Real Psychic Experiences

Empathy... Or Is More


I have posted here before and found the insight and comments very helpful. After some research and practice, I have come to believe I am empathic. I even learned about "shielding" which I seem to do automatically once some kind of energy gets overwhelming. Is this normal?

My next question is that I seem to have other psychic abilities I will recount several of my experiences to see if anyone can help me figure out what these are so that I can educate myself and focus on these gifts as well.

The first experience I'd like to share is a dream I had several years ago. I was sleeping over my grandparents house, and had a very real dream that there were several men, dressed in red hooded robes holding the passengers of a plane hostage with plastic knives. There purpose of being on this plane was to make it crash. When I woke up I recounted the dream to my grandmother (she just told me I was full of nonsense) About ten minutes later my mother called and asked us if the news were on, we said no and turned it on. The first plane had just crashed into the twin towers. I believe my psychic senses were telling me what was happening, being that I was dreaming this as it happened (even though some of the details were off, the situation itself was eerily similar)

The second experience is much more recent, a friend and I were heading out for a bite to eat. I suggested one place, until I got a very strong craving for a sandwich in which I have never had. Well after we arrived at the diner so that I could get this sandwich, my friend asked what I was going to order. I told him that I had this insane craving for a monte cristo. He then informed me that at the exact moment I suggested this diner that is exactly what he was craving. Well to cut it short I ordered the sandwich and hated it. Is it possible that I was sensing his energy so strongly that I actually craved what he was craving?

This has happened several times but not necessarily with food. I have finished peoples sentences, or blurted out something they were going to say, and only a couple times actually felt someones physical pain. And the only way I can explain these occurrences is that I felt there energies at this time. Other times I will know information that I couldn't have known, such as someones nickname as a child, or what someone will wear the next day. These feelings come to me in my gut, as if I have always known but that is impossible.

And last but not least, in practicing this empath ability I have played around with visualization (which is something that helps me determine someones thoughts and feelings.) Well sometimes I for lack of a better word force my energy into theirs. I can't really see what I'm doing, but I can FEEL what I'm doing. Sometimes it will alter them, such as if I put through my energy to pick up a pen, or turn there head and then they do it. Is this coincidence or what is it?

So my questions are-

How far does the empath ability go?

Do I have more than one ability?

What is this persuading that I do, through energy?

Any help in these matters is greatly appreciated.

That's great that you're able to do that. It helps others calm down fast and easy. Plus, you're using your abilities for them, not yourself.

thank you all for the great comments,

Amber121, since I am new to this whole thing, I really shouldnt be giving advice. But what helps me the most is to relax, and not try and force anything. I document any experience I have, so that I can look back on it. As well with the anxiety in crowded places try shielding. Very helpful excercise and I find it very relaxing.

Hidden_girl, I'm glad my story has helped... That's why I post, because each thing we read or share helps us grow. So I believe that is what this site is for, to help each other.

Winter_lily, I completley understand what you are talking about. If I have a friend/family member that is stressed or angry. I do exactly what your doing. I feel there energies and influence them to change. Immediatly following the exchange of energy they usually start feeling better, but for some reason I usually take on this emotion for a short period of time, I am getting better however at controlling that.

Be-my-tri14, I understand where you are coming from. But I do not believe that empathy is only limited to physical feeling. I believe there are different levels or stages. Mine for instance has always been emotion, and is just starting to lead into physical feelings. But while I am just going into physical feelings, the emotion has gotten stronger and I can influence others etc as you can see from my posting. And as far as your posting goes, I am not sure of any advice, that situation is something I have never come across with. But please try and post the experience and you can get more on the topic readers.

to scorpio88:

In answer to your questions:

My guess is there is no limit to how far the empathy can go. In my case, if I try hard enough... I can get not only feelings, but thoughts going through the person's head in real-time, sensory data (such as what they are seeing, at the time, or basically how it would "feel" to have their body- very weird experience worth another story)

Just based on this, I will say you probably have telepathy to some degree. Also, there is a term for an ability where a person can know things about an object or person... I think it is called psychometry, but don't quote me on that.

To Be-My-Tri14: if you would wait until Monday, they should open the site back up again, but in the future I advise not to post the entire story onto someone else's

