@mez

Sounds like there may be alot of negativity around you and you are just absorbing it. Grounding is key to help release that and get back on track. As an empath it's a daily process. My intuition has been off ever since I got pregnant, and from time to time intuition is spot on, but not like it used to be. Since I've been sleeping more and back to taking salt baths or just soaking my feet in the tub with salt it has been much better. I also havent been switching out my bracelets I made with stones and Crystal's as much to let them charge and clear out. The other thing that helps ground me is all my 50+ house plants. Since the weather here in chicago is iffy. I dont go outside much so I tend to the house plants which help.
All of that has helped and has helped me feel the baby's energy again. And restored my intuition.

New coworker triggering me


Community

@sandy

She is a toxic person and avoid as much contact with her. You called her out on her crap and she turned it on you. That right away is poor excuse of a human being and there are ALOT out like that best to avoid. And at work, keep your headphones in and just work. Eventually they move on to other people to taunt.

New coworker triggering me


Community

@sandy

I'm still awful at this and divulge a bit more than needed LOL. BUT, and there is a but. Always deflect back to them. Say it was good or you didnt do much and ask how theirs was. Let them do the talking. After a while they will forget about yours. If they want to say "oh she's boring and doesnt do anything" and it gets back to me? I just use my age or say why is it of anyone's business. *firmly*
Remember this. Whatever boundary you set for others, you have to set for yourself. I'm still trying to master this. But, here is the but, give them the chance to talk. Most of the time they don't care for you unless a chatty kathy looking for gossip.

Seeing Faces And Numbers Everywhere


Community

Sounds like we all need to focus on all the good we do have in life, and not worry about other things that go wrong. Strength relies within ourselves and not through anything else or anyone else. Yes, I understand life happens where something will bring us down and knock us over. We can get up brush it off and walk tall again.

Seeing Faces And Numbers Everywhere


Community

@ hop-daddy it is the negativity. Any way shape or form. Could be work, household issues, children, spouse, pets, friends, etc. If any one of those have any negative energy, you will see those faces. Robert Bruce book talks about the faces as negs attacks if I recall correctly. I do not think it is you that has one, but others around maybe? My parents were gone for a month and the faces were gone alot. Bad day at work, faces back. Stressing out about my plants or cat, faces back. Fight with parents or they fight with each other, faces back. It's just worthless little things probably because our vibration lowered due to stress. You stated yours was lower due to it and you are seeing it again. Seems this negativity affects are 6th and 7th chakras and we made to protect those against the faces. I think we should be discussing how to keep our vibration up in a world of negativity in order to see happier things.

Thank you for looping me in @hop-Daddy
Dreams are so fascinating! I'm still trying to figure out all of them, but getting better.
Past life dreams are quite amazing. Years ago I had several from what felt like early 1900's. Clothing, car, hairstyles. So I googled it. But I never got much anywhere and the dreams were always black and white. Long story short, I decided to get a past life regression and all those dreams were like movie clips of a past life but now it all made sense. They were significant parts of that life, and also amazing how it all played together and the missing parts. I also felt that shift happen in life that is talked about after a regression. It felt like an internal earthquake.
Since I know now those were past life, I have been able to recall several more through dreams. I have asked many times to have more dreams of my nordic warrior life and havent gotten any. All I know is I'm bigger than everyone else, was made to fight due to my size and strength. And felt bad for harming people. I eventually died by being stabbed in the back for defending a women's honor. It is the same spot on my back I had a mole bigger than a quarter that was odd shape. The mole under the skin was deeper than my Dr had thought, as I had to get it removed. Now, with the scar from that, it does look like a stab wound of a scar.

Astral projected? Lucid dreaming?


Community

This is so fascinating thank you for sharing!

Since you recognized your house it sounds like an astral projection. Growing up I was always a heavy dreamer but never dreamt in my own environment. Over the past several years I have more often. I do have alot of dreams where I am in space. Those are always interesting as I will typically hear someone I know talking to me as I look down on earth. Or I will be flying through beautiful places, and only later to learn that place exists on earth by a picture I found. It was last year I met someone who experienced the same and he said it was astral projection. I guess he practiced to do so, as where it seems we just do it. Usually before and after a projection I'll have a hard time breathing and cant move. There have been several occasions where it literally feels like I crashed back into bed. There are times after I feel very groggy and tired the next day.

Lucid dreaming is like what many already described as a way you control your dreams.

Happy to hear you are understanding the dream now :) the ladies in your neighborhood, could be your subconscious or higher self telling you how "ugly" they are inside and best to stay away from them.

