Best Stone for healing from abuse???
Tools for Empaths

I have times where it feels like my empathy went out the window. Sometimes it is so strong and sometimes it feels like it is off. I have telepathy too. I am a strong sender and receiver. Though I seem to send the best when I am trying not to send to someone rather then when I strongly try to send to them, lol.
I know how you feel. I feel like I I have bad karma this life. Luck does not like to come my way. Things are getting better for me though. I still have very bad luck but I am turning things around. Not all men are like that. There are some out there that will let you just be you and still love you. Right now though you need to think about you and what you need. Have a bubble bath with a book or take a walk somewhere peaceful, whatever it is that you love to do. Pamper and love yourself. You don't need him to care about you. If he took over so much that you don't know what you like anymore then explore and find out what you do like. Put your energy into taking care of you right now instead of someone else. I would recommend a bit less time with people who stress you out and more time finding what makes you happy. Meditation might help you work out some of the areas that are bothering you as well. You can get through this and it can get better, I know. I wish you good luck and welcome to EC.
You can visualize what ever you are comfortable with for protection. Rose quartz is good for a gentle healing of heart issues. I do feel I need protection personally. I have a person from my past that keeps attacking me mentally and trying to get back in my life. I can feel when he is planning something and I send stay away thoughts back. He doesn't stop, however he can get through he will from hacking me to phoning, etc. I do not have any love to send him or I might try that. If I could conquer my fears with love that would be nice but I haven't been able to achieve that. That is something to ponder again though Peter, thanks for the input.
Welcome to EC, William. Myself, and a lot of others on here, like to wear black tourmaline for psychic protection. Black stones are good for grounding as well. I read that fluorite is a good empath stone,http://dragonmoon.ca/en/fluorite-rough-16145?search=fluorite That link is where I read it. Citrine is a good negativity cleanser. Quartz is another good one as it amplifies other stones and is a good general healing stone.
I used to do that but then when I would get ready for bed I would forget about them and they would all hit the floor, lol. Now I prefer to buy them as a pendant since I don't usually have pockets. Though I am disappointed, my fluorite pendant arrived and I'm pretty sure it is plastic it sure feels like it. Hopefully it is just coated in something to keep it in the holder.
I have read that fluorite is good for empaths in that it helps them not to absorb so much from others. I have a fluorite pendant coming so I will have to try that out when it gets here. Lots of people on EC are partial to black tourmaline as a protective stone. It helps if you narrow down what you want from a crystal in order to know which might be a good one for you. There are just so many with so many benefits.
I don't have any references to list off hand but I have read that they work because they all have a different vibration. That vibration works with our own energy field and helps change it. I was very skeptical at first too. So I decided to buy a few and start a crystal experiment. I have tried with my family and friends and everyone says they work. Now they are passing the words around to others too. Which is funny because I live in an area that is mostly farming and very behind the times. People around here are not very accepting of "new age" ideas.
My husband was having problems with a grouchy coworker bringing him down all the time so I handed him a rutilated quartz to put in his pocket. Well, every day that he remembers the crystal this coworker will chat with him and be more friendly. We use fluorite for pain too. The kids like it for their owwies. That is a crystal that you can feel right away. I had a sore shoulder and held my fluorite on it for about 10 minutes. If I dug my finger in I could still feel a bit of a tender spot but the area felt like the nerves were numbed. Everyone who has tried a crystal that I have suggested has reported back good results, unless they didn't fit with that crystal. I did give my husband a citrine one day and he gave it back because he didn't feel good with it near him. But that was the only one that he didn't like or didn't work for him.
So personally I am a believer now. If you aren't sure you could start your own experiment. Find a crystal shop and pick a few that appeal to you or just go for a walk and see what you find lying around like Trevor did. We have lots and lots of quartz in our backyard, I find pieces all the time when I am gardening. I think we have selenite and rose quartz around here to but I haven't found any yet. It doesn't hurt to try but it just might help.
If the person does not want healing wouldn't they unconciously block it?
I had a chakra chip necklace. I got it home and put it on, after a few hours I felt like I had the flu. I cleansed it over and over but every time I put it on I would feel the same. I ended up giving it to my daughter because it didn't bother her at all. Crystals can be funny that way. Some of them I don't notice a thing but others I can't even go near without feeling sick.
Another interesting point. I have had to stand up to people before but I have never had any of them turn on me for it. I am always speaking the truth and usually it is because I feel I have to stand up for someone. I had a table full of tough men, acting unruly, apologize to me when I stood up and confronted them. I looked at all of them and they looked like their mother had caught them, lol. But they stopped and behaved.
Hmm, that is something to think about. There seem to be very few people that I would want in my energy field. I think in my case my energy and body language is telling them I don't want them too close. I prefer to keep my space bubble to myself unless I invite someone into it.
People seem to be scared of me as well. I'm just a tiny woman but I seem to be a powerful sender. My husband works out of town and if I am having a bad day he will get a blast of it even if he is 40 miles away. Even when I have the intention to shield him from it. Then it just seems to strengthen what he receives.
