That's true, but it is tempting.
Having my own morals on this is the only way to control remind myself about this.
She was kinda proud during the first few years of knowing about me because during that time, I would hear or know if something very bad will happen to a family member, so she would always trust me when I tell her that something bad will happen.
I know how she feels, yes that is a good thing as an Empath, but her methods and mentality are not exactly right about it.
Since I'm not close with family, she kept blaming things such as my own friends to the point of thinking that I have a spiritual friend, telling me to stay away from family, etc..
At least now I know how to use the Esotheric Cord Cutting method, because when I think about my mother by accident, she will think back about me.
There is a theory on Telepathy which says that when we think about someone, that person will think about us too.
The Esotheric Cord Cutting is the only method I know to to stop or sever any empathic/telepathic connection with people. Even though it is not permanent, it always worked.
I don't know about other Empaths in my college and only in a few people, I sensed that they had abilities but they're not Empaths.
We're still in good relations and not tell other normal people about ourselves.
It is possible that it runs in the family but it is a painful story to say.
Several years ago when my abilities started to manifest, my mother talked about her abilities and some faith healers said about how gifted I am even when I never said anything about my abilities.
The treatments by faith healers were physically painful and I told myself to never wanna go through that again.
To make things short, everything related to abilities and spiritual stuff definitely run in the family, but were not developed because their perception is highly influenced by strict religious views.
A few months back, I went to my hometown and suddenly my mother brought me to see a new faith healer.
She said just to see if something is wrong but she talked to that person behind my back including her suspicion that I had a spiritual friend.
So, when that man was trying to cleanse me, I hacked into his mind to find out what he was doing to me and basically any form of energy that is unrelated to that religion is considered as 'poison' and will be taken out, and then only forms of energy related to that religion will be placed in.
I had completely lost my trust in my mother after that, changed my mind about buying her a mother's day present for the first time...I was deeply heartbroken.
Is there a specific term because in this post, there is the word 'project' and 'radiate',
and before I read this post, I used a method and it works by releasing the kind of energy or emotional wave to the surrounding. I don't think it affect everything because I've only been able to affect a certain radius.
If it's one-on-one, I remember releasing a small energy ball to a person just to let he or she know than I can be trusted.
Those are the only two methods that I've used so far.
Thank you for your explanation.
I was having doubts about my choice in this, which is why I posted this discussion.
After reading the page on The Empath's Commandment many times, I keep on thinking of making my own personalized principles or commandments.
I decided to make it unique, but then I ended up with an Acrostic poetry that tells about my interests which are performing arts and something related to my belief that is about emotion is related to energy.
The total number of syllables increases by one in each line from 6 to 10.
"Nunc et numquam" is Latin for "Now or never".
Dance as a way of life;
Act and perform with passion;
Now or never...nunc et numquam;
Channel energy and emotion;
Empower the self, energize the soul.
For years, Lapis Lazuli was my main gemstone because besides helping me with studies, it also boosts up my abilities when I used it. During that time, my favorite color was blue.
I am also able to connect with my past life and the language from it.
Early this year, physically I need more energy and gradually my favorite color changed to red...and my main gemstone became Red Jasper, but when it comes to examination, I'll use Lapis Lazuli.
I think Red Jasper suits me because I love performing arts especially acting, dancing, and singing...and I read that Red Jasper is known as the stone of actors/actress and all related to performing arts pertaining to the audience.
I wear the common reddish brown color of Red Jasper and color seems to change from time to time, such as redder or lighter.
In my experience, red jasper and lapis lazuli are one of the two opposites such as body/mind and fire/water.
On the internet, it says that Tiger Eye is the gemstone of self-discipline, but it is the only gemstone that I am generally uncomfortable with.
My first experience was several years ago when I tried out one bead of Tiger Eye, and I had a dream of being attacked by a tiger in the jungle.
After that, I stopped wearing Tiger Eye gemstone.
Recently, I found out that the dream about being attacked by a tiger was a piece of my memory in my past life, though I don't remember if I died, but it was traumatic enough for me.