Try to avoid the stigma of body if you can, unless your Dr has asked you to loose weight for health reasons, unless you are just feeling crummy and want to get in shape. That is a problem of mine as well, but I also have a medical condition that even 10-15 lbs of weight loss will great reducly some of my symptoms. Just takes 2x time more effort to lose. It also really bothers others when you are happy within yourself, as they are not. That in my experience are the people empaths should stay away from as they come with a slew of other negativity. But I think you said once before you have fitness friends? If they are making you feel that way and have made comments about your weight, maybe try to be less around them. Being physically in shape is just half the battle, the other half is mental health.

@moonstone

I have lots of crazy dreams. My friends often times like to hear them because of how bizarre they are. Dreams are usually the subconscious trying to tell you something. And seeing others, often times is how those people are a reflection you.

For example, skin. That represents you. It is the physical boundary and inner self. The skin on those people and how there skin is could be your subconscious saying you are trying to hide some harsh realities or from facing them.

Fog represents confusion, uncertainty, worries. You cannot see clearly in a certain situation and it is creating confusion, uncertainty, and worries.

Seeing yourself in your dream is you telling you something. It could also be your higher self. Given the 2 key themes I saw, skin and fog as examples. Is yourself trying to help you with the anxieties of some situation going on in life that may be preventing you on your path or direction in life.

Feeling emotional energy through movies, media, etc


Community

@tonyrn

Yes I am the same way with movies. If I'm in a theater I wonder sometimes if I'm crying because everyone else or jumping in my seat in a horror from others. At home, I will cry, or even laugh at a horror like you said.

The news is my biggest problem and I do not watch it.

Earth Angel


Community

@warden. If you really want to know more, connect with your spirit guide. Online can say many things, and some things are hogwash and others can be true. You may have to look at a few, or even YouTube videos and see what resonates.
Your guide will tell you all you need to know. Look for group meditation classes or try meditating. You can also ask for answers in dreams, if you are vivid dreamer like I am, you can get an answer. The other thing to try is automatic writing, and see if it comes out. Look for a class or group on your area that has it for practice first. I was shocked all that rubbish that cane out when I did the automatic writing, I also cried at a few things that came out. But well worth it :)

Do you get what you need out of meditation?


Community

@crystalsage

I agree with @hop-daddy on meditation. The same happens to me. So I keep meditation down to a minimum.

I have gone to group meditations and being guided through that. In those I was able to connect with my spirit guide quite easily and was given answers I long sought. I also learned my challenges in life from them along with guidance on it. My intuition has grown immensely from it, along with following it more from what my guide told me.

Otherwise, there is science backing up how effective meditation is on the brain. It can enlarge your hippocampus which will then help with memory and retention. The frontal cortex will shrink or thin out not only with age but due to stress and burnout. Those who practiced meditation have seen improvements. Not only will it help you spiritual side of the world, it will help your brain as well which then can help in other areas of life. Check out the MRi scans. It is quite fascinating.

Quieting of the mind like Michelle noted is tough. Everyone goes through this, but practice makes perfect :) there is an app for meditation, it is called insight timer. It has music. Take a bath,lay down in bed, light a candle, use a calming essential oil like lavender or frankincense, plug in the ear buds and listen to the music or sounds. And just see if you can focus on what is happening in your 3rd eye. you may start seeing glows, and colors, or shapes.

My friend is so good at meditation she will do it for 30 minutes at a time and get messages. She gave me a reading a few months back and I see how spot on she was today. Imagine what you can get for you :)

Dating another — empath + empath = bliss

@ mariposa sounds like you have a match, and energy wise match together. Over the years being here at EC, unfortunately not many have the same luck you have. The energy pulls people apart. Compared to the unaware out there, the dating pool really shrinks for an empath lol!

Sage?


Community

I used to use Palo santo in my apt in Chicago. The building was at least 100 years old. My neighbor upstairs used to sage the stairs. I agree with @hop-daddy it is a repellent for some time before it returns and best to practice every few days or week if you are attracting spirits. After all we do seem to put bug spray on routinely
outdoors. Why not use sage in our homes? There is a plant you can get, that is recommended to put it by doors called the ruda plant. Mediterraneans believe it is to help like the evil eye.

I use now essential oils, Palo Santo essential and a sage smudge spray. It works just as great and smells better than the smoke, adding lavender essential oil helps to keep the scent nice.

Keep the home clutter free if you can.

Am I being gaslighted?


