The Levels Of Clairsentience Part 7

What we will be looking at here is a compare and contrast of, as defined in the definition sections of these discussions, Empaths and Psychic Vampires. Its important to keep the chart, The Levels Of Clairsentience, in perspective as we look at these two very different types of abilities. At the onset, we are faced with two very different abilities with stigmas attached to each, that seem to inexplicably separate the two. But that, like so many things, is only a matter of perspective. This is why we need to journey beneath the surface to understand these two gifts in more depth. Because of the depths we must go here, lets start out with definitions and move forward from there.


The Definitions

An Empath is a person who has an acute or highly developed sense of empathy. Empathy is the capability to share your feelings and understand another's emotion and feelings, which is often characterized as the ability to "put oneself into another's shoes". It is said that the Empath has the ability to take in the negative emotional energy of others and transmute that energy, turning it into light energy which is then given back to the person the Empath is working with.

Vampirism

The term Psi Vamp has a number of names it goes by. Below you will find the majority of them and a brief description of each. It is important to note how each is similar, or simply phrased in another way.

A Psychic Vampire/Psy Vampire/Psi Vampire is a modern-day vampire who feeds on the emotional energy of other people consciously, unconsciously or through a willing donor.

Emotional Vampire is one who feeds upon the emotions of others to bolster their self-esteem and to gain attention. It is usually someone whose life revolves around drama and through guilt trips, negative comments, or by mere presence alone, tend to leave the other person feeling emotionally drained.

Energy Vampire is a person who seems to suck the energy of other people. This means, he has this unusual ability to draw energy from the people around him.

An Empathic Vampire is a vampire which feeds off the energies from emotions. Like all of the other types listed above, this to is another name for one who feeds on emotional energy. But the thing that sets this particular type apart from the others is the empathic ability the vampire possesses along with the ability to absorb energy. Empathic vampires are highly at risk health wise if they are not experienced enough with changing energies and such. There are many negative energies involved in empathic feeding, and if the vampire is incapable of handling them or changing them to more positive energies, they may take on that emotion as their own and even feel it 10 times more.



Let me start out by saying that this discussion might bring many a bit of discomfort. No one likes to imagine that their gifts and abilities are similar to or run parallel with a predatory nature or what what one might deem lecherous. But as it has been stated in other parts of this discussion, we are all human, and are all subject to the same thought process and emotions, despite what we might imagine sets apart from the collective whole. A great quote said, 'Remember that you are a unique individual, just like everyone else'.

So all of this is offered up as food for thought about the stigmas we attach to titles. And the reality that exists just beneath the surface of those titles and stigmas. So I would beseech each of you, who read this, to approach it with an open mind. Otherwise the point of this particular portion of this discussion, The Levels Of Clairsentience, is moot.

The Empath

An Empath is defined, as stated in the definition portion of this discussion, as a person who has an acute or highly developed sense of empathy. Empathy is the capability to share your feelings and understand another's emotion and feelings, which is often characterized as the ability to "put oneself into another's shoes".

For most, it is thought that Empathy is a gift/ability of altruism and giving because it offers support to others in their times of need and focuses specifically on their issues and problems. But beneath the surface of this gift resides the question, is it really all that altruistic? Certainly empathy can be categorized as giving of oneself, but is it really altruistic?

Beneath the surface of this gift, we must look at what motivates a person to utilize this gift/ability in the way that they do. This is because, according to the main chart, Empathy encompasses a number of energy manipulation types to bring itself into fruition which include emotional projection, emotional absorption, and emotional introjection. The implied use of these, when speaking of Empathy, is to help people. And the focus of the person employing the gift of empathy is solely on other people.

So we have empathy, which employs the three types of energy manipulation stated above, plus a focus that is externalized, rather than internalized, and we end up with an Empath. But whats missing from this equation? The answer can be found in the focus portion of the equation, because it has polarized toward the external, with no thought to the internal. What this means is that the Empath will, more often than not, seek to heal others even to their own detriment.

We touched base on this in another portion of this discussion which said: Those with low self esteem and little to no self worth will find a false sense of worth and purpose in these gifts. But this is setting oneself up for failure sooner or later, because this type of person bases all of their worth on the kind words and appreciation of the people they help, instead of on a more stable foundation. So they are always looking for more people to help.

It is an addictive action, and in a way, its like a drug addict looking for their next fix. Now that may seem a harsh comparison because the person in question is helping others. But look at the underlying causes of that offer of help. Its not altruism. Its a need to feel good about themselves, to fill that sense of emptiness they hide behind their good deeds.

It doesn't seem like a big issue until someone fails to show the proper appreciation for the help and guidance they've been given. Then it can explode in the person's face who is offering the help, because their worth is tied directly into that gratitude. And it can cause that person to crash, hard, into a deep depression. It can also leave them wondering where their gifts and purpose have disappeared to. But the truth is, it was never there in the first place, because it was simply an addictive behavior from the beginning. Or if you flip your perception, the gifts have always been there and are still there, but have been utilized in such a way that it was unhealthy for the user. And when the illusion crumbles, so to does the use of their gift to sustain that illusion. And it is a long journey to reach a point where they can use their gifts again as they used to, only in a much healthier way.

So in understanding these things, we understand that the gift of Empathy can be an unhealthy act of emotional dissociation. What this means is that the person in question pushes away from all of their own issues, because they are unable to cope with them in a healthy way, and seeks validation outside themselves, which more often than not, will end in great emotional suffering for the Empath.

Now we come to understanding where the three types of energy manipulation fit into this. Emotional projection is used, by an Empath, to set another person at ease enough to share information they would not normally open up about. Empaths are so exceptional at this, that it can bring random strangers out of the woodwork who open up within 5 minutes of meeting the Empath.

