« Topic Start: May 31, 2011, 09:52:39 am »

(This is one of those topics that doesn't really seem to fit any of the folders, so I'm putting it here.)

I'm looking for advice about an energy-related health issue.  Please bear with me while I explain.

As many of you know, I've suffered from severe migraines since childhood.  They've gotten so bad that I can no longer work.  My older daughter (I'll call her "D") has also had problems with migraines since she was a young teenager, but hers weren't too bad.  She could manage them pretty easily with the right meds. 

About 4 months ago, D was in a car accident in which her foot was broken.  She was on crutches and strong pain meds for several weeks, which forced her to withdraw from classes for the semester.  Since she had nothing better to do, she started hanging around with me for most of the day, virtually every day.  After a couple of weeks, we realized her headaches were getting worse and worse.  We tried a variety of potential remedies with no luck, so we sat down and thought about what might be triggering the increase and severity of D's headaches.  And that led us to our theory of telepathic -- or sympathetic -- migraines.  Cheesy

She and I have always had a very strong empathic link, to the point where we can practically read each other's mind.  We suspect that D is experiencing some degree of my migraines through this link.  (I know how that sounds.  But we really do think that's what is happening.)

So, what we think we need to do is to somehow block me from sending the pain to D and shield D from feeling it.  But we don't want to damage our link otherwise.

Has anyone experienced anything like this "telepathic pain"?  How did you deal with it?  Suggestions for establishing a very selective shield?  Or a very selective block?  We both work well with symbols and amulets, and with all kinds of stones and scents, so we're also very open to ideas for using tools like that to help us.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

I see what you mean.
And I won't argue that it is possible.

Only, I can't think of a quick way to use a stone or something like it for solution of the problem.
The 'usual suspects' - like Amethyst - are against the headaches, not for shielding pain away.

OTOH you could try to 'program' a piece of clear quarz crystal to filter the 'wrong' vibes out.

I have no idea, if it'll work tho'.

I was thinking about something kinda like that.  Maybe tourmalinated quartz would work -- the little threads of black tourmaline could sort of form a net.  Or something like that...

At least this is a stone that can carry a lot of power and is recommended against negative energy.
So why not?  Smiley

Does anyone else in the family get the "fallout"? And has there been any correlation between when they hit between the two of you? Like, you get a headache and 5 minutes later she picks it up or something similar.

She and I have always had a very strong empathic link, to the point where we can practically read each other's mind.  We suspect that D is experiencing some degree of my migraines through this link.  (I know how that sounds.  But we really do think that's what is happening.)

I have this rapport with my two best friends and my mom. When JV and I walk to school, I'll turn to her (or vice versa) and say "Is your right knee hurting?" and she'll say "Yes! We've got to stop doing that!". When MK and I lived nearby each other, it happened very frequently. And sometimes I can tell when my mom has injured herself because I'll get shooting pains in the area she's hurt.

Unfortunately I have no idea how to shield it. I just wanted to tell you that you're not the only person who experiences this. Smiley

And I'll be watching this thread to see the ideas put forth, to see if something might work for me and my psychic-pain-buddies. Wink

I've had this in the past, with friends that I spent all my time with and my ex-boyfriend. For me, though, I never had any other connection except shared pain, and that was generally when we were in fairy close proximity- the same town, f'ex.

Unfortunately I have no useful ideas for dealing with it, because it never occurred to me at the time that I could do something about it, and now that I have no strong real-life relationships, it hasn't happened in a while. I hope you're able to find something that helps!

My younger daughter (I'll call her "P") sometimes gets headaches that are similar to ours, but nothing like how D and I are in sync.

It's tough to really pin down correlations between D's headaches and mine that isn't easily explained by the standard phenomena of migraines.  F'ex, changes in barometric pressure trigger migraines for both of us, and we usually feel rain coming around the same time.  We both have huge photophobia issues.  We react to most meds in the same ways.  But all of that is reasonable, given the genetic aspects of migraine.   Undecided

Thanks to you all for the warm and supportive words.  If we find something that works, I'll (try to remember to) post about it.

