I've recently discovered I'm an Empath and that I can see auras, but I'm wondering if I'm something more, too.
Ever since I was a little girl, I always felt like I was being watched. I didn't pay much attention to it then, because I was young and thought it was a normal feeling. I try to meditate because many people on his site say it helps, but I get that "being watched" feeling if there isn't some background noise. I also used to hear people call my name and whisper things to me, but when I asked my mom if she said anything, she'd say she didn't. Sometimes, she'd even be sleeping. This hadn't happened in a few years, so I thought it was gone, until this morning.
I had woken up twenty minutes ago, but I was still laying in my bed. I heard my baby sister playing with her dad (we have different dads). I even heard him having a conversation with my mom. Ten minutes later, I noticed he wasn't there, so I asked my mom if he left already. She stared at me oddly and said that he hadn't come yet and that he was on his way here. I told my mom about what I heard, and she said that it was probably the news, but the voice sounded exactly like my sister's dad's voice.
I also remember one time in third grade, it was recess time, so I was walking with my class to the playground. I had the feeling of Deja Vu and had a "vision" of myself walking to the playground in a yellow and white dress, which is exactly what I was wearing. I tried to brush it off and have fun, but I kept thinking about it.
I also see spirits sometimes. A few years ago (maybe three or four), I was walking with my mother through a cemetery to visit my stepmother's grave. She had died a year ago and we were going there to pay our respects. On our way out, I was getting into the car when I saw a man wearing a red t-shirt and silver shorts jog through. I asked my mom if she'd seen him, but she said there was no one there and that it was probably my imagination. I didn't think any more about it because we were, after all, in a cemetery, so it makes sense to see spirits there. Another time I saw a little girl standing on my porch. I only saw he back of her, but her hair was dark brown and in pigtails. She was wearing a blue shirt with red and white checkered straps, and blue shorts with red and white checkered on the bottom. In fact, she looked a lot like me when I was younger. She was only there for a flash, and then she was gone. This happened about a week ago.
I also met this woman, who looked like an older version of myself in a dream. She told me she was one of my past lives and that she wanted me to find her friend Jared's reincarnate so they could be together again. That is the only time I've seen her. Last week, I also started having lucid dreams, sometimes even two a night, but now they've stopped. Can anyone tell me why this is?
This is a bit odd, but sometimes I can understand my cats. A month ago, I was alone in my house. I was cleaning up the house when my cat Meatloaf came up to me and meowed. I got this mental picture of a box of dry cat food. We had a sort of conversation for a while, and then I got the cat food for him. After I gave him the food, I did a double take and wondered how I could understand my cat. I don't know if this is connected to anything or not, but animals have always been drawn to me for some reason. My friend has this dog named Max whose the type of dog who'll bark at anything. The first time I went over to my friend's house, I walked through the door and Max started to bark, but then stopped halfway through and ran over to me and started licking me.
In the past week, I've also become very sensitive to light. Even in my house, the lights bother me so much that I put my sunglasses on, but even they don't help very much. I also can get really sick all of a sudden. Last week, I was really excited because my mom said I could walk to the beach (which is ten minutes from our house). I walked there and stayed out for two hours. When I came home, I started to feel really sick. I got a fever and my skin felt like it was burning, but it felt cold to the touch. I also had a really bad headache and couldn't tolerate any light at all. This has happened more than once, and it's not like being drained from Empathy; it feels entirely different.
Another weird thing that happens to me sometimes is when I'm writing. I'll be in the middle of something, and then my handwriting will change and it feels like someone is writing for me instead. I'm not sure if that means anything, but I felt I should write it anyways.
Has anyone had similar experiences? Am I just overreacting? Any help would be graciously appreciated!
