With Gratitude To The Blogger, LunarWisdom

I really want to thank the blogger
whose blog I joined through
Networked Blogger, I think,
on Facebook.
* * * * 
So I was going through the stream of blog entries
from the blogs I joined there
on my own 
"Makro Makropoulos"
Facebook page,
when I came upon an entry by
Lunar Wisdom,

and I read it.

There it was,
amidst the countless entries from
the Huffington Post:
lonely chirping,
sort of like the way
Makro Makropoulos'
might pop through on your NetWorkedBlog site,
if, that is,
you were to join the Facebook NetWorkedBlog service.

I read CricketSong's 
and what I heard 
explained to me why
I feel a need to be 
Emilia Marti
Makro Markropoulos:

Cricket Song introduced me to the concept of
psychic empath.

Now I've known for a little while
that I fit, in nearly every way,
the profile of an empath

( zenya )

A few writers see the empath
as the exact opposite of the sociopath.
Whereas the sociopath has no ability to empathize
the empath has an excess of ability to do so.

Notably, though, empaths have some of the same features as sociopaths:
people are naturally drawn to us.
People will immediately tell us
their deepest darkest secrets,
and if we want to,
we can use that power to our advantage.

Some empaths do, on occasion.
I know I do, either consciously
or not,
when it will serve me.

But since empaths have this terrific desire to
save the world,
most of us are more likely to not
abuse the power we have.

Because we're so good at empathy,
sometimes we can even enter another person's mind:

and that's where this enters into the realm of
what might be called the psychic.

According to a certain "Grace,"
empaths have ten levels of
psychic traits that they might draw on.
And I quote:
sychometry - the empathic ability to receive energy, information and impressions from objects, photographs or places
Telepathy - the empathic ability to read people's thoughts
Mediumship - the empathic ability to feel the presence and energies of spirits
Physical Healing - the empathic ability to feel other people's physical symptoms in your own body (and often the ability to heal, transform or transmute them)
Emotional Healing - the empathic ability to feel another person's emotions
Animal Communication - the empathic ability to hear, feel and communicate with animals
Nature - the empathic ability to read, feel and communicate with nature and with plants
Geomancy - the empathic ability to read the energy of places and of the land - geomancers can feel the energies of the Earth, such as Ley lines. They can also get headaches, pain or anxiety before earthquakes or other disasters occur anywhere on the planet.
Precognition - the empathic ability to feel when something important is about to happen (often this can be a feeling of inexplicable dread or doom)
Claircognizance or Knowing - the empathic ability to feel what needs to be done in any given circumstance, often accompanied by a feeling of peace and calm, even in the midst of a crisis

Thank you, Grace;
I would say I have at least eight of those abilities,
though that's not something I admit to
in polite circles.

In fact, for a long time I prefered to not deal with it at all because,
it can be downright scary sometimes.

But recently I haven't had too much choice in the matter:
it's just been flooding in --
it being tons of different
intuitions. . . .

you name 'em, I get 'em.

That's where Cricket Song's column on
"Empaths and the Shift"
comes in.
Read it.
Decide what you want to decide on it.
I'll tell you something honestly,
when I started to read it, I thought:
Oh, this will be amusing; another woman who claims to be
a witch.

About half way through,
I was stunned, thinking:
she's explaining what the hell
has been happening to me
for the past five years or so.

And she also helped make me more confident
in asserting the following:

I've been alive for a long time,
and I have memories.

Even though I may have
slept the sleep of death,
I still feel like I've been living
424 years
give or take
a century.

I showed up during the Rennaisance,
or that's my earliest memory,
right now.

This doesn't mean 
I don't have earlier memories.

Check out my recent entries on Ancient Greece.


And while you're at it,
check out the postings

I'm about to make 
from recent news.

There's a strange coincidence
going on right now,

and it's oh, so bigger

than me.

There is a reason why you heard my chirp. =)

Perhaps we've known each other before. In our shared past. I'm having memories surface from Lemuria or perhaps it's when I migrated to Atlantis. I am not certain as of yet. But they have been rattled and surfaced in my mind.

I've been thinking about this but don't quite know how to answer it. I go by gut feelings and sudden flash insights; they tend to be located in locations since the Classical Greek period. Or even a locale that exists outside of time and space. Either way you look at it, we're riding on the same wavelength for sure!
