What do empaths do for a living?


Empath

Thanks cat whisperer... I was thinking along maybe starting a small restaurant or something with my fiancé since he's a cook and we work well together and not just including our 4 children our immediate family is big also so it could be a family business sort of.  His family is full of hard workers but I know he's had rough patches with people hiring him until he started cooking but they really missed out on hiring him cause he a hard worker and will work overtime and cover shifts etc. They just didnt hire him for a few years for no reason. He has no felonies, tattoos, etc.  It was just hard for men in their 20's to find a job at the time and our family need a job where the job is flexible. So,  maybe a family business to prepare our kids when they get old enough and that works well for the family so they can do their jobs and still have a life, make money with little to no drama is going in a good direction. His dad needs work but had a injury that prevents him or limits him and his mom needs a flexible job so it may suit everybody's needs around people we love.  His parents have done a lot to help us so this is sort of my way to help give a little back. And he and I will feel like we've accomplished something that helps or loved one's because we know their strengths and such so that's beneficial. And his sister is a manager right now so she can help and I'm use to handling the paperwork and schedules are my expertise so it feels like a doable dream.

What do empaths do for a living?


Empath

Currently I'm a stay at home mom but one job I hope to go back to that I loved was was waitressing. But not at night time.  Night time waitressing was mostly drunk people from the bar down the street. People full of negative energies or emotional wrecks.  Good for tips but horrible for a empath. And the night shift where I worked was 10 hour shifts.  I was a awesome was waitress and liked day time better people were friendlier and in the right state of mind.  When I left and my fiancé was a cook for same restaurant on the same shift he left with me so their 3rd shift took a down fall I heard after he and I left. Customers loved when him and I worked together we are an awesome team but gotta find a waitress pay that contributes more than $4 an hour. Maybe soon again him and I can team up again. He still cooking at another place but with our kids schedules aren't meeting up.  But,  it was fulfilling to me which is odd because being a mom of 4 ages 6-2 years old I do nothing but serve food and clean up messes but I enjoyed it was able to get to know some sweet older regulars who just wanted coffee usually but more calm energies so it was easy to be around them and listen to their stories and such. But,  maybe I'm unique nobody usually enjoys waitressing but throughout all my jobs I liked it better than them all. I'm only in my 20's though so I've got some time in between to find many jobs or maybe build onto my enjoyment in serving and maybe management or owning a small restaurant. Not sure yet but thought I could maybe help. Hope you find a fulfilling career or job that you feel great doing soon.  Blessed Be

Lesson from my mind


Empath

Last night out of nowhere after hearing we did loud noises echoing throughout the night my mind got a lesson from remembering.  What normally I would call an anxiety attack I realized was my power.  I started feeling dread and impending doom to where I was looking online for worldwide news (which I never like to look or watch the news but felt the need), a surge of energies circulating from my spine throughout my body, tingling, was warm all night until I stared feeling this way then I was cold except my feet were burning hot,  my elbow went numb, and at one point I zoned out and just stared into space (even to where my fiancé asked if I was OK seeing me zone out a little).  And my body was about to react normally from believing what I was told was anxiety from my bipolar. But, I stopped myself, and when I stopped myself I remembered the same feelings coming out of nowhere throughout my life, all the other times I felt like this for no reason and it came to me. This isn't anxiety... This is my mind giving me a lesson that is my powers and I know how to listen to them I've done it many times before throughout my years being alive and so I knew what and how to handle it.  So,  I started breathing and calming my mind and body. And once I calmed myself it let me exhausted even though my body was trying to be alert and on the defense but I didn't allow my body to flip out like normally. Instead, I embraced it and fell asleep and believe it or not I've never got so much rest in a long time.  I remember a few times during my past experiences like this when I didn't know how to handle it all I've cried, prayed, went to the hospital in a panic, cried myself to sleep, prayed that it wasn't the end of my life only to wake up to another day to live.  In the past I thought from what I was told by doctors that I was managing my anxiety from a final release of giving up my defensiveness and just giving in to the fear of my impending doom but in reality it was my body being a outlet with an overload of energies. And like my other past experiences I've lived another day and after my "charging" (best word I can find besides experience)  like in the past I feel normal and calm and not as stressed, enlightened. So, I can safely say I was misinformed as a child that this isn't anxiety.  It's being a Empath.  If I am misled on my experiences please let me know but it feels right when I talk about my "charging" being more connected to being a Empath as opposed to anxiety. And I calmed quicker remembering and it made me relax and release my stress. Feels like normal almost. It's overwhelming feeling until you learn how to handle the feelings and the emotions from being a empath.  I hope it's true I hope I've found the key to unlock the lock between bipolar and Empaths. But,  more importantly I hope I'm not getting anxiety and empaths mixed up and I hope I've found my answer.  I need guidance from people to help me determine my feelings so I know what I can expect and know how  to handle it.  So,  if I'm wrong tell me.  If it's sounding more like anxiety please tell me. Because all I need is validation to know what I need to get a handle on what I go through... Blessed Be and thank you to all responses

Is this a creditable website empath quiz?


