I guess it's time to confront what's happening to me


Psychic and Paranormal

I'll just start listing things that happened over the years and try to come to a conclusion, with some help of course. That is why I am posting here.

A few years ago, strange things started happening that I couldn't explain. I noticed some THING would touch my butt on many occasions and when I looked back, nothing was there. The most recent time this happened was 2 years ago, shortly after I moved to Oregon. It used to happen all the time in New York City. I had thought about the prospect of ghosts or spirits being around me, playing tricks but I couldn't move forward because this was an area I had no knowledge on.

One day a couple years ago on my way to my final exam, I was sitting down on a very crowded bus when someone tapped me very hard on my right shoulder. I immediately looked behind me to see a girl looking confused as to why I was gawking at her. I looked around her at the people who were standing up. I knew none of them, and I asked the girl sitting behind me with my eyes to tell me who just tapped me, but, apparently no one on that bus tapped me. So what the hell did I feel?

More recently, I began seeing clear orbs in my line of sight floating across the room. They range in color from white to light blue, I even see black orbs on occasion. My eyes are in perfect health, however, I'm sure everyone sees specks of light every now and then. I gather that is very normal to experience. But I've been seeing them more and more which is leading me to believe they are spirits. Two nights ago, around midnight, I dozed off while watching Netflix and was startled awake by someone slapping me in the face. I was very angry and told whatever it was to screw off and do that to my face, not in secret, where I can't see who it was. After that experience, I am certain I am being harassed by spirits. But what does this mean? Does it mean I am a medium if I can see these orbs, or does it just mean that spirits are bothering me for a reason that I cannot ascertain? Mediums tend to see the physical appearance of spirits, am I right? That is how they are able to tell the living they can see someone they know that the medium wouldn't be able to know without hearing detail or seeing it.

My spiritual journey began here in August of 2010 and I've learned so much about myself, from being an empath, a brother, a prophet, a seer, and now I'm wondering what these spirits and orbs I am seeing means for me. I've tried talking to the orbs and just being receptive to understanding why they are around me or what they want me to know, but like everything else, I get nowhere. I just want the harassment to stop. Tapping me on the shoulder and fondling me is one thing, slapping me out of a deep sleep is taking things to a whole nother level. And if they want help, that's not the way to do it. You have my attention, now what do you want??

I like my name. Jonathan means "Gift of God" or "The Lord is Gracious". I don't think I'm God's gift to the world, of course, but given my life's path, perhaps he intended me to be a gift to the world given all the help I can provide. If I'm remembering correctly, my maternal grandmother told my parents to name me Jonathan.

Absolutely Amazing!


New Age

I have shared on EC in the past brothers whom I met here who I am tethered to in multiple past lives. At the time, I thought that was the most incredible thing to ever happen to me. Re-acquainted with brothers from multiple past lives. Ever since, I have been paying more attention to who feels like what. Paying more attention to the vibes and general feelings I have while I am interacting with certain people.

A year and a half ago, I met this boy about 11 years old at the time who was a student at the classroom that is adjoined to the place where I work. I see a lot of kids come and go but this particular boy grew very close to me, and I him. His name is Jade and we became great friends very fast, and that's all I thought it was. A friendship between me and him. When the semester was over, I was kinda saddened that I didn't get a chance to say goodbye and at the time, I barely remembered his name. I knew it started with a J like mine but I just couldn't remember it. A couple months ago, I got to thinking about him again. he was on my mind for no particular reason. All I thought about was how special this boy was and the bond we had.

To my complete surprise, he was a student again this semester in the same classroom with the same teach and when I opened the classroom door to let everyone in, I was in complete shock to see him. By then, I had remembered his name and shouted JADE!! and gave him the biggest hug. He asked what my name was again and he hugged me back. This time around our bond was growing and he acted much like, what I thought was a younger brother. The entire time, I only paid attention to how he interacted with me, the things he says, how much time he spent around me. He was gravitating toward me for a particular reason and I didn't know what it was but assumed he was a younger brother of mine from a prior lifetime.

I mentioned Jade to my brother Wolf who always informs me of anything he feels or sees when I am discussing someone and in passing, he mentions this boy Jade does not feel like a brother, he feels like a son. He admires you like a son admires his father. After reading that, I couldn't believe my eyes because in essence, I just read that I have reacquainted with my son from another life. Then everything started making complete sense. The way he feels, the way he acts around me. His passion, his admiration. The respect he shows me, the love he shows me, all subconscious to him, but obvious to me. It made complete sense. This boy Jade is my son! It may not be 100% confirmed, but what little acknowledgement I have has completely and totally changed my life. It's only been a couple of days since learning about this and my entire view on life is now different cuz for all intents and purposes, I have a child. One thing this life has shown me is that which I lack in this lifetime is made up for spiritually. I've always wanted brothers growing up and suddenly I found myself with 3 spiritual brothers whose bonds I felt immediately as did they. I have never had romance or a relationship and I lead much of a solitary lifestyle so I already knew at the age of 32, I won't be having children in this life because I didn't really want them. Having kids and a family I think is something we all think about at one time in our lives, but I knew that I would never have it because it's not what I wanted. But I feel like I have been blessed with a child in a whole other way that just floors me cuz the only spiritual bonds I have encountered thus far were brotherly bonds.

