I am new to this forum after finally taking seriously the fact that I am an empath and I need to start handling that. I took a lot of quizzes online and my astrology natal chart was read by a semi-famous astrologer who pointed out my extreme psychic abilities and that I need to be careful of the environments and people I put myself in or around.
For the past 2.5 years, I have been living in a small, strange mountain town in Southern Colorado that is considered a known vortex area.
Previously, I was not sure I believed in such a thing, but after moving here, I now do.
I often have wondered if the intense feelings I get are a result of the geological factors involved - living at the base of very large mountains in vast valley that was considered "the bloodless valley" (a sacred, peaceful area) to the native peoples who were here before. And underneath, there is a large aquifer. Though I have never seen anything and am not a big believer, many claim alien contact and other types of sightings.
Anyway, the biggest problem I have living here is that I feel almost constantly like my functioning is jammed up in strange ways and like it is hard for me to get "worldly" things done here or concentrated on enough. We do have a lot of slackers in this town and I sometimes wonder if I am picking up on the laid back to slack energy here - or, or including, other factors that I cannot see.
It has taken this long to feel like my own energy has overcome whatever energy was in the house I moved into.
I either feel strangely wound up here or dead in the water with my energy. I do have issues with bipolar and chronic fatigue that come and go but this is different. This really effects me in odd ways. It's like feeling a low level of being disoriented. Like I will start cleaning my house and two hours later I can't continue because something is interfering that makes me feel confused, dizzy, and off-balance in a strange way. Maybe it's simply that I've never gotten used to the altitude.
My saving grace, is that I go often to the nearby hot springs. I feel totally grounded and normal when I get in the water and the sauna.
Like I mentioned, I've always had issues with depression, Fibro/CFS and anxiety/hypomania, but it is so amplified here in a strange way. It could be altitude, but I often feel it is something else as well - as if the odd energetics here are putting me on high alert over something or confusing me. I've never felt like this anywhere else.
This is also a place of strange synchronicities for me and odd karma. So I am trying to learn not to be so open to everyone around here as it causes me too much stress in the end.
Just wondering if anyone else who is an empath has ended up in a vortex type area and had strange things amplified in how they feel, experiences, etc. and how did you handle it? Sometimes I think I like it here and other times, I imagine myself moving away and saying to someone, "The place was beautiful, but I felt really off-balance there in a strange way and couldn't get enough done."
