Real Psychic Experiences

Empath, Something Else Or Just Plain Mad

 

I am extremely sensative to emotions and vibes (as I call them) - I don't feel other peoples pain, but it seems that I can sort of read their minds as well, will sometimes say what they want to say, find myself interrupting people constantly and get irritated if they want to finish their story, as I already know the end. Certain people I can not tollerate (especially negative people) and they drain me completely. I would like to know how to control these feelings as I suffer from permanent headaches and sometimes feel as if my head is going to burst when there are too many emotions. I also see and feel spirits (or whatever they are). I will walk into a house and feel negative vibes or spirits. I will even tell you exactly which room has the most negativity. I am extremely sensative to smells as well and can even taste them, I want to throw up if I don't like a smell and get a headache. The last exorcism where I was present, I could taste the demon (s)! I have turned to alcohol as this is the only way that I switch off, which is not a good thing, but I don't know how to deal with this. I drink anti-depressants as well, seems to make me feel better. I am also very interested to chat with other people with the same or simillar gift, if it is one. I can not spead to anyone about this as other people don't understand and really think I'm a bit crazy, even my own sister thinks so and hates it when I go on these sites as she says, it is evil (she is a huge Christian) Am I an Empath or do I suffer from another disorder or am I just plain mad?

Hi Ann-Lee!
I joined this site so I could respond to you.
*huggles*

First and foremost, you are not alone. There are so many of us.

There are ways to shield yourself from the negative or any emotions that you do not wish to feel. If you are on Facebook, I belong to a FB Empath Support group full of people who are empaths and going through similar experiences that you are going through.
We all have different versions of the gift and there are others who also are sensitive to spirits and negativity.

If you are interested (and anyone else too!) you can find our group here:

*huggles* and blessings,
Kris

You're welcome Ann-Lee. I think you're correct. I am female, and those who know me have used the same words to describe me. Until they do get to see me angry 😆

Oh, and Matrix - you are definately a male. I sense this of each person's whos' story I read, I can tell if they are male or female. Hope I am correct, and hope I'm not making my name...a...s...s!...? Lol... I see you do have a bit of a sense of humour, I'm a mad thing and enjoy making jokes.

Matrix_Wolf_Spirit - Thank you so much for your advise. I have found myself retreating to the graveyuard lately...strange, but its the only place where I can get away from everything and everyone and feel at peace there. I would love to know more about your religion and what you have found to be right and wrong with other religions as you mention on your profile page. I had a look on the net about Shamanism and find it extremely interesting, if I may ask are you a born Indian (in this life). I am so afraid I say something to offend people on this site, so If I do, I apologise. For some reason I have the utmost respect for you and sense that you are a very powerfull being (the colour black comes to me when I try and read you), hope I said that correctly. I feel you are a very old soul and very wise and am a bit afraid of you as well, but I think that is more respect and admiration. I would love to learn more from you if you don't mind?

Lunicorn - thank you so much for your imput and advise. I'm very new at this so all information is good information for me. I will look on the web, anything and everything is obtainable there. May I say something, without offending you - I sence that you are a very humble, kind, good natured person, female as well, am I correct?

Ann-Lee: We may be in two different time zones but we still got this which will be here until we get on or check it. Even e-mails help get to people quicker if they forget to come onto here haha.

Anyways. To feel calm like what Lunicorn said. Having a spot secluded from everything is really the best way to go or my way which is go into nature and feel the natural energy which can be calming. Lunicorn has said many things that I have even told some people to do. Just depends on you as a person. You need to find that calming thing and do it. Lunicorn found it in a form of crystals and animals.

For religions. Wicca, paganism, or what I call my own religion which ties into Native American spirits and the magick or the other two stated.

And finally about past lives. That can be tricky. I won't tell you what I did to get mine revealed because it can cause Multi-personality syndrome which I have it not mild but its there. The safer, less wreck-less way. I will teach you but will have to wait because I have to look through all my books of knowledge I have. Haha. That's a lot but the one you have seen on my profile doesn't even compare how many I have unlocked from many different time periods as well. In total I have about 12 to 13. Each one attached to an emotion on how they lived their lives or how they died. Luckily your not going to get taught what I did because that would add on to your stress levels because I always hear voices in my head and sometimes laugh when they talk or come out as me. To keep my sanity I have to remind them all. Each one that I'm the original and they are all dead but cannot take me over.:)