Empath

I like to take quizzes online sort of a fun thing for me to do and I wanted to see what a quiz would say about me and being a Empath since I'm trying to see if it's Empathy or Bipolar Disorder which I was diagnose as a preteen. So,  I stumbled on this quiz that actually looked more creditable than most quizzes for fun do.  So,  I took it and it says my abilities are strong and I'm probably more of a Medium. But,  I thought Mediums can see, speak, and actually invite spirits to enter their body type of thing. And I don't think I'm that far into this.... The website was http://www.restoreemotionalbalance.com/empath-test.html . Yes I know I wouldn't base my abilities and life off online quizzes but maybe someone could tell me more about Mediums or if my knowledge is right about Mediums.

Differences between Bipolar Disorder and Being a Empath


Empath

Oh not to mention I don't watch the news no one really does in my household.  I don't get to where I'm crying because of the nothing but bad news and violence.  I don't enjoy watching it nor do I allow my kids to watch it.  I don't think they would find out the real world yet they are still too young to see our world.  I don't ban watching news I just don't like to.

Differences between Bipolar Disorder and Being a Empath


Empath

Yes,  which is abnormal.  Because I find it hard for mostly anything to relax me. And it helps immensely.  I get bored easily.  I have to give my old man credit for dealing with me sometimes with how board I get. Every day I feel like I have slept well for days. I have to prepare myself every day to make it a decent day to avoid stress. Even so it physically for past few days I've been working out my neck because I don't know how all of a sudden my neck muscles have been hurting.  I haven't slept no differently but that could be my own pain hard to tell. But even my fiancé can tell u about my attitude change I can go ping pong sometimes maybe having 4 kids ages 6,5,3,2 at 24 yrs old will contribute there.  There are many factors debatable for bipolar or empathy and I am honestly trying to figure out which.  Without meaning to offend anybody.  I mainly post to figure out about myself more before I give advice.  I've given some advice on here but not much.  I don't feel securely sure enough to be able to give out a lot of info.

Differences between Bipolar Disorder and Being a Empath


Empath

I'm sorry I didn't fully explain... I was as a preteen diagnosed bipolar by a doctor my guardians (my grandparents)  put me through therapy and they put me on Lithium.  I was on lithium and went to a psychologist for a Bipolar Study from 13 until I turned 18. When I got pregnant with my eldest child when I just turned 18 I got off my meds. My Bipolar Study was from age 13-16 I believe I can't remember my ages exactly but I went through a study for a while when I was first diagnosed but the study ended before I turned 18. I haven't had a problem since being off my meds till about 2 yrs ago now when my grandfather that helps raise me passed.  I tried returning to a therapist but I didn't like the medicines since I read up on what I put into my body and such.  So, at this new therapist I saw 3 different people.  1st person was the doctor who prescribed medicines,  2nd person was someone I would talk to and express myself to,  and 3rd person was a nurse who just took my weight,  up,  normal stuff like that.  I would talk to the therapist about having issues with medicines the Dr would prescribe me and not just his medicines it was medicines in general with side effects and such that kind of terrified me and she said that maybe I didn't need medications maybe I just needed to talk. But the Dr was putting me on Klonopin which just made me feel like a zombie but it was a low dose.  I have always to the home remedy approach guess some of it comes from my grandmother but there's a better understanding.  I was diagnosed as a child but come to think of it with the description of bipolar disorder I feel like some examples of bipolar mania or depression isn't quite neither of what I am. I usually never do it have any thoughts of not having a consequence.  I always think before I do I actually analyze most of it before my conclusion.  I was told my mother is diagnosed bipolar and that I get it from her but she she has almost gone to prison for 4 domestic violences.  I've never done anything extreme nor have I stayed in a depressed episode long.  I lift myself out of depression because I've heard of the extremes.  I'm normally a upbeat person with a positive attitude. So,  I considered myself abnormal to the bipolar tendencies

So I'm really struggling...


