Please Take An Empath Poll...


Empath

I can't remember very many times in my life of ever getting legitimate good sleep. For the last 2 and half decades I have lived off of 4-6 hours of sleep nightly. I have LOTS of lucid dreaming, strange dreams etc... when I do get too sleep. My body for as long as I can remember has been timed to be a night owl.

How do you see yourself?


Empath

Well I have no problem answering as it is the only way to heal and move on from toxic self image by acknowledging it accepting it vocalizing it and moving on. I have had terrible issues in my life with self image and inner issues as well with emotions and such as many of us do. I still fight the battle of convincing me that me is beautiful and worth something to someone some where on a companionship level. I have had serious issues with intimacy at times in life because of it (battling being overweight my whole life). I am finally at an age where I am just beginning to accept and forgive myself (been a long time coming). Also I get a great deal of enjoyment helping others but at times it seems so taxing especially when EVERYONE flocks to you even when you dont want it for advice, love, healing etc... Now that part is over with lol. The other part of this question... Hmmmm .... Well I guess in short see myself as a mix of a little bit of everything. I love a good party though drinking is getting to be a bit much for me (the recovery is quite painful these days and the feeling it gives me is horrific on an internal and spiritual level). I totally am into music but am tired of all this cookie cutter garbage that's mass produced by the brain wash/rot mass media with all the symbolism. I am what you would call a mix of Goth, Redneck, Urban LOL I love Country, Rockabilly, Psychobilly, Punk, some Metal, Industrial, Darkwave, Synthy techno, some Rap and R&B stuff sometimes.... I EXTREMELY love Motorcycles, Hot Rods/Rat Rods and the outdoors stuff like fishing and hunting (though in last few years I have gotten way out of control on my weight due to a slump and don't get out much now). I am a serious extrovert and tend to be in the middle of everything whether for good or bad it seems sometimes as I have a great love for people and social interactions (when I am not having a bad spot in life). I am also a big fan of tattoos and such (I have over 50 of them). When I am not reading about things in the news from various places around the world or studying researching things that fascinate me (paranormal, supernatural, psychic phenomena) I am gaming to my hearts content to try and detach from all this nastiness going on in the world at times. I have done and love all types of gaming. L.A.R.P. , CCG, Table Top, PC, Console you name it.... I have gamed it probably LOL Also, I am a dog lover....total dog freak LOL Though my attitudes towards many things in and among those loves and hobbies is changing the more I "wake up" to the world around me and the reality of the "illusion" we are force fed to accept and "like" or "believe". So, as time goes on I find my self rapidly changing in some aspects but completely keeping my idea and loves for other hobbies and habits. As I approach my mid 30's I am aware this is one of many transitional times in my life so I expect much more adventure awaits lol. Well.... thats me in a nutshell I guess LOL ... A very big nutshell ... I am sure there is more I am just not thinking of it right now

Picking things up through touch


Empath

Well in my experience I find that sometimes there is just no controlling it or if there is it takes a great deal of practice and dedication and can take years to master the on and off of it. I know some are stronger and always in "on" mode where others it comes and goes. I for years tried to ignore it or pretend it isnt real or for fool hardy superstition mixed with certain belief systems tried to avoid using or controlling it once I was "hip" to whats going on (fear of opening myself up to entities etc.. etc..). So, unfortunately I am a novice still in practice at least though I have read a great deal on it over the years. The only thing I ever got good at was in my teens to my early twenties and that was the negative side of it I did naturally and I avoid that at all costs (forcing my energy and will on others or taking their energy to weaken them to do or give me what I want). The bad or negative side comes so naturally during those years. The truly challenging part is learning to control or stabilize it on the positive or neutral day to day side of things. I get affected so easily by people and their baggage like you were saying. It totally throws me off sometimes and mucks up my own energy or feelings. I personally practice constant conditioning of the mind and willpower over my self and feelings for me. I try to tell myself (especially if I know beforehand) this isn't me or my feelings I AM not going to own them. I then envision my self casting them away safely or hold on to them till I can cast them away safely if possible (by safely casting I mean releasing in to the atmosphere or mentally picturing it going in to the earth to be recycled in to positive flow without letting it out where it may harm others). This accompanied by shielding can help for me personally. I try to practice using a shield that holds off most of the energy but allows enough to get a read on them and what they are feeling. Sort of picturing a shield all around with tiny little holes like a strainer. With these things said, I believe the more deeply you are connected to a person the harder it is to manage the infringement on your own emotions and vice versa yours on them. This can make for a very challenging environment. I struggle with it daily with my parents the older they get and more emotionally complicated they get with the age. Especially since I have many reasons to believe one if not both are also sensitives who are completely UNAWARE of what they are and can do positive and negatively. You will get better with practice over time it will eventually not be so overwhelming. I hope you can get something good out of all this rambling I am doing LOL! Have a nice Day/Night :D

