Emotional testing


Empath

Hello,

I completely understand your situation as I have been experiencing this problem myself. As Empaths though, this is a normal thing. We do tend to struggle with distinguishing between what emotions belong to us and what emotions belong to others. This is simply because we are so in touch with other people and their feelings that we tend to neglect our own needs and desires. Many of us unintentionally focus the majority of our energy upon others, causing us to then feel confused as to what we are feeling. When we have the ability to literally feel what others are feeling, this can really confuse us and lead to a combination of emotions such as distress, anger and sadness. The best thing to do to determine whether you are feeling an outside emotion or your own emotion, is to first take a few deep breaths. By focussing on your breathing, you are already beginning to focus in your energy to yourself and your inner feelings. Be aware of each breath you take and as you do this, ask yourself, (in your mind/out loud) what I am feeling right now? Imagine you are the only one in the room at the time and you have nothing else to focus on but yourself. It is just you and only you. Hopefully after re-focussing your energy into your own body, it should be easier for you to then tap into your inner feelings and work out exactly what emotion you are experiencing. Best wishes always.

Empath looking for thoughts and guidance ~


Empath

Hi everyone,I am completely new to this community, and so I guess I will just begin by saying that I am so glad to have found a space in which myself and others can simply share our feelings and ask for advice.In terms of my discovery as a person, I will say that from a young age, I have always felt as though I was slightly different, slightly special in a way that I could never understand myself or even begin to explain to others. I was apparently a very observant child who was always aware of everything and everyone. As I grew older, I became more aware of my self and my abilities as an individual.With every day that passes by at school and the many other experiences in which I've dealt with in life that have opened my mind to the abilities I have, I have finally discovered that I am an Empath. I can feel what others are feeling and immediately sense emotions and the general mood within a room. I am so aware of the energies around me and I literally feel as though I know exactly what needs to be done to fix a situation. If I knew how, I feel as though I could turn the negative energy of others into positive energy.I have such a strong desire to find peace within the world and I feel that I was given my life for an important purpose, to help and to heal others. I have always been attracted to spiritual things and people and I have a very caring and loving nature. I do though however find it very challenging being an Empath. Often I will feel overwhelmed with the emotions of others and as though I need long amounts of time to rest and regain my energy. I am a very busy person and this year especially is one of the busiest years for me. If anyone could provide me with any help or thoughts on how to manage being an Empath and how I should go about it, that would be greatly appreciated. I haven't opened up to my family about myself yet as I don't know how they'll react or if they'll look at me differently. Should I tell them?Thanks,Spiritul_light
