Picking up on Animals emotions?
Yes, I can read animals' thoughts and emotions too
I've had this before. I would do an elimination diet to see which foods are negatively affecting you. Eat only fruits and veggies and drink only water for a few days to a week, then try adding back other foods that you like, one a day or week, to see how you react to them and how they make you feel. Then abstain from the ones that upset your stomach.
A splash of apple cider vinegar in my water really helps settle my stomach. I drink this once a day. Also probiotics and fermented foods are helpful to reestablish healthy gut bacteria and create balance in the gut.
Those are just a few suggestions. Good luck! It is possible to find a diet that works for you
No religious upbringing here. In fact, my parents rarely went to church and are more practical/left-brained people (not at all spiritual). Though my mom was interested in the paranormal when she was little and my grandmother (her mother) was diagnosed with a severe mental illness, though never took medication for it. My father was interested in deep knowledge (astronomy, particle physics, and aliens), but other than being very smart, is a black-and-white thinker. So I can see where some of my heritage were the seeds that helped to form my empath abilities. (I was born a pure/karma-free, old soul, empath, and hsp.)
However, there was (and still is) a lot of abuse, drug/alcohol use, suicidal feelings, and mental illness (schizophrenia, depression, ocd) in my family, so I experienced a lot of trauma and abuse, in addition to divorced parents and moving around a lot, as well as dealing with a step-parent and half-siblings, but I believe my trauma actually helped heighten my abilities, as stress often does. It also made it so I did not feel comfortable being me or sharing my differences with my family (or friends for that matter).
So, due to my chaotic upbringing and strict/controlling/abusive parents, I feel that my discovery of being an empath and my gifts was delayed, and deterred to a different course momentarily (mental health sector), but the trauma in my childhood (and after) actually led me to not being able to ignore what was there all along and eventually I rediscovered it
I do wish I'd had more aware and insightful parents and a stable childhood, but I have healed from it and I intend to do better than my parents did, with my own children (first one is on the way!). I'm 36 years old and it's been a long journey of healing and self-discovery, but I'm finally "home" (met my soul mate!) and I'm ready to live life the way it was meant to be lived
Hi and welcome! It sounds like, because your family and friends are closed-minded, your true self has been stunted, and you're confused about things because you don't have someone in person who can relate to what you're going through. But that doesn't mean there is anything wrong with you. You have found a place where people will now understand you
I went through something similar when I was 18. I had very controlling parents and so I did what you've described, which is people-pleasing (changing my behavior to please others) and questioning myself.
The truth is, discovering you are an empath is just the beginning of discovering your true self! Also, all your racing thoughts are a sign that you know something is not right but you can't figure it out, so your brain goes into overdrive. You will learn a lot, as empath is a really broad term for many possibilities, but take your time and don't fret at figuring it all out at once. You have plenty of time
I went the wrong route when I was 18. I thought something was wrong with me and was medicated for being different and confused about who I was because of my difficult upbringing. I was 35 when I finally learned about empaths and that I was one (along with being HSP). Now I'm accepting of myself and true to myself.
Some words of advice...don't be afraid to say no to others or rub others the wrong way by being you or with what you say or how you act. It's more important to be genuine. Some people may leave you and things in your life may change when you fully embody your true self, but have no fear, because things and people that are in line with the real you will come into your life. This is because life mirrors whatever we put out to it
Keep sharing...no matter how crazy what you're experiencing seems...because chances are someone else here can relate. I personally can relate to all of what you've said at some level at some point in my life. Kudos to you for researching and speaking up
I was thinking that your daughter may have had a prophetic dream about the end of the world and the transition to the New Earth. At least that's what it sounds like to me. The theory is, is that only certain people (enlightened, gifted, sensitive) will elevate their vibration to transcend to the New Earth. Maybe your daughter was seeing that you are heading in that direction. Children are very perceptive
I suggest reconnecting (or spending more time) with nature, animals, children...things and beings that make you more heart-centered.
I also recommend reading about spirituality. Spirituality is the key to living from your heart, rather than your mind.
