Hi Dennis and welcome home. I only got here about six months ago and I am a year older that you. It is such a wonderful place for us. The first thing I always recommend is to start learning protection. On the main page is the Empath Survival Program it is a great start. There is another one too called The Zip Up Technique by Donna Eden. It is super easy to learn and to control who you let in.

There are also 61 different groups as well as the main forum to find all kinds of things to start you on your way. I suggest you look through the groups and see if any stand out or you are drawn to and read through some of the threads. Other than that just jump in and enjoy. We are a group of very friendly people that will relate to everything you have to say without judgment.

I hope you find this as wonderful a place as most all of us do.

Dan : )

Hi Bill, I hope you don't have to go to that extreme. LOL I truly believe you are already well grounded and will not need any help other from your guides and this wonderful community : )

I know a lot of your post have inspired me. Dan : )

Hi Pat, I did not feel anything negative about your care giving. Truth be told I admire you for that ability. I tend to absorb other peoples pain so easily I know I could not do it even though I would love to be able to. It is a wonderful gift to me.

I too am a magnet whenever I go anywhere where there are people. Everyone wants to talk to me and tell me their life's story. When I first came here I hardly left my house. Shortly after coming to the EC one of the lovely people here gave me a tremendous gift. It is a simple protection method called The Zip Up Technique by Donna Eden.It is so easy to learn and I am able to let people I want to in. Just watch a simple video and you will get it immediately. I recently even went to a comedy show and had a wonderful time.

I hope this works for you as well as it does for me. Dan : )

Hi Door, what I have been finding out lately that my gifts can be unlimited. I feel we all have the capability go doing anything we set our minds to do. If we want to.

For me I am following a path wherever it takes me. I have to try to eliminate my hopes and fears and just accept what is in front of me. It is becoming more peaceful for me this way. I have to give up control.

Empath

Hi Bing, those were terrific and inspiring. For me the very first one struck home with me. I have been eliminating any fear and hope in my life. I am just trying to follow wherever this path is leading without any emotional distractions. I only pray for what I need, it is the only one that ever gets answered anyway. My needs are very limited.

You yourself are inspiring for me. Your knowledge and wisdom help me on my path. I want to thank you for that.

Hi Judi, you are right where you need to be now. You have learned protection already and that is a gift in itself. I have a special place in my heart for children, mentally challenged as well as the elderly and like you it has been there since I can remember.

We are now on the quest of learning how to channel our abilities and gifts to bring them to the world. Trust me it is a wonderful journey.

Hi Pegasus, welcome finally to the EC. I am so very happy you are finally able to post. That must have been very frustrating, I can even feel it. I am looking forward to hearing your insights. I am sure you gained a lot from the B.O.S. website you mentioned too.

Now just jump in and enjoy. Hammer had some great suggestions for you. I am glad you made it home.

Hi Epiphany, that is an interesting question. I have always thought we need t a group discussing issues like this. A kind of research group.

While it is mostly thought everyone is born with these abilities I have found it very interesting how many people in the EC I have met that has or has had health issues. I have had abilities since I can remember but I also had a lot of trauma when I was very young too.

Because being an empath is not really commonly recognized by the medical profession or science in general there has been very little done to study much of it. I feel like as empaths we would be the best study group to work with, all on a voluntary yet anonymous basis. Great post : ) Dan

Hi Paper-Lanterns, I took on fighting in 5th grade to defend myself. I was picked on and ran home crying almost everyday in grade school till I took on the whole neighborhood in one day. I learned it was a way to keep from being picked on. I lost the need as I grew older though. I never liked hurting people ever. It hurt my heart every time. Really I am overly passive and really always was. I grew up to be a pretty big guy that has no fear of anything but I care about others more than myself.

I can usually tell when anger is around and only defend in I need to, like women, children elderly and other that can not defend themselves in situations. I have not been in a fight since my mid 20's and I am now 55.

Empath

Hi Pat, welcome to the EC. I have found this to be a great place to come and learn and even hone our abilities. Everyone is so nice and helpful.

I don't know exactly what your going through but my story seems very similar to yours. What I do find interesting that so many of us have some type of health issues on here. Depression has been a long battle for me that can be very difficult to overcome. I have found a lot of help with this in here though. One of my best ways to combat it though is how connected spiritually I am and how none of my problems are not all that bad. I have met so many people that are way worse off than me. I know how to ground myself spiritually when most of them don't.

