Guest Post by Sarah Petruno, Shamana
As twins, Amanda and I often get asked a lot of the same questions.
What’s it like to be a twin?
(We’ve never not had a twin, so I guess it’s great?)
Are you identical or fraternal?
(In the 80s identified as fraternal, though new research suggests identical and this is our belief)
(In highschool) Do you only date other twins?
(It happened once!)
Do you have the same favorite color, same shoe size, same interests?
(I guess, yes, and mostly yes)
Do you share the same thoughts? Are you telepathic? Please tell us about any and all instances of twin telepathy.
(It’s the final question, that I’m here to talk to you about today)
And it’s a tricky one.
Twin telepathy, is considered a mysterious and not very well understood phenomena. But generally, it’s the idea that sets of twins can communicate via thought and share emotions and experiences, even when separated by great distances and long periods of time.
Instances of twins sharing thoughts, emotions, feelings and experiences across great distances are well documented.
And in fact, telepathy is also well documented in a number of other types of relationships.
Mother and Child.
Husband and Wife.
Sister and Brother.
. . .The list goes on.
Telepathy isn’t a feature exclusive to twins at all, it’s a feature of any close bond relationship.
Have you ever called someone, and when they answered, they said they were just thinking of calling you? That’s a shared thought, telepathy.
Have you ever felt worried for your child or parent, only later to learn they were in some kind of danger? That’s shared emotion, telepathy.
Have you ever had a brilliant idea, only to talk to your sister later to learn that she had the exact same idea? That’s telepathy.
Have you ever met someone, who has led a very similar life to yours, and you feel as though you’ve known each other forever? Even that, is a form of telepathy.
Telepathy exists in many twins, because, many twins share a close bond, near and far. Even separated at birth, twins are born into this life together and inherently share a connection.
The reason that many people take an interest in twin telepathy at all, is because it’s a bond that is easily identified externally - two people that look alike and act alike, there’s no doubt they are connected. Not because there lacks other bonds like it anywhere, it’s simply easy to point out and identify in twins. In other soul-mate bonds, you can feel it, sense it, know it, but not always, see it with your eyes. But it’s through this connection, that telepathy can occur.
Telepathy can and does occur through any close bond or relationship. Some may call this a soul bond, or a bond with someone within your soul group.
How does it happen?
There are two primary ways that telepathy occurs on an intuitive level:
- Through a transfer of energy along a connecting thread, a cord, in the form of emotion
- Through a psychic ability known as clairaudience, or clear hearing, occurring between two individuals on a soul level.
Telepathy through Energetic Connections
An energetic link, called a cord, is the thread that connects you and another person or a situation. It’s a shared bond. Energetic cords come in all shapes and sizes, some beneficial, some less than beneficial. Some transferring less than positive thoughts and feelings, and some transferring and sharing between individuals feelings of mutual respect, love, and happiness.
Your thoughts, feelings, emotions and experiences are made up of energy. Everything in this universe is made of of Energy, on a core level, and when you share emotions, experiences, and bonds with another person, this is a connection of your energy to their energy. A thread is shared between the two of you. And through this connection, you and another person are able to share emotions, thoughts, and feelings, without even being aware of it.
Think about it. If your best friend has the thought that she needs to call you, this thought is sent as emotional energy through your soulful inner connection first, before the physical phone is ever picked up. And as you receive this intuitive energetic information, you then also have the thought that you need to call your friend.
Link successful. Telepathic-transfer.
Evolutionarily, this connection was and often is essential to survival. If someone close to you was in danger, it would be important for you have a sense of impending danger for your own survival and also, so that you could save them - where many soul mate bonds are often necessary for our successful survival. Think of the soulful bond between mother and child. This mother, being able to sense danger for her child, could save him. And vice versa.
Anyone with which you share a deep connection or bond, is also likely someone to which you share an energetic connection, a cord. This is also someone with whom you’ve probably shared moments of telepathy. Of knowing what the other person needed without having to say it aloud.
Even in close distance, as a mother to a child, many times, your child doesn’t even need to speak for you to know they are feeling angry or upset. You already know. That’s telepathy through shared emotion.
Telepathy can also occur on another level, too. This is through internal clairaudience.
Telepathy through Clairaudience
Clairaudience is the intuitive ability of clear hearing. It’s the ability you have to clearly hear, speak, and listen to and with all others. This includes those residing in the Physical World with Physical Bodies, like you or I, for example, and also, those residing solely in Spirit.
Clairaudience occurs at the level of Spirit. It’s an ability that you retain as Spirit, when you pass into this world as Spirit, in order to continue to clearly, genuinely and closely communicate with all others.
It’s an ability held by your inner-Spirit.
As a human on this Earth, you have a physical body. Hands, feet, skin, eyes, and internal organs are all components to your physical body. But you also have a Spirit. The essence of that which makes you, you. Your thoughts, your feelings, your personality, your experiences, the sum of all that makes you the unique and complex individual that you are, consisting of all elements of you, past, present, and future. This is your Spirit self.
As you transcend life, and pass into Spirit, you lose your physical sense that exist in thanks to your physical body parts - your ears, your eyes, your skin, etc., and you retain all that is and will connect to your Spirit. You pass into life as Spirit and keep your Spiritual eyes (clairvoyance), your spiritual ears (clairaudience), and your spiritual skin (your aura).
Telepathy is when you communicate at the level of Spirit, though your respective spiritual gift of internal clairaudience.
In telepathy, you can hear the thoughts of another person’s Spirit with your intuitive ears, your clairaudience.
Clairaudience is less an ability that manifests as hearing aloud, and more an ability that manifests as hearing internally. Hearing thoughts, words, and phrases that do not belong to you, and rather, are received by you from another Spirit. It is so often associated with hearing those who are in Spirit only (Deceased Loved Ones, Guides, and Angels), when it occurs with equal frequency between Spirits that also have physical bodies.
Let’s say, for example, you are brainstorming what to make for dinner. Recipes are a creative element of you and are often generated with your soul, your Spirit. In your brainstorming process, you think carefully about what your partner would like best for dinner. What meal would best suit both of you at this time. You could say, that your dinner brainstorming is with your partner in mind. You are directing your ideas at him/her.
Later that day, you talk to your partner, and you find out that he or she was thinking of the exact same thing you were brainstorming. He was thinking, after your projection of thoughts and ideas, about your thoughts and ideas. You could call this telepathy.
Or, you could call this your Spirit communicating with his Spirit, and he received the message, repeating it back to you. (Validation!).
Telepathy occurs between two individuals who share a close bond. Twins included, along with mother and child, husband and wife, partner and partner, best friend and best friend.
Are my sister, Amanda, and I telepathic? Sure, but no more so than you and your closest friend!