Do you guys feel something like that when you come across Tiger Eye gemstone, or maybe it is only to me.
A friend of mine is not am Empath, but she is a spiritual healer and she made it her own principle not to heal people without their permission.
Then, I was thinking about it because if I only heal people with their permission, it would mean like telling everyone about being an Empath and not everyone is open or accepting towards Empaths.
That is why for me, if I want to heal, I would rather do it with or without the other person's permission.
Since being an Empath, I generally am able to feel emotions and energies around me.
I can feel or sense energies through my hands and my forehead, so I thought of creating healing energies through it and possibly help others this way.
Then, when I searched on the net about "energy healer", the result was about reiki and that we need a real teacher instead of online lessons.
Still, I know I can use my gifts to send healing energies to help people, but I just don't know the name for it.
By the way, what does a "healer empath" mean?
Is it an Empath who can heal, or use a specific method to heal?
I'm just wondering because there are many supernatural and science fiction TV series which include Empaths and their powers, so this is me wondering if anything they said is true.
What do you guys think?
Facebook somehow extends my connection to people in a sense that once I approved someone's friend request, the connection with the other person becomes deeper and I feel more. If something is not right with the other person, it will have a very negative effect on me and the only way to reverse it is to remove the person from my friend's list.
Generally I use Facebook because for communications related to my studies & other students and now, it is the main method of communication with friends.
It's like if I don't use Facebook, there's no way to keep in touch with friends and more difficult to keep myself updated about my studies/classes, etc.
Yesterday, I met a new teacher for this new semester and when she walked in, I felt a bad vibe coming from her and my heart felt very uncomfortable...but I don't think it was her emotions.
I tried to shield myself from that vibe so I can study but that became a struggle to do that and study at the same time.
When I asked other students about her, there were some negative comments but nobody mentioned about feeling anything negative from her.
Then I remember about my second semester in college, I got a very similar vibe from another teacher and even though that teacher and this one were nice to me...I failed their class.
Do you guys know what does it mean to feel that from someone and how to handle it?
I decided to drop that class in this semester even though because of that, I might have to take it with the same teacher in the next or future semester.
I tried to see though people every time to be safe, but the problem at times is when my personal feelings get in my way and I'll take a chance and get hurt.
Thanks, and everyone here is really understanding.
I always think that it's better that way too, but it's not easy finding one especially in this world.
It is like I'll have to travel over the world to find the right person or even to meet another empath.
Now that reminds me of a fortune teller who said that in my past life, I was travelling in search for my love.
I wasn't sure if that's sure but I keep an open mind.
I am 22, and I am asking this question because as Empaths, we generally are able to feel the emotions of others and it is different than normal people who can't who can't read or feel another person.
I mean that we can tell if a person's feeling is true and all without having to go through the conversation and telling face-to-face.
I was in a relationship once but it was only because the other person truly loved me but I broke up because there wasn't really anything else in common and it took a hard time for me to severe the empathic link so I can move on.
Ever since the past month, I started to be able to also see images instead of just feeling emotions when I try to connect to a person's mind.
Like there was a guy today who wanted to talk to me and when I tried to connect to his mind, I saw his intention and I ignored him afterwards.
Even though I am a psychology major student, I rely more on my abilities than what I learned in school.
I used to feel everyone's emotions' on a deeper level at first, but I have learned control myself and selectively choose or connect.
When friends asked me about me being single , I'll just say random excuses but the truth is, I don't think it is worth the risk as myself being what I am.
It's like a very rare chance to find someone.
(I told people that I never had a relationship because it was not in the open)
I remember the previous years back where I was deeply connected to everything and how they overwhelmed me, and I accepted myself as an Empath.
Nowadays, it feels different...I mean, I can still feel the energies and emotions of people and nature around me...but not as deep as before.
When I try to connect with someone's mind, I see images more than feeling emotions.
I wonder if this means I am not an Empath.
If not, then what am I right now?
