feel like I am not human


Empath

I'm not totally sure what you mean. I've always felt apart from most people most of the time. However, the times I've felt worst my body has had physical problems, namely anemia and later chronic infection that presented like asthma. During these times I felt absolutely awful. With anemia I was swamped by electromagnetic radiation, especially from fluorescent lights. In better physical health, now, I feel at home in my body, at least, even if not at home with many others around me :)

what is wrong with me??


Empath

The reason I ask is that if you're anything like me, you may have a habit of pointing out what's going on with people. A lot of people don't want to face the way they are, and they find it difficult to have it pointed out to them. Your kids grew up knowing they couldn't hide anything much from you, and they may now be hiding stuff from themselves.

I have that issue in reverse to an extent. I point out to my mum that she's being a hypochondriac, for example, and she doesn't want to hear it. She wants to believe she has medical conditions when in fact she is just obsessive/anxious. 

In general I think we as empaths reflect back too much to some people who don't want to face it. The reason I asked the question is that I wondered whether your kids have things about them they don't wan to face. If so, you can make ground quickly by simply asking "inane" questions or the like, like regular folk :) I think a lot of us don't bother with inane stuff because we think everyone is comfortable cutting to the truth, because it's obvious what the truth is (but that's to us, not to everyone).

So that's what I was wondering.

Do you mind me asking, what do other people say your kids are like? Are they decent people? Are they generally OK emotionally? Are they respectful of others? Are they busy and/or overly busy? Do they have good relationships?

Ick energy close up with a Narcissist (whose also sick)


Empath

I haven't felt much all along. Having said that, I do tend to tune out from the woman because there's no substance. Interactions are very superficial. During 2016, I had a run in with her and funnily enough afterward she tried to communicate more. She gets very nervous when I "study" her even briefly. At some level she knows I can sense what's in there.

Interesting, I suspect a lot of narcissists don't know why they act as they do. There's a lot of conditioning going on with them, usually harsh from very young.

Yeah, I think you're right that she may become a bit more tame but a nasty nature will lie underneath still.

Good point about my level of control over sensing others emotions. I'd never even thought about this but it could be right. I went through a period of really noticing others' emotions/states and then focusing inside to work out what was mine and what is others (we're all connected but you know what I mean of course). Then I started paying attention much less; and perhaps this was a good thing because I'd learned to separate. I find, as I'm sure others do, that the surest way to be affected by someone else's energy is to pay even more attention to it! So I've essentially learned and now I notice but I often intentionally minimize the focus on others.

Having said that, for certain people including my mother, I find it hard not to get "drowned" by the emotional state (for her it's often anxious/obsessive).

Back to the Narcissist, I deliberately tuned in a couple of times and felt anxiety in her. She is far more scared of me than she would care to admit. But mostly, I feel nothing and I think she mechanically tries to push other people's buttons and get reactions to observe them. I have largely shut off this avenue.

The more I reflect on it, the more I think that the Ickiness I felt was her own state--possibly a side effect of medication on top of imbalances. I spoke with a reader about the woman, who told me this Narcissist is very imbalanced and week on the left side of the body indicating the right brain (opposite) side is weak/unused. It was astounding because I realised in just about every picture, the woman (Narcissist) has a posture that is passive on the left side (left arm passive, leaning/stooped toward the left side). And she likes her pics.

So I'd say I was picking up on some illness with effects of medication.

But yeah it's possible I could pick it up further away if I paid attention huh?

Ick energy close up with a Narcissist (whose also sick)


Empath

Hey everyone,

I have to deal  with a Narcissist at work. A set of synchronicities along with some background information confirmed a few weeks ago that she's got Alzheimer's.

I have often wondered why for the most part I don't sense much energy from her. One time I did feel her trying to exert her will on me, and I have felt some anxiety. Usually, I don't get much.

Tonight, I was in a loud area and leaned close to her (something I'd rather not do), and felt an "icky" energy. I would guess it has to do with her illness, but perhaps also her nature.

I'm interested in any thoughts on why I felt this in close proximity but not further away. I suspect it's because part of my energy field was right inside hers where something is off. But really interested if anyone knows the likely reason. (Why can't I sense the same 'off' energy at a distance?).

