12/1/2016: energies in world...


Empath

My energy is higher and more positive today. The past two days I was very depressed and worried, so I'm glad for the reprieve :)

Maybe you're feeling a shift from the new moon. It makes a lot of people anxious, feeling like they've gotta make a change or do something.

Glad you had a life changing trip to AZ. Would love to hear about it!

Third Eye Opening Randomly


Empath

I see flashes of light, when my eyes are closed or in my peripheral vision, usually at night.

I don't usually hear things, but the other night I heard and felt a huge vibration in my left ear. It was so loud, my boyfriend could hear it coming from me too (though he has esp hearing...he's an empath too).

I don't get the third eye pressure often, but I have experienced it. No experience with faces.

I think it's all symptoms of us connecting with our true divine nature...our soul and God...and other realms.

Ok..I'm confused again


Empath

@Rene, Yeah, we're all the same...just the details are different :)

Wicca is all about respecting each other and mother nature. There is nothing bad about it. A very natural, nature-oriented religion.

@pieces-aquarius, The video clip was good. Especially liked how it connects Christianity and Egyptian religions and astrology. We have a lot of history...a lot more than what gets recognized :)

Anger...the taught emotion?


Empath

Hi Rene,

There's nothing wrong with anger if it's expressed well. This can take time if you're used to holding it in. I suggest letting it out a little at a time by explaining what's bothering you to the person who's making you angry. Like you said, there's a reason you get angry, and the trick is learning to express it assertively.

As far as your father, have you tried ignoring his calls? Have you told him to stay off your property? Have you threatened a restraining order? Some of these suggestions may seem "out there" but not for a narcissist. I can relate because my relationship with my father is similar. My lack of response eventually stopped him from contacting me, because even a narcissist can't stand to be ignored. I live far from him though. Other than a restraining order, I don't know how else you can keep him off your property.

And please don't be ashamed of your anger. It is a learning tool that signifies something needs to change. It is also a survival tool. And all Empaths experience the range (if not more) of human emotions, so no worries about posting about anything negative here, because life is not always a bowl of cherries ;)

Love and blessings~

Fake People and Empaths

I think "fake" people just haven't come into themselves yet. This takes a different amount of time for each person, depending on life circumstances. It's really not their fault. They're just trying to find their way like the rest of us.

New to this and if anyone can relate..


Empath

Hi Rock69th,

I can relate to a lot of what you said, especially dropping out of high school, sabotaging things to try something new, always needing to be in a relationship (or rather, feel better when so), uncomfortable shopping in public alone, knowing what people need, knowing who are good people or not, and more. Just know that you're not alone, and I'm glad you found someone to spend your life with. And congrats to you and your wife on your children!

Many blessings~

Are we deemed to Hell?


Empath

Visitor:

No, and I'm Catholic. I think some people experience a temporary hell during a near-death experience, but they've lived to talk about it, so obviously they weren't doomed forever. One such person said he had never been an evil person, but he'd been selfish and self-involved, never thinking of other people, and just living his life to have fun. It doesn't sound like Hitler, does it? But he got a wake-up call. I do not believe in Hell, but I do believe in Heaven, and I think life on earth is a kind of purgatory - not all bad, not all good, and very confusing. We're here to learn and teach, I think.

I agree. We're here to be students and teachers, because Earth is a school. We come here to learn and to help others. I personally believe it's for the purpose of clearing our karma, to reach peace and enlightenment.

discussion re: soul mates / new loves


Empath

Renee:
Lotusfly:

I heard my soul mate speaking to me, followed my intuition and travelled 1200 miles, and met him within 2 months. I believe if a person gets out of their own way, listens to their intuition, and follows the guidance, they will be led where they need to go, what they need to do, and to who they need in their life. :)


