Mind ripples


Empath

Hi Ladies, it's nice to know I'm not alone. I would so rather have your colorful ripples Mikayla! The best way to describe mine would be like the negatives to a roll of film. And Jen, you aren't the first person to mention something about my third eye. Looks like I may have to turn some of my attention in that direction. Thank you

Spirit guides


Empath

Ahhhh Bless you all for sharing your stories and wisdom :-) I'm in the same boat with Jennifer down there (or up there depending where this mssg lands). I think I'm guilt of "forcing" things instead of letting them come to me. I'm close to something and just the distraction of my eyelids tighening kills it for me. On the upside, that "chatter" is slowly subsiding! But hey, if anyone out there know's of a better method of "hushing" those extra voices, all suggestions are welcome ;-)

Spirit guides


Empath

Are spirit guides either male OR female or can they be both? I know that sounds naieve (sp)but the reason I ask is that I've "seen" my animal spirit guide but I can't seem to "see" my Spirit Guide(s) I feel them but can't see them. Ugh frustrating! The first time I tried to connect I felt a male figure, the following time it was female. Next couple times, male... Can anyone pllllllllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeease explain.. Thank ya ;-)

Mind ripples


Empath

G'morning ya'll (or good afternoon if you're further east) ;-)

Lately (week or so) whenI close my eyes to meditate I see what I call "ripples". The best way to describe them is imagine a calm/still body of large water (ie a pond). If you throw a small rock it creates a ripple afffect right? That's what I see when I first close my eyes. Another unusual thing is is if I change the position of my hands, the shape changes. Still ripples but different shape. 99.9% of the time it's a circle n ripples outward. The only other shape I see (when I change position of my hands)is a diamond. I'm hoping somone can explain this or share some insight. Thanks in advance ;-)

Pressure in/on the bridge of my nose..


Empath

Hi Janet,This is all relatively new to me. Ony been a memeber for a couple weeks. So I'm hoping you can tell me 1)Is an "open" chakra a good thing or bad thing AND 2) Does it stay open or is there some way too close it... I'm looking at it as a "never leave doors open, the flies come in" kinda mentality. Learning about chakras was next on my list of "what significance does this play in my journey"

I first wanna wish all my Empath Brother's n Sisters a Happy July 4th. Hope ya'll are with loved one's and having a blast (safely, of course). And of course Happy 12th Birthday to my lil girl! Daddy loves you!

Now for the reason I'm here. So I'm meditating this morning. At some point, I feel this, I wanna say pressure on the bridge of my nose. Like someone were pushing on it. Does this mean anything other then the obvious or is it just pressure. Keep in mind this is the first time I've felt something this noticeable in that area. Spooked me out of meditation :-/n here i am. Can someone explain, puhhhhhhhhhhhhlease :-D Thank you in advance

That makes perfect sense ;-) Any advice (other than meditation) to tap into those feelings so it doesn't "just" happen. For example the peace I feel from a gust of wind. I wanna always feel that peace not just then. You always seem to have good feedback Mikayla ;-) Thank you

So you have "Lt Dan Syndrome" too :-D I make my living as a carpenter and the harder it rains the more I wanna stay out there. When the breakers jump is when I stop -shrugs-. I can relate to how you feel about deserts. I just figured I was tainted cause of my drive threw Death Valley in a UHAUL w a broken AC. The meaning of your name struck a chord w/me. I'm reminded of a story my family used to tell me. I was an infant and someone was watching a show on dolphins. Keep in mind they say I was sound asleep but when the dolphins would start to make their noises I would start bawling. It would stop, so would I.. I'm sure it was some meaning.

It's not too often I get all gloomed out during the rain. Hey so are you gonna ever tell me why you thought we were "identical"? I think you just took my fav weather girls spot. Congrats -l-

Oooooooo I LOVE the ocean. The beach at night is one of my fav past times! Ya know come to think of it, when there's a full moon out and I'm at the beach them hormones get to kicking -lol- or it could just be the sap in me -lmao-. I enjoy a nice bath too. Yeah fellas I said it :-P So while you're seeking shelter from the storm guess where I'll be? Yup! Out in the open, looking up, standing there (possibly dancing), taking it all in! Glad ya get me because I've heard more of the opposite over the years. "Ugh, I just don't get you." -lo-

Empath

Can anyone explain what, if any, isan Empathsconnection to the elements. I mean I get that everything is somehow intertwined. What I don't get is why they envoke emotion n me. For example, the clouds before the storm make me a lil sad. Now I'm almost certain that doesn't mean their "energy" is sad, right? Whereas a slight drizzle - a moderate rain make me smile. Especially when I stand in the rain n let it hit me in the face. But then it's more of an "energizing/alive" feeling. Thunderstorms.. "empowering". Imagine Lt. Dan in Forrest Gump when he was in the crows nest when that storm hit.. That would be me!Wind - a soft breeze is soothing (even in the dead of winter my car window's down) the stronger it get's the stronger I feel, physically.

