Fasting


Empath

I'm glad to hear that impacted you so well. Did you just fast for the day or was it longer? It has been proven that fasting clears out your body of toxins and reboots it fresh and makes you feel better. Here are some news clips that I found:

A study, conducted by Dr. Valter Longo and colleagues from the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles, found longer periods of fasting - 2-4 days - may even "reboot" the immune system, clearing out old immune cells and regenerating new ones - a process they say could protect against cell damage caused by factors such as aging and chemotherapy.

Since the body is unable to get its energy from food during fasting, it dips into glucose that is stored in the liver and muscles. This begins around 8 hours after the last meal is consumed. "A detoxification process also occurs, because any toxins stored in the body's fat are dissolved and removed from the body," he adds, noting that after a few days of fasting, higher levels of endorphins - "feel-good" hormones - are produced in the blood, which can have a positive impact on mental well-being.

"When you starve, the system tries to save energy, and one of the things it can do to save energy is to recycle a lot of the immune cells that are not needed, especially those that may be damaged," Dr. Longo explains.

In their study, published in the journal Cell Stem Cell, the team found that repeated cycles of 2-4 days without food over a 6-month period destroyed the old and damaged immune cells in mice and generated new ones.

Drink Up To Help Depression?


Empath

@cheshire-cat:

Thanks for looking that up. I was purely guessing that the heat from roasting would destroy most of the pesticides. I know organic coffee that tastes good is hard to find and is pretty pricey so I typically don't buy those. I happy to hear from you that roasting gets rid of a very higher percentage of the pesticides.

Also, you have some very interesting methods of improving your bedroom's environment for sleep. I have not tried any of those methods. A Faraday cage is a zapping electrical grid. That may be a bit extreme for most. Although I just finished reading a book that recommended that for people who are harassed by spirits at night. The electrical grid keeps the spirits out of your bed area. 

I mostly try to exercise early evening to strip off some of the stress. And the exercise makes my body tired. A nice hot salt bath also relaxes and gets me ready to sleep if I had a tough day. And then I always use over the counter sleep aids like melatonin.

Drink Up To Help Depression?


Empath

@zacharias:

I'm the same. I used to drink many many cups of coffee through each day in addition to diet cokes. But as soon as my empath awakening happened, I had to cut back my caffeine intake as my anxiety and high caffeine levels were a bad mix. I kicked the diet coke habit which was probably a good thing due to all of the chemicals. And now I drink 1-2 cups of coffee in the morning and 1-2 in the afternoon depending on how my day is going. I will say when I am down in the dumps, an immediate cup of coffee really gives me a positive boost. I'm not going to say it totally cures the blues. But it certainly helps. And since all of us empaths don't sleep well anyway, the caffeine helps us cope with being tired during the day.

@cheshire-cat, I wonder whether the pesticides are depleted at all when coffee beans are washed and roasted?

I did want to also note that if you also deal with a lot of anxiety, you will want to keep your caffeine intake at a more moderate level. I had some sleepless empath nights years ago where I tried to power through the day by drinking extra coffee. And that was the tipping point for a severe panic attack. So on my anxiety days, I now typically drink a lot less coffee and tea.

Drink Up To Help Depression?


Empath

We've had quite a few people posting about depression lately. And as an empath, we all deal with regular bouts of mood shifts and depression. I happened upon the two below health articles that detail how regularly drinking coffee significantly improves depression. And in the 2nd article it notes coffee drinking greatly reduced suicidal tendencies for those who were deeply depressed. And I thought I'd share this with all of you as this may be advice that you can incorporate into your daily routine to help you feel better.

@zacharias:

I totally agree. For some reason it is very human to allow oneself to become exposed to negative things. It reminds me of the old newspaper adage "If it bleeds, it leads". How many of us can't wait to read about about a messy celebrity divorce, a cheating scandal, or even an untimely death? We pretty much all get sucked into negative stories, events etc... But understanding that is part of the process with being able to raise your vibration. We are all only as good as our weakest link. Examine that, and limit negative exposure on the path to raising your vibration.

communicating with energy/static and generation


Psychic and Paranormal

@just-stevie:

That's great news you are swimming in a salt pool. That does all sorts of good.