Hmm...I'm no expert, but my initial reaction was that it's a really tricky thing to shield because of your close relationship (being mother and daughter).

Maybe there's a way to work on the chord linking you together - like installing a filter into the chord. My idea would be to visualize or represent your connection in a mental image or real object and work on that (possibly place a crystal into it as a filter). Or represent both of you and put a healing filter between. But I think it's a tricky thing.

Is there any possibility to investigate your link to each other further? Maybe through a spirit journey or someone else who can do such a journey?

I've experienced this with my mum, my fiancé and my daughter. It's especially strong with my mum. She has a bad hip and whenever I'm with her and it's painful I feel it too sometimes to the point of limping. I usually do two things to deal with it. I pray and ask for any pain that is not mine to be taken away. That usually eases things a bit. I then do some reiki for my mum to try and help her pain. Which then removes the last of mine Cheesy.

I used to experience this on a wider scale. When I practice healing I would very often feel whatever problem the person that I was working with had. I wanted to stop the pain etc so I could work better but I still wanted to have a link so that I could understand how the treatment was working for the other person, how to focus my energy and be able to suggest other avenues they may wish to explore in addition to the work with me.

For this I designed a sheild that operates like a net. It allows the impressions that I need in but holds back the pain (or distress or whatever). I found that this worked well in that situation. Maybe your daughter could try something like that? I will say that it doesn't work as well with my mum. Or my fiancé or daughter for that matter but I believe that may be because I tend to have much more relaxed sheilds when I'm around them. Maybe a crystal that she could wear or carry with her to anchor the sheild would help to keep it up even when she is more relaxed?

I really hope you find something that works for both of you.

~ Aster


I'm going to start in the first direction that kids and migraines usually go - starting with the very basic organic premises before even considering something else.

STRESS.


It might be hard as a parent to accept this as a possibility, but you might be a very strong sender, and your volume is too high for her ability to digest on a regular basis.  Especially if she is your primary receiver.

She may be getting more of a reality dump than she can handle and the headaches are her bodys way of turning it off.  A 2yo can't drive a car.

What I would do is to try to be aware of all of your stresses and mentally. (even though it's hard) take her down a step in your confidence.  Not because she can't keep up mentally, but because the mental drain is hurting her physically when pulling the energy to make up the difference.  Our filters are often based on what we feel others can handle.  You're going to have to filter with her the way you did when she was much younger

Make up the distance with more low pressure casual time with her.  Dinner dates, home movie nights, low stress interactions that have low intellectual and emotional depth, but high sillyness content.  You may have to begin with some low key quiet time to unwind her nerves from the intimate picture of your adult world, but you've got to scale her stress back to kid levels, and then reset how much of you you let her read.

So, what we think we need to do is to somehow block me from sending the pain to D and shield D from feeling it.  But we don't want to damage our link otherwise.

It's all in the visualization. Or at least that's my theory. I had a similar issue - migraines, even, with my best friend. Since shields are entirely programmable, so long as they are reinforced with energy and intent every so often, as long as you work on specifically filtering out this particular set of info into your shields - which is you specifically focusing on not sending your pain and her specifically focusing on not receiving it - you should be able to reduce the effect. Try shunting that energy off into the earth to be recycled. Make it part of your shields.

An example, you are having a great day but your head kind of aches. She comes in and you want to share the happy. So take a second to tell your shields "Send - Happy, Shunt - Pain". I find it works better of the 'commands' are simple.

Not sure if that makes sense, but it did work for my friend and I. Although for awhile I had the image of a control panel behind and slightly above my eyes stuck in my head. Every time I closed my eyes I'd see it and the buttons and levers for various things.

Including this inexplicable red button with the label "TACO" over it. I never did figure out why my brain put it there.