I know this is your page, and I'm very sorry,... But I NEED to get my story out,... And there's something going on and it won't let me,... Again, I'm sorry,... If anyone can help me, please, comment after me,... I don't know if I am the only one who feels what I do, it used to be bearable when I was younger, then I met my sister, I can't say much because sometimes its not your secret to tell, there is five that we now of within our area, 8 diffrent gifts between five people, there is significant proof between us that they are all valid, some are more developed then others, and some of us are getting hurt because of that, my sister and I are two of this group, the bond between us is so strong that it gets very very dangerous for us to be seperated, we cannot tell our parents, and we live at seperate homes, her gift is one that takes energy, lots of it, and it can't be turned on and off, because I see energy (or what you'd like to call aura's) I have a lot of extra energy, and I don't mean jump up and down energy, I mean life energy, normally we balence each other out, she takes what I don't need, putting us both at a safe level, but because we have been seperated for 3 months now, she is so low on energy that's it's killing her, (no joke) and because I have enough for two humans, mine is litterally crushing my body, suffocating me (again, not kidding one bit) if you have any idea how to help us, PLEASE SAY SO,... We don't want to die at 16,... Another problem: one of the others, with the strongest gift of us all, had that bond like my sister and i, her, him, and I were all connected, we haven't seen him 2 years, his gift is gone, he see's, feels, hears, nothing, he has gone completely numb,... We have discovered that we all react differently to the separation, he, goes numb, i, puke my juts up and can't breathe or move, (we suspect that that's because my gift is physical, his is more sensory) my sister seizes and seizes sufficating her and killing/hurting her, from the inside out, (hers is probably the hardest and most terrifing gift to explain) so please if you have any idea how to help us get our friends gift back (we do NOT believe he's lost it; though he does) or how to help my sister and i, PLEASE SHARE,... (oh, btw, the others are uneffected because one is autistic, the other has just now stumbled across it, hers is VERY under-developed) please help us,...

I promise to all of you that what I am about to tell you is nothing but the honest truth-
I have not read all of these comments, but I have read your story, I'm not sure what to tell you, but I do think that "empath" is the wrong word for you,... I don't want to offend any one,... What I am trying to say, ugh, I'll just say it,... I have been an empath since I was 6, I feel whatever anyone else does in (at the most I can tell) half a mile to a mile radius, When I told my parents, they thought I was imagining things, any pain, or anything physically, I can feel,... All the time,... Within this past year, I have been working on emotions,... I won't bore you though,... I think what you've discovered is amazing, but empathy is the wrong term,... Please, if you want to here my story, look me up,... Because I need help,...

I have no idea how far the empath ability can go yet, but the farthest I have gone with it is changing emotions and taking away stress from people. After that they feel relaxed and you won't feel terrible after because you influenced the emotions for the higher good of that person.

You can have as many abilities as you want. You need focus, patience, meditation, patience, belief, patience, and the belief that you'll do something or someone some good with this ability you want. Focus and concentrate and meditate. I came from a family with low beliefs of psychic abilties and I changed my belief and gained psychic abilities as my family hasn't.

Take care and practice,

Wow I just read your storie and you actually Helped me! I never really imagined myself as an empath, but you have stories similar to mine. You might be clairvoyant too, but that's my opinion.

Ok, I have just recently discovered I am empathic as well. I always thought I was different and didn't know why I got tired a lot and I have a lot of those gut feelings about people. I get anxiety in crowded places and prefer to just stay home and I like my alone time. I also tend to some of the things Grant does, I'll be thinking of a movie or song and it will come on... Its really wierd. I can also sense evil off people and can tell who's good and who's not. I always wondered what the deal was and just passed it as stong intuition but now I wonder if there's more since I've learned about this empath thing. Is there more? I absolutely love the water and I love to be around fire as well. I love to be outdoors at night when its quiet bc I can feel at peace. Any ideas?

dreamgurl, thanks so much for your comment. It let's me know I'm not the only one. Well as far as fairly advanced, I'm not sure. You see these abilities I have always had but presumed it to be normal. So I never tried to take things further, the stage I'm at now is how I can remember things always being. I would like to learn how to improve. Also I read your profile, and noted that you can control wind. This may be off topic but when I'm around fire I feel at ease. I feel a connection with it, I don't think I can control it, I have tried with like a candle but I really think there is something there... If you have any suggestions please let me know. Oh p.s you also mentioned something about scorpios that I found intriguing if you could enlighten me a little bit I would be very appreciative.

Hey! Okay... Pertaining to your questions... The empathic ability goes farther than you would think. It differs for different people, because everyone has different auras and energies. You seem like a fairly advanced empath, not exactly 100% completely over-the-top, but you still have quite a few gifts in that area. However, you do have more than one ability. It sounds like you have a little bit of a few things. The knowing stuff you shouldn't but felt like you always have is slightly common though usually not very strong or evident... I don't know the scientific term, but personally I call it intuition. I get it too, so I know where you're coming from. Another gift you seem to posess is a little bit of precognition. Precog is also fairly common among psychics but still very useful. Precognition is the ability to see parts of the future. And the persuading thing... That's a common ability among empaths. I've always been able to do that, but just recently found that I am empathic. It's not exactly a form ofempathy, it's more... Putting your thoughts or desires into oters' heads. This is also more common with Scorpios;-). We sound a LOT alike, so feel free to email me if you wish.

Good Luck ❤

I've read both of your entries and I have to agree that the stuff that you're going through is similar to some of my experiences. I can't really say that I can see the energy I make with my hands (yet) but I definitely feel it. I've tried just messing around with it and sometimes I feel like I'm actually putting extreme strain on my mind. Often, when I have conversations with people I somehow know what they are about to say. The same thing goes for the radio and television too. I'll just be thinkin about something random and a little later, there it is. Its so different and hard to find people around you who actually understand what we're going through. But I believe that when we do finally give in to the fact that we are, That is when we can grow to our full potential.
