I have been a long time lurker and posted a few times but now I have a question and do not know where to ask it.
So I will need to explain what happens and hopefully someone can tell me what it might be.
It is a feeling I get when in certain interesting new places when thinking about who was there before me, the easiest way to explain it is to give an example.
So one of the places was an abandoned gun emplacement on a hill, lots of tagging on everything. It was my first time there and I was allowed to go for a walk around by myself. It was nice and quiet and my feeling was interested/curious/uneasy/cautious. I would look at the tags and imagine each person spraying it and try to think of how they felt being there and what they were doing. I looked at the ashes of a fire lit in a corner, imagined the people who lit it and what they were doing and feeling. I did this for broken bottles, empty spray cans and anything that I could think about or imagine it's history. I'm not sure why I do this, it's kind of a curiosity I guess. Often when the area I am in is quiet and I can look at a few different new things and I mix my feelings of being in that area with the feelings I imagining the people there before me had I get a really strange feeling that is hard to describe. It seems as if my vision is no longer my main sense and my main sense is feeling. It kind of hits me as a feeling through my whole body almost like I am connecting with the place I am in but it is very brief, maybe a couple of seconds and it does not give me any specific feeling, just an odd feeling. Does anyone else get this and know what it is?
I have had a similar experience in an abandoned hospital nurses quarter, the same hospitals bathroom, an old house, entering peoples houses for the first time etc.
Appreciate any help
Thanks you for your reply, I recall hearing about empaths but obviously read about it a while ago. I did a google search and some of the empath qualities do apply to me. I feel that the qualities used to be stronger especially being able to read people. I used to always be able to tell peoples motives etc. but now not so much. I guess I have shut off to most people, my spiritual side has not been worked on for a while. Unsure if it is related but I really dislike small talk, it seems so fake. Anyway I do not think I have been to those places before but interesting you should say that because it made me remember something else. It does feel a little like the feeling of déjà vu. It does not feel like the event or experience currently being experienced had been experienced in the past but it is a similar sensation.

First, hello. You sound like a very deep person. I was thinking that you sound like a STRONG empath. It also crossed my mind that you may have been at these places before eiither in a dream state or another life, etc....I've been wondering as of late myself about the strange places I am in my dreams because they are so detailed but I don't know where they are....Or the people who are there....Like I am traveling when I am sleeping, Could you have done something like this too? Just a thought....

This is just my opinion. I am in no way any kind of expert on this stuff. That being said, I think that you have some gifts. Yes you can strengthen these gifts through use if they are real. But be careful about revealing this to the wrong people. I do not want to make you paranoid but say if you were talking with a shrink he/she might prescribe something to dull down these gifts.
If you decide to exercise these I would like to know the results after some time at it. You are free to pm me with the results if you do not care to post them.

Hello, my friend.
To my knowledge, you are allowing your body-mind to feel the energies that still lay there. You can understand how I am if you take a step back and think of space-time, rather than time-space.
When you were in that room, you are in the moment. It is not a 'future' moment..but THE moment. Essentially, to my understanding of it...You were allowing yourself to 'take yourself back in time' to the exact place you are in..and absorb the vibrations and energies that were present in that present..which is now 'your' present. Follow?
(My explanation may be confusing..but I am trying to explain and understanding that is not complete)
Is there anything else you can tell me about this? Is it possible to make it occur easier or last longer?
