Holiday groups


Empath

Well Christmas is coming yet again. The holidays, where everyone related to you pushes and pushes for you to come visit but every gathering is full of people. Being in a room full of family that don't all get along is worse then a group of strangers. I pick on on things from everyone and it all gets jumbled together but with a family that doesn't get alongI see alot of chatting and smiles butI feel the current of animosity coming from more then one person. When it is the same emotion from multiple people I get a big dose all at once, horrid feeling. I love buying presents for everyone but I cannot stand all the get togethers, they make me dread the holidays. My inability to block or cope with it always leads to a bad christmas and some sort of outburst from me because I just can't take all the feelings flooding into me. I am not good at putting on a mask like so many do, my face shows exactly what I am feeling most of the time so everyone knows. I pick up so much from being hsp and empath at the same time that some christmases are just unbearable.

I was wondering how others might handle this?I am trying to get shielding to work but no luck so far especially in that sort of situation. I need some coping strategies.

We do have a group that might be able to help. http://empathcommunity.eliselebeau.com/group/teacherempaths

You might be able to find a guide at religous events/meetings. If you look for one that is the same or similar to what you believe. Hope that helps. :)

Maybe higher frequency crystals would work, like citrine or something. I am new to astrology so I wouldn't have even thought to check something like this. If anyone has some crystal suggestions that would be great. I normally use black tourmaline and blue calcite maybe I should switch during the retrograde?

Crowds


Empath

I much prefer online shopping. I can spend more time thinking about what I want and have stores from all over the world at my fingertips without anyone elses emotions flooding me while I shop. I am working on grounding and shielding too but I have never been very good at visualizing so it is slow work.

A person can get a kind of addiction to an emotion. If you feel it alot youcanget used to it. Once you are used tothe emotionit willfeel comfortable so you keep going back. That is what I was told anyways. I had forgotten how to be happy but I am finally starting to get there. We tend to pick up on the negative emotions more strongly than the positive, not sure why that is but for me I notice it alot. I can't feel happy people as well as I can feel the emotionally negative people but then the happy people wouldn't really need me where as the unhappy people would.

Is this a general empath thing?


Empath

I have always put others first. I have had to learn to be a bit selfish because I can't help others if I don't take care of myself as well. I ended up totally burnt out trying to care for everyone except me so now I have to take care of me too or I have nothing left to give.

Blanking out


Empath

I have trouble working outside of my home too. I'm not much of a people person and I would end up in tears everytime something went wrong. Have you tried black tourmaline? I wear a pendant most days that has black tourmaline for shielding and a small piece of blue calcite to sooth raw nerves. My nerves tend to be raw alot.

Embracing what you are


Psychic and Paranormal

I have that problem too. When you try to let someone get to know the real you they end up running away because they can't understand. Yet at the same time I think most of us long to have at least one person in the world that accepts all of who we are and knows even the deep inner us. I do have my hubby who is very supportive and no matter what I tell him he doesn't run or look at me like I have two heads all of the sudden. But he is an empath too so that helps. I haven't told many people about my weird side but everyone else has run if I theystart toknow me too well or I say too much. That is why I love it here.The only place in the world where there are so manylike me that I am no longer weird. I feel like I fit in and finally there are people who understand me even if we can't meet face to face.If you feel hewill understand then go for it. With his mom being a wiccan I'm sure he is used to weird and unusualmaybe even supernatural. I would imagine he could understand better then the average "normal" person at least. Good Luck, I hope it works out for you. : )

The pain


Empath

It occured to me that maybe you could go for a massage if you think that might help your need for a "hug". It ishuman touchjust in a different form.Something like that might help tide you over until you find a good friend and also provide a bit of stress relief. Hope that helps : )

The pain


Empath

We are here for you and we understand. I was tagged as a drama queen and no one realized that what seemed blown out of proportion was how I actually experienced it. I don't have a friend right now either except people on here and some of that is because most people thatI meet I really don't want to be friends with. I would rather have one really good friend then a whole bunch of crappy ones. The pain and loneliness, I think, is from the curse side of being an empath. We understand everyone but they can't understand us. I dont have any suggestions but I feel the same way. Most people just run from my strangeness.

Seriously depressed and struggling


Empath

It feels like people will only allow us to listen. When I need to vent or need help there is no one around. I have been there through so many peoples problems but when the tables turn and I need them they run and never come back. I have cut out alot of people that were only around to use me and when I looked around no one was left. Most people I have met I wouldn't want as a friend and I sure don't want to be friends with someone who doesn't care in return. I too suffer from daily allergies. I have been depressed for a coupledecades now, sometimes mild sometimes severe. I have read many books on depression and it seems the best way is to work on changing how you think to more positive. I do have a problem with negative thinking but it is hard not to when the world keeps sending more then we can deal with. I have tried numerous antidepressants which didn't do anything I could feel. My whole family was depressive yet my mother told me I was lying when I told her I was seriously depressed as a teen. I even had a teen magazine depression quiz to show her the checklist of symptoms that I had. When I was suicidal for a while she would only give me 5min of her time and no help whatsoever.

I know how you feel. Just remember that things change and you won't always feel like this. It can get better just hang in there.

I do not likepictures either. My mom was always trying to dress me up and take photos.Also most pictures of me don't come out well and that really doesn't help. No onehas been able toreally capture me in a photo, it never looks like how I naturally am. If that makes sense.