Empath

OK for starters... I think you need to just come out and tell him that you are emphatic and also in the same sentence tell him how you feel about him but tell him in a way that he will accept it better. Because one you've been hinting it to him isn't the same as actually telling him so his wall may have been helped because he feels you haven't fully been honest with him and him coming from a broken relationship honesty is probably something he's looking for.  You can go about telling him by asking him how he feels about empaths, psychics, etc. And listen to his response.  Then base your response off of his.  But,  ultimately ask yourself this... If you don't tell him or if you tell him and he responds in a negative way how will bring in a relationship with him end well?  You shouldn't have to lie or keep a secret to be with him.  Your not being true to yourself.  When I first told my fiancé I knew there was a good chance he would be open minded about it because he likes "different" opposed to what's considered normal.  He's different himself and that's why I believe we are together and have many differences and adjustments and him and I kind of go hand in hand.  You need to have someone who's like you or at least accepts you and your gift.  Because we are left with the fear of not being accepted in life so you need a support system to help you progress. If he gives off the vibe that he will accept your gift when you tell him go for it but if you get a feeling of uneasiness or he isn't supportive of you then at least for now stay friends if he wants but if you want anything to happen you've gotta tell him because at whether he likes it or not it's a part of you he can support it or be closed minded. But, when in a relationship honesty is the foundation.  I've been with my fiancé for 8 almost 9 yrs. And recently I've told him about me being a empath because I'm new to finding it out myself but I've learned through my relationship if there isn't honesty then how can you say you know someone?  Because overtime secrets unfold and it can change everything. Take this into consideration and Blessed Be

Differences between Bipolar Disorder and Being a Empath


Empath

Hop Daddy:

This is a great post as I believe a lot of people who are empathic can be wrongly diagnosed with a mental illness. In fact, I had that happen to me. I did not know I was an empath and was feeling overwhelmed by the world and was always stressed, anxious, and often depressed. Things came to a head when I was at my lowest point and I finally went to a doctor. I was given anti-depressant medicine that did not make me feel any happier and instead turned me into a numbed up zombie. I quit taking it after a week. At that point, my doctor didn't know what to do to help me. I started doing some reading online trying to see where I matched up with possible mental illnesses and found an empath website. And I recognized who I was, and the rest is history. Understanding that I was an empath helped me understand that I was not ill and helped better identify why I was having waves of emotions (from other people). And now I'm better able to manage the negative symptoms through grounding (no medicine needed).

The tricky thing is that I don't want people who have legitimate mental illness to think they are an empath and go off their meds. Not being a doctor I would guess a lot of people with an anxiety and/or depression disorder could be empaths. But I would think anything more serious like bi-polar, mania, or schizophrenia etc... should carefully adhere to their doctor's advice on how to manage the illness.

Hop Daddy this is pretty close to how I feel on a daily basis unless I do yoga or meditate or ground myself its a terrible feeling always tense,  anxious,  sometimes depressed but I try to shove depression away,  overwhelmed, stressed, and lately I've been doing a lot of crying.  Crying is a little relieving since I feel nobody around me knows what's going on inside me and sometimes I don't even know what's going on inside myself

Differences between Bipolar Disorder and Being a Empath


Empath

Here is a better question... I made a horrible mistake not long ago that altered my life and hurt people I care about and now I'm trying to me it back together.  The thing is when it was unfolding I look back and I didn't recognize myself at all.  People said I was becoming distant and I didn't feel like I was.  I never in my life hurt people on an emotional level like I did when I did.  And when I did it I felt a pain that only happened to me once before and it channeled from me to the other person almost like my heart ripping out of my chest and sending the pain to him hoping for him to come rescue me.  Before this when people said I was being distant I felt like something bad was going to happen.  But,  like my one dream as a preteen I didn't know who it was that was going to go through this or what exactly happened.  My dream was someone was in a car accident.  The next day my mom and I were in a car accident luckily nobody was hurt. Then, fast forward to recently I had a bad feeling something was about to happen then I made my big mistake which in the end hurt me and my loved one and it was a matter of fixing what I did to try to save what I can or losing what matters the most to me forever.  I chose to try to fixing what I did to save what I can.  I don't know if it was a manic episode or the start of a new beginning (I've read when empaths start coming into their new journey they let their past selves die and a new one is born.  I'm having trouble differentiating the two. I've sat back and noticed if I don't listen to my gut feeling bad things happen and I just sat back and let it and boy did it bring different things into perspective and questions to my mind.  But,  one still lingers from my childhood that nags at me... I don't know who I truely am... I can't until I get a DNA test done from like ancestry.com I have a side of my family that is a mystery since my mom was adopted and so anything is possible from my mom's side.  But, my question remains unanswered there... So,  the foreseeable question I'm trying to answer am I bipolar (which my mother is diagnosed bipolar but like I said we just went by what drs said no actual evidence)  or am I a empath?  How did you know for sure that you were a empath?

