Energy surrounds us and basically makes up everything we are. Some of us even have the ability of energy reading.

Reading energies

While some people are oblivious to the energy which surrounds them and which is also within them, some are not. Some are highly intuitive about this vibrational energy and can sense many things from just being near another person. Feeling a certain positive or negative vibe from others is not an imaginary sensation. There really are good and bad energies which flow through us all.

Obvious energies

There are some obvious energies which almost everyone can read. Emotional energies are pretty easy to determine if you can read facial expressions. With this knowledge, you can determine which people you choose to be around.

Keep in mind, those with negative energies can be highly draining. Those with positive energies can uplift. As far as deeper energy reading goes, or aura readings, there are indicators which show if you have these abilities. Here are the signs that you might have this rare ability to read the energy of auras.

Energy reading indicators

1. Crowded places are uncomfortable

Personally, I don’t like crowded places anyway, but when you can read energies, these places can be even more overwhelming. Just think, if you can read energies and there are dozens or more people around you, it can be severe.

You can absorb any negative energies floating around which could be detrimental to your emotional, mental and physical health. Sometimes being around lots of people is unavoidable, but when you do, make sure you’re strong enough to large energy flow that will come your way.

2. Your intuition is off the charts

Sometimes, I hate this one. I can sense negative human energies, and when I do, I tend to tell a friend or loved one as a warning. If they like the person, it causes conflict and they call me judgemental. I have learned to keep more of this to myself now.

When you are energy reading, sometimes you will pick up on bad feelings that you cannot identify. You just know there’s something off about someone. This makes you protective of the ones you love. Unfortunately, it causes friction at times too, as I mentioned above. Intuition is just one of the things that come with being able to read energies.

3. You are a human lie detector

Another gift of energy reading that’s hard to accept is being able to tell when someone is lying. When someone lies to you, their energy changes rapidly.

I have actually watched this happened many times. I can be carrying on a normal conversation with a loved one and they will suddenly change their tone, body language, and expressions. That’s when the lie comes out. Funny thing is, they expect you to believe it.

Whether or not you call them on this lie, it’s a sign that you are highly intuned to their energy levels. As they fluctuate, so does your intuition …thus detecting anything false or true.

4. Violence is hard to view

Now, this one isn’t so bad for me. I don’t really know why. But for some people who can read energies, they cannot stand watching any sort of violence on television. It can be violence on news reports, documentaries, or even a movie. The violence carries negative energy which can even be felt through the screen of the television.

Now, think about how hard it would be to view violence in real life. This one does bother me. I once witnessed a violent death and felt a surge of painful negative energy engulf me. It was a time in my life I will always remember.

5. You are often labeled as too sensitive

I cry all the time. I cry at sad movies, I cry when I miss someone, and I cry just thinking about memories of times long gone. When you are reading energies, sometimes the energies are sad ones, so deep and hurting that you start to develop a sensitivity like most people do not possess.

You feel deeper in all thing. This includes deeper love, deeper heartache, and deeper happiness. But it’s okay, let them say what they want. There’s nothing wrong with feeling deeply as you’re surrounded by everyone’s energies and auras.

6. You feel what others feel

There are times when you can actually feel the pain of others when they are far away. If a friend loses someone to death, you can feel the sadness as if it’s yours to feel. This may not happen all the time, but in some cases, it can be overwhelming to the point of shutting down for a bit to process where the feelings are coming from and what they are.

Have you ever just felt horrible for no reason at all? You could be picking up from someone else’s pain.

Energy reading ability is a gift and a curse all in one

Reading energies can be good and it can be bad. I guess it just depends on how you look at it and how you deal with it. Some people have tried to handle the constant influx of energy, and unfortunately, have ended their own lives to stop feeling.  I would never advocate such a tragedy. That’s just how deep these energies are, and this is, of course, the worst-case scenario.

Instead of suffering from energy overload, try channeling your energies into creative activities and helping others. If you don’t know where the energies are coming from, get into a meditative state to clear the mind so a different perspective can handle the energies for a while.

