are you Alone? i mean really alone.


Empath

Hi tonyvancity :-) I too have experienced a lot of abuse, bullying, neglect and rejection in my life.

I agree with goodenergyhealing, and would just like to add something that might be relevant.

As empaths, we tend to attract narcissists and other people who see us as easy prey for their own self serving games. In my mind, these people are the leeches of the spiritual/emotional world.. attaching themselves insidiously and taking our 'blood'..  by the time we are aware of their presence, they have already taken most of what they wanted, and they drop off and look for the next victim. We need to sharpen our senses and hone our tools to protect ourselves. 

Stay strong - be conscious of your own power. A kind and and gentle spirit is not necessarily weak. Nurture your strength and wrap yourself in it.

Do people affect you remotely?


Empath

 I don't always have any compulsion to contact the person, but rather to send them love and good wishes. When I do feel I need to contact them, I spend some time making sure I am grounded, and asking what they need from me. The answer almost always comes.

Having trouble with my intuition lately....


Empath

When this happens to me I know that I need to get myself grounded and centered. I find that spending time alone, particularly outside in nature, is the best way to do that. Sometimes if my energy is "scattered" or I have been feeling a lot of negatives (my own or other people's), I need to deliberately and consciously get back in touch with myself and the natural world.
Hope that helps ... sending love x

Problems with attending spiritual events


Empath

I just want to add that I agree with Lavender&rose .. 'broken' people are drawn to spiritual events, and often the practitioners are not equipped to manage the mess of energy and emotion, so it's like sitting inside a fishbowl with lightning bouncing around in every direction! I do still attend such things sometimes, but only if I am feeling strong and centred .. which kind of defeats the purpose of healing sessions I guess!

Hi Mj

Reading the title and date of your post took my breath away... I lost my 24 yo son (my only child, and an empath) 7 years ago .. his birthday is April 25. For 5 years I was lost and drowning in grief - my own, and everyone else's. I felt like I had lost my heart and soul, and nothing mattered. I was not capable of shielding or grounding myself ... until 2 years ago on the anniversary of his death, when something just shifted inside me. I had been telling myself for those 5 years that I needed to be 'well' .. I could feel him, and sometimes hear him, trying to make me be ok.. but I just didn't know how to be.

So, to answer your question, no, I can't tell you how to function in the state you are in, but please don't do what I did and drown in the sorrows of the world - your own grief is enough for you to manage. Use whatever methods and techniques work for you to stay shielded and grounded, and listen to your daughter .. I bet she is telling you that she is ok, and that she needs you to be as well. I know Ryan was, and finally, somehow, he got through to me at a soul level, and now I am taking care of myself and feeling like 'me' again. I can feel his relief and love .. I'll never be 'over it', which is ok.. give yourself permission and space to feel that awful, desperate grief, but take care not to become overwhelmed by the extent of grief in the world.

I don't know if any of that is any help or comfort ... sending you love and strength xxx

Shadows / Dark beings in dreams and "groping insides" type of feeling


Empath

Hi Jonathan

I hope you don't mind me barging in boots and all, but I really feel that I need to tell you this... the nightmare shadow creatures and the clawing and groping at your insides are all of the hurts and disappointments that you have shoved away in the depths of your soul since you were a child. They have grown strong and angry because you hid them away, even from yourself.. they needed to be acknowledged and let go, and only you can do that. If you try to keep them locked away, the nightmares are only the beginning of what you will suffer .. they will make you sick and weak, physically and spiritually. and then they will escape anyway. Better to do now what you know, as an empath, that you need to do. Get grounded and centred, and give yourself permission to let go of all the pain, the guilt, the disappointment and despair. Once they are gone, you will be able to feel peace, for the first time in your life. ..... I know, because I had to do it myself.

Hi there

Yes! I have always gotten electric shocks from car doors, shopping trolleys, metal cabinets ... and in all the reading I've done about empaths in the last couple of years, nobody has mentioned this as a trait/symptom, whatever you want to call it... it's just large metal objects, not electrical appliances, but I remember when I was growing up, being very careful around electrical things, because my mother always had trouble with them - we used to laugh that she 'blew things up'.. they would either just stop working, short out (in a shower of sparks), or start behaving oddly. My (close) female cousin has strange effects on electronics - she's banned from using any of our computers! lol ... I wonder if I have intuitively learned to shield myself from electricity.

I'm a CHRISTIAN and I believe with all my heart in CHRIST and I have this Gift!


Empath

Hi Martha

I too am a firm Christian - I spent a year at Bible College, trying to figure out how this 'gift' fits in with God''s plan. It does.. perfectly :-) Churches are man's invention, not God's.. Jesus taught from a fishing boat, on the banks of a river, under a tree, in his friends' houses... fellowship is important, but attending a church is not. There is a huge spiritual awakening going on, and I believe God has led each of us to right where we need to be, to use the gifts he's given us to heal and comfort, just as Jesus did. It is our responsibility to learn how to control and use the gift wisely and with love, and to take care of ourselves and each other.

I'm very happy to have found other Christians here :-)

Many blessings

Seeing shadows/ hearing noises


Empath

Hey there :-)

I get that 'volume' thing sometimes too ... and other times it's like everything just went up in pitch..

The shadows could be a few different things ... sometimes emotions and sensations are so close and urgent that they almost seem physically present .... you may be able to sense the presence of spirits (usually, I've found that just acknowledging them is enough to quieten them) ... I have experienced the palpable presence of events that have occurred in particular places (not sure how else to put that into words!)... anyway - if I am centred and grounded, they are not so intrusive...

Hope some of that makes sense!

Hey Jessica :-)

I have only just joined this community, but have been reading and figuring out a fair bit by myself ... what a wonderful thing to find all these people who don't think I'm crazy!

All the 'symptoms' you describe are familiar to me, and probably to many others here... the voices (like a radio or a quiet conversation in the next room) had me convinced I was losing it! Have you looked at the Empath Survival Program on Elise LeBeau's page? ... https://www.eliselebeau.com/empath-survival-program/technique-1 ... Very helpful information :-)

Wishing you all the best as you find your way xxx
