Am I An Empath Or Psychic In Any Way?


I am a 17 year old girl and all my life I have known that I have been different and that I feel different. It runs in my family. My Grandma's sister can see people auras and know if they are sick and dying or if they will die soon.

Although I seem to have gotten some of this gift. Now me, I seem to have a thing for numbers. Like in the 5th grade once. My teacher was assigning numbers to names for partners and as soon as she wrote down number 6, I knew instantly that it was going to be my name next to that number, and sure enough it was. Another experience was my sister and I were playing guess the number. She said what number am I thinking of? And without thinking I blurted out 15, my sister then went pale as a ghost because it was right.

These happen to me all the time but recently I was in the car with my mom and I asked her what day were we leaving for Christmas holidays, She then replied "We are going to leave on the..." and during that time I had a strange feeling and I blurted out "the 22nd" We said it at the same time. These aren't the only times, sometimes I know what people are going to say and I say it with them.

There are many things that I can do. I can instantly feel what other people are feeling just by looking at them. I can be in a public area and feel weird and uncertain, as well as anxiety. I can always tell when someone is acting or lying to me, it's like I know what they are feeling deep inside, I feel grounded in this situation. When I see someone crying I immediately want to know what's wrong and comfort them

This story really freaked me out. During this summer, I was going to my friend's house in Kelowna and I was really excited for it, and unfortunately (like all trips I get really excited for) I got sick. And while we were at her house I wanted to be healthy so bad, I wanted it so much that I said "I would much rather have my (time of the month) than to be sick" I wanted it so badly, that the next day I got my (time of the month) and a couple days later I was starting to a lot better. And usually I know when the time comes for me to get my (you know) and this time it was a totally shock. It scared me on how badly I wished for it to happen and it did.

I do indeed have many other stories but I'm afraid that it will take me a while to write them all down

From all this, do I at all have any kind of powers or am I an empath?

Sorry for poor description it is late.

I have dreams that have come true I usually guess what people are going to say before they say it... When it comes to cards I will shuffle them and guess 2 cards and when I check the deck those two cards are always together nomatter how much I shuffle whatever cards I guess will show in the deck together. I really want to get in contact with my spirit guides but its getting there.

I don't know if it relates to your dream, but 475 is an area code in Connecticut.

can you tell me what the numbers 475 means? I just had a dream and I hate studying numerology. My husband is the one with the degree from NC A&T in physics and mathematics but he won't study the pyschic realms, so I've just got his textbooks and the internet. Numerology is just not my subject. If anyone can tell me what that means I'd be really happy. Thanks

Your story and abilities almost match mine exactly, and I've been looking around here for a little while for someone else who had those. I've only been able to feel emotions from my close friends and (strangely enough) from some tv shows or movies. I'm not sure about the chest part, but I also cannot remember my grade school years very well, and I think I might have a variation of the aerokinetic ability you talked about in another comment. I'd make a motion in one direction during a beanbag toss game, and the bag would miss up or down, depending on which way I moved my fingers. It was kind of funny, and no one noticed.
Btw, this is so long since the submission page is down again, sorry 😢

thx trini... I really needed outside opinions... One other thing is that I heard empaths can transmit their emotions to other... I have never done or tried to do that... How does that happen... I mean to say how can I do that.

Hi my name is Juan. The submission page is down, and I'm in need of some advice.
I have reason to believe that I'm an empath, but I don't really fit the empath profile. Like most empaths, I can feel the emotions of others, I can tell when someone is lying to me and know why they're lying to me, I can read someones personality with just a few minutes of talking to them, and I'm really... Vulnerable to the sufferings of people. However, I feel I don't fit the empath profile because I have heard that empaths are constantly being overwhelmed by emotions, especially in crowded places. Yet, I do ok in crowded places. I feel that I'm some kind of selective empath because I'm only vulnerable to negative feelings, like suffering, depression, and pain. I remember the first time I visited a big city, which was santa monica, and I saw the homeless and the suffering of the poor through the car window as we were entering, and I quickly started to panic... I wanted to go home because I couldn't deal with all the suffering I knew existed here. Another thing I find weird is that my chest is my like my emotional reciever, because that's where I receive the emotions of people, that's where I get the reads of someones personality, or the read of an area I'm in. Is that normal... For an empath if I even am one. I mean, I feel like my soul lies in my chest or something, and that my soul or whatever goes inside people and gets to know them and then comes backs and "tells" me what kind of people they are. Also, I'm 19 and yet I have a hard time remembering my youth... Because all I remember is being confused all the time, like I didn't have full control or understanding of who I was, and I was also very emotional lol. And last, I think I may be able to heal, but I feel stupid if I try. I think this because my hands are always warm... They feel like when you go outside and the sun is just right and it hits you with that nice warmth on your face. But I feel stupid because since I'm mexican american, all my family is very judgemental lol... Like I can't go up to a cousin or even an uncle and ask them if I can try to heal them... Becuase they would think I'm crazy. I really need help... I need a mentor, someone to tell me what's going on... What should I expect to come, because I really have no one to turn to, and keeping this thing to myself is kind of driving me nuts.
If anyone can help me in any way, or tell me what's happening with me please contact me... I would really appreciate it. My email is nunez14cali_guy [at]

