Is it just me or are the birds acting differently


Community

I agree that normal kinda sucked.

I don't it makes you a bad person to want to keep the sense of calm that has strangely come out of all this panic.

I just want my rock shop and my favorite karaoke bar to open back up and I'm good.

How's the energy


Community

That sounds a bit like DBT. It's an approach to therapy that focuses on observation and mindfulness.

I did that for a while and it is a good approach.

How's the energy


Community

Thank you. For myself I believe this is the best and most important time for me to work on myself.

I have been recently taught to meet the energies half way so to speak.

For example sadness has a similar feel to happiness. Or the feeling of being afraid versus feeling safe.

So when I'm met with a feeling of sadness I try to find something happy to focus on. As a way of softening the blow so that I can process the sadness.

I cant always do it. And it doesn't always last for long. But when I am able it's worth it. It just makes it easier for me to deal.

How's the energy


Community


How is everyone on here doing energy wise?

I've been coming across a strange feeling in my stomach area that is weighing me down. I've been able to get rid of it using shungite and astrophyllite. But it does come back.

Also, if you can get ahold of some astrophyllite it's great for this time. It's energy is very strong. It may make you feel sick at first. And by sick I mean any old injuries or pain that you haven't dealt with will come up. But it goes away quickly. I keep a peice in each pocket. It has been a life saver during these trying times. It's energy is very clean and calming once it clears you out.

@hopdaddy I agree with you I actually haven't talked to her since. 

I was very open with her about being an empath because she said she knew about all of these things. It was funny when she didn't realize what was happening. 

The tip of the ice berg was when we went to the mountains. All the energy I had picked up was instantly released. I felt a lot better. But then I could feel her more clearly. She just simply doesn't understand what I am. In fact she's convinced I have a "target on my back." I knew there was nothing I could say to get her to understand so I just stopped. I was polite and when it was time to go I left.

Empaths and Emotional Telepathy


Community

@mezzo there is a reason I chose Crystal Sage as my name. If you are interested dm me and I may be able to help you find some crystals to work with. I don't use the more popular ones. I need ones that are stronger. It also depends on your body and where you place the Crystals. The hands don't always do it. And there is a greater power in working with pairs. Meaning two of the same stone.

Empaths and Emotional Telepathy


Community

@illuminous-ops you have just answered so many questions. I only recently began to understand that I was feeling what I was picking up as my own. Fir the last few years I have worked in these situations where I have been surrounded by angry people.

I found I had become an extremely angry person. For me this was mother most difficult thing because even though I have not lead an easy life, I've never really been angry about it. In fact more grateful because those times pushed me to do more.

There was a girl I worked with who was very angry. The day she left the job, I felt this huge relief and that was when it clicked. It was like I was never angry at all.

My problem was that I am surrounded by so many people that things get muddled and I have no idea what is coming from where. I am getting better little by little.
While I have found guidance I knew I was looking for something different. This is it. So thank you. Thank @matthew-elsey for pointing this out to me.

It's been a while since I have been on here. I've been growing a lot as an empath. So I wanted to share/ hear the thoughts of others on this.

So I have come to understand how grounding works for me. I was so confused at first because I just assumed that grounding was supposed to solve all my problems. Lol. But I think what I really thought was that grounding would stop me from picking up energies. It in fact just gets rid of the old while at the same time opening me up to more energies.

This was a tough pill to swallow. At first for a while I was like what is the f@#$ing point. 

Now I understand. No matter what I am now and always will be an empath. It just literally how I am built as a person. There is no cure, no relief there is only learning to accept it and how to live a full life knowing what I know.

So recently I had a terrible experience with someone I thought could be a good friend. She blamed me, or my energy for being the reason we could not get to where we where going. This hurt like hell, but I had also begun to understand that there are projective and receptive qualities to being an empath. Some of us can only do one or the other, but there are those who can do both.

I can do both. 

So that day that she was blaming for went like this. Before I got to her I was stuck on a train filled with irritation. There was a problem with the train and a lot of people were upset about. Then while I was in the car with her the area that we were in was filled with people with a variety of different emotions. There was some type of sporting event going on. Now I could feel all of this. Because by that point I had gotten pretty good at understanding the energy flowing through me. And I had kinda started to suspect that it was being projected outward but wasn't sure yet.

So this person is a part of a religion (I wont say which one because she is not an example of how this group is). I was interested in learning more about it. She got upset because I didn't want to join. I could feel her anger. This the point when she blamed my energy.

Now I laugh but then I was hurt. Because she claimed she understood what I am but then told me I must have some evil spirit on me.

Wow.

I do not. What was happening was that I had not grounded out old energy that I had picked. The energy we pick up from others does have an effect our lives. Doesn't mean there is a spirit cursing us. 

In fact I have come to believe that everything is energy. And it can be painful to have so many energies pass through us if we keep ourselves open and allow the energy to pass through almost can harm us.

