@renee. Hey girl. Missed you

Heyyy!!! I have missed you too! You've been on my mind but I have been steering very clear of so many places recently whilst I work out that stuff above!! If you want you can private message me and I'm happy to stay in contact elsewhere if I drop out of here for a bit. Completely up to you and I so hope you are well!

Trevor Lewis:

Hi @renee 

One direction that many people go in is to establish yourself as a "Minister of Religion" through an online church.  There are a number of online organizations calling themselves "Universal Life Church".  The theory is that you are more protected practicing your religion than you are as a business.  To be fully effective, it requires that you are clear and up front with your "congregants" that you are practicing under those auspices.

(Caveat: Although I am a card-carrying minister, I personally do not explicitly practice under those terms.)

Remember the best protection is to use your intuition. Listen to your guidance and only work with people you are comfortable with.  It is never worth the money to work with the wrong people. Be comfortable with turning people away and you will never have to deal with a "problem client".

Blessings!

P.S. Good to see you back here



Oh wow I had never considered that as an option and to be completely honest even the idea terrifies me! As soon as the word "church" is involved I head in the other direction....Iinda do however love church buildings and cathedrals but that's a different story!
I will have a look into this, but it sound more of an in depth thing for just providing readings?
And yes I completely understand about having the strength to turn some away. I most definately have experienced that and turned one client away as I was shown a few things that came with massive warnings to not proceed with the reading, so I opted to not continue. I also had another reading where I went back and double checked the person was aware of the level of information that was possible to come up and what support they had in place should they need it. I trusted this as I had had the previous warning for the other reading so felt if there was the need to stop it altogether I would have received such a warning again.... but it has been so interesting to learn those different aspects.

Thanks so much for the advice I will have a look into those possibilities.
And thankyou! I need to have a look around and see what has been happening here!

Nocturne's Angel:
Renee: Hi fellow empathy! I haven't been in here for ages so I hope you are all well, it's been a bit of a whirlwind energy lately hasn't it! I'm wanting to ask advice for anyone working in the spiritual industry particularly readers, mediums and intuits whether you could give any advice or direction for someone wanting to step into this field. I've been providing spirit guide and soul path readings for people online with amazing insight, guidance etc. and are wanting to look at how to turn this into an online biz. It's more so the legalities in terms of duty of care, insurance, professional indemnity etc. that I'm wanting to know. Does anyone have any experience in this area? Or able to provide a starting point? Thank you xx

Hi @renee

Each city, state, country, etc.  has their own set of guidelines that need to be followed so I'd recommend looking up the legalities, etc. for your local region.

Once you have figured out the guidelines, legalities, etc. for your jurisdiction you may want to file the necessary paperwork with your state, province, etc.  to incorporate into an LLC (again you will need to check your local area's guidelines.)

PayPal & Square Up are great services to use to get paid; when you have time I'd recommend looking into both sites, as well as, other payment gateways to find one that is best suited for you & your needs.

Once you've done this I'd recommend establishing yourself in the form of a website, as well as, social networking sites.

Then I'd advise you to get feedback, reviews, etc. from people you've already given readings.

If you can't obtain those reviews I'd recommend offering roughly 25 free mini readings in exchange for feedback, reviews, etc.  this way when someone stumbles onto your social media business pages, website, etc.  he or she can read what others have written about your services.

Best wishes :)



Thankyou so much for this great feedback! I've since checked with others who work in similar fields and they have pointed me in the direction of associations for membership and insurance to follow up, but none of them work in the online world so I have no idea about how it works there. I've recently applied for a business number where I am but I know that it only allows for business in my country so I do need to keep exploring I think.

I've done about 20 free readings and have received feedback from all and about half of them are happy to provide a review and that kind of thing, so I am looking for more avenues to offer free readings or readings in exchange for a donation with a review as well, so I will keep following that up as well.
Thankyou so much for the info, I'll check up in those aspects as well.
Xx

Balance


Empath

Ouch, sounds like you are having a wringer of a time! you were right to back away from Facebook, I left Facebook 18mths ago and so many of my issues/concerns/fears/triggers disappeared. However a few months ago i set up a pseudo profile to connect in a couple of groups i belong in, but they are very select groups, however have slowly jumped on to a couple of other "spiritual" groups and wow! the energy in them is powerful! Mostly i find it ok, but there are so so many people out there who are just hurting, lost etc. 

For me I've begun to use those as checkpoints. I'm seeing it, i know i was like that, but now i see it and i no longer am. You said you try not to react how you would have once before, I'd say acknowledge the checkpoints, acknowledge that you are no longer in that space anymore and let it all pass you by. I know for me i have to stay off Facebook (kind of difficult as I'm setting up a business and need a business page) but i do find instagram extremely uplifting provided your mindful of who and what kind of accounts you follow. If you do feel the need to connect on a SM platform, maybe try IG over FB, depending on what you are after. IG is great for those who need an outlet to just be themselves and connect with others who are on a similar journey without the judgement and carry on that comes from Facebook which is mostly people you may know but not necessarily on the same path as. 

you did say you tried everything so I'm not sure what else other than, give yourself the space away from people that you need. Get out into nature and connect there, I find connecting with nature and animals to be even more beneficial that humans at times! For all our beauty we are not the easiest species to connect with!! 

Deep breaths

Money empath


Empath

....anyone else feel like they are a highly skilled money empath at this time of year??? You know, money comes in you feel it for a moment and then transmute it out into and it's gone? Haha !

