What should I do with my intuitive experiences? Where Should I Go From Here?
While I was never in a situation where my life was truly in danger, my brain holds onto the memories of when I was bullied or laughed at, particularly of how I looked or my clothes. Even today, my brain still goes back to those memories, even if they were over 20 years ago. I remind myself that I am not those thoughts.
@pacosurfer and deetoo:
So Deetoo said so much that resonated with me. But pacosurfer, OMG, I was so bullied and teased from middle of 1st grade until end of 8th grade (and I'm 59) it still affected me my whole life. They would make fun of my hair, clothes, etc., really anything they could think of. I believe it made me someone who was not as much of a risk taker and lacked confidence for a long time. I didn't strive to be the executive at the company I worked for, but rather the Exec admin assistant. I really think what happens to us as children affects us in ways that sticks to us like glue. We have to strive to changed the "movie" in our own brain.
I have a question that pokes at me from time to time. I have a good friend who is an online psychic. She is very accurate and lovely as a person. She is also a Trump supporter and has told me she saw that his heart was actually into being POTUS for the right reasons when he was elected and afterwards. I also notice there are many psychics out there who claim he will be elected a 2nd term and also support him.
My question is how can someone like my friend and others, who may actually be pretty good psychics on a regular basis have this feeling about Trump. The whole thing confuses me, especially about my friend Suzanne. I can not only clearly see what kind of "devil" he is, but it's there for all of us to see every day right out in the open. So how can a psychic feel this way? I would love to hear what others feel about this topic and I hope posting it here was ok. Thank you.
(side note, my dear friend who passed away in 2004 was named Suzanne, I have a dear friend now who lives near me named Suzanne, and the gal who is the psychic/trump supporter is also named Suzanne - I am a "Suzanne magnet" lol)
i, also, had an online psychic friend who was an ardent trump supporter. She knew I voted for sanders/Clinton, and she told me that they would be the next Hitler.
the way she treated me was disrespectful; the only thing i can think of is that Trump was suppose to be President so she took that meant he would do good. But I too think he was meant to be President to make us wake up to the horrors that can even happen in America; we have to face up to our history of racism; of course, I don’t know how anyone with any iota or psychic-ness or spiritually can still support him; but I will eliminate any of them from my life; my mental health is paramount
I did feel he was supposed to be elected to expose and give light to the changes that need to happen in our government, but I never thought of it the way you explained it - that maybe since she sensed he was supposed to be elected she mistook that as he was going to do good. How so many still see the energy of him being re-elected mystifies me though, especially when I see him being gone - soon! Thank you!
(I also feel that certain psychics are just Republican in nature so they tend too be slanted in that directions too perhaps).
A friend and I were discussing the difficult things going on with aging individuals and how their thought processes deteriorate. It's why so many seniors are the targets of scams. The conversation then led to people who have had emotional issues, or abuse in their backgrounds.
It's like Stockholm syndrome for many. I know of a gal who has looked to me for help with trying to figure out her mother and the mother's poor behaviors. The gal thinks her mother wasn't fit to be a parent. Her mother, while being a democrat (I believe-she's definitely more liberal than the daughter), is emotionally disordered, just like Rumpus. So while the daughter thinks the mother isn't fit to head up a family, she thinks Mango is fit to head the country. She simply can't see how the man behaves just like her mother.
People who have been abused have been lied to all their lives. They'll believe a lie before they recognize the truth every time. They'll cling to the abuser, or they'll be attracted to the same type over and over until they learn their lesson. That they deserve better, that yes they are worthy. That doesn't make them bad people, it makes them human. To err is human. Psychic or not, people who have their own issues and biases will see things that support their perspectives. It's a blind spot they are not aware of.
And if he was chosen to be in office, to help flush out those who are of like minds, others would have to be mesmerized as well to get enough votes. Those who are like him are not the majority. They are a small percentage of our citizens, and they needed to be exposed so they can learn. We're all here to learn-but we aren't all here to learn the same lessons. Some have already figured out they made a bad choice-they were ill informed. Others have a harder time admitting mistakes, and will take longer to come around. Some may never do so. They'll try again next lifetime.
Hi, Tricia you pose a very interesting question, some of which I think at times beyond our ability to fully grasp. Pretend for a moment that you are not from this world and are looking at our events impartially. Is Trump good or bad? Think about what he did with North Korea. We are not a war, would we be with another president? Sure, they still have nuclear weapons, but he has successfully diffused that situation, how many lives were saved because of it? The wall with Mexico, we have been building it for decades, no one talked about it until Trump came along. Has it caused a wave of compassion, for all to examine how we all treat everyone? His rhetoric would have never been tolerated 30 years ago, again forcing us to look at what we don't like. Much of what we are seeing in the news has been going on for eternity, but now the light is shining on it for all to see what is improper. It maybe a hard way to learn a lesson, but maybe it is necessary. While it is hard to watch sometimes, change is happening, and I suspect that it will be permanent and positive change in the long run.
@proffat I want to thank you and very gently correct the facts in your post. As you have agreed with others here, that Trump has, by making it much worse, served the purpose of awakening us to injustice that was already happening in the world. I love the idea of looking at Trump from outside this world. It's a good exercise.
