Energies, Auras, And Old Places


First, my name is Ivy and I'm a clairsentient thirteen year old.

I don't know what these are called, or if they're even an ability. I'm guessing it's just... What everyone has a little?

I have this thing about old places. Or old objects, I don't know, I'm not even sure if I have things about OLD things or they share a same characteristics that I'm missing.

God...I don't know how to explain

I'm sensitive about the energies in old places. Like historical sites. Really old ones, or traumatic sites. Not museums though, everything is normal and I don't get anything. I get these sad, vibrating, sometimes painful feelings and auras in old sites. Or just any old resident houses. The atmospheres all different sometimes, but mostly sad.

I remember Harper's Ferry (it's this civil war site before civil war started) so clearly, that huge place! My family went there in a small vacation or something, and we were walking around, going INSIDE to those, those aura-filled houses (ugh), and that whole town gave me auras and (sometimes) headaches. I didn't tell anyone about it. I don't know why. I think maybe I thought everyone HAD the sad feeling. I, I don't know. I thought everyone had the old, misty, feeling from old houses. Going through all those exhibitions in each houses and the old objects and old videos about what happened in there, it was just all so hurting and... Mixed auras. I wanted to get out in middle of a video, because I could feel what happened in there. John Brown, the abolitionist guy's house.

I remember being surprised asking about 6 months later that visit to my mom and my sister how the visit was kind of... Bizarre and getting an answer that was 'I don't get what you're talking about, it was fun.'

This is awfully long, sorry.

And one of the other site that I remember was, my mom and my sister and I, again went to an old site that we didn't know it even existed, right across a building near our house. I remember being interested at first, walking around the old town and old libraries and churches, because I usually like old historical sites, (really, I do.) Then we went close to this tree covered, old house. There were feelings. My mom and sister was trying to open the door, but it was locked. I wanted to leave and I kept saying to them 'let's go, it's not opened, see the open hours.' And kind of begged to leave that house. I don't know why, the feelings weren't that bad this time. I got 'loneliness' all over. I remember being really nervous around the house, looking around.

So...that's it. Finally. There were few others, but not as important or special as these two. Thank you for reading to here, I bet it was boring. Haha.

So my wonderings are, why am I feeling these things and what are they (if there are words for it) called? Empathy?

Old places can develop sentience. At least I think so. Everything has energy and a field. Because of a like energy field eventually things pick up a sense of 'self'.

How else could you feel a sense of loss after you lose access to a favorite place forever? It's like a friend dies. I cried when my grandparents old house was sold.

A place absorbs the memories that were in them. Energy leaves imprints everywhere.

If you place importance on something, it becomes important.

I haven't...
But I'll try:)

I've learned a lot of things about myself though. I can feel energies and emotions not just in old places but anywhere. I tried a lot on my friends too and guessing on other people's pasts they're feeling.

I really like old buildings. I especially like the really old stores with the worn wood floors and old counters and shelves. I had never thought of this until I read your Post. I feel like these building have lots of personality I guess and never looked at it as if they do have an actual personality. You sparked and interesting thought in me. I will have to see if I can feel these buildings as if they were living breathing souls and see what happens. Maybe you are doing this in a way. This probably sound pretty silly, but can you sort of make friends with these places or something like that? Talk nice to them and change the way they feel? Just a thought.

Your clarsentience is so strong that it can pick up residual energies acutely. Have you ever tried to test it on old pictures and objects, even by touching people? (I've heard some people tell me in the past that they can see and sense what the person was doing moments earlier). It's not all that rare, but not everyone has it that intense. (personally I don't have it, but know people that do.)

Ohh, okay...
I didn't think of empathic. Usually I don't feel my friends' emotions so painfully or... So strong, so I thought I was more clairsentient.
Aura? Mmm, like atmosphere? I'm not sure, I couldn't choose another word for it.
Haha, thank you, I've never thought about spirits... Anyways thanks for the suggestions. 😊

My guess is that you could be sensing energies that exist/ed in these places. You specifically mentioned trauma sites? It could be that you're sensitive to emotions and/or energies. I guess that would make you empathic?
Btw what do you mean by 'aura'?
Otherwise, maybe you're sensing the emotions of spirits who still hang around there, who knows. That would make you empathic/clairsentient? Other thoughts?
