The level of self empowerment of my mind, body and soul right now Is beyond scaling.
I don't mean that in a boastful sense nor to look down on others but it's given me strength to discipline my physicality, by negating the time wasted in self doubt and second guessing, begging and sulking to acquire the knowledge and understanding my soul seeks.
The greatest gift from the one whose loins I was created from gave me the greatest gift that I still reap, to stand on my own two feet, depend on others but not where I become completely dependent on them.
I was always afraid to express my true beliefs, never stood up for myself, always allowed myself to be a doormat, instead of changing what I couldn't change of others I changed myself only to learn I simply cannot please everyone, and the only person I was hurting more than any other was my own potential. I must stop giving myself in such ways.
I always halted from sharing some mutual understandings and beliefs, likes and dislikes for fear someone may presume I am copying them, or competing. Today I decided to. Continue to do what I love, that I shouldn't have to give it up for what someone else may think of it. Quite simply put I'm done giving a shi*.
What inspired me today of how sensitive I am to peoples energies, is jealousy is something iv despised with a passion because of what it can do if one let it to breed. It's rife! And it's the ugliest trait in my opinion. I'm beginning to pick it up wherever I go. And along the process those who are aware who might have some traces of it, though not through malice (in some particular personal cases) we can focus our energy to block it out, to prevent the one we may have it for gathering any sense of it.
Why? It's taught me people can have all the riches in the world but when u harbour such a filthy trait it only feeds the fire to want more of what it simply cannot have, and thus causing wilfully or unwilful harm towards the one it sparks for.
Jealousy I learnt blocks the spiritual eye of the believer, and I honestly believe now that the more I block out and negate negative characteristic s hidden within the heart the more I unlock the power of my spiritual eye, everything begins to seem more clearer, self doubt only weakened it's true power and strength of how deep I can actually look into anothers soul, I can do so if I desire just by focusing my energy on them, but I choose not to. I aspire to inspire others and grow to theyre full poyentia, to believe in the power of theyre own mind body and soul.
From a young age I have been very gifted in many talents that I loves and enjoyed and the more I indulged in the better I became, the only thing that stopped me fully achieving this was my own self doubt and a dire need for recognition and affection that was substantially missing throughout my youth.
And till this day I truly believe that writing my own articles on my learning experiences will benefit people like myaled and the difficulties I have had to endure. I no longer feel the need to shy away from my works for fear of them being refuted by someone lacking in the logic and rational for something theyre mind cannot process because they have not reached a reality that they cannot simply comprehend.
I sincerely request if anyone come across my works, criticise them and share your thoughts and opinions, I don't take offence in the slightest it only drives my passions to commit to continue to better, to compile everything solid enough, very little biased and broad enough to continue to benefit many people one day and reshape or modify how some factors are viewed and the lack of support and hopefully implement a holistic approach in the field I once was so passionate about, for this moment in time I knowingly wish to remain some aspects anonymous in what my references to are, I need to ensure my own state of being is in the utmost state of wellness before I can expose my target audiences.
And I'm utterly grateful for this site, as I look to learn so much more from uniquely gifted people like yourselves and hopefully open a gateway for those who have been marginalised and stigmatised through no fault of theyre own.
Much love and peace to you all.

When I see visions via dreams or thoughts, sometimes they can be symbolic for types of moods,thoughts, even abstract paintings and mandalas if anyone's ever used them (relaxation/art therapy).
Last year I used mandalas alot, before I was aware of my empathic ability. Colours that I used had to be very specific, once it was complete I could see the emotions and wants and desires within people's souls, sometimes knowing theyre personal information that they most likely would not disclose except with close partners. The completed pictures would give me a full understanding of theyre internal states.
Each colour and it's shade and the intensity/transparency represented mental/physical/emotional states of theyre being.