Amazing, terrifying, wondrous and peculiar dreams.


Dreams

So my entire life since I was a child I have had crazy dreams from all ends of the spectrum to terrifying to down right bizarre and wonderful and everywhere in between. Now, when I dream it is in FULLLLL clarity most of the time. I mean I see absolutely as clear as I do when I am awake and are REAL as awake even if I know it's a dream while having it. I can influence the dream and make decisions and some times control it or maybe others only influence a minor few things. I have also seen future events sometimes minor sometimes a little more major. Here lately though I have dreams over and over over other realities where I am me and all my friends are there but it is just DIFFERENT..... Like I am seeing other Earths..... That's the only way I can explain it. Sometimes the worlds are fractured like apocalyptic or post apocalyptic.... Other times it will like that but I get the feeling that's just how "this version" is and it is normal and not really apocalyptic aside from my mind from this reality perceiving it while I am there. Other times weird things happen I feel are messages but interpretations is so hard it's hard to say. Like last night in one I was in an alternate "Earth" and someone was handling and capturing snakes at his location we were at and we fell and he dropped a Cobra and I fell as well. When I sat up the cobra struck me in the left eye and you can feel these things as real as can be. It was quite traumatic at first but I took over mentally calmed down shook it off took what i believe to be that realities antivenin and cleared out my eye socket (very weird feeling but calm) and got any excess venom out and realized it had no effect on me.... Well aside from loss of the eye. Extraordinary ability to take the bite was emphasized to be supernatural but seemed normal to everyone else as they were from that reality.... just wacky.... Sorry I am carrying on I just dont know where else to discuss these things or if others even dream like this all the time like myself.

Picking things up through touch


Empath

Well for me I have always felt before contact the energy but to better assess I always used a pat on the back or shoulder or hand on the arm and shoulder or hug of a friend or a girl i liked. I just always thought everyone felt that connection. Then as I get older and learned about various subjects like psychics and empaths and various gifts I realized what I had been doing. I seemed to just "know" what it was. I then honed it (tried to do it ethically) using the ability on loved ones. You WILL know when it happens trust me. Example scenario: I go see my mother and she is sad faced and radiating energy of a darker oppressive or sad kind and know somethings up just walking in the room feeling it. If I then walk up and hold her hand or hug and address her with initiating with eye contact (it helps) I can feel just how deep it is and in some cases what the source of the sadness, anguish etc.. is. This is exceptionally strong feeling with loved ones and close people and makes it easier to practice as it is way stronger feeling and helps to discern easier.

Picking things up through touch


Empath

I am extremely touch orientated. It helps me to literally "get a handle on things" lol In all seriousness though it really does have an amplification effect on any desired information i wish to project or receive. I have done it so long all my life that now that I am awakened to the implications of it's meanings and why I done it for years it is hard to not do it by habit. I don't want to infringe on others or be infringed upon either. This ability through touch can be alarming on one end of the spectrum and on the other hand it can be used in negative ways as well. Because of this you kinda have to be aware of those around you as you may have someone who is a hands "on" type person much like I tended to be and am still guilty without realizing it sometimes. They may not realize they take your energy or impose energy/willpower on you through things as subtle as eye contact and a pat on the back or handshake or a touch to get your attention or convey a message or idea. With all this said it can def help you pick up on and convey or take on unwillingly many types of energy or emotions. This is my personal experience though others experiences or as they say "mileage may vary". With that said have a nice night/day :D Hope I was able to tell you something of value.