I'm going to stop here just because some of this is hard to put into words. Curious to know what others think about these things.

Particularly about the concept of being receptive/projective.

@mez. For myself I have to clear my energy everyday. Sometimes twice a day. I use a combination of shungite, copper, and silver to do this. I like because the effects are immediate most of the time. Some energies are stronger than others so the can take a bit more.

I also have slowly gotten into herbal teas. I particularly like a combination of skullcap and wood betony. The trick with the herbal teas is to let them steep for at least a day. So I get my hot water going pour it in the cup and let it sit. This process just allows you to absorb more of the plant medicine.

Also a note about grounding the energy. I've learned we need to ground energy from the day, but we also need to ground energy from the past (and past lives if you believe in them). The more you stay grounded the easier things get after a while.

However, something that I have noticed is once that happens there is a point of difficulty at first. I think it is the same once you become aware that you are an empath. It almost feels like the ability gets stronger. To some degree it does however it is also the time we need to start learning to take control.

When we ground it doesn't stop us from picking up energy. It just clears out energy which helps with a lot of the sickness that can come with being an empath.

It's like if you empty a bottle well now there is room to put more in that bottle. Sometimes what you get filled with is good, sometimes not so much. It's taken some time but I have learned to balance the energy around me. One of the best ways that I have found to deal is by not shielding. I know shielding is a popular method but I've come to find it is simply like building a dam. Which is great when the dam holds up. However the energies you can come across in a day have varying strengths. Stronger energies will break that damn and then I'm flooded with the overload. When I take the time to feel the energies they actually pass very quickly and I dont get hit with the overload unless I come across a lot of depression or fear. It can be painful at first if I'm being honest. Which is also why I had to learn to change the way I defined and responded to pain. When I shy away from the pain I stop acknowledging the energy I'm trying to deal with, and that is how energies get stuck inside me.

There is an energy worker I get advice from who has been very understanding over the years. His advice has been the best and most effective so far.

Also, alone time is monumentally important. Our thoughts and emotions are simply energies. Our brain automatically tries to interpret those energies. So some of what you feel, like feeling unappreciated could actually be coming from someone else but because of how we are taught and to view the world we almost always automatically think they belong to us. Being away from others after having grounded all the old energy can clear your mind and allow you to hear your own thoughts.

My point find ways that help you stay grounded. I like stones and metals because I understand the science behind it. If you are into that sort of thing, I've found that the spine and areas around the neck are best. However, go slow because you are message with the "circuits " in you body. But be aware that as you are grounding out old energy it can take some time to get a handle on what's yours and what's not.

Hope this made sense and was maybe helpful.

Change of Seasons


Community

Another possibility is the change in temperature. It gets cooler. The reason I think this matters is because of how energy reacts to temperature. In cooler temperatures energy can travel much easier. In warmer temperatures energy cannot move as well. Think about a peice of metal that is being used to conduct energy. When it is cool energy can pass through easily. Once it starts getting warmer energy stops being able to pass so easily. As it continues to get hotter the metal(depending on the type) becomes more resistive than conductive.

I think that during winter as the temperature cools it allows all the energy that was stuck in people to be released. As we are empaths we can feel all that's being released. I think the only reason we don't go completely insane during this time of year is that the cold is helping us a little. So yeah we are being hit with more energy than normal it is not staying it is passing through. It's just a lot passing through.

I think this is also while people feel refreshed in spring.

Hands up vs. Hands down


Community


I am curious to know if anyone else has had the same experience. 

I was meditating a few weeks ago. The purpose was to really get in touch with my own energy. I wanted to see where my vibration was, and see where my blocks were. I was successful however what I was noticing  was that no matter how long I was sitting with everything I wasn't changing anything. I was just becoming more aware of what was moving around inside. 

I was wishing I could consciously remove the energy. Now I was sitting with my palms down because I was told that when I wanted to ground, that was the way to go. 

Then I turned my palms up. I noticed that the energy in my body began to shift. After some time my palms grew warm. The warmer they got the more I noticed a decrease in the unwanted energy. After even more time, I noticed my energy begin to settle. 

Now I'm palms up even when I am not meditating. If I am sitting in a room with heavy energy I discreetly keep my palms up. It has been a game changer for me.

Trying to be strong


Community

@finding-peace. I'm sorry to hear about what you are going through. That is a rough situation.

It sounds like you're not just picking up on her emotions. It seems like you may be reflecting to her as well. It would explain why she has chosen you as a target. It is not you she has a problem with. Some people have a hard time truly seeing themselves. I wonder if a part of her knows you can pick up on her energy.

