So, I'm very very new to all of this - well, at least I believe I am. I've felt this way for at the least one year now, but I guess I should explain my story a bit first.
I am now sixteen years old, but at the time I was fifteen, maybe fourteen. I have a friend who I communicate only via text of some sort, weather it be texting, IM, e-mail, et cetra. I had always been interested in the paranormal such as far as powers go so I decided to go look up some information, but there seems to be very little out there - or, well, I just don't know where to look.
I really can sense peoples emotions if I know them well enough. Well, not only if I know them well enough, but sometimes somebody who I know will just sit down and I can tell - not only by physical expression, but by pure sense how they are feeling. This, I found to be, is empathy - but as far as I know, everybody has a bit of empathy in them.
Recently I've been rather enthralled, shall we say, with peace and understanding within myself - I meditate and try to 'shield' myself with white light. But there's so many questions that I have about my empathy. I can sense how people are feeling merely through text such as IM, though I'm a very visual person. I can easily get into somebody else's perspective and I have been trying really hard to meditate and clear myself of negative energies.
So, I guess what I'm really getting at is - could someone just explain to me what's really going on? And, most of all, how I can strengthen my... Ability. I can't see or hear spirits, read aura's, help others, or do anything else, simply sense emotions and judge people based on what my gut tells me. Would you help me, and explain just how I can start making myself stronger? Any practices or websites you go to to learn? Or could anybody just swap e-mails with me so that we could exchange story's and learn off each other?
Thank you so much for your time.
Merry meet, merry part.
