This is my first time actually writing down the whole story so bare with me if I ramble a bit. Sensitivity to spirits and energies runs in my family I guess. My great, great, great grandfather was a shaman, and I strongly believe that at least part of his abilities were passed on to me. For as long as I can remember I have felt energies, ghosts and seen what I think of as auras. (to me they look more like the shimer of heat rising from asphalt than the colors most people describe) I've always felt a little different.
When I was 8 my experiences began to intensify, starting with the arrival of the spirit wolf who, as crazy as it sounds, talks to me in my head and sometimes takes over my body. I used to black out whenever she took over. It took years of adjusting but we now manage to co-exist peacefully. When she takes over everything physical is easy and my abilities are stronger. Ever since she first started talking to me my abilities grow stronger and I get more and more sensitive to everything around me. I started hearing trees talking and even singing when I walk in the woods, I see, hear, and feel ghosts more frequently and stronger than before. Elements occasionally do what I want, and I can feel other people's emotions, sometimes so strongly I forget who I am.
I'm not asking for help. I'm figuring things out and I've got it pretty much under control. I'm just looking to share my story, chat and share ideas with people who might understand.
Also, sometimes when I touch things I can see a flash of the past of whatever it is I'm touching. Is that common?