See this I get! Completely! I've come across so so many stories of the same, so I'm so happy to hear another! It brings so much hope ūüíē, and yes get out of your own way.... I have a lot of fears around being in that vulnerable state of loving another again due to past hurts, but I do feel I'm moving through those really well and can feel that I've torn down so many walls, so from that aspect I feel I'm ok to begin moving forward and seeking out.... My issue is, the guy I'm having problems with letting go of who I feel is "that one" ¬†(is also not the long term relationship that I actually let go of the emotional connection too really quickly, which is also why I don't understand why I'm stuck on this dude!!) I read somewhere that some want a soul mate where the chemistry is electric and the energy is constantly intense and your in complete disarray out of love and lust and yet the "one" is actually the one with whom you settle. The energy and chemistry can subside for a moment and you just feel like you've come home. With him it was both of those. When we began talking the chemistry flew, then when we met it subsided and it was like talking to an old friend, like we'd know each other for an eternity, like going home to that comfy bed and just allowing myself to relax and settle in and know I was safe... HOWEVER I do think that even if that is the case we are not meant to be together in this lifetime and that's ok. I kind of feel like it was a bit of a "hey remember me, don't forget where your heading" and I'm ok with that. If I'm wrong then someone else will come along and all will be well, and if I'm right that explanation gives me enough comfort to move on knowing that any other relationships can and will be just as significant as I do believe we are destined to cross paths will all that we do for so many different reasons... However... Back to the post. So you prior to meeting your mate, did you feel their presence? Like they were close by and you were already connected? That's what I'm feeling. It's like they are already there, so now I'm looking, I'm scouting potentials, but all I see is those who are off limits haha I don't feel a need to go excessively overboard with "searching" I feel like if they are meant to be around me we will cross paths by going about our normal routines... But where oh where!!!!!!¬†

Yes, it felt like he was right there with me and we were communicating telepathically. It was so comforting! Then, when we did meet, it was unexpected.

I think both of your energies will draw you to each other when you least expect it. It's good to keep an eye out, but don't try too hard. Soul mates are receptive to one another, so it will be hard to resist each other after you meet. I suggest going about your daily life and follow the synchronocities to where they lead you. Enjoy! :)

The Space Between: one situation has ended and another has not commenced "Bardo"


Empath

Thanks for sharing all of this, Jen. I think when someone goes from having a very full, purposeful life to having it taken from them and having more time on their hands, having a lack of motivation and low energy is normal. I agree, it appears you are at an interim in your life. You are between places, a resting/gathering phase in your life. This is okay. Though it is enough to drive a normally productive person insane. No worries though. You will get through it and will likely be happier than before. These down times are necessary for regrouping and for the universe to realign your next purpose. It is there, or rather, will be there, it's just in the planning phase, and even the universe takes time to manifest on the physical realm :)

Help finding my path


Empath

Hi Mommy4,

With bipolar, or any mental illness, it can be confusing what the gifts are. I suggest to work on healing your symptoms so that it will be clearer to you. The reason it's hard to separate illness from gift is because the trauma a person experienced (all mental illness is a result of trauma) clouds/distorts a person's perspective. But it can clear, and that is through healing the past.

But you definitely have gifts, it appears. It's harder to see them than someone who lived a supportive upbringing, because the person may question themselves, due to lack of confidence/self-assurance, but it does not change the fact that you are special.

Study/practice that in which you enjoy for the pure fact that you enjoy it, not that it brings results. Obviously you enjoy your pursuits, because your fiance noticed you were different when you weren't partaking in them. So they help you. I can imagine it would help a mother of 4 to have her own interests outside of motherhood :)

All the best~

Stress


Empath

I get stressed easily, being highly sensitive and having had several nervous breakdowns...my tolerance to stress is just not what it used to be.

We can have stress or anxiety for several reasons. Maybe your concern about the new person in your life is causing you stress, and if you offered them some help, it might ease your tension.

Otherwise, meditate and see where the stressors are coming from. Also do relaxing techniques every day, like taking a hot shower or bath, burning candles and/or incense, relaxing to a good book or movie, or simply writing about it, like you've done above.

Depending on many internal and external factors, our stress levels fluctuate. Pay attention to yourself and your needs and you should safely ride the wave :)

Renee:
Lotusfly:

I have this intense fear of making the same mistakes and ending up alone. I'm with a great guy but he's so much older than me that I question if he's *the one* for me. I'm afraid to be alone. I feel as though I've lost all my friends and supports and I'm hundreds of miles from any blood family. I'm scared to feel alone. I feel more confident and assured when I have someone by my side. I don't know what to do... I love him as a friend. He's a great person. But I don't feel that he's the one for me. I'm just terrified of struggling in this world alone and not having a supportive person in my life. I'm afraid to let go and have no one be there and have to wait a long time to find someone who compares, or even worse, never find another. I'm scared to give up what I have for something worse (no one) in hopes that something better (than the current one) will come along, because what if he never does?