Ripped apart .


Empath

I know the feeling and it eats me alive some days to the point living really is a drain it feels and it manifests in physical ways of various kinds and can even feel painful.... I think a shower as hot as you can stand it is wonderful and wash with a soap or shampoo that has a really pleasant smell. Treat it like a walking meditation kind of just let all the worries and such go in one side and out the other in your consciousness and picture yourself washing it away. Also it sounds silly and is sort of an escape so it can be harmful if you become addicted to it.... But playing a video game with a light fun goofy sort of design is cool. It helps to take my mind off the dwelling if it is a game I love. Also of course there is normal meditations as well as grounding and cleansing. Maybe get some crystals to aid you if you don't have any. Also as goofy as it sounds it impacts me deeply to watch anything funny on youtube for example like puppies and cats and animals and such doing silly or cute things..... It really helps to lighten the load so to speak. If you have a dog I recommend just hugging the dog and thinking of the unconditional love and energy you have together and just rub and pet the animal and close your eyes and picture your energies cleaning each other up with love. I know it also sounds crazy LOL But gosh... It works wonders for me... My dog really is like a battery of love for me he is amazing and just takes my negative energy from me like a filter and it seems to bother him not all.... He actually seems to love it when we hang and love on him .... Hope some of this can help you in some way in the future......I am sorry you felt bad :( I will send good vibes your way :)

Energy/Aura I see anyone else see the same?


New Age

I can see a similar "field" thing around EVERYHTING in existence.... It is faintly clearish maybe a hint of whiteness/bluishness to it.... field of energy around all things....sometimes I can see it BIG TIME.... I am not sure what it is and not many speak of it....I am not sure if it is the electro magnetic field of all things which is said to exist or what... not sure.... It is like that more so on some people or animals than on objects per se... The field is really strong on myself...Then coming off of it I see some colors VERY faintly like red or blue or yellow green etc and they blend but I can BARELY see them compared to the other "field" I see...

Absorbing Energies


Empath

Well yes I have VERY EXTREME feelings emotions and energy from them. Horror if it has LEGIT occult negative stuff and symbolism I get very sick feeling and nervous and "Driven Away" feeling. If it is comedy/drama and the moment is REALLY embarrassing I am eaten alive with embarrassment and nerves to the point I can't listen or look sometimes .... If it is a drama love story type of thing and has sad or happy moments I can become overcome with love or sadness to the point I am driven to tears... As with action like you I can get hyped and driven to the point I feel refreshed or intense. At times it can tuin a whole night or day or throw me off for a bit or make me feel great depending on the movie. Books can affect me as well but not so much as movies or T.V.

Thoughts on sensing versus stealing energy?