Cheers, S

We as empaths need to unite together PLEASE READ and share your input


Empath

@cheshirecat I totally agree with you (and Bing). For me the most significant thing in your election (I'm in Aus) was the role of the intelligence community. If you haven't watched Pieczenik's message, I'd recommend doing so:https://www.youtube.com/watchv=ov5kvWSz5LM We have a big advantage as emphaths, which is the knowing. Having watched what was being leaked about the awful corruption, and knowing a lot of context, when I saw this video by Pieczenik I knew a couple of things immediately. First, it is essentially truthful and a section of the intelligence community had put out information because they knew the awful stuff was just too awful to tolerate. I also knew immediately, though, that Pieczenik was putting his own "spin" on things.

It took me a while to realize more than this, but things clicked.

First, people who are vile are selected into Politics because they can be controlled. It's classic secret society stuff.

Second, there will be dirt (not filth) on people in the intelligence community that makes it difficult for them to speak out. I know of a story of someone going into intelligence who had a virtual initiation (spilling on all his secrets).

Third, I think that consistent with the theme in this thread, there has been a raising awareness so that things reached a tipping point. The intelligence community has something on everyone--not just the people, but also those who control behind the scenes. I think they decided to take a stand despite the potential costs to themselves and possibly families.

I really do think there has been a sudden wave of things coming out in the open. It's been quite hard for me to face at times but I think it's for the best. I also think there's much more to come, and players behind the scenes who think they're immune are going to suddenly find out they're not. "Winds of Change" is absolutely right. I have it on my playlist, and when it comes on lately I have a smile on my face. It's no accident.

The winds of change have blown across the planet. Although the energy is at times tough to deal with, I am unshakably optimistic. I just sense things are going to change for the better. According to my guides, the timeline seems to be about one year, with some significant things earlier :)

We'll see.

"The future's in the air. I can feel it everywhere. Blowing with the wind of change".

Empaths can psychicly pick up words when there is a lot of emotional charge behind those words


Empath

Thanks that makes a lot of sense. This will happen at a distance too. I sometimes get a thought in mind and have a feeling it has to do with someone else I know. I reckon this is what's going on. I bet now if I tune into this, I'll start picking it up pretty quickly.

Anger...the taught emotion?


Empath

I agree with you about control and people wishing to control attention, which is energy.

On a suggestion, I've starting practicing my own form of Ho'oponopono. I use the four statements: "I love you (to Source), I'm sorry, Please forgive me, thanks.

I do so from a collective mind-frame. I usually focus on being sorry for unconscious/programmed responses and behaviours that don't serve humanity. I usually see  how as an individual, I "play into" the habits in some way. This doesn't mean I'm saying sorry for the fact that someone else tried to control and caused anger; I may for example be cognisant  that such people have often been subjected to controlling behaviour. I ask forgiveness for being unconscious too often of the habits that drive everyone (often in a quite insane way). With "thanks" I imagine the message being petitioned/sent to source. Before thanks, I often request that the situation is resolved in the best way possible given the constraints (on free will, karmic, etc) for the highest good.

I also often ask for guidance after doing this.

I find anger is the most difficult thing to break from to do this, of all things. It is not so difficult with, for example, unfortunate situations I'd rather not see others experiencing.

I do so, as seems to be generally advised, without any expectations of what will happen.

Yet as people say, I am often very pleasantly surprised at what does happen. This is not always the case, but it's not uncommon.

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


Empath

Hi @bunnigirl. Something was going on yesterday, and in fact the day before, for me. Mentally everything was just going too fast and I was distracted. I was majorly annoyed at a driver yesterday and, while he was driving stupidly, I'd normally have been mildly irritated.

Yeah, certainly I felt like there was something up with energy and not a good day. Got a right ear-ringing yesterday (tells me something significant coming up) and it's been a good day today (so far).

Thoughts on sensing versus stealing energy?


Empath

Hi,

I've only realised I was an empath since I joined this forum. And I got some funny comments. I'm a classic empath, it seems.

Now I'm working most on knowing when energy is mine versus someone else's. As I look around and learn I often come the notion of stealing energy from others.

I struggle a bit with this idea based on experience. If I can sense someone's energy there is obviously some kind of 'transfer' going on. Mostly I don't want to sense others' energy as the anxious/fearful/controlling energies are most intrusive to me. Experience seems to indicate there is just a general flow of energy, more from some people than others, and I'd go as far as to say that "my energy" is really more energy of the universe focused around me and flowing through in patterns (chakras and fields).

With more subtle energy and energy flow, I try to focus inward and outward to sense the energy from other people (and objects, especially crystals and orgonite).

So I'm really interested in what people think about stealing energy and if you think this really happens, what distinguishes sensing/feeling energy from stealing energy?

