More female empaths than male?


Empath

@shirley

I think it difficult for most of us to really open up about it. I relate it to opening up about your feelings romantic feelings to a crush. For me personally it's always been difficult to 'make the first move.' Once you open up about being gifted/empath you open a lot of doors. I think the older we get the more comfortable we become. I search for ways to be more open to because I want that connection. But it's difficult. To be honest I haven't ever really told my wife that I was an empath. And I think that she is an empath to. :) funny situation there.

I was born and raised in Denver Colorado. I now live in San Diego California. And have still have not met someone who is open about being an empath. I think once we learn how to be more vocal about it then we will find other like ourselves.

All of this sounds like a big learning lesson for me personally. It's actually bringing me a lot of joy forecasting my growth that I am going to be focusing on.

More female empaths than male?


Empath

I think it is mostly difficult for us males to announce we are sensitive to the world. It doesn't strike masculinity. If you look at many angels they have a very feminine look.
I'm a male empath and I tell very little people about my gift.

Asking for a reading please


Request a Reading

Hi Jodi :)

I get this big sense of a lot of empty hugs. When I say that I mean, you're hugging someone and you can tell they have their eyes open, kinda thing.
I see a lot of struggle and a lot of searching in your eyes. It's very hard for one to help another when one is not whole. Also it's hard to dig your self out of a hole, but it is possible.
Home. Home. Hmmm. Cant pin point this one but "Home" is really standing out to me. You'll have to let me know if that makes sense.

One last thing I'd like to leave you with is. You know what it is like to be an outsider. Maybe try to do all the things you would like. And remember it's okay to go out of your comfort zone.

I pray in Jesus Christ name that you find true salvation you are looking for. I will pray that positive energy and the light of god surrounds you and yiur family.

Raw Crystals


Tools for Empaths

It's funny you mention tumbled rose quartz. I literally crave that stone on a daily basis. Crave isn't even a good word it's more like I miss my rose quartz
. even if I have it in my pocket I feel like I want to spend time with it in meditation.

My son Axl is good. He's such a gift. I worry for him because I can tell he's already so sensitive to the energies around him. He's a very good baby And doesn't cry much, but I can see it in him. I connect so deeply with him it's been ver difficult for me to leave the house. I know I have to, but I just don't want to be away from my family :/

Raw Crystals


Tools for Empaths

I just had a few questions about raw crystals. I just bought some bulk raw Black Tourmaline and raw Chrysocolla. Has anyone else used raw crystals? Do they have the same feel/presence.

I'm fairly religious myself so I understand the conflict. My view is that religion is man made and it's okay to go against some of the church teachings and still be spiritual. I also believe that sometimes God shows us the way and we just don't see it very quickly if at all. If I hand over a crystal to a regular person it does nothing for them. But in the hands of an empath, crystals are like medicine. I think God gave this to us to help. I prayed to God for quite a while to help me get a grip on depression and anxiety. Not much came of my prayers initially, and then they were answered in an unexpected way. I suddenly discovered I was an empath. And then I found this website and got turned on to crystals that totally changed my life. I think you should reconsider trying them.

I think the Rose Quartz is good for you as it is spreads love to those around you and self-love for you and your insecurities. But it seems that you are soaking up to much negativity and need to get a handle on that. Most empaths love black tourmaline. But if you had a bad experience with that try black obsidian. And I think lapis tuzuli would be a good one for you as well. These crystals will help balance and ground you be absorbing and/or deflecting the negative that you take in as an empath day after day.

I also have some additional grounding tips for you that I'll private message you on.

I love how similar our situations have been. It makes me really appreciate and feel connected to the Empath Community. 

So I have been carrying my crystals around while I goto work and such. I took clear quarts and Kyanite. Let me tell you. If I had any doubt before that I was an empath I didnt after a day with those crystals. I know those two crystals are good for healing, but they are also very strong with connectivity. I picked up on everyone, person, pain, angels, god, love, etc. Overall beautiful day that I spent surrounded with positivity. Im going to find a shop here to get me some more crystals and really do my home work on cleansing and charging those types of crystals. 

Also I would appreciate to learn your methods of grounding!

Thank you for taking the time to help me. Praying to god that light and blessings come your way.

That sounds so similar to my situation. I love that about this community. 

Anyways yes I do and have worked with some crystals. Right now the only crystals that I have is Rose Quartz, Kyanite, and Clear Quartz. I used to have more such as, Apache tears and black tourmaline. I threw those ones into a river in Colorado, because I didn't like how they felt, and they lost their "touch" Now looking back I'm realizing (as I write this) they probably just needed to be cleansed.