Empath

In my experience it is very rare anyone steals without knowing it. In most cases where someone is stealing unawares of what they are doing but it is still happening on a subconscious level they just don't realize it. With that said as an empath 9 out of 10 times you will not steal so much as you will feel, process, and manifest in your own emotion and energy. Then you can choose to work it, cast it off or process or if you were malicious with INTENT and steal it. I have learned that actual energy manipulation and theft is a very conscious thing and done with FULL intent of doing so at least in my experience. When I was a teen before I learned to control it and before I knew what it was about I was a very lost soul. I knew I was sensitive to people feelings and thoughts and emotions and can read them but I felt their feelings too in turn feeling bad and taking on their emotions and energies. I began to learn how to control my environment (not in a good way though). I found out with my ability to project energy and WILLPOWER and INTENT I can have what I want when I want it many times. I learned that with my emotion+intent+willpower I could reach out, create an energy/emotion in others and then feed off it and get feeling better. Heck I even learned to get others to give me their stuff occasionally if they were easily influenced and had week willed. Kind of like charming them and adding a little will manipulation. Jedi Mind Trick so to speak. This was horrible and the lifestyle left me with a darkness I still am shedding off me today as I learn to live love and heal others and myself. This was a dark and bad time in my life and regret it deeply. What I can say though is that any "taking/stealing" was done with FUULLLL intent in doing so. It was terrible as I began to feed on dark emotions like depression and anger and hate as well as happiness. This started to leave a nasty taint on me on my insides on my spirit so to speak. I could not ever live like that again as it was very damaging as it was rewarding. The mental and emotional damage is does to ones mind set is equally bad as it is to the spirit. Shielding is great to practice or learn to use your force of will for good defense instead and to defend. Just remember that the will is a weapon for negativity as much as it is for defense and is a fine line between the 2. Psychic attacks and energy attacks from psychic vampires/malicious sensitives are VERY obvious when they occur usually. You will know who they are the moment you get in their proximity as most don't hide it or can't. The average person don't sense them usually so they have no need to hide. You will be a beacon to them and will feel the drain and stifling feeling from them. They can make you feel sick, confused, lethargic, head ache etc... Or just force will on you and try and control you via energy and mind by manipulating your will via theirs with emotions and thought suggestion. Now an actual psychic attack vs psychic vampirism can be different as well. Common tactics of psychic vampirism are seen in people who are centers of attention or very flirty or sociopathic or narcissistic. The generally incite an emotion by threats, statements, flirts, and even sex or outright violence. You will know because you will feel the genuine manipulation or drain on you when they get in to it. Now their are some out there who can via pure energy do a psychic attack. This is different than the "vampires" though. These people are way more advanced and can do it over greater distance with little to know direct interaction with you on a physical level. Heck sometimes they dont even have to be close to you. When they walk in the room they can just emit a oppressive force or darkness and stifle you and most likely will sense you instantly. They can incite confusion, fear etc... by eye sight and will/energy alone. Some can even do it across great distances by thought and meditation. Again this is just in my experiences and what I have learned. I am sure the range of things is much greater. Negative sensitive people have as many unique manifestations of their "gift" as we do on the opposite end of the spectrum and everywhere in between. I know the more in the "light" and loving strong mindset you are with practiced defense you are way less likely to be affected if at all aside from the general you feel it and know its around. Like with someone who says smart remarks shield/block and ignore them when possible they will leave you alone as it becomes draining to them to pursue you with no reward.

empaths and your parents; some questions for you.


Empath

I believe in the closest possible open loving relationship with ones family and BFF's. I have always been told that if you are an empath without a doubt one of you parents are too or grand parents. With that said, I believe both my parents are sensitives of some sort. My mother I KNOW is an empath she just picks up on everything like me. She will wake up and just fall apart crying for no reason and just know someone somewhere close is hurting. Every time I feel sick with anxiety at the same time it's quite challenging. She has never really considered herself a sensitive/empath so she has no control or practice at her emotions leaving her open to ALL influences unfortunately. She is really sweet and loving but can be sharp and snappy too and is very sensitive to other people and cannot stomach witnessing suffering of any kind. I live in and take care of her and my father around the house as they just retired and she is bed ridden now. So I take on all their BAGGAGE even if I don't want too :( My Father is the kind of guy who is also easily affected by energies. But, this is also something he never recognized so grew up trying to hide his sweet sensitive caring energy and his sensitivity to outside influences. He tries to act like he cares about no one or anything and can turn his back on his family in a second if he so chose and they slighted him enough to make him do it. On the other hand when he aint putting on his "Darth Vader" act I catch him laugh crying at almost EVERYTHING he watches on tv. He worries about people and tries to do nice things and when someone hurts or suffers he feels it pretty deeply. The moment anyone notices these things though he instantly goes sociopath and crazy "Darth Vader" mode. He thinks he will be perceived as weak if he doesnt :(