This process is furthered by the use of emotional introjection. What this means is that the Empath, who is an excellent observer, takes on the emotional and/or physical traits of other people. It is a form of mimicry used alongside the emotional projection (empath projects calm and serenity on the other person) to set the other person at ease.

The emotional absorption takes place when the person begins to open up and share their issues. Through the words the other person is infusing with emotional energy, because of the emotional situations/experiences they are talking about, the Empath is able to read them (as much as all of the other processes that occur during the Empathic process), mimic them, and help them find a resolution to the issue or the emotion, such as anger or hurt, that is attached to the situation in question.

Which brings us to the last part of the energy manipulation part of this discussion. Because the Empath is focused on the external, other people, they also excell in the ability of energy transmutation. What this means is that they have the ability to filter emotions that are handed to them, and make them lighter emotions which ease the person's suffering to a degree. It is often offered back to the other person in the same way it is given to them, through words. This is called Linguistic Empathy. (for more information about Linguistic Empathy use the search tool to the right and you will find several discussion on the topic)

So up till this point we've seen the gift of Empathy in several layers throughout these discussions: the intellectual process, the emotional process, and the energy process that occurs. But the question still remains though, is this process altruistic in its nature? The answer is simple, based on all of this information. No, when it is used as compensation for what seems to be lacking in a person's life or what they are afraid of or refuse to deal with issue wise, it is not altruistic. Instead it becomes a form of manipulation used to feed one's own ego, which in turn, never completely fills that 'hole' inside of the person.

This reality about Empathy is what makes the judgment of other types of gifts, like Psychic Vampirism, as predatory and/or lecherous stigmatic in their nature. It breeds a prejudice against other abilities or uses for these energy manipulation types, when the truth is that they are all much the same in nature at their core.

Before moving on let me state this is not offered up as a judgment against anyone. Empathy can be a wonderful and very useful gift if it is utilized in a healthy way. But to do that one must address their issues and not deny their existence or hide from them by seeking validation outside themselves. You must have a solid foundation from which to use Empathy to make it a healthy gift, which means you must balance the needs of others along with your own personal needs. Neither can be denied if one is attempting to be healthy.

The Psychic Vampire

A Psychic Vampire/Psy Vampire/Psi Vampire is a modern-day vampire who feeds on the emotional energy of other people consciously, unconsciously or through a willing donor. What this implies is that, whether conscious or unconscious, this ability is predatory and lecherous in nature because it absorbs emotional energy from other people to feed and/or sustain another person who is deemed a Psychic Vampire.

First lets look at the unconscious type. Everyone knows a person like this, who seems so focused on themselves emotionally and is deemed 'emotionally needy' that they seem to leave another person exhausted and/or 'feeling drained' at the closure of any interaction. A vast majority of us have thought it about someone at one time or another, I am sure. But is this really Pyschic Vampirism? No. Its, as stated above, an emotionally needy person who is so focused internally that they can't think about anything other than their own issues. And their interactions with others, because of that internal focus, are focused in the same light. And no, this does not automatically make the person a Narcissist by nature, as well.

I can't think of any person who has not, at least once in their lives, exhibited these tendencies because they were so overwhelmed with their own issues. Because we are all human, we all have a tendency to focus on ourselves at times, and can this appear vampiric or narcisisstic to others? Definitely. But its not necessarily true.

So we move on to the other category, the conscious type. This is one who acknowledges, whether privately or publically, that they are Vampiric by nature and that they need and/or desire energy (not speaking about sanguine vampirism in this discussion), prana, life energy, emotional energy, or whatever other name one wishes to apply to it, to sustain themselves.

This, like Empathy, is a form of Energy manipulation, which can include emotional projection, emotional absorption, and/or emotional introjection. But it, unlike an unhealthy use of Empathy, is openly manipulative, which more often than not, breeds the stigma that is often attached to it.

The stigma implies that the person in question is a natural born manipulator, possibly narcissistic or worse, and uncaring of other people in general, save for what they can offer to the Vampire. But these people are human beings who, despite their predilection for emotional energy, live normal lives, have families, work regular jobs, have normal circles of friends, and interact within a community like everyone else. To exemplify this a bit more I will offer up what is considered as the rules of the Vampire Community.

Do these rules imply that all follow them? No. Do they imply that all who claim the title Vampire are not predatory? No. But like all communities, secret or otherwise, and subcultures, what it does imply is that there are a wide variety of people within it. And to assume one thing about all of them, is simply wrong, misguided, and sometimes very prejudicial.

The Black Veil: The 13 Rules Of The Vampire Community

DISCRETION
This lifestyle is private and sacred. Respect it as such. Use discretion in who you reveal yourself to, and make certain that your motives are to truly communicate about our culture and to engender understanding. By no means should you talk to others about yourself and our community when your motives are for selfish reasons such as self-promotion, sensationalism, and attention-getting.

Do not hide from your nature, but never show it off to the those who won't understand.

DIVERSITY
Our paths are many, even though the journey we are on is essentially the same. No single one of us has all the answers to who and what we are. Respect everyone's personal views and practices. We cannot let petty differences of ideology prevent us from maintaining a unified community; there are enough who would attack us from the outside.

Our diversity is our strength. Let our differences in viewpoint enrich us but never divide us upon ourselves.

SAFETY
Use sense when indulging your nature. Do not flaunt what you are in public places. Feed in private and make certain your donors will be discrete about what happens between you. Donors who create rumors and gossip about us are more harm than they're worth. If you engage in blood-letting, put safety and caution above all other things. Blood-born diseases are a very real thing, and we cannot risk endangering ourselves or others through irresponsibility. Screen donors carefully, making certain they are in good health both mentally and physically.

Never overindulge or get careless. The safety of the entire community rests upon each member's caution.

