Am I An Empath Or What?


I'm Serah and I'm really curious about this. After years of odd experiences, I'm actually wondering if I have any sort of gift or something.

My mom, when she was little, had always been able to see spirits (or so she says) and at one point she was very briefly possessed by her grandfather at a young age. She also says she would sometimes hear voices up in the mountains near her house back in PR.

As for me, I've had small instances of déjà-vu, which I doubt mean anything, several other experiences. Before the death of another friend, this time at 11, I felt really sick. When I woke up the next day, I felt like nothing ever happened. It turned out that the day I got sick was the day he died.

Another incident similar to this happened recently, I was out, on a Saturday morning, at the vet's office with dog so I could get him a check-up. As I was waiting in line, I began to feel a sharp pain in my chest. I ignored it, went home, and the symptoms never appeared again for the remainder of the day. When I went back to school on Monday, an acquaintance had died of a heart attack on Saturday. It was then I began to realize that something was a bit odd with that coincidence. However, I left it alone and moved on with life.

However, all that changed over these last holidays. We were over in PR for the holidays; and since the major holidays had already passed, we took a trip into a mountain town there to eat some ice cream. Just as we near the town, I start getting a feeling similar to that I had experienced several months before. Not too long after getting the dreaded pain, my mother receives a call from my great-aunt. Apparently my great-uncle, who had been terminally ill for 2 years or so, was about to expire. We rush down the mountains in order to make it before he had died. Luckily, we managed to see him before he had passed on. As I stood by his bedside, I felt the pain dissipate as he was taking his final breaths. When he had finally passed on, I felt a brief presence that came and went; and the pain had gone away. At that point, I was convinced that I wasn't normal.

This was eventually furthered when I tried to fall asleep last night. As I tried to catch some sleep, I heard a voice that sounded like an old southern (really southern at that too) black male. I woke up in a jolt, and began to feel very uncomfortable in my room. I felt like something wasn't quite right. I got out and went over to my dad who was still watching TV. I told him that something in my room wasn't letting me sleep, but he shrugged it off. It wasn't until I told him I was serious that he listened. He remembered that there was a Methodist church with a cemetery not too far from the house, even though a Catholic priest blessed our house when we moved in. So, he took some Holy Water that my mom had and put some on me. He told me pray until I felt comfortable again. After some time, 2 hours to be exact, I finally able to fall asleep.

However, even as I type this, I still feel like something about me is different. Right now, my mom is the closest thing I have to have had gone through what I am at this moment. However, I'm too afraid to say anything as my mom is also a devout Catholic and is very quick to judge. At least right now, can I get any answers? I'm open to anything whether it questions or your own 2 cents on this.

Thank you!

Thank you so much for your input. I've been trying meditation, but I seem to have a time with it. But I'll definately check out Project Meditation.

There are some great resources out there as well that you can study. A lot of them you can even get from your library. Works by James VanPraag, John Edward, or Lisa Williams. I personally love Lisa Williams and feel she has a great energy about her. She also has a weekly podcast where she often opens it up to callers and their questions. I'd totally check it out! Another great book is Learn to See: An Approach to Your Inner Voice Through Symbols by Mary Jo McCabe. Being an empath is very difficult at times, but as you learn to strengthen your energetic shield to block out negative energy, as you practice meditation (a great free program online is Project Meditation), and as you learn to connect with your guides and angels, things will be much easier to manage. Just keep studying!

it takes time to evolve your skill, you're still coming into your abilities. Remember these 3 things

1) Your abilities are used to help you gain knowledge or insight about yourself, the universe, and other people

2) never use your abilities for revenge even if it is for someone else's revenge

3) never use your abilities for the selfish gain of yourself or others

Follow these rules and you'll do fine

Hmm it sounds like your an empath, but for some reason your abilities are only manifesting when someone is about to die. Through meditation and learning to focus where your empathing will help you learn to control your gift. When you evolve in your abilities you won't only learn how to read and feel people's emotions and pain, but you'll learn how to do the following

1) read and feel someone's emotions and pain from anywhere in the world

2) make people feel emotions

3) swap two different people's emotions or pain

4) reflect your own emotions or pain

5) become empathically connected to inanimate objects that might be of significance to someone

And much more

Hope this helps
