I’ve always thought that I wasn’t normal, until I realized that some of my emotions may be due to being slightly empathic. I cannot watch movies that are sad because I start sobbing hysterically. I absolutely cannot watch those spca commercials where the animals look so sad or feed the children commercials. Its really embarrassing trying to watch a movie with other people. Or if someone cries in front of me I get extremely emotional and start crying myself.
I cannot be in crowds. If I do go into large crowds I start having panic attacks. I’m very susceptible to others moods. If someone is in a really rotten mood it effects me before they even speak. I start to feel very irritated or angry. I always have good instincts about people. I can usually tell if someone is really bad the instant that I meet them. I just get a creepy feeling, or either I feel very drawn to someone only later to find out that they’re a really great person.
The problem that I’m dealing with is that I am a Christian, and I’m very confused about the paranormal. I realize that mainstream Christianity teaches that psychic abilities are demonic, and that all hauntings are demonic. I’m not a catholic, but I tend to think that they are correct in their philosophies regarding the paranormal. It seems that many of them accept the paranormal and that not all hauntings are demonic, but I don’t know what their theology is concerning these things. I cannot understand how a person can hang around after they die. I’ve always been taught that you either go to heaven or hell.
I have a very strong religious conviction, and honestly I can’t find anything in the bible that outright says that it’s demonic. I know that Samuel banished all of the mediums and seers from the land of Israel. So why are Catholics more open minded about this? If anyone could help to clear some of this up for me I would so appreciate it. I really struggle with thinking that I’m believing something that isn’t pleasing to God, and I’m just confused.
I really am not interested in anyone trying to persuade me into believing any other religious beliefs. I only want someone who is also a Christian and has had these same struggles to clarify for me. And please don’t think that I am judging anyone here or their experiences because of my religious beliefs.
I have been reading stories on this site for a couple of years now, and this is the first time that I’ve written or asked for help. I really don’t want to insult anyone, and I really don’t want to be insulted. That’s not why I’m here. But I really need help! I need help in learning to control these emotions as well, if that is even what is going on with me.
Thanks everyone, and I love this site. I’ve really enjoyed the many stories that I’ve read!
