Seth, a new reader, asks:
Lately, about three months or so ago, I woke up to a voice in my head saying “dont worry, adjustments are being made” (i was really upset at that time). Then, I started noticing strong tingling sensations. Whenever my thoughts turn to joyful things, pleasant tingling floods my back. On the other hand, sometimes i feel sort of a hot tingling sensation lightly on the skin. What would you recommend to figure out whats up?
I’m posting this question because it’s fairly far outside of my experience. I have a few ideas for Seth, but I’m hoping you (my readers) will be able to help him, too.
I see a few possibilities for the voice:
Message from a spirit: Maybe a spirit (or some ethereal software) sent those exact words to the auditory portions of Seth’s brain. This is my first thought, but I don’t think it’s particularly likely. Why would a spirit send that message? Wouldn’t there be something else more useful, with more details about the adjustments? Also, sending a message in audible words is relatively difficult, unless the receiver is experienced in receiving that type of message, which Seth is not. So, possible, but unlikely.
His unconscious: Maybe the message was Seth’s unconscious reassuring him. He was just waking up, after all, so this could even be a remembered snippet of a dream. The content of the message could be strictly from his unconscious, or it could be an impression that a spirit dropped into his unconscious, filtering up to his awareness through auditory channels. (I don’t know of any way to tell the difference after the fact.) This is my best guess.
Also, whenever I receive an email from someone hearing voices or seeing things, it’s always possible they’re just crazy. But Seth comes off as completely sane — he writes clearly and logically, stays on topic, and seems to be aware that hearing voices is odd. (We’ve exchanged about a dozen emails.) So, I don’t think crazy is a good explanation.
(Seth, sorry if that last paragraph bugged you, but it’s an important discussion to have when we’re trying to figure out what’s going on.)
The tingling sounds like energy. While most people have to consciously work to build energy, some people find that it just happens. For me, when I was first learning energy healing (around 10 years ago), I’d get energy tingles from inspiring movies. What was happening was, my mental muscles were feeling this inspiration in my mind, and weren’t distinguishing between a movie and a visualization.
What this indicates, though, is that some of Seth’s mental muscles are waking up. Which suggests that the message, that “adjustments are being made,” correlated in some way with his mental muscles awakening. Which, again, suggests to me that the message is his unconscious filtering and actual experience. (If those exact words were a message from a spirit, I’d expect something more helpful, along the lines of “the drivers of magick in your mind are coming online.”)
I got the impression from Seth that this was an ongoing thing, although looking back over her correspondence, that may have been mistaken. But, assuming this happens somewhat regularly, here’s how I’d find out more about what’s going on.
First, ask. Think about the voice, and think about sending it a question, like “what is being adjusted?” or “tell me more about the adjustments,” or something along those lines. This will get filtered through Seth’s unconscious, so he should pick a phrase that feels natural to him.
I’d ask for the information to come to me in two ways. First, I’d ask the voice to try and send a message right then. This probably won’t work, though if it does, that means the message is straight from the spirit, rather than getting filtered through his unconscious.
But second, I’d just ask to receive a response when I wake up. That’s how the other messages came to Seth, and other psychics report similar experiences — Lisa receives a lot of her psychic intuitions this way, filtered through our unconscious overnight. So this is how I would expect to get the message, and it would provide further evidence for scenario two (the messages being filtered through Seth’s unconscious).
There is one other possibility: Maybe the spirit is not acting in Seth’s best interests, and is lying to him. But, in my experience, malicious spirits don’t leave messages. If that were the case, I wouldn’t expect to have the auditory message, and I wouldn’t expect to have all the tingling.
Also, if Seth knows an experienced mage, he should get them to connect to him and see what they notice.
One of my favorite things about blogging is tapping into the experience of my readers. What do you think is going on with Seth, and how do you think he should handle it?If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