How do you know, when searching for Mr. (or Mrs.) right, if you've searched long enough? Is it better to take the chance for something better by giving up all you have? Or is it better to settle?


Im completely understanding this fear! Im with you on that and the whole questioning your ability to make the right decision, it is such a hard one! i hope your able to give yourself the time to sit with it a little, or if your able to even step away for a moment and see how you are feeling before making any huge decisions!!! much love and strength to you in this one. 

Thanks, Renee. It IS a hard decision whether to spend the rest of your life with someone. It's really a matter of weighing the pros and cons, and this person has very few cons, in my opinion! Decided he's a keeper :)

Predestinations versus Free Will


Empath

I think both. I think an outside force has their own idea of how life will go, but we have freewill, or rather, the ability to make choices and act on our behalf, but the outside force will exert their force as needed, most especially when we go too far off track and they aren't happy with our direction. But if they're happy with the new direction, they may not interfere. There is definitely an outside force and also freewill, and that is how they both can coexist at the same time :)

Are we deemed to Hell?


Empath

Rene, like you said, the Bible has been inscribed by people translating God's word (as well as further translations through languages). I believe that God's word evolves, along with people. In other words, as people change, so does God (and His opinion of us and the universe). We are not the only thing evolving. The whole universe is evolving, including God! He realizes that certain things that appeared bad thousands of years ago are actually not, including mediums, divination, etc. It depends on the person, not the label. I am sure that now He views them as generally okay. Everything is okay, depending on the vantage point. There is no good or bad, just growth toward higher spirituality and morality :)

God...the big question


Empath

It's so amazing to see all these different views on God, the Creator, spirit beings, and spirituality in general :) Thanks for sharing your viewpoints!

Personally, I see Earth as a school to learn lessons and advance in soul maturity. I believe in reincarnation because, like others have said, energy cannot be created nor destroyed (and because of near death accounts), and because we get the opportunity to learn from our past lifetimes.

I believe in karma, angels (especially that there is a guardian one assigned to everyone, because of my experience meeting mine), spirit guides (good ones...and we each have our own, along with our guardian angel, to assist us on Earth, like a team), spirit entities (good and bad ones, as well as the deceased), and the main One in charge, who I've known as God but I also call the Divine sometimes, because that is how I think of them.

I think of God as the universal energy that permeates the universe and all we know. I feel that He (I think of Him as masculine energy and Mother Earth as feminine energy) gives us freewill but also uses His freewill to affect things, as needed. He is loving and ultimate goodness, but unfortunately, we, humans, are not, which is why we need some guidance and lessons sometimes (or a lot of times) :)

I just don't know how God was before the universe was created, and where we are headed in our evolution (human and soul). Any ideas?

Kit Kat:

My advice is to never settle... Romantic relationships can seem so hard! I'm actually going through a rough time in this category too right now <3 you're not alone...

But I think that when we look at love in the terms of fear or settling that we are actually less likely to attract those that are right for us. I'll be the first to admit that it's extremely hard to let go of fear, but half the battle with finding the right person, I think, is to be able to be happy on our own.

It's so hard to be happy when feeling so lonely, but some of the things that have helped me are:

-pursuing my talents/dreams

-looking for ways to uplift people around me (as empaths we are given such great gifts for doing this!) 