Sorry I am in a terrible mood, I hate this time of year and all the pressure that surrounds but that gave me the first lil crack of a smile in a few days!

Empaths and "the holidays"


Empath

yep!  I get this one! I hate this time of year!!! Similar thing in that i always seem to be looking for somewhere for my kids and i to "belong" for xmas and it gets depressing. All my family around and yet everyone now just goes and does their own thing.... and yep money!!!! Ive been busy this year trying to make a few bits, i do most years as I'm pretty creative and artsy, but i have 5 kids so it is still so damn expensive no matter how much i make! 

I notice as well that come christmas time there are a few suburbs that i just cannot go to. The energy becomes so dense, so much fear, anger resentment there. I avoid shops as much as possible and try to shop online. Ive got it worked out pretty good now so i can avoid the big retail places and not have to pick up all that energy.

Ugh and christmas is meant to be fun and festive! I hate it!

Third Eye Opening Randomly


Empath

It doesn't seem to be something that can be used to stop death when I see or hear it, it always seems to be a "just letting you know so you are prepared...." I know always refer back to the movie men in black 3 where the unicorn alien griffin says - where there is death there will always be death.... It's one of those things I'm come to think of with being an empath is that we really are here to take the pains and see the things that others may not be able to handle..... sorry I derailed the thread slightly! But that's my experience with all those bits

Third Eye Opening Randomly


Empath

Cat Whisperer: Yes, I have the ear thing happen as well as seeing faces. Funny about the faces, it seems to be people that I do not recognize, but then that happens in my daily life that I cannot remember a persons face unless I see them quite often. The ear thing.....varies from a low hum to high pitched with sounds of an electric short. The first time I experienced the electrical sound I was convinced that there had to be a problem in the house....had my husband search the whole house, didn't want a fire, lol. Then I heard it in the car one day then realized it was coming from beyond. The faces seemed to appear most often when I was meditating a lot. I haven't been meditating as often as I would like lately...life is crazy busy, so I haven't seen the faces as often. I was wondering if they were people that were still on this earth plane or if perhaps they were deceased. Maybe they are to relay a message as Rene mentioned. Anyhow...you are not alone, seems it happens to a lot of us. I also want to mention as an afterthought, I will occasionally hear voices too, but muffled so cannot make out what is being said.

Blessings

Aha yes I would check the house to see where the ringing was coming from or who had left the Tv - you know the old tv's with static lol a few weeks ago I took my kids travelling down south, we were out in the bush and on my children's ancestral land and all of a sudden my daughter (10yrs) started freaking out because she had an intense buzzing and ringing in her ear and began feeling a sort of vortex of energy swirling around her,  I told her to sit quietly under the tree and take deep breaths and listen but as she is quite an angry kid at the moment she found it difficult to calm down enough! Nice intro for her though! 

I've heard voices Whilst awake only a couple of times, however when I've heard them they have been people who are on this plane but right before they have passed or been in serious trouble. Sometimes the people have been known to me really well others I wondered why it was me they were calling too as they didn't like me in real life. I woke one night as a teen to hearing a girl that really hated me screaming my name, crying and asking for help to save her. A couple of hours later a friend banged on my window (in the physical plane) and told me the same girl had been raped again by an older family member and had gone and hung herself. It always haunts me as to if I had enough responded (I was a few suburbs away) could I have saved her. 18yrs on and I still hear her voice.... the voices and seeing death has only happened about 5 times, however in a mediatation 2 nights ago something has come through again (first time in approx 5yrs) that is showing the passing of someone and they have said goodbye and told me they would always be "right here" in the spirit realm waiting so now I'm trying to keep an eye out as to whether this person is still alive and also sending so so much love and strength...... sometimes I wonder about these buzzing, ringing m, third eye opening and voices and what exactly it is we are meant to do with it......

Third Eye Opening Randomly


Empath

I find this happens at times with me but I also get the ears going more frequently when messages are trying to come thru. It's like everything becomes muted and then I'll get a ringing vibrating or buzzing until I get a message of sorts and then it may stop. As Rene said if it's causing issues visuality it shutting when you need. I also make it quite clear that "I'm busy right now so I'm not open to receiving" and then will set the intention later that "I'm open to receiving what it is I need to be made aware of" ...this usually works quite well unless it's quite important..... kinda feels like the incessant call from the parents at times lol hope that helps a little

VENTING!


Empath

Cheshire Cat:

Sigh. I also  recognize the examples both of you just gave, Renee and nikki3. People are predictable in our strangeness, lol.

Another one that really gets to me is when others will put up with numerous people who treat them horribly, put them down, walk all over them, take advantage, lie, cheat, mooch, yell at them, and treat them like dirt in general, but the minute I disagree with them on the tiniest little unimportant thing, they drop me as a friend. It makes me feel about as low as you can get, to be worth so little to people. Often, these people have been telling me they love me, I am a "dear friend', I am "like a sister", I can "never lose them no matter what", etc. right up until I say something they don't agree with. 

