Dreaming of yourself?


Empath

I have experienced this twice. What I gathered from what I saw coming to pass is my future self showing up. If you are in transition, have any vices or people you are trying to let go of, or an immediate goal to attain, I say that's probably the outcome.

To figure out what it is, consider something that is present in your day to day life, like a relationship, your job, or a hobby.

I'm suppose I'm the only one that caught that, Hilarious Bruce!

On a more serious note, Alcohol actually makes me more receptive, to the point that I feel like I know things I shouldn't.

Hopefully this gives you some peace of mind. I, as a "seer" for lack of a better word am able to do so through many mediums one of which is dreams. From my experience a dream can be symbolic of hidden feelings that correlate to an event. Such as. I know quiet a few people that work in entertainment. I may have a dream that one steps off the edge of a stage by accident. While the profession, stage setting and possibility of such an event is very real, what this could mean is;

1) there could be a literal injury

2) a life event could lead to said person no longer performing unintentionally

3) the individual could choose to give up or become unpopular thus the phrase; "they fell off"

4) the person could have a fear of actually falling off stage or their career ending and the "seer" was show the person's state of mind.

I know this seems like a lot of different scenarios, but the truth is in context. Besides the "feeling" of something bad what are the smells, the taste, what time of day does the vision/dream take place in? is there any symbolism?

I once had a dream about a friend on the back of a bread truck with dark rings around his eyes. Turns out the bread truck was an ambulance and the rings were two black eyes. He is a performer so as an after thought I gather the bread truck was that it had an impact on how he made money and therefore his "bread" both his food and money respectively.

As far a changing the future I have found that doing so is often met with resistance (not always) but people by nature like to think they have everything under control. So I have found that warnings are simply a heads up that may just sotften the blow. I believe in free will with "checkpoints" that show us that the decisions we made are in fact benefiting us or are going to add to the condition of our life in some way. When someone has a vision it is because the person or event has already been decided by the individual, (I.m.o.) . I hope that makes sense.

Not sure what I am


Empath

It reads like you see peoples shame. Yes it may be "sinful" but another way of looking at is instead of sin, consider that you are a detector of things people may not be proud of or things that prompt a certain amount of conviction. I can't say what you are to do with it. Unless your heart calls out for you to speak to these people. :)

Empaths and Fast Burn Relationships


Empath

Yes, omgoodness yes. I couldn't have stated some parts of this any better. I always felt like I helped to heal people so they could move on and love someone else(friends& lovers alike). It hurts like hell. Honestly Im at the point where I feel like this is my lot in life, bc no amount of love, expression, or reaching out can make someone stay or return if they don't want to.I have also found a pattern of the most difficult relationships to start being the most loving and loyal in the long run. This may alk cone doen to us paying attention & reading a situation before we become too attached.Hugs to you.

I love someone who is an empath


Empath

Yes. I didn't want him to "feel" unloved though my love for him is so strong. For instance: I work in human services so some days I walk in the door I can't stand to be touched or crowded and the first thing he does is kiss all over me like clockwork. At first he thought it was rejection but now he does so and gives me a few minutes to decompress.Another instance is about a friend whose emotions I feel so strongly its like I live them. I unfriend (push them away) them atleast once a week because I dont want my ability to percieve their stress to add more stress. They call me dramatic but there seems little choice sometimes. I can only speak for myself in saying I want to spare and be spared the unnecessary ups and downs. There isn't always an easy choice.Hope this helps. :)

Out of Body Experience


Empath

Does anyone every get light headed, not-quite-nausea ,out of body experience when people are talking to them ?

It's never when I'm speaking but when the other person talks. Usually during eye contact and it makes me want to stop talking. There is no emotion, it is strictly a physical manifestation of something.

I don't know what it means. It is a brief and fleeting sensation. I try to keep a poker face but if people only knew when it happens, they knock me over with a feather.

Very interesting @ soothsayer. I can't stand to hear my phone ring.

Wow this is all very interesting. Having been struck by lightning in my lifetime this is different to see so many people here experience this. I don't go through this but I do have recurring dreams of being electrocuted in different ways.

