extreme restlesness


Empath

@spiritualskies:

One more thing in addition to the salt bath. The next time you start feeling like that, go get some physical activity. Go for a walk or run, or jump on a tread mill. Activity will help get your adrenaline out of you. When you feel something shift like that where you are overcome by an energy, your physical body starts going fight or flight mode and floods you with adrenaline. The adrenaline has no where to go and will keep you in a state of anxiety and restlessness for hours. But you can short cut that quite a bit by burning off the adrenaline with exercise. And secondly, exercise releases your endorphins which help raise your vibration.

When feeling off or under attack, my advice is to get some exercise. And then follow it up immediately with a salt bath. And if what is going on is weakening you too fast, then I'd just start with the salt bath first. 

Good luck. And let us know how you're feeling now.

Empath

@spiritualskies:

I'm going to give you different advice based on your descriptions. First off, I agree with @crystalsage

Do a salt bath at least once a day until you start feeling better. Use 1-2 cups of sea salt or rock salt in the bath water. Using a salt bath is a very effective empath trick to strip your body and soul of negativity. It's a very effective grounding technique. 

I think there is a decent chance you may have something unseen trying to attach to your aura to draw on your energy. You're probably going to think I'm a little crazy, but I have had this happen to me and my daughter on several occasions. And I've met many empaths who reported the same scenarios. And according to many shamans it is very common for empaths to deal with attachments throughout their lives. Not to scare you, but empaths are common targets for spirits and entities. Sometimes they will attach to you and you'll feel off, headachy, in a funk. You'll know it because you won't feel yourself. You will start having unusual physical pains or oddities. I have had what you describe in the form of restless leg syndrome that even made the hair on my legs stand up on end for hours. It went away after a day but then the damage was done and I started to feel weak, sad, and off for many days. The salt bath will also help with this type of event and will weaken the attachment or scare it off completely. They do not like salt or running water.

P.S.- We empaths are most vulnerable to attachments when we are feeling sad and your vibration lowers. I am particularly sensitive to the unseen. And when I am feeling worn out or sad/low vibration, these suckers move on me like an army. They can't really get you when you are high vibration and happy. But when you are low it's open season. I now do salt soaks every few days just to keep my grounding balance and vibration high.

Bird Signs?


Psychic and Paranormal

I keep having weird coincidences lately, and signs. Most of the signs I am getting can be described as angel numbers that I see when I am compelled to look at a clock. Sometimes I'll see these angel numbers on my cell phone or on license plates. Most of the numbers I am seeing are 911, 1111, 444, 66. I've looked up the numbers online and their meanings seem to fit with how my spirituality is once again transitioning. My psychic abilities have accelerated over the past 3-4 months. I have a handle on all of the above, but this next part was very new. And I thought I'd share it with the community to try to find meaning and similarities to anything any of you have experience.

While on the freeway yesterday I had a white bird soar gracefully in front of me. Considering that I was driving at about 70 MPH it's hard to explain how it flew by me but yet kept in front of me to give me a good look at it (normally birds zip on by in a flash due to their speed and the car speed). But this bird seemed to defy physics with the way it flew in front of me left to right and then held in front of me in a slow arch that gave me about a 3 second look at it. It was as white of a bird as I've ever seen in my life (perfectly clean bleached white). And after it flew by I was thinking that's weird, when was the last time I saw a white bird like that around the desert? How about never. Most of the birds out here in the Phoenix desert are grey or dark like quail. It was odd because aside from this bird being perfectly white, it looked like a dove, but soared in front of me like a hawk. Doves don't fly like that so the whole event struck me as odd and noteworthy. And I don't think we even have white doves in the valley due to our hot temps. But I'm also pretty sure it was not a dove because it seemed bigger than that (almost the size of a sea gull, and sea gulls also don't live here). The size of the bird, its majestic white color, and odd gliding flight path that seemed to be impossible given my speed, all struck a chord with me.


I looked this up online wondering if I would find any relevance. And here is what I found:


Angels Appearing as Birds


Angels are associated with birds more than any other type of animal because angels who appear to humans in their heavenly glory sometimes feature wings. Wings symbolize both the spiritual covering of God's care for people and the freedom and empowerment people gain from spiritual growth.


Sometimes, angels may even appear in the physical form of earthly birds, if doing so can help them best convey the messages God has given them to deliver to people.

In his book, "A Small Book of Angels," Eugene Stiles writes: "As with angels, some birds are symbols of uplift and peace (the dove, the eagle).



If this bird was sent as some sort of message, I can't seem to identify what the message is. Has anyone else experienced anything similar with birds or animals appearing that don't seem to belong at that moment?

Empathy absorbed?