Also, what's going on with psychic attack? This seems kind of the opposite thing to me, where another human being imposes certain energy and/or thoughts and/or images etc. on another person.

Thanks in advance.

Anxiety, mine or yours?


Empath

Thanks for that. This is something I'm trying to learn. I'm really interested to hear you mention it starting with a thought or suggestion of negative thought. With control-freak types, I start having, let's say, uncomortable thoughts, and the more I focus on the person, the more anxiety I feel/sense. Of course, focusing away or inside helps, as does leaving the situation. Washing it through/away is worth trying.

I grew up with an anxious mother and have through adulthood thought of myself as an anxious person, especially after "having so-called social phobia". It's so funny to me to now realise that I don't have some mystical "anxiety disorder" but that I never learned what was my anxiety and what was others'. Then to some extent I created my own anxiety because I was used to picking up on others' anxiety in social situations! Confusing.

All gone now -- I speak publicly on a regular basis.

At the moment I'm trying to "deal with" feeling seriously weakened energy fields in people. I know they're not well. I feel for them, literally! I wish I could help them and I often have a strong sense for what would help them ... but of course people think you mad and might be upset. So what can ya do?

Thanks, very interesting.

Seeing lights


Empath

Thanks for your thoughts Kaitlyn. Yes I think her soul is very strong and someone in a crystal store said she can easily travel through many portals. I don't quite understand what she meant. Other people (and their souls!) on earth migrate toward her and she seems to take things on board for them--perhaps too much at times. Mind you, she doesn't seem too troubled by this.

My daughter doesn't seem to be an empath like me, or at least more weakly so. She senses energy from crystals and has a fascination with old objects, but she doesn't sense other's energies like I do generally. Perhaps she could learn to do so but it doesn't seem her default at this point.

Anyway I think that's sage advice for her to remember how she feels in that moment. It's also a good reminder for me to do the same. Sometimes I get a bit taken with the sparkles I see just visually, and forget to take a moment to reflect on what I feel/sense. However, for whatever reason, mine are always sparkles in single points. I didn't know what to tell my daughter when she described what she saw. My instinct is the same, it's still a visitor. And it may well have been positive because she wasn't the least perturbed by it--she just had to get past the initial surprise.

Thanks.

Birthmarks?


Empath

So funny, I've just been wondering about this and looking into it a bit. I saw something in which researchers said I think in around 30% of cases where someone had a birthmark and could remember details of previous lives, they found injuries matching the birthmarks. I don't know how many people were involved in the study though.

My son has a birthmark on his leg. I wonder whether it could reflect a severe burn in a previous life. My mum's a nurse and she also thinks it resembles a burn in form, though it is not a burn and is definitely a birth-mark.

Really interesting to see everyone's replies.

I agree. People do find me intimidating and they've told me so.

In my case I can understand as I am willing to confront issues head on and I do so. However I am pretty much always constructive (other than the odd occasion where anger interferes). So it still puzzles me. What everyone is saying is exactly what I think is going on. I see things in people--and what's more if I know them well enough, I tell them or at least say things that let them know that I know.

For example, someone was once going on about Freud and writing email and said: "never write an email when you're angry as you might give things away". I said: "Do you realize you just gave away the fact you don't like to give things away?" He was a bit stunned. I don't think it occurred to him other people, like a lot of us, are very open and know it's kind of pointless to be otherwise as there are others like us who can see or intuit what's going on anyway.

But yes, some people are intimidated by me despite me being honest and moral and understanding, often almost to a 'fault'.

Seeing lights


Empath

My daughter saw some interesting lights right in front of her. I'm wondering whether anyone has any thoughts on what it could be.

She says they were pale blue, forming erratic lines, right in front of her toward center of her vision. Sort of an 'electrical haze' from what I understand, though she said they didn't look like sparks or anything.

I see sparkles of light frequently, most commonly vivid purple, blue/purple, or pink. Some people seem to think this is 'angels' or guides. Certainly it feels that way when I pay attention.

But my daughter didn't see a sparkle. She said it was a surprise but she didn't notice either positive or negative feelings.

She wasn't feeling light-headed or anything like that. Just walking through her door and they appeared.

Personally I think it's definitely some kind of energy from something.

Thoughts?

Sudden anxiety wave -- what is it?


Empath

I'm a bit that way too, though it's more like discomfort than pain around the heart. Peridot and similar crystals right over the heart (pendant) ease it a lot for me. I could feel a 'release' straight away -- presumably the frequency of the crystals does something to energy patterns there.

