Sensing Energy


I don't know if I should be worried, but I've been able to sense energy since I was 10, around 12-2:00 a.m. I'll be in bed, or on the computer, or somewhere in my house and I will sense it. I can sometimes tell what direction it's coming from and see aura, but there is no color its just like weird heat waves type things near my bed or door.

My friends can sometimes sense this too. We get worried and confused. When we sense the energy we get a tingle feeling and we shiver uncontrollably. It's not because we are cold it's because of the energy. The energy does not have a bad feeling to it it feels safe.

One time I did sense a very strong energy and my friend did to. It made me really scared, I had never sensed anything that strong. I have sensed bad energy that makes me nervous and made me want to get away from it, but nothing harmed me. The energy just didn't feel like something safe like the other energy dose.

I really need to know if anyone else out there gets this feeling and if so what do you do? What can you do to help me? Please help it's getting really annoying and freaky! My friends and I really want to know what we can do about the energy we've been sensing.

I've had experiences similar to what you explained.

"One night I was walking to the bathroom to get my medicine and I felt some dark presence in the hallway I wrote it off as my imagination thought it was nothing to be concerned about. I walk back into my room get ready for bed and everything. I get into my bed and just a couple of minutes later I felt that dark presence again but it was a lot stronger.
I freaked out I backed up against the wall on the side of my bed and started at first in my head saying "get away from, don't touch, stay away" I kept doing that for a while and then it got to the point where I was crying and not quite yelling the same things " Stay away from me don't touch me!" I was really freaked out... I knew (even if only subconsciously) that whatever the thing was it meant to do harm. After awhile it seemed to have gone away."

From my story that is yet to be published on the site...i'm waiting for it to be approved...

I can also sense whether a spirit/entity/etc has good/bad intentions... If it has good intentions I feel safe and protected... If it has bad intentions I usually try to get away except in one instance I was half asleep and I was attacking something that seemingly wasn't there. At least in the physical sense...

Starlight22, the time between 12am-3am are called the "witching hours". Paranormal things usualy happen in that time period. That may explain why you and your friends are senseing energies at those times.^_^

hello there!
Just read Starlight22's story and it sounds just like what I experience! I feel presence too, usually late at night. I would be all right for me to just feel it, but in my case I feel that something is touching me. It is just a light touch, usually on the the arm, toes or shoulder. Feeling presence overall does not feel scary, but when it does touch me it freaks me out. Once after the touch I heard a man's voice saying hello in my head. That freaked me out a lot and I had to go to sleep in my mum's room. When I am not alone it doesn t touch me but I can feel that it is still there. Mentally I asked it not to touch me as it scares me, but it s been a week now and 2 days ago it started to touch me again. Had anyone experienced anything similar? I would be very grateful to anyone who could suggest how to ask this entity to stop touching me? I m an empath and sometimes clairesentient.

i've also had a dream where two spirits were trying to teach me Kedo (swordfighting) I went with them but I wanted to go home because my watch said 3:01am and then I woke up and when I looked at my watch it really did say 3:01. The energy I sensed in my dream was the energy I usually sense around my house. I want to know why they were trying to teach me kedo and what they want PLEASE COMMENT IF YOU HAVE AN ANSWER FOR THIS 😨

oh and one question and I want to know what you guys think. I can release my energy and it makes the spirit presense come faster or makes the presense stronger. I want to know if it is a good thing to do this or is it a bad idea to do this 😕

I can understand your situation, because at one point I was much like this myself. I could also sense energy, and sometimes, it was frightening, especially when it was poweful.
Even though you can not hear spirits, they can hear you. So when you feel the energy, try to talk to it, like you have been. If you are scared of it, or it seems dark, you can tell it to go away. This usually helps, and they usually do go away when asked.
If you want to be able to communicate with them better, you should open yoursel up to this ability.
I have cats as well, and they just don't seem to care when there are spirits around. I'm not sure why exactly, maybe they just don't feel threatened by them.
I hope that this helps.

people keep telling me to comunicate with the spirits but I can't hear them I can feel them and sense their precense but I can't hear what they say but I do talk out loud when I do sense them just to see what I can hear but I never hear anythingand I have a cat and guinea pigs in my room and the don't go crazy when I sense the energy why? Don't animals not like spiris or go crazy when they see them? Can the spirit make it so the animals don't sense them or what?

