Telepathy is unity based.
The idea is communication trough communion: the persons involved
heighten their awareness and Love of each other until they reach
Oneness. They become One.
Telepathic communication doesn't happen externally, but internally
- within Self.
Strict separation of the persons involved is not existent. The
person who wishes to get telepathic has to put away his limited
perception of self and embrace all the energies he formerly
did not feel/think/present as being himself.
Every fear overcome increases the clarity of perception and
the power to change energy flows and structures; thus increases
the ability to convey a message.
Constant heightened awareness of All is by itself the receiving
part of telepathy, and it is quite possible to observe/receive/embrace/absorb
energies of an individual unaware of this process.
I should mention that this is not 'reading the mind'; you don't
necessarily get to know the words that are formed in the other
The first step is noticing the so-called body language. These
are certain movements and gestures which clearly allude to what
that person does, thinks, and feels. These gestures are mostly
conscious or semi-conscious.
The next step is 'refining' the perception of body language
by paying attention to things which are not so obvious: each
twitch of the fingers, the flexing of each muscle, eye movement,
breathing, attitude and posture - unconscious and unobvious
gestures. While 'simple' body language is easy to understand
because of the clarity and perhaps commonness of the gestures,
'refined' body language is harder to comprehend because even
if we notice the related signals, we may not know what caused
this certain quality and its meaning may elude us.
That's why self-observation is important!
By observing your own behavior and demeanor, you can become
aware of your own behavior, your own movements and your own
conscious or unconscious expressions you frequently use.
By observing your thoughts/feelings, and the connection between
these thoughts/feelings and your behavior, you gain knowledge
When you gain knowledge of yourself, you also gain knowledge
of others because the similarities between your and their behavior
allows you to gain insight into their mind/hearth/self.
("Aha! This how I acted like when I did/thought/felt
like this and that!")
By going even further into in-depth observation you have to
give up the limitations of language and linear thinking. You
can do neat little tricks like associating colors, sounds, sense
of touch and other qualities to the things/energies perceived
- just to keep things organized if this suits you.
By observing the flow/radiation of these energies comes the
realization that all is indeed one and it is YOU!
You know/feel/ARE the powerful presence encompassing
Back to the question of why telepathy is not really 'reading
Selves eaten away by fears and limits; the selves of less aware
persons who have given up all or part of their personal Truth
and Power - these selves are crammed with much more unconscious
than conscious content, and the conscious will is often contrary
to the unconscious will.
The conscious will is often even contrary to itself!
A state of confusion hardly translates into words, because
once such a state is emptied, ordered or formulated, it is not
Not only the unconscious, but even the conscious part of ourselves
is not putting everything into a formulated stream of
words, and is even further from putting everything into a well
formulated stream of words.
As you can see, telepathy isn't about picking or putting words
into a mind separate from your own.
All you do is observe/change/live your own Self - it's just
that this Self is more allowing, more Loving than what we ordinarily
refer to as self.
If you insist on wordlike telepathy, I can think of three ways
to do it:
1. The first way is similar to a form of channeling:
You observe into detail the other persons physical and energetic
behavior/presence and use the words and way of thinking that
are the best match for that presence and what it tries to express.
2. Attain a very high level of identifying yourself with others.
This way, if you are able to achieve it, the thoughts are your
own and you can read your own mind however and as ever you want
3. If the person you are trying to communicate with is a 'clear'
person (aware, radiating, enlightened, honest, fearless, powerful,
loving - it's easy to recognize such persons, especially if
they belong to the opposite sex; just don't forget to breathe
and be sure to pick up your jaw from the floor when you realize
you dropped it!), she may project her thoughts using your inner
symbolism in such a way to make it very easy for you to understand.
Even in words only if that is her choice.
This way is similar to the previous one, it's just the other
way around: someone else is loving you very much and has accepted
you as him/herself.
It is useless to force a more basic reality into a description
limited by language, unless you are enjoying it or using it
as a tool which complements whatever you're doing or whoever
Direct awareness reduces most of the time the need for language
and unnecessary associations with symbols.
Words and sentences are one way to express truth.
Remember there are many ways to express TRUTH!