Sudden anxiety wave -- what is it?


Empath

A lot of interesting food for thought there. I'm trying to recall the experience in light of what you say. Now I think back, it's possible that the odd 'charged' feeling in the heart chakra area came first then the anxiety after, which could be as a response to a wierd vibration/feeling as you say. The confusing thing is that it felt a bit like tightness in the chest that can accompany anxiety, though probably only "sort of". I was immediately thinking my son is freaking out because I felt what he felt around the chest on the previous occasion when he was freaking out (but fine). But I felt jittery for a while afterward that time. Yesterday, it came on quickly and passed just about as quickly.

There was definitely a ripple/wave through the outer part of my aura/field but again, I've had that with the onset of anxiety before. However, again when I think about it, there was an odd quality to it and, of course, maybe on previous occasions I didn't realise that this was a source of anxiety rather than a consequence, so to speak.

I didn't have any sensation of being touched though. In a house I lived in a long time ago, I felt touches in the shoulder and back almost every night going to sleep. I got the classic "chills" and goose-bumps in that house one evening, and had to get out and walk for 45 minutes. Yet most of the time it didn't feel like a negative presence. But no sensations this time, other I guess than in the heart region.

reading peoples negativity and social phobia HSP


Empath

Rene' I totally agree about sensing energy of good souls. In the past I've paid too much attention to negative and controlling people. Now I really try to focus on people with great energy. In one case I started mentioning all kinds of specific things relevant to the person and his child. He seemed to think I was a mind-reader and in some sense I guess that's true though it wasn't conscious. I just sensed a very positive, fluid and comfortable energy from this person. I know someone else who is inspiring and I actually think he reads minds because one day, I could almost sense what he was saying (from above me, if that makes any sense at all) and I could see him look at me almost as though he was thinking: wait on, can you hear me too?? One day this person noticed I'd finished a glass of water almost as soon as I did, and he offered more. He's in a very high position and very busy, yet very inspiring. Focus on positive not negative, I say! (And I'm doing more and more).

reading peoples negativity and social phobia HSP


Empath

I had difficulties with a very negative person last year. He'd fit the Borderline Personality profile in Psych. He emanates anxiety and anger and his energy can be very intrusive. I worked with him and had to change things so I could stop working with him. It took time and patience but I did it.

My experience is that the way to avoid negative energy affecting you is to try hard not to *pay attention* to the person.

To pay attention truly means, in effect, to extend the mind toward (attend) something to appease (pay). We do "pay" as we are giving energy, and energy is the fundamental "currency" of living beings. We are giving our energy when we pay attention. I think this fosters a stronger connection with the person, and opens ourselves to sensing energy and having energy taken/drained.

When it comes to negative people I ask myself: do they deserve my attention? If possible I keep away from them physically, and avoid thoughts directed toward them.

I'm not saying this is easy though. I am only so successful, but with practice I'm getting much better.

Best, S

Anyone with M.E. or Chronic fatigue syndrome?


Empath

I don't have M.E. or CFS. However I've had periods with awful health in the past but in recent times I've never felt better in my life. Downside of being the way we are is that we get symptoms. Upside for me, at least, is that I can use intuition and sensitivity to identify things that help.

Here are some things I've learned through extensive and intensive research guided by intuition, and things I've tried that really work for me.

1. During my worst periods there were definitive physical causes -- it's just that my symptoms don't fit with the supposed causes. I was anemic due to anti-inflammatories and I had a chronic lung infection with Chlamidophilia Pneumonia. Both caused me hell. In both cases I improved enormously once the cause was sorted out.

2. It goes with out saying, but living healthily I am so much better. I eat (roughly speaking) a paleo diet, almost entirely without processed food. I drink only filtered water. I get SUN (most people are vitamin D deficient). I think these things impact a lot on our bodies (not just physical) and capacity to deal with energies.

3. I get enough sleep. Sleep is so terribly important (but I know you may struggle to get quality sleep as I have in the past).

4. I take ORMUS. It is absolutely awesome. I've never slept so well as with ORMUS and I can feel it assists me to stay in a higher vibrational energy more often. However some who are on the psychic side have to have small amounts, note.

5. I have a Radial Appliance (this onehttp://www.cayceconcepts.com/RadialDevice.php ) invented by Edgar Cayce. It is absolutely remarkable for restoring energy when I am drained. Incredible. You can feel it work wonders with the energy field while meditating. Also good for quality sleep.

6. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy is amazing for energy, mood and pain. I have an "Earthpulse". There are cheaper ones out there and they can be made cheaply as they're simple. Search Schumann resonance if you're interested.