-getting plenty of sunlight and social interaction with good-hearted people

Good advice, Kit Kat. For me, or someone with high expectations for Mr. Right (which translates into Mr. Perfect or Mr. Not Right for Me), the search can be endless. I've found a Mr. Near Perfect for Me who I do love and care about a lot, so I don't believe I'm settling...just getting used to commitment :)

Thanks and kindest blessings to you! :)

TigerLily:

Lotus, I can relate to everything you just wrote.   When you met the one, you will just know.  I never understood this until last year, when he walked into the bar it was love at first and it felt like coming home.  Needless to say I was devastated nothing more came out of it and he's now moved halfway cross country.  I have no idea if him and I will ever reconnect and live happily ever after, but he will message me back if I message him.  I don't because it's painful.  But this new guy I'm seeing is completely great and I just want to enjoy time with him.  I think you shold do the same.  When the one comes you will just "know"

Hi Tigerlily, maybe just maybe the one you met briefly who moved far away was someone you thought was perfect for you but maybe it wasn't mutual or at least not meant to be. But also the two of you could meet once again in the future and maybe you're just not meant to be together right now... I think it's wise to spend time with the one who is near you, because clearly he wants to be with you :) Like the song goes, "love the one you're with..."

I understand how you feel. It's not all feelings and sparks, we have decisions to make when it comes to relationships. I've been married twice and neither is my sons dad, I've put myself through the ringer and have learned a lot, not that i put it to use, i currently really like a guy who is so not good for me... sigh. I like another guy who would totally be my soul mate but he's not ready for a relationship so... what to do... my heart gets mixed up with my feelings and my intuition gets left in the dark with my logic. Maybe i don't learn ha ha ha. I guess if you have someone who treats you right and you can communicate and respect each other.... can't hope for better than that.

Thanks so much for sharing your similar feelings and wisdom, Nikki. I agree, and I truly hope you find the one who's right for you. Sometimes they aren't who we want but who we need. :)

LaoG:

If you are scared to be alone and you want to feel supported and with someone, then you might end up doing something like draining your SO. Or not reciprocating support/love which will make them feel betrayed/insecure in the worst case. 

Also, "I'm scared to give up what I have for something worse (no one) in hopes that something better (than the current one) will come along, because what if he never does?" <--- this that you typed gave me the impression that you do not love this friend you have just being honest because. If you are not ready to be devoted to them you should not think that they are an option 2 first of all it seems very disloyal to me it seems like you are saying he is just better than nothing.

In the worst case if you do "settle" you will be tempted to betray your friend if this "one" shows up and then possibly do so and rationalize it. Your friend is your friend for a reason right. If he read this he would probably feel insulted but maybe not idk him. 

I have seen this before, a person will try to be in a relationship with someone they have platonic feelings for only, and then they are tempted to cheat or dump them and waste their time. Relationships are not about fulfilling a personal fantasy of the one in my opinion, they can be very grotesque and dark but also beautiful and the key is the will to suffer and love with someone continuously rather than to desire support. Parents are for support.

Your comment is quite harsh, LaoG. Couples support one another, not just parents. 

You are right that there are dark elements to relationships. This person is my twin flame, which is why I have conflicting feelings with him sometimes, and we are working out the dark spots and healing together. The day I wrote my original post, I was questioning our relationship, which everyone does sometimes. I was showing my vulnerability by being completely honest in the moment, and you attacked at face value. Not very empathic of you.

My partner is my therapist, guru, lover, and best friend all rolled into one. We are now also expecting a child. I am very happy to be with him.

Thanks for taking your time to respond.

God...the big question


Empath

Nikki3:

I used to have a pretty solid belief in God and an orchestrated plan. The my nephew was killed in an accident and i lost all faith in anything but life and death. I'm starting to see things differently now that I've been reading on empath gifts. I've always believed in the spirit world to some extent, except for the last 6 years i mourned the passing of my nephew, his passing was very traumatizing for me. I also believe in the power of our minds and most people can't even fathom what our minds are capable of. I'm currently reforming what i believe bit by bit starting with empathic abilities and building as i see evidence to build. Your questions are my questions, i can't answer any but i can say they are great questions. 

Nikki, life can certainly change us and our beliefs. I can see where you're coming from and how you could lose all hope because of what happened to your nephew (God rest his soul). I'm glad you allowed yourself time to heal and that you are now starting to reevaluate your beliefs. It's good to always be seeking improvement and answers :)

God...the big question


Empath

Being empaths, we feel more than the ordinary person. My questions for you are...do you feel a part of a larger whole? Do you feel something "orchestrating" the universe? If so, do you believe in God (a higher being)?

My answer is yes to the above questions. However, I can't tell what exactly God is and if there really are other beings (metaphysical and/or extraterrestrial) around us, and/or other dimensions or timelines.

