Can you read someones mood/energy?
My roommate and I got into an argument about “energy”. He said that when someone is an a bad mood they put out bad “energy” and that it is possible to sense this. I said “Duh, It is easy to tell if someone is in a bad mood by the tone in their voice, or their facial expression, or their physical mannerisms ect. But that is the only way.”
So I went on, “If what you’re saying is true it should be possible to sense someone’s mood with absolutely NO physical contact. That means that you should be able to stand next to them and without seeing them, hearing them, or touching them, determine their mood.”
After I put it like this my roommate seemed less sure. What do you guys think? Can you read people’s energy or vibes without interacting with them in anyway?

Yes you can read someone’s energy. But it’s very different sort of translation depending how you receive the energy. They’ll be things you may consider dark. Or bad that someone might just think is “Intense” because people have different thresholds and it can be relative to what your experiences with energy is.
You can get really deep into this. There is a connection with diet, and or if you may choose to go further into veganism, that you will feel more subtle energies and even be hypersensitive to reading things you never even felt before.
Kind of like you know depending what mood your in you are more or less receptive to certain things because of your energy level. I.E being sleepy versus you just had a crazy work out. It can fluctuate. But you can train yourself to maintain certain energy even just being more aware.
Its almost like mind reading.. which is why I may hesitate to talk about it. Views on things like that arent always very open, but I know they are real from absolute personal experience. Im getting to the point now that I am beginning to actually see flashes of their auras. Especially in anger. I can sense the energy of strangers in the room, which are usually confirmed by the slightest gestures.. practice by seeing people objectively, putting yourself totally “in their shoes”. Treat your mind almost as a blank slate, keeping basic human understanding at the forefront, forget your subjective views and instead imagine another’s. Its great for expanding ideas in any case. Whether you are connected with energy or not.
@lytning91, I agree with you sir. I too have thought I was able to “sense someone’s energy” But after my thought experiment I have to say it was based on all physical cues, not some 9th sense for energy like you say.
It seems someone could easily set up an experiment to test this. I would be surprised if it hasn’t been done, but I’m having a hard time finding anything. It would be interesting to see the results.
@bongodeburrito, very interesting theory, el duderino (:
ive given this type of phenomena thought before, but I guess never from a quantum viewpoint. I wonder just how connected we all are. If personal relationships yeild stronger results, (that is, if we could actually measure it) then what do we make of the not so personal?
This has opened up a lot of ideas for me, thank you
I have found with people i am really close to that sometimes they can be feel so strongly that i pick up on it without physical cues. I have picked up on my partners mood whilst we have been focused on different things and not looking or speaking to each other and sometimes that can rub off onto me and change my mood.
It doesn’t happen often, i think most of the time we pick up on physical cues without even knowing we are doing it.
A room or crowd can give off a vibe. I have personally experienced this, sometimes it helps tell the future if you listen closely enough. I know that sounded weird but I have had this happen to me and others who were there too.
We were all at a party and after a few hours of chilling, me and a few friends were sitting outside talking and gradually each felt this distinct “vibe” or “energy”, and it was not a good one. We each had an inkling that we should leave because of the vibe but decided to say fuck it and smoke some more bowls. After about 30minutes the cops showed up and we ended up having to sprint out the back door and hide for two hours in the forest nearby. Also, before the party started I remember seeing a cop and both my friend and I got a bad vibe from it and thought maybe cops would come that night.
Thoughts seem to create reality. I have been testing this out lately…you all should too.
I also have a thread on this: http://www.highexistence.com/topic/vibes-2/
I think it’s possible. Have you ever walked into a room after an argument between two people? To me it feels dense and heavy. I usually don’t have to see them or hear them fight to know that something happened. But on the other hand, that could be residual energy from the actions and not necessarily being emitted by them at the present moment… As in, you wouldn’t have to stand next to them to feel it.
But I get this sensation in the hallways at my school, walking past people I can feel a magnetic pull or push as others walk past. It’s a little out there, but I can definitely sense it. However, I can’t fully determine what mood or emotion they have, only whether or not it is strong or weak, pushing, pulling, or stagnant. Or I’m just bonkers, that’s most likely a better explanation.
Rub your hands together really fast and hold them close together. Or run as fast as you can as hard as you can. Then try to sit still and be really at rest. When you feel your blood moving around and your breathing you might find certain kind of energetic feelings travelling throughout your body. Those are the simple things you could try. Or have somebody else do this and then you sit quietly as you can next to them with your eyes closed?
Not sure what you mean by the 9th sense. But I’d say try meditating more and you will surely get there.
@cosmicplur, According to a lot of philosophies, we’re all just one universal conscious. Some parts of it may just be more connected to others, like personal relationships. I dont know exactly what it is or how to prove it, I just know I’ve experienced it and that’s proof enough for me.
Even if you were to close your eyes and not see them..what is the point of deciding whether you can’t “sense their energy”. If you don’t perceive…the communication link is broken..thus no energy is being perceived ….since your open link..is now closed.
If you don’t allow the energy to be sensed and re-constructed in the mind, I feel that it would have no affect on your mental state.
@fyrirrek, 9th sense was a bit of a joke. Meaning that since I’m not using my 5 senses, sight, hearing, taste, touch or smell to determine someone’s mood I must need some other “9th sense” to do so. I don’t know how you would use your sense of taste or smell to determine someone’s mood but thats besides the point. Sight and hearing are the main senses we use to determine someone’s mood, ie their posture, or tone of their voice. If your not using these 5 senses to determines someone’s mood then how can you? Unless somehow you can use you sense of touch and somehow feel the brain waves a person emits and than be able to translate these minute, subatomic vibrations into how they feel. I think that that is impossible.
@bongodeburrito, my hope is that it is all connected evenly, yes you may feel things stronger with those close to you, for obvious reasons, but I believe you can have the same connection with strangers of a totally different world view, its just a matter of truely knowing yourself. We are all one, just different takes on the same thing. When we see ourselves in others, our higher self and theirs are very much the same essence. We hide it with our egos, but those with a keen eye can see through any mask.
I can usually feel vibes of people, their energy, posotive or negative, flows around them and the people around them. This is easier with people i know. The five senses help alot with detecting what a person is feeling and how their mood is. I can read it in there movements, facial expressions, and overall way they react.
Of course we can read energies of other people. Your essentially speaking of communication. Although it isn’t verbal it is still language. Much like the concept of mirror neurons, they can mimic the processes of another through observation, but are not limited to mimicking, neurons can also choose to ignore or simply let be.
Maybe its possible to determine the way they enter the room? Does that count?
Otherwise, if you had all your senses closed in a double blind study, I would not say that it is not possible. That’s really the only way you could do that experiment without that person receiving any clues via their senses touch, smell, sound etc.
We can’t count out any sense that may be indeed super strong where one could indicate the mood. (Maybe supersmell like a dog can detect sweat indicating nervousness) etc
The point I was making was that, that person cannot even be in the same room, since there are too many indicators that describe that persons mood without it being labeled as metaphysical.
