Surrounded by gun crazed people...


Animal Empaths

I really am not a fan of guns. To make matters worse I just had to listen to someone shoot a creature over and over and over and over again in my backyard. I feel like a little piece of me has died! The worst part is there is nothing I can do.

Man is so blind to think he is better than any animal.

Passing on negative energy?


Empath

Hi! Me again!Just curious about this... Ever since I have found out I was an empath and started practicing yoga, meditation, grounding, etc. I have notice many positive changes in my thinking, feeling and abilities. It's been great! Except, my husband who is usually super calm cool and collect has been more negative and has a short fuse. Could I be causing this? He's pretty much the opposite of an empath, totally oblivious to others feelings, very logical yet he does have a very spiritual side. He's been practicing yoga and meditation with me as well! Is this just a coincidence or are these changes intertwined?Any thoughts?Thanks!

Involuntary Fear of 'Abilities'


Empath

I was raised as a religious christian. So they like to ingrain a lot of fear there. I also watched my mom struggle through her life and until it ended and I always wondered if her addictions had something dark attached to them. I believe light will be darkness every time. I trust God as much as possible at the point in my life, not to say I couldn't even more. Thats why i keep an open discussion with Him and ask lot's of questions. Church never felt right, religion and denominations are all man made so I've just started really finding where my true beliefs are. I can only go up from here! Pun intended haha

Involuntary Fear of 'Abilities'


Empath

You have a lot of good points!

I think my fear is based off two things... #1: Lack of control #2: Being tricked or something by darkness (like demons)

I have been writing and praying about it a lot. I feel much better already and have actually gotten closer to astral projecting. I'm also finding myself aware in dreams and able to wake myself up or control it.nk

I really want to go full into the spiritual world, so I will get there!!

Involuntary Fear of 'Abilities'


Empath

Wow! These are some great replies. Thank you all.

Jessica, thank you for taking the time to write all that out! I have read and reread this. It is wonderful. I have journaling some reflections on the topic and writing down any fears/ what I desire to come into existence in fears place. I already have noticed differences in how I think and my experiences. I plan to keep trying and keep slowing acquainting myself with these fears, dreams and abilities! It's such slow progress and I am just going to have to accept that!

Involuntary Fear of 'Abilities'


Empath

I am wondering what to do about this and if anyone else has/had this experience...

I have this fear of utilizing my abilities. It is involuntary and logically I can dismiss it, but it comes at the most inopportune times!

For instance, I was meditating today and got more focused than I had ever been.. the bathroom fan (i was in the bath) instantly went smooth sounding and my candle started drastically flickering. Even if it was nothing, my chest instantly tightened as if my heart chakra snapped shut.

Another time, I was trying to astral project and as soon as I got the feeling I could 'get up' my fear lurched up and I started seeing shadows across the room and I couldn't free myself and 'wake myself' up. Perhaps this was me sleeping and turned to a bad dream but either way the fear is present.

I have asked God to take it away and perhaps he is slowly, but it's quite annoying and I feel as if it is holding me back.

Any advice? Thanks in advanced!

Rereading this.. I can just see doubt in my explanations.. I want to overcome both these things!

Do stones have auras?


New Age

If aura is just energy, then everything must have an aura, right?

During my meditation, I decided to focus on my favorite stone. I think I saw its energy feild,but I can't be sure.. could it have just been my eyes playing tricks?

I would really like to be able to see auras efficiently. Any tips for practice?

Thanks!

Love & Light

Empath

Hi Sue, I agree that she definitely hadMunchausen tendencies. I'm sure that was one of the many things to heighten my sensitivity. Although, she was never the angry type towards me, but it was clear when she was using and I always knew that it wasn't really her, it was the drug of choice. I never felt like I needed to fix her, she passed away when I was 16 before I could even grasp what was truly going on. She taught me so many valuable lessons including how to love and released me from any burden she may carry.

As far as where to go next, I swear by Dr. Michael Smiths readings, they have helped a ton! I also am getting involved in Reiki, as in getting a session plus learning it myself. Maybe these are tools that could help you as well. Thanks for your reply!

Love & Light to you!

What an interesting story! Thanks for sharing. I keep getting blown away by how much physical stuff I am picking up. All this time, I couldn't figure out why i wasn't 'healthy' when my lifestyle is. Big weight off my shoulders! I like your wind/ foreign energy way of thinking. It makes total sense. Thanks for some great advice!

You guys have such great responses! I am truly learning so much. I have no intention of giving up! I believe I will improve with time, just maybe not at the rate I would like. :) Thanks to you all and keep the advice coming!

