Since I was about 15 or 16 I've been able to sense the energy of an object; not just the energy charge into it, but more the - sense of a person surrounding the object.
I know I'm not being clear, so, example: I'd found two objects while I was out for a walk. One was a child's hat. The other was a coin.
Holding the child's hat in my hand, I could feel a warmth, a golden white shine like the cold, clear sun coming up early in the morning. Innocence, simplicity and happiness. This child is loved.
The other, the coin, was worn black on both sides; we've all had coins like that, I think - but when I picked it up I felt.. dirty, for lack of a better word. Not dirty because the coin was physically dirty; more like there was a cloud of heavy smog, grey and stagnant but turbulent at the same time.
Thinking about it, it seemed like the coin had traveled and traveled, but had picked up more negative than positive types of peoples emotions. The turbulent, stagnant feeling, the contradiction there, I've come to think is due to the leftover energy of many people.
My experiences aren't limited to those two - I've also picked up things and immediately dropped them, unprepared for the bad energy. Sometimes, a short while later, I meet a person with the same signature, the same one that was on the object. I think: 'That thing is yours.'
I guess what I'm getting at is this: I've been able to read the energies in things; more specifically, I've been able to tell - get a sense of what a persons' particular energy feels like by feeling it on something of theirs.
Is this making any sense? Is there a word for this? I'm hoping I'm not just a nutter..
And if this is a real thing, or - I know it's real but, if there's an actual term for it, or an explanation, I'd really like to know what I can do to increase my ability to do that. I can't pinpoint exactly why, but I feel it would be useful.
