From the research I have gathered, there seems to be two types of empaths; physical & emotional or mental. Then there seems to be sets of Degrees in each. I think I am an emotional empath, but I'm not sure since it just seems too common. Here is some info that may help; I am 27yrs old with many life challenges I have gone through that is usually very difficult for me to communicate with other people; especially the type who have the perspective mostly on the physical of this world. I feel surrounded by this all the time that I feel completely isolated... (because I'm in College full-time for my BA). I only have a week left, but I feel sad because I don't feel like I really connected with anyone in my class in the 2 years I been there.
I guess I should explain what I know I do have; I am clairvoyant, clairsentience,claircognitive, and maybe clairaudience? I see Auras everyday trailing of cars on the highway, trees, people, animals. I can see my own. This began about 8mnts ago... But I remember it happened a few times in high school, however being afraid I completely blocked it out. I have embraced more these past few years. I have had pre-cognitive dreams most my life and it has gotten stronger these past 3years. I've been able to tell a family member they were pregnant before they knew they were... But wasn't sure because they had 2 previous miscarriages and didn't believe it (now she gave birth to her). There's a lot of others, I notice when its with other people I have to have a "strong" emotional attachment to them & I will have a precognitive without trying. My dream (s) have also recently warned me about someone who tried to attack me psychically by trying to hypnotize me & separate my husband & myself. I have been dealing with so much this past year, but what I would really like to know is if I'm empathic? I believe I have always been, however because I have felt shut off from my parents as a child... And then my peers for not understanding who I really was, spiritually-in tune.
I'm a very shy person around large groups, however if you get to know me one on one & can open up. I love children, animals, and I daydream about trees and having a beautiful garden. I have set my whole career to help children with speech disorders because I knew helping others is the only way I could receive satisfaction. I find that most people don't open up to me, and I will spend some time trying to connect. I have a fear of rejection because I don't ever really feel excepted and I know I am so different. I use to be really good at giving advice, but I think over the years I have just grown accustom to my own family (husband & 2 small children)...so I don't try as much to become emotionally involved. I hope I don't sound cold, because its just that it really hurts when your a very positive person. People think I analyze too much, but I feel I just care too much. I have ALWAYS felt overwhelmed & Aware of my surroundings to the point that now I just totally BLOCK my classmates out. Or put another way, I'll spend time trying to connect to a peer next to me only to be shunned. Then if someone suddenly decides to talk with me it takes awhile to comprehend what their saying because I wasn't use to that stimulus. I believe I have naturally blocked people out (like a zombie)...because its too much stimulation for me to handle and any negative emotion I sense affects most of my day. Also, a psychic recently told me that most of my classmates think I'm high-class because I have everything together. I was really confused by this, because although I know I'm blessed I feel so abandoned by my peers? Can anyone shed some light onto this?
BTW--this is my 1st post & I love this Site!
