this is just .............amazing. I love it. I could not possibly come up with anything that comes close to this.

Thank you so much for sharing that. I'd post the old Kinks song Victoria here, but alas You Tube seems to have removed the embedding option.

But I love this. Thank you for posting it Lucid. I haven't been able to get to all the groups lately, but this is certainly one of my faves.

I posted this in Sandy's garden thread last year. I had been working on a deck and feeling like my father was near. He was a wonderful carpenter and he taught me some things and I just felt he would be proud. So when I took pics to show the girls in our Nature group I was not surprised to see this. -- But I have some really great photos I need to find in storage. I wish I knew where they were because storage is packed since I moved and never looked back. When I get busy over there, I'll keep my eyes open for them and post them here.

I was waiting to get word on family I have in Sanford, NC today. With the news being centered in Stanford and the numbers climbing, I was sick to my stomach just waiting for that phone call.

Thank God, my folks are ok. But many lost so much. We need to send healing rays to these damaged communities.

Let Love Reign down on them.

Blessed Be.

"..but if you should seek only loves peace and pleasure, then it is better to pass out of love's threshold into the seasonless world, where you will laugh but not all your laughter and weep but not all of your tears."

I remember reading those words so many years ago and the impact they brought to my life. My mother use to tell me to *turn off* my sensitivities and seek only my own pleasure but I knew that was only *half living*. To embrace love and life you have to embrace the whole shaBang!

And now I look back on my life and I see that I do feel like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. and sometimes I do know the pain of too much love (if that's even possible).

All you have to do is embrace your shadow self and all of your fears and walk into the Ocean of Love that's out there. You will not drown.

Kahlil Gibran on Love

When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
as the north wind lays waste the garden.

(Edit)


All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart.

But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,
Into the
seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.

(Edit)

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and find your needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

The Calm After The Empathic Storm


Empath

Thank you, Tammie aka Rev. Wonder (I just like writing full title very lol)

I would love to learn how to bypass the storm, but it seems that is how my gift works. Sometimes I think I am the storm. An emotional typhoon of every emotion and these external entities leech out the ones they need to express their needs. Emotions are a language and do tell a story.

I saw my daughter being pulled away by dark forces because that clearly identified the angst of a mother for her child and a feeling of total helplessness. -- You are a mother try to imagine that feeling ....now multiply that feeling by a million. -- Those high def dreams are always my clue that I need to pay attention.

Sorting it all out has always been the mission. Sometimes, when my own emotions get involved it can get discombogulated...but somehow I always get there. It's like others have Ah-Hah moments...I have DUH! moments. When it all becomes clear is when I realize how obvious it was in the first place.

Well, at least I'm getting better at it. I credit much of what I learned here for that. But there are still times when it side blinds me.

Thanks for your response.

Oh, last thought....you wrote: perhaps the calm is just you returning back to normal. I'm pretty sure my friend is laughing her ass off right now if she heard that. Believe me, there is no normal -- I've always been a storm.

But I do love those precious *calm times*. Maybe I can work on making them my *normal*.

Again, thanks for good thoughts. Much to reflect on.

The Calm After The Empathic Storm


Empath

Angel,

Thank you for your kind words. I was definitely thinking about you last night too, because I'm pretty sure you wrote me a few months ago (one or two) to say you felt a friend of mine wanted me to check on her kids.

I tried but they didn't answer, and I became complacent because when I asked people who live near them they assured me they were ok. But then I realized they are bobble heads like their mother. Always with the head going up and down saying to everyone how everything is ok ok ok...EVERYTHING is ok.

By the time I saw them I just told them to stop the bobble head stuff and get real that's when they told me everything they had been going through and I realized this started a few months ago.

The thing is, and I know you will understand this, is when it happens there are times when I am going through an emotional state and I convince myself I got it *all confused*. -- That won't happen anymore because I am going to be sitting in the middle of their life reminding them everyday that they had the coolest mom in the world and they need to live if they want to honor her...not die for her.

Anyway, I was going to write you last night, Angel (that's why you were thinking of me) but I fell asleep as these kind of episodes always leave me exhausted. I just tanked. But I wanted to tell you that.

If you don't respond to this post (my response to you) I'll know you didn't see it and I'll PM it to ya). But I most certainly was thinking about you last night as well.

The only thing about the dreams that doesn't make sense yet is why I saw (in High Definition) the trunk of the car fly open??? -- Perhaps when one gate opens other influences can slip through and that belongs to something else. But I just couldn't figure out how that fit in. If you get anything on that please do share.

Anyway, take care, my friend. Your story sounds very much like mine as far as the sense of urgency and knowing.

It is this language of emotion that makes us empaths is it not ? -- Blessed Freeekin' Be!

Empath

WoW! This whole thing just got a little bit MORE intense, Michelle.

