@pinkrose ABSOLUTELY!!!!! I CAN'T EXPRESS HOW MUCH THIS HAPPENS AND I THINK PEOPLE WHO DON'T CONSIDER THEMSELVES EMPATHIC EXPERIENCE THE SAME THING!!!! First of all, you very well may know this but I'm just throwing it out there for anyone, but energy cords are developed whenever we even think of someone else or vice versa. (Some people call that a psychic attack if the other person is thinking negatively about you...) So you don't even have to interact with people to have energetic cords develop. That's why a lot of people say even during the day if not at least at night to end your day, you should cut cords with anyone you've interacted with. A lot of times people might ask archangel Michael to cut cords and there's other things you can say and do. Everything is energy, ya know? So even reading posts on Facebook can be too much for me right now. Text messages, especially when you have a personal connection with the person you're texting with are very intense i feel, most of the time. First, we take on and feel energy to a different extent and in different ways than some people do so feeling what's coming through those texts and it lingering with you is (as far as I'm concerned) not even remotely unusual. It's almost like having a really weird dream and that wierd feeling lingering with you all day... That's happened to me alot. None the less, when it comes to anything like texts or even reading things you have no personal attachment to in terms of not even knowing the person who wrote it, i think it all comes down to developing healthy energetic boundaries so we don't "take on" those energies we're feeling that are not for our highest and best good. But, the catch is that everything does happen for a reason so... Maybe sometimes it's a sign that there's something to learn from the experience... But either way, what you originally mentioned is not unusual at all, at least not for me!

@pinkrose, if you have Amazon prime there's an amazing film classified as documentary/special interest and it's called Reasons to Believe. It's very interesting because it even goes so far as to explain how beliefs affect our brains chemically. Some people view the world in a very black and white manner when i personally believe life is far more complicated and intense and multifaceted. Being an empath can be quite interesting sometimes! Sometimes it's overwhelming or draining and sometimes if we establish healthy boundaries it can be very positive. If you pick up on a negative energy coming from anything (music, people, places etc...) Always follow your immediate intuitive hit! If certain music makes you feel there's a dark undertone to it then that may be totally accurate. But when i read your post i was interested in what you said about a certain genre of music feeling as if someone's sold there soul to the devil. This is by no means meant to come across as me criticizing you because I promise that's absolutely not my intention. I'm just wondering if you really look at that in depth if there may be a reason beyond being an empath that may be influencing your reaction to 1 specific genre of music. There could possibly be a more personal reason for feeling it's dark. But what makes being an empath so intense is that you very well may be totally accurate in your perception of it. So there's a lot to consider sometimes I think. I hope my response isn't totally off topic on a side note I just wanted to clarify that noone would ever say they "joined" the Illuminati. You don't join it, you have to be recruited and it's something noone would ever speak of if they were truly associated with it. There's also no actual proof that it exists now. It was originally established as an offshoot of Catholicisum due to a group of people who were against a corrupt Pope at the time. Things do morph into other belief systems however there's also a scepticism and almost mythological aspect sometimes when people go so far as to speak of secret societies with a specific agenda such as New World Order. However, there is also some truth to secret societies existing in this modern day such as the Free Mason's. It's known that they truly are a real "society" however it would still be considered a "secret society" due to the fact that unless you are a Free Mason then you don't know what they truly do and know. That may sound wierd but I'm actually talking to someone as i write this and their description of it isn't the most detailed explanation but there's also reasons for that. Sorry it isn't a great explanation...does the illuminati exist still? It very well might however due to the extreme secrecy surrounding it it's kind of hard to definitely say that it does. But I promise you that if anyone EVER claims to be in it or associated with it in any way shape or form they're absolutely lying and actually being quite ignorent because it is not appreciated when someone claims to be associated with any group of people that they don't have anything to do with. So we are all left to form our own beliefs about things such as secret societies and everything else in life. So... how people form thier beliefs is actually quite interesting and that's why the documentary i mentioned is so fantastic (at least I think it is 😁). I really appreciate your post. It shows there's a lot to think about in life😁
I Want Everyone's Intuition On This
hello Kaitlyn! i'm glad i saw this post. i'm so sorry you are going through this. i know how hard it is to not feel safe or be safe in your own home, i went through it my entire childhood and there were times when my mother and i had to pack up and go stay at her friends homes until she was finally able to get this person out. i can truly feel what you are going through and when i read the words "when he gets angry he turns into someone i don't recognize, he is scary when he's mad" my immediate intuitive hit was GET OUT!!! it is time for you and your mother to go somewhere safe. i'm not trying to be harsh or insult the psychic's abilities, but DO NOT WAIT FOR A PSYCHIC READING IF YOUR SAFETY IS AT RISK! leave, get the $ together and consult them after. i understand parents not wanting to split up a family and it's very possible your mother is feeling apprehensive about doing that, but your situation has progressed beyond that. truth is, i think you already know what you guys need to do...you have amazing abilities and can see alot that others can't. the fact that you are asking about this makes me feel like you already know but you may be holding out a bit by trying to get validation for leaving. i know it's hard, and you may not even know that you know what needs to be done. i suggest you sit down with one of your crystals (which ever one immediately resonates w/you when you look at them), hold it and connect with it energetically, even ask that it work with you. then i'd call on archangel michael and archangel raphael to be with you and ask for their guidance and be still...and see what you hear, feel, think, know....just let them guide you. i do promise that it is truly best for your mother and you to leave. but whatever you do please know i am praying for all of you and sending positive energy. if you want to feel free to message me any time. please stay safe my friend
with love and light, -michellem

