Sensitivity to emotions, thought, mood, shadow, seeing things are nothing new to me. What happened this year and what is new is that I experienced something from someone else who has an incredibly intense expression of compassion and caring.
The first time it happened I happened to be driving down this person's street at night and looked over at her house. She is a friend of mine. She was in a front, upper lighted room watching a big screen TV with her back to me. So? Well, the energy, light and happiness emanating from her was amazing. It filled the whole neighborhood. I was wondering what in the world could make anyone so happy? I didn't want to keep going, I wanted to stay and go in and hug her, to be enveloped even more so in this substance I had never felt before. That was probably six months ago.
Then the other day I stopped in to see her at her office and she wasn't in, so I was talking with a colleague of hers. We wrapped up our conversation and I was backing out the door when she comes barreling down the side walk and in seconds I was wrapped or rather infused with this most incredible feeling of being cared for I'd ever felt in my life. It was breathtaking, I could hardly concentrate on what she was saying. After I left I was so thrown.
I talked to her about it today and she told me that a long time ago, she realized she had been given this gift of caring/compassion and she has come to accept it. She wasn't at all surprised by what I said. I would like to find out more about what it feels on her end to have this "super power." Does she have to control it, does it apply to everyone, does she ever get drained or is it empowering?
These two instances made feel connected again to my real inner self that can connect with these not every day experiences, but what used to be more common in my life. What for some reason has been missing.