When people get caught up in the "real world" (i.e. making money, success, and even education), they lose touch with the simple pleasures and joys of life - the true meaning of life. By exposing yourself to these things again, you will reopen your heart and have more right/left brain balance in your life. It will take time, but be consistent and it will come back to you
Thanks @lotusfly! I think it could be both of those honestly. I'm definitely developing/awakening lately in many areas. I've always struggled being honest with people, so hopefully it is an indication that I will literally find my voice and be able to be honest when I need to.
That's wonderful! I hope so too
I agree with . I think it is your throat chakra. Has there been anything you've been wanting to say to anyone or in general? It could be that you're in need of being honest about some things, so your throat is warming up because you have the need to talk but aren't, so the energy is there, ready to be used.
It could also be an upgrade to your throat chakra. In other words, the chakra is healing and/or increasing in vibration. I get that with my crown chakra sometimes.
Overall, nothing to be concerned about. Just be aware that your body, mind, and spirit are going through changes and may be alerting you to make some changes too!
, It may be a question of which came first: your down mood or theirs? Sometimes it's hard to tell. But you have to decide if you're going to wait for them to feel better to bring you up or if you're going to take responsibility and change your mood. It's not easy dealing with people's emotions as well as our own. We can't blame others' bad moods, because they can't really help it either. We're all in the same boat of dealing with moods and how we affect each other, empath or not. But environment and the people we associate with play a huge role in how we feel and our state of mind. So choose wisely Choose to eliminate negative people and circumstances from your life to live a more positive existence. We always have choices.
, Yes, you will know what to do when the time is right Keep an eye out for the signs and your gut instincts. You are right that religion can be limiting and make a person feel trapped. Ultimately, we all have to think for ourselves on what is right for us, regardless of what anyone else thinks. Oftentimes, religion comes with a set of rules and makes people feel bad about themselves if they don't live up to them. How about make your own rules/guidelines and beliefs for a healthy/happy life?
, I believe we affect others (even non-empaths) so strongly because of our drastic mood changes and because we are an open channel (that is how we absorb emotions from others) and so others can read us easier than non-empaths. We wear our emotions on our exterior, where some "normals" can hide them better. Maybe also because we can't help but be honest about how we feel.
Wow, you have!?! Well now, I know it can exist...thank you!!! I am currently in a relationship with my twin flame. I feel so comfortable and challenged in a good way by this man. I am not attracted to him :( That is so very sad to me!! I wondered if it was possible to have both? You have answered my question, thank you!!! Enjoy your wonderful find!
There is not a huge physical attraction. It is more of a heartfelt soulful attraction and emotional connection. Appearance is irrelevant when it comes to meeting the one for you. When you are truly in love with them, you are in love with their soul. My partner and I have much passion in our relationship but physical attraction plays a minor part in that.
I used to be hooked on appearances and that is how I got attracted to the wrong guys/men. Lust does not equal true love. And when you meet the one, you'll realize how trivial appearance is. In fact, their looks simply vanish and you see only their personality. You've finally grown up and realized that you love the person's soul, not the physical body.
Quite possibly, you just needed to listen to your intuition more and are now in need of a career change. You don't have to quit your job right away. Just pray for help and be open to the opportunities that show themselves Keep an eye out for the signs that speak to your gut and heart...
@lotusfly, I understand what you are saying...completely. I was really trying to see if someone had actually found a combination of head and heart successfully. My attractions seem to be well defined by one of those two categories. Just wondering if any empath had found a combination, or if for us, the direct distinction is universal?
Well, I was trying to say that I have found that person who I am passionate about and who is healthy for me. I was trying to say that there is no perfect person but it is possible to have a combination of both head and heart love for someone. My person is my twin flame/soul mate. They are an empath as well
, I believe all mental illness is caused by trauma, which is the result of abuse from people and things in our environment. I truly believe if people were kinder to each other and more supportive, especially to children, because that is when it all starts, then there would be much less problems, especially health related, in this world. I see a big problem in this world with abuse in families and passing it on through generations when one doesn't heal from it
Other than making peace with your past and forgiving people, the way to tell what your karma is is through self-awareness of your character weaknesses (things you can improve upon to be a better person), which can be reflected to you from your life, and negative patterns that you notice in your life, such as in your relationships, jobs, etc.
