Empathic sensitivity to earth locations and their energies.


Empath

Hello,

I certainly get this; both negative and positive.

Sadly in the Uk most of our land scape is manmade so finding (relatively)untouched nature can be difficult but where it exists it is a very powerful positive energy and those are the places I like to recharge.

Some places have such negative energy they give me the creeps. The most obvious example for me is Salisbury Plain, a genuinely horrible place full of ancient burials and modern military. Probably doesn't help that Stonehenge has been abused and disrespected; I feel that its purpose was to siphon off the negativity.

On a smaller scale looking for houses with me can be awful (apparently) as I will just completely dismiss some places as soon as I walk in the door and sense the energy there!

Is there such a thing as binding an Empath's gifts?


Empath

Hi,

Maybe the problem is trying to use your empathic ability to change things. Sometimes things and people have to sort themselves out and you might just have to watch things happen and be there to offer sympathy/understanding after the event. Sorry... this may not be entirely what you want to hear but just mentally stepping back form a situation may stop you feeling burned.

Anyone else deal with social isolation?


Empath

I wish I could think of a solution for this too and like CC sometimes prefer being alone than with people who drain me.

Some people I have an immediate gut reaction to and know that I have to limit my time around them but this can be very difficult in some circumstances. I have very few true friends and even they don't fully understand me.

Hello,

I have never had a really violent reaction to another person but often feel very unsettled after meeting certain people. For example at the moment I am trying to get over having a very brief but harmless conversation with someone who on the surface is caring friendly etc (she is a paediatric doctor) but who leaves me feeling scared and jumpy. I frequently meet people like this and I had thought it was just me being odd.

A friend who believes in such things has suggested to me that the people who I feel uncomfortable around harmed me or were harmful to someone in a past life.

Too much empathy for my kids


Empath

Thanks for the reply. Schools here in the UK definitely are not set up for the sensitive amongst us. I will try some of the things suggested Thanks again!

Too much empathy for my kids


Empath

Hello, Struggling with this myself at the moment.

My son is having a very difficult time at school at the moment due to an insensitive individual and I can feel every hurt as it happens. It is exhausting.

The school has very little understanding of children who are sensitive and their advice is "just get him to ignore it" . My son is an empath too so can feel the other childs aggression and can feel my frustration with the school and can feel his own sadness reflected back from me!! I am starting to feel myself shut down to try and dampen my feelings and his but I don't know if this is going to help.

Where are we all from?


Empath

It is a lovely place (not as spoilt at Cornwall!)

Must say though that Sals Plain completely freaks me out whenever I have to travel through it, no idea why!! Some houses and shops have the same effect on me.

EMPATH NEW FRIEND EXCHANGE

Hooray another Robin Hobb fan.

Love her description of Wit ability. Explains the long-lasting pain when empaths lose a pet!

how do identify sources of negative energy???


Empath

I am sorry you had to go through this: you are not alone. I often get this and find it very difficult, often finding the feelings last for days. sometimes I never find the source and just have to let it dissipate by itself (a bit like letting a stray cat find its own way home)

Where do I start?

I have found that yoga helped me. I need the physical and mental grounding it gives me.

Hello Everyone,

Seems to be a horribly common problem. I find it difficult to make friend and have seen a number of friends slowly drift away as their personal problems resolve and I am no more use to them. Yes, I am cynical about people but the few friends I have at the moment I value.

I am not sure what us squishy empaths can do about it: we can't change other peoples personalities. At least on this site we are like-minded.

Hello,

I am in South West England where I suspect the weather is a little different to Texas at the moment!

Locations with a higher frequency or energy?


Empath

Living in south west Britain I am well used to certain places having peculiar energy.

Salisbury Plain makes me feel ill until I can see Stonehenge (and then I just feel fed up with all the tourists!!!). Its due, I think, to all the burial sites.

what makes you happy?


Empath

So many things but especially standing on the tops of the moorland hills near where I live and feeling the wind nearly knock me off my feet, the smell of crushed tomato leaves, my sons belly-laugh, finally getting to the end of the knitting pattern without having to frog it again and a really nice cup of tea!. The list is endless!

Is being an empath genetic?


Empath

Interesting. Scottish possibly empathic mum, sensitive Welsh dad and I am empathic and so is my son. Not sure if its nature or nurture but it seems to run in some Celtic families

I only came across this site a few weeks ago and I am feeling overwhelme dthat there are people like me with the same feelings and experiences of loneliness. I often feel that my loyalty is one-sided and end up feeling used. At the moment I have a few people I can call friends but at some point I can see the same pattern being repeated.

How can we connect with other empaths for friendship away from this site?!!!

I have heard that making friends for empaths can be tricky and certainly that is my experience.

Wanting to connect intensely without going through the inane small-talk phase is difficult and I have always found it hard to make friends . I have a number of aquaintances but only a few really good friends . Even those few friends I dont think 'get' me.

LIke Melinda suggests it may be an empaths way of protecting oneself.

Finally aware (I think!)


Empath

Hello

well I am finally here!

I have spent many years thinking there was something wrong with me but after a few recent events I have realised that I and my children are empaths.

I have always been more connected with animals and nature than most people I know but find people overwhelming as I seem to pick up everyone elses energy, good or bad. Often I cant work out if feelings are my own or someone elses. My children are like this too and I hope that I can help them more now I am aware of this ability.

I am an ex-nurse who gave up nursing after having childen as i couldnt handle all the extra emotions of children and clients. one day I want to go back into nursing but I will have to learn to shield myself from all the emotion. I find friendships difficult as I put up shields somehow, but when busy and stressed at work I couldnt do this.

Does any one else pick up the energy of a place? On many occasions when looking at houses to buy I have been aware of negativity/ residual energy in a place and couldnt ever live there, despite the property being perfectly fine in the physical sense. My partner does not get this at all!

Sadly I think that empathy to this extent is the sort of 'soft skill' that is just not valued, even if it is recognised.

Eyes Opened


Empath

Hi,

I am also new to the forum and am an ex-nurse thinking about going back into nursing after a long break. I always found that I was overwhelmed and stressed at work but couldnt quite work out why.

I wonder if now I am aware that I am an empath I may be able to go back into it but will need to learn how to defend myself. In a busy ward or nursing environment I wonder how much energy and concentration I will have spare in order to maintain my defences though.

I too struggle with friendships: I have a few good friends but struggle to make new friends as I cant do the small talk and like to shield myself.
