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.

Geomagnetic Storm


Empath

Idaho has had over 300 earthquakes in the past few weeks. I hope this is not a prelude to the big one. A Geo storm could be a trigger? 

I have developed a sensitivity to electromagnetic fields over the last few years. I wonder what this will feel like?  I'm getting excited. Thanks for sharing this.

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!!! When you are, the boundaries don't matter anymore.

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.

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.

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.

I love what @indego-dog said. I think she gets it.

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.

Talking Weird Stuff


Psychic and Paranormal

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.

I have to share this: I showed this post to my wife. I want her to know herself better and understand the dynamic she created. It made her feel bad. So I told her, don't worry, there are many people much more screwed up than you are. She said, "That is the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me!".

Hi Honey, I'm talking about you. You know it's cause I love you so much!!! Just the way you are.

Does trauma enhance our abilities?


Empath

Your talking about hyper alertness. Many of my friends are Vietnam vets(those that saw action). We have a kinship they don't understand. They assume I was in the military, and are very surprised when they find out I wasn't. It happens over and over. One guy, talking about the war over lunch, thought I was actually in Vietnam. He asked where I was stationed. Dude, I was born in '71.

It is awesome. The change I made was to stay around people that work at it. They have to want to grow and become better than they are. I find that I can't help those that don't want help, and even if they do, they have to ask for it. I'm blocked otherwise and I waste my time trying. I am subject to the spirit of others. Once I realized this it was easy to find those that could help me.

Wow, yes. People come up to me after say things like this time it was different, or better. I see that my presence has an effect, but I don't know what I'm doing. I feel that if I think about to much it won't happen. So this is something I'm not trying to figure out. 

Sunday one of the girls sang a song that overwhelmed me. I couldn't help but cry. She has been one I've watched since I've been there. She's the most beautiful loving caring being in that church. I am in awe of her. That's her gift.

Psychic and Paranormal

Man do I love you guys. I knew the answers to my questions would be here. Otherwise, I wouldn't have wanted to come back. It is so what I need to hear. This gives me insight and direction. 

@empathinboston - I'm open to anything you want to send me. I'm reading a lot right now. I found so much information that it will take time to digest it all. Whenever the sensitivity increases I go on a search for as much info as I can stuff in to my brain and sort it out as I go through life. If you give the name of this book, I can find it. Don't worry about my spinning mind. I'm used to it. 

As I go through that list, I see the things that I have been "led" to do. So this is conformation that I am on the right track. I'm not working right now because I was sick of sucking sawdust and climbing through attics. Mostly, I was tired of picking up that energy in peoples homes. Being a handyman has been hard. I want to be a blacksmith. 

@hop-daddy - I may never know the truth of what happened that day. I have a feeling is all. If could go back in time(which I be able to do some day) maybe I'd know, but it's not important to have the answer. What's important is that we question. The root word is "quest" after all. These events spur our drive to understand. Thank you for sharing. Skeptics have been a wealth of knowledge for me.

Eyes-Judgy


Empath

It's very easy. He's a classic narcissist, like my wife of 25 years. These people are easy to be around until they aren't. They feel they have to control you and they work very hard at it. It's how they survive, cause life is hard on everyone. No one gets a free pass to live a life without pain. He responded to the pain by blocking it out, but never learned how to control others. So he drank to socialize. He's just afraid. Most people are. The ones I worry about are the ones that are not.

I do feel his judgement and it makes me sick. I want to say, how can you of all people make a judgement of me? But I don't, cause that IS a judgement. So lets break it down:

A sitting judge is taking in all this information from evidence and testimony, but withholds making a judgement until all the information is available to be analyzed. Then at the end he, or she, comes to a conclusion, and uses a gavel to let it be known the judgement has been made, and so ends the argument.

So it isn't judgement per se that you need to avoid. It's coming to conclusions. In order to understand why you have to look for the black goose. After all, not all geese are white.

I say this to you to spare you. No one wants to be around someone they perceive as judgy. You'll be a much happier person by not judging at all. That doesn't mean you don't read them to understand their motives. Please do, that helps to protect you. Just know it gets complex. They are trying to survive too in the way they know how. We are not about convincing people they need to put up those walls of "self protection". We're about tearing them down. It's all it how you react to what you learn. Try not to, but don't ignore it. Your not suppose to know these things anyway, right? If they think you do they get scared. We have to live in secret for their sake. But don't worry, they'll come around some day.

 Also, this guy is learning humility! I've seen the change happen. He is humbled by all the people that have surrounded  him to help him though this. We do it, because we can't throw people away that make mistakes. If we did, we'd all be in the trash heap. It's just a shame someone had to die for this change to happen. He's been sober for a few months now. He says it's been 18, but I know that's a lie. No one else knows this. I keep his secret without ever letting him know that I know. It's a crazy world.

