One of the issues Spirituality has is that is often tries to exist in splendid isolation to the exclusion of all else, then these kinds of questions pop up and people look to Spirituality for answers. I hate to say this but what you experience has nothing to do with Spirituality and everything to do with your pre-historic origins.

And yes, the stress is the primary cause.

We have the Limbic System that is also known as the lizard brain and its primary function is survival. Having heightened senses is a survival mechanism, it's when your brain can be flooded with natural chemicals to heighten your senses to make you more aware and hopefully deal with the situation better. Since you feel the energies (I do too) they can be used for survival because they can help you process what's going on as much as your five senses.

Incidentally it works the other way around as well, so if you get a buzz from your Spirituality then you know it's your lizard brain flooding with 'happy hormones' to make you gravitate what it perceives as being conducive to your survival.

Your relationship with a psychopath would have triggered your lizard brain because it would have perceived a threat to your survival.

It's really a matter of focus of attentions, and when our 'normal' attentions are compromised often something that we don't give attention to comes through. So if you can't sleep your feeling the energies would become stronger, because your attentions are defocussed.

So, the moral of the tale is don't allow yourself to become blinkered to yourself. Spirituality is less about Spirituality than most people would believe, and that in itself is one of the greatest Spiritual gifts.
