I only realized I am an empath this past April. I've been working with trying to get my aura out to proper size and notice the moods of people without having them become 'my' emotions.
A few weeks ago for about a week, as I was driving home from work I felt that my hands were dirty, almost like I have been digging in dirt. I'd get home, wash my hands and things were fine.
This past Monday, my manager came in. I could already tell she was pissed. I got some attitude thrown at me but I remained calm. Lunch came and I went to sit in my car, just to get out of the stuffy, oppressive room. When we got back to work, I actually felt as if I needed a shower because of how dirty I felt. That's when it dawned on me that hey, I must be buffering out this negative energy from my aura. So, I again washed my hands and felt clean again.
Has anyone experienced this 'dirt?' I thought it was an odd way for me to experience negativity, and I really don't want it to go the OCD route! Washing my hands seems to be working, and I know I'm not sending the negative back out there, I'm sending it back to the earth to be renewed.