It has taken awhile to dawn on me, but I think maybe I am interpreting this wrong, and they really feel so badly about themselves that they think they deserve the awful treatment they get, and just use whatever it was I disagreed with them about as an excuse to get rid of me, since they feel I see through their act, whatever it happens to be. They feel they can't live up to what I expect, even though I keep that to myself, since I know I have no right to expect anything from anyone. I guess I am pretty transparent in letting them see what I wish I could expect, since I've even been told by two people that they felt like they were good people until they knew me, and that I made them feel bad about themselves just by being who I am. Their answer to my "making" them feel bad was that I should be less of a "goody two shoes" and "make more mistakes" and "be more human". The idea that I should be less than I can be made me angry, so you would think seeing me blow a gasket would satisfy them, but no, I'm still not nasty enough I guess. It's actually funny to me now. 

I could have more friends than I could handle if I would put up and shut up and play those games. I have standards, and know from experimenting that I am better off alone than to lower them. Being surrounded by the wrong people makes me feel lonelier than being alone. When I was younger, probably the age of most of you, I had a small tight group of very close friends. I had to move for health reasons and have never fit in where I have to live now. I seem to  have a bunch of casual ones instead, most of whom I rarely or never see in person. Casual is just not who I am, so it's hard. 

Can any of you relate to my example above, where "friends" willingly accept awful treatment from others, but the slightest disagreement, even on a relatively unimportant subject is not acceptable when it comes from you? I wonder what I am doing wrong here to be so unvalued.

C. Cat

Oh I know this one,  from both sides. You are the light bringer to those who are standing in the dark. It takes a massive amount of constant negative self talk to allow yourself to stay in the dark being mistreated and abused (I know I allowed it for 10yrs) and when those loving friends and family would come looking for me holding the lantern that light was so freaking bright it was painful. There's a lot of fear associated with it. It means going against everything you know to trust that you could have a better life, that you are in fact worthwhile, and that means questioning you've ever known and believed. It's difficult to step out of your comfort zone and sometimes your comfort zone is a dark and dangerous place. It took me a long time to step out, and the adjustments and learning to trust that life can be safe, and stable, and good and ok has been a really long road. However I now have children who have spent their entire lives in that darkness, who do not trust anything good and I am finding it so very difficult working out how to get them to slowly move out of it and allow themselves to be happy in the light. I'm also now on the other side standing in the light while a lifelong friend has retreated into the darkness, knowingly allowing herself to be mistreated, accepting abuse, having watched me go through mine but now trying to justify hers with - it's not that bad, it will get better, he will change... 

it is so hard to be in either of those positions. I just made it clear to her that I will always love her and am here when she is ready, but until then I can't be around to see it. 

I have those close to me who also know that from time to time I may slip back into that self defeatist space and to just allow me to explore it and resolve it and then move out on my own..... 

i would suggest that it's not that it's not acceptable coming from you, but that you are on a bit of a pedestal for them. Or that they are struggling with the light you bring and therefore take the excuse to stop the friendship. In their own time they will see.

Sympathy vs empathy


Empath

TigerLily:

@renee, you seem very stressed today like everythibg inside is shaking.  Are you ok?  

  I do feel you all on this.  I feel we need to put more love and compassion to us first.  i know when i do my confidence goes amd i can help people better.  To me I feel it's a problem in society in general, love you first and the rest will follow.  We are being broken down all the time by narcs and fake people.  people who themself have to find that love fot themselves. But always look for in it in other people to give it to them.  it's a vicious cycle if you follow.  But in the end seems we as empaths suffer the most and need to be more compassionate to ourselves as well.  From the time I've been on this community I see it alot.   I think it takes alot to develop that emotional strength to handle both.  I also think alot of us do a great job at it, and others time the energy accumulates and we crash before we know it.  

Today? Or when I wrote this? Today has been great, very relaxed as I finally got sometime under the water which is where I'm able to relax and recharge! When I wrote this though yes likely a little stressed as it's been a stressful few months/years... I'm hoping I'm coming to the end of it and as we finish up this cycle I can move into the next with renewed hope! I do completely agree with the need for compassion for the self. I was just speaking with someone about this today how there is so much energy given to others without topping up our own reserves and therefore becoming drained extremely quickly. And the need for self compassion and just giving ourselves the time to recharge and not be so harsh on ourselves...

Sympathy vs empathy


Empath

Kaitlyn Brokaw:

I think compassion and sympathy and empathy are all very vast a and different, leaving a huge leeway to the definitions of each. Define what it means to you, all empaths are different :) 

Also, I suggest working closer with Kuan Yin, who is an ascended master, she is the goddess of Compassion. I've seen her miracles happen right in front of me and it's quite amazing. <3

Kuan yin is showing up a lot all over the place for me and is one I am very interested in learning more about.... unfortunately I can find very few sources of anything good. Can you recommend?

Cheshire Cat:

nikki3,

Thanks for making me feel less alone. We are a lonely bunch comparatively speaking. I think that friend of yours may actually be a true friend if he can take that level of honesty and still hang in there. 

I wonder why some people continue to lie when they know we can read them? As for calling them on it, I have repeated word for word to people the truth as I've seen it in their minds, have them look scared to death and back away from me, and then try to weasel out of it with another even bigger lie! What level of self-deception does it take to do that and think you'll get away with it? Darned if I know. I gave up doing it, since it just makes me feel more frustrated and if I give someone enough rope to hang themselves with, they always comply. It gets boring after awhile. 

