I have felt this way before sometimes it is precognition and sometimes it is cellular memory for me. By Cellular memory I mean I remember past events of loss or tradgedy on a cellular level before my mind remembers. Check the date did something happen this time last year or a few years back? I always say the heart remembers what the mind works hard to forget. For me the ache or anxiousness leaves once I acknowledge what the loss was. As for precognition that is a lil frightening to me because it has occurred a few times but in my experience the bad thing that happens is not permanent and your precognition is to prepare you that you are strong enough to get through what is to come. Love yourself well, take time to meditate, practice breathing, yoga, and mantras. The source of your discomfort will reveal itself soon or dissipate when you come into awareness of what's causing it.
I would imagine you are talking about narcissts. Narcissts can be very alluring and attract empaths but with time an empath will feel the narcissts true intent and true negative energy. I have been sucked in by a few narcissts in my lifetime. Initial meetings fine sometimes I didn't notice for quite sometime, well I would have feelings but ignored them. Eventually my interactions would cause headaches or nausea. Try to be more aware and present when you meet new people. Pay attention to how you feel after you spend time with them and if there is any doubt that comes up. Be cautious, narcissts will seek out empaths to stroke their ego, do things for them, build them up while they discreetly tear you down.
Random emotions that run rampant
At times of great grief I have experienced something similar. Acknowledge your pain at losing your grandmother whom it seems was a mother to you. Journal, cry, spend time in nature. Try wearing Rose quartz or sleeping with it in your pillowcase it helps heal matters of the heart. Mantras may help as well. Remind yourself you are ok , you are safe, this pain is from the loss of someone you loved dearly ( anger ) is repressed pain. Great love , great grief. I hope this helps. In loving light
More of a curse then a gift. Any advice?
First let me start my sending you so much love and light . I too have had moments where I felt the curse part of being an empath but I learned to look within , listen and find what helps me. It sounds like your heart chakra is wide open I would start with some grounding. What has worked for me is grounding , chakra cleansing or clearing, sage, a nightly soak in a hot bath , and crystals. I recently purchased a black agate and smoky Quartz piece that has really helped me. There are many things you can do but the number one thing is self love. Love yourself for who you are, you are unique and wonderful. You have a gift. Be proud. Set limits and boundaries in your life and understand that doing so is a good thing for everyone you love. Reclaim your life. Try starting with a mantra to repeat through out the day. I have used " I'm willing to see this situation differently " and " I'm going to love myself through this." I also use the technique of reminding myself that the issue I am exposed to or negative energy is not mine. I wish them well but I do not have to take on their problem. I wish you all the best in your awakening as an empath and I hope this was helpful.
I have experienced people pulling away as well. I've learned not to take it personal. The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruoz may help to read if haven't already. Basically it is about them not you so don't take it personal. Focus on self love.Try to understand it is hard for others to embrace change and your coming into realization is a change for them. Also I've noticed after I help someone or have an empathic experience with them they may pull away. In those moments they may have shared more than they wanted to and feel vulnerable, they may not be ready to accept the advice given or are blown away that I knew what I knew. By not taking it personal I'm able to give them time to comeback around on their own.I do agree it can be lonely but focus on self love and awareness of your abilities. I found this community in one of my moments of loneliness and I don't feel so alone when friends pull away anymore , most comeback but I send love and light to those who don't. Thank you for your honesty and question it helps me too. With love and light.
I am an elementary school teacher at an alternative school and an empath. There are days I come home physically and emotionally drained by the many varied needs of my students. I am the teacher the students feel comfortable working out there issues with , this can come in the form of physicality and rambunctiousness or verbally. It is hard to give each student what they need while also getting my own needs met. I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions of crystals to wear or mantras that have helped them to not feel so drained after dealing with a student that is flooded. I must continue teaching and day goes on after these big outbursts and moments of student dis regulation Any advice would be appreciated. I have been teaching for 22 years but just recently came into the awareness I am an empath two years ago . I have 14 plus years of working with students with special needs but during that time I had chronic migraines. I do not wish to go back to those days and my student population now includes several special needs children so any advice that can help me remain empathetic and open but safeguard myself. As well is appreciated. Thank you

Is there another approach to addressing people that I clearly discern their emotions?
I've learned to protect myself by wearing certain crystals like rose quartz and imagining a bubble surrounding and protecting me. I will also ask these people " do you want to know what I am feeling from you?" I go on to tell them you do not have to agree or say anything but every time they admit yes indeed that was what they were feeling. It is important to be grounded and to clear your energy after these encounters try taking a hot bath with sage wash away the negative energy you have accumulated. Much love
Anybody ever sense an approaching death?
Before I was aware I was an empath in a time I now realize was the beginning of my awakening , I dreamt of approaching my mothers death bed and although I did not see her face I knew it was her and her death was imminent. I felt compelled to go to therapy to resolve issues I had with her before her passing. In addition more recently I felt the grief of the impending loss of a loved one before the actual death occurred. I feel not only mine but the impending grief of others close to the person who will pass. Although at first thought this seems alarming and can be heavy on the heart o have learned how to handle it and it now comes with peace and a growing trust in the beauty of life after death here on earth.
