How does an empath heal?


Healers

Hi Hopeful,

Sounds like you should be teaching others to heal!

You are obviously a natural! ... with a great deal of understanding!

No arguments from me about healing another person without their consent. I normally would for most people under other circumstances but you are a nurse working in a hospital. You are there to help people to heal! And if you are willing to "ask" if it appropriate for each patient, then great!

So my question is about feeling drained. Are you connecting up (to Source, God, the Divine, Universal energy) and connecting down (into the Earth) before during and after you heal other people?

If not, then this is probably why you are feeling so drained. You are using your own energy not Universal energy.

If you are connecting up and down and still feeling drained, Hmmmmm. We'll talk more.

Welcome here to the EC!

Blessings,

Trevor

More of a curse then a gift. Any advice?


Empath

This question seems to come up in one form or another every few weeks here (apologies to repeat readers). You are in the right place! You are not crazy! You are no longer alone, you are now part of a community that has been where you are!

Some material for you to get you going...

  1. Elise'sEmpath Survival Program.
  2. Donna Eden'sZip Up Technique (at 7:15 in the video)
  3. theTools for the Empathgroup
  4. Thriving As An Empath - "we suffer as empaths when we are only in receptor mode, we thrive as empaths when we step into healer mode". The technique in this paper is my own favorite for reasons that will be obvious when you go there. I personally use this technique every day and many of the people I have shared this with have had a lot of success with the exercise contained here. The main principle here is that it is about reversing the flow so that instead of from-them-to-you it becomes from-Source-through-you-to-them. Try it every day for a week (preferably multiple times a day) and you WILL feel different!

For some people being an empath feels like a liability now but it is a gift, an honor and a privilege to have this ability. Enjoy reading the articles.

Blessings,

Trevor

I MUST get something off my chest


Empath

Hi Eva: a long post but for me a couple of sentences stand out...

We are meant to group together in our communities and start helping our communities because only together can we actually be powerful.

Alone we can heal a few, together our limitations are boundless

I totally agree!

I have been saying this quietly for a couple of years now. The Guides started emphasizing this at the end of last year and I am starting to share this more openly here in Asheville. For the many empaths here who are isolated in small towns, know that even being part of this community is an important step.

Eva, thank you for adding your voice!

Blessings,

Trevor

Not sure if my head pain is coincidence or related to my poorly niece


Empath

Gem,

If the pressure in your head is getting worse with the Conduit of Light exercise (see Thriving As An Empath for those of you unfamiliar), please make sure that you are grounded first.

Its a step that I have added in as the first step recently. It is making a big difference for those people who were reporting issues with the exercise.

Basically ...

Imagine that you are growing roots from your legs, through the soles of your feet, deep deep down into the center of the Earth. Theyre flexible too, so that you can lift your feet and the roots will follow you. Try it at home first then youll be able to do it while you carry on a conversation too! It may feel a little weird at first to do this while you are in any form of moving vehicle but that will pass with practice! Its your imagination - make it work for you and keep practicing.

Let me know how you get on.

Blessings,

Trevor

Now what?


Empath

Hi Ashley,

I started realizing that I had been a lifelong empath in 2012. Shortly after, "They" started showing me how to do healing work. Although I never do my full emotion clearing work without explicit permission from both The Guides and from the recipient, I do send light and energy to the people from whom I "pick up stuff"

I regard picking up their stuff as the request for support.

Some people have told me that I shouldn't be sending ANY light and energy without permission. I regard that as over the top. It's almost like saying you shouldn't smile at people you pass on the street without permission. There is a time, a place and a right way for everything.

You have to decide for yourself what feels right for yourself.

Bottom line though - for me, being an empath is not the destination. It is a signpost on the road to becoming a healer (some people will want me to rephrase that as "becoming a facilitator of healing" which is longer but more accurate).

Hope this helps,

Trevor

Do I fit the label "empath"?


Empath

I agree with Rene'.

There are lots of versions of "99 traits of an empath" out on the internet. My favorite 7 questions are:

  • Were you described as an over-sensitive child?

  • Do you pick up energy from other people?

  • Do you feel worse when you are around crowds?

  • Do you find it hard to watch the news or sad/violent movies?

  • Do you sense when someone is not telling the truth?

  • Do you have mood swings for reasons that you often dont understand and cant control?

  • Do you have other experiences that modern science cant explain (such as telepathy, knowing future events, or knowing current events happening far away)?

So yes, "poster child for empaths" describes you well!

Welcome! Your vibe tribe is here!

