Not sure Kate but I got your reply by email. It was most enlightening I am still thinking about it. With reference to ducks I was indeed feeding them when one female hopped out to my feet. But I have noticed pigeons seem to strut past me more confidently lol.
Hi guys just as the title says really. I noticed that the birds in Wales seem to have lost their fear of humans, well me anyway. Is this a normal thing that happens as you learn more about being an Empath? I only found out August 2019.
In fact everything in the park today seemed different somehow, in a nice way. The grass was greener, air quality off the charts, even people, the few that were out seem perhaps not happier but more appreciative. Almost as if they were seeing the beauty around them for the first time. It felt amazing. I have to admit I almost don't want things to go back to "Normal" normal kind of sucked. Does this make me a bad person?
Part of me is a little concerned the words "The calm before the storm" keep popping into my head. Could it be possible that the human species is waking up and seeing another way?
Everybody in my Country keeps repeating "Stay safe" like some kind of weird mantra hoping it will all go away. I always liked "NO FEAR" myself.
Taylor Knox top of a 52 1/2 foot wave in Hawaii. Caption reads "What if everything you ever wanted cost you everything you ever achieved? What if to get to Heaven you had to go through Hell? Would you still go there? NO FEAR!
Love to you all
Yes seen the look your talking about. A Jehovah witness did it when I told him to leave and never knock my door again. I had bad experience with one when I was a kid. This one was all dressed smart and sweetness and light, then as he turned to leave the mask slipped and I saw his face change sort of like a look of hate mixed with disgust at being exposed I guess.
Never thought about the entities idea but makes sense. However some people hide their evil behind a mask of goodness as we all know. I think I agree us Empaths see through it kinda scary but also means they can't hide. I'm trying to stay away from things lurking around hun till I learn more.
Take care hugs Matthew
Headaches back tonite in third eye location sage and singing bowl before bed I think.
Yes the citrine was on my third eye point when i fell asleep. Wrote the following when I woke up.

Them's that doesn't take what is freely given Becomes them's that is taken freely from
For there is them that have nought That must take whatever they can
But if you give what you may with an open heart They will never come calling again
But always make sure yous leave a light on for if them come's calling you's will always be in the dark
Things have been a bit weird since my dad died in October will definitely work on grounding. Nothing floating round YET. Watch this space. I may have picked something up from a woman's house I was spending time with. All good fun lol. I only found out last August that I'm an Empath sure is an eye opener...
Keep it real hop hugs Matthew
Stone cold truth Trevor.
I watch netflix and YouTube to learn new things like how to play guitar and make jewelery and teach my puppies to come when I call them (still working on that) avoid the LIES as much as humanly possible. But yes things have been tough these last two weeks a lot of people buying into the fear I mean how many people have died in car accidents in the same time frame it's all bulls"/t to control a population.
Its so hard to avoid it people Well rant over just look at Your life 99.99% of The news lies have absolutely no effect on your life. No really think about it and the other 0.01% is completely out of your control...rant now definitely over.
Much love Matthew
'empaths and emotional telepathy' post has some interesting data.
I can do both ops magus calls it PUSH and PULL Also I can reflect but still working on phasing and Grounding. My inspiration Teal Swan believes that shielding goes contrary to our ability and that if you perceive that you need to protect yourself against something then you are 'creating' the thing you perceive you need to protect yourself against.
If we all wore T shirts with I AM AN EMPATH written on them.
All people would see was the razor sharp sword that we truly are, and fear us. So we must hide in the shadows behind myth and disbelief waiting patiently for the rest of the world to catch up. Sure wish it would hurry up sometimes.
Thank you for the input guys.
This has happened to me many many times over the years. It went away when I bought my dream catcher but I guess it's come back. Whenever it happens I feel like I'm awake and can see everything as if I'm awake. And then I start to panic. I did used to have a fear of the dark and it still catches me sometimes. So yes the fear was probably mine Mez.
I read a little on dream walking Karen and it certainly rings true I walked out the bedroom and downstairs to check the electric meter, it is a pre pay meter so can shut itself off, it all felt so real that I didn't know I was asleep until the shock of the other dream walker woke me up.
Is there a way that you have learned to "Know" that you are dream walking?
Thank you for the reply Chrisis.
Yes an out of body experience sounds like a accurate description. I suppose if I removed the emotion from the dream it's quite innocuous. Just meeting another person in the dark. If your out of your body walls are kind of irrelevant why wouldn't the person be in my house. In a way they helped me because when I bumped into them I woke up.
Still it wasn't particularly pleasant I hope it doesn't happen to you to often Chris. Thank you again for the input I shall be doing some research on OBE
Woke up 01:00 felt real fear turned light on took five minutes to calm down.
Dream description: woke up and turned on lamp wouldn't turn on, tried torch beside bed didn't turn on tried smartphone only very dim started to panic couldn't turn phone torch on. Went down stairs to check electric meter main trip been disabled opened front door pitch black. Turned shut door and was Confronted by black figure felt terror I asked' What do you want from me ?' Figure replied 'I don't want anything from you'
I woke up for real turned on light 01:00 as above. I had fallen asleep with citrine crystal on my forehead with a slight head ache and had felt dizzy bit woozy. Started dreaming again after a long break when I got my chihuahua puppies last Tuesday but this was a real nasty one. They are in the bedroom which has been silent for the last three years...pretty sure they are the trigger.