Remember in here too it is very normal to ask others for help. We seem to always try to give to others but forget about ourselves. Here we try and help each other. I hope you find it as amazing of a place as I do or more: )

Am I beginning to see spirits?


Psychic and Paranormal

Hi Emmy, since coming to the EC my abilities have expanded. I believe we can gain any gifts we chose. It has been happening to me.

I have never have "seen or known" and evil spirits though. Keep that in mind when you do see them. Most of the time they just want help and others are people looking over you. That is the case in the one you are seeing. It is a relative that has passed on and has crossed over, they are just there for you. Open up and you will hear them. Not like actual words though, more like you will know what they are saying in your mind or what I call your own "spirit."

I hope this helps. Remember fear is created in our minds usually from outside influence.

Feel free to ask questions if you want too. Dan : )

Hi Sarita ans Wendie, I would like to welcome both of you home. Everyone on here is so wonderful and helpful towards each other. We are just one great big HAPPY family. The funny thing is you both have a lot to offer us as much as we have to offer you. You will understand that better in a couple of weeks.

Here is a good example; may I suggest that you take a look at The Empath Survival Program on the main page. It is a great start to learn some grounding and protection methods. My favorite protection is so quick and easy to learn is called The Zip Up Techniqueby Donna Eden. Now when someone new comes in you can pass that along as well as you own experiences.

You have the main forum to find so much good informationas well as the 61 groups featuring a big range of topics. Look through the and read some threads on the ones your drawn to.

Just join on in and enjoy! : ) Dan

Hi Jamie, if you are seeing those spirits they are being attracted to you the same way spirits of the living are. They are seeking your help is all.

I have seen spirits all my life, When I was very young they scared me to death. Slowly over time I learned that they were not malicious just misunderstood. In fifty five years I have yet to meet an "evil" spirit. Maybe a few grumpy ones, but who wouldn't be when people ignore them.

Fell free to add me as a freind if you would like to discuss this more in depth: ) Dan

Hi Keller and welcome home. You have a new family now and we are all here to help you as you are here to help us too:)

First things first, take a great big deep breath. I am going to give you a few suggestions to help protect you first off. On the main page is The Empath Survival Program. Take a look at it and try to follow the exercises on there. There is another one that is my favorite and it is super easy. just watch the short video and you'll be able to do this. It is calledThe Zip Up Techniqueby Donna Eden.

Most of us totally understand what you are feeling and going through. We all have been there done that. It is so hard to deal with but we have to remember to take baby steps so not to get too overwhelmed. You will want to look the the threads posted on the main page. There are also 61 groups on here, look through those and find any of them that may fit your feelings or that you are drawn to and read through some if those threads too.

Bottom line is if you have made it to this website you ARE an empath. Embrace it and get on board. I am still so excited about all this and I have been here about 6 months now. We are your real family now. No one really judges anyone just tries to help. Also in many cases this runs in families too so apply it to you real family and watch for the signs in you daughter as she gets older as well:)

Welcome again, Dan: )

I am not really sure what she is getting is an actual static shock, I thought I had read "it feels like'" in her original post.?

Hi Josette, Thank you for the reply. I wish I had the family upbringing you had and the support you had. My family was quite the opposite. It was something we never talked about until the past few years. All of my siblings as well as my mother are actually empaths. I was the one that put the name for it to them back in January.

My dad would beat me when I mentioned things and I was the "cry baby" throughout my grade school years. I was so passive and sensitive everyone exploited it. In 5th grade I finally stood up for myself for the first time. I hated doing it and crawled into a world of drugs and alcohol to suppress my real self and feelings.

I got clean and sober back in 1992 and have been on this journey ever since. Once I found my home in the EC I have been thriving to no bounds. What a wonderful and humbling experience it has been for me: )

I have seen spirits since I can remember and when I was young they scared me to death. I ignored them for so many years. You may have read about my path to the EC but it was the overwhelming amount of them that brought me here. What I had found is that they were looking for me to help the cross over. It has been such a wonderful time now for me.