When things settle down a lot and you feel a sense of peace, both inside and in your life the majority of the time, and you've forgiven everyone from your past and made peace with everything from your past, and your life is how you'd like it or at least heading in that direction, you'll know that life will be pretty much smooth sailing from here on out Of course, life will always have changes and minor challenges, but you will have the confidence and the faith to overcome it
@calmidwester..If you and I lived close to each other we would probably be fast friends....and maybe get into a bit of trouble together? Lol! I appreciate your input...I think that their probably aren't any happy AND healthy relationships. If there are, they are rare it appears. I don't want to have to choose one or the other...my heart or my head...that is not the romance I have pictured in my head since I was a little girl....sigh
, I think one reaches an age or maturity level where they are tired of the exciting yet dysfunctional relationships and finds a person who is good for them who they can be happy with. is right that there is no perfect relationship. We must keep searching until we find that someone who surpasses the rest but who we're willing to accept, flaws and all, because we know we won't find someone better (who is both a combination of passionate and right for us). There is always going to be a slight feeling of settling, because no one is perfect. It depends on what we are willing to risk before we make our decision on a life partner.
As empaths we know we can raise our vibration to the point where we make people around us feel realy good (and in some cases we can even heal them with our high vibration skills). But the challenge for me, as I suspect it is for most empths, is that life gets in the way and brings me down. I pick up bad stuff from other people most days that drains me. But I also have a job that can be pretty stressful at times. And that combined with what I already take in as an empath can at times make me edgy, irritable, and depressed/withdrawn.
I've gotten pretty good at grounding and have found a lot of help with protections stones to limit what I take in each day. But every few weeks I hit a point of overload where I'm really overloaded and heavy from my own stress and what I take in from others. It actually usually happens where I go a few days without grounding due to my busy schedule. My vibration is low and even when I try my best not to bring it home to my family, they feel it. Its kind of like when someone in a bad mood walks in the room.
I've only been aware that I am an empath for about a year and a half so before I knew that and found out about grounding I felt like I was losing my mind with all the daily anxiety and crazy mood swings that I would pick up just walking around my house or office. Back then I was just so agitated all the time that I had a short fuse. Thankfully now I am so much better at managing all of his. But its not easy and I do have my off days.
, I feel strongly too and so my mood swings are greater than most (the non-empaths?). I can relate to being a high vibration at times but also a low vibration when life gets me down. It's partly because of my empath nature and also my sensitivity...a double whammy. But I would rather feel deeply than to be numb. After all, to be human is to feel. And so what if I'm more sensitive than others? There are benefits to high sensitivity and those can be known as gifts. So as high as I go with my moods sometimes, I can go just as low, and I sense how this affects others...especially my empath boyfriend. Sometimes we don't know who is feeling what, lol!
We are only crazy if we think we are. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks! We don't have to surrender to others' opinions.
I agree. Mental illness is for people who see and experience more than the "normal" majority. That means we're gifted, not crazy! Just because someone else doesn't see it doesn't mean it's not real. Believe in yourself and trust yourself.
Thank you for your response. I appreciate your thoughts and help with concepts. As I mentioned in earlier posts; I am afraid I don't have the same faith as the others. I know there is a greater Power to create the magnificent and miraculous. I thought, before my experiences, that we all are just a giant Science Project. I felt when you die that's it. Game Over. I have to admit I'm still not quite there. It certainly has rocked my world.
I don't have a support group or circle of friends. My husband tried to be supportive but without evidence he gave up. We don't talk about it now. He still wants me to go to a Dr. I couldn't find a Ghost Dr., Oh well!
I don't want any other family members involved. It would just be upsetting and difficult for them.
I never was comfortable being around people in a social situation. Business networking, I was great. I founded a Charity for Children. Always in management positions, All board positions were always Community Service, I started my own company. I always had too much on my plate and loved it. That was until Fibromyalgia knocked on my door. I no longer had the strength to be everything to everyone. I have pulled away from the world quite a bit. Now that I am not totally absorbed in work and keeping the rest of the balls rolling; I can't bear to see what goes on in it. It's so pointless and superficial. It's driven to declare the one with the most toys a success.
