Long post... But does anyone Relate?
Hi, I too am just starting on the journey and finding things out about myself, but have also found no one to talk to who knows the answers. I have just taken a level 1 Reiki course and it has opened my eyes to things that are around us that very few people know are happening. I have told my family about it but they too are sceptical and my son just laughs. I was away on holiday the last few weeks and had a couple of medical issues with two members of the family and I placed my hands on them for a few minutes and the pain and the issue went away, so now they have proof its gone a bit quiet!
I have always known I could heal but only my partners have known about it. I have also only just realise in the past year or so what an Empath is and that I am one. The journey you are going on will primarily be a solo one unless you can find a kindred spirit to bounce off and help you. I am totally non religeous and very scientific so I need evedence. I went into the Reiki with an open heart and mind and it has changed my life.
When I held a girls head I felt like I had her soul in the palm of my hands. I told my tutor before she woke up ( es thats another strange gift I can hold someones hand and send them to sleep in a few minutes. Why is this and what can I use it for- non anaesthetic operations?) she said to the tutor she felt like she was out of her body when I held her crown.
I dont think "Normal" society is ready to accept this yet and you will always get the kind of reaction you get unless you confide in a loved one who is willing to take you as you are. My partner of 5 years takes me as I am I am blessed with her. She has seen what I can do and trusts me 100% with it, but still she doesn't understand what is happenning inside my head.
As a guide you should do the exercises on Elises page to block stuff out, read up on stuff for your journey and talk to whoever you can find who will listen. You will be able to spot the narcissists or vampire drains easily who are just there to leach you and you must practice trusting your instincts. If you think somthing is wrong then it is, fact. The sooner you start doing this the stronger you will become and the smoother your journey.
By the way I am a 58 year old man with 7 children, who has been a roofer for 21 years until retraining as a Maths, English and Motor Vehicle lecturer at 52. I wonder sometimes why I have found all this out about myself so late in life. I am sure my daughter is the same as me. If you are still reading thanks for listening and hope it helps.