Energy reading is definitely a rare ability, but it can be helpful when people aren’t willing to share their feelings, lies are being told, or someone is hurting badly. When you’re able to read energies, you can provide comfort without questions. Sometimes your presence is all that’s needed to make a positive connection and unite energies in synchronicity. Yes, it can be done.

Can you read energies? Let us know about your experiences.

    Your not alone but you should keep it to your self as theres no way they understand they would think you are made unless the person you were talking to was very open minded , i know ive been through

    1. Sherrie Hurd

      I agree. I can tell bs before it comes through my door. lol

  2. Joka

    I am like this and anyone i tell i can be thus way they get mad or call me crazy

    1. Sherrie Hurd

      They get mad because you reveal things they keep in a secret box inside them.

  3. Brian

    Well don’t tell them then just observe them you can also learn a lot by doing just this if they can see its affecting you they do it all the more but you have to halt what your thinking and go into a passive neutral non thinking mode they cannot get at you this way or you just could walk away

    1. Sherrie Hurd

      I’ve tried many times to keep it to myself, but it just makes me sick to see negative energy from someone who lies about it. I think walking away is something you do have to do eventually if they never come to terms with their negative energies.

  4. Brian

    Remember the day you stop telling your self your not crazy is the day they can no longer hurt your feeling because people torture there’s self’s every day it’s only when they examine there own thought patterns eg why am I thinking like this do I need to think like this the answer is No. Everybody has a different rules and mindsets and values. I used to worry about what they thought but I don’t care anymore like the the great English mystic Stuart Wilde used to say. I am what I am and I accept that

    1. Sherrie Hurd

      Yep! In my twenties, I would let my ex-husband convince me that I was crazy. I would go to psychiatrists to pretty much get pills to help me ignore the fact that he was a cheat, drunk, and a liar. I would apologize to him when he would hurt me. Oh, there were all sorts of insane tactics he must have learned over his teens and young adulthood. I wasn’t perfect, but now, I know that I’m not any crazier than anyone else. I’m actually mentally healthier than a certain person who pretends they are normal. I think it’s kind of funny. I have mental disorders, yes, but I still stand up and tell the truth, accept responsibilities for my actions, and try my hardest to not pretend I am something else. I try.

  5. Melody

    Don’t stop FEELING!

    It’s not always easy to have this “gift”….Believe me. It might take a while but just try to receive and be proud of your wonderful feelings. Try looking and working on ‘grounding techniques” to help you along this journey. Let people have their opinion. They probably won’t understand. That’s okay. Keep praying and meditating to stay strong, loving and wise.


    1. Sherrie Hurd

      Is it really a gift, Melody, or a curse?

      I do ask myself this sometimes, and I secretly wish I wasn’t as intuitive. I feel like it would be easier to find peace.

  6. Ntombizodwa

    Everything said here about energy readers its all me, sometimes I feel bad that when I always try to explain how I feel about someone whom perhaps’s giving me bad vibes or a sense of energy reading, that person may either not take me serious, or not listen to me or sometimes I myself feel like some kind of a joke from the response i have gotten from them including body language, listening skills,interpretation skills etc. And then later on when I am alone I regret why I opened up but the feeling still doesn’t change because I know what I was talking about then I try to calm myself down by believing that the person I was trying to open up to is just not the right listener and so to every energy reading I pick up everyday I believe there is someone out there who is willing to listen to me.

    1. Sherrie Hurd

      I am listening. I go through the same thing. Just don’t you ever let them tell you that you’re over-reacting. You know when something isn’t right when you can feel it in the pit of your stomach. I get nausea right before someone tells me something I didn’t want to hear. So, no matter what, don’t let them brainwash you or gaslight you to make you feel crazy.

  7. Jennifer

    Feel other’s energy? Absolutely. See it? Not always as quickly as I’d like. Protecting myself from absorbing it is my weak spot. My kid’s, family and friends call me the emotional lie detector no matter where on Earth they are at that moment. Although I don’t always catch some suddle changes from very far, if you are or even recently were in the vicinity I’m usually spot on. Total stranger’s approach me and tell me their whole life story, it’s a little uncomfortable sometimes but rest assured the reasoning presents itself in time.