when think of a portal i think of a passage way to another...dimension possibly...i'm not sure if it would be another dimension or what, but don't portals usually allow access to a location? for example. wouldn't the portal in your basement have provided what i think of as a doorway for spirits to pass through into your home? does that make sense? i always thought the word portal referred to a passage way of some sort. also, how did you know it was there?also, i don't know where you are located but you could always see if there is psychic or metaphysical worker of some sort that rids homes of entities. there are people who will come and clean the place out when people are really troubled by some sort of spirit. and, i'll check his website and message you his info, but i went to this man for some past life regression and he's able to simply speak to someone on the phone about a possible "haunting" or the presence of spirits and actually inform you as to why they are there and to get them to truly pass over into the white light. he's amazing. i know first hand. as for portals moving locations, i believe when it is closed off, that's it...you've closed it. maybe new ones have opened some how but i don't feel the ones you closed relocated and opened back up. unless you didn't nail them shut well enough

I asked my friend about the portals and she said he maybe upset or just lost because he's can't get back to the portals. But she said she doesn't know alot about that so that's all she can think of. Are you scared ever? Like when he was in your room watching you all that time were you scared??? Cuz I'd be terrified! But I also don't see spirits so I'm not sure how if feel of I was used to seeing them. However I do know when my cats are running around making noise (we had 2 and they were brother and sister) and before the sister passed away I always knew when her brother was running around taunting her but those noises didn't scare me cuz I just knew without a doubt it's them I'm also curious as to whether you know where the portals went to?! How your day is full of light and love -michellem

Hey Kaitlyn I've never been in this group til about 15 minutes ago and immediately came to your post cuz, well cuz it's you your abilities are amazing and I immediately thought the reasons why they visit you and then i saw Fancy Girl's post about reasons spirits visit and she explained it perfectly. Sometimes spirits don't want to let go of attachments so if the man outside lived there he may not like that you're in his home and that's why he stands the and glares at you. I'm curious about what he'd do when he was showing up in your home. How long did that last before he was outside? And can you think of anything significant happening around the time he went outside? I mean any event even in your life. Was it after you tried speaking to him or did you you sage and suddenly he was only outside? Ok, I just texted my friend who's psychic abilities are outstanding. She suggested a couple things. 1. Spread salt around your property 2. You need to ask your spirit guides to step forward and you also need to talk to your gate keepers. Gatekeepers are the ones who watch the gate between worlds and allow communication from the other side. You can find your gate keeper by simply asking them to show themselves and ask for a name. She also said you can ask the the Angels help you in a meditation to reach your gatekeeper. Then you set firm boundaries as to what you will and won't allow through your gate. She says if you ask the gatekeeper to show themselves she feels you won't have a hard time making that happen because your so connected to the spirit realm. She also says she's hearing that you are perfectly fine, there's nothing attached to you that would cause you to be unsafe. So most importantly as your gatekeeper to show themselves and ask for a name and tell them the rules. They'll keep anything you don't want in faraway from your home
Awesome! Thank you for such a great response. I'm glad it resonates with you. So I study crystals and make crystal essences/elixirs and I love that I've met someone I can learn a thing or two from don't know if you've been on this site but I order most of my stones and crystals from it. If you haven't YOU MUST CHECK IT OUT. www.healingcrystals.com it's got the most beautiful energy...trust me I was shocked that I actually ordered crystals online, I never expected to to get some I hadn't felt and held. Know what I mean?