My daughter has been in a similar situation to what you describe where she has had entities attach deeply to her. And it put her in a deep depressive mess where she couldn't even make it through an hour of school without an anxiety attack. I ended up hiring a shaman to remove entities from her. The shaman removed 8 the first time and sent most of them to the light. But a week later more entities had attached and she needed a 2nd session. I was with her during the sessions and watched the whole shaman process and it was legit. The shaman lady would say things like "this one is attached to your head so you may feel dizzy while I remove it since it will likely fight the removal process. And my daughter said she was feeling dizzy even right before the shaman told her that. The same thing happened with different sensations when these things were removed from her stomach.

But like I said earlier, the entities don't make it easy, and do fight back. I know you are experiencing that fight back now. You have to stay strong. In fact, in my case as I was dialing the shaman to book the appointment, both my cell. phone and wife's cell. phone stopped working. And then internet went out. It took 15 minutes to get the phones working again. And we're in a populated area with plenty of cell towers so that shouldn't happen (and has never happened before). I also took steps to smudge my daughter's room and one of the entities came after me with a psychic attack that caused me severe stomach pain, and I started getting dizzy with shrinking tunnel vision (like when you are about to pass out). So we've been in a bit of a fight. But we appear to be on the winning side of things so far. I just wanted to let you know what to expect, and to stay strong. Keep fighting, and get your house & life back to normal.

P.S.- I can't tell my daughter that these things aren't real because they are real. But I am teaching her not to be afraid and to be more empowered. The shaman told her that as well.

communicating with energy/static and generation


Psychic and Paranormal

@just-stevie:

The way this works based on my research is that taking showers or swimming in an ocean/running river weakens them. The entities on the surface of your aura will pretty immediately jump off you when in the shower. But entities that have been there for a long time are more deeply attached inside the shell of your aura and likely aren't leaving. But the running water still does weaken them. And in theory if you made a point of taking long daily showers for a week, you may weaken them to the point where they also detach and leave. However, a lot of people report them fighting back when you attempt to get rid of them. I had this problem with my empath daughter who while in running water at my suggestion had a vision of a scary witch running at her screaming. It made her jump out of the shower in fear. And for the entity, that was mission accomplished since the running water exercise was stopped. So expect to get some push back from any deep residing entities in your head or body. They hear your thoughts and know your intent. They may try to put up a fight when you are learning and applying things to get rid of them.

I also wanted to ask if you have considered hiring a shaman to clear you and your home? This is the highest form of professional help that you can get.

Empath

@spiritualskies:

I plan to be here until they force me out! Wink Although the energy drain and fatigue around 6-8PM most days is a little frustrating, I take it all in stride and try to see the positives. And my pick up of the greater consciousness comes and goes. It's not every day and tends to be when something major has happened or is about to happen. But I have in most cases found ways to see a positive in any of the negative experiences that I get as an empath. I've spent a lot of time reading up on this, studying myself, studying others. I feel that I have a pretty good handle on how most of this works, and how I can ground and lift myself back up. I think the #1 thing I've learned is to notice when my vibration is dropping and know that I then have a pretty immediate need to raise it back up. That keeps me out of the dark depressive space that we all fall in to with lower vibrations.

empath depression


Empath

@spiritualskies:

To answer your question: As far as I can tell, anxiety energy that I pick up during the 6-8PM time period has nothing to do with myself or my family interactions. In fact, quite often I'm the first one home at 6PM and that energy is there well before my family gets home. I was reading an empath self-help book a couple years ago that spent a whole chapter covering the drama energy around dinner time that empaths pick up on from society. And when I was reading that it was an ah-ha moment for me. Because I always feel a anxious, fatigued and a little beat up during that time period. That book also noted how many empaths become energized at night when most of society is asleep. And that is also me. In fact, I have a tough time settling down most nights to go to bed at a decent hour since I feel a caffeine-like energy high from 10:30PM on.

