The En-Gedi Scroll is an ancient and fragile parchment carbon-dated to the third or fourth century CE. It contains a portion of the biblical Book of Leviticus. It is significant as one of the oldest portions of the Bible in existence. The deciphered text fragment is identical to the Masoretic text, which it precedes by several centuries.
Having psychic empathic traits can be extremely challenging, and even painful. The definition of empathic understanding is to be able to feel what another person feels (sometimes both emotionally and physically).
There are different types of empaths who employ different psychic empathic traits. These are the 10 levels of the empath:
Psychometry - the empathic ability to receive energy, information and impressions from objects, photographs or places
Telepathy - the empathic ability to read people's thoughts
Mediumship - the empathic ability to feel the presence and energies of spirits
Physical Healing - the empathic ability to feel other people's physical symptoms in your own body (and often the ability to heal, transform or transmute them)
Emotional Healing - the empathic ability to feel another person's emotions
Animal Communication - the empathic ability to hear, feel and communicate with animals
Nature - the empathic ability to read, feel and communicate with nature and with plants
Geomancy - the empathic ability to read the energy of places and of the land - geomancers can feel the energies of the Earth, such as Ley lines. They can also get headaches, pain or anxiety before earthquakes or other disasters occur anywhere on the planet.
Precognition - the empathic ability to feel when something important is about to happen (often this can be a feeling of inexplicable dread or doom)
Claircognizance or Knowing - the empathic ability to feel what needs to be done in any given circumstance, often accompanied by a feeling of peace and calm, even in the midst of a crisis
Understanding the fundamental differences between metaphysical and physical senses.
Metaphysical senses are primarily broken down into four categories: clairvoyance, clairsentience, claircognizance and clairaudience. Unlike physical senses, metaphysical senses rely on internal and intuitive feelings and knowledge about things unseen. The four primary metaphysical senses are broken down into different types of internal experiences:
Clairvoyance – seeing things and/or people not of the physical world
Clairsentience – sensing people, emotions or objects that cannot physically seen
Claircognizance – knowing things not previously known
Clairaudience – hearing things and/or people not of the physical world
Most people use the five physical senses: sight, smell, sound, taste and touch. These senses are how the body perceives the world around it. It is how the body interacts with external outliers, from listening to a favorite band to eating a delicious meal.
Polytheism is a type of theism. Within theism, it contrasts with monotheism, the belief in a singular God, in most cases transcendent. Polytheists do not always worship all the gods equally, but they can be henotheists, specializing in the worship of one particular deity. Other polytheists can be kathenotheists, worshiping different deities at different times.
The deities of polytheism are often portrayed as complex personages of greater or lesser status, with individual skills, needs, desires and histories; in many ways similar to humans (anthropomorphic) in their personality traits, but with additional individual powers, abilities, knowledge or perceptions. Polytheism cannot be cleanly separated from the animist beliefs prevalent in most folk religions. The gods of polytheism are in many cases the highest order of a continuum of supernatural beings or spirits, which may include ancestors, demons, wights and others. In some cases these spirits are divided into celestial or chthonic classes, and belief in the existence of all these beings does not imply that all are worshipped.
Gods and Divinity
The animistic nature of folk beliefs is an anthropological cultural universal. The belief in ghosts and spirits animating the natural world and the practice of ancestor worship is universally present in the world's cultures and re-emerges in monotheistic or materialistic societies as "superstition", belief in demons, tutelary saints, fairies or extraterrestrials.
Types of deities often found in polytheism may include
Death deity (chthonic)
Political deity (such as a king or emperor)
Sky deity (celestial)
Gods of music, arts, science, farming or other endeavors.
The presence of a full polytheistic religion, complete with a ritual cult conducted by a priestly caste, requires a higher level of organization and is not present in every culture.