When that Carole King song kept playing through my head, I kept wondering why she didn't play You Light Up My Life. It was a personal joke between us and that would have made her presence even more clear to me. So I decided the song must be meant for someone else, and I was just the messenger.

But when I went to YouTube to get the link for NOW AND FOREVER -- YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE was in the column right next to it.

It blew my mind.I'm serious! It really shocked me! I literally Laughed out Loud. Of all the videos on YouTube it's just crazy that You Light Up My Life was right there next to Now and Forever.

Maybe that's her way of saying thank you to me. All I know is right now I'm smiling. But I have a feeling I'll be doing a little more crying before it's all over. LOL. -- This is such a strange gift.

My friend told me I should journal the experience, so this is my way of doing that. I wanted to share with my friends too. so this is me sharing.

You should journal your experience as well.

There really is sooooooooooo much more that went on, but it would be impossible to write it all down. Suffice to say I'm so glad she felt she could come to me....and she did LIGHT UP MY LIFE lol.

Take care, Michelle. -- And think about writing your experiences down too. My friend is right it helps you gain a fuller understanding of it all.

The Calm After The Empathic Storm


Empath

I am just entering the *sudden calm* stage of my most recent empathic experience. It actually started a week or two ago. First there were dreams that included

The Tarot Death Card

A car trunk flying open

Ravens lots of ravens

Images of my daughter being pulled away by dark shadows

Carole King's song NOW AND FOREVER

Strange electric tingles around my solar plexus (this is what made me finally realize it was an *empathic episode*. Someone here at EC had mentioned a while ago that they noticed this same feeling when they were experiencing their gift. That's when I recognized the same happens to me. Whoa! Let me tell you it is so great to have a true tell tale sign.

Also, included in the *symptoms* of my latest episode was

obsessive *tangential* thought streams all of them chock full of emotions that left me crying and worrying about the children in my life (well they're all young adults now,but they will always be my *children* . My precious ones. -- and not just my daughters, I was thinking about all the children I watched grow up, especially the children of a deceased friend of mine. She had been like a sister to me. Passed away about two years ago. Suddenly I was obsessed about seeing her kids. I even got in my car to go see them but my car would not start. She had taken over my head -- -- bickering at me to hurry (like she always did -- bicker bicker bicker) and me bickering back to her. There was such a sudden sense of urgency to see them.

And then the song began non stop-- Carole King's Now and Forever. It just kept playing in my head over and over with so much emotion I couldn't stop myself from crying. While I waited for my husband to come with jumper cables to start my car I got a phone call that a friend's husband died. A very important figure in the extended family that helps look after my deceased friends children. (Suddenly it all made sense. This was the reason for the Dreams of Death and the urgency about the children. The song. It all made sense.

Suffice to say, the minute I got that phone call EVERYTHING made sense and I knew I wasn't going crazy. She was really here. (even after a lifetime of episodes there are always those fleeting moments when we wonder if we've snapped a tether and just gone nuts). Funny thing, this particular friend always accepted I had psychic experiences without question. She was very accepting right off the bat. One of the few people who I could feel comfortable talking to about it. In fact she would always ask me to read her Tarot cards (even though she always ended up *telling me* what they meant, LOL. -- It makes so much sense now that she would send me that image of the Tarot card in my dream. A warning of what was to come.

It took less than fifteen minutes after reuniting with her kids to understand her urgency about them too. I mean they are strong and they will survive but they are in a very difficult position right now. Very difficult. Financially, emotionally and right now grieving yet another loss. I know when they see me it brings a touch of their mother to them and I just loved holding them in my arms like I didn't want to let go. I told them they should come move to my apartment complex and they seemed very excited about that prospect.I will call them tomorrow and we will set a date to look.

There is still a lot that we need to discuss, but I know that the *empathic call to service* has been answered, because there is a very distinct *calm* inside of me now. Sometimes I'll hear a faint echo of *the song*, but I feel it's just her screwing with my head, as if she knows it was starting to drive me crazy and she's now enjoying herself. A beautiful song indeed but please... not all day and night........(I told her she should just sing "I'm Henry the Eight I am" and make it an official ghost haunting. There's a point where it has to stop. And for the most part it has

Yes, the song has ceased and the urgency has passed. Every now and then I feel the old familiar chuckle of my dear friend and her mother who I also adored. I feel a state of relief has replaced the urgency. She knows I may be slow -- very slow -- but I'm dependable. And she knows I love those kids.

She also knows she can get me to do anything...as always.

It's amazing how complacent we can get about this *gift*. But at the same time certain things hold true through time (well at least for me). All of the *symptoms* seem to clear up almost *instantly* once the message is received and understood. No more anxiety, crying, dreams, angst . Just a state of utter exhaustion. But the more I understand about the gift the better I am at dealing with it. There were times when the aftermath would wipe me out for a week or two and i could barely get out of bed. Now I'm tired but it's not like it use to be (thank you EC) I applied much of what I learned from here during this episode. So Much gratitude to all of you who shared your own experiences. It definitely DOES make a difference.