I have learned a new trick. Well it's not actually new. It's just new to me. If I hold my palms up as a sit, whether meditating or not, I release even the difficult energy. I noticed it when I was meditating. I got frustrated because I could feel the energy that needed to be released but it was just cycling through me. It wasn't until I turned my palms up that it left. I had them up for about 20 minutes. Then my hands got warm and heat was coming off of them. After that all those heavy vibrations were gone. Forgot to mention I was also focusing on the energy I wanted to release. I would saw try that.

I hope you find a solution that works for you.

In need of some kind words


Community

@womanwhowalks there is construction happening near my house. I think they just started the ground work for the electrical wiring. I noticed that when I passed the site I felt the surge more strongly. I changed where I wear my copper bracelets. Wearing on the left arm near the elbow is the most effective spot. However my bracelets are not big enough so it's not very comfortable there. But I did it today as I walked by the site. I still felt some of it but not nearly as much.

Community

@michelle I totally feel the addiction aspect more than I have in the past. I had worked my emotions down to a whisper, and I started to miss them. That is what I meant when I mentioned feeling nothing. The honest truth was that life was good.
I was looking at my calendar and I realized a full moon just passed. I'm always more vulnerable during that time. Anyway

I like the idea of moving toward more subtle emotions. Because this addiction is finally getting old. I'm tired of the up and down.

@womanwhowalks that kind of thing happens to me all the time. In fact people are happy with me when they can treat me like an emotional garbage can. When I don't let them do so they get angry with me sometimes to the point of viciousness. I used to blame myself for it thinking something was wrong with me. I made it a point to be extremely kind and never get angry to the point of never standing up for myself. That however did not change anything. It does feel like that energy is seeking me out.

Also, I've been getting these strange energy surges over the last couple of days. It's been so bad that I had to put on my copper which helps me when there is too much energy surrounding me. It's been so bad that I suddenly start feeling itchy all over.
Today was the first day I put my copper choker back on. It grounds me more than I can handle so I don't always wear it. Plus I have another necklace which has a stone the puts new energy in as i ground out the old. I usually do great with that one. But because of the surges it's been too much.

As i was walking to the train i felt a ring of what I can only describe as static energy wrap around my neck. It was a very strange feeling. It moved in a circular motion and then a few minutes later the itching started. I also have copper bracelets on and hematite in my pockets so it wasn't as bad as it has been. I also think that was why I was able to feel the energy more before it started affecting me. I'm not really sure what it is. It started after I did a salt bath. I wonder if I removed something that wants back in.

Ok. There has been a lot of good sharing that has really helped. Thank you.

@moonshine I've known that friend all of my life. I am realizing today that there are many issues going on with me.

First I use fasting to ground. It is the hardest tool I use but it is extremely effective. I realized last night that it has been a while. So I am starting a fast today.

It was strange this morning I had a revelation about how sometimes I get itchy all over for no reason. Today it hit me that I was picking up a lot of energy all at once that wasn't being grounded.
@womanwhowalks it's funny that you mentioned root work. I recently had a conversation with someone who offered to teach me more about it. Not sure if I can trust this person yet.

I hear you all on the stranger thing. Keeping people as strangers also seems to keep from developing cords with them as well. I can be more free.
I wasn't listening to my window instincts when it came to that conversation. It is hard sometimes. My instincts tell me that most people are not safe to talk to or connect with on a deeper level. I have days where feeling that loneliness doesn't bother me and days where it does.
I took a salt bath which seemed to really help. I think a few more hours into the fast I will feel good again.
There is another thing I also realized for myself. I wonder if any of you ever go through this. I noticed a few weeks ago after a lot of successful grounding sessions that I felt nothing. At the time I was very afraid of that feeling. It was not normal to me. I felt absolutely no connection to this world. I felt empty. I thought that feeling was so wrong. And as I said I began to get very afraid. I realize now that in response to that fear I stopped grounding. And now I am back in this place of being overloaded.

I wonder if I am looking at things wrong. What I mean is this... I have recently come to change my view of all emotions. I try not to classify them( that is still a work in progress). Instead I try to see them as different types of energy. Making sure I keep all the types in balance. When I did that things where working out really well for me. I wonder if viewing that empty feeling as a negative thing was misguided. We are taught to look at a lack of emotion as being a psychological disorder. However we are also taught that to believe in being empathetic among other things is also crazy. What if that's wrong. I did not lack care for others, I was not filled with hate. I just wasn't filled with anything. I was still aware of there being an emotional state. I just could not connect with it, and I seemed to be handling life well. But I was still afraid. I thought it meant that I was becoming too detached from the world. But taking into consideration what we just said about it being easier to deal with strangers maybe that is what it needed to completely detach. Like detaching from the matrix lol. I'm not sure. But given what has been happening in the last few days I am going to experiment with this theory. I'll make another post sometime from know if I find out anything useful. If anyone has any idea about what I am wondering please share.

Do you get what you need out of meditation?