This news has completely changed how I view life. As I said, it's unconfirmed, but I have absolutely NO reason whatsoever to doubt anything Wolf tells me about what he feels or sees because he has been right every time. He has yet to be wrong. Jade and I share a passion for Star Trek, so much so that I gave him a handmade starship Voyager model ship I made which I don't do for anyone. I don't give away my art, but his young passion for Trek told me that he would be a better owner for it. Plus I plan to remake the ship someday. We watched Star Trek Voyager together on my phone as he waited for his mom to pick him up after school. Another thing that stood out to me was when class would be in session, he'd come out to use the bathroom then wind up staying with me to chat and when Perry his teacher came in, he would say, "Perry, it's ok. I'm here with Jonny.", as if he had MY permission to not be in class. He doesn't sense any of this. To him, I am just a good friend. But I've been observing his behavior toward me the entire time because I felt something and I know he feels something, he's just not aware of it. Last night, I asked God to please give me confirmation if this is true. If this boy is my son from another life, give me a sign that this is true. As we were watching Trek, he asked me "Do they have an empath?", referencing Deanna Troi's character on Star Trek The Next Generation, which he is very into at the moment. When he asked me that, I took that as a sign because the empath remark inadvertently referenced me being an empath and wondering if he's different like me. I know he's very smart. I get that from him, but otherwise, I don't know.

This is just wild and I had to share my story here. I wanted to tell somebody who would understand all this spiritual stuff that I can't talk about with anyone else.

Why (some) empaths experience social anxiety?


Empath

I had a most embarrassing social anxiety attack on Saturday at a Passover seder. I was sitting among a whole bunch of younger college students I didn't know and the rabbi asked each of us to read from the haggadah and as soon as it was my turn, I was so nervous. I read shakily and I know people wondered what was up with me. The time came again for me to read and although I was a little bit more confident, I still was nervous and read shakily. I hate that I am a slave to anxiety and energy. I felt like a wreck, not to mention, I had a shooting pain in my right armpit that extended way down to my middle fingertip. I didn't know what was happening or why I felt that way, but I was glad to get outta there. I felt so embarrassed.

An empath is one who is sensitive to energy and the emotions of others. We can feel with other people. Empathizing is understanding what someone is feeling perhaps due to having been through it themselves. Everyone can empathize with another person, but not everyone is an empath.

I have never considered myself a messenger of God but I know that I do Angel's work in my community. It's a calling that I feel I must do. I also have charges that come into my life that need my guidance.

You might want to repost this in the Paranormal group or an Angel group if we have one. This topic might get closed.

That tends to happen to me a lot. More often than I realize and I always used to naively think it was a huge coincidence, but nah. I always assumed I was sensing them, but yeah it is precognition in a sense. As a matter of fact, when someone is on my mind a lot lately, when previously I haven't been thinking about them, I know I am about to see them very soon and I am right every time.

Waking up with bumps and bruises


Psychic and Paranormal

Hi Angel!

Thanks for the reply. This is what I know about me and where I possible go to when I project. I'm a guardian. I prefer that over guardian angel cuz that term is so much bigger than I feel I am. Anyway, it's been proven to me on several different occasions that I project to people when I go to sleep and I am keeping them from harm. If this is in fact what is happening, perhaps in keeping others from harm, I am hurting myself. I dunno how. When I awaken, I don't have deja vu of instances, anything that could trigger a memory. I also do this all the time apparently, but I don't know personally how to astral at will. Though that would be a great thing to achieve.

I do wish I know what was happening, where I go, what I see and experience because I have a big feeling it was answer so many of my unanswered questions. I believe this broken foot deal is so crazy. How does someone break a bone and have no memory? I also realized, with the help of my brother, that I may be leaving my body for a few seconds and astralling someplace. It never occurred to me before why I sometimes have no memory of doing something. I was at work one day and talking to my friend and as I was listening to her talk, I was consciously aware of me getting my name tag off the rope it was pinned to, but I have no recollection of putting it on me. As she finished speaking, I looked at my hand as if to see the nametag in my palm and was surprised to see that it wasn't in my hand, but on my chest. Apparently, I had pinned it to my chest but I had no memory of doing it. I told her about it and she said she saw me do it, but I don't remember doing it. So what happened in that 5 seconds it took me to put my name tag on my chest? That tends to happen to me more often than I know.

Waking up with bumps and bruises


Psychic and Paranormal

Every so often, I find out more about my astral form having fun whilst I am fast asleep. And until very recently, I didn't pay attention to the fact that I wake up pretty much beat up with scratches, bruises or body aches and have no idea how I got it.

