Tools for Empaths
yup, i totally agree! i just feel much more comfortable with two crystals. haven't paired up the same kind yet, though! i should definitely try
atm, i'm experimenting with my gemstones a lot, building couples and teams to wear. i found out that i like it more than just wearing one stone, because they give off a more balanced vibe together.
in example, i recently fell in love with the protection black tourmaline offers, but i like to soften it up with the gentle vibe of moonstone. i feel like moonstone keeps me aware and intuitive while black tourmaline keeps me from getting hurt by what i pick up.
of course you can't mix them up too carelessly or randomly, but there definitely are some real dreamteams. what about you? what are your personal dreamteams?
thank you, i'm really glad i'm not the only one! where have you posted those resources? i'd love to see them!
it's been two months since i've realized that i'm an empath, and it brought me a lot of peace to finally know what is going on with me.
now i feel like i'm becoming more sensitive, also when it comes to my "normal senses" - in example, i've never had problems with my eyes, but recently i'm so sensitive to light that on certain days, i need to wear sunglasses even when i'm inside. it could be just the change from winter to spring or a mild allergy, but i've never experienced either before.
it's also possible that i encountered one or several spirits in my old room when i was visiting my parents last week. i'm not entirely sure about that, though.
it's like i opened a door and now all is rushing in at the same time? has any of you gone through this, too, when you first opened up to being an empath?
sometimes, when i try to shield myself from someone else's painful emotions, i get the feeling that i'm actually holding myself back from succeeding. it's like even though their vibes really drain me, i feel like i can't just look away from their pain. i know i should probably learn that i can't help everyone. but at the same time, i wonder if there's anything i can do - like projecting positive energy on them or something? since i'm new to this stuff though, i really need some tips and guidance on how to do that. can any of you help me?
thanks a lot!
yeah, that describes my doubts exactly. i guess i probably just have to get more used to the term and to get a better view of what life is like for other empaths and then i'll probably be fine.
i think you've read me well, i couldn't have described my sadness better in so little words - immense but light really pinpoints it. as well as really tired and also constantly looking for my place in the world.
thank you, i do feel closer to my answers now!
hi, i'm new here first of all, english is not my mother tongue so please forgive me if i write something weird
about since the new year has started, i've been trying to figure out if i might be an empath. there are certain things that make me think so:
i feel highly affected by other people's mood and especially moodswings to the worse, without them having to express it (although i'm especially sensitive to voices). when i catch someone's bad mood, i get really jittery, nervous and anxious. sometimes it even triggers anxiety attacks. apart from normal symptoms that come with anxiety attacks and nervousness etc, there are no other physical effects though.
as soon as i sense the bad mood, i feel this overwhelming urge to fix things and i won't be able to control myself - i'll be desperately trying to make things better, get a smile from that person etc, because i just can't bear that mood.
i also feel that when i'm with other people, i tend to be almost electrified with too much energy (in a very negative way - like there's too much energy inside me to handle, which in the end just numbs me down enormously) and once i'm alone again i'm so drained and fatigued and need hours of alone time.
when i'm part of a crowd, it gets even worse. in example, although i approve of some political protests, i can't participate because i get immensely scared and overwhelmed with the dynamics of the crowd.
as part of an audience, i often feel like the nervousness of the (ie) actors is taking over me, making me feel close to tears.
i actually barely ever cry for myself, or about personal things in front of others. as soon as i'm confronted with someone (close to) crying, i could bawl my eyes out with them.
i try to be open and careful at the same time when it comes to things like extrasensory perception, etc - still, it's like i know that energy exchange is a huge influence in our daily lives and i try to keep myself very aware of how i word things and try to keep my thoughts and perspectives positive, because i feel like otherwise i might hurt somebody unintentionally with bad energy.
still, i was thinking that due to past slightly traumatic experiences (intense bullying, abusive friendships etc) maybe out of a need for self-protection, i might just be overly paranoid over people's mimics, voice and gestures. but somehow that doesn't add up that well either, since i've overcome quite some issues that were keeping me from healthy relationships in the past.
I also do miss things, and sometimes i indeed am oblivious to someone's pain. while i do have a good intuition and normally i can follow my guts with people, that took me a lot of experience and training, so i don't think it's something extraordinary in that department.
i'm sorry if this was a bit all over the place. i'd just love to now what you think about all that - and more importantly, what kind of feeling you get from me.
and nice meeting you all
