    Default How can I convince my parents about spirituality?

    Hello dear avalonians

    i don't know what i am, if i am being upgraded, or if i am an indigo or a starseed or a psychic. The thing is how can i talk and convince my parents about spirituality? Again i was having a real hard time today, with panic attacks and feeling out of control like i was going crazy and again i felt this light energy like water in me calming me down. So my question to you all is, how can i convince my parents that i am probably a psychic or that i have some kind of hypersensitivity.

    I am having trouble doing my normal life, like going to school or work. Today i came home from school and i had to calm down for awhile because i was really stressed and feeling out of control but then i calmed down. This is really draining. I don't know if i'm like a sponge and capture things and feel like this, if i am a psychic or if i'm having some kind of nervous breakdown. Thanks to you all

    Best not to try. Influence those around you by your actions. It's dang near impossible to convince anyone of anything. Changing their mind is an affront to their perceived reality and they will fight it strongly. You must allow them to be who they are if you want to be who you are. Each has their own path. It's disheartening when the paths diverge, but sometimes it is necessary.

    You need the simplest most direct connection with your parents. I know that can seem impossible when you are in a tizzy about stuff yourself, but keep that idea firmly in your mind as much as possible when you are around them. Simple is best, crazy is, well, kinda crazy.

    Don't even try. Serious advice.

    Questions that may be valuable to reflect on:
    • Why is it important for me to have others' validation, agreement or acceptance?
    • Do I have any doubts about my self-worth (or self-truth) that require me to have others' approval?
    • Can I just live a spiritual life (whatever that means!) in my own inner reality, and then communicate — or even teach — my values, principles and worldview through my actions and demeanor?
    The point here is that The Buddha probably didn't need to 'convince' anyone of anything. He was just The Buddha, and did his thing according to his inner guidance.

    Maybe Jeshua (Christ) was the same. We may feel a little different, and not always feel quite so clear and confident, but we can still aim to lead our lives the same way.

    Did anyone ever have to convince you of your own spirituality? Chances are...you "woke up" all on your own, didn't you? We are all on our own path - and no matter how another is related to you - they as well are on their own path. There is no right or wrong about being who and what you are...awake or not. If one's "spirit" is not ready to wake...it is best not to try to do so from the OUTSIDE. Certainly heed the advice given about just doing your thing, and allow your actions to speak of your spiritual nature - not your words! If somebody is ready to seek out what they see in you - they will simply come to you. Just BE...just LOVE...and try to calm yourself (especially your mind) by meditating daily.

    Peace!

    Hello Bill Ryan
    Yes you are right when you say Buda nor Jesus tried to convince people of anyhting. It's true, people have their own paths. But how can i explain what i feel to them and these things to them? Should i? They will probably judge me and think i'm crazy. Sometimes they don't understand how i feel disorientated or weird. I wish i could them that probably i'm a psychic.

    Thank you for your advice. Yes i will probably try meditation or nature. I tend to attract people with problems. So i'm kind of insecure and scared about people. I don't know if they see that in me.

    This is a fantastic thread and a great place to learn about who you are .for me I've learnt to drop all the negative energy I've had dumped on me and simply give it back.

    Hello, Pleiades! Welcome to the Forum! From what you wrote, it seems you could relate to what happened in George Kavasillas' life as a child. There are videos of him here on the Forum. I know I learned much from him. We are all "with you" here on your search. Good advice from Bill! No need to convince your parents; it would have to come from within themselves. Hope you can feel the Good Vibes we're sending your way!

    Honour your parents but do not convince them your psychic go your own path if you can


    On the secret truths I have learned is that we are all psychic to one degree or other .if you are having difficulties okay try this mediation sit in your mediation pose relax every muscle in your body completely imagine yourself completely relaxed now imagine a divine wave of energy going into every part of your body all stress and problems should melt away do this for 1 hour max you should feel stress free after

    Good luck

    I've read the traits of an empath and i feel almost all of them. But as an empath you suffer a lot. I feel pain everyday. I feel pain in my solar plexus. I feel so tense sometimes in my body that i start trembling or feel i'm going to blow up. Today i took 4 anxiety pills at once. Plus the one that i take at night. I felt i was going nuts. I want to have an active life and be social and i can't. Because i don't know when these things are going to happen to me. Are there any therapies that can help me? Should i do something with these gifts? I just know that right now i am suffering a lot.

    Well, don't do that! Any drugs or medications will dampen everything, including your perception, awareness, and abilities. And they may become addictive.

    I am also doing floral therapy of Dr. Bach. Hope it helps.
    Yes, it will. They're totally harmless, and can really work well if you get the right combination of remedies — often, up to 5-6 (max) at once.

    You can figure things out from this summary list, but best of all may be simply to use your own intuition. Go to a store where they have the whole set of 38, and then hold them next to your cheek (or maybe, just in your hand). You'll know which ones you need.

    Hello Foxie Loxie thank you so much for sending me good vibes Yes my parents are very resistant to what i tell them being spiritual matters or not, so i have to stick to myself and to my life. But sometimes i wished i could talk to them when i am feeling bad. Where are the videos of George Kavasillas? Yes i'm searching for people like me or that feel things that i do or have similar experiences. I was also interested has a kid in spirituality and extraterrestrial life. Sometimes i have a very hard time understanding how people live and think in this planet. We are very primitive.

