I have a friend, Evelyn, she is an 84 yr old medicine woman and is very good. She does travel to Edmonton (we are in Salmon Arm, BC) and various other places in Canada and sometimes other countries. She will also travel to an area if there are enough people interested in healings/teachings. She's seen it all!

Empath and single

I'm turning 60 this year and still waiting....On spiritualmatchmaking.com you can search for friends or mates for free.Maybe someone needs to start a dating website for Empaths & HSP's. :)

I believe we need to go with whatever works and it is better to develop our own individual ways. Good energy sent can be a god send and if it relieved your symptoms (which are extreme) you are definitly on the right track.I went through my own learning curve and had to realize I had ability and responsibility to help others. It would get to the point where I became deeply debilitated myself until I did 'prayers' for others in need....~*~...

If I may ask, how old are you and what area are you living at? Like anything there are good and bad healers or Shamans and this is a delicate situation so caution needs to be exercised. I once had a shaman try to steal my soul, and I've had Shamans do great healings and even save my Life....~*~...

Work vs. Private life


Empath

Hi Andrea, and Welcome! :)
I think maybe you are a HSP (highly sensitive person, it's an actual legitimate medical condition) and watching this might help you understand yourself and also help a partner be more compassionate/understanding.
http://youtu.be/FQLBnUBKggY
Our societal world is so unbalanced and we are thrown into it, sometimes with little choice, however, that does not mean it is healthy and, I believe, your psyche is telling you that you need to honor the beat of your own drum. You have to be clear on what your own 'healthy' consists of, not what society screams at us is a successful normal. Relax and believe in yourself. What would make you happy?
I would also like to say that a partner should be a blessing, not an energy drain.

Your description sounds like other ones that I have come across.As for why you are being shown, really you need to determine that. I think it could be very comforting for some people. Perhaps it is also to build your confidence and ease your perspective for being around others who will pass, including yourself at some point. I find that sometimes we are given info to 'build credit' with people so in the future they can accept other information from people like us....~*~...

Anybody ever sense an approaching death?


Empath

I've had this experience, knowing of an oncoming death, a number of times. First time was about 30 yrs ago. I was told in a dream, 5 months in advance, that my mother would pass and the exact date was shown in Roman numerals, don't know why. I also heard 'the sound of death' approaching, my horse alerted me to the oddity, (his eyes bulging, he nudged my arm and looked in the direction, every muscle taunt and ready to explode) which I didn't understand at the time, and then my dog was instantly killed by a car. 3 yrs ago, my father was taken to the hospital, for the 3rd time, and I knew he wouldn't be coming home ever again. I just asked upwards, what day he would pass and was given the exact date.
More in line with what you are saying...also about 3 yrs ago, I knew something was wrong, I didn't know what or who, but I knew it was bad. I told my son that something was up and it wasn't good and that I had a feeling it had to do with my friend, Jan. A couple days later, she phoned and told me her husband had had a massive heart attack and died on the spot.

Autism spectrum disorders and empathy connection?


Empath

Lotusfly, if you want to go there ...perhaps look at Synesthesia (also spelled synsthesia or synaesthesia; is a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway).These people can see sound, taste colour, taste and touch can be connected, etc.Scientists think it's a disorder and want to find a cure. I believe this is how humans are supposed to be, we've been dumbed down, altered, to not have our full potential. After all, we only use 5-10% of our brain....~*~...

Empath

Wow, that's very interesting StringBean.
That's very telling that it effects your emotions. (Not sure what it's telling but a homeopath would probably know.) I have a similar situation with chemical fragrances. It is all over the place now, what ever it is, and it effects my moods and health and brain function/speech and leads me to loosing my Will to Live, it effects me that strongly. I live on a couple of acres, as does my neighbour, but when she has the dryer going (using grape smelling dryer sheets) I have to go inside as I start to feel ill as it is that strongly perceived by me.
I consider myself like a canary in a coal mine.You should get a job as a mold sniffer for home inspectors! :)

RyuukoGo,I have numerous friends that are Empaths and have had hundreds, if not thousands of get togethers with one or more Empaths. There is far less likelihood of contention with a group of Empaths then probably any other group gathering. Empaths are scattered throughout society, they are everywhere successfully interacting amongst others.I am curious about your thinking/assumptions??What are you thinking is going to happen?...~*~...

Thought forms


Empath

I think all of it goes hand in hand.I can't say where one ability begins or ends.If one releases the unnecessary 'stuff' and ego stuff, many new possibilities fill that void. It does seem to be a double edged sword because our society is so wonky and living amongst it can be brutal for someone aware.Having a good support system is a HUGE Blessing!

I could say similar Lotusfly. Have had to dig deeper as no one was a sounding board or a soft place to fall.I'm noticing people just really want to be heard and acknowledged, it's not necessarily a solution that is needed, mostly. We just don't want to be alone through it....~*~...

Yes, that is correct Evolving. It is more then a feeling, I will receive their 'thought package', exactly what their mind was telling them. Sometimes I will also see the circumstances of their Life and how they came to that view also.Sometimes it will just be a thought that someone has as they look at a painting hanging on the wall as they walk past. Imprint is a good way to describe it....~*~...

Hi Evolving.I once heard a fellow say "the devil can only lie". I'm not religious, but that stuck with me. When I have thoughts revolving around in my head bashing me I stop and ask myself "is this true?" All the things that we may feel shame or guilt over can be very twisted. It has helped me tons to stop and examine the negativity that takes over.When I'm in a good place mentally/emotionally I search for a key phrase that I can pull out of my back pocket and help center myself for when those occasions arise....~*~...