Community

@zacharias

Be careful. People dont change overnight. She will portray as changed and then slowly start her tactics again. Then you will end up in the same position as this post again. When I said why post this, is because you spoke unhighly of her and then pretty much saying "all good" when it is not. You sound like my friend who complains and talks negatively of his narc girlfriend of 5 years, but will never leave due to codependency and make excuses for them. Making excuses for another is not "ok"

I really would not want to see your daughter hurt as your wife has with animals. As chesire-cat mentioned, socio paths and psychopaths....you must find the caution tape. They dont just change. Google signs of a socio path and psychopath.

@moonstone. One more thing. If you like plants maybe get a few. Plants that promote better air quality, ie, air purifiering plants you will find are some of the same types that keep the yucky negative energy out from people lol. Plants do respond well to our energy. Water them as instructed and talk to them, touch them, and tell them you love them. I get teased at work for talking to mine and I really dont care, because they are growing and healthy and i often get asked on how to revive a dying plant. Pothos are a great one. Uts other names are devils ivy and money plant. Hard to kill, but flourish so great! I have 2 at work growing like crazy already, and since switching jobs/roles at my company, they are out of control in the growing dept. My coworkers dont mind the long ivy portion overlapping in their cubicles lol. Quite a coincidence if you ask me,,,,better energy?? The pothos produce long vines, or you can have it grow up. They also regenerate roots if you cut them at the nodes and keep them in water for about 2 weeks. Aloe, bamboo, snake plants, peace lilies, aracea palms are all great too. Peace lillies are beautiful. The green is also a great color for the heart chakra, and you will find yourself loving your plants. :)

@moonshine

You have alot going on :)

Grounding is a good technique and can really help you be yourself again. You may be caught up in the whirlwind of others energies and emotions often forgetting your own. This is quite common. I would suggest to try different grounding techniques and see what works for you. I can share mine, and maybe one may strike a chord. Being in nature, surrounded or in large bodies of water, Himalayan salt baths, lavender essential oil, palo Santo essential oil, sleeping with Crystal's under my pillow, always wearing a black stone. Obsidian types seem to be the best for me. I do keep a black tourmaline on me as well and Jet. (Usually in a pouch stuff in my bra, TMi) If you live and work in a large city like I do, chicago. Nature adventures are a God send. Snowfalls and rain always feel like junk in the air is washed away and purged for a bit. I wear headphones alot and that helps, along with not looking at people in crowded downtown Chicago.

First time I tried automatic writing, omg wow!!! It was fascinating. You learn so much :) I suggest only calling upon your spirit guide (s) and Angel's and higher self. The new age may say universe, but then you are calling upon everything lol. I made that mistake once lol. Before hand really ground yourself. Talk a walk with the trees, have a salt bath, use a soothing scent, meditate for a few minutes in the bath to quite the mind. When you are ready call upon your guides and Angel's only and start to visualize the white light coming into your head and all over your body. Visualize it covering your head, your nose, your neck, moving to your shoulders, then down to your body, legs, etc. Then when you are ready write whatever comes to your mind. At first "purging" will begin, then as you continue "non sense" will start. You may get phrases pop in your mind, write it down. Images in your 3rd eye, write it down. You may start to feel tired after a few minutes, and you can say thank you to your guides and angels as you complete the writing as you have recievee the information for now.

Here are some weird things I got.
Example, The last few times I had done the automatic writing "eat leafy greens" kept coming. Naturally i thought strange, why do you want me to eat leafy greens?
So i did eat more leafy greens, for a whole month and I did feel better health wise. I think it raised my vibration too. If you look in my freezer I have 7 things of frozen spinach, lol. I try to keep a stock of it. Another example that came through was leaving my job. Of course I thought odd, it wasnt that bad. But later I found out why......oh and I did. 2018 was a not great working career. Now, my last automatic writing was a few months ago, i was told success is coming. I really hoped it was a new job, and it was. I also learned the negative people around me were holding me back, again I didnt see it until later I found out who my true friends are. @hop-daddy knows my challenges with living in Chicago, but that has come through with automatic writing several times. I'm supposed to leave this city and negative people for continued growth. Now, I'm a logically person and have to plan for it lol. I apologize for talking so much of me, just wanted to provide a few examples of how it really does work. It may help on grounding and people. May even help with your other gifts. Automatic writing may just come freely and natural for you as it does for me, and I really hope it does. Feel free to smudge your area with sage before hand, I use a sage smudge spray I got from Amazon and sprinkle Palo santo essential oil on the carpet. Scents work just as great as smoke, in my rescent experience past few months. The room energy will be clear and ready for you :)

you can even spray the sage smudge spray around you after a hard day. It helps me and I hope helps you.