Empath

Hi Blink,

I seem to be posting this every few weeks here (apologies to repeat readers). I am glad you are using Elise'sEmpath Survival Program. A few other pointers:

  1. Donna Eden'sZip Up Technique
  2. theTools for the Empathgroup
  3. Thriving As An Empath - "we suffer as empaths when we are only in receptor mode, we thrive as empaths when we step into healer mode". The technique in this paper is my own favorite for reasons that will be obvious when you go there AND IT WAS GIVEN TO ME BY THE GUIDES SPECIFICALLY FOR A FRIEND WHO WAS GOING TO A FUNERAL. I personally use this technique every day and many of the people I have shared this with have had a lot of success with the exercise contained here. The main principle here is that it is about reversing the flow so that instead of from-them-to-you it becomes from-Source-through-you-to-them.

Post for us all when you are going to the funeral and we can all send you supportive energy.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

Vegetarianism


Empath

I'm with John. I was vegetarian for 15 years and went back to eating meat for health reasons about 20 years ago. My body does better for it. And Merin, you are right, all life is sacred. There is a reason why every tradition blesses their food, be it indigenous cultures or any of the major religions.

Hi, welcome!

Yes, it's great to be in a community here that validates who we really are and understands.

Would you be willing to share your own technique for handling the ability? It would be good for everybody here to know what others are doing. Although there is already much information in that direction already available here, there are lots of newbies who would benefit from all the help they can get.

Blessings,

Trevor

Is this ability to discern others genetic?


Empath

If you are asking if the tendency towards being an empath flow with the bloodline as an inherited characteristic of our DNA, I am sure the answer is yes!

However, can it be cultivated (aka learned) in addition? Again, yes. Although it may be more accurate to say that it can also be unlearned; babies are natural empaths and we are socialized into identifying ourselves as separate from others. Our wider Western culture regards (or used to regard) everything we know about being empaths as being an active imagination (in children) or just B.S. (in adults).

I am sure it is a combination of the two and I believe that many of us on this site can look at our families and see traits of being an empath in our relatives. It is often said that it flows more through the female bloodline than the male although it may be more accurate to say that the women are more likely to a acknowledge and manifest the ability.

P.S. if, as RyuukoGo asked, you meant something different by "Discern" then my apologies!

Blessings,

Trevor

Sensing Another Person's High


Empath

Do you have to be in the same room and visually aware of them?

Let me explain. Some writers have, incorrectly, started associating mirror neurons with being an empath. These are the same neurons that fire in the brain regardless of whether the subject is performing a specific action or else watching someone else perform that same action. The neurons mirror the behavior as if the observer were themselves. For people who have synesthesia - the experience of one sense when receiving stimulus through a different sense this can, for instance, cause them to experience tasting food while watching somebody else eating. However, it is not correct to associate mirror neurons with being an empath. Visual proximity is not involved in the process. An empath can sense somebody elses emotions regardless of being in the same room, or even on the same continent.

What other experiences of being an empath do you have?

Does the word 'empathy' apply to Empaths?


Empath

OK! Lets get the semantics out of the way. No-one heals anybody else. There are no healers of other people. There are only people who help to facilitate other people to heal themselves. So, being pedantic, there are no healers, there are only facilitators of healing. That said, if we are all agreed that when we talk about the word healer we mean a facilitator of healing, it is easier to use one word rather than three.

So, yes! I'm a healer :-)

Empath

You've really already got it!

The way I explain it is (and this is only a cut and paste of what is essentially a paraphrase of what you wrote)...

Being empathic (or empathetic) means a personal identification with the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of others. Tell me about what you are going through and I can empathize if I have gone through the same, or very similar, life experience.

Being an empath, and especially being an impaired empath, means taking on the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of others as if they were ones own even before there is any conscious awareness of what is happening and regardless of whether I have gone through the same or similar life experience or not.

Retreat for Empath


Empath

OK, how we as human beings use and understand words is always challenging. Without Elise Lebeau's leadership you and I wouldn't even be communicating. Without the leadership of Elise and the moderators on this site, the site would have disintegrated under the weight of inappropriate discussions long ago.

Even within the partnership societies of indigenous communities, the wisdom of the elders is accepted as a basis for leadership.

And without your leadership, my initial comments would have gone unchallenged.

I acknowledge and appreciate your leadership by whatever name you care to call it. Thank you, Lotusfly!

Respectfully, Lotusfly, I think you misunderstand my intentions although I understand your anxiety. The world needs leaders who empower other people not control. Admittedly, in the "normal" world leadership has come to equal control. We need to change that, absolutely. But the world needs people who are willing to step up and take responsibility (take responsibility, not take control)... that is the starting point of being a leader.

Whoever is going to step up and organize the retreat is providing leadership.

If we got a dozen people together I would be thrilled ... and the starting point for the retreat would be "leave and personal drama at the door (it probably isn't yours anyway)" followed quickly by grounding, shielding and protection techniques.
I do understand than none of us are used to handling large groups well - although I am starting to get used to the idea in and around Asheville.

Empath

That's a really interesting question Martha!