I may not be all hearts and flowers because I am more a realist but I just can't turn my back on someone in need.
I guess your right about Psychic Awakening. One day it was just there. "Crash Course" I KNOW what I see is there and still at the same time my brain is screaming "Does Not Compute!"
I do write everything down. I guess by now you have figured I'm quite wordy. I can never find an end.....LOL
It sounds like you've been through a lot and through a big life change. It is okay. It is hard when we realize we can't hold up the world. We are sensitive beings and can't do it all. Plain and simple. Doing too much and stressing too much is what is killing people. The world needs to change and it starts with people like you who admit that you just can't do it all.
Sorry your husband can't relate to the things you wish to talk about, but it's good that you're writing it down and you have us here
Most empaths have social issues, like social anxiety, introvert nature, and more. No worries there.
It's great everything you accomplished. Now you can accomplish things on a different level. I highly recommend doing some research to quench your thirst for knowledge. I still suggest the Dolores Cannon books.
I understand what you mean that the world is superficial and pointless and all about acquiring things. But it doesn't have to be that way. We can each choose how to live our life. We can forget about the rest of the world and just focus on what's best for us.
I understand with being a realist. I need proof of things to believe them. I have proof of the Divine in my life, so I'm a believer. Not in the traditional sense of God though. I believe more that aliens are working for the Divine and are mostly what people sense when they see something that is not there. I believe they are orchestrating the universe! Though I also believe there are a few ghosts and spirit guides (ascended masters living in another dimension) existing out there but far fewer than aliens. But there are always things around us that not everyone can see.
Good luck to you. Keep writing.
I don't know what either of those are"
I guess I should feel like a Queen
Don't know if you recall my claim that the ceiling fan & webs were somehow connection and had their own agenda.
I'll try to tie this together with a quick recap.
The ceiling fan is either a leader or host. I can communicate with the fan (who or what) verbally. I can ask for modification in the actions / behavior of the webs and it will be corrected accordingly. The webs respond to hand signals. The webs form what I call beings. Ok I am getting a little ahead
The UFO beings are able to get into my mind when I allow it. They are using me to replicate looks and behaviors. I travel through their multi-level work station and i am studied. I complained to the fan/UFOS that they were not sharing knowledge with me. The next time I was treated like Royalty. I got the full tour and was allowed to see things clearly instead of veiled. It is still difficult to recall detail because of the speed.
I can make most anything move just by looking at it. It is actually the things greet me. Walls get wavy, bedding billows, The fan has petal shaped blades that wave around. The webs crawl across the ceiling and walls. Nothing actually moves.
I still see visitors (ghosts) but not too often.
Also, I am never sleeping or dreaming
The Divine is another word for God, the Source, the Creator. Your tribe is people like you who you are destined to meet, a group of friends or a support system you will have in the future. By being your authentic self and praying to meet them, they will start to appear in your life.
As for what you're experiencing, it sounds like a psychic awakening (there is a post about this in the Library of Light here). In other words, an awakening of your psychic abilities. I believe everyone has them but not everyone is open to them or uses them.
Hang in there and keep talking about and writing down your experiences. Eventually you will gain more understanding and clarity and peace of mind.
Love and light~
To answer your question, kinesis (short for telekinesis) is the moving of objects with one's mind. Yes, other people would be able to see the objects move too. I had moments of intense emotion where I noticed objects near me moving on their own. I am not experienced in this gift, but I've experienced it a couple of times.
I understand where you are right now. Know that you're not alone. There are people out there like you...you just haven't found them yet. Ask the Divine to get in touch with your tribe.
I believe in aliens and UFOs. They are very real. I think of aliens as higher beings or light beings. They are like us but more advanced. They can appear invisible or only visible to certain people. I wouldn't be afraid of them though. Most are positive beings that work for the galactic council, which controls all life in the universe. They are here to assist us, to guide us. They've taught us many of the things we know today, such as agriculture and technology. They are only here to help. If you feel you've been contacted by an alien, you should feel honored. They don't pay attention to everyone. They follow/watch certain people who they feel are on the right path. They may communicate with you telepathically.
