Seeing Faces And Numbers Everywhere


Psychic and Paranormal

@hop-daddy
Mine is more when I close my eyes, it's like a movie of faces....like looking through a yearbook.
The Pareidola thing for me is more animals than faces. I see animals in everything...wood grain, patterns in fabric, etc.

@windwolf
Sorry to hear that you are still in so much pain. I pray that she will contact you and ease your suffering. I know in my heart it is not her doings....she is hurting too. Perhaps that is what is making it extra hard for you since you are probably feeling her pain too. Be good to yourself, you deserve the extra love right now

Talking Weird Stuff


Psychic and Paranormal

This conversation about leprechauns reminds me of something I saw as a child. I was not fortunate enough to actually see them, however, in my yard was a perfectly round growth of mushrooms. From what I understand, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, is it was a faerie circle. It was really neat to see this, it was about a 3 foot round circle.....pretty cool.

Not sure


Empath

The only thing that changed is that the boyfriend got involved. Jealousy can do crazy things to a person. Your closeness to her evidently was making him insecure. The events that happened and the manner in which she let you know about not being her friend I'm sure is under the direction of a controlling boyfriend. Don't take it personally, as she is probably hurting about this as much as you are but is being pressured to take those actions.
Blessings, love and light

Eyes-Judgy


Empath

Indigo Dog:

I have lost a few friends for being too "judgy" or for just blurting out things I intuited. People don't like having thier private thoughts read. It is embarassing and personal and I was a big mouth. Sometimes their thoughts and feelings are so loud I forget and just start talking about it. Not to be a jerk, but because I am genuinely compassionate and can feel how dominant these topics are in them. I am trying to help, but sometimes I just creep them out. I may come off as canny and weird because I just know stuff, but I come from a pure place of loving intent. It must be tough for people to be around empaths when they want to have secret feelings and thoughts.


I can so relate to this, I don't have very good people skills when it comes to socializing so sometimes, like you, things just come out. I don't intend to come off as weird either but it happens. Especially weird when they look in bewilderment as ask how I knew that! I have learned to keep my mouth shut more, but sometimes the issues are so loud it feels like they need to be resolved. I am still working on not talking about stuff unless I am asked for help :/

Eyes-Judgy


Empath

In my experience, there is a difference between judging and knowing. They might come across the same on the surface, however, the higher self sees right away if there is something off with s person....you have to go with this for your own protection. I have had several experiences when going with this knowing has kept me safe. I have also tried to warn people of the feelings I get, only to be ignored. For theses people they have found out on their own. Perhaps they were seeing me as being "judgy" also. Probably still do, but in the end my intuition was correct.

exclusivity in a group & how that affects an empath, insight please?


Empath

@stugglebunny
I understand what you mean about starting to judge as well. Since we are empaths we will also pick up on the collective emotions of others. That picking up of emotions seems to be stronger when you are dealing with more than one with the same emotions (judging). I also can relate to the disliking of my own emotions when I catch myself judging. It's a human tendency really. We just have to make a conscious decision not to entertain such thoughts which can be challenging when around such people. Exactly why I stay my distance and am comfortable doing so. We gotta surround ourselves with positive people when at all possible. If no positive people to be around, I'll just fly solo, lol

Speaking in Tongue


Dreams

Hi @bill-walker,
Interesting topic. I have had this happen on at least two occasions according to my husband. The funny thing about when I do it, I do not remember dreaming, which for me is very unusual. I normally remember my dreams in great detail and often see the messages in such. However, both times that this has happened to me I do not remember dreaming at all on those particular nights. When speaking in tongues, he says it sounds a lot like possibly some sort of Asian language but possibly Latin although not quite, if that makes any sense. He has mentioned wanting to record it next time but it happens with such irregularity that it is hard be ready to do that. It would be very interesting to find out what was said.