Empath

It's a big topic, not sure if it is in alignment with this group to discuss this?? Commonly burning sweet grass (attracts good energy) or sage (repels bad energy) or cedar (does both). Important to get yourself cleansed because as long as you have fragments within your aura, it will keep attracting that energy. People rarely have any idea the interplay of energy and what goes on out there.Likewise, if you know someone with clean/pure power energy, their presences can dispel harmful energy. Kinda an osmosis thing....~*~...

Curious as to how many people feel thought forms that are left behind by people?I will give an example just to clarify.This past summer a service man came to fix the A/C. I had met Steve before, years ago, and knew he wasn't partial to me. After he had left I had gone downstairs and walked the route he had used journeying to the backyard. He couldn't understand why people would be lazy and let things deteriorate and weeds, etc get so out of hand. (I rent a small acreage and have actually been fixing the place up lots, but that is one area that I hadn't attended to)As I walked where he had had the thought, in the exact location, it flooded into me with his disgust for me and his total thought process.This happens quite a bit for me....~*~...

Trevor, for me, when you say: "followed quickly by grounding, shielding and protection techniques" already speaks of intention/agenda and if I don't want to participate in those behaviours then I probably will be viewed as anti social or somehow unaligned.

I would say, just enjoy the learning curve. 20, 30, or 40 years later you will probably still be learning and things will keep changing, but as one matures it is easier to get a grip and know how to best navigate. Because we are all individuals there are no rules to go by, but help is available. There are many reasons why abilities come and go also....~*~....

Autism spectrum disorders and empathy connection?


Empath

Mamooth, I'm not one that is big into labels, but I come from a family of intellectually gifted ppl. My son was in a class for gifted kids and autism walks side by side with those gifties as far as I'm concerned; you'd understand if you saw the kids in the class. If you haven't heard of HSP (highly sensitive ppl) I would recommend checking it out. They have an awful lot of similarities to Empaths. 20% of the population is HSP and it is equally split between the sexes. They have found that there is something different with their brains, they have short iliads in the insula in the brain causing greater perception/awareness. Empaths have been around for forever, so I don't think toxins would be part of the equation.

Am I am empath


Empath

Hi Jasmine,For myself (and it took me 2 decades to figure this out) that when I sank down into a hole for days due to someone not being well in some way, it meant I was supposed to pray for them, send loving thoughts/healing energy.....to picture them happy & healthy. My own process (visualizing) was to mentally go into their body and look around until I found a spot that needed fixing and my intuition guided me from there. It would relieve things tremendously for me! It took me a very long time to realize I had some power in the situation and I was meant to aid.Don't know if this will be helpful to you, but it made a huge difference in my Life....~*~...

emotional roller coaster


Empath

Nicke, it is very individual as to what will work best for you. I think the first step is to realize this is something that is seriously part of who you are. When we have a physical ailment we can accept our lives will have to change and accommodate the condition. Likewise, if a woman is pregnant, she will not jog her usual 5 miles per day in her 9th month. I believe we must take this same approach and identify your parameters and adjust accordingly. As we learn to handle the energies we cope better and better. If you can find a way to use your sensitivity to be helpful in some way, this too can make a difference in your level of relief.
You've come to the right place, lots of help & suggestions.

Illness and empathy


Empath

Alison, when I was assessed (for fibromyalgia) we were given info and the 95% (+/-) was part of the info given and discussed, but sorry, no, I didn't think to make note of the source. I know Trauma is very true for my young Life. The info came from a clinic that specialized in pain and is mandatory if you wish to continue receiving pain medication. I would imagine one could find same on Internet.
I remember being shocked at the high percentage and questioned them about it, especially considering it was mainstream allopathic medicine.
As an example of caring too much, in past days I would have gone back to the clinic and gotten the info and shared it with you, and if I had all the time in the world, I would, but now I don't do these things. There is so much in my own Life that needs taking care of it is essential I fulfill MY needs before others as Life has proven to me others won't.

As for sucking the Life right out of you, look for what is draining you, even the thought of it makes you feel tired, and that will help point out source. Moving forward, action, is a huge step in recovering from CFS.

The mind really is in control of the show with our bodies. Considering every few years (7?) our cells are completely replaced. It's the old messages/patterns that are stuck within.

Illness and empathy


Empath

Alison, it has been proven (about 95% if memory serves me correctly) that those with fibromyalgia had trauma in early childhood. Because CFS is in the same family I think it is worth mentioning. I've had both labels and have been totally free of and had them reoccurring and it has lead me to numerous observations and conclusions which I won't get into.

The environment with your parents doesn't seem like a healthy environment for you to be in. I think, literally sucking the Life out of you. I believe you must now be fighting the forces of stagnation upon your body.

I can relate to your level of sensitivity and caring and it is true that most of the world doesn't have this level of focus, at least 80%.
I too had to learn to not take care of others the way I had done for decades and be self involved/selfish first. It's a hard lesson to learn late in Life.

This may help you understand some of your sensitivity levels:
http://youtu.be/FQLBnUBKggY
Elaine Aron on HSP (highly sensitive person). All 3 vids total about 50 min.
20% of the population are HSP, equally split amongst fe/male.
There is a physical diagnosis explaining this, HSP have shorter iliads in the insula/brain. Nature intended us to be problem solvers. We take in much more information, are much more aware then average ppl. This also causes us to become overstimulated and overwhelmed much faster then others.
