For telepathic communication there needs to be a sender, receiver, and message. No message can transfer from one mind to the other without being sent and being received. Each role is equally important.
Direct sending refers to sending a message directly to the mind of one person. The sender first mentally locates the intended receiver and then sends them a message. There are different ways to do this. One way is to repeat the receiver’s name mentally, over and over, while focusing on “finding” them mentally. Once they have been located, focus on the message and visualize it moving to the receiver and into their mind.
Broadcasting involves sending a message out to more than one person, maybe even a group of people. In certain ways this is easier for the sender, but can also be more difficult as the focus must be broader and involves more than one person. To broadcast a message, experienced senders can focus on each of the intended receivers, locating them mentally, than sending the message. The sender could also focus more clearly on their own mental location and message, making it easier for receivers to “find” them and their message
To directly receive a message, there must be an established connection. As the receiver, first become aware of the telepathic signals around you and begin to extend your consciousness outward. Notice when a message comes to you and focus on it and where it is coming from. After a while, you should be able to easily send out your consciousness into a “net” that can easily catch telepathic messages.
This is the easiest way to receive broadcast messages. For this, the receiver will need to extend their consciousness and locate the sender. Focus on them and “feel” around them to hear or see the message they are broadcasting. There may be noise surrounding them, but you will soon know the message that is being sent. Allow it in.
It is best to practice with someone or a group of people that have experience sending and receiving messages. Practice both sending and receiving, and don’t give up. Keep trying and try swapping partners if it is difficult. As soon as you figure out how to locate someone, focus, and extend your consciousness you will get better at it. An easy game at first is to send color/shape message. Focus on simple images and clearly think “blue” and “square” while projecting outwards.
