The Art of being sensitive

Post by Lynskha on 09.11.17 8:26

The art of being sensitive is something I think very interesting. During some nice talks about vampirism a few years ago, the issue of being very sensitive was raised.

When discussing art in general, there is this feeling people tend to have when observing a painting, or listening to music.

But what we used to talk about, was how a vampire would be more affected by art and its elements.
Being able to perceive beyond the first layers, some could feel the music, "see" it, some having Synesthesia , for example.
Because of this vibration and sensitiveness, admiring art, a visit to a museum, or attending a concert is something beyond words.

Like I mentioned some can sense it in different ways, through different senses of the body.
The experience is unique, individual, as, again , each one has a different manner of dealing with it.
It could be a practical example of the fictional way that it is described that those "vampires" change after the "transformation". Seeing the world in a different manner, being able to have a "super vision" or see things normal people can't.

An image that we used as an example, was from "Interview with the Vampire" , when Louis is transformed, and after he awakes, he looks at a statue, and it moves.
It is even funny how "regular" people react to more sensitive beings, when they start talking about how they feel a sunset for example, or how deep a song affects them. And they think they are exagerating, overreacting as they think :"it is only a song, it is only a flower, it is just a storm" and the vampire see it like a cosmic dance.

This is not only about vampires, because there are many people who are also sensitive, and suffer from the same prejudice, as people tend to look at them and judge.
But among vampires, it is even more intense. So some can be really passionate about many things. Connected with art, or using it to express their inner feelings. Through painting, writing, dancing, singing, playing music.

Art is a pure manifestation of the most beautiful, powerful, and fantastic energy of the Universe.
A way to exteriorize this energy, that sometimes is hard to explain, and should not be explained, just manifested.

A similar experience is gained when using the tarot. shifting the consciousness into the picture of the card and experiencing the elements and the beings there as well as having a conversation with them to determine what message they are explaining to you. Art is experienced the same way.

I think the Tarot very interesting. Different decks, and pictures, that a person can explore, and that somehow resonates with the person exploring it.
This element you mentioned about having a conversation with them is a nice way of refering to how this interaction can be perceived.
The same may be true for the ones dealing with crystals, for example.

I second Maxx's reference to experiences with the tarot. It's an useful tool when used as an internal art form and in that sense it becomes magick. Each arcanum is a unique gateway to transcendence.

I know the question was directed at nightshade but it appears she is not returning too quickly so I will attempt an answer for you. †I feel this would be similar to what she would tell you. †

The preference of the deck you will need to spend time and select the correct one for you and you alone. †It is like getting the right mate in life. †Just picking any deck to use will not be your forte. † Spend time viewing it and feeling the box or even buying several different decks to determine the fit that is just right for you. †You might consider that each card in that deck has a spirit that works with it as well as other spirits that may be inside that card you will spend time with. †Also, for each tarot deck, there is a spirit that is over it and the main one you would call to discuss what you are using the deck for with each special time you pull it out. †Always wait until you know for certain you have contact with the main spirit before going into the work you have planned for the reading or pathworking or ?
Nightshade can add to this, I know, when she returns.

Thank you Maxx.
My question was also just a curiosity about the different decks that people may like to use.

I appreciate your suggestion, as the chosing of the deck may be a matter of the connection and feeling we get.

Also, for each tarot deck, there is a spirit that is over it and the main one you would call to discuss what you are using the deck for with each special time you pull it out.

I thought very interesting what you said.

Always wait until you know for certain you have contact with the main spirit before going into the work you have planned for the reading or pathworking

I will do that, thank you very much.

Here is an example of what you will be seeking as far as developing your ability.

Meditation is primary to develop working with the tarot.

When you have connected in that manner, you can even do a reading without the cards because the spirit guide you work with you on these and will just give you a picture of the card and name it and then you will have a discussion with those inside the pic as well as the mental voice of the spirit guide giving you instruction. Some close the eyes while involved with this while others see even with the eyes open. Very many different ways the other side works with one as we are all different, as you are aware.

Well it seems that Maxx already helped you with this question. Heís right when he explains that finding the best deck that aligns with you is a personal thing and one that can only be achieved through exploration. Meditation and intuition are both essential for this. Donít be afraid to experiment. The only thing that I would add is that although there are just so many wild crazy decks out there I recommend using one that itís built on initiatory symbolism, like for example the decks based on the Rider-Waite system as usually studied in the mystery schools. It doesn't have to use Rider-Waite artwork but it should have a similar arcana structure. Thatís not saying that other decks wonít work, there are some good ones using different systems out there, but there are also others that are just pretty drawings and not much more than that so don't be disappointed if you find some decks that just do nothing.

Thank you Nighshade.

I have Marseille Tarot, one the regular drawing, and the other is a French Version.

A friend is sending me as a gift the Thoth Tarot. I am expecting it in a few weeks.

Rider-Waite seems very interesting too.

We can also work with more than one, right? I mean, my purpose is to explore the symbolism, wht it can tell me, and echoes my inner world.

So through meditation and intuition I can use them as a tool for studying. And for that purpose, different decks would be ok? I feel I probably will feel the one, or the ones to work with at specific moments.