Community

Michelle. This actually really did help. Lately, I am ok most of the time. I do enough self care that I struggle less with being an empath than I used to. However, sometimes I get so busy, I forget to do some of the little things I need to do.

In my new place I can't do some of the things that used to help me. Like burning sage. Which is ok, but I never really replaced it with anything. I think I have meditated twice since I've moved in.

Thank you for the reminder.

In need of some kind words

I tried do this post earlier and lost everything I wrote. So here's a summary of what started as a long vent.

I just don't get it. There was a point in my life where I was overly kind to everyone in it. I tried my best to just move on whenever someone did or said something that hurt me. Mainly because I was never allowed to say anything. Whenever I did stand up for myself I was treated like a horrible person. But when others would treat me badly nothing was said or done. The position that I must have done something was always taken. I never understood it. When others accused me of being unkind I try to be more kind. When accused of not listening, I spoke less and listened more. It got to the point where I did not speak at all and I never asked for anything for myself. I took on blame that I knew was not mine. I became invisible to make others happy. Then after I did all of that I git accused of being standoffish. 

I am going through a rough time at my new place, after moving from an old place where the environment was toxic. So I tried to call a friend because I just needed some comfort. My friend told me that I am going through these things because  I am not praying enough and I probably need to go see a doctor. Now that is not exactly how it was said, being fair. Those were two separate comments but ultimately the bottom line for my friend. I was told that it was said out of love but that's not how it feels. I don't feel motivated like I can carry on. I feel worse than before I called. I feel like something is wrong with me. 

And you know I got upset. Which i feel terrible about. But here's the thing. First I have a doctor. That I see regularly. Second, while I do not follow traditional religion, that does not make me evil or deserving of being treated badly. This friend like most of the people in my life has been neglectful if nothing to say the least in the past. I mean never there for my good or my bad. This person like a few others in my life really only pick up the phone when my life is a mess. Whenever I try to reach out during my good moments they are either too busy to listen, or just don't feel like talking. It's like their whole mood changes when I have good news, but when it is bad they are happy. This is a person like many others, who I forgave, which why we still currently have a friendship. And yet this person like many others just doesn't see me.

And that is why I need the kindness. I'm not sure that anyone in my life sees me. There may be one or two, but they are almost never available. 

It seems that it's only when I'm doing bad that they want to talk to me. I hate this. I feel so alone these days. There is so much more I need to get off my chest, I just don't know how to say it. These moments really make me doubt myself. 

I just don't understand. It seems that not matter how I live my life, I am always wrong.

Can someone please cheer me up? Also I know this post wasn't very clear. I just don't know how to say it all.

Dream about telekinesis


Community

@hop-daddy
I'll do my best to explain. Metal therapy was something that was used way back in the day. It is really hard to find much info on it. Most of what I have learned is through trying it out and talking to others.

The most noticeable effect is the release of that excess energy. It changes depending on what I am wearing and where.
When I was doing my research I actually ending up looking at conductivity vs. Resitivity. Metals, crystals, and the human body all conduct energy in different forms. From what I have found it is why we pair well with crystals. However metals are actually more conductive which is why we also pair well with them. It has to do with temperature. The hotter anything gets the harder it is for energy to pass through. I believe that is why salt baths work well. Slat is a metal and it is very conductive. Size also matters. When energy passes through an object it brings up the temperature. When a object gets hot it can still absorb energy but the energy will not pass through it. It's why Crystal's need to be cleaned and break if they are not. Imagine a balloon that gets continuously filled, it'll burst. Metals can handle more energy than crystals and the human body. It takes much longer for them to get so hot that the energy gets stored rather than released.
With that in mind I started to think about where I had noticable energy blocks, and also where I had energy leaking out. It seemed that the places coincided with one another.
So that necklace I had kept breaking because a lot of my energy was getting stuck in my neck between my shoulders. I felt great wearing the necklace because it was allowing the energy that was stuck in that area to be released, but it was too much for the necklace(it is a lapis lazuli necklace btw).
I noticed that from my hands up to my wrist there was also a lot going on energy wise. My right soaks up energy and my left releases it. When I first put the three metal bracelet(copper, nickel, and brass) on I felt the best I had ever felt. So I bought rings and extra bracelets and then I came across some interesting issues. The effects where not the same and I couldn't figure out why.
However through talking to people and some trial and error I began to think of the human body like a circuit board. If the connections are not in the correct place the energy cannot flow properly.
That got me to thinking about my necklace and how having multiple bracelets was not working. One of the energy workers I spoke to said it was because I was grounding too much. Essentially I was draining all the old energy which was good. However I was draining out all my energy without replacing it.
So I stopped wearing all the bracelets all the time. I bought a copper necklace, a silver necklace and some silver studs. I alternate between those only really tough days. The silver is really good for emotionally charged days. The copper is great for bodily pain and fatigue. Most days I pair the bracelet on my right wrist with the lapis necklace which I have since added a cerussite stone to. The cerussite is what brings in new energy after the lapis and three metal bracelet ground out the energy and I feel great.(cerussite contains lead, so I recommend finding something that does not. Right now it works grest but I am currently looking for something safer) I am in SF almost every day and while the energy gets to me a little it is nothing like it used to be. If fact the energy that I pick up is manageable. I am also able to understand it a lot better.
My very long point is that it is important to figure out how the energy in your body is flowing. Then you can manipulate it with metals and crystals. Less can me more. I am told gold is great. But it has to be as close to pure as possible. Same with the other metals. Like anything when you add other stuff to something you change it's vibration, or energy signature and thus change its effect. I'm told 22k is fine. But it is expensive. Brass and gold appear to have similar effects and brass is much cheaper. They are supposed to be good for healing the soul energy. Honestly haven't tried it yet.
Also when I have bodily pain I have copper disks that apply directly to that area and after a couple of hours the pain is gone. After a couple of days it doesn't come back. Applying metal disks to injured areas is actually one way metal therapy was used way back when.
I have also learned that when doing energy work it is better to take off the metals. It is much easier to feel what is going on. Although I do think that as I progress that will change.
Hope this was helpful.

