Shielding yourself


Empath

@tigerlily:

I wanted to add that protection stones are my primary shielding tool. You mentioned that yours are not doing enough and that you feel overly sensitive. What crystals or stones do you use, and do you clear & clean them regularly? And do you sleep with your crystals or stones under your pillow or near your bedside?

I also wanted to note that epsom salts are magnesium and not actual salt. They make you feel good, and relax the muscles, but I have not found any research stating that they help the spirit or empaths. However, using sea, Himalayan, or rock salts is the real deal. They are the great balancer for empaths and should be in everyone's grounding tool belt after a tough day. There is a very good reason why holy water is made up of salted water that is blessed. And it has been used to clear and bless people and physical places for a very long time. For my baths I use both rock salt and epsom salts. The rock salt relaxes the soul while the epsom salts relax the muscles and physical body.

I hope this helps. If not, I would also suggest reiki and acupuncture as a way to get yourself back in balance.

Empath children


Empath

@spiritualskies:

Most young children are naturally empathic. But the majority of them lose the ability over the years as they grow up and become adults. From there it has been estimated that 10% of humans are empaths.

Both of my kids are now teenagers and their empath skills are growing very strong. But I personally think that a lot of that is because my wife and I support their abilities and are helping guide them through this. Conversely, our society and pretty much every religion does it's best to shut down empathy. We all know the typical stories of parents telling their kids that they really don't have an imaginary friend or that the bumps and whispers in the night are just the house creaking. That teaching moment training kids to disbelieve what they hear and sees sticks, and kids then begin to block their natural abilities. Whereas if you tell your kids you believe what they tell you and support them, their abilities will grow.

But to get back to your point, my daughter was the most obvious. I didn't know what an empath was back then, but I knew she had some unusual gifts and sensitivities. When she had her 1st birthday we had about 40 parents and kids over to celebrate. And she couldn't handle all of the attention and noise from everyone so after an outburst of tears we let her spent the rest of her party playing quietly in her room. We now realize that she couldn't handle the energy of everyone at her party. It was too much for her. And then while she was a little older but not yet able to talk, we used to hear her talking to no one in her room at night. We'd find her sitting up in bed staring at the ceiling having a very detailed conversation in baby talk with something unseen. And it got stranger from there. When she got old enough to talk, we would hear about her seeing ghosts all of the time. 

I would say probably the thing you will notice the most with an empath kid is that they are very sensitive and introverted. They don't like to go out places and get fussy or anxious when out in public.

@cheshire-cat:

Thank you. I'll check that out. I also wanted to note that one of the themes of the psychic self defense book that I referenced was that negative entities need permissions to attach to your aura and get inside. Sometimes we are tricked in to giving permission, but often times your higher self authorizes these permissions. His theory is that higher self permissions are granted to the negs as a teachable moment for you. And I think most of us would agree that every challenge conquered as an empath has made us stronger and taught us a life lesson. This permission theory really resonated with me.

As to your comment about splashing water on your face, that is a suggested technique in that book. He has a pretty well documented theory about running water stopping most negs in their tracks. The author notes then in a pinch you can run a running hose on your feet and legs or splash water in your face to help protect. He mentioned how there have been proven studies that depressed people will feel better during and after a long shower. The negs don't like that and leap off you temporarily when you shower. Taking long showers to ground myself during tough days is something that I have done all my life. My family teases me about my long showers. But that is something that has always made me feel calm. Now I realize there is a spiritual defense component to it. I'll do a big post on this in a few days to try to better break down the major themes of this book. But if you can, try to get a copy for yourself.

@just-stevie:

This past week I bought a book to help me understand and defend against entities in my own home. Any of you who have read my posts know I've had problems for years and it's becoming damaging for myself and my daughter. I found this book by coincidence while looking for something else. I ordered it and have had a tough time putting it down. It has blown me away how relevant and powerful the book's info. is. In a nutshell it explains what negative entities are, how they operate, why they do when they attack, and how to fight back and eliminate them.

