Extra Weirdness

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.

Yes. I don't dream much but all of the others is "yes". I could be wrong but I think most Empaths are that way or experience the same things.   it seems like each Empath has at least a couple of the "Clair's" if they know and except it or not.    It's amazing when someone discovers the word "Empath " it answers a life time of questions.

Rene, thanks for your feedback. The few empaths I have spoken to in person did not have a most of the things happen that I noted above in their life. So I was a bit curious why I have this extra stuff and what it all means? I guess that's the big question of life. But good to know there are others out there like you that experience similar things.

1) this "I know you look" / "I know you reaction" happens to me sometimes with children or dogs (parents and owners are not amused). Most adult strangers rather avoid me :-)

2) I have a variation of this: I see people I haven't seen for a long time when I'm looking at strangers passing by (i.e. passing in a car). They look like these people but I know they're not them.

3) this looking at somebody to have the person turn her had is always working. People and animals feel if somebody is looking at them. You don't have the effect if you look slightly past the person.

4) this never happend to me. On some occations, I dreamt of situations though, that happed like this afterwards.

Thanks for everyone responding. I always thought that based on the 15+ different type of empaths categories that we all can be very different on abilities. But from the responses so far, we are actually very similar. 

I often feel like all eyes are on me when I am out in public (even when upon review, only a few are looking at me at random). And then some do approach me and are very direct and needy (wanting to talk and corner me with urgency to tell me their life struggles). Its very unnerving since I am a pretty private person. My immediate response is one of surprise and to defensively brush them off. I'll have to learn to be more like all of you and see if I can help people better. Perhaps that is my next step as a fairly new empath. But at the same time, I've had several people come at me like energy vampires. And after 3 minutes talking to them I felt like going home to take a nap. Being exposed to random strangers who may zap me of my happiness and energy is always a concern.

I have one more thing to add to my weirdness list as #5 that I wanted to share and see if others are having the same occurrences. I seem to have run ins with spirits quite often. I never really see them (although occasionally will see something out of the corner of my eye that disappears when I turn to look). What I do see a lot are dark spots a little larger than a basketball at knee level in low lighting that will appear and then disappear in seconds. I like to think they are the spirits of my 3 deceased golden retrievers, but who knows. But I sometimes hear low whispers when I am alone or asleep. And most often at night at my house I hear things banging around the ceiling and walls nearby. I used to think it was just the house but the sounds are almost like a hand slap on the wall and follow me at home and at the office. And sometimes I hear popping sounds all over the house that sound like kids playing with bubble wrap.

The latest thing just happened a few minutes ago at my office. I have a credenza that is about 5 feet tall behind my desk. And I have a fan that sits on top. I had the fan on earlier as I usually do and it suddenly leapt off the credenza and went sailing across the room falling to pieces on the floor. If it had just fallen it would not have fallen so far. It was if someone threw it. So while I'm thinking to myself that it was probably nothing, my unplugged laptop cord all of a sudden is pulled off my desk as if someone yanked it. 

I've had countless things like this happen all the time. I even had some spare coins that I dumped on my nightstand in a pile one night become an organized pattern by the time I woke up. And I've been woken up at night before by the feeling of things grabbing my feet or loudly whispering in my ear. I wish I could say it is loving deceased family spirits. But most of my family is still alive. And the occurrences are usually like someone playing a prank on me. I have nicknamed them trickster ghosts.

I'm just wondering if the rest of you have anything like this happen? And is it just me or does spirit activity seem to increase the closer we get to Halloween? And if so, any insight on why a man-made holiday is so attractive to the dead?