@hop-daddy have you ever tried using metals?
I added them to my kit a few months back and they have been a game changer. I have learned how to use the better over that time. The basically help you ground. Different metals are better for different types of grounding. Doing combos can be amazing. You don't want to wear them everyday though. Maybe after a few consecutive days leave the bracelet, necklace, or whatever at home. They should be taken off at night. Although in the beginning these guidelines don't necessarily apply as they help you get to a good base. I live the healing bracelet which is copper, brass and nickel. There may be a little green coloration at first but that goes away. It can typically happen if you wear it while sweating. Then there is silver which is great for emotional grounding. When paired with stones like cerussite which brings in new energy as you ground out the old, you can wear them longer and the effect is more balancing without a lot of effort.
When I am experiencing an overload and I put the bracelet on I immediately feel the effect and I am able to calm down more easily. The best thing I got was some silver studs. When I have headaches from emotional overload they take out the entry quickly.

At times confused, often simply overwhelmed


Community

@zacharias what countries? @awakeningbucked I can relate to some of your experiences. I was also told I was too sensitive and often created worlds in my mind where I could be peaceful. I hate conflict but can rarely avoid it. I denied many things that happened because they seemed to be impossible. And PTSD, yup.

My point is that you are not alone.

I would say learn your triggers as well as you can. Sometimes the emotions we pick up can get those triggers going. The rest takes time. Welcome to the club. 🙂

Dream about telekinesis


Community

@hop-daddy and @moonshine. I use a combo of crystals and metals to help with that.

I have a necklace that I kept breaking and it is because instead of getting to my electronics the excess energy gets absorbed by the necklace. The break always looked like it was cut and burned.Copper and black crystals really help with absorbing the energy.

I was talking to an energy worker I know a short while ago and I was actually asking about why I kept breaking my crystals. We began to discuss the different kinds of energies and it made sense to me. It was something I was noticing but didn't quite understand.

He said that there was physical, mental, and emotional energy. I agree with these but do believe there to be subcategories of each. His point was that emotional energy is much stronger and also much harder to get rid of. It's why sometimes I clean my crystals and they still feel like they are not completely clean. The same things we use to clean physical and mental energy do not always clear emotional energy. I like to experiment so I tested out his theory and I agree. I also found more balance and have since been able to wear my necklace for longer than I ever have before. It's been over a month now. I have never worn it that long with out it breaking.

So far I have found that emotional energy is essentially like heat. The more there is the hotter it feels. The chill that can happen when meditating is a sign that it has gone out completely. Of lot of energy blockages in my body are also that same energy. The easiest way to describe physical energy is thoughts. Which sounds strange but I'm talking volume not mere existence there of. The more clouded your mind feels, the more it seems like your mind is racing and you cannot control it the more excess mental energy you have. When it comes to physical I think it is the heavy feelings that way us down and make us feel tired.

When it comes to clearing them. For me different kinds of meditation clear them all but in different times and ways. Fire, i.e. candles, are really good with emotional energy. Water and sleep work well for mental. Water also works well for physical especially cold.

My overall point is that if you maybe experiment with clearing all of the different energies it may help with the power surges. Also different stones clear different energies. Stones with lithium are good for emotional energy. But remember if you use grounding stones pair them with something that fills the body with energy. There is such a thing as too much grounding.

About telekinesis. I think that is another way of not only clearing the energy but using it. I think we all have that ability. When we are in high emotional states it is usually due to an unintentional overload of energy. Which is why the unintentional teletype events, telekinesis, telepathy, etc, happen. For me I manifest much more easily when I am really upset. I am actually learning to focus and use the energy I absorb because I find that the more I do it the better I feel and deal with life.

