Is feeling people's emotions/energy an hallucination?

I keep feeling people's energy/emotion when I'am out and about. I can feel when people are sad like a crying feeling or when people are aroused. I know high stress can make your senses go through the roof and you can pick up all kinds of signals from people. I know people talk about that you can maybe be a empath or something. But it seems it definitely relates to high stress or psychosis.

Anybody else feel like this?

I can totally identify with this. I don't know if it could be considered psychosis.

Yeah me too. I always thought i knew what people were thinking. Not in a psychic hear their thoughts way but just a sort of sensing their thoughts, feelings, emotions. But yeah i don't know what it is. Maybe its just perceptive? People tend to give out subconscious clues to things, maybe we subconsciously can pick up on this too?

Upon reflection. I think its one of three things:
1. A supernatural/psychic ability.
2. Some form of psychosis
3. An extreme form of normal. Theres mirror neurons that make basically make you feel how others feel i.e. why a smile is contagious. An theres even a empathy part of the brain. This is my prefered option, just makes the most sense to me that these regions of the brain are just over-active, like opposite of the lack of empathy in others, ie psychopaths. Found an article on the psychology website if anyones interested.

The question is, is it accurate? If it is a kind of psychosis it won't have much relation to the truth, while if it is a real empathic sense it may be more or less true. If I were sensing something like that, and it was consistent, it didn't disappear more often than not, I'd try to find out how true it was by doing a few tests.

On the whole I'd be quite suspicious that it would be some kind of psychosis, but then I have a long history of experiencing strange phenomena. If this is the first time something like this has happened to you, you should probably approach it with caution and some critical thinking.

An enhanced form of normal is actually quite a good description of psychosis... Psychosis seems to be when normal gets over excited, comes off the rails and starts doing its own thing which is no longer related to reason or the restraints of logic.

I personally believe its accurate. Ive had people tell me how well i understand them irl.
Perhaps that is the only difference is how accurate it is. I haven't done any spesfic testing out. Ive got no proof of complete strangers actual feelings. Asking random strangers how they feel to see if im right will probably come off a bit wierd. But those ive engaged in conversation have always noticed it.
For me it isn't something that goes away and comes back again its pretty consistant.
But then again i could just be delusional? Haha

I pick up on people’s feelings all the time. Anger and negativity can make me feel physically sick. This is not just in “real life” but on internet forums.
I have been told, and now believe, that this is because I am an empath. Empaths are especially sensitive like this. They also frequently “suffer” from mental health conditions. The experience isn’t delusional though.
Bliddy hell can you imagine what the average Mental Health Team would make of such claims.
Other threads on this forum have mentioned empathy in the last few days, seeing it as a positive trait.
One last thing, yes I do believe I am psychic. I’ve not specifically tested it out but have had enough experiences in the past to accept that this is the case.

What your referring to is EMP - electromagnetic perception.

The ability of the nervous system to detect faint variations in electromagnetic radiation. First order dendrites in their hundreds of thousands in the body essentially build up a charge on the surrounding tissue, this then opens the ion channels when 5-15mv is reached. neurotransmitter is then released at the synapses binding to receptors transmitting the signal to the brain via the ascending afferents.

It is very real.

Why some people have it and some don't not enough research has been done in this area. It could be down to:

1) Filtering in the nervous system & brain pattern recognition networks.
2) Some people are genetically different making their nervous system more sensitive.

etc.

Every living being gives of a faint multipolar electromagnetic field.

Etc.

Many species of life on this planet have it. It is the basis of how electroreceptors work they evolved from first order dendrites (exteroreceptors) to become specialised sensory systems in various fish, mammals.

Etc.

Try the battery test. Mobile phone test.

If you think you have EMP (electromagnetic perception). Give it a try.



Place the charged object on a table surface.

Close your eyes.

Move your hand around2-3inch above the table and see if you can detect the charged device.

Should get a tingling sensation in your hand as you pass over the charged object and hover directly above it.

It seems to be extra sensitivity in many parts of the nervous system.

Give it a try.

Icandoit, I have always done this and was taught by a very good and wise friend how to switch it off and protect myself. I think its about survival skills which we tend to ignore these days. Children do it and we switch them off. With XBOX and all that stuff, its harder than ever for people to feel like this. Tome its a gift and a curse.
