Energy and Consciousness


New Age

I often tip-toe around these words when giving an intuitive reading. 

I'll say "your energy" when I am describing what emanates from their physical body.  I include their physical state of being, stored memories and subconscious or soul-level aspirations.   

Then I'll say "your consciousness" to refer to their conscious thoughts.

In a reading, I will often find conflicts between their "energy" and their "consciousness".  And most of my work is to reveal and help reconcile these differences, so that both horses pull the cart in the came direction.

But when ever I used the word energy, I feel like it's slightly off.  Haven't really found anything else that felt better though.  So I keep it as my catch all, like a giant purse!

Gratitude for I Can Feel Your Pain


Empath

Matthew Elsey:

Ahh I'm sorry I didn't mean to upset anyone Elise. Reading my post back, it is a little raw. You gave me the confidence to write the truth of how I felt.

Your comment 'Its hard being like us' made me cry.

Judith Orloff's book looks very interesting thanks for recommending it. So_exhausted.

Love Matthew 

Those were GOOD TEARS!  I love raw, it's super healthy ;)

Hi @moonshine,


I find that Empaths often feel inspired to help others, which is why we have such great support available both here and in our facebook group.  


To answer your question: I started this web site in 2007 from the same sentiment.  But back then, when you googled "empath community", nothing showed up. 


Also, since I had tentatively started writing about my "real life" experiences as an Empath (as opposed to the web site about science fiction characters), I was more visible online and people often contacted me to get help. 


Being a single mom with 2 jobs, I realized quickly that even though I REALLY wanted to, there was not enough hours in the day to take care of my son, my jobs and hundreds of Empath queries. 


One days it occurred to me that it would be awesome to connect the more novice Empaths  (those with side effects or untamed skills - what I refer to as an Impaired Empath ) to the more experiences ones (i.e Balanced Empaths).


At the time, I was struggling financially so I used a free platform to create the Empath Community.  


For the next 6 months, it was mostly me talking to myself lol.  I posted forum threads on cool things I found, on my bourgeoning Empath Survival Program, etc.


Then as the site climbed in the google results (keep in mind it had to "jump" over all the science fiction sites in order to become "relevant"), it started getting busier.  


By the time we reached 10 000 users, my "free time" was consumed by all the "moderating" that comes from owning a web site.  I had to start deleting old accounts to avoid paying a hefty monthly fee, put out flame thread where members argued, filter out spammers (always hard), approve new users, keep the site from tipping over from too many users, make sure the email notifications didn't go into spam folders, investigate and fix technical problems, respond to questions about how the site worked, etc.  


Since I'm a software engineer, I'm also technically oriented. I knew "how" to do all these things but it was a lot of efforts.


Then in 2011, the free platform I was using got sold and they started charging $25/month for hosting.  By that time, I had a LOT of users and moving to a different platform was going to be both expensive and time consuming.  I looked into several alternative but none of them were maintenance free and I just didn't have the time to apply patches, deploy new versions and test everything, which is inevitable in free platform like joomla or drupal.


So I paid the monthly fees.  Which increased over time to reach $49/month.  Over the next 6 years, I tried to raise money to pay these hosting fees with fund raising activities, a Paypal donate button, a gift shop, advertisers, click through ads and a more that I forgot by now.  I received some AMAZINGLY generous donations that covered a total of about 2 years of hosting. All the money I received went straight to pay hosting fees.  But I had to pay taxes on those donations, so I got only part of the total amount...


I did not (and never will) want to charge a fee for users of the Empath Community. 


For most of its life, I paid for the hosting myself.  


In 2017, the platform I had been using told "small users" like me that they were not going to support us anymore.  I was crushed, honestly.  I lived in denial about it for a long time lol.  But eventually, I started to look for another platform which I eventually found (jamroom).  The hosting fee was similar and they were willing to help me migrate 10 years of users and forum posts with an installation fee.


I had to spend hundreds of hours in css, html, forms, installing modules, etc.  But here we are, 12 years later and the Empath Community is still standing.  


In 2017, another author (more known than me) started to use the very same terms that had placed me at the top of the Google results: "Empath Community" and :"Empath Survival Program".  Following this, I lost about 90% of my online visibility and the number of Empath who found their way here dropped drastically...