I feel like I've been incarnated into the insane asylum of the galaxy. Or maybe I'm in a psych ward right now and am hallucinating this whole life.......Now I'm really scaring myself! That would be a relief though, if I could snap out of it. ;-)

C. Cat

I'm so with you both! It is a very lonely life at times, I always feel most alone when surrounded by people. But yea it gets boring when you can pick the lie, then you know the next lie before it's been spoken but have to somehow find the energy to be surprised and try believe the lie.... I do think people need lies. I allow them to have them as I view it as not being able to face their own crap rather than feeling the need to lie to me. But don't call me on my honest bullshit if I can't call you on your dishonest bullshit!

Nikki3:

The one I hate the most is when people tell a story about someone else to try and tell you something about yourself.  I can tell they are making the story up just to send a message to me.  I just nod and smile and say 'oh wow, weird' or 'great story, then what happened?' LOL  But it does bother me because I walk away wondering what I'm doing wrong and I also wonder why people just can;t say what's on their mind... like I'm not worth the truth.  I have a file folder in my psych shelf in my head that helps me get over this quickly though.  It's not about me. 

Oh oh oh I love this one!!! This exact thing happened in this scenario where I vented to a trusted confidante and the response was very much a "story about another aimed at me!" My issue is im happy to own that, I honestly said "yep I get that I do that it's a difficult and long process to retrain conditioned and learnt behaviours but I'm doing it" .... the person who it came from who is very aware, is an empath and also stated that they can pick up the underlying energies even if others don't, didn't actually have the integrity to say that yes they do those very same things, have done their whole life and refuse to stop playing the game! It frustrates me as there is a high level of vulnerability needed to openely own your bullshit and when you do it and others refuse to see their side or even allow it do be discussed as they will discuss yours it always leaves me feeling extremely violated and let down. I feel like I'm ripped open and then just left there while they continue on holding their shit together under a false bravado!!!! Arrgghhg yep hate that one!

Just breath and be just as rude as you need to be lol.    Just because we are Empaths does not mean we cant roar sometimes.   I roar a lot. Lol.   It gets to be tooo much trying to be who they expect us to be.   It gets hard to breath.   It's not like your a narcissist, trying to invade someone else's air.  This is your air!  Your ground.   Put your armor on and scream "I be damn".  Sorry.   I got caught up in the moment.   

What others think of us creates us if we let them.   Your not venting. It's called gaining control of Renee the Empath and what you will allow.  I see it as acceding.    Yes.  We love all but we have to love the real us.  The one with no makeup and hair in a ponytail.    Like it or not World!  That's who we are.  

Find your loving center and show it to the world.   I like your center..by the way.  

And thankyou!!! <3 my centre is a whole lot of gooey fluffy squishy love with a heap of fierceness thrown in... I love it, but just need to find a balance on allowing it out in a productive way.

Oh you have no idea how happy your comment makes me @rene it really affirms so much of what has been swimming in my head all night and day! I agree with so so much of it! And that is me trying work out who I am in all of this. You know I wrote this and just felt a release, rang a friend who knows the other person in question who said "nope it's her insecurities not mine" and then received a few messages around how beautiful, graceful and stylish I am  which I had to laugh at hahah (the situation arose around how we dress and put ourselves out there) and I explained how I've just dreaded my hair this year as I'd had enough of forever trying to be this image that I could never attain, I can't do makeup, don't do fashionable clothes, rarely wear shoes and just don't care. And what came back was that was exactly what this lady was complimenting me on and why the other was feeling extremely intimidated by, because I just don't care about the expectations anymore. So I'm now understanding it is more the energy than the appearance. I'm also loud, I'm an agitator, I say all the crap that no one speaks about, but I will also love you harder than any other because I feel your soul and believe that we are all here to live our own journeys and that must be honoured, should be celebrated and loved moreso! I can feel the lady's insecurities, but also her insecurities for her daughter and I just want to give her a big hug and tell her it will be ok! I've got 10yrs on her daughter who is mid 20's and already 10steps ahead of where I was at that age, but she will get there. 

But ugh some days it would be so nice to not know a thing.... I think I need to master the selective shielding as there is so so much goodness that I don't want to lose, but while I'm trying to work me out there's so much other stuff I don't want to take on and have influence me.

What Makes You Feel Good?

aww i wish i could say people! lol.... nature for me and most definitely the ocean. On the shores, rocky cliffs, jagged coastlines or diving into the depths. Im forever watching that horizon, for what i don't know, but it gives me butterflies in my tummy as the possibilities become endless! And sunsets! Sunsets are the one constant reminder that everything is forever changing, that light fades into darkness, and darkness brings that moment to retreat before being driven out by the power of light! hmm i think i need to spend another long day at the beach. thank you for the reminder

Oh My Gawwddd!!! I wish i wish i was not able to feel the energy of others! I wish i was not able to pick up on those heavily loaded comments that come and make you want to retreat back into your own sacred space! I have so very few little groups that i will come out of my space to be in and today just feeling the judgement! I have no idea how to navigate this thing called life and people. If you speak up you are too loud. If you don't speak you are shutting everyone out. If you sit patiently and await your turn you are a wall flower and will be completely missed. If you interrupt you are just damn rude. If you dress down you get asked if "are you ok? You look terrible!" If you dress decent judgements are made as to who you are trying to impress. If you speak about it you are causing drama. If you vent to a confidante you are still causing an issue. If you don't speak to anyone you are repressing your feelings and should really open up more! I hate when people send loaded statements and expect that i cannot pick up the undercurrent, yet if you mention that undercurrent you are taking it too serious and it wasn't intended that way. If you don't mention that undercurrent you are allowing yourself to be walked all over. So many goddam rules!