@hop-daddy can't believe it has been a year since I made this post. How time flies.

Differentiating between your own emotions and outside


Community

@mariposa and @michelle. I also get it in my head and solar plexus. When it comes to physical pain I get it wherever they feel it.

Sitting with the feeling often helps me determine the source. When it is not mine I usually feel a lot of strong vibration. Or I see the person when I would normally see myself. It's almost like I become them.

@michelle I've been there with addiction to the feeling. It can be very harmful. Although I often wonder if it is a two sided addiction or if somehow that person has a tight hold. I'm curious to know what you think. I have know toxic people who I could just not get away from. When I finally did leave it was like they were also going through a sort of withdrawal.

@mariposa you say you learned from a young age how to block out others. Would you mind sharing how? I think when we are younger we know more about how to handle this than we realize and forget as we get retrained how to live by the world. It sounds like you were able to hold on to some of that knowledge.

Fasting was hard for me too. I started off very slow. I would go 8 hours and the stop. I increased it a couple of hours at a time until I was able to do whole days. A lot of it was mind over matter. I also have a rule for when I fast. If it doesn't feel right I stop. I notice that when I fast I process energy a lot faster.

Every thing else I mentioned just helps me ground. Different things work at different times. I think it just depends on the kind of energy I am being h in t with.

Lately I have been working on accepting those energies. I take a deep breath and absorb them so that I can use them. It has actually been working. Although at times it can be very difficult. The idea is to change my view 9f the energy. It changes the affect and I am able to use that energy in my body the same way I use the energy I get from food.

Not sure if I answered that question all the way. Lmk.

@michelle thank for the compliment and the info. I never really took the time to look up emf.

@moonshine the whole heart palpitations and picking up on others sickness has happened to me before. I have also acted out the emotions of others.
I think the heart thing is actually energy we are feeling. Maybe that's why the test doesn't see anything. I have noticed that when I sit with it the feeling goes away.
On the whole pissing people off sometimes. I actually hate when it happens. However over time I have been training myself to be okay with sometimes rubbing people the wrong way.I don't do it on purpose, it is just a fact of life sometimes. Only because I feel better when I allow my self to be.

I am also a misfit. Always have been. I also get along better with other misfits. I have some good friends although it does not always feel that way. I can't talk about this stuff with most of my friends. My empathic friends are like me and tend to disappear for long periods of time. I get that it is usually due to a need to recharge but it can get lonely.
Also going back to acting out others emotions or picking up on their sickness. I use a combination of fasting, metals, meditation, and crystals to help me. I haven't found a method that always works yet. I have learned that are different kinds of energy which get cleared different ways. Sometimes it also depends on the strength of the energy and your connection with the source.
I have also learned to change my perspective with regards to how the energies are affecting me. Some days are better than others. lol

Hope you're all doing well. Take care.

I think the honest answer is that empaths are still just people. Just as imperfect and just as clueless at times.

For me personally I do the best I can. However I know that when I am face to face with an empath or someone who is open to the subject I get overly excited. It is just so rare to be able to talk to an actual person. As far as the whole getting upset and the post about being an empath, and even the competitiveness to it. I think it could be many things. One we are just imperfect people. I also think we expect to have all the answers. Another reason could be this one size fits all mentality that is sometimes apart of the human condition. Another possibility is that some believe what they believe so strongly that they may take offense to being questioned. I honestly don't mean that part in a negative way. It can be such a hard life. When we find a way of believing that makes it easy to get up in the morning having someone question it is almost like messing with our survival.

Finding balance to live a life as close to normal as possible can be a personal journey. Sometimes others can give you the answers you need. Sometimes they can only offer examples of experiences had that have worked for them. It is up to each individual to decide what works for for them. And if someone gets upset with something you have done or said, as harsh as this may sound, I have to say so what. For me I have to be able to live in this world as best as I can. Others are not always going to be happy with me just as I wont always be happy with others. The best I can offer is an apology when needed and to be as mindful as I can without sacrificing myself. I have found that it does no one any good when you give up your own happiness and comfort for others. It only makes me resentful, which can make me dangerous. It's better to live honestly and possibly piss a few people off, then live a lie which will only cause more problems than need be.

I like this post. Thanks for sharing it.

Is this a sign???


Community

Just to add to what has already been said. When I am around people like that hematite helps a lot if you can stand it. I carry in my pocket when I know that difficult person is going to be around. The first couple of days can be a little disorienting but if you can make it through that energy shift. Things change. There was a girl who would make everyone sick at work. There was something weird going on with her energy. When I went to the store a piece of hematite called out to me. It made me feel weird for a bit. My stomach kept turning and I kept having to use the restroom. However my instincts said to ride it out. Once I noticed the discomfort was gone I also noticed I could talk to that girl with no problems. She actually never affected me again.