After two weeks of pure emotional havoc there is this heavenly CALM inside of me. No more buzzing around the solar plexus. There is peace in the heaven's tonight. -- Well in *her* heaven...at least for tonight.

xoxoxoxoxox Blessed Be xoxooxoxoxoxox

FaceBook Depression -- Social Media fall out.


Empath

I tend to think that sometimes people. Myself included may suffer from text fatigue at times. We may see a message via email notification while checking on the run and then forget to respond when they return later in the day. Since they already opened it, it will go to old mail and let's face it, most of us simply do not have the time to respond to every email. You know how it is sometimes it's feast or famine when it comes to private messages and email. The point is, that's exactly what gets misunderstood. People take things personally that are not meant personally, but they are too embarrassed to say it so they just drift apart. All because of an electronic miscommunication.

I have a friend and we discovered that our PMs were not going through. But we sensed something was not right and just asked each other. I know from watching my daughters and their friends through the years that too much is taken too personally and without full understanding.

anyway, I do see the good in the internet. I just think people need to remember, like you said, a lot can be lost in text...and even lack of text.

Thanks for your response.

FaceBook Depression -- Social Media fall out.


Empath

I remember when I first joined Facebook my daughters would always yell at me because I'd have unanswered friend requests and unread notifications. I didn't realize I had to click on these things inside my profile account, I just responded via the email notification. And for some reason sometimes I did not get that.

So this is another strong point. Maybe Kim didn't see your request? If she's new she may be confused on how to use it. But people formulate ideas around responses/lack of responses. Tones of *voice*...or should I say text.

It's not my favorite way of communicating, but I do love that I can keep in touch with my cousin in Amsterdam easily this way.

I hope you find out what happens with Kim. It would be a shame if you lose 10 years like the girl above solely because of a misunderstanding.

I wish you luck.

Empathetic vs. Empathic


Empath

For as long as I've been coming to EC I have seen this type of conversation recycle and it always comes down to each persons view of the word Empathic.

We can all agree what sympathy is

We can all agree what empathy is and the adj. form of the word Empathetic.

I was trying to stick with how we interpret this word: Empathic. the heightened state of empathy that is received without optical, audio or (5) sensory input. -- Again, the type that wakes me up at night in a panic attack that *doesn't belong to me*. (for search of a better way to describe it.)

How we *pick up* on these external energies is a curiosity to me. There have been theories over the years, and I always like to hear what other people have to say.

I feel the connection to kundalini energy is very *right on*, but then there's that hairy women's cult that believed the hair acts as antennae.

Either way, I believe the input source accesses the mirror neuron area of the brain.

It's all so wonderful that science is finally catching up to the ancient ones.

:-)

Thanks for responding, KatDance. all good points.

To me, and probably many others who are here to study our *empathic* nature, we can agree

whoever it was who said "clairempathy" Thank you too, I like that way of putting it. It kind of expresses the *extra* component of it all. Thanks.

Here's a great blog I found on the subject:

Something I've Learned While Practicing


Psychic and Paranormal

I know what you mean, Marla. I can remember a few *medium-esque* experiences I had that although coming from a loving source (my best friend and father in law) where extremely invasive.

another friend recently asked me if I wanted to do a seance to contact our mutual friend and I declined.

I never have nor would I ever do a seance. I figure if they want to tell me something they know where to find me. Let them rest in peace. But to this day, I would still invite the spirit of a missing person to use me as an instrument of communication if there were any local cases. (thank God there hasn't been) but that's about it. It's like an open invitation, and then I just go about my daily business.

anyway, that's about it. Just taking it all in as I roll along.

Only now there's not private place to deal with it until you can regroup...it's all out there on the wall for all to see.

I wasn't in EC but 5 mins. when you and I went into a mirroring spasm where we couldn't breathe. I thought I was going to faint because the wind left my lungs. You thought I was doing it to you, and I thought you were doing it to me, but the next morning I found out my sister had checked into the hospital secretly to have a tumor removed from her lungs. 3/4 of her lung had to be removed and partially collapsed. At just about that time.

But I don't have to tell you that.

FaceBook Depression -- Social Media fall out.


Empath

So I'm watching Channel 2 and I'm seeing that doctors are finding a correlation between teenage depression numbers growing as a response to the bombardment of social network stimuli.

Apparently many young folks place too much importance on how many responses they get to their status updates and message activity.

Basically the same problems teenagers always placed on social activity only with a new frontier that brings with it instant gratification demands.