This makes him and my mother a constant ROLLERCOASTER day in and day out. When someone gets mad or offended they tend to use their force of will and domineering energy on each other or me around the house. I am constantly in a state of anxiety or sickness sometimes especially when a crisis is afoot. Always trying to work the energies and mediate between them and myself in to a positive direction. This is all day every day work and taxing and extremely stress full. Sometimes the energy and discontent is so deep I can feel it thick in the room like humid hot air. But we also have lovely family nights and I foster happy feelings and togetherness and the concept of forgiveness and love with them as much as possible. It is working too and it makes me very happy and proud. I have them both aware now off their "Sensitivity" and not losing their minds and going "Darth Vader" over every little thing. They are some of my best friends on this planet I love them dearly.

Social media?


Empath

Social media is become (especially in my experience) nothing but a distraction and is actually very harmful. It is an outlet for people to let their ego run rampant and for sociopaths, psychos and narcissists to lure people in for the "attack". On top of all that it is definitely a platform for spreading ideas (some good and some bad) that can have an effect of ones free will or decision making. As others have stated for people like us it is extra harmful at times because of energy and emotion that can be taken on or moved to feel over a distance. I have watched it lead many in to different compromising situations in many relationships as well as foster attitudes and mind sets based in deception and subterfuge against fellow humans and in many cases fellow humans that are close to them. Also it takes away the human connections that are essential in contacting each other in person. Just not much good at all in social media currently in it's form right now. The cons FAR outweigh the pros of having it. I only maintain mine because of it's to communicate with a few people now and again that are not near to me where I live. I have been debating my self on whether or not to delete it honestly.

Sadly this world has a lot of "service to self" people within it. Sadly culture more and more especially western is "engineered" through media etc... to keep it so. This is how they keep us divided and consuming subconsciously. This is the true beauty of free will, and that is that we can choose to end this cycle on an individual basis. This is the only way I think it can change is by example and by denying the force fed reality we are presented with. I personally believe we enslave ourselves by letting these outside influences mold our perceptions. There still is love and there still is people who try and focus on service to others mentality and heart. I try an look at it like this: The world as a whole is a fabricated reality engineered towards herding us the many to enrich the few at a terrible cost to the many which spills over into day to day lives of the masses. We don't have to accept that. What we do have to accept is that we can show love and kindness but still be reserved and protected against the harshness levied against us as it is unavoidable. The hard part is not letting it tarnish us internally and be absorbed into the larger whole that become twisted up. I think it is imperative that those of us with gifts work hard to shed light and kindness and love and companionship as beacons and examples of service to others. Even if it appears to be to our detriment at times. This is the only way we as a whole can move forward. This as a whole is how we can work with the children and stop it before it over rides them. We are creatures of the flesh and of the senses so yes it is easy to see what looks to be self serving nature in most but that is over written in the hearts and minds. I believe we must first fix it there for us to then show it outwardly in action and word. We have have countless generations of HEAVILY programmed behaviors to over write and it will become hard and overwhelming and seemingly hopeless when addressing and seeing it as a whole. But, everyone does actually make a difference on an individual level. Every word and action out of our mouths and in our deeds affects someone at some point very deeply even if it isn't apparent right away. We must not let ourselves be overwhelmed and push on forward not letting any slights against us keep us from living better lives and in the process making the lives better for others who may see eventually. Hope they pay it forward as well. The one thing I am absolutely sure of is that humankind LOVES more deeply and whole hearted than any other creature I have witnessed and when one does it over rides all other things within us. Sadly though we can also be very devastating. Sorry for rambling or if I offend anyone with any of this and I hope everyone here has a wonderful day in spite of any hurdles we have. God Bless

Are shielding techniques counter productive?


Empath

Well in my experience it can be both beneficial and counter productive. On the one hand if you don't use it you leave yourself wide open and if not really prepared can really be over run with problems mentally and emotionally. This can even be harmful to your well being or at least has been so for me. Also, using them too much allows us to stay closed off and we don't learn much and foster our ability to discern and learn from differences in outside energies and discerning them from our own. This has at least been in my experience. I think like anything in life a healthy balance of using and not using it and discerning when it is appropriate is key in my opinion. Have a nice day!!!

