Recently I woke up and felt as if something was different I felt ill and also quite faint. I walked downstairs and had my breakfast, and was reading the newspaper still not feeling quite 100%, and then I put my stuff in the dishwasher. Unfortunately I got into an argument with my dad and at the peak of the argument I felt like I could sense his emotions and also some of his thoughts. As soon as I sensed it however it went away (as did also the bad feeling). Startled by this beautiful and unusual discovery, I went upstairs and tried to find that "sense". I did.
I thought about the argument and what the rushing feeling of my father's emotions running through me, and then I could sense them. It was as if I was experiencing what he was feeling at the moment.
After 2 weeks of experimenting I discovered that I was able to sense people from both close and also afar, I was able to sense how they were feeling and also had an "inner sense/inkling" as to where they were and/or what they were planning to do.
Although new to the positive side of this ability, I recently however have experienced a bad side, I not only can sense there emotions and directives but also can pick up random peoples emotions, and also directives. Because I wasn't prepared it stuck in me and took me several hours to lose the connection that was made.
I'm finding it difficult to cope with this new ability, and I don't know if I am the only person who has experience in this ability, however it may look all nice in the films and media but from my experience this is real and not amazing.
