In other words, if you answered someone’s question, but later want to change what you said, …
I don’t know much about feudalism or medieval society, but a quick search of Google brought up the following. I hope it helps!
“In the face of invasions by Vikings, Muslims, and Magyars, kings and emperors were too weak to maintain law and order.
In response to this need for protection, a new political and social system called feudalism evolved.
Feudalism was a loosely organized system of rule in which powerful local lords divided their landholdings among lesser lords. In exchange, lesser lords, or vassals, pledged service and loyalty to the greater lord.
Under the feudal system, everyone had a well-defined place in society.”

I’m really sorry to hear that you’re unhappy and so overwhelmed with problems. I think anyone who had to deal with as much as you, at such a young age, would feel the same way. I know that you’re a sensitive person, which probably makes it even more challenging to face these things. But you’re not alone in all this. There are lots of people who care about you, and want you to be happy. There are people on help.com who really care, there’s your boyfriend who sounds like he loves you, and I’m sure your family does too.
At a minimum, things will get better with time. The older you get, the more control you will have over your environment. You’ll be able to make more empowered decisions about where you want to be, and who you want to live with. The memories that trouble you will also fade away with time. What seems like a very powerful memory from the recent past, will gradually lose its grip on you. Old memories will eventually be replaced with powerful new memories, and in time you feel like a new person.
I don’t really know of a way to stop thoughts from occurring, but if it gives you some hope, western medicine is currently researching ways of erasing memories. With scientists like Dr. Tsien, and drugs like Metyrapone, we may one day be able to forget specific memories we don’t want anymore. If you want to read more about it, here are some links:
“A Pill to Selectively Erase Your Traumatic Memories”
“US scientists erase mice memory”
“The Drug Metyrapone to Erase Bad Memories?”
For the moment though, it may help you to understand that it’s fairly normal for kids to experiment with behavior they see from adults. Since they’re too young to understand what type of behavior is appropriate for brother/sister relationships, it’s easy to get confused. Here is a website about such a situation, which includes positive comments from many understanding people.
“Siblings Caught Kissing”
It may also be helpful to understand that dreams are often symbolic, representing something other than what you see on the surface. For example, according to the Dream Forth website, the symbolism of kissing a brother signifies contentment and satisfaction with your association. Dreams also allow your brain to work through issues from daily life while you sleep, as sort of a coping mechanism. According to the Dream Bible website, your brother is just a symbol for an aspect of your personality. In this context, kissing your brother symbolizes getting close to that aspect of your personality.
“Dream Interpretation about ‘kissing’”
“I kissed my brother in my dream”
In the meantime, take a moment to smile at yourself in the mirror. Have you heard the phrase, smile and the world smiles with you? It’s similar to a new-age philosophy that says the world is like a mirror, it reflects back what you put out there. This is more than just a pretty sounding ideology, it is physics. If you wanted to change something in your life, you wouldn’t expect the mirror’s reflection to first change before you felt better. You wouldn’t expect the reflection to smile first. You would instead smile, and watch as the reflection smiles back. So when your brother is around and you begin to feel uncomfortable, start sending out those vibes that everything is ok. Develop the belief within yourself that your past doesn’t have to haunt you. Imagine what it would feel like if that were true, bring those feelings to the surface, and act as if they were true, even if your outside environment doesn’t show you that. And the world will have no choice but to reflect that reality back to you.
I hope you’ve found my reply helpful, and if you have any questions or would like some more ideas please let me know.

