Being Sensitive Or Is Empathy?


First, I want to say thank you for taking the time to read my story. This is a first for me but I really want and hope to get some feed back so I can understand what I'm dealing with.

I'm an army brat and I would say from the age of 3 through 16 we moved alot. I've lived in 4 different states and Germany 3 times.

I remember living in Germany, early 80's and often at times wondering if I was seeing a female ghost in my room at night or if I was just dreaming. At that time my 2 younger sisters would often ask me why was I in their room late at night? I can tell you. It wasn't me. So they were also seeing her.

When I lived in Oklahoma, mid 80's I had a wicker rocking chair in my bedroom and at times I would see it rocking back and forth on it's own. At other times I would see a girl sitting in it. And she would be rocking it. I don't know who she was or what she wanted but when we moved I left the chair.

I've had many moments over the years. Where I would pick up the emotions of others, but NEVER understood what it was or why I was feeling the way I was.

I'm a happy go lucky kind of person. I'm a talker. I'm friendly to everyone. And it drives me crazy being around a person who is mean or negative or grumpy about everything and everyone. I can't handle moody people. The emotions have me going in every direction. I try hard not to let it effect me but I have yet learned how to do that so I tend to stay home a lot.

I'm a very emotional gal, which drives me batty too. When I have PMS, most of the time I'm very weepy over everything; music, tv shows and those close to me. Ugh. I can't watch tv shows where people are getting hurt or there is lots of blood.

Loud and excited people tend to make me nervous or give me a headache and make me want to go hide. I don't care to be around a lot of people as it makes me jumpy.

Over the last 6 years I've noticed it more often. I don't see or hear but I feel when there is a ghostly presence around me. I get the jitters like I've had too much coffee. It will just hit me. I get the shakes, sometimes I will have to walk outside to calm my nerves.

My sister-in-law lives in a house with a few ghost. A older male who likes to bang on doors and walls. The other being a female spirit, that was murdered in the house but before I knew any of that. I was telling her what I was picking up on my own. Whatever was there liked her kitchen. Then I got to experience having the female spirit go through me! I was overwhelmed with sadness, freezing cold (it's summer time and the house was hot.A/C off) and sat there and cried my eyes out! At that moment I didn't understand. Meanwhile my sis-in-law and husband thought I was CRAZY! S oot, I did too. But then it hit me. I just knew it was a female spirit and she wanted me to feel her. To know she was there in that house.

It's been confirmed that a murder took place there in the early 80's. She will not leave the house. She likes to play and make noises in the kitchen. Plays with the radio. Cutting it on and off and the tv too. And she always comes around me when I go to visit. It gets extremely cold around me and my nerves at times want to jump out of my skin. And I'm very emotional.

The house I live in. For the last 2 years. I sense a presence here. Not all the time but enough that I recognize the signs. The hair stands on end. My nerves are jittery. I'm nervous. I get that feeling someone is so close by I'll get goose bumps on the back of my head or neck. I wake up in the middle of the night feeling as if someone is standing over me or close by. It's un-nerving.

I've been told by someone who is very psychic that I'm a sensitive and the color around me is yellow. And I can tell you being that close to him. The energy was insane. But he's moved and I'm left trying to figure this all out.

Please tell me I'm not crazy and how do I learn or figure this out?

Thank you both!
Shielding is something I have not done because I really didn't know what or how to do it. I've read where others have talked about it but no one really explained. Now that I have an idea...I'm going to try shielding myself and see how that works.
And yes I'm always the one who ends up knowing everybody's problems... Many times I'm asking myself WHY?!? 😭 Some moody people rub off on me and as much as I try to not let that happen... It does and I hate that because it takes a bit for me to get back to my normal self.😕
Again...Thank you both for replying back... Trying to find someone who is going through the same thing or experience the same things is really hard... Without folks thinking you're crazy! And I really don't think I'm crazy! 😊 xo

Wow...reading your post is like reading the experiences of my own life. It can be very difficult to deal with. I just recently confirmed for myself that I was an Empath.
Shielding yourself helps a lot. All you have to do it find a quiet place where you can feel comfortable. Outside or in your favorite chair, anywhere your comfortable and without distractions. Sit there and focus on breathing. Visualize that you are inhaling positive energy from around you and exhaling all the negative. Visualize a white shining cord coming up from the middle of the earth and going straight to your feet. While breathing, imagine the white light filling your body from your feet all the way up to your head, where it comes out of the top of your head like a fountain. Then imagine that light surrounding you like you are in an orb of white energy. Also, while you are going through this you can say a prayer.
For Example, Dear Lord, Surround me with your white light. Surround my with your loving protective light. Let no harm come to me or mine. Let nothing with ill intent cross your light. (Add your own thanks) In your name I pray, AMEN.
I have been practicing this and mediation and it really helps. I know that there are something that I can't block but it helps me get through the day. Mediation can also help your become more aware of your abilities and also help you discover ones that you didn't know you had.

Well for starters I've experienced similar things as you and I am a empath. Do people ever get really comfortable around you and tend to tell you their problems? I've been told by a friend that is very stubborn and doesn't talk about her problems that when I ask her about things she can't help, but to spill it all to me.
Have you ever tried shielding yourself when you are around moody people? I mean it tends to help when you shield yourself from their emotions. In my experience the moody people don't bother me I just tend to go with the flow of emotions, but if there are too many people at once it's harder to deal since I don't really shield myself. When I use to shield myself more often I would recommend doing it in when you have to be sound crowds. All of those emotions from everyone mix up and end up making me sick sometimes and you might get overwhelmed.
