Famous Empaths


Empath

@hop-daddy- Same thing happened with Curt Kobain. In his suicide note he mentioned empathy. The most telling thing he said in that letter was that he wished people would just like the music and not worship him. Fame can destroy an empath.  Chester could easily have been easily been dealing with the same thing. General overload with no escape from it. 

Jimmy is way to comfortable in front of an audience to be an empath. He feeds on the attention. Not a bad thing, it's just not an empathic trait.

Sensing Feelings/Thoughts when in the water


Empath

Before we moved to Austin, my wife and I would take the drive just to go to Barton Springs pool. Its a natural spring fed pool, so the water is always cool and feels really good. Best part was no chlorine. When we finally did move here, five years ago, we took a day and went for a dip. I had been there many times, but this time I had a very different experience. As soon as I got in the water I had to get out. The feeling I had was panic. It was like I was going to die if I didn't get out right then. When we got home I looked up information on when the last person had died there. Turns out a young man had died in June of that year '13. This had happened about a month before. It took a year for me to want to go back. When I did, it didn't feel the same. That energy had dissipated, but I still didn't like it. My wife swims there on a regular basis. I don't anymore. Instead, I built a pool in my backyard.

Questions on being Psychic...


Psychic and Paranormal

@eri-ameonna- If it makes you feel better, I get lost in the city all the time. I rely on GPS. It has something to do with all the other people around me. Some how they affect my sense of direction. I have to focus even if I've been there a hundred times before. My wife is a control freak that is constantly driving from the passenger seat. I'll miss turns and forget where I'm going with her in the car. I find it much easier just to take separate cars. In the woods I've never had that problem. 

The term psychic has earned some bad conentations. Most people don't like the word anymore. I would never claim to be psychic. What I don't get is why so many would rather just be mundane, and not want to believe in something extra ordinary.

Is Anyone else the Emotional Scapegoat?


Empath

Yes, when my wife is frustrated she takes it out on me. Other people have done the same so many times it has become routine. Many will question my motives because it makes no sense to them, and look at me with distrust and contempt. They project on to me the crap they do. They like to blame us and others for their emotional duress. Some people never grow up.

Justice and mercy


Empath

For the last 8 months I've been trying to help a young man come to terms with what he did. Every Friday I drove for an hour to take a killer out for breakfast. We would talk about the things going on in our lives, family and friends, and the many things we had in common. The idea was to befriend him and help him through this process of remorse. I failed.

Two years ago a man named John drank five beers and three shots of whiskey and drove home. He some how ended up driving 14 miles north bound in the south bound lanes of I-35 just north of Austin Texas. After passing 120 cars (clipping the side of one) he kept driving til he collided with a man on a motorcycle, killing him. This wasn't just any man, he killed a three tour Army veteran on Veterans day. I didn't want to condemn him for the choices he made that night. That was to easy. He had never been in trouble before after all. I just wanted him to own up to the effect it had on so many lives. 

I sat through his trial this week. I read the jury as he was giving testimony. I read the family of the victim as John's attorney was giving his closing arguments.  I sat by John's mother and father while the prosecutor was making their final arguments. Mostly, I was reading John. I wanted to see true remorse. I wanted to see him break down that steel wall he put up. I did see him cry. I saw him being honest. There were times he understood what he had done. But when the case was over and we sat and talked while the jury deliberated, that wall was still there. More so, he had very little remorse. He was still trying to look for faults in others in order to minimize what he had done. The rest of his family was doing the same. I felt very sad that such a good Christian family couldn't see past themselves and empathize with the family of a good man who's life was cut short, as well as, all the people effected by his death. Many of them were in that court room. I want to say something to Mr. Turner, the man who's only son was taken, but nothing I could say would give him consolation. I left before the jury came back. 

On the way back home, I drove down I-35. I wanted to find the exact spot where it happened. As I was driving, the lymph node in the right side of neck started to swell. I doubled back and parked at that spot. I thought it was further down the road, but I felt this was the right spot. Then I saw the X on the concrete barrier. The cops had put it there to indicate this was where the collision had happened. Then I saw the movie. I watched it from Dominick Turners' point of view. He was passing a truck and didn't see John's headlights until he was already in the lane. He instinctively tried to jump off the bike. He ended up flying through the air a good ways and died when he hit the pavement. He didn't panic, he didn't feel fear, he didn't suffer. 

