Where to start... Well I just discover that there is a name for what I am, Empathic. For years I just thought I was crazy. I always just knew what people where thinking or feeling. Which to say the least made me uncomfortable.
But when I was about 14 I started seeing things or attracting things, usually dark things. For example I went with my friends to "The Tracks" and something hitched a ride in me. That night I was unusually tired, like I was drained. I went to bed before nightfall. Which is in itself very weird, because I was an night owl. I had a nightmare in which a Shadow man was chasing me in the graveyard by the tracks, I felt the evil coming off of it in waves. And no matter where I hid in the graveyard he'd always found me. When I finally woke up someone or something was stroking my face, as if to say "how pretty". There was no one else in my room.
Since then I have been seeing Shadow people. So a few years later I put up a mental/spiritual wall to keep everything out, but now I don't know how to get it down. I don't know how to reach my full potential as an empath and whatever else I am be. And I want to know why ghosts and shadow people were attracted to me. I need answers to these questions because my 7 year old is just like me, and I don't know how to help her or protect her. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