    1. Sherrie Hurd

      Uggh, knowing that someone is lying to me makes me physically sick, especially when they’ve done it a thousand times and thrown fits when I confront the lies. Reading energies is supposed to be a good thing, but lately, it has caused me so much pain. I think it just has to be due to my surroundings.

  8. Recovery

    I have noticed that when I meet random people I can read them by looking at them, and when they hear what I am saying they are shocked! I was around a few people and all of a sudden I began to become emotional and cry.

    1. Sherrie Hurd, A.A.

      You have a gift. Make sure you use it to help people. That’s why you have this gift.

      1. Brian

        Yes there are number’s of us with special gifts or curses I used to put it the in the same context but I was told by an Un for seen force but when I was only a baby old enough just able to pull my self up but reinened into the pram for safety it told I did not belong in my present body it said I had a gift that I would find difficult to cope with and that I would suffer great mental difficulty of which I have most of sixty years plus on this earth but I have accepted it along time ago sensing and feeling energy emotional turmoil is part of the gift seeing things from time to time is also part and parcel I don’t consider my self psychic but we ae something very different and I can relate to others that are and I havery an open mind

        1. Sherrie Hurd, A.A.

          Thank you for reading, Brian. I hope you can find a way to deal with these abilities. It’s hard sometimes, and you will be ridiculed for talking about them.

  9. Deborah

    All the way back to my earliest memory, which coincidentally was before I was born as per my mother when I told her of it, I have been able to read other people inside and out within five minutes. I am one of those people who have never met a stranger and am often ambushed into counseling time regardless of the location. I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders, which is more often than not, very depressing. At some point in my life, I believe in my early teens, I consciously made the decision to shut down all of my abilities to prevent the exhaustion and melancholy. When I did, I became a social butterfly. But it was fleeting and I retreated soon after. I hate crowds and all that being a part of one entails. I would rather just stay home. I will say though, my intuition is spot on and almost clairvoyant (knowing when the phone will ring and who is on the other end, knowing when something bad is going to happen, etc) which has aided me a lot in my time. I am at a crossroads now. People look at me like I am insane if I volunteer too much information despite being asked. It scares them and what a person doesn’t understand tends to do that. I’m trying to find the happy medium.

    1. Sherrie Hurd, A.A.

      Living with these abilities is hard to do. I have the same gift/curse…notice they are two sides of the same coin. From childhood, I knew things I didn’t want to know. It started as I was being abused at 4 years of age. No one believed me at first, but then my brother started to see it. Now, when I try to talk to him, he brushes it off as my mental illness and coincidence. I think, at some point, he shut himself off from those things, but it’s okay.

      Thing is, it has followed me throughout my whole life. I remember the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut which happened around 9:30. I worked the night shift, and when I got off work around 7, I stopped for gas and then continued home. I was driving home, which took about 10 minutes. Halfway there, I had to pull over and puke. I didn’t know why until I got home and saw the newscast. When I was feeling sick driving home, I also felt dread and a horrible foreboding feeling. The problem with it is, many times I have no idea why I feel this way until afterward. That is one of the millions of moments of my life that I’ve had to deal with this energy. You can see how it would be a curse. In other times, I have been able to stop my children from getting hurt, and this seems like a gift. It is what it is, I suppose.

  10. brian

    Yes mam i can relate too that dread feeling deep down i was traveling on a stretch of a motorway m54 for nearly three weeks it lasted like something was going to on a certain stretch of the mway i would hurry up and move into a different lane id get this feeling traveling in the opposite direction but my head would just glance to that section of the mway as i past then one day we just hearded off the mway a multipull vehichle crash had happened after that episode i felt ok traveling down that way a lot of people that get inutive warnings just ignore it i learned because of my crab water sign makes sensitive to any possible dangers heading my way keep upnthe good work

