Practical Empathy


By Indigo Dog, 2017-07-14

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.

Hello fellow Empaths and Sensitives


By Indigo Dog, 2017-07-04
Hello fellow Empaths and Sensitives

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.

I had an Amazing Astral Experience


By The Importance of Being Jonny, 2017-06-03

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.

A path less traveled


By mypath, 2017-05-28
A path less traveled

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 need to 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.

"Working the Chakras For Empaths"


By Trevor Lewis, 2017-03-22

"Working the Chakras For Empaths"

Why this exercise?

Many “New Age” teachers talk about, and teach from the perspective of, opening the chakras (if you are not familiar with the chakras, they are energy centers that are part of our energetic body; more details in a moment). For highly sensitive people, and particularly empaths this opening up is not necessary. If anything we are already far too open.  Empaths tend to live life with their metaphorical hands outstretched saying “gimme, gimme” to all the stray emotions that are flying by them. The challenge is to be able to pull back and not take on so much.

This exercise is about contracting the chakras so as to be more discerning about boundaries and take on less of other people’s energies. Although this exercise talks about “closing” the chakras, STAYING closed is not the purpose of the exercise. A door is not a door if it is open all the time (it’s a hole in the wall), nor is it a door if in closed all the time (it’s part of the wall). A door is meant to be opened and closed.  Similarly, it is not appropriate to walk around with our physical hands open all the time nor closed in a fist all the time. We want to be able to open and close our hands at will, at appropriate times.

We go into a gym to exercise our muscles by flexing them against weights.  This exercise is about learning to flex our chakras so that we can better expand and contract them as appropriate to our surroundings. We will go through the exercise contracting each chakra and then, at the end, allow them to expand out again to an appropriate level.

Introduction to the Chakras

The chakras are energy centers that have been part of the Indian mystical tradition for thousands of years. They are spinning wheels located at seven centers in the body as shown in the table below:

#

Color

location

Attributes of the chakra

1

 Red

Base of the spine

Grounding, security, survival

2

Orange

Pelvis below the navel

Creativity, pleasure, money

3

Yellow

Belly just below the solar plexus

Personal power, willpower, confidence.

 

4

Green

Heart

Bonding with others, caring , compassion, love of self and others

5

Blue

Throat

Communication self-expression.

6

Indigo

(midnight blue)

3rd eye (between the eyebrows)

Seeing, both inner and out worlds. Intuition. Wisdom. Consciousness

7

Violet / Gold / White

Crown of head

Connection to the universe, The Divine, Being

 

When the first chakra is too open, we get caught up in the material world and forget that we are spiritual beings having a human experience.

When the second chakra is too open, we focus too much on base pleasures; sex, money and having a good time.

When the third chakra is too open, we are too open to other people’s power and will to the detriment of who we are ourselves.

When the fourth chakra is too open, we may be overly caring of others, again to our own detriment.

When the fifth chakra is too open, we may be over communicating and sharing too much of ourselves.

When the sixth chakra is too open, we may become spaced out with the knowledge of higher worlds while losing our grounding in the physical world in which we live.

When the seventh chakra is too open, we may drift off into the ether and forget that we are supposed to be having a human experience in a physical body.

Visualization

Most top athletes in every sport use visualization techniques. They’re an important part of sports training. Mental coaches would say they’re the key to peak performance in almost every discipline in life. If these techniques works for top performers, it only makes sense to apply them to ourselves in our everyday lives.

With all mental exercises, it’s not about HOLDING a thought, it’s about FOCUSING a thought. One analogy is to treat the mind like an active child when you want them to sit still. You are going to tell them to stay where they are, but sooner or later they will get distracted and start wandering off. You bring them back, they sit still for a while, and then the process starts all over again. When your mental attention wanders off from the subject of focus, gently bring it back. Keep repeating the process. Just bring your attention back to your subject. Do not worry about having thoughts; they are natural. Do not try. Let it be . . . easy!

The most important part about any mental exercise is that it be done with intent.

Variations of this exercise

With each chakra we are going to “tighten up” the chakra and concentrate its energies. There are (at least) three styles of visualization that you can use for this:

  1. Visualize a shutting door and locking it with a golden key.
  2. Visualize a lotus flower contracting from full bloom back into a tight bud.
  3. Visualize a ball, or a doughnut, contracting into a small tight sphere

 

Decide which form feels best for you and work with that one form through the full exercise.

