You know how sometimes, you can walk into a room after two people have been arguing and you can feel the tension? The room seems to be thick with it, but it isn’t something you can see or touch. Or, if you go to a holiday party where everyone is laughing, drinking and having a good time, then you can feel the warmth of it and it engulfs you like a hug? It seems to me that people, through our complex emotions, emit these energies in a way that is, as of right now, incomprehensible to us.
Is it that people are emitting these emotions, or is it our perception of body language and facial expressions that causes us to sense these quandaries. It would be interesting to hear from a blind person whether or not they could sense these same things through hearing alone.
Certainly some animals are more skilled than we are on picking up subtle body language, or is it our energies they are picking up on? We have all experienced our cat seemingly reading our mind. One moment you are laying on your bed just thinking, when suddenly your cat pops into your thoughts, and in the next 30 seconds, he appears. Did you will him to come with your thoughts, or did you foresee his coming? It’s likely just a coincidence. But it sure does seem like I forget all about my cell phone until I suddenly get the urge to look for it. I suddenly feel like I need it with me. And once I find it, within a couple of minutes my dad sends me a text.
My friend was trying to kennel train a middle aged pomeranian one time, and he didn’t like it at all. As soon as she would even think about putting him in there, he would magically disappear. There was nothing she could do. He could seemingly read her mind. I was sure at the time that he was observant of subtle changes in her behavior. And I still believe that’s a major factor. But the more I learn about energy, the more I am suspect that energy has something to do with it.
I am thinking that maybe people and animals emit energies that help them to survive. They say all animals have evolved with some kind of protection from predators. For humans, we have soft bodies, but our brains protect us. Cats have sharp claws and teeth, turtles have their hard shell, and stick insects blend in with their surroundings. On the other hands, humans have complex emotions that allow us to bond with each other on a level that not a lot of other species can. We can also bond with other animals. Cats and dogs have an ability to make us love them and care for them, which helps them to survive. Lots of animals seem to play the cute card, and many humans find them appealing; Owls, mice, bunny rabbits. But other humans seem to be immune to this cuteness. Deer are a good example. Some humans find them adorable, and others see them as dinner. Does this difference have to do with something in our brain, and our complex emotions. Is the deer tapping into this emotion, not consciously of course, as a means to protect itself? It’s a stretch I know, and I promise I’m not high.
I saw a very large ugly spider today, just innocently weaving its web while I was trying to eat breakfast. I didn’t feel anything until I actually laid eyes on it, but when I did, my skin almost immediately began to crawl and I lost my appetite. I was suddenly very jumpy and just generally creeped out. I got to thinking that this feeling of creepiness must come from somewhere. Psychologists might speculate that it comes from some kind of incident in our youth, which could still be possible. But I got to thinking that creepiness might be something that the spider actually emits to protect itself from humans. Of course, my cat is immune to this because he does not have complex emotions, and if the spider can hide in a small crack or up on a wall, then he is safe from the cat. But a spider is really helpless against a human, who can get a ladder, or move objects to get to it. Perhaps it’s creepy energy and design is a form of defense against us. Really, I can’t think of another reason why just having many legs or many eyes should be a threat to me. And that so many humans are susceptible to the spiders “charms” is uncanny. Something else must be at work here. Something innate to the spider itself. If it can creep us out long enough, maybe it can get to a safe crack in the wall before the shock value wares off.
I’m not attempting to personify the spider. I don’t think it “knows” what it is doing any more than one species of butterfly puts on a cloak in the morning in order to look like another species of butterfly for protection. I’m suggesting that it just is….it exists in the same way that when I get dressed up and actually feel beautiful, that I tend to act a certain way to people who seem attracted to me. I emit confidence and sexiness, which people react to.
Anyway. It’s just a thought.