Dont worry you're not alone. Ever since I was like maybe 9 or 10 I have always been able to sense spirits and energy. It wasn't until this year that my senses have gotten extremely stronger. I have always been able to sense an energy or presence. I thought it was just my intuition but I found out that I have a stronger intuition then most people. It always gets cold or I begin to shiver, both physical and mental, or my breathing gets heavy and my throat gets clogged. Some spirits are good and won't harm you but some I get a negative feeling about. I normally just see shadows or energy, never any detailed faces. I can always predict things and 95% of the time I'm right. You may have psychic abilities but I'm not a professional. I can also sense peoples feeling or emotions, I can analyze a person as soon as I meet them.

im only a teen and never thought I was different from anyone else, I honestly thought everyone had feelings and saw things like I had. Recently I was watching 'Psychic kids' for the first time, and realized I am different, and its ok, now I keep everything in a journal, I have always liked ghosts, I have seen one to a little boy, (jeremy, hence the username) he had showed up in my science class, the last day I had seen him, he held my hand, my hand was colder then the rest of my body, then he said by and I haven't seen him since, but I can sense energy all the time, there's a man that watches me at the end of my hallway, and then in my closet or by the door, ill wake up periodically at night, to feel his presence. I'm just glad I'm not alone 😁

I agree with Rilan, your ability is natural and good. Don't shy away from it, try to improve if and incorporate it into your life.

I may be able to help, since energy sensing and manipulation is one of the first things I learned how to do.
Now, what you seem to have is
A: late hours
B: heat wave-like sightings
C: strong energy creating shivers
This is all evidence of spiritual activity. Trust me, once you get used to it, the shivers will go away.
Spirits have been known to be seen as shimmering heat waves instead of actual human shapes, and also the spiritual activity gets stronger as the night grows deeper. (it's got something to do with the abscence of light or somesuch)

Now, quite simply, if you feel the energy and it doesn't feel evil, feel free to try and talk to it, ask if you can help. Mostly, spirits just want something done before they can move on.
Before you do this, though, I suggest you look up whatever information you can about shielding yourself. It will likely not be necessary, but it's always a good idea to be protected.

If you sense the evil energy again, or anything like it, do not talk to it. Ignore it, or will it to go away, and again, shield yourself firmly.
There are certain things you'd best just steer clear of.

If you're interested in learning about this gift and improving it, look up online information on Energy Transforming and Sensing.

Good luck.

I have never sensed energy that strong, but sometimes I have little intuitive feelings about people or places. I just close my eyes and think "This place hasn't been occupied for a long time" or "The people here were really casual." Once, my stepmother was cleaning out a house she had rented to someone. They trashed it and ran away. All their stuff was still there. I went inside and felt a horrible negative energy. It just felt so sad and pitiful. I wanted to find the lady that had been there and comfort her, but she was long gone. I looked around and discovered two candles that drooped and hung limply in a sad way. She might have done that to them to express her emotions.

There was another time that I was in one of my stepmother's rentals and I felt sad negative energy. It felt like drug addicts and bad people had been there. I never confirmed that, but my stepmother said someone had died there.

I rarely feel energy other than with emotions. Yours sounds more like physical or etheric energy to me.

Maybe something bad has happened in your house or maybe there is a negative spirit. Maybe you can contact them and help them move on. I don't know... I haven't had experience with that kind of spirit. Try investigating the place where you feel it. Energy sensing is a useful ability! Keep developing it, and try not to be too freaked out. Like all other psychic abilities, it is natural and its good to be special.
