My Summary Of Odd Goings On


 I don't want to jump to conclusions with a handful of strange things that have happened and just assume I'm psychic, but I also don't want to write off a possible gift as coincidence and not practice and develop it.

Most of what I remember from my childhood are dreams. I lived with my grandparents and mother at age four. Mom and I shared a room because I wouldn't sleep alone. That particular room, from as far as I can remember to the last time I had slept there (approximately age 16) gave me horrible, vivid nightmares of pain, death, and blood. My mother also mentioned weird things happening in that room, including, as she claims, seeing the ghost of a man.

I moved with my mother and step-father elsewhere, and still had vivid, but less horrific, dreams. Mostly flashes of mundane, everyday things. Soon many of these dreams replayed themselves in my life. The one I remember most clearly is also the simplest; we were driving down the road during autumn and I saw an interesting tree.

Years go by without any substantial experiences. During these years I suffered from major depressive disorder. I was on medication for a long time, and everything about me seemed suppressed. As soon as I was able, I was weaned from the medicine and I suddenly started having these bizarre feelings. I'm not quite sure what to call them or how to express them.

What I first noticed was that I could feel music. Certain songs gave me what felt like chills. I never felt cold, exactly; it was more like electricity down my back, across my arms, and down my legs.

Soon after that, I noticed certain people had the same effect on me. Not everyone had this electric field around them (that I could feel, anyway) but for those that did, if I came within a pretty consistent distance of about five feet I would get the electricity feeling again, mostly around my back and arms.

When I was around these same people I could feel their emotions change, too. I never had to look at them to tell if they were happy, sad, angry, etc.

After learning about how music affects me, but around the same time as I experimented with the "energy" I felt around people, I started getting the electricity feeling in my stomach. There would also be this feeling like I needed to expel this energy somehow, like I needed to scream. This always happens before something bad happens, and the stronger it is the worse things get.

The strongest one I had happened a few years ago. First my car broke down in front of my friend's house. Someone had to drive me home that night. Then, that same friend and her girlfriend ran away, and my car was found in front of her house. The girlfriend's mom got my phone number and threatened me, and because I was parked illegally (my car wasn't close enough to the curb) if I didn't move it in 24 hours it would be towed.

Sometimes I get a combination of these feelings; I was walking and thinking about a friend I was about to meet up with, when the electricity feeling started in my stomach along with a distressed feeling. After a little talking she confessed she was having issues within the family.

All of these feelings come on their own accord, and when I try to have them nothing happens. I would like an objective view on these experiences. Are they simple coincidences and intuition, or could they be something more?

I definitely have had a few major depressive episodes, and never realized that may have been what it was from. Once I spent a week in the psyche ward at the hospital, and definitely many times of wanting to die and not knowing why I felt that way so strongly. I may have been picking up others around me... Now it really makes sense!

Seek- sound is energy. And you are an empath. I am not surprised that you had a major depressive period in your life. Many empaths do. It's overwhelming at times to deal with the emotions of others. Many empaths will even stop going out in public. But there are ways to make it a little less 'crazy'. Meditation is a good start. Learning to let the feeling from others flow but not taking them on as your own is something you can learn. Protection as well. The electric feeling is what I call ' true knowing'. I get it in the form of static along my arms which causes goosebumps. Sometimes it's so strong the goosebumps are full body ones. Look into something called 'chakras' for the stomach issue you have when you 'know' stuff. I also get that... And the chakras seemed to make sense. Hope this helps... Be well.

I understand how people could give off an energy, but how could sound transfer the same kind of feelings?

I feel that same way you do about music. It isn't all music, but some songs I feel as though I can feel the emotions that were being felt when the song was written. It is such a deep feeling in my whole body like I want to stop everything that I am doing and just relieve the sensations. I have learned that creating (painting, drawing) is a good way to expel that pent up energy, as well as crying.

I still have not figured out, though, what to do about picking up the energy of those around me, or if this is some sort of gift that I need to develop. I just wanted you to know that you are not alone.