Any input greatly appreciated
Hi Mez the film looks interesting I have found it on YouTube it appears to be ten parts cut into 9 to 10 minute chunks .
Thank you for sharing what is very personal information and feelings. It feels like you are making positive steps in the right direction. I have found that were I live and who I live with has a profound effect on me mentally and emotionally and this reflects in my physical condition. So accommodation is really important, though can be the hardest thing to change.
There is an old book called "Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus by John Gray" it is basically a guide to relationships you may find it interesting. He highlights some odd aspects of men and women which I had never heard of before reading it.
I have only "Known" I'm an Empath for about nine months. (I'm 46) I have only told two people. One disregarded it out of hand the other pretty much the same reaction. My peer mentor is an Empath he told me he was one and it went from there.
Let's face it most people think of science fiction and Diana Troy from the Star Ship Enterprise when you say the word Empath. We are very rare, and those of us that Know are even rarer. So it is kind of understandable that we men can be a bit hesitant to talk about it. Let's face it before you "Know" your whole previous life has been a living hell full of abuse. People...well I don't have to tell you, you have lived it. However now that you know what you are, you can start to build a new life. It's going to be hard, it's going to hurt, there will still be people who will want to dump buckets of shit on you. But you can do it. I am.
In answer to your question I feel everything. Plants, animals, people, even crystals and rocks sometimes. But it's getting easier to feel how I'M feeling. Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
It sounds like your going through a tough time Mez. I have an addiction to cannabis not sure if that is similar to purging. I think they are both coping strategies. I haven't used since 7th January but I had a new friend cancel on me today and I felt regected and wanted to use. I Went for a ride on my bike in the park and fed the ducks instead. I guess it sounds a bit lame but I felt better.
Being an Empath can be really hard sometimes I have to work at knowing if the feelings are mine or someone else's. The doctor sounds like a complete dick. To say somebody is too obese to offer help is horrible in my opinion.
It sounds like your intuition is pointing you towards the eating disorder clinic you mentioned. I attend a drug rehabilitation center once a fortnite and talk to a peer mentor for an hour or so he has really helped me. I guess this response is a bit lame but all I can say is listening to my inner voice has helped me since discovering that I'm an Empath. Good luck Mez.
I have seen them quite often. They say they are a common form that spirits take in our earth plane since they can no longer present in human shape.
From what I hear, young children attract orbs more often than teens or adults. And the reason being is that their souls are still relatively new to this world and are fresh off the boat from the other side (so to speak). As a result, they tend to get more visits from loved ones on the other side. But adults tend to see them during times of struggle and after a loved one has died. People that are empaths and other sensitives also tend to have orb visits more often. As far as I know they are nothing to fear.
Freaked me out a bit. I felt it was ok but she didn't agree. Went in the bedroom on my own and there was some bad shit going down. I'm really new awakened like 6 months. She said ex beat her up n took his own life. I wasn't prepared for the fight from what ever it was I guess you could say. Picked up on a wood box with electrical tv stuff in it she said it was his so we chucked it straight out.
I've been smudgeing my place and hitting singing bowl lady in the market wrote a few prares for me. I feel a bit shook up but confident it's gone. I think it's best I stay from there. What do you think?
Has anyone seen them or know anyone who has seen them?
I gave a friend a dream catcher and the same night she filmed an orb on her phone it appeared to travel past the dream catcher and into a mirror. She seen one before round her granddaughter but first time in her house. Do you think it was following me?
criticise and belittle...
Trade mark of a malignant Narcissist hence the red flag.
Trust yours intuition 100%
When you leave, leave quietly and don't tell him your leaving just go. I feel. he will get nasty. If you can arrange it so he doesn't know where you are going even better. I do not want to scare you but I feel he is going to turn on you.
I am not offering advice but supporting your own intuitions decision. Be strong. It will hurt. May I suggest the work of Teal Swan.
Good luck hugs Matthew
Excellent I was going to ask about that cheers.
Yes it happened to me a few weeks ago I didn't realise at the time. This guy was really stressed and angry when he came in my house. I pulled the words 'that's the spirit' from his mind subconsciously and they just came out of my mouth i intended it to be in a supportive way but it triggered him.
I remained calm on my exterior but obviously felt his growing rage so I must have been reflecting because he just went mad I said almost nothing to him. But he was reacting as if we were having a massive arguement.
Thank you again illuminous-ops
Hmm some incredibly interesting data. Explains a lot of the things that I experience in my life. I was told by a psychology student at University once. " Matthew, you manipulate the people around you in such a way that they know you are doing it but can't do anything about it"
I never understood what she meant that was 25 years ago. This forum has helped me emmensly to understand Why?
Thank you for the post. The part about reflecting anger was particularly enlightening.
