Superheroes?


Empath

Underdog always.. I found, Chris, that when I first came in I did feel the way you describe.. It was all new and it made sense and I felt like a whole person. I felt like I could make a difference in ways I had never considered. The all of the responsibility weighs in. Working through it can be difficult but there are rewards to it too.

I would rather feel than feel nothing at all? I guess that is what I decided after playing the "maybe I'll hide and wait this one out" game... but early on I had a woman send me a picture that said.. "Be who you were born to be"... and it was then I knew I could no longer exist and blend.

People that feel so much and influenced by what they feel can truly help to make others whole.. recognize & acknowledge who they are. Teaching and learning how to love unconditionally and do show others one doesn't always do things expecting anything in return ~ but we can hope to gain good people in our lives from it.

Wow.. went off on a sidetrack there.. is that terrets again?

Peace,

Here We Go Again....


New Age

I have not had television for a while.. and happier for it.

I enjoy cooking this time of year and making gifts to give.. I don't appreciate or buy in to all of the rest of what comes with it.. it changes the feeling of what I want my kids to remember about this time of year. The importance of family and giving your time to show others you think of them. We do this all year but we like the light parade and seeing family.

I had one like this when I was younger. I would fly to the moon.. which happened to be a room full of computers. I would work there.. and looking back on it I have to laugh because it was on the dreadful dos based system with the green screen.

This is a difficult place to be. It is going to sound strange possibly but I had to make light of my gifts at times and joke about it sometimes. It helps to embrace it and be yourself but you also have to find balance and function the best you can in everyday life. Giving yourself tools to do this is important to move forward. I read the materials provided here such as the survival guide. I did some of the quizzes for fun to just explore and learn about me. You might be surprised by how much it can help.

Allowing yourself to open up in this way is difficult but this would happen eventually. Try to use the tools available and understand how these things can help you in everyday life rather than hold you back.

You are in my thoughts and I hope you can find the strength to shine as you are meant to!

Since I Opened My Heart More....


Empath

I remember being 23. You have been through so much and I can relate on some level to what that is like. I had to go through the low to find truth. The truth is, I really did need to shed many people in my life that were toxic to me and I needed to find and love who I was. It was one of the tougher things for me to do and it is lonely. I do want you to know that taking care of yourself is important. I feel like a broken record but I had to change so many things! Music was the biggest one for me but I did start to dress differently and also... jobs. I had to start new in these ways in order to push past that place. I had to give myself a chance and opportunity to be happy. I am not saying these things will work for you but I did feel like I needed to share that with you. You could just do it for a day or two and see how it goes. Just change it up.. this includes meeting new people. Taking the opportunity to listen to the wisdom of some around you that you might not have noticed before. Healing took me some time but I fought the negative self talk and beating myself up. I tried to read what would lift me up. If it made things worse I would stop doing it. You need to listen to yourself and find a way to throw out the toxic pieces one at a time. And yes, for a time the sensitivity was heightened. You could call on guides to help you through it. All I could do was breath, ground, and shield for a little while. Lots of rest and good nutrition helped too.

A New Beginning has Started


New Age

Paul do you remember your dreams? I want to say you do but I am curious.

Since I was young I have reoccurring dreams. They do not stop until I figure out what I am supposed to do. Each time I enter I pay closer attention to details and when I figure it out they will stop. I have had several different ones over the years.

This discussion has peaked my interest as to what exactly I am doing when I am having these. I remember them and I can change them, etc. One of them I had to wake myself up about 10 times.. each time thinking I was awake and then I would notice something (I seem to notice clocks, objects, and constant random "chores"), until I finally woke up.

One is a place with which I am familiar but I always notice the moon, and a planet comparable in size in the sky with it. When I was a girl I would hop on the swing and try to touch it. This particular one shifted through the years.

Three O'clock is an active time for me too.

I have experienced in more than one place. I too had to look into the history to validate. One of them turned out to be a girl who's life was taken in the house. She was a sheep herders daughter that caught the eye of one of the hands. He ended up taking her life in what is described as "If I can't have her no one can". She was 16. When my family moved in it was apparent that she was fascinated the electricity and the toilet among other things. I did see her peeking through the door on more than one occasion and could sense her stronger at certain times. It helped to know her name to understand how to help. It was heavy but her life was taken tragically and it began to make sense.