The Chakra Exercise

Begin sitting comfortably where you can be undisturbed for ten minutes (this is a relatively quick exercise). Take a few deep breaths to settle down into your body. Connect into the ground by imagining you are growing roots from your legs, through the soles of your feet, deep down into the center of the earth.

  1. Start with the first chakra at the base of the spine. This is colored red. Using whatever imagery you have chosen, a red door, a red lotus flower or a red sphere now is the time to close and lock the door with a golden key, fold the lotus flower back into a tight bud or contract the sphere down into a tight ball.
  2. Move up to the second chakra in the pelvis below the naval. This is colored orange. Close the door, tighten the lotus bud, or constrict the sphere.
  3. When you are complete with the second chakra, check on your first chakra again and ensure that red chakra is still closed tight. Check on the second, orange chakra again and then move up to the third chakra in the belly just below the solar plexus. This color is yellow. Close and lock the door with a golden key, fold the lotus flow back into a tight bud or contract the sphere down into a tight ball.
  4. When you are complete with the third chakra, check back to the first, second and third chakra in turn and ensure they are closed tight. Now move up to the fourth chakra in your heart center. This color is green.  Close and lock the door with a golden key, fold the lotus flow back into a tight bud or contract the sphere down into a tight ball.
  5. Repeat the process from the base of the spine back up to the heart before moving up to the fifth chakra at the throat. This color is blue. Close and lock the door with a golden key, fold the lotus flow back into a tight bud or contract the sphere down into a tight ball.
  6. Repeat the process from the base of the spine back up to the throat before moving up to the sixth chakra at the third eye between the eyebrows. This color is indigo, deep midnight blue. Close and lock the door with a golden key, fold the lotus flow back into a tight bud or contract the sphere down into a tight ball.
  7. Repeat the process from the base of the spine back up to the third eye before moving up to the seventh chakra at the crown of your head. This color is violet, gold, or maybe just a pure white light. How does it show up for you? Don’t close this one all the way down. Tighten it up but leave the connection open up to the heavens. Stay connected to The Universe, to your God Source.

 

Relax. Take a few deep breaths. Scan through all seven charkas one more time with the intention of opening them up to the appropriate amount to go back into the outside world.  Reconnect into the ground by imagining you are growing roots from your legs, through the soles of your feet, deep down into the center of the earth.

Using this exercise

You can repeat this exercise even a few times a day.  Once you are familiar with it you can run it from start to finish in only a minute or less.  You can repeat this anytime you feel like you are taking on too much energy from the world around you, whether it be from one person or many.

When you are in a safe, healing space you can use this exercise to open up; either when you are working on somebody or when another healer is working on you. Just remember to contract again at the end of the healing session.

Trying Tarot


By Mythical Spark, 2017-02-20

Back in December, 2015, I was in a bookstore, one of the major book retailers in the UK, and I was just looking around for nothing in particular and I had some books that I was going to purchase and I was just doing a brief last look at some odds and ends before going to the checkout to purchase the books I had and I was at a rotary of things like games and stuff and I come across a deck of tarot cards.

I was never the one for divination and I'm not much of a believer in them or anything like that but the general idea interests me for some reason, so I thought I'd pick up a deck while there, mostly just for fun.  I had used them once or twice on the first couple of days of getting them and gave it no real thought.

Then, this afternoon, I picked them up again, just for a bit of fun I guess.  I thought perhaps I could channel some of my own 'energy' or 'essence' or whatever into them as I clasped them in both hands so as they be 'in tune' with me as I used them for information.

The instructions were to draw 4 cards, A; B; C and D.  A being what's at hand, B being past influences, C being 'ponder this' and D being what to do.

Anyway, for A I drew XV: The Devil; for B I drew IV of Swords; for C I drew III of Pentacles and for D I drew XVII the Star.

I consulted the book for information on the cards and what they represent/mean and it seemed to make a far amount of sense of what was at hand, or what I had asked in my mind before shuffling and dealing out the cards but I don't want to read too much into it as I understand and know that these things require interpretation and I know that there is probably just as many possible interpretations as there are people.

But then again, I don't wish to seem close minded and I like to be open minded to possibilities that there might be and I guess that there are people who might be more au fait about such things who might be able to actually shed light on such things.