Other than that I can't hold a radio station or keep batteries long, this seems mild compared to everyone else's experiences. Bless you all.

Empath

Well I'm glad you enjoy the feeling. The first time I felt it, it weirded me out. :) I don't know if you ever put a 9v battery on your tongue as a kid but yeah..... This is a good topic though because I get something different with other emotions. Anger is hot.... so very hot.

New to this


Empath

Welcome. There are some quizzes you can take with a simple google search. You may consider joining some groups that relate to your experiences and interest(at the top of the page just below the heading) . When you register with EC the admins often pin reading materials to your profile page.

When you say that you "can't escape" , are you feeling trapped by empathy?

I love someone who is an empath


Empath

My advice is tell her everything you just told us. That was beautiful. I am married and it took my husband a while to understand what it was we as empaths endure, and how much it affects our relationships.

Be mindful though, you cannot place all blame on yourself. In a partnership there is give and take. She may need space, and as you try to understand that, if she is fully in the partnership with you, there has to be time where she understands that you desire her affection and attention as well.

Have you thought that maybe she left because she can't give you what you need? Being empathic is deeply sensing and it is possible she may have felt that you weren't getting everything you need either.
Talk to her. :)

unexplained feelings


Empath

I too was in elderly health care and I believe like any other relationship you can form unspoken bonds in the work place.

I think I know the feeling you speak of, would you say its fair to describe it like static electricity when you rub a balloon over your flesh but the feeling is under the skin instead of on top and its energizing in a way? I find that in genuinely happy people and people that are relieved from a certain types of stress( if they brush up against me).

I think you are helping your patients feel relieved and in terms find a state of jubilation. Consider it a pat on the back that you are doing exactly what your hearts intent is and that is helping people feel good.

In terms of daily life, few things feel better than getting up, getting clean & put together as you start your day. Like wise when finally going to sleep where you know you will finally come to a place of peace and rest.

Many of us take the ability to care for ourselves for granted. For someone that is not able to do it themselves you may be feeling their comfort, joy and gratitude.

Think of it like a receipt from the universe for your deposit into the Bank of Humanity.

Crimes, Missing Persons, Cold Case etc.


Empath

+++ This is also a blog post +++

Does anyone feel things associated with cases on the news or see a missing persons flier and are death scared of what you feel or may feel if you open up to knowing? This is a deep seated apprehension out of fear of being wrong on any account or giving someone a false hope. True enough I know that even the most advanced of feelers, seers etc have off days or miss details from time to time, yet the reluctance remains. Does anyone else struggle with this ? Is there anyone that assists with the local police department or human service agencies? Thank you.

This happens to me also. Only you know what works for you. The first time I realized I couldreadwas through the television when I was 19, I didn't realize I could read pics until I was 30. There are certain people who's inner "something" jumps out for what ever reason.

What works for me is avoiding FB or siteswhere people are posting pics of themselves all willy nilly, like Instagram. I couldn't even do twitter with words without feeling overwhelmed.If I watch or read the news I try to avoid looking at mug shots or pictures of victims.

I guess my advice would be to find your way around the things that make you feel badly and most importantly release the fear.

Hi Shadow. I used to go through that. This person liked to throw things or bang their head, a few choice other things I won't state publicly. When I spoke to them or thought of them I would feel like doing just those things.

What I learned the very, very hard way is to set boundaries. Set them when thinking of someone, set them before going into crowded rooms, or photos of people that your removed from your life. I do this especially before talking to people that have a track record of being negative.

Empathy and Psychic Ethics


Healers

Yes it did thank you. It was very much along the lines of the thoughts that made me start the discussion. I felt so pointless in knowing so many things that wrenched my heart. I seldom think to ask guides when I do, sometimes I don't understand the reply or what to do.

EX. I hear or feel a person is nervous.

I ask and might get a response like:

"__(person's name) ___'doesn't know what to say"

There is no context to that and it happens multiple times a day.

I agree with EmmyL. It takes work but you can set intentions for your space. I envelope my husband and peace if I sense he had a rough day. I also speak love over my home and send all energy that isn't conducive to harmony out of the door. I do the same thing at work.

