Welcome! :) This is a great place to learn and find support. I've been here about a year now and it's been so beneficial. The two posts before me give great places to start, and I also suggest you look into "shielding". I use it in place of blocking. And I also meditate regularly. I use my meditation time to focus on the positives and opening my heart to them. I've made a conscious decision to feel the good in the world and let the bad "filter" through. And it works! What will work for each person is different, but I'd advise looking into all of it. Also, if I hae a really bad day and feel like I've picked up a bunch of "muck" from others I will take a shower. While in the shower I imagine my own personal energy is a bright white light around me, and the muck I've picked up is like black goop. Then I imagine the water from the shower is bright rainbow light. As the water washes over me I visualize the rainbow light washing the muck away and cleaning my own bright white light. I will stay in there until I feel I am "clean". It might sound silly but it really works for me, and I've found lavender scented soaps and oils help as well. I hope something I've shared helps! Once you are able to reign in your gift and get it under control you will see how truly blessed you are. <3

Hey! I'm new as well. I found out I was an empath around the beginning of last year. But I've just recently started looking up what an empath was probably the end of last year. It became overwhelming for me too. It was a relief for me too. I used to always think that everyone was like me and that everyone else could just handle the situations better than me, with my emotions and all. But seriously, since I've found out more and more of what an empath is, things totally started making sense for me. I feel like the way I feel about people and situations and even upcoming events had a legitimate reason for me. I do spend a lot of time alone or if its with people, just around my close family. I'm not antisocial. I can go up to anyone and talk to them and have a conversation but it is draining. I spend a lot of time in nature usually on walks. Alone time is what recharges me. Recently I've spent more time alone than I normally do and I feel like I've discovered so many things about myself and what it really means to have this gift. As far as the animals go, I believe that animals come into our lives for a specific reason, usually to give us messages. Just like if you believe people come in your life for a reason to teach us something. Every animal, in my beliefs, have different meanings. If they are there, figure out what they are trying to tell you. Of course, you don't have to believe this. Everyone has their own truth they feel good and comfortable with. Hope to get to know you more! And hope this has helped! You're not alone.

Thanks for the tips! These seem like great ways to cleanse yourself. I meditate regularly but I haven't thought of the shower thing. Which I think is ironic because I love the rain. I feel as though every time it rains, the environment around me including my house, my yard, etc, is cleansed. Why not do it in the shower? I do always feel better emotionally when I shower but I think intentions behind it could make it more powerful.

Thanks emmy!

Birds creep me out. Of all the places to land you choose my cars mirror?! Then they just stare. Im sure people think on weird.One thing I hate is when you try your best not to be noticed and people just won't look away. I know empaths have higher frequencies and they're noticed by most, but Im so tired of unwanted attention. Then you can't ignore them completely. Even if you miss every word they say you just feel it.
