New Group Contineued/Other Common Traits
Psychic and Paranormal
Hi Angel, yes that does seem so. If you know of any other things that you have noticed you have in common that are not normal traits please add them.
Dan : )
I have noticed on here that most of us seem to have some kind of health issues or have had some kind of trauma that may have triggered our empathy. I have seen it discussed somewhat before but if we all try to remember back when your empath abilities started, was there a health issue or trauma that may have coincided at or near the same time.
Dan : )
I have noticed through conversations on here that many of us have more common traits than we find on typical empath websites. There was enough interest to make an attempt at creating a thread about it on here. The groups section is closed to new groups so it was suggested we do it in here.
So it you have traits or things that happen and find that others seem to have similar things going on please add it to here. We are looking for traits not normally mentioned on typical websites. My first post will give a good format that we can look at and relate to.
Feel free to add any you can think of.

Hi Happytobeme and welcome to the EC. I hope you find this as wonderful of a place as I have. Be sure to look through all the different groups on here. Also the Empath Survival Program on the main page. Jump in and join the conversations and be sure to ask questions if you have any.

Hi Passion, most likely it is static electricity. You know when you walk barefoot on a carpet and touch someone and get the little shock. Pretty much the same thing. When some heather conditions are right it can build up in the air and it is a little more visible. Nothing to worry about though.

Hi Abbey, welcome home. This is a place you can do just that so take off you mask and join it. Many of us here use our gifts remotely. You will find it just as easy on here as it is in person.
If you look on the main page you will find The Empath Survival Program it is a good beginning to get some protection from other people emotions. Also for being in public I love The Zip Up Technique by Donna Eden.It is a 6:18 video and you will be able to do this right after you watch it. It is that easy.
Other than that you may want to look through the groups as well as the main forum and if something catches you interest just jump in and add you feelings. Also feel free to ask any questions you may have. Everyone here is super nice and helpful.

Hi Sandie, there has been a threadThe Shift and Symptoms in the Tools for the Empath group.You may want to go read through that one. There was a few people discussing the same feeling you are getting in that thread. They do go into pretty good detail and of course ask any questions you may have too. I am sure they would be more than willing to help.

Hi Real Faction, you may find it better to post this one in theEmpath Teachers, Trainers, Guides and Mentors (Find a Teacher or find Learners to teach)group. Also may I suggest you have her do the request herself. I think it is awesome you are working on helping her though.

Hi BouBou, I know I have had issues with this too. I am not sure this is related in your case. I noticed the closer I became to people the more they understood my abilities and would seek my advice on things or I would perceive it that way at least. Really all they wanted is for me to listen and be there for them. When I did advise them too because we were close I was no less that brutally honest thinking that is what they wanted when it wasn't. I found rather than helping them I was pushing them away.
Like I said I am not too sure this is related but I know it made me do some inner searching right now so thank you for the topic. I love when people make me look inside myself.
Thank you, Dan : )
Hi Chris, it seems to be a lot easier now, thanks to the EC. Before that though is was not all that easy. I think that is why one of the common traits of an empath is isolation. I do not feel so isolated now. I can come here and share what I need to stay grounded.
Dan : )
Oh there are so many, you failed to list yours though.
How about a few;
It's a Wonderful Life. (Because his was)
The Rainmaker. (With Matt Damon)
Old Yeller (I was young and boy did I bawl.)
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (Who wouldn't want to fix Washington)
Hi, I have been doing a lot of self analysis lately. One of the biggest things I have been working on is trying to rid myself of negative human emotion. I think that one of my biggest realizations is that all of those emotions such as hate, anger, resentments, fear and so on are not something we have at birth. They are all learned behavior.
I find the more I strive to distance myself from these I am more in touch with my higher self. I feel that is why I tend to isolate myself from people more and more. If I do not have outside forces feeding those traits I seem more content. Fortunately for the most part I do not seem to get as much of this in the EC. Most of us seem to focus on the positive aspects of our lives and opposed to the negative parts.
This is something I have been contemplating for many years. I have been trying to think of a way to awaken this in all people of the world. The whole "pay it forward" concept.
Thank you for the wonderful topic and for letting me express my feelings.

