I already posted something about a week ago, but this time I will be asking for some help or opinions from my fellow mediums, psychics and empaths. I have recently been reading about empaths on this site and I had never heard of them before so it intrigued me. The more I read about this type of ability the more I began to relate with what people were saying. I have also noticed that I have been and am still able to sense what people's emotions are before talking with them. Even when I'm talking through text with someone I usually am able to tell if something is wrong or not. Whenever my family or friends are fighting with each other I get more upset about it than normally people would. My parents and friends are always telling me to not be so sensitive and emotional because it's not that big or a deal, but I can't help it.
Now, with that being said I never thought much of this because I always thought everyone was able to do this and it wasn't that special. But now that I'm older I'm starting to realize that not everyone feels the same way that I do and that I may be an empath. So, my first question is does it sound like I'm an empath? I'm not sure if I am or if it's just all in my head, so any feedback would be most appreciated. I have one more thing I would like to ask some advice about. It deals with the subject of indigo/crystal children. Just yesterday I heard about these "new children" and I wanted to learn more so I researched their characteristics on many different websites. I noticed that I shared a lot of the characteristics of both crystal and indigo children, but I also didn't share some of the characteristics as well. Now, I hate being labeled, but I'm just trying to figure out what exactly I am so that I can use it to my own and others advantage.
Some characteristics that I shared with both indigo/crystal children would probably be:
I am good at giving advice to people and am, what I believe to be, a possible empath (although I'm not sure). People are always telling me that I am very wise and that my eyes, although they aren't wide or big, are very mysterious and wise looking and they change from gray-blue-green very often. When I was a child I had a strange fascination with rocks and crystals and would actually steal them from the school playground even though we weren't suppose to (I know, I'm such a rebel). Also, I have a strong sense of what I believe in and don't agree with the way government and education works most of the time. I have quite a temper. I am very sure of who I am and don't really care about what people think of me, but I am quiet and don't like to talk a lot. I have friends, but I do prefer to be alone a lot. I am always looking for a reason for people's actions or beliefs and get agitated when I don't get a good response. I don't like structure or being told what to do and I am pretty creative and am reasonably intelligent (I get straight A's in school). But, I also don't have some of the characteristics indigo/crystal children posses.
Even though I have a strong sense of what I believe in and I don't like being told what to do, I usually go along with it anyway because I don't want to cause any conflict or anything. I have a temper, but I don't usually show it for the same reasons of not wanting to cause trouble or conflict. I am not good at working with technology or computers in any way shape or form. Guilt or shame-filled situations sometimes work on me, but not always. I was not delayed in speech in any way as a child and (as far as I know) I do not posses any healing abilities.
So my second question is, could I possibly be an indigo or crystal child? If so, which one do I sound like I probably am? I just want to know so that if I am I can do what I need to do in this world to the best of my ability.
Thank you all very much for helping me in any way, shape, or form and I hope you all have a wonderful spiritual journey.
