Needing healing, peaceful vibes.


Empath

It has been tough lately. My oldest daughter moved in with her grandma, long story with more trouble to come. Then my littlebrother passed away at only 28 years old. I am trying not to feel my whole family's grief as well as my own while being so stressed out over the situation with my daughter. I am feelingso anxious all the time again. Not fun right now. It looks like I'm not the only one having trouble right now though with the posts I have been seeing lately.

If anyone has some calm and peacefulness vibrationsto share I would much appreciate it.

What crystal is this?


Tools for Empaths

I would say moss agate but the green looks so light. Aventurine is solid green, and I haven't seen a blue lace agate like this either. Tree agate is usually white with a bit of green isn't it? I have one but not sure on variations. I hope you figure it out, I haven't seen a crystal quite like that and I have lots of them. It could very well be moss agate though.

Getting started in Tarot


Tools for Empaths

Mikayla has given us a good start on this area. If you check out the top two topics in this group they are about tarot as well as the thread Preparing for a Tarot Reading. You might find some help there. Also there are many sites on the internet that explain and teach tarot. Another option is Oracle cards. I use oracle instead of tarot. I find the oracle cards tell you more in the explainationsinstead of having to figure out what the tarot cards are saying.

Some people practice by drawing 3 cards a day for morning, afternoon and evening. Then look at them before bed and see if it makes sense with how your day went.

Good luck

I miss the convienence of the city. Having so many options for what you want or need. I much prefer the quiet of small town and would actually prefer an acreage to living in town but due to the cost it isn't an option right now. I am very noise sensitive so the city was too much for me. I tried it for 15 years but I was working on moving back to a small town once I had kids. It is still too loud but less then the city. Plus with owning our own home now we can change it to help, like buying more sound proof windows and such. I'm not a big nature person. I love plants and animals but Idislike the bugs and heat stroke that go with it. I prefer to enjoy it from inside for the most part.

I have this problem too. It is really bad between my husband and I. Half the time we don't even know who had the thought first. We are constantly speaking the others thoughts. Sometimes I have no idea who's thought I'm getting.I find it hard to keep eye contact if the other person is sending alot of emotion. Not that it helps me to look away. I have a problem with people staring at me usually. If I go to a restaurant or something there seems to always be at least one person excessively staring at me. Everytime I glance around the room that person will still be staring at me. I don't have a clue why and find it quite rude as then I can't quit meeting their eye because I know they are looking at me. I would like to walk up to one of these people and solve the mystery. It would be nice if my mind reading would work in moments like that. It's just weird because they just stare with a blank expression, not glaring or smiling to give me some idea what they are thinking.But anyways, I don't have any advice but I am reading thoughts right there with you :)

How to spread love without being obvious


Empath

Some people do a visualization where they imagine that love surrounding them and then expand the bubble outward to envelop others. Also alot of what empaths end up doing to help others is just to listen and empathize. Lots of people justneed someone to listen andfeel with them. That is why empaths tend to be singled out in public for chatting, like in grocery lines. If I chat withpeople one on one they tend toopen up about thingsthat they usually don't talk about. Like the time I went visit my husband's grandma alone for the first time.She spent the visit telling me about some of the painful times in her life. She told me about the son she lost and showed me the scar on her arm from a bad injury. My husband didn't even know the whole story about her son yet. Mostly I just empathize and listen. I can feel the emotions they feel as they talk about it whichcan help me decide how to respond.If it is someone you know that you want to show love to then just be there for them and show them kindness. I hope thathelps. Good luck on your journey as an empath. :)

Well, you can look up what you might find in your area and just look around or you can buy them. There are lots of crystal shops out there. If you are in canada then I would recommend dragon moon, I have ordered from them alot. You can get there through the fluorite link above. I don't know where to buy in outside of canada though others probably will.

Yes, I have made full use of the web and books. There is just so much info out there on crystals that a person has never really learned it all. Plus I am researching so many other thingssuch asenergy healing and herbs. I might end up making my own wandbut I have too many projects on the go right now. I am always making something or learning something. I just finished lip balm, lotion and shaving cream. Before that I made some bath products and this summer we are planning to make a batch of soap and tolearn canning. I am working towards an online candle shop but I might have alot more to add by the time it is actually up and running.

Crystals changing color?


Tools for Empaths

Do you think that is just something selenite does over time being such a flaky rock, ormaybe partlydue tooils in the handsrubbing off on it and soaking in? It could be from the work it is doing as well. We have selenite in my area but I haven't found any yet. I have to learn to identify more in their rough form. I know we have quite a few around here but I can't always tell for sure what they are.

