Got to thinking about this because of the very interesting empath thread ... Sometimes I "hear" what people are thinking. It's their voice, but in my head, just as real as if they had expressed themselves verbally. It doesn't happen all the time, and I don't deliberately try to "hear" people. It usually only happens if the thought is aimed at me, I guess because of the energy behind the thought. You won't hurt my feelings if you call me crazy; I'm confident in my own sanity. But here are a couple of examples: One evening, I'm sitting in my house minding my own business, when I "heard" my neighbor's voice. The first couple of words weren't clear, but then I heard, "completely irresponsible!" I hadn't spoken to her in a couple of weeks, so I didn't know what it was about, just that it was aimed at me. The next day it got back to me that she incorrectly believed I had left my little girl alone in the house and had been sitting there brooding about what a horrible, irresponsible person I must be to do such a thing. (Neighbor is a little bit off, always jumping to weird, awful, wrong conclusions about people. I don't take it personally.) Another time, I helped out with something at my son's school and donated some stuff. It was no big deal to me, but the teacher was really appreciative. When I left, she said thanks and then I "heard" her think " ... makes everything a thousand times easier." Later, she used that wording when she emailed me later, thanking me again. My daughter and I hear each other's thoughts all the time. Once she said out of the blue, "stop thinking about my geometry grade. I'm going to ace the test Wednesday, okay?" I had just been sitting there calculating her grade in my head. I don't know if she always "hears" me or just knows what I'm thinking. Another thing -- when she's out, I usually get a text from her within a couple of minutes of thinking that she should text me and let me know what's going on. So, is this more common than it seems? I'm guessing most people who experience this don't go around admitting it. I've always thought of this as a side effect of being an empath.