Empath

@crystalsage:

You mentioned hematite. A lot of empaths love that one. Although quite a few people like me feel a bit off with that one. And for best protection you really need 3-4 protection stones on you as they all do different things and work better together. Here are my "take everywhere" protection stones:

Black obsidian, black onyx, black tourmaline, and malachite

As a guy, it's hard to wear crystals and stones as jewelry without getting a lot of questions and weird looks. So I like to get these stones in about the size of a marble each that I keep in a small pouch in my pocket. The black tourmaline is probably the most popular and effective one of the bunch. But I really like malachite because it absorbs negative energies and pollutants from the atmosphere and from the body.  I specifically like that malachite pulls the negative out of me. 

I was told that if a crystal makes me feel off that I should stick with it for a few days to see if I will adapt. But hematite really made me sick so I couldn't deal with that one. But good for you for sticking it out and making it work.

I do get a lot of strange intermittent pains through my body as a result of being an empath. But I have never felt pain from crystals and protection stones. The closest to pain that I have experienced was that example I gave earlier where hematite made me feel really nauseous and dizzy. Every once in a while a new crystal will give off an electric buzz feeling in my hands. But for the most part, my crystals and stones don't make me physically feel anything. But spiritually, they work wonders. I feel balanced and energized and have no problem being out in crowded areas or in hostile environments. However, I will say that crystals and stones are kind of like sun screen where if you put sun screen on and spend 7 hours in full sun at the beach you're probably still getting burned. If I am in an intense or very people busy place for a long time, I find that about 30% of the negative energy from people around me still gets through to me. But that means my crystals and stones are blocking 70% of what I would take in without them so I'll take those odds. They've made a big difference allowing me to be in public while being balanced.

I did want to note that I've read books by several shamans and spoken to other empaths who are totally against using anything to block or mute energies. They claim that God gave us these gifts and we are to use what we feel to help others around us and transmute their energy (heal the world so to speak). And I do get that to a point. But when negative energy comes in at uncontrollable levels and debilitates you, that is where you have to find a way to block or manage it. And for many, crystals and stones are the answer.

@crystalsage:

Returning energy back to sender is a higher level psychic skill. From what I understand it is very hard to learn and get good at. It takes a lot of instruction and practice and you have to keep a high vibration as it is really hard to do when you are feeling low or anxious. So I think what @nea is referring to is that it isn't something that she can teach you to do on a message board. But there are quite a few online classes where you can sign up and learn skills like that. Here's one I found online for reference. I am not endorsing this person as I found this link at random just as an example pf what is out there. I wish you good luck with finding a solution that works for you.

Shielding yourself


Empath

@crystalsage:

Crystals are like food, some you like, some you don't. I was in a crystal store just over a year ago and picked up a hematite sphere the size of a baseball. And I immediately got vertigo and felt nauseous and the whole room was spinning. I put it down and I felt fine. I tried picking it up several times with the same effect. It was just too powerful for me. I did read that when a stone's vibration is really strong and above your own that you will often feel overwhelmed by it. In theory you would be able to handle it when you are really relaxed and at high vibration. But my take is if it doesn't feel good, it's not for you. Some of my most effective crystals and stones don't give me any physical feeling one way or another. But they work. In fact, I forgot my protection stones during a work day about a month ago and predictably had a challenging empath today. I won't make that mistake again.

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.

communicating with energy/static and generation


Psychic and Paranormal

@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.

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.

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.

Psychic and Paranormal

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

@womanwhowalks:

I don't believe any of them were the baddest of the bad kind (D Word which I currently don't like to say out loud). But during our initial meeting she was able to get 7 out of 8 entities to cross over to the light. But there was one that was uncooperative that she said instead was forced to relocate it out in the desert. I was concerned about it coming back.

Your story is very interesting. As it turns out children, particularly teens, are very susceptible to entity attachments.

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.

@cheshire-cat:

I too am sorry for your struggles. I hope you are not in too much discomfort.

It is definitely hard at times being an empath. I used to be able to pick up on people's good happy energy. But over the years I seem to just pick up on more and more of people's bad stuff. It's like we are bad stuff magnets. So like you I find it harder and harder to interact with people.

@just-stevie:

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 think I might have a portal in my house how do I close it


Psychic and Paranormal

@nocturnes-angel:

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. She suggested that we must have more portals on our property but wasn't able to find them remotely. 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?

@womanwhowalks:

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.

@womanwhowalks & @spiritualskies:

I haven't experienced zapping humans except on occasion when I'll be on carpet with socks that are very conductive and zap a person or see the sparks fly as I ground out the charge on a wall. But, I do get zapped by spirits all the time. It feels more like a bee sting or fire ant bite to me. It's usually on my legs and happens most often when I am relaxing watching TV in my family room. 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?

Mental health and empath are intertwined. It's very easy for an empath to be diagnosed as having mental health issues like bi-polar and depression where its the empathy that in many cases is causing that. Did you have specific questions?

Tools for Empaths

I deal with daily lower-mid stomach issues from being an empath. And I also deal with anxiety, depression, and fatigue every now and then when times get tough. 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.

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.

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.

@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.

@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.
