To feel safe and filter out any negative energies or intrusive astral visitations when I sleep I set up an energetic filter of sorts. This is represented by a quartz chrystal in each corner of my room. This may seem odd but a while back I was having dreams about my Ex. Eeew. I didn't want him in my life and definately not bugging me in my dreams. I was also being threatened by a vengeful narcissist who was actively trying to hurt me through computer attacks and, what he called, black magic. I didn't care for that either. I saged ( used a sage smudge to cleanse and clear) my computer and my room. ( I left one window opened a crack to let the negativity drift out and be dissolved.) I also "charged" the crystals by leaving them in the moonlight and setting the intention that all negativity sent my way would be transmuted into wanted things and wealth for me.
This energetic and crystal barrier worked amazingly well. Any negativity or harm directed at me simply became fuel for things I would like and I was able to sleep peacefully. As soon as I set it up people brought me home made cookies randomly, I kept finding money on the street and I would get the best parking spaces everywhere I went! I no longer get weird spirits wandering around waking me up.
To fix exhaustion and heal unhealthy attatchments I first Heal and Seal any psychic leaks, then I look with my intuition to see who is draining me. I visualize pulling out thier hooks or sever any cords between us and send thier energy back to them. I can actually see streams of differnt colored mist or ribbons flowing back to the person. Finally, I call back my energy and it usually comes billowing back in great fluffly pink clouds, beautiful and Huge! I love this part because it feels so invigorating and blissful to have my energy return to me. It feels like a rush of love and I even have to sit down it is so intense. Often the exchange of energy is very one sided. Me giving lots of lovely energy and they sending stingy tainted strings of underwhelming Meh. From this point I will create a bubble of protection around myself so they can't re-attatch. Lately I have been making the visualized bubble wall clear and very thick. That seems to help me maintain my energy level and discourage others from leaching off me. I used to pray for the other person and heal and seal thier energy tears and leaks, but I don't bother anymore. It is funny, whenever I have removed and healed a bad attatchment to someone they call me up on the phone, out of the blue. I have often ignored calls and attempts ot contact me online for a time to create some space and new boundaries.
Thanks for reading. Please share any fun Empath hacks you use. I am fascinated by them.

It was just before the cashiers lunch break. Her relief cashier had just arrived and stood by looking over the tiny woman's shoulder as she processed the customer's sale ahead of me. I could feel her exhuastion, her hunger and her sadness. She seemed beaten down and now to have the relief cashier irritated and nit picking her, I could feel her slide even further into overwhelming dispair. I placed my box of screws and can of paint on the check out counter and decided to try a little empathic/ psychic experiment. I love bombed her.
I brought myself into a meditative place of calm and kindness then prayed, called, summoned, whatever you call creating energy. In my mind I focused on that little cashier and asked God/ Source of all unconditional love how she looked to Him. I asked that I could travel through time and feel how her parents, her lovers, her baby, all of them; how much they loved her. Then I poured that energy vibration of adoration over her .
She went from dragging items over the check out scanner with downcast eyes to suddenly alert and surprised. She looked around her, smiling like a young girl in love as if searching for her lover in the crowd. She had felt it! She not only felt it but the energy of love had transformed that middle aged sad lady into a sparkling girl in seconds. She laughed, looked at me and finished the sale just beaming with joy. Her relief cashier even asked her what happedend.
I have used this technique on crying children in the grocery store too. It is fun. It doesn't leave me drained or tired like Reiki can sometimes. Sending someone a love wave or love bomb has become a hobby for me when I have to go in to crowds.