(I just wanted to add that your cat looks so much like mine. We call her Ruby Two-face because she has that same split down her nose with orange and black. She is a siamese with flame point and seal point. She looks like a messed up Picasso, lol)
We all know the election is coming soon. I know there are others on here who love Avaaz as much as I do so now we can combine the two. Harper has attacked our freedom of speech and is muzzling scientists again so avaaz needs our help to put the pressure on him. Personally I love the Harpermen song and the people of our country do still have freedom of speech so let's show Harper he can't do this to us.https://secure.avaaz.org/en/harperman_22/?tTyYVib Please sign and get this scientist back to work if you believe in the cause. I do hope it is ok to post this here.
I have trouble with this too. It is worst when they are feeling something strongly. Like when my husband gets home from work and gets excited or angry about his day. I just can't look him in the eye or I flinch from the intensity of the emotions coming at me. If the other person is thinking or feeling more calmly then I don't have as much problem with meeting their eye. I think that is why I prefer to chat with people through writing then with face time. I can't read into their words in writing as much as I can with their tone, body language and emotions all coming at me in person.
Welcome to EC Eddie. I hope you find the answers you are looking for.
Being an empath and highly sensitive, I hate parties. I pick up way too much from people through feeling, seeing and touch. In western culture people feel the need to touch each other when they meet. A hand shake or a hug if they are really close to a mutual friend. I get really overwhelmed with sensory overload in a group. I much prefer a very small group of only one or two people.
I would suggest trying more then once to get a good idea of what it is like. Not every group or outing is the same. You could even come to love it, some people do. It is new and scary right now but bit by bit you can get more comfortable. You might want to work your way up by inviting a few people for a wine night at first or something. Then maybe have a dinner party with a couple more added. Good luck I hope it went well, I know I am a bit late responding.
Welcome to EC Assear.
People who need to talk can spot me a mile away. I think that even if we aren't healing them, we do help them by listening and being able to feel them. By feeling what they feel or felt we can understand them better then non-empaths. I understand feeling sick all the time too. My mom would take me into the doctor all the time and find out I wasn't sick so she thought I was making it up and copying other people. It isn't something I can control. I am still working on shielding myself.
I would start with the empath survival guide and also read around on this site. You can learn so much here. Good luck to you.
The hat idea might work on a mental level. If you put the hat on with the intention that it will block it would aid the mind in creating that. It could help in that you have a physical object that you can feel and see to remind you to keep that shield up.
No, no it doesn't work like that so much. I don't think I am picking up on your illness but who knows. Most of the time I don't get to find out who it is from but once in a while someone tells me and I can link it. It isn't when I am talking to someone, it just shows up randomly as far as I can tell. It could be my healer side but I'm not sure that there is much info out there about this kind of thing yet. I don't even know what to call it. But it is usually things that I don't know about people that I pick up rather then the issues I do know about. Possibly a form of clairsenience, clear feeling? No, I would absolutely not like to be in your shoes but I don't like to see you in them either. I do wish I could spare you all of it.
I haven't come across any crystals for that yet. You might want to take a peek in the ascension symptoms though, if you haven't yet.
Oh no you are not alone. I only talk about my crazies here and to my husband. The medicos would have a field day with me. Telepathy, claircognizance, empath, hsp, oh and whatever they call it when you can feel other people's sickness and injuries. The latter is a fun one I tell you. I don't even go to the doctor anymore because most of the time it is not my illness I feel and they think I am a hypochondriac. How do you explain that to the doctors? Well sir it must be my neighbour's broken leg I'm feeling, sorry to bother you, lol.
If you talk about it in the general public then people might link it toschizophrenia. It is nice here. People don't think you are crazy because we are all a bit crazy and weird here to outsiders who don't understand. I can't help you with learning more in this area unfortunately. My telepathy is untrained and I wouldn't even know where to begin or if I would even want it to be stronger. It just happens and I don't always know when it is my thought or not. They all sound the same. If I am paying attention then I might notice, if I know how the other persons thinking differs from mine. I can send my thoughts at a person too. I have thought things at my husband and he will mention that topic or idea. So I suppose I have some control over sending but the receiving is more random.
I have never heard of a clearing scrub before, that is neat. Do you use salt instead of sugar to make it?
I like my black tourmaline. Actually I have noticed there are quite a few people here who like to use it. That is really great if it helps your psychic pain. My favorite is fluorite. I read it is good for empaths but I like it for pain too. It works faster then pain killers for joint pain, my husband will use it on his wrists for his arthritis pain. My kids all had one to put on little boo-boos and they said it works for them. I gave one to a friend with degenerative bone disease. He asked me if they made beds of fluorite so he could be pain-free everywhere at once. His mom would use a tensor bandage to hold the fluorite on wherever she needed it. I am a big advocate for crystals now.