In July, I broke my left foot. A small stress fracture. However, I have no idea how it happened and I brushed it off as it happening at work where I am scattered or while I was moving to my new residence. But, how does one break a bone and not remember? I remember the night before the pain started, I went to bed on a Friday night just fine and woke up on a Saturday morning in severe pain. A few days ago, I noticed a new bump on my left leg which I have no idea how I got. Again, I can't recall bumping myself this week.

Given that I have been learning more about astral travel and what I do when I am asleep, I think my aches and pains are happening while I am free from my body. But how does that happen exactly? How does my soul encounter bumps and bruises but my physical body which is sound asleep in bed gets the damage? I understand the soul is tethered to the body, but I'd just like more info on it because while it's crazy, it's also intriguing and I'd love to learn more.

This morning when I saw a video my friend had posted on Facebook of him shaving his facial hair, I had deja vu and remembered that I dreamt I was shaving my facing hair. I recall seeing my own face in the mirror with a shaved baby face. Upon remembering the dream, I recalled that I saw my face but wondered if I astralled into my friend's body. If this theory is true and I did astral into him, the last time this happened the opposite occurred. I astralled into a friend's body, but even though I could see his body through my eyes, I could feel that it was my consciousness. I was aware of it all.

The lonely


Empath

So upon moving to Oregon, I met this guy at my sister's work named Seth. Almost immediately, he felt close and I deduced that could mean one thing, he was like me or related to me. He didn't feel like family, but he felt close. He added me on Facebook and we had been FB friends for a little over a year.

He is very attractive and super single. That didn't sit right with me. A guy like him, all the girls must be throwing themselves at him. Then I got to know his personality and he is a huge douchebag which eventually led to my defriending him on Facebook. He can be sharp tongued and tasteless. He makes the occasional sexist comments, so I hear. It just bothered me for so long why a guy like him is single like me. I don't get it. He should be posting about how he went out on a date and how he's a ladies man, but no. Extraordinarily single.

To me in my experiences, that could only mean one thing. He is on a lonely path. But that doesn't excuse his personality. For a long time, I wanted to approach him about what I feel. And although I avoided doing that for fear that I would look crazy, I never stopped thinking he was an empath. He made a very arrogant and super douchebag status about a month ago about him despising people who call in sick to work. And as a person with an illness who is very hardworking, to the point of making myself sicker by not taking it easy, I found his comments to be highly offensive so I immediately defriended him which I had been looking for a reason to do for a long time.

Today I saw him at his job, I was at the pharmacy, quietly waiting to get my meds. I saw an Albertsons employee walk into my periphery and I turned my head to see that it was him. He said hi Jonny and I smiled, nodded and he left. For that split second of our eyes meeting, I saw extreme loneliness. I didn't feel it, but I saw it. And it explained everything. His personality, why he feels he needs to be arrogant and something he's not. He probably would never admit it to anyone he isn't close to. His dad I can see him admitting his loneliness to, but no one else. He's duty bound and that's all he lives for is work. He has a social life, but I get the impression his work means more than any football game, any night out with the girls and boys. It all made sense.

I want to give him a chance, to get to know him. But a year has passed and I do what I always do with new people, try to get to know them and they ignore me. So I didn't need yet one more person in my life or on my Facebook that treated me this way. I doubt he would confront me about deleting him. I do wish we had been friends. I always feel something in people that I wonder if they know themselves. He's very spiritual and optimistic, but extremely arrogant. In my opinion, it's a waste because he has a good heart. But he pushes people away with his personality.

Empath

Based on my life experiences in contrast to my being empathic, I know this is an empath trait. I would rather know why something is happening than to not know why something is happening. It's not that we blame everything on being an empath, it's just that there is a reason why things happen the way they do. There are people out there that go through life forever not knowing anything about themselves. My awareness is much higher now than it was years ago, so when I pick up traits from people, I know it's due to exposure and not because we hear or see things that we may subconsciously use without knowing it.

Empath

An empath knows no limits to what we can and cannot absorb like the sponges we are. Sometime ago, I scared myself silly when I laughed verbatim like this woman on my favorite show Big Brother does. Her laugh is very ultra annoying and to duplicate that unknowingly scared me cuz I didn't know something like that was possible. Like I scanned her traits and picked up something she is known for.

Grammar on the internet is troubling to read because so many people use improper grammar. And this isn't me being a grammar snob, but what I did, which I knew I would never ever in a million trillion years do because it's not how I spell, added another notch to the "OMG" column of I can't believe I just did that. Even on good days, where I may not be tired, low on energy or what have you, I type up an entire paragraph and before I submit it, I proof read and see that I spelled their "there" and too "to". As I said, that's not how I spell. Online or otherwise. However, I am exposed to it everyday and now I'm afraid I've picked up subtle habits of other people. And spelling is so minute. Who would ever think as an empath, you would pick up someone's grammar habits? That's the only explanation I have.

If I can pick up two things such as an annoying laugh and improper grammar usage, it makes me wonder, what else is an empath capable of soaking up over time? When I was new to all this, I was having an identity crisis that my brother Wolf helped me get through cuz I didn't know who I was if I am a person who picks up habits and traits from others. Who am I underneath all that? Will I ever know? I find myself using phrases people from my past have used daily. So even if these people are not my favorite people, I've got a part of them with me always and I DO NOT LIKE THAT.