The book specifically talks about negs sabotaging your electronics in addition to many other things that I have seen happen with my own eyes and ears. And @just-stevie, the book mentions in several parts the black spiders that you see in your home. They are not good for you, and there are ways to get them out. And lastly, I wanted to say to @cheshire-cat and others that this book very definitely talks about the fact that negs target empaths with ease, and cause all sorts of physical problems and illnesses.

I'm not 100% done reading this book yet. I was going to post about it when I finished it. But after reading @just-stevie struggles, I wanted to highly recommend this book as a way to identify what is going on, and improve your life.

Here's a good link explaining the light worker's role in the world. And I think it really does answer the question of why we have this gift. I also think there is evidence that while negativity is exploding at this time, so are empath awakenings. It's like there is a battle going on between good and evil and both sides are escalating.

http://psychicjoanne.blogspot.com/2010/08/lightworkers-lightworking.html

You nailed it on the ups and downs of being an empath. We do have amazing power to heal and bring out the best in people. But it comes at a cost. It wears us out energetically and physically. And it's a full time job monitoring yourself to try to keep your vibration up. But when you better understand our purpose in this world, it starts to make sense.

Empath

@spiritualskies:

Intuition is that "knowing" that we empaths often speak of. It's confidence that you're making the right decision, or giving someone the right advice. I get quite a bit of this knowing confidence from dreams. I think I get programmed a lot. I won't necessarily remember it. But it's the old sleep on the problem and the next day I feel compelled one way or another on how to act or solve a problem. But separately from that, I have experienced a change in the last year or so where my intuition comes alive and gives me knowing answers while awake. I'll kind of day dream for 30 seconds in a way that clears my mind of the present and then my intuition comes through. Sometimes my intuition feedback will give me answers while other times I'm given new ideas or a call to action to give me some direction. I believe that these thoughts that come through are not my own and come from either my higher self or my guides. These intuition messages are very natural to me at this point so I don't know if it is that easy for others to do. But before I started getting this regular ability, I used to really connect with my intuition in that pre-sleep mode that I noted or while meditating.

And how would I know that the messages I receive are relevant or useful? It's hard to explain, but they have been so reliable that I have stopped questioning their validity. They come through and give me this tingly feeling that I have come to trust. And every time I am given answers that are later proven to be the right choice or the right move/advice. I will admit that sometimes the intuition given is the hardest route to take. People want to question that, and that's okay. I think we all know that in life just because one of the paths is easy, doesn't mean it is the right one. As an example, I had a relative come to me who's wife wanted a divorce but gave her husband an option of just separating to see where it goes. The husband took the news as a wake up call that he could get counseling and change all of his behaviors and save his marriage. But my intuition told me that the wife wanted out and just wanted to be free and wild. My intuition told me she was cheating on him and was getting into drugs and alcohol behaviors with a bad crowd when he was out of town. I tried to tell him delicately that my intuition that was coming through told me she was hell bent on getting divorced and that his life would be better off without her. He didn't want to hear that and spent the next 6 months trying to get her back. And his wife did exactly what my tuition told me and she continued to emotionally distance herself from him with boyfriends on the side that was often mixed with drugs and alcohol binges. This created financial and emotional heartbreak for the husband and put their 4 kids through hell. And he 6 months later in the midst of a very messy divorce told me he should have taken my advice. And the crazy thing is that I wasn't giving him advice. Advice is a suggestion or solution that you feel has the best possible outcome for someone. Knowing isn't advice, it's truth. It's basically the deep down knowledge of what is really going on and where their futures are headed.

@crystalsage:

Good for you if you can project high vibrational energy and keep it up. I go through cycles where I am in a great mood for several days and try to do the same. But it doesn't last long. Now matter how hard I try to raise the vibration around me with a positive mood, there are always opposing forces that eventually bring me back down. I'm not trying to discourage you. But humanity is in a very negative funk these last few years. And that's hard to compete with. I usually come out strong, get weakened from other's negativity. And then need to regroup and rebuild my vibration so that I can go back out happy and high vibration again. But I wish you the best and hope you can continue shining your light to those around you. Let us know how it goes.