I would notice if consciously certain topics were discussed how later on a subconscious they would feel some internal uplifting, a sense of belonging, reassurance, etc. It usually worked on people that weren't as aware of my purpose of initiating some conversations which were perfectly normal and nothing untoward about them. I love reading body language it's always been 2nd nature to me, I don't know where it came from but its always been a persistent part of my internal characteristic.
I would love to (not in an obvious manner) observe peoples own mandalas and what colours they used, with lots of other things the nature of the coloured, how much time they spent, what they were thinking and how it was affecting them in what they did without acknowledging how it was impacting them..
I worked with a lady who suffered from depression quite severely (this was many years before my empath days).. I'm very reserved in person, I observe and learn my surroundings and people, ensure I'm comfortable then begin to adapt and analyse everything I'm in contact with. I guess that's why many people notice I'm shy and quiet and can take a long time for me to come out of my shell around them. So this lady had been in treatment for many years, various types of psychological therapies and medications had been used to no significant affect. At this stage when she had begun electro convulsive therapy, which although I understand it was a last resort to help this lady, it was some what still unethical to me and it intrigued me to see what outcome it would bear if any at all..
For the time I spent with her, I noticed how people would interact with her, what methods they would utilise and I saw what they were doing wrong or perhaps what they hadn't tried. Her care of course was there for her, staff from juniors to seniors would try of what they could from they what they were taught as part of trainings.
So I had tried theyre methods to no avail, so one one day i thought I'm going to try something different, I will make it about her to initiate a conversation, anyone would be lucky to get more than a couple of sentences out of her (she suffered from suicidal and tormenting thoughts, often which were very destressing to her.
I remember sitting next to her on the bench and it might sound selfish, but I initiated a conversation around things she once used to enjoy and made it about myself and not her. She'd been listening for about a minute or two and she turned to look at me, a reaction I never saw from her, ever, her face lit up, and instead of me asking her questions she began to ask me instead, as she continued I began to smile in awe and we probably spoke for a few minutes. I remember telling my mentor about it and she was amazed, my time was short and I still think of her till this day.. sometimes I underestimate my own abilities and think should I have shared this with others to embark on something similar? There's so many of these minuscule moments I've had that I always think perhaps I could have done more and made an actual difference.
This lady always wore a deep red jumper and black trousers, looking back at that moment now it feels as though the red represented a love she had in her heart for perhaps her own children, but distressing thoughts would taunt her with torture of other children that she's go out looking for saying they need help.. black signified how deep her depression was.
Of course that's not to say people.dont like to co ordinate what they wear and what they like, but to me personally it begs the question where does our love and desire for certain colours originate from?
IV personally never had a favourite colour, but there was a period where I became very fond of deep purple/violet,.lilac too, I look back at it now and see that was a time where I was internally somewhat distressed, and I seeked internal calm and peace, now it also means a sense of assertiveness not through being mean but staying grounded for what I believe is right whether anyone agree or not..
Peace and love to all..

Most woman can roll their eyes, laugh it off and accept it as men being men.
Unfortunately, I feel the situation as it's happening then feel the guilt and feel his nervous worry about what he's done. This makes my suspicion go to overload and I ask too many questions.
I'm thinking that relationships can't happen for me.
Does anyone else have this problem?

Ho'oponopono – The Hawaiian Art of Forgiveness
- Breakthrough old regrets.
- Breakthrough emotional patterns triggered by the people and circumstances in your life that you sometimes wish weren’t.
- Breakthrough using this deceptively simple and easy process for creating new opportunities.
- Create the space for new strategies, new possibilities and divine inspiration.
Introduction and Background – About Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len
Sat Jul 22, 2006: HO'OPONOPONO By Joe Vitale
“Two years ago, I heard about a therapist in Hawaii who cured a complete ward of criminally insane patients–without ever seeing any of them. The psychologist would study an inmate's chart and then look within himself to see how he created that person's illness. As he improved himself, the patient improved.