I am a mature Empath now. Navigating through crowds and discerning my emotional stuff from others stuff is easy nowadays. I was 16 years old when I discovered that not everyone can feel what other people are feeling and thinking. I did spend a lot of time trying prove what I was experiencing was real in the early days. Back then there were no resources or internet or even discriptors for what was going on in me. Psychic was the closest word.
I got really good at helping people. I thought that was my calling. Why else would I have these talents and gifts? I sucked at maintaining good and healthy personal bounderies. I helped untill I had nothing left to give. I tried to dull out the empathic abilities in bad ways. I was dissolusioned and sad. I allowed myself to be the listener, comforter, healer, hero and helper. I discovered that rather than being able to ask for those same kindnesses in return I just got used, and those that loved the attention and care would vanish when I needed help and tenderness. I began to question mt psychic abilities.
Here I am now in my 50's so comfortable in my sensitive skin I can hardly believe it! I am getting better and better at saying "No." I have tools and techniques to filter out the energy vampires and minimize the negative impact that harsh emotional clutter can cause. I am making peace with who I am. My most delightful moments have been when I've met Empathics like me in casual life. It no longers bothers me that I can taste what some one is eating on the other end of the phone. I can tell if a friend or family member is freaking out and I don't let it control me.
Hello fellow sensitives, psychics and empaths. I'm glad to know you. You are loved.

A few days ago, I went on a wild astral adventure for the second time in England, where I could feel the British weather on my skin and see the architecture and even a metallic blue back beetle I had never seen before. Both "dreams" surrounded a friend named Nick who lives in England. Apparently, I travel to him on occasion because this is the second time I woke up with a recollection of where I had been. But the first time I had traveled out of the country, even though it was psychically. Being someplace astrally is way different than being someplace in a dream state. I could feel that I was there and recall the architecture not because I am remembering a dream, but because I saw it with my own eyes.
This experience was surrounding him and his fiance, Dannie. I saw lots of symbology in the dream which told me they stood for something. I interacted personally with Nick for the first time(we are internet friends) and also interacted with Dannie. I suppose he was taking me on an adventure showing me details of how he proposed to his girlfriend. I saw a small toy sized pool which upon sight instantly told me it was a symbol for a small body of water. I also saw a banjo or guitar that he was playing for her. We also all went to see a movie together, but I couldn't remember what movie it was. I woke up thinking it was a franchise and not a one time, no sequel movie.
Lastly, we were suddenly in my old bedroom back in Brooklyn where most of my dreams take place. I remember walking into my bedroom where I saw him and asked him if I can give him a reading. We are Facebook friends, so he knew what type of reading I meant because I talk about my being an empath and having all sorts of wild dreams. He said yes, of course. When I awoke, this told me that Nick would be receptive to my giving him what my dream self saw as a psychic reading. I approached him in a message on Facebook asking if I could ask him some questions regarding a dream I just had. He said of course. I without a doubt believe I had an astral experience where I got his permission to give him a reading which he did agree to.
The small body of water was confirmed to be a lake in London outside a hotel where he proposed. The movie was Guardians of the Galaxy Vol II. The guitar/banjo was the only thing he wasn't certain about, but said could relate to the type of song they chose for their wedding next year, which will be an acoustic version of a song. I believe that's why the banjo symbol came up because that and a regular non-electric guitar are used for acoustic performances. This was a first for me in regards to asking someone astrally for their permission to give a reading. That told me he would be okay if I were to tell him about my dream without scaring him away which I am often afraid of.

let's talk, my world has always been of a helper and to be there for everyone else's emotional sounding board. I'm the one that takes the edge off that listens to reason and lead you to a better place. But in doing this I am drained physically and emotionally. My brain is scrambled like a ball of yarn. I find myself enjoying the solitude more than I should. Because the solitude is less chaos. I can unscramble the ball of yarn and work towards my own needs and self-care.
I find that most aren't comfortable being alone and that they have to have others to help them and work through their emotional baggage. Here we talk about triggers,emotional, managing, protecting but what about detaching? The more I read the less I understand. Are we to find ourselves in a cold callous prison meant to protect ourselves, do we detach from our family members that don't understand or have trouble conceiving the idea of an empath. Do you label it and then talk in circles do we really need 1000 words? Some are truly struggling We need the now help, not the 25 steps to protect yourself. We need to know it's real, we need to know solutions, we need answers. How can we put ourselves out there if there's no real concise answers and solutions to our emotional well-being . Are we overwhelmed or just lonely and need another club so that we can you chat with others tortured souls of misfits.

