I'm 22 years old, and ever since I can remember, I've known I was different, but didn't until fairly recently get a clue of what it might be. I was looking around on someone I knows site, he's a psychic, and while listening to a little audio snippet, he mentioned empaths. I didn't know what it was, but I had to look up the word right then, it just struck me. While I was reading about it... It was so much "me." And just today he did a chart for me, and confirmed that I am an Empath, an Empath Medium, and a Dream Psychic... Or can be if I develop the skills. He feels that I'm coming into some of my abilities.
I've always been able to tell if a person is... Say... Lying about their mood, or just plain lying. I've always "just known." I can walk into a room and if there was just some sort of conflict, I can feel this strange discomfort. Like I'm intruding. And while it's only happened once, I think I've felt a spirit. Ever since it happened, I've regretted my reaction because I wanted to know what it was. Just lying in bed one night (in a house where my parents had repeatedly seen a 'ghost'), and I just felt a presence, like someone was suddenly there. And I screamed, and it was gone.
Then there's the silly things; just things that seem like coincidences but happen often enough to make me wonder. Like knowing what song is going to come on the radio next, or always happening to look at a clock when it's 12:34.
As I said, this person feels that I'm coming into my abilities, but honestly, compared to a few years ago, I feel like I've sensing less. Some people I just can't read, or that it's just happening less and less.
My reason for writing all this though, is that I want to know what I can do to develop these abilities. If anyone has any advice, I would love it. I worry that I've somehow shut it off or something, and I don't want that. This is a gift, and I want to strengthen it.
