Have you ever experienced telepathy — communicating directly between minds — with someone?
A surprise, for me, was discovering that telepathy doesn’t just involve thoughts; it involves emotions as well. As someone who loves intellectual pursuits, I tend to focus more on thinking than on feeling in my daily life. But after learning how closely connected thoughts and feelings are in telepathy, I’m realizing that every thought I have actually does reflect an emotion of some kind (even when I’m not consciously aware of it).
So when I communicate with others now, I try to think not just about what I’m saying, but how I’m saying it — since thoughts and feelings can’t really be separated, and both are equally important in how people receive messages. In fact, often people won’t even pay attention to what others say if the messages aren’t communicated with positive feelings. What people tend to remember most, as well, are good emotional experiences.
What’s an important message that you hope to give someone in your life soon? How can you communicate it to them in a way that makes them feel loved?
