Red Heron has a very good description of energy sensing and very close to similar experiences of walking in woods and feeling that I was drawing from to run the sense energy drills. Yes people feel in different ways but the energy fields of the body do have an electro-magnetic aspect.
AS far as watching everyone doing the drills it was amazing. I apologize for not stating that people weren’t being tested in anyway. It was meant as a totally non-judgmental learning experience only. It was amazing to see how many people got so close but were doubting what they were feeling that their conscious minds over-road what their senses were telling them. Far too many times I would see people unconsciously leaning away from a hand coming up behind them or stopping just short of touching someone. Even when I had each group look for an object it was amazing how each group went in the exact opposite direction of their object and found another group’s stone. BUT I see this as ALL A POSITIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCE. because even if people doubted their senses, a touch or a look showed them what they were sensing had validity.
And JAX for you to feel the people moving is a great achievement because I know how hard you have been working on sensing things and opening up. Perhaps it is that you blend in with every thing – (which I find odd because when I blend in with everything I feel everything better, though I do not know how to describe what I do other than like I said then – like the way Daredevil in the movie sees- shining things in the greyness.) But what I feel more is that you have such rigid self control – which is amazing – that is what is getting in the way of you feeling. You have definitely learned much in the years that I have known you.
And it is always easier to feel a moving target. The trick I was hoping to get folks to understand without mentioning it was that a person moving through the stationary bodies is no different than the bodies moving around you. Your movement creates the ripples that echo off the bodies so to speak, while when they move their motion creates the ripples. Sensing like I mentioned may be a soft touch similar to a piece of cotton barely wafted across the skin but felt in the middle of the head or solar plexus or where-ever a particular person interprets their senses of others.
As for the picture. I got it in email but didn’t understand the context. Thanks Icarus for explaining the story behind that. Once I knew that, I looked at it closer, in the upper left corner you can see the edge of someone’s robe. What I am seeing in the foreground are 2 focuses of energy which I’m going to interpret as me & Kim. All I remember doing as we walked forward was to draw the Force in and extend it towards Kim as a kind of blessing for their wedding. All I can say is holy sh*t. Never seen my aura caught on camera before. Must have dropped my guard significantly, cuz didn’t get anything like that from me doing Reiki earlier.
I’m glad everyone got a chance to enjoy the lessons/games we had at the gather and I look forward to many more get togethers. Next time though hopefully it won’t be scheduled in the middle of a term for me.