Here is the sage smudge spray link...you can find it on Amazon too.

Am I being gaslighted?


Community

It sounds like you are all making excuses for the narc and gas lighters in your life. You all have the option to leave, but choosing to stay. Which makes me question, why post this?

Every empath needs to understand the dynamics of a narc and their gas lighting ways or you fall into their trap. We feel what is wrong, but yet also feel what is right. It is confusing when it comes to love.
Unconditional love is not based on conditions. Cild, money, homes, etc. It is far more than that. Tying up and hurting other creatures, is the the same psychotic tendencies that can be used on a human.

As an empath you are already seeing and feeling something is wrong. I see no reason why not discuss it, but to to then later discuss "it is all good" it is not. These people are holding any empath back to what our true purpose is, so yes, you are being gas lighted. You fell into the trap of a gas lighter. The gas lighter is taking away your confidence and power, drawing back to them. Just so one can keep quiet and do what the narc wants, and make excuses for the narc.

If you are doubting mostly you are feeling that something is wrong and what to question it. It is wrong. If you need help/guidance on this, be open to suggestions of others and their experiences.

Earth Angel


Community

@warden I'm sorry for my late response. Her book does talk about other star people etc, I didnt care for that part as much as I did care for earth Angel's. It was just a start to understanding, and from there explore more. If you go on Google, many others say the same and claim to be. You will start to see coincidences in these article pretty much saying the same. People copying and pasting and claim to be. Again, see if it all resonates.

Many will argue that Angel's cannot come to 3D as they are so high dimensional, but given our world today we need them.

There is much out there that non of us know for sure, except for what we feel deep inside. If you feel deeply this is is you, it may as well be. Keep with any type of random acts of kindness or good you are doing because you may have impacted someone so much that it changed their life and you did a purpose. Pay attention if those wings feel like there spreading on those times. I think then you will know for sure.

Am I being gaslighted?


Community

@zacharias I can give you all you need to know gaslighting, I experienced this greatly last year and with an ex fiance. First, I'm really sorry for all this you are going through. To hear about your cats and now the dog, really breaks my heart. Your wife is abusing pets.

Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation played out by another person to basically test your "sanity" The way these manipulators or narcs do this is few ways. The first and foremost is to convince you of your sanity and to second guess yourself. Which then leads to being confused, not speaking up for yourself, thinking you did wrong, apologizing for things when not your fault. Just to name a few. They tell all kinds of lies as well to keep you in this trap.

Best way to counter this is keep your confidence and vibration high. This is you wife and can call her out on her BS versus a coworker who can go to HR and say you are being discriminated against. Yes, gaslighting narcs can and will do this. Just know what you are right and keep your ground on it. Tying up a poor innocent creature such as an elderly dog for having an accident is not the solution. She could have called the vet. But dont fall for her excuses as to "teach them a lesson" type of thing, or whatever she may say. We all know pets have accidents when something is wrong....

Owls...


Community

Owls, in dreams symbolize wisdom, intuition, awareness. Since it just appeared as fast as it was gone. I would say this is a good thing to let you know you are very connected with yourself. Great dream for an empath:)

I do agree with chesire cat that this could also be your spirit animal showing itself to you. Outside of the dream world, do you find yourself more attracted to owls than other animals?

silly question: Influence on or "communication" with technology / machines or them developing a life of their own


Community

This is an interesting topic. And honestly not silly at all. Talk to a car enthusiast and see what they say :) They definitely have something there and preferences of their owner. Given you and the car are a match. More specifically as to how some cars acted up driving out of no where if you were not the owner. My father's car broke down on me so many times, I couldnt get it to start and here he comes and it starts like nothing. He did make me feel like I couldnt drive, but as we saw more of this I just said "dad your car doesnt like me" I have had this with a few friends cars and they the same to mine, typically have no known mechanical flaws. When I traded in my first car after 8 years of ownership, the car dealership told me they could not get it to go in reverse the next day to move it. I was shocked but wasn't, but the guy at the dealer said the car missed me already and quirky things like that tend to happen with some cars when traded in and then no known issues, out of his years in the business. I still miss that car. I found her on a car forum, the new owner talked much about the car issues but never issues on the transmission.

Tonight we have ice rain and the roads were icy. I was a bit nervous driving as I felt some sliding, and I have an SUV now. A few times I felt like I couldnt move the steering wheel as she was driving and said I got this. That sounds silly too I know, and this car doesnt have self driving abilities like the others and she's 2 years old. I have many other bizarre car stories.