I did want to note that I know that all us empaths have different sensitivities. In my case I've noticed that over the past couple years I have become more in tune with the mood of my community, and even the mood of the country. And sometimes this gives me an ominous warning. I remember feeling sick to my stomach that morning back in 2016 when those Dallas Police officers were ambushed. That entire day I felt sick and nervous and had a feeling that something bad was going to happen. And then that evening that maniac was on a building roof in Dallas with a sniper rifle and he killed 5 police officers and wounded 11 others. If you all remember that was a real ugly time with riots and race relation issues in summer of 2016. I picked up on all of that before events happened.

Can a church be haunted?


Psychic and Paranormal

@zacharias:

You didn't mention if the entity left when you asked it to? Or maybe you are waiting to see?

Your description of the pipes in that room is interesting. The entity may very well be trapped back there by the parameters of the pipes. When you read that book you'll find that the running water in utility pipes imprisons them (since if they try to cross the pipes the running water zaps their energy). Some entities can navigate around the pipes while others that are often referred to as astral wildlife are more blind and get stuck.

Entities have no need for high vibrational energy/happy people. It's the low energy they seek. I had an assistant years ago who could see entities. And we also had another lady that worked in my office years ago that was just a miserable alpha female type. She was bitter, outspoken, and seemed to delight in yelling and degrading others in the office. And my assistant used to tell me that she could always see several black spirits circulating around that awful person. The entities are very drawn to miserable & negative humans like that. Their low vibrational energy feeds them. And very often entities that attach to that person's aura will indeed influence their thoughts and personality (called overshadowing). So I think you've done some pretty good detective work finding an entity in an area surrounded by pipes and a person who works there that exudes low energy. They also like to go after children as they are an easy target and easily influenced.

From what I have experienced and read, it's probably only 50/50 at best that entities will leave when you command. It's really only the more harmless spirits that will move on. The rest know exactly what they are doing and have less than honorable intentions. And they are there to get the energy that they seek and have no intention of leaving. And there are other steps to take at that point (including getting a shaman or someone with very strong medium abilities to clear an area and either send the entity to the light or relocate them).

empath depression


Empath

@cheshire-cat:

I feel very weighted down, foggy brained, and emotionally exhausted during weekdays from 6-8pm. I get home from work close to 7PM each night and often feel so weighted down that I almost fall asleep on the drive him. It almost feels like someone cast a spell on me. I read somewhere that this time frame is family conflict time through every community as families come home from work and activities and argue among each other during dinner (plus stress of getting kids to do homework bath, and go to bed). So there is a lot of anxiety in the air. And I think that makes sense for me as I pick all of that up and just feel really drained. And then magically around about 10PM I get energized like I just slammed down a couple espressos. I also read that because most people are winding down or asleep by 10-10:30, that all of that emotional energy in the ether goes away. And I really feel that as I feel very free, well, and excited for my personal free time between 10:30-12:30. Studies have suggested that this why empaths are largely night owls.

In thinking deeper into this I think when we fall asleep we go to a different place. Many spiritual and psychic people claim that when we sleep we astral travel to different worlds and dimensions. If so, this would be consistent as to why you and I feel an energy pick up after a lot of the world is off to sleep with their minds in another place.

empath depression


Empath

@womanwhowalks:

Excellent points. Except that you're talking about some advanced concepts that I don't think a lot of empaths know how to do. It took me quite a while to discern which is outside energy and which is my own. As it turned out the most depressing feelings I had were not my own. But they still made me feel upset and depressed so it was all very confused. When you're at that point, you just want to feel better. What ended up helping me was finding alternate methods to pull myself out of the dumps via grounding techniques. And I did that through salt baths, crystal work, and self-care (extra sleep, doing more enjoyable things like exercise outside etc...).