For example, are there really angels and spirit guides, or do we simply want to believe there are, so our brains manifest them (the same with the concept of other dimensions or timelines)?

I also don't know if my life (or any of ours) is a miracle or planned? Furthermore, does God (the higher being orchestrating us) have a plan for us, or are we an experiment and He's simply seeing how we do while also guiding us?

Just some food for thought for anyone who wishes to discuss their thoughts and viewpoints :)

Nocturne's Angel:

I'd recommend finding ways to boost your own self esteem.

You might want to take self esteem building courses, affirmations, etc. so that you can learn how to be happy & feel complete within yourself so that you don't feel the need and/or desire to always have someone with you, around you, etc.  this way when you finally do find someone you like & wish to build a relationship with, it will be for the right reasons & not because you feel alone, lonely, incomplete, etc.

Best wishes to you <3

I see your point, but actually my self-esteem is good :) I've just been through a lot and can't survive financially on my own, and since meeting this man, who I believe I know from a past life, my health and outlook has improved. I spend time alone (I'm an introvert and enjoy my own company :) ), but being a team with this person feels great and I'm much better when my physical life is stable and secure. But, truly, thank you for your advice! I will "store" it, and it may help someone else too :)

I wish I had some words of wisdom for you , your such a sweet soul.   I wish I could tell you, yes, there is a fairy tale prince waiting on you out there but my life has been nothing close to a fairy tall.  When I was younger, the guys that matched my energy always turned out to be more than I can handle, the ones will a lower energy level turned out..boring and I know that's not nice for me to say.  No, I never met that one person that would dance in the rain with me.  I never met that one that understood my uncontrollable laughter.  I do believe in true, once in a lifetime kind of  love but I'm very independent and need my room to breath and some people don't get that.  That don't know how to hold on loosely.   If you give up what you have to case a dream, you may always be looking but if you settle with safety , you will always be wondering ..what if....I don't know if there is a perfect match for anyone.  I think it's a question of, is this enough for me to be happy.    Can I do this without regrets of what possibly could of been.  

Thank you, Rene! You are so right...it's a risk I have to take: either stay and wonder or leave and be forever searching for perfection. The problem is I have high expectations and get down on myself even, so I think I am expecting for the perfect match, which doesn't exist, because no one is perfect! 

I've looked long enough...I'm 35 and I want to have a family. He is the best one I've met by far, so I'm going to stick with him and try to make it work, rather than run, like I've done in the past. Stability, family, and someone who loves and supports me unconditionally ranks high for me at this point in my life. 

Regarding independent, me too! It's okay to be that way and in a relationship. Just set boundaries and tell them when you need your space. The right one will understand :) I'm the same way. I like the closeness on my terms :)

Guardian Angel, Spirit Guide, and Totem


Psychic and Paranormal

When I was really depressed as a young teen and was crying myself to sleep one night, I had a vision of my guardian angel and could feel her presence comforting me and her message was, "everything's going to be alright." She had a porcelain face and long, straight blond hair, was petite, wearing a light blue and white dress, and was about 10 years old. She did not speak but gave her message telepathically. I did not get her name, just the feeling that she was my guardian angel.

However, now that I'm 35, lol, is my guardian angel still that 10-year-old girl? I believe they can change how they appear to us to suit our preferences. I haven't had a recent vision of my guardian angel, but I did get the name of my spirit guide (Jennifer), who is about my age with long brown hair (kind of a Native American vibe). I learned recently in a book on the paranormal that spirit guides are our connection to the other side and they help us through this life. We have a soul contract with them from before we were born, to help guide us in this life, since we don't know (after we're born) how our life is supposed to turn out.

My spirit animal totem is the owl. I'm quiet, wise, and like to observe from a distance. I'm very introverted but full of wisdom from life experiences. I love the quiet presence of the owl. I sat under one unexpectedly one day and looked up to see it. I was very amazed and felt very blessed to cross paths with my totem.