My feeling has been that there really isn't evil spirits, they are just misunderstood. I have been blessed with the gift to communicate with them and cross the ones over that want it (all of them). For me there are no difference between the spirits of the living and the dead except the ones that are in the spirit world are easier to communicate with and in most cases more friendly: )

Hi Lucile, just being here tells me you have gifts, I sense you have more than one. As I posted before, WEhave a great gift of healing both spirits of the living as well as the dead and yes this does include you. Not all empaths possess this gift, others have their own special ones too. I look to them to help me as I can help them.

Not only can you accept yourself now your in a place where you are accepted by your peers. No one here is more advanced than anyone else, we are all on an even journey together.

Hi Hammer, Dmargo and Caramelo, I am very interested in these types of discussions. One thing though, talking about this in the main forum isn't good. It is actually against posting guidelines. May I suggest you re post it in either The Paranormal or Discussions with the Dead. We had a similar type one and the Moderator made us move it: ) I will add some on this there.

Hi Angel, I have been communicating and crossing spirits for a while now. I have seen them my whole life. Although when I was younger they scared me I would like to know if you have ever came across an "evil" spirit? I never have, my contention is that most of them are misunderstood and a few are grumpy as I would be too if everyone ignored me.

I have always had issues with electronics too. Watches may last a couple weeks at the most if I am really lucky. Also you may want to try this; If I hold a compass the needle will just spin round and round. I have to set them down to use them at all. Despite all that I was a great boy scout in my day. LOL

Hi Mary Anne, I don't look at it that way myself. I feel that if I can get into them in a way that is not malicious and they are open it is okay. The intent is what you need to consider.

For me it is really hard not to see people as they are. As an empath have no bad intent for anyone.

Hi Everyone, I have had some good experiences in dealing with this stuff. The first thing to remember is you do have a great gift of healing both spirits of the living as well as the dead. There really isn't a difference. The rewards are so great for us, we are healers:)

What I found for me was I over complicated all of this. It is very easy to do and no, classes will not help as much as just doing it.

First off I suggest you go read the threads in some of the groups. I would recommend:The Paranormal,Psychic Development ClassesandDiscussions with the Deceasedto start with. Also go to thePsychic Development Classeswhere they have on going exercises. Right now they are doing Psychic experiment #31. Someone posts a photo of a deceased person they look up. The idea is to try and pick up on the picture and figure out who it is. We all kind of feed off each other and figure it out. It is fun and a great way to get to know some of the others on here. They last a week usually.

What works for me in hearing the spirits is simply listen. Not with your ears but you "inner ear", the just "knowing" things part. If you just pay attention it will happen. Just don't try to hard. They will let you "know."

If you are "knowing" something that is it, simple as that. Just be willing and you will know. Feel free to post more and I will try to help or you can add me as a friend and ask me via mail more privately.

Random "jolts"?


Empath

Remember too, they hear your thoughts too. I have found it easy to just quickly respond mentally to them and let them know. Boom they are gone, but I know they have crossed. You hear them more while you brain is not as busy like driving or doing mindless tasks. Keep me posted with your progress:) Dan

Random "jolts"?


Empath

Hi RealFaction, they are not dead, our spirits do not die. They me be for people that have past. I would have to say if you have ever talked with them that is part of your gift. Unfortunately we do not pick and choose what type of an empath we are.

This happens to me ALL the time. Wherever and whenever. I pick up on spirits that have crossed too. My loved ones as well as others asking me to relay messages to other that are not open enough yet to hear them.

I have really embraced this now and find it very rewarding spiritually. It has still only been a few months since I figured out they were just looking for me guidance. But the followed me forever. In face that is what brought me to this site.

You may want to take a look at The Paranormal Group,"The Living and the Dead."It was my first post on here looking for help. I got it:)

For me I have never met a "bad" spirit. I feel they are just mostly misunderstood. When I was young they scared the heck out of me though. Now I have no fear whatsoever.

I hope this helps. Dan:)

Random "jolts"?


Empath

Hi Angel:)

I have a feeling you hit the nail on the head, but including the jolts. I get this all the time. Many spirits are stuck and I have come to the understanding from them that they can sense we feel them. They reach out to us looking for help. In my case the are using me as a "portal" so to speak. I just give them the nudge they need to cross over. That is all they are looking for.

