I've been trying to find info on my empathic ability. I'm able to feel the energy of music. It's hard to explain but an example would be Upgrade by Plaid. On the surface, it's just music but on the empathic level, the best way I can describe it is evolved music. It's like somehow the two guys who created the work managed to tap into a higher dimension and draw it down to our dimension. But I don't even think they realize that they did that. It's channeling through music. And the effect it has on me is that I feel like I'm being pulled upward. I can feel the effect in my heart on the psychic level.
Another experience would be with the song Sweetness by Jimmy Eat World. Expect this one is different. When I listen to the singer, I can feel what's inside him in me. But it's not simple emotions. It's deeper than that. It's him following his purpose and him doing so touches that part of me that's in tune with my own purpose. It ignites the desire to follow my own purpose. It's very hard to explain, I know. Sorry that this is so bad.
Yet another experience would be when I listen to Bernie Sanders speak. Last year when I first heard one of his speeches, I could feel the fire in him. Fire is the best way I can explain it. Not even sure I can call it a passion, it just feels like fire. The fire in him ignited the fire in me. Or I should say, it reminded of my own inner fire. That moment, above all others, is what convinced me that he was the right candidate. No, I won't get political, I'm just describing my empathic experience involving him.
Same goes for Gordon Ramsey. His passion for food is something I can feel on the empathic level. It reminds me of my own passion. Not exactly fiery, yet he definitely comes off like that, but very passionate. It's weird. I don't just only pick up on basic emotions. It's like I'm picking up on their reason for being. Maybe this is why I'm attracted to powerful people. Not sexually attracted, though. On some level, I'm able to pick out those who have that extra bit of something inside that just makes them fiery and it resonates with my own fire.
Is any of this making sense? It's weird, I know. I'm trying to make sense of it all. Trying and failing. Feels like I'm failing. I'm wondering why I feel as deeply as I do. Like, why does it need to be that deep? That part is really weird. I keep saying weird. Ok, gonna stop that now. Does any of this make sense to anyone out there?