Soul Mate Search


Empath

I have this intense fear of making the same mistakes and ending up alone. I'm with a great guy but he's so much older than me that I question if he's *the one* for me. I'm afraid to be alone. I feel as though I've lost all my friends and supports and I'm hundreds of miles from any blood family. I'm scared to feel alone. I feel more confident and assured when I have someone by my side. I don't know what to do... I love him as a friend. He's a great person. But I don't feel that he's the one for me. I'm just terrified of struggling in this world alone and not having a supportive person in my life. I'm afraid to let go and have no one be there and have to wait a long time to find someone who compares, or even worse, never find another. I'm scared to give up what I have for something worse (no one) in hopes that something better (than the current one) will come along, because what if he never does?

How do you know, when searching for Mr. (or Mrs.) right, if you've searched long enough? Is it better to take the chance for something better by giving up all you have? Or is it better to settle?

Are you a Light Empath or a Dark Empath?


Empath

Goodenergyhealing:
Lotusfly:

I've been really feeling the abilities of the dark empath lately. It's as if I was born to spot the darkness in the world: the lies, bad intentions, uncommitted crimes, negative thoughts. My true essence is purely good, but I can't help but notice the dark. I was wondering today if it has anything to do with my father playing horror movies for me when I was really young. Or maybe just because I'm psychic and telepathic. I just know that the bad sticks out like a sore thumb to me and it's quite depressing. Wish it was the other way around and I only saw the good in the world.

Can anyone relate to this inner knowing about people, places, and events? And feeling like such a good person who easily spots the bad?


yes, it is rare that I feel I get positive energies empathically - it seems to mainly be negative ones. But then I decided years back that I want to be a spiritual healer - just did not expect it to be a 24/7 job (ok it is not 24hrs a day, but more than office hours :)) . I have also come to understand that energy is energy, it cannot disappear, only be transmuted. So running around with pink shades, and 'ignoring' bad things - will likely mostly only ever be temporary relief. For thorough long term and lasting healings, someone has to deal with the negative stuff... I (selfishly) trust that the energy spent on this today, will make my life easier in future....

Every negative energy that comes to me is sent into Light...

Thanks, Goodenergyhealing!

Empaths and Their Concept of Work


Empath

dproper:

Hello to all...

I do not post often, but I can give you all some insight as to why it is hard for us as Empaths to survive in the social cultures we are born into...

The Yang Yin of both the Spiritual and Physical realms are out of balance.  We all feel this.

All social cultures, follow a capitalistic system. Capitalism is a SOCIOPATHIC system. 

Humans are born Empaths and with free will. When indoctrinated by a sociopathic system, the majority of Empaths lose access to their Empath talents. In order for blocked human Empaths to regain their talents, they have to be retrained. That can only happen if the person is open to being an Empath. These are trained Empaths.

Natural Empaths cannot be indoctrinated into a sociopathic system... Trauma awakens us to our self awareness and our talents. Many Empaths are still driving blind to their Empath natures and are being further deadened to their Empath natures through drugs, alcohol and risky behavior patterns and addictions.

This is all natural Empaths struggle... That is why you all struggle with trying to survive in this human sociopathic world.  

In order to survive and prosper in this sociopathic world, you have to develop the behaviors of a sociopath...

May the Creators peace find you...

Dproper,

I agree that the "system" is corrupt and just badly organized. It makes us feel that we need more than we do, making us work harder and stress more, which leads to early death and an unhappy life. It needs to change :)

Blessings~

Empaths and Their Concept of Work


Empath

Lauren3:

Yes I 100% agree. I'm almost 18 and dropped out of college that I was doing really well in to become a vet, but it was so stressful to me and the outcome would of probably been amazing but it wouldn't of made me happy and I hated the idea of being told how to have my future. Now I'm working as a waitress and I'm really happy. Aslong as I'm earning a fair amount of money and I'm not stressing I'm fine 

Hi Lauren,

I changed my college major twice and have had a wide array of careers. One of my majors was Vet Tech, which would have actually been a hard career for an animal lover and needle hater. 

I'm so glad you're happy with your current job. A low stress job that is pleasant and enough to pay the bills seems like the best kind of job :) If you have time for hobbies and R&R too, even better!

Blessings~

I fear no one will take my concerns seriously...


Empath

Have you tried talking to your friend about what you've seen in him?