Hi Grumpy, welcome. I hope you are still here and I do hope you situation is getting better. I would start with the empath survival guide, there is a link at the top of the page here. If you haven't already I would explore this site and learn what you can. We have so much information here on what has and hasn't worked for other empaths. Meditation does take practice. There are other options too such as yoga or tai chi, if meditation is not working for you. I wish you good luck in this situation. Remember nothing stays the same forever and this too shall pass even if it doesn't feel like it.
Oh very cool gift, sensing earthquakes. Welcome to EC. I make my own products too but I am just beginning. I make as much as I can myself rather then buying it premade. Candles, lip gloss, lotions, anything I can think of that I can do myself. Youtube is a good resource for recipes too, I like to be able to see them make it so I can tell if they forgot to mention something in the recipe. I also work with crystals, herbs and oracle cards. Wherever my interests lead I follow.
How do they help you as an empath? Is it from certain herbs or EOs that you use in them?
That is really neat, it sounds like you are an animal whisperer. I have an affinity to animals but not as much as you do. I know what my cats are saying but I don't know if it is telepathic. It is more like I understand their meows and body language. I can pick up on people's thoughts but I haven't noticed it with animals, I think I am just reading them. My husband was getting annoyed because as soon as he would think something I would say it. He would tell me to get out of his head, lol. I told him I don't know when I am in your head, it sounds just like mine. It sounds like you have a very exciting gift.
Welcome to EC Madeline. I know we have some precognitives here. Have you looked at the other groups yet? There are at least a couple groups you might be interested in. I'm quite sure you will find someone to guide you in this. We have so many warm, loving people here with such a wide variety of gifts. I'm know you will fit right in.
Reading this pushes me to get back into meditating. I have tried healing but it gets stuck in me instead. I was trying to remove the pain and shoot it out into the wind to disperse but I think I have a lot more work to do on me before I try again. It has been so busy here lately and distracted me from my empath goals. I have no idea how I will find any quiet time during the summer but I have to try. I really want to progress in this area. My palms will pulse when I meditate with crystals but I haven't gotten too far into energy healing. It is very intriguing. Unfortunately I am kind of in the middle of no where so I can't take a class or anything to learn. I have to go through the internet or books to learn for the most part.
Please keep us posted on your progress here. I would be very interested to hear more. Also welcome to EC Equus.
I have heard that signifies a very spiritual person. Here is a site that tells you about all the color meanings.
I have this gift as well, if you want to call it that, lol. It sure doesn't feel like it when it is happening. But every time I get that feeling something happens, within a few days usually. I do wish it would come with something more like a picture or thought to at least give me an idea of what area will be affected. Though it does rarely if I really need more info in order to act or protect myself. The dread alone is unnerving and stressful while waiting.
I have been getting worse in that area. Now when I go in a big store I start to get dizzy, lightheaded, kind of a blurry, tunnel vision. I thought it was because we were going too early before I had a chance to eat breakfast but it is happening whether I eat or not. I happens anywhere with a lot of electronic machinery or people. We do try to go shopping during the quiet times but place can hold energy too. I have to get back to my shielding practice.
I would say the middle two look more like amethyst and the dark one looks like a purple fluorite. I have a very dark fluorite like this. (The picture isn't clear enough so it is hard to tell, I know it is hard to get clear pics of crystals.) I am not sure what the other is but I would say it is not citrine since the stone is not clear enough. Possibly calcite but it looks kind of different. Lepidolite in my experience is a bit sparkly and has white or clear mixed in with the purple.
That is very interesting. I put moonstones in my cat's birthing box when she had a litter and one of them turned orange. There was no mess near it or anything. It couldn't have absorbed the color from the box either because all the other moonstones were normal. She had a difficult labor though and one of the kittens was stillborn so maybe it did it's job in helping her. Crystals can do funny things sometimes. I have heard of them breaking when they feel you no longer need them but mostly mine crack because I forget about them in my lap and then stand up, lol. I haven't done that for a while because I really didn't like breaking a new crystal piece.
Hsp is similar to empaths. Personally I am both. As an hsp you would still know what everyone is feeling from their faces and body language but not feel it from them. I get overwhelmed with everything I pick up from people just with my highly sensitive nature. There are lots of people here that are hsp, you are not alone in that.
You are very welcome to stay and see what you learn about yourself and others. Even if you are not an empath you would have some similar issues being an hsp as well. We do have discussions here about the differences between the two which might interest you, as well as many different side groups. : )
No the pressure is still there from everyone to get out and socialize in big groups or people getting upset because we don't visit often. At this point I just don't go out much. People can take the time to understand me or not. My husband knows me and I know me. I have quite a rich inner life and finally have support. He is very supportive in all the craziness I find here and where it leads me I am growing and getting stronger these days, just not in the socializing area. I prefer to socialize online because then I don't read so much from people as I do in their presence. It is overwhelming to feel everyone's emotions in a group then be able to read their faces and put it with their words. I take in way too much information with my senses.