Empath

Hi @stugglebunny,
I also numbed my senses with alcohol for years. So much so that it took it's toll on my health. Kudos to you on your sobriety! As for the exclusivity of cliques.....they are exhausting, not sure why. Perhaps the negativity that comes along with singling people out...the judging. Oh how I can feel judging! I was also dealing with this dynamic just last year. Since distancing myself from all of it I feel so much better. I felt so different and left out. At first it really bothered me but I have come to the conclusion that I didn't really have anything in common with them in the first place. I only realized this when I stepped away. Hard part is....the clique is comprised of my own in laws! I still have to see them on occasion but now I just keep my distance....I also don't try to fit in....I am no longer in need of anyone's approval and am quite comfortable marching to my own drum.

Strange Encounter - Hurt for days (I am new to this)


Empath

Welcome to the EC @gardentiger
I can relate to everything that you have posted. Also, the advice/knowledge that @trevor-lewis shared is on point. I have noticed that some of the stronger feelings will last for weeks even, and I do believe that if someone has you on their mind or should I say in their sights the emotions will be harder to shake. However, just being able to acknowledge that the emotions aren't yours is the first step in ridding yourself of them. You might also try soaking in sea salt with the intent of washing away the negative feelings. Spending time in nature also helps with sorting out what is yours and what is not. There are a lot of other things to help deal with the empathness. I would also like to suggest Trevor's book "Thriving as an Empath" which has a lot of great advice....a perfect primer for the newly discovered empath.
I am so glad you are coming into your own truth, which is what I believe we are all supposed to do at this time. Remember your are not alone in this journey.

Staying positive when worried about sick mother?


Empath

Hi @bookworm
Sorry to hear that your mother is going through such a hard time....not only physical but mental. It does take its toll on the entire family as well. For what it's worth, my mother went through the exact thing as your mother. She was repeatedly getting tumors in her lungs which did end up with one of her lungs being removed as well. She lived for several years afterward with only the one lung...so it can be done. I cannot speak for your mother's situation, but with mine, she did slow down. Understandably so since her oxygen intake was diminished. The doctors did give her medicine which would expand the capacity of her remaining lung. She also had to do breathing treatments and eventually wound up with an oxygen tank...but that was years later. I cannot sugar coat this, but she did wind up with more tumors...all cancerous. So they had to remove them from her remaining lung over the years. It did get to the point where they could not take any more, but again years later....like 18, since the initial removal of her left lung.
I also lived quite a distance from my mother while she was going though all of this. It is very scary and stressful. Her, you and your family will get through this. It is hard but it will be ok. Another thing that she's got going for her is the technology now is better than when my mother went through it years ago. From what I understand of it, the surgery isn't as invasive as it used to be when my mother had hers taken so that would be a plus for your mother. I am sending you healing, light and love <3 ....you can do this!

I love those shows as well. But Dead Files can freak me out at times as they investigate some really dark stuff. I am a John Zaffis fan and wish they hadn't cancelled Haunted Collector several years back.


I agree, I wish they hadn't cancelled it either. For a while I thought they were going to cancel The Dead Files but they didn't. She is still having the show filmed but they have really cut back on her air time.

Can't think of any movies at the moment, but tv shows are The Dead Files and Haunted Collector. I know that John Zaffis is not a medium, but felt he deserves honorable mention here....love how he is always trying to help people with their "paranormal problems". That is the same reason I like The Dead Files....Amy is a very talented medium and is always doing her best in helping her clients.
What a fun post....thanks @hop-daddy 😊
After hitting the post button, a movie popped up....Powder is one of my favorites.

Salt works wonders from removing the yuck. My personal favorite is Himalayan pink salt, it is great as a soak but also great on food. Thanks @womanwhowalks, I never thought of saging before exposure. I always just used it as a cleanser to get rid of funk. I also use cedar when I sage too.