7. The Violet Ray is a very hand device. It probably gives energy and it can definitely help certain kinds of pain, particularly nerve-related (e.g. headache stemming from nervous in the spine).

8. Zeolite is great for ridding toxins, though I have to go lightly as I get some 'healing crisis/herxheimer' reaction with it, but that's a good sign. It's probably good for infections also.

In my humble opinion, CFS is likely to be caused by chronic infection. See Charles Stratton's articles available online regarding C.Pneumoniae. I can give a lot more information. What is happening is that the medical establishment virtually only recognises acute infection, when a lot of people have chronic infection--often multiple chronic infections. I have experienced mild(ish) chronic fatigue with my chronic infection, though 'asthmatic' symptoms were the primary symptom. I can tell you a lot more if you're interested but this post is already long.

In short, yes we suffer more but on the other hand we're best placed to heal ourselves, in my humble opinion. I have researched and intuitively known what will work, and almost always things I try do help. I got on a roll and I'm a different person now.

Best, S

Sudden anxiety wave -- what is it?


Empath

A couple of hours ago, I was meeting with someone and had a sudden wave of anxiety with a 'charged' feeling in the heart area. It came on strongly for a few seconds, subsided a bit, lingered for a couple of minutes, then I started feeling normal again fairly quickly.

Last time I had 'out of the blue' anxiety it turned out my son was very anxious at the time. He was absolutely fine but very anxious.

This time I can't find a cause in my family. I thought it might be the person I was meeting with but I watched her and she was clearly not the source. I guess it could be various other people. It certainly didn't feel like it was me -- no trigger, sudden onset and took me by surprise. It was like I was being engulfed in anxious energy with a strong focus in the heart region.

Any suggestions or thoughts would be much appreciated!

Steve

Kaolin, have you tried orgonite? I find it incredibly useful for dealing with negative energy. It's by no means a 'cure' for me but it seems to help clear and balance my own energy and assist me to deal with stuff. I tried it on myself before getting some for my daughter; now I like her to have it when she's at school. For emf if nothing else, but also for dealing with other negative energy.

Hi Kaolin,

I was honestly a little unsure exactly what you were asking in your first post, but I'm interested in the topic. I certainly hope I wasn't intrusive.

For others, not so much for you, the courts most certainly do consider things such as intentional infliction of emotional distress and financial abuse arising from such things as undue influence. However, as both you (Kaolin) and I said, it's tough proving someone has caused emotional distress unless there are 'outrageous' behaviors that can be proven etc.

I wasn't suggesting how to change anything, just making observations regarding this after you stated it would be exceptionally difficult ... you may well be right, and if the observations were not welcome, my apologies.

Orgonite


Empath

Who has experience with Orgonite and Orgone energy?

I have several pieces of Orgonite.

When I first bought an Orgonite pyramid, I could feel a very calm energy from it. It was strong at first then I adapted. With it, I felt immense energetic and mental clarity. It actually felt in our house as though we were suddenly in the country. So clear.

When I went to a shopping center I was far less overwhelmed.It doesn't shield others' energies but somehow it helps a lot. I suspect it allows me to focus on and sense specific things rather than myriad sources of energy coming at me. I don't know, but it is very helpful to me.

I have far less problems with electromagnetic fields. Electrical lights have a different quality, clearer and crisper, as though a smog has been cleared away.

Anyone else have Orgonite?

Nasty "dream/nightmatre" -- or attack?


Empath

All dreams are a form of communication with the spirit world? Interesting perspective.

I think as you say this "nightmare" is a form of attack by something. The good thing is that I seem to be able to see it for what is. I mean it could have some power over me or some genuine effect on me if I experienced it as "more real". However it seemed obviously a broadcast and simply realizing that takes away it's influence, I feel.

I wouldn't presume it would be exceptionally difficult to change the agreement even in the courts if you can document some reasons. When you say 'working' so far, this likely just means nobody has claimed there are serious issues. If you can document factual events that indicate issues in a fair and balanced way, you can always revisit such things. The difficulty might be documenting it if there are no 'objective' facts evidencing the issues.

Pain changing forms? Is this possible ?


Empath

Hell yeah, in my life I have felt intense grief as a very heavy feeling in the heart that verges on painful. There's a reason we say a person is 'in pain' when in grief, I guess. Not nice.

Nasty "dream/nightmatre" -- or attack?


