Feeling Other People's Pain


Ever since I can remember I have had things happen to me. I have a dream that comes true, I have intense deja vu moments, I feel others pain, I see things as if watching a movie but they are visions as I call them. Sometimes I feel like something is wrong with me.

A few examples of things that have happened to me... When I was around 12 years old I was the passenger in a vehicle with my mother driving. I felt panic and could "see" us hitting something in the road, losing control and crashing. I told my mother to switch lanes and fast. No sooner than she switched lanes there was a ladder in the middle of the lane we were in. I don't remember everything that has happened but when I tell her something, she listens because she herself has seen it come true from me telling her.

Another time later in life, I was lying on the bed getting ready to sleep when, as if I were with him, I could see my husband lying on the bed holding his stomach. My stomach started hurting really bad and I doubled over. (My husband was in Mexico visiting family and I stayed with my mother) I told my mom about it and she called my husband to ask how he was. He started telling her he was in bed sick with some stomach pain. How could I feel the pain he had and see him as if I was right next to him?

This also happens with my sister. I think of her and know something when it's wrong, or I can feel it if she is sick. She is my step sister so there is no blood tie there.

I have feelings of nervousness and then the persons name comes to me like someone whispering in my ear. Each thing that could happen is a different feeling for me. I feel sad and nervous, kind of anxious when someone is going to die, and I can name that person, but only for family members - even ones I don't know. I knew when my sister went into labor because of her pain, it was like I could feel it. Why does this happen?

I dream things that come true. Certain feelings of dreams and things happening, then within a few days, they happen. Generally I don't remember the dream until it is happening. I wake up anxious, normally it isn't something good happening in my dreams, and remember parts of it. Then when they happen, I remember the whole dream.

When my mom told me my little brother had a girlfriend, I started describing her to my mom. She asked me if I had seen her. I hadn't. I just knew what she looked like. I don't know how. I can look at people and know them. I can complete thoughts when people are speaking them. Why does this happen to me? Sometimes it is quite annoying. Some things I would rather not know. I have been told by various people I am a white light. I have no clue what that means. I have been told by a psychic I am very intuitive. I don't know what she meant by that either.

Can anyone explain what it is that is happening with all of this. I try to look for things, explanations, but it seems like there is a little of everything and no one thing fits me.

I need to know if what I "feel" and "sense" is valid. My girlfriend and I are both 46. We dated for 2 years when we were 19. We were each other's first true loves. Stupid kids that we were, we broke up. 25 years later, thanks to the power of social networks, we reconnected. She has 2 kids, 13 & 15, and is separated from her husband. We started to date and became very very attached and fell in deeply love. I told her that we started to develop a very strong "link". I could sense things about her that would freak both of us out. One time, meeting in a gigantic mall, we parked directly across from each other without even knowing where the other was. We do things that the other is thinking about. When apart in our respective homes, we'll drink the same sorts of beverages without prior knowledge. Well, her ex-spouse unexpectedly died and she's taken it very badly. The kids are devastated. She feels wretched that she could not do more for him (it was a heart condition) by getting him to take his meds, go to the doctor, stop smoking, etc. She feels so guilty that she hasn't wanted to see me since the death (we are going on 10 days now). I have no problem with her request. I respect her position. She needs time to mourn for him, ex husband or otherwise. Now here is my problem: for 6 days after he died, I would "FEEL" her mourning! Plus, I actually think I felt the mourning of the kids! I felt horrible and pained for them. Not as bad as they did, of course, but I felt miserable and guilty for them. It's messed me up so bad that I was prescribed Klonopin, a xanax-like pill, to calm me down. Well, today is the 1st day the kids are back at school, and the girlfriend takes care of many loose ends before going back to work in a few days. In other words, things are a bit calm and getting back to normal. They don't seem so wrecked, and neither do I. So I ask quite simply: is it possible for me to feel other people's pain? When far apart? If so, why? How? What's it called? Thank you

I also feel the physical pain of others. I can also sense the mood a person is in. I'm able to see auras and spirits. I dream things, sometimes years, before they happen. I see it as a gift. I think that people like us are in contact with the other world, or have older souls who have been to this world already and are wiser and in contact with both sides. Don't feel like something is wrong with you, you're not the only one.

wow you just described everything I go though! From the dreams coming true to feeling physical pain of others. What made me search for info was today because lately I have noticed when I hear someone get hurt or shot on tv or something I can feel it in the spot where I think it is at. I thought it was just a mind thing but I was watching a show and the girl got cut from what they were saying and right away my right foot hurt and they then showed that she got cut on her right foot in the same spot. Then she was in the bathroom cutting herself and right away my left arm got a sharp pain but this time I decided to trace the exact spot it hurt because I wanted to see how accurate it was and luckily they actually showed where she got cut for a split second and with help from my hdtv I was able to see that it was on the exact same arm and exact same spot and angle where I traced... It was the upper arm and diagonal angle so it wasn't obvious. I get many dejavu moments too and can only remember certain dreams when I am living them too. The only thing we don't have in common is telling when a family member dies and which one, I think its because I have yet to lose anyone close thankfully. I too can tell how a person is and how they will act and how they will affect my life just by the first glimpse of them. I think this is really cool though.

