Do you ever notice a discrepancy between what someone is telling you and how you are feeling internally? If so, there may be something this person isn’t really telling you. Just today, I was having small talk with one of my coworkers and while she was all smiles and “positivity”, inside I was feeling intense tugs at my solar plexus. I don’t know about you, but my stomach never lies. So I began to tune in and really look beneath the surface. And while she was busy rattling away about God-knows what, I could see the stress and tension oozing out of her pores, like a volcano ready to burst.
Over the years, I’ve learned to become deeply attuned to my subtle feelings and carefully observe people around me. My mentor explained to me that if we are to really perceive things on a deeper level, we need to first learn to silence the mind. A great exercise for quietening down thoughts is entering into 3 or 4 points of attention, which opens up your field of vision and allows you to perceive the etheric energies, which surround all people and places.
Simply focus on a point, preferably above eye level while simultaneously using your peripheral vision to see as far back, as your blind spots, on both sides of the head. You can do this while talking to other people to notice the subtleties in their energy and their behavior. You will begin to hear and feel things in new ways. People create their realities through the language that they use and when you shut off your own internal dialogue, you can really begin to understand the deeper meaning of what someone is trying to tell you. Also, you will as though through a spontaneous intuition recognize the subtleties of energies and feelings that people are trying to project or conceal.
As your perceptions begin to open up, you may start to sense things about people that you never did before. It is as though you have been awoken from a long sleep and now you have to process the world around you in a whole new way. When you silence the mind, you break down the ego personality and by doing so, your perceptions will open up, allowing your higher self to govern the course of your life. That way, you’ll always have a sense about what is really going on around you and inside others.
