Yes, exactly! I cannot handle being in crowds of people unless I am medicated. It is like not having any skin and having all kinds of things assault
you on many levels. You can pick up on so much in a crowd: Fear, hate, love, happiness, depression, sadness, anger, self-indulgence. I can be in a
crowd and I swear I can look at somebody and practically hear what they are thinking. It may be the ability to see subtle body language, and of
course the eyes are the mirror of the soul.
I have had pet dogs, and now cats, that can tell when I'm thinking about possibly giving them a bite of my dinner. They stand at attention and
start to drool. There must be something subtle in my behavior which changes with my thought pattern. Perhaps being an empath is being ultra-aware of
My husband has the same issues, so we live in the middle of nowhere, and hardly go anywhere, and this makes us peaceful and happy. Too much social
stimulation leaves us both irritable and exhausted.
YES. it's crazy.
I'll be eating and when I get down to the last 1/4 or so of whatever I'm eating, she gets up from where she is, and sits down RIGHT next to me and
starts getting all excited. (sometimes I'll let her finish the plate, other times, give her pieces, other times nothing.) but she won't even be
looking, but as soon as it gets down to that last but, she's she FREAKS and comes over to get some xD.
she also knows when I'm about to go outside, and won't go outside unless I'm outside.
she knows that If I'm outside and I have my computer and cigs on the table outside and then walk inside without taking them, that I'll be back.
as SOON as I start packing up she RUNS to the door to go inside with me.
and she'll NEVER let me go inside or outside alone, she ALWAYS shoves her way through the door. (she's sturdy
my dog also never used to chase bunnies/squirrels/any animals, and I was like. CMON DOG, ACT LIKE A DOG.
a few days later, she's chasing down animals in the yard.
she also NEVER used to bark when people came to the front door. me and my dad would be like. WAT R U DOIN?
because I'd rather have a good guard dog that barks at people coming to the door rather than one that lets intruders in.
now she barks at people that come to the front door.
it's insane. dogs can sense a lot. I never knew... there's tons more instances, but really. it's surreal...
are they dogs? or are they Gods?
and also, to contribute to the general idea/main post.
I've felt the same, but not that I SENSE anything. I can just tell. from the way they say it, the way their voice changes/sounds, how they say it,
how long it takes them, etc. body language. the way they phrase things.
