simply understanding why you feel certain emotions durring specific experiences. Like when you go to talk to a pretty girl, you feel nervous, why do you feel nervous? you don't know this person and she hasn't judged you yet because you haven't said anything yet and really have no reason to be nervous but you still feel nervous. Or your about to take a long trip, everythings all planned out and everythings running on time but you just stopped for gas and you suddenly start feeling anxious. You have no reason to feel that way but you do. Later as you drive down the road someone wrecked and ties up traffic for a few hours. Then you realize that you paused after you got gas because you were wondering why you had that anxious feeling, you paused just long enough to not get caught up in wreck. sure you were stuck behind it but you weren't involved in it.
those are two very different examples but they get my point across i hope. You can't pick and choose which emotions you pay attention to, you have to listen to what your body is telling you, least thats how i look at it. It works for me, helps me understand why i think the way i do sometimes and occationally keeps me out of trouble lol.
I have felt it more than seen it. As far as I can remember I have always felt people's energy. The good, the bad and the neutral. My son is a very pessimistic person and more often than not I can feel him draining my aural energy just by being in his presence, even if he's having a "good" day.
As far as seeing energy around things and people, i have definitely seen it. If I concentrate enough, the aura that surrounds trees, plants etc... Explodes with bright yellow/orange colors.
Have have tried to see with with people, but I have not been fortunate enough to experience it. Yet
My experience with feeling or seeing energy is slightly limited and I can't seem to control it. Sometimes when I go to bed I am able to see with my eyes closed. Sometimes I see only living things, like my dog or my hands and other times I see the whole room. I don't see things as I would with my eyes open, I see a sort of white energy that is pulsating around the edges of the objects.
I really freaks me out every time it happens! I have even had my brother put up fingers for me to guess while I've had a pillow over my head and I got 9/10...Although, Like I said before I can't control when it happens
Currently I'm trying to learn how to AP, I think whats happening is that I'm seeing through my astral eyes...But hopefully I get some more answers from my new experiences!
BTW if anyone has AP experience I would really appreciate any assistance you can provide, both in the physical and non-physical realm. PM me anytime!
Can you feel the energy flowing more in the palms if you think happy thought, clap the middle of you palms a couple of times in both hands and put you hands on your shoulders for a while?edit on 27-9-2013 by LittleByLittle because: (no reason given)
In all of this, I had a voice that would explain things to me at times, give me exercises to do, to develop different abilities. One of them was sensing energy with my hands. In the same way one can use a pendelum, you can set out to find or choose something in particular, then "let go" and let your hand run over objects, or a map, and feel a tingle when over the thing you need or look for. I found this to be useful in everyday life.
Some of the others, I found less useful, like lucid dreaming.
A way of remaining in a meditative state while walking, moving and manipulating the world normally was rather useful as well, I think.
I went through a period of being able to see auras, but then, it kind of faded away as I just didn't make the effort to develop it further. I lost interest in it. I feel that if I turned my focus on it again, I could develop it better again.
I recently saw my first "shadow person", but hadn't any particular desire to be able to see that, I don't know why it happened. I am surprised that it didn't scare me at all. Perhaps with all I have experienced in the past, it just seemed almost normal in comparison.

I have been trying to have an obe for the past year and a half. I have gotten as far as the "vibration" stage then hearing grinding metal and partial separation and then I wake up not being able to move for a minute or so.
Could you so kindly share the steps you use to achieve astral projection?
I am getting to the point where I'm so discouraged that I have only been meditating once a week at most.
About 12 months ago, I fell asleep in my lounge room and awoke about 1am as I walked past my study I noticed something odd in the room. I went in and was amazed to see an energy field of some sort that
seem to coalesce rather than swirl.
The room was dark yet the coalescing energy appeared darker and there was a light marbelling going through it.
At the time I must admit that I was shocked and a little scared, I stayed with it a few minutes and it didn't fade. At that point I tried to affect it with hand gestures and my gestures, made it move.
It didn't seem harmful so I left it and went to bed, the thing was after turning out the light in the room I noticed it was also there in my bedroom.
I was tired after a hard day at work so I turned over and went to sleep.
The next night it wasn't anywhere to be seen so I thought maybe I was imagining it.
I have been meditating for many, many years now. Not every day and sometimes I can go weeks without doing so, at which point I find my mood seems to drop and I enter a bit of a funk. I start meditating again and this helps. I am also a coeliac and am prone to bouts of depression due to my eating habits, if I gluten I can get sick and depressed, so meditation for me is good.
Anyway I decide to meditate and go through my process while lying on my bed, its about 10 at night and dark. I actually fall asleep while meditating and awake and see the clock is 11.21pm, and to my surprise the same energy field is in my bedroom but it seems stronger than normal.
Now whenever I meditate at night the field is always there, if I meditate at someone elses house it is not there. Which I find interesting. Another interesting fact is the local council has put in a smart meter not 10 feet from where I sleep.
Could my meditations and this smart meter allow me to see this energy field? Is this energy field a by product of the smart meter.
Interesting post op.
I have to say that people really spin drama and fear on this particular topic and here is what I mean.
When talking or explaining energy related to the higher-self, or our true self we use words like "Freaky, scary, weird, strange, and more" to spin drama when there really is no drama there, but actually our true state of being.
The current 5 senses we have are actually short term being that we are in human form.
When you feel or sense something via your intuition, third-eye, or ESP beyond what you are accustomed to, know that it is your higher-self coming through, so just relax and allow things to happen instead of reacting negatively.
