Hi. John Campbell here and recently I have been told that I am an Empath, HSP, a Clairvoyant and a Growing Psychic. THATS A LOT!!!!! Now before I get roasted, everyone has told me that I am in an awakening phase at 42!!!!!! I have no idea what of these are factual but I did the "Empath Test" and passed with flying colors. I want to learn and grow and one day be able to help others the way I am hoping to get help myself. A little about me. I am a Former US Marine that did a total of five tours between Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo. I lost my mom suddenly at the age of 19 and over the next 7 years I lost both sets of Grand Parents. At night sometimes I hear speaking (really fast talking), I get other peoples headaches and emotions. I didnt know this was one, but I carry almost all of my weight in my mid section. Almost everyone I know comes to me for guidance and there have been a few recent times in which I would say or think something and within 30 seconds I would see it or hear it. Yesterday, I said to a buddy of mine, "your killing me smalls" and when I walked out of my office, there was a guy wearing that shirt!!!!!!!!!!!! For the most part of my life I felt that I never fit in, even in my beloved Marine Corps. I can watch a old episode of NCIS and still get very emotional and being in huge crowds is very much an overload. Any and all help is greatly appreciated and I am so excited to see where these gifts take me. Semper Fi

Hi John, I'm glad to see you here...A BIG WELCOME!

I like the phrase, "You're killing me Smalls," that's from a very good movie for boys [and this gal], "The Sandlot."

Yeah, I feel other's pain too. Even if another is describing an old wound or one belonging to someone else, I have to tell them, "Stop!"

We recently had another veteran join here....I hope you two talk. I can't imagine what it would be like to be a soldier and an empath.

Interesting about carrying weight around the middle; there's a chakra at the solar plexis and people put out and receive much energy there....I guess the extra padding could be a protective barrier.

Thanks again for joining; it's great to have more men join...

Thank you so much Michelle. Do you by chance know who this other Veteran is?

Welcome. I don't come here so often these days; but I love your attitude. People struggle with aspects of being an empath, but I see it mostly in positive terms. At least it explains a lot. I need to be more picky and choosy about whose energies I am around and how much I tune into them.

I'm interested: as an ex-marine, are you aware of Q Anon? (Not a 'conspiracy theory' I can assure you ... or send you to the proofs that show you).

I would seriously struggle to be in the situations you have as an empath. However, seems you have a positive attitude, which is awesome.

Welcome! From your post I can tell that you are someone who has a zest for life. Thank you for sharing all that nice energy!

It seems that most empaths are born that way and experience psychic and paranormal things from a young age. But in recent years we're seeing a lot of empaths awakening later in life in their 30s & 40s. This is a curious trend, and that's the case for me as well. Do you remember any special experiences in your teens and 20s where you showed empath signs back then but maybe unknowingly blocked it? I'm always curious about that.

Quick note on the stomach thing. I also carry some weight around my stomach, but it mostly shows from bloat. I deal with constant sensitive stomach issues. At least part of that is empath related. The solar plexus chakra is in our upper stomach and it is our emotional center. Perhaps a better name for an empath is to call us emotional empaths. And that's because we are excellent detectors, magnets, and analyzers of emotional energy. But in that process we absorb other people's emotional energy through our solar plexus and that causes stomach ache and stomach issues. Being slightly overweight also seems to be a common empath theme. I think part of that is emotional eating as a way to try to cope with some of that unwanted emotional energy through the fun of food. And then it is said that carrying a little extra weight actually protects empaths from harmful energy.

Two questions for you that were probably not on your empath quiz. But I ask everyone I can as I'm taking an informal poll. Do you experience any stomach issues or stomach soreness? And do you have trouble falling asleep and/or staying asleep at night?

I have to take meds to sleep. Sorry for the delay of getting back. Work has been chaotic!!!! No stomach soreness though. I just wish I knew what gifts I have so I can help others the way you all do.

@lancemiramar You've been thru so much. Life is religion; you gain personal experience thru living. And, many times, it is getting thru our trials that become our greatest strengths, which we use to bolster others up....💖

@lancemiramar:

It takes time to figure yourself out. And it's hard for someone like me to say if you do this or that you'll end up seeing your true powers. It's different for everyone. And everyone has a totally different set of skills and subskills. For me I've experienced that over time some skills present and strengthen while others weaken. I can't figure out any rhyme or reason to it. I think a good place for you to start is with consistent meditation. That will help keep your energy balanced. And the feedback from quite a few empaths is that consistent meditation helped trigger new skills while strengthening others. If you're new to meditation and have trouble calming your mind (which is common), then I recommend going to YouTube and close your eyes while listening to a 30 minute binaural beat segment. It's very calming and soothing and helps me slip right into a meditative state.
