We are so ready to dismiss them.
Sometimes you experience something that feels very strong at the time, but when you come away from it, you wonder if you were just making it all up or you were mistaken.
I get this a lot. In fact, I can imagine my guides’ frustration as I tend to go back and forth on experiences which seem to fade in my memory almost as soon as they are done.
Maybe it’s because I have a really poor memory or part of me still has trouble accepting that the unbelievable is real. Or perhaps it’s fear that my ego is out of control and making it all up.
Either way, it’s frustrating: Very frustrating.
My own experiences are so unreal that after the event that I can’t even tell people about them. It’s as though I shift into another frame of mind.
What feels so compelling at the time will feel like someone who is out for attention.
I have to wonder, though: Can I afford to keep this up? Personally, I don’t think so. Personally, I feel that it’s time to stop doubting and just lay my cards on the table.
What bothers me is that I’ve seen so many others do the same.
What they tell others seemed like rubbish to me. I’m not even sure if they did experience something or if they just really just fooled themselves into believing their story.
Their stories just didn’t sound real. Or ring true.
While I didn’t sneer or call them out on those things, it did hurt their credibility, at least in my eyes and for those around them.
Then, on the other hand, there are certainly plenty of people for whom I accepted their stories and experiences without a second thought.
What is the difference between those I believe and those I don’t?
I feel, that in the end, it comes down to if you feel the resonance of truth behind their words.
As an Empath, I can sense if something is true or not. If it isn’t true, I will feel anger, antsy and extreme annoyance. (For instance, something I felt about a recently departed so called psychic and many who are still living and in the same line of work.)
In the end, you can only tell your story and trust that those who hear it will listen to their feelings and judge if it’s true or not.
I was going to write about an experience I had last week end, but ended up heading in another direction. So I’ll leave that for another entry.
So, how do others handle this conundrum? Do you believe what you experiences? Do you feel you can tell others? Have people believed you?
