Reading energy is something we are all able to do... those that use their intuition and those who shut it down.
Energy is energy and it is literally felt.
Developing this as a skill and relying on it is helpful for your journey as you grow and connect with others... this will help you connect with the people that are meant to be on your path and those who aren't.
If you feel something is off... it is. Never doubt your ability to read the unspoken languages of energy...
Listen to the truth behind the words that others use . If you feel yourself needing more confirmation - Simply ask... sharing certainty reclaims your position.