Excellent well done Sandy I believe you employed the "Grey rock"technique and deflection technique perfectly. One of the principals of Tai Chi is to use your opponents energy and deflect it. Allow their own weight to defeat them.
Am I allowed to say I'm proud of you?☺
Some excellent immediate practical advice from the others also.
An Empath has incredible potential power I feel you are beginning to tap into it. You go girl hugs Matthew
Hi Sandy I'm not sure if what you are describing is a form of bullying but it feels like that to me. Suffices to say I am no stranger to bullying. I think being sensitive opens us up to it.
Remember being an Empath means that 99.99% of what you are feeling in close proximity to people is THEIR feelings. If you feel fear it is their fear not yours.
I have had great success with Elise's visualisation technique of a dial and knob I picture it and label it "Other people's feelings within a 10 meter radius" then with my eyes closed I turn it down slowly to one.
I have also adapted the label to my name Matthew in an attempt to see how I am really feeling but turn it up to 8 or 9 this is a work in progress.
Finally the biggest impact on the would be bullies in my life, was through the practice of Tai Chi. It took a long time, maybe five years, but it changed my life. I have been practicing for over fifteen years now. Seek it out, it is very subtle but if it suits you, for it is not for everyone, you will become stronger than you ever imagined and people like this Woman will be insignificant to you.
Good luck for Monday and the job seeking hugs Matthew
I have read your response a number of times So_exausted_from_users it hasn't felt right to reply till now. Your reference to the mental health system rang very true and gave me a snap shot of perhaps shared experience even though I live in Wales UK. In fact the entire response I could have written myself today but not two months ago. As you can probably appreciate this was a touch erie two months ago, but a lot has happened since then.
It was good to be able to relate and see that I am perhaps not a freak of nature and that it was not all "In my head." So thank you for that. The idea that being an Empath is a valid medical condition is intriguing. I suffer from bipolar disorder. And have been able to reduce the amount of medication I need to cope. Actually knowing that the panic attack I was feeling on the bus wasn't "Mine" and being able to use Elises volume (God sent) technique to literally turn down the emotions of the people on the bus and in other ocean of emotion environments has reduced my overall mood swings to a more manageable level.
All in all apart from my Father dieing it's been a good two months. He had been miserable since my Mother died in March and kinda gave up.
How do you FEEL inside about her AJ. When you close your eyes is it her face you see? When your phone beeps does your heart jump just in case it's her?
The lies we tell to ourselves as Men hurt us the most.
If the moment she is in your arms you never want to let go, she is not just a friend.
Trust me I have been there. Her name was Emma she wanted to be friends so that is what I settled for, but I loved her from the first time she hugged me and kissed my cheek.
Good luck and Dare Greatly.
Ok so no attempt to learn about Women is pointless whether she is an Empath or not. The fact that you are taking the time is honourable. May I suggest ' What every Man should know about Women' a utube video by Teal Swan.
Maybe take the empath test yourself, you may be surprised.
Hi aj. You have indeed asked some interesting questions. I would echo Karen, what is it you are looking for? I get the feeling maybe your a guy or girl who has a romantic interest in your friend. If you are looking for tips to get closer to her I would personally suggest being straight with her. We empath's tend to spot false motivations. In my experience if a woman wants to get close to you she does so in a direct manner.
Off course these are my personal opinions I hope I have not offended you, but you did ask ☺
Ahh I'm sorry I didn't mean to upset anyone Elise. Reading my post back, it is a little raw. You gave me the confidence to write the truth of how I felt.
Your comment 'Its hard being like us' made me cry.
Judith Orloff's book looks very interesting thanks for recommending it. So_exhausted.
I met my first Empath in August this year. He is a wonderful man, and has helped me emmensly. In my personal opinion I am also an Empath and have been since birth, but was un-aware; no really I didn't have a clue, I'm forty five.
As a confused child I heard 'I love you' and felt hate and disdane. When I said 'I love you' I felt a feeling of dis-belief and doubt. When I am close to a person, touching them I feel their craving, as if It is my own.
If these things are true what more could be true. I was alone, I have no contact with my family. I thought they just didn't love me, but how must it have been for them to have their deepest fears reflected to them whenever I was there. To know that I could see every lie they said.
I would arrive with joy in my heart, to feel revulsion and fear behind my mother's false smile. If you attempt to show someone the truth, and the acceptance of that truth will cause pain, they will refuse to accept that truth, and actively fight it. I represented truth so they fought me.
Everything I knew about myself has to be re-evaluated. The possibility that almost all my past emotional connections have created false mirror image, emotional fractures, from the person that I was closest to at the time, is a real possibility. I am not seeking pity. In this moment I feel stronger than I have ever felt in my whole life. I am not alone anymore.
I have always asked the question 'Why' ? And never had a satisfactory answer. Now I have my answer, because I am an Empathic Human. Now I must build a new life. Thank you for listening. I hope in the future I can listen to you too.
I love your book Elise, it was in many ways a revelation and I can highly recommend it. The volume dial visualisation is proving very effective, as is the snow plough. Thank you for righting it.
