Psychic Q & A : I feel people’s pain, am I crazy?
Each week I take a question off my Facebook wall to answer here:
This past week Shelia B Writes:
Hi there. I’m Shelia and I’m 19 and i was wondering if you could help me understand what’s going on with myself a little better lol.
i’ve always had a really strange connection with people and their feelings.
Like when people around me i feel their emotions and can tell what kind of mood they’re in right away because being around them would make me in that mood too.
I can tell when people are lying and i know exactly how they feel when they’re talking about something.
I’ve always thought i was just overly understanding but recently something traumatic happened to me and it changed the way i look at life.
I was sexually assaulted and now the feelings are much stronger and i physically can feel people’s pain.
When someone i’m around isn’t feeling well it makes me feel that too.
there are sometimes when i’m out and i see someone and i feel like i need to talk to them because i know they’re so sad and i get this feeling of anxiety in my stomach that forces me to ask them if they’re alright and they always say no and express to me what’s bothering them and they feel better after talking to me and the anxiety in my stomach goes away.
Am i crazy?
No Shelia, you are not crazy just very sensitive and empathic.
Learning discernment and how to shield will help you be able to separate out what is yours to deal with and what is not yours.
And help you feel more comfortable and not as all over the place.
You can’t take away their pain but when you get better at recognizing why they are in pain you can say hey, if you let go of this you can feel more balanced and make a shift.
Reading Energy Flow
This comes with time and training your self to read energy flow. Everyone is emanating energy all the time.
It is readable if you know how to interpret it.
The best thing to do is find some training, there is lots of opportunities in different mystery schools including my self mastery apprentice class.
Search online and in the library too.
A wonderful resource is Barbara Brennan’s book called “Hands of Light”.
It is sort of difficult to read but has a lot of good information.
There are some good Reiki books that explain a lot of this too, like Essential Reiki by Diane Stein.
There are lots of other good books in the public library that you can search through in the spiritual and metaphysical section that will help you understand more about your natural self.
Knowledge is power! The more you understand the more you can step up into your naturalness with balance and grace.
Then you can make a positive impact on your community.
We all have some little grace that can help the world, it is often difficult to shape that grace and get it in a place that it can be helpful.
I had a hard time coming to terms with how the spirit world could be a blessing to others. 🙂
It wasn’t easy for me to figure it out but I researched it read everything I could, experimented where I could and finally sorted it out.
What once was awkward is now a blessing.

PS: I have some of these books in my Amazon Book Store on my “Purchase a reading page” at the very bottom as well.
