Wandering Soul Looking For Answers


I'm a male in my early twenties that has for as long as I can remember been dealing with the feeling of not belonging. I don't have any normal human interactions with the people in my life. My friends and family all love and try to support me but I can't find comfort in their friendship. I often times find myself alone in my room meditating and trying to sort out the things in my head.

I have had a lot of strange occurrences in my life that has turned me to this site and after reading some of your stories decided to ask my questions here. So for that to work I suppose to anyone reading this you would like to know more about me.

At times I can sense what people are feeling and know what they are going to do within minutes of meeting or talking to them. It may not happen right there on the spot but if I sense the person is up to no good they usually aren't. I have steered clear of befriending people because of a feeling and have almost always made the right choice as they later did something that would have gotten me fired from my job or in trouble with someone somewhere had I been associating with them. My friends, those who I haven't distanced myself from, have started to take note of this.

One of my friends brought me to a proclaimed psychic who, without divulging any of my information, told me she knows that I can read people and have a strong spirit dwelling deep within that I haven't fully accessed yet and that it's an old spirit who's been around a very long time. It freaked me out. At an earlier point in life while dealing with a patient in an asylum, the patient made similar remarks while adding a comment I will always remember. He stated to me that "I see you old soul, and the ones who follow." His comment was made very randomly as we were talking about his day and nothing anything supernatural. I don't know what to make of any of this.

I hope that someone out there can help me try to understand what may be going on. It's not affecting my life horribly or anything I just think its time I understand this better. I go out and do normal things a guy my age would do but always find myself reverting back to seclusion from time to time. I believe it has something to do with the way I feel like I can sense peoples emotions, their wants and needs without them telling to me anything of such matter. I've been thinking perhaps it overloads me at times and its my way of recharging myself. I want to know if there's something more to me then I understand right now. I've always felt different. Like I'm in the wrong time, been refereed to as being wise beyond my years, and that I just don't generally belong. It's not just a stage as I've felt this way stronger and stronger, as the years pass my whole life.

Not sure if you still have access to this site but I'd love to hear how things have played out. Experiencing a similar life has brought me to this post, hope you've found peace and more knowledge as to what and who you are I am on the journey myself right now.

Look at this, it is the same type of thing, the human mind can block out pain, if trained right can be as effective as the people on tv demenstrate.

Emapth is where you not only comprehend what someone is feeling, but having the mental ability to feel it in first person.

Psychologist do research empathy, and some even explain to patients that what the patients think is a mental instability is really the fact they can not only relate to another person, but feel the emotions they have.

I am not trying to be snide here but I would like to see the articles as this sort of thing is not exactly mainstream knowledge.

*Empathic ability is now recognized by science.*

Really? It has? Do you have a link to a credible scientific website that will support these claims?

You are most defiantly an empath. This can be very difficult to deal with, especially in a situation where emotions are at a high (such as a funeral)
Meditation should help you keep your emotions your own. You might even want to see if you can get a talisman of protection to help keep out other people's emotions unless you open yourself to them.

As for the comment about "the old soul within you" I personally think this could be in regard to your spirit guide. You might want to try talking to him/her. I also thing your soul itself could be old. This means that your soul has been reincarnated from an early time (thousands of years old)
I've been told I act older than my age as well. I'm 14, and most people think I'm act like I'm already an adult.

Hope this helps!

Blessed be

Empathic ability is now recognized by science. Surprised me.

I have heard that some empaths have the ability from a very young age, and sometimes get very good at blocking it. And blocking them selves from relationships and friendships in the process. I don't see to much wrong with that if it doesn't bring you unhappiness. If such is the case it is probably good to look for answers though. You never know when someone might get through your defenses and start some very confusing emotions running around in you. Life has a way of bringing things into our life that we don't expect when we least expect it. It's part of our experience in the mortal world.

You know "xGazardielx"...lots of people feel like they "don't belong" (like myself) but I am not sure that it is overly healthy to pass it off as being spiritually advanced.

Perhaps it is better to examine how you feel you are different as well as understanding that just because you do not follow the status quo doesn't indicate that you are an "old soul". This is a common thing that most psychics will tell you... That you're an "old soul" or that you have some sort of ability... It makes you feel good but it is not based in reality.

Like you I prefer to be alone and find no real enjoyment being in crowds nor do I feel compelled to seek out friends.

It is not indicative of anything other than simply being introverted. I deal with others when the need demands but I am simply happier by myself.

Does that mean I am an "old soul"? No.
Does that mean I have some sort of hidden ability or quality? Nope.

Do I have any abilities whatsoever? Nuh-uh

I am not trying to be mean or anything but Psychics have a huge sheet of stuff they love to tell their clients because it is based on "cold reading". Just like horoscopes, anything these people say can easily be applied to anyone at anytime.

If you need time to yourself to recharge then do so... I do it too... Lots of people do. There is nothing wrong with that and if you believe you can read people then study up on it by all means but don't rely on a psychic to tell you things that are said to practically anyone that passes their doors.

The feeling of not belonging is due to your highly developed soul keeping you detached from the vanities of this world. The more enticed and in love with this world you are, the more difficult it is for your spirit to grow.

I would say continue reverting to seclusion to keep your spirit healthy and strong.

You display very strong Empathic abilities, but they seem to be running amuk, I would advise trying to look up way to control it. I know very well what you feel, but I've subconsciously reigned it in through my life, now I'm trying to get back in touch with it more.

I must agree with Rashidah on the Empath point. You 'feel' others emotions/intentions and your reactions to them are 'guided' by what you feel.

An 'Old Soul'... This is very possible, in another 'story' I went into great detail about how I 'understand' our pre-mortal life. It is possible that your 'soul' has been through the 'veil' before and remembers things from 'the other side'. This may expain why you feel different, like you 'belong' in another time and that you are 'wise beyond your years'.

Meditation is a great way to 'de-stress' yourself, to let go of all the 'feelings/emotions' of others that you have picked up on... There are ways to 'sheild' yourself as well (though it seems you are 'dealing' with things quite well).

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. There are many on this sight that can offer advice that you may find helpful.

I know exactly how you feel. Sometimes I tend to seclude myself meditating. That might be good. It helps me to get back into touch with reality.

I believe that you are an empath. And a pretty good one from what I have read.
