    Megan, you are a sensitive - perhaps a big one - and you ought to develop your gifts! One thing you might do is to contact Susanne Wilson through Carefreemedium.com and tell her what you have told us - also feel free to tell her that I sent you!

    Megan, I'm so glad you found your way here. You may be stuck for now in a spiritual wasteland, but there are so many, many books written by the kind of people who would understand and support you. Start with Roberta's books and do some searches on Amazon or on your library site on topics like psychic gifts, life after death or spiritualism. I'm not sure about your state, but in many places in the US you can put in a request for a particular book at your local library and it's sent from other larger libraries for you to borrow. I was extremely psychic at your age (mainly precognitive), but I was lucky to have a circle of friends and acquaintances who supported my spiritual growth. And there were a number of psychics and mediums within an easy drive who I could consult and get advice from and, even more important, encouragement. Maybe this site will do that for you--I hope so. Are there any little New Age bookstores near you? I'd love to see you make face-to-face friendships that would help you to grow and develop your abilities.

    I have been doing lots of reading lately into those subjects. I have also been practicing daily meditation. From what I can find the closest new age bookstores are a state away from me. My local library is lacking, so much of my reading has been through Amazon. I would love to meet people near me for support and friendship, I think people who understand would be wonderful. Especially, since my family believes psychic abilities are signs sent from the devil. I believe that the meditation is strengthening my abilities, and I have had some more experiences since I was last here, not sure what I'd call them but they were pretty strange. Any books you could recommend would be great. I'm learning more and more by the day.

    Hi Megan and welcome to the forum. I can only share with you what I know or have learned.
    It was said that I am an "empath" who can "feel" others emotions or feelings but, thanks to psychotherapy, I realize that I feel my own hidden or repressed emotions which can seem to be coming from others but are actually inside of me. I may be an "empath" but my own early childhood bottled up and suppressed feelings are what I feel mostly. This all came from emotional therapy which revealed and array of hidden and repressed early childhood feelings that began to re-appear later in life. So I now see that while I might "sense" the feelings/thoughts of others, they are most likely my own thoughts/feelings being triggered by others or other things. If I become anxious, angry, frightened sad or even happy, it's due to what is already hiding inside of me more than what is coming from others or other things.
    As for books and references, look up James Van Praagh for deep and interesting insights into the Psychic and spiritual world or realms. I have found great benefits from both spiritual/metaphysical and psychology or para-psychology studies. Many apparently spiritual or mystical experiences are actually psychological events stemming from hidden or repressed feelings from early childhood. It's deep and interesting so enjoy the adventure of understanding your self (and others) through psychic/spiritual or psychological studies. Many reading resources are available now on line so you won't have to buy a lot of books.
    good luck..............

    This is one of the few occasions where ideas and thoughts from jimrich are strongly resonating with me. It confirms something communicated to me earlier this week which I have hesitated to write about because of the sensitive nature of the subject.