But if you could better explain your methods then maybe it's not as hard as I think it is to practice?

And while I do believe there are people out there who know how to practice psychic attacks, I also have seen with my own eyes people who have that ability and do it unknowingly. You know the type. The extremely jealous, or alpha male/female types. If you look at them wrong or try to threaten their dominance they strike with ugly looks, and words. My point being, there are a lot more psychic attacks going on then we can really quantify. And then add that to how many people are just unhappy in the world, and all of us poor empaths have a lot to overcome each day.

empath depression


Empath

Depression is a miserable thing to go through. I've been there many times so I feel for both of your. Especially when you can't identify the cause. And empath depression is just like that. You often can't figure out where the energy is coming from that is effecting you.

I've been reading a lot of books on negative energy and how it lowers a person's vibration. And in one book the author said that it's been proven that taking long showers releases negative energy. In fact the author cited the use of showers as being common relief prescribed for depressed patients by their psychiatrists. I was wondering if either of you would want to try that (although I know Karen has some water limitations). From my understanding, taking a shower while depressed is kind of like taking an aspirin while having a fever. The aspirin will make you feel better for 3-4 hours. I think the shower similarly gives you short term relief. But that in itself could be helpful.

empath depression


Empath

@spiritualskies:

As an empath when you are anxious and depressed, that's a red flag that your chakras are too open and you are taking on too much energy. The steps to feel better start with removing/grounding that energy. And then working on closing and better balancing your chakras.

I would normally suggest several daily salt baths. But you don't seem to do well with those (although that's normally the #1 helper in this situation for fellow empaths so you may want to continue to try it). Are you near a lake or ocean? A swim in either place helps (especially salty water of the ocean will help). Grounding is basically off-loading that low energy and refilling your own personal high vibrational energy. Some people do that through meditation. But honestly, it  happens when you are out in nature, and doing things that you love. Some empaths feel better going for nice hike out in the forest. But another good option is music. Empaths as a general rule are very positively impacted by music. I would suggest going outside with a headset on while listening to some of your favorite happy music. Or watch a favorite musical movie that you like. Just make sure you do all of these things by yourself. Even having one person with you interferes with your energy.

Crystals are also a great way to balance out your chakras. Which ones are you using now?

The 6 Types of Psychic Empaths


Empath

@cheshire-cat:

Very interesting that your empath skills work differently with complete strangers. It's the same for me. It works like an anti-virus scan for me. When meeting a new person my subconscious empath meter does a full scan, and when communicating with people that I already know, my subconscious does a mini-scan.

Remember, this was just subset list (covering more of the strong psychic empath traits). A full list of empath traits should look more like this:

  1. Human Knowing also called Claircognizance – You just seem to Know the answer
  2. Synesthesia – Senses working together. We all have this to some degree.
  3. Clairaudience – hearing words, tones
  4. Clairsentience or Psychometric Empath – Ability to receive information through touch and physical objects
  5. Clairvoyance – May actually see visual images, lights, colors
  6. Telepathic Empath – Ability to read a person’s mind
  7. Emotional Oneness - Emotionally Receptive Empath, may feel other person’s emotions as own
  8. Emotional Intuition – Know how someone is feeling
  9. Physical Oneness – or Physically Receptive – experience to their physical pain in your body.
  10. Physical Intuition or Medical Empath – Know information on another’s physicality and state of health
  11. Gustatory Giftedness – Smell & taste is highly developed. May even be able to see a photo or recipe and know exactly how the food will taste. Some also can immediately know how a particular wine will taste with the food.
  12. Analytical Awareness – Notices the mechanics of how things fit together
  13. Holistic Knowing – Can read more than one person at a time
  14. Truth Knowledge – Get pure info, present state
  15. Psychic knowing or Precognitive – Can see or feel events in the future, past or far away in space and time. Often shows up in dreams or as emotional or physical reactions. i.e. some feel anxiety or other emotions just prior to a major event.
  16. Geomantic or Earth Empath - Can feel or understand signals, energies or messages from earth. Many have the ability to predict natural disasters.
  17. Crystal or Stone Empaths – Feel and know the energy of stones, crystals, and gemstones
  18. Plant Empaths – Can communicate with plants – often are gifted gardeners, or work with flower essences.
  19. Fauna Empath aka Animal communicator – can hear and feel animals.

