I think you can rest assured that no one on this site thinks you are crazy. Because I am positive that 99% of the people in the community have had that seem feeling. I know I have many times. The worst is when you are in the car trying to drive and you get slammed with an overwhelming feeling and you just start bawling.
Meditation is very good for this sort of thing. It can calm you down, make you feel at ease. Often meditation can also give you answers to where this negative energy came from. If you are not sure about meditation yet then at least find your self a shield of protection. It could be a prayer, a mantra, a visualization of a happy place. I Personally use stones and crystals as my protection. But you need to find something that will work for you. And it doesn't have to be big or take up much time. In the beginning of this gift of being an empath, shielding yourself and learning to protect yourself from others is very important.
I hope this has helped in some way.
Have a wonderful day!
Hi Cindy, WE do not think you are crazy lol, and I agree with Ember...we all go through this at one point or another or some of us experience this all of the time. It sounds like you definitely picked up anothers emotions...sometimes, this doesnt have to be someone close by. It can also be someone at a distance. It is hard to distinguish when this happens especially if it is from a distance or from someone you dont even know. As empaths, it is our "job" to filter the negative no matter where it comes from, so instead of trying to focus on where maybe focus on filtering and sending it off...this may help. I know that when it happens to me, and I cant grab a sense of where it came from (and it is not me), I just focus on filtering and releasing it.