On a lighter note..song(s) Empaths hope that don't play while driving...while wearing contacts


Empath

It is hard to explain and understand even though it is happening to me. When I went through ascension I could not listen to anything and I absolutely LOVE LOVE all genres of music. If there was any hint of sadness I would have a melt down crying. For whatever reason only sad songs affected me like that. Adele was the worst, with her voice being so beautiful, I longed for the day when I could enjoy it again.

All is better now.

Setting Boundaries


Empath

I understand exactly what you are saying about becoming the target of another's fear, anger, etc. I have an acquaintance with whom this is The case. It is hard. I considered that maybe they think that we are stronger and therefore more accepting and tolerating than most so there is no thought to how it affects us beyond them lashing out. Idk. I did need this reminder as I have been able to semi-separate myself from a toxic person. Thanks for sharing R.B.C.

Sick a lot and guilt about self-care


Empath

I believe it is your conscience. You knowing that someone has to bear the load, someone has to do rescheduling and so on. It's a part of being accountable. Dearie, its no different from when someone else is ill and misses work. The structure of most work places is to make provisions for such things, which is why there are leave of absences, sick days and most importantly vacation days. We all need a chance to regroup and decompress. You seem like you have a great work ethic, perhaps this is your body telling you to rest. So do it. Guilt free. I hope you feel better soon ! :)

* your question about Empathy and illness. I can't say for certain because I rarely get sick. Even though I do know an inexperiencedempath whogetsvery ill with some kindof flu like issue, respiratory issue or bothquite often.

Personally I will pick up a nauseous feeling, a temporary ache, or get drained when people are sick around me, but rarely do I get sick myself. As it pertains to empathy Iusually fall ill when major changes happen. Once after moving to another state, and once after forming an empathic bond with someone who was sick all the time. Both were about 4-5 years ago. I suppose if empathy is contributing to your ailments, perhaps you can identify a correlation to events or the nature of the people you are around and adopt some good grounding techniques.

Otherwise I would say its just a part of the human experience, we get sick. Drink lots of water, consider a good multi vitamin. And love freely. Those are the best preventative measures I can think of. :) Take care.

Empathy and Psychic Ethics


Healers

Reply byCheshire Cat;However, when it comes to relatively unimportant stuff, I find if I tell them they are about to jump into a swimming pool with no water in terms of a relationship, investment, etc., I find they will usually do it anyway, and afterwards, will kill the messenger (me). Every time they see me, it reminds them of how stupid they were and they lash out. So, now I let them keep their unnecessary dramas if they want them that badly.

You made me laugh. Really this is so true about the "unnecessary dramas", at least when it comes to people we know well enough. This excerpt describes perfectly a situation that I was in until I decided that enough is enough.

This also happens with hearing. I can hear people, but not like someone talking to me. It is more like I'm eves dropping with a cup to a wall. As with the images some are clearer. Sometimes I know exactly who I hear, other times not. Sometimes I don't even know what I am hearing. Hope this helps.

Psychic and Paranormal

No you are not alone in this. It happens to me often enough to notice. My emotions, stressors, or envioronment seem to have no bearing. Its like taking a stroll eternity's flea market. Things I have never seen, objects from unidentifiable time periods, people with features I have never seen the likes of, but most certainly people.

Question have you had any instances of Clairvoyance. I have. It is not as strong as my clearcog,audience,sentience etc. It does happen. Maybe you/ we are opening up?

What I do is try to make out what it is, if i can't I let it go. Sometimes its very clear and something will be in the news or happen. A lot of time it seems like random junk, again like going through boxes in civilization's basement or something. If you find any links pertaining to this I would love to read. :) L&L

Empathy and Psychic Ethics


Healers

I don't know how much knowledge but more like experience. I have had too many experiences where I have given information freely and the person doesn't hear it. That sounds strange but they hear words but nothing registers; sometime later they might even say "why didn't you tell me?" It's like they never heard the message, I also have emails that often go astray. I got to the point that I had to stop taking it personally and recognize that Spirit was at work and this wasn't their time for the information.