For me I ask them what they want and if I get nothing I just tell them it is okay to go to the light and cross over. They can still contact their loved ones yet they are finally at peace.

It is worth a try for both of you. Dan:)

Hi Loyota, I am not to sure if at 12 she will be able to comprehend all of those at once. It may become even more overwhelming for her? I know I was extremely socially awkward. I was beat up and abused daily from kindergarten till 5th grade because I was so emotional. As long ago as that was it is one of the few childhood memories I had. I did not not have a pleasant time back then. It is so tough to learn all this on top of just growing up.

May I suggest taking her out to a place for simple people watching. Sit back so you not really noticed. You read the first person you feel and tell her what you get. The alternate and have her do it and tell you. You will pick up on them all and she may not. It would be good quality empath time for both of you and you maybe can help her along with her understanding. Just an idea.

I hope this may help, Dan:)

Hi Layota, I help those type of people all the time too. What is interesting is that down the road some of them come back and say, "You were so right I should have listened." That is my reward. I know I may be getting to some of them, just not at the moment. Never give up on what your heart tells you to do. We may never hear from them again, but just maybe, some time down the road your word will ring true to them:) Dan

Weird Feeling in back room


Psychic and Paranormal

Hi Mandii, I agree with Ecila, I have had a lot of experiences with spirits. I personally have never met any that are "bad" most of them are just misunderstood. You may want to talk to them and tell them they can cross over using your help if they choose. Then after they are gone or if they seem to still be there you can do the cleansing. You can find out how to do this you can do a search for "spirit home cleansing" and find a way to do it that fits your way of thinking.

Hi, before I knew there was a word for this and still even now. I tell people "i know things" or I "feel things." I usually just leave it at that until they ask for more clarification. If they don't, I just accept that they are close minded. I have noticed that most Christian religion zealots tend to preach that it is wrong somehow. I usually avoid mentioning it to them at all. To me it seems that after four years he should have picked up on it and figure it would be hard to call that "A deal breaker" either:)

Hi Pebble, welcome to the EC. First off I suggest you take a look at the Empath Survival Programon the main page. It is very helpful for us. Another one I love is The Zip Up Technique, you watch a short video to learn this simple protection. I use it whenever I go into public.I am adding a link to a U Tube video explaining The Emotional Codethat Sarah mentioned.

I am not sure exactly what you were talking about that is the issue you have but one of my favorite sayings is "Whatever anyone else thinks of me is none of my business." Remember it is all about what we think of ourselves that really matters. When you are on the EC no one will judge you, just embrace and try to help you.

Something...


Empath

I think we all should be done with this discussion. I highly doubt what most all of us are feeling is directly connected to the debate on global warming. I truly believe it is something else I am feeling. Maybe it could be part of it but not the root. Actually I think it has more to do with the division of humanity. The whole "argument" in general. The love hate thing. Too many people can't seem to agree to disagree and they get angry. As empaths we seem to pick up on the anger and drags us down hence draining us.

I do not like to speculate on anything. I like to let my guides answer my thoughts and and guide me. If I don't know the answer to things I am at the point I don't need the answers. The answers I get though are just for me.

Sheesh Door, I think you just posted my whole relationship life, except I was only married once. EVERYTHING you posted was spot on for me too. Don't be embarrassed or else I will have to be too. I never talk about it either.

I don't do the anger thing either. Actually I get along good with my ex. Just because we are both close to the kids. I even got to the point I pretty much gave up on the whole boy and girl thing. In fact I pretty much keep everyone at arms length except my close family. I have no real close friends.

What is wrong with us? I think I will shut up now and see if anyone has the insight to help both of us:)

Hi Nyarla, many people call it a blessing or curse here. I feel more like a blessing. A gift from "god." We tend to attract people all the time. There seems to be a catch though, most of these people (not intentionally) come to us and drain our positive energy. They leave their negative behind. It leaves us feeling drained.

I have found quite a few things in the EC that really help me. I would have to say the best is the most simple, you may have heard about The Zip Up Techniquebefore. I swear by it and it is so easy to learn and use. I recommend it and The Survival Program to everyone on here. I am starting to be able to get out of the house more and more all the time.
