Something happens to me, although I'm not sure exactly how to explain it, when people go into my 'personal space.'
It seems that the boundary for my 'space' is approximately a twelve inches from my body. I am extremely ticklish, but if someone's hand is even just in the space, it feels like they are actually touching me, which leads to people being able to tickle me without even putting their hands on me. Even if I don't see them about to poke me, like if they are behind me and I'm not expecting it, I jump because I can feel when they enter my 'space'.
For some reason, if someone is in my space (feet touch under the table, sitting fairly close to someone) it feels extremely intimate and personal. Mind you, this isn't in a bad way like as if I just don't like people being in my space. It's actually like I get a mini high when someone brushes into my space.
My empath abilities change this experience a little, because if I sense negative feelings on someone, I feel it more strongly if they are in my space, the same being with positive feelings.
I don't know if this is necessarily something psychic, but does it relate at all (I'm an empath and have frequent precognitive dreams)? I just wasn't sure, because I asked my mum about people being able to tickle me or hurt me without actually touching me, and she said I've been that way since I was little.
Any comments or input?