How do you find selenite holds up as a wand? I have seen videos of people making them but you can see the pieces flaking off with every touch.

Crystals changing color?


Tools for Empaths

I did cleanse it two to three times, with at least 2 methods. I just found it and it is still looking like a peach moonstone. I will try again. I'm always cleansing and charging crystals. The neighbours must think I'm a weirdo because my window sills have a bunch ofcrystalson full or newmoons. I have crystals there in between too but I tend to prepare the ones that I want to do something special with during full or new moons.

Mar that does make sense. That would explain why it would turn orange.I have too much information in my head so some of it gets lost or doesn't connect where it should, as you well know. :P

I read recently that fluorite is a good crystal for empaths. http://dragonmoon.ca/main/product_info.php/fluorite-rough-p-16145here is what it says,

Fluorite is a stone that helps the healer, heal. Great for people who are empathic and tend to absorb the feelings of people around them. It is said when you carry a piece of fluorite with you, it can help shield you from absorbing too much from others. A stone of mystics and psychics. Aura cleansing, used for protection.

It is also good for pain, especially arthritic pain. I have a friend who has had many broken bones and he carries a fluorite with his for when pain flares up. It works fast too. Just hold it on the joint for about 10min and it feels like it numbs the nerves. You can still tell the spot you were having trouble but it is like the pain receptors are sleepy. Not sure how it does that but I have felt itwork myself when I had shoulder pain.

Nice wand, I don't have one yet but that is on my "want to buy"list.

Crystals changing color?


Tools for Empaths

I was just thinking about whenour kittens were born and remembered something strange that happened. Maybe someone has some insight.

When our cat went into labour I made up a birthing box for her with some blankets and crystals in it. I used some moonstones since my reference book said they were good for birth and easing pain. When I went to take them out afterwards one of them had turned from creamy white to quite orange. She did have a stillborn in that litter and had some trouble there. I found that really strange how much the color had changed like that. I left it in the window for a couple weeks to try and get it to go back to normal which lightened it a bit but it still had an orange tinge to it. I will have to look through my crystals and see if it is still like that, I had forgotten about it until now. It was covered in blankets and did not get anything on it from the birth either. Also the other 3 moonstones in the box were unchanged.

How does that happen? Has anyone had a similar experience with a crystal changing like that?

Had an Empathic moment today while getting stitches.


Empath

I wish an angel would visit me when I go to medical facilities, I could use some comfort there. I feel like I am hyperventilating even though I purposely keep my breathing nice and even. I get dizzy,light-headedand can't focus for the life of me, even spots in my vision. Doctor's offices are not as bad but dentists and hospitals are really bad. That must have felt so great especially in a moment like that of high stress.

I find that if someone is repressing then it finds an outlet through me. When my husband lost a relative I was the one who was a mess. He was trying to hold it together and I was losing it. I was crying for a week and feeling horrible but I had never even met the man who passed. I tried so hard to stop what was happening because I need to be strong to support him but his grief was pouring out of me in buckets and he ended up having to comfort me instead. I reallywish Ihad some sort of control over my empathy. I seem to feel what they feel but stronger then they feel it themselves.

I could not figure it out but for a couple daysI had the strongest urge that I had made a mistake and had to run from my husband. I could not figure out why in the heck I was feeling that way as I didn't have a reason to. I kept mulling it over until my husband came to me a week laterand confessed he had gotten cold feet for a bit after we got engaged. I was picking up on it but I can't differenciate between what is mine and what is not. I have to think it through and try to figure out why I would feel like that.I can assume it is not mine if I don't have a reason to feel that emotion but it is tough. Especially with being a mom of many. We are a family of 6 so there are constantly different emotions floating around, or worse they are all excited or all angry with each other at the same time. Then I feel like I am getting attacked by that emotion from all sides.

I too spent most of my life feeling depressed andlivingwith someone in the house constantly dealing with depression. I don't have much experience withnot feeling depressed. I have hadtimes, though few and far between, where I have truly felt happyor content without the edge of depression. I would like to get to a point where there is more contentment but I suppose that will be more possible once the kids move out and there is just my husband and I in the house. It will be much easier with less rabidly changing emotions from less people in my comfort zone. I love them but it is so hard to cope with so many at once. From the 5yo to the teenager,I get tofeel it allfrom frustrated tantrums to the confused moodinessof adolecense.It is exhausting. Still working on the grounding, shielding and healthier options. It is improving but I am back in a bad spell where everything is hitting me at once and everyone seem to be angry.