Empath

Two nights ago I had multiple out-of-body experiences in one night and later a very nasty "dream/nightmare".

If you're squeamish etc. please don't read on. It played out for only 10 sec or so. My younger brother was in front of me, his arm was held awkwardly and he had a marking on his back. He looked in pain and something seemed off. I started looking at him and said "we need to get a doctor to look at him". A heavy-set man with black hair and a black beard came around the side of my brother. He said "we're doctors*" and proceeded (stop here if squeamish!) to slice his skin from ear to underneath the chin and yellow-green fluid came out. The "dream" stopped suddenly.

*Actually he said we're GPs, general practitioners, a term we us in Australia but I'm not sure about elsewhere.

I keep saying "dream/nightmare" because it had an odd quality to it, more like it was a movie clip of a scene running. I have the distinct feeling it was projected into my consciousness, rather than being my dream. There's just something not quite right about it.

Can anyone here suggest what could be going on?

I don't recall much about the out-of-body experiences at all. I only know I was having them and the tell-tale-sign over the years is that I fumble around trying to turn a light on without success and (after years of this happening) I quickly realize I'm not awake, then I wake up and actually turn the light on.

Cheers,

S

Empath with Children


Empath

Well my daughter looooves crystals and I encourage her obsession. I try to limit their exposure to TV/propaganda-machine, though only with so much success. Somehow they're just really grounded and balanced. I think I'm fortunate to have kids when I'm in a much better place. I used to be pretty uptight and angry all too often.

One of the biggest things I focus on with my kids is healthy body/energy. No processed food, getting outside, getting some SUN, minimal sugar. I would hate it if I had limited control over what the kids eat. Obviously they'll decide one day but for now I can heavily influence it.I also give them insights into people they know in subtle ways, especially people with negative energy. Of course they already know at some level but I think it helps them to be more aware.

Coincidence or not?


Empath

There are no random coincidences, imho. Especially in cases like this, the events are connected somehow. Question is: how? From your descriptions, it's hard to say.

Jung defined synchronicity as a meaningful coincidence. I think all coincidences have meaning, although sometimes the meaning is not great and most of the time it's not consciously recognized.

After Recharging?


Empath

OK I understand how you're using the term. I agree the beach is no place to take on energy. I go to the beach to cleans. I spend most of the time at least partially in the water. It's awesome for that. It can be a nice place to be also, especially with my dogs, but yeah I agree with you.

After Recharging?


Empath

I don't know what recharge is. Could you explain?

I can tell you that I always feel great after going to ocean, and being immersed in the water. I'm fortunate to live very close in a very sunny place. Very interesting topic. I feel strong emotions in some locations and tend to put it down to memories that are evoked. Perhaps there's more to it, at least some of the time. So interesting hearing from people here! I'm learning a lot. I'm usually the one explaining what's going on to people, but somehow I don't really exercise this capacity on myself nearly as much as I know I could.

Not sure if I am an empath


Empath

Visitor, it's interesting to hear you mention anger and absorption of others' feelings. During 2015 I dealt closely with someone in business who is clearly prone to anger. Although it's passive aggression, I knew it and it was confirmed by someone who knows the person that he had a severe temper when young (and he was still relatively young). Anyhow, I found myself angry a lot in the period I was dealing intensively with the person. I was becoming aware that emotion and energy affects me and I cut off the working relationship. I had to. It's so interesting to put all these pieces together. I know what I have to do, intuitively, much of the time; but I think I will gain ever more resolve with clarity.

Cheers, S (also a visitor!)

Feeling out of sorts around the time of a traumatic event


Empath

Hi Lastars,

Thanks very much. That makes a great deal of sense. I was definitely beside myself when it happened, though I had to keep focus to deal with the situation all the same.

Now that you point this out I think something else is going on. I can feel my daughter's energy is not quite right. She is still a little out of sorts. And of course, as someone at a crystal shop observed, we are connected--closely. So I am undoubtedly sensing and experiencing the effect on her energy field.

I will have to look up the remedy, thanks. And I will meditate.

Cheers, S

Upcoming Funeral


Empath

Blink, I'm not suggesting you don't go. If it were me I'd try to take check of what's happening and how I'm feeling every few minutes. You said you're only closely related with one family members and she struggles with anger. Being there doesn't mean you have to engage in whatever she chooses to say or do. You can politely indicate you will not engage, even if it is simply by not responding or limiting attention.