The great thing for you is that the papers back then were not "politically correct". You can usually find very direct information that will give details you would not necessarily find today.

Best of luck in your search!

I keep having dreams about writing a book and exchanging with others. I know some that have expressed their own need to tell their story. I think I would be neat to have a book full of experiences that others could relate to. How invaluable that would have been for me years ago! This site did that for me in many ways so I can see the importance :)

Yeah.. I did that for a long time.. at a point in time it was just necessary for me to do. A time and place for everything to happen. The important thing is you recognize it and are working through it. When I stopped taking everything so personally it helped tremendously. I had to step back and go back to when I was young just to figure out what was going on!! You also have to remember that everyone evolves at different times. I didn't judge so much as decide being around this person or that person was not good for me. I would also throw out that I hope they could find happiness one day and regardless of how they treated me. Don't get me wrong.. some people are just mean. Everyone sees the world in their own way. What I see as being mean and horrible might be commonplace.. does it make it right?? Not to me.. but throwing light to those people is the best I can do for them now. Try to live each day as I believe to be the right way for me. Be true and listen to you.. the hard part for me was figuring out what really is me and what does not affect me or what should not. Everyone has their path.. guard your thoughts and learn to control your own self. If you don't someone else will do it.

Longtime lurker, first time poster


Empath

Welcome to the EC :)

I can certainly understand what you are going through. I was living my life wondering what was wrong with me when someone had to practically scream out to me what I am. I wasn't sure what they meant and soon after found this community. The more I read and listened the more it all made sense... still making connections a couple of years later.

It can be baffling at how long we go without realizing. I can only now start to understand the impact that my environment had on my ability to see.. and there is good and bad there. Fortunately for me I have a couple of people who accept me no matter.

Take advantage of resources and find what resonates with you!

Onward and Upward!!

Welcome.

What interests you about Empaths?

Just curious.. many here are trying to turn it down to function. Some want to turn it up so they feel as they once did.. and some have other gifts that tend to be associated with it. Balance is what most want to gain that I have met. There are good materials to better put into words the answers you seek.

I was not in search of this site so much as it found me. It was a question after people told me what I was.. what a hoot. Not much for labels here, but there are some great people that are full of knowledge or excellent sources of it. I have found refuge in the places less traveled.

Oh yeah.. and don't miss an opportunity to laugh out loud! When is the last time you just stepped outside and spun in circles until you were so dizzy you couldn't stand up?

The stray animals would always follow me home and It was imperative for them feel safe and feed them. I just couldn't bear seeing an animal suffering or not having a home or a warm place to sleep. I was the only one that could get away with it. My parents knew I had an attachment to animals and they let me have that my whole life. I still have that too!

Reconnect with yourself yes?!

Have a good day!

I often wish I had that back from when I was young... before I realized I was different. I think for me I was jaded when I realized. The awe of it all. Then you get hit with the social rules and bam..

I remember going out and just feeling the wind.. I would spend most of the day outside digging in dirt or exploring next to the house. I remember searching for pretty rocks.. all of these things I still do! Stay in touch with that child inside. It is uncomplicated and for me it is where the answers are. To be in awe of everything and how important everything is for balance. You know.. the things we forget when we grow up and get smart ;)

Groups can be tough. I have many jokes about being introverted but my favorite is.. "Introverts Unite.. together in your own home!". I am like a sponge that absorbs everything around me. I eventually pulled away from nearly everyone because it was just easier to cope. I have few guests and if I do it is short and sweet.

My home is my safe haven and I am careful to who I let in here. I have few I trust. I had to go through a very low point to understand who I am... and I had to reach deep to figure out why I am who I am. I think once I was comfortable with me and accepted MYSELF, it no longer matters what anyone else thinks. What matters is what you think of you. When you reach that place where you face yourself.. it can be pretty heavy.

I had to change small things like the music I listened to. Something that I had no association with from my past. Sounds ignorant but it worked for me. I had to take time to be in quiet places and avoid negative self talk because it only attracted more outside negative people.

No one is perfect .. but the only question I had at that low point was "Who do I want to be tomorrow". Sometimes visualizing what you want from your life or the type of person you want to be helps to take the small steps to achieve it. Had to move through it.

There are people here that understand that low place. Empaths often talk about mirrors or feeling like you mirror people. Some people avoid those low places because they can't bear to feel it themselves, and really don't want to be pushed away for doing it either. It's not that they do not care.. and it's not that they do not wish they could help. But there is help when you try to help yourself and there are people that have been there.

