Have you told anyone about your ability?


Empath

For most of my life I thought I was just weird. I'd realized most people weren't like me, and the people I'd tried to tell about my abilities, when I was young, didn't understand. Then, this woman I'd met, who was a nurse. Mentioned that maybe I was an Empath. So I looked the term up, and found that I wasn't alone in what I felt and saw in others. This woman isn' an Empath and isn't really into spiritual or paranormal topics. It rely surprised me that she knew about empaths and couldn't say where she'd heard about them when I asked. But she's easy to talk to and is open to talking about the abilities and experiences. Lots of people are so skeptical, so turned off to anything that isn't what they see as normal. So people open to it, and sites like this are good.

How important is your diet


Empath

Well, the industrial medical system in place in the western world says nutrition plays a tiny part in health and well being. But if looked at logically, diet certainly does play a part in developing physical and mental abilities. Personally I feel that empathic abilities have to be affected by our diets. I don't believe any one regimen, or diet will work for everyone. Just like medication. What might work for me, might not work for you. I'm fairly sure foods are the same way.

Views On LGBT+ In The Spiritual Community


Empath

I look at it the same way. I don't label people, its all about what kind of person they are. Back in the '90's I worked in restaurants, and there were many lgbt people I worked with. What I observed was a lot of them seemed to follow some pretty unhealthy lifestyle choices. By that I mean, many would go to bars and take all sorts of drugs, hook up with random people etc.. Many also seemed to get a kick out of cheating on their partner. I know that not everyone is like this. But enough were that I noticed it. It was like a cultural trend, locally at least. Honestly though, I don't judge them. If they want to live that way, go for it. I've just always thought that was interesting.I live on the south as well, and many here do judge based on sexual preference or skin color.

I see the selfishness and narcissism and uncaring attitude so many people express as being pushed onto them by popular media, the entertainment industry and even politicians. I don't know why this is being done. But I've been noticing it for a while now.

Warning: intese emotions.


Empath

If he treats you badly, no matter why, then it's bad for you, the relationship. Years ago I fell for someone who was broken. She couldn't really love because of some bad stuff that happened to her when she was young. I tried to make it work, I tried to change for her and adapt to her changing needs. In the end, despite how much I loved her, I had to just sever the bond. It sucks, but in the long run, you'll be happier.If he truly cares, he will realize what happened, what he did and he will change. People can change, but it's not easy. I realize this is kind of grim and I'm sorry for that :/ You have to protect yourself though.

Sadly, yes it is everywhere. You've just got to figure out how to cope with the world, with all the people and their issues. I know it's not easy, and what works for one person might not work for another person. But there are people here who tell their stories and how they cope with the world. Maybe some of them can help?

I don't think moving will help. I live in the US too (Louisiana), and I feel the same things you describe. For so long I just walked myself off and didn't get close to anyone. But that got old after a long long time. It sounds crazy, but eventually, if you keep looking, you'll find someone who isn't fake. I'd given up looking a long time ago when I ran into someone who is real, genuine and everything I'd been missing. Sure, the world is still the same. It hasn't changed at all. But I don't care anymore. Two months ago I wouldn't have believed it, but it happened to me.I guess you've got to find a way to be yourself, be content amid all the BS and nonsense. I know that's not easy, but it's possible.

loneliness and seeking love


Empath

Well, speaking from personal experience, I'd say just trust your feelings. When you meet someone you'll get an impression of them. As you spend time with them, get to know them, you'll learn more about them, even more then normal people would because of your abilities. So just trust yourself, you will know if the relationship would be good or not. But, be truthful with yourself. I'm guilty of trying to read more into things, hoping that a relationship will be better simply because I wanted it to be rather then the reality.

Frustrated


Empath

I remember, around the age of 8-10, trying to describe what I was feeling and experiencing to my parents and some family members. I didn't know what impaths were, so that made things even more difficult. Of course no one believed me. Eventually, I just quit trying to tell people about it and kept it to myself. I wish you luck, trying to convince your spouse that you have these abilities. At least there's a lot of info online now. When I was young, the Internet hadn't been publicized and I'm sure was pretty empty.

being a newly realized empath in twin flame relationship


Empath

LaoG, I think you just had the misfortune to run into a negative entity (that person). Sure, there could have been other entities involved as well. But usually (in my experience), the evil/bad people tote a backpack full of bad stuff around with them' even if it's just negative experiences. You felt the persons personality up front. I don't have any proof of evil entities, but I've sure noticed that some people seem to radiate "bad" energy and they usually are really troubled. The two I've been unfortunate enough to have gotten involved with certainly messed my life up.It sounds like Cplove has known this person long enough that she'd feel any bad vibes or negativity around him. I mean, I wouldn't have known the term twin flame. But I'd have recognized the connection between me and someone I've met recently as something special.

