    It is 152pm here and I need time to answer. There is no personal direction towards you in any way you mention. All will be clear maybe when I get the chance to gather thoughts properly. It's my last day of work so that dialogue will be in the immediate future. Talking about triggers may help people understand my style and forgive me the misunderstandings. I'm excited to have these conversations

    Hi there, I don't know if to start a thread on communication or to use this thread, because this one's topic does include aspects of communication. In the meantime, while I ponder, and invite votes and permissions I have recorded a quick message.

    I probably should have gone and had a nana-nap! been nodding off relaxing for a few hours, and are sort of waking up a bit now and having a bite to eat.

    I mentioned having belonged to a forum filled with normal people socialising. I was a member of that forum for about 12 years, while also being a member of forums in the genre such as this one.
    At one point some years ago I had decided to stay local and try and converse with people who don't necessarily want to talk about the kind of topics we all talk about.
    It is a far more pleasant atmosphere in these sorts of places here where we are like minded and respectful of each other.
    I ended up giving up the other forum last year when the management introduced a new feature where members could block other members post from their view. That was the last straw more that the first.
    People had evolved I think. I mean years ago the nature of the novelty of these forms of communication included a large percentage of misunderstanding and people taking offence. The dynamic, people have probably all experienced themselves. I know when I first began conversing in this faceless voiceless way, it was easy to be upset by others. Sometimes they might be trolls, doing it on purpose, other times it was just passion and pitfalls of the form of communication.
    At one point I used to make offhanded reference to "I think I need to put a set of disclaimers in my signature".
    The chaotic energies were an eye opener, watching all the people treading on each others toes. Taking offence when none was given, reacting to all manner of things for reasons ranging from legitimate ones to misfires of word choice, and intentional provocation. It could rally turn into a school yard and I had the chance to observe it all, and be sucked into it less and less.
    One popular thing would be for people to drop into a thread and post something that mocks the person or is a text based verion of an armpit sound or a 'pull my finger' joke.
    Some of my language is sometimes derivative of these years.
    Sometimes I see behaviours which I "think" are initiated from some of these dynamics.
    Sometimes I'm right sometimes I am wrong.
    Sometimes I pick up on an invisible energy coming from people, and sometimes again I am right and wrong.
    It was an interesting way to self evaluate, having people who would attack you.
    You really could feel psychic energy pointed at you when there was an altercation.
    I stopped being outwardly topical regards alternative things, and began just trying to relate and offer perspectives on interpersonal interactions.
    Hopefully I taught as much as I learned.
    My line of topic in this thread had me quite heavily thinking of the types of responses that would be forth coming in such an environment. I have seen some interesting directions in which the topic transmutes into for this instance, gender war.
    There was no person in this thread that I was taking to task or anything. I was in fact becoming aware of how in past versions of the conversation I have tried to make a direction of comment which has been misunderstood both on purpose and/or accidentally. I am hyper aware that there can be people who will read any comment that is challenging, as meaning one is sexist or misogynistic. So yes, I was somewhat triggered also, or I perhaps sensed something which was not there, the conversation to gain clarity on peoples stances can be misread as well.
    I'm a little wary even now, as I hadn't actually thought there was any prolonged issue. Maybe there isn't, I don't necessarily want to address it as one, and then by way doing so, make it sound as if there was. But I also wish for happiness and understanding between all. But, I also want that understanding to try and be genuine. Meaning, I want everyone to be the best them they can be, and to speak from their heart without fear of judgement. So we can strive to make the experience even more sincere and co-operative.
    To do so, we probably have to remember and acknowledge the difficulties in explaining our individual views.
    At each step we can become triggered by something. A desire to rebut, or to whatever. It is really hard, and we have to be kind to ourselves as much as each other.
    Yet, I also like it when people are confident if they can be, and to speak their truths with an amount of passion.
    It is hard to communicate the perfect post, the perfect speech. How do you remember to cross every T and dot every I? there will always be something one forgets to include or excuse. Disclaimers. Considerations, and acknowledgements.
    Perhaps we should try to, but also it would be easier if people could just know, that the other person, has all of our best interests at heart. And that we may even be able to recognise misfires in communication, unfavourable trigger words or whatever, and do our own substituting.

    I am struggling with the parts of this topic where there are multiple things to outline, and which to outline first, and thinking someone may want to hear the point that is yet to come, first, and get reactionary when it doesn't come.
    It's a group responsibility or one where people have facets of responsibility. Like we are responsible for our own feelings to a point and to a point it is not another's responsibility to make the other feel better if they become offended. Yet it truly is also ones responsibility to try and make good on misunderstandings. It can become a case by case scenario in some ways.
    Like in the Edwards Scissorhands clip, sometimes one tries to help, but they end up stuffing it up one way or another.

    There's still plenty more to be said, how it comes down to the male and female energies as well. But I'm going to come up for air.