Empath

@curious-child:

If you worry about that you can of course go to a doctor to make sure your health is fine. But one component of being an empath is that you are highly sensitive. You are highly sensitive to emotional energy, and you are highly sensitive to your own body. Hell, we're over sensitive to just about everything. I've gone through similar periods of time when I could feel/hear my heart beat or pulse in an amplified manner. Thinking back I over-reacted thinking something was wrong and made it worse. I think I was unbalanced as an empath during those episodes. Now that I do a better job of keeping myself balanced and grounded, I don't really hear & feel blood pumping through my body anymore. Maybe the same will happen to you?

@curious-child:

You seem to have a pretty strong sense of intuition or knowing. I think that's a fun and useful skill to have. Does it work for you when you want to use it? Or are you like me where it really only works best subconsciously?

I also wonder since you seem to have directional intuition if you might be good at feeling people's physical pain? This works for me sometimes where I see someone who is trying to tough out something painful like cramps or an injury, and I can sense exactly where on their body the pain is coming from. This also works for me with my dogs where I can sense when there is stomach upset or joint pain and know where to locate it to help them. But this is a very minor skill for me that I need to work at to be more consistent.

@curious-child:

Aside from being empaths, we all have various psychic skills (as I'm sure you are aware). And you can develop these skills over time. I have a skill that is similar to yours that comes from the psychic side of things (but I'm not sure what to label it as other than maybe knowing). But if I am not directly thinking about something and hear a question that I normally would not know the answer to, quite often the correct answer will pop in my head. As an example, this happens quite often when I have a TV on in the background and I'm not really focused on it but do hear a question from a game show or whatever and immediately the answer pops up in my head. It's really fun. But is not something I control. Is this similar to what happens with you?

@hermes:

You are right on. I have to have a clear mind and almost be in a day dream like state for intuition to correctly work. If I try to focus on making it work, it rarely does. And when I really busy or stressed, it definitely shuts down.

I've been reading recently how well our psychic minds work in pre-sleep or when you are waking up. Thinking about things intuitively while waking up can be a little tricky since most people are out of it then. But during pre-sleep when your head hits the pillow you can test out your intuitive mind with greater chance of success. Just throw in a topic of concern in your mind and allow your pre-sleep intuition to kick in. It can be quite amazing.

@zacharias:

My Mom is a retired pastor. She has some psychic abilities. But she blocks it because it conflicts with her religious beliefs. And she struggles with talking to me about ghosts or my own empathy. So I know how that is. She's not changing any time soon (religions really close off the mind). I'm sure your Pastor is not going to want to believe this either. Plus, even if he did, he doesn't want that type of story to get out. People go to church to feel safe and worship. What does that say about the church that a demon or strong entity resides there? Trust me, he won't want to deal with that.

If you can, order that book I referenced. It's perfect for your situation. Entities like dark, quiet areas. But they are especially drawn to areas that are cluttered, have low energy, and have some decay (like a lot of trash around). You made it sound like that lady's office is a cluttered mess so that totally makes sense. 

The book I referenced goes into how overshadowing and possession happens. And it's not that easy for this to happen to anyone. Although children are at higher risk. So you should not be overly afraid. The book also talks about many tests the author has done with regard to running water in hoses and pipes. Running water with pipes anywhere (below or above ground) are a barrier most entities are unable to cross. And because of this many entities get trapped in buildings and are boxed in a range where water pipes flow. This is also why you wash your hands when you are anxious to feel better (any negative energy or entities will temporarily jump off you when you expose yourself to running water). This is also why anyone with psychic abilities feels better when taking a long shower. 