I like to just close myself off from time to time and pretend as though i know nothing and life is bliss. 

Ignorance truly is bliss! I think i will just retreat back into a cone of silence!

Healing empath

Nikki3:

It sounds to me like it is not a matter of holding your energy in but letting it out.  It's like you have a big ball of flames inside and you don't want to burn anyone so you keep it locked up tight where it builds and becomes explosive.  Somehow you manage to keep it under control but I think you need to release the heat out into the universe.  When you meditate let it flow through you and out, let go of it.

Spot on Nikki! Is definately the case but needing to find a safe and productive way of releasing it... until then I'm still very conscious of projecting it.

Paul:

Hello. I'm on the phone at work and I talk to lots of very angry and upset people all the time. Its a bit draining without proper shielding. One shield that works well is silvery like a mirror and is tied to the moon energies. Recently, due to the increases in frequencies of the shift, people have been upgraded to be more sensitive. Sometimes that can be felt as heat. Its not necessarily bad its just that the person has access to way larger amounts of energy. Healing is most important at this time.

The mirror shield is one I use a bit but didn't ever think it was overly effective....until today! My goodness, saw it in action today and it was intense the energy that was being projected at me and then the reaction as it was sent back while I sat calmly listening to the person and gave them reassurance that "yep I hear you..." I hadn't intended the mirror shield for them, but was glad it was in effect! I didn't realise it was tied to the moon energy though so that is really interesting and I'd love to look more into that. I do set the intention that it's reflected back with love for the purpose of bringing awareness to that which needs to be healed!

i did notice tonight though that I let those shields down as I get physically tired so need to watch that one a bit more. 

Your comments re the heat I'm wondering if in my instance in my initial post whether it was my emery she was picking up or hers being reflected back as I'm finding that there are similar storylines and therefore what I was speaking about was triggering her, as I had felt the heat on the other side of me whereby another lady who was visibly triggered by what I was saying was sitting next to me. I did notice it again this evening a similar thing. I think I'm going to try filter whose is whose energy next time to even see if it's mine!

Paul,

How do you mirror shield? I'm curious as to the technique.

The mirror shield is the same as any other shield set with the intention of reflecting back the energy to the sender to bring to their awareness their own behaviours and actions. I've been doing this with a couple of people - along with cutting cords of previous hurts and forgiveness stuff - and have found a huge shift in dynamic and the way they interact with me... I also know it's been done to me by 2 different people and has been very effective in showing me the negative aspects of my own behaviour...

imagine/set up your shield, but as a mirror. I always call on arch angel Michael to assist and to also ask that it's reflected back gently in a way that serves to assist them sender in their own healing...

I met one guy once that just hated me from the start. Contempt. Later I found out indirectly that we had been in another life situation where he lost the argument big time as I was very senior to him. I suppose he kept it going that long. LOL I just mirror shield and its his own doing when it bounces back.

I learned yesterday that you can make the choice to break or severe any past life promises or oaths that you may have with souls.... have you heard about this or know anything of it? I would assume it would be similar to cord cutting, but not sure. I am going to find out more about it as I have a few where I know it's a past life promise oath etc and I would like it severed!

I find that it’s about 50/50 when I run into an alpha male/female type who is also narcissist or sociopath (which often seems to be the case). They seem to know how to influence and mind control people and get really frustrated when they meet me and can't influence/control me (its like we empaths block them from doing what they are used to doing to people). Sometimes those types get really uncomfortable around me and their insecurities shine through. While other times they are hostile to me and block so all I feel is their contempt for me. It's interesting that all my life narcissist & sociopath types have been like an arch-enemy. They seem to hate me before they even meet me. They spot me across a restaurant or cocktail party and shoot me dirty looks (drawn to me like a magnet). And then someone introduces us and its like...showtime.

Move found that since I have been doing a lot of healing work on self that those types - narcs and socios- just avoid me like a plague! Literally physically avoid me, they will look at me and stare me down but will not come close to me. I had an incident in the shopping centre a little while ago when a man Beelined for me and had his eyes fixed on me for about 50m, stopped turned around and came back towards me, stopped and just hung around about 10m off, then walked up to me circled around me but didn't come within 1 1/2m, then went to the other side of a small shopping stand and stood staring at me for about 10min while I waited at a counter. I then held eye contact with him and he upped and left. It was extremely strange and others approached me to see if I was ok as it was noticed by most other people around me. 

The following week I had another guy with similar energy who was walking in my direction (nothing to do with me just my direction) looked up and saw me and then detoured...... 

its very strange but I'm kind of enjoying now that I don't even have to deal with them!!!

I'm going to add that empaths can be some of those things too. I know in some of my worst periods I dumb and drain energy from some of my support people. I also have had a few stages whereby life is an emotional roller coaster and train wreck and then it's not so much attention but validation of "am I making the right decision" because there's little trust in self.... so I will put my hand up and say empaths can do some of those things too. I'm guilty, but am trying to call myself out on it and begin to keep it in check quite a bit more than when I had no idea. 


I have also.   Mostly on here.   If it hadn't been for the good advice I have received here, I would still be a train wreck.      

