Last week I was rooting around in my basement and found some old objects that my late Oma had in her apartment. One of them was a small metal tin with loose tobacco in it which, when I picked it up, I was overcome with such an extreme level of emotion that I began to cry. It was like there was so much energy and pain attached to this tin of tobacco... I've never experienced that level of energy with an object before. I had a feeling that the tin belonged to my Opa, and after some more searching, it did indeed belong to him. My Opa passed away 20 years ago.
The second part to this experience is the day after touching the tin and having such a reaction, I felt like a completely different person. It was like the energy from touching the tin had transferred into me. I also kept smelling a sickeningly sweet scent - my Opa died from diabetic ketoacidosis which has a symptom of "ketoic" odour, or sweet/fruity scent. This lasted about two days before I felt like my normal self again.
Is it possible to channel emotions and embody them just from touching an object? It really got to me and scared me a bit. Now I'm terrified to even touch the tin so I don't experience that again.
