What is Distant Influence?

Misbah has always wanted to pursue writing as a career. She has done her Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Fine arts.

What is Distant Influence?

Another level of energy in a relationship examines how another person can affect us from a distance. Scientists call this "Distant Influence." Or you can say distant mental influence.

These are nevertheless energy-level events, even though the other person is outside our energy field and even miles away.

In this case, various dimensions of real interaction with the physical dimension of time-space in which something is felt, and the dimension of the non-native mind, which is not limited by physical laws.

For example, one evening Mark was standing in a long line at the door of the theater when, right in front of the line, about twenty yards away, he noticed a man who was reminded of an old college-time friend from behind. Considering if that could be him, Mark never lost sight of the human eye.

After a few moments, the man turned around and looked straight into his eyes. It wasn’t his friend at all, and Mark felt uncomfortable that the stranger felt his intimate gaze. How can this phenomenon be explained? How did the stranger feel and how did he know that Mark was staring at him?

"Horror passes through my back at his sight"

When you feel “horrible” from someone’s intimate gaze, you describe very precisely what is going on energetically. In Chapter 2: It is mentioned that the eyes radiate. But something more is happening here. That skin feels “shiver” and is the result of stimulation of your autonomic nervous system (the automatically functioning part of the nervous system). This activation is measured by lie detectors that react to a galvanic skin response.

The Autonomic Nervous System

Scientists have long known that we can regulate the activity of the autonomic nervous system, and this is the basis of bio ultrasound. Through imagination or other techniques of the mind, we can learn to slow the heart rate, change blood pressure, or reduce muscle tension.

We now know that our autonomic nervous system can be affected by other people’s thoughts or intentions, such as attentively like Mark’s gaze. This phenomenon, when another person can influence autonomous activity, is called “Aleo-bio ultrasound”.

This was demonstrated by an experiment when researchers placed a volunteer in a quiet room where a video camera was pointed at him. Also, the volunteer was connected to the apparatus that measured the activity of his autonomic nervous system. In the other room, meanwhile, an “observer in the distance” was watching a TV screen that was blank half the time and the camera was showing the volunteer being filmed half the time.

In this situation, the volunteer — with the help of simple senses, of course, until — could not know when he was being studied. Curiously, however, the activity of the volunteers' autonomous nervous system was much more static when they were seen than when nobody looked at them.

Noro Power

Another study looked at whether an observer, instead of just looking closely, could “force the will” or “intend” to direct a volunteer's skin galvanic reaction in a certain direction. Half the time, the observer attempted to increase or decrease this response, and the other half did nothing. In twelve of the thirteen tests where influence was used, the level of voluntary autonomic activity of the nervous system changed significantly in the desired direction.

Such phenomena control our sensitive reaction to the energies we are sent by others. Many of the experiments conducted in the former Soviet Union have also examined the effects of distance on others, including the question of how focusing on people can affect people’s concentration at a distance.

In one experiment, several people tried to solve mathematical problems, and at the time, without their knowledge, scientists attacked them with a stream of incessant numbers, panicky emotions, and uncertainty, and self-confidence. It turned out that it took much longer than usual to solve those tasks. Other studies have shown that it is possible to slow down a person’s reaction if someone else has accumulated and wants to slow it down.

We can positively influence others as well. Dr. William Braud and Dr. Marilyn Schlitz conducted a startling experiment in this area at the Mind Science Center in San Antonio, Texas. People seated in one room with positive intentions and strong visualization abilities to reduce blood pressure and electrodermal (skin permeability) activity. In those people sitting in isolation in another room, these changes showed reduced tension and anxiety.

In another attempt, Braud and his colleagues — sixty volunteers in a row concentrated their mental energy on one person in another room. Each concentration session lasted sixteen minutes. For eight minutes, the volunteers tried to "help" the person in the next room to focus on the candle. For the next eight minutes, the volunteers did not concentrate their thoughts.

