    It's Been Helpful Over the Years.

    Some people would call it a sixth sense, or a physic ability; for me it just comes naturally. I like to think of it as something more primitive, like animal instinct. "Empathy" is a good word, I think. For as long as I can remember I have had the ability to read people...

    ... Though I'm Not Certain That They Are 'their Vibes' ...

    I have reason to believe that what I'm actually sensing is something to do with my own experiences / feelings that are resonating with the vibes other people may be putting off.  ( But it works out to the same answer after you carry the 0 -- it's just a more complicated...

    A Valuable Lesson I Learned

    I learned not to ignore the vibes I get off of people. I could read some bad things about people, and I would ignore it because I felt I would be a bad person if I were to cut them out of my life for the vibes I received. If I had actually listened to the things I read about...

    If I Stand Somewhere

    And tune into all that is around me, I can feel these vibes. I'd say their emotional vibes, the vibes are the person's emotion that I am feeling. It's really weird, but I feel it.

    Oh Yeah

    Even if it's subtle, and if it continues long enough, I will pick up vibes from people whether or not they expect me too. I have also experienced this on EP, especially those from my own circle since I try to be intuned with them whenever I interact with them.

    I Don't Know How Accurate They Are

    But sometimes I just get vibes from people. Since I'm ever shy I never approach them and talk to them and find out if a good vibe was really a good vibe or just my mind playing tricks on me. But I like to think that they really mean something. =)
