Empath… Torture

I felt a man die this morning
. As it was happening.. He was rushed to open heart surgery.. He didnt make it and the time they called it i was feeling everything… The sad part.. I dont really know the man… I believe the energies passed to me through his wife yesterday.. When i handed her his paycheck… Anyway why would i feel something from someone i dont know and not be able to do anything about it… ?
