Judgmental Person?


Empath

Awww thank you so much for taking the time to tell me all this, you could have replied during your free time and not during work though, I hope I didn't bother you so much.

I will definitely practice taking out roots, thanks once again @womanwhowalks :)

Judgmental Person?


Empath

I don't know if I'm doing this right, but to cut off energy links, I imagine invisible chain links to other people and break them apart mentally whenever I sense unwanted attachments.

But I don't know what you mean by taking out the roots. How do you take out the roots @womanwhowalks? I haven't made my research on that yet, you see, and I really appreciate all the help you guys have been giving me.

It would make sense that he is a hidden narcissist, that explains why I freeze up when he directs a question at me.
For now I will focus on what I am doing and block out whatever energy this is, to stay sane. I will also remove cords of attachments and links, thank you for the reminder @womanwhowalks, I always forget to do that.

The Power of Prayer


Empath

I still cannot bring myself to introduce the concept of "empaths" to her as we are not that close yet, but she already knows that she is special, so I'll leave it at that for now. Maybe I'll send her a link to one of Elise's blog here.

I seemed to have gained her trust, and she lights up now every time she sees me.  I feel like I have a puppy following me around, I never imagined she would become attached to me. She calms down now when she's around me, and that is such a relief. I know that she sensed that we have something in common.

It's becoming more and more apparent that her "tough" front is a coping mechanism, so I got her back when people start badmouthing her actions. Who knew she would become a dear friend to me?? 😂😂

Really glad I came here, I'll keep you guys updated.

Judgmental Person?


Empath

Just for a little background, this is my second degree, and all the students in the class are adult professionals.

I'm getting more and more annoyed with him these days. It's like he's expecting everyone to give wrong answers by giving unfair questions that are impossible for our level to answer.

It's nothing like your situation @water-lily, but focusing on what I am doing is a good idea. I wonder why I didn't think of that before, I've always been using that approach. I'll give that a try, thanks again @water-lily

Also, I know for a fact that he is a kind soul. Maybe he just wants to play with our heads, perhaps he gets off on that. And hopefully, like you said, time will resolve all this.

@womanwhowalks :
No, he does not verbally assault me. He's not mean either. It's just his tone of speaking and his eyes, that somehow freeze me up.

I would like to think that I am not failing his class. I still have a shot at this, I just have to stop being so helpless around him.

Tools for Empaths

hana:

once you reach the point where you start looking at food differently, it's the best feeling in the world. 

Food really is medicine guys. Be well ♡

❁ ✾ ✽ ❃ ❋

And leave the negative people in your life behind. The ones trying to tempt you away from your goal, or go to places that aren't a part of your goal. You will find that your good friends will stick with you, push you, and support you on your journey, and build you up.  

I have been raised on a somewhat organic diet, and I couldn't agree more with what you say about food being medicine.

I've noticed that when I cheat with fast food and the like, I do not function that well. Sadly, I'm quite tight on the budget now, so I couldn't afford fruit these days, fruits are expensive where I live, but hey, I always go for the natural option every time I could.

Also, we really are better off without negative people in our lives. Makes such a huge difference to be free of them.

Judgmental Person?


Empath

There is always that one person you meet who make you stutter, say foolish things or act silly and awkward with. You know you're not acting like yourself, but somehow when you're around them, you become another person.

I read in another thread here about this situation with "judgmental people," who expect, or somehow persuade, others to act according to their judgment. But then you snap out of the spell as you see through their real intentions.

One such person has been bothering me though, an old professor in our university. I still can't figure him out, he is such a puzzle to me. His eyes, sometimes light up with amusement, but most of the time they are fixed on judging or seeing through each person in the class. He is not like the other "judgmental people" I've met. He has such a gentle and kind aura, that I often feel calm or let my guard down during his class. He does not feel intimidating like the others.

But when I get called to recite, like most of my classmates, I would speak gibberish, like I twisted my tongue and forgot how to construct sentences. I know I'm better than that, if I really wanted to I can talk my way out. Maybe he thinks I'm so bad in class that I couldn't look him in the eye, but it would be a huge trigger for me if I were to make direct eye contact. When he's not looking my way, I see the mix of emotions in his eyes.