Protection in known place of paranormal activity


Psychic and Paranormal

I am going to be going on a tour of an old prison well known for paranormal activity. Other than black tourlamine and being well grounded, is there any other precautions I should take as to not pick up any "hitch hikers"? I do not want to inadvertently take something home with me. Any type of meditative preparation? Or simply asking my guides and angels for protection. Any advice is greatly appreciated. I don't want this to be a bad experience.
Thanks,

Trying to stop the empathy


Empath

I believe that it is because down deep we tend to be people pleasers. I feel the same way when I have to tell someone no and exercise my boundaries. Just last night I had to reinforce my boundaries....I have felt great all day even though I didn't get a good nights sleep due to worrying that I might have been too hard on the person, even though they had it coming. I was kind, understanding and listened to what they had to say but I put and end to the using. Still that feeling bad for not caving to them was there. I just chalk it up to our compassionate nature. You are definitely not alone on this one. We do have to take care of ourselves first....you cannot pour from an empty cup.

Dealing with liars


Empath

Does anyone have trouble with knowing when you are being lied to and not knowing what to do or say about it? It's seems that if you know someone is lying and you call them out on it, they just adamantly deny the fact and that just starts an argument. Or if you just ignore it, the liar assumes they have it over on you so they pile on more bs. I understand that those types should be avoided, but what to do if they live in the same house. Anyone else out there have to deal with this?

The mouth sore incident....sounds like you are a physical empath. I also get the ailments of people that I am close to that are blood related. It has only happened once with someone that I am not related to, thankfully. As my father ages it concerns me, his past major issue had me sick for months last year (I went to the doctor myself, nothing found)..and he lives several states away. Once the doctors figured it out and did surgery on him I was fine. Crazy how things like that happen.

Questioning The Empath-Narcissist Connection


Empath

I am not sure if they know what they do on a conscious level or not, however, the damage done to the person being manipulated is the same. I have been dealing with this with my son (narc) now for over a month....yesterday it came to a head and I took a stand. He has literally drained me and has successfully lowered my energy and vibration in the process. It's been especially hard being around him as an empath since I had been absorbing his inner turmoil (I have mentioned the issues he had but of course, denial) and confusing it as my own. Even though I was recognizing it as not mine, the draining of my energy on a daily basis took its toll. Oh how they know how to push your buttons. He totally thrives on drama and gets a twisted thrill out of causing scenes in public. My step granddaughter's graduation was NOT the place for that. I told him that he is going to have to find another place to live....then the social media BS started. It's crazy...I think this time I have learned my lesson and cut chords for good (I'm sure I will have to continue doing so though, since he is bound to me by blood). No more feeling sorry for him after creating situations to place himself as the victim once more. Yesterday was a clarifying moment of how he plays people against each other to cause turmoil and to make him look like a victim. I overheard some of the things he was saying to his dad (also a narc) on the phone after the confrontation....lie after lie after lie to make me out to sound crazy....even told him I was crazy. All over telling him it wasn't going to work out living here. All apologies for ranting........:/
Since successfully cutting chords last night though, I am feeling like myself and more in control over the situation. I have not liked the person I had become.....I have come to realize this hard lesson that he cannot be fixed so I have to turn him loose no matter what the outcome. I have also determined that I will have to go no contact with him even though he is my son so as to not be reeled in by the pity party again. He is an adult and needs to deal with the karma he creates on his own.

Sense of Smell??


Empath

Smell is definitely my strongest sense. Yeah, occasionally the scent will stay with me for a while. Mine more so comes into play with danger signals....i.e. Smelling rubber before a tire blows out kinda thing or smelling smoke before a fire happens. Human odors are rather off putting to me...I try to avoid them, lol but sometimes that cannot be done. The smell that has the biggest imprint is that of someone dying, a sickly sweet kinda smell. Then there are different nationalities, each with their own distinct smell (not trying to come off as racist here, my apologies). Visitation from spirt often comes with a smell also.....their cologne or with smokers....cigarette smell. Very interesting topic @loconnoro

