Describe the smells. Sweet, rot? Strong or weak?

Do you practice visualization?

When do you hear these sounds?

I have an answer for you, but you won't like it. Just by the name you chose, Angelsoftheapocalypse, shows that you've opened the door to the world of make-believe. This makes you always ready to accept the illogical over the logical.

Diagnosis: This life bores the ...t out of you.

I have this same sickness, except that I have forced myself to only accept what can be substantiated.

Though I am tired all of the time, what is important about this statement is that I love my dreams. So for me, being tired isn't such a bad thing. The bad thing would be not being tired and facing more of this trivial thing we call a wakeful reality. I read books to escape it, delve into physics to ponder what is interesting to me, rather than delving into the repetitious and monotonous events of this world.

People divorce and marry over and over again. Why? Because they don't know what else to do. Hey, we elected a president, and we get to do it again in just four years, and again, and again...

For 200,000 years humanity has been caught in a loop of excruciating repetition. Love, war, disease, love, war, disease, love, war, disease... We think there HAS to be more, but there isn't.

So, we make up ghosts and gods and angels and demons to occupy our desperate minds.

Great answer!! I'm going with this one! Through the years, after meeting many people, I can tell when I'm in the room with a nasty person, & if I have to shake said persons hand, yuck!!! I get a nasty, peppery, to the point of choking taste in my mouth....hard to explain. There has been a time or two i have flat out refused to shake a persons hand! because the closer they got, my mouth would feel like i was on fire..I could always tell good from bad just by that alone. From what I've read around the boards, there are many many people here who experience similar type of reactions upon meeting people for the 1st time...I just called my mom receantly, because I couldn't get my grams out of my head, she was driving me nuts, started dreaming of her too, so mom went to check up on her, & sure enough, she was ill. Sad part is, I don't feel she will last much longer, & my mother believes me, because she said I was plagued with these types of things since early childhood.....best advise, pay attention to your feelings, especially when your around people, keep a journal, right down your dreams/feeling immediately, maybe you will start to see a pattern...lets see what you come up with!!
get back to us upon your findings....I would be interested to see how you progress. Good luck OP.

If you are a 'sensitive' in the paranormal sense then you need to learn how to protect and ground yourself (there are many books on the subject) ... what you DO NOT want to do is make it into another kind of illness ... this is a gift that you just need to learn how to use and control so that it doesn't control you ... just do a bit of research there are thousands of books / groups that can give you some help and guidance.

I don't mean to be rude but the information that you have given in a couple of your posts makes it sound like you are one of those people who feels like a 'victim' ... someone who can be a bit needy ... the fact that you have the ability to be a 'sensitive' should be seen as a chance to turn that around and become a strong confident person ... as I said you just need to learn how to contorl and use it in a balanced way and the first step is 'grounding' yourself ... doing your own research is part of the journey.

Enjoy the ride. Woody

I dont know how to really describe the smell, its sort of sweet, but sort of sour... not as bad a rot, but yeah.. You know certain things have certain smells, and certain people have certain smells. One of those smells I know well is my dad.

If by "visualization" you mean trying to visualize things before or long after they happen, I actually never thought of it like that, but I do it all the time. any time before I do something Im not familiar with, or people I am not familiar with. I also love to go to older buildings and try to "visualize" what it would have been like to be there, to live there.. Thats how I get a good sense of what it was like to be there. Honestly, I thought everyone did that? Hmm.

And I don't know what sounds you are talking about, cause I didn't see where I had said that..

Woody-

Yeah, some of my posts could make me sound like the victim, probably because for the longest time, that's how I felt. I didn't know I could possibly be a "sensitive", and that was what was going on with me instead of just bad situations and coincidences. I also believe if I learn what it is to be a sensitive, and how to properly channel it, I won't feel like that as much anymore.

What you said about your gram, and your mom bugging her to go see her because she was ill, makes me think... for the last couple of weeks I have had the nagging feeling that I need to go see my grandpa. I have the feeling that I need to see him, and I need to talk to my family about my dad.

About the meeting people thing, Yeah, I get that a lot. Not the peppery nasty taste in my mouth, but I am really good at telling what people are like even before I "meet" them. I just thought it as "vibes"...

I also think that what was said about me recognizing and channeling my sensitivity is right (that I wasn't). So hopefully in the future, I can learn to channel it, and to recognize what is going on more properly than to be scared or cautious about it.

So pleased you didn't take offence at my words (that's an encouraging sign) ... it's just that sometimes certain things need to be said to get us on track.

It can all be a little overwhelming when we first discover such revelations but don't let it stress you ... as I said 'enjoy the ride' ... see it as an exciting advernture ... a voyage of discovery.

As for your physical health it does sound (as someone already mentioned) like an hormonal imbalance ... I would persist with the doctor if the symptoms continue because some of these things can take a while to show-up in test results so don't let it slide ... and if it's any consolation I have had a chronic illness for some years now that means I am in constant pain to some degree or another ... but my spirit is strong and we have to learn how to incorporate these things into our life and not let them override the pleasure to be found in life.