Fire - A camp fire is relaxing.. A large bonfire draws curiousity.. "moth to a flame" I guess.. I expect tohave some sense of fear but fire doesn't scare me. As a matter of fact, it seems to have the opposite affect. Comforting. Earth... landscapes (all sorts) make me feel "grounded". The way most people feel their parents and family to be their "foundation". Is how I feel w/landscapes. Mostly trees n grass.

Water... I get the strongest feeling from water.. Not just water though, flowing water. Rain, lakes, beaches. Even the shower (water faucets and toilets have a different affect -lol-. I know, weird!). HELP... Thank you in advance. Ya'll are awesome ;-)

The Empath Community is my home...


Empath

I'm nervous -l-. I feel like I'm about to address the President.. -deep breath- (ok here we go).I was going to send you a "thank you" mssg but this felt like a better place. Ok so this is what I want to say. I'll have been a member one whole week tomorrow :-). I saved the "Welcome to Empath Community" confirmation email because the second I read the "instructions" on the main page I knew.... I just KNEW I was in the right place. I had stumbled upon "other sites" and had come across some "ok" info. But after leaving those sites I felt like I was in one of those cartoons where you're at the fork in the road and there's fingers pointing in every possible direction (as I write this I'm struck by a strong Deja Vu moment. One of those "Ahhhh this is what I was doing in that dream" moments). Then as I read on, I got more n more of a "motherly" love feeling which validated my already made up mind. I'm 35 n spent most of my growing up, knowing that something was different about me. From the dreams, to feelings both ne.g n pos. But growing up in a catholic home, to mention something would've landed me with Dr's n I knew it wasn't anything like that. Fast foward to today and I'm prefectly fine with when n how my journey brought me here. If it happened any sooner I don't know that I'd be able to fully appreciate what a gift you, this site and most of it's memebers are. So from the bottom of my heart know that I SO appreciate your dedication to this site and what it offers all of us. Thank you...... Oh yeah one more thing, I PROMISE not to poop where I eat (I SO hope you've heard that saying or I'm gonna look so dumb -lol)

I'm such a DORK! I get all giddy when just one person can relate to or knows exactly how I feel let alone more than one -lol-. So what do you tell yourself about the street lights? I think that's SO funny you mentioning the phone thing. I can't tell who's about to call but I have reached for my phone seconds before a call/txt comes threw. My friends get a kick out of it. My family looks at it more along the lines of "too rehearsed" Like a way out.. The wierd thing about that is I love being with them. I'm a HUGE family guy. It happens more with people I have a strong connection with (family.. close friends). It happens a lot with my daughter. Or she'll tell me, "I was just about to call/txt you". Crowded places don't bother me as much as they used to. Wait I take that back! Bars n clubs/lounges do. Sad thing is I LOVE both (I'm gathering you do too -lol-). I usually have to have a drink or two to relax before I go to either. It seems the more I learn about and understand being an Empath, the less I fear. Noisy places don't bother me. High pitch sounds do though. Hope you don't mind me "picking your brain"... How long have you been a member of the Community? How long have you known you were an Empath? An when you mention "opening up" is that in general?? about your gift?? sharing your experinces (I wasn't sure)...????? I just recently signed up and have learned TONS! So many explanations for things I just chalked up to coincidence.. I came here looking for answers and not only did I get that, I've met some amazing people in the process and possibly will form some special bonds.... What about you, looking for anything in particular? BTW.... what's your name? I'd feel silly calling ya "white wave" ;-)

White Wave,Oh cool, something similar happens to me w/that radio. I'll have the radio on, and I'll either start to sing or whistle something n within a few songs they'll play it. Coincidence? Maybe. But the more I read here the more I realize their are too many people that share the same coincedence. I mentioned earlier to Nicole wither I'm crazy or I'm surrounded by people that are my kinda crazy -lol-. The street light thing used to happen to me more when I was younger (I'm 35 now). It still does but nowhere near as much. Again one of those things I just chalked up to a short circuit in the light... Yup, every single on of them. What a dork I know! I wish I could tell you more 'bout that food thing but that would be like the blind leading the blind. This is all so very new to me. All I can tell you 'bout that is that I have a hard time even hearing bout food in the AM. I've heard mention of others having that AM problem though

