Hi Minty,So do you mean that the other person was telling the empath about something which happened in the past, and the empath felt those emotions?If that is what you meant, then I have certainly experienced this. I can also look at a photo of anyone and know what they were feeling, what their self relationship was like and how satisfied they were with life etc at that point in time, and if I close my eyes I can feel then in the present then share what's changed with them.I don't think empathy is restricted to the present, nor do I think time is linear in the big scheme of things either but that's another topic lol.Thanks for the thought provoking post. This is my first post in a very long time, as I felt I should write this to you.Much love,Tim
Do you know who you are?
I spent years not knowing what I wanted and I also was defined by external ideals.
It wasnt until I learnt to listen to my heart that I figured out who I really was. I rarely make decisions based on logic any more, rather I simply assess how I feel and I am much happier for it.
I am me, I respect and love who I am and I now know that a job or hobby is not the definition of who I am. Rather I bring what I have to offer with me, in whatever I do.
Much love to you OP and to whoever reads this.
What brought you to this forum in the first place? How did you find it? If you were only feeling empathetic toward someone I doubt you would have gone searching or been guided to find this.
Start to really feel your way through your empathetic exchanges. When you are helping someone, did you have ANY emotional precurser for how they were feeling before you started speaking to them? This can be quite subtle until it comes to your consciousness.
Incedently there is no need for you to be an empath to help people, im sure you would know this. Whether you are or aren't you can still have a profound effect on people's lives. Good luck with your search

Extremely positive days
Yep, sometimes!Personally I don't set out to do anything specific with it unless there is someone struggling who I know needs some energy.Other than that I go about my day and watch as people around me respond to the posotivity. I watch people wake up from their dreary day, begin to have a good day as well. Others find the energy confronting and that is just as interesting to me. All in all I just observe my impact and it fills my heart even more, I love it.Enjoy your day!!
Hey Huey!I enjoyed reading that and I did find it useful; thus far my empathy has allowed me to pickup on mainly strong negative emotions and in turn I have been able to help those people cheer up or move past something they were finding difficult. It has become my world in turns of empathy and your experience has reminded me to be open and alert for other forms of empathy. Thanks As for your question I would think that's mainly emotional empathy but hey, it is rather just one or the other. You experience emotions via your physical body and heart so they are kind of combined.An example of more pure physical empathy would be a friend having a broken arm and yours feeling just as painful and right in the same spot.Again, thanks for sharing,Pillar

Psychic and Paranormal
Hi Nocturne's Angel,
That is rather a lot of info you have so kindly given, I appreciate it as I am sure others will. I had no found defensive techniques to my liking yet so I will definately have a look through those links.
I personally feel that I feed from the universe, and having been trained in Reiki it has really helped to manifest this. Ordinarily I feel as though I cannot be fed off and I feel very energetic and am constantly smiling and thankful for things that occur around me. That's why this event caught me so off guard and little wonder due to the day I was having at work.
Anyways, I embrace this experience as a change to grow and your links will no doubt help me along.
Psychic and Paranormal
Thanks Sierra.I have been doing research on psy vamps at the suggestion of a close friend who is also am empath. I appreciate that they don't realise they are doing it. Next time if I identify at the time that it is happening I will attempt to feed them Reiki energy which is at least limitless.Thanks for your reply, if I had not already been lead down the path of researching vamps you would have got me there.Pillar
Psychic and Paranormal
Hi all!I would love to share a recent experience and see what you reckon.I was at work the other day and unfortunately I was sleep deprived and had not been keeping a great diet over the previous few days due to stress. It was a busy day (I was running a retail shop) and each break I took was interrupted with manager duties.In the afternoon a customer came in who started chatting to me. I was looking up stuff on the computer for him through he wouldn't commit to buying anything. His stories were about him and he was not heaps interested in me contributing. Needed to say I was being drained but I did not realise it at the time. I just felt a bit impatient and incresingly stressed and anxious.After work I went via the supermarket and was fine, then when I got home I sat down and that was it. It all hit me and all I wanted to do was cry. I was so exhausted.What I would love to know is, while I am still getting used to identifying what's happening at the time, are there measures I can take to protect myself passively? I always carry a nice big amethyst with me as it dulls emotions when I am channeling someone hard but it didnt seem to do much in this instance.It took me three days after this to feel my normal energetic self again and I can't afford to be offline for that long.Thanks for reading!Pillar

need your positive vibes
You've got it boubou. I believe every trial, every testing situation is there for a reason, to continue our spiritual growth. I won't say more because I can feel how hard you are doing it. Feel free to PM if if you want more on that perspective.Take care and as promised I'm diverting some good energy for ya tonight.Pillar
How did you know you were an empath?
For me it started off by picking up on someone else's negative emotions. As in I would want to cry, be depressed etc without any reason in my own life to cause it.
As for feeling that something will happen and it does or knowing what someone is thinking, I personally think that's partly to do with being an empath and partly due to your natural aptitude as a spiritual being.
I hope that helps ya!
An Empath waking up
Hi Bill,Thanks very much for your kind words. I have been reading through discussions and have started to contribute and I will build momentum towards it and be regularly contributing once I settle in. Real life has me helping people too which I love, and it's daily now. I find myself in places where I know I am there for a reason, and the love and energy I get back is astounding too.You have however brought this process to the forefront of my mind, and I thank you for that. I agree I found this forum at an opportune time (there were signs and events confirming it for me also) so I look forward to getting to know more people.Much love,Pillar
An Empath waking up
Hey all,I have long known what an empath is, via one of my best friends. I have always had a connection with her and it has often been the case that I have been upset and she will call from thousands of kms away to ask if its me lol.For me this happened occasionally as well but not with any consistency or predictability.I seem to grow in leaps in my spiritual awareness and ability, and then cruise for a while. I'm at the tail end of one such leap where I have had an incredible fortnight or so, meeting some amazing people, saving a life, making close friends with a psychic and clarvoient and consequently being told wonderful things about my year to come.This in turn has allowed me to strengthen some existing relationships, pick other people up with the energy I have an really see the changes in myself. One such change is the shift to what seems like constant empathy. I have channeled three people in two weeks and the last two were in the last three days.If this is a permanent change in me I welcome it with open arms, and I feel extra safe knowing you guys are here for advice. Thank you.Much love,Pillar

Hi all,I'm obviously new here and looking forward to meeting some of you. I bring with me a lot of spiritual experience and knowledge and do have my days where I channel someone's emotions, but it isn't constant for me.I love learning and helping others to do so as well.Much love,Pillar
