Thank you for your responses. Much appreciated! I may just have to take you up on that offer Arielle! I could definitely benefit from learning more
I'm having the exact same issue with my husband! This morning to be exact. He doesn't fully believe in my abilities which I have most recently found out. He is a logical thinker and honestly, I know in my heart he somewhat thinks I'm a nutcase. He would never come out and say it, but I definitely pick up on the fact that he thinks it's nonsense and I'm headed straight to the looney bin! I can't believe after almost 10 years of us being together that he feels that way about my epiphany! I totally understand where you are coming from Phyllis! It's frustrating beyond belief! I feel like if he doesn't embrace this gift/curse of mine, that we will not last. I am at a loss when it comes to getting through to him and that just sucks.
I found this site because a few days before I turned 35, I found out I was an empath. I always thought that there may be something wrong with me because my emotions just seemed to be haywire all of the time. I felt like there was something telling me I needed to find this out before I turned 35, almost like a birthright or something. Lately I have been constantly noticing 1:11 and 11:11 which means a spiritual awakening of sorts (from what a few websites have said). I have had prophetic dreams (mostly only when I was a teenager), I have astral travelled once (as a teenager) and feel I have telepathic abilities as well right now. I'm not sure why the dreams and astral travel abilities only happened as a teenager and not since. Since I have learned of my empathic abilities, I seem to feel "spirit" more. What I mean by that is goosebumps that last a long period of time when it's not cold and a feeling of being embraced by the cold feeling. I also constantly hear noises that cannot be explained. Not voices, just noises like knocking or tapping noises and they are mostly at night. In addition, I feel like I am being watched at night as well and followed closely up my stairs when I go up them. I'm not sure if this is an entity of sorts or a family member/guardian angel around.
I am wondering if there are ways to develop these abilities that I seem to have lost or "swept under the rug" so to speak because maybe subconsciously I repressed them due to being scared of them back then? Also, am I becoming more psychic or medium-like because I have embraced this gift/curse of empathic abilities? If so, how can I develop this more? I'm so confused with everything and I don't want to just chalk everything up to being "because I'm an empath". I am a very logical person and I feel like I don't have a viable explanation for these things I have been experiencing. Can these abilities be inherited from older generations? I hope someone can give me some insight into what I have been experiencing lately because I am just at my wits end lol. Thank you for taking them time to read this