Hi Allison,I read something in your reply that I HAD to comment on. Actually a couple things. You call it your "good head", I say "everything's hitting" (construction lingo for "perfect!"). Best way I can sum it up is one of those NO red lights, no traffic, no negativity kinda days. What's wierd is I've had people do that to me. Just stop. I have one particualr friend that I refer to A LOT on here. She's the one I've been so open with. Being an empath and some of the conincidence's I WAS curious about. She kinda validates those things that I was feeling "nutty" about. One of those things being people and how they stop.. Just stop! Be it walking, in mid drink, playing sports etc. My fav is when people are in mid conversation and just pause. There is no hiding that one -lol-. And then the look on their face like they KNOW they just got read and they try to get continue the flow of a broken conversation. Remembering where ya left off in the conversation before their pause gives me just enough time to get that read. Or when I have my sunglasses on, it's as though they're looking in, threw, or for my eyes. I absolutely LOVE the beach so of course that caught my attention. And none of this is one of those "I'm hot and look at all the attention I get". Me n that type don't get a long to well. You wouldn't happen to like people watching do ya?

Sarisha~Having strangers come up to me and pour their hearts out is kind of an on going joke amongst my close friends. It seems to bother them more then it does me. I actually enjoy most of the stories! I think I can even count on one hand the amount of times I regreted listening. I can completely relate to being relaxed. With me, it's almost like I have to spend a lil extra effort evaluating everyone else's mood, spending time getting them to that "let's be social" moment and THEN I get to figure out how I feel. I'm hoping I can figure out a way to reverse that. Or is that gonna be one of those "it comes with the territroy" sort of deals? In any case, I think I'm totally ok with that cause I'm learning there's much more to this then having to "just deal with it". I really appreciate the time ya gave. Thank you :-)

Nicole A~Sooooooooo I'm not an ego maniac -lol-. I'm starting to breathe a sigh of relief the more I read. Either I'm not crazy OR I'm surrounded by people with the same kinda "crazy" -shrugs-! Who cares, I'm with My People :-D So when you make mention of vibrations, I think of what I call "vibes". Could that be the same thing (please bare with me... I'm -cough cough- "new")? For example, I'm walking in a mall (lots of people right). Then all of a sudden I'll pass someone and I'll get that "they need my attention for some reason" feeling. Now when it comes to males it instantly comes off as a "vibe" (tha's the only way I can desribe it). Females, it's "chemistry". Now, do you think they're the same thing and is that what you mean by vibration. I have a tendancy of paying more attention to the "vibes" coming off others then what I'm emitting. Is that normal? Although it seems I can project my emotions onto others.. Not like super heavy but enough to affect their current mood... Ok I could go on for days but I won't do that to ya.... yet -lol- Wait one more thought.. Kinda rereading things and thought, if 2 or more people get together w whose "vibrations" are spiking, what would that be like? Feel like? Ok, Now I'm gone... few more replys to go :-)

Hello Cristine,As I mentioned above (to Mikayla) I'm so grateful that ya'll took the time to share you're opinions, insight, knowledge, etc. This is still fairly new to me and as I'm sure you know, accepting your gift can be a bit overwhelming (well it has been for me... in a good way). For me it's been a lifelong journey realizing what my gift was. But it's like once I did the resources just kinda faded. "Ok so I'm an Empath. Now what?" I can't get over how positive and supportive everyone is! With that said, when I said "coming out crowded" or people showing up I mean 5 - 10 people and it's never anyhting like a movie theater or large restaraunt. Happens more at the hole in the wall places. Bars, restaraunts, video stores, etc. But that would be cool to have the Pied Piper affect. Wait, I take that back! Isn't that basically paparazzi (WHOA way off topic -lol-) I'm not a big fisherman so I haven't seen these charts you mentioned but I may have to take a peek at a few.

So it does happen!!! Some of these new experiences envolve swallowing your ego which is hard for most males to do. I used to always chalk it up to coincedence until I got brave n mentioned it to a friend of mine. When she started noticing it was a small validation. But validation none the less. Always felt different n alone. Lots of questions and NO answers. That has all recently changed and this new journey..... has been..... for lasck of a better word, "remarkable". I can't wait to learn more. Thank you taking the time to respond

So I'm failry new to the Community. Since I've been a member, SOME of those nagging "seemingly insignificant" questions I've had have been answered, be it by forum or member(s). From Deja Vu to insomnia issues. Even learned that I'm not the only one who get's somewhat unsettled at the thought of food first thing in the AM. So I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed going into public places (ie resturaunt, library etc) that are totally empty and within 15-20 mins that completely changes.I pointed it out to the only friend aware of me being an Empath and she get's such a kick out of it.. Only topic I hadn't seen in blogs or forums. Is it one of those qualities we have or am I reading WAY too much into things??????
