Would we frighten?


Empath

I think that people fear what they don't understand. Both history and fiction has shown that any leap in evolution is met with fear and the desire to wipe out the ones who are different/unique. Is is wrong to protect our secret when they give us no reason to believe they will accept us? Everything out there says they won't. Better to err on the side of caution then the other option.

Empath looking for thoughts and guidance ~


Empath

Being an empath is always going to be challenging, however there are things you can do to recharge your energy and make you stronger so that you feel less overwhelmed and drained all the time. Most of it involves increasing your aura. The stronger your aura the more you can withstand and the less drained you feel, plus the stronger your powers will be. One trick is to stick the bottom of your tongue on the roof of your mouth. The more you can do that the stronger your aura will be. Also, clear quartz crystal increases aura. Wearing it, preferably a raw unpolished untumbled piece, or having it on you will increase your aura. There is also a technique for recharging with crystals when you have a hard day. It helps.

And here are two links for yoga poses to increase aura.

As for telling your family, I recommend not. Once you open that box you can't close it again. People always tend to fear what they don't understand and what we do most people can't always understand and those that do may take advantage of what you do. You may be able to trust one or two people with it but it is always better not to tell than to tell. In general. You have good instincts. Trust them but err on the side of caution. Wait until the time is right with the right people and never trust a negative person with your secret.

Negative People


Empath

You can do your best to stay away from negative people. If someone around you starts talking about something negative tell them you don't want to hear it and that you would appreciate if they wouldn't talk about such things around you. If they don't like that then they don't deserve to be in your life. It is impossible to stay away from negative people all the time but you can block them when you can't shut them down. See the link below. Mostly just try and kick negative people out of your life. They will fight you on it. That is what they do especially if they are family but you have every right not to feel that way and to choose who you spend your time with. Tell people if they can't be positive or at least neutral around you then they can't be around you. Period.

Insanely new to this community


Empath

As an empath it is often very hard to tell your emotions from others, especially when you are not alone. There are several ways you can assess this. First of all, before you go some place with people take a baseline of your emotions. How do you feel today? What are your own emotions? Then when you are with someone or a group of people if you feel something think to yourself these questions...Did I feel this before I came into the room or got close to this person? Is what I am feeling rational? Did my mood change rapidly? If so, why? Leave the room or step as far away from that person as possible. Wait 5 or 10 minutes and ask yourself how you feel again. Do you still feel like you did near that person? If not then they weren't your emotions. I personally have noticed if my mood changes rapidly when I am near someone it is usually not me. I generally assume any emotion I feel when I am around others isn't me and that saves a lot of questions. I know what my general baseline is now and that I am alright so when I yoyo I know it is someone else. It takes a little time but once you get used to it you will do the same but start by using the questions. They help to get you started.

Empath

True. We are given our gifts for a reason but I have always believed that knowing doesn't always mean acting. That fate has it's own plan and even if we try to interfere it will find a way to correct itself if we attempt to change it. If one person's fate is to die example and you see that and warn them, it changes their path temporarily but if it is their destiny to die then they will still meet their end another way. Or sometimes the act of telling them is what puts the wheels in motion what eventually kills them and it ends up being your fault. Anyway. You are right in that we are only given what we can handle. Still some burdens are heavier than others.

I just prefer to be left alone. I don't want to be recognized for what I am or do. I mean I want to connect with others like myself, that is why I am here but as far as everyone else I could care less. I never wanted to be accepted or normal. I just want to be me.

What are my abilities??


Psychic and Paranormal

Empaths can do many things. We can not only sense the emotions of others but we can heal too. To give you an idea of what being an empath may or may not include, here is a list for you of the different kinds of empaths. You may have one or more of the abilities listing including sensing emotions. Every empath like every person is different. It is up to you to discover what you can do.

