Psychic? Empath? What Am I And How Can I Work On Thes Gifts?


I am an empath without a doubt, I have always been able to feel people's emotions no matter how hard they try to hide them. But there is more, my mother was incredibly psychic. She has dreams and premonitions of peoples deaths before they happen, and they always die no matter what she does to stop it. The last one, was her boy friend about 25 years ago, she had a dream about it and begged him not to leave the house that day, sobbing, but he insisted on running out to pick up a friend, he died in a car crash 15 minutes later. However my mother is christian and said it was of the devil and so she never embraced it and instead rejected it. To my knowledge she no longer has these dreams/feelings. (but no one close has died lately either)

I believe some of this "ability" was passed on to me. (is that even possible?) I don't have dreams at all, just feelings, but they are so strong that they have caused me to come home from work on occasion. The problem is they are never clear and concise. In my heart it feels like a loved one has died, but in reality, it's always just things like, my boyfriend is leaving me and was packing his stuff out of the house, or, my mother got arrested and was in jail ect. Something is always wrong but it's never what I expected. Is there a way to work on this? I would love to embrace this if I could, but it seems I have no control over it whatsoever.

On a side note, I don't know if this comes with being an empath, but I have an uncanny ability to know what people are thinking. I wouldn't call it mind reading, because I can't "hear" their thoughts. I just "know" what they are going to say before they say it, it is very common for me to interrupt people by finishing the question they are asking me and then answering it, because in my mind I know what they are going to ask and it feels like it takes them forever to ask it. I already know the question and answer as soon as they say my name to get my attention to ask me. What it this?

I am also somewhat sensitive. Not a lot though. I can't speak with the dead or anything like that. But I can "sense" them, like I'm being watched. It gives me chills every time and a sense of great fear, so much so that sometimes I'm too scared to even look behind me or move. However, out off all the times I've sensed something, I've only seen two shadow figures, one "white shadow" and an apparition. One time I got this feeling as I was out for a walk at night, just down the street and back, but this is back country so it was basically the woods haha. It was very eerie that night, with the way the wind was blowing on the trees and such. I got the feeling as I walked under a wooden post with a light on it, usually I wouldn't turn around but this time I did, as plain as day, a thick shadow the size of a medium sized dog (like a pug) shot across the street underneath the light post. My eyes watered up from the fear, but I kept walking. I ended up stopping at my friends house when I saw her on the porch, she is wiccan, when I walked up she asked me if I wanted to come in, and then said casually "the spirits are out tonight". I've never been out walking at night since, even though she insisted they were harmless after hearing my story.

On a final note, the energy of other people has a weird effect on me. When around a lot of people like at a mall or festival I'll start to feel ill and uncomfortable, usually get a headache as well. I feel great around a small group of friends, and completely drained and lethargic when alone. I have no idea what this means, if anything at all.

What does all of this mean? There are so many different terms and stuff out there but none off them seem to fit me. I would really like to embrace and improve these "gifts" but it feels like I have no control over any of them. Is that just the luck of the draw? I would love to talk about this with more experienced people and hear what you guys think about it.

Thanks for reading.

Thanks for the links! I've heard a little of the indigo children before, but the description of one is rather vague and I would feel uncomfortable considering myself one. Definitely something I should research more:)

Thanks for the information, I have actually begun meditating nightly before bed, I can say that I never imagined how much it would actually help. Everything is just... Better haha. I now understand why so many people recommend it.

I am very interested in this "shield of protection" and any advice you can give about it. I'll contact you via email shortly:)

Thank you all for all your responses, I really appreciate it.

You are without a doubt an empath/psychic. I also am an empath/psychic among quite a few other things. Yes you are correct about knowing what other people are going to say or do, those both being related to you being an empath. With this being said you have to get yourself a shield of protection, they help tremendously when in crowed places! (if you want help with how to get a shield, I would be happy to help!) I also see spirits I see them everywhere I go if they decide to manifest in front of me. Nine times out of ten they are harmless, but you may get some here and there that you just want to tell to go away. So when that happens just do exactly that, tell them in a firm voice that they are not welcome there and to go away. As for getting your abilities better under control and enhancing them try meditating, getting your chakras in line and most importantly follow your gut and heart! Good luck, and if you have any other questions you feel I can help you with email me at: christensenmelissa [at] ~ Melissa

Yes,you can inherit abilities. Meditaion helps to keep your abilities under control and to help improve your abilities. I haven't personal tried it myself but I hear it helps alot. When you are around a lot of people what I recommend you do is close your eyes and imagine yourself being in a bubble. I know it sounds funny but that is what I have to do if I am going to be around a lot of people because I don't feel that well when I am around a crowd of people and I am surround by their feelings. Well I hope that helps you out some. Have a great day. 😊

Yes I'm feeling that way too, that's because of the human evolution. I didn't know what's the problem whit me until I found out about the indigo, rainbow and crystal children. I guess if you have clairvoyant ability you must be one of us. Nice to find some who is similar to me:D maybe this links will help you




So here you can contact me if you want to

thanks for your response Kwayath. I looked up some excerpts from the book you mentioned and it looked really interesting. I may just buy a copy here shortly 😁

Can abilities be inherited? Short answer, yes. The book that helped me the most is "You are Psychic" by Pete A. Sanders Jr. He talks about 4 psychic senses rather than just 1, and covers a whole host of other things as well. He also includes his and his friends experiences throughout the book.

This is start, hope it helps,