  11. Teresa Rowan

    I myself can feel energies and know exactly what’s going on in different peoples energy fields. I stay away from parties, busy pubs and crowded places as I would struggle with the harshness of it all. What was hard for me was the low vibrational ones, that are rampant upon our planet. I did not have to be in a room with these people to be effected, they may be walking past my house, and if these people had subjected themselves to drug abuse I would know, also the amount of entities that would attach to them, I could feel them in there aura. I found this very uncomfortable. Some times I have walked down the street and when these type of people pass by at close range, I would feel as if I had taken something. I always try to go to town early in the morning to avoid crowds. If people were feeling anger it always felt like stinging energy that would be whirling round. I use to get very down about all this, and I could not sit in a seat that somebody had vacated in a public place, if there energy field was a dark one . I have had a mountain of experences, but to many to write about. Yet on the flip side of the coin it has helped me to experience beautiful moments. Like the embrace of an angel who comforted me when I have cried. Or the radiant energy of a vibrant soul that is filled with love . Different energy spots in Nature. and also the many nature beings that are invisible to us. So I realised it is not a curse it is a blessing. And the way I now deal with all the harsh energies, is to keep my life as bright as possible and send rays of love and light into those darker situations that people find themselves enbroiled in .

    1. Sherrie Hurd, A.A.

      Teresa, thank you for sharing these things. I think you are a bit better tuned in to your abilities than I am. For the most part, the feelings I get lead to something, but then there are times when I never figure out why I feel certain ways. I can feel this foreboding, that’s what I call it, and I cannot always figure out why. Sometimes I feel it, then something happens. I rarely see what or who is in danger, and that bothers me. Maybe I cannot help them anyway, but it would be nice to know in case I might be able to.

      Then my dreams do the same thing. But I will agree with you on one thing. I feel the angels arms around me too when I cry. I ask them to come to me…and they do.

  12. Roxana

    I was just reading an article online and I started to imagine the voice inside my head talking in an Indian accent. When I looked up the name of the person who wrote it “Harini Natarajan” this women is Indian after realizing myself talking inside my head in that accent I looked up the author of the article thinking maybe I’m picking up from the energy of the person who wrote it and oh boy was I right! Creepy but cool I always knew I had deeper feeling than anyone else I’ve met and with that came this intuitive gift to pick up energy from even a written story online! Amazing

  13. Charlotte

    Honestly thought I had mental health problems for a long time because I doubted myself and my abilities for far too long , this should be a dream people would love to read another’s mind , but I can’t have a relationship because my significant other literally can’t think something without me knowing I intake everybody’s pain and anxiety It can be a lot if your around a lot of people the air can get very dense or even if there’s alot of suffering in the news and stuff the injustice really sticks with you , and there’s no way of explaining it to anyone with out sounding like your having a metal breakdown lol , if I met someone like me I think I would tell them to trust there selfs and learn to be your own best friend because your special and not everyone is going to understand you

  14. Jim

    Be conscious of your ego and be honest with yourself if you feel these energy reading siddhis are leading you to believe you are special. Everyone has this ability, but most just have their egos blocking the light with desires and fears. Know yourself, but identifying yourself with some power and feeling special causes separation from others and will not help you. Feel these energies with all your awareness blazing forth, become awareness and leave all other identities behind, this is the way to peace. Love all, because we are all one with consciousness.

  15. Cynthia

    I never understood how I just know stuff, how I could feel every feeling in a room or know exactly what was really happening when others would be saying the exact opposite. I heard the voice my whole life that would tell me things like ask him what is in his right pocket. People would calle crazy and my parents took me to drs that put me on horrible medications and diagnosed me as being severely bipolar and having psychotic tendencies. I have suffered a great deal of abuse due to being unable to keep what I now realize makes me special but was then told I was a freak and a looney. I’ve been hospitalized and tied down and force fed medicines I never wanted. I have been hurt in ways I can’t speak of because I saw the truth of something called a liar and now I have been cast out from everyone I ever knew and loved and called a devil. It hurts and I can’t keep from crying sometimes I think I want to end it all but can’t justify throwing away the gift of life I was given long enough to do something like that which would require an act of violence against myself. I am happy to discover I am not the only one I stay very isolated crowds of people are very distressing when I first go out I can adjust fairly quickly but not before panicking and wanting to run it takes a minute. I am now trying to learn how to manage it all but everyone I have reached out to has wanted to tell me I’m cursed and they can fix me for money that I do not have. Thanks for this I just needed to say it out loud sort of to validate to myself I am not crazy.

