I Know What You Have DoneOkay, let me start off by saying that I am an empath. I'm not sure when it started or if it has always been a part of me. As much as I enjoy having this ability, it really can be a pain sometimes. But I'm not going to get into that now.
The thing that sets me apart from most is my other, stronger ability. I've only ever heard of one other person who can do this so, if you can too I'd love to hear about your experiences. Anyway, when I touch someone, when my skin comes into contact with theirs, I get 'flashes' of their past. Usually it's just a quick glimpse into some random memory that I see in third person. But I've discovered, with permission from an old friend that, if the contact continues I can see further and deeper into a persons past. Sometimes future, but not usually. With that old friend I was able to actually reach back into one of their past lives. That was later confirmed by someone more adept in past life regression than myself.
Over time I've been able to learn to 'shut it down' for a small amount of time. As well as growing strong enough, for want of a better term, to be able to 'recreate' a persons energy and do a long distance reading.
