Can you have more than one spirit animal?


Psychic and Paranormal

Well, I encountered them again last night during meditation. It's always a particular guided healing meditation where they come in the strongest. The horse met me in the forest we greeted eachother affectionately..this time he lowered himself for me to get on him so I did. He trotted off and suddenly there were see through stairs (so I could still see the leaves/trees of the forest but we were trotting up these stairs for ages.Then we got to the too and it was a lovely lush landscape with a lake. He lowered to let me down and I walked alongside him to the edge of the lake and snuggled up to him both sat down. I at this point remembered to ask him if he was a guide..he nodded and I got a strong feeling of a friend spirit side who died in 2008. I asked directly are you Ellis? He nodded but I also got the feeling of the word yes (if that makes sense?) at this point I cried not just in the meditation but I became aware of tears coming down my cheeks. I immediately then got a circle of lilac mixed with pink (I get lilac when my Nana is with me and have had pink during reiki and the practitioner told me pink was my Gran) the circle of these mixed colours appeared to be rising large then sinking into me and rising and repeating almost like it was making it clear they were with me and comforting me?! Then I got a green circle, which I've also had during reiki and told the practitioner I thought this was Ellis but because it appeared with the lilac circle who she agreed was my Nana, she said she felt strongly it was my Nanas husband..my paternal grandad. I still feel like the green is Ellis but obviously this is all new to me and she's more progressed spiritually so I'm confused about that.The dolphin showed up and the horse nudged me toward the water I got in and greeted my dolphin, instead of taking me to see loved ones spirit side (maybe because I was getting them as colours behind my closed eyes) the dolphin seemed to want me to hold on while we positioned ourselves in a way that allowed for the horse to give me healing energy from his third eye which he opened, as it came out mind opened to receive it and the dolphin held us steady. I asked who the dolphin was but I didn't get an answer so will keep trying.How do we know that what happens during meditation/dreams is really coming from them and not our own imaginations.. What we wish for things to be? Is there a way we can tell or is that where faith comes in? XBlessingsGem

Psychic and Paranormal

Hi guys, thanks for your replies.I'll try to remember to ask next time and see if I get a response. It all feels very positive when it's happening and I sometimes feel bursts of 'love/electric' in my heart and when the horse did the third eye light to me I felt that area on me tingle/pressure. I always feel extremely content after seeing them.Hopefully they'll give me a hint if I ask.I think with it all being relatively new to me, I get caught up in the wonder of it all and forget I can ask questions lol.Thank you both x

Can you have more than one spirit animal?


Psychic and Paranormal

I've been meditating for approximately 3months. During my early meditations I always ended up in water (sometimes because it was guided meditation to water other times its just where I ended up) I always had a dolphin greet me and stay with me. Sometimes it took me to meet loved ones spirit side.I've also since meditation more regularly and intensely had a white horse, I feel he's male. He usually meets me in wooded area/forest and escorts me to waters edge or a clearing with a pool/waterfall (water seems to be a theme for me). Anyway on two occasions now whilst in the water and looking back at the horse..he suddenly opened a third eye on himself and last time it happened mine opened too and light came from his into mine. It felt very powerful.Could both these animals be my totems? Or do you usually only have one?Blessings x

Empaths: When Faced with Conflict, how do you deal?


Empath

I struggle depending who the situation involves. If I know a conflict will happen due to me having to enforce boundaries that are being crossed I have to psych myself up to it. I have to be very clear of what I need to say and it takes such an awful lot of concentration and energy to be able to stay present and detached enough to get what I need to out..and not be sucked in to the other persons reactions.Being around other people having conflict or awkward situations causes me to feel huge embarrassment to the point I feel my face burning and all my senses feel heightened. I find it almost painful to witness.When my husband has come home after conflict with anyone I try to be a rational voice for him but can really feel the anxiousness as if it's my own and sometimes I struggle to know if it is or not..especially if it's do to with his parents as they are a source of angst for us both.I have to do meditation on those days to clear my mind and feel better.