Gin has brought up Citrine before and I know from her knowledge of the crystals she has that could really help. What have you got to loose?

I got overwhelmed too.. and I just could not stop for a while. It is good to start with the survival guide and move from there. Research is great but I personally had to back up after overload and focus on specific issues that affected me today. I found what resonated with me and tried to build from there. Once you can find what resonates with you, you will know how you can apply it. Start with what you know and the connections will come. :) Meditation was important for me at a certain point in order to know where to go next. The doors that need opened will, and the ones that come next will be in place when it is time. I hope I am not confusing you here, and though it may not make sense it is the best I can do today :) Breathe!! and Proceed..

Being a party pooper


Empath

Sometimes you tell the white one. You know which one I mean.. the lie. Especially if it is important to her.

THEN you find another dye type and get excited about it. Maybe she will like the idea when you are doing it together. There are many natural dyes one can use in the hair. I worked with someone that used only natural products to die her hair and she looked amazing. Plus it did not damage her hair.

Sometimes we have to find another solution and present it in such a way that will get them interested too.

I have had to just express that I don't like the dye because it isn't good for them and I don't care to breath the chemicals either. I can relate to your feelings on this subject.

I started turning a silver white color at 20. Most the women in the family are blonde so it isn't as in your face. Mine was golden light brown when younger.. darker brown with red and gold when a teenager, and now it is softer brown with gold and white sprouts :). Not that you wanted to know that but some are comfortable with that, and some will fight it until the end.

What I would like to try are some good natural ones. Maybe the two of you could do that together. It might even be good bonding time. It's goddess night and sister is invited!

Have you been to this one?

I get along with older people too! I guess it is no surprise right! When I read the beginning of your post I saw something that is not there now (because I am crazy you see). I could see you turning to someone and *pshh*. I do not fit in either, though I try to find ways to experience what I need to and try to make the best of the time I have.

I always felt like someone was coming to pick me up. I was told when I was younger I would talk about people in the old photos. I know one time I did look up when talking about one of my family members when I realized the house was completely silent. Nothing better than that to make you feel like you are in the wrong place at the wrong time!

Hang in there! When one door closes another one opens.. the hard part is being strong enough to let everything from the past go and move through the door. I am sorry you had to go through this and I hope you can take the lessons and use them in the future without hardening your heart. It's easy to get angry and put up walls, I've done it! I have had to work through so much of that just to be able to think about moving forward! It's hard to give so much of yourself only to have it used up and tossed back. I hope you can find that you are better off and move forward. Hard to do, but true.

You don't need to beat them over the head. When they are ready to hear you they will. It is hard to wait for that but try to focus more on your self awareness.

It's hard to go through life feeling like you are so different. I have felt it since very young. I put on camouflage and went on. It is difficult to know where you fit in. I think the trick here is you shouldn't try to fit in. Once you are comfortable with you all of a sudden you are a beacon. Once you are comfortable no one can make you feel different. I think for me the biggest struggle was knowing who I am and having a "primer" so to speak. When so many feelings impact my daily life I just have to remember who I am and where I am going. It reminds me to be calm and let all of the feelings flow through me and not hang on to it. The Survival Program is good to read and others have techniques that have worked for them. It will help you to discover what works for you. There is a strong support here and you should take advantage of it. There is a venting group too! :)

You can do it, and yes, others can relate to your feelings and the alone that you describe.

Hang in there!

I love to go into the mountains.. find a stream to feel the water on my feet and hear it running. Of course rock hunting is always involved ~ and just smelling the fresh air.. close my eyes and feel the wind rushing through the trees and blowing my hair. All of the senses go into overdrive yet my mind is clear and open. Sounds silly but it is the time when I am most content. I can sort out all of the complexities and get back to the basics of who I am. I can connect so deeply with everything around me, and get away from the race filled with distraction. I look forward to that more than anything else. My strength grows and I gain a renewed hope and purpose. Gotta love it. :)

I was just a happy little girl and all of a sudden "BOOM".. I realize that I cannot relate to anyone around me. I got really quiet and started to observe everything because I was now uncomfortable to speak what I was thinking. I spent most of my life doing that. It was hard for me to accept that I was not like everyone else. What I found heartbreaking.. everyone else laughed at. I was closer to animals than people...