Empath

@loconnoro:

For me, my intuition works best when I allow my subconscious to flow through. In other words, I can't be focusing on a problem at the top of my mind and expect to get much from my intuition. One of the human flaws that impacts intuition is our logical brain. And the logical brain is ruled by past experience, religious beliefs, emotions, ego etc... It's really hard for the intuition to break through all of that.

I have an exercise that I do where I am able in a quiet area to allow my thoughts to go empty or blank. And then my intuition flows through and gives me all sorts of ideas and thoughts. I don't need to meditate to do this although meditating is one way to clear your mind. Another idea is for you to focus on using pre-sleep as a way to allow your intuition to come through. When you go to bed tired try to close your eyes and allow your mind to wander for 5 minutes. Usually at that point your logical brain is foggy and tired and your intuition can shine through. Just think of your problem at that point and seek answers by allowing your intuition to go to work. You may get your answers in that pre-sleep environment. And in some cases it will come during sleep and you'll feel very programmed or well informed on what to do.

On your 2nd question, if your emotional empath skills are really strong, it is easy to absorb and feel part of someone else'e emotional composition. Probably the most basic question any empath should ask at that point is "is what I'm feeling mine?" That helps you learn how to separate how you really feel from what you pick up. Protection stones for most empaths help dull the intensity of the emotional energy from others. Quite often our chakras can get too wide open so you are taking in too high of a level of emotional energy from others. Stones and crystals can help you get those chakras back in balance. (I know you say they don't work, but try some new stones as they are an important medicine for empaths). And meditation, salt baths, and lots of regular rest is another way to ground & balance your chakras.

Empathy absorbed?


Empath

@crystalsage:

I love the idea of focusing on the positive to see if it can shine brighter than the negative energy. I have tried that in the past with some success. The challenge for empaths is in my belief that we are meant to take in people's negative energy to ground it out and better the world. We are tuned to identify and take in that negative. The flaw in this for most empaths, including myself, is that we take in the negative and don't ground it fast enough. And that energy sits within us for some time and brings our vibration down until we discharge it through grounding. I have spoken to higher level empaths who recognize the instant they take in negative energy and instantly let it pass through them and ground it to the earth. I don't yet operate that way but hope to some day be able to do that.

I do believe that we do take vast amounts of people's low or negative energy away from them. If it is in passing where you enter a crowded room, you may only absorb small percentages of any given person's energy. But if it is a sit down one on one where you are listening and counseling someone, you take a very large amount of the  problem (low energy) away from that person. Most empaths experience this regularly where they meet with someone who is very low. And the other person leaves the conversation feeling better while the empath then feels worse because they just absorbed the other person's low energy.

I did want to note that while we are out helping people, we often have a temporary effect on them. For example, if someone comes to you to talk to you about a problem with their boyfriend that is causing them anxiety, you will most likely make them feel more relaxed and calm. But you did not make their problem go away so it is only a matter of time until that person becomes anxious again about her unresolved problem.

I've heard a lot of higher level empaths suggest that we need to be a lot more picky with who we choose to heal with an energy exchange. It obviously takes a lot out of us to help people. They say that it is better to direct the hurt person to see the cause of their pain and work on addressing that. Otherwise, as an empath, you are no more than an aspirin that gets rid of their headache for 2-3 hours before their unresolved problems return.

I find it hard over time to be creative as an empath. As my empath abilities have grown, my creative abilities have waned. I find that when I am very grounded and relaxed, my creativity and motivation to do things creative jumps back to me. But at other times when I am dealing with the stresses of work, home life, and typical empath stresses, my creative side takes a break. Next time you go on vacation and relax, see if you notice your creative writing ambitions coming back.