Because of my experience, I tend to hold to the "don't offer unless asked policy."

Thank you Pat. This is great advice.

Thank you. I too work in human services. Hats off to you madam !!! The part about letting it ".....pass through with out judging it." is valuable information. There have been times where I have allowed empathy to anger me because I couldn't help the person and I perceived it as a taunting from the person's inner being to send this information knowing I could not help or they aren't ready for it. It made me sad.

Empathy and Psychic Ethics


Healers

Can we meet and have tea? You just seem like a wealth of empath knowledge. Ok the creepy invite is in jest, but seriously you opened my mind to some ideas about many things I have been dealing with in terms of feeling responsibility for other people's well being. :)

Also the term Soul Call I can not take credit for. It was a part of the definition of an empathic bond, to describe exactly how we know someone is crying for help. The gist is their spirit has our spirit's phone number though neither is conscious of it and may not even know each other. Since we are attuned with ourselves we do recognize that we are getting the call and answer it accordingly.

Thank you so much I have to screen shot this or print it out and carry it in my purse.

Empathy and Psychic Ethics


Healers

When receiving information for someone who has not requested a reading, like passing them in a grocery store, a co-worker, friend of a friendetc. Is it wrong to share the information?Is it a soul call from that person asking for an answer to questions that us as "receivers" are able to hear?

I would not purposely read someone without permission, but I have beenurged to write a name, or look at a persons picture, only to find waves of information coming at me about the individual at hand. What is there to do with the information if not speak of it? Sometimes I will just pray and let it go? There is such guilt either way.

Do any of you experience this?

How do you handle it?

Thank you.

Anybody else feel wrecked since 9/11?


Empath

It seems You've internalized the fear/pain of many people had about losing someone they love. You don't want to ever know that yourself. Basically you empathised with "loss" and now don't want to lose anything. It persists because you lost a little hope in humanity that day.Think about the good in yourself, the good in people you know. Sit & and reflect on times you felt good, you may find yourself doing and seeking things to recapture that. Passion for life. H.t.h. :)

A recommendation. - sit on the edge of your bed or chair, back tall, feet planted evenly on the floor breathe slowly & deeply until you feel a calming sensation. Engage with God or( your SOURCE belief) to express your concern and wiilingness to help, then based on what you feel in response that ;send thoughts of love and healing in whatever capacity it is needed. *Always take care of yourself in the process of trying to give love to others via thought/energy. :)

Feeling better


Empath

There are terrible things that have been happening in the world as of late, however I am finally starting to feel better in a sense too. I think that as Empaths we can feel things coming, so even though it may be sad to see/hear on the news I think that we get an energetic break once the bubble finally pops. We could feel the tensions mounting and the bubble stretching, so when whatever not-so-great things finally unfold its almost like a relief.

Personally it gives me an added sense of relief because so many times I thought "feeling" meant I had to save the world, when in all actually I think us as light workers and such are more of shock absorbers and consolers, in the big scheme of things. Its likely quiet a few of us are able to shake off the weight of the world from the recent wave of energy. Fall to me always feels like a season of renewal, I have noticed many people abandoning bad habbits, changing jobs, letting go of certain types of relationships, forming new ones and so forth . . . . you may be doing a self-clean. This is all just my opinion though Enjoy the good vibes.

Hi,

You are asking a perfectly rational question. What generally works for me is an assessment of my own life. I try to identify my own feelings, if I go within and can't find a single reason for why I feel the way I feel then I know they aren't mine. Example- I have panic attacks, so I have learned to identify what "my anxiety" feels like as opposed to my senses allowing someone else's anxiety to resonate with me.

About your theory. I have and sometimes question that myself. In short, no matter how many births I dream, how many deaths I literally feel, or readings I give(gave before- i just started back), there is always this reservation that one day I will see/feel/think something that isn't real and it will trigger the onset of a serious mental illness or that it may have begun and I'm too far gone to realize that I am crazy or may have a mood disorder ... It's one of those day to day things for me.