So the question you have is what to do? If you illuminate the area with sun light or bright lights, you'll just chase it away to any other dark areas of the building. So I'm not sure that accomplishes much. You need to know that their power grows as the night gets long (strongest just before dawn). Keep that in mind while doing tests. You could try to smudge the room at night while also doing your clearing exercises. But then it leaves a strong odor that you're going to have to explain the next day (a lot of people think smudge smoke smells like pot).

Has the entity come at you with a psychic attack yet? That's where you instantly feel sick and weakened and have sharp pains as if someone is knifing you? And does this entity seem to always keep to that room or do you feel it in other areas as well?

Can a church be haunted?


Psychic and Paranormal

@curious-child:

I go to church a couple times a month. And at least half the time I go I have trouble dealing with the human energy in the place. On the one hand it's a very positive up beat kind of message place with lots of music and fun. But crowds of people like that are always hard for me. And like you said, a lot of people go to church with all their issues in life as a way to feel better and connect with the community. And that's really hard on an empath.

@zachariasI've had my fair share of run-ins with spirits and entities and have to say their energy is different than humans. It's usually more intense and in my case my ears will ring or buzz when they are close. First off, a deceased human spirit is usually stuck here due to various low emotions (like grief, sadness, regret etc...). I can pick up on that most times. But from what I've read and experienced, some other types of entities don't usually give off an emotional signature. What they will do instead is make noises or move objects. Or make you feel really sick (headachy or naseous) or exhausted. Some people get hot or cold sensations that change like hot flashes. I've also had weird things like the hair on an arm or leg will stand up on end while the rest of my body stays normal. I have also been touched on many occasions. So there is a lot that can go on.

A few words of advice when dealing with these things: #1: Try your best not to show any low emotions. I know it's hard at first but when you hear a wall bang or a chair move or feel it close, don't react with fear or anger. They feed off of that and can drain you. (However, if you can somehow project love and happiness that very well could scare them off). #2: Know that they can telepathically hear your thoughts. So try not to focus on them as that also empowers them. Just ignore them. #3: If allowed, play happy upbeat music while you work. They don't like music, especially music that evokes love and happiness in humans. And if the church doesn't allow that then as 2nd best option I would see if you can at least play music through a headset so that you can maintain a happy high vibrational vibe. #4: Let the sunlight in and alternatively artificial lights on to help push them out of the room. They will hide in the shadows during the day so just know that. And on that note, I would suggest that you take your work breaks outside in the sun.

Let us know how it goes.

Can a church be haunted?


Psychic and Paranormal

@zacharias:

I just got done reading the below book to help me with the issues in my own home. It was a fantastic read, and I think you can benefit from it based on what is happening to you know and prior discussions that I have had with you.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1571746390/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The above book and in discussion with a shaman notes that most entities do not like crosses and religious areas. As a result I think most entities will avoid a church. However, the above book also talks about the fact that more advanced entities are not bothered by crosses or religion. As a result, I think some entities could exist there. 

From what I've learned from this book, entities like dark secluded areas like basements, attics etc... And they particularly like places in disarray or decay (old broken down buildings or areas where trash and decay build up). And they love places where there is a lot of sadness and low energy. I wouldn't think a church would be low energy with the exceptions being if there have been a lot of tragedy and funerals there. But overall a place of worship should be a more positive higher vibrational place.

I think you're going to have a tough time convincing a Baptist church leader that they have a ghost or entity problem. My Dad was raised Baptist and it was pretty strict and conservative. In fact one of his favorite jokes he likes to tell is that Baptists don't allow their young adults to have sex because it could lead to dancing (a fun way of poking fun at their old school no dancing rule for teenagers).

I think you probably already carry protection stones around. You should also probably buy a cross and keep it in your pocket for extra protection. And if you can do so without causing a problem, I would make sure you keep all main rooms well lit with sunlight where you can or at least with the lights on (entities reportedly hate sunlight and artificial light and will shy away from those rooms). I think in the long run you have to figure out if you can stand to work in such an environment.

