Recently the front page of a daily newspaper had an article about a study on how happiness is infectious and that emotions and even health issues such as acne and headaches are spread among friends and family and even amongst groups with no connection to why.
I suggest to the researchers that it's telepathic communication. Telepathy is mental images, symbols and words shared between two or more people in present time.
This includes across distance as the “happiness study" revealed. When my son was away at college I awoke one night with a dreaded feeling that he was in trouble. My husband assured me it was just part of the “empty nest" feelings. Next day my sister called asking if my son had come home because she thought she saw him walking past her home but when checking outside, he had disappeared. That day my son called to say he had an accident with minor injuries and, although he was okay, it frightened him. Of course, not all telepathic messages are negative as the study of happiness proves.
Telepathic communication has two aspects - sending and receiving information. Receiving is a basic survival skill. In order to be secure and safe, one must be aware of the subtle and not so subtle messages surrounding him/her. Therefore as children we develop a heightened sense of seeing, hearing, and knowing quickly. A receiver is more prepared for news and situations that will occur. Receivers tend to be nurturing people who like to please others by sharing their loving, helpful nature. They are often found in many healing, helping and creative arts professions. Nature has a great importance to them because the receiver is quite sensitive to her/his surroundings. They can assist others when physical communication is difficult by sensing what a person needs. Sometimes too busy listening and feeling they must learn to communicate clearly to what degree of helping they are willing to do because they can often let people become too dependent upon them. For instance by acting before asked. They can have tendencies toward feeling victimized and can experience great tiredness and exhaustion from being too “on call" mentally. To be truly balanced and healthy, they must learn to differentiate between what are their thoughts and feeling and what are those of others.
Those stronger at sending telepathic messages are action type people who move forward with confidence. They can accomplish goals easily by sending messages of what and who is needed to accomplish their goals. Senders can be good at manipulating to get what they want and live in the future. On the other hand they can be great visionaries and confident leaders. When trained properly they can be powerful healers and can help advance humanity to higher levels of consciousness. Since senders attract others to help them achieve their goals, they must be aware not to control or manipulate the helpers. A sender may be so focused on their goals they can become tunnel visioned and not pay attention to the, often, subtle, responses coming their way; not receiving information thus not sensitive to the needs of others. They have a tendency toward perfectionism and are overly stimulated mentally. Because of this they can be highly agitated, overly aggressive and often volatile. Senders do have a wonderful ability to vision and create and when balanced with receiving of they can bring around positive and progressive changes for humanity.
When balanced between the two telepathic abilities we can carefully choose which messages to send and which to receive.