In adulthood I finally found the few I could talk to and who accepted me even though they didn't necessarily get it. I finally found this site after a non Empath finally had to confront me and just say it. Of course I did not understand what an Empath was. After a simple search of Empath, I found myself here.

I have had the pleasure of meeting some great individuals here! So different yet united in a commonality. After a time, I realized my experiences were essential for me to be who I am and grow more than I could imagine possible. I began to see beauty again.. in everything. Even in dark times I strive to find that lesson or that one good thing. It has been awesome to get to know everyone here and I hope you take the opportunity to explore who you are and how you can benefit from being unique.

Welcome to the EC! DoorMA49 is right.. Empath Survival Program is a good place to start :)

Listening to My Heart/Confusion


Empath

Lizz- I have to say it is so easy to do when you allow it to. I am coming out of that place where I feel betrayed almost! It is so hard to sort out feelings when the connection feels strong.

Real Faction- So many can relate to what you are going through. It is easy to allow someone to inspire you, but you really should consider cutting that cord. All that you have created came from YOU! You may have a muse or inspiration from another person but it was you. It is still too close. While I wish I could say something that will make it better.. I can't. I can tell you that many artists also convey that in their art, and many can identify with it.

People can be hurtful even if it is not what was intended. They also have a path they must be true to and it unfortunately does not always work out how the other person would like. I hope you find a calm and gain understanding about yourself and where you would like to be.

I guess I resonate so strongly that I feel I must repeat myself. You need some time to do something for you.

Look to the light and choose one thing you are grateful for today.

Being here at that time in my life was huge for me so I hope it helps you plus some.

I realize you are not inspired right now.. but I hope you are writing all of your feelings on paper. It's so easy to start questioning yourself when you reach the harder places in life. For me, there were a few times I felt a person's heart for someone else while sending me strange signals. You can have a muse but you also need to find that in yourself. Listen to music you have never listened to before. I had to change all music so it was not associated with my X. Do something you have never done before!~Point is not to get stuck too long. You still have life to live and sitting around waiting will not help you. Pick yourself up.. and do something just for you. Sometimes you find that spark in yourself..and it is usually easier to see when it is darkest.

I hope for you comfort and clarity,

Welcome to EC lizw47!

When I came in it was like the greatest day. All of a sudden the light switch went on and I started to emerge from my hiding space. Once I could open up (and connect the dots) the floodgates opened. I was not prepared for what was coming at all! I will say that the Survival Guide is what helped me when I came in. It is such a relief to be in a comfortable place where you can learn and grow.

Everyone is different as far as honed ability, but I would start joining groups and asking questions! There are many book suggestions floating around depending on the direction you are pulled. Trust yourself!

When I was younger I doodled all the time. My mom saved a few of them to show me when I was older.. I must have been 4 or 5. She showed it to me and I just lost my breath. I had drawn an Indian Chief. She told me that she had to keep it for me. I don't know what ever happened to it along with many others that I did. I still doodle and many of the shapes and symbols come out when I am bored mostly. I am guilty of the doodling.

Claim your space and find words that can allow you to be you. Many times I found myself simply not talking because you get those looks.. and the comments "your'e weird". It was easier to become a comedian and make others laugh because it was a way that I could be with others. When people laugh I do and connecting helped me.

I found that changing the words I use also helped me. This made me take a hard look at me and how I interact with the world. Changing the world around us starts with self. How you approach topics, what you say.. I struggle as much as what you are all describing, but you will find your niche and your way to "feel like you" when you are out with people. Another question to ponder is are they the right people? You pick up on people around you so it could be you need to pay closer attention to that.

Sometimes we build walls up and hold ourselves captive. It is a comfortable place but I realize it is not healthy. Balance is key. You need time for you and you also need time with others.

At least this website is here right?! Always revisit the Empath Survival Guide and Tools posted! Getting back to basics is never a bad thing... at least in my opinion.

At different stages of life you will experience a dormant feeling. Could it be though, that you have reached a place where you have found balance? Are you doing it now without even knowing it because now you are equipped to do so? I think that many times for those of us who feel so much it is not a common place ;) If this is true it could seem to be abnormal. Do not dismay.. breathe and know that many of us have experienced this. If you are in a good place I say allow yourself to experience it and smile :) Peace be with you Net Net.