I don't have a point to make, or a lesson to learn here. I just needed a way to express the emotion of the day, and get it out. I'm sad that it had to happen this way. I saw a change in John. From the man he was that day to the man he is today. I wanted to facilitate that process until he got on his knees and cried begging for forgivness. I wanted to see true humility. I never did. I can't help but feel that I could have said more, or done something to make that happen. I feel like I failed him. 

My motivation to help him came from a dream I had years ago. Long before I met John. It was so vivid and horrific that it stuck with me. After I met him, I realized, it was about him. I wanted to change the outcome so this dream didn't become a prophetic one. I was hoping I could keep it from happening. I never shared this with him, cause he would have thought I was kooky crazy. Maybe I should have. Maybe I should have described in detail his fate as I saw it. Maybe I said enough to change it. Maybe his fate was for him to change, and there was nothing I could do to stop it from happening. I just don't know.

He's in jail right now waiting to be taken to prison. He'll be there for at least 6 years and maybe 12. This will give him a chance to come to terms, or not, his choice. I'll still go visit and be there for him when he gets out. I can't help but think justice was done today. Tempered with mercy. After all one father still has a son, the other doesn't.

Questions on how YOU experience vibes/energy...


Empath

This is how I've explained what is happening: There is an electromagnetic field around everything. Some weak some strong. As radiation travels through these fields, some is absorbed, some is reflected. We have a very strong field around us that emanates from about 2 inches below our belly button. People who live in the city keep their field closer to them. I can feel it at about a foot or two away from their body. People who live in the country have a much larger bubble. I think it's more considerate to keep my field close to me in public, so I focus on shrinking it when ever i'm about to mingle with a group. In my minds eye I see the radiation and the fields. It isn't just people that have them, buildings, cars, fences, rocks, tools, cell phones, power stations, teddy bears, everything. I used to practice senseing these fields by dropping my keys on a table and finding them with my eyes closed. I keep my hand a few inches above the table and move it around til I felt them under my hand. Then I would pick them up. I can do it every time. It feels like a slight change in temperature. Radiation is warm and fuzzy. People sort of feel that way too. So think about how much information is passed through the air from one computer to another(Wifi) in the form of radiation. Simple radio waves can be interpreted by a receiver as complex sound. Are we not doing the exact same thing?  We are the receivers. The radiation people are giving off we interpret as emotion and vast amounts of other information. When I analyze that energy that I pick up, I get all kinds of impressions. I can hold onto it for days or weeks and read it at any time. I don't have to be standing in front of them. Once that connection is made I get new impressions and they can call me before they pick up the phone. I get the "I was about to call you!" all the time from those I keep that connection with. We can have this communication with anyone on earth because of the planets' electromagnetic field. There are fields with in fields and they all effect each other with the exchange of electrons and photons.

Something else you mentioned was how you used to take on others emotions but now you don't. When I was younger I couldn't understand how this could be(feeling what others feel) so it had to be what I was feeling. It drove me nuts until I realized what was happening. Now I purposely suppress my own emotion, so any emotion I feel is easy to identify as coming from a particular person. I still have to feel it, but it has no effect on my state of mind. It doesn't bother me at all to feel sadness from another as long as it's genuine. It's those cover emotions that I hate and make me sick. It starts as a tingle on the back of my head moves down my spine. Sometimes it can feel like a knife being pushed slowly into the back of my neck. When I'm in a large crowd of frustrated people my mind fills with dark clouds and I can't think clear. If I stay any longer I start to cry. To cope I'd get in the car, blast Slayer, and scream myself horse. Have other methods now. I don't let the emotions effect me as much. 

My wife is always asking how does so and so feel or what am I getting from them. Then I have to figure out how to put it into words. Describing what I'm receiving is hard to do. My mind puts it into pictures mostly. I see that picture when that person is close by. Women are flowers, plants, and animals. Men are different types of wood with different finishes or metal and stone. Although, some men are wilted flowers, and some women are blocks of granite. Those people I worry about. 

On the road I can feel what other drivers are about to do. So my field is expanded way out to read them. Keeps me safe. I haven't had a collision in 30 years. The one wreck I had was when I was stopped at a light. I think to myself what if everyone was empath? We would never have another traffic report! 