hi, I have recently come into contact with my spirit guide... I was helped by her to open up my emotions and learn to feel again and I became sensitive I could actually feel her touching me... She now says she might think I'm a clairvoyant and calls me extremely sensitive, I dream things that are about to happen and get deja vu when they do, I actually feel ghosts touching me... Can someone tell me its not just in my head and its real and that I'm really a clairoyant or have some ability of some kind... I can't see visions or anything like that so I'm confused as too what really it is, just in my head or really there?

I have experienced things similar to yours... My sister and I always know when someone is lying or hiding something. We don't know if we're true psychics though.

I have the same thing happen to me when I walk in places emotions come rushing at me from all sides it is kind of unnerving I will lose my appetite some times when my wife and I go out to eat when I feel other peoples emotions I can feel if someone is upset or if they (I know this sounds strange) are guilty of something it is overwhelming as for the numbers thing your not alone I do it to. My wife and I when I started figuring out what was going on with me would play the guess the number game and needless to say she won't play any more she thinks I am cheating somehow but you are NOT ALONE you will figure it out and that is where the fun begins.

I have had feelings similar to that, but very spaced apart. As for the uncomfortable feelings in public, that can be a normal feeling. I am Enclaphobic, which is fear of crowds, and I am always uncomfortable in public, with slight anxiety, and it matters not how large the number of people there are. You may not be phobic of crowds, but that doesn't mean people don't feel that way in them. That part can be very ordinary.

Im 18 female and I have always felt that I was different since I was very young (elementary school). No one in my family really is psychic that we know of, but I have deja vu alot. Enough to make me notice. I'll sing a song or remember a movie and it'll be on a few minutes later or within days. When I was in kindergarten I noticed that there were little bits in the air & covering everything. I asked my teacher if there were little tiny peices in the air that made up everything. Surprised she said yes that particals of matter made up everything and asked how I knew. I told her I saw them, she told me to get glasses. I still see them, and when I focus enough I can see tiny little orbs sometimes. I can face a stop light and feel exactly when it will change. I finish peoples sentences a lot and sometimes ill see white hovering above my hands/arms. I usually walk somewhere with a lot of people and get jittery that's hard to control, very anxious. Sometimes I can feel that I'm being watched and I calmly turn to face an empty space directly as if there's something there. Am I psychic or am I just imagining that I might be? I'd really like to know, to know that someone else disagrees or agrees with me, because although I'd love to believe I am I'd like another's opinion. Alot of things are confusing me and I really would like some answers.

well you could be an empath. Definitely. I can control my body too. My friend calls it hyperawareness. For some people certain things are easier to guess than others. For you, its numbers. For me, its colors.

Yep, psychic. It's a little upsetting how much confusion there is on this site about this. As soon as they get the 'new topic' thing fixed I'm going to give a shout out to everyone; for now replying to everyone will have to do...

I'm a psychic too, one who has been lucky enough to find a teacher. I have learned that my lifepath (destiny if you will) is me teaching everyone who is likewise gifted. Soo, click my alias and send me an email and we can get started if you want!

I can sense things, too. When I was younger, (currently 16) I used to see colored balls of light. I have Deja Vu often, and have chilling premonitions.

By "generalized psychic" I measn you can see the future.' And this is filling in the extra space needed.

You're Either a telepathic in a way or slightly a "generalized psycic", or what the public thinks of them. Just wierdos who see the future and forecast your death with the crystal ball.