    Again I ask: Did a post I placed here just disappear? And if so, why? I mentioned having run across a poster who dubbed herself as "The Divine Feminine". I believe that to be good, as it simply reflects the Truth of our wholeness. I believe all are bisexual; it's in our genes. For a cell to be complete, it has to have both male and female characteristics built within it. Now as far as how we express that bisexuality when it comes to our preference as to sexual activity is a totally different matter.

    Your post is there in post 22 Gale.
    Someone replied to it even.
    I agree the human has an ability to access their androgyny (as the more appropriate term rather than bi-sexual), though without being a pedant.
    It seems that the word androgyny gets used mostly in fashion currently. To describe physical characteristics rather than personality.
    But I also believe that in creative groups, different facets of personality within the team can help to create greater understanding and diversity in the group aim if there is mutual respect and understanding.

    Divine Feminine posted her thread about her research into past lives, reincarnation and who was who. She talks about Mary Queen of Scots as part of her reincarnation background. She goes back to the gods with this. She's written some about it at PA.

    She stopped through to wish us happy disclosure earlier this year.

    She focuses a lot on Agenda 21 and writes about it over there.

    Hi Dreamtimer,

    I think she is one of your favorites but I just want to post a reflection here for general food for thought - knowledge for awareness.

    In reading ModWiz's suggested Seth book, Seth offers that what we channel to our 'point of focus' (the here and now/the present) is 'our newly created past'. Meaning that we 'perceive' in the here and now a reflection of targeted 'past knowledge' which pertains to our here and now. And often, it is ignoring a wealth of cosmic knowledge of our 'pasts'. So, to have an awareness of Mary Queen of Scots as a past life while very possible, some might call it even likely, tends to suggest she is lacking a sense of 'power' now.

    Now that I think about it, my attraction to Leonardo Da Vinci is a good analogue. However, the only 'flash' I've ever had about past lives is a scene where I was gazing at an Egyptian whip holder on an under construction pyramid...

    Favorites? Do you mean Divine Feminine?

    I don't have any favorite members here, that feels inappropriate to me. My favorite thread is the Six Degrees of Separation thread. It's fascinating and helps me remain humble 'cause I haven't even dreamed of creating such a thread.

    I think perhaps I should read the Seth material. I've more read/heard about it than reading it myself other than parts.

    I've always believed in reincarnation and have never tried to figure out who/what I was in past lives. I've always felt it would be a distraction from who/what I am now.

    I scout out the future in dreams (not saying I know what's coming) and I suspect some of that may be other possible lives. Being unbound by space and time in dreams would allow seeing past lives as well, something I may very well have done.

    Memories of that sort of thing usually become like instincts. I know what to do when the time comes even though I don't specifically recall what I've seen.

    Hi, where is the thread regards the Seth material topic?

    Another note, my opinion on the subject of past lives is that it is essentially quite a private thing. I have had a few insights, and a few outsights, confirmations from readers regards a few lives. But we are in dangerous territories in terms of the reactions of others when we might share such things. I do not see the point of telling people of past identities. We see the damage that David Wilcock done for himself.

    And also people seem to like to tell of the top % of their lives, not of the as important ones where they were not heroes, maybe not even villains.
    I do believe that there is every chance that some of you here have known me in a past life and vicer verser. It just makes sense. I have had past life healings, 2 lifetimes of which I did not do very nice things to people and had karmic vengeful entities following me, seeking chances to exact their bad luck. In many cases, a past life healing is a matter of finding out the life and events which need correction, and having that spiritual entity called to you in order for you to make an attempt at sincere reconcile. Such a thing requires assistance from a good medium. Experiencing this was very profound to me, and it also made me aware of another reason why we should try not to end the day with ill feelings about or with people.

    Once upon a time, ones sword was their spine, sharpness but needed only on reflection, length was wisdom and within is calm uncontrolled.
    Twas no matter if gender held firm or sheathed BUT a woman would listen.
    And now, ritual words pierce, shape, asking reaction, what appears ?

    The S-word

    The pen is mightier than the sword
    The anagram says it again. But the ear and the eye must partake. The magic triangle formed by the eye, the hand, and the heart.

    I have spent a lifetime so far, seeing that a good amount of men fear speech, cannot listen to words which threaten their sense of strength. The physical human genders, confused at roles compared to the flora and fauna.
    What should we label this though? An abomination? How did this imbalance become, if it is indeed unnatural?
    So many are ready to say it is unnatural. I am undecided, for reasons which have so many contrasting examples.
    At which time period do we benchmark what is and what was? As the vessel of the feminine becomes spread through political concept, we can equally inherit imbalance. Example, political correctness, the 'saving' of lives as a short focussed reaction which in the long game, causes MORE injustices than if things were left be.
    That is if nurturing includes stealing away the lessons of others because one is over come by compassion. That fine line between service and servitude where the act of helping and caring can be about the pain and guilt of the helper, not the needs of that which appears helpless.