Also, shungite is suppose to absorb EMF waves

Living in a small town


Empath

I lived in a small town(pop 200) for 20 years. Then I decided I needed to move to a big city. I found a house and property on the out skirts more in the country. It's the perfect balance. Not many neighbors yet 20 mins from everything. I still spend most my time at home, but it was a great decision. Very happy where I am. My neighbors were actually closer in the small town. The vibe I got from it was distrust and a lot of back talking. I don't know what they were saying about me, but in a small town you get that. I was a loner and no one understood why. I felt their judgement any time I talked to anyone, so I stopped socializing all together. Now I have friends and can hide for the most part. I choose what groups I run with. Instead of just a bunch of local yolkals. Small towns can be a mixed bag. I like being close to a city and still have my sanctuary. Surrounded by 14 cats, 3 dogs, opossum, porcupine, turkey, raccoon, deer, and even coyotes. Plus I live in a forest with a stream in my back yard. I'm in Heaven here. And when I feel like it I go to the big city and see a show or ride my bike. Then when I'm done I go home and take a nap. You don't have to give up on city living, but you need to be able to get away from it and rest.

Questions on being Psychic...


Psychic and Paranormal

A couple of things I bet we can all do. First is pick up on pregnant women. The second is find lost things. 

Pregnant women stand out and glow, showing or not. I'm very attracted to them, but not in a sexual way. I see it as natures way of protecting them. They are very important to our survival. I haven't explored this with animals so much.

My wife always asks me where something she can't find is before she looks for it. This is more of a skill we can develop. The trick I've learned is not to actively search for it. It isn't something I do with my mind. I have to stop thinking about where it could be. In the past, I'd look for it until I got distracted and at that moment I would walk right to it. This is how I eventually figured out what was happening. It's much easier to find other people's things because I have no idea where it could be.  I'm teaching my daughter to do this, because she misplaces things all the time. It helps in a big way when things somehow end up in the trash and you don't want to go through all the trash to find it.

Theses are psychic skills by definition. It not just about visions and knowing. In all my treks deep into forests and exploring wilderness, I've never been lost. I couldn't tell you which way is north, but I always know which way to go.

Please Take An Empath Poll...


Empath

Do we really need to to sleep in regular patters that are dictated by society? Are we trying to fight against what our nature has dictated? To forsake our nature for the benefit of society does us harm. That can't be good. I get plenty of rest and am at my best when I sleep as I need too. I know many of us have to work during "normal business hours", but I can't go alone with it anymore. I do my best at night and early morning. I see no reason to fight it. So I take no sleep aids and would rather listen to my normal rhythms. I am much happier and healthier when I do.

The Book, Conversations with God


New Age

I read the foreword just to see what it was about. The part that struck me was this:

God: I talk to everyone. All the time. The question is not to whom I talk too, but who listens.

That communication to us from the Spirit is happening constantly. From inside and out. I get messages through nature, other people, and sometimes fortune cookies. He'll speak to us any way we listen, but we have to listen.

I've had many arguments with God. He always wins. In asking those vexing questions I have things explained to me in ways other people can not. I would never want to write them down. This back and forth communication is very personal. I think you could see this book as an example of that conversation, but your conversations @bill-walker would be different. Could be why your not getting into the book. Or it may challenge what you believe and you feel that it's hard to except. In which case I would say ask the Higher Authority. Go to the Source. I believe that's what the author intends here. To inspire us to have our own conversations.

We all have different beliefs. Sometimes slight, sometimes dramatic, but I would never want to tell you to believe anything that goes against your conscience. It's belief that is important. What ever it is that that increases your faith and brings you closer to God is what matters. But it can be hard to do if we hold on to those negative emotions that anchor us down and keep our beliefs from changing. No one man or woman has it right on everything. That is why I say go to the Source of all knowledge for conformation. I like hearing you say that it doesn't "ring true to my beliefs". It's a great opportunity to examine them. Are you up for the challenge?

Question for Empaths


Empath

I've had this general feeling of sadness for weeks now. Aches and pains that shouldn't be there and facial ticks that happen in public. I've never had facial ticks before. I don't know what to attribute it too. I can't pick up on anything specific. I see what happening in the the world and get sad about it, but so does everyone else. It's been very hard lately to be around people. I can't bring myself to socialize because I keep mucking it up. At church today I did the general hand shaking and hugs, but the conversation was very strained. I had nothing to say. I hate small talk normally. I kept calling people by the wrong name or just couldn't remember at all. So I got the hell out of there as fast as I could.

I saw some trash in a parking lot and went to pick it up. Then I saw some more and picked that up. I kept picking up trash and the more I did the more I saw. I gave up. It's everywhere.

Dealing with liars


Empath

Well, @snap, I relate completely. I could have wrote what you wrote and I wouldn't be lying. At 45yo I'm still trying to figure out the best way to deal with liars. This has come back up this past week for me when a friend asked me to call her husband and give him some encouragement. I feel the overwhelming need to help her out, but her husband is one of the worst liars I know. He lies about everything and tells these story's that are complete BS. I did call and asked him to let me take him for breakfast. At first he agreed then he backed out and told another lie why he couldn't. So I can't help him. I had to let it go. When you call out liars they get ANGRY! It's to much work to check my emotions and theirs. When they lie about lying and get angry, I give up. 

