Seeing Faces When Falling Asleep


Psychic and Paranormal

@hop-daddy

They are whispering voices, or distinct, louder voices, snatches of conversation. I don't see visual cues when I hear this though. And on the other hand, my visions are silent. I have had scent prompts too. Mostly floral scents. Or a scent very similar to ozone or green grass or rain. Most of this happens to me while I'm doing something else not trying to tune in or experience. When it does happen though I do stop and try to decipher.

Music ran through my head for years. Melodies from songs, or random tones. 24/7 except when I was asleep. Only now have I gained the ability to shut it off. As my empath skills grew the noise in my head quieted.

Giving up


Empath

Overwhelmed it's not a good place for me. I literally want to run away from myself or step out of my body just so I don't feel anymore. I have actually begun open-ended roadtrips to combat this. Nothing much helps when I'm like that. Except for crying. That seems to unburden my soul. After that I'm almost like a blank slate, energy neutral. 

Then I can begin again. I know now when I'm about to become overwhelmed. I feel like striking out at the one person who loves me best. When I get to that spot and feel that temptation I turn myself off and let the feelings wash over me. I cannot battle them back. It just makes things worse. And then I cry for as long as it takes me to purge myself.

Crying is healing for me. It rids me of the vestiges of sadness/hopelessness/anger etc taken on by me from others, that I didn't successfully rid myself of when I received that.

Is depersonalization disorder connected to empathy?


Empath

Yes. Often times. Like I'm hovering outside of the situation and my reactions are entirely spontaneous and unplanned. It's as if I'm listening to my own advice. I can also step out of a threatening circumstance and thwart it, and deflect bad energy.

Are you an open book or not?


Empath

@hop-daddy

I cannot actually say for what reason this happens but I've never had a time in my life where I wasn't holding several confidences at once or people didn't come up to me to talk. Even at my various places of employment I was always the go-to girl. My empath really bloomed over this past year. I've gotten so I can read something or look at a photo and receive a strong impression. I've healed relationships and given solid advice that furthered people in the correct paths for their own lives. 

Even people who are naturally reticent or known as stand-offish or stuck-up open up in my presence. People often take my hand or touch me, too. Quite frequently there are tears or a begging look in their eyes. And then, a calming and a settling. Like you said it's the listening we do that seems to help most. And when (if) I reply back it's like I've stepped aside and my mind takes over and what comes out of my mouth is entirely spontaneous. And I feel such a love, respect and compassion for the person. That's the most striking aspect.

My maternal great grandmother was an empath. In her day they called her a wise-woman. And my maternal grandmother read tea leaves, palms, and did card readings. Is it passed on? As a child I often saw visions related to those around me. As in one case, the outline of a crying angel above the head of one of my mother's best friends. A while later she was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Do you have someone you can be yourself with @hop-daddy? Someone who understands the trials of an empath? By nature empaths work alone but a supported and loved empath does better work. IMO

Requesting a Love Reading Please


Request a Reading

I feel you are open to new connections. I sense a wariness as well. This is likely to hold you in good stead as you're intelligent and empathic enough to guard yourself from bad influences and recognize insincerity. There is the *right* person out there for you. In the meanwhile focus on making yourself the best you can be and enjoying your life fully. At class, at your employment, whatever you may be doing. I also see an outdoors meeting of some kind, perhaps in the spring.

Seeing Faces When Falling Asleep

I hear voices. Snippets of conversation. That happens when I'm winding down. And in the morning before I get out of bed I will see clear tableaus and/or visions in front of me. Usually three distinct images. Like today's was a peacock, followed by an empty box, followed by two ropes coiled together. I will try to interpret these visions/tableaus if I feel they are important for me or someone else. Otherwise I will let them go.

Empath

Being an empath has taught me to not expect others to be able to read me.

I'm the type of empath that people just approach, wherever I may be, come up to me or stop in front of me - shielding doesn't help either. They look at me blankly for the most part or inquisitively and then begin talking. I may be feeling super tuned in or completely disengaged or anywhere in between. No matter.

When done they walk off. Just go. Take their leave. It's become routine. I take in their energy for awhile but have learned to dissipate or deflect. Also as an empath there is but one person I can tell my feelings to. Even my closest friends will turn off and tune out. I've learned to keep quiet about *me* in front of them. It's almost like it's distasteful for them to hear. I'm supposed to be the strong one. Not the one asking for support. Just giving the support. Always giving. That does wear one out.

The only one who is gaining the ability to *read* me and listens to my rants and understands my peculiarities is my twin flame. And that's taken much time and hard work between us to get to this point.
