Wow, were do I start. First of all, I have to say that I am so happy to have found this site. I love, love, love that there is a place where I can come and share my experiences with people and not have to watch them reach for the phone to call the guys with the padded truck. When I was little the most I would every experience out of the norm was hearing my name being called or being touched by something that I couldn't see. I did pick up the emotions of people and places which made me think there was something wrong with me. But it wasn't until I became pregnant with the twins that my abilities amplified 100 fold.
I have so many things going on with me. I didn't know I was an empath until I came here. I thought I was being judgmental... Not to mention a little crazy. Not only can I read people's emotions, I sometimes hear what they are thinking. I can also sense the presence of things I cannot see. I will either feel calm or fear in those situations, depending on the type of spirit. Also, I can feel the temperature in my home suddenly drop and I have the heat going full blast. I have seen spirits on a handful of occasions and I did see an angel once. I can see little flashes of light, whether I am in darkness or light, at work or at home. I have dreams almost every night. I can tell the difference between the ones that are just dreams, and the ones that tell me something is about to happen. I dreamt about my mom's death, the birth of my twins, my move across the country, and so many, many other things. I have seen the end of the world twice, as well as tsunamis, earthquakes, and hurricanes.
I have four children. I know that two out of the four possess abilities for sure. My eldest has been seeing dead people before she could even talk. She used to freak my mother out all of the time. She has dreams that come true and she also tells me that she experiences deja vu... everyday. She can also see spirits. I have to watch were we live because the wrong choice can make for a very unhappy family life which I learned when we moved to Hawaii. (The four years we lived in Hawaii I would wake up scratches all over my body.) The youngest, my female twin, has my gift of empathy. I also think she knows what I am thinking because she will answer questions I don't even get a chance to get out of my mouth. She sees spirits as well, but not to the degree that her older sister does. I'm still waiting to see what will happen with my middle daughter and the boy twin. I do know that my middle daughter does have a strong connection with animals.
There are so many stories that I am ready to share here. I can't do them in this post because it would be way too much, not to mention the different topics that our experiences cover. But I will share them, one at a time. Again, I am happy that I have an audience of willing listeners with similar experiences. I will be bending everyone's ears, a lot.
