Fight or flight response


Empath

Thanks for the replies! Its nice to know that I'm not the only one lol. I do agree that working in the mall, especially out in the open in a kiosk, is super difficult because of all the energies I'm confronted with on the daily. I'm also the assistant manager so I usually end up being the guy who deals with most of the customers, mall management and our area managers. Its a stressful situation to begin with and my not being able to bridge the gap between normal and an extreme stress response makes me afraid that I'll lose it on someone and I also worry that its going to make me sick. Breathing is an good focus point for me because as soon as I get angry I lose track of all that and I will definitely try that visualization technique. I'm really tired of this reaction and at the end of the day its super embarrassing to not be able to maintain composure over a 15yr old kid stealing a handful of gummy worms.

Super Hot Feet and Hands - Help?


Empath

My hands get so hot I touch people and they get scared lol. My body temperature in general is super high but my hands are almost always sweaty but they are definitely always insanely hot. Idk about the feet but at night I do sleep with my feet out from under the blanket lol, I heard once that when we're sleeping the head and feet are where excess energy you absorbed during the day get released throughout the night.

Fight or flight response


Empath

I handle confrontation very poorly and I work in a do it yourself frozen yogurt kiosk in the mall so I'm constantly having to take charge and tell people what's what. I don't know if it because I feel what they feel and in my mind their argument is justified because of that so I feel like I'm wrong or if its me just being grossed out by other people's anger but I really need to figure out how to stay in control. I shake violently and my voice stutters and my pupils blow wide... My fight or flight gets activated instantly and its really over the top when all I'm doing is telling some asshole to not steal toppings. Does anyone experience similar things or have any advice?

something that might help:)


Empath

It was a little tough in the beginning because I had never realized that I was taking from other people to distract from my own emotional turmoil. The first time I used bronzite I got slammed with my depression. Even so its still helped a lot:)

Empath

Hey all! I just thought I'd share something with you that is helping me! A little background, I have a lot of traumas and unresolved emotions that make blocking other people tough. I have a stone called bronzite to help me though! Bronzite might just be the empaths best friend. Bronzite blocks and sends negative energies back to where they originated. It also is called the "stone of courtesy" because it promotes gental politeness and sincerity in you and those around you. It also brings unresolved issues and feelings to the surface and helps you make peace with them and in effect yourself. I highly suggest bronzite to any empath who uses or is interested in using crystals and stones!

what to do when the negativity won't go


Empath

Thank you for the advice, I'm definitely searching for old burdens that still weigh me down and while I believe that some of these are concrete I know there may be other new ones that are hindering me.

what to do when the negativity won't go


Empath

That's not exactly what I mean... There is a darkness inside of me that grows until I can't take it and up until recently I could just let it go and feel it leave my body. Its like the residual poison from the people around me get dumped on to me and I can't do much to stop it. Crystals/meditation/chakra opening none of that has ever helped me stop the absorbtion and it wasn't a huge deal until earlier when I tried to release it and it just wouldn't go this time. It makes me extremely unstable and sick sometimes and I'm worried for the people around me.

Empath

I've been having a hard time letting go of the negative energy I've been absorbing. Its like its fighting to stay with me and I feel it inside of me almost like its alive. I keep looking at my stomach expecting to see it there.. I don't really know what to do, all of my normal meditations and rituals aren't helping like the used to.

anchors


Empath

Does anyone else think its necessary to have some sort of anchor? A lot of stories that I've read talk about people who easily lose control needing something that can bring them back to reality. Right now I think my anchor is my sadness. Its not exactly healthy but when I lose it, my sadness is the only thing that's pronounced enough for me to focus on and come back down.

The bottom three charkras, from what I understand, are always tricky for empaths. Which one is worse depends on which one you take information through the most I'd assume. Like me my root chakra is strong but my sacral chakra is sick and wimpy lol and my solar plexus could probably be (a lot) better.

Facebook is too negative for me. I don't have a lot of wonderful memories of the people from highschool and for the most part I just don't care that the girl that was in my algebra class six years ago is preggers lmao. Also it's wayyy too easy to get caught up in other people's lives with Facebook and I don't have energy to spare for that.

any other empaths in their twenties?


Empath

Omg I feel you on the party thing with the dudes and all that. I'm a bisexual and everyone I meet in situations like that just assumes it means I'll have sex with anyone... I honestly can't socialize nearly as much as I'd like to because being an empath isn't something that people consider or even know about mostly. I get so sensitive to other people that if I cant get a few days away from everything I'll just start breaking down periodically lol.

Empath

Hi all:) Sandie, I'm just talking about things like dealing with ignorant people, not only hearing what people say but feeling the emotion they feel while saying it, dealing with all the crazy people in our age group and idk if anyone 'parties' but I think its kinda tough to deal with that.. Idk just living life as a young empath:)

Empath

Hey, I'm Jamie and I'm 20. Just looking for other empaths around my age so we can exchange stories and tips for day to day life. I feel like things are pretty chaotic for an empath in their 20's. I also have a lot of 'empaths issues' that no one can relate to haha.

My Awakening Experience


Empath

Hey! Welcome, I'm new as well:) Animals also flock around me and I've always thought it was because they knew people like us can communicate with them better. I suggest looking up the techniques, grounding and centering. Those are your two greatest tools in getting control. Also you can google 'meditations for empaths' and I'm sure you'll find something that will help. I'm glad to hear that you've awakened and are so open to everything, that makes it so much easier, haha. I will say though there are some things that empaths can do that seem ridiculous or scary:P Thanks for adding me as your friend!

I know what you mean! Have you been around an especially positive or loving person/group a lot lately? When this happens to me I've noticed it's when I can get enough "positive vibes" from another to keep me energized. Are you dreaming still? When I get like this my dreams can be really vivd and weird, lucid almost. I was wondering if anything like that was happening to you.

Mood disorders vs. Impaired empath


Empath

I've known that I could sense things about people for a loooong time. I used it to my advantage all through school and was wildly popular with students and staff. I have been aware, though, that while all these great things were happening I was also starting to really struggle with depression, anxiety and very, very sever mood swings. I was officially diagnosed with clinical depression, mixed bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder and I was noted as a possible schizo-affective. I went through a few drug therapies and they absolutely did not work. The only thing that seems to level me out is being away from what was upsetting me for x amount of time. Then more recently I met someone who knew more about all of this than I do and she told me that I was just a very strong, unbound sensitive and I was just absorbing others' energies to an extreme. Currently I'm thinking that perhaps the mood swings and anxiety/paranoia are most likely empath influenced. I do think the depression is real, I think it may have started as an empath thing but I was so young at the time that I couldn't filter out and it was coming from my mom after the death of her husband so both the emotion and the bond it was moving through were unusually strong. I don't know, all I do know is that I'm sad and lonely all the time but when I'm around people I become unstable, irritable and manic. I literally live in isolation because I can't stand to be around people, I start acting strange then they start getting weirded out by me and I pick up on that weird feeling they're giving and I then get defensive and upset. I have a lot of information to sort through and figure what applies to me haha, I'd appreciate some help:) sorry for the long post.

Creating a "Male Empaths" group (and Female Empaths)?


Empath

I think this is a cool idea and I would be into an all male group. I like getting advice and perspective from everyone but some issues I'd want to be able to ask in an environment with other guys like me. I would like to clarify that this is not me being sexist it's just like some questions you go to your dad and others you go to your mom.