I have just started a Meetup group for Empaths in Asheville, NC. It's a remarkable town but that's another story, suffice to say that it has an amazingly high density of Light Workers as well as being THE trendy tourist destination for 2015 in America.

I started the Meetup group (as a public service - not for profit) with few expectations but it has grown to 115 members in a matter of days.
See http://www.meetup.com/Calling-all-Empaths-and-Highly-Sensitive-People-HSPs/.

Asheville would be a fabulous location for an empath retreat. How much interest would there be for a weekend gathering here?

Oh OK. She is running along the same lines as I share in my post Thriving As An Empath.

What she calls an "identifier", I call a "passive receiver" someone who realizes they are taking on the energy of others but has still to take on the role of "active healer".

Not sure that I like her semantics but we only differ on use of terms.

For you, installed "I am willing to face the world".

Using Conduit of Energy for Max is fine. You are sending him Diving energy, not your own.

Could you make a game of it with him? Take it in turns to send each other Divine energy. Teach him to "pull down" energy and send it to you, and then you do the same for him?

Hello, new here and feeling unsettled.

Hi Brid:

Welcome to our weird world of Empaths!

So many of us have thought we were going crazy! In fact, you're sane ... the world around us is nuts!

How do you really know if you are an Empath? - Your description of yourself matches perfectly. There are lots of online tests but after 59 years of being an empath (OK, I only knew that in recent years), believe me! you're an empath.

is there anyway to turn it off? Better to get it under control!

Here is my standard reply to that question:

Creating a Personal Block: My way of coping and my journey thus far


Empath

You are SO in the right place. Welcome.

My take is that of course you are scared of stepping into your power. Most of us feel or have felt the same way.

Look at the history of what has been done to the mystics, shamans, prophets, medicine people over the centuries.

We have been murdered, tortured, persecuted through countless lifetimes. Even in the good lives, many of us abused our power in ways that caused us to say "never again".

This lifetime is our chance to turn that around. Never has it been safer for us to step into our true selves. Never has there been so many of us connected together to do this work together, supporting each other, guiding each other, keeping each other safe.

NOW IS THE TIME!

Many blessings,

Trevor

For some people being an empath feels like a liability now but it is a gift, an honor and a privilege to have this ability. Enjoy reading the articles.

P.S. My own lifetime depression left me in my early thirties ... when my father left my mother to go live with his childhood sweetheart!

Blessings,

Trevor

how not to absorb other people's emotions


Empath

Hi Belle:

This question seems to come up in one form or another every few weeks here. You are in the right place! You are no longer alone, you are now part of a community that has been where you are!

Some reading material for you to get you going...

  1. Elise'sEmpath Survival Program.
  2. Donna Eden'sZip Up Technique
  3. theTools for the Empathgroup
  4. Thriving As An Empath - "we suffer as empaths when we are only in receptor mode, we thrive as empaths when we step into healer mode". The technique in this paper is my own favorite for reasons that will be obvious when you go there. I personally use this technique every day and many of the people I have shared this with have had a lot of success with the Conduit of Energy contained here. The main principle here is that it is about reversing the flow so that instead of from-them-to-you it becomes from-Source-through-you-to-them. Try it every day for a week (preferably multiple times a day) and you WILL feel different!

Welcome to the EC

Crystals


Empath

Not strictly a crystal but this is my favorite personal story in this vein from earlier this year:

I was participating in a weekend retreataweekbefore my 87 year old mother died. For one exercisethe facilitator sent us offon a huntto find meaningful rocks.

I felt directed away from the group down the driveway and onto the road. I looked down at the road building chippings by the side of the road and saw one that looked like it would make a goodpendulum orpendant. Really, ordinary roadside rocks? Youve got to be kidding me.

I picked it up along with two of its colleagues and headed back up to the house. I felt jealous as the rest of the group shared their stories about how they found their perfect rocks and crystals. Come on! I picked up ordinary road building chippings. I cant have done this exercise right.

I chose not to share with the group the process I went through to find myownrock.

By the third day after the retreat, the rock was callingtome to be worn round my neck. OK then! So what is this rock? I went out to the internet to find out what rocks are used in road building. Not limestone, not granite. Basalt!Next, what are the qualities of basalt? I found an interesting page on the web but, honestly, although the qualities sounded useful I really didnt connect with them. Not until I had worn the basalt rock around my neck every day for a week. Not until the day after my mother had rejoined our ancestors when I went back and reread the qualities of basalt. Not until I was in the middle of adjusting to the grieving process did I understand the words. I quote, This strong rock lends its strength and endurance to people as they try to continue in difficult times or deal with traumatic changes.

I wore that rock round my neckevery dayforovertwo weeks until the pendant broke. We were gathered at my mothers house with family and friends for a small celebration of her life. The pendant brokefive minutes before I started my eulogy for my mother. The rock landed on the floor. It had done its work.
