My name is Garrett and I'm 19 years old. I'm pretty sure I'm an Empath. I know when people are mad or happy or upset, but it is only when I'm with a person I'm "in tune" with (is that normal for an Empath?). Like I can kind of feel it, I can tell when others are hurting, but I don't feel their pain. I've been told that when I'm around people normally feel better, or just plain happy. It started around the 7th grade when I started to notice it. It was subtle at first, I don't feel large groups of people, but a more one on one type thing I feel a vibe about them (that's the best way for me to explain it). If you are an Empath could you help me out or give me any advice?
I was wondering though, is there any way to sharpen my ability would meditation help at all? Also, I've been fascinated with fire for awhile and I'm an Aires, so I don't know if that has any importance, but I was wondering is there anyway I can learn pyrokenisis or is that like a "you have to be born with" type thing, and would meditation help with any of this? It's all very confusing and I'm very new to all of this, I'm not scared of any of this just worried that it might go away if I don't learn of to control it.
So, in a nutshell any advice from an Empath or Pyrokenetic would help me out a lot!