Dude! I forgot to suggest affirmations! They have a profound affect on your life and are an amazing wat to manifest what you want. Couple important things, always state them in the present tense. The wrong way "I will be safe and surrounded by divine protection". THE RIGHT WAY "I am safe there is divine protection surrounding me". State it out loud, repeatedly through out the day with conviction and belief and add some oomph behind, don't just mumble it, SAY IT LOUD AND PROUD AND AS IF YOU KNOW YOU ARE SAFE. Even if you doubt it will happen you still say it like it has and as if you believe in it. There is a book by Louise Hay called "you can heal your life" she shows you how to transform your life with affirmations. It's probably really cheap on amazon. Take a look at it and keep your head up! You're doing great
I'm very glad you are feeling better that's wonderful to hear just wanted to say that I've used an abolone shell before but it really heated up with the sage in it as opposed to holding it over the shell to catch ashes. I don't know if that's happened to you. But it got pretty hot which surprised me cuz so many people use them. Maybe mine was an imposter!!! Like it was a spy for the Shell's Of The Sea organization. I've heard they're nobody to mess with!!!!
Talia, first I want you to know that I know you're actually on the right path! I know it sucks but look at where you are at. You've escaped all the things that were literally ripping your life apart! That shows you are one hell of a strong amazing person. I commend you for whhat you've done!!!! I'd also like to point some things out. First of all your senses are not as blocked as you think, because if you really look at the situation you know that that your purpose is to help people. Most people would be so jaded by now that they wouldn't even care about helping other people. Also you knew how bad things were and that you had to get out of it. Alot of people stay in the same horrible situation because they've gotten to believe they're not worth any better than what they're experiencing. So your ability to know the truth about what you needed to do was thoroughly in tact. and. You were having visions! You knew undoubtedly what the future had in store for you if you didn't get out! We undermine ourselves constantly that's cuz our ego likes to make us second doubt ourselves. It is part of what I believe is blocking you. Now I can tell you a couple things that are affecting you right now. 1. You have post traumatic stress disorder 2. You're making the difficult transition from surviving to living. You are learning that you don't have to survive anymore. It's like getting clean and sober, you have to make a 180 degree turn in order to change so you are not stuck in the same hell were in because you left it and it needs to stay behind you. That is a massive transition it's a huge identity crisis, you are altering your entire existence by not surviving, but living life which is so foreign that it's almost unimaginable. But you have done huge things and taking massive steps to make that transition possible. I know all this because I had to go through it myself. It is so shocking to your system that you almost don't know how to function through it. But you are and you will make transition to living your life and not surviving it. I suggest you get a therapist because they can help you deal with your PTSD because that has a severe effect on how you perceive what is happening around you. Even though you left it behind it's still affecting you and you need someone who can teach you how to control certain triggers and help you heal the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual trauma from the things inflicted upon you. You're also in shock. It's almost like you are mourning a loss. You had to abandon the person you were and now become the person you were born to be. BUT YOU ARE DOING IT! YOU FEEL LOST BUT IF YOU DIDN'T I WOULD BE WORRIED. When it comes to your abilities you can get them to surface again. You have to have faith and I suggest you develop a spiritual practice if you don't have one now. Ask your angels to help you, learn to balance your chakras, spend time in nature, take care of yourself by nourishing your body with proper sleep, eating well, and doing something physical (I highly suggest yoga!) Get reiki treatments (there are alot of places that have student clinics that charge almost nothing if they charge at all for a reiki treatment), meditate....do anything that will lower your stress level and is connected to the spiritual aspects of life because they bring the divine person you are back to life. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. Also start to try and live in the moment and be mindful because that will help you notice the signs that are happening around you. It's your angels and God (if that's how you refer to source energy) sending you messages and guidance. You are going to be perfectly fine and you're clairsenses an empathic abilities are alive and kicking but just suffocated right now. You are going to bring them to life but you do have a lot going on and all of that affects you on all levels. Having faith and your spirituality is what is going to awaken what you feel has fallen asleep. Please message me if you need help at any time no matter what it is regarding! I've lived what you are living, I am also in the process of reawakening abilities. And one last thing, it's vital as an empath to protect your energy field. There are visualisations you can do that will clear your aura of any negativity you've collected in it, but I highly suggest you pick up a couple of Crystals to carry with you and have around you at all times. Grab some amethyst, black tourmaline and seraphinite! They will provide protection from absorbing energies that are negative, provide safety and healing, and connect you with the spiritual realm and your angels and guides. They don't have to be expensive. Tumbled stones are usually a couple dollars at stores that carry crystals. If you need help finding a store message me and I'll find you one. I'll make sure you get the Crystals that will provide protection and healing. So don't worry about that. Just concentrate on yourself and know that by reaching out in this community is a huge step in the right direction in terms of adapting to your new life. And congratulations! It's like you've been reborn and you are going to create a beautiful life.
With love and light, Michelle
HannahZen, I work with crystals and also make crystal essences/elixirs and I have so many books about crystals you'd almost think I was a hoarder stones and crystals that protect our energy field and transmute negative energy are really beneficial to empaths. Amethyst is very protective and energetically forms a bubble around you to protect you from negative energy. It's also associated with St.Germain and the Violet Flame which transmutes negative energy and anything that is not aligned with your highest good. Black tourmaline is known for its ability to fend of negative energy and is a great thing to carry with you to keep you safe. You may also want to consider rose quartz. It's energy is gentle but highly affective in opening the heart chakra, healing emotional wounds, filling you and your space with love and compassion and it helps raise your vibrations which is really important. Especially when you're an empath. The higher a person's vibrational level is the happier they are and they're able to start living a life of love. The more we heal ourselves the more we can help others heal hope this helps some