It's just that I always forget to keep my guard up because of the "calm" I feel, then it's like I'm trapped at his own pace. What's worse is that I feel giddy with my silly answers while I'm in class. But then I'd snap out of the haze later, and regret not doing a lot better.

I don't know how to deal with this. It's taking too long for me this time to overcome this obstacle.

A little help? Thanks

The Power of Prayer


Empath

Oh yeah, I might be looking at a younger version of myself, except I was so much worse. She seems to be a lot better at dealing with people.

She fits all the description you gave. It's like all the puzzle pieces finally connected. So the jumble of emotions in her eyes shows that she is an impaired empath, and that's why there's negative energy around her even though she smiles so brightly. That came off as pretentious to me at first, but to think it's actually because she doesn't know about flushing / grounding.
One more thing is that, everytime I see her, she seems to be always going out of her way to help people, definitely an empathic trait.

Feels good to know about another empath near me. I'll probably casually tell her about it and if she seems willing, perhaps I could help her out.

Thanks again @hop-daddy, your insights have been so helpful.

The Power of Prayer


Empath

I don't know, I just felt for sure at that time that her fear was not true. I felt dark energy when I made eye contact with her.

Thinking about it though, maybe I did overanalyze the situation. I pulled two all-nighters before that day, so maybe I was being overly sensitive and I am making not much sense.

Her energy continues to confuse me as I interact with her, she feels intimidating and amiable at the same time. She is outspoken, so maybe the possibility never occurred to me. But for the most part, she's starting to look like an empath to me.

Thanks for pointing things out @hop-daddy, I am beginning to see her in a new light. And now my original post is starting to sound childish even to me 😂😂

The Power of Prayer


Empath

Yet another long post, but I really just want to share how amazing the power of prayer and faith is.

Classic scenario: Ghost story telling time in campus

A batchmate started talking about having visions and being able to predict certain life events. Ok, I can handle that.

But here comes a freshman who I barely knew for a day, who kept on saying "Yeah, I know that feeling. I experience that too"

Now, I was playing along and giving them the benefit of the doubt, who doesn't love ghost stories?

Then the stories started getting a bit uh creepier, and I was feeling a chill coming from behind me. Woah, I might be getting carried away, I thought to myself, and started calming my heart down with prayer, which I mostly sing.

Knowing myself that I have already calmed down, I was still feeling chills so I got confused when I realized that the energy was moving towards a certain direction.

It was right at this moment that the girl kept on murmuring "No, no, stop sharing stories" and acting like she's distancing herself from some invisible entities.
No one was paying her any attention, but it all suddenly dawned on me that it was her causing the mild "blackhole of turbulent emotions"

Scared that she might discover what I am, I played along and acted curious about her "gift", which turned out to be a bad BAD decision.

I kept singing and declaring my faith to myself as she kept on warning everybody about having a bad feeling about the last person who kept on sharing ghost stories.

As we were leaving, she suddenly warned me not to touch a campus cat while she was getting away from it, giving everyone present a meaningful look. I complied at first as not to offend her beliefs. But being a crazy cat person that I am, I couldn't resist cuddling with one of the precious best friends I made in school who always brighten my mood up. Hate to break it to you babe, but you are missing out on how cats are such beautiful and lovely creatures 😁
Also for me, what you don't believe won't hurt / affect you.

As I got up and wished the cat well, the girl suddenly blocked my way and stared right through my eyes. I was caught off guard, but I managed to stare back with an innocent expression, averting my gaze at the last minute to break the onslaught of negative emotions escaping through her eyes.

It then got to me that I couldn't identify narcissists right away because I keep avoiding eye contact and I keep spreading positive vibes to people, which was what I did when I tried to get along with this kid.

Poor kid, now our schoolmates have identified her as a weirdo, I mean, what sane empath would reveal what they are to people who are practically strangers?


Good thing I went to eat out with my good friends right after that as I continue singing out my faith. When the power of prayer came up as a topic, I am so glad that I can agree with it wholeheartedly.

So this is why we pray without ceasing, I felt instantly released from the awful vibes which haunted me for more or less an hour - which was a big improvement for me.

Not gonna lie though, the healer part of me keeps on worrying on how to patch things up with this girl right away. She seems a good kid with a lot of potential. I don't want her to walk the crooked path of narcissists, and I think it's not too late for her, hopefully.

