As an empath, I've noticed over the years that I'm not only extremely sensitive to what people are feeling, but also to other living forms. Here's a story to illustrate the point:
I was once sitting in the house of some friends, admiring the lovely back yard area in their new house, when I had the distinct feeling of compression or strangling. I wasn't actually choking, but the feeling that I couldn't get enough living force, like air, was strong. I looked around and noticed that one of the trees in the yard, which had been stabilized with wire attached to posts for support, was calling for my attention. I don't know if it's possible for a tree to psychically yell, but this tree was doing something very much like that. I looked closer and saw that the support wires had grown into the trunk as the tree grew, and the poor tree was being starved of nutrients. I pointed out the wires to our friends (omitting the fact that the tree was still yelling at me), and they said they'd take care of it later. It was hard to ignore the tree's insistent "now, now, now!" but there are times when you just have to do your duty and let it go.
Yes, the sound you hear is the woo-woo alert bell ringing. Sorry, I should have warned you sooner.