Because of all the complexity regarding human psychology, I try to live as an example and leave it at that. It's just easier to tolerate it. Isn't that being realistic?

Odd interaction with a medium


Psychic and Paranormal

Wow, did she ask for money? Was she charging for the energy work or just selling jewelry?

I do understand how that could be a very draining situation and you just simply slipped out of her mind. Sounds like it wasn't situation she couldn't control. If your BS meter was ticking high it might be something you should let go of and move on. I'm just now starting to deal with those cords myself, and would rather do it myself than rely on someone else, but just like going to a doctor you should definitely get a second opinion. Hopefully, you can get one here. I'm interested in knowing how she could have seen these cords so quickly and easily. It would be a good tactic a charlatan would use to reel you in. Usually, energy workers will wait until they are asked.

Other people's effect on Perception


Empath

Also, I feel about myself the way the other person feels about me. I think this is what your talking about @loconnoro. So the judgmental people make me feel like utter crap sometimes. In those situations we have to remind ourselves who we really are. That's where grounding and flushing becomes very useful. Otherwise, I end up being and acting the way they perceive me. It's a fulfillment of their judgement, and is sucks. The trick I found with new people is to send out my perception of myself before they start to make those judgments. 

If you haven't read it I recommend a little e-book that helped me:

Other people's effect on Perception


Empath

This is the main reason I did not like being an empath. It's difficult to win an argument when your emotions become their emotions. You see the situation from their point of view and give in, even when they are wrong. After just about every conversation I wonder why I said what I said or went along without knowing why at the time. It makes competition extremely difficult if not impossible. On the opposite side, when someone is angry at me for some perceived slight I'm am immediately angry at them. Even if I have no reason to be.

I see it as my responsibly in those tough social interactions to overcome the emotional manipulation. I don't blame them anymore. I just deal. I do it by turning down the volume to 0, and putting up a shield. Through practice this is something you can do very quickly. I have to be mindful of what can happen in any conversation, especially with family. It still isn't easy, but don't let it get you down. Overcome it.

Wind


Psychic and Paranormal

I'm big storm lover, and don't think you should feel bad about enjoying the experience. Mostly because I do and I don't feel guilty about it. There will be massive upheaval in peoples lives after this. That I see as a good thing as well. It brings people together and they start to look past each others differences and see them in a new light, at least for a time. People helping other people. It's  a great thing to see and be a part of. Nothing brings people together like a common enemy. In this case, a really wild storm! Enjoy

Oh yes, every time. It's like being in line about to ride the roller coaster. I don't think it's necessarily being tuned into the weather, but that heightened anxiety that happens before hand is depressing. I love roller coasters as well as storms. I wish I could share how I feel with them instead of the other way around. all though, if I could I wouldn't be praying for them. Our concern makes us want to intercede for them. I do believe (because of free will) God works in these situations when asked too. Not to save people from trauma exactly, but to help them through it. A lot of really good things happen after a hurricane. New relationships are formed and it changes their minds about each other.  If a least for a short time it's still a great thing. Afterward, I get to help them rebuild.

Night Skies, planes,an Angel and energy


Psychic and Paranormal

I would definitely see this as a message. I have been focused on "cleaning house" since the eclipse. I do it physically by getting rid of junk I don't need any longer. At the same time I'm doing it spiritually by letting go of that anger of the past. I have forgiven those in the past that led me to resentment, but it hasn't ended there. I keep forgiving them over and over. Any time I feel any resentment or anger I stop and let it go, and ask forgiveness for the things I have done and felt toward those people. For myself, this is something I'll be doing for the rest of my life. That way I don't allow others to have any power over me. This way I don't need to protect myself from them.

New empath but old soul....I can't work it out


Empath

Yes, do the work. It's good. It's really helping me right now to get back to reading and studying the Way of the Empath. Creative visualization practices help with grounding, shielding, and breaking those cords of attachment. Go back to the basics often. Read the Book of Storms. You can be powerful!!!

Empath

I love all the advice your getting here. It's really good. If I had known these things 25 years ago I would not be with the woman I am now. Having said that, my wife still has my undying loyalty. It's been a roller coaster of a relationship that led to being able to raise my daughter for the past 16 years. She is my sole focus and purpose, so I regret nothing. 