What an interesting question! I’ve been fascinated with the idea of meditation and astral projection for a number of years. I wish I had an explanation for everything you’ve experienced, but I’m sorry to say I’m still a novice. From my own experiences however, and from conversations I’ve had with other people, I’d like to try to help by making a few guesses. Although I’d be interested to see if anyone else could shed more light on your questions.
There are a lot of different ways to meditate, and each way accomplishes a different goal. There is meditation to relieve stress, to organize your thoughts, to reach enlightenment, to alter vibration levels, to heal your body, to astral travel, etc. But when you’re first learning, it’s not easy to know exactly what’s supposed to happen.
Let’s first consider what happened to your hand while you were listening to binaural beats and attempting to lucid dream. This scenario indicates you were trying to achieve a semi-conscious state so you’d be aware enough while dreaming to affect them. You were therefore awake enough to notice when you felt something happen to your thumb. But what actually happened? If I were to guess, I’d say this had something to do with Chi. Also known as Ki, or Prana, Chi is “theoretically” the life force energy that flows through your body. While the proposed existence of Chi has been rejected by the scientific community, there are still many cultures that believe in it. There are many ways to learn how to control your Chi, such as through Tai Chi or Chi Gung exercises (which should only be performed with an experienced teacher), or even through Chi meditation. Controlling your Chi gives you the ability to move this energy around your body for different purposes. Some say it can give you temporarily increased strength, while others say it can be used for healing yourself or others. Most importantly in regards to your question, your body can also contain Chi blockages. As the name suggests, these are areas in your body where Chi is blocked from flowing. If it can’t flow properly, then you can supposedly experience health issues. The interesting thing here, is that when a Chi blockage is cleared or broken through, it can feel like someone hit that part of your body. I’ve heard it compared to a water balloon popping, or a rock dropped into a lake, or even a physical slap sensation. If that is the case, it may mean you inadvertently performed some chi meditation, and broke through a blockage in your thumb, so that your Chi was able to flow normally again.
The description of your fingers straightening could also be related to Chi, although it seems more likely to be a natural relaxing of your hand muscles during your calm state. I haven’t heard of anything mystical related to this particular experience, and have a few vague memories of my own fingers moving during muscle relaxation exercises. I’ve also experienced what I consider to be extraneous electrical signals from my brain causing muscles to twinge. Of course, I could be missing some big implication here, but for now I’m not reading anything into this experience.
The final experience you describe of your body jolting is very interesting. As Grim_Hardcastle pointed out, this could just be a natural involuntary reaction from your nervous system, as a consequence of falling asleep. However, I have also heard from a few people that this is your body’s reaction to your spirit either entering or leaving your body. They say that their entire body jolts when their spirit leaves their body, or when it enters it again. Since you say you were attempting astral projection, it would make sense if this was the case. I have also experienced this, once while attempting astral travel meditation, once when waking from a dream where I felt like I was floating above my body, and once when simply falling asleep. Its connection to sleep may be more than just coincidence however, as drifting off to sleep may inherently include some astral travel elements. It may be that we instinctively astral travel while falling asleep, hence people’s assumption that this experience is simply a natural part of the sleep process. It could also be that when we dream, our spirit has the ability to leave our body and travel around helping others, perhaps as a pseudo spirit guide.
Of course, this is all just conjecture. Yet whatever the reasons for your experiences, I encourage you to continue experimenting with meditation. Not only has it been culturally accepted for thousands of years to be beneficial (the Buddha was said to have achieved enlightenment through meditation), there are also numerous scientific studies which show it to be beneficial to your health. And who knows, if you keep trying, perhaps you’ll have a mystical experience of your own, if that is what you desire.
Good luck, and I hope my advice helped!

I’m sorry to hear that you are going through this difficulty in your life. I can personally relate to what you are describing. There were many times in my own experience when I knew of a better road to take, yet inexplicably stayed on a negative path. The best piece of advice I can give you is to stay the course, endeavor to overcome those challenges every day, and never give up. Have faith in yourself, keep trying, and ultimately you will prevail.
I always find it interesting how our brain, which is supposed to work “for” us, sometimes appears to work “against” us. It makes me want to say, “Hey, you work for me, remember?” Yet your posting reminds me of an interesting philosophy, which says that we always move toward those things we “believe” will give us the most pleasure, or away from those things we “believe” will give us the most pain. For what it’s worth, can you think of any reason why you may believe the things you want will be less pleasurable, or more painful, than the path you currently take?
In Latin it’s written as Temet Nosce, or even Nosce Te Ipsum. It translates into English as “Know Thyself”. Whether used by Socrates or Benjamin Franklin, whether inscribed at the Temple of Apollo at Delphi or on a plaque in the Matrix, I have found it to be one of the most important phrases ever spoken. To know yourself, is to understand where you have been and where you are going. There are never any judgments mind you, just love and allowance for the true light that shines within. Question yourself in the third person. Why won’t I do those things which I want to do? Why won’t I change those things which I feel need changing?
Pay attention to how you feel when you imagine yourself taking a particular path, and then ask yourself why you feel that way. What belief do you hold that would create those feelings in you, the feelings that hinder the person you want to be? There is a philosophy that says all feelings come from beliefs. It says anything you feel, any emotion you have, is based on some definition you carry with you. Yet when those definitions no longer work for you, when they hold you back instead of moving you forward, then perhaps it is time for a new set of definitions.
In my experience, commonly held beliefs that hold people back from changing are the fear of failure, fear of loss of control, fear of the unknown, or fear of unworthiness. So ask yourself what’s going on. If necessary, meditate on these questions; quiet your mind, center your being, and see what comes forth. Remember that who you are is not carved in stone. At any given moment, on any given day, you have the power to change yourself for the better. Be the person you wish to be. Imagine it, feel it, be it.