You confused me with your new pic!!! had to take a 2nd look as to who you were haha.... Completely off topic of this thread. However, maybe inline due to the whole "fake" theme here...... I'm considering changing my online name for a few reasons. If i keep the same pic so we know its me is that ok with all :-D the idea of a fake name is a little unnerving and to be honest i cannot even think of anything. I tend not to do "fake" to well, but just know i suffer from a little paranoia from time to time and am feeling the need to change my name or otherwise i may shut down.......

I just added blue kyanite to my "daily bag". I read it is a good "one stop shopping stone" and will pull all chakras into balance. Has anyone used this with any luck or advice?

I have a wand that I made years ago that has kyanite, I haven't used it so much in recent years, but I find it to be such a strong crystal, really grounding and assist with connecting to energies. The wand itself is called my grandmother wand as she holds the energyies of earthy grandmothers. Yes love kyanite, maybe I should start using this a little more....

Yeeessss oh my gawd yessss! Do they know? Are they skilled???? The couple that come to mind with me have been previous intimate partners with whom I have picked up a lot but there were so many occasions where they had massive blocks up! In the end I let go of these relationships,  1 because I became really tired of always second guessing my position with them, the other they cut ties and I had no choice! What I realised though with the one I let go of, it wasn't just me they were blocking, it was almost everyone and it is because of a lot of trauma that they have been through (yes this is fact not just what I picked up as we'd discussed it a lot and that was our common ground was our similar previous experiences) but those walls would go up sporadically and I could never understand why when they had been so open to me at one point and then shut down at other points. Now I know it was more to do with them than me.... but, do they know? Are they empaths? These are 2 people that I believe to be empaths but don't know or if they know and are just not saying.... either way it's no longer my business. But so so frustrating!!

Empath

Hi @sash 

Wow your feeling it. Not sure where your based but first thing I got from reading this is you really need to get to a natural water source, preferably ocean otherwise river/lake etc and just stop and breathe for a moment! 

Theres no quick fix or one size for all with what works to help bring relief but I would say step away from the noise of social media - we tend to underestimate the impact of the energetic connection of social media but it really is horrific and people are in a lot of pain. Put it down for as long as you are able, find some water and just stop and breathe for a moment (as long as you can give yourself whether this is 30min 3hrs or 3days! ) however long you can and then trial a few different methods for helping maintain relaxation. 

Hope that helps even a little

Psychic Development Workshop: Psychic Protection - The Bubble Method

Burleigh_surfer:

I use a basic golden bubble to make it through hospitals or doctors surgeries.  I find a seafoam green bubble keeps the angry frustration energies away from me while I drive the pacific motorway in the arvos.  I certainly know about it when ive neglected to bubble up before my drive home.  Does practice make it easier to keep the shielding up for longer? I find I have to rebubble mAny times even with crystal help.

Haha is the pacific motorway the reason for it?! I thought I just got road rage on that strip!!!!

Sympathy vs empathy


Empath

Cheshire Cat:

Excellent article, Elise! Thanks. Happy

I also have been hurt so badly the past few years that I feel distanced sometimes, despite my empathic feeling of someone's pain. I don't want to let anybody in until I can regain some resilience. It may be a temporary condition for you, Renee, only lasting until you build up your adrenal reserves again, though this can take quite some time. 

I do hope it's only temporary. I've also had a difficult few years and it's only been through that time I've really noticed it. So you may be right build up the reserves and see how things go!

Rene'':

Some people can read energies even if you are shield or not. They may not can get in but they can feel your energy.    I do that and don't mean to.   I guess it's something I don't have control over yet.  There energy general  doesn't affect me but just seeing someone's name on here or anywhere .  It don't have to be a photo of them.  its a invasion of privacy to me but I don't know how to stop it yet.   I use to go to department store and everybodies emotions would pour in but now I can go in there and pick who I let in.   Most of the time anyway.  

I heat up during meditation. I have read that some gets real cold but I sweat. Someone has suggested to me before that it was a healing heat.  If that's true then I must need a lot of healing. Lol.   

Im sorry.  I got off subject. 

Ok cool yea I agree in the privacy aspect, but I guess in this particular situation it does require dropping the guards a little so I guess there's not a lot I can do. This week I am planning on trying to just manage the energy in myself a little better so I'm not projecting so much! 

The heating up during meditation is interesting! I mostly get colder unless I have a spirit close by that brings in some warmth!!

Healing empath


Empath

bunnigirl:

hi Renee.  Wow I can't even handle being around another empath alone where as you have a whole group! I can only imagine you feeling self conscious of having intense thoughts on your own and then people feeling it and knowing it and they are your feelings!   It is hard figuring all this out just trying to live our normal lives helping/healing people but being vulnerable at the same time...

Aha yep it is a lil tricky! I believe that we shouldn't really try to pick up anything and don't try to read anymore into what is being given as I think it's an invasion of privacy and I'm quite confident that most of the ladies would practice that too. However that doesn't stop them from picking stuff up. My sister and niece are also empaths and highly psychic so it's always difficult being around them when I'm not in the greatest of mindsets as I know they can see/feel it all, and when they give any advice it's kind of like "is that just an opinion or do you know something I don't" so I can be very self conscious! However I have learnt that it forces you to be more real and more authentic as you can't bullshit anything. I have another friend who has just found out she is empath (and we've not long met) and she isn't able to pick up stuff very accurately about me but I always make sure I shield with her as I do feel she has a streak to her that may not be of the highest intengrity. But your right, it is very difficult at times and can have a person feeling very vulnerable!!!