You don't have to get cat. They do a thing is all. They transmute the energy you pick during the day. I love cats and think every empath should a have few, but it's isn't necessary. 

I believe there is a reason we are attracted to them. They feel we can fulfill a need they have and want that to the point of obsession, but then they do everything to change us without changing themselves. It's what they truly desire yet they will fight the change with tooth and nail. The reason they need us is they can't change without us. Change is hard on everyone, so they play the games and fight like crazy. In the long run it can make us as empaths stronger, or keeps us weak if we allow it.

The one thing I would say that has already been said is analyse, analyse, and analyse again. Don't go by your "Gut" here because that will mislead you unless your a really healthy empath. It's incredibly hard to distinguish your emotions from theirs. Your spirit wants to be with them. In the greater scheme of human existence we all benefit if you marry a narcissist, because the odds are you'll have empathic children. I believe this is the Divine plan. It only works if we change them, not the other way around. At least our children will help change the world if we choose that burden. In the Christian world we are called Burden Bearers. I bet there is a name for it in Hindu as well, which is probably similar. The Indian religions know much more about us that eastern religions do. So I believe your on the right track.

Something else you mentioned was childhood abuse. It's important to forgive them and forgive yourself. That will help heal your spirit. It makes you stronger.

Empath

It isn't easy. You'll have to have the confidence of Ulysses(first name that came to mind). Every relationship I've ever had was with a crazy woman who thinks much more of herself than should. I say, work on yourself. Be the best version of yourself you can be, and be content with being alone. That way you get real picky. Test them over and over. They can hide behind being ultra nice and needy. That draws you in like a spider with a pretty web. You'll still be drawn to them even if you know what they are doing. You have to be strong. Woman like that anyway. I'm assuming your into woman, if so be the bull.

If you look for a partner in the right place your odds are better at finding someone more like you. You can volunteer at a soup kitchen or church events. I've meet great woman working for Habitat for Humanity. You could take up a new hobby like learning Aikido. Just stay away from the bar scene or anything like that. And get a cat or five. Cats are much more rewarding to sleep with IMPO. The fact that you are aware of this dynamic will go a long way.

Please Take An Empath Poll...


Empath

I live in Austin, TX. I think it's interesting that with this hurricane coming I haven't been able to sleep for about three days now. Now that the storm is here I was able to get a few hours in, but I don't feel like I really need sleep. Some how I'm sustained by all the emotion. This has happened before. I've been in situations where I didn't sleep for about 90 hours. I think it's weird, and I don't think it's healthy, but I don't get tired enough to sleep. I do love these big storms. They're exciting!

I remember when Katrina came through I was living by the coast close to Houston. The same thing happened. That was the day I was finally convinced  I was an empath, and that it's a real thing. The emotions were so high I couldn't deny it any longer.

Fibromyalgia


Healers

Thank you Cheshire Cat, It's a mystery that I would like to understand more about. You've given me some great information to study. I have about eight of those disorders on that list. Many of my family do as well. I have a theory about a possible cause for some of it. I'm interested not just to understand the empath connection, but the environmental impact on everyone.

As I get older my sensitivity to electromagnetic field energy and chemicals increases. Because of it I use no chemicals in my pool and do not like driving pass some of these power plants on the side of the road. When I work close to those high tension wires I feel fussy. The electromagnetic radiation coming off of them feels like super fast vibration. I'd go crazy living next to them, and they are hard to avoid. When I work in certain areas I have to take breaks every couple of hours to get away. It's the same as being in a mall for to long. I have to go back to work on monday in one of those places I dread. I'll be building a fence right under those wires. It takes almost constant grounding and prayer to get through it. I'm going to a rock shop today to see about protection stones and maybe a find lead suit to work in. 

I know empathy is a gift, but it isn't a gift to me, it's for others through me. I hope one day they learn to appreciate it. I very much appreciate your sacrifice, Cat, I don't just wish you the best I pray that you are rewarded for all you have been through.

Fibromyalgia


Healers

This something I want to understand. I have friends and family that suffer with it. Well I've been reading about it lately because I see a few people on this site that suffer with it as well. 

This is what I know: It wasn't considered a true disorder until the '90's. Before then it was considered a mental illness(like many things science doesn't yet understand). It happens mostly to women by a possible 9 to 1 ratio. It's linked to a problem with the nervous system. It's chronic and may be related to stress. 