CONTROL
We cannot and should not deny the darkness within. Yet we should not allow it to control us. If our beast or shadow or darkside is given too much sway, it clouds our judgment, making us a danger even to those we love. Never indulge in pointless violence. Never bring willful harm to those who sustain you. Never feed only for the sake of feeding, and never give over to mindless bloodlust. We are not monsters: we are capable of rational thought and self-control.

Celebrate the darkness and let it empower you, but never let it enslave your will.

LIFESTYLE
Live your life as an example to others in the community. We are privileged to be what we are, but power should be accompanied by responsibility and dignity. Explore and make use of your vampire nature, but keep it in balance with material demands. Remember: we may be vampires, but we are still a part of this world. We must live lives like everyone else here, holding jobs, keeping homes, and getting along with our neighbors. Being what we are is not an excuse to not participate in this reality.

Rather, it is an obligation to make it a better place for us to be.

FAMILY
We are, all of us, a family, and like all families, various members will not always get along. However, respect the greater community when having your disputes. Do not let your individual problems bring emotional strife to the family as a whole. Settle your differences quietly among one another, only seeking out an elder's aid in mediation when no other solution seems possible. Never bring your private disputes into public places and never draw other family members into the issue by forcing them to take sides. Like any normal family, we should always make an effort to present a stable and unified face to the rest of the world even when things are not perfect between us.

HAVENS
Our havens are safeplaces where everyone in the community can come to socialize. There are also often public places where we are likely to encounter people who don't understand our ways. We should respect the patrons of these places as we should also respect the owners of the establishments and always be discrete in our behavior. We should never bring private disputes into a haven. We should never initiate violence in a haven. And we should never do or bring anything illegal into a haven, as this reflects badly upon the community as a whole. The haven is the hub of the whole community, and we should respect it as such, supporting it without business and working to improve its name in the scene so that we can always call it home.

TERRITORY
The community is extensive and diverse. Every city has a different way of doing things, and a different hierarchy of rule. When entering a new city, you should familiarize yourself with the local community. Seek out the local havens. Learn what Households have sway here. Get in touch with key members of the community, learn who is who, and show proper respect where it is due. You should not expect to impose your old way of doing things on this new scene. Rather you should adapt to their rules and be glad of their

acceptance. Always be on your best behavior when coming to a new city either to visit or to stay. We are all cautious and territorial by nature, and only by making the most positive impression possible will you be accepted and respected in a new community.

RESPONSIBILITY
This lifestyle is not for everyone. Take care in who you choose to bring into it. Those who are mentally or emotionally unstable have no place among us. They are dangerous and unreliable and may betray us in the future. Make certain that those you choose to bring in are mature enough for this burden. Teach them control and discretion, and make certain that they respect our ways. You will be responsible for their actions, and their behavior in the community will be reflected back to you.

ELDERS
There are certain members of our community who have established themselves as just and responsible leaders. These are the people who helped establish local communities, who organize havens, and who work to coordinate the networking of the scene. While their word does not have to be law, they should nevertheless be respected. They have greater experience than many others, and usually greater wisdom. Seek these elders out to settle your disputes, to give you guidance and instruction, and to help you establish yourself in the local scene.

Appreciate the elders for all they have given you: if it was not for their dedication, the community would not exist as it does now.

DONORS
Without those who offer themselves body and soul to us, we would be nothing. We cannot be other than what we are, but it is the donors who sustain our nature. For this service, they should be respected. Never mistreat your donors, physically or emotionally. They are not to be manipulated or leeched off of for more than what they freely offer. Never take them for granted. Appreciate them for the companionship and acceptance which they offer us, which so many others would refuse.

This above all: appreciate the gift of their life. That communion is sacred. Never fail to treat it as such.

LEADERSHIP
When you choose to take a position of authority in the community, remember that you do not lead for yourself alone. Leadership is a responsibility, not a privilege. A good leader must set an example for everyone through his actions and behavior. His motives should be selfless and pure, and he should put the interests of the whole community before his own.

The best leaders are those who serve to better the community and whose person and behavior gives no one -- even those outside of the community -- a reason to criticize them.

IDEALS
Being a vampire is not just about feeding upon life. That is what we do, but not necessarily what we are. It is our place to represent darkness in a world blinded by light. We are about being different and accepting that difference as something that empowers us and makes us unique. We are about accepting the dark within ourselves and embracing that darkness to make us whole beings. We are about celebrating the thresholds: body and spirit, pleasure and pain, death and life. Our lives should be lived as a message to the world about the beauty of accepting the whole self, of living without guilt and without shame, and celebrating the unique and beautiful essence of every single soul.

SPECIAL NOTE!
In addition to the above 13 tenets, the central focus of the Black Veil is respect for the laws of one's local government and community. The Black Veil stands for the respect to not perform any criminal or illegal activities and that minors will not participate in any Sanguinarium community affairs until they are of legal adult age.


The Conclusion

So what does all of this mean? No one is everything they might seem on the surface and everyone is much more than than one single title can cover. We are multifaceted beings with many faces, many of which we don't show to the outside world. Titles limit who and what we are, particularly if they have a stigma attached to them, whether it is one of altruism or one of a predator. Is an Empath just an Empath? No. Is a Vampire just a Vampire? No. Its simply food for thought. So think about it.

Psychometry: Fact & Fiction

In this discussion we are going to be looking at Psychometry. There are a few wrongly made assumptions made about this particular ability that need to be straightened out by offering some clear cut information on it, starting with a few definitions. So lets get straight to it, shall we? I offer up a number of definitions for the word Psychometry to offer a wider base of understanding for what this ability means.

The Definitions

An Empath is a person who has an acute or highly developed sense of empathy. Empathy is the capability to share your feelings and understand another's emotion and feelings and is often characterized as the ability to "put oneself into another's shoes".

Clairsentience Clear Sense or Clear Feeling. This is where the person feels or senses things. This can be emotional feelings or feeling physical pain that has occurred. You could always refer to this as our intuition. Although there may be no knowledge of where this feeling is coming from or who it is from, it is just simply there, it is known. This is the ability to feel what others can feel.