You might be interested in reading Dolores Cannon's "The Three Waves of Volunteers and the New Earth." This and her subsequent books explain much of what is going on that most people are not informed about, because of the taboo nature. I have learned a lot and received a lot of comfort from reading her books.
I feel that I was born an empath and a wise soul. I started to notice I was different in kindergarten. When I was a teen going through puberty my gifts started to come out. Not sure what initiated them, other than struggling through the stress of adolescence, but at the time I thought something was wrong with me, so I went the medication route for many years. Now I'm at a comfortable point in my life and have found my soul mate and I'm pregnant, so I decided to go off the medication.
When I tried going off medication a couple years ago, I had a spiritual awakening through a psychic medium helping me to ground my energy. I felt enlightened after the experience. It was as if she cleared a blockage in me. That was a profound moment for me when I felt like my gifts were reignited in me after years of being over-medicated.
Months after, I had to go back on medication, due to stressful life events, but now I'm back off it and pregnant, so life is quite the rollercoaster for me right now In my first trimester, I felt very psychic. I saw things after I would wake up that are not of this world. I also saw sparks of light and shadows, which I had started seeing when I was a young teen, before I understood anything about the paranormal or being an empath.
Awakening is quite a journey and I've noticed periods where I feel normal and periods where I feel spiritual. So it comes and goes like an ebb and flow or a wave, but I can tell it's a gradual process of awakening and I'm enjoying the journey. It can't happen too quickly or I would be overwhelmed. I noticed that during periods when I was highly stressed and felt pressured (and off my meds) that I had more experiences, such as kinesis (moving objects) and sensing spirits.
I enjoy a more gradual awakening though, because it is easier to handle. The Divine is being gentle with me this time and I'm grateful I'm grateful to feel like I can still function in this world while having abilities
The only history in my family is my grandmother, who supposedly was diagnosed with schizophrenia at one time but never took medication for it. I believe she is actually gifted and I may have received some of her traits in my genes. But she doesn't see herself that way. She doesn't acknowledge it at all. I am the first known empath in my family. Part of the reason why I struggled for so long before realizing it
I think it's a combination of factors. It's possible your insecurities pushed people away so that someone didn't sit next to you. It's also possible it's just a coincidence that no one took that seat. Or they could be doing it to spite you for whatever reason. The thing is to not worry about it or let it bother you because that only creates more separation between you and others. People pick up on insecurity like they pick up on fear, empath or not. It's a rudimentary feeling that is related to survival, so many people can sense it.
I suggest working on self-acceptance and authenticity. That way, you'll be fully you and will attract those to your life who treasure and respect the real you. No sense in trying to keep around those who are not in the same vibration as the true you
As a side note, I am the black sheep in my family and have worked hard at accepting myself despite what others think and say and do. Being genuine and happy with yourself is the reward and most important to a happy life. It is well worth it. Don't worry about rubbing others the wrong way or being too much or different from others. Eventually your life will mirror you and you will be surrounded by the things and people that are best for you!
I'm so glad it helped you! Sometimes if we step out of our own way, everything falls into place Our perspective makes a huge difference in how we feel because our thoughts create our reality. That's why it's so important to think positive!
May you have a restful night tonight too~
Yes, as mentioned above, there are lots of supplements and lifestyle skills you can use for insomnia. But do you really want to become dependent on an outside source in order to sleep at night?
I want to add to the suggestions that not fretting about the lack of sleep and knowing that it will eventually pass is a good perspective to have, because anxiety over lack of sleep only makes it worse.
The fact is, with awakening (and being an empath is the first sign/stage of awakening), we are changing. Our diets should change as well as our sleep needs (less and lighter amounts of both). We are evolving to light beings and our frequency is increasing.
So I wouldn't get concerned if you don't get the typical amount of sleep at night that is recommended (everyone has different needs anyway). Your body no longer needs that amount. But also, don't fret over the less sleep either, because that will make it hard to get any sleep!
I believe the bigger problem is not the lack of sleep but the anxiety associated with it. The fact of the matter is, our bodies take care of themselves and are natural healers. So please don't worry but also don't exasperate the issue.
