I have read a lot about being an empath and I am still not sure if I am, maybe you guys can help me out. I will tell you about my background, ever since I was a baby every one told me I was very emotional and sensitive. I have always been able to feel other peoples emotions but mostly the bad ones. And also I can mimic other people exactly kind of like I absorb them. Also a few times I have been able to look at pictures of people who are missing and get a over whelming feeling if they are alive or not.
I don't know what any of this means and never really took it seriously until recently I was feeling very ill and shaky and I was having really bad nightmares one night and I knew something was wrong, the next day I found out one my pet had passed away. This has happened 2 times to me, does that mean anything? I am really confused on what's happening to me some one please help.
Also I have always been interested in ghosts and spirits and any kind of magic my whole life and never knew why? Does that mean any thing? Also my mother has told me that my godmother was a very spiritual person and also very very emotional and sensitive to emotions and that she always did yoga or meditating.
Are you born with this or does it form over time?
Some one please help
