Telepathy is the the term used to refer to the ability to transmit and receive information from another being by other means than known sensory communication i.e., verbal or physical interaction. Whilst this is usually considered to be a form of thought transference, it can range from simple emotions or feelings emanating from animals, to concepts, words and sentences produced by human beings.
There are various degrees of telepathy, starting with empathy which is the ability to feel the emotions of others and understand that emotion, sometimes to the extent that it feels like your own, however, Empaths do not always progress to becoming Telepathic, and Telepaths do not always feel empathy with animals, people or the world around them, both may prefer to shut out the mental or sensory noise except when it is absolutely necessary.
The most common occurrence of telepathy may be exhibited by close friends or family members, especially or other children of multiple birth who even or especially when separated and raised by different families in locations miles apart, will exhibit unexplained knowledge of their sibling or when reunited after years without prior meeting, have similar hair styles and dress code or experience the same emotions, stress and concerns at the same time as their sibling even when they have no knowledge of their existence.
Despite many scientific tests and attempts to debunk Telepathy, there is no doubt that some people are capable of knowing our thoughts when directed to focus on an individual, even when not present in the room. This mind to mind communication is difficult to prove consistently to the satisfaction of the regular scientific community.
In the parapsychology world, telepathy is considered to be a potential example of psychic ability and Zenner Cards became a popular method of testing followed by the Ganzfeld experiment but in psychiatry telepathy is considered to be a symptom of psychosis!
The following videos include demonstration, discussion and methods of testing for telepathy.
Xenoglossy : Xenoglossie or Xenoglossia are the terms used to describe the ability shown by a child or individual who can write or speak a language they could not have learnt by natural means. In many cases Xenoglossy is referred to as a paranormal phenomena but it is also one that can manifest itself after the individual has experienced head trauma like a car accident and x-rays of these individuals brains have exhibited neural pathways being used that may not have been used prior to the accident.
There are ongoing studies into this phenomena and it is certainly one that is worth further investigation although I doubt anyone would want to experience a major head trauma even if the compensation was the gift of a new language or ability!
The following videos on Xenoglossy include discussion, documentaries, interviews and demonstrations.
In the western world we have become used to visiting a doctor for diagnosis and treatment of our ailments, in other cultures people have other methods of healing. These are referred to as Alternative or Complimentary medicines or treatments although to the country and people who invented and use them on a regular basis, they are considered mainstream.
Many of these treatments and potions that were common in times before doctors and chemical pills have been proven over time or evolved and become popular again like acupuncture, acupressure, chiropractic, herbal medicine, homeopathy, massage and reflexology which may be offered alongside or instead of more traditional forms of treatment. These may be referred to as Complimentary Medicines or Therapies as until recently some medical practitioners were able to prescribe or suggest these treatments on the NHS.
Some of these treatments like herbal medicine and homeopathy have been critisized by the mainstream medical profession as having no evidence that they work and due to austerity measures and lack of funding are due to be banned from being offered to patients.
Alternative treatments range from aromatherapy, Ayurveda, Chinese, healing, quantum touch, reiki, sound healing to name a few, which whilst most may be used alongside modern medication, without adverse reactions, are rarely recognized or prescribed by medical practitioners and are not available on the NHS.
There are also many more controversial medicines and therapies that whilst still used/practiced in other countries, are rejected by the majority and in some countries banned like the use of rhino horn which is the cause of many species becoming endangered due to poachers.
The reality is that what works for some, will not work for others, even traditional treatments can fail to produce the expected results and in some cases, it is better to use tried and tested alternatives for minor ailments like rest combined with hot lemon and honey for a cold or aloe vera for a bruise that to waste the GP’s time.
There are long running debates on the validity of alternative and complementary medicines which is understandable when the patient has a serious illness requiring medical or surgical treatment, but when you realise that some chemical tablets prescribed by the pharma industry started out as ordinary plants, friendly bacteria or mould (like penicillin) and that new medications are being discovered, distilled and tested (like CBD Oil or Cannabis Oil) for the successful treatment of some cancers and use in pain relief then it is hardly surprising that people turn to alternative treatments.
As well as the videos provided here, take time to read the posts or watch the health related videos available and always check with your doctor before trying any alternative medicine or treatment, especially if you have known allergies or are taking standard medication as some herbal and Chinese medicines may cause an adverse reaction when taken in combination with tablets.
