I'm new to this and still a little wary and skeptical of it, but I am trying to get more comfortable with the idea of being an empath. I'm curious... What's your story? How did you realize you might be an empath?For me, I think I knew from childhood that something was different, but everyone else called me softhearted, so I accepted that and didn't question it again until I was about 15 or so, when I somehow came across The Book of Storms, and the more I researched empaths, the more I had that "eureka" sense, and I felt like everything I discovered struck truth within me. Ten years later, I have more questions and problems than answers and solutions, and I realize I need to seek others for support. :)So tell me, what's your story?

I too have been an Empath all my life. The older I got the more I felt and knew not everyone could feel and see what I do. I only told a few early in life about what I experienced and was laughed at and teased. So I drew myself in, keeping it to myself. As a teen , the feeling and calling kept getting stronger but I didn't know what to do with my knowledge of the "secret". Then one day as a young teen I was visiting my sister and she had a funny looking bag. I reached for it and she stopped me and said to never touch it. It was her bag of spells. I knew she must feel what I feel and use it to practice that kind of stuff. I tried to talk to her about it but she wouldn't discuss it. I was pulled toward a different direction than her. I was pulled toward the light. After a lot of research and coming across someone who's energy I could not feel, I wondered why so I researched it more. Then, I ended up here. My sister is a Christain now and still don't like to talk about it. I do not claim any certain religion but do know my creator and his band of angels. Of course a lot of stories but too much to post.Release your fears and accept your gift (s). You are blessed

That's interesting, I was teased as well, but I was usually teased for defending the underdog or something along those lines.Do you consider God your creator? I'm an atheist, but to me it feels like there's an energy or rhythm that everything in the world is attuned to, keeping things in harmony, and it flows through everything except for people, and those who are empathic are reconnecting to it, catching whispers of it. In a metaphorical sense, anyway. Thank you for sharing your story with me :)

Yes, the divine spirit. I just have a problem with mans version of him . You know, my spirituality makes it hard to feel how an Atheist sees the world. No offense at all , just can find better words. I know some days I feel nothing, like it's all an idea made up in my head. Then I wonder is this how an Atheist feels. I have known a few Atheist but they really didn't talk about it. Can I ask how does an Atheist feel. Not being ruled by any religion or set of rules by a religion This is an innocent question. No bias meant.

That's a beautiful descriptiontnorm. To me that isGod, or at least the best representation of what God is as opposed to any religious act or doctrine.

I believe religion by and large is how a collective people chooses to recognize, interact with or doing what they think that the shared "energy or rhythm" wants them to do.

I also think what creates the turmoil is that humans are so terribly flawed in our reasoning instead of going with the flow of energy that would naturally promote goodwill toward one another.

Very nice sentiment you expressed.

I was raised Christian, and I loved having a sense of community and believing that there was something higher than me that loved me unconditionally and kept my moral compass pointed in the right direction. Now that I'm an atheist I feel more fulfilled, though. I don't feel like I need to be loved by something beyond my understanding, and this has surprisingly allowed more room to love and appreciate myself. I also feel 100% accountable for all of my actions, rather than it being part of a plan, and that alone compels me to better myself on a daily basis. I want to do good in this world, just like anyone else, I just don't think that desire stems from the love and teachings of a Creator. I don't harbor any bitterness to believers, though. We all have our own paths to walk. I think a lot of people see atheists as bitter and doom-filled or cold, amoral sinners, but that's not the case with me. Knowing this is the only life I have makes me enjoy it more, and pursuing and spreading harmony and happiness gives my life meaning and purpose. I can't speak for everyone, but that's my take on it. :)

I was raised Christian also. It's amazing how our beliefs are different but we both love wholeheartedly . The secret is keeping the mind open and calm. (My opinion). Thank you thorm for sharing your story. I feel no doom or bitterness from you , you feel quiet pleasant. I know how people thinks quite well. Some believe if your not following God then you have to following the devil. Lol. So far from the truth. It's good to met your acquaintance. :)
