It can be difficult for people who are spiritually/psychically awakened to share (or not share) their “unusual” experiences with others. Talking about metaphysical topics isn’t as acceptable in our society as talking about sports or movies. I have read about a shaman from another country visiting a U.S. mental hospital and seeing what he believed to be our potential shaman’s being mistreated. (Here is a link for that if you are interested.) I admit the subjects of ghosts and mediumship have become less taboo with popular television shows showcasing them. That doesn’t mean everybody is on board though. If you go around in the U.S. telling people you are a medium you are going to get a lot of looks like you are crazy. You will also likely get people who are afraid of you or lecture you for doing something they perceive to be unnatural.
Thus, awakened people (by this I essentially mean people with open third eyes) can feel like black sheep. Those like me who don’t want to deal with unpleasant attention end up carefully walking a line to avoid the misstep of sharing our views and experiences with people who are not ready for that kind of information. Different from us that wish to avoid the spotlight, some people are comfortable with saying it loud and proud that they are different. Either way is fine as long as it works for the person treading that path. A common struggle for the second-sighted in general (or otherwise spiritually gifted people) is to not have those in their lives seeing what they see. People typically seem to want their loved ones to know what they know, especially if they believe that knowledge is for the good of their loved ones. The calling of many awakened people to teach others might also inspire some to teach even when they are speaking to the wrong audience. However, I believe it is wise to refrain from trying to force spiritual awakenings.
Deciding not to teach others shouldn’t make you feel like you are holding out either. People have enough issues dealing with their perspectives about the physical world. It could be psychologically damaging to them if their eyes are forced open to a scope of existence they are not ready to even start comprehending. Additionally, it is more likely for relationships to be strained because they don’t want to hear what you are saying. We need to let people awaken in their own time. Having a sharp spiritual perception at 15 years of age does not make one superior to a person that awakens in their 50s. Life circumstances, social conditioning, inherited sensitives, and other factors play a role in when each of us is ready. Some might not be ready until they move on from the physical world.
We can find middle ground to connect with others. People can know each other on a deep and personal level without involving spiritual beliefs. It’s like people of different religions forming bonds. Maybe one day a friend will come to you and say, “Hey, I have been going through this weird stuff I don’t understand. Can you help me?” Then you can enthusiastically move forward with your bag of crystals and your woo woo books.
Blessed be, y’all.
