Reverse Telepathy?
Okay, I have a basic grasp on what telepathy is, reading another's thoughts. Right? Well, I have this issue with sending MY thoughts to other people. Is it some kind of reverse telepathy? I do it sometimes to random strangers, they will answer questions I thought but didn't ask, and very odd ones that would not be suggested by the enviroment or what is directly in front of me, for example: I was looking at incense in a mall, talking with another customer briefly before the salesperson came over to ask if they could help me. I was thinking about my roommate's boyfriend and some suspicious things that had happened, I thought he was cheating on her. That was when the employee came over. Then he said, "Well, if he's doing all that, then yeah, the bastard's probably cheating on her." Then he said, "But I can't help with that, so is there anything else?" I'm sure I looked really surprised cause he asked if I had been talking to him when I asked about the boyfriend. I don't remember what I said in reply, but that's just one of many incidents, though not all so dramatic that make me think I'm sharting my thoughts with people as well as reading theirs. (Because I also answer questions that weren't asked and usually know what my roommates/fiance/mother/etc want or are thinking) What is this called? And is there anyway to stop broadcasting this?
(Just a note, since I started controlling my energy more it's happened less, but still happens.)

Now are thoughts thou shalt not banish--
Now are visions ne'er to vanish;
from thy spirit they shall pass
No more-- like dew-drops from from the grass.

Re: Reverse Telepathy?
Given that, theoretically speaking, empathy operates by a deeper sense and understanding of the energy put out by other people, it could be concluded that people translate and project a bit of their thoughts and feelings into the energy surrounding them.

If you happen to project more clearly your thoughts and feelings into the energy around you, an individual more empathic than the norm might be able to pick up on it more clearly than you might have expected and cause this phenomenon.

I would consider it and test the theory a bit more, before you can figure how to stop/control it. That example seems a bit more than coincidence, I would practice it and document anymore of these, where and when they occur as well as other miscellaneous facts such as any medications or food intake, stress level, your energy level, so on and so forth. See if we can establish a trend somewhere.

Re: Reverse Telepathy?
telepathy is strong in my family, we made a couple of experiments when i was small, and apparently i'm a very good "sender". <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->

i know what you're talking about, very often people will do or say something i just thought about, mostly unintentionally, but not always. the best trick, however, was how i passed my latin class with little effort: our teacher, a very strict man who reminded me of a military officer (which he indeed was before becoming a teacher), called one person to the blackboard at the beginning of each class and asked them vocabulary or the translation of the stuff we had done last time. once in a while i'd study all that, then, when he was going through the list searching for his "victim", i kept thinking of my last name. 90% chance he'd pick me. trying not to be picked was harder. thinking "not me, not me!" resulted in him picking me. i had to clear all my thoughts.

as you already said, controlling your energy and shielding can help against "broadcasting" your thoughts, as well as meditation and/or techniques to "clear your mind". you could also try and willingly influence people so you'll find out what it feels like to send out stuff.

Re: Reverse Telepathy?
I agree with Terro, but I must stress the importance of very carefully conducting your research, preferraby using a double blind experiment if at all possible to make sure you don't colour your own findings.

Re: Reverse Telepathy?
Absolutely, Miniar. Experimentation when you are setting out to prove something can lead to certain oversights that skew the experiment. Keep it objective and clean to explore it.

'Hoku, I fully understand that logic there, the trick to not getting picked with an educator like that is to stare at them like you want to be picked. On a related story, a high school math teacher I had who checked homework everyday at the beginning of class once said, "hey, show of hands, who wants me to skip checking last night's homework and get on to the lesson?" He then proceeded to take note of whose hand was up and then said, "excellent, now that we know who didn't do it, on to the lesson!"

Hmm... Any ideas on how to conduct a double blind experiment, since I really don't meet that many new people or go to malls much anymore (all the different energy gives me a very bad temper, very quick) I did try last night sending a manager thoughts, which coupled with an actual need for me to be somewhere else got me moved from a job I don't have any preference for to one that I do. The chances of that happening are very little even with an actual need for me to be there. And I do know one thing that inhibits all of my abilities: any kiind of meat, most especially beef. I ate half of a taco with very little meat on it and couldn't get any energy at all. Chicken isn't as bad but I've cut that out as well. Lol for being vegetarian again.

Re: Reverse Telepathy?
In order to set up a good double blind experiment, you need controlled variables. The mall is not a controlled variable.

I'd suggest having a non-biased person (in other words, not a "friend" of yours) find and set up a number of test subjects. These test subjects would have to be on the other side of a screen or a wall so that you can not have direct contact with them, to make sure your bodylanguage has no interfering effect.
Ideally, there'll be two groups of test subjects. One group that knows that they are about to recieve a psychic suggestion and are instructed to attempt to listen to it, another that simply has been instructed to go, sit down at a table and write down a word on a piece of paper as per the instructions on the paper. (Something that has a wide array of answers such as "Think of an animal, then write down the name of that animal.")

After each person has completed their "task" they are interviewed shortly.
Comparing the results within each group and then comparing the two groups should make it clear whether you're able to send thoughts, or whether we're talking flukes/coincidences.

Re: Reverse Telepathy?
Anecdotal evidence like your experience in the mall can only do one thing, and that's flag up that there might be something worth investigating. That's all.

It's not good information for working out whether you have telepathic abilities for two reasons:

1) There are a lot of possible causes for the sales assistant to make that comment.

2) The range of effects (someone saying something you think they shouldn't have known) is very wide and vague and it's totally subjective whether or not you count something as a hit.

Looking at the first one - possible explanations include: you accidentally broadcast your thoughts; the sales assistant read your thoughts; you said something aloud without realising it, which he heard; he's a crazy stalker who has been monitoring you for ages; he has insane Sherlock Holmes-esque deductive abilities; you misheard what he said and later remembered it as being more profound than it was; he's a friend of a friend and that intermediary talks to him about you a lot. And probably even more.

If you want to test telepathic abilities, the basic experiment is to use cards with simple shapes on them (circle, triangle, cross, etc). You try to send the image while other people try to receive, and afterwards do a nice little statistical analysis to see if there's anything notable.

IMO this is the best test, especially for a preliminary study, because there's no room for ambiguous responses or one answer being more likely than another, etc.

Re: Reverse Telepathy?
I laughed when I read the crazy stalker one. That's possible, but highly improbable. And as for someone talking to him about me, my friends are very few, and definitely loner type, reducing that possibility. Also, the events that made me wonder that had happened only a few hours before, making it less likely that would be the case. The possibility that he read my thoughts is definitely a good one. I'd like to try the card experiment, and I'll let you know when I do. But to try and broadcast things consciously (though it worked very well when I tried it with my fiance <!-- s:twisted: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_twisted.gif" alt=":twisted:" title="Twisted Evil" /><!-- s:twisted: --> ) takes a hella energy which I don't really have to spare right now. Maybe when I can get a week with a whole day off? <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

It's also possible, but improbable, that either he or you has awesome psychic powers that manifested in this manner. That's exactly why it's a mistake to go for the most interesting/fun/woo-woo (and I mean that in the best way, really) option, when there are equally likely mundane explanations.