This is fascinating thank you for sharing. I have heard this many times before on a positive outlook promoting better health. As I'm sure we all have heard how tip top healthy people pass young. I remember as a kid hearing stories in school how children who were sick got better in hospitals from watching funny shows.

Recently I read the power of meditation to curing burnout and stress, which then lead me to reading and seeing brain scans of how meditation alters brain structure.

It is really fascinating to me how powerful the brain truly is and how much of it we still do not understand, like the subconscious.

Essential Oils


Community


I was looking into essential oils as currently I'm only using lavender oil for stress.  Been reading on the benefits of them for grounding and keeping negative energy away.  Anyone else have success with essential oils?

I came across this article on how Palo Alto essential can help with this.  I used to burn the Palo Alto when I lived alone to clear out my home after deep cleaning and/or when it just felt heavy in the home.  Currently I cannot so I was looking into another methods :)

My intent is mainly to make a lotion like I have with lavender at work.  Or even as a spray.

Do you know the spirit visiting you?


Community


Had a newbie question.  How do you know which spirit is visiting you?  How do you know if it's a family member or not?  Or is this spirit guide?   During the holidays it felt alot, but not like deceased loved ones.  I've heard whispers, and things said, walking up the stairs, feeling them neat, and nearly always I dont recognize the voice.  If it is a deceased family member, how do you know?  I have been taking guesses on this one, and take pictures now where I'm feeling the energy or guided by my cat.    (Have captured a coupke unique photos)  

If you do talk to them, how do you do it?  And do you ask for protection b4 hand?  If its family, great.  Again, sorry for the newbie questions.  :)

@ stefficat11
Do you have a pet?

I totally understand what you are going through as I went through it. If you ever want to talk about this offline, you can PM here. I was engaged to a man who I thought at that time destroyed me. I lost everything. Moved back in with my parents with $100 in my pocket, gained 50 lbs, furniture gone, any other "stuff" gone, heart shattered, confidence gone, and no job. He was emotionally abusive and got physical once. I had gained some weight over the years (which I learned now was the PCOS) and he would call me fatty, porky, fat princess. And amongst others. He cheated, and the list just goes on. For years I could not get over this and blamed myself, and I also felt it was too late to start over and getting past my time for kids. I finally saw a therapist who discussed what an empath was. I always had this my whole life, just never knew what it was and I thought others had it.

Back to this ex of yours. He clearly has issues on him and put it on you. My ex did that all the time. No responsibility or any kind of accountability did they take on their own "stuff" It's them not you, and your worth is beyond it. As an empath, these situations due seem to be more difficult, but can overcome. :)

It took me many years to get passed it and one day, no joke, I woke up and said enough. My worth is not based on this man and it is about me, not him, and I refused to live life or try to rebuild it with him in the shadows. I knew who I really was deep down, and this wasn't me. I then listened to my therapist and learned alot of being an empath, found this group, learned about cutting chords, etc. Bottom line, you will have so much more in life than you would with him. My confidence came back the more I learned about being an empath and who I really am.
I learned how to do things alone, as you can imagine my "friends" left me to rot, as how I saw it. I was no use to them that broken. It gave me time to myself to learn this whole new world. When I got better, they came back, sucked me dry and left.
This cycle happened alot. Rinse and repeat. Then another phase recently of going about this alone happened. However, that is when I learned I'm not "really" alone. Neither are you. You have guides and Angel's, and everyone her at EC. I also have my cat, who is still with me through all that. He has had multiple times to run away lol, but he always runs into my arms :) Now, I have things in life I want to do, and if someone comes along, great join the ride! But if they drop one ounce of negativity, point them to the door. Same for any friends.
Finding others like us that vibrate high and feel alot, are out there. I have picked up a few on this ride of life, and you will too :) I'm happy with those quality of friends :)

Your current partner...


Community

@ aiden I'm sorry I do not have any great advice on this as I'm single lol. for a period of 5 years I dated. I met about 100 men from online dating. I had met some where that attraction was so strong, but nothing ever came out of it. There were many that I met that were broken too, and after experiencing a point in my life where I was broken and working on me to fix it, I wasn't up to fixing them. Some of those broken ones got really mad when I told them I didn't want to see them anymore. One was so bad he kept sending me harassing texts. There was one man I had met and right away it was the whole "where have you been my entire life I've been looking for you" there is quite a story on that one I will not get into now.
I'd really like to know sometimes of those many I met where the connection felt great they would just leave or do the ghosting. I 9ften wondered wonder what was wrong with me that they didnt like me. Now I could care less. I'm fine being single and going to enjoy life, and if I met someone come join the ride of life.

