I've only realised I was an empath since I joined this forum. And I got some funny comments. I'm a classic empath, it seems.
Now I'm working most on knowing when energy is mine versus someone else's. As I look around and learn I often come the notion of stealing energy from others.
I struggle a bit with this idea based on experience. If I can sense someone's energy there is obviously some kind of 'transfer' going on. Mostly I don't want to sense others' energy as the anxious/fearful/controlling energies are most intrusive to me. Experience seems to indicate there is just a general flow of energy, more from some people than others, and I'd go as far as to say that "my energy" is really more energy of the universe focused around me and flowing through in patterns (chakras and fields).
With more subtle energy and energy flow, I try to focus inward and outward to sense the energy from other people (and objects, especially crystals and orgonite).
So I'm really interested in what people think about stealing energy and if you think this really happens, what distinguishes sensing/feeling energy from stealing energy?
Also, what's going on with psychic attack? This seems kind of the opposite thing to me, where another human being imposes certain energy and/or thoughts and/or images etc. on another person.
Thanks in advance.