Now I'm beginning to worry about the future when I grow as an empath and spiritual person. Will I start absorbing sickness and illness from people? To what extent? Will I live with this illness forever or will it eventually fade? I have so many unexplained pains that I deal with. And I'm not a well person by nature. I've got my own issues, but how do I know if it's mine as opposed to someone else's? Right now, my lower right quadrant of my back is in immense pain that came outta nowhere. It's mildly affecting the way I walk. When I walk, I feel it the most. I know my brother deals with back problems that affect his walking and we are connected. I have felt him before. So who knows???

Astral Premonitions


Psychic and Paranormal

Lol yes I do and I try to watch an episode or 5 every night. I was so exhausted when I wrote this. I took a nap and did start to astral but I can't remember any of it. It's the same with dreams, I get deja vu of who I dreamed about, but I can't remember the dream itself. But it's inspiring to know I can do this.

Astral Premonitions


Psychic and Paranormal

So I've always personally identified with the supernatural drama Charmed that ran from 1998-2006. Of all tv shows, it is the only one that feels like home to me and I never knew why until I discovered more about who and what I am. It feels like home because I pretty much have the same life. One cool thing about the show is the powers that the sisters use as witches. There's a character named Phoebe and she's the middle sister. Power wise, I always identified with her because on the show, she's a psychic empath. Her first power was premonitions that she would have when she touched an object. In season 5, her premonitions advanced to the point where she could astral her consciousness into a future event that she was seeing. They were called Astral Premonitions and last night I thought it would be so cool if something like that were real, then I recalled a vision I had many years ago that indeed was an astral premonition. First, here's Phoebe's new ability in action.

Let me explain the dream I had in 2005. I was walking through a parking lot with my girlfriend and I looked down at her while she looked up at me. The people in the dream were not me. Even though I was in the place of Mike, the friend I dreamed about, I was fully aware that this dream had nothing to do with me. So I had gathered that I astral projected into his body as he and her were walking through this parking lot. It was an odd dream I had, but I thought nothing of it until I was on his profile page and saw a picture of the very scene I dreamt. I immediately screencapped it as proof of my vision. This is what I dreamt exactly:

While I was sure it was astral projection, I didn't think it was a vision until I saw this picture so that told me that I dreamed and personally experienced a future event, almost as if I time traveled. Even though it was a vision, I have no idea when this photo was taken. So it could have been a future event or a past event that I personally experienced live and in living color.

Here is the entry of this astounding psychic occurrence that I got to experience. Even though I am having a lot of difficulty with my abilities now, this only shows me what I am capable of as a psychic empath.

126) Thursday, October 13th 2005-Last night I dozed off for a couple hours and quite possibly astral projected. Lately I dont remember much about what I dreamt, but I do remember either walking side by side or being on a date with my girlfriend. Only thing, it was not my girlfriend. I dont have one. It was the girlfriend of a person on Myspace named Mike. He recently got a girlfriend. I did mention to him that he seemed happy lately. Of course that was me sensing happiness from him. Back to the dream, the girl and I were walking side by side through a parking lot. I remember her looking up at me and me looking down at her. This girl, Ashley, is taller than me and shorter than Mike. Im shorter than them both, so thats proof it couldnt have been me in the dream. I was in Mikes body, experiencing his date or time out with his girlfriend.

Thats pretty much what I remember about the dream. I do have a strong feeling it was astral projection, and I think Ill stick with it. Ive always said, when it comes to my dreams I always know whether it was a vision or not. As to if it was, Ill never know.

Yes. We hold light inside us and we are able to recognize the light in others like us. For me, it has turned into a stronger ability where I am able to sense an empath even though TV. I don't meet a lot of empaths in person, so I can't say that I have that experience with meeting someone like I am, but online and on TV I can sense it. I feel it. It's curious though, when i moved to Eugene, OR, everyone seems to feel the same. And that means that they feel somewhat like me. Are they all empaths? Probably not. But I believe it's because Eugene is a very creative and spiritual place and its residents are the same. Compare that to people in NY, NYers do not have this feeling at all.

A very simple question that I struggle with


Empath

I feel my purpose on this earth is to educate those like myself who are NOT in the know about who they are. This comes as a sidebar conversation with them, but not telling them just to tell them, oh hey, you're an empath. But for those who are struggling with their lives, I feel I should step in and spread some light their way, even if it means awakening who they are.

But, what I struggle with is, is it my business to tell them what they are, even if they are living happy lives and I just happen to feel how they feel like me? I have this one friend and, sadly, he is a hot mess. He focuses SO much on all the negative and refuses to see the positive in anything. Every post is SMDH and FML. It's gotten to the point where I just am tired of his constant whining. But, I do care about him enough to want to be there for him and listen to why he feels the way he does and to show him things could be much worse and that he should enjoy life, no matter what you are going through.