These are the10 levels of the empath:

Psychometry- the empathic ability to receive energy, information and impressions from objects, photographs or places
Telepathy- the empathic ability to read people's thoughts
Mediumship- the empathic ability to feel the presence and energies of spirits
Physical Healing- the empathic ability to feel other people's physical symptoms in your own body (and often the ability to heal, transform or transmute them)
Emotional Healing- the empathic ability to feel another person's emotions
Animal Communication- the empathic ability to hear, feel and communicate with animals
Nature- the empathic ability to read, feel and communicate with nature and with plants
Geomancy- the empathic ability to read the energy of places and of the land - geomancers can feel the energies of the Earth, such as Ley lines. They can also get headaches, pain or anxiety before earthquakes or other disasters occur anywhere on the planet.
Precognition- the empathic ability to feel when something important is about to happen (often this can be a feeling of inexplicable dread or doom)
Claircognizance or Knowing- the empathic ability to feel what needs to be done in any given circumstance, often accompanied by a feeling of peace and calm, even in the midst of a crisis

Yeah. That pretty much sums it up. "Damned if you do, damned if you don't." Just wanted to get other opinions on it. But does it make me a bad person for saying nothing when really I can do nothing about it and honestly I can never be a 100 percent sure. It is just an instinct.

What Would You Do?


Empath

It is not just the backlash to myself I am worried about. If for example the earthquake were to take place in a large city and I were to call a new station, even without giving away who I am, and they did take me seriously and air it, it would cause a panic. And what if it didn't come when I predicted? What if it came later or not at all? Then I am a committing a terrorist act for inciting the masses. It is a really iffy situation to tell or not to tell. Predicting the future is tricky. You can see one thing and anything you say or do can change that outcome, make it worse or different. And even telling one person you know is like telling everyone (six degrees of separation), so even if I have family in said city I still don't know if I should even tell them. Knowing what may happen.

I don't want to end up a government lab rat and yes something big is coming but nothing i say or do will change that. Mother nature is bigger than me.

I live in VA now but I used to live in Las Vegas and I used to feel a lot more. I used to feel a great deal of the CA quakes. I was a wreck all the time. At least here I am not near a major fault line I only feel the major quakes and not every little quake that happens near like I did there.

What Would You Do?


Empath

I am a Geomancer. One of the things I can do is sense earthquakes, something I have been able to do since I was a little girl. I don't know if anyone else on here can relate to that. If so cool. That is not my question. My question(s) is this. I can sense earthquakes coming. I get anxious and sometimes get migraines. Occasionally I will get a dream about it. I will get an overwhelming sense of dread. A knowing that something is coming but never a when or a where. I know if my powers grow that may change one day. That one day I might be able to tell where and even when. Or that I might be able to figure it out somehow with intuition or some other means. So if you knew when and where something big were to happen, what would you do? Would you tell people knowing A) they probably wouldn't believe you or B) it would cause panic and lives would be lost in the chaos? And what if you were wrong? Then what? Or worse, what if you are right and you are labeled a freak by everyone you know and now you are on the government's radar and who knows what they may do with you. This is why I try not to predict when and where or tell people I know what I can do, even family but I sense something big coming and I am curious what other people would do. Any thoughts?

Wow that is really creepy. Just your story made the hair on my arms stand on end. I have never had that happen to me personally but have friends who have had experiences with demons and ghosts and all sorts of evil creatures. Clearly he was letting you know they were aware of you and showing their power.

Hello I'm a newly discovered empath


Empath

There are many techniques and I will include a very helpful link at the end of this but I also highly recommend getting some black tourmaline. It is the strongest of the protection stones. It creates a strong shield that repels all negative energy. It also feels really good. Like a soothing balm just being near it. Get it raw, untumbled and unpolished. Completely natural. It has more power when it is untouched and fresh from the earth. Also get more than one piece. They sell it by the pound on Amazon. I recommend that. Black tourmaline needs to recharge itself after each use (something I learned myself by using it). Also use it only when you need it, when you plan to be around negative people (again so it can recharge). How I use it is I grab a fresh piece when I go out and put it in my pocket. The next time I need protection I grab a different piece. If you need any more help feel free to message me.

Newbe


Empath

The first step is simple, acceptance. I was like you. Sick for many years, both physically and emotionally but especially emotionally. Then I realized what I am. It just clicked one day and made so much sense. It seemed like overnight I started to feel better. It was like flipping a switch inside. Just knowing and believing was enough to change everything. In a matter of months I went from depressed and suicidal, on four different psych meds including an antipsychotic, to off my meds completely and the happiest I have ever been in my life because I know now that I am not broken like I have always been told. Everything I have always felt had a reason and I understand it now. It is a gift and you can learn to grow and control it. It takes a little time but it isn't hard. Especially with a little help, which I didn't have, but you do. So don't worry. You will get there. Just accept and believe.

