I have done quite a bit of experimenting with casting out my energy field. It started with the whole man-walking-down-sidewalk phenomenon. Because of how we’re socially trained, most men (and I doubt they do it consciously) expect that if a woman and man are about to walk into each other, the woman will move.
In my pre-pain days, I didn’t mind banging into the bloke, waking him up a bit. But now I can’t subject myself to contact sports when I’m just trying to get to the damn cafe down the street. So what I started doing was consciously expanding my energy field when the man was starting to close in on me.
I did it with an attitude of curiosity, exploration. And I have found that almost every single time, the man suddenly veers to the side, exactly when my energy field hits him. It’s shocking every time, though now I’m sort of starting to believe it’s not coincidence.
Well apparently it works with cars as well. I was quite dubious about this one, but I tried it out yesterday: A car was cruising towards me all willy-nilly, down the alleyway I was walking up, to get to my apartment.
As I cowered to the side of the alley, I thought, why not give it a shot? I cast out my energy field tentatively at first, then more forcefully. After that second wave went out, the car swerved. Like, just out of nowhere, it veered sharply to its left — which is exactly where I was pushing it out with my intention.
This shit’s kewl.