So far I have really enjoyed the story telling/ mindful awareness meditations. I will keep at it and keep trying new things!

Best Yoga for at home practices


Tools for Empaths

Do any of you practice yoga? If so, so you feel it has helped with your energy flow and meditations?

I am looking for a good DVD to do at home. I would love to goto a class but they are pricey and I would like to do it more than once a week.

Any info appreciated!

Anyone else have trouble with memory?


Empath

Hello!

I have had trouble with my memory for as long as I can remember... (mini joke there)
It's been suggested that it is from a traumatic childhood, perhaps I learned to block out memories and now it is in over drive blocking out good things as well.

As a newly discovered empath,I am wondering if the two could be related. I don't remember much of my childhood, but I do remember the feelings. Of course, I have been told many stories so I have an idea. When my mother passed away when I was 16, there is a 6 month period where I remember absolutely nothing.

I have very lucid dreams and I sometimes can't distinguish between them and real memories.

Anyone else? Any ideas?

Thanks!

Sensitivity to Food


Empath

I've always had a sensitive stomach and recently developed lactose intolerance (after pregnancy). I was wondering if it was connected to being an empath. Stress always makes my digestive systems shut down.

I have just started practicing meditation. I use a guided chakra cleansing audio. I find myself thinking every minute it feels like. I silence it but then it starts again without me even realizing it. It is frustrating. Any advice? Will it take me awhile to work through this?

Empath

Hello everybody! I am so grateful to have found this forum. I hope that it helps me figure out a few things and is a gateway to meet some like-minded people.I have been anxious to tell my story to a community of empaths and to get opinions on if these experiences seem relatable to this new world I'm discovering. I apologize in advance for my long winded-ness but would GREATLY appreciate your input, comments, support, etc.These are some of the main experiences and characteristics of mine that have seemed to match up with my readings on empaths... I'll start from my childhood.I can remember as a kid experiencing intense emotional moments. I would tell my mom "I just feel like crying but I don't know why". It was embarrassing and obviously unique, as no children around me felt this way. Looking back I realize that I could have just been picking up on my mothers feelings. She was a single mom that struggled with alcoholism, drug addictions and bipolar (to say the least). My husband describes my childhood as "colorful". He is a sweet man because it was quite an unsteady emotional roller coaster ride. My family just said I was sensitive or had a big soul and maybe was justifiably depressed.I was in and out of doctors offices constantly. My mom was convinced I was sick and sometimes that I was even dying, and unfortunately shared these feelings with me. I believed her. The doctors never found anything, fibromyalgia came up a lot since nothing could be proven.At 14, I moved out of my moms house and in with a family that was the opposite of what I was living. They were positive, healthy, kind and grateful. It took work and a lot of discipline but soon I was all these things as well with a few exceptions...I still had these intense emotional experiences. Sometimes brought on by a stressful situation and sometimes out of no where. The overwhelming sensation could often lead to my crying (like I did as a child) or would be a longer lasting event that lead me to withdrawal from friends and family since they didn't understand my feelings any more than I did. I ended up calling these anxiety attacks since many people can relate to the term, I still do.For the past 7 years, I have been working on myself. It's been the hardest challenge to get rid of my negative mindset that had been embedded into my brain. I moved away again, out of state and surrounded myself its positive, encouraging people. I've greatly improved but still felt like I was missing something. Like I was still different. Why is it so hard for me to stay calm and happy competed to everyone else?!Now reading on empaths, I'm having an "aha!" Moment. Maybe it's not just me. Maybe it's everyone around me and I'm letting them control me.I feel immense guilt when I've done nothing wrong. Just the other day I was carefully driving down the interstate when a man just beside me and flipped me off. I couldn't figure out why and knew I hadn't done anything wrong but that guilt stuck with me all day and all night. Like I needed to talk with him and fix his anger.I hate the news, I find myself grieving for the victims and their families. Even movies can send me spiraling into a dreadful mood and they aren't even real!I've always felt a connection with animals that no one else seemed to have.I can look into someone's eyes and see the type of person they are or if they've had traumatic experiences or whether I can trust them. I'm almost always right.There are other traits I have but I realize I've already written a short novel.To find that there is a name for this, there are others that have these same traits is such a relief. I'm not crazy!? At the same time, it scares me to enter this new world of spiritualism.If you've stuck with me and read all this, please feel my gratitude. I can not wait to hear from you.My question, do I seem like an empath? If so, now what?!