People who want to know me a little cause I know some people were asking questions about the person who wrote the above but since I have all the same experiences:

I am a very deep thinker always have been and very open minded but when I do feel other peoples pain I'm usually not thinking at all it just happens

Im not too much into meditation although that came naturally for me like I would meditate when I was little without even knowing what it was or how to do it, and I still do every now and then in the shower for some reason but I haven't for half a year.

And I'm a believer, I believe in a lot of things, aliens, energies, but I do question myself a lot if I believe in god or not

Markendra - I always love to read other peoples' experiences. People are so much alike is ways. You sound a little like me. At work, I was always the "flexible" one who could do whatever needed to be done and scrape by. In college, I didn't really have one great thing, but all them seemed interesting and good. All my profs thought I should specialize in their subject. It was confusing. In my sensitivity, I do a little of it all it seems but nothing great. I guess we are who we are in all areas of our lives. Some people seem to have an ability or two that are really outstanding. I don't. I just have a little of it all. It sounds like you are like that too.

Last night was another bad night for me. I had dream after dream that would wake me up. My husband asked me what was wrong but I couldn't tell him. I don't know what I was dreaming. I just remember not liking the feeling I had. I know it will happen and the dream will come flooding back to me.

I have never meditated, nor do I know how. I believe I live a rather general life. I normally think about what is at hand and try not to focus on things too far out. If I do my mind turns into a highway and I won't get it to shut off.

I know things are about to become really active for me. My husband is leaving for Mexico in June... He will be gone for quite a while. I'm wondering if that is part of why I am becomming so sensitive again. Sometimes I wish I could shut it off. I prayed one time for this to go away and things lessened for me, but it was only for a little while. The feelings, dreams, sensing of things, etc...well, they have been getting stronger again.

I have never met my biological grandmother, she died before my birth (when my mom was 15) yet she came to me in a dream. I described her to my mother perfectly, right down to the sound of her voice. My mom doesn't have pictures of her... Maybe one or two, but that is it. Anyway, my mom told me of when she was pregnant with me, she had a dream my grandmother was trying to reach inside of her and take me. Well, this is what is odd, I went with my mother to have a reading done. The lady said that my grandmothers presence was in the room, but coming from me. All my mom said was her name... Nothing more. It was odd, but since then, things have picked up for me again, gotten stronger. There are so many things I could tell you that have happened, it's just crazy.

Have any of you ever noticed that when you are in the presence of someone with similar abilities yours get stronger? This is the only explanation I have as to why they are getting stronger for me... Unless one of you has any ideas.

Oh! Thats what its called! In that case, I am, as well, an empath. I too can feel emotions and physical pain of others.

Dreaming something before it happens is precognition. As far as feeling another person's emotions, that means you are an empath. I am an empath as well. Some empaths only pick up on emotions, I pick up on emotions and physical ailments like you do, but only some empaths do that. Sometimes I swap energy with someone, and I have their symptoms, and they are fine. It gets confusing for me as well to try and label every gift I have and I've had experience with just about every gift I've ever heard of. So I just say I'm psychic. One day we'll figure all of it out I guess. Haha

Follow your gut, and I advise warning the manager on your airport about what you think will happen, if you really think that, other people's lives could be at stake.

I've had dreams just like yours. Dreamt in full detailbaout people before I met them. But, maybe you should tell your family about this dream your having. I'm not going to say if you shold cancel or not for I do not want to be the reason of someone's death. I would not be able to live with myself.

I too have everyone of these abilities ever since I was a child. Sometimes seem way stronger than others and I wish I had some answers. I always dream very lucid real dreams like I am there living it. Many time dreaming the future, but I too don't realize it until it happens then I remember in great detail. I feel others pain. I know them just by being next to them. I know the phone is going to ring and who it is seconds before. I dreampt in detail about 911 2 weeks before it happened. I just last night had a very weird dream about an airport where I saw dead family members. I hugged them and they didn't remember me, but in the dream I understood this, hugged one of them saying in a parallel universe we are really good friends. I am really upset right now because while there a plane was to crash and I am due to fly with my family 2 weeks from now and do not know if I was dreaming the future or not and am thinking I should cancel the trip? What should I do?

yes there is. There is clairvoyant,Clairsentience,and Clairaudience. And, I've had similar experiences to yours Markendra. I dreamt about the guy I would fall in love with in september all summer, before I had even met him. And as for whoever Me is, if you have all three of the abilities we do, you are infact psychic.

I have these things happen to me to, everything but the visions. I have the precognitive dreams and feel others pain. Sounds like you are clairsentient and clairvoyant to me. You should learn some grounding techniques, it will help a ton! And start meditating if you don't already 😉

I have had similar experiences and beleieve I have the same ability as you (two). I have pondered upon it and I think its a 6th sense. Its almost like instinct. Isn't it? Your brain knows what is right, and people like us realize what our brain is trying to tell us and we accept the urges.
It makes us feel specific emotions to lead us to a conclusion but most people don't follow their emotions and instincts and so don't have these experiences. If they do have them, they don't see them in the same light.
Do you think alot, in general? Or do you live a normal life and randomly have psychic experiences? Reply please :) Love, Me x

Thank you abilicous for letting me know I am not the only one! I don't understand why it happens to me. Sometimes I am affraid to sleep for fear of what I will dream. Then again, sometimes it is comforting. I knew each of my children before they were born, I knew each of their sexes. I knew their personalities, what they would look like, everything. I've had some pretty odd experiences and I have no one to talk to about them. My mother and my aunt know, so does one of my sisters. Is there a name for these abilities?
