While at the post office today, I was in line waiting for my turn at the counter. It’s a small little lobby with a tall greeting card rack to the left. I typically will glance over at it when waiting in line but I also glance at everything else because my brain is generally on search mode. But today, I couldn’t take my eyes off the card rack, to a point where I noticed myself noticing it.
Just before I moved up to the counter, a woman who had been filling out paperwork walked over to the card rack with boxes of cards in her hands. Ahh…she was working on the inventory of cards that were left on the rack, and replacing ones that had sold. I realized that her attention on the cards bled into me, so my attention was on the cards too before I knew what she was there for, or that she was actively in the middle of that task. She had “stamped” her energy on the card rack, and I felt it. I noticed it.
Most people don’t notice a subtlety like this but it happens all the time. When someone concentrates heavily enough on a task, especially if there are any emotions attached to it like enjoyment, excitement, frustration, or sorrow, it can transfer to other people even in small subtle ways. This is what I like to describe as shared attention. Our attention goes to what their attention is already on. This subtle coherence or assimilation can also be easily interrupted though too since it doesn’t belong to us in the first place. If we already have our attention elsewhere, we likely won’t be receptive to the streams of attention other people are projecting. But if we are open and receptive, then what is around us can become part of us.
Another example is if I am consciously thinking about a specific item in my inventory on my stores. Sometimes I think of how pretty it is, or that it hasn’t sold yet. And then within a day or two of my thinking of it, it sells. Other people’s attention went to what I had my attention on. And their thoughts became shared. They too thought it was pretty, or liked it, and purchased it since it hadn’t sold yet.
In abstract ways, thoughts, emotions, or responses to what we are about to encounter can also influence us.
A couple of weeks ago I was up late watching a show on a streaming service with my son. We were only in the very beginning of the first episode and hadn’t made it to the opening scene yet when I suddenly paused the show to go fetch a can of peaches I had a sudden craving for. I have not eaten canned peaches in probably several years at least. It wasn’t something I typically reached for but used to love as a kid. My son commented how it was so odd what I did. I sat down, started the show again, and ate my peaches. Within a half hour or so, there was a van in the show with a Georgia license plate on it, and an image of a peach for Georgia peaches adorned the license plate. My son looked up at me and said, “well that’s why you wanted peaches. Your subconsciousness must have remembered them on the license plate from watching it last time.” I had already seen the show but it was at least a year prior, and I didn’t remember that the van had a Georgia plate, since the show didn’t take place in Georgia. It was such a small detail they only mentioned a few times throughout the whole series. Maybe I had catalogued it in my subconsciousness, but it was still out of character how my mind reintroduced the memory through a craving for peaches. Or perhaps I hadn’t catalogued it, but was registering it this time through a subtle introduction into my subconsciousness before physically seeing it. Either way, there is likely a new message I need to receive since it was brought to my attention, so I’ll have to finish the series again to find out.
When we pay close attention to our thoughts, especially when it leads to behaviors or actions that are out of character for us, it is likely coming from something else other than ourselves. The key is to observe, not absorb. This is most important for people who are naturally telepathically receptive to their environment, especially in haunted or spiritually active locations. The most receptive people can easily become influenced by Spirits or Entities that have a dominant energy. So self protection, self observation, and careful monitoring of our internal dialogue and thoughts are important. This helps us discern what is ours and what isn’t.
This can be used to our advantage though too! Creatively, we can intentionally put ourselves in the company of others and brainstorm in groups. This can give us a way to synchronize our thought patterns, and come up with a range of ideas for projects, problem solving, and more efficient ways of doing things. Teamwork is the best source for thought generation. We can be architects that tap into the same collective thought stream in order to retrieve the most information as possible. This is why group prayer works when all participants project the same thoughts and intentions to help someone heal. This is also why witches align together in a coven, and do magical workings in circles. Each person contributes a source of energy that amplifies a unified intention with unified attention to it. There is strength in numbers.
In an example of creative Telepathic Coherence, we often see multiple artists, writers, and musicians suddenly produce something new that is near identical, even if they don’t know each other or were in communication with each other. The collective consciousness can be tapped into simultaneously by multiple people who all become inspired to create the same thing. We all have access to the same information and it is common that many of us are inspired to bring it into manifestation in the same way at the same time.
This is also one of the principles in the foundation that Remote Viewing is built upon. Tapping into what others are putting their attention to, even in subconscious subtle ways, allows the Remote Viewer to see what the other person is projecting. No matter how long that person has been projecting something, so long as there is an emotional or mental attachment to it, it can be viewed.