being a newly realized empath in twin flame relationship


Empath

"I really have a hard time explaining the intense feelings I have when im with him. nothing bad, but mindblowing at times. the first time I saw him 2 yrs ago (after a long 10 yrs) I felt like I couldn't contain myself. I felt like I was going to bust out of my seams. my body felt crazy and uncontrolled."Haha, I know exactly what that feels like. It totally shocked me, I wasn't expecting to feel anything like that, I was blown away" so yes, I can empathize :)

being a newly realized empath in twin flame relationship


Empath

Hmmm, I just read about twin flames after reading this post (hadn't heard that term before). I've had a small group of people that have come and gone into my life since I was, oh, 19 (I'm 49 now). Of the 5, I've only been romantically involved with 2 of them. Back in the late '80', 4 of us did quite a bit of channeling and other spiritual/occult stuff (we were studying all that). We were told that this group had known each other in the past and had chosen to incarnate near each other this time. No clue whether this is true or not, but we have never remained apart for long. Not all of us are "close" friends, but we all are in touch with some members in some fashion. I know this doesn't exactly apply to twin flames, but that's what has happened to me.The idea of having a twin flame feels "right" to me. I actually think I might know one. But we have no chance of exploring it, unfortunately.

Advice on the Toxic Relationship of an Empath and an Emotional Manipulator


Empath

I think that's a wise way of looking at the situation. My parents split when I was 8. They'd tried to stay together because of me, but it didn't work. While I don't remember specific details, I do remember the tension and the dissatisfaction between them. So if you feel that it's in your child's best interests to not have contact, that's what you should do. Breaking the cycle is something I wish my parents had thought more about.

True Intentions


Psychic and Paranormal

I know this topic is old, but all of what people are saying are things I regularly experience. I can read things better from people the more I interact with them. Oddly though, if its someone I'm really interested in, I can feel what they feel and can tell a lot about what kind of person they are. But I seem to have trouble seeing what they are thinking.Has anyone ever experienced any sort of synesthesia when reading someone? Recently I met a woman that smelled like icing mixed with some kind of wild flower. It's not perfume or soap. When I'm near her I get this scent that's maddening! I just want to take her arm and smell her skin, Lol! It's happened before, but it's really rare for me.

Advice on the Toxic Relationship of an Empath and an Emotional Manipulator


Empath

Well, I can say one thing. You have NO reason to feel ashamed. Really, most people have made the mistake of getting involved with people we shouldn't have. Even if we didn't see it at the time. I know I've had relationships that people have tried to warn me about, but did I listen? Hell no. I was soooo sure that "I" could make it work. Age doesn't necessarily prevent this from happening either, sadly. I know with me, having a child really changed me a lot. It made me look at myself and what I'd been doing, the mistakes I'd made. I didn't want to have my daughter follow in my footsteps and make the same mistakes I'd made. Just forgive yourself and move on :)

Finding Love as a Male Empath but definitely want responses from the Women here too


Empath

I seem to attract manipulators as well. I've never had much luck with casual relationships. I get too emotionally tied to people I'm intimate with. I used to lose myself when I was with someone, like I wanted to be so close to them I adopted their likes and habits. As I've grown older, I've stopped doing that and it's made me happier, keeping more of myself intact when I'm with someone. I can't totally stop it though. It still happens to some degree.

Finding Love as a Male Empath but definitely want responses from the Women here too


Empath

Hey BV27,

"Is your partner an Empath?" No, not at all.

I saw this thread and it interested me because I recently met a woman with more "It" then I've ever seen. In at least 20 years of looking, I've never felt anyone more "right", more perfect for me, my personality.

The screwy thing is, I'd stopped looking years ago. I'd given up trying to find her and was convinced she didn't exist, or that I'd never meet her. She stopped me in a store. She touched my arm and said something innocuous about thinking she'd almost run into me in a parking lot earlier (we both have children in the same school). I was floored because all I felt was that she was sweet, nice, genuine, passionate and she was so full of love that she glowed with it like she was illuminated by a bright, warm light. All this and she's beautiful. Yet she doesn't flaunt it, doesn't dress to accentuate her looks and often doesn't even wear makeup. I know I'm going on and on, I could write a few pages about her, lol.

So yes, I'd say you'll know when you meet someone with "It". For me it was like being struck by lightning. She's not an Empath though. I don't know what I'd be like to get together with another Empath. Seems like it would either be paradise, or hell. Your personalities would have to match for it to last. I'd be a little afraid to meet a woman as emotional as I am! Even though I've learned how to turn my emotions down or even off, it's really difficult at times and like with the woman I'm talking about, I can't seem to completely hide all of what I'm feeling.

The thing you said about how you blend with other cultures and adopt people's accents. I didn't know that was an Empath trait. I thought it was just something I did. But it sounds exactly like what I do, so it's got to be a trait.

What Kit Kat says makes sense. Funny thing is, I like myself when I'm with this woman. I actually feel good about myself and the world when I'm near her. I know that if I'm not attracted to someone, if they aren't my "type", I can't fake it with them. It just won't work for me. I wouldn't worry too much about looking for appearance first. If you meet the right person, you'll know.

I hope some of this helps. Finding this woman has really surprised me. I'd quit looking. Mostly I'd tried to not look closely at people so I didn't have to see the negative stuff that seemed to stand out in so many people. But meeting this woman has changed me. I find that now I've been looking at people and seeing into them without it depressing me. So maybe it was me that was responsible for seeing so much negativity in others?