Does it ever feel like...


Empath

As an empath this is always going to happen. It cannot be avoided. You will take on the emotions of others and it will hurt you sometimes. However, there are several things you can do to help. First, do your best to stay away from negative people especially when they are in a bad mood. I know this isn't always possible but anytime you can avoid them it will help. Also minimize your exposure to crowds. As your powers grow you will have a harder time with them because there will always be one or more in the group waiting to drain you or throw negative emotions at you, whether on purpose or by accident.

Second, learn to block/shield. This is very important especially if you are living with someone who tends to get explosively angry. There are many techniques and I will include a very helpful link at the end of this but I also highly recommend getting some black tourmaline. It is the strongest of the protection stones. It creates a strong shield that repels all negative energy. It also feels really good. Like a soothing balm just being near it. Get it raw, untumbled and unpolished. Completely natural. It has more power when it is untouched and fresh from the earth. Also get more than one piece. They sell it by the pound on Amazon. I recommend that. Black tourmaline needs to recharge itself after each use (something I learned myself by using it). Also use it only when you need it, when you plan to be around negative people (again so it can recharge). How I use it is I grab a fresh piece when I go out and put it in my pocket. The next time I need protection I grab a different piece.

The third thing you need is to clearing, there is many ways to do this. Meditation, smudging, reiki, crystals, earthing. One method I use is a simple salt scrub that I make. It helps me a lot. Feel free to message me and I will happily give you the recipe.

The last thing is strengthening your aura. This does two things, it not only protects you from negativity by creating a shield because you are stronger but also it grows your powers at the same time. Again there are several methods for doing this and again I am happy to share with anyone who wants to know. Message me if you want the info.

Empath

Only the ignorant are frightened of what they don't understand. That being said, some people are not ready for the truth. Some things are better kept to yourself until the time is right. As an empath you will know who it is safe to share with and who it is not. As for myself, I opt for not sharing 99 percent of the time. Not that I don't long to share. I just don't feel most of the people in my life right now would understand or would one day use it against me.

Vision


Empath

As empaths we are most connected to those we care the most about. If you saw something, whether it was past or future, it was because you care about her. It does mean your powers are growing. It doesn't mean though you are supposed to do anything with the information however. Knowing doesn't always mean interfering. Sometimes that can do more harm than good. What will be will be and past or future you cannot change the outcome.

Empath

I don't speak for everyone here but calling yourself an empath is simply a label. Some want to use it and some don't. Those who have known about their gifts longer tend to choose not to use it. It is a matter of choice. To me, from what you said, it sounds like you are at the very least a sensitive. That can mean all sorts of things, up to and including an empath. You have to look inside yourself and decide what you believe. No one can tell you what you are and what you aren't. You have to be the one who decides that in the end. If you are an empath your heart will show you the way. In the mean time, here are a link that may help you.

One of my favorite all around stones for empaths is purple jade.It is a strong protective stone, and acts as a ward against negative energies. Jade is a stone of the heart. As such it is related to the heart chakra and has a beneficial effect on all heart chakra related issues. So, of course, it can attract and enhance love of all kinds. It is also considered to be good for the physical heart and for emotional balance and stability. Making it one of the best stones for empaths. It is also very calming and soothing. I know this because I have it. I bought a purple jade mala similar to the one in the picturebelow. I took it apart and made stretchy bracelets out of it with the beads for myself. I love wearing whenever I can. If i had to pick one stone that would be the one I would pick.

Greetings


Empath

Just thought I would say hello to the group and a little about myself. I am a fairly new to knowing I am an empath though I have been one my whole life. I have been trying to learn and grow. I would love to meet others like myself. I am a geomancy empath. I sense earthquakes and do a lot of work with crystals and stones. I also like to make my own bath products, including ones that help me as an empath. Feel free to message me for details and I will gladly share recipes for scrubs and such. I hope that everyone has a wonderful day/evening depending where you are.
