We all had that moment when someone looks into our eyes deeply and you feel “sh**! this person is “seeing” and learning about me more than what should be!”. So, what does happen when we look into someone’s eyes and we somehow get everything on that person’s head(mind)? Is there some explanation for this(not the mushy it’s the soul..period) ? Does long term gazing (looking into each others eyes) develop anything between two people(like some sort of telekinesis or ESP)? Note that this is not in the case of romance only but also in friendships..etc. What do you think? (-:
I remember playing around with this when I was young with a friend. We had cards with shapes on them and one would hold a card and try to project the image to the other while the other one tries to psychically guess the card. Granted there were only a few shapes to pick so our odds of guessing were probably pretty good, but there were a few instances where it was weird.
For one I was projecting a triangle to my friend, he had his eyes closed and I was trying to imagine the shape on his forehead. He then said triangle and right after said he felt his forehead burning and I started to laugh and then proceeded to tell him I was imagining a triangle on his forehead. Could of been a coincidence, but when your young you think it was an awesome breakthrough lol.
Eyes wear the scars of a lifetime. Most evident to me are people who have, at some point, hit rock bottom. Whether they are battle hardened war veterans or recovered junkies, they see the world differently and it shows in their eyes. They happen to be really solid individuals too, really nice people, and very capable.
People who try to deceive usually fail when it comes to the gaze. This applies not only to intent deception, but also self deception.
People always look away when they are scared. Always.
You’ll be surprised how eyes don’t play a big role when people see your succession of words. :) It’s okay to stare, because everyone is going to imagine the future “I didn’t give a fuck!” circumstance, while in actuality, it was completely different, and you were just a passive idiot being sensitive about your own perception of how you look like, and usually inventing an interesting past for your own boring life.
@jordan, That applies to anything. I sometimes try this on purpose just to see all of the crazy things my brain/consciousness/whatever it is comes up with. Do you think this could be not necessarily good for my mental health if I were to continue doing this?
@jordan, Oh haha okay well cool. Thanks man!
Edit: Usually when I meditate I close my eyes and rarely get any sweet results besides being incredibly relaxed. When I keep them open and just stare at things and try to get them to morph it’s probably one of the coolest things I do on my spare time haha. Should I start meditating with my eyes open then?
@jordan, I’ve done that too much! It’s especially weird if you stare at someone while in a dark room after your eyes have adjusted just enough to see shapes and outlines. That’s always when my mind comes up with the craziest and strangest faces.
Yes, telepathy is real, but you and the other person have to be at a certain level of awareness (and similarity of disposition) for it to work. And really, it is nothing more than both of you coming to the same conclusions, somewhat simultaneously (or one of you suggesting to the other the conclusion). Remember, communication is 90% nonverbal
When you look into someone else’s eyes who you really connect with, you are reminded that they are also human and present. It’s soooo beautiful!
I think it’s hard to look people in the eye, either if I’m talking to them or not. Don’t you think it takes some effort? And others many times avoid it and look away after a few seconds. Why do you think that is? I think we feel vulnerable when someone looks straight into our eyes. It’s incredibly powerful, it is like touching without really having physical contact. Strangers feel just as uncomfortable when they have direct eye contact and when they have close physical contact (for example in the subway). I don’t feel like that so much, I like to connect with people, but I can feel others don’t.
It is touching, definitely.
Either they feel uncomfortable because of you, or because of themselves. Somehow your energies are clashing. It’s no judgment call on you, necessarily.
It IS touching.
It is because it reminds us that we are more than the scripts we read, we’re more than the roles we play – we’re autonomous actors, each of us is an individual, and when we look each other in the eyes we see each other for the people we are. For some people, they are ashamed and so they look away. That says something about how they feel about themselves. If you are proud of who you are you should not be afraid of looking anyone in the eyes, including Gandhi or Jesus Christ or Cee Lo Green.
Yeah, also, it’s overwhelming. Getting the feel of who someone truly is, and in a way, seeing yourself in them and understanding (usually without even being aware of it) that you are one. It’s intense, maybe that’s also why it’s hard to hold the gaze.
There is an extra sensory perception that is unrelated to vision, in the sense that hearing is unrelated to seeing. But like all senses, it can be complimented by the other senses. Your sight can be used as a tool to focus on what is beyond the surface of another person. This is not specific to looking into their eyes, I personally have focused on the forehead to do this.
The results of a bond like this can vary. Because it is a sub-conscious sense (not concious or un-conscious) it will manifest in sub-conscious ways. This could solidify a relationship or even destroy it. What ever it does is a selection your sub-consciousness deems correct based on the way you are, the information it has at the time.
I am reasonably well versed in both objective scientific study into it and my own personal experimentation with it, but I am by no means an expert. We all have a measure of psychic ability, enough to begin with basics, but I have not dabbled in it for a long time. It is like a muscle, you begin small and build it up but it takes regular use to maintain it.
My idea to anyone who is interested in experimenting, building a base, strengthening and maintaining E.S.P abilities is to begin with a moth. Moths have a high em frequency, high in the sense it is easy to tune into with the human ESP, and you can detect its “buzz”. This allows you to become familiar with the type of sense you are trying to initiate.
@Uza – It is generally difficult to sustain eye contact with someone…unless you have a pre-established and amicable relationship with them. Looking into another animals eyes is predominantly a sign of aggression (at least the mammals that I am familiar with). If you are charged by a bear that is showing defensive aggression (i.e. protecting it’s cubs, territory, etc) the last thing you want to do is make eye contact. It will convince it that you are a real threat instead of a perceived threat. It’s all about body language and the eyes are an important element of that body.
Having said that, as @Mime says, the eyes don’t deceive and that is why in some cultures it is considered to be rude not to look at someone in the eyes when you are shaking hands/introduced with them.
So it depends. If you sustain eye contact with a stranger it is a sign of aggression, and breaking eye contact is a sign of submission…and then of course there is some middle ground.
But like I said before, the eyes tell a story too. Genuine and well intentioned individuals have “kind” eyes and are very easy to engage with. Troubled and deceitful individuals have empty eyes and are to be avoided.
EDIT: When you are judging someone, they can see it in your eyes. I have saved myself some grief by not judging people. I have gone from “faceless victim” to “good guy” in a matter of seconds, and you know when it happens by the change in their eyes.
EDIT2: I believe myself to be a good judge of character, not just making a judgement and then reinforcing it. I believe it is my ability to understand what peoples eyes are telling me. It doesn’t matter if they are a junkie or a suit, I am not fooled.