Charging crystals


Community

@hop-daddy you may need a bigger piece of selenite to recharge your other Crystal's. The Crystal's have to sit on it. I read amethyst can as well, but you need a larger geod of amethyst to place them in the center. Etsy has many slabs or bowls that they sell for recharging,if a local shop doesnt have it. I got the bowl for the jewelry at the shop here as salt water will tarnish the jewelry. I was getting headaches from some of the jewelry and agree that sun and moon is the best. The past few days it's been cloudy again.
I also read about putting selenite in each window after clearing your home as it helps keeps spirits out.

Driving


Community

@Kate could be a few things going on, what popped in my head reading this. Past life and spirit.

I've read a few people have adversions to driving if they were hurt by a vehicle in another life. Or basically anything that could have caused it to carry over this life.

Spirit guides and your Angel's are all there with you. They are most likely communicating to you, and you are listening which is good. Keep listening and it will be easier and less stressful driving. You can ask them to slow it down a bit and try some testing to make sure you understand. How I did this, was by asking "should I stay in this lane or go, which is the faster/slower lane" you will then start to feel if you should stay in your lane or not. Later it will be more clear of getting messages/signs to slow down or just wait. Living in the city of Chicago, well drivers dont care if you have to wait 5 seconds as your guided to, but I didnt care for them either lol.
I have an angel hanging on my rear view mirror as they saved me when my car spun out of control on the highway. I always ment after that day to get one, but never found one that felt right. Then one day a coworker gave me one as a gift and as you can imagine I nearly cried. It was perfect.
I do also agree the energy of other drivers can cause some anxieties when driving. When I have this, just be more cautious or go another route if you can :)

Charging crystals


Community

Thank you everyone! :) I have 2 good spots where they get great sun and moonlight. With winter here, there are too many cloudy days and I just thought to try this and see who else may have or even if it was a good idea, which it is not lol. I would smudge them, but here at my parents, my dad wouldn't understand. Although my mother has been surprising me. The plants are in an area in my room that get sun as well and the rose quartz are clearing out nicely. My friend wants to try the rose quartz in 2 of his plants that are not doing well and I picked up a few for him. I can get you updated on their progress :)
I did go out and get a selenite bowl today. I have added a himalyan salt lamp to my bedroom as well.

How Ghosts Impact Us


Community

@hop-daddy Thank you for sharing this wonderful article. I've recently determined my grandpa is visiting frequently. He loved this house the most out of all his children, and wanted to stay here, but his eldest daughter had different in mind. I believe I caught his shadow in a photo. When looking at old photos, the features are correct to the shadow and photos. He was here tonight and I told him that I love him, seems he thinks this is his home and I'm in the bedroom he used to stay in. His son visits too, which was my favorite uncle.
As for random spirits, telling them to go away works best. Family seems to stick around it seems no matter what.

Feeling Creepy Crawlies

@hop-daddy are these the scuttlers?

This was another article I found, if relevant. Could be hogwash, you tell me with your experience.

Giant bugs/spider types? Looks like they dislike smoke and smokey quartz may help and candles. As if we dont have enough headache to keep normal bugs out of the house, now these things from the astral lol. Would be nice to know if these are things we are bringing back from the astral in our dream time to our homes. Maybe try smoky quartz bracelet or under your pillow at night, and smudge the entire house.

My apologies if this sounds silly.  Has anyone used visualization to reset and charge your stones and Crystal's with white light?   I recently tried this a few times, and although I can feel the stones energy come back, I'm left with a headache.  Although, it is quite amazing to see how much they pick up ;)    I'm assuming I need more practice as I either just absorbed what my collection had or I forgot that that collection I had has alot of mixed energies Happy

(Off the subject, placed rose quartz in 2 of my plants and they are growing like crazy.)

Can spirits make you taste and smell?


Community

@warden is this still occurring? Do you or your b/f have a family member that passed that was a smoker? Or could it where you live a fire broke out some years ago?
My friend occasionally smells cigarette smoke which we've said it's her mother. Later she'd dream that night about her mother saying she was ok to my friend.
I would smell smoke to, but as a heavy smoker at that time I just assumed it was me lol. Sometimes those were the nights my cat would go off and play with something that was not there. Then I noticed this was a different cigarette smell, and that it was my uncle. He loved cats and playing with them.
I agree that this smoker spirit is just trying to communicate and probably harmless. If you do ask for protection from your guides and Angel's and higher self only to see if can come through that way and what images may start popping in. If you do not feel comfortable, I understand as well.

