hi there! I'm new, at least in terms of aweness lol, to all of this empath stuff. One of the things I find difficult is that it seems you always have to be on guard so people don't attach/drain/dump their issues on you.

i just had an experience where i was feeling some pain/palpitations for about a week or so on and off. realized it wasn't mine this morning, it was someone else's baggage/current issues. an accidental attachment it appears (i cut the cord, and had help to check this out/make sure it was cleared and figured out what happened). however, this is a passing acquaintance. normally i just pick up emotional stuff, but the root of this person's problem seems to be stemming from emotions, and that is probably how i picked the physical symptoms.

i'm hoping that with practice shielding/grounding etc become second nature, and faster/stronger. please please tell me this is true lol!!!! i know that i need to do this, but sometimes it feels like such a hassle, tho i'm realizing it's not an option. it's just got to be a daily or even multiple times a day routine.

thanks! :)

Gee, someone respond!

For 99.9% of online empaths on such forums as this, yes, it does get better.

For me, not so much. I pick up physical pain, sometimes intense and sharp, from randoms. I pick up palpitations at a distance from people I am in some degree of contact with, but not what I would call close friends. So, acquaintances. It is always interesting when the timing of the onset of pain and/or palpitations is validated. This has increased for me in recent years. I have had a protection practice for many years, ground and clear daily, etc, and have trialled at length every suggestion I can find with modest degrees of success. Nothing, for me, blocks the physical pickups.

Maybe you will be like the other vast majority who are helped by simple tips, such as in the Empath Survival Program, etc etc etc. It can take a bit of time and practice, for most, to achieve a level of comfort and relief, so I have heard/read repeatedly.

Most online empaths seem to be mostly affected emotionally, only. (Maybe that is why you've had so few responses?) Sorry I can't be more helpful. Keep looking. Avoid drama queens! Good luck.

Hi Lavender&rose, thanks for replying! Picking up from randoms, its hard to tell right away what is going on... so far i can only tell that I've done so when doing grounding/clearing. Can you tell earlier? Agree with avoiding the drama queens, lol! I'm done with those types, it's not good and so stressful lol. :)

Hi Karen, glad to know that I'm not the only one who thinks that clearing things is a huge pain in the butt!!! Haha! I have allergies so don't smudge often. I used Palo Santo now once in a while if I know I really need to do a good big clearing. The recent connection I mentioned above, I realize it wasn't on purpose. Once I detached her however, she came back and tried to reach into my light again. So had to be firm and NO. Lol.

thanks guys :)

Yeah, with time and practice, and paying attention, things finetune. I can now tell instantly or very shortly (minutes) after the pickup occurs. For a long time I was unsure of myself and thought everything was mine, because ostensibly it could/might have been. That is where meditation and journalling come in, so you are clearer in your self about what is yours and what is not yours, etc. I've found those two things helpful.

I think the main thing is to recognize what's not yours and get that stuff out of you! It's a pain, and sometimes I feel I haven't the energy to do yet another clearing when overloaded with yet another pickup. Other people's stuff is exhausting! Seriously, though, it is better to learn to move it along and out, as it is not good for the nervous or immune system to be processing all that foreign energy as if it's your own.

I like baths, so do a lot of clearing baths with epsom salts, bicarb, and seasalt; and sleep often helps remove the physical pickups of pain and symptoms, etc, overnight (but sometimes I also wake up in the night with weird ones, argh!) It's a learning journey. Keeping a journal of sorts can help you sort some of it out, I think.

Hey! I have bad knees too. Will take your tip and focus on clearing them, also. Poor knees!