Lady Bugs sign of God lick?


Empath

For a while now I've been having some rough patches in all aspects of life but I'm steadily making it through... And with the weather changing and insects seeking warmth for the winter I've had a few new house guests... A few moths here and there... But, today when I was just doing my normal day routine a lady bug landed on my arm all of a sudden. I take it outside because even through its cold with only some warmth from the sun it can get food better and survive better outside and follow it's way of life.  So,  I put it on a leaf from the rose bush in front of my house that still has some green leaves. Then I go and switch n fold my laundry and when I was folding I found $11 and this is after I hit my elbow on the dryer and just kind of laughed it off saying, "I thought it was good luck for a lady bug to land on you not hit your elbow luck. " then like I said I found the money which for my family until pay day we are cutting it short and recently our battery had died on our vehicle making my fiance walk to work most of the time. So, hopefully lady luck has staffed to shine with her ray of hope from my friend the lady bug.  I've done the reading supposedly  however many spots are on its back that's how many months of luck three person it lands on will have. Mine had 5 so.... We will see!!!

Differences between Bipolar Disorder and Being a Empath


Empath

So, I know I wonder often how can you tell if your having a Bipolar High or Low moment or if it's being a Empath?  Or is Bipolar Disorder just a medical term doctors use to make money prescribing you medicine and sending you to therapies?  Is it normal for a person to believe it's Bipolar Disorder from what doctors say but it's actually the person is a Empath but doesn't know it? What is the difference between a person with bipolar and a Empath?  Or is there really a difference?  And so,  to help me and other new comers what are some of the better skilled Empaths views on these questions?  Has every Empath been diagnosed with Bipolar or Depression?  I want to get down to the nitty gritty about the differences (if any)  between Bipolar Disorder and Empaths.... Blessed be....

How do you boost self confidence?


Empath

Thank you for your enlightening response. Sorry haven't responded for a while. Busy,  busy,  busy mommy ha ha... But I actually wrote back to her and asked if she was OK with my decision or did she need to talk about it and it turns out to be a misunderstanding.  She was like I felt she would be... She's saying if I feel that passionate about it then do what I think is best and she was accepting of it and everything.... I think that gave my self confidence a slap in the right way ha ha.... That the people I was afraid to tell but wanted to tell was accepting of it 100% . So,  I'm trying to boost my confidence a little more.

How do you boost self confidence?


Empath

Thank you for your response is given me something to think about.  I thought my friend would react more openly because like I said she's had some things in life where I supported her and we still remained friends and I thought she would be OK with it because some of her things that I supported her through has been more of less phases for her and they were in a way life changing and I supported her.  I just wander why she is so hesitant.  She went through a phase believing she was bisexual and I was OK with it.  I just told her that I wasn't that way but I accept her decision for her and that her and I were clear that we were just friends. And she loves things sort of unusual she's open minded about religion and other aspects like witchcraft (she got really into Harry Potter)  so I assumed she would be more open minded about my gift.

How do you boost self confidence?