Psychometry, or "token-object reading", is a form of extra-sensory perception in which a psychic is said to be able to obtain information about an individual through paranormal means by making physical contact with an object that belongs to them.

Psychometry is another form of psychic divination using the sense of touch to get mental impression linked to it. Psychometric impressions may come in the form of emotions, sounds, scents, tastes or images. The visions can appear is single flat images, much like a photo, or as animations. As we exist in an electromagnetic energy reality, metal objects often work best.

Psychometry is the ability or faculty to perceive the characters, surroundings, and events connected with a person by holding an object belonging to that person in ones hands.

Psychometry is a form of scrying - a psychic way of "seeing" something that is not ordinarily seeable. Some people can scry using a crystal ball, black glass or even the surface of water. With psychometry, this extraordinary vision is available through touch.

Myths About Psychometry

Myth #1
~ Psychometry is the most advanced form of both Empathy and Clairsentience
. The truth here is that it is simply another form of Clairsentience, because it utilizes the sense of touch with inanimate objects to discover information intuitively about a person, place, or event. To assume this is a higher form of Clairsentience denigrates the gifts of Empathy and Clairsentience.

Myth #2
~ Psychometry is Clairsentience, So Clairsentience is Psychometry.
This is like asking 'if all ravens are crows, does that mean all crows are ravens?' Clairsentience is an umbrella term used to encompass many gifts. So while its true that Psychometry is a form of Clairsentience, it would be a mistake to assume that the only form of Clarisentience is Psychometry.

Myth #3
~ Psychometry is a form of Clairscentist.
Clairsentist, also called Clear Scent, is the ability to smell fragrances or substances that are not near them. This can include perfumes, smoke, alcohol, food, coffee, an so on. This differs from the ability of Clairsentience, which is also called Clear Sense or Clear Touch, in which Psychometry falls under.

Myth #4

~ If a Psychometrist touches my things, he/she will know all of my secrets.
The impressions we leave on objects in our possession are usually imprinted when we are in a state of heightened emotions, such as traumatic events or joyous ones. But this ability does not afford the Psychometrist a complete insight into a person's mind or life span. Usually it only allows them flashes or glimpses at those events where there is, as we said, a state of heightened emotions.

Myth #5

~ If Psychometry is a form of divination, then it is evil. The ability of Psychometry, like that of Empathy and Clairsentience, has been used, for many years, to help people. Psychics use this gift to help find missing people, solve crimes, and to offer people hope. And while it can not be denied that there are charlitans, it would be an error in judgment to assume all are frauds, that they are all out to do others harm, and that the gift itself is evil.

A Brief Psychometry Tutorial

1. Choose a location that is quiet and as free of noises and distractions as possible.

2.
Sit in a relaxed position with your eyes closed. Rest your hands in your lap with your palms facing up.

3. With your eyes remaining closed, ask someone to place an object in your hands. (The person should not say anything; in fact, it's best if there are several people in the room and you don't know who the person is giving you the object.) Preferably, the object should be something the person has had in his/her possession for a long time. (Many researchers believe that objects made of metal are best, theorizing that they have a better "memory.")

4.
Be still... as images and feelings come into your mind, speak them aloud. Don't try to process the impressions you get. Say whatever you see, hear, feel or otherwise sense as you hold the object.
5.
Don't judge your impressions. These impressions may be strange and meaningless to you, but they might be of significance to the owner of the object. Also, some impressions will be vague and others might be quite detailed. Don't edit - speak them all.

"The more you try, the better you will become," says Psychometry - Psychic Gifts Explained. "You should start to see better results as your mind becomes used to 'seeing' the information. But you can progress; at first you will be pleased to pick up on things correctly, but the next stage is to follow the pictures or feelings. There may a lot more information that you can obtain."
Don't worry too much about your rate of accuracy either, especially at first. Keep in mind that even the most renowned Psychometrists have an accuracy rate of 80 to 90 percent; that is, they are inaccurate 10 to 20 percent of the time.

How To Improve Your Psychometry Skills

Step 1
Clear your head and begin meditating. Breath slowly until you are in an extremely deep state of relaxation. Forget about all of your worldly worries and concerns. You need to be in a psychic state of consciousness for psychometry to work.

Step 2
To improve your psychometry skills, find objects with history that you know nothing about. Touch them until you get strong feelings - smell, sight, touch, taste, or sound. Concentrate for as long as you need to, taking breaks when necessary.

Step 3
Don't force your psychic visions and feelings. Avoid putting too much pressure on yourself - just relax and concentrate. Don't get frustrated when you feel nothing. This is bound to happen sometimes; not every object has an interesting story behind it.

A Psychometry Practice Group Exercise

The following exercise is for a group of people. Group practice is best because you can all put an object into a bowl without knowing which object belongs to whom. In a new group setting such as this, try not to say anything that might make someone uncomfortable. Be tactful and diplomatic, but as descriptive of your thoughts, feelings, or symbols as possible for feedback from the owner of the object.

1. As discreetly as possible, everyone puts an object of theirs in a bowl.

2. Each person then reaches in and takes out an object that it is not their own.

3. Hold the objects in your receptive hands until you receive an impression.

Sometimes I ask specific questions such as, "Will this person change their job or career?" "Will he or she find love?" "If so when?" "Who?" What lesson does this person have to face at this time? ... etc.

4. Each person then takes a turn describing his or her impressions. Relate everything that you see in your mind, think of, hear in your head and any feelings that you have while holding the object.

5. Everyone should give some kind of feedback. Feedback is what helps us to develop your skills.

The Levels Of Clairsentience Part 6

In the last portion of this discussion we looked at the psychological issues which can arise with many of the gifts listed in the main chart, The Levels Of Feeler Clairsentience. In this part of the discussion we will be looking at the the other aspects of this chart, which are the actual levels of feeler clairsentience. But since we've already gone over the definitions in the previous discussions, we will skip that part of the blog and move right onto an overall view of these gifts.

