I'm curious, how did the power failure stopped the intrusion of the outside world for you? Was it because technology was shut off (TVs, iPhones etc...)? Or was it something else?

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

In that link that I just posted, there is a paragraph that perfectly describes what may have been going on with that boy that your dogs didn't like. Here's part of it:

Clairvoyants, young children, animals, and anyone with an iota of intuition can sense the presence of demonically possessed individuals and will feel threatened, repulsed, and creeped out by them.

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.

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.

@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.

@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.

Seeing other worldly beings - Question

@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.

Seeing other worldly beings - Question


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.

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.

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.

@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?

@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.

@cheshire-cat:

The shaman told my wife today that our daughter has some amazing healing energy that she will put to great use later in her life. She thinks these dark entities want to keep her down and steal her ability to use her gift for good. The other side of it is that empaths in general seem to be at risk for attachments. These creepers seem to prefer our energy. I think at this point my poor daughter has had 15 entities removed in a week. And the first 8 to go had been there for many months to a year draining her and changing her personality. And her chakras are all out of alignment and she's so sensitive to energy that she can't even function at school. It's been a bit of a mess. But the shaman has been a great help and we're starting to win the battle eventhough spirits are fighting back.

She's a bit tied up right now trying to keep the entities away from my daughter while also teaching my daughter how to better protect herself. But she's trying to help us find someone reliable locally to come examine my property and close off and clean out any unwanteds.

I'm dealing with the exact same thing myself. I consulted with a shaman to help close the portal.

@cheshire-cat:

I don't know about lay lines or anything else. We are original owners of this home that was built 18 years ago. Before my wife and I had kids we really didn't see or hear any ghosts (and that was also way before I awakened as an empath). But once my kids were born they would both would tell us about all of the weird stuff they would see. And both my kids are empath teens so as they have grown up the things they see and hear have continued. My daughter is particularly talented in her abilities.

Over the years we've had ghosts and some poltergeist activity where things move in front of our eyes. But for the most part our visitors have made some noises and have mostly left us alone. So we've learned to just share the space. However, my 14 year old daughter has recently been struggling with depression and constant anxiety. We're having her treated by doctors but they are having trouble medically explaining the problem. We recently found a shaman who is helping us and she found a portal on our property. She closed that and removed 8 entity attachments that were draining my daughter. But in the last two weeks she has had to return to remove more new entities from my daughter. She now says that in the last week the entities have dramatically increased in our home and they appear to be fighting back against the work we are doing to remove them. So we're in a bit of a war right now. I have noticed a bad vibe in my home over the past week and hear some new annoying sounds in the walls and ceilings. And now I'm seeing those lights at night. I did want to mention that the shaman told us that she believes that there were native american ceremonies that were practiced on our land a long time ago that may have created the portal. And now she that she closed one portal she is wondering if there are others since she sees spirits just pouring in. 

If anyone has any experience they can add to help me or send any love and light my way I sure could use it right now.

@just-stevie:

It's just like you said, I'm being woken up not by the light itself but as if an alarm is going off in my head to wake up. And then I immediately see the light. I do not ever see any shapes or shadows. But I hear them. They make noise usually by what sounds like a hand slap against a wall or ceiling or a loud pressure pop sound.

Seeing Strange Lights

@cheshire-cat:

I saw the smoky green light one time. Other times I've seen larger white balls of light in same area. But the the small white tinkerbell-like light I've seen most nights recently in the same place above my bed (and always after 2AM). What's the deal with that time anyway? 

I have not seen a light above my bathroom, but almost nightly for about 2 years I hear banging above the bathroom when I walk by. There is a lot of noise in that area day and night that responds to me being in the room. And it is not just the house creaking. It creeps me out a little.

Does the empath have a purpose?


Empath

@crystalsage:

At our core we are healers. Some people call us energy exchangers. We take away people's stuff and exchange it with our high vibrational energy. We make everyone feel better around us. How many times has someone told you "you're an amazing listener, I always feel better after talking to you". That's your healing powers at work.

Everyone has a life path. I would say a pretty high percentage of people don't fully find their life path and don't realize their potential or the assignment that they were sent here to do. Humanity is so much more distracted these days and have become more disconnected from each other and spirit. But for empaths our life path is more pronounced. When you start the empath awakening process it is like a kick in the teeth. It's painful since you feel so intensely. Eventually we all learn to ground and hone and control our gifts. And I think our place in this world is to heal and lift up mankind.

Seeing Strange Lights


Psychic and Paranormal

A few years ago I saw strange lights coming out of my bedroom TV in the middle of the night. The TV was off and room was completely dark, but it looked as if someone was inside the TV with a flashlight pointed at me. And the light grew brighter and larger as they got closer from the vantage point of the screen. This went on for a week and then stopped. The whole thing was surreal and has been a mystery to me.

