. Entities also glow but usually look different. Non-living things are dim but perceptible. How does it appear to you?

Barnard, what you're describing is a sensitivity presenting itself to your conscious mind through a kind of extended touch. It's very common for non-physical senses to be interpreted that way since there's no normal sense organ generating the info. If you can sense entities at least part of it isn't echolocation.

I wasn't talking about parallel worlds, just being temporarily outside the normal influence of real-world interactions. I've read a number of reports of this so the specific entity isn't important.

Vital Winds, maybe you do have the same ability, but perhaps it evolved to allow you to see what you might have originally just felt. It makes sense as if you feel something so clearly, you can visualize it and maybe then at that point, your eyes translate feeling into sight. Just a theory.

Waterfall, I think I might be more like Vital Winds because this ability also applies to emotions, and I have a very recent example to explain. Remember my mention of turning the robbers intimidation against him at the gas station I used to work at?

On the weekend, a woman asked me to go to the store to get cigarettes. She was paying, but I didn't want to go because it was 1:30 in the morning. Yea, we tend to stay up late. Niether of us have a street legal vehicle, so I didn't want to go. So she went to 2 of her family members and asked them to do the walk instead. At that point, I thought, "Are you freaking serious! Are you not thinking?"
I told them to forget it and I'd go. As I reached an intersection, a car drove by, turned around and nearly pulled up beside me. I could clearly sense a corrupt evil in that car, something like the intention of an act of gang initiation.

I was able to sense the presence of that emotion like how I can sense physical or spiritual entities. So I did the same thing I did with the robber - reflected the negative energy back at them. What happened next was beyond my expectations - Just before stopping, the car suddenly sped up, screeching its tires, and flew through a red light (didn't fly literally). My only backup plan if energy redirection didn't work was to physically defend myself and if that didn't work, attempt to harness the energy from the rising tension of an ambush for defensive magic, like what I did way back when the thugs had me cornered at the fence as a boy, which is extremely unlikely at this point in time.

I told them everything I just told you and they did not take me seriously. If it was them going, they could have been shot or stabbed.


EDIT: Also Is it common for people who have the gift to have an additional instinct that guides them to using it like how you use your limbs for the first time?
I know I asked that before but wasn't sure if anyone noticed that message.

EDIT AGAIN: One more thing I should add is that I recently moved into a new apartment and I've noticed a different energy signature, particularly behind the shower curtain and outside the backdoor. The shower curtain waved slowly, which could have been a draft. These were most evident when alone. I'm not saying I think the place is haunted. The reality could be far from it. Looking, I saw nothing. That's the tricky part of this ability. The reason the sensation was more clear without others nearby was that I wasn't sensing their energies too, which causes more confusion in sorting out what I'm sensing.

It could be nothing more then a draft that I was sensing. Or maybe the risidual energy of the previous occupants. I don't know anything about them, just that they left a lot of things behind. They could be alive and well, while still leaving behind a trail of their past. Maybe what I was sensing outside could have been the former presence of children playing outside or maybe even memories. If that's the case, judging the intensity of the sensation, it may be safe to say that they spent a great deal of time out there. Or maybe it was pets out there, which makes more sense if the outside occupancy was so frequent.

Does anyone know if its possible for a remnant or copy of peoples memories can linger in an area? If you believe in psychics, this theory makes sense.
