...our culture (NZ Maori) refers to it as Mauri.
Sometimes that word, Mauri, is translated into English to mean such things as 'Life Force'. In a way that is true, however the deeper context and connotations of it are found within the word itself:
Ma = to be connected to, joined to
Uri = descendents, all things (seen AND unseen)
Mauri = to be connected to all things - seen and unseen.
Mauri is our link.
Mauri is our connection.
Mauri is our awareness of the inter-related nature of all things...the joining to of all things.
Mauri is the *transporter* of 'information' to ourselves (and by ourselves I mean also on a deeper level than mere flesh and bone).
It is also the *carrier* of 'information from ourselves.
It is a two-way street of awareness.
For some people - be it by birth, be it by learning and gaining awareness, be it by whatever - they are more attuned to their own Mauri...and via that attuned to the Mauri of others. Seen and unseen. Which also means both living AND passed.
Mauri is also not just limited to connections to other *beings* as such...it also encompasses connection to (as the word indicates) ALL THINGS.
Be it the tree outside your house, or that river that flows through your town, or the mountain hundreds of miles away.
...thats our cultural perspectiive anyway...
...is anyone else like this? Lots. You certainly aren't alone. In fact its particularly normal in some cultures.
I still would like to hear from anyone else who has information on this subject or has experienced it and can explain to me how to strengthen the ability.