Not every likes or can handle hematite, as I have recently learned. But it can be very helpful.

Glad you are figuring it out. I also wonder if you are able to build a protective grid around you classroom so you can make that a safe space for you and the children.

Could the way we define emotions be the reason?


Community

Good feeling, bad feeling

We are brought up to recognize certain feelings as good and certain feelings as bad. I wonder if it is because of this that certain difficulties arise.

Good feelings are often also safe feelings. Since the mind has not paired an alert response to most good feelings, we do not become triggered when they arise.

Bad feelings are often a sign that there is some sort of unpleasantness in store. When they arise we become triggered.

Below is an article that briefly goes into how triggers work:

https://www.goodtherapy.org/blog/psychpedia/trigger

So when I feel sadness, I feel the urge to get away from it. Past experiences have taught me that when I feel this emotion it is because something awful has happened. So I become triggered and once we become triggered we experience our trauma again.

It would be similar for anger, pain, and all the other "negative" emotions. My personal memories of them are not good. So my reactions are equally as bad. I go on high alert.

When feel happiness it hardly registers. In those moments I feel safe. There is no need to be on alert.

As people who take on more emotional stimuli than most, could it be beneficial to change how we define emotion?

The fact for me is that these emotions are coming. The overload has this annoying tendency to be hiding right around the corner. Avoiding never works for long. Grounding is great, but what about those difficult moments? What about the times when familiar techniques just don't cut it?

My goal over this last year has been to find coping strategies that work more consistently for me. What I have been finding is that the more accepting I am of all the emotions flooding my way the easier it is to handle. Lately my view of emotions has been changing.

I find myself welcoming in my least favorite emotions. Treating them almost as if they are lost children who need help finding their way home. I am even beginning to see the benefits of even the most painful emotions.

I think that we cannot view emotional states in the same way others do. We have to learn to feel safe with every emotion because that more apart of us. At least IMO.

What do you all think? Has anyone had similar or different theories?

@hop-daddy

I haven't done enough research on it yet to really be able to say anything.

I just noticed that this time of year feels heavier. Like there are a lot more energies than normal.

I was also looking into different pagan customs many of which seem to view this as a time of year to be connected with our ancestors.

There is also this dream that I had of a relative who passed. But I felt his spirit before I saw him.

Sometimes the thoughts just come to me, usually when I look into it I find info that confirms. This time it is a little different.

But since the beginning of the solstice I have felt the heavy energy that started around October lift.

I wish I knew more. Now all I can think about is next year.

@stefficat11

Feel it. All of. Every ounce of pain hatred shame.

I know how that sounds, and no there isn't much glam to it. The truth is doing so hurts like hell.

However, once I allowed myself to feel it. I noticed that it got easier. The pain slowly became less, as well as the fear and everything else.

What also happened is I was allowed to feel safe, and good again.

Not all at once, but little by little every day, just sit with a piece of it. The next day sir with a little more and so on.

It's when we try to turn it off that it gets worse. It's if you let the body feel it, it'll know what to do.

First few days may be hell on ice, fyi. But I promise it gets better.

Also when it gets to be too much, just breathe and slowly disconnect. When you are ready go back.

Good luck.

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

Community

@michelle

My friend used tuning forks for me. Which might be a good option if loud noise triggers you. This was more about the vibration than the sound. She would hit the forks and then place them in spots where she could feel energy blocakges.

I did this for spiritual reasons. I'm trying to open myself up more. I cried after she was done. A lot of old sadness came up and was released. But she sees clients for many different reasons.

She does also use crystal bowls.

@goodenergyhealing I like the theta waves too. I also like listening to other binaural tracks when it has been a long day.

@zacharias I did a speech on music therapy. It is a great field. There are lots that can be accomplished using it's techniques.

Hello friends, 

First I have learned lots about myself regarding this time of year. So I needed to take a step back in order to get through. It has been interesting. Did you know that this "holiday" season was thought to be a time when those who passed on could visit this world again?

Anyway that's a topic for another post.

What I want to talk about is the use of sound therapy to remove energy blockages. A friend of mine studies this and reiki. She was kind enough to give me a small session and it was great!

Has anyone else had any experience with this?

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


Community

I have been going to places I feel would attract other empaths.

For example crystal shops and other types of store that deal with the alternative world.

I stay away from the "normal" friendships as much as possible. Most of the people I talk I am able to express at least some of my differences to. It is a requirement for me to be able to do so. If I cannot then I stay away from those people in my personal life. It is how I maintain a healthy state of mind.

I have recently found one other person who is also a empathetic. We meet up once a week and just talk freely and it is lovely. It makes it easy to go to work and not talk about my true self. As well as having others in my personal life I can at least talk about crystals or metal therapy with.