All in all I understand your point completely and there is much validity to the idea that even as Empaths, we have our own emotions with which to contend and just because they may be unpleasant doesn't mean we should write them off.

Identification..... who called/ came by/who crossed your mind? Was the feeling a build up or did it begin abruptly with no warning? Are there any words or phrases unrelated to your own life swirling around your head or visual cues that provide context clues that can give more insight on the individual having these feelings? Are there numbers that may foretell dates, or the time of day that something may happen?

** These are all things that I try to zone in on when there is an overwhelming feeling that I can't seem to shake. There was a post about differentiating other's feelings from our own and some of the more seasoned light workers may have responded with some pointers. Hope this helps. :)

Over whelming sadness


Empath

You're not alone in this. I battled for a good part of the day as well. I even felt like death. I thought it was because I was under the weather but there was an unusual queasy feeling in my stomach and sadness in my heart. When I found out he passed I figured the days events to be related.

I'm saying all of that to say .... it is very possible that you felt the impression of his last moments, the fans, his family or a projection of your own sadness upon getting the news.

I think for me it was a mixture. Consider this though there is a lot of sorrow in the world and a lot of people who don't display their sadness, this may have been an extra "sensitive" day for you because of the various sources of energy you've encountered.

Hope this helps. :)

Is anyone more/ less sensitive depending on time of day or food consumption?


Empath

Does anyone become more sensitive depending on the time of day, during different seasons or types of weather? Or do some food items like salt or chocolate seem to have a correlation to how receptive you are to the environment around you?

I ask because maybe if we are more aware of our triggers or "prompts" from the universe then we can avoid some likely pitfalls especially on days that we want to devote to our own health and well being. Maybe there's someone that didn't realize their favorite comfort food also relaxed them enough to allow them to see spirits because they stopped fighting it, or a seeing a show you hated as a child makes you angry & next thing you know its storming outside, that touching things from a certain time period began giving you past life flashes..... we all operate differently, so I was wondering what everyone else noticed

Here are some things I noticed about myself.

roaring20's -I love pictures ofthe clothes and hair( jumbo curls, up-dos & deep waves) and stage productions.

Alcohol - I tend to "see" people that are or will be of concern to those in the same room as me but rarely anything about that person there with me. I'm more vocal about warning people.

Caffeine - I feel emotions more intensely, and can hear thought fragments from people.

Sleepy - I seem to give better 1:1 readings and my medium abilities seem to flare up.

Morning 2am - 8am- I can easily detect people's general life concerns (ex; wanting love or money, children, starting a business etc.)

mid- morning/Afternoon - hear sentence fragments about people's future or answers to immediate concerns (ex; "car wash", "Pennies", "its coming", "ex-girlfriend", "tooth ache")

Evening - I detect personal objectives and how people view the world around them( ex; "people suck" "write a book" " I'm too forgiving" )

Late night 8p-3- I can feel how people are suffering(pains,body aches, cause of death), or what a persons routine mental state or general disposition is (happy, melancholy, tired etc) and small details about their life make them feel that way.

*** then there are days when I fly through discerning nothing, there are combinations days where I may drink coffee b/c I'm sleepy and they may cancel each other out and there are other days where all of these times and foods collide and make me an emotional wreck.

Hip hop, rock, jazz, jug, folk, classical, hybrid combo's of any of the aforementioned, Nas, Minnie Wallace, Gershwin, Verdi, Shanghai Restoration Project, Lupe Fiasco, One Republic, Billy Strayhorn, Coltrane ... the list goes on. I go by the artist and not the genre though I have yet to find any passion for house music. Its easy to miss out on good music by a poor representation of a whole genre, however genre benders like Cashmere Cat, The Roots, Gnarles Barkley and Lucy Pearl are great.

Sometimes even if I like an artist I cannot listen to them because I feel too much, Amy Winehouse makes me cry buckets and she had a voice that was heaven sent, as does Adele, its two different kinds of sad, but too heavy to bear most days just the same. I actually get a vibes from the person performing, so even though I may enjoy certain artist, there may be times when I literally can't listen to them.
