Am I Clairsentient?


I recently found out that I am an empath, but when I looked up information on clairsentience, I found that a lot of the occurrences that are known to happen to people who are clairsentient have been happening to me, or have always happened to me. Here are a few of the instances:

About two weeks ago, I was driving home from work late at night and traveling down the main street of the town I live in. At one point, I passed three cars one after the other. As each car passed, I got an overwhelming sensation related to the passing of the car: The first was anxiety. I got really nervous and I actually felt my heart rate speed up and my blood pressure rose; I felt it get hot in my ears and along my chest. The second feeling was excitement, and the third feeling was depression, or a feeling of loss. I felt really sad all of a sudden and I even took my foot off of the gas pedal because I forgot that I was driving. My heart was sore, like I had just finished crying all night and I felt the need to help someone, but I didn't know where this new feeling was coming from or who I was supposed to help.

I am also able to pick up on feelings from people whom I do or not know. I can almost read their minds with it, but it always gets my blood pressure up and the yearning I get to help people out who are feeling bad makes me stressed out. It actually put me on medication for depression and anxiety.

I can be talking to someone and get feelings from them other than what they are talking about, meaning I can tell when they get distracted and I know what is distracting them, and they aren't looking away from me and they seem to be deeply engulfed in their conversation. I am extremely sensitive to my brother and my dad, surprisingly. I never knew why I always felt something was wrong when there was, and why I only felt in tune to them when they were feeling bad.

I can feel the energies of people. I can feel the energy put off by people into a certain situation, and I sense these energies by feelings that run up and down my spine and up the left side of my neck.

Some weird occurrences have been seeing things out of the corner of my eye, like the shapes of dwarves and people in two colors: Black and white shadows. One day I got home from school with my younger brother and sister, and I was standing kind of in the door way. My sister went ahead of me to the right and into our bedroom, and my brother was still getting out of the van. I felt someone pass me to the left; it almost felt like they brushed me on the shoulder or something. But I definitely felt someone pass and all of my hair stood up on end, and my heart palpitated or did something funky so that I was totally freaked out. I also have many dreams that end up coming true, or I share dreams. I have shared two dreams with my brother and sister and one with my dad, and one with my mom. Then, those dreams we have shared come true either in a realistic way or in a metaphoric way...

I don't know if dreams of angels can be incorporated into clairsentience, but I have had three dreams of the same angel whom I believe to be Gabriel. One was where he was speaking to me and I know that he was telling me something important, and that it was good. And while I can remember everything else about the dream, I can't remember what he said, only the feeling I got from his words. I feel like I'm not supposed to know yet, but that I will in time.

I need help with these occurrences if they make me clairsentient or if they are affiliated with being psychic in any way. They stress me out, because I pick up on everybody else's problems and then have my own on top of theirs. If anyone could help me overcome the stress and anxiety I am feeling, please help me with some info! I appreciate your reading this and I hope that you can help in some way!

i know how you feel. My psychic abilities, claircognizance and empathy and clairsentience have given me generalized anxiety disorder. And yes, you have psychic abilities. Welcome...:)
... Often, gabriel works with those into comminication and arts type careers...

Right, put simply, all the experiences you recognised, above, are individual little "wake up calls". The fact that you have aknowledged these occurences is a great big wake up call.

These things, feelings you have experienced, CAN be FELT by everyone. But "EVERYONE" doesn't really have the time or understanding to actually recognise them. (the feelings)

The "feelings" are always out there, in the ether (if you like) and sometimes people like you "pick up" on them.

Does that make sense?

So when you have picked up on them, in the past, they have freaked you out, because they mix and mingle with your own "feelings" (energies) and to an unskilled practicioner, become just a mass of un decipherable emotions. Ie; which belongs to whom? And of course, this can become a concern.

The fact that you are now AWARE to this, is your start. There is a long journey of understanding to travel.

Start firstly with yourself. That's what I meant by discover yourself first. Look within and start to deal, now, with any "issues" or "hang ups" from the past which may still be lingering around you as "bad energies". If you have any and can put a lid on them (closure) that will be a few less un decipherable energies in the mix. This makes it easier to pick out the more relevant and recent.

Do you see where I'm going?

Drop me an e mail, if you still don't get it, because this is a subject which could take a week and seven pages on here to explain!

As you can see!
Sorry for the long post!

Sorry, if I confused you.
Discover yourself and then follow the path that presents itself.
Meditation is a good place to start.
Will get back to you, hubby is pestering me elsewhere, y'know!?

Hi and thanks for your input! I was wondering what exactly you mean by wake up calls? Wake up for what? Or do you mean to wake up spiritually? I found what you were saying very teresting, but I don't want to believe something that I've just misunderstood...

Oh, and I knew there was something else...

Gabriel is of course the messenger, his message of late is "the wake up call"

When Gabriel sounds his trumpet in your ear to awaken you, there will be no ignoring it! He had this to say about pathways: "All, no matter what they do, may live their lives and perform their life tasks in the full knowledge and joy of their own Spirituality. For every task can be imbued with Divinity - with love; with compassion; with purity of thought, through the directives that may fill every action, every thought and every word in daily life with the Light and Love of the Divine Source. So the call is to your path, but your path is not necessarily a specific route. Your path is merely your way to remembrance of your own purity at heart - of the God-self, the Christ-self (or Buddha-self) within - and to the acknowledgment and recognisance that you are a spark of Light, a Divine Being and aspect of God himself. "
Firstly as Gabriel awakens us he brings us a "message" that will make us take a closer look at our deepest, innermost wishes and longings, and then see them for what they really are. Often if we haven't been paying attention to the first quiet messages, they may increase in "volume" until they have to come in the form of what we know as "wake-up calls". These may be what we perceive to be unpleasant or unwelcome events, such as near-death experiences; loss of close friends or loved ones through death or separation or other life-changing happenings or curious emotions/ feelings.

Wakey wakey! Lol!

Incidently, I definately think your skill is more outlined by empathy than clair sentience. Clair sentience is more being able to feel the presence of spirits than emotions. I believe.

The first thing I want to say Aine, is that if you took a moment to discover yourself and believe yourself wholly, I don't think you would be feeling quite so anxious with regards to your experiencing others feelings.

It can be very difficult, to filter through whose emotion exactly belongs to whom. This will come when a clear recognition of YOURSELF is established.

At the moment, I think the stress and anxiety is showing itself because your internal understanding centres are going...

"oooh, loads of emotion! Whose is it...? I dunno... Let's ask the brain...! Er excuse me brain are these emotions yours?,... Nah... It doesn't know either! Er, ok... Let's just dither about a bit more, and I know... Great idea!... Let's just throw it away!"

Haha, after that enlightning chat with yor energy centres, and hopefully your understanding of the matter?
You need to Re - frame. Look to yourself for a minute, before you look anywhere else.

Then begin whatever you need to do, when that bit is settled!
Love Linx
