For those who have not read my story, Empath, let me bring you up to speed... I have noticed, only after my sixteenth birthday mind you, that I can control my empathic abilities, but there is something else now. I'm not sure what so I was hoping that some of you could give me some advice.
Ever since I turned sixteen in April, I've been having some serious issues with electricity and electronics of any sort. A good example would be the lamp on my nightstand. Whenever I lay in bed, the light starts to flicker uncontrollably. Now, I have tried several lamps, including those from other rooms in my house, and they all do this. Thinking that it was a short somewhere, I let that go.
But I've noticed it happening in other rooms too. The lights flicker and once, when I was fighting with my mother, a light bulb exploded for no adequately explained reason. Now, I'm not saying it was me, I'm just saying it was weird.
My computer always freaks whenever I'm on it, but not when someone else it using it. The phone rings sometimes when I pick it up, but there isn't anyone calling. Even my freaking microwave is tweaked whenever I use it, but it works for my other family members fine.
At my friends' houses, the same thing happens. Stuff freaks out whenever I touch it or am near it, but not when they do. So I'm curious, could I be somehow drawing this energy to me? Do I just not get along with electronics? None of this happened to me before my sixteenth birthday, so I have to wonder.
And now, I'm also seeing energy. Okay, so I don't know for sure if it is energy, but everything, living or electronic, has this strange white light surrounding it. It reminds me of an aura, but there aren't any colors to it. Just this white mist the surrounds things. I first noticed this with my cat. Then I started seeing it on my parents, my brother, and any person I passed on the street.
With some, the light is dimmer than others, but some things, and people, have so bright a white that I have to look away (I have sensitive eyes). My eyesight is perfect, I don't wear contacts or glasses of any sort. And again, none of this happened before I turned sixteen!
So, am I going crazy or is this some new talent I've found. I can still tell the emotions of the people around me, but it's quieter, like background noise instead of in my face. Any advice on this would be welcome. Thank you.
