Since I was young I was able to see things that others could not. I very often amused myself with watching shadowy figures walk about a room. I was never able to sleep alone because I could sense things in the room.
I have always been highly sensitive to others' feelings and having the ability to sense if something is wrong with someone, outside of the normal cues. I have also been able to sense emotions in rooms.
As I got older I was able to see a glow around people that formed the shape of their body. Some people call them auras, I always just assumed they were angels.
I have always had a heightened desire for the justice of others though I rarely speak out. Recently, I have been able to predict the gender of a pregnant woman's child and have had dreams predicting their gender. I have also had a higher prevalence of seeing people, in color now, out of the corner of my eye or clearly but when I look again, they are gone.
I have learned over the years to not share these things with others, as many are not accepting or don't understand. I now tend to shut out as much as I can but it never seems to leave me completely. I have learned to live with it. Thankfully my mother is open to anything that I share but at times I do feel like no one understands. If anyone has had a similar experience, please let me know.
As I read some of your experiences, it gives me hope that I am not alone with my experiences. Any insight on what these things could mean or be would be great. I've never been to a psychic but am curious what they would say.
