Fear Of Projecting Bad Vibes Onto Others

 

I have a cautionary tale. 5 years ago I went to a live show by a well-known British "mentalist". One of the things he did was get people to (seemingly) read each others' minds: he'd hypnotize them, then get one of them to touch the other's temples and guess what they were thinking.

Something that struck me was that he would say to them, "Even if you don't believe in telepathy, I want you just to imagine that you believe in it for now." From this I hypothesized that maybe all you needed in order to experience telepathy was to believe you could do it, and that the easiest way to believe something is to persuade yourself of it in a trance.

Afterwards, I started experimenting with self-hypnosis by rubbing my temples. I was able to get into a trance easily, and I then arrogantly decided to experiment with thought projection. I'd get in a trance, then try to make drivers behind me pull back if they were too close. It always seemed to work.

After a while of messing with trance states I started to get AWFUL panic attacks, so I stop doing it.

A few months passed, and being of a rather pessimistic turn of mind I found myself starting to think: what if I could project hostile thoughts at people, and make them hate me, and couldn't control those thoughts?

That's what happened. At work, I ended up having to move to an isolated desk, because I'd get these angry thoughts towards people sitting near me, and I could swear they felt it, because within seconds of the thoughts taking hold, they'd shield their faces or get up or fidget, looking extremely annoyed and uncomfortable. I became very isolated, and found it virtually impossible to join in conversations because of this obsession. I was aware that no one wanted to be anywhere near me.

I'm currently unemployed, so the problem is less pressing, but I think it illustrates the adage that we should be careful what we wish for.

Most people, obviously, think I'm imagining it all. I would be convinced of this if just once, I could think these hostile thoughts without the other person acting very uncomfortable: but I swear, it happens every time, within seconds if not less. I have established some techniques for controlling my thoughts, such as breathing steadily and meditating, but these only go so far.

I know this is an old story, but it is the first I've come across that gives terms to what I feel I'm doing/ is happening to me: thought projection. Thanks for sharing, and thanks to everyone for their advice.

There is a wiccan belief similiar to what your going through. Your giving the people your feeling hostile towards a phsycic attack. You do this by accidentaly (or on pupose) projecting negative feelings. Of course you can't help but feel angry and negative once in a while, so you can say this after you do:
No harmful power, turn it to good.
There are other things you can say, but they have more of a wiccan reference and I don't know whether your christian or not.
No one blames you for wanting to hurt your peers, I do all the time.
Blessed be,
Nicky

PS Rubbing the temples: this is something that the mentalist got people to do to each other before they read each others' minds.

I wasn't particularly sceptical about telepathy. I had an open mind about it; otherwise, I wouldn't have been so fascinated by the mentalist's show.

The mentalist makes out that what he does is all a trick, but I am quite observant, and watching what he did, I felt sure there was more to it than he claimed. I was curious.

It may all be linked with a past life - who knows? - but in this instance I was just putting two and two together, and I turned out to be right.

I have always been subject to feelings of guilt and anxiety, and maybe this is something to do with past lives, or maybe it's genetic (my parents are both anxious), or maybe it's both.

Thanks,

F

"what if I could project hostile thoughts at people, and make them hate me, and couldn't control those thoughts?"

This thought. The experiments you made on it.

"I started experimenting with self-hypnosis by rubbing my temples. I was able to get into a trance easily, and I then arrogantly decided to experiment with thought projection."

How did you make this? Just popped up in your mind? Didn't you question why have you entered in trance easily and why who had the suggestion to just project your thoughts, when previously you were sceptic?

"After a while of messing with trance states I started to get AWFUL panic attacks, so I stop doing it."

Why did you have panic attacks? Maybe because you already had the bad experience. And now you don't want to harm anyone no more. And that brings me to your other thought:

"what if I could project hostile thoughts at people"

For me it is logical if something had already happened to you. Just make sure you don't use it for the bad purposes, it already damaged you enough.

Of course, this is only an hypotheses, only you know what have happened.

Saikatanas: I'm afraid you are being a little cryptic. I did WHAT in a past life?

Sorry about this, sometimes I can be carried away by people stories, they always tell me something that is not there.

Past life. You have done it in a past life. That is what I meant before. The incident in your teenage life is a reflect of it.
Just try to remember.

Saikatanas: What do you mean when you say I "did that before". Did what?

I have had problems in the past with obsessive-compulsive disorder, and also had fairly bad experiences when I was a teenager that led me to distrust people (I don't mean REALLY bad, just fairly bad).

Thanks for the comments. I wasn't really asking for help, I just thought I'd put in my twopence worth.

After reading a little more I sensed that You did that before. Your subconscious wants you to remember.

Man, forget about those nasty thoughts... Or better, try to understand why you have them. Once you eliminate the roots of it you will be relieved. I am only saying this, because even if you just planned to do it conscientiously, maybe there is something behind that gave you that thought.

Remember, think about others thinking the best of you. You don't deserve to be treated like garbage because of experiences. Try to experience the other way around. For happiness!