I've had dogs for years. And it is always amazing what they pick up on. Some people they get uncomfortable with to the point where they don't want a certain person in the house at all. And then some people they are so excited to see they go bananas like a teenage girl at a One Direction concert. I think most dogs are kind of like empaths where they can detect and analyze energy and intent. And on that note, having teenagers in my house there are constant mood swings happening. And I find it interesting how my female dog in particular reacts to that. When I come home from work at night all I have to do is take one look at her and I'll know what I'm walking in to. I call her my doggie empath. Happy

I also recognize cold spots and hot spots in my home. It will happen for 10-15 minutes and then go away. I have heard of spirits messing with electronics before. When it happened to me I kept trying to explain it away as a fluke. But when our shaman was removing an entity from my daughter she asked us if we've been having trouble with electronics around the house because this particular entity specialized in causing electronic failures and cell phone issues. Since she removed that entity our electronic problems went away. Go figure.

I had a tough week a few weeks back like yours where I was dealing with heavy spirit activity and then electronics started failing. I had a computer less than a year old stop working (needed a while hard drive replaced). My back up drive also stopped working. Light bulbs would fizzle out when I walked in a room in 3-4 places in the house. And we all of a sudden had problems with our phones not connecting to the mobile network (eventhough we are in a good cell phone area and have never had that problem before). And then we had a serious car repair issue pop up (also electronic related). 

I always wonder if times like these are spirit related or whether I somehow have energy that is screwing things up?

I have an ongoing problem on my property where I had a shaman remotely close a portal. But right after that it seemed to piss off the spirits as they came back stronger a few days later.

I've been trying to find someone reputable to help me with this in the Phoenix area because we've all of a sudden started having some negative spirit encounters whereas for many many years the spirits at my home just passed through and didn't really bother us. So I'm trying to find someone to come inspect my house with dousing tools or whatever to find any other portals and close them. Any idea on where to find someone good?

I forgot to mention that about a year and a half ago I had a spirit that was hitting me with some sort of psychic blast. I don't know if it was trying to break in through my aura or what. But my ears would ring really loud and intense and I would get hit with what can best be described as an air blast that would almost knock me off my feet. I would get immediately dizzy and lose my balance for about 3 seconds. And the ear ringing was especially intense. I took someone's advice and told the entity to leave me alone and it pretty much ended. But it's very interesting to me how various spirits will push themselves on me in different ways. The spark or fire ant zap is what I feel most often. That psychic blast that I just described only happened over a 3 day period. And then as I noted on another recent post I had a pretty serious spirit attack on my solar plexus and mind as I was trying to start a saging ritual to chase the spirits out of my daughters room. I don't know what makes one spirit more powerful than another. I'll have to do some research on that. If anyone has any insight on this I'd love to better understand this.

It hurts a bit and quite frankly makes me angry because I feel like they are sneak attacking me when I'm trying to relax. But I have learned to not give spirits an emotional response because I believe they are trying to create a reaction so they can feed on any emotional energy that I'll discharge (like anger or fear).

fake PTSD?


Dreams

@sasha-supertramp:

It's always hard to explain hardcore and especially frightful images in dreams. In some cases it's your mind working through your thoughts and fears (that's why I think we can get worse dreams when we empaths are going through tough times). And in other cases you may be getting sent a message or lesson from something.

Do you run in to spirits at all during the day? The reason I ask is that I've had some interactions myself where I'm pretty sure some unwanted bump in the night visitors projected some disturbing dreams in my head. There were some things that I was later able to connect the dots on. It happens.

Empath

@spiritualskies:

HSPs (highly sensitive people) are what the scientific community calls us without really addressing the spiritual component that all empaths have. In my opinion it's a half-ass way to try to explain scientifically how we can pick up on people's emotions out of thin air. Although I'll add that not all HSPs are empaths. HSPs are typically very sensitive to their environment. And I've seen non-empaths suffering from mental illness or drug addiction that could be classified as an HSP who are struggling with coping in the world.

