I'm college freshman majoring in Education. I identify as an empath, developing clairvoyant, light-worker and INFJ.
It all started with my dreams- I have always been an avid dreamer, having dreams every night. At first I thought I just had a very active imagination, but towards the beginning of my freshman year, my dreams would be extremely detailed. By the time I graduated high-school, many of my dreams had come true. Entities and sprits started to communicate through dreams on a nightly basis, many of them showing how they had died. I had mastered lucid dreaming, and also had a very short OBE/Astral Projection through an episode of sleep paralysis/lucid dreaming.
My dreaming had acted as a catalyst, sparking a whole line of other experiences in the physical world. In one year, I went from having no interaction with the metaphysical, to incorporating it into my everyday life. I communicate with spirit mostly through dreams, but can hear, smell, and feel sprits in the physical world. I like to believe that I've helped some spirits cross over. On one occasion, I have seen a demon in the physical world.
Along with dreaming, I believe my strongest gift is being able to receive impressions and "vibes" from people, inanimate objects, and locations. All of my impressions come in the form of visualization, symbols, and emotions. I have impressions from both the past, present, and future. Lots of precognition and premonitions! Sometimes it can be a little crazy and cumbersome to know so much about someone before I even meet them.
As an empath, I also take on the emotions of others. It can sometimes be very difficult for me in my professional and personal life. But I try to recreate everything I feel into positive energy.
I'm hoping to find any general advice from experienced psychics, and common ground with young psychics. I want to develop and use my skills for GOOD, but sometimes feel overwhelmed and drained. I have no means of support groups, or "sensitive" friends. It get get pretty lonely. What helps support you through your psychic journeys? I use meditation, crystals, journaling, prayer, and tarot.
I would love to hear how others work with their gifts, experiences, and skills.
