Could I Be Psychic Or Just Very Sensitive?


I am 30 yrs old and have always felt like I had a little something special but no one to help develop it or talk about it with. I don't really know what I have if anything I just know that I am extremely good at reading people to the point where it freaks my friends out sometimes.

I can't even really describe it or put into words how it happens. I think I can feel other people's emotions. It has always made me really good at customer service at jobs:). It happens on a lesser level with just about everyone I come in contact with although I don't think I really process it well or understand it with everyone but it is really strong with friends and people

I am close to and insanely strong with people I have been in relationships with. Does this sound crazy? I swear at times I can feel the exact emotions that my boyfriend at the time is going through and it goes beyond that. During certain times I just know EVERYTHING that is going on with them.

For example, my boyfriend and I recently broke up but were still involved and after a short time I just knew he had met someone else and then later found out that he had. I had no clues to this as he met her on a business trip, I just knew immediately. And now they are in a relationship and I swear I know what is going on with him at all time and in most regards. I know where he is and what he is doing most of the time and how he is feeling.

I can't explain it and I don't want to know all this stuff and feel all this stuff because we broke up and it hurts but I do not know how to turn it off.

Other than this strange emotional connection I have to other people, I don't think I am that special. I have always been able to sense spirits but have never seen any. I have been told by a few different psychics that I am psychic and would like to understand if it could be true and how to explore it.

here it is, finally someone that feels like myself. Ruby for the longest time I could not keep a relationship because my every boyfriend I've had eventually thought I was crazy. For a couple years I believed that was true, but after 3 serious relationships I finally figured out that I was too damn smart for them. Not smart as in intellegent, but smart as in always knowing what they were up to. Sometimes there were signs and sometimes not, but I always had this feeling in my gut when men were cheating or showing less interest in our relationship. It really bothered them because I can't help but speak what's on my mind. Then it was a problem, but now knowing that in the end my feelings and sense of the ultimate outcome of the relationship became true, I know it is more than craziness or an emotional connection. But this is where I noticed my small form of psychic ability. I've alway had it but never took it so seriously until this year, I just turned 27. I work at a mexican restaurant that was built in the early 20th century. Of course everyone believes it to be haunted, but I know it is. I've never had dreams of ghost or spirits until recently, and its because I allowed myself to connect with the spirits at this building. And I tell you what it has never been a pleasent one. Every dream I had was of them surrounding me while I was in bed. Its like I was awake powerless. Screaming for my boyfriend to help. The same dream occurred atleat 3 times. I know now that I have a connection with spirits but I don't really understand it. If you really want to know if your "psychic or emotional" open your mind and believe that your can sense spirits. But if you allow your mind to wander make sure you can get it back. I had a tough time closing that door and acting like there are no spirits at my work, but it can be done. You can accept them, and just as easily turn around and deny them. I'm not saying try it, but you sound like I did 3 years ago. Its actually very scary but you learn a lot about limits between psychic ability and emontional connections. Good luck

Hey Ruby, I think I understand what you're going through. I too have this emotional connection with people & also animals. I've always had it. I've never seen a ghost, but I do feel the presence of someone either staring at me or sometimes I can just tell what part of the house they're in. I do, however, see what I call "shadow people" sometimes, not all the time, thank God.

I don't know if you're psychic or just really sensitive. My gut feeling is that you're really sensitive & in tuned to what's going on around you. But who knows? Maybe you are psychic & you just don't know how to hone in on it. I also don't have anyone to talk to about this. That's why I'm on this web site. I do talk about it sometimes with my husband. He says he has never felt a presence of someone behind him or anything like that. A part of him believes it could be my imagination. But at the same time, part of him believes I do feel these presences and/or see these shadow people. When he's trying to be skeptical, he'll tell me I'm just seeing this stuff because "the brain will make you see some freaky stuff when you're watching all those ghost shows..." I tell him, then why do I see these shadow people when I'm not even thinking about it while I'm watching 'That 70's Show' or 'Everybody Loves Raymond'...hmm? They appear when I least expect it. I wish I could be more help, but I'm kind of in the same boat as you.

Ruby - you sound like me. Despite the years of sensing of things, I still wonder what it means. Perhaps it's my generation not being accepting. Day before yesterday I told my son he should call a friend he seldom sees. He did. Then they invited to sleepover and picked him up which was fine. I gave him permission. They went to the friend's grandfather's house and rode 4 wheelers. Yesterday morning, my son phoned early, I was up, and asked me to get him. The grandfather had passed away, unexpectedly. I picked him up and talked to his friend's mom. Later this friend came to our house and is spending the night. At one this morning, I told the guys it was time to call it a night. His friend told me that he was now 17. It's his birthday today. This morning I took out a card, that I bought a few days ago in case, and put money in it and put it on the counter for him. With the circumstances, I'm still thinking over the cake thing. I suppose to me, being sensitive is just caring and being attuned to people. This morning, also, my oven timer went off. I don't use it. Perhaps the guys messed with it last night. Can't image it, but perhaps. Sometimes being sensitive is just helpful.
