Recently I started trying out my empathy. Turns out I'm actually good with knowing others emotions. I don't even have to see the person, I can just think of them or text/IM them and I'll know how they feel. I can also tell when someone is lying, which helps me a lot. Though for the past few days, I've been seeing auras in my head. It all started in acting class when my student teacher was talking, I caught a flash of purple/violet surrounding her. I then looked at my friend sitting below me and saw a reddish pink haze around him. After I got home I looked up the two colors' meanings, and the descriptions fitted my teacher and my friend perfectly. The next day I tried again with my English teacher and two of my friends. I saw the color yellow for my teacher, pink for one friend, and baby blue for the other. I repeated the search process again, and once again, the descriptions fit. So I'm thinking maybe this is an addition to my learning empathy.
The shimmers/sparkles I've mentioned before are becoming more frequent. I see a little half a centimeter sized ball of light (color varies) about 5 or more times a day, and each time, it's a different color. I'm beginning to think someone or something is trying to contact me, but I'm having trouble talking to it. I've tried meditating and channeling, but it doesn't seem to work. Sometimes when I see it, I get frustrated and say "Do something already!" and I'll hear a noise or get a cold spot. I want to find my spirit guide, because I think that may be what the sparkle is. Others have told me that their guide found them, but I'm having trouble communicating with or finding mine. The sparkle and cold spots are the closest I can get.
If anyone has any advice on how to find my guide, or how to improve my empathy, I'd love the help. Thank you.