For many who practice meditation and breathing excercises, it is apparent the many benefits of proper breathing.
I came across this recently:
"Harish Johari’s book, Breath, Mind and Consciousness, is another toast to this science of breath control (swar yoga). He quotes from the Yoga Kundalyupanishad to explain how controlling breath helps us control the subconscious inner chatter that governs us, by manipulating our animalistic nature."
I haven't read the book yet, but I agree with the idea of manipulating our animalistic nature. My opinion is that one who successfuly manipulates his own nature has little need to manipulate others. Here by manipulating, we of course do not mean to be cruel or domineering, but by understanding the animalistic nature, much like a good rider understand's the nature and personality of his horse. Once understanding is achieve, bonding occurs, and co-operation is possible. Thus it becomes possible to undertake the long journey. When we understand this perspective of our own nature, we also start to understand the nature of others. Some people are entirely controlled by their animalistic nature, simply meaning that the rider has not yet gained the trust of his ride. Were we to ride alongside them, what would we do? If we understood the nature of their horse, what would we do? If we understood, why the horse is in control and not the rider, what would we show?
Finally, some research has been made into breathing, where possibly one day, technology can be make this available to the masses. Everyday is a step closer to making the esoteric exoteric, to demystify mysticism, and the possible empowerment of everyone.

I was scrolling through Pinterest, as one does, and I came across a picture that said, "Unborn Must be Born. Poor Child Oh well should have thought about that before you had children." And that just rubbed me the wrong way, I guess as I identify as a particularly pro-life individual but I've known enough children from low-income families in my line of work to say no to that. I, personally, very much care about those children. One of my good friends had an accidental baby in her final year of high school, she kept her daughter and I absolutely adore this little girl who will be soon going to preschool.
Now in my final year in high school I was...protesting at an abortion clinic (scroll back up and keep reading) and I was partnered with a younger girl who I was sharing a sign with. We were walking around the block and we started talking, and we found some dandelions and carried them with us. Sam (the girl) and I decided that this protesting at clinics isn't what we wanted, we decided we wanted something more. We talked about started a special outreach program for battered women, pregnant women, and children. It started as something like Planned Parenthood but the idea slowly started to grow in our minds. We wanted a safe house for abused women, women who could get free healthcare for her and her children, and just somewhere that any woman can go to get help.
I've been thinking since I saw that picture how much more that building could be. Expanding on Sam and I's original ideas this is what I've come up with:
- Battered woman's shelter
- Women and children's health center
- Maternal health center
- Onsite mental health center (in case of trauma)
- Referral to trusted health facilities and doctors, for termination or continued health care
I realize that even though I identify as pro life and I'm allowing terminations to exist in a facility of my own design it seems counter intuitive or even backwards but I've had the most interesting experiences that made me change.
My good friend was, in a way, very lucky and very unfortunate. Her daughter was born of an abusive relationship with her boyfriend of the time, he abused her and mistreated her and his own daughter (battered woman's shelter). She had a wonderful mother and father who helped her through her trauma and kept her safe from him even now (mental health center), she did technically pay for her own health care but it was the money she had saved for college (women and children's health center and maternal health center). If she had chosen to terminate her daughter I would have been sad but understood her decision (referral).
While I do advocate for the life of the child I find I must also advocate for the mother as well. I've been doing a lot of reading, and doing a lot of learning. I imagine becoming a mother myself, and I would be very happy as I greatly want to be a mother to any kind of baby, healthy or not and adopted or not. But being that of being a very imaginative nature I turned it to a situation where I wouldn't be happy to be a mother. If I had not wanted children or that I was being forced to carry a baby to term against my will.
I realize I could never force someone else to do that, no matter what I felt about the baby or the mother. It is sad at the lost of a life, especially a new one with so much potential, but the loss of mother and baby possibly through suicide or illness is worse for me.
I would open this clinic myself but I haven't the means or the health professionals who could help me but I would gladly take the name that Sam and I came up with all those years ago: Giggles and Smiles, A Place for Mothers and Babies. I think my area needs a place like that.