The Levels Of Clairsentience Part 1
The Levels Of Clairsentience Part 2
The Levels Of Clairsentience Part 3
The Levels Of Clairsentience Part 4
The Levels Of Clairsentience Part 5

The Source

When we talk about the levels of Clairsentience, in particular Feeler Clairsentience, what we first must focus on is the source of all of these abilities, whether we are speaking of projection or absorption. The source of all of these abilities is something called Emotional Energy. Other terms for this type of energy are Psychic Energy, Mental Energy or Prana. There are varying ideas on what this is, but a very basic definition for it would be a vital life-sustaining force of energy.

Each of the different abilities listed on the main chart, beyond the psychological issues that can arise, are based in the idea that a person can some how manipulate this energy to achieve some type of goal, whether this is projecting this energy on another person in order to make them feel something, absorbing this energy to transmute it or to replenish one's own dwindling energy or simply reading and interpreting the energies sent out by another person.

And because there are varying ways to manipulate this energy, we come to the reason why it has been broken down on the main chart as it has. It doesn't go directly into different types of abilities, but instead focuses, after the types of Clairsentience, on the different ways that this energy can be manipulated with things like projection, absorption and introjection being the main focus. This is done to help the reader understand the multilayered dimensions of the single term Clairsentience, from the possible psychological ramifications to the the different forms of manipulation that can be applied to this energy to the abilites themselves that are spawned from this one central idea.

Making Sense Of The Levels

In this discussion we look at a multilayered chart which breaks down the different types of Clairsentience. When we look at the abilities alone , we are left wondering how they relate to one another on the surface. For most of them, the connection simply can't be made on the surface. The idea that psi vampirism and empathy have anything to do with one another seems absurd on the surface. The idea that hands on healing could have anything to do with either of those two things, much less clairsentience, seems equally absurd. But thats only on the surface.

If you break the main chart down, you end up with 3 main layers: the abilities themselves, energy manipulation types, and psychological ramifications. When you look at the chart you will note that there are long lines going from the term 'feeler clairsentience' to a number of different things. Each of these is a energy manipulation type. The things that stem off of each of these are the possible psychological effects and the abilities that naturally flow from a particular type of energy manipulation.

In understanding these things you understand how to read the chart, which when put together as a whole instead of taken piece by piece, might seem like an overwhelming amount of information that is confusing and difficult to interpret.

The Disclaimer

When we say disclaimer, its not quite what one might think at the onset of reading this section. It is an explanation of a few simple things that may not be apparent while reading the rest of these discussions.

This discussion is a generalization of what most people will experience as they develop their abilities. But it would be a mistake to say that everyone will go through everything this one way or another. People are very individualistic, with shifting energy levels from one moment to the next. Thus their abilities, which are based in the emotional, will also shift at times, as well. Someone who uses energy manipulation to replenish their own dwindling energy might, in the next moment, give some of that energy to someone else to help uplift someone's emotional state.

The second point I'd like to make is that, despite what you might think, based on what you read, we are all human beings. Labels, titles, and names of abilities (empath, psi vamp, healer, etc.) are simply ways to understand what is happening to us and what we can do. But none the less, we are all still human. One type is no better or worse than the other, because they all have the potential to heal or harm, which is completely dependent on a person's intent. This is also exemplified in the idea that all of these abilities and energy manipulation types, stem from the same place.

This is by no means the end of these discussions, because there is quite a bit to go over when one delves into this topic to the depths which we are going. But this is enough to digest for now. ^_^

The Backstory

So after all of those charts and definitions that gave you a headache, you arrive here. And I'll wager some of you are wondering 'WTF?!!' LOL

These discussions were never meant to show just the levels of Clairsentience, but also some of the repercussions that can occur because of these gifts. Often the people that find themselves saddled with these gifts also have underlying life issues that have been left unchecked for a long time. This includes, but is not limited to, low self esteem, little to no self worth, and/or egocentric personalities. When you add these kinds of gifts in with such issues, you can end up with even bigger problems than you had before.

The Martyr

Those with low self esteem and little to no self worth will find a false sense of worth and purpose in these gifts. But this is setting oneself up for failure sooner or later, because this type of person bases all of their worth on the kind words and appreciation of the people they help, instead of on a more stable foundation. So they are always looking for more people to help.

It is an addictive action, and in a way, its like a drug addict looking for their next fix. Now that may seem a harsh comparison because the person in question is helping others. But look at the underlying causes of that offer of help. Its not altruism. Its a need to feel good about themselves, to fill that sense of emptiness they hide behind their good deeds.

It doesn't seem like a big issue until someone fails to show the proper appreciation for the help and guidance they've been given. Then it can explode in the person's face who is offering the help, because their worth is tied directly into that gratitude. And it can cause that person to crash, hard, into a deep depression. It can also leave them wondering where their gifts and purpose have disappeared to. But the truth is, it was never there in the first place, because it was simply an addictive behavior from the beginning. Or if you flip your perception, the gifts have always been there and are still there, but have been utilized in such a way that it was unhealthy for the user. And when the illusion crumbles, so to does the use of their gift to sustain that illusion. And it is a long journey to reach a point where they can use their gifts again as they used to, only in a much healthier way.

The Egocentric

The egocentric personality, is based on the same principle as the martyr. This is because they are trying to cover a deep sense of emptiness with a facade, as well. But this type takes a different path, in that they begin to see the calculated potential of gifts like projection and heightened emotional intelligence.

When one has a deep understanding of the human mind and its psychology, and has the added ability of projection, it can give the egocentric personality a false sense of empowerment, pride and entitlement. And because this type is based in the context of 'me' instead of 'other people', it can develop into a severe delusion of grandeur.

