I just found this sight tonight. I was looking for more info on "Sensitives" and after a little reading, I realized what I have experienced is more that of a so called "Empath". I get all the normal feelings with people, that comes strong and overwhelming, but I also get feelings from places, structures, rooms, etc. There is a area in my apt. Complex that always makes me feel scared and sad. Somehow I know a woman was raped there, but I don't know when. I feel areas with high spirit activity. I feel the mood of animals and can tell if they are happy or sick, etc. Just accepting what I am is hard. I am Catholic and wear a lot of crosses. I feel more protected with them on. I get sick very easy with bad news or around too many negative persons. I can tell if someone is lying to me too.
I have experienced these things all my life, I just did not know there was a name for it. I have watched episodes of "Physic Kids" and I am amazed at how the talented and gifted they are. I wish I knew what all this was a long time ago but better late than never. I am most whole outside and around nature and children... Something pure and calm about it... My mom always called me a "sensitive" child but I don't think she even knows how much so.
Oddly enough, I have suffered from my own health issues since I was born. My mom always tells me that I have not one, but a football team of Angels helping me and watching over me. I have had literally so many near death experiences where I should have died and didn't that is very very wild. At the last minute, something always protects me.
I feel if I am supposed to live on this Earth, with this "thing", I might as well use it to help others... I am big on volunteer work... I love helping others so that part is easy. The part this is not easy is WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE... AND WHAT AM I...AN EMPATH, OR SENSITIVE and HOW DO I USE IT TO HELP OTHERS AND NOT LET IT HURT ME?