Hi Limegreen and welcome to the EC. I hope you find this place as I have, a place to open your abilities and grow more than you can imagine. I think you will find the people here more as family than friends as I have. They are all so helpful and nice. No one seems to judge you for anything you say. None of of are experts was are all on a journey to seek out as much knowledge as we can and to share it with other like minded people.
One of the first things I always recommend is protection. May I suggest you take a look at the Empath Survival Program on the main page here. Also theZip Up Technique by Donna Edenwhich really helps me in social situations. It is a short video that explains this so well and it is so easy to use. That will get you started as well as the Tools for the Empath group. There you can learn other methodsof protection.
There are 61 groups here in many ranges of topics. I suggest looking through them and finding the ones that reach out to you and read through some of the threads. Other than that do not be shy just jump in and post to anything you feel the desire to.

Hi Alison, I have a feeling we are not alone with feeling this way. I know I used to feel it all the time. I still do but very little now. I think we all get drained at times and need to reboot ourselves. I am not sure if you are new here or not but welcome to the EC regardless.
May I suggest you take a look at the Empath Survival Program on the main page here. Also the Zip Up Technique by Donna Edenwhich really helps me in social situations. It is a short video that explains this so well and it is so easy to use. I find if I get away for a brief time and get out in nature (my happy place) I do feel replenished. Even if it is only for and hour or two.
I hope this helps you some.

Hi Gen, just so you know I have met many people that have had or has problems with addictions including myself. I know exactly the kinds of people you are talking about. I live in Granite Falls, WA at one time known as one of the biggest meth making capitols of the US. I know you lived up in WA at one point.
I found for myself the whole addiction thing was a great way to hide from being what I later found was an empath. I knew I was different my whole life and it was hard for me to deal with it. Now I embrace it. I do not need to impress people, I am who I am now. I am sure you will find out the same thing in your future too.
You only need to help the people you want to help. Helping the kinds of people you are talking about can be very draining. I am surrounded by them living here. I call them all takers. They will take anything you will give them and leave you empty, broke and drained. There are some though I feel worth trying to help. They are the ones lost but still not takers.
I hope this helps and makes sense. I am here if you need to talk more too.

Hi Emmy, actually who's feeling are you picking up on. Yours or his. My guess it was his. Why should you feel bad when you were in the right. He shifted his disappointment on you and made it yours. You did exactly as you were told so you should be all good. I am sure there is a grace period for you to pay the rent anyway. Remember do not take on emotions that do not belong to you.
Dan : )
Yes I have mentioned this quite often. I cannot "read" anything about me when it comes to me. I am not sure why that is but it is.

Hi KitKat, yes he is a father and a grandfather, to you. Most likely your great grandpa. He is watching over you and when you feel the negative part, notice that it is mostly when you are or are thinking about something he may not approve of. He is there watching over you. You have nothing to fear though. He is actually very comical and practical joker. He hears you and if you loose all the fear you will hear him in your "thoughts."

Hi Snake, my goodness. I had just wrote a very similar email to someone. One thing I find really interesting is as a child I was scared to death of them and as I grew older I have completely lost all fear. I too love to watch the ghost shows on the TV. In fact it was through one of them that I had found this site.
A little of my background; I went on a quest in search of "god" since I was about 14 and I had been to almost any type of church you can imagine over the years. I am now what you would call a non-religious person. My beliefs have been shown to me by my guides. The basic concept is that we are all spirits some are just inhabiting human "vessels." When those vessels cease to be we return back to the "spirit world."
Since I have came to this site I have "crossed many spirits over." They use our light to find their way.Sometimes a spirit gets attached to the human part so much and our worldly possessions that they do not want to give it up. Once they pass on they do not want to leave. They fight from doing that.
Recently I came into contact with one just like that. He was scaring some people and refusing to go. In fact he wanted to claim what he thought was his and becameforcefulin doing so. These peopleperceived him as an evil entity. I did have a slight "struggle" crossing him over because he did not want to go. As soon as he crossed though, he began to thank me, he hadfinallyfound peace.
As with you I was told by my guides that "evil is created by man." If you really think about it the whole concept of the good, the bad and the ugly were all created by man. It is all how weperceivethings really. I feel that is why we all have such a tough time getting along in this world. If "god" created this world should not all things be beautiful. Should we not all love each other.
These are my thoughts so embrace your spirit. Dan : )
Hi Unicorn and welcome to the EC. This is home for me. I find all the lessons I need here. Everyone is so kind and wonderful in this place. Now just look through the groups and the main forum and if anything jumps out at you post to it. Ask any questions you have and someone will relate and reply. I hope you find this place as wonderful as I have.