Empath

Hi I've been taking time to myself to center myself better. But,  I'm still having trouble maintaining my self confidence in my Empathy.  It's taken my whole life to admit things to myself about myself and I'm coming to terms and peace.  I believe that I'm a empathy within my heart but I'm having a hard time believing sometimes.  Recently,  I've lost my necklace when I got so mad I ripped it off my neck and right now I can't get a new chain for it.  My necklace was charged and cleansed so it was kind of important to me during this time of learning to deal with my napkins path.  I don't think I relied on it to always have to be with me (I wore it to sort of remind me that I've found out something new about myself and it reassures me that I have confidence in myself to continue my path to do what I've always done is help people with the help of my gift and knowing that is not necessarily a new found gift it's always been a part of my life but I didn't know about it.)  I've even told my best friend about my gift.  I necessarily don't tell just anyone about my gift only my fiance and now my best friend knows.  I told her in a private message through the internet since she now lives again in her home state which is different from where I live.  I don't know how she has taken me telling her.  I was hoping n thinking that with everything she told me (her life moments, which I accepted)  that she would be OK with me telling her this and she would understand and we've been best friends through thick and thin, living in different states majority of our friendship, for going on 9 years this coming year. But,  she hasn't responded to my message after I told her to tell me how she feels. But,  I think my self confidence is going based off of her feelings.  It think even though she's in another state that I'm feeling that she didn't take it as well as I thought or hoped she would and it's causing my self confidence to fall. I've thought about maybe trying to message her again to get a clearing in this negativity to try to talk her through it but I'm not sure.  Is been a while since I've told her (maybe a week or so)  and we haven't talked since that day and I know she's read it because she checks her account and messages daily normally.  I told her how important to me this was and basically that I was going out of my norm to have the confidence to tell her and she hasn't replied.  Should I talk to her?  Will this help my self confidence to get better once I know that at least I tried?  Im also even telling myself, " you can't be special, " or "it's just you bipolar acting up," or " this is silly to believe in that you have a gift" (I believe others can and do have gifts but I don't think I do sometimes because if I did then I wouldn't self doubt myself)  I feel that if someone has a gift they are certain of themselves more than I am.  But,  other times I'm like hey that relates to me so much or I feel right going through my witchcraft studies (more recently I've found Celtic Witchcraft to be my choice because of my beliefs and my heritage)  and I feel right when im talking with other empaths because I'm learning about something new and exciting and I feel free.  I'm consistently lighting incense because my kids are going through let's just say a nasty phase and it makes my house smell good and warm and inviting during the change of the seasons but it makes me feel warm, calm,  centered, balanced, and just good all over.  I feel that I was almost "knocked off my horse ". And I'm trying to regroup myself. My life overall has been getting better and tolerable no more anxiety attacks so it's a good thing and I've become more talkative towards my husband about his energy when he gets home from work is different and it affects me.  He's a different person there then he is here and it's been afecting everyone and I've been able to communicate that with him without him and I getting into a argument, we've been able to balance more with our talking instead of arguing and he even gave me a night away from the kids last night and do what I want to do last night and it was for the most part fun and enlightening. So,  good and bad emotions have been going around that I've been working with by communication with my fiance so the bad emotions will subside.  I'm also at a cross path that my fiance has been showing signs of empathy also if I'm understanding empathy correctly myself. I don't know whether to tell him this or not.  But he's defiantly showing signs. He's accepting of "anything can happen" is his philosophy on me being a empath.  But,  I know he encountered a spirit as a child but he doesn't like talking about spirits otherwise.  He says if you at like you don't notice them then they won't act up (talking about mostly my ghost shows I like to watch but he thinks are mostly fake)  he believes in spirits though because he told me about when he saw one but anything on tv he gets almost defensive sometimes talking about spirits or encounters with them. Thank you for responses in advance and patience in my lengthy post.  And Blessed Be :)

Negativity issues


Empath

Hope things go better for you and your father. I'm sorry to hear this but try to use your known information now to help yourself and your father. Put his energy before any others and try to channel your good energy to him and see if it helps.  Anything is possible and good energies is nothing more than what he wants for you and in turn it may help him fight. I truly hope the best for you and your father and I just want to reassure you that you can do this it is in you and I hope nothing but good towards anybody in need of help and assistance.  Blessed Be :)

Finding out You are an Empath.


Empath

Wow I'm finding myself giving this advice a lot lately today just in the past few posts... I related to you to the "T". What's helped me will help wonders I feel to everyone I've told.  I don't consider myself trained fully so I'm going on what I feel will help. If so great if not I'm sorry and if you wanna try something else I won't be affected because each is their own.  So here it goes... I first got all my energies relaxed by relaxing myself which is hard to do trust me. Calgon take me away lavender scented with honey is the new scent the original scent was lavender doesn't matter which one,  take a bath in it it's bath salts found at Walmart for $3. Next,  I stumbled on this one by accident but it helped... I bought a new body wash which turned out to have scrubbing salts in it and you feel like I've scrubbed away everything bad the soap is called Caress Tahitian Renewal. Then to get rid of negative energies and protect you from them find a necklace or something you can wear all the time "a pendent " cleanse it with a cleansing spell I like the one using the 4 elements.  Hold it over a candle flame,  hold it under running water (yes sink faucets are OK and convenient) wipe it with a clean towel or paper towel (they told me paper towel but having 4 toddlers 1 in school I didn't have any on hand so I used a clean towel),  sprinkle with salt (table salt is fine and handy also),  and run it through the smoke from a incense.  This made me feel much better.  Or u can cleanse by leaving the object in the moonlight all night and sunlight all day.  But,  after both of these spells which ever you choose you have to wear the object for 7-9 days to absorb your energy which was scrubbed good from your bath but it's important that nobody touches the object for 7-9 days but you so it doesn't absorb someone else's energy. And to continue the good energies pertain in mediation/ grounding and I've also thrown in yoga.  This is all done at comforts of home since I'm a stay at home mommy of 4. But,  most importantly empaths help others it's in our nature but who helps us?  Nobody else can feel what you feel unless they are a empathy also.  We know our needs but get lost in everyone else's.  You need to have time for yourself to unwind,  recharge,  and to just feel good about yourself.  Because how can you help someone through the fog if your affected by your own fog?  Hope this helps you.  Blessed Be :)

