I live in western Washington state on tribal land. I have seen some interesting things in this area but have never seen a skin walker here, nor have I heard of any recent sightings. After doing a little research, I can honestly say that I hope I never do either!

Hello Storm and welcome!

It is possible you are getting nauseous and uncomfortable around certain people because they are energy vampires (people who feed off of your energy and seem to just suck the life right out of you) or they could even just be having a bad day and are feeling exceptionally negative. When I feel like that around certain people, I steer clear of them. Read the Empath Survival Guide. There is a lot of useful info in there about grounding techniques. It helps a lot.

educator,

I have seen the Brains on Trial video before and I do understand the science. It is quite fascinating.

I was curious regarding your question in your post about how has empathy directly affected our lives. Do you mean as how it feels for us to show empathy toward someone or to have empathy shown toward oneself?

I don't like to post a lot of personal stuff on forums, but if you have any specific questions, feel free to message me. I would be more than happy to answer them for you and help you with your inquiry as I find this subject very interesting.

So is the purpose of the empathic/psychic reading of the person on trial to determine the state of mind at the time of the crime? Such as; was it premeditated, accidental, crime of passion, do they feel remorse for what they have done, are they lying...That kind of thing?

Unfortunately, I cannot think of any scientific proof that could be applied to empathic abilities as most of us cannot explain how we feel what others feel or how we just "know" things.

educator456,

It appears to me as if you are trying to apply the Daubert standard as a means to establish judicial conduct in either introducing or discrediting of expert testimony from an empathic/psychic individual in an existing or upcoming criminal case/cases. Or have a judge who is considering allowing this type of testimony or is very opposed to it and you are trying to establish the proof needed to validate or discredit the judge in question.

Honestly, I dont believe you can apply the Daubert standard to what we feel or perceive from our gifts.

The standards for Daubert are:

  1. Empirical testing: whether the theory or technique isfalsifiable, refutable, and/or testable.
  2. Whether it has been subjected topeer reviewand publication.
  3. The known or potential error rate.
  4. The existence and maintenance of standards and controls concerning its operation.
  5. The degree to which the theory and technique is generally accepted by a relevant scientific community

Number five alone would exclude empathic ability from the Daubert standard that is currently acceptable, not to mention standards and controls of such.

Hello! New here and looking for a little advise.


Empath

I was finally able to figure out what was going on and why my defenses were so low. I was dealing with a couple of very stressful situations that were draining all of my energy and affecting my ability to protect myself. The negativity and stress from those situations I was dealing with for the last couple of months seemed like it was acting like a beacon for negative people. Since my original post, both situations have been resolved and I have been feeling a lot better. I have also been doing a lot of learning and getting some coaching from another member on here and it has helped quite a bit. I no longer feel like I have to constantly shield myself and I am working on growing my abilities.

I am so glad I came across this site, I have been learning so much from everyone and it is a great feeling to know there are others out there like me. Thank you to all who have offered their advice and support, it is greatly appreciated!

Denise,

I am an ENFP as well and while I also very much enjoy my solitude because it allows me to ground myself, I find myself very energized after spending time with positive people or even being in crowds that have a positive vibe. I interact with a lot of people on a daily basis for my job and I actually really enjoy it. I guess that is where the E comes into play for me.

I had to take the test as part of a team building class at a previous job and it said I am ENFP. I have taken it a couple of times since and it is always ENFP. I felt the results were pretty accurate and fit me well.

Thank you Dan!

I am working on the zip-up technique. I think it will help a lot.

I have heard of the "conduit" method before and I will be working on this also as I believe that this may ultimately work the best for me.

Thanks Denise! I will do some searching and see if i can find a "zip up" video. Sounds like it could be quite helpful.

Empath

Thanks for the reply. I am working on being more abrupt with people that start doing that. What did you do to get rid of the negative energy until you were able to defend yourself well?

And yes, I agree, who just spills their life story to someone they hardly know? Being somewhat reserved myself I never understood how some people can do that.

Hello! New here and looking for a little advise.


Empath

Hello everyone!

I am new to this site, but not new to being an empath. I have been aware of it for about 15 years. I embrace my gift and am usually able to protect myself fairly well from negativity but lately I have been having an issue and I am not sure how to deal with it or why it is happening now. I am hoping some of you may have some suggestions that could help me out.

I know that we are often used as other peoples dumping ground for emotional baggage and I have been pretty good at protecting myself from the negativity that comes from it but in the last few months it has been happening more and more frequently and it is now a problem for me.

People I have known for many years to people I have just met seem to want to unburden themselves to me and it happens on a very regular basis now, where before it was only once in a while. Before it began happening so frequently, I could easily deal with it but I have not been able to do this so easily now. I dont know if I am just worn down from having to keep my defenses up or what but I cant seem to control it anymore and keep people from unloading on me. It is getting worse and it is having a very negative effect on me. It has gotten so bad that my SO (he is not empathic) has even noticed and asked me Why do people always do that to you? Its like you have a big sign on your back that says free therapy.

I am a social person and enjoy meeting new people and helping people and my job also requires me to interact with many people on a daily basis. I actually enjoy being able to meet people for the first time and just know things about them because it fascinates me. However, my recent negative experiences make me want to crawl in a hole and hide. I am now very wary of meeting new people because I am afraid of being dumped on and have been avoiding family and friends for the same reason. I dread going to any social gatherings and even the grocery store because of this. The really bad part is, I can just look at someone, whether I know them or not, and warning bells go off in my head if there is potential that they are going to emotionally dump on me. If this happens, I try to politely excuse myself and leave, but that isnt always possible.

I guess my questions are: does anyone have any tips on how to keep others from doing this aside from being rude and just telling them Im not their shrink? Also, I am wondering if anyone had ideas as to why this would start happening so frequently when it had not been a problem before? Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated!