This is from my own experience and how I “pushed my ego aside”.
My first step to getting rid of my ego was to realize my ego was not my friend anymore it was a threat to me and the people I love around me. You see when you view someone as your friend it is hard to notice the evil they are doing behind your back when your not looking.
So when I looked at my ego as a threat to me, my happiness and people around me I could monitor it, it could no longer do evil without me knowing. It was not tip toeing in the background anymore I watched it and saw the true evil.
I am gonna explain to you what the ego does with a explanation and a example. The ego is like a cloud that floats above our head all of our focus goes to it. this cloud produces lets just say about 1000 thoughts per day. These are the type of thoughts that automatically judge people when you are walking past them based on there weight, ethnicity…etc. You see the ego like to build itself up it likes to make you feel good and better about yourself but every time it is doing this you are actually losing more control in your life, it is a false illusion. The ego is the reason why sometimes you feel like your in a jail cell in your own mind. BECAUSE YOU ARE!
This is a long process this is not a sprint, you need to be extremely patience and aware, so I am watching my ego and I catch it right before it is about to give me a thought about making fun of someone because of there weight, I got one down now my ego will give me 999 thoughts per day, just using the number as a example. So I keep doing this and one day even if it is for 10 minutes my ego cloud goes away and my focus goes on my body for the first time ever this experience will change you forever, and I feel how the energy flows in my body and feel the chakra’s. Even if this only lasts for 10 minute you begin to realize the universal consciousness. This will motivate you to continue the battle against your ego it is not easy and not for everyone, its all about how bad to you want to better yourself and your life, I made that decision when I was battling a lot of mental disorders and it was either my life was going to end or I was going to take up arms against my ego.
I will use one more example that lead me to some of the explanations above when we have trauma in our childhood and during are teenage/adult years it will try to heal itself by releasing this trauma experience from our body by removing the “trauma energy” the problem is it hits our ego and we can not stop thinking about it so the trauma goes back into our body and never releases, when we put our ego to the side we can realize that trauma energy want to escape and lead it the exit so we no longer hold onto this weight anymore. exit stands for a lot more which would be an entire discussion itself.

Hello fellow Empaths
I feel compelled to put this out here today. I am sitting behind my keyboard gripped with fear, anxiety and every other overwhelming emotion. I have decided that I am not going to hide in the Empath closet any longer! I am going to start being true to myself and to others. I am going to let people know I am an Empath and what that means in my life. Now some people may not know how to take that. That's fine. I have a feeling people I know are going to think I am crazy and that's fine. But I can no longer hide who I am for the sake of others. Because honestly, as an Empath it is making me ill. If I am sick then I am no good to anyone else.
I have known I am Empath now for many years and I practice trying to protect myself. But lately, it's been difficult. There have been alot of personal issues going on in my life and I have had a chance to re-evaluate it. Now I have decide to take my life in a whole new direction. A direction that I know in my heart is going to be the best for me.
To be honest the whole thing terrifies me. I am really fearful of doing this. Stopping and switching rails mid-way through your life is hard.
I can not live in fear any longer! The longer I live in fear the longer it wins. The longer I stay ill. Today, I am standing in the face of fear. I am opening the closet door and stepping outside! Who know's where it is going to take me, but I know it can only get better because worse has already happened!
I wish you all a wonderful day, and please be true to yourself! Let us all stop hiding our Empath selves because we can only make the world a better place!
