Thank you all so much for your kind words and for such amazing advice. Even just reading these responses lifted me a bit
Ive been overwhelmed with so many surrounding energies that i feel myself basically shutting down. lately ive been emotionally separating myself and shutting out the surrounding energies i can take on; trying to not let surrounding energies run through me on an emotional level. This has caused me so much stress that I'm beginning to feel pains in my back, i can't sleep at night, and i have social anxiety unlike I've ever experienced. I also have a headache that comes in waves. I don't feel right. It's exhausting being an empath and i guess i decided i needed a break, but its only hurting and not helping. I know this might not make a whole lot of sense but if it does to someone, could you share any tips with me on how to healthily channel energy? I'm feeling a major buildup/ overload and I'm starting to crash
For as long as I can remember, watching someone throw up (in person or on screen) bothered me immensely. I always avoided movies where there is a 'throw-up-scene'. I assumed it was for the typical reason; its 'gross' therefore makes me feel queasy. On Halloween, a friend of mine got sick and I toughened up and helped her; rubbed her back/ held her hair. I realized that I'm not bothered by the look, sound, or smell of vomit, but seeing someone get sick or hearing it runs through my body and makes me feel as if I'm going to vomit/ just vomited. Its just the intense energy that I tend to gather from others!!! Typical yet gross empath realization. Hope everyone had a happy and safe Halloween.
i'm so excited and eager to explore the one thing about me that I've struggled with my whole life. Im sure we can all agree, its a blessing and a curse. The first time i heard the term empath was this past summer. I was extremely interested, and when i looked it up, it all fell into place. Even today, after i sent out the request to join this group, work was getting busy; people were walking in and out. Things have been getting so hectic lately in my life that even just a constant change in surrounding energies works me up. While this anxiety was occurring, my friend called me having some personal issues. i began to feel her pain and it took me a while to center my thoughts. Im hoping i can get some advice and make new friends throughout this site. I hope nothing in this went against the restrictions. hope you all have a lovely night