All that to say:  it takes a lot time, energy and often money to sustain a web site. It can almost be very hard on the heart to have these ups and downs.



That said, you can create a free web site with Facebook.  You can also decide how much energy you want to spend on this endeavor before you get on the boat :)


I think the more resources we have out there for Empaths, the better.


But I would also like to suggest that by being right here (or any other existing Empath web site), you are using your PRECIOUS energy helping someone, a real person who has a burning question right now, instead of spending it building web pages and fighting spammer.


No matter what you choose to do, THANK YOU for your contribution to our Empath world.


In love (seriously, I do love you all)


Elise

The Empath Experience- An Empath Physician's View


Empath

Thanks so much Bill :) 

I know I technically own the copyright.  I also think I would likely win a law suit. 

But the determining factor is this one: it would be detrimental to my happiness.  I need to conserve my time and energy to work my 2 wonderful jobs and be the best mom I can be to my son. 

At the end of the day, I have nothing left for a lawsuit.  

The support I have received from the EC members has put a healing balm over my broken heart. 

It will heal.

in love

The Empath Experience- An Empath Physician's View


Empath

Hop Daddy:

I stumbled upon this article by accident. And I found it interesting and wanted to share it as it touched on a lot of the discussions that often pop up on this community forum. It's a good read, and very informative. And I found it interesting that the author is both an M.D. and an empath. Since traditional medicine doesn't really recognize the empath reality, I found the author's perspective pretty interesting. 

https://www.consciouslifestylemag.com/empath-sensitive-person-guide/

Update: I really liked the detail on what the linked author provided and think that many of you will find it relevant and helpful. Unfortunately, as Elise noted below, the author appears to have completely plagiarized Elise's own prior published work. While enjoying the article, please know that all the credit for the content needs to be given to Elise.

Thank you so much.  Made my cry...

The Empath Experience- An Empath Physician's View


Empath

Thanks C. Cat! I'm still here :)

I could try to sue her but that would result in: 

1) Financial compensation, which is not meaningful to me.  I didn't publish to get rich.

2) An injunction to prevent her book from being further published, so she does not profit from my work.  Which also goes against my intention to reach as many Empath as possible with my message.

Either way, it's not aligned with my soul's purpose and it won't mend my broken heart.  And tears stream down whenever I think about this hijacking of my message, so I'd be a mascara mess in court!!!

When people google Empath Survival or Empath Experience, they find her book, not my web site.  But at least they find *something*.  

Thanks for your emotional support.

Hi,


When you state your current choices at the end of your post (keep doing the same or completely stop), I feel that neither of them are the right fit for you. 


I do feel that you have to do something or you'll emotionally bleed out, without being in a situation where you can receive the same kind of helpful care you provided.  If you burn out, you won't be able to help anyone at all, not even yourself.


The energy drain is drastic right now.  However, I feel that cutting off contact would create such an intense wave of guilt that it would be also very expensive, energy wise.  


When stated this way, it looks like you only have "bad" options.


My suggestion would be to start having a plan for this "energy expense", just like you would manage a financial budget. 


For example, set a time limit for:


1) How often you have contact with him (of any kind, including txt).  Once the limit is reach, just postpone answering until tomorrow. 


2) How long you interact (like phones calls are no longer than 30 minutes).



My last suggestion is actually related to being an Empath...


3) Use techniques to disengage from his energy when you are not directly interacting with him, such as Turning Down the Volume  .  This would avoid the energy drain that comes from being tuned into his energy.


I hope this helps!

Hi,


It's hard for empaths to sort out their feelings, since they feel just like ours...



Grounding is an essential Empath skill but it might not help here since the foreign feeling IS there.  You are feeling it.  So when you're grounding, you're just paying even more attention to that feeling inside you.



A quick way to sort this out that I use all the time is Turning Down the Volume .  It's the first technique in the Empath Survival Program .  By turning down what you pick up from other people (do NOT try to turn it off), what's left behind is yours.  



Ironically, it solves two problems: 1) Identifying feelings that are not yours 2) Preventing external feelings from affecting you.



I hope this helps!