@alexisw
First of all...welcome to the EC! I hope you have found a place where you can be real
What @sensi-sante mentioned about being a cancer in the family is oh so true! Toxic people will create toxic atmospheres any place they go. Like an energy vampire, they will suck the good energy out of everyone and leave nothing but hurt in their path. Your empathness had picked up on this...hence your dislike for her. It is sad that we can be an early warning system but one that no one seems to heed advice from. Below is a link that will perhaps give you some pointers on how to proceed in this touchy situation
https://www.powerofpositivity.com/9-ways-smart-people-deal-toxic-people/
Additionally, if you don't do it yet, I suggest that you get grounded and centered. Shield yourself as well to prevent her garbage from seeping into you (which sounds like it already has) There are a lot of different techniques to doing this. Check out Elise's Empath Survival Guide for starters

Hermes.V:
@the-importance-of-being-jonny

Gautama The Buddha has been known to say that it is through illusions we encounter enlightenment. Illusions are the source of pain, and it is through pain and illusions the light comes through. There is a very similar idea in Christianity and many other religions.
Pain is the path of the prophets for prophets learn to transmute pain. There is no need to search for pain however, for each 'prophet' has enough pain for entire lifetimes. Prophets are chosen because of their potential to withstand pain, and keep a compassionate heart. Eventually a prophet will transcend pain and start transmuting with light. He will learn to fly with his wings.
Yet perhaps a prophet is more a rose than anything else. A rose, when crushed, spreads its perfume to the ones that crush it. A scent of freedom in a fleeting moment can become an avalanch of desire to liberate lives.
Blessed are the gentle, for they will inherit the earth were words of Wisdom itself.

Karma and Spreading Emotions/ Effecting your Energy


Empath

Yes, there is karma, anyone that cannot see the cause and affect of it, perhaps they are in denial or don't want to recognize it at all. What you describe can also be likened to a ripple on water. Drop something in water...it sends out ripples that will affect anything that ripple reaches, like wise, once that ripple reaches something else, it will in turn send a ripple back out....return it if you will....like karma. This drop that creates a ripple, it will also go out and continue affecting things so far away. It a good example on how everything is connected and how actions, thoughts, words affect others. If everyone would stop and think this deep before doing, saying there would be less negative reaction in this world. The reality though is that deep thinking appears to be a rare trait. Not many want to take the time to "peel back the onion" so to speak. Great topic @loconnoro

Opinions on Medicine and Herbal Remedies


Empath

Hi @loconnoro,
I agree with you on the chemicals. No offense to any in the medical field, but I feel that it's all about keeping you coming back and using more drugs when it comes to traditional doctors (they do get money and perks from pushing certain medications). Since I have gotten more into homeopathic medicine I rarely go to the doctor. I have found what is grown in nature can cure a lot of what ails you. Some of my favorites are garlic, echinacea, and good old cider vinegar. Next time you have heartburn, a shot of cider vinegar mixed in a little water works wonders....I know it sounds counter productive, but it works. Garlic is a good antiseptic and lowers colesterol. Echinacea is great for knocking out colds and boosts your immune system in general. As far as books, "The Herbal Drugstore" and "The Complete Book of Herbs" are good ones. The second one has pictures and shows growing, drying, etc.

Questioning The Empath-Narcissist Connection


Empath

@angel
Your post really resonated with me. You are right about the soul age thing...all of the narcs that I have known have all come across as acting like two year olds. All the way down to the temper tantrums. It is hard to deal with, but apparently this is something that I am to learn at this time in my journey. Since my son has come to live here with me, I have had more ups and downs.....and it's only been three weeks. It is hard because he knows how to make me feel sorry for him. I am starting to see the manipulation that he is trying, still struggling with boundaries since I am a physical empath, it is hard to not take on all of the crap. It really wears me out.

Questioning The Empath-Narcissist Connection


Empath

My son shows narcissistic traits, his father being a narc, and unfortunately it appears that he inherited this trait. He also shows signs of being an empath. I bring the empathness up to him to discuss but never wants to go there. Now since he lives with me I do see the toxicity that the empath/narc dynamic can bring. I do wonder why the two are brought together as well.

Parents/Upbringing?


