Imagine


Empath

While on this site I was introduced to the Alan Watts recordings on YouTube. After listening to several videos I really began to wonder. What if this truly is a game that we all forgot we were playing? What if all people are empaths but only a few of us are awake? This sounds crazy to me. However the more I explore the idea the easier life seem to be getting. Grounding had become instant and it is easier too separate what I feel from all the other energies. For the last two years I've been losing my left hand through to my shoulder. I now have my arm back. What if we began too play pretend ad children and believed in it so strongly that we have manifested the lives and world we now live in?

meaning of sensations during meditation


Empath

I have similar experiences although I understand them in a different way. It has always been my experience that all those things are a sign of being connected and that healing is occurring on the deepest level. After and the vibrations and sounds settle(granted that I let them occur while observing without interpretation) I feel amazing. Younger clearer. Old pains also slowly dissipate. For me pain and discomfort during meditation are good signs. It's like the irritation the body feels when it is sick. We often blame the germs for how we feel when really it is the body's immune system that is causing the pain as it fights off the germs.

Dreams about old man death


Dreams

@hop-daddy you know as I was responding to you somethings clicked for me.
I tried to write a poem about the dream and I could only come up with one line. "Sitting next too death in a dream planning my life a change."
At the time when the dream occurred I had dealt with depression but never had a single suicidal thought in my life. The meditation occurred as I was moving to California. It was here that the suicidal thoughts began. Last year was the worst it ever got. Whilei did not physically try to kill myself I had a detailed plan I could not talk myself out of.

Long story short I ended up I the hospital on a three day hold. But I have to say that event saved me in many ways.
Last year was when I finally realized I was an empath. I've always had gifts, but I've always pushed them to the side. Last year I had to make a choice explore being an empath and see where it takes me. Or ignore iut and let the ignorance slowly kill me.

Now I think I understand why it's on my mind now.

Last year was a 9. And my intuition has been telling me for about as long as I had, had the dream that my freedom would come in a nine. And I feel like I have reach a while new point in my life.

Thank you again.

Dreams about old man death


Dreams

@hop-daddy first I actually want to thank you for some of the post on your page. I was already reading the wisdom of insecurity by Alan Watts but had no idea there were so many recordings of his on YouTube.

As far as the dream it is definitely death and his list. It's never said as no one says anything in the dream. It's an intuition that usually comes with my dreams. If it was a lucid dream it is the most realistic one I have ever had. Usually when I have lucid dreams I know I'm dreaming and can exhibit some amount of control. However in this case I felt like I was waking from sleep but when I opened my eyes i was not in the real world. The only thing I know for sure is that I was just supposed to be an observer. I have never had another meditation like that. In fact it's gotten harder.

But I am going to use some of the ideas from the Watts lecture about letting go and being empty as I meditate and see.

I don't always dream but when I do there is always something to it. Usually I can figure it out pretty quickly but this has me stuck.

I did have issues in the past about dying. But the were never about me. I don't deal with loss very well.

Grounding crystal


Empath

@hop-daddy thanks for the tip. I plan on picking some blue kyanite up when I get home. I haven't tried yet malachite yet, but I'd be interested to see how I like it.
Also very interesting about the salt. I can't wait to try it.
And I carry your stone trifecta along with a few extra personal favorites.

Grounding crystal


Empath

@womanwhowalks yeah that sounds similar to my mom. She overshadowed me so much that when I thought it was in her voice. I was that used to being in her shadow. I am getting better at standing up for myself. We got into an argument because I called her on something she did. When she got really angry I stopped talking. If I had continued she would have dug into me until she got me to scream like her. I felt much better not reacting to her.

Please Take An Empath Poll...


Empath

1. Yes
2. Not as much when I'm doing good with my grounding. However I rarely sleep more than 5 solid hours. I wake up do some things until I'm tired again. Going with the flow allows me to feel more rested.

Dreams about old man death


Dreams

Okay so this is an old dream that keeps popping up in my life in one form or another. It starts with my name on deaths list. Everyone else's name is written in black cursive letters. My name is outlined in a black circle. The letters are the same color as three parchment. This image lingers in my mind for a while. Then my name gets closer until it is all I see. My name disappears and I am sitting in room with air that is golden in color. To my right is a figure covered in a black robe. I saw no face only a big black hood. On the floor there are lots of papers and we are sorting through them, I can't see what is written on them.

During a meditation I was taken to what felt like an all too real version of this dream. I could feel and smell the air. It felt more like astral projection than lucid dreaming.

Allusion to this dream constantly pop up in my life.

Any thoughts?

What is wrong with me?


Empath

Cheshire-cat is correct. You have gotten some great advice. I am a big fan of grounding crystals if you're into that. I am out of town and was feeling drowned by emotions. I bought some great new but I was also in a space with people who knew I was an empath and being able to talk with them freely cleared a lot of that excess energy. For me it's not always about talking to people, but to the right people. I love this site because it give me quick access to an entire community of empath.

I've also been reading this great book designed to help you train and control your empathic nature. If you are interested here is the site.

What am I?


Empath

You sound like an empath to me. Even if you are not it sounds like a lot of the tools empath use for the same problems you are describing.

There is a book I have been reading that you may find helpful. And it's free. It's called the book of storms here is the site:
http://mysilentecho.com/dreamtongue1.htm

Also if you're open to it there are a number of grounding crystals you could wear or carry. Most of the time you know as soon as you pick up a Crystal but some are more subtle.

