I have always been very sensitive to my surroundings. At some points so much I end up becoming overemotional. If a family member I am very close to walks into a room or touches me, I get a brief flicker of how they are feeling. I can read most subtle emotions by looking at someone but most times I can only feel their general emotion. At one point I was able to pick up a person's direct thoughts. I have researched possible reasons for this and I have found that I could possibly be empathetic.
But here's the twist: I have been able to pick up on my friend's abilities as well. One of my friends, Em, is clairvoyant. When she and I use the Ouija board, my powers as a medium heighten and we are able to form a strong connection with the spirit we are talking to. Em experiences visions and has a very strong energy flow. So strong that it has actually caused me pain on several occasions when I try to move it from her to me or an object.
Another one of my friends, Nikko, can see auras. After a while of being with her, I discovered that if I focus hard enough, I can see a glimpse of a person's color without having any idea of their mood in the first place. Every time I tried this, I would ask Nikko for their real color, and I would end up being correct. Sadly, my ability as a medium or aura-seer always dissipated after they left. Although my ability to manipulate energy has stayed with me ever since I learned about Reiki Healing. I want to figure out what it is I can do. Em has told me that I could have the ability to adapt to other people's powers, but she is still learning about these types of things just as I am. So I would prefer an opinion from someone with more experience on this topic.
I believe that being able to put a name to what I can do will help me control it or at least be able to learn more about it. If anyone has any idea what this is, or has any way to help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
