A recent topic of interest here at the blog has been Brain Fog, Spotting Liars, and Life after The Shift. You could call brain fog the opposite of deeper perception. The topic certainly has generated some fascinating comments over at that earlier article.
My favorite so far in this thread came to us courtesy of AN AVID READER who works at an Ivy League University. She wrote in Comment #11 about “students completely forgetting to show up for work-definitely not on purpose. Definitely not lying as it is followed by sincere apologies and promises to do better, etc.”
Wow! Do you have any idea what a big deal that is, Blog-Buddies? These aren’t the legacy students, admitted because their forebears went to the college or contributed large sums of money. These are students who need to work. And hardly layabout-type students, either.
Any student admitted to America’s most selective colleges these days is used to major brainiac focus and working really, really hard.
How best to deal with people in brain fog?
Gentleness was proposed in some comments. ZELDA wrote, “I focused on being kind and more patient with the varieties of fog I encountered. It certainly seems to have helped and I feel better, too.”
Today ISABELLA added to this thread. My headings and links and minor edits are standard, none of it touching that special heart of ISABELLA. Incidentally, ISABELLA, is an Apprentice in the Mentoring Program in Rosetree Energy Spirituality.
Could brain fog be part of personal development, moving forward at an accelerated pace on one’s path to Enlightenment?
Gentleness proposed as a way to help folks who are suffering from brain fog
ZELDA, you are a teacher arent you?
I got that. I agree with you on the gentleness.
Really I have only noticed the problem were talking about here, the fogginess and gentleness, within myself. The lessons from that just naturally go outwards into how I treat people and it works for me.
My personal fogginess was not something building over the last year, but just something I was noticing right before the initial comments here, in April 2014. And though a bit annoying, it wasnt particularly worrying, since Ive experienced it many times before, right after lots of healing and learning.
Mine might not have been a fogginess exactly, since it was cleaner energetically than what fogginess implies . it was just a re-orientation to who I am now after a lot of changes. And it wasnt something building over the last year, so maybe were talking about two different things.
Anyway, with behavior like this Im pretty optimistic. Personally I tend not to notice certain kinds of problems as much as other people. Or maybe I just see them differently. Not to sound corny or impractical, but brain fog often looks to me like a solution rather than a problem.
What is brain fog, energetically?
Could the fogginess be a kind of God-given gentleness for people in a time of some really rough changes?
Right now in my small group of friends there are people going through big break-ups, moving overseas, getting turned down for jobs they were sitting on, etc normal problems.
But I am also seeing a depth of questioning in their eyes that I didnt see before. This could easily lead to full-on crisis mode for people if there werent a bit of fog to ease the way.
Personally, I am not in a position of trying to get a lot of people to do things, other than the local circuit court and the Department of Motor Vehicles. Maybe someone was feeling a bit foggy when they spelled my name wrong on my name change order and then suggested I had spelled my own name wrong lol
I would probably feel totally differently if I were a teacher like you, ZELDA.
