Dealing with 'Mentaly Challenged' people with 'Siddhis'

Posts: 20 Join Date: 5/8/21 Recent Posts
I have been thinking about this recently quite a lot...so here it goes:

I have in my town quite a few, lets call them, hippie-junkies - with abilities, that I could call or map to, being in efect, a kind of Mind reading/projection Siddhis. 

The other day one verbaly aggressive shitzo dude was quite accurately reading my mind about some of my personal family issues in public on the street. Then some other guy in public transport is going 'freestyle' about everyone he sees, and reads. And so on.

I guess, one could develop siddhis accidentaly, or through drug or alcohol abuse, or through heavy psychological shock... I have experienced it myself to a lesser degree.

I am not surprised, or terribly shocked by such abbilies, tbh it is sometimes interesting, but enough is enough.

My final question - is there some defensive magik method I could use?

I might be biased, but it seems I am always a kind of 'freak magnet' - mile a way they radar on me, and something pulls them to me... What is it?

I am not qualified to deal with them, I will not enjoy their lunacy - but they keep insisting. ;) emoticon

Edit: I can kind of precognise - if a day will be 'normal' or a 'freak' day - on freak day - the freaks pop-up everywhere I go, in the most unfortunate moments.

What I found, practically to some degree helps - doing downwards facing Karana Mudrā and sticking tongue out like in Black Metal concert.

I think they can detect if someone is interested/afraid by their body language, e.g. a furtive glance. Once they've made a connection then it's possible to get someone to believe that they are reading their mind with suggestive comments - 'I know what you are thinking ... you're feeling guilty about that thing you did right ... '

I had a yoga teacher who was psychic, and she told me that there is a universal right to free will that one can apply when bothered by spirits or parasitical energies. I have never tried it for the purpose you are describing, but I guess trying it wouldn't hurt. So something like "I'm using my free will and I'm saying no". Please let me know if it works.

I kind of agree with George here. it be possible that they are good body language  readers or possibly a barnum effect. I am saying this in the kindest way possible and please dont take it the wrong way but it is also possible that you may have taken this too seriously. By your estimation this person possibly could have been mentally ill and may have just been lucky to guess what you think. I think the best solution to this is to ignore them and just follow the 5 precepts  and practice metta since based on what I have read  they give protection to the practitioner.

Just practicing lovingkindness.

Psychology, counseling, and therapy are skillful ways of addressing psychological trauma. Way better than self-medicating, be it with substances, magick, or meditation.

There are techniques such as banishing rituals. Best to learn them from someone who can show you in person. Like meditation, they require dedicated, daily practice.

I might be biased, but it seems I am always a kind of 'freak magnet' - mile a way they radar on me, and something pulls them to me... What is it?


Some people can sense weaknesses in personal boundaries. Establishing healthy boundaries is something a psychologist or counselor can really help with.

Metta / Loving Kindness practice can increase the "freak magnet" effect in the absence of healthy personal boundaries, something to take into consideration.

300,000 years of seeing such people as shamanic authorities ? Hard habit to break. Maybe you're just a nice person.

Considering we did things one way for 3,000,000 years, another for 150,000, another for 10,000 and another for the last 100, and from his rocket Bezos looks down on jungles where there are still uncontacted stone age tribes - that's some hella human variation so you might expect some friction.

Bit of a theme for me at the moment as I read the autobiography of a guru who had some of those leanings and had a seemingly genuine spiritual relationship - as a student - with someone who ended up being hospitalised and medicated. I don't think there's a law that says the enlightened have to be lucid, stable or even capable of washing themselves - although those things are pretty helpful..... :-)

You're not the first to notice this talent for apparently picking up on people's inner lives, or at least a lack of restraint in voicing the internal dialogue that most poeple have.

I have been guilty of so called mind reading during my practice, it always has a way of resolving that I don't take advantage of it, but I am honestly not sure how loyal the heart is to our highest ideals anyway.

Thank you all for taking time and effort to reply!

I was going to comment your comments, but then I thought a bit more, and a bit more, and before I overthing everything, I just comment this.

I think, I sometimes overimagine and over siginfy events, and take stuff too seriously.

The Loving Kindess meditation is something I definately should do more. And practicing on establishing and respecting my own boundaries.

Good. People are much more likely to respect your boundaries if you respect your own boundaries.

Now this is obviously prone to bias, but I have called it out with my sober girlfriend around... there's been times where I've taken too big of a hit of cannabis whilst at friends' parties, and it seemingly made my friends start acting different and weird (they were high and drunk too, but in more of an extroverted loud mode where I was more in an introverted anxiety headspace) almost like I caused it (like, they were already high but not acting creepy, and the second the hit I took kicked in they were acting CREEPY).  Then one time I was coming up on mushrooms and feeling a little uncomfortable while I was gaming and I said to my girlfriend "watch, everyone is going to start acting weird over the mic like some psychic $***." and sure enough everyone started redlining their mics with distortion screaming an inch away from it sounding like demons & stuff, where it was calm before I felt the discomfort.

I don't have any advice, I just wanted to share my story. It's almost the opposite, it didn't make me have controllable or usable powers, but it did cause some kind of weird psychic influence over my environment. I'm aware it could just be what I focus on, but it seemed quite coincidental. I'm also aware drugs can distort your own perception and what not, so whatever.

In my experience, mind reading has been harmless. It seems to happen but what's the big deal? Casting a shield upon yourself and asking for help spiritually for privacy seems to help. Give it a shot.