If you are numb that's a red flag in my opinion. You may be experiencing empath fatigue & burnout. And usually when you are numb you are close to entering the dark place of depression. With my experience as an empath and watching my two empath teens, I usually see the pattern of high anxiety and stress that leads to numbness. The numbness is your mind trying to shut off the pain and cope. And then at some point that leads to depression. And that gets pretty ugly to be depressed as an empath.

The good news is this is all avoidable and you can live a relatively stable life as an empath. What you're going to want to do is catch yourself at the early stages of anxiety and stress and really work on calming yourself down. An experienced empath will not allow herself/himself to get so anxious that they become numb or deeply depressed. I recommend rest, grounding meditation, daily salt baths, and use of protection stones. Some empaths also try reiki as a way to rebalance and get rid of negative. These steps will help you release the negative energy that you are taking in each day that are causing your struggles. If you need  more info. or advice on any of these steps please let me know.

Empath

@spiritualskies:

Being an empath can at times feel like you are losing your mind. This is particularly true when you are new to this as you are developing a new normal for yourself as you come to understand how all of this works. I actually discovered that I was an empath many years ago while googling mental illness. I was suffering through crazy mood swings and chronic fatigue, and was miserable and was trying to figure out what was wrong with me. Ironically the google search engine returned a website about empathy that had an empath test. I was amazed to find that I shared so many of the traits of an empath listed on the website. I took the empath test and scored really high on it. So long story short, in my search to discover what mental illness I had, I instead discovered that I was an empath. 

If you are asking these types of questions then I am guessing that your chakras are really open and that you are suffering from hyper-sensitivity? If I am correct then you will need to learn how to turn the dial down on your empath receptors. Do you do any grounding exercises or use protection stones? How is your nightly sleep cycle going?

Grounding exercises help me manage the later. But since I have a really sensitive solar plexus region, my stomach has not been normal for years. And it often hurts to eat (despite a traditional doctor telling me there isn't anything wrong with my stomach other than very slight acid reflux). I stumbled across an article on acupuncture and found confirmation that acupuncture can be used to help heal the stomach area as well as emotional energy problems that cause depression and fatigue. And I was curious if any of you have tried acupuncture with any success? If so, thanks for sharing your stories.

fake PTSD?


Dreams

@spiritualskies:

Thanks for asking. This is still an ongoing problem for us. We've dealt with spirits in our home for the last 16 years. Most have been harmless and just passing through. At first it freaked me out. But since they mostly left us alone, we learned to live with it. But since my 14 year old teenage empath daughter has sunk to a depressive state the last few months, we've seen more destructive spirits lurking about. I don't want to say they are evil. They just have the bad intention of draining my daughter's spiritual and physical energy. She's been in and out of a low energy weakened state and they are attracted to that. And when I got involved with helping her clear entities and saging her room, I was attacked by something pretty powerful. I think I may have touched on this before in another post. But when I took an aggressive approach to try to clear the spirits in my house, I experienced a sharp pain in my stomach and solar plexus region that felt like an invisible knife was going in and out. And I got really foggy brained and had tunnel vision to the point where I couldn't focus enough to read the words on the page of a prayer book that I was using as part of my saging ritual. I had to break out of what was attacking me by forcing myself to my feet to shake it off. It was one of the most bizare things I've ever experienced as I literally felt like something was attacking my mind and body trying to keep me from helping my daughter.

So long story short, I did break free of the attack/spell situation I was under. I finished saging my daughter's room while she used white light to try to also banish the spirits. We had a good clear 48 hours after that where my home felt clean to me. And my daughter's happiness and high vibration returned. But new spirits have come back since and we've done our best to keep them in check. We're currently trying to find someone local to help us find and close portals on our property. We had a shaman by phone tell us that she thinks there are many energy portals on our property that are the result of ancient native american rituals. And this is why we have so many spirits passing through. I just need to find someone to help us find and close them.