The other issue that i have with crystals is I'm fairly religious and I feel like it conflicts with the idea of, "No other gods before me." I battle with this mentally. My thought is they are god created elements, but Im still cautious. Any insight on that? Overall I think I need to do my homework on crystals in general. 

I don't really know how to ground my self other than mediation. Do you have anyways that work for you while you are out and about?

Thank you for all your advice. I pray that you Light and God surrounds you. 


hey there    

I use to have the problem with  I don't want to do anything wrong in Gods eyes " so I strated asking him him the be with me while I walk this path and to guide me and if this was something o wasn't suppose to experience then to lead me away from it.   This helped me a lot   

I ground though meditation and also in nature.  Taking your shoes off, walking barefooted I'm grass or leaning or setting against trees or feeling of rocks I find   There is so many simple ways to ground    

I did not read that you have tried cutting the cords that is causing the negative thoughts.   You can do this by using meditation and ask the angels to cut the cords or you can have a healer help you cut them   These cords can cause many things in your life to go wrong.   It also disconnects you from the emotions from others that do not serve you like the thoughts of your wife talking to other guys    This coul be someone's else's emotions causing you to feel this way    

Grounding will helps me identify the truth instead of my emotions running wild    It's the intent you put into it and knowing "you are now grounded"  that's makes it work for you    

Hope that helps a little bit  

I have really started focusing on "cutting cords" this has been extremly therapeutic. Nature is a good way of grounding. Its like I know what to do, but forget how to do it, if that makes any sense. Ive been craving the beach for the past couple days, but haven't had time to go. I will make time this weekend! 

Thank you For your help. Im praying to God for light and blessings to come your way.

Hey everyone,
Recently I'm going through a lot of change and adjustments. Both physically and spiritually and need some ideas/tools to ease these adjustments.

Some background on my life. This year alone I got married, decided to habe a baby with my wife, got a DUI, lost my job and career path, moved from Denver Colorado to San Diego California.

Over all I'm very happy and loving 2016. But as the year comes to an end I'm starting to really feel the adjustments set in.

I've developed a bit of anxiety. I'm scared of dying mostly. I feel very out of touch with reality. Most days I feel as if I'm dreaming.
I'm having control issues over my emotions. I constantly think my wife is lying, doesn't love me, or is talking to men she shouldn't. I have no hard evidence any of this is going on and honestly I feel like I'm thinking irrationally and I know that's unhealthy.
Ok the flip side I've also had a lot of amazing "ups" with my spirituality. I'm connected with God, the angels, the world around me, and so on.

Typical out of sync empath looking for help.

Thank you all.

Lucky in Love?


Empath

Hey, 

So super funny. I was quickly scrolling through all of the different forums and conversations going, and i thought to my self, "why is no one asking about love relations?" Then I seen your post. 

Im drawn to this conversation, but Im mostly going to let my "gut" do the talking. 

Im really curious as to how much you love your self?

To me, and ill be honest. I didn't read you entire post very well. I did more of a detail skim. I know. Im sorry. Anyways to me it sounds like you put out a lot of love, you are aware of love, BUT are you really letting someone love you, or are you putting up a guard? 

Also I know that there are a few Archangels that are probably dying to help you. 

Ill be praying to God for blessings, light, and positivity to come your way

Getting through high school.


Empath

Hey there,

I hear you loud and clear. High school for me was terrible. I was so different, sensitive, emotional, and so on. I remember hiding in the bathroom, because i was already 20+ min late to my second period class, because I didn't want to go. Suffering in a high school bathroom was heaven compared to all of those eyes looking at me as I walk into class, with the title as the weird kid, and late as usual. So I hear you. and I feel for you. 

Reaching out and talking to groups such as the Empath community, family, close friends, is important. You need to communicate these deep feelings. Don't expect or assume what the out come of these conversations will be, just let them happen the way they are supposed too. One day when my mom took me to school, she knew something was wrong. I opened up to her and told her I hated it. I expected her to tell me to get over it. However she helped me come up with a solution. That solution was finding me an alternative high school. BEST CHOICE I've ever made. Reach out. Vent these negative emotion (in a healthy way) and lets find you some solutions. 

