Singer, we all have demons that follow us around, they lurk in places we can’t normally see them… occasionally when there’re feeling their oats, they challenge you. It might manifest itself in the form of a personal relationship, such as opposition to a close family member’s belief system, or even the abusive behavior of a spouse. Everywhere you look there’s so much madness in the world right now, it would seem the demons are having their way with us. I think a lot of people tend to stick their head in the sand when it becomes too difficult to face what they feel is a hopeless situation. But, I think a hopeless situation remains that way until you pull your head out of the sand and begin to push back.

And, oh yeah, I’m going to Hell too, maybe I’ll see you there.


Good evening JimDe.

lol I'll never again be in hell. Hell is a state of mind that I choose not to entertain. When that state comes upon me, I eat chocolate, take a hot bath and play in the garden. I put on happy music and read romance novels. In other words, I work to move out of that state, to bring my Self up. Fill up with happy and you will feel that way. ;)

I'm really enjoying this conversation.

You wrote: Everywhere you look there’s so much madness in the world right now,

I believe there is an equal amount of madness as sanity. It just depends on where you put your attention.

You wrote: I think a lot of people tend to stick their head in the sand when it becomes too difficult to face what they feel is a hopeless situation.

This might be because they are not yet ready to move out of the situation. They may not have been abused enough to realize then embrace their own self-worth, or maybe they are destined to become healers. They can't become a healer until after they've experienced being healed and they can't be healed unless they have been hurt, sick or dis-eased.

I've experienced anger even rage from people I had attempted to help when they hadn't asked for help. They defended their abuser or addiction or situation. It came to me that they had worked hard to get into the painful difficult situation they were in. If I helped them out they'd have to work to create another similar or more difficult situation to replace the one they'd just gotten out of.

I now respect another's right to suffer. I am available. All they have to do is ask. Often the best way to help is to do nothing.

You wrote: I think a hopeless situation remains that way until you pull your head out of the sand and begin to push back

I AGREE. Personal responsibility will set you fee. You are only a victim if you believe you are. :)

It's all so interesting. Thank you.

Singer, you’re welcome, but it is my pleasure,
Personally, I prefer the Blues, I wonder why?
I think ____ ____ said it best;

‘There was a young girl whose heart was a frown
‘cause she was crippled for life and she couldn’t speak a sound
And she wished and prayed she could stop livin’,
So she decided to die.’

Good evening to you too,

Good Morning JimDe.

I like blues because it breaks the rules while staying within the parameters. That's a musician thing though and I'd have to play for you to help non-blues and jazz musicians to understand.

As far as why we are drawn to sadness, I believe it is because we are striving to become love. Not the warm fuzzy weak form of love, but the limitless all-powerful, all-healing force that is love. In order to become love we must study what love is not.

In the poem you shared, the young girl has taken on an earth life that is so difficult that she can't bear it. She is unable to perceive the unseen help available to her, feels stuck and decides to die. Not unlike some video games.

To me, dieing is just leaving the body. The soul goes on and is indestructable and eternal. She leaves her body so that she can get help. There is no judgement and punishment dished out for "deciding to die". There are natural consequences. She'll have to take on a similar, perhaps more challenging, earth life in the future. She'll be better prepared then to endure and progress. Meanwhile, the path toward love is inescapable. Eventually the soul becomes the inspirer who despite all of her physical challenges is happy, grateful and encouraging to others.

I am glad you chose to share this poem.

No matter what you do, someone, somewhere will probablly take it wrong. That's the genius of this plane of existance. It keeps things interesting.

For instance: When I think of The Laws of Nature, I think of:

The Law of Gravity (what goes up, must come down)
The Law of Relativity (for every positive there is an equal and opposite negative)
and what's that one called where energy can be altered but cannot be destroyed...

Laws of Nature cannot be broken. It is not possible. Since people manage to commit suicide it must not be against Natural Law.

Now that being said:

I would give a joyous existance to all and everyone
~ enough food to nourish
~ enough love to nurture

But, consider this, how many people reject help offered?
Why do they reject what would cure all of their problems?

I believe it is because they are learning. They are in a difficult life class, learning in the most powerful life-altering way available - suffering. At any time they could reach out and accept the helping hand of spirit, but they look down to avoid the loving eyes of helpers. They choose to accomplish on their own.

I find comfort in the belief that they will evolve, because Natural Law will allow nothing else.

Every thing evolves - Another Law of Nature.

I very rarely tell anyone about my "sense" when it comes dealing with the super natural. Only my closest dearest friends and hubby know.

Well.. and now those here!

It's a funny thing actually, I should of homed it better and studied it but a large part of me is too concerned
(fear of the unknown you might call it). But there's been things I've seen, feelings, etc. I have experienced throughout my life that were generated from spirits.

Not exactly a poem, but lyrics from a Jimi Hendrix song called Castles Made of Sand.