Is being overwhelmed a normal issue for Empaths?


Empath

Commercials bug me. The constant repetition, using sex to sell anything and everything, knowing those people don't believe what they are saying. The actors are so fake and unbelievable. I like the commercials that have a real and sincere owner whoreally believes in his/her business. I judge products by the product not the name on the package or how well the commercial lured me in. I don't like the greed either, companies making one tiny change(usually not to our benefit)and raising the price to make even moremoney.But that is just my 2 cents, I don't care for the media much.

Empath

I think you are a highly sensitive person as well as empath. Hsp for short. I know I am. I can smell things more then others can, I can hear things others can't sometimes. I also have sensitive eyes, there is one house I pass on the way to my grandmas.I cannot look at this house because it is way too bright. It is an ugly orangish yellow that feels like someone just stuck a flashlight in my face. Way too bright to look at and the color is just disgusting to me. Not fun having strong sense sometimes.

I could really use some distance healing. I have had stomach problems for years and for some reason I cannot get a doctor to listen to me and look into it. There might be more wrong as I am so tired every day, all day. I have been sleeping 10 hours a night lately and still extremelytired(I feel tired if I get 7-8 hours as well). So if anyone has a moment, please send some healing vibrations my way.

My dad taught himself to play guitar, drums and keyboard but unfortunately he never taught me any. I bought a guitar and started to learn but I think I am starting to get arthritis in my hands because they cramp when I try to grip things so that put a stop to my learning. All I have is my voice to participate in the song. Though ever since I was a kid I have learned the vocals of songs and copied the artists exactly in how they sing the song, making my voice do what theirs can as much as I could. I like most genres of music as long as you can hear and understand the words. I can't stand bands like AC/DC that don't sing about anything with meaning. I think my favorite songs are ones that are trying to change the world or open peoples eyes to things that matter.

What's you culture?


Empath

I don't know that it is that strong for me, I don't feel that I should be there. I don't feel as though I was there either. I more feel I belong in a place with horses for vehicles and more physical work rather than mental stress like in the past here. Canada can be overwhelming in present times. Too busy and rushed for me. For travel I am most drawn to places like france, italy, ireland, etc to see how they're lives differ from mine. I am not drawn to tourist resorts or landmarks like alot of people.

I love music. I like to go on the emotion ride of a song that someone poured their heart and soul into. I can tell if the singer is actually feeling the words or just singing them, if you know what I mean. I prefer songs that the artist wrote about their own experience rather then the prewritten and tailored to what people like. I like to feel what they felt when they were singing the song.

Personally I do not remember any past life memories that I am aware of. I do have this feeling that I would be or was more comfortable and happier living in the past. I can read minds as well and being hsp I pick up on extra details. Hopefully that will help as he gets older too. He is the youngest of 4 so I will have some teenager practice before he gets there thankfully. Thank you for the insight, I definately have some pondering and research to do.

Evolving Children


New Age

I have used my intuition alot with him. That does sound a bit like him though he is only 5 yet so time will tell. He loves collecting information on all sorts of things. I don't mind teaching him through talking because he listens to me and retains the information about all sorts of things. We were on a walk one day and he learned about animal poop, lol. He was very interested in how to tell which was from what animal. He is interested in all things plant and animal. I have had my kids tell me things when they were really young like "When I was a mom...etc" I assumed they were pretending and didn't really listen, I wish I would have paid more attention but I had no idea then that they might be remembering something. I passed it off as a three year old telling stories, which it could have been but you never know.

Evolving Children


New Age

I have been coming across write ups and videos lately about how some children are being born remembering their past life and retaining previous life knowledge. I am curious about this because of my youngest son. He was born aware. He was later to talk because I could easily read his needs and wants. I had to pretend not to for a while just to get him to see that talking helped in life. His eyes and expressions made me think he already knew about the world and understood. When he first started to smile it was funny. If I had company over and someone told an adult joke he would look at them with a knowing in his eyes and laugh with the adults (and this happened every time). He has fought me since day one about every need I had to meet for him. I could hardly change his diapers or feed him because he would kick me away or put his limbs opposite of where I needed them. He is 5 now and still fights me when I try to meet his needs. He is very smart and a fast learner but you have to show him why he needs to learn something and how it benefits him before he will.

I never believed in reincarnation until he was born. I can't find any other explaination. He has retained past knowledge and used it to get ahead of the game. He understands things better then his older siblings, they seem like they are walking around in a dream world mostly. Maybe it just appears that way because he is advanced but I don't have to keep repeating and reminding him like I do with the others. It is weird that I have been able to give him 3 step directions since he was 2 or 3 and the others I have to go step by step and repeat. Like go into the kitchen, get a cup from the cupboard, fill it up. All the older kids would/will get stuck on step 2 or 3 and stop. It is really hard to explain what I see and feel from him.

Does anyone else have a child that seems aware?

Empath

I have been noticing something odd lately. When I go to put down something, like my coffee mug, it slides about a cm following my hand. I don't think it is me bumping it because when I pull my hand away I don't touch it again but it will move. Very strange and it is happening every few days approximately. Mostly this happens only with cups that I have been using for a while that day and not with dishes that others were using.Has anyone else had this happen? My hand acts like a mild magnet, lol.