Empath

@visitor
Growing up in such a toxic household had to be rough. Like @hop-daddy mentioned, you have found a site that you can possibly vent some of your frustration and not harm yourself. I have been in your shoes before....I have to say, not trying to be cliche but this too shall pass. There is so much negativity now days it does make it very hard to function as an empath. Try getting out in nature when you feel you are at your wits end. Lay down in the grass and just breathe....close your eyes and smell the earth, listen to nature happening, this is my go to when I feel so bad. This helps me, hopefully you will get some calm grounding from it too.

Is There An Empath-ADHD Connection?


Empath

I find that if I'm alone, my concentration is good, however, if I am around too many people...especially with "issues" I am a complete space cadet, lol. So I think your on to something there @hop-daddy. I usually have to get away from people and be alone to get my thoughts back in line and not bouncing all over the place. On really intense days I have to take a salt bath...that usually helps me.

Parents/Upbringing?


Empath

My parents weren't religious per se but I did get exposed to the Methodist faith at an early age. My grandmother would baby sit me a lot, so I'd go to church with her. However, I still had a strict upbringing....not allowed to call boys, had to be home before dark, had to be watched by a sitter...well into my teens. This strictness, coupled with being an outcast and bullied at school/abused by friend of the family caused me to rebel to an extreme. Long story short, I left home when I was 15 for good and never really looked back. I did go through trying different religions....Nazarene, Catholic, Wicca, Presbyterian, Buddhism. Wicca did resonate with me the best, but there is the non acceptance. Now I don't identify with any religion, but rather spiritual. I believe a mix of all...now seeing there is truth to all....no one path is better than the other, it all depends on what resonates with the individual.

As far as the empathness, I do believe that my mother and possibly my grandmother had abilities, but nothing was ever said on the subject. My mother did have a spot on intuition...she was right sooo many times. But it was still never really discussed. I imagine she was a physical empath....looking back to our troubled relationship when I was growing up and on the road, she was sick often. Which would correlate to the troubles I had.

Seeing Faces And Numbers Everywhere


Psychic and Paranormal

Hop Daddy:

@cat-whisperer:

Very interesting that you and I both see the flash-card effect of people faces when meditating or sleeping. Your example of a yearbook photo matches up well with how I see people. And then it's interesting that you see animals in random patterns or wood grain, and I see angry gargoyle like creatures. I appreciate what everyone has posted on this subject to help explain it. But I am still trying to interpret the meaning and how I should react when I see things? Is it a warning, is it a sign? Same for you. If you see a snake or wolf that are predators, how do you interpret that? There must be a reason why we see things and when we see things. In my case, and probably yours as well, it's not like these almost look like something. The way I view it, these are very clear creatures faces.



I interpret the wolf as good, my spirt guide presents as either a wolf or an owl. As for the snake, I don't have any correlation other than I was born in the year of the snake when it comes to the Chinese zodiac. The only time I get dire warnings is the feel in my gut...the knowing. If it's really bad, it comes when I sleep. The animal faces seem to be a good omen to me, they let me know I am protected.

I appreciate your input on the heightened senses, I also notice my senses stronger when I am tired or ill.

See, I'm the opposite. It is hard for me to remember a face...but a voice, I never forget. But still I see faces. That's what makes it hard. I see theses random faces and have no idea if I've seen them before or not. I see animal faces in objects like you describe...wood grains, patterns on material, etc. My office bathroom door for instance has a snake and a wolf in the wood grain that no one else seems to notice (I think they think I'm nuts, lol).

Seeing Faces And Numbers Everywhere


Psychic and Paranormal

Hmmmm, that's interesting. Mine always appear as non threatening, almost like the pics you see of people in yearbook photos...or obituary pics (just came to me as I was typing)...some smiling, some just a resting face, but none presenting as evil or for a lack of better words...scary.
The obituary pic thing...wondering now if the people I am seeing are ones that have crossed over. Ongoing observations, discoveries, realizations...what an interesting journey this is.
"What a long strange trip it's been..." lol

@hermes, you always explain everything so beautifully.

@hop-daddy, I know weve had this discussion before on another thread...I see faces too, with my eyes closed. Random and changing like flash cards. I also see faces in things but more of those kind...that I see in ordinary objects are of animals.