Try taking a salt bath to relieve yourself and pamper yourself and perform a cleansing spell find a object you can wear consistently and there are a few ways to cleanse the object such as a necklace one I particularly like is cleansing with the four elements of earth.  Hold the object in a flame of a candle (sun),  sprinkle salt on it(regular salt is fine)  (earth),  run the object through running water from your faucet (water), and through the smoke of a incense (wind)  and wear the item for 7 to 9 days without anybody touching it but you.  It gathered your energy and protects you from negative energy.  Or you can leave the object in the moonlight all night and sunlight all day and wear it for 7 to 9 days without anybody touching it.  I also have a body wash that has scrubbing beads in it (didn't realize it had the scrubbing beads till I bought it and used it)  but it made my salt bath with calgon take me away lavender and honey scented bath salt so much more enlightening for me and try some yoga and meditation/ grounding.  It takes all the negative and draining energy feelings away.  Scrub them away and have a way to vent. Because us as empaths gather a lot of energies good and bad you need a outlet to pamper yourself for all the hard work your body goes through to make others feel better.  Because if your energies are all mixed up how can we continue helping people if we don't help ourselves.  Its a very hard predicament but we must not loose sight of what we want to do is help people and sometimes to help others is to help yourself first...  Blessed be :)

Do you give advice?


Empath

I find that mostly the people who want help will tell you without even knowing it and it make the conversation flow better.  They can come to you about anything any problem they are facing just come to you as a person to person not person to empathy.  If that makes sense and I find that after I talked with them they return in the future telling what happened and how much my advice helped them. Like,  someone said in previous  comments my fiancé is the only one who knows I'm a empathy.  I'm trying to tell my lifelong friend but haven't found a way that I myself and her to discuss it.  But it will come in time if I feel she should know. So,  take it slow because most of empaths just want to help people and maybe they aren't ready to accept our ways of life and they may reflect negatively if you try to shove it on them. Patience is a virtue.  Blessed be :)

Who is Danielle Egnew? I'm sorry I don't watch too much news I don't want my kids knowing of the troubles of the world just yet they are too young but I do watch TV. Mostly cartoons though ha ha and sometimes I watch my recordings but anything I want to watch I've gotta record to be able to watch it when kids go to bed.

Help finding my path


Empath

Thank you lotusfly you have encouraged me a little bit but I'm stuck also on pursuing my beliefs as a self healer such as more meditation and more yoga not to mention the time to do it more than I already do to reduce my bipolar or do I take a slightly quicker approach and get back on medicines for a little bit. I use to take medicine but then I started putting 2 and 2 together and I didn't like most results when going back on medication. It's all so stressful and confusing. Got a lot to think about

I won't deny the elections post either. I don't particularly like the feelings of either Trump or Hilary. Trump I feel is a dictator I don't like his aura at all it almost makes me sick. Hilary is slightly better but not much because her wanting to take firearms away will cause a war within the U.S. But I think she's more negotiable than Trump. I don't read too much up on politics because it's just they all promise something but succeed nothing. Trump I just don't like his vibes he seems like a modern day Hitler in a way to me. Hilary seems like she just wants to make a name for herself. Her husband was a president and she wants a Clinton to be in control again but this time it's a woman so she wants to be the 1st woman president. Neither one I feel is in it for the good of the United States. For them its about power, money, and, a name. In my opinion

