I will try to answer as many questions as I can but please understand that my answers are based on my experiences, beliefs, etc. & that nothing is set in stone.
I would also recommend that you search through this site & read the articles, posts, etc. so that you have a better understanding of things instead of just asking questions & receiving answers.
We have many Groups (Forums, Sections), just type your search into the Search Box at the Top Right hand side of Any page to begin your Search.
I would also recommend Reading the Empath Survival Guide (Program)
1. If my daughter is like this - spirits are attracted to her light - and I am like I am - does my son have some type of ability? I sorta feel like his abilities are more like mine.
You may want to contact the Intuitive that you just went to for assistance with this question since the intuitive knows about your abilities, etc.
2. If I go deeper into these beliefs of energy, psychic abilities,etc - will I bring dark energy into my family?
I don't believe so, but I don't believe that anyone who is a serious practitioner would "dabble" or attempt to do any type of Energy Work, Manipulation, etc. until he/she were trained & had a full proper & working knowledge of anything & everything they were about the area/field he/she was about to work , etc.
3. How do I know that my daughter is not suffering from some type of mental illness? Schizophrenia runs in my husbands family. What if schizophrenia is not what is wrong with his family - but they are psychic instead?
I don't deal in medical issues.
If you feel that your child needs to be seen by a Medical Specialist then I would advise you to go to one & seek the Medical Attention that you believe your child needs since you are your child's best advocate.
4. How do I develop confidence in my abilities?
Join development groups, circles, etc.
Look into classes, workshops (either in your area or online)
Research, read, practice, remain focus & diligent on your path & what you want to accomplish.
Supposedly they are really strong, but what if I tell someone something wrong?
No one is 100% correct, so if you tell someone something and it ends up being wrong, chalk it up to the fact that it's a part of life & continue moving onward.
5. Has anyone been told that they were one of the "ones who will change the world?" What does that mean? I had a stranger years ago- tell me that she was psychic and she breathed in my ear and told me I'm one of the ones who will change the world. Was she talking about the empathy thing or something else? I will leave this to the others on this site to assist you with because I believe that this is going to mean something different to each person.
To me it means that you have the capability to assist others in bringing on change, whether that be in their own lives or in the lives of others.
I also cannot speculate on what she meant when she said that to you because I have no clue.
When I tell that to someone I usually tell them why I believe they will be able to do this: Whether they will become a Doctor or saves lives or fight for Justice, Heal people,become an Advocate or an Activist, etc.
Yes it is normal to feel confusion & excitement, etc.
6. I have been trying to see my aura, what I see is blue with a thin green layer over it, sometimes I see red zigzags coming out of it. The intuitive said she saw a lot of dark red around my sacral chakra. Do people see different things - was I even seeing my aura???
Your aura can change & yes different people see different things & yes you may be seeing your aura.
7. A man was murdered in my apartment a long time ago. I don't feel him - the intuitive also told me he isn't here, but she said there are visitors here. I'm going to do a cleansing with sage - mostly to help my daughter. Should I do anything else or will that be enough?
I recommend cleansing withFrankincense& Myrrh but if Sage is your preference many people use it & say thatitworksfor them.
I would also recommend asking them why they are there & if they need assistance, etc.
There is a video that I recommend to anyone who wishes to clear a place & help their visitors with crossing over, moving on, etc.
Turn it on & allow the video to play in its entirety. I recommend that the place be as quiet as possible (no children, barking dogs, etc.) this way your visitors can hear the entire video without interruption & be guided to where they are meant/needed to go next.