I hear you. Laughter is nourishing to the soul. So Gem if you read this, I'll give you something to laugh at, even if you're laughing at me, as long as it puts a smile on your face I'll be happy to try and lift your spirits. I know how difficult depression is. But just have faith that not only are we on your side but so are the angels

Fancy Girl I didn't forget about you but do you know if Gem Will get notified that she was mentioned in a comment? I hope she sees this!
Hi Gem! I smudge alot because I smudge all my crystals when they're new and periodically when I know they need to be cleansed energetically. Just like karma, I also smudge my home and the corners are really important because stagnant energy really likes to collect there. Now in case you don't know the next couple things I'm going to tell you about smudging I cannot stress how important they are. 1st ALWAYS OPEN A WINDOW WHEN YOU SMUDGE!!!! The negative energy you are releasing needs somewhere to go and you want that to be somewhere far away so out the window it must go!!!! 2nd when you smudge you want to cleanse and get rid of the negative energy first and bring in the positive energy after. You also should say some kind of blessing. When I do my house or my friends apartment I state the following repeatedly while I go through out every room: "I ask that all negativity and lower energies be cleansed from this space and that it be filed with divine love and divine light". When I smudge my crystals I say something similar: "I ask that all negativity and the lower energies be cleansed from this stone/crystal, that it be filled with divine love, work only in light and love and for the highest good of all". I'm just giving those as examples of how you can ask to release the negative and bring in the positive. When you're done you always want to say thank you (I always feel I'm thanking the universe, but you can call on angels and deities or whomever you'd like to help bless what you're smudging. And of course thank them when you're done). Now...i think we need to cover your Pyromania when you light sage some people wait a couple seconds for the flames to burn out but then some people wait a couple seconds to make sure the sage has begun to burn and then gently blow out the flame. Just do what resonates with you. Depending on how much sage I'm using sometimes the flames die down quickly and then sometimes the flames are really strong and then I blow them out. When it comes to putting the sage out so it stops smoking you'll read a ton of different things people do, but no matter how you do it YOU MUST ACTUALLY DO IT when you are done smudging part of the process is ending it by putting the sage out, however in this case it's the fire hazard it creates by continuing to let it smolder that we're most worried about always put it out when you're done. I do what is least recommended and that's running it under a little water to put it out. Dude, it's all good with me so it's simply all good but I do also tend to use a small amount of loose sage so it's pretty much all burned out unlike a smudge stick. You could always put it out in the same fashion people put out cigarettes. Some people put it out my smothering it in a bowl of sand....again, do what resonates with you and feels right. But most importantly don't burn your house down

