Odd Feelings


This isn't really a story; I'm sort of trying to discover who I am. But here is my dilemma: I do not see things - it's more like I can feel "things..." For example: when there are peaceful beings or presence around whether they are alive or um, not living, I feel a strong euphoria. The feeling is so happy, so peaceful.

However, there are times when this is not the case. Such as an unpleasant place would consist of me feeling anxious, worried, restless, and highly emotional. I do not know if I am just influenced by the physical layout of the house, or if there is something more? I try to ignore these strong feelings, even though I often fail at doing so. I do not like it, and I am absolutely afraid of it actually. I can also detect the "purity" of people. As in I can feel whether or not they are earnest, honest people, or if they are just waiting to screw you over. I can detect what type of mood a person is in before they tell me. I also see "things" sometimes in the corners of my eyes.

Am I crazy, or if not, what am I? One last thing: members of my family (aunts, grandmother, great-grandmother, grandfather) claim they are psychic. Some abilities are greater than the others. Is this a genetic thing, or are they crazy and I just feed off their stories?

empathy. Welcome. Empathy may seem like a curse sometimes, trust me, it's a gift. I should know. Sometimes I hat my empathy, but I have been like this ever since I was born, and I don't know what I would do without it.

hey, lola, nice to meet you. Well, you're gifted, but weak. You should practice your abilities, because you might be able to make them stronger. I am an empath, one of my best friends is psychic, and the other knows when important dates will be. We are a freak-family. The only normal person in our 'family' is natasha, whose been cursed by meeting us, since normal people who get to close to us usually get hurt. If you have any questions, post them, and we'lll answer. By the way, we live in berkeley springs, west virginia. It's a small simple looking town, but there are things lurking in every corner. Some friendly, like us, some not so friendly, like our dear witch who goes to school and acts like she's normal. How old are you, by the way?

I feel the exact same thing. I can tell how people are feeling, like if there sad or happy. And I can feel what the persons personality is like, even if I don't know them. And I can sense presence's, like negative energy or spirits. And my dad is physic so I probably got it from him. When I was little I would freak out a lot because I would feel presences and no one believed me. I used to sleep under my blankets at night because it felt like something was watching me or in the room. Now I'm 15 and I've been to a lot of Mediums and Psychics and they have all sensed I was physic when I walked in there room. I have the physic empathic ability and clairaudience ability. Clairaudeience is when you can hear conversations or any sounds from across a house. And I'm talking about a pretty big house. My mom called me big ears when I was younger because I would hear her whispering to my sister across the house and I could hear that the sink was slightly on in the bathroom across the house and no one else could and my mom went to check and it was barely on. I used to feel like I wasn't sane and I still kind of do, but I know its true now.

You're not alone Lola. I rarely see spirits, I just sense them... Big time. At night I find my line of sight drawn towards any open doorway, even the closet. I just moved out of my apartment and my kids and I are staying in a hotel until we move into our new house on Feb 1st. We are staying on a military base that offers temporary housing to military and federal employees. The building we are in used to be an old Air Force barracks. They converted it into hotel suites, but they did nothing to the outiside of the building. You can tell it's been here a LONG while. Anyway, I briefly saw a little girl standing in the entryway to our room. Also, I swear that I can feel someone small standing on the side of my bed looking at me while I am trying to fall asleep. My older daughter says she feels like she is being watched too. It's not a "scary" feeling, but it is a little unsettling.

I believe the reason it is so strong at night, is because your attention is more focused then. During the day you're busy and moving about doing your chores or whatever. I notice that even during the day, if I have to run back into the house alone when I forgot something, I can sense a presence there. So it may have to do with how focused you are, or how much external activity is going on in your house. But I don't think "they" just show up at night, they are always there whether we notice them at that time or not.

There is another thing, but I didn't want to sound too out there. Its sort of a phobia. When I am alone or just the only one awake at night, I hate to look at door entry ways or stair ways. Why? This is only at night. Is this just a personal phobia or is there an explanation. I use to have dreams when I slept with my door open that a man with a hat was always standing in the doorway always watching me. He would act like he was going to walk in, but then he would turn around and disappear. I could never see his face, just his outline. Not to mention I don't get a good feeling. It scares the crap out of me. Then I wake up scared shiatless turn on the light and shut the door.

Before I see spirits I become happy and excited for some reason. I've recognise the spirits from my dreams and also they have been loved ones of other people I know. They say everyone has a spirit guide and spirits who visit cause they was in your past life. They just want to check up on you. Sometimes they show themselves to me they show themselves alot. I'm not scared no more cause I have gotten used to it. I saw 6 spirits last year and heard 8. At night time I can hear voices downstairs it like all the spirits who come know each other and talk together. They could be talking about me which is kind of scary cause they talk to fast where I can't understand. When I see a spirit they don't talk but they talk when there in a other room how come?

When I'm on holiday I can feel other people's emotions and also I'm telepathic mostly on holiday that's why I don't enjoy holidays that much!

Wow Reading this is like what I go threw except there is this shadowy thing I plan out see but only at night. I wonder are you affraid of the quiet? I am affraid of quiet... I just have this gut feeling that if I sit in the quiet too long things will happen. Do you ever just get creeped out for no good reason in randome places or stair at a wall because your sure something is there or ever get soo cold even under the covers even if its warm in the room? I know that sound crazy but these things happen all the time to me. I don't tell many people because of how it sounds. I never told my son until he came to me with the same types of things happening to him just after his 13th brithday. I have always woundered about him just had this feeling always we were alike even before he told me. I also have a gut feeling he is more powerful then me. I know that sounds crazy not just what happens to us but to reffer to it as haveing powers but I don't know what else to call it. I to am scared of all of this and feel a bit crazy. Everything in my logical mind says its my imagination. My gut says I'm crazy not to believe its really happening. I do like the responce before mine calling it a gift and not a power. I think ill call it that from now on. I also like what they said about there being other things to life I feel that way to. I don't talk about all this much my lifes just to busey for that.

Keeping you in my prayers

You are not crazy, you sound like a sensitive (one who is very sensitive to others feelings and your surrondings). Yes it can be passed down from generation. I have a great experiment you can do. Go to a public place and close your eyes and just try to feel the energy that others are giving off. This is a great exercise to do to gain control and enhance this skill.

Just read that many sensitive people seem to have a "specialty..." You sound like you are empathetic, feel people. I tend to think this is hereditary, like singing ability, athletic ability, math. When I was two and learned to talk, I use to play a game. I would wait until someone was going to say something, then blurt out what they were going to say. I thought it was a fun game. My mom one night shook me, yelled, and told me that people would think I was weird. I still remember it because it hurt my feelings. I did stop. She never did anything like that again. Was a pretty laid back parent. Sadly, I think most people view these things as a bit nutty or weird. Perhaps some people use these talents in weird or bad ways so got that reputation. I always thought it seemed pretty natural, like hearing a song on the radio and playing it on the piano, not great, but okay. I think some go a little overboard with great "gift" and let it become too big a deal. Life is other stuff too.