He spends so much of his existence being envious and jealous of the luxuries his friends have. Now, I remember the day I was new to Facebook and wanted to add some of my Myspace friends on Facebook. Kevin was a random guy from one of my groups who I wanted to keep close. Of course, back then, I didn't know why I wanted him close to me. Now I do. Even if I feel this is my purpose in this life to help awaken those who are struggling with who they are, is it my business to do that? Do I have the right?

I cannot tell you how many people feel like I do. I observe them like a hawk, watching their behavioral patterns, analyzing their lives. If they are spiritual and happy or if they are lacking in faith and incredibly sad. There's always a contrast between these two types of empaths who I categorize as Spiritually Awakened(May or may not know they are different, but they live an average happy lifestyle and don't focus on the negative) and Lacking in Faith(they don't believe in themselves or see the small blessings in life and only focus on the negative everyday of their lives, they may also be struggling with the feelings they get around people and just don't know how to process it.

Doing Angel's Work(a jumble of information)


Psychic and Paranormal

Thanks for your reply Bill. I wrote a ton so I didn't expect many replies. The rabbi thing was a realization of a potential future of mine. I hated going to temple when I was a kid and learning Hebrew just did not interest me. But that vision I had as well as a personal desire to return to temple and learn Hebrew, etc prompted me to go back and learn as much as I can. Even my rabbi and his wife see that I am enjoying it. I just wonder with my recent return to temple and being on the spiritual and religious path that I am, how much of it will be connected to my future as a prophet.As for my roommate, my desire to tell him about me was due to a feeling I had which told me we were related in some way. He felt like a brother and I mean that in the empath way, he feels like he is related to me in a past life. That feeling is still unconfirmed and I'm sorry our relationship didn't turn out the way I had hoped, but telling him everything was a decision based on how he felt to me. We were extremely close. We had a friendship that I don't get to have with many people. But I will not be so quick to open to anyone else. Telling people who I am isn't really beneficial to me. Yes, it would be great to feel I confided in someone my deep dark secrets, but that won't help me in the end.

Doing Angel's Work(a jumble of information)


Psychic and Paranormal

I've been told some thangs about me that was very hard to believe at first cuz how do you wake up one day and boom, that's your life? But after some years of ignorance, I'm beginning to believe what once was told to me. Maybe there's some truth in it. I'm still unsure.

Where do I begin? On sites like this, you tend to cross paths with people who read you and go into deep history on who you are or were now or in a past life. One of the things that was almost immediately mentioned to me was that I was a guardian angel who has saved lots of people from harm and another thing that was mentioned was I may be a human or fallen angel like the one who was telling me this is who I might be. The human angel stuff I didn't accept cuz it's too vast for my human brain to comprehend. But the guardian angel thing is something that piqued my interest because when I looked back at my life, a lot of what I have done does seem very protective not in a human way. And people who I've been around, one whose life was remarkably reckless but somehow still managed to survive after all these years, it seems like there was a protective spirit around her. Namely me.

Almost two years ago, I began having dreams. Just two, that showed me standing watch over someone. Both dreams I mentioned here on EC. The first dream was revealing because it showed me standing in this person's bedroom watching her read a book, a room I had never been in. So because of my dream, I was able to remember what the room looked like. When this person was not in her room, I took my chance to sneak in and see if it was the room from my dream and it was. So what was that? A vision of some sort? Or was it showing me something else that I may not realize about myself? I believe it was the beginning to discovering the guardian part of me which takes over while I am asleep. I astral while sleeping often and I wake up with no memory of anything. Mind you, that was something this person had told me almost immediately when he was reading me, was that I save people from harm and I never remember it until something triggers that memory.

The second dream I had I mistakenly thought was a vision. I was nervous because I thought I had witnessed a motorcycle accident on some freeway in Oregon and I had no idea if it had already happened or if it was going to happen. But one thing I wasn't paying attention to was the fact that 1) I was standing watch over the guy on the motorcycle and 2) the guy wasn't hurt. He was standing up with his helmet on, but his bike was crashed. This, like the first dream showed me standing watch over someone and I had deduced that maybe these weren't dreams, but memories. My memories being triggered that show me watching over my charges. Some whom I know in my personal life and others who I don't know. That was the last dream I had like that and it's been almost 2 years since the dream.

The person in the first dream was my former landlady. Who, at that point in my life, was someone I considered very negative who I did not wish to be around. The night before she flew back into Oregon from vacation, I had unusually been preoccupied with where she was and why she was not home at the time she informed me she was going to be home. I was worried but not in a normal way. I felt no compassion for this woman, she meant nothing to me because I had developed so much angst for her at that point in my life. But the worry was taking over my focus and I began what seemed like a vigil for her, standing watch to see what time she would come home. It was very odd and I had never had a vigil for someone like that since my alcoholic mother who often would leave the house drunk and not come back for hours.

