Last April I was attending a convention in Denver CO. I spend a lot of time in the horror panels listening to ghost stories, discussing fear and other subjects. From my first year at the convention there was a man that made me nervous just being near him. This year I talked to him and learned he was a psychic for one of the paranormal investigators in Denver.
Likewise, a friend of a friend that I have only met twice made me cautious without provocation. I learned later that he can see and communicate with the dead. I feel the same way every time I get a card reading from a professional, or randomly in the store when someone passes, like I'm standing there naked and defenseless. I visibly become agitated, as others have pointed out.
I try to keep my senses to myself but I wear my emotions on my sleeve and have an easy time taking on the feelings of others. I can feel when someone is a bad person to be around, know when someone is telling the truth, or spot a false person from a mile away. I can sense dangerous situations and when things are in the room with me. All things I have heard connected to psychic abilities. But I feel so easily nervous around psychics without knowing them. I have never heard of this before. Is there something I can do to calm and shield myself? I really feel like I have no control over myself. That I'm broadcasting my insecurities on a loud speaker. I'd really like to tone myself down.