I'm going through some personal issues in my current relationship. First of all, I believe that empath abilities are more prominent/activated in those who have had unstable childhoods/lives and trauma. We are creatures of habit, so naturally we gravitate towards those types of situations/people. I am trying to find solace in my relationship that is a stable/healthy one. It can seem boring at times, compared to the chaos I'm used to, but I'm willing to see it through. I believe I can heal from my past so that I no longer desire an exciting (aka chaotic/haphazard) life. So I believe going for the nice guy/girl (especially another empath if possible) is the best choice
Regarding the alcoholic: that is a BIG red flag to stay away! IMO
I can relate. I'm a writer too. Writers call what you described as automatic writing, where you don't think much about what you write and it just flows from you. Like Bing said, it's coming from the universal source. Spiritual people call it channeling. It's a gift when source energy talks through you. That is the way people receive assistance on Earth..through other people who receive guidance to do so. You're an Earth Angel doing the Divine's will. Trust it. Also follow your gut in the actions you take and you will be fulfilling your life's purpose. Above all, just relax and enjoy the journey
Regarding your ear ache and highly spiritual feeling, don't fret. Just allow and accept. Some days I feel good and grounded. Others I feel like I'm in another dimension. It's okay to go through slight shifts. It's part of the ascension process, but it only happens a little at a time so that you're not overwhelmed
For me, it's the woods and the mountains. The air is so fresh and the trees are energizing and healing/clarifying. I live near the blue ridge mountains in VA, USA and I love it here! I love to hike trails. There is no better feeling than spending time among the trees!
You're right, CW. Being humble and grateful are important too. For me, also, I need to be appreciative...give thanks after receiving a blessing
Good topic. I manifest in my life simply through my thoughts and written word. Also, life knows me better than me, so it manifests for me, according to my needs and my true nature.
I think the best way to manifest good things in life is to work on being a good person, think positively, and be positive in encounters with others...to keep yourself open to opportunities
, I'm sure, since you feel it strongly, you'll meet your twin flame in this lifetime. Looking back, I see that my life was preparation for maturing, awakening, meeting mine, and starting a family. Every mistake and lesson was planned and destined to happen, as well as meeting him. Have faith, stay positive, work on what matters to you, and eventually you will cross paths when the moment is right. Often we have to grow into our best self before we will meet them.
That's right. Due to the Earth's wobble while orbiting, common astrology information is inaccurate.

I wanted to say that I've felt watched my whole life, as if I was in a movie. As I'm older, I feel my actions even more judged, as if the watchers are guiding people based on their actions, so every choice we make is essential to how our life will turn out, because they're not just affecting us, they're affecting others too, which indirectly affects us. It's like the human race is one big collective, we're all connected, and the watchers are helping us to fit in where we best fit and to learn from our choices. So it's essential to first figure out who you are and then what you want in life so that life will mirror to you what you represent. Hope that makes sense!
Yes, they're watching everyone but not everyone can sense them because not everyone is sensitive or an empath
The media portrays aliens in a negative light. Like I said, they're just like us, except more advanced. I think of them as light beings or higher beings. They are only here to assist as needed. They look over us and mean no harm. In fact, they help a lot. Most people are just not aware of it
I don't know if I believe anymore in spirit guides or angels, or if it's always been the aliens guiding us. They can communicate with us telepathically, if we're receptive, and can make themselves invisible, by raising their vibration. Essentially, we are becoming them by raising our vibration.
I'm glad you're enjoying The Three Waves so far. The beginning is about the three waves (aka generations) of volunteers coming to Earth at this time to assist. I'm part of the second wave. The second part of the book is about ETs. And the third part is about the New Earth. It's a long but good read, well worth it until the end
I just wanted to add that it could be aliens watching you. I suggest reading "The Three Waves of Volunteers and The New Earth" by Dolores Cannon.
But why would the aliens want to watch me?
Love Dolores Cannon's books! I'll try to get a copy of this one! :-)
Because they watch everyone...we're their children...they make sure we're healthy and advancing smoothly
Aliens are actually just advanced beings. They vibrate at such a high frequency, they don't need bodies. They're here to look after us. They fix us when there is something wrong. But they erase our memory of it, so we don't recall their visits.
Which Dolores Cannon books have you read? I'm currently reading "The Custodians"
