Well hello there!
I'm new to the group and thought I'd 'extend the hand' so to speak. We'll start with why I joined this group... am I an empath? To be honest... I don't really know... and I am a skeptical person by nature so I have my doubts, but at the same time I wonder... I get told things like, "you have an old soul", "I have this feeling of calmness when I'm around you", "you're easy to talk to and non judgmental." I feel like I can tell peoples intentions really easy and also easily read their personality types (Like if they are prone to be defensive). But I don't know if these skills are related to the fact that I am an empath or if it's a finely tuned skill I learned to cope with living with a mother who was bi polar and schizophrenic.
Other things about me;
- I'm a lucid dreamer and I know my dreams tell me things I need to acknowledge
- Street lights seem to regularly go out around me... so much so I once documented the occurrences but I'm not ready to say it means anything
- as a child I saw two weird things I can't explain; I once say a shadow that moved around a room I was in - I love this story... too long to go into details here but maybe I will share some day. Another time I was following a red orb on the 4th oh July... it led me away from my blanket and behind a tree where it disappeared. As I turned back to my blanket a rouge professional firework shot across the lawn and exploded near my blanket.
- I've had two odd experiences with death... once I got a very sickly feeling of death while driving with my step mom... within minutes she got a call that her mother died. Another time I dreamt my great uncle died... The dream repeated itself... When I called to ask my parents if he was okay, they told me his wife died.... That being said, I have had other times where I had no idea when loved ones have passed....
I am not willing to say the above mean anything more than a child's imagination or odd coincidence, but then again....? I don't know... but I'm willing to be open to the possibility