Then there's my job at MECCA. I am basically a cashier at a nonprofit in Eugene and the comments I get from people throw me off guard because it's so incredibly profound and the comments are more than I should be getting for the job that I do. The people I work with all love me and speak so highly of me, you would think I was someone incredibly important like the Pope, or Jesus, Moses, the President. I'm being serious. From my perspective. I'm just doing a job. Not doing it better than someone else is, I'm just providing service with a smile. Some days I feel like crap and I still get amazing compliments. Just last week, a regular customer mentions to me that she believes it's me who is the force behind the amazing change the store has been through. And I immediately took no credit and said it's all of us volunteers who make the effort to change the store for the better, but she was intently focused on me and could not stop praising me. I smiled, said thank you and moved on.

I make friends everywhere I go, but never have I made the relationships I have made at MECCA. It's much different than anything I have ever seen before. I have followers, people who think highly of me and praise me. It's so much more than friendship and me being me, I wanna know why that is. Something inside me tells me it has nothing to do with me being an empath, but something more they are sensing about me. Quite a few people who I met at MECCA have mentioned that I feel like peace to them and I bring calm to a chaotic environment. One of the newest volunteers who is sickly and wants to get back into physical activity has praised me for being so kind and understanding of his health and said he wanted to take me home with him in a joking sorta way. Day to day, the one time comments, and compliments, and relationships I have with people tell me it is due to a spirit I have inside that they appreciate to be around. It's a protective spirit that goes back to what my soul brother, the one who told me who I was, said that I had inside.

For a long time now, I've been confused, not knowing what I am and if it goes deeper than what I think I know about myself. It's been a long journey and even without help, I seem to be discovering more about who I am and what I am becoming. Day to day, I look up at the sky and say I don't know what I am, who I am or if I am even human, but whatever I am, please let my journey be an easy one. I am also a prophet. Destined to do a job that is "by far bigger than I know". Those were the words told to me by Archangel Gabriel. For 3 years, I've simply thought that my seeing abilities would bloom one day outta nowhere and my destiny would begin, but then my spirituality needed rejuvenation. I needed to get back in touch with my religion to grow closer to God, something I felt I was lacking.

After 3 years, I had returned to synogogue to refresh who I am as a Jew and learn more about myself, learn the Torah and become closer to God in ways I never had before.You'd be surprised how every thing you do in life has a connection to your destiny and what is to come later in life. 3 years ago, I had a vision of God telling me to "Go to thy holy temple and bare thy soul to me." Since that day, I had to struggle with putting my personal feelings about temple aside and go to temple and bare my soul to Him. That day has since come and gone, I returned to temple, bared my soul, but I didn't feel as good as I thought I would. So what's missing? What was that vision about? My soul brother thinks I had a vision of a past life of mine where God told me in another life to go to His holy temple and bare my soul to him. My brother thinks I might be one of Moses' sons Eliazer, which might explain why I have such a passion for the 1950s The Ten Commandments movie which I watch traditionally every Easter. But I think it was God telling me to renew my faith in Him by returning to his holy temple. Whatever that flash was about, it has erupted a new passion within me and that is to go to temple every Saturday and become the Jew that I am meant to be.

When I think of a prophet, I think two things: crazy street babblers and Moses. One thing about numerous biblical prophets is that they were craaazy religious Jews. They knew Torah inside and out and they were all considered Rabbis by their followers, even Jesus which threw me for a loop. Then it hit me. I had an OH SNAP moment that opened up my eyes forever. What if in order for me to become a prophet like I am destined to, my spiritual and religious path needs to awaken to the point where I know Torah inside and out and one day become a Rabbi? Is that what my future is to be? Am I meant to be like Moses and Abraham and all those numerous Jewish biblical prophets of the past? The realization that this could be true is shocking and unnerving. Just a whole bunch of emotions surging at once. I can never see myself as something so profound and important to the world and to my people, the Jews. It's just a path that I am on which I don't know where I will end up. I should mention that at least 3 different times during service, when I was listening to a sermon about prophets of the past or when I was actually holding the Torah, I had a sensation I had had before just above my eyebrows in the middle of my forehead that felt like something was awakening. Just a weird sensation. I had always believed that sensation was my third eye opening up and it only happened on rare occasions. Now, I go back to temple and suddenly it's happening every other weekend? That's no coincidence.

Lastly, I'm about to move for the third and hopefully final time. Last time I was fully active on EC, I had posted about my telling my roommate of what I am which had been weighing heavily on me for so long. Our relationship ended up just like my previous relationship with my former landlady ended up. They got so used to my source of steady income that was feeding their bank accounts that that was all they saw and any respect or courtesy to me was grossly ignored like I didn't exist. So I get to wondering. Is this treatment of me due to me being an empath or is it due to me being something I dunno I am that make them feel so secure and safe around me that they want to exploit me for everything I'm worth? 3 is my lucky number. It follows me everywhere and has been with me all my life and I had no clue. I just hope that this third move will be something much more permanent and I make a friend who actually cares about me and doesn't see me as an ATM. All I can ask myself is what am I why this is the second time I've been so boldly mistreated for months? If I was a human angel or SOMETHING unnatural, is this why the people I live with have always mistreated me? I just have so much in my head, I dunno what's what anymore.

