FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC
Can you help me find gold?
This is not an unusual question in the Applied PSI field.
One of the areas of PSI that has been popular
over the years - yielding everything from titters at a Hallowe'en party to crime
investigations, hauntings, and the search for extra-terrestrials - is psychometry.
Psychometry is the use of the body's sense of touch. Combined
with the body's data interpretation centers, which tell the human or animal
what it is that is being sensed, along with other sense indicators,
(such as the ancient sense of smell) psychometry "feels" - touches,
smells and interprets - what is in contact with the physical body's sensors.
(Hearing and visual sensors can be brought into use in addition.
See information pages about clairvoyance and clairaudience.)
People psychometrize every day of their life - if one
closes his eyes, can he tell the difference between a metal
toaster and the toasted bread within? These feel different -
their textures are not the same and their temperatures differ;
they do not smell alike. They are shaped differently and
are of different weight. Without looking, one can easily choose between them.
Their unique vibrational levels and the size of their field
of delivery differs.
What about the difference between two pieces of
toast held together and a grilled cheese sandwich?
Easy again: shape, weight, temperature, texture, smell, size are
not the same. The delivery fields are different again.
What about the difference between a piece of toasted white
bread and toasted 5-grain bread? Try it. Practice.
Now, imagine that the two slices of toast are four
feet under the ground? Can you tell if they are the shape or
texture or smell of toast? If you can,
can you say which kind?
How about a simple experiment? If you turn
your back and have a friend pick up either the toast or the
toaster, can you determine, without looking or asking questions, which
one has been lifted?
Impossible, you say? If you put the shark's food under
the ocean floor, he finds it. Hide the food from the jaguar while
he is out of the enclosure - watch how quickly he
finds it. What about those pigs that dig for truffles?
And your dog? Or cat?
Man is equipped with the means to detect that which he needs
to know. In ancient times, man needed to know that the very large
predator was coming to the cave before it arrived. If
he realized and paid attention too late...he'd likely
never need to know again. And, many human remains have been
found from picking through piles of faunal remains (bones,
skulls, etc.) left by predators of all species. Being
able to sense the footfalls of a predator while it was still
at a distance - to "feel" the vibration of earth
under foot - to "feel" the motion of the air as he breathed
and moved - to sense the fear of other creatures as he passed
through their domains - meant the difference between having
dinner and being the main course - life or death.
Over time, human lives have become increasingly buffered and man has
stopped paying attention to these basic pieces of survival equipment;
man has desensitized himself. He, overall, feels safer or he delegates
his need for protection to others who get paid to "protect
and to serve" the population. He is out of practice.
If his senses do tell him something - a tornado is
on the way, for example - he waits for consensus opinion or
popular agreement or weather forecasters' opinions before
he makes his move...and often suffers the consequences. Fear
of appearing to be "paranoid" trumps his need to survive!
It is most often in terms of life's "negatives" that
humans use this sense ability - its primary purpose being to help
humans survive. There is a "need to know" at those times.
Can it also be used for "positive" aplications?
The answer is yes; although, since we usually don't mind being
"surprised" with happy news, prize winnings or the discovery of
fortunes, we seldom trigger the physical processes - the
electromagnetic changes, the chemical process, the degree of
alertness, the alterations of brain waves - necessary to use
the senses for psychometry. Man doesn't practice. If man tries it
and fails, he stops practicing. Imagine if one had
stopped practicing math.
Using psychometry is the most ancient of ways
for man to navigate the physical world. His internal mechanisms for
smell and touch come into use automatically, unconsciously
often, in his contacts with other humans. Some strangers
"feel" dangerous to him, while others "feel" like a new friend or
customer, even before he begins conversations or actions or has
the time to observe body language or behavior. For those
who have experienced "sensing" a presence in the room or
feeling someone sneak up behind you, the senses of touch and smell allowed
you to know before your eyes perceived it.
A predatory animal whose likelihood of attacking a human
may depend partially upon the size of the prey
will treat two same-size human males differently. One will
pass; the next one will cause the predator to go into a state
of alarm and to begin behaviors (posture, position, alignment,
siting) consistent with taking action to eliminate what they
view as a danger to them. Does the animal sense the presence
of a weapon on the second male - feel and
smell the metal of a gun or knife? Does the second male's
personal pheromones or after-shave elicit a fear response? The
predatory animals - big cats, such as jaguars for example - practice
psychometry every day and night.
Back to our original question: Can man find buried gold or gold stashed
away somewhere? The answer is yes. Have you
practiced? Ask yourself:
How does gold "feel?" How does it "smell?"
How does it vibrate? Can you feel a spin or
radiation? Is it hot or cold? Heavy?
Light? Rusty or not? Sugar-coated?
If "gold" could walk and it sneaked up
behind you, could you recognize it by its vibrations
alone before turning around? This is where the need
for practice, preferably at a young age, enters the picture.
