I Can Sense Spirits And Read People's Emotions


I'm 13 and I can sense spirits and read people's emotions and stories. Right now, you must think I'm some crazy kid that heard a thump or something and thinks she's so special. But trust me, that's not the case. Let me start at the beginning. When I was little, (like 7 or 8) I was completely convinced that there was a ghost in my closet. Sure, most childhood ghosts are just a lumpy sweater or something. But my ghost LIT UP. Yes, at night, I would stare at the shimmering outline of teenage girl or little boy and wonder when they would come to eat me or something.

I realized that if I kept the lights on they would stay more hidden. So I keep the closet light on when I sleep. It's stopped helping though. They just go somewhere else in my room. One night when I was 11 years old, I was trying (and failing) to fall asleep (as usual) I turned on my other side and found myself face to face with a shimmery, turquoise, 4-7 year old boy. Kneeling at my bedside. He stayed staring at me for 30 seconds and then melted away. The rest of the night I heard thumping and occasionally the first words of a lullaby. I was so terrified.

I named him Charlie after he kept showing up. I think he might be watching me now.

I didn't tell my parents at first. I kept it to myself. I also didn't tell them about the stuff going on at school.

Just so you know. I am one of the weirdos at my school. I am not skinny or pretty or social or rich enough to be popular, and I always get gut instincts to sit with the kids who sit alone. ANYWAY, this year a new girl came to my school. She's ultra-hyper, and sometimes annoying, but she sees things like me. We became best friends. ANYWAY, I have something that I named EMPATHY since I had no idea I might just be physic. I can look at somebody, once, and know their personality, and some big experience in their life (sometimes something that hasn't happened yet). I also relate people to colors and animals. I can do it to every single person I see on the spot.

I've started seeing more ghosts. Not just the two in my room. On field trips, service trips, and just on the street. I'll also get 1 or 2 second visions of something in their life. One ghost I saw in a tree had the usual shimmer but she seemed so AWARE that she was dead. Most ghosts are just wondering around replaying scenes of their life.

I'm so clueless! I don't know what to do! I want to be able to communicate but I don't know where to start!

Thank you guys so much for sharing some experiences with me. I've been wanting to make another story but I cant...: (I'm a little scared of the spirits since I can't communicate with them at all. I've gotten a little worse at seeing the animals and colors in people. I still get bits of their personality and experiences though. I need to exchange words to find out colors and animals now.

I can also see and hear spirits and I can also feel other peoples' emotions just not as much as you. This ability can be good at times but then it can be really annoying at the same time. If you want to make your abilities stronger I suggest you start meditating, it opens up yourself to the spirits and your psychic abilities and then after just try and practice communicating to them by whatever your gut tells you to do.

Thats what I do and it has been helping me get better at my abilities and in the process I have also discovered new abilities as well.

I can sense things too (: I will walk into a place and will sense something. But I can only tell if its good or bad energy. I can't tell the gender species or age. Its quite frustrating because I don't know how to get better at it?

Im the same. I can sense their presence.
I'm also an empath. I can't turn it off an on though.
Somehow... I'm glad I can. Basically I just stop thinking about it and focus my mind elsewhere and it turns off. Either it turns off or I just become less aware o_o
Anyways. To developed your empathy abilities. I would just practice more. Listen to your instincts. It always works for me ^.^

Thank you so much for your comment! Most of the time I sense ghosts too but then I see clear mini-visons of them or something about their lives and then I'll know exactly where they are and what their doing.

I can't believe I got the name for empathy right! Do you have any tips for me kittykat6? I don't know how to develop my empathy. 😕

I'm amazed at your story about seeing spirits as a kid. You seem like you are really good at it too. I'm not actually able to SEE spirits, but I wish I could. I can just sense their presence and occasionally hear them. If you want to communicate with them, just talk to them. I normally do it in my head, and that seems to work, but you could probably talk out loud if you wanted to.

Also, about you being able to sense people's emotions and stories, I'm surprised that you picked the name "empathy" for that skill, because that is actually what it's called! You are a psychic empath. I am too, and it is a helpful skill, but it can sometimes be a burden.