    Lightbulb Re: How can I convince my parents about spirituality?

    Do Religions destroy Spirituality? (...) and what are spiritual people anyway?
    1. it's people taking responsibility for their own lives, not blaming others for their problems.
    2. it's people who deliberately decide to learn and grow.
    3. it's people who don't have to be right, except for themselves.
    4. it's people seeing problems as lessons, perhaps in a long series of lives and lessons.
    5. it's people who believe we are what we think we are, and can change ourselves by changing our thinking.
    6. it's people who feel they can change the world by changing themselves, not by trying to change others.
    7. it's people who search for strength from the universe by going inside themselves.
    8. it's people that recognize that love doesn't have to have conditions attached.
    9. it's people knowing and loving themselves in order to better know and love others.
    10. it's people who see others as not better nor less but rather different than themselves, yet part of the same whole.
    11. it's people that choose their own path rather than follow dogma.
    12. it's people honoring your right to your own path, not theirs.
    13. it's people who realize that now is all we have, since yesterday is just a thought and so is tomorrow.
    14. it's people interested in owning themselves rather than things.
    15. it's people who see joy in life rather than pain, having experienced enough pain already.
    16. it's people curious about extra sensory perception and all it implies.
    17. it's people in all walks of life, from business persons to flower essence healers, psychologists to UFO investigators.


    1. Spirituality is not a religion with a hierarchy of priests and rituals , seeking converts, though some new-agers choose some ritual.
    2. Spirituality is not often gloom-and-doomers, though many are concerned about ecology, the economy and other forces that affect our world.
    3. Spirituality is not a movement based on guilt, anger, fear, or hurt, it is a journey toward the love that is our god.
    4. Spirituality is not allegiance to one master; it is learning from many masters in the quest for the oneness of god [all that is].
    5. Spirituality could not become a cult because of what is said above.
    6. Spirituality is not just humans doing, it is humans being.

    ... and the good news is ... there is NO monopoly having genuine spirituality

    Hello dear avalonians

    i don't know what i am, if i am being upgraded, or if i am an indigo or a starseed or a psychic. The thing is how can i talk and convince my parents about spirituality? Again i was having a real hard time today, with panic attacks and feeling out of control like i was going crazy and again i felt this light energy like water in me calming me down. So my question to you all is, how can i convince my parents that i am probably a psychic or that i have some kind of hypersensitivity.

    I am having trouble doing my normal life, like going to school or work. Today i came home from school and i had to calm down for awhile because i was really stressed and feeling out of control but then i calmed down. This is really draining. I don't know if i'm like a sponge and capture things and feel like this, if i am a psychic or if i'm having some kind of nervous breakdown. Thanks to you all
    I Wonder how old you are, since you are speaking about going to school. My questions is because if you are a teenager, up to 21 years old in fact, hormones are constantly changing and your body as well, adapting to this hormonal rush. Sometimes hormones are up, then you may feel great of tired, other times they are down, you may feel terrible, they finally stabilize completely around 20-21.

    Also, you brain will be completed between 21 and 25 years old.

    Therefore, in some periods of life, it is normal to feel stressed out, to have anxiety crisis, to think we are going crazy. But we ain't.... it is hormonal and growth stuff.

    As for psychic or hypersensitive, yes, some people are more than others. But in todays world, it is getting quite normal. Share with your friends about that.

    As for your parents, they certainly love you, why not just love them in return and not try to convince them of anything. It would make life much easier for all of you guys.

    Default Re: 30 Traits Of An Empath - How To know If You're An Empath

    Hello Bill thank you for answering Concerning chemical medication i know i am crossing the line, and i know it can become addictive but sometimes i really can't control these attacks. Only when i walk for a long time i become better. I did rescue remedy for awhile and now i am trying cherry plum floral by dr. Bach. I am also doing the florals of Saint Germain protection (Brazilian florals). You suffer a lot as an empath. I love people that are very active, just need few hours to sleep and they keep going all day long. Unfortunately i still don't have mental and physical balance to do that. But i would love to be normal. I need to sleep to recover and sometimes be still and in a quiet place. Maybe it was my education or not, i am a only child. I don't know i wish i was more social but it is hard for me.

    Yes Bill sometimes i search for people's acceptance and validation and most of the times i don't listen to myself, to my heart and intuition and i feel very confused like i'm not being myself and not doing my mission. Yes i have problems believing in my own truth and following my own truth and path. I want to live my spiritual life and by my actions and demeanor but many times i feel resistance of others they don't accept how i am and feel. And they don't accept what i want to do. Yes Buda didn't tried to convince anyone of anything. You are right. But i just wanted a little comprehension by my close ones. And i see them doing mistakes and i warn them and they don't listen. And things that are very basic and primitive.

    Five pills seem a lot for stress . A lot people get sick because they cannot face there problems it bottles up and build the body seeks a outlet so after a while they get sick.

    There are acupuncture points which relief stress like a pressure cooker over time it reliefs stress. Okay there are herbs which relief stress lemon balm is something I take. I belief that you should talk to a therapist which will ground you and stop your attacks or go to a Chinese qigong master who will teach you exercises to relief and help you .