Yes a nutrition section/forum would be great! I'm in the process of becoming vegetarian/vegan, gluten/dairy free, moreso due to feeling crap after any meat or meat based products or gluten. Apparently that happens when your vibration changes right???! Not at all something I planned, and might've been easier if it hadn't have happened by the sound of all those letters you've just put up there, no idea what they mean so might have to look into it! 

no advice for you sorry goodenergyhealing but interested in any responses that shed some light as I move into this new way of eating

Sympathy vs empathy

Rene'':
Renee: Can you be an unsympathetic empath lol Sometimes I question if I'm really a true empath because so much of the time I have no sympathy and my level of compassion is questionable. I have empathy, I feel you, I see you, I understand the story as to why and how, but sometimes I don't have the compassion to be sympathetic- a lot of the time with myself!! Is this normal? How can I go about practicing more compassion? I feel like my heart and soul has been ripped to shreds over the last couple of years and I'm only just piecing it back together, so I don't have the strength to hold space for too much more "stuff" as I already am for myself + 5 kids. I hope one day I will and think it's coming soon, but I really need to understand and practice compassion. Anyone else understand this?

I understand completely.  At one time I was feeling too much now sometimes I'm numb around some people.     Maybe we are gaining control or our eyes have been open to a different level.  I don't wish anyone harm but I'm kind of glad...sometimes.  It gives me a break and energy to help those who are truly needs me.    

Yea I gues that's it, I have compassion **sometimes** but with some people it just a bit frustrating and yep you become numb to it

Sympathy vs empathy


Empath

Thanks so much for sharing this article! I've only read half of it and already had a bit of a laugh at some of the similarities and just think "ahh yep!" I guess my questioning is more so due to comparison with other people I know who seem to have so much sympathy and compassion and yet I don't most of the time. A lot of it comes down to having seen and experienced so much negative experiences that I lack a lot of sympathy, which I don't mind as I sometimes liken sympathy to pity and I don't like that. It's more the compassion that I would like to have more of! Thankyou though, I look forward to reading the rest of it later tonight

Ok cool I also wear a lot of crystals, if I'm wearing more than one pendant I will put one under clothing and the other on top. I try to avoid bracelets as I feel restricted in them depending on what I'm doing, but have started again sometimes, but I do also keep them in my pockets and bra. I like the idea of the rock salt. I was considering getting some water from the ocean and putting into a little decorative bottle and carrying with me as the ocean is always my saviour! But yes completely agree with the sage! I hate the smell! I need to do some research into oils and herbs I think to find what could be good for sprays as that seems like it could be good. I'm just terrible with anything synthetic so it's difficult to just go buy the mists from shops as they are generally more for smelling good and have a lot of crap in them!

Healing empath


Empath

So as I've mentioned elsewhere, I'm surrounded by a lot of empaths, and one of the groups I meet with weekly some of the ladies are able to very strongly pick up my energy. One lady pointed out that she could just feel a huge amount of heat coming from me (this was whilst we were each sharing stories that needed to be healed) the facilitator did mention it was the heat from pain and trauma being healed and released. Another lady blew the energy from her hand after we had been holding hands in circle. For me I'm kinda self conscious of this. Non empaths won't pick it up but empaths will and do. It kinda feels like the teen girl getting ready o go out "does my butt look big in this?" Where as I'm going "does my energy feel too big right now?" Haha I know shielding can block energy from coming in and also going out, but it seems I'm not being effective at keeping my energy in.... any other suggestions?

Fake People and Empaths


Empath

Yep it seems to be the way isn't it @rene I'm like it with the ones I turn to for advice when I am so down and out. I actually sent my sister a message after writing that response last night and just apologised for always turning to her for the same issues, offloading, dumping and draining, and that I need to trust my own intuition....so big thankyou to you for pointing it out as I probably wouldn't have apologised to her if it hadn't have been for this post!

if we were "professional" people it would be called "supervision", someone you can go to to lose it, break down, seek advice, bounce ideas, build some energy and confidence back up etc. on the flip side I'm "that person" to so many others. The one who hears the problems, gives my opinion, assists them to find the answers in themselves, and helps build them up. So I guess it's all a cycle too....

I walked into a friends house today and found there were no - crystals, dreamcatchers, feathers/bones/shells/candles, drums, Wands/staffs singing bowls, herbs, smudging fans, mandalas, yoga mats, shakti mats, altars or images of gods/goddesses and found it to be an extremely strange experience. I haven't been in a house like that in forever as everyone I am connected to is highly spiritual and therefore empath talk or anything spiritual is the norm for me. Life is not life without spirituality of some sort. So I guess it's just a bit strange to not be able to speak about such things..... I don't understand it and find it a little difficult to converse without any reference to any belief system... 🙁🙁

Thanks for the feedback and yes I am most definitely with you all on avoiding giving specific info, I learnt this the hard way all through my teens and early years never really knowing why I knew something's and would just blurt it out. Never went down well! However in general most would come back with in a few weeks and go "oh hey, sorry about that, you were right though"..... I now avoid it like the plague even if asked I will very rarely give too much of my insight... however this was more so just the general stuff, the release that, cleanse that, etc etc most of my close friends and family know I'm an empath, I'm most definitely not the only one in my family there are a few of us, and I'm surrounded by empath s so in general it's pretty cool to go - yep cleanse/shield/release/ground - we all get it. But it's the non empaths and empaths who I don't know if they know they are empaths.... the general consensus when I've asked elsewhere has been as you have each said - avoid unless asked about specific info, but general could be mentioned and they can do as they please with it. Am just interested in getting as much feedback as possible....