From a spiritual perspective your health could be effected because you are developing but are not properly grounded so your energy levels can feel depleted (very common but easily solved) ... research 'spiritual grounding' / being a 'sensitive' / spiritual development etc ... and you will find a whole new chapter opening up in your life.

Sensitivity is something that can be increased or decreased based on what you want to experiance. If you are having issues then you might seek higher awareness of yourself if you haven't already achieved it.



Hot spots in different parts of my body (like a hot iron, close to my skin but not touching it) Muscular twitching in all parts of my body


That might be chakra imbalance. There is a place you can get where the mind to lets go and the body start to move around without thought and start to stretch itself and fix it's hurts. It is kinda funny having the body perform yoga movements on it's own even when you have never been a yoga practitioner.

Yes, I actually do, and have lived an active lifestyle. I was in the military for 8 years, so yeah. I have even tried changing my diet, exercise routine, ect. Even tried toning it down, to no avail..


You were in the military for 8 years? Did these "symptoms" appear before, during, or after your service? Did you volunteer for any clinical trials of any sort during your stint?

These are a major indicator. Definition in part:

sen·si·tive (sns-tv)
adj.
1. Capable of perceiving with a sense or senses.
2. Responsive to external conditions or stimulation.
3. Susceptible to the attitudes, feelings, or circumstances of others

#'s 1 and 3 are of what you refer to. If these apply, you are.

I am.

I am not sure about the term sensitive. Where I'm from you would be referred to as a "poor me", or simply a bitch, or a complainer. There's always something wrong and it never gets better without something else wrong arising. The best thing you can do is find a way to focus on helping others instead of always focusing on yourself. A healthy hobby can also be helpful. Good luck.

I agree with woodwytch on the issue of you needing to loose the "victim" state of mind as it will only hinder you. I would avoid your typical meditation techniques of emptying your mind. It would likely benefit you more to learn to clear the clutter and direct your thoughts which could help with the "victim" issue.

As for the smells it could be;
Phantosmia
en.wikipedia.org...


Phantosmia is a form of olfactory hallucination. While most olfactory hallucinations are caused by a misinterpretation of a physical stimulus, such as in the case of parosmia, phantosmia is the perception of a smell in the absence of any physical odors. The odor can range from pleasant to a disgusting smell. Although the causes of phantosmia are debated, it is often comorbid with psychological disorders such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, Parkinsons disease, epilepsy, neuroblastoma, and frequent migraines.


I have heard of many experiencing a sweet smell when they reminisce on fond memories, perhaps you are experiencing that. Maybe it is spiritual in which case I would refer back to my original suggestion of learning to be more conscious of your thoughts and practice directing your own visualizations/ meditations.

Emptying your mind is just asking to lead to those culty new agers.

I'll tell you what, one of the best pieces of information I was ever given about being a sensitive and what to do with it was "Know yourself" first. Because without truly getting into your own soul and spirit, you will never be able to tell what is yours and what it everyone elses.

This also goes with the saying "Healer, heal thyself"

If you really want to get into the psychic aspect of being a sensitive, you first have to take that long journey into the soul and do some serious soul searching.

Or you can disregard it altogether and just allow it to happen when it should instead of enhancing it. But knowing yourself is the first and most important step in the right direction.

See, the thing about the "poor me" or "victim" thing is from where I am from, that means that the person either wants attention or just gives up. On both accounts I have not. I hide my illness to a point to where even the people who are closest to me usually don't have a clue unless I let them in on what I am experiencing. I am also far from giving up. I have tried to have what is happening to me diagnosed so I can either further treat the symptoms I am having or to solve the problem.

I'm sorry if I have come off like a victim earlier, I was just stating my symptoms because that was what I was told is how I am affected by being a sensitive, that I could possibly be having these symptoms due to being in contact with the dead constantly, even if I don't know it myself.

Edit: Also, I think I may of come off as "victim" earlier, cause I honestly didn't know what to think or do, and it shook me up a bit.

Some of the symptoms started while I was still in the military. I have records dating as far back as at least 2007, and I have felt other symptoms (like general shakiness) for as long as I can remember. Some of the symptoms that I remember having while I was in the military and not before were the twitching, burning sensations, and some others.

Now for medical experimentation, I do not believe that I was under any type of experiments, but who knows what those military doc's really have in those vials when they do pre and post deployment shots and meds..

Thanks for your kind words. And trust me, I try not to get offended by much of anything. Either I agree, disagree, or agree on some points but not others. When I do disagree, I just move on, because what is the point of arguing about it?

Also, thanks for the research advice. I will definitely look this up.

Sorry everyone for the late replies. I was at work today from 9:45-4pm central time, so I was unable to get online to answer your questions, or reply to your thoughts. Thanks for your patience.