I remember a time when I had pain in my forearms every day for a couple months. At first I thought it was just soreness but it didn't go away. It disrupted my sleep and became a major concern. I don't like doctors much, so I called a Shaman and asked her what was going on. She referred me to a astrophysicist who happens to be a Shaman and a doctor. He helped me out with some NLP techniques and did some other things I didn't understand. After that session I was free of pain and had some tools to lower the volume of the energy I was picking up in Houston(city on the edge of hell). I considered it a spiritual issue not medical and found a solution. The people I know with fibro are really stressed out people on the inside, yet they don't outwardly show that they are. I wonder if that has something to do with it?

The times I feel "phantom" pains are when other people direct extreme anger at me. Some times it's racial, or when I've offended them deeply(like not letting them leave the scene of an accident). It's a sharp pain on the back of my neck. Since I relate the pain to what I'm experiencing empathically, I wonder if you all do as well. Is Fibro a spiritual illness?

30 Traits of an Empath


Empath

The thing about antiques is some times it's good energy and some times it's more negative. I would much rather buy new stuff and spend a little more. My wife use to go thrifting and fill the house with trash she bought at garage sales. That drove me out of the house. It wasn't my home. I moved out to the workshop. She doesn't do the goodwill/yard sale thing anymore now that she understands it affects my Daughter as well.

I have an old leather chair I picked up off the curb that I couldn't let get thrown away, so I repaired it and am sitting in it right now.  It was the chair of a General, and a collage student. After I fixed it, I left it covered in the garage for about six months waiting for that energy to clear. If I had known how to clear it myself I could have saved some time. I still feel the Generals energy but not the collage campus type energy.  

I just figured out who the chair belonged too: Major General Clarence Reuben Autery, Sr of the US Air Force

What Are Your Favorite Empath/Medium/Psychic Movies?


Empath

I had never heard of the show Dead Files, so I watched the first episode last night and I'm hooked. I've always been curios about feelings I get from this places I've been to where I know something happened but didn't know exactly what or at least no conformation on what I believe happened. Amy is super cool. I really admire her for going though all she does. I use to run from it because it can be painful. She faces it and isn't afraid. I think I have a crush on her.

30 Traits of an Empath


Empath

I've taken the empath test many times over the years, and it's always these 30 traits that I score 29 out of 30. Number 4 is about how you react to images on a screen. I didn't understand why this is considered an empathic trait. I think it has more to do with how we believe we should feel about it that how we actually do. These scenes of war and horror on the nightly news don't affect me directly, yet I get an idea of what it's like living in a war torn country and sympathize with their plight. The only time I'm directly affected is in a movie theater. I remember seeing Tron 2.0 and being so overwhelmed by it I couldn't drive home. It was a very physical experience. I thought this was the greatest movie of all time! After seeing it again at home I was much less impressed.

#1: Yes

#2: Yes

I have a fitbit I use to tract my sleep. 6 hours average per night this week. I usually sleep about 3 hours at night and 3 during the day. 

The early morning is the best time of day. 2am to 5am I like to be awake. Any evening event will disrupt the pattern. Sometimes I skip sleeping all together.

Professions for Empaths

As you figured out, I want to be able to go to school with all the other kids. I used to wear protection stones on rings until they eventually broke. I never replaced them. I think I should make some new ones. I'll try it again.

As far as sleep goes, I'm naturally nocturnal. I'm looking into night school.

Questioning The Empath-Narcissist Connection


Empath

@rene- I could say the same thing, "they" ruined my childhood. I was lucky my Mother was an empath, but she played into the game the rest of my family was playing. I don't blame her because I know now how it is. That dynamic they create, it sucks. I would think about all my hopes and dreams that were dashed and held on to that resentment. Until I realized I was giving them power over my life by doing so. 

Now I take full control and responsibility for my own emotions. I forgive them. All of them. If I were to tell you everything that happened you might think I'm letting them off the hook, so to speak. I let myself off the hook instead. The past has no bearing on the future anymore. Simply by forgiving them, without asking them to acknowledge their wrong doing, I take my life back. It was so hard to do until I did it. That's when I got the understanding of why we do it. In a way, they gave me a gift.

Professions for Empaths


Healers

How do you deal with a classroom? Many of you have degrees which means you've spent years in school on college campuses. I've never been able too. I dropped out of high school, as soon as I could, and got my G.E.D. I went to a community college for one semester, and failed every class. I just stopped showing up to class after awhile. I couldn't focus.

I'm thinking what kind of job I need to be doing. I was a water treatment specialist for about 15 years. I let my licence expire and have trying to get it back, but in Texas they make it close to impossible. Water is life. Good water is important. I felt that I was fulfilling my purpose. 