Hey, Just wanting to get some general feedback about giving people advice in the general public - people your connected to, not strangers, but not necessarily close people. do you tend to give it or not if they haven't specifically asked "do you have advice for me?" yet are whinging/debriefing/freaking out etc to you? This isn't specific readings or info that may be picked up as i steer clear of giving that, but the general - oh you need to ground/cleanse/release/shield/cut cords even just "hey have you heard the term empath, do you want to check it out and see how it fits?" ..... whats everyones take on this? Do you say it or no?

Negativity issues


Empath

i don't know if this will help or hinder at all, but hopefully may bring a little relief? , but I'm wondering if this is a "in general the energy is shitty" at the moment, rather than anything to do with you personally. I belong to a couple of other highly spiritual majority empath groups, and i can say that from what I'm seeing/hearing lately, almost all of october has been an absolute wringer of a month for all empaths. Im yet to come across 1 that is making it through this month without any negative issues coming to the surface. Its almost like we are being bombarded with the global negative and it is coming to the surface as some really dark and heavy stuff that is coming up to be released. whether this is our own stuff or others (i know for me it has been a a 50/50 kinda situation) its all coming out at the moment in order to be healed, released, forgiven. theres a lot to do with resentment, anger and frustrations. so if possible, process what you can and hold tight, the month is nearly over and the new moon heading our way which will hopefully bring some release/relief!! 

other than this i did check over my energy field the other night as @karen2 was explaining and damn was there some crap! it was the 1st time id done the epsom salts bath in a while (I'm in the ocean almost every day so i kinda bypass the salty bath to wash off the salt water) but that plus the energy clearing has been a massive god(ess)send!

Lucky Seven:

Hi Renee,

Thank you for your reply!

i see, somehow I blocked my crown chakra. Thats a little strange as it happened when I came back from a running (30min short time) and took a relaxing and warm bath with bath salt.

Yet, an article says the same I am getting divine guidance from crown chakra. It's so painful and made me wake up in midnight like this. I'm still having one. 

I became very hungry at the same time and when I was cooking, I saw a sudden sparkle light and heard a sound of bird'a wing flying. I turned around but nothing there. It might be my first experience of sensing an angel. 

The article

http://askgrace.com/advice-columns/0729-tingling-sensation-top-head.htm

Yet, long time meditation today didn't really help improve it much like I woke up in midnight like this with seeing my father who passed away in my dream.

Hmm I would think if its occurred this one time following a run I would think it could be related to that and wouldn't make a comment/advice as I'm not a health professional.... and maybe health advice should be sought?

if it's a general ongoing occurrence with no prior possible concern then this is only one avenue to explore. 

With the other sensations connected though they are quite interesting

I get this generally when I'm focussing too hard for too long on having a fixed idea or expectation that's out of line with my reality .... the effect is that it is blocking up my crown from receiving any other info:... the stiff neck is generally an inability to be swayed or flexible in your ways, to see other view points or positions. I don't have a really quick easy cure but do a lot of yoga - particularly anything that requires inverting haha downward dog, head stands, handstands, etc something about the blood rush to my head clears it ok but also talking to others the whole being flipped upside down has a way of flipping perspectives also. I know that others find release in just laying with a block under the base of their head and slowly rolling their head from side to side....

Finding out You are an Empath.


Empath

Hi @khairi welcome to the life of an empath! All of what your describing is normal for most of us. There's lots of awesome resources out there for you to learn from so make sure you check out the different topics on this site to get you started. Yes you need to cleanse crystals - this can be done a lot of ways- under a full moon is awesome, just leave them out and Luna will work her magic. I take mine to the beach quite frequently and just leave them in a mesh bag in the water for a few minutes. Attach an intention to this - ie have it clear in your minds eye that your crystals are being cleaned of any energetic buildup etc if you cannot get to the beach - mix up salt water with Epsom salts - great for you also if you can add this to your bath.... just a couple of ways to start. 

Shielding needs to be practiced. A lot. It can take a while. But if you are highly anxious it will make it difficult. Try some releasing and grounding techniques and also check out guided meditations on these on YouTube. There's some great ones available. But practice practice practice and you'll get it and then can move to the next part... 

your last question - can something attach to you? Yes.

What Are Your Favorite Crystals?

1neWhoknowz:

There is no good attached to that stone as soon as Iooked at it my heart dropped. have you been experiencing illness of any sort? if you have it is related to this stone. Take it to the desert and leave it! My best Advice!


Aryi, please PM with other impressions. I did a google search and the creature is called Tiddalik the Frog. I'm not the aboriginal expert here and just trying to help or you may wish to go private with renee. I also picked up on the "take it to the dessert and bury it" to get rid of the thing. Glad you've confirmed. Not water, hot and dry.

Funny that you associate this stone with tiddalik particularly after how the thread seems to have gone.... the moral of the tiddalik story is "laughter is the key to making light in a bad situation...."

 good luck with it all, I was only asking about the stone @rene as I hadn't seen one so was interested as to whether it was opal like or sandstone as well as interested in how it had been obtained
