I am a fairly new empath. And I fit the emotional empath definition to a "T". But I have some extra weird things going on that I wanted to share to see if anyone else has this happen? Here's what I characterize as extra weird experiences:
1) When I am out in public, strangers will seek me out and then talk to me like a long lost friend. It doesn't matter where I go, it happens all the time. Its like being some sort of spiritual rock star with people watching and approaching me. Sometimes strangers watch me and give me that "I think I know you look", but don't approach. While others come right over like they know me and are so excited to talk to me that they excitedly give me their whole life story. Sometimes its no big deal while at other times I can feel them draining my energy.
2) The second thing that I feel is weird is that throughout the day at times names of friends and customers who I haven't spoken to in a long time will randomly pop in to my head. Its always very subconsious and makes me think where did that come from? And then either minutes later or a day later I will get a call, text, or email from that very person. I'm wondering if I caused that or whether they were thinking of me and I picked up on that.
3) Often I will be looking at someone from behind in a crowd and they will spin around as if I called their name. This is also very subconscious as it doesn't work when I try to do it. But if I'm sitting in a movie theater and am deep in thought I might think that lady has an interesting hair style or that guy looks familiar. And very often, particularly with women, they will spin around and look right at me. I could be right behind them or across a mall. It always works the same.
4) I will sometimes have dreams where I meet a woman (its always a woman for some reason). Its usually a very low-key non-event type of dream where I'm being introduced to someone in the dream. I don't usually remember many dreams but I always remember these ones clearly. And then in real life I'll be in a store days later and will cross paths with that exact same woman from my dreams (someone I have never met before). And when we look at each other there is a look of recognition from both of us. I'm always speechless and don't know what to say to her as I don't want to come off as some creepy stalker. But I'm always hit with a sense of both "deja vu" and "what was that about". On a related note, I will say that my wife and I met on a blind date. And the night before we met I had the same type of dream about her eventhough we had never met before.
I'm just curious if anyone else has had any similar things happen to them. i'm trying to connect the dots and find meaning and purpose to why these things happen. I appreciate any input.