True Intentions


Psychic and Paranormal

I definitely have had this my whole life. When I was a teenager (shame on me) I used these abilities to manipulate people and get what I wanted. As I have grown older I have gotten to where on a good day I can all but read minds it seems sometimes. Because of their energy and "the knowing" of intuition I can tell at least what they are thinking or leaning towards thinking. On a side note it is also very disturbing sometimes picking up on people with VERY BAD intentions.

Shielding?


Empath

Well shielding is pretty common. Most common technique is picturing yourself surrounded in a bubble of light. Then there are few other techniques. Now with that said the 3d thing I spoke of you are the only other peson I have ever met who does this besides me. LOL To be honest I thought I was the only one. When I first learned of shielding I thought to myself, "hmmmm if it is about picturing energy I can do this as well as an offensive form of defense if it is all based on picturing things in my head." I may be wrong since I know you now do it too but I think it may not be a common thing and others may do something similar. Why no one else commented whose to say? I am not sure. It isn't odd or weird that I know of. lol Anyways if it works keep up the good work :D Hone it, fine tune it, and make it a second nature so when in need it never fails. I imagine for each person it may be a little different but if something works and gets results go for it!

Shielding?


Empath

I know there is various forms of shielding and all are based on visualization. I know I out of instinct if I feel a force or energy near me or approaching and it is bad or oppressive I send out as you said 3D visualizations of arms or hands or whole body manifestations of my self. They appear as light "constructs" to me and I picture myself taking hold of or forcing them back or out much like a bouncer at a bar so to speak. I try to vocalize within or out loud my intent as to what I declare of them. Seems to work for me as well. I think it is just natural instinct of your gift to be honest.

I have found many times it is as simple as they are subconsciously picking up on your "gifts" and because they themselves are sensitive in some manner but don't realize it they just a get a foreign or odd feeling that makes them uncomfortable. As creature who usually tend to go against or fear what we don't understand it makes people act out or turn away from us. Also way back (about 8 years ago) when I was in turmoil myself I was broadcasting seriously oppressive or stifling energy and did not even realize this. It took a sensitive in the workplace to come up and reveal herself and then tell me to take it down a notch i was invading her personal energy from across the building! LOL Anyways, you may be broadcasting something and not even know it whether good or bad. If they are sensitive too but don't realize it they may just be turned away or off by it due to lack of awareness understanding. Furthermore, as some others have stated they may know you can pick up on them and are fully aware and that may equally be intimidating for them. When I was teen I was aware of "gifts" I had but had no clue what they were called or what the implications and responsibilities were. Unfortunately I was wide open and as a direct result I learned to weaponize my gifts by force of will or energy manipulation to control things in my favor get what I wanted. I got to where I did subconsciously and didn't even realize sometimes. When I felt someone who could read me it bothered me a lot. I seriously regret all them times I done that and now that I know what comes with all this I strive to only help as much as possible and when people actually ask for it. Regret all them troubled years deeply but at the same time realize how important of a learning experience this was during them years. Ok done rambling ... lol Anyways what I am getting at is sometimes you may pick up on someone like I used to be....who don't know what to do when they pick up on you so rather they put up their defense or avoid you all together.

Seeing lights


Empath

I see lights at times they are definitely intelligent moving of their own accord and I see the min front of me and sometimes out of the corner of my vision. I have even had one land on me and "slide" down the profile of my chest once and out of my vision. These particular lights though dont look like electricity but look more like a little tiny bb or pin dot of light with a tail or tracer coming off of it. They startle the crap out of me. Not bad feelings though just surprise me at times. I wish I knew what it meant as well.

heightened senses after/during embracing my empathy for the first time


Empath

I have always kind of known I was different and experienced many things my whole life. When I started embracing it I had an EXTREME amount of things happen in much more severity though. But I also started meditating and trying to balance and be more aware. With that my physical feelings amplified as well as environmental and things i noticed around me. There was definitiely more obvious stuff as well as I was looking for what it all meant and noticed more now that I was listening looking and FEELING. I am only just now slowly finishing accepting and understanding all this myself over last few years. Before that I was kinda on autopilot