However, your examples of North Korea and the border wall are incorrect and don't reflect the history of those situations.
Regarding North Korea, Donald Trump did not save us from anything. He made the situation there much much worse by triggering a near nuclear war with them, then tried to back off. In his characteristic arrogance and ignorance, he agitated North Korea which we all know has been developing nuclear weapons for decades. He then succeeded in doing just one thing -- terrifying billions of people including children all over the world into thinking we were close to war with them. He may have brought us closer to nuclear war than we've been since the Cuban Missile Crisis. He didn't diffuse anything except that he backed down from Kim Jung Un.
It's funny because when he was elected my husband said that what concerned him the most, what kept him up for several nights after the election, was that Trump would trigger a nuclear holocaust. We even called our grown kids who live away from us and established a rural location we would meet en route to Canada in the event that news of nuclear war became dire.
To diffuse the situation he created with North Korea, Trump made an embarrassing diplomatic visit (notice he went to them, which elevated their standing in the world) where nothing changed at all. Nothing. He made a phony Apprentice con show move that he'd reached an agreement and friendship with their leader who laughed behind his back, then went on doing what they were doing before which was building a nuclear weapon.
In short, Trump claimed victory for not setting off a nuclear holocaust that he nearly triggered.
As for the wall, it's true that there has been pressure from Republicans to build a wall since about 2005. Obama tried to appease the Republicans by setting up a virtual wall and since the early 2000's there has been fencing at high traffic crossings. But the reality was that a wall was a bad idea for many reasons. In Texas, local and state politicians opposed the wall because it would stop critical trade between the two countries. Environmentalists also pointed out how a wall would hurt our ecosystems. It wasn't until Trump came along with his massive arrogance and ignorance that a U .S. president made such a big deal out of it. The only reason most Americans didn't know about the wall controversy until Trump is that the reasons why a wall is such a bad idea had kept it under there radar. But Trump is the king of hubristic ignorance so he raised the issue to the point where we all now know about previously discarded wall idea. Today, not even the GOP believes in a total border wall.
Wikipedia provides much of the border wall history. They also I assume provide much of the North Korea history too.
As for looking at this world from outside, I LOVE that idea.
@proffat, I thank you for bringing up the idea of looking at our world from the outside. It is something we have talked about in this forum from its inception but you have made it a focus right now.
Trump's ideas come from the shadow of humanity and he brings out that shadow. We will get into the light when a critical mass of people feel the consequences of that dark behavior and change their own lives.
The shadow comes from the immature drives of greed, selfishness, and not understanding that we are all radically interconnected. All humans have these selfish feelings -- they are how we survived in the jungles -- but as people mature we will change to more altruism and wisdom.
What will it take for humanity as a whole to see the radical interconnectivity of all beings? What will it take for humanity to realize that trees, animals and ALL people are one? What will it take for people to realize that what we do to others we actually do to ourselves? A movement is underway that is based on this knowledge of radical interconnectivity. It will gain traction over time. That movement is in the hearts of those who post here and it is in many other people we haven't met but we know them when we meet them.
I'm watching our world from the outside and I see that we have to really see the tragic consequences to our own selves of harming others for change to happen in the whole civilization.
The Border Wall tragedies are helping us see how we have treated our fellow humans from other countries. Their plights come in large part from actions we took as a country when our corporations stole their natural resources and enslaved their people. Our politicians passed policies that interfered with their attempts to become free democracies. We overthrew 13 countries, starting with Hawaii, since 1898. We propped up bad governments who helped our corporations raid them and their natural resources. We did this for example in Iran, in central America, and Vietnam. So now in Central America, the have to flee the countries we have helped make dangerous and poor.
The North Korea situation: Who set off the first nuclear weapon? Who is the only country that has used a nuclear weapon on another country? We hold it up as a threat. We have elected leaders who want to use it to control other countries. So why are we surprised when some countries who don't want to kowtow to us build their own weapons?
I agree that the situation is complex, and in the end we are not the only ones to blame. We are one of the leading forces in the game of blame.
The situation we face today stems from immature humanity. We need to grow and learn from our mistakes.
Advanced beings from outside this world will see that the human race is young and still in the toddler phase of self interest, with little understanding of how to treat each other.
Climate change is the real game changer. As I write this, there is a law suit in NY against Exxon for lying repeatedly about the impacts of climate change. After Exxon gets through this lawsuit, they will have to deal with similar suits in other states. They will end up bankrupt as will all the fossil fuel companies.
They knew about climate change since the 1970's but they covered it up and funded a denial system to protect their profits. It was considered business as usual. And now we face annihilation from climate change. Once humans as a race begin to understand the radical interconnectivity of all beings as so many of the light workers in this community already understand -- then we will thrive on this planet.
When we predict the future here, I have not seen yet how the 2020 election will bear out. I want to see a new paradigm. I want to see the paradigm that will save humanity. So I look at us from outside this world and I ask if we have changed enough yet. No we have not. But we could shift fast so I am keeping up the possibility in my mind that the change is coming very soon. Most huge scale change is happening beneath the surface and then, BOOM, we see radical revolution virtually over night.