There was a young girl, whos heart was a frown
'Cause she was crippled for life,
and she couldn't speak a sound
And she wished and prayed she could stop living,
So she decided to die
She drew her wheelchair to the edge of the shore
And to her legs she smiled 'you won't hurt me no more'
But then a sight she'd never seen made her jump and say
'look a golden winged ship is passing my way'

And it really didn't have to stop, it just kept on going...

And so castles made of sand slips into the sea, eventually


A beautiful song.

This particular verse to me holds hope and not despair.

Just thought the verse needed to be completed.

I haven't told my family, and I don't think I will. I have already encountered some bad entities and don't want to accidentally endanger them. I'm cautious about telling people what I can do, so I probably won't say much here.

There is power in the quiet - in privacy. In addition, the people who are prejudiced are lacking the knowlege and experience to understand. They fear and judge. My heart is open to those who make it safe for me.

Regarding "bad entities" ... are you talking about the people who are physical and may hurt you or the non-phyisical who cannot hurt you. By the way, you can't "hurt" them either. Though we may influence the spiritual with our thoughts, we cannot hurt or heal without the consent of the other in the non-physical. Angels can help. Call upon them and they are there, as close as a thought. Perhaps you already enjoy the company of angels. You simply have to raise your elecrtomagnetic vibration and then ... mmmmm ... feels good, peaceful, content, sweetness - love.

It is my experience that if you are feeling anxiety or anything emotionally negative when being visited by a non-physical being, you can rid yourself of their company by raising your own vibration. Fill your mind with loving thoughts, happy scenes, blessed gratefulness and they will not be able to reach you. OR call upon an angel to help to escort the other to the otherside where they can be healed and be free. BLESSED BE!

Though we may influence the spiritual with our thoughts, we cannot hurt or heal without the consent of the other in the non-physical.

This may not be the right board to talk about this since most of this doesn't have to do with ghosts, at least I think. My abilities started showing up this year, this is not all of them, just what I'm comfortable saying: flashes of how to do certain things, visions of bad feeling people, astral projection... and since then the attacks have happened.

I've had a lot of people at the school tapping my energy the closer final's week comes. I know when someone's draining me, and I try to stop it. I can't pinpoint who is doing it though. I start hacking up phlegm after the attacks. Even after a meal, I don't feel the same. This may sound strange, but ginseng helps me get back to normal and hack out more stuff.

Those are the least of my problems... sometimes people try to get into my head. I know they aren't dead. I get a headache or pressure on my chest when this happens. I try to ground myself and shout at them to get out.

I've been doing research on psychic protection, but so far what I've tried hasn't worked. I found some new things on the web today, so maybe they will work.

Angels can help. Call upon them and they are there, as close as a thought. Perhaps you already enjoy the company of angels. You simply have to raise your elecrtomagnetic vibration and then ... mmmmm ... feels good, peaceful, content, sweetness - love.

A friend has seen my animal guides from time to time. Whenever I try to meditate, I astral project accidentally, but I haven't been able to contact them. Several of my friends have seen the spirit of my grandfather in my house. I feel that that is true. I believe he's around to protect me.

It is my experience that if you are feeling anxiety or anything emotionally negative when being visited by a non-physical being, you can rid yourself of their company by raising your own vibration. Fill your mind with loving thoughts, happy scenes, blessed gratefulness and they will not be able to reach you. OR call upon an angel to help to escort the other to the otherside where they can be healed and be free. BLESSED BE!

Thanks for the advice. I will try this. I've been able to channel positive energy before. I think my problem is that I don't have an owners manual to go with my abilities. Sometimes I instinctively know what to do. Other times I feel helpless. If these things went after my family, I don't know if I could protect them.

I was into this sort of thing but........... My earliest memorie has to be when I was around 11, my sister, her friend Natalie and I were looking at ladybirds when Natalie noticed there was something wrong with one. I looked at it more closely (it appeared to be dead) so I touched it then it flew of.

My uncle got me into using crystals since I was around 9 yrs old and kind of taught me about healing energies etc etc. I read more about it and now I have a general understanding of which crystals could be used for protection and healing etc and I think my uncle told me I had some psychic influence.

What do you all think (I am 21 yrs old)?

I'm in my late 20s (from the sounds of what you've said I didn't know if your abilities have started coming out of the woodwork yet), so maybe your abilities will start developing more later like mine did. A friend of mine thinks that my abilities started coming out because of an attack.

I'm very interested in types of healing and crystals. I carry a bag of stones on me at all times. I cleanse them with holy water from time to time. So far, I've been able to heal a sprained ankle, and that's the worst I've healed. I didn't use stones though. I can't explain what exactly I did. I somehow knew what to do to my energy to heal it.

I'm happy to say that someone has contacted me with great advice on psychic protection and how to not attract too much attention to myself. When I told a friend of mine about my fears, she's told me she'd teach me some things before we go out on any ghost hunts.

My mother has known through observation that I had a "gift" when I was a little girl. That gift has erupted into a paranormalcy in my adulthood that even I have a hard time understanding and controlling. My husband knows about the things that I see and hear and he actively encourages me not to put up walls to block my gift.

Other than that, no one else knows. Well...you guys now, I suppose! :clap:
