Talking Weird Stuff


Psychic and Paranormal

Hop Daddy:

@aiden:

What a story. So you were somehow channeling your friend when you had the dream? Do you channel others often?



I believe I was. I've had other similar dreams where something specific happens to me and I will find out that someone I know is experiencing what I dreamed of. Most of the time I am shown who a particular dream is about directly and what is happening or going to happen but I'm not sure why other times I'm used as a place holder for another's situation.

I also do feel like there are certain energies or messages that try to come through when I'm around certain people but they aren't always super clear to me yet. I've been taking a psychic and mediumship development class here in NYC through meetup that is teaching me to channel others when I'm awake and give readings which has been really interesting. I just have to work on trusting anything and everything that comes through and not worrying about being "wrong"

Is There An Empath-ADHD Connection?


Empath

trishanhthu:

Hi hop-daddy, I believe you are very much right. We are very much aligned with one another because after all we are all one right?  I am in the same situation as you are.

I hope this video will help you a litte.

Thank you for sharing this video. In the last year or so, 3 individuals I know have been told they were empaths by their therapists. They initially reached out to a therapist for bipolar disorder , anxiety, ADHD and depression. As an empath, I can say that I have probably experienced and felt signs of a little bit of each of these diagnosis' before I was aware of being an empath and learning how to live with it. Although some of them are being medicated, it is nice to see that some professionals are taking other possibilities into consideration as well.

Talking Weird Stuff


Psychic and Paranormal

Last year for the first time as an adult I experienced the death of a friend. I hadn't seen him in months and he would typically be the one to reach out to me when we would hang out. On a Thursday night I had a dream that I was laying in a morgue and my head was clearly open from some type of accident. The next day I randomly thought about my friend and felt the need to reach out to him which I never really did prior to that night. Sent him a text and no response. I text him again two days later and still no response. The following week, I find out that he passed away in a motorcycle accident approximately 10 minutes before I sent him that text on the Friday night. I struggled a lot after his death in regards to not reaching out to him more or would things have been different if I had texted him sooner that night. I had always told him that he should get rid of the motorcycle when I would see him drive off on it. I would feel so uneasy seeing him on it and just felt it was unnecessary since he also had a car. He was also very depressed during his life and I was always afraid that he wasn't at peace until he visited me in a dream a few months later and was smiling and dancing which to me was a sign that he was okay.

Professions for Empaths


Healers

I always knew I wanted to work with other people and help them in any way i could which influenced my decision to get my B.A. in Psychology and Social Work. My plan was to be a social worker but after I graduated, this field didn't resonate with me as much. I know many social workers including my sister and they seemed unhappy for the most part and the stories I would hear weighed heavy on me. I wasn't sure if i would be able to do this for a living any longer and my spirituality also started to develop at this point. I was also unaware that I was an empath at the time so I was struggling with wanting to help everyone but also being very afraid and sometimes uneasy around groups of people or strangers. Discovering the word Empath was certainly a life changing moment for me and helped make sense of so many of my life experiences. After doing a lot grounding and shielding work, I felt more comfortable and ready to really put myself out there and start working with people. I now work as a Life Coach which felt right for me since I first encountered the career (also helped that 4 different readers/psychics mentioned  that i need to be coaching in my readings lol).

Guides


Empath

I have never seen my guides but I certainly do feel them when they tap into my energy if I'm out and about and especially if I'm meditating. This didn't start happening until last last year when I addressed them directly for the first time, lit candles for them etc. During my meditations, I have a conversation with my guides and tell them about my day, how I'm feeling, or ask questions. When I feel them tapping into my energy, i go into a slight trance like state and my head will nod in either a yes or a no after i ask specific question. It's how they communicate with me. I am so grateful for them and believe that they are constantly teaching me and helping me develop my spirituality not only to help myself but others as well.

Work


Empath

I was working in a Hospital for almost 4 years and recently quit because of the negative environment i had to deal with for the last 2 years or so. My narc supervisor seemed to "like" me and would give me tons of extra work, telling me that she can't count on anyone else to do it. Yet no promotion. I was very well liked by everyone where i work yet promotions were given to others who were not exactly the kindest or most genuine. They promoted someone who treated almost everyone so awful with physical threats and racism. Some employees were brought to tears. Everyone would come to me to vent of course and would leave me so drained that i broke down myself one day and started crying during a team meeting. Not because I was personally ever disrespected but because i would hear, see and feel how others were being mistreated. Another employee emailed the CEO about the negativity in the office which led to my supervisor putting on a teary eyed production of her own saying how she feels like she let everyone down. Several people have complained about this one employee before and she did nothing. I saw right through her BS and i was just disgusted and my face turned stone cold.

After that i knew i just had to get out of there. I was the 8th person to quit in the last 3 months. I realized i was an Empath last year and the more i learned about what that meant the more I felt compelled to be doing something more purposeful in my life. I think i also got too comfortable at that job and lost sight of my purpose and what I know i am good at. I have decided that it would be in my best interest to work for myself and be my own boss. It's hard to imagine working for another organization as i can see through all the shadiness that goes on and the abuse of power. I am a little nervous since I have always worked under others but I am super excited as well. I just feel that this is the path I need to be going down and it feels right.

What Makes You Feel Good?


Empath

Nature. Nothing makes me feel as good and light as being in nature does for me. I'm from NYC which can be difficult at times as an Empath. Luckily I took a few trips this year and some of them included time spent in nature. I spent my 29th birthday in the El Yunque Rain Forest in Puerto Rico 2 months ago and it was probably the best birthday and day I've had in my life so far. I found a smaller waterfall (away from all the people at the bigger waterfall there which is the main attraction) where I spent most of my day in just sitting on a rock with my feet in the water. I was just taking in everything around me and felt so at peace which isn't something I've completely felt before. It was just so perfect and it suddenly started to rain which just made everything even more beautiful. I could cry just thinking about it (happy tears lol). Writing this finally gave me an idea of what to post as my profile picture which was taken on this magical day Happy

Empaths & love..


Empath

I'd also like to mention that I can usually also tell when a relationship is going to last or if the person I meet will play a significant role in my life in one way or another. I've been in 5 relationships and in 1 of the 5 relationships I just knew this person would hold a very special place in my heart and life even before meeting him in person (met him online). I just felt an energy I never felt before prior to us meeting and when we finally did it was just magical. It was my longest relationship and it was simply amazing. I was 18 but looking back I believe that he may have also been an empath. He was my best friend.When he moved away i was heartbroken but we ended on an amazing note. I still love him very much. 

Now the others, I never did get this similar feeling when meeting the others. I decided to go with it anyway because I know people can "grow" on you and it can't always be fireworks from the beginning unfortunately. I felt super hesitant about the other relationships and had a feeling that I wasn't suppose to be with the person for one reason or the other. I was right about every single one. Slowly but surely I began to uncover the lies and deception in them. Another thing I have noticed in relationships especially is that i  just know when something is off or if I'm being lied to. They would deny of course in the beginning but I was never wrong in the end about my intuition.

Empaths & love..


Empath

Same here! And it comes from males and females , older and younger.  I don't have a single friend who hasn't expressed an interest in me at some point. Sometimes it's difficult because I've had to end friendships because the feeling just wasn't mutual. And as Nikki said, when I'm crushing on someone, the feeling is rarely mutual, but then again I don't always express it to them lol. I encounter random people on the street always smiling at me or kind of just looking at me somewhat in awe. I think empaths naturally have a certain aura that attracts others. I believe since we are so good at being in tune with others feelings and making them comfortable, it makes them feel like we just get them and that we are "the one" when we are in fact just doing what comes naturally to us.

Picking up other people's physical pain or illness?


Empath

I am aware that empaths can feel other peoples emotions but I think for the first time ( that i am aware of anyway) I am picking up on the physical ailments of others. A few days ago, my friend came over and was complaining about a knot in his back that has been bothering him for 2 days. He asked me to give him a massage which is something i dont think I'm good at but i definitely felt that knot in his back and wanted him to feel better. Well, that night i could not sleep! I had the worst back pain and was tossing and turning all night. I don't usually get any back pains but that night it was just unbearable. He on the other hand woke up feeling much better after the massage. I never considered myself to be a "healer" although I have always been drawn to being able to heal others whether it is emotionally or physically. Is there a way I can protect myself during times where I am helping others? I wan't others to feel better but certainly don't want to take anything on.

I have also noticed twice this past week that my breathing has become labored as i passed by 2 different men. One was a guy who was smoking ( i had trouble walking up 3 flights of stairs that i walk up everyday after i passed him) and the other man was a homeless gentleman at my trainstop. Anyone experience this as well?

anyone been asked if they have inattentive add /adhd


Empath

I copied my reply from the "College Students" thread since the topic is similar

I graduated 3 years ago and my time in College certainly wasn't the easiest. I didn't know i was an empath back then but I knew that i had a hard time focusing on one thing for long periods of time. Sitting down to read was nearly impossible. I could read 50 pages but by the time i closed the book, i had no idea what i had read. I didn't realize that during my reading, I was thinking about a million other different things. In class, any slight sound from outside or movement by another student made me turn my head. Lecture classes were especially difficult. I could sit there and stare at the professor speaking but instead of listening to what was being said, I would thinking about what the professors life outside of the classroom was like. If they were married, had kids, the things they do when no one is around etc. In my last year, I ended up taking a child psych class and we touched on ADHD. I always associated this disorder with individuals who were just super hyper all the time and wasn't aware about the "inattentive" version. As we discussed the traits of inattentive ADHD, i was amazed at how perfectly it described me . I picked up a book called Driven to Distraction which also had many scenarios that fit my experiences and ended up seeing a psychiatrist who never officially diagnosed me ( he said it was a long process). He gave me a rx for Adderall. The meds certainly helped as i was able to sit in one place for hours at a time which had never happened before. I also got all A's for the first time and concentrating in class was easier. I participated more than ever as well. I stopped taking the meds when i graduated and dont really feel the need to be on them any longer. I seem to be able to concentrate normally at work for the most part. I believe meditation may have helped with this as well. I do still wonder if i really do have ADHD or if it was just me being an empath. From what i have read so far, individuals who have ADHD or are empathic, tend to have some similar experiences or reactions to stimuli.

Dreams of those who have passed


Dreams

An acquaintance of mine passed away less than a month ago and was in my dream last night. We weren't particularly close nor did i see him often but I was deeply affected by his passing. It was the first time in my adult life that I experienced the death of someone I knew. Since finding out of his passing, I have been speaking to him and asking him to show me a sign that he is okay. Last night I woke up to a text from a friend of mine who also knew him and he said he was suddenly feeling very sad about his passing. I didn't reply but when I fell back asleep, I dreamed that all 3 of us were hanging out as we had done before, just enjoying a day together. Towards the end, it seemed like my friend who passed said a little prayer to himself and thanked his mother for something as he kissed a cross. He also said that he was with an infant. He started happily dancing after this. I woke up feeling like this was the sign from him that I had been asking for and that he was at peace which is what I was hoping for the most. Does anyone here have any experiences of dreams they've had of loved ones who have passed? Also,Is it safe to communicate with individuals who have crossed over(just speaking to them nothing more) or perhaps lighting a white candle for them inside your own home? I've read that you shouldn't do this inside your own home because the spirit may stay there or there is a possibility of other spirits be drawn to your space?

Prayers and love for Orlando Flordia


Empath

I'm in NYC and it is all over the news here and social media. It was hard for me to get out of bed this morning and get the day started after learning what had happened. I visited Pulse when I was in Orlando 4 years ago and it hurts knowing that anytime we step foot outside our homes, we risk things like happening to us or our loved ones. My heart goes out to all the victims and families. May their spirits continue dancing in Heaven.

Yeh I am definitely going to avoid him as much as I can. I went to the gym the next day as well. Shortly after I sat down at my first exercise bench, i turn to my left and there he is sitting down beside me once again. Thankfully he didn't stay long. Don't like his energy at all.

I had a strange interaction with an older man at my gym last night when i asked if i could use a machine he was also using while he rested between sets. He said it was ok but he seem annoyed and hesitant for allowing me to do so after. I usually dont talk to many people at my gym (being there often is difficult enough with all the energy from various people) and i regretted approaching him when i saw his reaction. Sure enough, I had a dream last night of him harming someone and keeping them captive. Woke up drenched in sweat even though my room was freezing from the AC being turned on. Just another example of not being sure if my dream was triggered by my interaction with him or if it's some type of vision. It's so difficult not being completely sure if it's one or the other.

Being an Empath, Substances and other Possible Gifts.


Empath

Yeah setting up protection beforehand certainly seems like a good idea. I'm going to lay off of substances for a while though. I want to focus more on just learning as much as I can about all this and looking inward. I wan't things to happen naturally and don't want to have to depend on any substance to be in tune with my gifts.

Thoughts on sensing versus stealing energy?


Empath

Thank you for this! Very informative. It makes me think back to 2 days ago when I walked into the train and immediately felt hot and started to sweat. I felt so uneasy. I was perfectly fine before I entered. As i was sweating, I noticed an older woman to my left sitting down very poised who looked at me a few times. She had this grin on her face that rubbed me the wrong way. Wonder if this may have been an attack...

Exactly. If it's my close friends or family, I will certainly tell them because they know I am an empath, have dreams etc but I've had dreams of coworkers getting into accidents or becoming ill. I try to be subtle when I bring it up to them at work by asking questions like " are you driving anywhere lately" or " how are you feeling lately". Wish we lived in a world where we wouldn't be viewed as crazy by saying "last night i had a dream of you and so and so happened".

Planes crashing and my dream last night.


Dreams

Last night i had my second dream this week that involved a plane. The one i had a few days ago involved me in a foreign community at night time. There were several planes in the sky and the community received an announcement that we were being attacked. One by one the planes started coming down all around me. I ran as fast as I could to escape death and survived. Last night I made my very first LONG post on the empath forum. I went to bed shortly after and had a dream that I was in a plane with my friend. During take off, the plane was tilting and swerving and I told my friend next to me that the plane may crash. I was ready for it to all end. The plane ended up becoming stable and we made it to the air safely. The rest of that dream was actually very pleasant. There was lot's of food that I loved being served to me and my friend and I felt joy to have survived. I've had dreams in the past of planes crashing down super close to me before, never knew what it meant.Has anyone had similar dreams involving planes?

Shortly after this dream last night, I had a dream that i logged on to this forum and someone commented on my first post saying that I may be a witch.

Dreams

I've been having dreams that come true since I was a teenager. People getting sick, pregnancies, deaths, future relationships, losing jobs etc. I also have some dreams of other people that don't come true, at least not to my knowledge. It becomes a bit tricky for me because I never know if I should share a dream with the person i dream about or if i should keep it to myself. How does one distinguish from a dream of a possible future event as opposed to a random dream you may have about someone? I feel like i need to warn people but I don't want them to think im crazy or even worse, have them feel like i may have contributed to the bad thing that happened.

Being an Empath, Substances and other Possible Gifts.


Empath

Hey all,

I just joined EC and am super excited to be part of a community where I may actually feel like I belong for the very first time in my 28 years of life. I always felt different growing up and would tell other kids that i was an alien who was accidentally left behind on this planet but would be rescued one day from my people (silly, i know). For a while I thought it may have been me dealing with my sexuality but after i sort that out, I realized that there were other things going on. I was always very observant and could easily read people around me without having to speak to them. I could feel what they were feeling and I felt like i knew people without ever saying a word to them. Strangers always come up to me to vent regardless of where I am. It can be draining but I sometimes feel like they encounter me to just let it all out. I feel like im okay with that if it's helping them but I'm not sure if it's always healthy for myself?

It was always hard for me to focus and I was diagnosed with inattentive adhd in college ( i no longer believe i have adhd or take meds, im sure its more of a spiritual thing). A few months ago I was randomly contacted by an ex who I hadn't spoken to in a long time. He was upset about a break up and told me he went to a psychic who read him and told him that he may be an empath. I looked up the word and it resonated with me so deeply and I felt like things started to make a lot more sense. There were times where I would randomly feel so depressed and just wanted to cry and I had no idea why. It was usually after leaving the gym. Public places with crowds can be difficult for me. No matter what the season is, I sometimes start to sweat profusely when I am surrounded by other people. The anxiety kicks in and i get VERY hot. Sometimes just talking to one person and them being so close to me makes me warm.

Since i was a teenager, I've always had certain dreams that would come true . Pregnancies, co workers getting fired, death, etc. I also have dreams where things happen to certain people but never happen in real life which confuses me because i don't always understand why i am being shown certain things. How is one able to distinguish from a possible event that may occur as opposed to it just being another dream? Do you guys warn a person about certain things if you dream it or just let it all play out?

Anyway, I was searching the forum in regards to alcohol and drugs and how empaths can react to different substances but felt like creating a new topic since I'm new and had other questions. Last night, I was with a friend who has been going through a lot and is currently dealing with depression and anxiety. It is sometimes difficult to be around someone who is always so down but I love him and feel like i met him to help him somehow ( i feel this with almost everyone i meet). We were drinking last night (way too much) and I thought the night was going well until we fell asleep and I woke up feeling very heavy and sad.He showed no signs of being upset during the day but I started crying uncontrollably and I knew that what i was feeling was my friend and not myself . Because I was drunk and crying, my friend did not want to admit this to me at the time but today he told me that all day yesterday he had been thinking about suicide again. It all made sense. I guess my question is if other empaths here have similar experiences where alcohol may heighten their abilities and they just pick up on things stronger than usual? I don't drink often but I have never felt someone else's feelings as intensely as i did last night..

I also wanted to touch on other experiences I've encountered that made me realize I am capable of more than I ever imagined.I tried a marijuana for the first time earlier this year. It was an edible and I probably ate more than I should've . I could feel that someone or something was with me , inside me and using my body to communicate. I was conscious and aware of everything that was going on but i knew i wasn't alone in my body. Something kept pulling me to call my friend( the one i mentioned above who is depressed) who's mother passed away a few years ago of ALS. During the high, my limbs would randomly give out. I kept falling to the ground while talking to my friend. At some points I couldn't even move. The way i spoke changed and so did the way i walked when I could get up. I was using way more hips than I ever do in real life, very sassy lol. As i was talking to my friend I did a lot of apologizing and crying but i also had happier moments with him where we laughed and I was basically asking him how he is doing and that he needs to take care of himself. I can't help but feel like I was channeling my friends mother that night along with other energies i felt come and go.

I've tried the edible a few more times with other friends and something comes through each time. I end up telling them things they never told me but I am sometimes afraid because i don't know if what is coming through is good or bad. I had a friend who was experiencing terrible headaches. I placed my hands on his head and saged him one night and they were gone after a while. Another friend of mine was having shoulder pain and kept putting off seeing his doctor for months. I placed my hands on his shoulder when I was high and i swear i could feel his flesh moving inside him. I saged him as well. That night his pain got 10 times worse and he finally went to the doctor the next morning and ended up having surgery the same week.He is better now. I am curious to know if anyone has discovered their gifts while using a substance? Does anyone here only demonstrate certain gifts while on a substance? How can I know if what comes through to me during these highs are good or bad? Deep down I don't feel like it's negative but i am fairly new to all of this and it is very overwhelming. I also DO NOT want to have to rely on any substance to be able to use my gifts. I know I want to do good and help others as much as i can. I've always felt like that is my mission in this lifetime and wan't to carry it out. Please let me know if parts of my post would be better off in another group. Thank you all for reading this very long post.

empaths and your parents; some questions for you.


Empath

Hey all. Just joined EC and am super excited to be able to communicate with other like minded individuals. My mother has always been an empath like myself and I am very close to her. Growing up, she would tell me about strangers who would approach her daily to vent and how she would feel drained or even ill after certain encounters. She is an amazing mother and I wasn't super aware of how connected I am towards her until i moved out when i was 24 (I'm 28 now). She is very emotional and moody at times but so loving and generous as well. My dad is the opposite. He rarely emotes and was always very secretive. Not much of a deep thinker or conversationalist. He's not a bad a guy but he can seem cold like most of his siblings as well. We were never super close but as I got older, I always felt like there is a lot about my dad that I still don't know till this day. I also have an older sister but she doesn't seem to be an empath. We are complete opposites. She is more argumentative and harsh when it comes to certain things.
