Crystals


Empath

Yes, crystals and stones have greatly helped me. The one that is the most helpful for me, it's not a crystal, but it's the tiger iron stone and I was told that's the empath stone. I really love it and it helps keep me shielded when I need it. The crystal I use is the amethyst, but I mostly work with a lapis lazuli stone and the tigers iron. Also, I'm in China right now and I use jade a lot to aid me for healing.
I've noticed when wearing them, they keep me balanced, calm and shielded. Depending on what I ask the stone to help me with, it always obliges. Sometimes though it'll make me feel too shielded or too relaxed. So, if I don't want any of that, I'll usually invoke the stone when I need it and than tell the stone when I don't need it's assistance at the moment. I always carry a stone or crystal in my pocket everyday. It helps, especially for me who's still learning how to control my empathic abilities.

Empath

My situation is pretty interesting. Going into all of it here I think would be too long and little personal. But I can go into some of it. I have a rare arthritis disease with chronic pain that I'm on the path of trying to cure, but my circumstances it's been hard to focus on that. I've been traveling a lot, from China to America, back and forth. Currently, on my vacation here in the states I was kicked out of two places in one week and the place I'm at doesn't have very many parks around it. I'm only here for another six days, then I will be going back to China where my jobs and school is. This is my last semester there.

I've tried my best to make my environment positive and clean. I share my space with my husband, he's supportive but not always as serious I am about being an empath. He has some abilities of being an empath, but I think he has his own way of dealing with it that doesn't always work for me. I just recently got my wisdom teeth out so my diet has been really weird and I haven't been out in nature in awhile.

I recently had to watch my mother in law die before my eyes, get kicked out by my father in law, then get kicked out of my friend's house by her mother, then find out my mother was in danger of dying because of how much neglect my family has put her through and so much more...

I've never really grasped the way of healing myself or taking care of myself. I believe the reason why I have this illness is because I've spent most of my life trying to help people to the point I've absorbed so much negative energy it nearly killed me. So, I've been in counseling for awhile, trying to figure out ways to better cure myself, mentally, physically and spiritually.

I've been trying to use spiritual means of trying to heal myself, I'm still on that path of finding out what's best for me. I'm trying meditations to shield myself, stones, using the fire element, chants, yoga...

Going out into nature helps me a lot, it's been hard to find the time with trying to help care for my mother and then getting my wisdom teeth pulled, so I've been out for awhile.

The other day, I had a strange experience where I was talking to a roommate and it was pretty in depth. He was drunk, but also in a lot of emotional pain, so I tried to help. The funny thing was the next day I felt drunk and hung over, but I don't drink at all. I get myself into situations like that, as soon as I start to help someone, I can't stop myself from going out of my way to nearly harming my physical and mental health to help them. I don't realize it until it's too late.

I found an interesting quote that said you can't set yourself on fire so everyone else can be warm. It reminds me of a lot what I do and I'm sure other empath's feel the same way. It's gotten to a point where I literally cannot help anyone right now, until I figure out how to heal myself and learn how to control my abilities without sucking in all these different toxic energies. I'm just becoming a bit of a hermit because of it.

Empath

Thank you for answering! I'm really happy to get a reply. Thank you for welcoming me and I'm glad your health is getting better. Mine actually has been getting worse. Maybe you could share some things with me if you're willing?

As for the stone, I guess it's a tiger's eye and I'm still trying to feel it out how it works exactly. I was told it takes a month or so for stones like that to activate it's full power. But I think it depends on the person and what you believe. Everyone's beliefs are different and other things work better for other people.

Happy to have found this forum


Empath

Hello!

I'm new. You guys can call me Li. I've recently discovered I'm an empath and I'm having a lot of hardships in my life right now. It's hard because I've been absorbing it all.

I've been using some helpful tools like chakra cleansing, yoga restoration, guerrilla meditation and smudging. It's been hard to continue all that because of how much is going on and how much my physical health is effected by it.

I recently picked up some stones. I was told the cats eye is the empath stone. I was told it helps you listen to your instincts better. But I'm hoping it isn't suppressing my ability to feel others emotions or energies. I don't feel like it does. I feel like it calms things down a lot better and centers me.

But I'm so new and everything is such a mess, I'm just trying to get a handle of it all.

Empath

Hello,I'm new. I'm excited to have found this group. Thank you to the people who put it all together, I appreciate it a lot. I also just recently discovered I was an empath. I always knew I could feel other people's emotions and that I was sensitive to energies in environments and objects, but I didn't know there was a name out there or anyone else struggling like me.So, many different things I've read online or watched about empaths, a lot of people like to deal with it differently and I'm trying to find the best way for me to do it. Like chakra cleansing, yoga restoration and now I'm trying stones because things are so hectic in my life and with my physical health it's hard for me to sit down and do those things that take longer.I recently picked up a cats eye stone and I had a question about it. I know it helps you listen to your instincts better from what I've been told. Does it block you completely from reading other people's emotions? Because I don't want to fully suppress or block my empathy. But I am trying to control it right now and heal myself first.