Eyes-Judgy


Empath

There's this guy I take to breakfast every Friday. He did something very bad. He got drunk one night and drove the wrong way down the highway til he ran into a guy on a motorcycle. He's going to prison. I started this friendship with him to find out what happened in his life to bring him to this point. 

I had to put away all judgement and show him that I care in order to open him up. When I look into his eyes it's like staring at a blank wall. He has become so disassociated from his emotions he doesn't know what he's feeling. I do now, but not at first. The reason he is so interesting, is that when I met him he had already done the thing he did and had shut down inside. The cover emotions he uses are from an out of control ego. It's not easy to sit there and listen to him talk about things that he should be crying about and yet he stays perfectly calm. Up until the moment when he feels something, then the subject changes. He thinks he's about to lose it, and shuts down again. He learned to do this at around 8 years old. That deep sadness is still there. It's strong. He had a friend that moved away. To him, it was as if he died. Some one probably told him to "suck it up and deal with it". His grandparents died in a car crash a few years ago. He said "I didn't feel anything, is that bad?" I said no, it's normal.

The things you see when you put away judgment are the things you really want to know. His eyes are not draped in a shade, it's a blackout cover. He doesn't want anyone to know what he perceives as weakness. What I see is that little 8 year old boy that can't grow up.

Empathic practices


Empath

Ok, here's another one: Aikido

Of all the different martial fighting methods Aikido is the only one that claims to be a practice in empathy as well. The reason for this is how they practice. You train with a partner. You take turns. One person attacks, the other defends. You do this four times, then you switch. It takes a lot of non verbal communication to respond correctly and not get hurt, or hurt others. Your not suppose to speak on the mat but in most dojos the rules are pretty lackadaisical. It's called the martial art of peace, but people seriously get the wrong idea about what that means.

For me personally, my training increased my awareness of where people are, and helps to discern their intent. In any conflict you have to figure out if they really mean you harm or if they're just barking. Otherwise, you can escalate a situation that didn't need to be. When it comes to conflict I'm so glad I'm an empath. But most of time.....

I'm looking for more of these places where people are creating bonds and learning to empathically communicate. You understand if they do, we can have peace.

Does trauma enhance our abilities?


Empath

I can tell many of you have had very hard lives. I've heard the stories. Ones I won't repeat. The horror of humanity I know full well. 

I assumed I never became a serial killer because I was an empath. I fit the profile otherwise. Now I'm thinking the things I went through could have served to enhance my abilities. It's hard not to believe I was born this way since half my family show empathic traits, and a few of us know we are. My cousins are drug addicts and alcoholics(myself included). They are able to drown it out and learn to survive without ever being aware of what they are. I was never able too. I knew what people were thinking. Many times it keep me from being molested or otherwise injured by those out to get me. So empathy started early. Was it the trauma that made me more aware? Can you relate?

Vampires?


Psychic and Paranormal

My father was a mechanic for the airlines all his life. So I got free tickets. Back then it cost me $27 to fly to London. I use to love flying. 

Things have changed that's for sure, but this was different than anything I had experienced before. I remember a flight with a crying baby. She was in extreme pain because of pressure in her ears. The rest of people on the flight just wanted to "shut that damn baby up already!".(please never fly with a baby). I could pick out those that were more angry than those that were trying to ignore and just felt irritated. And yes, all I wanted to do was to hold that baby.

If someone on that flight felt that much panic. I assume I would be able to pick them out. I was looking for that person and couldn't figure out who. Once people get on the plane they relax and calm down for the most part. That was the vibe except for me.

I don't panic, I've been trained not too. So I knew it wasn't me. Yet, since then I have. It happens when I'm stuck in traffic on a Saturday. Not so much during weekday rush hour, but Saturdays are dangerous. I think about going off road and just getting home anyway I can. The difference is in that situation is it builds up. I can feel it coming on. My mind gets cloudy till I can't think then the run response kicks in. I say a prayer and it goes away. When I was on that plane, it hit me so quick I wasn't aware it was happening. It was like road rage. When someone slaps you with anger. 

What I've been reading about is what happens in the spirit world during these events. I get attacked for it. Depression and anger is normal to me, but not anymore. That leaves me to think there is something someone or some thing doesn't want me to know. So @hop-daddy, your an interesting guy, I have a question: If i'm right about what I was picking up on, and these women had attacked me some how, what would you consider them to be and where did they learn to do this? 

"Know your enemy as you know yourself, and you will not be harmed in a hundred battles" Sun Tzu

You do understand I have to learn how to fight back.
