They’ve been showing up in my life far more than usual in the past week – the uber-sensitive young people who sometimes struggle to get along smoothly in this 3D world of ours.
The normally calm, cheerful and sorted 12-year-old arrives for her lesson clutching a cuddly toy, her face set and expressionless, her answers monosyllabic and robotic. A mother of another child texts to say her daughter won’t be coming; she can’t face leaving her room today. A teenager tells me how, when stimuli and situations become too overpowering, he climbs into his bed, pulls over the covers and dons a World War II gas mask – his own home-made isolation chamber. “It’s the only thing that helps.”
Yes, all three have a tendency towards social isolation, anxiety and a certain rigidity of outlook. Many home-educated children do – that often being their principle reason, of course, for coming out of school in the first place. Why all of them together though, this week?
First week back to studies after the Easter break? Possibly… The obvious answer, though, from my perspective, is that they – collectively – have something to teach me, particularly since the ‘Version 2.0 kids’ have been on my mind recently, with regard to the ‘Deep Dimension’ I wrote about in my previous post.
So what is the lesson? I sit quietly and wait until the nub of truth that these lovely kids have so painfully been leading me towards surfaces. Something the sixteen-year-old said…
“When I’m stressed, all my emotions shut down completely.”
That was exactly what the girl had been showing me – no expression, no visible emotions. I’d seen her do this a few times before. I’d seen it in other sensitive young people, struggling to hold themselves together as they experienced sensory overload. Change their routine, their environment or their situation and this is how they cope.
As I’ve mentioned before, Seth states that our thoughts and emotions create our Earthly experience. For me, this connects closely to the Akashic Dimension proposed by Ervin Laszlo, as described in the previous post. True, Laszlo has not suggested that emotions play a part, but he does describe it as a ‘Self-Actualising Cosmos’ and points out that we can consciously link to this hidden realm by entering ‘non-ordinary’ or altered states – the hypnagogic (between waking and sleeping), meditative or trance states, for example.
I was curious.
“When you engage in remote viewing [surely as non-local a link to the Akashic Dimension as one could wish for],” I said to my friend William, “Would you say you enter any sort of altered state?”
He was quite definite that he didn’t. He merely focused on the target, and it appeared within his consciousness.
That was what I’d suspected.
Could it be that our highly sensitive Version 2.0 people, whom we know to be ‘wired’ somewhat differently to the neurotypical population, do not – as Laszlo asserted – selectively filter out the quantum-level signals containing information which “for most people… is unfamiliar, esoteric, and vaguely threatening”.
Imagine, for a moment, that each of us arrives in the physical 3D environment with a ‘filter’ which not only allows us to block out unwanted sensory stimuli (background noise or distracting sights when we need to focus) but also – once we have been culturally influenced by our society – those ‘vaguely threatening’ other-dimensional stimuli. In psychic circles, this filter is known as ‘the veil’. Small children and pets, of course, often react to sights and sounds which most of us screen out. Many of the children learn, within a few years which signals to respond to and which to ignore. The imaginary friends and shadow people, the inexplicable fragments of knowledge and so forth become less frequent as they become immersed in the cultural values of their parents and peers.
Imagine now, a population of humans who are born with a considerably less dense filter – a kitchen sieve rather than a coffee filter, for example. Not only do they resist adult intervention when told that they are ‘imagining things’, they often show unexpected and hard-to-explain skills and talents. They are, I’d suggest, able to tune consciously into a vast amount of the non-local, ‘esoteric’ information emanating from the Akashic Dimension. These are the Version 2.0 people.
There is a downside, however. They are also less able to filter out the everyday sensory information that the NT population can happily ignore. A sudden unexpected sound, a smell of perfume from a shop doorway, flashing lights or even the strobing of a florescent tube can prove unbearable to them. They pay a high price for this access to realms hidden from the majority of the population.
They become stressed. And as my young students have been showing me, that makes them shut down their emotions.
I’d argue that it’s because our emotions are what create the world of matter around us. They need ‘less world’ so they isolate themselves from the mechanism that creates it. At an intuitive – maybe even a semi-conscious – level, they recognise the power they have over their surroundings. We all possess that power, of course; we are all creators. To be constantly aware of it, though, is quite a burden to carry. What might they create, if they gave free rein to the emotions their stress could give rise to?
These words – an extract from The Words of William written when he was eleven – give some insight into the dilemma these very special young people face:
I spin and destroy
Even though I don’t want to.
I see people become terrified in an instant from seeing me.
Maybe I should ignore my feelings
And destroy everything in my path
Using my spinning powers.