Now I also live in Cali, this seems to one place where lots of us are if you are willing to look.

As for before making it a point to place these types of people in my life. I did not do very well. I was always lying about who I was so I could not grow into my truth. That sent me into depressions, and made me feel overwhelmed and lost in this world.

Imo, I think you have to look for people who allow to feel safe being you. It was not easy for me to find them, and cutting out the toxic people did cause me to feel sad and lonely for a while. But now I am comfortable being me. I am more willing to explore my nature because I don't feel like I have to hide. The more I am able to explore, the more I am able to get an handle on things.

Flipping between emotions


Community

I'm not sure. I've spoken to different friends and they have all been going through some type of emotional strain.

I thought it might be me picking up on that.

Of course I've also been in the city a lot.

But, usually I feel bad after being in the city for so many days. I have been there all week and I feel great.

I was honestly thinking it was because I was growing as an empath. It felt like the energies where passing through me faster and those drastic changes where the strong energies that would usually make me sick. Instead there was this surge of of emotion and then it was gone. It also didn't ruin my day like it normally would.

Lol, it feel like I was cleaning a sick of really dirty dishes, some of which were truly disgusting. Once all the dishes where done the room felt clean and shiny. I was also met with a nice environment.

Flipping between emotions

I'm in the same boat lately.
For me the changes have been quick and drastic. One minute I'm fine then I am suddenly overcome with either anger or sadness. After a few moments it goes away and I feel fine. It's like nothing ever happened.

I was actually going to write about it yesterday but I never got around to it.

Being an empath and PMS


Community

@sovanesh

I go through a similar thing with a friend of mine. Whenever she us going through PMS I start feeling these burst of it.
It can be frustrating. The more I talk to her the stronger it gets.

It is said to be normal.

Many years ago studies where done on groups of women. It was found that if a group of women spent enough time together they would all end up on the same cycle.

Actually a choker is exactly what I want. I'm just having a hard time finding the right one.

I did more metal therapy last night. I must sat I feel great this morning.

For me when energy is being released from my body a lot of heat is produced. Does anyone else feel this?

@tigerlily
This new realization has opened up a new way of thinking about and using crystals.

I am not completely sure what side you need to hold it on to release the negative energy. I am learning that everyone is different. So I do not think there is a universal set of instructions.

For myself I notice that the negative energy comes out of the back of my neck. Which is what makes things difficult for me. It's hard to find necklaces that center anything on the back of the neck. So at night when I lay down I place stones there.

What I can share is this. In the work I have been doing with metal therapy I am coming to an understanding of how energy moves.

If we think of it in terms of electricity, which is essentially energy, conductivity becomes important.

Conductivity simply being ease at which engergy can move.

To use an example for clarity I'll tell you about my necklace. It is a black kyanite stone, which I never used to be able to wear continuously through the day. It would get to heavy with energy. I would have to take it off to give it a break. I have recently added a copper necklace to it and now I can wear the necklace all day.

Another thing I am noticing that as I make progress using stones and metals at time it can seem like I have gone backwards. However what is happening is that my awareness is growing. Which is why, while it may feel at times like I have gone backwards I still feel differently.

@chesire-cat.

I agree with you about the black stones. They also seem to be able to hold more energy than most other stones.

I would also recommend looking into metal therapy. It's a could pairing with stones.

Sorry for the late response. I've been distracted lately.

I'm sorry to hear about your baby. I can't imagine how that must have been for you.

I do use crystals and stones. In fact I love working with them. I use them as a part of my regular grounding work.

I just hadn't done my grounding work in a few days. I realized later that night that I was overloaded with energy that needed to be grounded.

I agree with hop-daddy as well. A lot of what he said was right on the money.

I think that along with my own issues with time of year just got to me.

Thank you. I speak of that time in the past and the people involved a lot. It just comes out that way. He is still living.

As far as old wounds go, it's been interesting. I've been doing a lot of work clearing my energy. In doing so I have noticed that a lot of old stuff is coming up, but with a greater sense of clarity. I am doing less self blame and more understanding. It's like as I clear old energy from my body those experiences are being removed with them.

I also realized that when I wrote this post it had been a few days since I did my normal clearing practices. I can normally go a few days without that happening. But as I said this time of year has a lot of memories for me. I was also in the city a lot as well as around a lot of people who I know to have very low vibrations.

It all was adding up.

I celebrate my birthday every day of the month for many reasons. However there are two main reasons. The first is teach myself that I am worth, and should, be celebrated. The second has to do with how I viewed my birthday growing up. Because of how things worked out I always found myself sad that day. I wanted to change that energy. I wanted to learn to look forward to my day.

I must say it has been fun!

I have a daily budget. Some days it is not about buying a gift so much as exaggerated self care/love. So I may do something simple like watching a movie I love at home. As long as the mindset is celebratory.