Thanks for reading. This is my supernatural autobiography which I've wanted to share here for a long time. Just didn't know how to approach it. Some things are true, other things are theories, the rest as they say, is history.

My favorite show is Charmed and I think that's for a reason and that reason was subliminal. I've always liked the show, but once I met my 2 soul brothers, one older and one younger, that reason started to become fact. I am Piper Halliwell. Not just because I like her, but because we are so much alike in how we are, what we look for in life, our personalities and mannerisms even down to the destinies of the two of us. Once I got to know my brothers, I realized their personalities were like Prue and Phoebe to a T. So, we're the male versions of the Charmed Ones I guess. Only difference is that was fictional and this is real life. There isn't an episode of Charmed that doesn't relate to my life and my problems somehow. It's very similar in just about every aspect.

How did you know you were an empath?


Empath

For a long time I made it my business to know what kinds of supernatural abilities there were, whether fictional or real. About 12 or so years ago, I had this innate inkling that I was an empath. But back then, I didn't know half as much as I do now. So because I only thought it meant to feel other people's emotions, I thought that maybe I wasn't one since that's not what I was experiencing. But there's so much more to being an empath than feeling emotions. We're energy feelers. Everything is energy and that can come across as emotional energy that may affect us in relation to someone else. Even though I had given up on researching what an empath REALLY was, I still instinctually knew I was an empath. A few years later I did a google search for "Am I an empath?" and I found a bunch of traits which was like reading a book about my life and that then led me here. I think for a good chunk of us, we "know" we're different, but we may not know how different. For me, I knew I was different, but I also knew I was an empath. It was just something inside of me that knew. Some of us can be oblivious to our true natures, others just know.

Are you suppressing your self-expression because you are an empath?


Empath

Yes, definitely. I see and speak the truth in all things. I can be very blunt about how things are, but this is all internal because I censor what I say and how I say it to spare people's feelings. Given how I can say what I am thinking of how I feel, I sometimes am not aware of how I am expressing it. I do not wish to do this because holding back only makes things worse. Even when I am more outspoken and truthful, someone will always find a problem with it.

"You hurt my feelings." "You shouldn't have said what you did the way you said it." "Perhaps this was the wrong time for you to speak your truth."

I've heard it all and I'm quite annoyed by it. Given that I work customer service, I have learned how to assert my authority in a situation where I have a choice of yes or no. I do wish to better myself in this area. Self expression is something I struggle with greatly. I am always in situations where I should speak my peace to let someone know how I feel without them acting like I don't have the right to say anything.

I met my first empath in Oregon


Empath

And we've been friends for over a year!

Since moving here, I've commented before that everyone feels the same out here as opposed to how people feel in NYC. I was able to sense and feel who was different from the rest. I gathered it was different out here because Eugene is a very spiritual and creative city and empaths are very spiritual and creative souls. But even though I was confused, I did have certain inklings on who might be empathic based on their lives, how they speak about themselves, how people treat them, etc.

My friend Riley took me out to lunch yesterday and we got to talking. It was the first time since going to a movie together that we got a chance to just sit and chat. He began telling me about his life and how his brother, grandmother and mother treats him and shockingly, it mirrored my own life. So without revealing why just yet, I asked him some specific questions: Are you an emotional person? Do you feel with others? Before I could even finish my sentence, he said something along the lines of "He has a deep empathy for people." and I said, wow, you finished my sentence. From there, I told him I believe he's an empath and like the previous people all said when I approached them on the same subject, he said he believes he is one too.

As we walked back to my job, he was telling me more about his life growing up and how he was bullied because of his Tourette's Syndrome. I picked up on that when we went to the movie that time. He mentioned he has ticks when he's nervous and apparently hanging out with me for the first time made him very nervous because all through the movie he was making sounds and jerking around. He finally darted out the theater to compose himself and came back 5 mins later. I knew for a while of his condition because I saw a video he posted about on his Facebook, but he never told me directly.

Anyway, he asked me how I knew he was an empath and the biggest reason was that he feels like one and his life story is like many of our life stories. He battles a condition or illness, like me and others here, so intuitively, it was not hard to connect the dots. I let him know that I learned so much about him yesterday and that I am always here to hear more.

Well I like to eat a balance diet of chicken, rice and salad so that my main meal of the day is nutritious. As for exercise, I go through a lot of pain so physical activity is limited. However, I have begun working out again. Tae Bo videos on youtube that get my heart pumping and the sweat dripping. It's a great feeling and it gives me natural energy. I try to be consistent, do this every day, but sometimes life gets in the way, like my art. Or I may not be feeling well and I am in a lot of pain. If I can do this daily as well as eat my chicken, rice and salad(which I love!) daily, then I will be in great physical shape. Got a long way to go though.