At its most extreme, it can and does include things like Messiah complexes and God complexes. In this delusion, the egocentric personality begins to believe that because of their heightened emotional intelligence and ability to manipulate others, they are the way to things such as enlightenment and salvation. Or that there is no one in the world who is better than them or can do something specific better than they can.

But again, because this type of personality is based on a false facade, if it is not 'fed' in the proper way, it can become mean. This type will shift the blame for any issues or problems onto others, and through manipulation, cause others to fall just as far as they have or further, in order to build themselves back up. It will do whatever it has to to keep the delusion in tact, without the guilt of who they step on and hurt to do it.

The Conclusion

In exploring all of these types of gifts and repercussions, I'm pretty sure most of you saw yourself somewhere in there. Perhaps you were affronted at the idea that you might be a narcissist or a psi vamp. Perhaps the term martyr came to close to the truth for your comfort.

But none of these things were offered up to condemn or to judge. We all have our own issues to deal with. We all have our own experiences that helped to mold us into what we are. But even beyond those things, its important to understand the things that can and do surround your gifts, as much as the gifts themselves.

What turned you into an Empath? Was it abuse? Was it some kind of trauma? What turned you into a Psi Vamp? Are you that emotionally needy? Is this the way you were taught to survive? Were you so neglected that you ended up forming a narcissistic personality? What are the underlying reasons for doing what it is you do?

Think about it. Its important, for your own development.

The Levels Of Clairsentience Part 4

In this, the fourth part of this discussion, we will take a quick look at the last four types of Feeler Clairsentience and then move on to the real point of all of these parts. I know it has taken a while to get to the point, but with this much information, it was important for everyone to have a decent understanding of the levels of Clairsentience, as well as, the psychological repercussions that can arise with these gifts. So lets get started with a quick look at the last four types, Heightened Emotional Intelligence, Emotional Introjection, Physical Absorption and Physical Projection.





What you will note in this chart, is that we have been over many of these ideas already. So I am simply going to reiterate what each is and then move on.

Emotional Introjection is an unconscious internalization of aspects of the world (especially aspects of persons) within the self in such a way that the internalized representation takes over the psychological functions of the external objects. It can also be defined as a psychological defense mechanism involving appropriation of an external happening and its assimilation by the personality, making it a part of the self. In basic terms, it means to take on the emotional traits of others. It can also be done physically, but we will leave that for another discussion.

Mimicry is the act or art of copying or imitating closely. It is the ability of some creatures to imitate others, either by sound or appearance, or to merge with their environment for protective purposes. For Humans, it is often used as a protective mechanism to set another person at ease or to help the user blend into whatever group they are with at the moment.

It can occur in one of two ways. The first is
emotional mimicry, which means that the person who is mimicking emulates the emotional states of those around them. If a group is outraged at someone for a supposed wrong doing, the one mimicking will follow along and express the same outrage, even if later they find themselves wondering why they did it. The second is physical mimicry which includes the emulation of speech patterns, facial movements, hand gestures, and body language. Often this will set another person at ease when they see someone making familiar gestures, even if they don't recognize it at the conscious level.





Heightened Emotional Intelligence is a term that describes the heightened ability, capacity, skill or a self-perceived ability, to identify, assess, and manage the emotions of one's self, of others, and of groups.

This type can take you in two directions, that of selflessness or that of selfishness, with two of its extreme results being exemplified in the ideas of the martyr and the messiah complex.

On the first path one discovers
empathy, pity, compassion and sympathy. Often times, if this is combined with low self esteem and very little self worth, it can develop into a case of martyrdom in which the one helping others finds their sole purpose and value in helping others, even when it is to their own detriment. This is an unhealthy mix and can turn dangerous for both the martyr and the person they are trying to help, if this is left unchecked.

While on the other, it is possible to develop an egocentric personality which forgets the real purpose of offering others help. When one understands how the human mind and its emotions work, it can often times convey to the person who is able to do it a sense of false power, which can work against that person in the long run. If left unchecked it can cause the person to begin to believe they know what is best for others, and in some extreme cases, to believe that they are the way to enlightenment, salvation, or whatever other term the person wishes to apply to it. This is where the
messiah complex comes into play. Most often when it reaches this level, the person in question already has what would be deemed as one of the dark triad personality types, or a combination of two or more.



Physical Absorption occurs when a person's physical traits, attributes, and/or ailments are absorbed by another. Depending on the person and their motivational intent, Physical Absorption can act as a cloning mechanism or as an ability which steals away the physical trait, attribute and/or ailment, leaving the other person without that trait, attribute, and/or ailment.

Physical Projection occurs when a one's personal attributes, traits, and/or ailments are ascribed onto another person or people.

Mimicry is the act or art of copying or imitating closely. It is the ability of some creatures to imitate others, either by sound or appearance, or to merge with their environment for protective purposes.

Both
Physical Projection and Absorption can be used to produce types healing, which includes the laying on of hands, energy channel healing, and the absorption of disease. One works as a pushing of energy through the body, which would be a form of physical projection. While the other works in the opposite way, with the absorption of an ailment.

Physical projection can also produce, when combined with things like heightened emotional intelligence, a form of manipulator that has no issues about physically intimidating others, causing them physical duress, or ascribing them with the negative traits they themselves exemplify.

The Empath, The Indigo, The Crystal, & The Rainbow (And Quizzes)

In this discussion, we will be looking at some definitions and traits of the ideas of the Empath, the Indigo, the Crystal, and the Rainbow. So, as always, lets start with some basic definitions and the move on to a more detailed look at each in their traits and/or attributes. I've also added in some Quizzes to test your aura and to tell if you are one of these types. ^_^

Definitions

An Empath is a person who has an acute or highly developed sense of empathy. Empathy is the capability to share your feelings and understand another's emotion and feelings and is often characterized as the ability to "put oneself into another's shoes". Another definition for an Empath is a person who can feel the emotions of other animate (living) entities, such as human, plant or animal. Some include inanimate objects as well under this word.

