Am I In My Head...

...or am I in yours? Before you think this is totally nuts, let me tell you what happens, and this has gone on for most of my life.

Have you ever been thinking about a song, and someone near by starts humming, singing or whistling that same song? So, who had the "thought" about the song first? You or the other person? My question is, did you think about it first and you "broadcast" the song into someone else's mind? Or was that person thinking about the song first and you picked up on it?

This happens to me on a regular basis, maybe not daily, but at least weekly. I will be thinking about something, then the person I am talking to or sitting near by will start talking about the thing I was thinking about, I wonder if I picked up on something they were thinking about, or did they just pick up on what I was thinking?

I have a friend who knows about my ability to do this and is somewhat afraid of it, not really afraid, but I feel like he is concerned that he will not be able to hide anything from me. I understand his concern, our thoughts are one of the most private things we have, how potentially uncomfortable would it be if all of our private thoughts and feelings were no longer private? To any of my friends reading this, if you have to ask "is this me she is talking about?" then it's not you... You know who you are. ;) This relates to a very specific conversation about hugs.

Here are my thoughts, no pun intended, we all float in a sea of our own thoughts, thoughts are nothing more than electrical impulses in our brains, I believe we work like 2 way radios, we send and receive signals/thoughts. Once you meet a person, you tune in to each others' frequencies. As you get to know that person better, you are more able to tune in. Just like anything else, some people are better at doing this (sending and receiving) than other people. I think that married couples, long time work partners, close family members and such have this very close connection and can sense how the other is feeling, can read each other's minds, can finish each other's sentences.

I just have to wonder, when floating in the sea of thoughts in our daily lives, you assume that 100% of those thoughts are yours and yours alone, I wonder how much is actually bleed over from other people? And consequently, how much of our thoughts are bleeding over to other people?

What are your thoughts?


  1. very curious post, i have a lot of experiences where i'm either reading, listening to music or the tv, even people talking and either i say a word at exactly the same time as i hear the same word or vice versa.
    so for example, i'm having a conversation and i'll say the word "clock" and hear the same word exactly as i say it or right after. i always thought it was weird.

  2. Yeah, that happens to me all the time, the funny thing is it has been happening to my hubby, A LOT lately! He is really noticing it too, he is very skeptical about these sorts of things too. I have been wondering how to gently bring him toward my beliefs, this may be how it happens. :)

  3. Since you are the one that seems to be so in tune with the psychic realm, it is probably you picking up on their thoughts. Although that isn't to say they couldn't pick up on yours, but if you are the one most in tune with it, then it is probably you picking up on their thoughts.

    And I would agree that we do broadcast our thoughts...most people just don't know how to sense it. Reality to us is shaped in our minds - our eyes don't really see, they just transmit light signals to the brain; our ears don't really hear, they just transmit sound waves to our brain. Although our surroundings do indeed exist, how we percieve them is all in our mind. Many of the things we consider to be solid are merely just atoms packed together tightly...it's not really "solid". So to do our minds broadcast without many of us realizing it. Few people are able to pick up those broadcasts, but there are some that do.

  4. Jeff, you are right, our eyes and ears are merely collectors of data, it's our brains that interpret that data and make sense of it...

    I'll be exploring this more. Thanks!

  5. Yes, thoughts are powerful. You are thought not to say to kids, "get down your going to fall". You watch what you say just in case you have the power to make things happen. People are so conditioned to think. Think in what is known and not what is possible. On the other hand some people expect things to be more than what is physical. I am in awe of those people.

  6. Steve, yes, thoughts are very powerful, the one I have to constantly watch myself on is when I am going down the stairs going out of the skycastle, I think that if I fall, it will hurt, I have to stop myself from having that thought, that's the last thing I want to do! Emergency room visits are expensive! I need to change that thought pattern, short circuit it before it even has a chance to pop into my head.