I wonder how much more an empathic person might react to this type of nano second communication. And forget all the misunderstandings that can take place via text, without tone inflections and optical input of facial expressions, etc.

It's kind of sad to think about Teenage Angst on Steroids due to electronic bombardment...or lack of bombardment. -- I personally feel there is a Yin and Yang to this topic as with all things.

Understanding just how invasive it can be to click on your Social Networks Wall and see your ex-boyfriend flirting with a new girl, or your best friend who just told you she couldn't go to the movies with you because she's busy updating her status to say she's "..Home. Bored. Anyone want to hang out tonight".

This is something I've been thinking about a lot. But then I know that some people overcome their awkward social skills in cyberland and often begin to mirror them in real time. So I feel it's not all bad.....but it's not all good either.

We have to learn when to hit that Shut Down button.

Blessings on the Run...again.

Empathetic vs. Empathic

hahahaha I knew I hadn't covered every base!! REalized later I would hear about the sixth sense. lol.

Yes, but *where is the antennae*. hahaha.

Yes you are a doorknob. You lead to many new rooms and hallways of the mind.

Empathetic vs. Empathic


Empath

I think we may be up against semantics here, Rook.

The definition of *empathic* I'm talking about here is the one that wakes me up in the middle of a night because I feel someone else's feelings without having any sensory input or conscious awareness of it. (Like last night when my sister invaded from a distance). to me that is what I call Empath-ic.

As opposed to Bill Clinton's empathetic statement "I feel your pain". -- whereas he *knew* he was feeling someone else's pain.

However we are in total agreement re: definition of Empathy and Sympathy. Thanks, Luv!

Empathetic vs. Empathic

This is so interesting I had to read it twice, just because I kept distracting myself the first time thinking "this is so interesting."

I am sure I will be reading it a third time to *complete* this feeling inside of me that is developing around it.

It feels like a very important piece of information. Thank you for sharing it.

Empathetic vs. Empathic


Empath

This is only my humble opinion, but I offer it and invite you to share your own on the subject matter.

To me, EMPATH-ETIC is when we (the general population ) relate strongly to another persons feelings. Most people are the product of this evolutionary capability. The five senses send experience communications to the mind and the empathetic person can strongly relate to what another person is feeling, or would feel if a certain set of experiences were to happen to them.

An EMPATH-IC person is one who can take in energy from a distance or without obvious sensory input (from the five senses: sight, smell, hearing, touching, taste). They just access this energy and take on another persons feelings.

My question: what is the access point? What is the antennae?

After a year and a half of learning here at EC and finding so much interesting feedback I would love to read more about the *antennae* system of the empathic person. How they take in this *distant* or geo specific energy .

Is it a recessed gene a genetic adaptation?

Are the antennae the little hairs on the body that rise or tingle when you come into contact with external energy fields. (I just saw on some cable show about a cult of woman who would not cut their hair because they believe this is in fact an *antennae system*, and I laughed out loud because Lynn and I often joke about this very subject. Also could be the emotion behind the phrase "by the hairs of my chinny chin chin"

I thought we made it up this theory but maybe we are just onto something.)

Then there is the spine. -- the ladder of the chakra energy system. Central headquarters for nerve communications. Could this be why our spine tingles and crawls when we feel *creeped out*....or straightens gloriously when we feel *uplifted*.

These are subjects I would love to read more about, and welcome any input from you glorious folks.

P.S. Feel free to drop off any links or info here. If I don't respond right away it's only because my access to internet is limited as I am quite busy these days. But I will certainly check in, because these are subjects I really am interested in.

Sending out jello shots of love to all.

Have a simply glorious day!

Another night in Ghostville


Psychic and Paranormal

Well, I don't know if this means anything, but as you spoke of the growl I had this strong impression of a coyote...possibly a spirit of a coyote. It was very strange, this feeling I got, because it also came with a strong Native American feel.

?? Native American coyote????

spiritual shapeshifter??????? I don't know, Angel. that's just what went through my head as I was reading.?????????

Let us know what happens. I send a prayer that the spirit calms down and "SITS....like a GOOD BOY....good boy."

*gives spirit coyote a milk bone and pats its head*

Tell it it can stay and coexist peacefully if it protects your family....including your pets but it has to be GOOD.

At least that's what this animal empath would do but then I'm certifiably coo-coo for cocoa puffs. (no not really -- I hate chocolate flavored cereal).

I joke, but I actually did get a strong coyote feeling. Perhaps it is the faithful companion of a gentle Native American spirit that touched your hair.

Let us know what you discover.

I love this. It reminds me of the Magician card in some Tarot decks..the reflection withing the reflection (and look closely...more reflection.)

Love it.

Will return. Need to get some air and sunshine right now. Maybe I'll be able to p/u something later. Thanks.

Not sure if this qualifies for *inspirational* but it's worth a thought.