An Indigo Child is a powerful, intelligent, independent child, named for his/her supposedly indigo aura, who will help improve the spiritual quality of the world. Their frequency has recently increased drastically to possibly over 95%, with the first being born in the 1970s or '80s.

Crystal People instinctively channel healing energy. Their crystal nature enables them to pick up energy and aura colors from the people around them. They are acutely sensitive and are even more likely to become healers and lightworkers than indigos, but need space to themselves and a lot of care.

Rainbow Children can use their strong will and unlimited energy to build the new world A Rainbow Child is the next wave of children after the Crystal Children and Adult Indigo Children here to assist us with the next stage of our accession. Rainbow Children, unlike the Child Indigo and Crystal Children have never been on earth before.

The Questions

After that overload of information, did you see any similarities between Empaths and the other three types listed; Indigo, Crystal and Rainbow? How about contrasts? Did you see yourself in there somewhere? How about someone you know? Its an interesting idea. Here is a Hopi Prophecy that seems to fit well into this story, as well.

The Hopi Prophecies
(For more versions of these prophecies go here: More Prophecies)

The Rainbow Warrior

Some time in the future, the Indians said, the animals would begin to disappear. People would no longer see the wolf, or the bear, or the eagles. And, the story goes, the giant trees would also disappear. And people would fight with each other and not love each other. And, the story goes, the beautiful rainbow in the sky would fade away, and people would not see the rainbow anymore.

Well, children would come. And these children would love the animals, and they would bring back the animals. They would love trees, and they would bring back the giant trees. And these children would love other people and they would help people to live in peace with, each other. And these children would love the rainbow, and they would bring back the beautiful rainbow in the sky. For this reason the Indians called these children the rainbow warriors.

Now let me ask you a question. Do you love animals or hate animals? (We love animals.) Do you love trees or hate trees? (We love trees.) Do you love people or hate people? (We love people.) Do you love the rainbow or hate the rainbow? (We love the rainbow.)

Well, if you love animals and trees, people and rainbows, then maybe you are the rainbow warriors and that is a statue of you.


Warriors of the Rainbow

There was an old lady, from the "Cree" tribe, named "Eyes of Fire", who prophesied that one day, because of the white mans' or Yo-ne-gis' greed, there would come a time, when the fish would die in the streams, the birds would fall from the air, the waters would be blackened, and the trees would no longer be, mankind as we would know it would all but cease to exist.

There would come a time when the "keepers of the legend, stories, culture rituals, and myths, and all the Ancient Tribal Customs" would be needed to restore us to health. They would be mankinds key to survival, they were the "Warriors of the Rainbow". There would come a day of awakening when all the peoples of all the tribes would form a New World of Justice, Peace, Freedom and recognition of the Great Spirit.

The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would spread these messages and teach all peoples of the Earth or "Elohi". They would teach them how to live the "Way of the Great Spirit". They would tell them of how the world today has turned away from the Great Spirit and that is why our Earth is "Sick".

The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would show the peoples that this "Ancient Being" (the Great Spirit), is full of love and understanding, and teach them how to make the "Earth or Elohi" beautiful again. These Warriors would give the people principles or rules to follow to make their path right with the world. These principles would be those of the Ancient Tribes. The Warriors of the Rainbow would teach the people of the ancient practices of Unity, Love and Understanding. They would teach of Harmony among people in all four comers of the Earth.

Like the Ancient Tribes, they would teach the peoples how to pray to the Great Spirit with love that flows like the beautiful mountain stream, and flows along the path to the ocean of life. Once again, they would be able to feel joy in solitude and in councils. They would be free of petty jealousies and love all mankind as their brothers, regardless of color, race or religion. They would feel happiness enter their hearts, and become as one with the entire human race. Their hearts would be pure and radiate warmth, understanding and respect for all mankind, Nature, and the Great Spirit. They would once again fill their minds, hearts, souls, and deeds with the purest of thoughts. They would seek the beauty of the Master of Life - the Great Spirit! They would find strength and beauty in prayer and the solitudes of life.

Their children would once again be able to run free and enjoy the treasures of Nature and Mother Earth. Free from the fears of toxins and destruction, wrought by the Yo-ne-gi and his practices of greed. The rivers would again run clear, the forests be abundant and beautiful, the animals and birds would be replenished. The powers of the plants and animals would again be respected and conservation of all that is beautiful would become a way of life.

The poor, sick and needy would be cared for by their brothers and sisters of the Earth. These practices would again become a part of their daily lives.

The leaders of the people would be chosen in the old way - not by their political party, or who could speak the loudest, boast the most, or by name calling or mud slinging, but by those whose actions spoke the loudest. Those who demonstrated their love, wisdom, and courage and those who showed that they could and did work for the good of all, would be chosen as the leaders or Chiefs. They would be chosen by their "quality" and not the amount of money they had obtained. Like the thoughtful and devoted "Ancient Chiefs", they would understand the people with love, and see that their young were educated with the love and wisdom of their surroundings. They would show them that miracles can be accomplished to heal this world of its ills, and restore it to health and beauty.

The tasks of these "Warriors of the Rainbow" are many and great. There will be terrifying mountains of ignorance to conquer and they shall find prejudice and hatred. They must be dedicated, unwavering in their strength, and strong of heart. They will find willing hearts and minds that will follow them on this road of returning "Mother Earth" to beauty and plenty - once more.

The day will come, it is not far away. The day that we shall see how we owe our very existence to the people of all tribes that have maintained their culture and heritage. Those that have kept the rituals, stories, legends, and myths alive. It will be with this knowledge, the knowledge that they have preserved, that we shall once again return to "harmony" with Nature, Mother Earth, and mankind. It will be with this knowledge that we shall find our "Key to our Survival".