One thing I learned late in the game, after i got out of high school, was the Law of No. It sounds mediocere, but it works. The idea is when you pick up on someone, feel a spirit, or have an emotion of your own, of which is distracting or obstructing, You say, "NO." You are in control of what you feel. You get to choose what you want to feel. And it is okay to say "No"

I feel like all of your feelings are part of a bigger picture, so you'll have to do a little self exploration too. 

Ill be praying for blessings, light, and positivity, to come your way from God.

Anxiety, super sensitivity, high energy...oh my!


Empath

I find it helpful to just take a minute. Don't focus on stopping the feeling. Just breathe and recognize its there. A lot of times I think we have to feel these intense feelings. Our gift comes from a positive place. Therefore I believe we will be guided into positivity. Listen to what your feelings are telling you. Expose the feeling to effectively heal this suffering. Message me personally anytime if you need any kind of help. Sending positive vibes and light to you now!Austin

Joining EC is the best step to really tapping into your spirituality/gift. I find the more I progress I reach moments of unbelievable peace, and understanding, but sometimes it' can be overwhelming at times. Reach out to people here and people you are comfortable with. It really helps! Sending positive vibes to you!

Reincarnated pet? Has anyone ever had this happen?


Empath

I don't think I'm an animal empath, but i can relate to watching an animal look off into the distance with a sense of longing for something. My little dog does that from time to time and its absolutely heart breaking. I also have seen him cry which damn near brings me to tears.

Reincarnated pet? Has anyone ever had this happen?


Empath

I don't know if this necessarily applies, but maybe it will give you some guidance. About a year ago I kept having vivid dreams of this specific cat. They were always lucid dreams and i was always aware that i was dreaming. This went on for a couple of months. I couldn't figure out if it was a sign or some kind of guidance. Then i really started wanting a pet cat, which is very out of character for me. I love animals, but I'm not a great pet owner. I'm very busy and almost never home. I also never have really connected with animals. They don't hate me, but they also don't love me.

A short time after having these dreams my sister rescued a box of cats from the nail salon she goes to and gave me this specific black and white cat. I was mostly shocked that she would think I wanted this cat and thought it was weird she picked this specific one for me. I decided to keep him. Later as he started to grow up I realized this was the cat that I had all those dreams about. Turbo (my cat) absolutely loves me and we have a very strong connection. I can talk to him just as i would a human adult and he always seems to know what I'm feeling and is attentive to me.

Again I don't know if this helps, or what any of this means. Just figured I would share. If you have any insight on my experience let me know :)

Also sorry for your loss. I can only assume that was difficult for you.

Thanks

Austin

I need your guys advice please


Empath

I am super connected to my mom's pain, for the obvious reasons. Unfortunately my mom has a few medical issues including chronic pain. When I live with her as i am now i find it very hard to disconnect from her pain. I've learned two things help me. One as Bing said using your gift and trying to heal is very soothing for me. I think in a lot of ways i recognize its her pain not mine and am also using my gift for its intended purpose. I'm very uneducated about healing techniques so I can really help you there. Although i have found just trying it and following your "gut" works wonders. Its amazing how naturally our gift works. Second my mom recently shielded her self from me. Since then i haven't felt any of her pain and it has been very positive for me.

Let us know how everything goes!

Long Distance Relationships.


Empath

Thank you all. Every word helps. Pointing out that I have self confidence issues and control issues has been very enlightening. I plan to work on that for myself and my loved ones.

My Second question is the feeling I'm picking up on. Its like a negative pulling feeling at my chest and it throws off my usual mind set. I have had this feeling when leaving other people. I recently really started making a true connection to my older brother who lives in Arizona (I live in Colorado.) Mid summer last year we spent quality time together on vacation. Thats something we have never done in past. When we went our separate ways at the airport I felt this same "pulling" feeling. It lasted well over an hour and i could not shake it. I was even profusely crying during my flight. Again not a usual character trait for me. All this makes me feel like I'm feeling something I need to analyze and cope with, however i haven't gotten very far. Any ideas or leads on what this "pulling" feeling might be?

Thank you all again.

Long Distance Relationships.


Empath

The girl I am in love with is in the navy and stationed in San Deigo, I live in Colorado. When we are together it's amazing. Complete trust and deep connection. Although as soon as she leaves I get this terrible pulling feeling in my chest. Which makes me think it's a "gut feeling" that I can't trust her. I don't know how to find a cure or an answer. It absolutely drives me insane. Last time she was away I almost broke our relationship off because I was concerned with her cheating. I made terrible accusations. This is very out of character for me. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
