Blessings. May you feel the Elven spirit within you, the magical infinite space of divinity and from which all that appears to be, takes form.
So I’m sitting at dinner party and this lady is going on (and on) saying things like “I don’t want to complain but…” explaining that her co-worker is driving her nuts. Details are flying off her head looking like backward snowflakes (they fall upwards!) because I am not listening, just watching this strange energy pattern.
Beneath her disharmony is an intense reaching; searching, grasping for something. Solace, I believe.
Sometime humans (or the human aspect of ourselves) will become stuck in their minds; stuck in their heads: momentarily or, sadly, for some long periods; even a lifetime.
These humans can churn negative thoughts and feelings like butter (on and on).
Light distraction will change the subject for your benefit, sure, but will also pull the person out of the automatic reaction and do him good.
Remember to be gentle otherwise they end up more upset and will possibly scream, cry, blame you, become violent unexpectedly or shock you. Remember that, you mischievous ones, be tender with humankind!
You want to achieve a gentle surprise that pops them out of their minds: an unexpected motion, perhaps something funny, to distract.
Get them to notice something in Nature, something funny on YouTube, interesting facts or compliment them, or just be sparkling and entertaining yourself so they will focus on your instead of what is in their head.
All humans like things that sparkle and it is good for them, too.
This also works on yourself if you are half-human: you can try controlling your “over-intellect” with a tender distraction.