I became a well driller last year. It was the best job ever! That drill rig is a grounding rod. I could lean on it and feel the vibration and send that negative energy down hole. Because of it I know these places where grounding is as easy as walking. The natural gas pipe line is grounded with a graphite grout to prevent lighting strikes. If your close to them you'll know it. The problem I had with the job was the other people around stealing my focus. If I was sharing their focus we were an efficient team, but when I was in charge that worked against me. On my jobs, I would pick helpers that didn't know what they were doing. Anyone with experience had their own ideas about how things should be done. They would interfere with my thought process. You have to focus in the drilling business, otherwise people get hurt, or die.

I was pushed out of that job. It's a competition. We all muscle for rank and recognition. I hate competition. I would rather take a loss and be able congratulate someone else on their victory. I share in it. On a team with a goal I could facilitate the bond between us. Afterward we would relish the victory over the forces against us. The harder it was, the greater the victory. The scars are a testament to our previous successes. That bond is a warriors bond. The next day it would be broken by competition, or time passing, or just the crap that people think we do. They didn't understand it. They were Roughnecks and Yard Dogs, and I loved them anyway. That job just wasn't for me.

I'm not really working right now. I took time off to figure out what I need to be doing. I liked the handyman work, but once again there are issues. I'd like to go back to school and get a degree in criminal justice. I could be a private investigator. I have an internal lie detector, and the ability to learn thing others can't or don't. Being an Empath is useful in so many ways, as long your using it to help others. You guys have found your niche. I haven't.

I want to know this: How do you deal with school?

Does trauma enhance our abilities?


Empath

@tigerlily I understand why you drink. I did for time, but never liked it. Cannabis on the other hand was necessary. I could never use the anti-anxiety drugs because I don't trust myself. If my emotions were taken away I wouldn't have any way of stopping myself from doing those things that I never want to allow myself to do. So cannabis was my only option and did get through the rough patches. I stay away from it now hoping I'll learn better ways of dealing with it all. I see so many that thrive as empaths. I want to be one of them. I know it takes suffering to get there, but I've found that isn't necessary. I was resisting for so long that when I stopped I found that it was the resistance that caused my pain. 

That sensitivity to others gets stronger every year. The sensitivity to pain gets weaker.

When the world feels against you


Empath

These events in our lives push us to grow. It's an opportunity. I like what @rene said "Stay balanced and watch as a spectator". We(all humans) personalize everything! When we don't it helps us let go of those emotions we put in cages and hold onto. 

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” 
― Frank HerbertDune

That works for any "pent-up" emotion if we don't respond to it, or react. Their emotion becomes our emotion, unless we let it go.

They are not just against you. They work against each other as well. It isn't personally directed at you. It's their personal inadequacy that they project onto you. It's our choice to accept it or reject it. It is hard to do when they believe what they do and feel is justified. Just know that it isn't. Humans are really really stupid. I say that not to condemn humanity, but to let you know they are not right. No matter how sure they are. We all have to rise above our own stupidity. 

I have leaned that, as much as I'd like to, I can't fix everyone . They fix themselves. I can facilitate that fix if I don't respond to their anger and frustration. I let it pass through me and can see things as they are.

Cool, I guess if they are not a problem then there's no need to worry about it. One of the mailmen in your area is an empath. He doesn't know it. His father worked the mail route in Scottsdale too, and is also an empath. He's retired.

Talking Weird Stuff


Psychic and Paranormal

@hop-daddy-  I don't see ghosts much. If you and your family are seeing that many that often something else is happening. Have you done any research on the property? Is it an old house?

The house I was in that night was a friends house. He went insane, his father died, and his mother went from being this pleasant  beautiful person to a mean old hag. They blamed me for everything that happened. I watched this great family turn sour in a year. He was my best friend. 

That fear wasn't mine. I know that now. I didn't back then. If I had known I would have pushed to have the house cleared of all that negative energy I picked up on. It was an old farm house. They had a horse stable and an arena. Things happened there that shouldn't have. I never did the research to find out, but I have a good indication of what it was. 

Your situation is completely different. I would definitely look into your theory of some sort of portal and get it to close. Or maybe, become a shaman yourself and help them cross over? It's all pretty weird, I know. I don't understand it, but I know we have purpose. We are the way we are for a reason. I don't believe in coincidence.

Questioning The Empath-Narcissist Connection


Empath

If you want to know why can tell you in spiritual terms. It's up to you whether you want to see it this way, but it gives me hope. 