Thank you, I appreciate that. I am getting more educated everyday in health. We grow our own herbs and vegetables so far and will be adding fruit to our yard this spring as well. We try to buy less and less packaged premadefoods. I have been making more products at home like toothpaste and cough syrup. I'm sure we are still getting some of the toxins but I would guess that it is less than thetypically unaware person. I will definately look into this some more though.

crowds


Empath

I find that I have the same problem. It is hard to remember to use shielding when you really need it. I suppose reminding oneself after the fact should lead to remembering in the moment at some point. I do that all the time. Go through a stressful crowded situation and remember later that I should have tried shielding. I need to practice alot more as I am getting married this spring. I got my fiancee to agree to just us and two witnesses for the actually event but he wants to throw a big party for everyone to celebrate with us. It is really terrifying me. He has way too many friends and I have only met a few. They are all going to want to come to our house and party the night away. I know I can't handle this and would prefer many smaller groups coming on different days. I just cannot handle being the center of attention and being the only one that no one knows yet puts me in the spotlight. Not to mention how many people are going to want to hug and touch their good friends new wife. I can't stand being touched by people I am not very, very close to as I am on the extreme end of being sensitive. All my senses are overactive. I don't know how I am going to get through this but it seems I will have to somehow. I so do not want to end up causing a scene that no one will understand, like usually happens when I am in a situation like that. I always end up in tears and feeling like a two year old from all the frustration and being so overwhelmed.

I too laugh at inappropriate times just from the stress of what is happening.

I did get an almost euphoric feeling for a few days shortly after and felt better for a bit after that. Right now I feel likeI am back where I started since I have had more stress lately. Also pretty much housebound for the winter so that isn't helping either. I think that I had slightly more energy for a little bit, if I remember correctly. I deal with chronic stress all the time which could bethe cause and I forgot to mention originally. Now that I reread what I wrote I seeit is actually still improved slightly. I am needing a little less sleepa night now then I was, about 8-9 hours but still tired.

It is so hard to get my thoughts out clearly with 4 kids in the room and they always are when I need to think.

I try to meditate but it is tough for me. I have tried tai chi but I haven't found one that is easy enough for me, lol. Ipracticeyoga more often then the others. I am definately a heavy thinker, I think about everything and in depth. I read alot to distract and directmy brain when I need it. I have been working on my anxiety for years now but it still persists. I am thinking that it might ease up once the kids start moving out and I have less responsibility to worry about. I think the feeling of dread when something bad is going to happen is worse then the anxiety at this point. Thankfully it doesn't come often but I do wish it would be more specific other then just a feeling that something really bad is coming. I feel pressured with time too as you mentioned. Like I have to do everything right now because I won't have time later.

Thank you KM, that helps alot. I appreciate you taking the time to explain all of this for me. Sorry it took so long to answer, I have been digesting it all.

So when we have that feeling of "I have to do this" then we should follow that urge? I do see what you mean about things seeming bad at the time and being able to look back later and see the purpose of having had to go through that experience.I have been consciously working to make changestrying to be comfortable with who I am and find out more of who I am. It feels likeI have lost some of that along the way. It is good to know that something is happening up there inmy subconscious, helping me on my path :)

Interesting. Maybe that is why I am exhausted in this life, Icould betired of trying to make this personality work lol. I am familiar with MBTI, I am an INFJ. Not an easy combo with hsp and empathy added in to the mix.

It does seem at points in life that we don't have a choice. Like certain things are supposed to happen, no matter what our personal choice is in that area. I have had times where it felt like something very strongwas pushing me and I just had to do whatit wantedno matter what my logic was telling me. It seems I have more free will in the small things but less in the bigger issues of my life.

That is very informative, thank you. Do we tend to have the same base personality between lives or does personality change too?

Retrogirl's reading sounds alot like who I am now,even down to the hair, I have long, straight, really dark brown hair in hippy style, I have the same values. I just can't see myself wanting to be the center of attention as a starlet, lol. I am more of a wall flower. I do feel a connection to the farpast, like I was there and was more comfortable in that time. I work with herbs, crystals and assorted healing tools from the old days but have trouble accepting this new chemicalmedicine that is becoming so dangerous to humans with the side effects. Maybe that is a link.

Oh yes, I agree. Itcan bebetter then a therapist because how many therapists would even accept the term empath let alone the other things that go with it sometimes, like taking on someone else's pain. (Disclaimer: If you happen to have a therapist who does understand then do not let them go, they are rare. ) I think we can be much more open about these things among others who are similar to us. It is a support group that you can access anytime.

