Moving house


Empath

and even when I was a kid I used to tell my mom our house was haunted. I could just sense this negative energy within the space, whatever it was. Anyone else ever have an experience like this?

Moving house


Empath

So I recently moved houses after almost thirteen years in the same home, and I can't shake this feeling that there was something terribly wrong with my old house. When I was a kid I was extremely sensitive to spiritual energy (even more than now) and I wouldn't even go upstairs by myself, but only in my own home. Eventually I got over that, but there wasn't a moment in that house that I didn't feel like someone was watching me. Because that's how I grew up I just always assumed I was paranoid and there was something wrong with me; however, we just moved houses and that feeling is completely gone for the first time in thirteen years. I don't know what this means and I was just hoping to seek some guidance.

Harriet the Shrub


Empath

So today I was talking to my grandma when she brought up something I had almost totally forgotten. When I was a toddler there was a lavender plant in her garden that I called Harriet. I was very close to her and I would sit and talk to her for hours, water her, and take care of her, and then I would always take a little piece of lavender with me to smell and make me feel calm, and ever since I've loved the smell of lavender. Anyways, so one day the yard guy accidentally ripped up Harriet and killed her, and it haunted me for a really long time. I little piece of her lived on, and I planted other little lavenders around her so she could grow big and strong again one day. Well I had pretty much forgotten all about this until today, so I went out into the garden to visit my old friend. I sat there for a good 30 minutes and I could tell she was happy to see me again. It was so peaceful, and she let me have some of her leaves to take with me to smell. It's so weird to me when I remember signs of being an empath from my childhood, and I can piecing together this puzzle. Well I just thought I'd share this, and I'd love to hear similar stories from other people if you all have any :)

The 10 types of empaths?


Empath

Hi so I was just reading the other day about how there are 10 different kinds of empaths, and I was wondering if it's normal to feel like you fit into most of the categories? Like is it possible to have a lot of overlap and not just be labeled as one kind of empath? This is probably kind of a dumb question, but I was just wondering what's "normal."

Just saying hi!


Empath

Hi guys! Well I'm new to this community and I've just discovered the name for the abilities I've had for my whole life, which feels great in a way because now I have a name for it and a place where I belong, but it's also kind of terrifying because of how easily I take on other people's negative energy. So I'm looking to learn better grounding techniques and just more about being and empath and spirituality. I'm so glad I found this group!

I'm glad I'm not the only person who feels this way! Facebook makes me feel so bogged down sometimes, but I have to use it for a theatre group I'm in. There are so many sad or angry stories, and it's overwhelming. Also, when people I know post to Instagram I get so emotional about whether or not to like it! Like if someone posted something that feels ingenuine, but it's a really cool picture I feel torn about whether or not to like it. Likewise, when someone posts something very genuine, but it's not a good picture I am torn and usually end up liking it because I can feel that they would be upset if they didn't get any likes. It's like I always have to think about the person's intentions behind the post before I can like it. It's so crazy, and I just thought I was being super sensitive.