You're welcome Ann-Lee. I'm happy some of what I said helps you.
I completely understand what you said about wanting to shut your brain off because you think too much. That's always been one of my biggest problems. It used to keep me awake for hours and made meditation seem almost impossible.
When I first started meditating, I used guided meditations and binaural beats that I'd find on youtube. I also turned part of my large closet into a "meditation room", nothing fancy just a dark, quiet place where I could hide from all outside distractions. It was just a pillow on the floor and a few candles, but it helped. Eventually I was able to calm my mind and focus without any of this.
With shielding I tried many different methods I found online. Some of them seemed to helped a little, but the most success I had was when I got some crystals. I started carrying hematite and focusing on it when I'd feel overwhelmed. One day when concentrating on it I saw (in my mind) the energy of the stone swirl around me forming a protective bubble. I think shielding is personal for everyone and you'll have to find what works for you.
I know what you mean about nature and the headaches. Last night I had a terrible one. No matter what I did it wouldn't go away until I went outside for a walk. However when I came back inside, it returned almost immediately.
I have a cat and dog. The cat helps me the most since she's the more calm one. I just focus on her mood and tune out all other emotions I feel. Unlike yours, mine is generally the more distant type but she always seems to know when I do need her.
And I think you are possibly the first person to ever call me "normal" 😆

Matrix - I don't mean to be anoying now, but I read your profile and find it very interesting. Lately I have been very interested in my past lives and feel that someone is trying to connect with me (nothing specific happened, I just have that thought, maybe they came to me in a dream, wich I don't recall completely), but I have a strong longing to find out how to connect, can you help me. I'm very afraid of connecting with the wrong entity, but you seem to have much experience. The people in my life at the moment don't mean much to me, except for my children (2 sons 15 & 19, who also have special gifts, they are truly my children), I have a longing for someone whom I know exists, but I can't reach them. Hope you understand. I would like to discuss religion issues with you as well as I have not found a religion that makes sence, or puts me at ease, I practice a few of them, I basically do what my instincts tell me. I see we are in complete different time zones, hahahha... 😆

Lunicorn - I like that about what you said about getting good energy from pets, do you have pets and if so what are they? I have a great connection with cats, certain cats, I love cats. My one cat connects very well with me, he talks to me and is around me all the time, I love him to death and he makes me feel soooo good. Its so nice chatting to "normal" people, people like me. 😁

Thanks Matrix_Wolf_Spirit - something I forgot to mention is that I'm 40 years old now and have only started investigating this gift over the past few months. My husband committed suicide, so I was living with my mom, which completely killed me, she is extremely negative, it even get to me when I talk to her over the phone, so I'm trying to avoid her. Now I'm living with a boyfriend, who also upsets me tremendously, he has his own company and is permanently stressed and I can't handle those emotions, they are too much for me, too negative, I need to move out. This is how this affects my life. My sister upsets me, because we all have our own beliefs and I respect hers, can't she respect myne. I'm not going to go into detail how I feel about different religions, but I'm more spiritual and have turned a bit Wicca as well, as it brings me closer to nature, which is my only retreat at the moment. This explains my headaches, sometimes if I'm around certain people, it feels like my head is going to burst. Thank you so much for your positive input and for making me feel normal - I need to learn how to meditate. I have so many questions? 😊

Thank you Lunicorn - I clearly understood what you said - thank you. I have never tried meditation and realize that this is my only way of actually switching off (I often say, I wish I could just switch my brain off for a few minutes, as I think way too much!) I would like to know how to meditate properly and maybe also to do shielding. I love cats, animals in general and nature. And at do retreat to my garden and animals and nature when things get too much. I would appreciate your help - thank you for your kind words. By the way - I did not realize the sleepy mode as I'm in one right now. 😊

This sounds so much like what I've went through most of my life. I've only recently gotten where it no longer overwhelms me.
It felt like everything would build up throughout the day leaving me stressed and with a massive headache most days. The only things that helped me were salt baths, meditation, and focusing on the good emotions I could feel from my pets and others.
Eventually I learned shielding which I had to focus on often until I got where it comes almost automatically. Now, for the most part, all I need is to remind myself that they're not my emotions.
If you have any questions let me know, and I'll try to explain anything I can. I'm not sure if this was detailed enough. I just woke up, saw this, and had a strong urge to try to help. Forgive my sleepy scatter brain 😆

No your not mad or insane. What you got is a gift like me. I can feel different energies and just this morning when meditating to find inner peace I got an extreme headache from just being overloaded with energies around me.

To get to your question though. To deal with getting less energy flows or emotions into your mind. You have to meditate and turn off the switch or find your inner peace within your body and mind so you can turn it off and on or receive less "traffic" as I call it. Don't be put down by your sister. That creates you being more emotional and more feelings come up. Meditation can go a long way or even doing something like getting away from the place and interact with nature may help you more maybe with this overload problem.:)
