So many of you who recognize me, know a lot of what I study, which can be evidence from my thread creation history. One of the things that I do study,
is Extra-Sensory Perception.. Now what is that really?
Extrasensory perception (ESP) involves reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses but sensed with the mind. The term
was adopted by Duke University psychologist J. B. Rhine to denote psychic abilities such as telepathy, clairaudience, and clairvoyance, and their
trans-temporal operation as precognition or retrocognition. ESP is also sometimes casually referred to as a sixth sense, gut instinct or hunch, which
are historical English idioms. It is also sometimes referred to as intuition. The term implies acquisition of information by means external to the
basic limiting assumptions of science, such as that organisms can only receive information from the past to the present.
To give a basic wiki-link on it, is above, but I will expand. When I was first researching who David Wilcox is, yes I know but I'm still on the fence
with him, I read about his experience with Harold Sherman's "How To Make ESP Work For You." This was always one of my biggest fascinations growing
up, and the basis for most of my dreams..
Now skip forward a bit, to myself now, constantly devouring more and more esoteric or occult texts, Ayurvedic medicine, and so forth. One of the books
that made it's way into my collection through torrents is none other than the same, Harold Sherman's, "How To Make ESP Work For You."
Since I am a pretty avid reader, I put my whole library onto my iPhone so that I could carry it to work, and read on my breaks. One day I started
reading a bit out of Harold's book, and in it he describes how the body exists as a radio antenna to receive and transmit signals. One of the times,
that the body is best capable of receiving signals from others, is during sleep, when your mind is less guarded by consciousness. There were a couple
of 'experiments' where he transmitted thoughts to people who were dreaming to wake up at such and such time, they would dream it, wake up at that
time, and call him to see what had happened...
Well, that is where my story begins. The other night I came in from babysitting for a friend while they worked, and my sister was asleep in our
recliner. She doesn't live with our family and I, but occasionally comes to visit when she wants to say hi. She is a very deep sleeper that is hard
to get her to move, or even wake up. My father's live-in girlfriend had made a Stouffer's casserole and asked me to wake my sister to eat. I would
start shaking her and saying her name until she waked up. As always she would look at me with a dirty, half-eyed stare, say she is up, and then
proceed to keep sleeping. I grabbed a plate anyways and proceeded to eat. While I was eating, I thought back to what I had read in Harold Sherman's
book about the body being a better receiver during sleep. This struck me with an odd idea of a prank. I returned to the kitchen to lay my plate down,
so as not to obstruct my hands.
I then made my way back into the living room to stand in front of the recliner where my sister was sleeping. I let my arms hang down by my sides, and
thought intently upon tapping and shaking her feet with all I could think. I didn't physically move, it was as if I was moving my thought or illusory
body. The end goal was to see if I could astrally shake her awake so to speak. I.E. think of shaking her awake and she actually looks up at me. Well
during the whole time I was eating and previously trying to wake her, other than when she awoke, she never moved. However, when I started thinking of
tapping her with what would be my astral hand, after only a few seconds 5-10, the foot that I was focused on, twitched and shook as if she was
unconsciously trying to shake a fly or some other pest that had been bothering her foot. Much like you would shrug off an insect.
Now I know a lot of people will say it is coincidence, etc, etc, but in all reality, I know and have lived with, and shared a bed with my sister when
we were younger. She doesn't move when she is sleeping. Nada. Sure if she unconsciously wakes up and shifts positions to fall back asleep. But she
doesn't just move uncontrollably. This scenario kinda spooked me a bit at first because the mathematical probability of her "just-doing that" at a
time when I was actively trying to force something to that effect, is very low. Why is it her foot only twitched immediately after I started
attempting to see if my thought-forms could subconsciously interact with her while she was sleeping?
Whether I was successful or not, I was definitely not expecting that, and has given me a new interest to begin research into this field. What are your
Note : Before replying to the thread, just know that I don't care for all the catcalls for "proof". I know what I saw, and this is my story. Take
it for what you will, but I won't attempt to prove that it happened to satisfy ego's....
And I'm talking to you shady bunch!!