I have the same problem it's definitely not just you lol. I've always had huge difficulties throwing things away. Just like you said 'memories in time'. Clothes wise since last year when I realised it was becoming ridiculous, I decided I'd be able to do it if I knew they were going to help/make someone else happy..so I got all the winter warm clothes I never wore anymore and took to my local city and handed them out to the homeless, I made sandwiches and drinks to give too. Before that I'd sit and hold the clothes remembering the times/memories from wearing them. I keep every scribble my children have made..even ones that don't resemble anything or mean anything to the kids, I have boxes full. I have pictures the kids I worked with gave me when I was a teaching assistant year ago because I can't throw away knowing they were done with love.Pebbles, shells, pine cones found by the kids on days out. Train tickets and so on!I'm glad I'm not alone ha, thanks for making this thread x

That's really interesting about fibromyalgia and spiritual gifts. I was diagnosed fibromyalgia Aug 2014. Drinking wise it's most definitely affected my tolerance. I used to enjoy a few drinks at weekends but since diagnosis and the meds I can't stomach more than half a glass.Id never heard of fibromyalgia till I was diagnosed with it. X

Empaths and sprits


Empath

Hi, I'm pretty new here too. I've also been googling trying to find info about what I think I am. I know exactly how you feel..(no pun intended lol).Since waking to these possibilities a lot about myself and life make more sense..but even that caused me to question myself like 'is this me trying to find a more comfortable reason for depression/anxiety ect.'However other people's moods definitely affect me, ive always had this weird thing where I take on other peoples accents and sometimes their characteristics (always brushed it off as a weird character floor of my own), I analyse everything including how sticking up for myself might make the offender feel!! I'm trying hard to work on that last one because I internalise an awful lot.What Rene has said to you has helped me too..so thank you Rene.My advice and bearing in mind I'm new to so someone else might have better advice...YouTube some grounding meditations and do them regularly. When talking online helping this person imagine yourself surrounded by white light. This is protecting you while you help the other person.It's in our nature to help it's just we need to take responsibility for protecting ourselves and not becoming drained. X

Can the colours some people see with eyes closed be spirits?


Psychic and Paranormal

Hi Bill, thank you for your reply. Yes my Nana passed when I was 7 and I definitely had a strong feeling it was representing her. The Green colour a friend spirit side came into my mind. I associate lilac with my Nana because she appeared to me in a kind of dream the night before her funeral...years later my dad told me she was laid to rest in a lilac dress because it was her favourite colour.I suppose before these recent happenings in my life I'd aways assumed/thought spirits appeared to those blessed with gifts in their human form.I'm learning new things all the time lately it's nice to have more knowledgeable people here to add their thoughts on things.Thank you.

The way you use your eyes?


New Age

Hi. I'd like to be able to see auras and so have read up a little and found some eye excersises.I can now use my eyes to see the bright white outline of inanimate objects. I tried using my vision the same way on my cat lol..however my eyes stoped working the way I was using them because they became distracted by her movements with breathing.Am I on the right track though...is it the same vision technique I'm using on inanimate objects to see aura of living things? Also are you not meant to blink till you get the colours?Any tips or clarification gratefully appreciated. X

Days of the week........


Empath

Hi. I've always suffered seasonally. I've always tended to get very down during winter as it gets darker earlier (UK). Crisp autumn days with the colours always feels kind of magical and sometimes exciting to me. Spring makes me feel hopeful and I love sunny summer days but like you mentioned about when schools out I can sometimes feel stressed with too many people about so prefer to enjoy the sun in peaceful places.I've been a stay at home mum and a working mum and Mondays do always feel glum to me. I've always quite liked Wednesdays, Fridays (Im a Friday child) and Sunday's because Sundays feel peaceful and less noisy if that makes sense?! X

Can the colours some people see with eyes closed be spirits?


Psychic and Paranormal

I've very recently started seeing Colours behind my closed eyes.I got a sense that one of the colours (pale lilac) was my Nana. It was circular and expanded and contracted in a very graceful way. I also saw dark green and had a sense of this being a friend spirit side. I did get other colours but didn't sense all were spirit mostly these two colours.Or could it just be that the they were around me anyway and the colours meant that I was 'open'?Thought I'd ask here as many of you seem to have trusted contact with yours. I'm very new to these happenings and so am unsure of my senses still. X

Tingling?


Tools for Empaths

Hi Rene, it's happened a few times. The first and what seemed the most intense time was during a guided healing meditation that I've been doing regularly. It did involve healing white light so yes I suppose it could have been that.The other couple of times it was different meditations one again with healing light and the other a relaxing one but I always have my loved ones spirit side around within those meditations and I do often ask them 'what should I do to heal my hurts'? I always get the sense of them telling me to 'stay on this path' recently I've tried asking them to show me what sign to look for in waking life to know they are there but I don't get shown anything..not yet anyway.Thanks for your reply it's good to hear others thoughts on things as I'm so new to all this!

Empath

Hi Sami, I also could have written your post myself. I'm very new to the idea I could be an empath but reading up about it is making sense to me when I look back at my life.Hopefully we'll both learn ways here to tune this gift up in a way that can help people without hurting ourselves in the process!Feels good to have people understand though doesn't it!X

Intense tingling fingertips


Empath

Thanks for your reply Carrieanne. Yes it does feel like some sort of almost electrical energy. Ive had pins and needles before but this was very different. So much more intense and concentrated in the fingers and tips.It's nice to hear someone else has this happen to. Maybe it's like you say...picking up energy or it flowing through during meditation.

