family thinks im in a cult, or devlil worshipping


Empath

I think many of us in this community can relate... I'm sure many of us are "closet empaths" for a lack of a better word.  I am still kind of one of them myself.  So yes, like lucky-seven said "at least you are not alone".  

As for advice... I say stay true to who you know you are.  Because you know with your soul that this is your gift/curse (which ever you may call it).  Just because the bible or religion says this is wrong doesn't mean that it is true or these things are not happening to you or are part of you.  This is touchy subject with many people, religious or not.  So just be patient with those who don't understand, they are just worried for you because of what they have been taught to believe.

I hope this helps a little.

Welcome New Web Site Early Birds!


Empath

Thank you Elise, for being so dedicated to this community!  I was worried when I first got the email about the community having to move.  I was worried that this wonderful resource and community would be lost.  Thank goodness it got all worked out.  The site looks great! 

Again, Thank you so much Elise!

Kids energy is too much


Empath

Hello Empath friends,

As empath's we all know the struggle of keeping other's emotions and feeling at bay. But I am having a hard time dealing with my own children's energy lately. I have two girls who are 10 and 7 years old and lately their energy is off the charts! I am sure it has to do with the warmer weather and summer vacation just around the corner. But it is so intense that I just want to drop them off from school and run screaming in the other direction. The intensity literally makes my skin crawl and I get that high intensity body buzz ( hopefully some of you will know what I mean). Some days I will say I need a minute and I will meditate and try to shield myself but that doesn't always work. Also my husband and I have a good friend who come's over at least once a week with her two kids who are 9 and 6 years old. When all the kids are in the house I feel like I am going to spontaneously combust. And while visiting I don't always get a chance to sneak off for a few minutes without them wondering where I went. I should also mention that the adults don't know I am empath. Yes, that includes my husband. That is a topic for another time.

I just wanted to know if any other emapth parents or child care givers(teachers, coaches etc) feel this way? What do you do to keep yourself calm around the kids, when you might not be in a position to go to a quiet place?

I look forward to your feed back

Have a wonderful day!

28 years of purgatory


Empath

Hello Sean, Your story is one that many of us empaths can relate to. I am so glad you are no longer in purgatory and found this community. Now that you know that you are an empath nothing will ever be the same. But in a good way. Hopefully for you it will bring more joy and happiness. Being a empath is never easy, many of us are torn as to whether this is a gift or a curse. It is both things. Some advice I can offer is first, to read everything you can to help you navigate through this new extension of your life. The second thing is to learn to protect and/or shield yourself from others emotions. That way you can eventually control what you want to feel. You have definitely come to the right place for guidance. I wish you all the best!

how do identify sources of negative energy???


Empath

Hi Cindy!

I think you can rest assured that no one on this site thinks you are crazy. Because I am positive that 99% of the people in the community have had that seem feeling. I know I have many times. The worst is when you are in the car trying to drive and you get slammed with an overwhelming feeling and you just start bawling.

Meditation is very good for this sort of thing. It can calm you down, make you feel at ease. Often meditation can also give you answers to where this negative energy came from. If you are not sure about meditation yet then at least find your self a shield of protection. It could be a prayer, a mantra, a visualization of a happy place. I Personally use stones and crystals as my protection. But you need to find something that will work for you. And it doesn't have to be big or take up much time. In the beginning of this gift of being an empath, shielding yourself and learning to protect yourself from others is very important.

I hope this has helped in some way.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello Wendy,

I am sorry you are having a difficult time. I too have had the same experience. I do not have many friends. Sure I have many acquaintances. People who I speak to at work, friends of friends but that never really stick around. I usually only hear from those people when they want or need something. Mostly it's advice or a shoulder to cry on. Initially I felt good helping others. But over time I realized they were not truly my friends. Even now I tend to be bother by it. As an empath, I just know now that this is part of "job". I don't know how these people find us. That still baffles me. Just remember this, people come in and out of lives for many reasons. As empath's I think this happens to us more than anyone else. Sometimes I think they come in and out of our lives so we can learn something from our experiences with them. Don't lose faith. The people who are meant to be around you, already are.

Have a wonderful day!

New again to Empath Community


Empath

Hello fellow Empaths!

I say I am new again because I was a member before. When I was here last, I remember I found it a good place to be. With many warm and welcoming people. I am sure I will find that again.

I just wanted to say hello, and ask for some advice or suggestions, on the best way to navigate the community. How I can make the most of my experience here.

I will share a little about myself...

I am an Empath and have know for a very long time that I was "different". The things I was feeling, and vibes I was getting were not the same as others. When I was younger I would say I don't like that person, they make me anxious or nervous etc. And people would have no idea what I meant. Now I know that to be the empath in me.

I look forward to meeting fellow empaths and people who think they maybe empaths. So we can share stories, ideas and help each other through "our" strange world.

Have a wonderful day!