Hi Dio and welcome to the EC. First off your English is great so do not worry. Even though it does not need to be. We are all empaths here all we need is enough to get your point. Yours in fact is better than mine at times. Do not feel like you need to explain how you got here,although it is important to you now that is what has built your character. The most important thing is you are here. I did love your story though: )
Here you are not judged by content or anything else for that matter and you stories will all come out over time , don't worry. I know I can speak for everyone here by saying you are welcome and as Door said, HOME! We are all here to encourage, help, teach and learn all together. Everyone's point of view is right because it is theirs. No one is an expert at all. And you are loved by all.
All the advise I can give you is join in any conversations you choose to. Ask any question you would like too. And learn as much as you want to.

Hi Katlyn and welcome to the EC. The definition of a Universal Empath is;The ability to possess all of the Empath traits. The psychic-hybrid.Lets not get a head of ourselves though.
The first thing I recommend is to check out The Empath Survival Program on the main page. It gives you and introduction into protection that is so important to us. There are 61 different groups in addition to the main forum on here. I suggest you go through them and read in any that seem to jump out to you. Other than that just jump in to any topics of conversation and ask questions. You will learn the best that way.

Hi Frane, I am curious if you have learned any protection such as the Empath Survival Program or/and The Zip Up Technique. Both of those help me to be able to take in what I want and block out the rest. People trying to make you a "witness" is not fair to anyone. It puts you on the spot and forces you to take sides. It is a major control technique used only for their protection.
Am I irresponsible, there is another question that can be construed differently. When I was younger I was, as most kids can be. Sometimes it is hard when your young to think beyond tomorrow. As a parent and grandparent now I have to admit I have used that myself. It is a way of saying you need to look inside yourself and figure out life in general. Like when I was young and had a job my paycheck lasted only through the weekend. I would manage to get by but it was a struggle. As I got older I had to learn to budget my income, to pay the bill first, to plan for work, to plan for food, ...
I know my kids felt as if I was being mean and cruel but now they are grateful for the lessons learned. When we are younger our parents appear as dictators just trying to control us. The reality is that they do not want you to make the same mistakes they did. The lessons we learn young takes us into the future.
I hope this didn't sound so much as preaching as teaching. This is a place to learn anyway. I hope you understood it.

Hi Kat, I have no doubt you are an empath. You must remember there are many different types of empaths, just because you may not have one gift you may have many others. I just found a good site that may help explain this to you a little better. Scroll through it and I am sure you will see what I am talking about.Check it OutScroll to the bottom and look at the types first and then go read about them.
I hope this helps. Dan : )
Hi Dennis and welcome to the EC, your home now. This is a great place to learn how to open your abilities. It is great you have looked through the groups. Find any you feel compelled to join and open up what you are experiencing. No matter what you say in here someone will relate and then you will feel a part of. The rest is easy from there.
Dan : )
Hi Conny, Welcome home. As you can see your English gets your point across very well so do not worry about that part. You do not have to worry, your now in a place where you belong. Anything you say in here someone usually most everyone can relate to. Many people felt the same way you did when they got here. It is fun to watch each other blossom in here.
I agree with the others on here and how important protection is. DoorMA had mentioned The Zip Up Technique by Donna Eden. It is very easy to learn by watching a short video and it really changed my life. I can go do things and to places I never could before. It used to be a crowd when I was around 4 or more people and I could not handle it. Now I can go shopping again thanks to that technique.
You can try to shut out being an empath but it is what you are. In the end it is a dead end road. You can learn how to control it and will even embrace it eventually. Most all of us do. Just keep coming here meeting new people and you too will grow.
I am looking forward to hear more from you, Dan : )
Hi Pharrah, first off these are just exercises to open your abilities. There really is not a right or wrong. I began in this group a while back and it really expanded my abilities. The people are all so wonderful and do not judge what you pick up. We actually kind of feed off each other. It is such a blast and I have made some great friends here. Go join in on the current group and enjoy., I know if you do you will love it as I do.
Dan : )
Hi Keller, Have you learned any protection yet? I have a feeling you are leaving yourself open for other to invade. I suggest you try The Zip Up Techniqueand the empath Survival Program on the main page. You might also want to try looking through theTools for the Empath groupafter you have learned those.