Seing other wordly beings - Question

@kate:

On that note, media has focused on the "if it bleeds it leads" mantra for some time. All we get now are horrible stories of fear and misery that humanity inflicts on each other. Gone are the good-will stories or the water skiing squirrel videos that used to pop up on the news 25 years ago. It's really sad and is imbedded in our society.

fake PTSD?


Dreams

@sasha-supertramp:

I think that may be a reflection of where you are at right now on the energy spectrum? Have you been feeling off, or low lately? I notice that when I get out of balance and don't compensate quick enough with grounding and relaxing that I seem to attract some bad things. I get bad thoughts, bad dreams etc... And when I ground and raise my vibration, I get back to normal.

I think I may have told you before that I unwittingly interact with spirits. And when I am feeling down they make a lot of noise around me at home. Strange things start to happen. And I often have negative or ugly thoughts pop into my head that I attribute to them. They also wake me up a lot and interfere with my sleep. And this past weekend I woke up and was thinking about what I was going to do that day and the word "suicide" popped in my head. I was happy and in a fairly good place so it was odd that word popped in my mind. It's both annoying and scary when I feel spirits are throwing words in my mind. My point is that as an empath it is a constant battle to keep above the fray and maintain my high vibration so that the world and afterworld doesn't bring me down. I wonder if maybe something similar is impacting you?

Vitamin/Mineral Deficiency in empaths


Empath

@tigerlily:

Since epsom salts are magnesium, your body will soak that up. Magnesium is often deficient in people with anxiety and depression. In fact, in our fast paced society, magnesium deficiency is quite common. And that's why its good to soak in it every once in a while. It also does wonders relaxing muscles.

I don't think empaths are really any more deficient in vitamins than anyone else. I think diet has more to do with that. However, being an empath who is often anxious or overloaded with emotional energy does cause adrenal fatigue. That impacts your brain chemistry and is not fun to go through. I dealt with that during the early stages of being an empath.  You'll gain weight, have trouble falling asleep and getting restful sleep. And you'll have a tough time calming down and being your self (even a low stress day has you on pins & needles). You become a stressed out neurotic version of yourself. And it's unfortunate, but most empaths go through this at one point or another.

Adrenal fatigue can be treated by supplementing with adaptogens and gaba and by getting plenty of rest. The best way to move forward is to see a naturopathic doctor and have them test your brain chemistry and treat the problem.

Seing other wordly beings - Question


Psychic and Paranormal

@kate:

What I've learned about myself is that I often block things I pick up on just by second guessing. What I've been trying to do over the past year is not second guess and just let the emotional message come through that I pick up from spirits. If you can try to do the same you will probably find that your first impressions that you feel about a spirit was dead on (no pun intended). I have also come to understand that while some places are truly haunted by tragic events that keep certain spirits tied to a location, there are also free roaming spirits everywhere. So as you start to tune into more of that you'll pick up on spirits all over the place.

Shielding yourself


Empath

@krosskelt:

I know exactly what you mean. I've had some of my crystals disappear overnight. Some I end up finding months later that got stuck somewhere. But one of my favorites just vanished into thin air about 9 months ago. It's interesting you've experienced the same.

Psychic and Paranormal

@kate:

You bring up an interesting topic. I think we are programmed from birth to think of spirits as bad. It's the big unknown and Hollywood has always portrayed spirits as scary with bad intentions. I live in a home where we have had quite a few spirits passing through over the years. Initially it scared us. But they mostly leave us alone. They make noise and sometimes move things but for the most part don't do bad. As a result I have been used to things that go bump in the night as mostly being harmless. But I have had some negative run ins as well so you always have to be on guard.

I have never seen a fairy that I am aware of. But in recent years and months there have been strange white almost Tinkerbell white lights in my bedroom at night. I don't believe they are orbs or ghosts the way they look and hang around so it makes me curious as to what they are. And my wife had a run in on a hiking trail with an angel. 

