A lot of this story is my personal speculation, but my friend who's more knowledgeable on this stuff tells me to go with my gut so I'm going to do just that.
I've always been really good at making friends randomly. I've walked up to someone random on the street and been friends with them and hanging out the next day like we'd known each other for weeks if not longer. The way I usually do this is I have a sense for if I can be friends with people or not. Just a feeling I would have when I look at someone.
Recently, as I've said in my other story entry, my friend has been speaking to me about her abilities. She can see auras and apparently spirits too. She thinks it comes from her Cherokee blood. Apparently, her great-grandmother married a chief. She told me my aura is very strange in that it is very overbearing, and stabs other people's auras. Not like an attacking way though. She describes it as tendrils giving little shots to the person I'm trying to make friends with. All of this is her words, and I have no personal experiences to back this up. I just thought I was naturally gregarious.
I also have a tendency to meet people with problems. To express how random this can be, I have a friend in Texas who I met on a trip to Washington D.C., and he has a friend in California with issues. Well I try to help these people through talking them through it. Not giving them answers, but trying to at least lead them to peace within their mind. Well my friend says that because of this my aura is covered in splotches of other people's problems, and that my aura almost feeds off of other people's bad energy and cleanses it in small doses. Again this is all her analyzing me for a few years though she hasn't told me any of it until recently.
The thing is though, one of the reasons I've always been good with people is that I can read them pretty well. I have a knack at just looking at a person and knowing what kind of person they are, and their personality. I've been told I have a knack to make people trust me. People I talk to about these problems say they trust me easier than they have anyone before. Apparently my "stabbing" is responsible for this.
Sorry this is so long but there are many parts to this and I feel I can't get or others could give a good response unless they know it all.
Well as I said in my first story, ever since my friend told me I had a spirit following me I've been wearing an evil eye around my neck. I've also had one on each wall of my room for as long as I can remember. When I wear the evil eye around my neck it makes me feel contained, but not like a wall keeping it in. My gut feeling is it has a warding affect that is caused by drawing directly from my energy and storing it until it would be needed. I've felt since I've been wearing it that I'm not as good with people, that I can't read them as well.
But the thing is, I've been sleeping in a room with four of these for my entire life. If my gut feeling is true and they DO draw from me, apparently every night for my entire, what would that mean for my energy level if I removed them from my room, would my ability to read people potentially increase? Would my ability to make new friends instantly become more powerful?
My friend though has told me quite strongly not to remove the wards. She says the sudden non-existance of these wards would be an invitation to malignant entities. I saw her point so I haven't.
But that's my story. If anyone can relate to his in anyway or confirm any of my gut reactions please tell.