  16. Trish

    Thank you! I found this article while searching Google for “people who read energy”.
    I went on a road trip last spring and stopped by Meteor Crater Observatory. The woman who was leading the tour said she could read energy. She gave us a pebble-size piece of it to hold in the palm of our hands and held a magnet above it and the pebble would move slightly depending on our energy, she said. The thing was, she would tell you what kind of energy you had, first, and then do the experiment. The strange thing was that the pebble responded exactly how she said it was going to. She only mentioned a few types of energies that people could have. The reason I am researching this is because she said I have “special” energy. I was the only one on the tour that had this type of energy and I was curious that that is, like what does “special” energy mean? That is my question.
    It was a super interesting experience and the fun part was there was a young girl there, probably a teenager, who could see peoples auras. She said she had the gift and her mother had it too.

  17. Amit


    I know a friend who helped me in recovering from a relationship which hurt me. It was nobody’s fault.
    This friend can read energies. If she feels someone she can tell what they need to do yo clear the blockages. She told me some time back that I will be able to read energies too.
    And I think I am able to do it since 2 days as far as I believe.
    But she is not talking to me right now and I have some questions if you could answer.
    When she felt someone, she could point things like pain in left chest, or throaf, or some other organ and then deduce what it meant.
    Do you know what these signs mean?
    Like if I am remembering someone, I just felt a piercing pain in the middle of my chest for a couple of seconds, around 30 seconds, until I stopped thinking about them and started thinking about what is happening to me.
    So do you have something to say about this?


  18. R. Smith

    This has been getting extremely intense as time goes on. I noticed about 20 hears about when we moved to an area with a dangerous road with lots of horrific accidents. I would drive by the accident spot and start crying uncontrollably for no apparent reason. I would later read that every died in the accident… or a child was severely crippled and the parents were very poor. I started see 5:55 everyday twice a day until it was obvious there was something trying to communicate with me. Then the numbers went to combos of 911 ie 9:56, 11:54, 1:19 etc. as well the feeling of energy was becoming more heightened. It got to the point I could tell me wife the outcome before it would happen or the real reason for something and I would be right. I now realize I am exactly what the articles on Energy Ready describe. As a musician it is very bothersome to no longer feel comfortable in crowded or loud environments. This has been a blessing and a curse as after 22yrs I felt my wife start having an affair. I called her out that I could feel her energy being pulled away from me while at work… needless to say I was right, she was extremely pissed and is now divorced. Thankfully I knew better than to have kids with her.
    The sad thing is you can’t explain this to anyone. There is no way to understand it unless the other person has the mental wiring to comprehend. It’s different then understanding. So I a, alone with this now and will use it as my life’s Guide. I realize how strong my Intuition and Energy Reading is and will never ignore it again. If anyone knows someone well versed in Numerology, I really could use some clarity on these reoccurring numbers. I know enough to know I need to talk with someone about it. Thank you.

  19. Cody

    I’ve learnt to listen and be quiet and act accordingly, I let those people show me who they are and I’m right every time, surround yourself with those that have that and listen to you – you are with the wrong people if they ignore your abilities…. I randomly get anxiety through my body & I believe it’s actually something else that’s coming up in that day you sence it…. you obsorb it some how.. it’s not your energy your feeling makes me feel so uneasy and feel crazy but I know deep down its reading the energy… water block energy and nature obsorbs energy ! most people are unaware they are projecting…..

  20. Bill

    Just read this article… this is me! I want to learn more… I’ve been reading energies for most of my life and never knew what this gift was or exactly why I have it. If anyone knows where I can find more information or guidance on developing this gift to a higher level, please share! Thanks!
