Your energy smells funny.
I work with analogies. I think in analogies. It's near impossible for me to explain things without analogies. So here we go:
You, right now, as a human being, have your own, distinct, personal odor. It may be strong, weak, flowery, garlic-y, whatever. You may pour it out when you sweat, or not, but it's there. Someone with an awesome nose who is familiar with you can probably pick your dirty clothes out of a pile of a bunch of peoples' dirty clothes. You could take two identical black shirts and have two different people wear them and you'd still be able to tell who wore which one unless you have a crappy nose.
But here's the deal: most people are used to their own scent. You may be working up nothing more than a light sweat, but to another person, you may reek. Someone else might even be turned on by the smell. But most people, working, playing, going about their day-to-day business, are entirely used to their own scent that they don't even realize it's there until they've sweated their ass off.
Can we compare this to energy? There have been several times I didn't even realize my energy was different until someone had pointed it out to me. Some people are appalled or repelled by the way my personal energy is, while others are attracted to it. But I'm never seriously aware of it unless I'm working with it hardcore.
I dunno if this is something that everyone does. I'm sure some people will state that they're always aware of their own energy, etc, but hell, it took me ages just to figure out that hey, I'm giving off the same "scent" or "energy" that I spot in fae all the time. I was aware I had energy, I was aware that my energy was a bit different, but it was like being an orange, looking at other oranges, and calling myself an apple. Eventually I just looked in the metaphysical mirror, so to speak.
Anyone else with similar experiences? Has anybody suddenly came to a conclusion that their energy "reeked" or was "pleasantly nice" to someone else? XD
