not sure if this is an empath thing or not


Empath

I still get ringing in one ear on occasion... this happened regularly during my kundalini awakening.  I now call it "angel radio" (as this could be messages being "downloaded") and simply ask (silently) that the volume be turned down.  I usually have to state it 2-3 times, but within a minute or so the ringing is gone.

I am generally more sensitive to sound and also to light now.  Also to a lot of food additives.  Especially fast food that I used to be able to eat no problem now turns my stomach in knots.

Why you shouldn't shield yourself


Empath

Shielding is extremely exhausting in itself for me.  I still have an unconscious shiield for situations such as the workplace where I'm stuck sitting inside everyone's energy and subtly absorbing it all day every day.  However, there's a couple practices that I've adapted to help clear/avoid peoples "stuff" when someone is actually having an emotional reaction around me.

The first is that I open up a vortex at my solar plexus chakra and intend that anything coming in the front passes straight through me and gets blown straight out the back.  A lot of times, though, the energy seems sticky/heavy so I've added another intersecting vortex at my solar plexus in the center of my body going straight down and out my root chakra and hold the intention for whatever's stuck to pass though and down into the earth. 

The second I adapted from a Ho'oponono process a friend gave me.  What he told me is that everyone is walking around with loose cords (he actually called it a tree) waiting to attach to someone, and you can clear those cords when you enter a room and/or when you talk to someone or whenever you feel it's necessary.  His process was to take scissors and clip everything around your entire aura to keep it clean.  My version is to bring white light in through my crown and down into my heart where it forms a spinning merkaba star.  The spinning star expands from my heart out to fill my aura and the spinning points shred anything that does not belong to me.  This helps at work only a little but is more useful when I'm in one place for a shorter period of time or moving in-and-out of peoples energy.

where do you buy your crystals?


Empath

I agree that metaphysical shops are good if you have them in your area.  You may find yourself drawn to certain crystals and being able to see and hold them first really does make a difference.  That and gem shows are the best ways to window-shop.

There's groups/pages on Facebook that discuss crystals and post images along with descriptions of their properties to help you guide you--or you can ask questions:  Crystal Guidance and Healing Crystals will be the best bet for you, I also follow Crystal Knowledge.

Once I find something I like... if I can't buy it locally (or it's too expensive) I usually buy from ebay.  My favorite vendor for tumble stones is shopciscotraders, all of their listings include descriptions of the crystal properties.

Fermented foods have helped me quite a bit but there's still certain foods or restaurants I can't eat at without my stomach turning knots.

I make kefir (which also greatly reduced my longtime alergy to traditional milk) and kombucha and ferment vegetables, tomatoes and salsa.

Are you competitive?


Empath

I was lead to my empath discovery by first discovering that I'm an indigo adult.

One characteristic of indigo's is the independent thinker (doer?) They prefer competing against themselves, aka personal achievement rather than being part of a winning "team".

Examples of this include the popularity of "extreme" sports. Skateboarding, BMX/biking/motorcross, surfing, skiing, snowboarding, skydiving, rock climbing come immediately to mind. Friends come together to support each other but no one's success depends on the performance of another on a team.

I grew up skateboarding. I'm still a bodyboarder and bodysurfer. I like pushing my own limits in the ocean.

I used to play soccer which I enjoy and we were even champions one season but winning didn't really effect my sense of fulfillment much either way.

I say no more random encounters... because what's happening isn't random!

You guys need to actually hang out and see where it goes. The path has been laid out, YOU just have to be the one to take action and get on that road, wherever it may lead, unattached to a specific outcome but trusting that whatever will be is right--don't be content to just observe what the universe bringing together!

Out of Body Experience


Empath

I feel you 100% on this one.

I had something like this recently when a friend of mine had me kinda trapped and was dumping on my about his problems. I was actually trying to listen and usually I can give him some perspective and/or guidance but I got very spacey and almost drowsey to the point that he actually stopped and asked if I was feeling okay.

I have problems with anything I play music through. My laptop died. So did my home stereo system.

I also had 2 ipods die in the last year... the one I have now (since learning I'm an empath) either goes "dead" and has to be rebooted (have to let it sit for an hour or so sometimes) or it reboots itself. And, my bluetooth speaker crapped out recently as well.

Shielding vs. Filtering


Empath

Anyone here have experience with flower essences? I've been making a yarrow blend but have only been using it (several times daily) for a couple weeks. The effects are supposed to be cumulative. I believe white yarrow is the best for helping strengthen your aura.

Plenty of articles on Google... here's one: http://www.flowersociety.org/drmesich.htm

Also, Bach's rescue remedy is supposed to have immediate effect if you're in crisis mode.

Am I still an Empath?


Empath

I just realized through some of my learning over the past couple weeks that the health kick I put myself on a couple years ago was me unconsciously preparing my body for the vibrational shift that happened about 6 months ago when my sensitivity really got lit up.

I am not as lit up as before, and now I realize I have been unconsciously trying to dampen my sensitivity by eating a lot of junk and even drinking conservative amounts alcohol more often (few times a week--when I initially got lit up I wasn't drinking any alcohol at all.)

Has your diet or health changed?

I think it's possible she could still be a twin flame even if she's negative... she's just obviously not on a vibrational level for the "divine" connection to manifest.

Regardless there is definitely a cord there. My reiki instructor recommended a shamanic reiki book I'm reading right now that has a section on cutting cordsShamanic Reiki: Expanded Ways Of Working (Llyn Roberts, Robert Levy).

Have you tried cutting the cords at both ends?

If you don't have a reiki practictioner I'd be willing to try a distance treatment with you.

Is my energy making crystals crack?


Empath

I haven't had a light surge on me, however...

I've been going through Michael Smith's Empath Toolkit and he mentions the lighting thing and also electronics sensitivity and I realized that over the past 3-4 years my computers, ipods, and powered speaker systems have all died or required repair within 8-12 months of my acquiring them.

I also just bought a beautiful rainbow flourite piece Wednesday night and by noon the next day it had a crack.

New to the Name, but not the feeling


Empath

I feel pretty much everything that you mentioned...

I just wanted to comment on your depression statement. I often wake up feeling depressed and would end up having a crappy day at least once a week... however...

Now when I wake up in a crappy mood I can say stop and say to myself "why do I feel so depressed right now?" "what happened to me to make me feel so bad?"

If I can't find anything in my own experience (100% of the time right now) to justify the bad feelings then I know it's not my depression and I can leave it behind--so to speak--and not have someone else's random depression affecting the quality of my day.

Overwhelmed by Energy of Others


Empath

Can't remember which "empath" book I got this from but it said then you are entering a charged environment to visualize a vortex over your heart chakra (I expand it over my solar plexus as well) and give yourself the intention that other people's energy will pass safely through this "vortex" without touching/effecting you.

Is my energy making crystals crack?


Empath

Anyone else have this experience?

I bought a small amethyst pyramid a couple weeks ago and within a week it develops all kinds of internal cracks. I've tried to (gently) break it but it's still structurally sound. Hasn't been through any temperature fluctuations.

Then I remembered several years ago I bought a rose quartz pendulum which I still have and it did the exact same thing--full of visible cracks but no physical/external damage.

I haven't had this issue with any of the many other crystals I have... maybe it's not what it seems...

For me it's not only names of people I meet, but names of characters in movies I love and have even seen over and over again. I tend to take in movies as a whole experience and not the details and am baffled at how my friends can watch a movie one time and remember all the names and quote lines of dialogue exactly.