People in a separate room didn’t know when others were sending help. As soon as their attention distracted from the candle, they were told to press a button each time. The computer marked when the button was pressed.

The result was unexpected; it turns out that the person was in a better position to keep the focus on the candle when the help was sent to them. In addition, those who found it difficult to focus on life responded more to help than those who believed they could focus well.

These discoveries testify that our bodies can be affected by other people at a distance. Researchers have concluded that we can participate with others in a field of events that are outside space, beyond time, and transcends, in our view, the boundaries that exist between people.

Reading this would give positive affirmations for those who pray for people. At least positive energy is sent their way.

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on May 22, 2021:

Do you know about distant influence?

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on January 27, 2021:

Dear Jodah,

I really wanted to appreciate your poetry today. Its wonderful piece of writing. I loved reading it. I commented there but not sure if it reached to you or not.

Stay bless and tuned

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on January 26, 2021:

Thanks a lot Jodah,

I am glad that you like it.

May God Bless you

Kind regards

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on January 26, 2021:

These studies were intriguing. Thank you for sharing Misbah.

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on January 26, 2021:

Thanks a lot gyanendra

I feel honored and glad at the same time.

Stay bless

Misbah786, You have penned your article exactly to the point how humans influence and affect each other. It is a constant flow of movement. I am lucky to have read such books who had litterally lived their life. Those experiences are explained in their books. And I have met the writers too. But they did not write exact words in English. I find those terms in your article. I haven't heard those terns before. So I have written them down in my notebook. They will be my word power when I give a talk program or teach someone in need orally. It will surely be good for my writing too. Thank you.

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on January 26, 2021:

Gyanendra Mocktan This is true that it happens with a lot of people. It is believed that this happens with only true soul mates, many people also believe when eyes are contacted with each other in any specific way only then this kind of relationship can be made. Which lasts forever as that’s the time when soul meets.

God knows well. But in true there are a lot of people who have such relationships. We the humans are here in the world to discover.

I hope everything goes good with you


Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on January 26, 2021:

Thank you so much Rosina

I am glad that you liked it.

Stay bless

Rosina S Khan on January 26, 2021:

Long-range Influence was interesting to read. I have read about telepathic wires between people over a distance. Your topic seems something similar. Overall, a good write and enjoyable too, Misbah.

gyanendra mocktan from Kathmandu,Nepal on January 26, 2021:

I'm already under the influence of someone for whom I've been running around However, I've briefed him via email As soon as his new passport arrives from his home country U.K ., my meeting will be thinner and thinner.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on January 26, 2021:

You are welcome.

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on January 25, 2021:

Thanks Jodah for letting me know

Just have to check now if my comments are visible on others articles too or not.

Thanks a lot for helping me


John Hansen from Gondwana Land on January 25, 2021:

Yes, Miisbah, your comment has appeared here.

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on January 25, 2021:

I don't know why anything is not helping me.


manatita44 from london on January 25, 2021:

No. Nothing yet. It can take a few minutes. re-boot and clean your Registry. Then try again. I start poetry in 3 mins. It's an American group

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on January 25, 2021:

Manatita I just commented on your article can you see that too. On this article Of Love and Light, Singing Their Own Songs. Monday's Inspiration 77, to my Hubber-Friends

I am very sorry that I am disturbing you. But please let me know I am missing my comment box


manatita44 from london on January 25, 2021:

Yes, this is working now. No problem for me. Salaam!

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on January 25, 2021:

Thanks a lot Manatita,

You are right

Please let me know if my reply on this comment reached you. I am curious to know what's going on.

As I have commented on your article as well but it didn't reached you nor to others.

Kind regards and blessings

manatita44 from london on January 25, 2021:

Yes. We are one in Spirit and that is why Amanda Gorman was able to reach Hearts globally. Consciously or unconsciously, she was exuding the Light of the soul ... the Light of Consciousness. Happens all the time. You might say, that it's a tool of Love. Om Shanti!!