Introverts


Empath

Us being in the smaller percentage might be why we think differently. We know people are different because we are different from them. The majority is not highly sensitive or introverted so they don't understand or accept our minority as well. They get energized by groups of people instead of drained. I can get energized from good company too but only in small amounts and one or two people at a time. In China, I believe it is, it is the introverted and highly sensitive that are the most popular and the ones everyone wants to be friends with. Here in Canada we are discouraged from being sensitive or introverted, extroversion is the accepted personality.

Truth during the holidays


Empath

Thanks Roy, I think lots of us tend to have this problem. I know I do. Iunintentionally made myself sick one year because I was expected to attend my ex's family holidays and they usually have 100+ people attend. I didn't end up going because I was so worried about it that I was throwing up from the stress and worry. Thankfully mycurrentpartner has a very small family but it is still really hard to be in the same room with all the underlying currents of past and currentissues covered up by a smile. One person in particular there likes to say rude things to your face and then laugh like it is a joke and not offensive in the least. Everyone has to work around this person and everyone suffers forher comfort. She likes the windows open everychristmas tooso all the rest of us freeze while she is comfortable. It is usually around -35 to -45 celcius here at christmas so that is just ridiculous not to mention costly for the host in heating.

Animals' reaction to light and unseen phenomena


Empath

My cat is like that. He can open doors and cupboards, he is working on getting drawers open too. Hegets expressions on his faceand tone in his meows, he even uses body language. Our other cats aren't like that, they have one loud meow and one quiet one but my tom has so many different meows to communicate with me. He hates it if he thinks you are being sneaky around him. I will go to the other room and whisper "Don't tell Rex this psspssspss"and he will come running into the room just glaring at me for whispering behind his back. He doesn't respond to "here kitty kitty" either,you have to ask him to come here with words like he is a person, lol.The other cats appear to see something in the kitchen, they sit in the doorway watching something that I can't see. It might be nothing but they seem to think something is there and they sit there watching and guarding.

Seeing auras with visual impairments?


New Age

I have noticed people mentioning they can't see auras with their glasses on. Has anyone noticed if they have the same problem with contact lens in? I am going to have to get glasses or contacts soon as my eyes keep getting worse so I am curious if contacts have the same effect. I know it is easier for me to see auras when I am tired since my visiongets more blurry and my eyes less focused. Has anyone else found that helps them too?

Question for Readers & Sitters


Healers

Personally, I know enough about readings to understand that this situation can happen so I don't think it would add doubt for me. I also like to be clear about things with others so I think if I could give readings I would probably feel the need to add a disclaimer like that too. If you are reading someone who does not know alot about how the process works, I suppose it could put some doubt into their mind but it wouldn't for me. I hope that helps. :)

Yes, I understand. I was told all my childhood that I needed to be less sensitive, as many of us were. Which makes things more confusing as an adult. Am I supposed to care or not care? It is hard to find a middle ground where you care but not too much. I don't know if that is evenpossible for me. I tend to care about things that matter too much and others (like fashion) not at all. AlsoI think that sometimes when I hear someone's painful story, I will feel worse then they did when it was happening. When I react people tend to say no, no it wasn't that bad. But I feel their experience as it would have felt for me to go through it being highly sensitive. If that makes any sense, lol.I do think it might help people though as they tell me it wasn't that bad, maybe in their mind that incidentbecomes a little less painful as they say that. Ihope anyway.

Sorry, I don't have any advice for you but I can relate to what you are going through.

Hmm, now that's an idea. I usually wear my black tourmaline but I will try substituting these. I have all of those already so that should be easy enough. Thanks Josette.

Empath

I don't have a driver's license but my husband takes us home as soon as I get irritable. We try to keep an escape route open when we got into a group. He is empathic too but it is his family so he is more used to them then I am. My family is easier to say no to. I will keep trying the dials and see if I can get it to work eventually.

Empath

I have tried the dials but I don't notice any difference. Even if I can block the empath signals I still have the sensitivity to deal with because I can still see how people are feeling by their tone and body language. Maybe some of my shielding is working but its hard to tell when you are both empath and hsp? Not sure why I can't get it to work.

Ah, good idea. I hadn't thought to try that yet. Thank you.

Also it could be due to our own emotions. I know I am a pessimist and am more prone to negative emotions so that could be why I attract more of those same emotions from others. I am working on positivity but it is a hard road for a bornpessimist. :)
