What are emotions/vibes?
Emotions are just energy in motion. The emotions that an individual is experiencing gives off a specific “vibe”, which is really just a specific vibration of energy. When we say that someone gives you bad “vibes”, we take this to mean that they are giving off a “bad energy”, probably because they are experiencing a heavy “negative” emotion (such as anger, self-loathing or aggression). Most people can sense when a person is giving off bad vibes because it’s a natural innate human ability, and it’s purpose is to protect us from people who might harm us.
Most people don’t realize that being able to read someone’s vibes like this is actually a psychic ability. The mainstream connotation of a psychic ability is that of some kind of fake, pseudoscience nonsense, but the truth is that we use our psychic abilities everyday to a certain extent, without even realizing it. Some people are more aware of the situations when they use their psychic abilities, and are thus able to develop this skill more. So some people are better at reading someone’s energy (vibe) than others, just because they recognize their ability to do so, and practice it.
Let’s take this a notch up and talk about telepathy. Telepathy is just the next step above being able to read someone’s vibes and knowing how their feeling. Once you are able to read the general vibes (such as happy, sad, angry, ect.), you can get better at detecting more subtle emotions, such as jealousy, uncertainty, defensiveness, ect.
One who has developed their ability to read very subtle emotions has actually developed the ability to “read someone’s mind” in the sense that they can understand someone’s emotional state very precisely. You can get infinitely better at your skill to read vibes, to the point where you can read and understand a person’s emotional state completely without them having to say a word. When two people do this to each other, we have telepathy.
To sum things up, when you are able to sense how a person is feeling, you are tapping into a natural human psychic ability. We should recognize that we all have these abilities, and that it’s possible to develop these skills if we choose to.
Different types of psychic abilities when reading vibes
Different people can read, or understand energy/vibes in different ways. That’s because there are many different psychic abilities. When reading someone’s vibes, the psychic abilities that come to mind are claircognizance, clairsentience and clairvoyance.
It’s possible that there are other psychic abilities that people use to read other peoples’ energy, but I don’t have much knowledge about other psychic abilities. The psychic ability that an individual uses will depend on the person, in the same way that some people are naturally better at sports, and other people are naturally better at arts. We all have differing levels of skill in our psychic abilities, but everyone has all the psychic abilities to some degree.
Claircognizance means ‘clear knowing’, and it’s the ability to intuitively understand and know. When I meet a new person, I can, to a certain extent, read their vibe, the way they communicate, ect. and from this, I intuitively understand about what kind of person they are, the things they struggle with in life, their potential insecurities, and so forth. This is because I’m seeing things in this person that are present in myself, or things I have struggled with, or currently struggle with. And because I have done a lot work to develop my own self-awareness, I intuitively understand when other people share similar insecurities, fears, hopes, desires, ect. just from their vibe.
Clairsentience means ‘clear feeling’, which is the ability to feel energy. This is when you see a person, and you can actually feel their vibes, you can feel how they’re feeling (empathy), ect. This psychic ability is evident in your everyday life when you hang out with someone who’s depressed, and they make you feel kind of depressed too. It’s because you are feeling their energy and it’s taking a toll on your own energy. This ability is also why it feels so good to be around very energetic, positive people. It’s because we are feeling their energy, and we are kind of feeding off of it in a positive way.
Clairvoyance means ‘clear seeing’, and it’s the ability to see energy. Some people have the ability to see someone’s aura, which is just the magnetic energy that emanates from and surrounds a person. You can actually take a photograph of someone’s vibes, or aura, with a photography technique called Kirlian photography. I believe this technique is able to capture in color, the magnetic fields surrounding a living being. Google it if you need a scientific explanation of how it works. Different moods will change the color of your aura, so someone with this ability will be able to see how you feel by looking at the color, size, shape of your aura. This is perhaps one of those psychic abilities that has a strange connotation in mainstream consciousness, probably because it’s a more difficult psychic ability to tap into in daily life.
The thing about psychic abilities is that they have such a strange perception in mainstream society. This is because they are very misunderstood as something that only “crazy people” can tap into, when in reality, we’re all experiencing our own psychic abilities on a daily basis. Are you a “crazy person” because you’re able to sense when your best friend is feeling down? No, you are just being a normal human being, using your extra senses just as naturally as you use your physical senses. There is nothing “strange” or “crazy” about these abilities. We all need to wake up and realize that we’re repressing such a natural part of ourselves, which can be used for so much good in this world.