Leafherder, i'm glad in my post you found something that resonates with you it's always cool when you suddenly encounter other people who are into crystals and are able to share what you've learned. But the best part is that you learn from each other no matter which person has used crystals longer. You never stop learning in general...especially about crystals
Been Working With Crystals And.....
I'm so glad I could help! I don't know how you cleanse them but what I suggest is smudging them with sage. If you don't know how to do that I'll tell you 1st of all since you are releasing negativity (including when you smudge yourself or your home) ALWAYS OPEN A WINDOW NEAR YOU! The negativity/bad energy needs somewhere to go and you want that to be outside. Always state an intention while smudging them. So light a smudge stick or loose pieces of sage in a heat/fire proof bowl (some people put the sage in an abolone shell) let the flame burn out and when the smoke starts to rise hold the crystal a few inches above the sage allowing the smoke to bathe every part of the crystal. So turn it around so the smoke touches the entirety of the crystal (whether it's tumbled or raw you want the smoke to cover every part of the crystal. The entire surface area, even allowing it into any cracks or facets of the stone) while you do this you want to state an intent that always releases the negativity FIRST then replaces it with positivity. This is what I say (and you always want to say "for the highest good of all") I say " please cleanse this crystal of all negativity and lower energies and fill it with divine love, work only in love and light and for the highest good of all. Thank you". If that doesn't jive with you then use your intuition and state what you feel is right. But remember to get rid of negative energy first before replacing it with positivity and to always state for it to work for the highest good of all! That last part is vital because the energy crystals emit affect not only you but the people and space around you. Some people run crystals under water while envisioning them being bathed and filled with white light but....I personally am not comfortable with that because alot of crystals water soluble (selenite for example is so fragile that it will dissolve in water) however all crystals in the quartz family are perfectly safe to put in water. Do whatever YOU feel is right. Always follow your intuition. That's the most important aspect to deciphering all the information about crystals that you'll come across. If you come across info that just doesn't feel right to you (especially when it's someone's opinion) then just walk on by! Always follow your intuition because just like in every other aspect of life, the same thing doesn't work for everyone. Also know this: alot of crystals are toxic! So for example when I make a crystal essence if I were to use a crystal like selenite i have to use the indirect method (which means the crystal never ever comes in contact with the water). Now a very good general rule to remember is if a crystal ends in "ite" it's toxic (there are a few exceptions but not many) for example: selenite, Sugilite, calcite, HOWLITE (I remember you listed that as one you have) and obviously you can see the pattern some crystals are so toxic that you actually need to wash your hands after holding them... However my hands haven't fallen off or rotted as of yet so I wouldn't let that keep you up at night
I can totally relate to what you are describing. First of all I feel being an empath can show up differently for people. Also remember that with such heightened abilities to feel, the results are manifesting in different ways. Just because you are an empath doesn't mean you don't have other abilities. Plus I believe that empaths are very capable of utilizing the energy they experience in ways that seem like psychic abilities. It all ties together. You feel and assess the energy and can FEEL the results of the energetic knowledge you're receiving. Remember that everyone's energy field contains energy they are producing besides energy from other sources. You feel energy people's thoughts create too. What you're experiencing isn't unusual and I also experience it. We perceive energy in more than one way. We don't just feel them, we collect their knowledge. It's complex. We're energy beings having a human being experience

Hello. I'm glad that I saw this post because I study Crystals and have for a long time and I also make crystal essences. Numerous things could be causing these sensations to happen. I'm going to suggest a couple things some of which you may do so don't think I'm underestimating you always research crystals and there healing powers as well as the known mental, emotional, physical and spiritual affects they can cause. There's a website I highly recommend you go to (www.Healingcrystals.com) they have tons of accurate information on almost every crystal. You can search for the types you have and find out about what they do, also you can send a message to them and as long as it's only 3 sentences long they will have a crystal expert email you back. It's the first place I would recommend you start. Now, some people do have physical reactions to the energy crystals have. You are obviously extremely sensitive to these energies. So, you will want to always make sure you cleanse your crystals energetically (I recommend saging them) because they collect energy from all people, places and things they interact with. Always cleanse them immediately after obtaining them so you are not being exposed to any negative energies they've absorbed. You also want to do this periodically to keep them healthy and clear. Now there is a possibility that you might be experiencing crystal chaos. If you have tons of crystals on or around you at all times you could be overloaded by all the energy each carries, which for you would be completely overwhelming. If it's affecting your sleep make sure you are not keeping them in your bedroom or next to your bed at Nightime. If you research each crystal online you will of course come across some conflicting information. So seek out tons of resources. A great huge book I would recommend is "the book of stones". Judy hall has numerous books and you may want to start with her " crystal bible " book. In total there are 3 volumes but start basic. Limit the amount of time you spend with and handle your crystals and see if that lessens your symptoms. You may be so sensitive to them that you need time away from them. Also, claer quartz amplifies all other crystals energies so since you are starting out, you want to spend time with each individual one to see how each affects you, however I wouldn't suggest having clear quartz around while you do this because it will make the energies too strong and you would not be able to assess your base line reaction to each one accurately. You definitely need to know that some crystals are extremely powerful and when starting out learning to work with them there are some that are more suitable for experienced crystal healers. You need to ease your way into this because you are clearly on energy overdrive. Also, crystals and reiki work beautifully together. You should also cleanse your energy field too in order to rid it of all the energy that has collected. You can sage yourself as well. So, spend time with each individually to get to know it, cleanse them and yourself, and research research research! I can't stress enough how much I suggest you start with the website I mentioned. It's the only one I'll actually purchase from and numerous crystal healers I've communicated with feel it's the number one site also. Feel free to message me if you are overwhelmed or have questions. I hope this isn't too much all at once. But trust me, you never truly stop learning about crystals. So start slow.
With love and light, Michelle