“When I first heard this story, I thought it was an urban legend. How could anyone heal anyone else by healing himself? How could even the best self-improvement master cure the criminally insane? It didn't make any sense. It wasn't logical, so I dismissed the story.
“However, I heard it again a year later. I heard that the therapist had used a Hawaiian healing process called ho'oponopono. I had never heard of it, yet I couldn't let it leave my mind. If the story was at all true, I had to know more. I had always understood “total responsibility” to mean that I am responsible for what I think and do. Beyond that, it's out of my hands. I think that most people think of total responsibility that ay. We're responsible for what we do, not what anyone else does–but that's wrong.
“The Hawaiian therapist who healed those mentally ill people would teach me an advanced new perspective about total responsibility. His name is Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len. We probably spent an hour talking on our first phone call. I asked him to tell me the complete story of his work as a therapist. He explained that he worked at Hawaii State Hospital for four years. That ward where they kept the criminally insane was dangerous.
Psychologists quit on a monthly basis. The staff called in sick a lot or simply quit. People would walk through that ward with their backs against the wall, afraid of being attacked by patients. It was not a pleasant place to live, work, or visit.
“Dr. Len told me that he never saw patients. He agreed to have an office and to review their files. While he looked at those files, he would work on himself. As he worked on himself, patients began to heal.
“'After a few months, patients that had to be shackled were being allowed to walk freely,' he told me. 'Others who had to be heavily medicated were getting off their medications. And those who had no chance of ever being released were being freed.' I was in awe. 'Not only that,' he went on, 'but the staff began to enjoy coming to work. Absenteeism and turnover disappeared. We ended up with more staff than we needed because patients were being released, and all the staff was showing up to work. Today, that ward is closed.'
“This is where I had to ask the million dollar question: 'What were you doing within yourself that caused those people to change?'
“'I was simply healing the part of me that created them,' he said. I didn't understand. Dr. Len explained that total responsibility for your life means that everything in your life - simply because it is in your life –is your responsibility. In a literal sense the entire world is your creation.
“Whew. This is tough to swallow. Being responsible for what I say or do is one thing. Being responsible for what everyone in my life says or does is quite another. Yet, the truth is this: if you take complete responsibility for your life, then everything you see, hear, taste, touch, or in any way experience is your responsibility because it is in your life. This means that terrorist activity, the president, the economy or anything you experience and don't like–is up for you to heal. They don't exist, in a manner of speaking, except as projections from inside you. The problem isn't with them, it's with you, and to change them, you have to change you.
“I know this is tough to grasp, let alone accept or actually live. Blame is far easier than total responsibility, but as I spoke with Dr. Len, I began to realize that healing for him and in ho'oponopono means loving yourself.
“If you want to improve your life, you have to heal your life. If you want to cure anyone, even a mentally ill criminal you do it by healing you.
“I asked Dr. Len how he went about healing himself. What was he doing, exactly, when he looked at those patients' files?
“'I just kept saying, 'I'm sorry' and 'I love you' over and over again,' he explained.
“Turns out that loving yourself is the greatest way to improve yourself, and as you improve yourself, you improve your world.
“Let me give you a quick example of how this works: one day, someone sent me an email that upset me. In the past I would have handled it by working on my emotional hot buttons or by trying to reason with the person who sent the nasty message.
“This time, I decided to try Dr. Len's method. I kept silently saying, 'I'm sorry' and 'I love you,' I didn't say it to anyone in particular. I was simply evoking the spirit of love to heal within me what was creating the outer circumstance.
“Within an hour I got an e-mail from the same person. He apologized for his previous message. Keep in mind that I didn't take any outward action to get that apology. I didn't even write him back. Yet, by saying 'I love you,' I somehow healed within me what was creating him.
“I later attended a ho'oponopono workshop run by Dr. Len. He's now 70 years old, considered a grandfatherly shaman, and is somewhat reclusive.”