Black Kyanite
Only when pared w/sardonic
Hemetite
Shungite
Clear quartz

Meditating can be wonderful. There are many different styles. You can choose which works best for you. Guided, quiet sitting, walking in nature, Buddhist, focusing on the breath, mindfulness.

Not knowing about you're an empath or simply being an overloaded empath can cause many mental disorders. So therapy is a useful tool. My therapy focuses on cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral therapy.

Cognitive is about realizing control on the direction of your thought process. Focuses on the the positive because it is just as ever present as the negative. Since for survival we are programmed to spot the negative we will all was see it and it requires no focus. By bring focus to the positive we automatically see both. When we see both we allow ourselves to see with a wise mind.

Empath tend to feel what we focus on.

Dialectical therapy is about learning to live in the moment. As an empath I have found this helpful as this connects one to the body. Most empathic communication comes from the body. Having awareness of what is being taken in allows self care to come more easily.

Hope this was helpful,

Blessings.

Grounding crystal


Empath

@cat-whisperer I also love hemitite. In fact that is what ii went into the store to get. Although I don't have much experience with it. I currently own two rings and am looking for more to keep in my room. I plan on turning my bedroom into a grounding space so that I can release all the access energy in a safe space.

@womanwhowalks this is my first experience with kyanite. I picked it up and felt an immediate difference. I will look into the blue kyanite. When I'm at my worst I tend to lose my words so I do a lot of work with my throat chakra.

As far as the family are concerned the kyanite is really helping. I feel less concerned with the drama and feel like I am back too my happy and fun loving self. Yes things are shake right now but there are always ups and downs to life. I realize I can spend my life focusing on the negative or learn to enjoy the positive.


Thanks ladies for the advice and info.

Grounding crystal


Empath

As we all know/are learning grounding is key for empaths to live a healthy life. Consistent grounding is something I struggle with. As my name suggest I love crystals. The problem I have is that even with proper cleansing I tend to overload my crystals. At the moment I am out of town staying as a house guest with my cousin. In the short time that I have been here I have totaled my car, fought with my mom, and learned some hard facts about my dad. I have been meditating like crazy, however it is hard to get comfortable as none of my family know I am an empath. When they found out I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder they assumed it meant I was crazy.(yes that idea still exist in the world). I found my self still struggling after meditating for an hour. That never happens. So I went down to the one crystal shop I could find and found great relief. Now I know different crystals work for different people. However as far as I am concerned I have found the perfect Crystal for empathic grounding. Black kyanite. This delicate crystal worked instantly. While it can't be kept in the pocket as it is a 3 on the hardness scale, I have a pendant that has become my new favorite. I plan on buying a bunch more. Even now as I sit in a house that is full of overloading energies, I feel the energy actively flowing through my feet into the earth. I feel permanatly rooted. I suggest that every empath go to a Crystal shop and at least pick up a black kyanite stone and see how you like it. I love it.

Constantly exhausted


Empath

I keep a pouch of assorted crystals near my second chakra. I find it helps me process the outside energy much faster. Which in turn soothes my stomach and greatly decreases my fatigue. I also do a grounding meditation with shungite and cerussite. Hold one piece of each in each hand and stand with knees slightly bent. Focus on breathing and try to clear your mind. You will feel a heaviness in the feet and may also experience shaking. The heaviness may hurt the first time as there may be a lot to release.the shaking is good. It is the foreign energy leaving the body. If you feel cold, stop and layer up, your energy is stuck. Keep warm. As you practice more you will feel your body sway This is great! I have experienced empath symptoms for as long as I can remember. This works wonders. My pain is gone, my moods are more reasonable. And I am much more aware of when and whose energy I pick up on.

Empaths and Dreams


Empath

I'm long winded but love this topic. I've learned that meditation where you observe the body, in particular the breath helps the most with understanding dreams and connecting with your spirit. Also I believe our souls are older than most and part of us remembers ancient knowledge that was lost, which is what makes us empaths.

Empaths and Dreams


Empath

I forgot to mention the dreams where someone is talking. I believe those to also be spirits. Sometimes if I am out of town sleepping in a strange place that happens. It also happens when I am working on a new project. Some can be guides and protectors. Others can be harmful. Well I should say scary because if you strengthen your mind while in the dream you will come out unharmed. As an empath dreaming can be wonderful and it is easier to truly connect with you inner power.

Empaths and Dreams


Empath

Hey tigerlily.

I go through different stages of dreaming and not dreaming. I notice that the more consistent my meditations are the more easily I remember my dreams. I have had premonition dreams, been visited by deceased and even dying relatives and experience astral projection during dreams.

I'm not sure if it is that we dream more. I know people who are not empath who have had similar types of dreams. I believe we live more with greater acceptance of universal truth. The universe, hot, budget, Tao, or whatever you call it speaks to everyone. Of course not everyone listens. There is something in the empath that makes us seekers of what is true. Maybe it is our attempt to survive in a world that is not truly accepting of us.
I've also done meditations where it seems my physical being has been transported to a dream while awake. Leading me to believe that reality is infinite and our dreams are just how we get to other worlds, o ther layers of reality.

I find people who don't dream trapped in this reality. I have also noticed that they do not heal as they should and their souls seem to be the youngest.

At least that is my take on dreams.