I'd encourage you to look up natural laws. Nobody can force you to act against your will, and this applies on a moment-by-moment basis. I realize you feel you must attend; it's what you do while you're there that counts. I agree with whoever recommended you walk away for a while if (even before) things become too intense. That is consistent with what I'm saying. It's your choice, and give a reason like "it's overwhelming" if need be. I doubt anyone will see this as unreasonable.

Best, S

Living in the present


Empath

Interesting. I can understand: the one premonition I had that I "should" have acted upon to avoid a big problem, I did act on but it didn't make any difference as the person I told didn't really take notice.

The irony is that for me, when I live in the moment I'm far more likely to see any problems and avoid them. I try to learn from our beautiful dogs in this respect. They know no other way!

Feeling out of sorts around the time of a traumatic event


Empath

My daughter is doing well, thank you. She only has mild after effects now a week after it happened. She needs to get staples removed from her head, and I suspect I'll feel her anxiety with her as I did when they were put in! :( Other than that we're just testing her with more and more activity/motion and she seems fine.

Apologies obviously my description wasn't clear. When I say ear-ringing I mean a more pronounced short-term ringing. It generally lasts for only a matter of seconds. Sometimes it is only a feeling of pressure change, other times it is accompanied by ringing. When you look it up, it seems to be fairly common. This is what I describe above.

As for so-called "tinnitus", I think it is a sound of our planet, always there. Like you I love it. I often listen to the tone(s) as I go to sleep.

Best, S

Feeling out of sorts around the time of a traumatic event


Empath

Recently, my daughter fainted, fell and hit her head. She then had a delayed concussion. I watched her become unresponsive and pale/yellow. I also vaguely recall sensing her energy was somewhat like I sense in some people who seem sick to me. Fortunately she came to within 10 or 15 seconds but still it was a shock.

For three days prior to this, I had poor sleep and was irritable/on edge. For a few days after, it was the same. This is not usual for me; in fact these days it is very unusual to sleep poorly for so many days in a row.

So I wonder whether others' have had this kind of experience: feeling out of sorts before and/or after some kind of traumatic event unfolds? I find it difficult to believe it is just 'random' coincidence.

I also get ear-ringing and had it the night before. Does anyone else get ear-ringing. From my experience so far, I think one author nailed it when she said it's basically something saying "pay attention". From careful observation it seems that for me, left ear-ringing indicates something significant is happening right now. Right ear-ringing indicates something significant is going to occur in the future, usually very soon.

I do not think it coincidence either that my daughter fainted literally in front of me, to the point that I was able to stop her fully falling to the ground and I was with her in the moments afterward when she was concussed (i.e. when she was unresponsive). It could have been worse.

I wonder whether others have noticed feeling out of sorts or having any kind of sense something was awry before and/or after a traumatic event (or perhaps just a very significant event)?

Do I fit the label "empath"?


Empath

I know I answered most of these, but I can't resist :)

  • Were you described as an over-sensitive child?

And adult, yes.

  • Do you pick up energy from other people?

Yes, albeit I only realised just how much recently.

  • Do you feel worse when you are around crowds?

Oh yeah! Wish I'd known why when I was young, and especially during University days. Those days make so much more sense now. I thought all the uncertainty, anxiety, different moods was all me. I guess I know how much confusion there is among the young people at a University. Now I work at one!

  • Do you find it hard to watch the news or sad/violent movies?

I think yes. I think I desensitised myself but have now reversed that. Hard to say for sure as I basically don't watch the news and rarely watch movies. It's all from a propaganda machine to me.

  • Do you sense when someone is not telling the truth?

To a painful extent! I sometime cringe when someone attempts to lie or conceal the truth. Common thought: "Seriously, you think I'm going to buy that??"

  • Do you have mood swings for reasons that you often dont understand and cant control?

I think yes. I'm not "moody" at all, and find moody people a bit hard to take (wonder why?). However I do have 'sudden onset' changes in the way I feel for no apparent reason. I may abruptly feel sadness for no apparent reason. If this is the meaning, definitely yep.

  • Do you have other experiences that modern science cant explain (such as telepathy, knowing future events, or knowing current events happening far away)?

Yes, I've had clear and specific premonitions (albeit rare). The biggest one for me is synchronicities, often "in your face" type, like the Universe/Source has a sense of humor. Also I tend to know how things are going to play out, especially if I use intuition rather than the analytic mind. Nice one for me: I can often sense what's going on with our dogs, and our boy (dog) often gets my visual requests (so-called commands) and follows them if he's motivated.