Increased Emphatic Sensitivities


Empath

When I called upon my Spirit Guides I got the names of four people, their age range, and I felt which one helps me through each side of me. First one he was caring, nice, warmness poured from every thing about him his smile, his eyes, everything was real pleasant about him, the next one was a woman with more physical features that were similar to mine but she has the same personality i just don't know how she came to be my guide I don't think she's related to me but she has similar features about her personality like the guy I just described but she seemed more of a teacher type so maybe she is more about my thoughts instead of my personality but she's still nice to be around, friendly, and welcoming like I am the first guy was a little hesitant to come forward i had to really talk to him and earn his trust. The third person whoo he was sort of like my grandpa that recently passed away but his name was different he was more serious, very stubborn about not really wanting to share information about himself to me but I got some information out of him and the last guy he was sort of the wild type, bad boy, risk taking type of guy. Now I tried to see them and ask them to trust me and such but I'm just beginning this so I got some images of their face and names and their clothes but I can't quite say that I can see them spot on and know for sure but my point of all this is my Spirit Guides seemed like they were pieces of myself which I saw in them. I could've offhandedly assumed my 4th guide as evil but when I got to thinking about what they told me and with the slight fogginess of what I saw about them i realized they maybe my Spirit Guided that lived their lives as they were to me and they here to guide me on the bits of personalities that I have within myself. I know I'm not evil but I'm not perfect either I've made mistakes and they made the same or similar mistakes in their lifetime so they guide me by them learning from their personalities they had in their lives. Take the last guide for example... He was daring (I'm not too daring), adventurous, wild, and not too bad looking but he looked the bad boy part. I haven't unleashed that side of me for a while. But he guides me when I want to to guide me to benefit from it and try to prevent me from going too far within my limits. He's probably not too happy with me recently but I'm working on finding my balance. Now, the only girl I saw reminded so much of myself from what I got almost physically too she's caring, nurturing, loving of all things (plants, people, and, animals), I feel she guides me in the natural way I do things with home remedies instead of pharmaceutical medicines, she guides me with my passion for gardening and love of the season fall, she feels like she wants nothing but good things and helps anyone, and my writing of poetry and drawing, she guides me best by the way we see good in everyone. The first guy helps me with my gentle side my guidance in health I think, my quiet side, my passionate side. And the older guide (one who resembles my grandfather more) he's my guide in wisdom (which I've always said, "I know too much for my own good" ) and people always tell me I know more wisdom than they expect from someone of my age (let's think about this a normal 24 year old woman talking to you guys who have started empathy at a later age and have been doing it longer than I have and I'm talking to you guys with ease because i consider what I've read and studied about recently maybe within the last week and have experienced and I see what all of you are saying) (in my mind anything can be possible) and I do overthink a lot and I sure as heck see my stubbornness in him haha, and I think why I had to really make him trust me is because the same way it's hard for me to trust I see good in people yes but to actually trust someone it's hard because there is always good in people but that person decides to let the good show or the bad. Guides are meant to guide you from their mistakes they made in their life. So whether or not guides are being replaced by negative energies from the noises people have heard or the war that's going on between the spirit realms or world's my question is what does it matter to us? We can't help them we are not capable of that yet (yes I feel the need to help but if all we can do is pass judgement on things that we don't have rights to pass any judgement on why are you trying to make this matter fall into your hands when we can't stop it it's not in our power yet.) Why do you concern yourselves really? I don't feel anything negative about my guides because they are pieces of yourself guiding you from within (that's the only way they can is through us, our minds, our hearts, and our beliefs) and you would know if something's different in your guide once the negative energy takes your guide over because who knows you better than you? So, instead of judging other people's beliefs or worrying about a war between the world's find yourself within all this and get to know yourself  and your guides and you will be able to tell if something is wrong with your guide because they will tell you things that you would never do or say and that will be your clue. And maybe that is our way of helping our guides is by learning what's right and what's not and maybe if empathy is a way of "witchcraft" and in witchcraft you can protect yourselves from negative energies you can also protect them and make your guides surrounded stronger. I've studied some about witchcraft before I found out about empathy but it's connected whether you think so or not so I've cleansed my necklace that I wear always around my neck and maybe that's why I don't sense anything negative about my guides. Just give what I said some thought if you automatically think I'm too young or to new at this. That's all I ask...I asked to be heard because I like to help people and I can figure out a lot of ways to help if people believe in what I say despite my age or length of having my gift. And for the people concerned with the war my conclusion to protect yourselves and it may protect your guides also maybe our chance to help our guides fight off the negative energies and make things right again. Anything is possible. Blessed be

Increased Emphatic Sensitivities


Empath

Is this war maybe a reason why I've found my powers?  Or maybe why I've found mine so quickly?  I've found a path as a Empath and it kept nagging at me like I can just pick it up like I've done it before. But,  it honestly was a little too much to handle so I told my Spirit guides to tune my abilities down a little and eventually today I asked that they return them only in belong spirits give positive and good things to communicate with me and I will communicate it to the person. I've asked for my Spirit Guides to protect me. And they've done what I've asked.  When I asked to tune it down they did and I took a salt bath last night and all my anxiety and negative feelings stopped instantly.  I've not heard this noise in the U.S. I'm not saying it didn't happen but I haven't heard it.  I'm new at this but how can you tell your actual spirit guides from the one's your talking about?  Again not meaning any negativity or anything but how am I going to find out anything without asking people who have done this for longer?

