Relieving Someone's Pain by Taking It On Yourself


This is the remainder of my experience titled "Scary Dreams Coming True". It doesn't involve dreams anymore, because after the chain of dreams last summer I quit dreaming all together. This I thought was strange, not dreaming? However, I continued to know things before they happened.

For example while outside with my husband I said to him that my sister was coming up the hill and no more than 30 seconds later he spotted her car. We were not expecting her. This was the first time I said it aloud. At this point I began saying most of them aloud to validate that I wasn't just imagining it. Now the story gets a bit strange.

It is February 2008 and I just started dreaming again but not often, and still know little things before they happen. I quit talking about them though. This particular Friday night was ordinary, I had just watched my son's competition at school and got in my car to go home. The time was around 8:15pm. Just when I was pulling out of the school parking lot my body began to hurt.

By the time I got home about 20 minute later I was hurting pretty bad. I went in and sat on the couch, where my husband was playing with my youngest son. He immediately noticed that there was something wrong. I didn't know what but my whole body was hurting, even the tops of my hands and feet. He suggest later that maybe I was getting the flu and I agreed.

Between 10:00pm and 10:30pm the pain had got to the point I had tears. I wasn't crying from the pain, my body was. At that point my husband told me I needed to go to bed. I took his advice. When I woke the next morning and got out of bed, every muscle was sore. WOW! The pain was gone, but it left me very sore. I joke with my son asking him if he beat me up with a baseball bat or something while I was asleep. I told my husband I must had got hit by a train last night. It didn't seem like the flu to me I felt fine and had plenty of energy no fever, nothing else.

Later that morning my cousin called, her boyfriend had fell asleep at the wheel and rolled his car three times while on his way to visit her. (He is fine!) We didn't talk again until Tuesday. By Monday night almost all of my sore muscles were better. I told her what had happened to me and that I was feeling better now. He had left his home between 8pm and 8:30pm and got in the accident between 10 and 10:30pm. There were no witnesses to his accident. The car had rolled off the freeway in to a ditch on the side where nobody passing by could see it. He made his way out of the car and to the side of the freeway, tried to flag down some help, but no one stopped. He then walked to a gas station where he called my cousin and the police to get some help. She also told me that he said it was really strange because he wasn't hurting that bad.

However, by monday night he had started hurting and she had told him he needed to get to the doctor. My cousin believed I took his pain from him. She also believed that if he were feeling it there is no way he could have got out of the car and to a gas station for help. He was already very lucky to be alive. She also thinks that when my pain started going away I was giving it back to him. She also pointed out that she has notice this happen in the past with me but didn't want to say anything. I would probably have dismiss it then, but not now.

Another interesting piece to this is that earlier Friday my cousin had been over. When I left to watch my son, she left to go home and get ready to go to a late show when her boyfriend got there. When my pain began at 8:15pm or so I actually thought of a car accident and briefly wondered if she made it up the hill ok. But it was 4 hours later and I dismissed it. She and I are very close and in four hours if something had happened I would have gotten a call.

Yes, we can pray to God to take another person's suffering or illness upon ourselves, but we must ask for Him to strengthen us, because WE MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO BEAR IT. It's safer not to do this, but just to pray and fast for this person, for God to send His angels to help him or heal him. A girl in Greece, was 20 years old, when her father was diagnosed with the deadly hodgkin's disease, and she asked God in her prayers, to take the sickness away from her father, and give it to her instead... And God did it! The doctors were baffled, because they had NEVER found two members of the same family, with this disease! Her father went into remission miraculously, and became healthy. She died after a few years of suffering, and was berried. After 3 years in the grave, they exumed the body, and it was FRAGRANT AND INCORRUPT, WITH NO DECAY! LOL! (which is a sign of holiness). Her whole body is displayed in a glass coffin, in the monastery of Oinoússes, on the greek island of Chíos, her name: Irene Patéras myrtidiòtisa...R.I.P. JESUS said: ' Greater love hath no man, than to give his life as a sacrifice for his brother'. Amen.

I'll be glad to explain further and no you're not slow ha-ha.

Being an empath you not only see peoples emotions, you feel them... Absorb them.

Absorbing others emotions can be pure bliss and uplifting, other times it can be depressing and irratitating.

One needs to learn how to feel others pain, but at the same time treat themselves, and do not asborb all of their concentration and worrying on that person.

You cannot control everything, including how people feel, so you must try to block out emotions/pain or help to switch energy flows.

Try being comedic, offering help, but not trying to spend all your time helping them.

They need to figure out their own problems, and sometimes you feel others pain even more because you have problems of your own you need to sort out.

I find I myself have tried to cure others pain so I could forget about mine, but that isn't the right thing to do.

Find what makes you happy first, observe, but don't become trapped.

Is this making any sense?

Some tips:
Try doing visualizing techniques such as picturing yourself in a bubble, that surronds you completely, see the bubble exanding past the horizon on each side of you until it covers you, a bright white, or soothing colors such as green/lavender.

Do acupunture/reiki/meditation/dairy/ect

Try to think postitive and what you can do to make yourself in a better mood

Write other peoples emotions down on paper, then later go back and observe why you saw that emotion. At the same time on the other side of the paper write everything you felt that day regardless of what you felt from the other person. And see how it truely affects you.

Thank you everyone for sharing your comments. I really don't know what my experiences are all about. I have been struggling with them because they have become intence and more freaquent and I am having trouble dismissing them fearing more to come. Time after time I find myself saying "if this is what I think it is I can't handle it, and how can I make it stop".

aramasamara, Thank you for your comment. Could you possibly explain further. I am not sure I understand completely about what is not ok. I do not know what my experience was and am not sure if the incidents were related. What I do know however is that if they were, I had no control or warning. I know your comment will be of assistance to me if you could clarify it. Sorry I am kind of slow.

But, I have picked up on pain. I don't like it. You need to shield yourself in some way from hurting. Put up some kind of protective thingy, a white light, a wall, whatever, it's a mind thing. Know pain is there and try to help if possible, but hurting is no fun.

poised - I once thought it would be a good idea to be a nurse. I went through the years of science stuff. Loved it. Then had a first patient assigned. When I got there she was in a lot of pain, but the nurses were busy with someone crashing. They couldn't get her shot right away. I said, Let me rub your back. I remember when the nurse finally brought in her shot. She told them that she was fine. I was fine too. Oddly, my nurse teachers told me I'd have the same patient for several weeks. I looked at them like they were nuts. I told them she was about to leave. They told me no that she was chronic but not close to that. She passed a few days later so didn't get to see her again. After odd stuff like this, realized I was just too close. Changed to being an English major. My nursing teachers were relieved. Even in the science stuff I spooked them.

I've learned as an empath it is okay to let yourself feel their emotions, it is not okay to feel as if everything is in your power, your control and it is all your bundle of problems. It is good not to blame things on other people, but also not to blame everything on yourself.

You must realize that you cannot control everything, and to let it rest and allow it to occur.

Thanks for sharing! Being an empath, I spend a large amount of my time trying to figure out what is me and what is someone else. I have been in excruciating pain a couple of times where the doctors have told me absolutely nothing was wrong with me. But that hasn't happened since 1995 and I don't even know if it was associated with anyone else. It's good for the other person that they were able to get help. Who knows what would have happened if they were trapped in the car and were unable to move due to the pain they were in. They could've been there for a while before anyone discovered them.