Sensing Feelings/Thoughts when in the water


Empath

Cat Whisperer:I don’t know if you believe in reincarnation, but @womanwhowalks could be on to something. I know myself to be terrified of heights. One of my past life memories involves falling off a cliff. It is something to think about. You possibly hit the nail on the head though with your experience when you were younger. Fear has a way of imprinting you soul and staying with you....even after your present life. Best wishes for putting your anxieties to rest.
Blessings

Thank you all, I really needed encouragement since I am both terrified of heights and depth, which sucks big time.. oops

Let's all get better soon 😊

Sensing Feelings/Thoughts when in the water


Empath

LoconnorO:

I usually feel at peace when I'm around a large body of water. There are some times when I just don't feel like being in the water, or I don't like being at busy pools, but for me I usually feel other people's emotions less when I'm in water. That's probably why I love showers lol. I would think that most of what you're feeling is from your anxiety with water, although I wouldn't be surprised if other people's anxiety can make it worse. Did something happen to you when you were younger around water?

What's really weird for me though, is that the tension I am feeling from the water seems to get stronger when I am left alone in it. Unlike when I am at busy pools, where I can be distracted and somehow spend longer time in it. If I let my guard down, it feels like the water is pushing at me and suffocating me.

Now that you mention it, I nearly drowned when I was a child and my relatives just laughed it off. That may be it, I never thought seriously about that incident.

Anyway, I might feel helpless in the water, but I am so in love with the rain :)



Karen2:

Hi...maybe your remembering a past life....usually phobias that are not caused by a recent trauma are attributed to a trauma from a past life that you've lived....if your feeling afraid at more than one or all bodies of water and not just one or 2 places then that might something to think about....


Yeah, definitely something to think about.. Thanks for the insight :)

Sensing Feelings/Thoughts when in the water


Empath

Every time I am in the swimming pool or any body of water - no matter how shallow, no matter how I am surrounded by people that make me feel somewhat safer - I would be overwhelmed by the feelings / thoughts I sense in the water. It feels like they are all coming towards me, making it harder and harder for me to breathe. They are so intense and jumbled up that I have to get out of the water immediately before I get hit by a full-on panic attack.

Or maybe it's because I'm aquaphobic, fear might just be getting the better of me.. It may just be my imagination.. Maybe someone here had experienced something like this?

I recently tried to get past this phobia through exposure therapy, but I am not sure I would go through it again. Might just have to avoid the water altogether.

Now, I don't remember where I read this, but empaths are supposed to be naturally drawn to the water. Unlike me, are you drawn to the water?

Other people's effect on Perception


Empath

Zacharias:

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. 

Oh man, that was why I act a certain way around some people, even though I know it's not like me to act like that. I have to keep on mastering grounding and flushing, so that other people do not get to dictate who I am as a person. This is such an eye-opener, thanks

Questions on being Psychic...


Psychic and Paranormal

@zacharias, I agree in finding things not by actively searching, but walking right to them. But I must say I am a hopeless case when it comes to directions. I am easily lost and have no sense of direction whatsoever.

I am not much of a fan of the word "psychic" too, but "empath" and "clairvoyant" works for me.

Certain Person Trigger


Empath

I agree that her soul feels so wrong too, even without saying anything. I regret that I have to make eye contact when talking to her to get across my point. Eye contacts are my triggers, so I probably have to work on toughening up. She feels so rotten and corrupted that I feel so sorry for her for being this way. I always think of her as a lost soul and that she is too far gone to be saved even though she's still alive.

I've resolved to steer clear of her, thanks to your advice @womanwhowalks, and just send her good thoughts from afar. I know, I'm really positively stubborn this way >.<

To keep my emotions in check, I'll counter her malicious vibes with good thoughts. This is really a testing time for me, and I can't help but shudder at the thought of what's to come in the future, when this is just possibly to prepare me for that ahahaha

Thanks the warnings, I really needed them. I actually did not think much of her at first, so I let my guard down around her and it got so ugly for me.

Until I realized recently that she was sapping the energy right out of me.
I'll continue to put up a strong shield and shut her off from my radar, hopefully I won't have to interact with her too often. Thankfully, I'll be graduating in a year and I'll be free from her presence soon :)

I'll continue hoping for the better though, it's actually for my own good - it's how I deal with stress. Also, it helps me to start letting go of toxic people in my life, if that makes any sense..