Yes I feel out of sorts more often than I'd like too. It almost always is like that on big weather changes for me as well. Also, I can feel things leading up to things but don't realize it till its happened and realize I had anxiety or hopelessness or blah feelings on the lead up. I am for the first time learning to listen to it and understand it. Find out my intuitions and feelings and what they correlate with. I too just know things for some reason out of no where or feel something coming before it goes off so to speak. Usually If I am out of sorts and it seems not to have a reason I will call friends and family. just to be sure I am not picking up on someone and try to be conscious of it how it felt and a way to sever the connection if it is overwhelming or help if needed. Heck sometimes I will feel off and look in the news and something crazy and/or traumatic has happened. Just some food for thought on reasons it may happen. It's a little different I suppose for each individual. But, I know some things are more common amongst many of us. Hope you feel better soon and if possible go with the flow and see if there is something to learn out of it. Sorry to ramble :) Have a nice evening/day and hope you feel better.

Is dating a non empath a recipe for disaster?


Empath

Absolutely true ^^^^ If it feels good give it a go. Love and good connections are rare and special and can come in any form. Hate for you to miss out.

Is dating a non empath a recipe for disaster?


Empath

Well in my experience dating a wide open empath or living with a wide open empath is actually much worse than a normal person as far as the emotional roller coasters and even in some cases "attacks" of will or energy even subconsciously when angry or in disagreement. You must have to be well in tune and have awesome discernment to keep from taking on others emotions from each other. This is true for me at least. It's double taxing because I have to discern my emotions from their emotions and then filter through all the above and find whats not from outsiders and is our real emotions as well. LOL that was a mouthful to say. With all this said, I think non empaths are wonderful and in most cases less taxing IF they don't turn out to be Sociopaths or Psychopaths or something. Aside from that the only other fear is that they hopefully won't accuse you of being evil or into evil things by your practices or are weird. That's what I find is the most common thing for people like us.

What do empaths do for a living?


Empath

This was one of my dreams before I got discouraged :( I was half way through or so on a bachelors in psych. I wanted to be a addictions counselor. Seems the older I get the more sensitive I become and makes me second guess this kind of work. It sounds like it is very demanding for us. I bet it feels wonderful to see someone helped though.

What do empaths do for a living?


Empath

I did phone work for most of my career. Like (horrible) Telemarketing and Tech support. Every time I took on a new job it was horrific because the stress levels are so high on top of raging jerks on the phone people like us stay in a constant state of turmoil :( I would luckily get so good at it I could relax and make people happy sometimes and it would be manageable part of the time. My last major job of around 3 or so years I mastered and could stay in control of situations and help people with little to know incident. My ex left me and I got laid off around the same time withing a year or less of each other and it got very rough needless to say. My next and last job was so bad and so horrific an such a rollercoaster of emotions lies and negative energies I quit. I woke up everyday and got to where I was sick and shaking with anxiety before I even clocked in :( It was doing tech support for Comcast with some sales on the side. That was the last straw for me I was just too sensitive to things on top of my own issues I had to quit. I could feel peoples rage and discontent through the phone on top of the verbal insults. My parents retired and had some issues and asked me to come stay with them and help out and I have done that since. I need to find ways to make money from home as well now it would be greatly helpful. Now if I can just figure out what to do :P

Not exactly sure what to do :)


Empath

Like wise thank you! I am really considering some crystals to aid in all of this. I feel I may benefit greatly. Some say get certain crystals for certain things and others say to fell them first and see if you vibe with them so I am not sure what to do as far as they go :(

Empath

You know you are very right. Helping someone must be consentual. Some may not want our help while others may desire it and be in dire need. When I first started to consciously use my abilities I had a few people be alarmed or confused about my intentions about my helping when I just did it versus offered. Some even offended :( If you are like me at all as I am new somewhat as well sometimes you just do it subconsciously without even thinking sometimes just take on the feelings and emotions and energy like on autopilot... I get really overwhelmed :( I find good ways to filter this is light and/or deep meditations and depending on your belief system maybe some prayer as well. I was so happy to learn about grounding and flushing. Grounding and flushing do well to deal with the energy we take on from others. I am yet to try and use some crystals in aiding but I hear they work well for many. Sometimes in day to day life you may come across someone who is harmful to people like us. I here crystals can help along side shielding.