Sound therapy, who's tried it?


Community

@zacharias 16 cats! I love it :) If I could I'd have multiple pets. Do you feel a difference when multiple are sitting by you and purring?

I struggle grounding and shielding at times when I'm in downtown. I've been off all week for the holidays and I've been feeling so much better. I also havent gone anywhere except to the store with my mom. Retail stores are harder for me and resort to online shopping, I always thought it was the energy of shoppers and people who work there. Obviously those places are filled with barcodes and sewn in sensors.

I bought a new cell phone and the first few days I had major headaches. I turned the blue light filter on and it went away. A few friends thought I was nuts for putting it on as the clarity is not so much anymore and how dim I have the screen, it just causes headaches to me. Anyone else experience this with cell phones or even computer monitors?

Sound therapy, who's tried it?


Community

Sound therapy is great. Recently went to a group session where the instructor used a venus gong. Prior times to this class she's used tuning forks, tibetan singing bowls, drums.

@zachacarias Thank you for mentioning crystal! Forgot about this one. As a kid we used to use our parents crystal and run our fingers around the rim until we got yelled at lol.

I to am a fan of music as well that raises vibration and gets me movin, like dancing.

The chakra lady I used to see would chant. She highly recommended this to get energy moving...

https://blog.sivanaspirit.com/open-the-chakras-with-sound/

Do you have a cat?? A cats purr can produced anywhere from 25-150 mhz. It is there way to self heal and has shown how it can heal us, their humans through vibrations. If you have a cat, and kitty is being insistent to lay on you and purr, allow it. Mine is very intuitive and will nuzzle his big self across my chest and throat and just purr. He just seems to know when I have blockages in my heart or throat chakra. If my intuition is off, he will wrap his body around my head and purr. This isnt a quick fix either, it can take an hour to days. Our fur babies loves us as much we love them and want to help :)

Seeing Faces And Numbers Everywhere


Community

The negative images may not correspond to you personally,but what is around you. If things at work are getting wild and coworkers are stressed and negative in life it may rub off. Same with any friends and family. The holidays. So much residual energy from angry shoppers in stores who are stressed. Where you live, I used to live there to and remember how this time of year many natives didnt like all the snowbirds arriving lol. When things at work were really bad with the narc, it's all I saw for months. These do come back every so often, and now I'm trying to pay attn to what is around me as to why it's happening. I have seen the witches, skulls, angry looking people shifting to what some may say is the devil. I really doubt it's you, and just what others around are carrying.

The positive, in my opinion, is like trying to un bury yourself through the layers of negative. It's exhausting lol. Whatever works for you to do that to bring it out, try it. I feel you have alot of positive in you. Me, exercising, nature, reading funny memes,funny shows, eating very well, good music, all help.
But I do love wrapping myself up in my own positivity and seeing pleasant images. This helps shield against negative for a bit and others emotions. Just this tends to sometimes draw more negative nancies who need help that cant help themselves lol. I'm guessing spirits that need help moving on as well, are being attracted to it. Not 100% sure on this one yet. Never ending cycle on that one and as you can imagine exhausting.lol

I took this week off to unbury myself from the layers of negative on me, b4 I start my new job. As well to get on better positive habits. 2019 goals :)

I have read that too, stop when you see those numbers and what is going on in your thoughts. This is your spirit guide or Angel's trying to communicate with you. Same for ear ringing or flashes of light in minds eye or from the corner.

Friendship - finding it incredibely difficult to find friends that are "on the same wavelength"


Community

That is understandable, if the town is small then everyone knows lol. I live in Chicago and everything is available, I dont take advantage of it as the energy and people is overwhelming. Also, big cities have many frauds out here looking to make a quick buck. Really have to allow your intuition to guide you to these places.
I've met many giving people in life that are bitter,not just empaths. Those friends that are quite capable of giving back usually are selfish about it and dont want to be bothered by it. They are all to "busy" They are not like those in society who cannot help themselves, but at least those individuals say thank you and are truly grateful. Example, a shelter I volunteered to cook meals for. 5 of us made over 30 plates of dinner and many had tears of joy and full of thanks. It's quite a shame on our friends and family who keep taking when they have the means themselves to fix if you ask me. :)
Art class is great!!! Probably feels very positive in their when everyone is distressing and utilizing creative abilities. Even if it is for a few months, something else may pop up. Intuitive painting is offered here and seems of interest to many. You may even want to start one like that if you can in your city. :)

Once I got past the loneliness or being alone it was fine. Sometimes, I'd rather alone than going out. It is hard to talk to others when I have many unanswered questions about being an empath and other things. Coming to this group has greatly helped. There is a group or a class I go to with a friend, with other gifted individuals. Not so much empaths. That group and this forum is usually enough to suffice my social interaction.