Thank you for your response. But last night I had something happen to me that could've only got its power from the full moon.  I had made contact with my Spirit guides and my recently deceased grandfather.  He told me that he gave me my dream the night before with the horses and that he's pretty sure I get my gift from my mothers side but with my dads side having strong determination and all being Irish and German it's overpowering to me.  After making contact I was so lightheaded, dizzy, went into like staring into space, started sneezing quite a bit and so I was almost freaking out.  I had my fiancé assist me to the bath tub to soak in a salt bath with honey and lavender scented bath salts (thank goodness for Calgon take me away)  and I had to ask my higher powers to tune my powers down and it all seemed to melt away.  So, in the end of last night our only night with a full moon I got my answer. I've just got to choose if I want to use it or not. Last night was a good yet nerve wracking experience. I got my answer but it's a lot to take in.  I felt so relieved since I had the unnerving feelings since my grandfather died and over that year or so I wasn't listening and bad luck followed me around in a way (no more people died but it was a lot of negative energies)  and my grandpa had been wanting to talk to me.

Help finding my path


Empath

It all started as a child I have a love for nature and it's healings,  animals (I've always had more than one animal ranging from cats (I always have had at least 2 cats),  dogs,  Guinea pigs,  and fish ( I currently have 2 cats,  1 dog,  2 fish tanks full of about 8-10 fish that are actually my mother in laws but in my household,  and 2 Guinea pigs). I'm a warm person loving and motherly.  I have 4 children at the age I am now which is 24 years old with my kids dad same father but him and I have hit some troubles and are working on our relationship.  But anyways as a kid I was always the outcast fro my naturally auburn hair and I was a chubby kid. I've been trying to find my path because my mother was adopted and Ive never know that sid of my family. As a kid I had a dream that came true the next day.  My dream was someone got into a car crash... That's it didn't know where or who or if anyone was hurt.  The next day my mother and I got into a car crash luckily no one got hurt in our car or the other car. And normally I don't ever  remember any dreams except maybe 3 in my whole life.  I had a dream last night about a Egyptian man on a small white horse and I rode a full grown white horse.  In the end I helped him find a big white horse like mine. So,  I've thought of maybe I can have glimpses into the future or something.  But then I took notice that my emotions base off of others. I can tell when I'm being lied to. My kids father has always told me he can see stars in my eyes and that I have a unbreakable bond that keeps people interested in me. Everyone wants to talk to me,  ask my opinions,  and his draw to me is so strong that even when I've done some horrible things (without meaning to in a way I didn't listen to my gut instinct which results in bad energy for me)  he cannot leave or feels that I need his help and only his I will possibly listen to more than I would anyone else's. I've been in a spiral of bad energy and I'm trying to fix it.  I think I'm really confused and don't know which power I have.  My belief in my empathy power is also confusing because of my bipolar.  I don't know if I do have a power or which one it is because of my mixed emotions and thoughts.  I don't know if I'm just being silly in thinking that I can help people like the Charmed Ones or if I'm just a normal person thinking that I maybe powerful because of my roller coaster of emotions from my bipolar. I'm just ultimately trying to find my path.  I enjoy witchcraft,  I try,  I study,  not sure if my spells have worked.  Some there is a possibility that they have but I know it takes practice and patience. I'm not here to offend anybody.  I'm just trying to find my path and I have a almost natural draw to different people and studies etc.  My kids father even asked me when I was sort of doubting myself in my head and thoughts so I stopped practicing and studying and everything without telling him.  He comes home from work one night and out of nowhere asks me,  "why did I quit my studying a of witchcraft and stuff? " I responded,  "you noticed that I stopped? " he said,  "yes that's why I'm asking you why have you stopped? " I said,  " do you think I should continue that it's possible that I'm onto something that I actually have a gift? " he said,  "well I told you in the beginning that if you like it I will support you and anything is possible is the way I see it. " so he noticed even when I was doubting myself and rethinking and he has always been supportive but this time I think he knows or thinks something about me that I cant always see in myself and that's why he's encouraged me to keep doing what I seemed to love but I'm stuck. I don't know which or if I have any power that maybe Ive not used enough or I've somehow blocked out of my mind and I'm at a halt.  I need some guidance and help to find my path and I hope by joining this community someone can help me because in my overly stressed mind and body I have some fight but I need to know how to approach my new path and I want to help people and myself.  Witchcraft and finding my power is something I enjoy and it actually makes a lot of sense.  So thank you for accepting me and reading my story and if you can help and choose to help thank you  for all the help.  Blessed Be
