There are beings in the spiritual realms for whom anxiety and fear offer welcome food

There are beings in the spiritual realms for whom anxiety and fear emanating from human beings offer welcome food. When humans have no anxiety and fear, then these creatures starve. People not yet sufficiently convinced of this statement could understand it to be meant comparatively only. But for those who are familiar with this phenomenon, it is a reality. If fear and anxiety radiates from people and they break out in panic, then these creatures find welcome nutrition and they become more and more powerful. These beings are hostile towards humanity. Everything that feeds on negative feelings, on anxiety, fear and superstition, despair or doubt,  are in reality hostile forces in supersensible worlds, launching cruel attacks on human beings, while they are being fed. Therefore, it is above all necessary to begin with that the person who enters the spiritual world overcomes fear, feelings of helplessness, despair and anxiety. But these are exactly the feelings that belong to contemporary culture and materialism; because it estranges people from the spiritual world, it is especially suited to evoke hopelessness and fear of the unknown in people, thereby calling up the above mentioned hostile forces against them.

  1. WHY DOES IT ALWAYS HAVE TO BE THE BOOGIEMAN ?
    THOUGH ENERGY CAN MANIFEST
    BUT WHY CAN’T WE SEE BEYOND THE FACARD
    What is wrong with us …

    “these creatures”
    INVISIBLE are they ?
    I am more inclined to believe that it is energy, equal in capacity to the energy that is given off by the humans in the from of anxiety, stress, fear & indeed all other emotions given off, in fact, by anything in the universe, “the energy created by a babbling brook,” that is attracted to / gravitates to / is drawn to & enhance … multiply – by attraction not unlike a magnetic pull.

    I can tell you an interesting story too.

    There was a reception counter, the receptionist stood behind it. The counter was aprox: 1 &1/4 meters long by 30 cm wide, standing in front of the counter was a man about 5′ 10″ tall, he left hand was placed on the reception counter, immediately to the left side of his body, he was talking to the receptionist, his right arm was stretched out & his hand was placed against the outer wall, this outer wall of the room was another 2 meters along the wall after the reception counter.
    Q: how long was the mans right arm that it could stretch far enough to rest on the outer wall, aprox; 2 plus meters from where he was standing ?

    Also .. scientist Brian Cox claims that GRAVITY came first & all the other objects in the universe came as a result of gravity.
    I do not think that Brian Cox is in his right mind. Too much formal education has turned his brain to mush.

    1. For energy to manifest / take on a form able to be seen – therefore, how much of the human mind has; a) designed how it looks; b) brought it into being; c) is well connected enough to pick up how it wants to look to the human.

      1. WE DEEM THE HUMAN MIND / OUR MIND CREATING, AS MENTAL ILLNESS
        WE CALL THE HUMAN MIND / OUR MIND FUNCTIONING IN IT’S NORMAL BRILLIANT CAPACITY MENTAL ILLNESS
        And fry it to retardation.
        And yet The Establishment has told Porkies too unbelievable to be believed & we gobble them up with such enthusiastic trust.
        How sad we truly are.