Like hop-daddy said, I also feel like I'm only peoples friends when they need something or help. When I need it, nothing but silence. And since we are experienced at handling things ourselves and figuring it out, then the friends flock like seagulls. Same thing happens to meet at work.

Seeing Faces And Numbers Everywhere


Community

@hop-daddy I see faces too. I'll be honest I didnt read all the comments lol. Just scrolled through and I did see yours about how the mind is wired. But like you, I only if its subconscious. The same applies to signs and synchronicities, which I'll stop here :)

In objects and in minds eye I see them. They are usually not pleasant. Actually just a few weeks ago I saw a an angry skull on my back brush and wouldn't use it for days when I had to shower. Lol. I am not a fan of those Persian style rugs with their intricate designs as I see many evil faces. When it started happening when I'd fall asleep, I thought at first I was being negative and wake up asking myself where did this come from and how am i thinking negative things like this. They to were men's faces, rarely ever a woman or a child. Sometimes animals that I dont find pleasant. Their faces would then shift like they were deteriorating to a skull or something evil. Or the flashcard effect. At first I thought it was past life related of all the people I knew.

I'm noticing now this happens when there is to much negativity in the air that is impacting me and possibly lowering my vibration. Maybe the same for you and others.

I do see positive too. For example, Heart shapes , all over for a period of time few years ago. I started taking pics. If I look down randomly, I would find a heart shape rock or a random melted snow area in a shape of a heart. Again, all subconscious and not looking for it. 1:11 and 11:11 or 1111 or 111, all over during this time. I have a nice heart shape rock collection due to this:) Few months back I started seeing those numbers again, and this time it was flower shapes. (Not actual flowers) I'm guessing my vibration must have been higher. As heart shapes and flowers are all positive shapes/objects to me. I'd see these same shapes when I'd go to sleep and close my eyes. Do you have this too? Positive images when you are feeling positive or positive in the air?

Flashes of light is another that i see out the corner of my eye and when i go to bed. I've read that these are angels making their presence known to you. If you have this as well.

Dealing With Health Issues? Your Empathy Is Likely To Blame.


Community

Stomach issues here too. I always have pepcid ac on me. Went to a GI dr and he found nothing wrong! Lol. Later I learned of hormonal issues that is causing the troubles, I learned what to eat and it's better. My stomach is the best when I cook for myself. But at the end of the day in empath world, not even pepcid ac or staying away from certain foods help. Now if I'm around negative people and narcs, or anything negative in the air....my stomach just churns and burns. Best at that point to just walk far away from them if you can.

I have sinus issues as well. There are days when out of no where my sinuses just flare up in a snap. Ill start coughing uncontrollably
from post nasal drip from it. And there are no known allergens around me that would cause an immediate flare of congestion except people. It can happen at work, at a party, the store, discussions that may have negativity. I have a cat, who I'm allergic too, and he doesn't cause my sinuses to get like that so fast. The sinuses are a never ending battle and I'm allergic to sudaphedrine.

With sinuses, this is interesting, my friend and I were talking about her son and how he talks of a spirit in their basement and other things this gifted child randomly talks about. Both of our sinuses spontaneously got clogged at that same time and we were blowing our noses, and of course I was coughing it up too. As soon as we went downstairs the congestion gone for her. I not so much.

Overall, I'd have to say best remedy is stay away from Chicago! Lol. I am always better in less populated areas. Even in those smaller areas I will get a small punch in a gut or the face, but once removed I'm ok. Crystal's and stones help greatly and I really use those until I can better shield myself. Grounding and cleansing help that too.

All this has gotten worse due to working with a narc the past year. Seems lately every weekend I'm sick. The minute my body, mind, and soul feel free, the body just gets sick. Come Sunday night I'm better.

Does it seem like Empathy is disappearing? You're not imagining it!


Community

@chesire-cat thank you for posting these. I've read man articles about Facebook not any on video games.

Mostly what I saw about Facebook, that usually popped up on Facebook on narcissm was the selfies years back. But all correlates to the article you shared. As later the articles talk about how many friends,how many times a day you post, etc. Guess they got it all together now lol. Few years back it got really annoying the amount of selfies certain individuals were posting on a daily basis. Now it's a norm.

What irrates me with FB is the lies and this dual personality. Making one appear as one is not in real life. Making comments that are exact opposite of what they told me prior.