Intense tingling fingertips


Empath

I've started getting very intense tingling, almost electric feeling in my fingertips whilst meditating. Just wondering if anybody else gets this? I've been meditating for approximately two months and it's only this past week it's started happening.I've also noticed random tingling and pressure between my brows, this has previously only happened during reiki but since Saturday has randomly come on intermittently. Again I'm wondering if anybody here has experience with this? X

My Reiki practitioner just told me I'm clairsentiant (hope that's spelt right)


Empath

Hi thanks for your reply. It's all still very surreal to me at the moment. I've always felt more spiritually inclined but just plodded on in what's considered normal life. I didn't even know someone like moses would have been classed as a guide? I've tried to look online about it but can't really find much. I always thought my Nana was guiding me. The lady who does my Reiki has clairvoyance but said being an empath is her stronger gift and that's why she recognised me as one.She says my spirituality is awakening and that's probably why she sees bright white light coming from my Brow chakra.I've asked the loved ones I see in meditation what to do but all I get is a sense of them saying 'stay on this path'.Its not specific but I take it to mean the spiritual path.How did you develop after awakening? Was it through meditation or did you have a mentor?

My Reiki practitioner just told me I'm clairsentiant (hope that's spelt right)


Empath

So I've just had my second ever reiki session at home. She said I've a very bright white light coming from my Brow chakra and she said she was told to tell me my guide is moses and to remind me that the spiritual path isn't always easy. She asked if the name Rose meant anything to me (it's my Grandma. Mum's mum spirit side) she told me to get Rose quartz to help with self love.Wow what an experience.I felt vibration between my brows while she was over it and my heart was fluttering a lot.I've tried to look online about moses being a spirit guide but can't really find anything.She told me I'm not crazy, that meant a lot. To have someone understand. That's why I sought out this forum.I think I'm starting to trust the signs and my own feelings now.I just need to learn how to protect myself and tune in to be able to use this gift the right way!

Confused Newby


Empath

Hi Kaitlyn, thanks for your message. Yes I've always felt my nan came to comfort me the night before her funeral and the other times where I've sensed her I feel she was letting me know she's still there for me. My dad said she was a spiritual person and apparently read tea leaves. Lilac was her favourite colour which is why she was laid to rest in a lilac dress.I lost one of my cats last year, she couldn't be saved after a dog attack and I held her paw and nuzzled her head as she was put to sleep.. I was devastated and often still saw her in her usual spots. She came to me out of the blue in a meditation a few weeks ago.. Oh it was heavily to feel her there, so comforting and I came to weeping.I'd be most grateful for any advice and help you are able to inbox me, that's very kind of you. Thank you.Love Gem

Confused Newby


Empath

Hi, ive just joined thank you for accepting me into your community.I've always been told I'm very sensitive and emotionally driven. I've always pondered big life questions from quite an early age really.I seem to feel things more deeply and I don't always understand my emotions. My mum used to gently say I have a tendency to try to fix people and collect 'lame duck's'.I've always felt more connection to the spiritual way of thinking than religious or anything but never really dwelt on that till recently after experiencing trauma within my marriage and how it's shocked me into reevaluating things and seeking out holistic help to heal.I've always had a really strong sense of social justice and have frequently cried and made myself ill worrying about the state of humanity. I cry at adverts, poems in cards, film/TV and recently a lady working in my local shop was being chastised by her boss and I felt like it was happening to me? I felt intense embarrassment, sad, tears started to well up and I wanted to hug her. I was teary the whole walk home. It made me remember how I've always found it almost painful to see people in similar situations. I wondered am I feeling how I perceive I would feel or am I picking up on how the other person feels?Is this happening (becoming more aware of it) because I recently had my first ever reiki session? And I started meditation for the first time in my life two months ago?I had my most profound spiritual experience age 7 the night before my nan's funeral which I was upset about and not allowed to attend. I saw her in my sleep but it wasn't like a dream. Her arms outstretched and smiling wearing a lilac dress..no words just overwhelming love and peace. I told dad on waking and years later when I'd grown up he told me she was laid to rest in a lilac dress. I've sensed her on occasion throughout my life and she is always around in my meditations along with other loved ones spirit side.Ive started to wonder am I an empath? A burnt out one because I didn't know what it was? I've been emotionally burnt out from other people's dramas this last 2yrs but it's not the first time I've suffered burn out from being in oppressive atmospheres.I feel like I've been set on a path but I don't know how to proceed?Any comments or suggestions would be very warmly received x