Here's another decent read about energy vampires. This is slightly off-topic but was worth sharing due to the greater conversation of feeling better and raising our vibration:

Empath

@spiritualskies & @guitarherogod47:

I found the below article that explains the black hole effect of narcissists. And it goes into pretty good deal on how this all works and how you can heal yourself and pick yourself back up.

https://lonerwolf.com/empaths-and-narcissists/

@guitarherogod47, it definitely sounds like you are under the control of a narc. And spiritualskies, I re-read your posts and am not 100% sure of all the details. But it seems that something has attached to you and is drawing your energy and bringing you down. That could be a narc cord, or it could be something more spirit related (as I noted earlier). We empaths can also connect with greater consciousness and get really down and exhausted from community mood changes (like reactions to  shooting or violence). It's like a dark cloud that effects us for some time.

What I have learned as an empath is that at the end of the day, it's always about emotional energy with us. Who are you giving our energy to? Who is taking your energy? What type of energy do you pick up? How do you feel when your energy gets low? I think the best advice I can give to any empath is to recognize what lowers your vibration day to day. And then adjust your life and do self-care to raise your vibration to optimal levels. When your vibration is high, you are your happiest, and it's very hard for anything or anyone to bring you down once you are in that high vibrational state.

Empath

@curious-child:

You have an interesting take on the black-hole dynamic. I like it and I think we're describing the same event. I see it slightly different as more of a narc dynamic. Simply put, empaths give, and narcs take. We empaths will give the shirt off our back to help someone in need. And we all know a narc in our life who will openly say that they will take all they can get from this world and it matters not to them who they hurt along the way. So when you bring up the black hole analogy I immediately recognize that as a narc taking from you and lowering your naturally high vibration. You end up stuck in a low vibration existence until you can break free. And that's exactly what they do. However, when they take our energy and the energy of others, it doesn't disappear. It instead empowers the narc and literally gives them an energy high. They live for that take.

Empath

@curious-child:

That's a cool story. I'm glad you figured this out and that your life is better for it. I think in our society we hear about narcs, but don't cover the empath term. I only found out what am empath was and how well it matched with me when I was online searching to see what kind of mental illness I had. Thankfully discovering my empathy and how it all works saved the day and through some self-work cured me of my symptoms and problems. 

I did want to note for anyone reading that the empath-narc dynamic is an important one to recognize. It's very common for an empath to have a brother, sister, or parent who is a narc. And in the work place, having a narc boss or co-worker would be very difficult for an empath. Deep down narcs know we empaths see through them and they therefore cannot ever have us fully submit to them. It drives them crazy and that causes them to zero in on empaths. That's why narcs will bully empaths in an attempt to obtain dominance. So sometimes you have to change jobs or get away from family members just to get narcs out of your life. And then of course in an empath's love life a narc sneaks in through the illusion of love and acceptance.

Empath

@curious-child:

Empaths and narcissists have a bit of a hero vs. villain relationship. Some people refer to this as ying/yang (polar opposites attracting one another). Narcissists are attracted to empath energy. I have walked into social situations and watched some narcs go into an almost catnip type of trance around me. It's quite bizarre but I've tested this many times enough to draw this conclusion.

Empaths for some unknown reason are very drawn to narcissists. We're usually guarded at first but in many cases fall under the spell of their charms. And that always has an ugly story to go with it. The typical empath/narc relation goes like this: You hit it off and the empath falls deeply in love allowing their guard down and allowing the narc in close to attach. The narc is a bit like a mosquito in this example as they are sucking energy out of the empath while the empath is blinded by love. The relationship will start to have serious problems as the empath's vibration lowers from the energy drain. At that point the narc is close to tapping out all the empath's useful high vibrational energy and will break the relationship off in a usually cruel hurtful manner. The narc is then on to their next conquest and the emapth is left in pieces trying to crawl out of the deep depression low vibration state.