This past week I awoke to a smoky green light emanating from my shower (that is across the room from my bed). It glowed for about 10 minutes and then disappeared. And then the next night there was a baseball sized white light shining from inside my shower. And then every night since then I either see a white light in my shower or in the lightbulb case attached to my ceiling fan above my bed. This white light is small and strange. A light would normally shine more and cast a shadow on the wall. But this is a small white light that just glows and doesn't look quite right. It's almost like tinkerbell looked in the old Peter Pan cartoons.

I'm not sure if these lights or bad or good. I don't feel fear when I see them. But at the same time I don't know what to make of them. They are not floating orbs and generally sit in a fixed position. And these lights always wake me up between 2:05-2:20AM each night. They usually disappear after 10 minutes. I'm just curious if anyone has any idea what these things are and why I am being visited each night?

(Side note: We've had spirit activity in our home for well over a decade. Most seem to just be passing through and don't bother us. I have seen orbs before. What I'm describing are stationary lights and are not orbs as far as I can tell).

My daughter is struggling


Empath

@zacharias:

I'm sorry to hear that you are going through this. Ironically (at least for me), I'm going through the exact same thing with my 14 year old daughter. My daughter has had a real tough time being at school around the other kids. She is a very strong empath. Her vibration has been off and it's too intense for her to be around other kids most days.

The challenge for you and anyone in your situation is that modern society and modern medicine is not equipped to really help with this type of spiritual situation. But in my case we have made some progress with my daughter with some steps that we took as follows:

1) We took her to my naturopathic doctor who examined her and did blood work to see if there are any physical reasons that she is so anxious all of the time. 

2) We have her going to a therapist specializing in teenagers every week. This part has been very helpful. No matter how close you are with your kids, there are some things they just won't tell you. Having her go to a therapist has become the highlight of her week. She really trusts this person & the progress is very evident.

3) This 3rd one is the real key to our situation with identifying how her vibration got so low to put her in the frantic anxiety state that she has been in. Through all of the anxiety and depression that my daughter has gone through, I have noticed a gradual progression of darkness in her life. I've been watching her normally high empathic vibration sink to a low depressed vibration right before my eyes. After doing some research I found that children are especially vulnerable to entities attaching to them. These entities wait until there are cracks in their aura and attach. And like leeches they suck the energy out of them and over time lower the kid's vibration and change their personality. So I suspected this was the case with my daughter. I found a shaman online that specializes in kids. I scheduled an hour on the phone with this shaman and she found 8 entities attached to my daughter and went through to remove all of them. It was interesting to hear her describe most of the entities. As she would describe the energy of these entities we could correlate it to various behaviors that we had been seeing with our daughter (bitter anger, sadness etc...). There was even one entity that had been intentionally sabotaging her electronics. We found this last one very interesting since because my daughter has had 3 straight iphones and other electronics mysteriously stop working around her over the past year. 

The shaman we worked with is Mary Deveneau and her website is http://yourspiritguide.com/ . You book an hour with her and she'll connect with your daughter's spirit guides to try to get to the bottom of what is going on.

I hope this helps you and your situation. I will say that this has not been a quick fix. We got rid of the entities that attached. But there is no guarantee that other new entities won't try attaching again. And 14 year old drama and cruelty at school that she deals with isn't going away either. So every week has been a series of baby steps with our daughter in teaching her to protect and defend herself. And she has had some days where her behavior has slipped a bit and I've had to help her ground and pull her back. But it is really hard being a teenager and an empath. We're teaching her to use protections stones, grounding techniques, and having a focus on proper sleep as a way to combat this.

I hope this helps you. Hang in there!

Pet Spirit Stories Wanted


Psychic and Paranormal

@bill-walker:

Great topic. Years ago I had a golden retriever named Bailey. My wife and I had two young kids back then and our dog Bailey was like a nanny. She would follow the kids room to room to make sure they were accounted for and okay. She was so in charge that she could not rest without knowing where every member of the family was at all times. She was a truly special dog.

Bailey unfortunately died of cancer at age 11. And for several months after she passed my wife and I would sometimes see her ghost running through the hallways. And my wife had several dreams about her. And when she woke from those dreams she could feel a warm spot on the carpet next to the bed where Bailey slept while alive. A couple years later my wife spoke with an animal communicator who told her that Bailey was still with us and had not crossed over. She said that Bailey was so worried about the family that she chose to stay behind to watch over us. We did get confirmation later that she did finally cross over. I look forward to seeing her again some day.

P.S.- I'll set this aside for a few days and will email you a version in more detail.

Negative CoWorkers


Empath

@sashacat1995:

A couple years ago I managed an office where I was the only guy with 5 women. And one of the women was best described as an alpha female with anger issues. And she was a very unhappy person who would manipulate the other ladies and create factions that would fight with one another. It was a complete viper pit. I snuck some rose quartz stones and placed 5 of them around her desk and in other areas of the office. And for a while it really did calm things down to where the environment really was better. But eventually her evilness prevailed and her rage was more than I could subdue. So I had to fire her. But if your friend is more of a reasonable person, you may want to try the rose quartz near her desk and see if you can tame her a bit.

I regularly use about 30 crystals and stones for various effects in my life. And I have never used howlite. What do you like about that one?
