Attachment/Infatuation or picking up on energies?

Hey guys. I've recently delved into the world of the empath and I'm trying to figure out whether I am one or just an intovert.

I'm not always introverted, but I easily feel bombarded by other people's stuff when I interact with them. At times I also feel like I am thinking other people's thoughts; Or I'll have a thought or opinion about something I wouldn't normally care about, but I feel it really strongly, which happens after I interact with people or have been thinking about them. I also get this odd feeling sometimes of 'turning' into someone; i will be working or doing something like walking down the street or sitting down or even talking to people and I feel like I am becoming another person (a person that I know or I've seen on t.v. etc) - I physically like them. Like my body has morphed. i feel like I take on their characteristics and attitude/unique energy. It doesn't last long, but it is a bit of a trip.

Anyway, more specifically to what i wanted to discuss: I regularly go to see someone for an injury I sustained. Been seeing them for a while, and only recently I've started feeling the sort of anticipation you feel when you're infatuated with someone and you get kind nervous/excited to see them and all that.

I'm extatically married and there are no problems there, so I can't pinpoint some sort of lack I might be trying to fill. So it's been bugging me as to 'why'. It isn't the first time something like this has happened. Before I met my husband these sorts of things got me into a bit of trouble. I would say that what has changed is I've recently (last 6 months of so), started opening myself up to people again, for the last 4 ish years, I went through a phase where I shut people off because I didn't want take their stuff on or get myself into 'trouble' with feeling this infatuation/attachment to people (it's happened with girls as well, and I'm not that way inclined).

I've got to thinking that if empaths feel other people's stuff then perhaps I am just picking up on his energy (whether that is towards me, or something/something else I wouldn't know). I have to admit that it is a fun energy to feel, but I'm a bit confused by it and have this desire to categorise what I am feeling so I can move forward and handle it in the right way for me.

Anyone have any ideas or similar experiences on this??

I'd say you are most certainly an Empath and that you are picking us his energy. His feelings could be towards you or he may be recently infatuated with someone else. I'm thinking the fact you are picking up on it even before you go to see him indicates you should consciously'cut the cord' you can find guided meditations on YouTube on cutting cords if this isn't something you've done before!Cutting cords regularly helps you to discern what's yours and not more easily.BlessingsGem x

Thanks Gem :)

It's nice to have this validated. I'm curious to discuss why one would 'cut the cord'. I understand that you would want to be as free from others energy as possible, but do you know if there's info about using the energy you get from others in a positive way?

Cutting cords just makes it easier to distinguish our own emotions. It is a gift but if we are consistently feeling another's emotions it can become an energetic drain on you.Some people find consciously acknowledging the feeling is not theirs and sending it back with 'love and light' or whatever positive feelings you would want to attach is enough.I think because you are regularly feeling this mans emotions it's possible there is a stronger energetic link that may be worth cutting. Its a bit different to walking through the street and picking up random emotions or group consciousness.I had to cut cords with my father in law because I was picking up his anger, frustration (he's very very self involved) but on the other hand im happy enough to have the energetic attachments feeling my children's emotions. I've kept the cord with my husband but that can be hard sometimes because he has confidence issues. Cutting cords doesn't mean not feeling or caring its just a way to avoid energetic drain on your own resources.. Something, as empaths that can spiral out of control if we let it.:) x

Ahh I understand it now. I have a clearer perspective on it and i've just realised that I actually do become my husband's not-so-flattering energy from time to time as well. It is amazing to realise that these things can creep up on you, seemingly out of nowhere.

I really appreciate your input and help with all of this. I'm looking forward to learning how to use this gift in better ways for myself and others x