ALL people need to become empathic in order for the world to be at peace. If that happens war will no longer be necessary. We will be able to work together with extreme efficiency. We won't have to speak much at all. The bond between humans will eliminate distrust and allows us to love. It's our job to impress on to the rest of humanity that this is what they really want. What stands in the way of that happening? Judgment, fear, contempt, anger, resentment, lust, pride, and so forth. We know this they don't. We have to convince them with love and patience. It's our journey too, which builds character. We grow and help them do the same. It's progress, it's a purpose.

Health & Paranormal


Psychic and Paranormal

I have seen something like what your describing. Webs in fog sort of. It's kind like smoke but not thick with shimmery strands, but I don't see it with my eyes. More out of the corner of my eye. When I see ghosts I'm not really seeing them, yet I do see it. Hard to explain in words. 

The shimmery fog I see at church during worship. It swirls around above the congregation while we sing. The sanctuary around the building gets brighter. Meaning the electromagnetic field is being filled with radiation that is coming from the people inside it. When people tell me "I felt the spirit move" I want to say "Yes, I saw it", but I don't dare. 

I don't understand a lot of this stuff. I can only relate my experiences. 

My aunt has major issues with Fibromyalgia, and yes, she takes a ton of drugs. I wish I could suggest cannabis since it's an herb that has a multitude of beneficial effects. She isn't open to it.

Understand, we over think things. I know I do. We believe doctors have the cure for what ails us, but in truth we are all guinea pigs they experiment on. My wife was perfectly balanced while she was on wellbutrin. She thought it was helping her. 

We are three in one. Mind, Body, Spirit. If all three are healthy, we are in balance. If you focus solely on one, your neglecting the other two. We use the body to change the mind which changes the spirit. We use the spirit to change the mind which changes the body. We use the mind to change the body which changes the spirit. So ask yourself this question and honestly answer to yourself "do I want to be healthy?" It's the first step in changing your reality.

Wow, ghost to leprechauns. This is why the rest of the world thinks we're just banana nuts crazy.

I'm not telling my stories. To many evil things happen and end up leaving ghost energy behind for years after the event. I would like to know what triggers it happening again and again. It's like watching a horror movie in 3D. 

One time I was watching a ghost standing in the corner of the room. The cat that was sleeping on the bed with me was watching her too. Ever heard a cat chatter it's teeth? We both just stared at it till it left through the window. I never felt as much fear as I did that night. The cat just laid down and went back to sleep.

I'll share a good story: I was at a wedding. Afterward, people were standing in small groups talking. It took place on the bank of the Frio river. So all these wood folding chairs were set up on this gradual slope toward the bank. I saw a vision of an ambulance parked on the grass next to a group people. So I get the idea to walk over there and stand right behind the group. I was interested in this man talking while facing up hill. Soon enough he started to loose his balance, so I put my hand on his back and pushed him forward a bit. He kept talking, but as I walked away he looked back and said thank you. So I said "that's what I'm here for". I always wondered if latter he got the idea I was an angel. I chuckle at the thought. If he only knew.

Health & Paranormal


Psychic and Paranormal

Wellbutrin (bupropion) is an antidepressant medication used to treat major depressive disorder and seasonal affective disorder.(copy & paste)

I did some research on this drug years ago. My wife was on it. It's very strong. It wasn't meant to be taken long term. It takes away emotions, which means it takes away your ability to defend yourself. If we treat symptoms the problem is never addressed. You know this is a spiritual matter. The depression you feel is a motivation is solve this issue. If you treat it chemically you have no reason to deal with the cause. The fibro is an attack on your nervous system. We have a VERY sensitive nervous system.  That's about all I know except this: Love makes them starve. So don't worry, don't be angry, don't be sad, and don't be a victim. They trick you to spark those emotions they feed on. You'll have to be clear minded to know your own emotions.

Herbs, stones and crystals help. Bach flower remedies help. Smuging with sage helps. Getting off any and all chemicals helps. Swimming in moving water helps. Exercise helps. I suggest trying different things to see what works for you. I like salt and hiking through the woods. Depression comes and go's. It's just what we all deal with. You have to be strong. This something you can ask for, strength. It's offered to you. Call upon Holy Might!

Selfish people or what ??


Empath

As you can tell from just about every post on this thread, we all feel guilty about not doing what these people want us to do. It's hard to say no, but it's important that you do for their sake. If you allow selfish people to feed off of you they get the idea it's the right thing to do. Every time we give in to their will that idea is reemphasized. They can't learn that way.

It's better in the long run to get over the guilt. Find a way that works for you that alleviates that guilt without giving in. Your doing the right thing.
