Hello fellow empaths! I need help figuring out something that has had me wondering for quite some time now. Ever since I can remember, I've been a pretty sensitive person. I was shy when I was younger but have since grown out of that. Now, I'm a fairly outgoing person and will strike up a conversation with just about anyone. My friends and even strangers find me an easy person to confide in. I liked to say I have pretty thick skin but have come to realize this is quite the contrary. When I step on someone's toes (figuratively of course) I feel it just as much. I always criticize myself for being overly emotional and find it strange if I don't cry at least once within a given day. I often times will feel myself getting sad, angry, or upset out of nowhere due to no feelings of my own but just as quickly as the feeling came about, it's gone again in a heartbeat.I can feel the energy of others resonating in a room and rubbing off on me, my loved ones more so than anyone. When I walk into a room, I can feel the imprint left by the previous people in there based off of the energy they gave off, especially if its negative. I get this heavy feeling in the pit of my stomach, comparable to a "gut feeling." When something is wrong with somebody but they speak no words, I always find myself asking "are you alright?" Only to figure out at the moment or later on that the heavy feeling in my stomach was correct and that there was something troubling them.I've always had this weird sort of extended intuition where I will think about something or jokingly mention it and it will happen. Often times, there's anoter gut feeling associated with this but it isn't always a heavy feeling. Half the time, I'll find myself thinking about an occurence that happened and get that same feeling in the pit of my stomach as whenever whatever it was happened. For example, I was driving to work one day and thought about a particularly busy evening. When I got there, it was like a repeat of that same night. Another example is a time where I lied to my parents about quitting a job and one night I had a heavy feeling, afraid they were gonna find out the next day and that very next day we got into a fight about that very thing because they figured out I had been lying to them.Another feeling I get is with people. One night at the gas station, I wanted to buy cigarettes after a busy night at work and I glanced over at the guys next to me and got a weird feeling about them. As they walked past my car and looked at me for a brief moment, I decided I didn't want to go inside until they were gone. It was like a weird kind of feeling like I felt as if they were thinking negatively of me or had just got through talking about me. When I went in, one of them looked at me for a moment before exiting. Come to find out later that night, my boyfriend got into a fight with that very guy for something he said about me.A few more examples are things like turning the TV on to the show Cops and getting pulled over as soon as I left my friend's house, after I had joked about it. Or having this weird kind of mental telepathy with my boyfriend and my good friend. Another weird one is asking a question about something random and seeing that same thing on TV later on or getting an answer a few days later.Its as if others' emotions rub off on me and I feel them too. Not to an overwhelming extent, though. One other weird thing I get is like an emotional hangover sort of deal. I find myself needing a couple of days at least to recover from a bad day previously, like it actually making me feel sick. I don't know if I'm just strange or whatever, or if it's just wishful thinking, but I feel as if my intutitive and emotional side could be linked to some psychic ability, as minor as it may be. Any response would be helpful! Have a wonderful evening, lovelies.

Greetings Haley,
I'm the exact same way. Person, place, or thing, doesn't matter, I will absorb the energy.The only problem I have is the energy I perceive from people. Overwhelming is an understatement! When I enter into a place I can automatically sense whether there is "anyone" still lingering around and I will have a feeling in the pit of my stomach, regardless of whether it's good or bad. The worse part is that I haven't been able too distinguish how I know what I know. My mind never shuts down. I don't know how to use these gifts and I am so frustrated. Explaining what it's like to family and friends, well that's a joke! Thank God I found this support for Empaths & Highly Sensitive People!
Trust me you are not strange, honey!Just very open, just as myself and many others. I too have to go and be alone, just to recover from the ordeals of everyday life! Then I am labeled antisocial, mentally ill, ect...lol
Recently I have begun to see "Auras" and I'm thinking, great, something else to understand! I use to believe that I really was mental and saw numerous psychologists, only for them to say that I was just a highly sensitive individual who happens to be very intuitive. I have always had a sense of knowing that I am different from so many people, but the sad thing is that when I say different, I labeled myself as a freak,because I didn't know any better! Heck,it's only a few years back that I even heard of the word, Empath! Now that I know that I'm not a freak,I am reading everything I can get my hands on to understand the situation and how to be a healthy and thriving Empath and Sensitive! The fact that you mentioned telepathy, makes sense to me, because I am the same way at times.I too will get this sense of foreboding, and I will have to call and check on friends and family members to make sure that all is well with them.I will try to explain that something is wrong and they'll reasure me that they're fine,but I know that it's not! A few days will pass and I still have this "knowing" that something is going to happen. Then I would find out that a person who knows my friends or relatives had something happen to them.Once that happens, my sense of foreboding is gone.Please forgive me if I am jumping all over the place, I have a tendency to do this often.My opinion is that it's because of my sensory overload. Are you the same way, Haley?
I will be ending this message with the following message, "You are not wierd, strange, ect...just a very gifted individual!" Stay beautiful and open girl,and let your light shine on the world, my dear!
With Love and Respect,
EkkoStar

Oh, don't worry about jumping all over the place. That tends to be something I do only all the time. I get that sort of foreboding you described in addition to other experiences that are more personal or completely trivial. It makes me happy that you shared this with me, especially given the similarities. With the exception of seeing auras, everything you described were familiar to me. I appreciate your response!

Yes of course! And I'm a writer, so I understand the dynamic of straying from the original thought that was being explained. Feel free to chat with me anytime. You truly are a lovely person.
