I Sense Things? What Am I?


Let me simply get to the point. I sense things, I can sense when people are lying and being dishonest, and when they are sincere. I see auras around everything though its not in color it's this gold solid line, I also see smokey ripples in the air that consist of these little dots that are everywhere and when the wind moves they move in the same direction as the wind, and sometime they just burst into little flashes of light.

When I go out with people I see things they over look like a cat in an alleyway or twenty dollars right next to a trashcan (these are some examples). As a child I've sensed ghost, I've felt them touching me but I could never see them. I use to live in my grandmother's house where she had died and this is where it took place.

But now I'm noticing something that is truly frightening, when I meet people I can just get them to tell me everything, I can practically get them to tell me anything I want them to personal facts, secrets and people just seem to seek me out for advice barely knowing me. But that isn't just it, I'm seeing creatures little ones just poof in and out of places.

Something that I truly like is the fact that I get vibes from people and animal etc. I enjoy the fact that I can sense things but I just want to know what I am. And if this helps people just like looking at my eyes, they say they're weird or beautiful or unique they're green and brown and yellow and they change color often they turn to gray at times and once they turned reddish green. (I mention this because I see things I don't know if it will help or not)

Sometimes I sense things but I don't think I have powers though. I do not know.

Thank you so much Psychic4Life! It's really hard finding someone to get help from. Lol I don't really know how to work on my abilities... I use them a lot then it's like a blow out and I'm just drained for a bit, then I go outside and chill in the woods and I'm better. I haven't found any real exercises for empathy. And the seeing energy it never goes away it only gets sharper and I can see more.

It's funny that you say people tend to confide in you whatever it is they want. This happens to me, too. It is one of the fine traits of being an Empath: we exude this bright light that attracts others and let's them know that we can be trusted, kind of like moths to flame, but in a positive and healing way. People tend to be drawn to our energy and tell us really private things about themselves because on some level of consciousness their psychic/spiritual self is aware that we can help them if they will just confide in us. So when people do confide in you, make sure you do everything in your power (excuse the pun) to help them, that is if it is something that needs helping. Sometimes their psychic/spiritual self just needs an Empathic ear to listen to them vent or complain, whatever they need to do. As for seeing things, that isn't a part of Empathy or Clairsentience. Clairsentience means Clear Sensing (or Feeling) in French, and as such is the ability to sense and feel all sorts of different energies, emotions and feelings, thoughts, etc. Clairvoyance in French means Clear-Sightedness, and thus seeing energies and/or spirits would be a part of Clairvoyance, not Clairsentience. Therefore, maybe it's possible that you're a bit Clairvoyant as well. If you are, I suggest you practice and hone your skills as much as you can!

Well it does affect me sometimes when I'm in large crowds examples being the cafeteria. I graduated high school this year and I never could really enjoy lunch because I'd zone out and get disorientated. But when it's small groups I can pretty much just tune it out. Now if someone is upset or angry going through something painful I can't ignore it or tune out. I often try to help them and lighten up their mood. I get sympathy pain often when I see people get injured on tv. I wouldn't say I suffer but sometimes I can't tune anything out at all and I feel sick for the day.

I guess you have a specific person in mind that you would like to let in. To answer your question I have to tell you that in my experience i've never initiated contact with a spirit. Infact its my belief that when we really want to recieve a message that's when its least likely to happen. It takes people many years to become good enough to give accurate readings & these people can rarely read for themselves (thats just in my experience) although i'm sure there's exceptions.

I lost a very dear friend to me last year. We knew eachother since we were 8&9 (i'm a year older) & grew up together. I was devastated at her passing & like most people who are grieving was desperate for a sign. I grew frustrated that I could not contact her nomatter how hard I tried it made me question my gift & a lot of other things. So I gave up. However recently i've felt her around a lot & have had her send me messages in my dreams. I guess the reason i'm sharing this story with you is just to say if a specific person is meant to visit you or leave a message look for the signs.

I'm sure there's other people here that can explain better than me & they are maybe able to connect with not only spirit but their loved ones in spirit.

I continue to develop my abilities & identify emotions & feelings recieved from all around. I will tell you with dedication & guidance it gets easier. You have a lot of time & are certainly open enough to reach your full potential. Pay attention to your dreams also, I recieve a lot of information in mine. Even answers to questions. Many Empaths go on to become great healers.

