Growing up with psychic or empathic abilities isn’t always a “good” thing. Way too often such innate talents are seen by others as having some sort of deviant qualities to them, as if we’re somehow dealing with suspicious otherworldly influences, or worse.
Parents or other significant adults with misguided religious views might believe we’re dealing with demonic, or even satanic entities, and they do what they can to beat it out of us psychically, emotionally, literally, or some combination of these powerful persuasions. Believing we’re somehow wrong, we do what we can to shut it down in order to become productive members of society.
When we reach the astrologically significant ages of 21, 29, 40 or 50, a little voice inside of us may call us back to remembering our childhood abilities or “flights of fantasy,” and a spiritual search may ensue, or should happen if we’ve been paying attention. We may easily develop a palpable sense that our old belief systems are no longer working for us, regardless of how deeply ingrained certain traditional thoughts might be.
If this sounds familiar, I’d strongly suggest reading either or both of Eckhart Tolle’s books “The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment” and/or “A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose.” Tolle’s recent collaboration with Oprah Winfrey (both Aquarians!) indicates that millions of people all over the world will be linking up with the power of the here and now – the most irresistible force in the universe – so it would behoove us all to catch this wave if we want to survive and flourish in the inevitable changes coming at us.
The heck with it – the changes are already here – right here in the here and now. Get on board or forever regret missing this train (of thought).