This is the story of the "Warriors of the Rainbow" and this is my reason for protecting the culture, heritage, and knowledge of my ancestors. I know that the day "Eyes of Fire" spoke of - will come! I want my children and grandchildren to be prepared to accept this task.The task of being one of the........"Warriors of the Rainbow".

The Levels Of Clairsentience Part 3

In part 3 of the discussion on The Levels of Clairsentience, which is a continuation from The Levels Of Clairsentience Part 1 and The Levels Of Clairsentience Part 2, we will be looking at two different categories of feeler clairsentience, Emotional Projection and Emotional Absorption, and what exists below this level.

It is important to note, if it was not made apparent in the part 2 of this discussion, that within this list we will be looking not only at the extra sensory gifts that can arise out of the different categories, but also some of the psychological issues which can arise, as well. But this is in no way a complete list for either portion. Nor are the behavioral traits lists and quizzes that are offered up, a fullproof psychological means of diagnosing oneself.




Emotional Projection

In looking at this part of the chart, what one will find is that behaviors get progressively worse. Does this mean these are the only outcomes of Emotional Projection? No. These are the extreme cases, at both ends of the spectrum. At one end is Psychological Immaturity, which utilizes such ploys as Emotional Projection in order to feel secure and cope, because they lack the maturity to handle certain situations appropriately. And Empathic Healing, which is a form of Emotional Projection that can ease the emotional and sometimes physical suffering of others. And at the other end of the spectrum you find the three personality traits referred to as the dark triad, Machiavellianism, Narcissism, and Psychopathy (which is also referred to as Sociopathism or Sociopathy). There are many levels of all of these, and it should not be supposed, based on any of the quizzes or behavioral checklists, that one is definitively one or the other.

Emotional Projection occurs when a person's thoughts and/or emotions are ascribed onto another person or people. It can also be seen as a defense mechanism which occurs when a person's own unacceptable or threatening feelings are repressed and then attributed to someone else.

Empathic Healing is a powerful energy healing method that works to clear emotions which block the free flow of life energy in our bodies. Energy overload, too much pain, fear or anger to process creates blockages, which effects our physical, mental and emotional health. Empathic healing works with the empathic layer of psychic phenomenon, to help clear the emotional blockages which form in the body.

For the Psychologically Immature, defense mechanisms such as Projection are psychological strategies brought into play in order to cope with reality and to maintain self-image.

Narcissism is a pattern of traits and behaviors which signify infatuation and obsession with one's self to the exclusion of all others and the egotistic and ruthless pursuit of one's gratification, dominance and ambition.

The DSM-IV Diagnostic Criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder:

1. a grandiose sense of self-importance

2. is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love

3. believes that he or she is "special" and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)

4. requires excessive admiration

5. has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations

6. is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends

7. lacks empathy and is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others

8. is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her

9. shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

Machiavellianism is "the employment of cunning and duplicity in statecraft or in general conduct". It held that people were by nature untrustworthy, malevolent and self-serving, and thus those in power could only maintain their position through exploitative and deceitful actions. Machiavellianism is also a term used to describe a person's tendency to deceive and manipulate others for personal gain. Machiavelli Personality Test.

A Sociopath is a person, as a psychopathic personality, whose behavior is antisocial and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience. Someone whose social behavior is extremely abnormal. Sociopaths are interested only in their personal needs and desires, without concern for the effects of their behavior on others.

Emotional Absorption

Emotional Absorption occurs when one person takes in the emotional energy of another person. Depending on the person and their motivational intent, Emotional Absorption can act as a cloning mechanism or as an ability which steals away the emotional energy, leaving the other person without that emotion.

Emotional Introjection is an unconscious internalization of aspects of the world (especially aspects of persons) within the self in such a way that the internalized representation takes over the psychological functions of the external objects. It can also be defined as a psychological defense mechanism involving appropriation of an external happening and its assimilation by the personality, making it a part of the self. In basic terms, it means to take on the emotional traits of others.

An Empath is a person who has an acute or highly developed sense of empathy. Empathy is the capability to share your feelings and understand another's emotion and feelings and is often characterized as the ability to "put oneself into another's shoes". It is said that the Empath has the ability to take in the negative emotional energy of others and transmute that energy, turning it into light energy which is then given back to the person the Empath is working with. The intentional offering back of that energy is one of the only thing that set the Empath apart from those termed as psychic vampires, which is defined in the next section of this discussion.

An Empathic Vampire is a vampire which feeds off the energies from emotions. Like all of the other types listed above, this to is another name for one who feeds on emotional energy. But the thing that sets this particular type apart from the others is the empathic ability the vampire possesses along with the ability to absorb energy. Empathic vampires are highly at risk health wise if they are not experienced enough with changing energies and such. There are many negative energies involved in empathic feeding, and if the vampire is incapable of handling them or changing them to more positive energies, they may take on that emotion as their own and even feel it 10 times more.


What Does This Have To Do With You?

What does this have to do with you? Alot probably. Because just as you might wonder if you are Clairsentient, you might also wonder about others, as well. And it is important to understand the full range of abilities and behavioral traits that fall under this category. These abilities are not limited to those who are altruistic and can very readily accompany many different mental illnesses.

An example of this occurs when one assumes that one is simply Empathic instead of such diagnosises as ADD or ADHD. There is a notably high rate of Empathic people who are diagnosed with ADD or ADHD, whether they are adults or children. But does one, such as being Empathic, nullify the other, being ADD/ADHD? Sadly, no.

Both of these issues must be dealt with hand in hand to find a healthy balance. Denial of one in favor of another simply exaserbates the problems that can arise from this combination. So it is important to work with doctors if one has a combination of issues, instead of pushing away from them in favor of new age ideas alone.
