Real Psychic Experiences

Emotions, Death, Dreams, Empath?


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

You can be born with it and it can develop. You don't have to be born with it, because its already there, we just need to adampt to it and use it.
You are an empath. Many people are interested in ghosts although the majority of them tend to be more psychic then people who aren't.
The only advice I can give is to read up on things like astral projection, psychics, and spirit guides and try to talk to yours. Its a wonderful experience.

-Use your gift well-
Blessed be

You are empathic like me. Rocknroll300 was right. The reason for you getting the bad emotions is because that's what they concentrate the most on. When someone who I'm close to is going to die I know before they do. I was 7 when I first did this. I was at school and Well I ended up feeling really sick and I got this weird uncomfortable feeling in my stomach but I had no idea where it was coming from. I can think about people I am close to and know what they are feeling and if everything is okay. Anway I started concentrating on everyone I could think of and they were okay. The last person I concentrated on was my baby brother. I ended up blacking out in class. When I got home I told my mom but she didn't believe me (now she does) later that night he died. I did the same thing when my grandparents died and I told my dad the exact date he was going to die when I was 10. After a little while I became afraid of it. I thought I was cursed well now I appreciate it. It seemed to have gotten stronger now. I can feel physical pain of others around me. I think we are born with it and as we get older it becomes stronger. We also learn how to control some parts of it without even trying.

You are definetly a empath with feeling peoples emotions. I think you feel the bad emotions more because people usually focus on them. If the emotions ever feel like they are bugging you, you could put up a psychic shield. Hope I have been of some help.

Seeing ghosts is easy when you know how to do it, fasination is the first step. I was born with only 3 of my abilities, I was very interested on seeing auras, I had my guardian that helped me (Dark wolf).
If you want to know me just look through my page.
Anyways that ability of scencing if people are alive or not... Is very unique and you telling when your pet will die is very interesting to me. I think you had a bond with you pet.

Well Good luck!

I like your post tulo22 - moving and honestly written. Thank you for sharing.

You are definately an empath and sensing missing people's situation is part empath,sensitive,psychic, out of body and mediumistic.

I was born with your gifts which gradually unfolded, cliched or not, like a lotus over time.

Your sensitivity is very strong... You are not alone - be encouraged to keep developing...

Everyone here has it right... Embrace and hone these gifts. I know what you mean by the absorbing other people... That's not an easy gift to come to terms with as it tends to seem like a threat to your individuality... There's two immediate solutions... One:surround yourself with truly great and likable people, in this situation the "imitation as the sincerest form of flattery" will be the case, and you'll eventually see the same from them! Two, use this as a tool for fast effective communication in establishing a mind frame... But always try to only make certain mannerism your own... Tuning into someone else entirely is never really the case, it's more like you temporarily change channels to an impressed path in your mind, understand it's place and you'll know how to effectively add it to the other channel's you have programmed and ultimately you'll expand the content of your inner channel to the really good stuff!

❤ Much love

My situation is like yours. Last October one day I got really anxious and couldn't stand still. Not to mention I couldn't stop crying. I didn't know what was going on so I called one of my friends who I've talked to about empath before and asked her if anything was wrong. She told me that one of our friends grandpas had died. Not to mention I seem to be on same thinking terms with a lot of people like I'll say the exact thing they'll say and it's not just close friends it's even been people I barely know soo... Oh and also I've always been like this. I just didn't realize until a couple years back... Good luck:)

Life and death are transitions where the soul goes on it journey. It is how I explain what I see in people. Dreams are glimpses of the possibilities what the future may bring or windows of the past life. For me I would astral project when I sleep go to places I never been to. I dream of time far away. I am being clinical it makes me easier to rationalize. Ghost are to me souls who haven't reach the next step in their soul journey. Some do so out of Karmic debt but others are here by choice for good or ill.

I remember when I was in grade school a teacher read the class a story of a Ghost. I had nightmares about the soul of a boy who is known as Choculate Boy. This soul of a young boy at the time we were the same age. I heard many other stories of ghost but I could see the face of the Choculate Boy. The ghost of this soul would been classified as poltergiest. The Choculate Boy killed many souls that would have helped him. It was more than story because I sensed a connection to this soul.

To confront my fear I would have to find this soul and do something as exorcism. I have no desire to cause any harm.

You have been born with the ability to be an empath. You shouldn't be scared by this, but should embrace your power!

Everyone is psychic--only to varying degrees, and some people choose to dismiss it as coincidence when odd things happen, no matter how many times they do.
Some people seem to be born with very strong psychic ability. Others develope it later in life. Some lose their strong abilities when they get older and feel the pressure of society to "conform" and "be normal", but I'm not sure anyone loses psychic ability entirely.
Hope this helps!

tulo22, you sound like me when I first decided to look into my own abilities, I've had very similar experiences to you, as far as being a sensitive child, I even was told by a psychologist who I was seeing for anxiety and insomnia that I was a sensitive person and he didn't mean like crying he meant to my environment, also when my pets die which is been happening to me a lot lately, let's see just the last 4yrs I have lost 3 horses, 6 dogs, 3 cats, and every fish, frog, or any other creature in my aquarium. I know something is up... Some were old some young. Just crazy thing impossible things happen, and if I have a sleepless night before hand I can almost guarantee something bad has happened. All of my pets but my 1 cat lives with my family I am 24yrs old and moved out of the home 2yrs ago with my boyfriend. Even not being in the same household I won't sleep!

It does sound somewhat like empathy, especially the whole absorbing people.

The looking at pictures and feeling things, I think is more of psychic clairvoyance, kind of ability, For me being an empath is all about energy, and being able to perceive it and sense it, while everything does have energy, unless the missing person touched the photograph, I wouldn't call that an empathic ability, your probably getting messages or impressions from the actual energy of person, so that would be more of the mediumship. You probably have both.

I've had my abilities all of my life, but they got pretty extreme when I was a teenager,I've written a few stories maybe reading some of them would help you tell the difference, just click on my name.

I've also had interests in ghosts and other such things, but there are many people who have interests and aren't psychic but they are thrill seekers. And like the adrenaline rush of "hunting" ghosts. If you have the experiences you have had you are going to be interested in such stuff, just be careful that you know what you are doing before you do something like ouji, (not suggested to do) or I dowse but even with that you need to know what you are doing and have "good positive" intentions otherwise you could start having real problems,
The more scared you get the scarier things will get.
I will actually be accompanying a ghost hunting team in June, I want to try and face my fears and not be alone while doing it.

Hope this helps if you need any other help or and questions I have my e-mail listed on my profile. I still have lots of questions myself so I always like to hear others experiences.
