I'm one of those previous skeptics, mostly left brain people who eventually had enough spontaneous experience to open to psi and related ideas. As a
result of my involvement for about 15 years online in such topics, I've run into a lot of people who report things like you're talking about. Where
they never really tried or much, and then one day they really got it together, often with others, really made an effort and suddenly -- there it was.
And of course then they had no idea what the hell to do about it LOL.
I tend to think that someday we'll find it's all a matter of physics. Like our brain is wired to exclude all but a really tiny % of the universe of
frequency sine waves and beat patterns, and then something happens by accident or intention and suddenly what we can perceive is just a tiny bit over
the border of our previous limits. Whether how we interpret and model that perceptually is the same for everyone is unknown. But certainly lots of
people have encountered what I call "identities." I call them that because one does not always know if we're talking about a thoughtform residual
impression, an entity, a hallucination, a projection of self, or . . . what. It might vary. Maybe even the way we model these things is kind of
simplistic and dense but we're working with a limited and unpredictable dataset so it's not an easy thing to study.
I have noticed though that there is a certain... well put it this way. You know how the first time most of us saw those 3-D "magic eye" pictures we
just saw a bunch of noise. And most people it took actual effort of trying before finally our brain "found the pattern in the seemingly random visual
noise" and all the sudden, there was that picture in freakin 3D and the first time everyone is like, oh my god, oh my god, that's so amazing, it's
like I can deeply INTO the picture, wow, wow! But once we did that... and a few others... it was easier. Now I can pick up one of those pics or see
something in a book or magazine and within a couple of seconds my brain "finds the pattern" and shows me the previously 'hidden' picture.
Well I think the kaleidascope of energy that is the soup we live in (Jungian Stew, I call it), functions kind of like that. Sometimes people's
brains, one way or another, just suddenly "find the pattern". Now how much they let through and how well they remember is another story. But all the
sudden, they are actually perceiving all kinds of stuff that is just not supposed to be real and not supposed to happen. Between myself and many
people I've known over the years, and I'm talking highly skeptical white collar folks sometimes that seriously don't know what to make of it, and
are frightened by it, and only confess it to me because I manage to believe in the offbeat but sound reasonably uncrazy when conversing about it. Much
of this genre of experience you really cannot bother telling people because it sounds so impossible or so crazy or even humorously stupid -- like if
you were going to make stuff up, it would make so much more sense, lol.
But I think once the brain finds the pattern, at least on occasion when defenses might be a little down or interest of late a bit higher than usual,
folks are just suddenly open to things 'from that pattern'. I think it really is a sort of pattern or energy recognition and that's why people tend
to get a certain genre of experience (eg nature spirits vs. aliens vs. entities vs. dead people vs. sheer imagination) but not so much blend.
I'd just accept it. Nothing you can do at this point and you know what, the thing to learn about identities is that in most cases, you "pay"
attention. The more thought/focus/energy you put toward other identities the more you are basically supporting that. Best to think of positive futures
and the angelic parts of self or God that can create new good things, rather than focusing on what those things ten years ago might have been. My
$0.02. Hope it all works out for you.