If you ask around, most empaths will have a story or two along these lines. The moral to the story is for empaths to be on the look-out for narcs and not let them into your life. That type is never useful to you. They are destructive. And they get in the way of you sharing your wonderful energy with people who do deserve it.

Empath

I think you mean energy vampires. Just know in your life these types of people will seek you out on a deep subconscious level. You have to always watch for them. 

Most often those people are narcissists. But sometimes it can be an emotionally damaged person. And that type can be especially draining. My mother-in-law is the later. And she over-shares her stories of being a victim and is quite proud of her victim tag that she shows the world. And while she is nice enough, I have to prepare and limit my time around her or she does a double whammy of dropping my vibration and making me physically exhausted. I'm sure all of you know people who are energy vampires. Best to avoid them or at least recognize them for what they are and limit your time with them. Protection stones do a decent job of limiting vampire damage. I also have to do a lot of grounding exercises and salt soaks after time spent with an energy vampire so that I can get my vibration back up and feel more like the happy version of myself.

@curious-child:

Once you start making yourself relax, unwind, and ground out, you'll get better at it. We're all busy, and busy helping others. But you have to make time for yourself or you can fall off a cliff emotionally. I look at it like a diabetic person lives their life. They have to manage their insulin daily to be at their healthy best. And we empaths need to do the same with self-care.

communicating with energy/static and generation


Psychic and Paranormal

@just-stevie:

Entities are well known to be able to hear your thoughts and intentions. It sounds like they like to keep you captive to benefit from your energy. And now that you are reaching out for help and advice, they don't like that and are trying to intimidate you. I don't know if it is any coincidence that things escalated with you after I shared that you should use running water and sunlight/bright artificial light to scare them away. They know you are thinking about getting rid of them.

I went through and continue to go through the same thing at my house. It's like a little war. I'll take steps to clear the place, and they don't like it and fight back.  It's a battle of wills. But it's your house so stay strong.

I was also wondering if you may want to try spending a night at a hotel across town or go on vacation. While entities can follow you around, the spider type you are describing tend to like staying put in their building of choice.

That's one of our biggest problems as empaths. We take care of others at the expense of ourselves. We have to force ourselves to work on ourselves or else we won't be in good enough shape to help anyone.

communicating with energy/static and generation


Psychic and Paranormal

@just-stevie:

Same with me. I had to suddenly replace a modem, wifi router, laptop, and corrupt software. And Cox had to completely replace the internet line from the street to my home because they couldn't figure out why it shorted out. And my house is pre-wired with some rooms having hardline internet connections. But the main hardline that brings the internet to the back half of our house is suddenly out. Cell phones that used to always work in the home are now acting strange. I'm convinced we have some entities here interfering.

I've done a lot of reading on entities and your spider things are referenced quite a bit. They don't line running water through pipes and also dislike sunlight. In extreme cases people are taking extra long garden hoses and laying them room to room creating a running water circuit to chase things out. Although that doesn't seem ideal for everyone. If you have an option to really open up curtains and let the sunlight in, the bright natural light will chase them away. Or you can add extra lamps and bright lights (they don't work as well as sunlight but come in at a close 2nd). Entities are energized by darkness and that's why they come alive as the darkness of night progresses. You can counter this with light.

If you are feeling overcome by these things then also try to take a long shower. They weaken and often jump off you in running water. A salt bath is another way to go. Just make sure you keep the water running while in the bath so you keep that water current going. I hope this helps!

Bird Signs?


Psychic and Paranormal

I didn't feel anything noteworthy when I first saw the bird. I was late to an appointment and was racing down the freeway. When I am in that "hurry up" mode I tend to block a lot of my normal empath abilities. But when it happened I was thinking wow that was really unusual. The bird was note only pristine white, it had a sparkle to it. And the way it floated in front of my car at such a high freeway speed seemed both magical and impossible. And within minutes of having this event I had that knowing feeling that I was just given some sort of message. The question remains what that message was. I guess only time will tell.
