This weekend has been long and very busy. I'm feeling very lucky to be enjoying so many professional opportunities -- and feel inspired by the new invitations I'm receiving (in-spite of the fact that I'm fighting a migraine headache today; and am able to function only with the help of meds meant to diminish such nagging pest-like concerns).
One of the questions that came up in one of the metaphysical classes I taught regarded how a person can discern between spirits. The truth is -- you MUST know yourself before you can accomplish that very necessary spiritual goal.
If an individual cannot distinguish between his/her own thoughts (know what makes the self tick) that individual might not even realize all the thoughts rattling about his/her head are not actually his/her own. S/he might not realize the thoughts inside his/her head actually belong to a fellow human passing by, or the thoughts of a passing entity,
Pay attention to your own body (e.g., what are its physical reactions to any given thought). Ask yourself: "How does this particular thought make me feel?"
If a thought makes you feel uncomfortable -- it's very doubtful that the thought originated with you. More likely you're picking up on someone else's mental ponderings.
