Yeah, a physical empath. I know the traditional definition is someone who can feel others emotions, but I do it with their physical bodies. I've done this since I was a child, I can remember feeling it when my father was going to come home with a migraine. Fortunately, this also let my mother know, so she could prepare the room for him, or rather us. This is my earliest recollection of it, it was from before I started school. Since then, I'd learned to tune it out, so much so that it became a background feature of mine, and those times that I incorporated what I was feeling unknowingly, it would take me a bit to figure it out.
As I got older, I learned better how to focus what I did, and I was doing fairly well at it. I took Reiki lessons, not because Reiki was better, but to learn the focus of it.
By the way, I don't really consider myself psychic, I don't get pictures, I don't really feel energies, etc, I just seemed to know what, where, and how. Which freaked some people out when their knee was hurting, and I'd put my hands near their arm. But their knee would heal quickly.
Anyway, that's the basic background story. What I'm writing about here is this, since I took the Reiki lessons, I've gotten into 3 car accidents, and that has totally messed up my back. So now, I can't feel the energies at all, the 'knowing' thing has stopped, and I can't focus enough to meditate properly because of the chronic pain.
This could be a test, but it wouldn't be the first physical test I've faced.
I'm putting this down here, not to appeal for help, or added energies, most of you, myself included, have probably already done this unconsciously, this circle tends to do that. But rather to add this as a focus for myself, you know the old saying, "Sometimes it's best to just talk about it".
I honestly have to say, that I miss that aspect of me, I kind of feel like I'm walking around crippled.
Now, I'm going to end this tirade, but before I do, please understand, that it hasn't gotten me down and kept me there. It's just something else I have to learn to get along without, which will likely lead me to another talent.
Happy energies all.
