vertical line Posted on Sep.04.2012 @ 09:48AM EDT by shayne
well here goes. this crap has been happening to me long enough.

a radio plugged into the wall a few weeks ago. i didnt like the oldies station so turned it to a station i liked. well it got all garbled and wouldnt play any station i turned it too. well i went to check out other peoples radios. they worked fine. so i told a girl at work about it when she went to relieve me for break. i came back the radio was moved and i said. hey you got it working. she said yeah.......it wasnt plugged in.

another.

today i went to get beer. well i wanted a cold case. so i went in the freezer and closed the door behind me. i grabbed a case and headed for the door. it wouldnt open. i tried three times. till finally i knocked on the door. they came and opened it no problem. they even tried it a few times. pfffthh.

another.

a week i was good physically. no pain. nothing. then a week later pain all over again. no. it dont work that way. period.

another.

just this weekend i get a email confirming a friend request from someone i know at work. from meetme.com. well i never sent it. period. no one and not even me would know he was on it. period.

for a hour one time i was perplexed by wanting to harm someone one day. i kept saying i wont. bullcrap. then a person i know said to me....lets harm this same person i was thinking about. bull malarky.

another.

i sat gonna type something on facebook. well my keyboard which lights up kept going on and off. hmm...so i thought i short or not connected correctly. so i turned on the lights and checked the plugs. turned off the lights. and sat back down to type. well it kept going off and on. and then the spacer that you type with and exists when you put your mouse on a writing area spazzed out. ketp going and going and going. even after the keyboard came back on. i hit enter. it should have stopped. till i said out loud. this is unnatural and cannot happen. it stopped . no problems since.

vertical line I know of nothing that would do that.
What do you think is causing this??

My life has always been simple and logical.
No spirits or sprites. No strange sounds or bumps in the night.
So, it just seems impossible to me that any of this could happen.
Not saying it didn't. Just that my life has always been simple.

The only thing that could be said to be unusual would be
that Murphy's law happens more often than not.

vertical line Have you ever seen that television show "Alphas"? Its sort of a FBI/X-Men type of television show. Anyway there are people with "super" powers in that show. One of them can see everything as cause and effect patterns and he can affect these patterns. One little change in the environment which causes a domino effect and changes everything else.

When you develop your mental awareness to a very fine point there is the capacity to consciously choose outcomes to occur like this. It looks like magic but it really is not it is the power of an awakened mind. Which by the way there are warnings against demonstrating these abilities because they confuse people and can cause your ego to really wake up.

Anyway, what I am trying to get at is you can touch this ability in reverse. Where your expectation of negative events begins to generate the negative events. It is not supernatural, just that you find a way to reaffirm the reality in your head.

I think there is psychological theory for all of this.

I know what you mean. 

It only takes one solid *proof*, and then you have to play in a whole different ballpark.  You can no longer dismiss things as happenstance, or your imagination.

That doesnt mean you have to believe everything.  You must still keep your wits about you, and be prepared to defend yourself.  It just means that you understand that whistling in the graveyard wont help you.

I know.  *Tens of thousands of tens of thousands*  And thats just the angels, as there are many more of many other species that may join in as well.

Whisling in the graveyard wont help anyone.  I have met many other creatures from other planes of existence, who can travel to this plane from theirs, and they are quite formidable.  Jesus was on a kindly mission to save mankind.  That was then, this is now.

Now if I recall what I have read or heard of scriptures, when Jesus comes back it is purported that he will lead a *Heavenly Hoard* of such beings.  Is that right ?

I met him in my astral travels and we talked about what would happen when he comes back.  I dont remember specifically what was said, just that that is what we talked about.  As I was waking up, he put his hand on my shoulder and said, "Be at peace.  Be still in your heart.  Be true to God."  I have tried to stick to that.  If Im still around when he comes back, Im sure the rest will come back to me as needs be.

The apocalypse was a dream about an ill fate.
I had a dream where each job I did brought me closer to enlightenment.
When all the jobs were done, I ended up on a tropical island where water flowed and fruits abound.
But, there was no one ... no others like me. Such a beautiful place  .. yet so lonely.
I searched for others and found a piece of paper. In my hands, it became trash but no place to throw it.
How can it be so lonely and nothing can be discarded??

Good one.

All One = Alone.

A tropical island sounds nice, but from there you can go anywhere.

You can let out a yell and shake the universe,

Or you can spread your wings and take flight,

Or ....
