Anyone else really sick with multiple sicknesses??? Unusually sick???


Empath

@4peace I too am dealing with a lot of random issues - asthma, first ear infection since I was a kid, extreme tiredness, lack of energy, I am itchy and restless, sleep issues, easily weepy, muscle pains..the whole nine yards; just generally feeling drained and "off". As soon as I feel like I start to kick one thing, something else crops up. This happens to me when there is a seasonal change sometimes, when there is either a major energy shift or I am just emotionally overwhelmed; too much at once. So, I am taking some self care time, paying attention to what my body is saying and trying to get things back in alignment. good thoughts your way for feeling better!

Visions


Dreams

I can't offer much help, but will give what I can. Often animal spirit guides resonate with us on an energetic level; there are similarities in our energies. Here is the little information that I have:

Red Fox - his wisdom includes shapeshifting, cleverness, observational skills, cunning, stealth,camouflage, feminine courage, invisibility, ability to observe unseen,persistence, gentleness, swiftness

Mustang Horse - power, stamina, faithfulness, endurance, freedom, control of the environment, cooperation, expanding one's own potential, friendship, travel, astral travel,warns of possible danger, guide to overcoming obstacles

Snow Leopard - understanding one's shadow side, trusting one's inner self,agility, strength,ability to stalk, understanding the power of silence

Snow Owl - stealth, secrecy, silent movement, seeing behind masks, keen sight,messenger of secrets and omens, shape-shifting, link between the worlds of dark and light,comfort with shadow self, moon magic, freedom.

Hope that is at least slightly helpful in some way.

Dealing with liars


Empath

As some others have said, my BS radar is one of my strongest skills and I have really strong aversion to liars; it is my biggest pet peeve I think. I have no problem calling out family or close friends and play it situation by situation with other people.

In terms of what to do when you live with a liar, it depends on what you want, what is important. If you want to keep things real and honest, and you are sure they are lying (it goes oh so badly to accuse someone if they are not), then you could say something. Even if they will just continue to adamantly deny it, they will at least know that you are not willing to play that game.

For me, respect plays a big part in it, especially with family and close friends. It is not okay to have so little respect for me that you are fine lying to my face, and for me, nothing causes a rift in a relationship that is almost impossible to fix, then lying. So, I tend to say something, regardless of what the other person's response or reaction is, simply because I feel like it is important for me to and something I need to do for my own self-respect.

Yes, liars typically continue to lie when they meet no resistance or challenge, so it is fair to think that the person will just continue. Another thing I will mention is possibly consider why you would be hesitant to say anything. If they are lying, and you know they are lying, but you are pretending that you don't think they are, what is being accomplished? What are you getting out of it? Is it just easier? Are you not sure? Does it not matter enough to address it? Those are things to think about when considering whether to say anything or not. Just some suggestions. I completely understand your frustration. Liars are the bane of my existence.

Projecting Emotions


Empath

I am going to jump on the train here and offer my own opinion, and it is just that, an opinion to be taken or left. I think that we as empaths do have an ethical responsibility as to how we use the gift, and I think that means being mindful of intention when we engage in any behavior. If the intent is questionable, if there is a possibility that "innocent" (unaware/non-consenting) individuals could be negatively affected, especially if it is a person or people who have not approached us for "help". So, I personally, would be really wary of honing the skill of projecting emotion unless you are absolutely clear on what your genuine intent is, and even then, not knowing what the consequences could be for other people, if it is something that you are just set on working on, I would ask family members or friends to be the guinea pigs, with full disclosure that you are not sure of the potential outcome. That is just my opinion.

Feeling Lost


Empath

Sending lots of good thoughts and prayers your way. What @bing said is exactly true...the Dark Night of the Soul. I have been through several myself and it is hard and exhausting. As a psychology grad student I will also agree with what @janett-niemi said about stressors. They are ranked and you have at least three at are at the top of the chart. Be gentle with yourself. Breathe. You will make it through it and there could be something better waiting on the other side of it. Hang in there.