And I did want to mention that I had a former assistant who can see spirits who told me she often saw little people sneaking around. When I questioned her on it I she explained them as being smaller than a human dwarf. More cat sized and they looked like garden gnomes. And she says they can be a bit distracting and mischievous.

@spiritualskies:

It seems your post is missing some details for me to really understand your situation. Do you give advice that they take that then backfires? Or do you give advice that they mostly ignore and then things blow up on them? If it's the later then I would say the old "you can't lead a horse to water, but can't make him drink" situation. Some people ignore advice and signs and insist on doing things the hard way. I've dealt with this myself where a person is making all the wrong choices leading down a path of self-destruction. That's the unfortunate path they choose. You can't force their choices if they block your advice. And sometimes you just have to let them fall before they will listen to you and their own signs.

It's always interesting to me how many people won't listen while they are falling down. They will only listen when they have fallen, and are wounded and weak.

Seeing Strange Lights


Psychic and Paranormal

@just-stevie:

Your descriptive story is very unique. You too may have portals on your property. And portals that bring in different things from different dimensions. I'm starting to hear more and more psychic people talking about aliens from other dimensions coming through portals to our world. But most are not good guys and are stealing human energy/hurting people. Your descriptions sound like aliens to me (at least alien to our time and place). But thank goodness they are benign and kind of protective of you. At least you don't feel threatened.

Seeing Strange Lights


Psychic and Paranormal

@cheshire-cat:

Our shaman told us they latch on to cracks in your aura. Since you have some illness concerns my guess is that they have latched on to cracks in yours that illness has left open. They obviously like our extra special energy as well. In your case I wonder if long term entity attachment has contributed to some of your condition? And maybe you have portal issues as well? I wish you the best in feeling better!

The good news for us is we're not in a panicked situation versus where we were a week ago with a lot of unknown. Our shaman has helped us understand a lot of what is going on and has urged my daughter to use her skills to fight back. And now that my daughter is doing that she is gaining confidence and strength. We just have a bit of a battle on our hands and it's hard to know how long it will take to get our place back to normal.

Seeing Strange Lights


Psychic and Paranormal

Interesting follow up I thought I'd share. Our shaman helped my daughter learn how to use white light to protect herself and clear entities. And she was able to do that Monday night and that night went fairly peaceful.

But the problem at hand is that once we clear a set of entities a new set arrives within a day. They just keep coming. So by last night my daughter was feeling down again and exhausted. I told her to try using the light exercise again to clear them. She tried but then got really scared by sounds around her and stopped and went across the house to get me. I told her enough is enough we are going your room together and clearing these things out. I have no idea how to use white light yet. But I did just buy some sage. And while sitting in her room thumbing through a book to find some protection prayers I started getting attacked by these unseen entities. At first my stomach right below my solar plexus started hurting (typical for me around energy). And then I felt stabbing pain in that area. And then my head felt off and dizzy and I started getting tunnel vision. I also noticed that the hair on my legs were standing straight up (but only between my ankle & knee area). This was all distracting me from finding the protection prayers. I ended up jumping to my feet to try to shake these ill feelings off. And within a few minutes I said a protection prayer and saged her room and some of the rooms near her. While doing this my daughter worked on using her white light exercise to do her own clearing. And it all seemed to work. We had a happy & peaceful night after that.

But today is a new day and my stomach was swollen right off the bat from emotional energy and I felt a bit mentally off/slightly dizzy at home. And then while walking into my home office this morning I felt a sharp heat burn on about 2 inches of my thigh. It didn't hurt so much but felt really odd. It was almost as if someone shot a heat ray gun at me. I went ahead and put a selenite crystal in the pocket near that thigh and it went away. But my best guess is that something does not like that my daughter and I are fighting back.

The shaman we've been using has been really helpful. But the problem is that all her work has been done remotely by phone and video conference. And although she closed one portal, she and I both believe there are others on our property where these entities are coming in. She's not exactly sure where the others are. I'm trying to find a local shaman who can come over and walk our property to try to identify where these things are coming in from and put a stop to it. If anyone knows anyone experienced at this in the Phoenix area I would appreciate the referral. And if anyone else has been through anything similar, I'd appreciate any tips on how to win the battle.

