Can You Read What Is Going On In Another's Mind?

And Don't You Wish You Could?

There are so many situations when we wish we could read exactly what is going on in the other person's mind.

The spouse coming in late at night. Or receiving phone calls at odd hours. Or finding strange entries in their credit card bill. And, _somehow_, we _know_ that there is a ring of untruth in whatever explanation is given to us...

The child behaving odd suddenly. As if there is something going on at school / college which he/she is reluctant to divulge to you. Again, the words coming from the mouth are at variance from the body language that is hinting at a different story...

A negotiation in progress with a labor union leader / take-over artist. We never know exactly what ace they hold up their sleeve, and how strong / weak the position is that they are talking from...

The dating has been steady for quite some time now. And, we are pretty sure that the person in our arms is the One. Or are we? Pretty sure, that is?

It is in these and similar circumstances that we really, really wish we could comprehend the thoughts flitting through the other person's mind.

Does reading a person's mind require that person's physical presence in our vicinity? Should we tune into the body language of the person, the way their facial expressions change, the way the tone of their voice dips and zigzags up and down... in order to "guess" their thoughts? Should we try to pick up clues from their body language?

And what if the person we are trying to read is a total stranger? It is a common observation that married couples begin getting cues about what the other is thinking as they spend more and more time together. This is true with close friends and even office colleagues. But what if you are meeting somebody for the first time?

At any instant of time, thousand-and-one thoughts pass through our mindscape. That is especially true for the "mentally" in-disciplined amongst us, those who are not trained to be mindfully aware through meditation. Hypothetically speaking, if somebody does develop the ability to tap into a subject's thoughts, he or she will likely get swamped and overwhelmed by the torrent of thoughts that the subject is thinking through! Sifting through the threads of thoughts in real-time, and latching on to that one single important thought (infidelity, lying, hiding something, ace-up-the-sleeve, etc, etc) - can be a challenging job! And if the subject simply doesn't dwell on the most important issue or subject that the mind-reader wants to know about - then unless the subject is consciously "reminded" about it through direct provocation or indirect cues, the only way I guess the mind-reader can find out what is going on is by sifting through the Akashic records!

Ah, well, we digress. We are making the subject more complicated than it already is. But I am sure you get the drift of some of the issues involved in mind-reading.

Coming back to the how-to of mind-reading, I have come across this very good course that gives a good breadth of treatment to a vast range of topics. The course claims to take you to the top in the world of psychics in six weeks flat. That is an exaggeration, of course. But their content is worth going through to some extent, and can be taken as starter guide towards the road to general development of psychic abilities, of which mind-reading is one aspect. Here is the URL - Costs USD 99.95. So buy it if you are really serious about working on your sixth sense.
