Newbie!

Snoopy24,

     The thing I like most about being an empath is that I can read almost everyone so well. I did not realize how much this helped me avoid trouble, until I met someone I could not read properly, and botched the whole relationship due to my misreading. I realized then how much I depend on this ability in normal day to day life. I have also been able to help others out by reading someone, when they were about to be taken advantage of, and sometimes the issue involved has been quite serious. I hope this helps a bit. I think we are all a bit sad now, being in this ongoing, highly unnatural situation for human beings. We empaths are feeling the sadness of those around us as well. Taking walks out in nature is almost always a great idea, and even if it doesn't help lessen your sadness, there are so many other benefits!

The liars


Community

That PDF was very good, thanks for posting the link. My emotions were manipulated in the way described in the article for a very long time by someone. I do not think he knew he was doing it, and his reason for doing it was to have his mind control his emotions, since he was a person who believes emotions to be worthless. The ethical implications of the abilities described in the link are very important and all too tempting for our shadow sides. 

Recently, I'm D.O.N.E. with putting up with constant liars and have found my best strategy with them is to casually repeat one of their lies back to them, word for word, just the way they were thinking it. This results in that person voluntarily removing themselves from my life, which is exactly what I want. There have been no confrontations, which may scare a lot of us off from doing this. So far, the fear they feel has just caused them to run, literally.

Welcome Snoopy24! It does sound like you're an empath, or at the very least an HSP, which stands for highly sensitive person. You may want to click on the Help For Empaths section at the  top of the page, just to the right of Forums. There are lots of resources there for general help for empaths.

The Great Reset


Community

I think most of us would love to cuddle somebody right now after all this endless social distancing! I'm lucky that I am married. This morning, a friend came over and stood 6 feet away giving me a virtual hug, since her work exposes her to lots of people. I feel really sorry for people who live alone right now, especially people my age or older who don't know how to use zoom, so they can at least see people.

The Great Reset


Community

@ Layla,

     Thank you for the kind words. I am almost certainly a lot older than you are and have been through a lot of pain, and not just the kind that comes from being an empath, and I guess that shows sometimes, and other empaths can pick it up. I am very spiritual, but not religious. I know for sure there is an after life from experiences I've had. I do meditate outdoors as well as indoors and do chi gong outdoors almost every morning.  I agree that focusing in on anything that is calming, like a tree waving in the breeze, for example, can produce a calming of the mind.

The Great Reset


Community

@Zacharias,

     I hear you on the city. I live in one of the largest, most densely populated areas in the USA, and can't leave because my husband doesn't want to leave. The neighbors on both sides of us are quite dark. I have increasingly separated myself from the outside world as a result, and am experiencing derealization. Having a good imagination and visualization capabilities provides an escape valve for us empaths, though it can be overdone, as in my case. I am glad you can get away in nature to recharge. I sit and look at my garden and the water birds flying overhead and that does help.

Near Death Experiences?


Community

Zacharias,

That was beautifully written! You might think about doing something with it, or with writing in general....just a thought.

Near Death Experiences?


Community

Excellent article. Thanks for posting it. There are loads of IANDS videos on YouTube if anyone wants to go in depth on some of these NDEs. I was declared dead once, but don't remember anything like this. I wish I did! To me it seems obvious we are stuffing a mere fraction of ourselves into magnificent, but nevertheless very limiting physical brains when we come to earth.

@Zacharias,

         Very well put. I wish I could  stay that detached. I try, but sometimes this looks like the darkness is winning, and I fall back into a reactive pattern w/o thinking. I hope it is just the darkness before dawn, as they say.

The Great Reset


Community

@hop-daddy,

Thanks for pointing this article out. The article is way too long for most people, but from what I did have time to read (scanned the rest), it covers the whole outline of what the dark side is up to pretty well. He does not offer solutions though, and I, for one, am sick of reading more fear porn from everyone who is yelling that the sky is falling, but offering no ideas of what to do about it. It raises my blood pressure but gives me nowhere to go and nothing to do to feel anything other than powerless. The manipulators are ten steps ahead of us, as always, and are blaming the Pres. for the very things that they are doing, as usual. I think T-lily is right that people are very brainwashed and playing their parts to perfection. Divide and conquer. The dark is required by some kind of universal law to show us what they intend to do to us. Then, if we allow it, the karma is on us, not them. This is just the way psychopaths think; not a coincidence, imo. The Hunger Games is one example of them showing us our future.