On the outside, I don't hold back. As much as I want to be closer with people, I try to even though I am telling myself not to. But on the inside, there's that voice that says this is not meant to be so don't force it. I get by. That's it. The crazy ass world I live in allows the people in my life to call all the shots, ignore me, over talk me, and when I want to do something, when I need to talk, when I want, those same people aren't there for me the way they believe they are in their minds. I'm so tired of the games. I don't try anymore when it comes to relationships. I have my good days when I am happy being me and I want to be around particular humans. Then I have my bad days when I am so distraught over how people treat me daily that I withdraw from them. And if they are disrespectful to me, I withdraw even further. I don't wish to be around people like that, so I go on living my life the best way I can, and that's alone. Unfortunate, but the truth. My truth.

Cautious


Empath

I've been hesitant to post this topic because I don't want anyone to misunderstand what i am saying and take offense. Being that we're beings of light and are essentially beacons to some people, it makes me feel very uncomfortable to be in a city that has a big population of mentally ill people. Prior to moving here, my sister mentioned in passing that Eugene, OR has a lot of mentally ill people everywhere you look and I see that now. What makes me uncomfortable is, it's usually the people who are different that feel like friends and as an empath, I grow close people, different people especially. I just don't want to have people who are unstable gravitate toward me or vice versa and I wind up getting hurt or blind sided by it. I'm not saying those with behavioral or mental disorders are troublesome, I'm simply saying I don't wish to one day be in a situation where I've attracted the wrong person or I could not tell that this person was unstable because I was focused on the fact that they felt like a friend.

I've been blind sided and hurt by a person who I considered a good friend of mine last year. For 3 years, we had a great friendship. She mentioned her mental and emotional problems with me often, but I didn't pay attention to that because she gave me no reason to pay attention to it. Perhaps she was medicated and was stable. But she was also the worst kind of friend. An energy drainer who would vent all her problems to me nonstop for hours without even giving me a moment to speak. I was always there for her. When she needed me, I dropped what I was doing and would be a listening ear for hours. The one day I chose to ignore her call because I was busy with work, she just flips out. Telling me how I'm such a horrible friend and I'm not a true friend because I didn't call her back. Then she started talking very paranoid, saying she couldn't trust me and she knows that I'm a shady person. I had NO idea where all this was coming from considering I was her therapist for a year. I could have told her to vent to someone else, but that's not who I am. But it hit me, and it hit me hard. She often spoke about being bi polar, schizophrenic, and more, but I didn't see that because I saw her, who she was without her mental health issues.

It's not only painful to have someone you called a friend suddenly flip and see you as the enemy, but it's a complete and utter shock that I don't know how to process when it happens. After that moment, I've just been a lot more cautious with whom I am befriending out here. The empath in me will always see a friend, it does not judge on race, gender, sexual orientation, disability or ability. It sees the person. I think it's frighteningly ironic to encounter all sorts of people who feel like friends, but I can't even sense that something may not be right with them until the last minute when it explodes in my face. I just don't want to unknowingly gravitate to someone who is highly unstable and shows no signs of it and they just go off one day for whatever reason which could harm me physically or emotionally. I spent months reeling from the breakup with her and tried to see it logically and understand what just happened. It's not something I wish to go through again is all.

How to get away from all the stimuli


Empath

I feel that as the months go by, I grow stronger spiritually and my light grows brighter. Even though I can't feel it, I see it in how people treat me. Seems practically overnight I've gained more responsibility at work, I'm hearing from people that other people would like to hire me for my services, I get calls from friends who want my help. I can't tell you how many times a day I hear my name being called at work. "Ask Jonny." "Ask Jonny, he can help you." I dunno how it got to be this way. I don't dislike it, but I am vastly overwhelmed by it. I feel like I need to take a break from society weekly. When i give myself time to heal, in the interim, I can't heal because I've got more people reaching out to me. I try to ignore it all but sometimes it doesn't go as planned.

I've discussed here before being treated like a celebrity and it's a lot more obvious to me now. A few days ago, as I walked by, two students were whispering about me. I heard them say "That's Jonny the Toymaker." and when I stopped to tell them that I heard my name, they looked so frightened or in awe. I dunno if it was surprising to them that I stopped to speak to them or what, but for real? Speaking of students, another student from the prior term always looked so scared to look me in the eye and ask for the key to the garbage bins outside. I'm harmless. No one needs to be intimidated by me. I'm actually intimidated by most people so I don't want people to feel this way in my presence.

I can't help but feel like a celebrity because that's how the people treat me. And like most empaths, I don't like attention being drawn to myself. I would rather stay in the shadows and not be noticed. I'm only being myself. I don't pretend to be someone I'm not, but apparently, the me that I am is so liked. On the other hand, the people that treat me horribly and lash out at me are the people with secrets, the ones with darkness inside them. I can't help who I am. I don't always pick up on your inner demons but when I do, it's outta my control. I've been around people that have given me headaches each time I've been in their presence, people who cause me to shake and tremble with fear and those who are just downright intimidating. I dunno why I'm put into situations where I am around these people daily or once in a while but I've never paid attention to how I felt in the past and now is the time to start paying attention to everything, the good and the bad, everything that happens to me when I am around humans.