Questions on being Psychic...


Psychic and Paranormal

@holly5757:

With practice you can open up your chakras a little to be more sensitive. The trick is opening them up just enough to be helpful. But if you open them up too much the feeling everything overload can be too much. 

A lot of people open up chakras through meditation. A short cut would be to use some crystals to help with that. For example, you may find lapis lazuli along with meditation as a way to strengthen your abilities. Here's some info. on that stone that I found online:

Lapis Lazuli Spiritual Energy


Lapis is one of the oldest spiritual stones known to man, used by healers, priests and royalty, for power, wisdom and to stimulate psychic abilities and inner vision. It represents universal truth. [Mella, 89-90]

Lapis quickly releases stress, allowing for peace and serenity. Placed over the third eye, Lapis expands awareness and conscious attunement to the intuitive self, stimulating enlightenment and enhancing dream work. It permits spiritual journeying, and tapping into personal and spiritual power. Lapis provides a connection with dream forces that are working to both guide and counsel during altered states. [Melody, 370][Hall, 172]

As a protection stone, Lapis Lazuli recognizes psychic attack and blocks it, returning the energy back to its source.

@cheshire-cat:

I did want to say that I have seen first hand anti-anxiety & anti-depression meds really improve a person's condition and literally save their life. However, I don't think these meds for an empath are a good choice. And like you said, once on them it is murder to get off of them. Not to mention the side effects.

I am sorry to hear about all of your medical struggles. It is always hard to understand why bad things happen to good people. Just know that you have made amazing contributions to this site and your advice is always very helpful.

Seeing Strange Lights


Psychic and Paranormal

@just-stevie:

Thanks for your feedback. My daughter is not yet on any pharm drugs. I'm very leery of that and will only allow it as a last resort. It's interesting to me that after each of the recent three shaman sessions where entities were cleared that my daughter completely calmed down. It confirms my belief that we need a spiritual cure and not a prescription one. The challenge is that after she gets cleared then within a day or two other new entities come and attach to her. We basically have to figure out how to clear and protect our property and find any portals. Our shaman is also trying to teach my daughter how to better defend herself (close off her chakras so they can't so easily attach). But I did want to respond to something that @cheshire-cat asked about. The shaman confirmed that our property is on an energy grid. I presume that is the same as ley lines?

Seeing Strange Lights


Psychic and Paranormal

@cheshire-cat & @just-stevie:

I think when it comes to dealing with entities that attach it's sink or swim. You have to win the battle as the alternative is misery that sometimes leads to suicide. This is a well documented topic and ironically was a topic that I did a post on this site many months back. That's my concern with my daughter going forward since these things drain her and drop her vibration. I feel like we are getting the right kind of help. But there must be so many people out there that are empaths that don't understand it or don't know it and are attacked by entities. And with kids with parents who don't understand this spiritual stuff, how many just get labelled as having mental problems and get drugged up rendering their gifts mute?

But back to dark entities attacking, I have a theory on this. I don't think it's any secret that entities feed on low energy. And our society and world has become so hateful and dark these last few years. I think it's like fertilizer having all of that negative floating around everywhere. Even if you're having a good day just check the news and see how fast your mood changes to angry or sad. It's epidemic ugliness super promoted by media in our 24/7 world. So I think the dark side is growing and waging war against the light. And since we empaths are light workers, we are the target. And like @cheshire-cat said, they find it easy to prey on the young or weak empaths that are less able to fend for themselves. This has been a real wake up call to be more on guard for myself and family.

P.S.-I still don't know what these darned lights are. Happy Someone told me maybe they are angels? And if they are spirits, then it's odd to me that they just sit illuminating one spot without moving for 10 minutes before disappearing. But maybe this is directly related to the other things going on in my home.