"She knows what you are so just be careful" *chills, how creepy*

Definitely agree with you @womanwhowalks, they really drain a lot of energy, and I noticed that people around her are also being affected.

Gaah is this a battle of spirits or wits then?
Hmmm, what's strange is that she has been sharing a few of her plans with me. Or maybe that's just a trap, like "keep your enemies closer" thing. Anyway, I am so not playing along with her plans, teehee 😆

Just to clear things up a bit, she is not my co-worker, thank goodness. I am just a humble student myself, and this is in a college setting, my second degree for career change. Guess that makes things more complicated.

Anyway, I always show her respect, hoping that she will learn to do the same in time. I do believe in seeing the good in people, and perhaps somewhere deep in her soul, there's still a spark of hope left..

I've noticed recently that when I come prepared with a strong mindset, nothing, not even her energy, can ruin my good vibes. Just got to master flushing out her energy from my system, thanks for the advice 😊

Long post ahead~

Just wanted to share about my situation which I am battling right now..

There's this lady in our school who has quite the authority, who I try to avoid at all costs, but I get to interact with her often since she works closely with students..

I guess you could call her an "energy vampire", she sugarcoats her words and make it seem like she really cares for me, when I can actually smell the stench of her lies and malicious intent from far off..

Witnessing how almost everyone keep being swayed by her words makes me feel so frustrated. Even my most trusted mentor, who is a father figure to me and to all students, keeps leaning towards her favor and doesn't seem to care that much about me like before - this is the most upsetting of all.. I don't know who to go to for any school concerns now, since I keep thinking it's only a matter of time before she claws her way up to the top by her manipulative means..

Her malicious vibe is so overwhelming that I can feel it like invisible tentacles emanating from within her, reaching out and ready to attack anyone, even from inside her office.

I absorb quite a bit of her energy, before I realize what I'm doing and put my personal bubble shield back up..

Anyway, what I'm really getting at is that, I don't want any of her energy, I want to stop thinking negative thoughts about her and to stop hesitating to go to school because I might run into her..

I don't want this to ruin my school life, which I am starting to appreciate now that I am finally living as myself, as I develop my empathic abilities..

I've managed to steer clear of energy vampires before, but being obliged to talk to one from time to time really takes too much energy..

After my encounter with this person, only a residue of the sickening feeling is left which, thankfully by now, only lasts for a few hours..

Any advice?
How were you able to finally set yourself free from the influence of people like this?


Feels so good to finally let it off my chest by the way, really glad that I have you all to talk to 😊

Thanks 😄

Empath

I totally agree with @cat-whisperer too.

Looking at it from a non-empath's perspective, it is normal to back off when someone "reads" their minds, or feelings in this case.

So I probably will never be able to tell others that I am an Empath.

These days, I just imagine that we Empaths are superheroes, with superpowers that are kept secret to the whole world. I know, pretty childish, but that makes this whole Empath thing not too overwhelming for me, since I am just starting to embrace my gift and develop it.

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


Empath

Yes, me too. I don't have that strong of an immune system, but I rarely had a fever or any sickness since I was a kid. But for the past few years, it's weird how I have to deal with frequent migraines, muscle pains, severe exhaustion, panic attacks, and digestive issues. They are happening to me more frequently and it's freaking me out - it's like there's no time to rest from getting sick.

I do suspect that the world being such a mess right now has a big role in this, and I am working my way towards shutting off all those "pollutants" from my radar.

I agree with @loconnoro with the Natural remedies, I find myself reaching out for a teabag these days than my usual cups of coffee. I also find physical exercise really helpful - though all that I can handle for now is brisk walking on a treadmill or going out for walks.

Let's all get better and healthier soon!

Question for Empaths


Empath

Hi, I agree that human energy has some effect on nature.

These recent years I have been feeling strong awful vibes from all over the place, so bad I almost have to force myself to go out every time. 

There's just this general feeling of hopelessness, and all the negative vibes are floating around, making the air more and more polluted. I feel so exhausted like never before these days, just from shielding myself away from those "pollutants". It's like you always have to be on your guard. That's why I don't really watch or read news nowadays, they are so depressing.

I can't stop wondering how non-empaths can be so oblivious to all of these.

Though I really to try my hardest to always see the bright side in everything, cheers :)
