Known I Was Different For Years


I'm confused for years I have known I was different it started when I was about four I use to talk to a little boy that no one else could see people would say it's an imaginary friend but I remember clear as day when my friend had to go he explained he was going and wouldn't be coming back I remember running down the driveway saying goodbye crying. About a year later at the same house I looked out my window and saw two spirits waving at me not talking just waving. After that we moved to this new house and when I would go to bed a girl spirit or ghost would sit at the end of my bed and try to talk to me but I couldn't understand her it use to make me physically sick with the intensity of the feelings I would get when she was there, I have no idea why. As the years progressed I have not seen any spirits physically. But I have definitely sensed them on many occasions and in a dream I talked to my dead grandfather I was in a bad space and I felt immense joy and calmness from his visit, I also feel others emotions and can sense if people are genuine or not. I also feel tired a lot and feel my emotions are dictated by those around me. I don't like areas with a lot of people as the emotions are intense. I also have had a dream where I know I have been given information that could help someone but I haven't given it as I don't trust my visions could anyone enlighten me as to what these experiences mean I feel I'm in need to understand this as I am overwhelmed and emotionally drained, I would love and appreciate any advice

thankyou so much newbiepsychic ill be sure to try and seperate peoples emotions from my own I'm sure you know how hard this can be also as I rely on it, but I know I need to start dealing with my own emotions for a change, I to can sense peoples emotions by a look or even just been in the same room as someone and its not very nice especially if its an unpleasent emotion,

Hi Abbey23,
Re knowing yourself and what are your feelings vs those of others, this is a very hard thing for empaths. Part of it is learning to detach from people, meaning, try to take a step back from any given situation or person. Just take a breather and try to assess whether what you are feeling is what you truly believe for yourself or whether it is something being put upon you (or that you are feeling someone else's pain etc). This is hard to do and takes practice. You have to see yourself as yourself and other people as themselves with their own emotions - you need to make a mental judgement as to whether their emotions are affecting you or not. I find someone who is in a grumpy mood just from the look on their face will affect me. But I have to stand back and say ok, that's their emotion, not mine. I also have realized that most of the time I'm a very positive and happy person, this is who I am and who I choose to be. I think most empaths are like that but we get so depressed and put on by other's emotions it is very hard to distinguish what we truly feel. You CAN remain a happy and positive person and still have empathy for other's pain.
If you can step back, see who is feeling what, choose how YOU wish to feel about a person or situation, and have confidence in your decision. Practice practice practice.:) good luck ❤

the hardest thing about being me is I find it hard to know myself I'm to consumed in what others are feeling I have lost sight of my own feelings, could anyone give me advice on blocking feelings of others out.

..."I also feel others emotions and can sense if people are genuine or not. I also feel tired a lot and feel my emotions are dictated by those around me. I don't like areas with a lot of people as the emotions are intense."...

I'm a bit of a emotional copy cat.

I have bad eye sight and not wearing my glasses in public and or work helps me ignore these feelings a bit. I'm very passive and care a lot so when people are negative toward me and others it bothers me a lot and they usually know it. I don't know why not wearing glasses helps but it does for me... Find your thing.

Alright, I hear a lot of stories like this it's not completely out there. A lot of little kids are able to physically see spirits and talk to them, their minds open and doesn't shut out things. This to me sounds it never exactly left, that you can still communicate with them through some dreams and sensing them... Look up things about mediums and Lucid Dreams and see if you can relate to any of the experiences there as well... I hope that helped... Good Luck

hi.:) I cannot give any help to you abbey23, but I am in sort of the same boat as you so this in a roundabout way may (or may not) be of help to you; out of everybody that knows me, I am the logical one, the skeptic, yet I have had 'things' visions etc and speaking to the dead etc from since I can remember, including being able to talk to my Grandad and other dead family members.

I know it sounds horrible, but at the same time as poo-pooing psychics etc on the telly, sorry on the flip side at the same time, because of my ownself and what happens, I also can't help but know it's not pretend or fake etc, you get the gist, I am the doubting Thomas even though I still at the back of my mind know it's true what I see and do too.

Well, because of the poo-pooing part of me (I don't know, maybe its a security thing;) because I deem what I have as a curse) I have been skeptical and thought 'huh, spirit guides 🤔 ' because I to my knowledge haven't had spirit guides to help me.
The things happen, without a spirit guide.

So basically, my question is this, am I oblivious to the fact because of my own 'restraints' I've put on myself with my poo-pooing, that infact my Grandad and relatives could be potential spirit guides then? And if so, what do I do, just say will you be my spirit guide Grandad? Or words to that effect?

I have muddled through with it all for decades (I'm 37 on 6th Sept and my very first experience of any kind was when I was 3) with various things happening, trying to help them in some cases but not having a clue, and listening to them or just I don't know what, being a person for them to come and look at and then they clear off again and never see them again in some cases. Is there anywhere the pair of us, a link or anything can go to, to give explanations or something to at least semi-make sense of why,:) and what are we supposed to be doing/what is expected of us if anything, when we see or experience things, especially when given information from 'the other side':S because in my case, I want to help them, but do not know how in most cases, or how in what way they want my help because I get scared that I maybe have misconstrued exactly what they mean when they are asking for help? If they don't say 'pass me over to the other side' then how do you know wether to or not for example? Because in that respect, in some cases, how do you work out the type of help they are wanting for instance?

Sorry for the massive comment, but I am the type of person that hates the thought of not helping in the right way if you get me;)

I am a spiritual medium, clairvoyant, and clairsentient. I can sense the emotions and feelings of those around me, what helped more than anything was meditation. I do my best to meditate once a day, usually at night before sleep. It helps me process everything that has happened to me, and prepares me for the next day. I hope this helps. You may also try to contact your spirit guide (s). I have 4 that I know of, Ella a wolf, Allie my best friend, my deceased grandmother and uncle.
