Do I Have A Gift Or Am I Just Perceptive?

 

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?

The years I have existed I've experienced many different things. I can remember back to when I was a baby, before I could even physically roll over. I was shocked into seeing from what I saw. I could read people from the age of 2. Later on in life my mother, would wake me in the night, tell me things and then ask me for the answer. People have told me their troubles and I somehow know what is the cause, but when/ if you tell people they blame you. I have had premonitions, that have come true. I have told others about them, before they happened, I was laughed at, but they came true. I usually don't tell people, but knowing all these things and always saying to myself later I knew, and carrying a burden which is not mine, sometimes it is easier to offload. Others have called me a witch. When My father passed away I was in a different country, and when I returned 4 years after, visiting my brohers house, my fathers spirit came to me. No Words, Just a silent movie message. Through meditation Budah has given me little visions which have also come true.

Your just like me I have a gift but I can't really tell I'm doing like 100 different psychic things I'm confused but try to find out if any of your family members like parents bothers sisters grandparents aunts uncles cousins etc. Because that's where a lot of it comes from if you can't find anyone you are probably the beginning of the tradition or something like that I believe you have a gift of telepathy!
GOOD LUCK!

i understand the emotion thing completly, but I'm also not sure if I have a gift or not actually just a few minutes ago I was talking to a friend that cares a lot about me and because of some circumstances we can't exactly be together. And he said something to me and imediatly I felt like my heart was breaking and before that I had been completly happy, so I asked him if his heart was breaking and if he was sad and he said yes, I don't know what it means, things like this seem to happen to me alot...

I know exactly what you mean, it is hard sometimes. And then you have to struggle thinking "Should I tell them?"

Sometimes you've got to trust your gut instinct but it sucks when you get it wrong or someone won't listen 🤔

HI Lalie! Thanx, that's a good idea. 😁
There's a problem that I bet it happens to you too. If you feel something is going to happen, how to make people believe you?, I mean, we want to help them, but how do we know, first, if it's true and second, make the others to believe it 😕

Some people are simply very sensitive to the energy changes around them, may this be emotional or physical, I think this is a gift.

Personally, I have empathic tendencies, I get hit with emotions that are foreign, I can tell when they are not my own, they feel cold, different.

But, as with all things, practice makes perfect. When you are calm and relaxed, try picking up messages and emotions in other people, and see if you can define between different people. It really is a useful ability to have, use it and develop it:)

All the best x

I really don't think I could tell you, I'm so new to this myself. Do you think you're an empath? I guess you should try talking to another empath or posting a story so other people can help you like the wonderful people here have helped me. 😁
You could try just watching one person over one day and seeing if you can tell when their mood has a subtle change. Its what I've done a few times.

Hope this helps you

I'm only 16... And I've never been able to tell if someone is pregnant. But I can tell how a person is feeling as soon as they enter the room and I can tell over long distances too (aka across the continent). I was talking to one of my friends that moved to Canada, and I could tell he was upset and in pain. I also knew that he had a tumor growing in his neck and that it was becoming cancerous... I can also tell if people are lying and when they're telling the truth. I'm not sure exactly what that makes me... Buuuuuut it seems as though you and I are in the same boat lol. You can tell if people are pregnant and I can tell if they have tumors...lol:x

It sounds to me like you're an empath Lallie. Have you tried to expand your gift, or practice with it? I'm not an empath, so I wouldn't know what's best, but I know a lot of people on this site ARE, so try to contact them. You seem like a very cool girl. I love the UK! Lol...

Good Luck. ❤

Lee- its only been one week since I came to accept my abilities. I'm 32. Meditating is kind of like "spacing out" for me. The last time I did it I wasn't ready for what I experienced. Come to find out I can astral project:)

Hmm, I guess there is some significance there.
So basically to learn to focus it more, I take awareness of my own senses and pain, learn off that. If I may ask, what would meditating do to what I can already do? And what would I do to meditate?

Lee-for me, these body sensations predict that someone I know will have an injury or ailment.example: all day wednesday my right arm was tingley. I came home and told my wife... That night she was yawning and she somehow ruptured her eardrum. Spoooooky lol. I knew and foretold it would haPpen to the right side of the body. I knew that was significant

Thanks for the tips XtjrX, but what are they meant to symbolise, let's say for instance I get an ache in my stomach while sitting with my friends, does it mean that I have picked up on somebody elses emotions of pain or that or does it suggest that something about somebody isn't right, if I have contradicted myself there please tell me.

Lee, pay very close attention to your senses. Tingles? Fleeting aches or pains. Be aware of your peripheral vision. Once you truly accept it, things get very otherworldly very fast!;)

Lalie1709, The last bit where you went on to talk about you being able to feel other peoples emotions and that you know how to cheer somebody up even if you don't know them to well, well while describing yourself there, you described me aswell. I am exactly the same. If its possible I need help aswell. I would like to know if there is any way of focussing it more?

The same thing happens to me! I don't know what's this "gift" and I don't know how to use it 😭. I want to help people with my gift but I don't know how... How do you do it? 😢

Sometimes being perceptive is a gift!

From reading the part about knowing people's emotions, you could be an empath. The best way to gain knowledge about something is to read about it. So get in this thing we call internet and suck it all in!

Good luck.

Both.

You're incredibly perceptive, but that's not all of it. It's a useful skill.

Just think about separating your thoughts and emotions from those around you. Know whose thoughts are whose, and how you can work with it to your and others' advantage.