As for modern science, I know much of it very well and most of it is nonsense. I've had a funny journey with that one. I've gone from being a mainstream science 'junkie' to knowing most mainstream science is more like pseudo-science. The theory of relativity is perhaps most notable. It's nonsense. Einstein was an interesting fellow, he indicated he knew it was nonsense.

Hi Paul,

I'm hoping you're still around to see my reply though it doesn't appear you've been on for a while.

I first bought an orgone pyramid. I felt a strong calm/tranquil energy emanating from it. It almost feels as though it's floating in the air. It's quite different. To begin with, I found it a bit strong; nowadays I normally don't notice it.

What I noticed is incredible energetic clarity. Electrical lights had an entirely different quality, more crisp and clear. Sources of EMF bother me far, far less, including my cell phone, which used to give me a painful tingling within a few minutes on my head (suffice to say I rarely let this happen). It felt like our house was suddenly in the middle of the countryside, far away from everything (energetically).

I'm interested in your comment that it can disrupt your natural energy field. How do you know? You could well be right. I wear a pendant when I'm out and on balance it seems positive to me. Indeed, at first I couldn't believe the clarity. That said, it took me two or three days to get used to having orgonite around and I'm open to there being concerns.

Upcoming Funeral


Empath

Not coming out as a ramble at all.

It's great that people can point to techniques and tools to use.

In my humble opinion, the most fundamental thing is that you choose how you act and you choose what you give your attention to. It's difficult in charged/emotional situations to remember this--well certainly for me anyhow. If you use a technique, it's because you choose to do so, and to my mind that is what gives anything beneficial its power.

You also have the power to say "no" by word or by conduct. If you need to grieve, you have the choice to do so and to tell people you need to do so, even if this is simply by politely withdrawing attention or not engaging.

Empath Attachment to Negative People


Empath

I'm only just learning about shielding so won't say much on that.

When I was young I tended to be with people who were 'broken' to some extent. I've always known I did this, but only recently did I learn it's an empath thing. One was depressive and could be dark. One lied a lot. I've actually worked lately on trying to break any lingering attachments--it's been decades, but I often feel intense connections to past times so I'm not convinced attachments necessarily fade as much as we might think with the passage of time. I have no idea how successful this has been--I'm mostly in a good mind-frame anyhow these days. Mostly.

I know that for me sometimes the law of attraction -- like attracting like -- comes into play. I work with someone who is ultra-controlling. I went through a period in which I did a lot of left-brain (logical, analytic) work and I was tending to be more controlling (unbalanced left brain seeks control). During this time I could work with this guy. Now I find his controlling nature overwhelming. Often I can hardly bear to hold conversations with him. His attempts to control what I think are intrusive. I feel what it's like to be his energy and it's not nice. He's not 'bad', just hyper-controlling. So when I was more that way, I could be in his company; now I can only take him in small doses, if at all.

The head of our area is a Narcissist and she means people harm. For some reason, she has little affect on my energy. I had a meeting with her recently and I paid her as little attention as possible. She came across like a robot. I think she has very little of her own energy and spends her time pressing others' buttons to derive responses and energy. In that case all I had to do is withdraw my focus and she was like a shell, barely human. I thought I needed to shield myself from her, and I made some effort to do so, but it seemed that it was simply a matter of withdrawing focus. This makes sense as attention is obviously energy. However it's not difficult for me to withdraw energy in this situation as I cannot relate to or even fathom the person at all.

So I think it really depends what sort of "negative individual", the history and our reason for being in contact.

Can't tell what is my energy and what is from outside myself


Empath

Very difficult with a family member with whom you have a long history and connection, huh? My mother is highly anxious and I think I got tendencies toward anxiety from her. Basically, she'd get anxious in association with various things, I'd pick up on the anxiety and I suspect the anxiety took on a life of its own within me to some extent. Learning about being an empath really puts a different perspective on your life!

How do you know your dad has animosity toward you? If he has self-loathing and hostility toward others, might you not just be picking up on that which has little to do with you? Or do his actions suggest animosity specifically toward you.

Yes I agree on finding and learning ways of using our abilities and nature and minimising the hard parts, particularly when they're unproductive.

This may sound weird but...


Empath

Like others, I'd strongly suspect you're feeling your son's energy. Perhaps he gravitates to it when he's feeling particularly peaceful? I would also suspect it's a form of psychometry. It's interesting to me as I've wondered whether I could develop any skills in psychometry and it hadn't occurred to me the obvious place to start is with objects of people close to me, or at least people I know. Hmm, it also occurs to me I should lose a couple of objects from someone in my house :)
