Feeling Energies Of Those Around You


I would like to start out by saying that this does involve something that might be classified as a haunting but I'm not being "haunted" per-say. I just believe I can feel them in close proximity to me.

Ok, so basically I have always had a keen sense for knowing when someone was sneaking up on me. When my mind is clear, and I am rather relaxed, no one can sneak up behind me at all. I always feel them. For instance, when I was in school - as laid back as I was - it was always easy for me to sense someone's presence anywhere in relatively close proximity to me. Back then, I would say that the closest I remember feeling someone was about five feet. It's not that far I guess, but still gave me enough time to turn around and surprise the would-be surpriser. If that makes sense.

Anyway, about sensing others...Today, funny enough, I walked out of my bathroom and went to the kitchen to get a drink, and I felt a strong presence in my dining room/living room area. I looked around, but didn't see anyone or anything so I continued back to my room. Without telling me, my girlfriend was hiding out in the dining room, waiting to surprise me but I never passed where she was. In fact, I wasn't even within ten feet of her. So, I thought that was interesting.

Finally, even right now as I type this (but mainly when I am home by myself and walking outside of my room) I sometimes can feel someone near me. It looks at me, wants my attention, and then I don't really feel it again until another day or even as little as ~five hours. I don't know what it is, and I apologize if this is a little too much of a haunting. Just thought I'd share. It doesn't feel like it's a malevolent being, just someone who maybe passed over. Maybe a family member?

So, I guess my final thought should actually be a final question. Is this something to do with being psychic? Or is it just everyone's ability to be able to feel other people's presence? Thanks in advance!

I have the same powers as yours! I can feel other people's energy
For example:When i'm relaxed at my room and the other family is at the living room... I can feel every muscle they move... If there's someone coming near me I feel them even if I can't hear their footsteps...but,that doesn't happen outside as much as it happens at home... I don't control this power... It just happens... No one can ever sneak on me! I just feel their energies...

Adaryn! I must say that I can usually pick up on people's emotions. So, I am assuming in the future I might be able to pick up on that of a spirit's emotions? I could just be good at interpreting body language and don't know it - thus giving me a sense of knowing how someone feels and I think it's a psychic ability when it's not. 😢 If it is a psychic ability, I don't necessarily feel anything when I sense it near me, just a relatively spooked feeling. Usually, I believe it is a basic ability to sense energies but it's such a dull energy that I have doubts sometimes.

Some days I don't know whether to think it's real or I'm just crazy. Also, thanks too to the other answers thus far. Appreciate it!

What you are senceing is energy from other people or spirits or possibly even angels but if its not angels yet trust me you all will soon. This is not a bad thing your doing it will slowly pick up if you let it like I can pick up on peoples emotions around me with out even looking at them but its not always fun for I can pick up on the pain to an there bad emotions. Lets just put it this way it is a gift given to us so those around us don't have to feel alone just like this website...

Fireheart I have to disagree with you. I think that if you can sense the presences of people, philosearcher, then you can probably sense spirit as well. If you feel as though you are being watched, it's probably because you are; in other words, you might be clairsentient. I wonder if you can sense emotions and energy of spirit as well?, or just their presence?

Not so much, Even though I have a huge possiblity of being Psychic, Most people can do that. We all have a little bit of instinxce in us to feel a creep on us. That has us jerk dramatically. Allot of people I know has that kind of of sense. And Especially the ghost sense. So sorry to dissapoint you but not really. Maybe in the future you'll start seeing a psychic ability inside yourself though, and this might be like level 1 beginning, but I can't say I know to many who have that sense and became psychic.