We are responsible for manifesting everything in our lives. That’s the bad news. The good news is that because we are responsible for manifesting everything in our lives it’s easy to create change. I am not responsible for the pain and suffering in your life until you share it with me. At that moment I have manifested it in my life and I am responsible. (Here’s an easy path – dump all your pain and suffering on the nearest enlightened master and let go. It’s now all their responsibility and, as an enlightened master, they can deal with it! Only two tricky steps, the first is finding the enlightened master and the second is truly, 100% letting go.).
And, it’s not necessary to accept this idea of being responsible for ho'oponopono to work.
Trevor’s wording of ho'oponopono:
I’m sorry (for having created whatever it is that is disturbing me, you, the world)
Please forgive me (for having created it)
Thank you (for forgiving me)
I love you (I love you, me, God for being in my world… love is good!)
There are various alternative forms including the shortest form which is simply “I love you”. Find what works for you.
What has it done for me?
Created a whole new space for creativity. Created a space where I am about to increase my income tenfold. Improved my relationships with my family. Before I started using ho'oponopono I couldn’t have envisaged being able to cope my mother emigrating from England to live near me. Particularly, it has improved my own self-acceptance.
Dr. Len talks about ho'oponopono as a cleansing technique. It cleans the system. For me it has become an anchor … feel some discomfort, some agitation … immediately practice ho'oponopono … feel better.
Ho'oponopono and others:
Forgive the people that do me wrong
Forgive the people that are out to get me.
Forgive the people that are complete morons.
Forgive the people that are just taking up space on my planet (which is, as my creation, the center of my universe. How dare they take up my space in my universe).
It makes driving down the road a whole new meditative experience.
Using ho'oponopono avoids being sucked into the other person’s energy. It avoids being “hooked” by their “stuff”. It avoids the emotional trap.
Exercise: What do you want to forgive other people for?
What/who gets you hooked? Salesmen? Politicians? Telemarketers? Road rage?
You may have difficulty wanting to forgive somebody for something big. That’s fine! Let it be. Pick something small. You don’t have to walk into a gym and pick up the biggest weights in the room. Start with something small. We are building up a whole new set of muscles that you are not used to using.
You may have difficulty asking for forgiveness from other people. Are you worthy of being forgiven? Can you ask forgiveness from God, if not from others?
Politicians are wonderful practice material for ho'oponopono. By practicing on our political leaders you get to clear yourself, the politicians and through you and them, you are cleansing the whole country.
Eyes open or closed? My take on this is that if the thought comes up with your eyes open, practice ho'oponopono with your eyes open – it only takes three seconds! If you are lying in bed with your eyes closed and the irritation comes in, let it go by practicing ho'oponopono with your eyes closed.
And if, at this stage, you still have doubts about this mumbo jumbo and me and my strange accent … please practice ho'oponopono on me! You can say to yourself … “I’m sorry for bringing this weirdo into my day. Please forgive me. Thank You. I love You.”
Who am I saying this to? The other person, myself, God? The answer is “Yes!”
Ho'oponopono and self
Forgiving oneself for having created the situation. Letting go of past regrets. For me this was the biggie! I tend to live in head and get caught up in my thoughts so that once I start beating myself up it used to be an closed loop of beating myself up, beating myself up for beating myself and “what was again that I was beating myself up for?”. Ho'oponopono works great as a pattern interrupt.
Exercise: Want do you want to forgive yourself for?
What have you done in the past that you wish you hadn’t? What health challenges do you have that you wish you didn’t?
If the concept of forgiving yourself doesn’t work for you, try disassociating. In a disassociated state, seeing yourself in the situation as another person, you can forgive that younger version of yourself as a separate person from you in the same way as you forgive others.
Ho'oponopono and God:
And if the concept of God doesn’t work for you fill in the blank. I’m taking about The Divine, a Higher Power, The Universe, Your Higher Self etc. Whatever works for you.
