Energy cycles - what is this?  
Someone please help me. I think I am losing my mind. ^_^

Over the past few weeks I have had intense energy "waves". They are random and can sometimes be very intense. I have at times been dizzy and I can't stand to be near any sort of electrical humming--it resonates with my head and it makes me feel very peculiar.

With the waves can come this sense of euphoria. Sometimes it is so intense I cannot concentrate.

I am sleeping well--with the added caveat that when the cycles get intense enough I sleep much less and seem to require quite a bit less. I am eating well. I am always monitoring my diet and am getting more than enough iron, protein, vitamins, and what-have-you--in fact I eat an absurdly healthy diet. I am of sound physical health and even exercise.

What is going on with me? It's very intense, and the energy isn't something I am used to. My body is starting to feel "lighter". There are times when I look around me and I feel like I'm only partly in the world.

Can anyone help me figure out what this is? Is this normal? What does this all mean?

I am tempted to post this on the forums but I don't know how people will react. ^_^;


PS Case in point - I had a pretty intense one yesterday. I've been up since 5am and went to sleep last night around midnight. My usual rate is about 7-9 hours of sleep....

Re: Try this...
That makes things a little more complicated.

To test if your techniques are working, there are various things to try. Frex, for shielding, go to a place or person you typically find irritating. Raise and lower your shields and see if you feel any different with them up vs. down.

Sometimes things that used to work stop working, especially if you've grown a new talent or an old one has gotten stronger. Other times there will be particular types of energy that get through. And anything tuned to block natural energy generally won't block synthetic energy, and vice versa; if you've been running only one of those and the other suddenly becomes perceptible to you, previous techniques likely won't cover it until retuned.

(replied under wrong lj... ^_^)

Yeah this is going to be a lot of trial and error. I'm getting HIGHLY sensitized.

Best description is this, I think: it's like entering a room where it's painfully, painfully bright. And having to adjust to that brightness.

Another good one: a really loud, painful sound that's so loud I can't hear it but it's affecting me.

Re: Try this...
That sounds like a shielding problem. Your shields can protect you from magical input that is too intense.

Another possibility is that your magical perceptives are getting more sensitive. Some people can control that sensitivity and "turn it down" at need. If you keep it set at a moderate level, you can also turn it up when you need more acuity.

Yeah the volume control seems to be beyond my control. :P

I need to work on this... just dunno how. O_O

Re: Try this...
I sympathize.

When you get overloaded, try visualizing a dial labeled "Magical Perception" and then imagine twisting it downwards a few notches.

Re: Try this...
Sounds like a plan.

The universe is large, bright, and LOUD. GAH
