Here’s something I’ve been mulling over since a PSYCH-K ® client and I spoke about it recently. For want of a better term, I’ve called it Lockdown Telepathy.
Now I know this sounds a bit woo woo but bear with me!
I hadn’t seen this client in nearly a year, and a few weeks ago he rang to book an appointment. Oddly enough, he had popped into my mind a couple of times in the week before he called, which I mentioned. And he got quite animated and told me that the previous week, 5 people he’d rung said that they had either just picked up their phone to call him or they were thinking about ringing him, at the very moment that he rang them.
Most of us have had similar experiences but we put it down to coincidence and don’t think about it anymore. But because it happened to him 5 times within a week, my client was really struck by it. How come they seemed to be so tuned in to each other?
According to science, there’s a lot more data out there than the rational mind is aware of or has conscious access to. And that data can be extremely useful when making decisions, big or small.
Many extremely successful business people, like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, value their intuition highly when making decisions, whether they call it gut instinct or hunches. Albert Einstein called the intuitive mind ‘a sacred gift’, and said that ‘“All great achievements of science must start from intuitive knowledge,”
Research and quantum physics can measure that we’re all picking up more information from our environment than the conscious mind is aware of. And they’ve proven that we’re all connected at the quantum level.
There exists what physicists call a field of information where everything is connected and which we’re all a part of. We’re constantly sharing and picking up information from the field.
That’s why quantum theory seems to explain things like intuition, which psychologists describe as ‘… a process that gives us the ability to know something directly without analytic reasoning, bridging the gap between the conscious and non-conscious parts of our mind, and also between instinct and reason.’
So how do we cultivate our intuitive minds? And what’s the point of doing that?
Which brings me back to my client’s experience at the start of this ramble. I think there were 2 things happening which could explain why he noticed this ‘telepathy’ on 5 different occasions and with different people.
The first is that during the Covid-19 lockdown, people began to recognise how important their connections with other people were, and we all became aware of the risk of becoming socially isolated. So people were more deliberately thinking about people they’d like to reach out to and connect with. That would have increased the connection between them in the field.
But why were they tuned in to each other and somehow able to act on it?
The world became much slower and quieter in that we weren’t rushing around from one place to the next and doing lots of things on autopilot as much. There was less traffic, less bustle in the streets, less activity. So with that came a quieter mental space as well, for many people. My theory is that because life during the pandemic suddenly got a lot quieter – literally but also energetically – it allowed them to be able to tune in more to what was going on in the field.
Life will eventually go back to the old level of busy-ness and bustle, but the period of lockdown has given us a different experience, and a lot of people have told me that they want to find ways to keep that inner quiet space intact. So here are some suggestions …
- Mindful meditation (or any form of meditation)
Meditation is great for developing our awareness and intuition. It creates a quieter space in our minds and consequently within ourselves. Sometimes people think that meditation is about tuning out or blocking out stuff. But that’s not its purpose at all! It teaches you how to tune in. That’s why many people experience increased intuition when they practice regular meditation.

- PSYCH-K ®
Our beliefs about ourselves can affect our ability to notice or trust our intuition. If you find that you’ve got a busy inner critic making you doubt yourself or undermining you in some way, then that creates stress. It’s negative and nasty, and makes you feel uncertain about yourself, or even unsafe, which is really stressful – the same as if you’re being constantly criticised by another person. The stress creates a sort of mental static – noisy and intrusive, making it hard to ‘hear’ other information easily. Neuroscience thinks that the part of the brain associated with intuition is within the prefrontal cortex, but chronic stress causes the prefrontal cortex to shut down so that we can’t think clearly, or can ‘hear’ other information from the field.