I do have an important question, do you suffer when you are sensing all these emotions? Empaths have major struggles especially ones who don't realise what they truly are. People who are Clairsentient can discern what others are feeling but it doesn't affect them. Your answer to that question will tell you if your an Empath or are Clairsentient.
Peace 😊

Thank you mazab84. I get the part where you say to shield yourself, but what do I do to let someone in... Like a specific person? This is all so new to me and I have really no idea where to start, My family and friends have always said I'm weird but now I feel better having an idea about what I am. I hope this site can help with a lot.

I see spirit in that form. I feel as I develop more I may see them more detailed. This is quite new for me. Its all happening at once. Although i've known i've been an empath for quite a while. So I can also feel when spirits near so seeing them now makes a lot more sense & accounts for the feelings that I once had no understanding of. Its easier to grasp picking up on a living persons thoughts & emotions. A little unnerving knowing its spirit but that's my own personal fear of the unknown.

In reguards to controlling your gift, it depends what's affecting you the most. You have to look out for your wellbeing.I've let myself becoming drained & been physically/emotionally/mentally affected by always being open. I had a hard time seperating what was my feelings & what wasn't at times. Pull back from the people whos energys & emotions have a negative affect on you where possible & work on shielding yourself (Thats what i'm working on). Protecting yourself is important. Going about this is different for everyone as we all have different belief systems. But regular meditation, positive thinking & prayer has helped me & I now feel ready to say no to the people that I let drain me reguarly.

I got really good advice from another person on here who reguarly cleanses their space & shields their home & smudges their home weekly. She also suggested discipling my mind not to entertain negative thought that will also stop this energy being attracted to you.

Most importantly learn to accept it as a part of you & balance it in with the rest of your life. I use to see it as a weakness with how I stuggled to cope but I now see it for what it is, a gift. One i've been given for a reason.
Hope things make a lot more sense to you now & you continue to develop & enjoy it. ❤ 😊

Thank you! So that's the reason for all this? And for Empathsam I get this tickling prickly feeling all over me when I sense ghost. I get this feeling often when I go to my aunt's house, she use to be a dog breeder and many of her dead animals are buried in the back yard. To gleerage123 I do notice people coming to me with their problems, and sometimes I do see auras with no body at times. And to mazab84 what are those wispy waves and dots? I see them every where sometimes it think their alive. Now a question to all of you, how do I start to control this? Thank you again.

Your centainly a strong Empath. I too have people seek me out. They are attracted to your energy. It stands as an advantage when you can tell if people aren't being truthful or are in trouble etc but you need to protect yourself. Being approached by people & picking up on their emotions can be very overwhelming,don't let it consume you. I have suffered the negatives of this also & do think you should follow the advice gleerage123 has given about finding ways to deal with the downside, large crowds etc. Thats what I still struggle with from time to time. If possible I step away when the energy makes me feel yucky & overwhelmed. This isn't always an option so I am trying to find a way of shielding myself.

I have no personal experience seeing auras. With what i've seen & learned elsewhere about auras is the people who see them in great detail can be a medical intuitive. Have you heard of this? Or can you see illness through the aura?I'm interested. I do see the wispy, wavy static like energy around me similar to what you describe & the dots clumped together moving with intelligence. I have a lot of unanswered questions too just like you but your in the right place for some really good advice. Empathsam said it best about learning to control it. I think my advice would be learn to seperate yourself from the emotion. Wether it be a person, animal or entity.

Seems like you're quite developed. Do the emotions
Of others intensify when you look them in the eye? Do you tend to feel like everyone talks to you about their problems? Have you ever noticed auras that may not have a physical body tied to them? This is all empathy, and as you start to control this ability, more things may start to open up in the world, including ghosts. I suggest looking up guides, books, and articles to help you manage the downside of it, like headaches, large crowds, etc.

Thank you for posting this, because many people deal with this and don't even know it, including teens and young adults. I'm sure you will find support on this website if you come across problems in the metaphysical realm (s). Stay Strong and God Bless.

I believe you have some form of empathy. As for noticing things others dont? This just apears to be a hightend sense of awareness. But the ghosts and sensing lying can very well be epathy. I would like to know how you sense ghosts, (For expample, I have headaches that get worse and worse as I get closer, I went to historical williamsburg and got severe headaches nearby a ghost sighting) But if you can learn to control your empathy, you can unlock incredible skills to communicate with people! I have never been too big on auras, I doubt their existence. But I can say empathy is real, and this is a blessing you have been given for a reason