I do not wish to disclose what was at hand or what I had inquired mentally before dealing out the cards as I feel it's a bit of a personal matter, not that it's anything embarrassing or anything against anyone, it's just that I'd rather keep it personal.

Sprirt Dream 02/14/17


By Angel, 2017-02-14
Sprirt Dream 02/14/17

I just woke up after my husband and I took a much needed nap. I often don't like sleeping in the afternoons because I seem to have the strangest dreams, but when Spirit comes, it's always in dreams I have at night, this was the first time it has come during an afternoon nap. I'm writing this down to keep a record of it since there appears to have an important message attached to it. Most of the dream I don't remember, as usual, just to the point where Spirit enters is what is written.  For me, Spirit often comes as people in the dream, but I can usually recognize them through looking at their eyes, they are usually more solid and is conscience. I this dream I missed it until the end.

My dream started with my two younger kids (now teenagers) when they were young, daughter was about 5 and my son about 4. (They are 15 months apart). We were being chased the creepy "The Ring" girl. She was chasing us around this hotel,trying to kill us. She also had a daughter with her. So the kids and I started running. My son fell behind and they almost caught him but I snatched him up just in time. We lost them for a short time and I stopped and talked directly to my son. I can't remember what he said, he just kept saying something wrong and I kept correcting him. I was just happy we were safe. They found us again and we started running. We were blocked in an area where we were trapped. My daughter ran up to the wall and shapeshifted into a maniquin, then my son sat up against the wall with his hands wrapped around his knee and also shapeshifter. But they weren't full maniquin, they just looked like it. Right around the corner I saw a door and ran into the room. I tried getting the kids to follow me, but my son smiled and said "no, he's got this". The creepy lady and her daughter were walking around the kids like they were confused and trying to find the kids. I knew it was only a matter of time before they found them, so I decided to distract her. I opened while standing behind it. When they were walking through the doorway, I slammed the door on her a few times, she held something in her hand and cut me with it. I finally hit them enough times to take them down long enough for me to run past them and grab the kids. As we were runnning, the dream switched to the creepy lady giving my blood to some scientist guy who wanted to use my blood to track us down. Then it switched back to the kids and I. We kept running and had my son in hand and my daughter was right behind us, then she disappeared. I started freaking out but I knew they didn't have her, but we had to find her before they did. We walked by an open doorway and I saw her run across something out of the corner of my eye. I went in and grabbed her...fast. I asked why separated from us and she said she didn't, we left her. I told her we didn't leave her, I looked back and she was gone and she looked at me in the eye and said "But Mommy, that's how they get you, when you let things get in the way." And then I woke up.

I don't know who the Spirit is, I just know this is a message, an important one. I know who "they" are, but the rest I will need to figure out, soon.

Another message from my grandpa?


By IntuitiveDreamer, 2017-02-12

The last time I dreamt about him was months ago and he is back. 

In this dream it was like a big event was going to happend, he was all happy and excited and was dressed in a grey suit, I am not sure what it was but my grandmother was not there. I can't remember if he mentioned her but it was related to both of them. like some sort of wedding or a special event. And this was going to take place in their own House.  He had prepared a few tables with decoration right outside of their front door (?) 

Note: *She still lives at their Home.

Can anyone tell me what this means? 

what is he trying to say?

Somewhere Beneath The Surface


By Mythical Spark, 2017-02-11

Sometimes I get the feeling of something deeper inside me that my conscious mind isn't aware of and I am only able to sense fragments and bits and pieces to whatever lies deeper down in the darker recesses of my mind.

Occasionally a flash of an image or a sound or a word or a whole train of thought pops out of somewhere in my deeper subconscious that my conscious mind just will not or cannot latch onto for more than a fleeting moment and without any context or rhyme or reason.

I often ponder what gift, if that is the right word, has been repressed by my own conscious mind and, if so, what reason?  Maybe it was out of fear or lack of comprehension, maybe I just wanted to seem 'normal' in the eyes of others and I learned how to repress and hide these things deep down inside me and forgot all about them until I learned about empaths.

Sometimes I wonder what I might have become if I hadn't fallen into the trap of 'normality' and tried to lead a 'normal' life and embraced my natural or true self.

But I also wonder if I'm just crazy and if I'm just repressing some form of madness.  I wonder if I am harbouring some empathic abilities or if I'm just getting some fuzz from my own subconscious mind.