One way of thinking about ho'oponopono and God is that, because we are not separate from God, there is nothing to forgive. The original sin maybe the sin of thinking of ourselves as something separate from God. Our experiences of life in this world around us is all an illusion. No more than we need to forgive anything that happens in a dream, all this is an illusion.
And much as I personally have an intellectual concept of “everything is an illusion”, I’m still human. I have to admit that on a day-to-day basis I don’t have a strong connection with “It’s all an illusion”. When I stub my toe it still hurts!
For those of us that still see ourselves as being separate from God, it may be important to ask for forgiveness from God. “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank You. I love You.”
Sharing ho'oponopono - Keeping Rapport
Ho'oponopono is first and foremost a personal technique. When someone is annoying you, the only place to go to is, internally, “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank You. I love You.” Cleanse yourself first for creating them in your life before even thinking about correcting them.
That said, once you start noticing the changes for yourself, you will want to share the technique with your friends and family (and isn’t your family a perfect practice ground for ho'oponopono). Keep rapport!
My own mother dismissed ho'oponopono on the grounds of “been there, done that”. She was very much into blessings and thought nothing of standing in public places with her hand on somebody’s head to bless them. However, in conversation she could be very negative about people and events round her. To keep rapport and still introduce her to ho'oponopono, I started to interrupt her with “Bless them” every time she talked negatively about someone (after, of course, saying “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank You. I love You.” in my own head first). For her “Bless them” worked much better.
Practice, practice, practice.
Have fun with this. Use it. On some days, I am probably using ho'oponopono many times a day – especially on those occasions when I catch myself in the middle of an internal mental argument with myself about someone in my life trying to prove to myself why I’m right and they’re wrong. Use it as a mantra. Share your life with it. Share your home with it. In fact while you’re at it, take a shower with it, drive your car with it, watch the news with it. Use it all the time.
Your life will be different!

You are not Too sensitive. The reason you feel intensly over something is because you have the power and ability to do something about it. Your internal guidance is triggering a discomfort. I'm not talking about being upset or angry and freaking out, but when you just 'know' something isn't right with your spirit.
Those who say to you "You are just Too sensitive," don't have the power to see the solution and make inspired action to change.
1. Calm your mind.
2. Ask your guides/ angels/ divine energy for wisdom over the situation.
3. Sit with the answer in a state of gratitude, appreciation and blessing.
4. Then, and only then, take action.

What we never take fully appreciate in life is the stillness and perfection of the present moment. We always hear that “you should live in the moment”. But how exactly do we but this into practice and what are the benefits of living in the moment? To put this into practice we need to understand the value that living in the moment can give us. To live in the moment, you need to be fully immersed in this exact moment. Not what you did 10 minutes ago, about the Frappuccino you are going to be getting at Starbucks shortly. Or even thinking about you how much a dick your boss is. You see because when you think about the past you are giving you power to the past and not to the present moment. It is the same idea when giving your power to the future or giving your power to negative thoughts. Living in the moment is not an easy task because it takes 100% concentration. Your value of the present moment needs to be greater than anything else going on in your life. Or else your mind will wander.
So why should we live in the present moment. First of all its brings your awareness to the beauty of the world and how special each moment in life is. There is no point in time that is going to be the same as that exact moment. Each moment is unique. There is no better time to create your future then in the moment, you can consciously choose that you want to change your life for the better. When you are giving your power to negative thoughts, guilt from the past, your fears, or worries about the future you are manifesting those same feelings into your future. Also, you do not have enough power to create the future that you have always wanted because you are constantly giving this “power” away. Many of us have cycles in life of the same instance occurring over and over again and we never understand why, by living in the moment it will bring awareness and self-reflection to what is going on in our lives and can help us understand how we are to grow and learn from the past to break out of a repetitive cycle. So have a good look at nature today and look for the beauty in every moment

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.
By Indigo Dog, 2017-07-04
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.
