Finally, a site where I can share my secret! I'm 13 and can feel other people's emotions (I think that's called empathy?). I can also hear, feel, sense spirits. I don't know who to talk to about this because my parents wouldn't believe me. My best friend is the only one who knows, but he doesn't REALLY get how it is.
When I feel people's emotions, I feel them for myself, so it is a bit complicated separating someone's feelings from my own. For example, I was talking to my friend who was acting all happy, almost overly-happy. I could feel the sadness in her and was confused. I asked her about it and she said that her grandma had just died, but she was trying to cover up her sadness. There are many other experiences I've had with this ability, though I don't have enough time to write them all down here.
I can feel if there is a spirit in the room, though I only sometimes ever see them. Sometimes, I will hear them whisper to me advice that later on helps me. I've felt them play with my hair and once felt a hand on my shoulder.
Unlike many people on here, I want to know how to enhance these abilities. I've heard meditating helps, so I will try that but is there any more ways to make them stronger?
Please leave comments below if you have any suggestions for me. Thanks!
