I'm a CHRISTIAN and I believe with all my heart in CHRIST and I have this Gift!


Empath

I too am a Christian and I feel being an empath is a gift. I am still learning but I know in my past I used my gift for good like in any situation. I reached out to the hurting. I am realizing any where you go there will be good and bad people, It's just what we do with it as an empath. God tells us to use our gifts for good and for the edifying of the body ( or church ). I saw people were not being ministered to so I started visiting older people and helping them. I too am learning how to protect myself more so I don't feel so overwhelmed. We can only change ourselves and I still need to practice stepping back and letting God do his job with other people!

Helpful ways to detoxify


Empath

Thank you! I shower with a salt scrub and that's usually enough but this time it hasn't been. Someone I was very close to just passed away on Thanksgiving from alcoholism. Someone at work who knows I'm an empath told me that I'm raw right now and that things might affect me more for awhile. I don't know how to grieve and not be overwhelmed by others emotions when I have so many of my own. I have been thinking about trying crystals. Maybe this is a warning that I need to!

Helpful ways to detoxify


Empath

I have only realized I am an empath for 4 years now and I'm still learning. I am a nurse and I work chemical dependency and psych. All weekend there was a patient that when I was around him I got overwhelming negative emotions from him. I felt it in the middle of my chest. He wasn't my patient but yesterday I had to go closer to him then I had all weekend. His negative emotions like just hit me in the chest harder than before. Way harder! When I got home I tried detoxing myself the way I usually do but it's not working and I don't know what to do! Help!
