What connection do all of these share? This will emphasize the importance of getting to know your own mind and body (emotions).
Channelling presents direct evidence of communication with a different level of reality that is not visible to us. There are intelligent brings, human consciousnesses who can communicate with us via our minds. The better one knows their own mind, the more accurate the channelled information is. The communication happens via impressions sent which are interpreted by the channeller’s mind. The impressions are in the form of a feeling sense of something containing possibly some imagery and emotion. If you are not aware of your own impressions, you could confuse your impressions with those received from a non- physical consciousness communicating via channelling. Your interpretation of the impressions is determined by your beliefs. So the same impression sent to different people could be translated differently by each one. The more one is aware of their own thoughts and impressions, the more one can accurately receive impressions from an outside entity.
Spirit removal is a rare occupation filled by people trained to detect and remove some of these non-physical consciousnesses who are bothering people. This can be an unwelcome channelling entity, an entity who is sending impressions of negative emotion and/or negative thoughts. Dome entities can be felt physically as a slight force applied to the body. Most of the problems come from being plagued by tormented thoughts. The impact of interaction with a negative consciousness can be alleviated by knowing ones own mind – being familiar with your own thoughts, impressions and resulting emotions. Your own thoughts should resonate within your body because they resonate with your beliefs. If a thought produces a negative body response, then it is possibly being introduced by a negative entity or is your own which you haven’t yet dismissed. If it persists and seems out of your control, a negative entity may be involved. This is when a spirit removal expert is benefial. You can train yourself to be aware of your own thoughts and ignore the persistent negative ones. This can discourage the negative entity from interfering. Inexplicable waves of emotion can also be caused by the interaction with a non-physical entity. The conclusion here us that we are not alone one Earth, we live in a physicality that has many levels of existence, including less dense ones. This dense reality is perceived through or bodies. When we die and leave our bodies, we perceive differently because we no longer have the mechanism to interact with and perceive this dense reality. So the non-physical beings interacting with us are currently not incarnated in a human body.
Religion has been around as long as humans have existed. The persistent theme is good vs evil and the human trying to adhere to strict standards of goodness. Within much of the Christian religious texts are encouragements to get to know thyself. In this way, a person can withstand evil which originates in the mind with a negative thought. If you keep thinking a negative thought that resonates in your body with a negative emotion, you acclimate yourself to feeling bad. This becomes your comfort zone. Any feelings outside of this zone are rejected. You need the use if your conscious mind and self-discipline to overcome this slip into temptation. Religion references channelling and non-physical entities (dead people for instance). A negative entity is known as a demon and can influence your weaknesses (temptation) so that you are more likely to give in. They can also give you impressions similare to your own, but slightly different so that you are influenced to behave in a way you otherwise wouldn’t or to change a belief you otherwise wouldn’t.
I’d like to address more of these ideas in future entries. All of these ideas rely on mindfulness, or an awareness of one’s own mind and self discipline to become aligned with your true self regardless of outside influence. This includes influence from peers in society as well.
I’d like input from readers on techniques you use to stop thoughts. Thoughts are interpretation of impressions you sense when interacting with the environment. First you observe, then you receive an impression and translate this impression into thoughts. The thoughts, if you pay attention to them, become a story about what you are observing. If you could stop at the initial impression without generating and following thoughts, then you would be open to a different experience that you might have missed. The train of thoughts, if followed would create a story or definition which limits the experience, than if you just observe and let the experience unfold.
A technique I use is to fully focus on what I am observing, with my full awareness taking in all of my surroundings. Since my attention is captivated by observing, I don’t even think about thinking.
Other methods might include meditation, filling the head with music (which I also do), concentrating on a simple mantra while observing, concentrating on the breath, or just giving the mind something to do to distract it from what you are observing (visualizing a simple image, like a shape for instance). If you do see a thought, the you can visualize hitting it out of the park with a baseball bat as it passes by without engaging it.
Please share any techniques you use to quiet the mind and stop your thoughts.