Is It Just Me Who Attracts Narcissists/ Sociopaths?


Empath

Yes it is common for me at least. I think there are many of them who are consciously or sub consciously even psychic "vampires". We are like all you can eat buffets for them without shielding and some good grounding. They use romance or demanding friend ships and relationships as a vehicle for "hunting" it seems. Sadly some do not even realize it or think it is acceptable behaviors and we can tend to wanna help or "fix" by nature. Or so it is for me at least at times.. I am trying to learn when to say no and realize not everyone is my responsibility.

Any empaths have digestive problems?


Empath

I can say that for myself and my mother who is very sensitive as well that anxiety can eat your digestive system alive so to speak. For us it is almost constant sometimes if tensions or sadness or anxiety or emotional turmoil is in the house hold or very near by. For example if say my father has an issue or freak out session like he does from time to time it will light me up head to toe with anxiety. I get almost instantly sick at my stomach with a very unique kind of feeling and it can become painful even. It can sometimes affect me all day or even "days" if someone close to me is in a crisis of any kind. It can do alot of damage and lead to serious conditions if left unchecked. My poor mother didnt realize she was an empath for years and has become a digestive wreck so to speak and it has made her life very miserable. I am just now learning myself about chakras and how this gift works. I just always thought for years this is just how it is and nothing can be done :(

What do you think triggered your empathic abilities?


Empath

I have felt and used my abilities as far back as I can remember. I was a 10 yr old and my friends mom would just dump all her feeling and baggage on me like I was her counselor. She was just drawn to me and I could feel her indecisivesness or anxiety. It was quite odd really her discussing her adult issues with me but I just seemed to understand her for some reason and would oddly give her advice I just "knew" she needed to move on. I can always remember feeling the other kids around me and when in distress I could feel their vulnerability or sorrow. It was just kind of always there.... I dont think I ever had an "awakening" so to speak. I suppose there was a traumatic experience or 2 I had but I have no memory of them at all. Only what my parents told me happened. I can only remember back to a certain point and then its like there is nothing. Maybe this is what caused it I suppose. My mother is also an extremely sensitive person as well so I just assumed it is something I inherited via genetics. I didn't accept that I had a gift for years and just assumed I was "broken" as the older I got and didnt know what was going on it got to where I took on everyone's issues and I would get to where I was in a constant state of turmoil emotionally and could not tell whose emotions I was feeling I just always accepted they were mine. That lead me to very dark and painful times in my life.I also learned to "weaponize" or turn things in my favor as a natural defense to what I was bombarded with on a spiritual and emotional level when I was in my teens. I feel horrible for it. I regret it so much. I also learned to take others energies to feel better also as a defense. I just seemed to just do it naturally and sometimes in hind sight subconsciously. As I grew older and became more "aware" I have came to feel terrible and regret it and am still learning to heal the damage I caused to myself and others. Be conscious of what I do and try to not be "invasive to anyone and at the same time to not let anyone be invasive on me and allow free will to flourish. Learning to make things consentual. I have learned also that helping or loving someone with our gift can be equally invasive. I dont want to hurt anyone or do anything negative to anyone ever again. I just wanna live and love people and help others to do so and have quality life experiences. Only recently in the past few years have I taken this serious and decided to accept it, love it, understand it and hone it and learn about it. I have this longing to just help people. It's like I am driven to do so. I feel this is a gift from God and it needs to be used for good and service to others as much as possible. sorry I kind of rambled there :P This is nice to have like minded people who understand or want to learn to understand these things.
