I come from quite a gifted family. My mother sees auras on people. My brother does the same and is slightly empathic. When I was 2-6 years old at bed time I would tell my mom and dad "Tell the angels I'm tired. I'll play again tomorrow" at this time my mom knew there was something about me but my dad shrugged it off. At the age of 7 I had an experience where I was in some kind of trance and saw a full, detailed apparition of a man who said "It's swelling!" The next morning I went to my brother and asked "Did something bad ever happen here?" and he told me the story of a man who died in my house. He had been cutting hedges and cut through a bee nest, he was allergic and was stung to death. This was in my old home. After that I was scared so ran away from what I had.
Recently, I started to get back into it. On the night we went to the hospital for my nephew to be born I was full of nervousness, happiness, grieving, pain, and I felt the shuddering feeling of death. That is my strongest ability; I feel the emotions of people who have been there. I get the worst feelings in places like hospitals, hotels, and I even got that horrible feeling of death at a friend's house once.
Very recently I was with two friends; one who is a medium and another who has precognition. We conducted a séance in her room. My friend, the medium, was the channeler. She was possessed by a violent, grieving spirit. All I could gather from the experience is that it was a male, a murder, his name had an M, and he was having FUN tormenting my emotions and being inside my friend. I broke the circle curling into a ball and bursting into tears. I couldn't shake the feeling of madness and fear. If ANYONE can help me understand what exactly is my gift and how I can control it please, please tell me.
