My experience living with OCD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Agoraphobia with panic (and mild depression and PTSD) during the COVID-19 pandemic A handful of months ago I was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (commonly referred to as OCD). I didn’t know I had had it for over the last 25+ years. It wasn’t until I confided … Continue reading My experience living with OCD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Agoraphobia with panic (and mild depression and PTSD) during the COVID-19 pandemic #covid19 #ocd #anxiety #mentalhealth

How do I cope with my absurdly high sensitivity? I feel so alone. The people that I connect with are just blown away by my already tempered response to them. I keep scaring people and have to cope with the feeling of losing a loved one every time.

There is a book called “The Empath’s Survival Guide” by Dr. Judith Orloff. It sounds like you might be intuitive and highly sensitive in the sense of also being an empath (someone that feels the energy of others, etc.). Her book might help you.

Why did I feel sad just because my mom felt sad that Princess Diana died, and then again when Paul Wellstone died? I had no clue who they were until my mother was so deeply distressed; does that mean that I’m an empathetic person?

Yes. And you are probably an empath as well (from a spirituality point - spirit like mind, body, spirit). Empath’s feel the energy of others. They also feel the emotions, pains, etc. of others. And I suspect you are an empath. Judith Orloff has a good book called “The Empath’s Survival Guide” which helps sensitive … Continue reading Why did I feel sad just because my mom felt sad that Princess Diana died, and then again when Paul Wellstone died?

Did you ever feel a pain in your body and found out that a distant loved one got hurt around the same time?

Yes. I am an empath, clairsentient and medical intuitive and I have experienced pain that was not mine. I mentioned the pain in a reading to someone and it immediately subsided afterwards.

At what age and how did you discover that you were psychic?

I was around 7 years old. I was dreaming premonitions that were happening in a horribly scary way. Then I started picking up the phone before it rang, knowing who was on the other line, clairvoyantly seeing spirits, etc. Of course, no one believed me back them. But fast forward 25 years and now they … Continue reading At what age and how did you discover that you were psychic?

Psychics, is it harder to read someone that is gifted (but unaware) like an Empath or an Indigo Child?

I find it is easier to read them and I know they are gifted immediately. I am an Indigo and Empath too. I am intuitive to the nines - a melding pot of sorts. And anytime I get a reading request from someone intuitive, Indigo, Rainbow, etc. I tell them immediately and they are always … Continue reading Psychics, is it harder to read someone that is gifted (but unaware) like an Empath or an Indigo Child?

I have the ability to feel the emotions of others and tell when they’re lying, something’s wrong, they’re distracted, etc. Is this unique?

This is called being an Empath. If you Google it, you will find some cool things about it. (I too am an Empath.) Reference: https://www.quora.com/I-have-the-ability-to-feel-the-emotions-of-others-and-tell-when-theyre-lying-somethings-wrong-theyre-distracted-etc-Is-this-unique

Is it possible to know when you are in a place where something terrible has happened?

Yes, you probably would get a “vibe” or intuitive feeling about it. And chances are you are correct. As everything in the world/universe is energy, if we are sensitive, we can pick up on things that happened and left energy imprints. 🙂 Reference: https://www.quora.com/Is-it-possible-to-know-when-you-are-in-a-place-where-something-terrible-has-happened

As an empath, do animals, especially canines, gravitate more toward you than anyone else around you?

Both animals and children tend to gravitate to me. Cats, dogs and little kids (especially those under the age of around 7). I have had little kids run up to me in the mall or at stores and approach me like they have known me forever and I have never met them before in this … Continue reading As an empath, do animals, especially canines, gravitate more toward you than anyone else around you?
