Feeling People


I am 19 years old. Since I can remember, I have always been a person who is affected by other people's feelings. When I walk in a room, I know how every person is feeling and I feel all of their moods. When I get really stressed out, this is a horrible feeling because I can't turn it off. If my mother is upset, I am upset. If my sister is angry, I'm very angry. There is always chaos in my head; people's moods don't go away until either I fix their problems or they deal with it themselves. It's very frustrating. My first question is whether anyone would consider this a psychic ability or just me being very susceptible to people's moods? When I tried to explain this to my Dad, he told me I was what he called an "Emotional Amplifier" or someone who takes the emotions of others', internalizes them, and then amplifies them to everyone else tenfold.

My mother, I know, is psychic in some way. But she has some history. Her and her cousin used to play Ouija board in her Grandmother's house during summers and they were haunted for a long time. Since then, she has been visited by many ghosts and claims that she can see people who are very ill. She's told me that she can see a greyish aura around people who have cancer. The thing is, she doesn't know they have cancer until a long time after when either they tell her or they die. She says she knows there are a bunch of spirits that follow her (sometimes they show themselves, sometimes they don't).

I truly believe that if I sat down alone in my house and mentally invited spirits to communicate to me, they would come in a second. I believe that I have that mental power. The thing is, I am too unbelievably scared about seeing or experiencing a spirit that I have never let myself be "opened up" to them. But I feel this aching in my mind that wants me to just sit there and communicate even though I push it away. I am a Catholic Christian and I believe very heavily in the demonic forces that demons have. That, beyond anything, would be my worst nightmare, to experience that.

My last question is whether or not these things seem to anyone to be psychic? It troubles me from time to time. I often have to push things out of my mind and I pray every night for God to protect me mentally as well as physically because I am scared. When I walk up the stairs alone or I enter the basement in the dark the first thing I think of before I let myself think anything scary is "God will protect me, God will protect me..."

Am I just scared? Or is this real?

Thanks, this has all helped. What I can say about this feeling I have is like a "nagging curiosity". Like, I feel like there is me inside this very thin bubble that is protecting me (and my mind is putting this bubble up around me) and just outside of this are all the spirits and energies that want my attention and although I've never been contacted or seen a spirit, I feel this urge to let my protective bubble down. At the same time though, I'm too scared to do it. Does anyone understand this feeling? 😨

I'm a Libra and as far back as I can remember at the age of five, I told my dad that in two weeks his dad was going to pass away, and in two weeks he did pass. I believe that I'm an empath cause I can feel how people are feeling and it has become very overwhelming for me that I stay at home most of the time, but sometimes it doesn't help, cause I still pick up on people's feeling. Just today I picked up on someone's feelings that I felt that I was high on drugs, so I called them to see if they were getting high and the told me that they just smoked a joint. I do believe that I might have other abilities such as seeing into the near future and I do hear a voice speaking to me as well, which is so over whelming for me. I've read some of the comments from others on this site that they to have stated that they are Libra's as well, could this have anything to do with it?...I feel when someone is lying or telling the truth and when I call them on it they think that I'm crazy, which is something that I have been dealing with all my life. I'm 49yrs and it just seem to be getting more stronger that my own children sometimes don't want to be around me. Is there anything that I could do or someone to help me with these abilities?

okay youll be the second person I tell this too. But listen. I'm trying to start knowing people around my age who have ability. There's far too little psychics I know personally. And I'm already 18 soon so I figure its time I start knowing others with some form of psychic ability. Anyway, if your interested. It be cool. Okay wel see ya. Good luck with things otherwise.

yeah your an empath. You can sense and feel others through emotion. I know how that can be, however I'm not as nearly as open emotionally as some are. But I know it can feel like your head is going to explode and you just want to scream and have something explode. Its just way too much energy. Wel... Like I said I'm not as open as most so I don't have to deal with it as much. But when I do... I somehow get rid of that emotionall build up through music. Ha I don't know why, but I feel a connecction and a lot of build up goes away. Id suggest you start looking on cleansing yourself as I usually tell people about this.

I have this same experience. I can feel others emotions as though they are my own, and as you know they can be overwhelming. I'm also very good at reading people's facial expressions and I see auras. I often have had to walk out of a room if there is too much negative energy. Sometimes I drive past people on the street and I can feel the evil thoughts of those who want to do harm to others. I always see a darkness around them... It happened to me today. It is hard for me to go to homeless shelters to volunteer- because of the pain and darkness that lingers there. When I was your age it used to really affect me. I would get scared. But I too prayed for guidance. Whatever you do don't ever try and connect with spirits. If they contact you-like as a ghost or in a dream- that is one thing, but don't go looking for them. You will regret it... You have to learn to control your gift and try not to be vulnerable to the dark spirits that will try and pull you in. Just keep praying and God will give you the guidance... And asking for St. Michael's intersession never hurts either... Good luck to you.