I can see things in people too, but often they don't want help, they want to help themselves when they're ready. But it's still good to mention it. You can also pray for them and/or send them good energy or ask the angels to watch over them. :)

I hope your friend feels better soon and that you are able to stop worrying about them.

Change of seasons


Empath

Spring is my favorite. Fall second. I dislike very high or very low temps. They are really uncomfortable. I go through a rebirth in the winter. I hibernate inside and do a lot of writing and self-improvement research and work. I believe it's when my depressing feelings come out the most and I'm able to work on them (because I have nothing else to do but face them). I don't particularly like snow because it's hard to deal with and drive in. Plus, it means it's really cold, which is uncomfortable for me and my body pains (can even be mentally distressing). But I'm enjoying the cooler temps now and I know winter doesn't last long, then my favorite season will be here before we know it :) Thanks for posting this topic and the link, rene.

Why you shouldn't shield yourself


Empath

Cbxjohn:

Lotusfly,

Just remember they prey on us when we are down and vulnerable. They can't stand it when we are happy, beaming, and truly ourselves. Trust me, they leave. Don't focus on what you are feeling or you give them power, focus instead on what makes you happy. I crank up my favorite music, or ride my motorcycle, things that bring me joy. Just be your best joyous self, the real you, it has worked amazing for me.

Thanks, John :)

Why you shouldn't shield yourself


Empath

Thanks, everyone, for your responses about dark entities and negative energies. I've been going through a depression that has no basis in fact (I don't see any major reason why I should be so unhappy, drained, in pain, etc), and I was wondering if these dark entities I sense are affecting me. I guess it's highly possible. I could also be picking up emotions from other people. But these are really dark sensations and I can only guess they come from an inhuman source. 

@Renee, yes, I was talking about dark entities outside myself that are affecting me (possibly giving me negative emotions for them to feed off of). No, I don't wish to fight them, unless I have to :) I just wish for some peace of mind. 

@nea, I believe I'm being targeted by the dark entities because I'm vulnerable and sensitive (and an empath). I already use crystals, stones, and smudging, but I suppose I should shield too as @goodenergyhealing suggests for a very good reason :)

SANDRA FERNANDEZ:
Lotusfly:     I did not have anyone who could confirm my gifts to me when I was a child. I simply felt different and then assumed there wasY something wrong with me. If I have a child someday, I will be sure this does not happen to them :)


@LOTUSFLY IT HAPPENED TO ME EXACTLY LIKE YOU,AND I HAVE A DAUGTHER WHO IS GIFTED TOO,SHE EVEN HAS SPIRITUAL GUIDES,AND I DONT,I HAVE ASKED THEM TO HELP ME,BUT AS WE ARE ATHEISTS,MAYBE IS MORE DIFFICULT FOR ME.....BUT WHAT AMAZES ME MORE ABOUT WHAT YOU WROTE,IS THAT YOU ALWAYS FELT DIFFERENT,AND I ALWAYS FELT THAT TOO.BUT I DIDNT KNOW WHY,UNTIL I WAS 44 YRS OLD Wink

Hi Sandra,

I found out when I was 34. Better late than never ;)

It's unfortunate to grow up in a dysfunctional family or with one who is unsupportive or simply unknowing, but that's all in the past now. I hope you can come to terms with it and that you and your daughter can find serenity and happiness :)

Question about the dark entities...Can they drain a person and increase their negative emotions? In addition to fatigue and a bad mood, can they create physical pain too? This is how I've been feeling lately.

Also, can they be seen in waking hours? If so, what do they look like or come across as? In addition to sparks of white light, I also see dark sparks in my peripheral vision and was wondering if the dark ones were spirits or dark entities?

Thanks!

Feelings of hate


Empath

I'm going through a period of irritation and negativity myself. I'm noticing everything negative in life (rather than the positive) and my mood is swinging all over the place (mostly down). I'm thinking, because my life is fairly stable and I am (or rather, should be) happy, based on my current circumstances, I'm releasing past negative emotions that were repressed (aka healing through release, in order to transform into a more positive being in line with my new life).

Is your life relatively good, so there isn't a basis for your negativity? If so, you may be going through a release as well (past issues coming up). Otherwise, look at your life and yourself and see what could be different (what can change) so that you will feel less distaste for the things in your life :)