How does metal feel compared to wood or stone?
How do the minerals feel?
Does magnetite feel the same as calcite?
What kind of vibes is man seeking if he seeks gold?
If our imaginary man practices and finds himself
beyond lessons and in the field, saying he
can now detect the vibrations of gold, will he succeed?
"Here," our man says. "This spot." The natural
next question - one that will send him back for more
practice, is: In what form is the gold?
Is it a gold vein, the motherlode?
A cache of gold rings left by a thief?
Gold bullion? A gold watch? Gold plated fittings?
A gold tooth? A few flakes of gold dust dropped once
by a careless (and likely soon-to-be poor) pioneer? A few naturally
While our man may be ecstatic at his new-found
abilities, it may be that he needs to determine the nature of the
find to more exacting standards. Do you drain a lake for a gold ring?
Our man may have obstacles to his practice - fear, for example.
Fear trumps discovery of "fun" finds in detection triggering
processes. If he is trespassing, his instincts to avoid
detection may call for him to divide his attention, a large
portion of his sensory mechanism being routed toward
detecting approaching owners. If he is in the wild, it may
be alligators or bears he is trying to avoid.
"Divide and conquer" often disrupts or decreases
the ability to seek out "extras" or fun discoveries
using our senses. For that reason, teams in which someone "keeps a lookout"
can be helpful, so that the fear mechanism, the primary sensory trigger, can
be softened in that direction.
Psychometry is also used in crime detection,
in a manner similar to fingerprint reading at the scene.
Ideally, if a psychometrist is being called in, he should arrive
as soon as possible after the crime has been committed. This
avoids the additional imprints of the energy (psychic fingerprint)
of the visitors and investigators overshadowing those of the
victim and/or criminal. Absolutely no cleaning or rearranging should be
done. No dusting! Nothing should be removed. The psychometrist
then walks the scene and reads by sensing and allowing
the brain to interpret, usually recording in an uninterrupted
flow whatever is forthcoming - a name here, a feeling there, a scene
flashing by or a story unfolding. "Was the burglar ill?"
That question once arose in one such session after certain
areas evoked flu-like feelings and headache pain. "Funny
you'd say that," the victim replied, "because they went into the bathroom
and the only thing they took there was my sinus medicine."
In walking a scene, all the senses come
into play. In the same moment that the senses of touch
and smell may detect a weapon, the sense of clairaudience (hearing)
can be listening to the spirit of the body's
former occupant tell their story as they remember it. Remote viewing
and/or mind blending which connects to both criminal and victim
can give a more complete picture. Combining and using sense
receptors and interpreting them is the most ancient way of
seeing the "un-seeable." For most people, brain-blending and other
inter-related skills require a great deal of re-learning
and caution. Remember: if you are "wired" into the mind of the killer, for
example, then he is also wired into your mind. Unless you are a
professional, you may elect to avoid this possibility. He is alert and paying attention.
There are other, less frightening, uses for psychometry.
Dousing, or water-witching is a form of psychometry.
How does that branch or that coat hanger or your arms
know that there is water down there or way over yonder?
One can also search for energy sources, such as oil,
Body scanning for variations in the electomagnetic field can
indicate changes in the physical body's wellness. Some persons enjoy weather
forecasting using this technique. Rock hunters and escavators can
determine the vibes of the land and the nature of what is buried there.
In search and rescue, psychometry can be used to read
the trail or get a sense of the presence of the missing person or animal
(or object) by handling that which they may have touched; also,
by walking the area for atmospheric and terrestrial changes in
vibrations and psi imprinting. Photographs of the missing can be
scanned. Remember the way in which your image finds itself on a
piece of paper or film? Are you still laughing at those
old ones from the past who said that they did not want to be
photographed because they did not want their spirit to be stolen?
Can man find gold? The tools are there.
If the motivation and practice are present and no danger
is present to distract him, it is possible.
Practice. Play hide and seek. Follow that pig to
the mushrooms. Learn about sharks. Sharks are great teachers of
these skills. Do you doubt the ability of the shark to bio-locate
you in the water? Sharks are hyper-sensitive to alterations
in vibrations. An oceanic area that has been experiencing
hurricanes, earthquakes, magma plumes, or changes in
atmospheric pressure will have over-reactive sharks present until their
senses tell them that they have swum away from danger or that
things have quieted down. Similarly, if a competitor shark is migrating through
their territory, the territorial shark knows it and will be on high
"guard" at all times. These are days when swimming with the shark
is not advised. At other times, the same shark will likely make note
of your presence before you see him and let you pass.
One of man's oldest skills...part of man's original equipment...
The next time you want to know the weather,
turn off the television and relax and breathe the
outdoor air. Ask yourself, "what's coming? And, at what time
will it arrive? Is it near?"
Then, go look for gold.
