I'm 14 years old and I've always been very perceptive. I would finish people's sentences and answer questions I was sure they were going to ask me next, even people I'd just met. There have been several occaisions when it's been so accurate or random that it's uncanny.
The most memorable time was when my mother asked to speak to me and my younger sister one day, saying it was important. Out of nowhere, I just said that I desperately needed to talk to her but she said it could wait until later. I was absolutely certain she was pregnant and I planned to tell her to take a test. I had no reason to think of it at all, but I couldn't be more convinced. It was completely out of the blue, just the minute she wanted to talk to us. She told us that she was pregnant and I said that that was what I wanted to tell her. Neither my mother nor my sister beileved me, but I knew that I had thought of it just when she'd decided to tell us. There have been more similar to this although not regularly.
I'm also pretty good at sensing people's emotions. I can tell when someone's uncomfortable around me and I can usually tell why even if they try to hide it. I can tell why someone's happy and what will bring them down. Knowing people's emotions so well, I find that I can use their reactions to change their mood slightly. I can usually know, even if I don't know that person very well, what can cheer them up and what can calm them down, even though everyone is so different. I'm not sure whether this makes me an empath or not.
I'm really new to all this and I'd appreciate some help since I'm not entirely sure whether I have a gift or not. Has anyone else had some similar experiances?
