Stevanie B's Experience

Experience description:   

Very briefly, I was praying very hard for my higher self (or God) to help me know when I was having unkind thoughts about other people, even little ones that would escape my notice.  I spent several months in specific prayer about this. 

Then one day, the left side of my head began to tingle when I had any unkind thought about anyone...but the tingle is so incredibly powerful that I believe you should be able to measure it somehow. It feels literally like how it appears to feel when a cat's hair stands on end.  There must be a very strange vibration or energy in the area that tingles.  It is far stronger than goose bumps.  The tingle is stronger depending on how strong the unkind thought is. 

This effect has been with me now for over 10 years and without fail, my head will tingle in given situations.  I can evoke this response at will by thinking of things, or by seeing certain images. 

The reason I think this is a significant psychic event is the way that it just BAM suddenly appeared in my life after praying for it consistently for so long.  Something popped open between me and my higher self with this head tingling thing.  It is like a little inner electric fence I have, so that I will always know when I'm crossing the line into unkind and unloving areas of thought.  This was the goal I was seeking at the time I was praying for this.  I had no idea it would turn up the way it did. 

It is not as reliable, but the right side of my head does have some beginnings of similar tingles, when I think of or hear of things that are glorious or joyous.

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?    My experience has affected my life every day.  I found out that I had quite a few unkind thoughts about people, and that this wasn't serving me well at all.  Since I cannot have harsh thoughts about other people without that loud warning signal of my head tingling and literally bristling, I now know how to back away from thoughts like that.  This has changed my life enormously.
