Can Anybody Help?


I have a question. For many years now, I have been, what I just recently discovered, an empath or clairsentient. I have always been the one everybody dishes problems out to. I have always tried making feel better, but that's not what I came to describe is being a good person. Usually, when a couple of friends hang out, I tend to start feeling the same as one of them. It has gotten to the point where a friend was sad, and I became very sad and almost depressed. I always do this. I will end up feeling what another person will. I tend to be very uneasy in crowds and I usually separate from other people. I am very outgoing and a fun, social person. It's just I don't know if I am ever feeling something, or it's someone else's feelings I am feeling. Another thing. More than a few times has one of my friends not been with me, or we haven't been talking, but I have a feeling of where they are or what they are thinking or feeling. Can anybody help me with understanding and possible developing these occasions to where I can control them and do better? Also, I have had dream occurrences and possible spirit communication that I would like help with. Dreams like knowing my grandfather who died before my 23 year old brother was born, and having a hint on how he died. And my grandfather having talked to and seen spirits before. I really just need help understanding what I may be experiencing and if you can, help me develop and nurture these abilities. I would like to help others if I can. Thank You.

What everyone has already said is so accurate, you sound very much like an empath and very likely you have other abilities. It is difficult and we are not like other people, we are much more open. So there comes a point where you need to learn to have boundaries and recognize and separate your feelings from others, it's not easy but with further understanding of what an empath and clairvoyant abilities is all about, the exchange and sensing of energies. You can find that division of the feelings, rather you will recognize someone else's feelings not as your own. And then once you master that you can move onto using your abilities for good purposes.:) keep posting and talking with people on here but also work at understanding the various levels of who people are... I would recommend a book called "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle, he explains in much detail the ego, he breaks down the levels of who we are very well which would help you understand I think what you are feeling and why. Its not an easy path but you have a lot of people here who can help you understand and work with it. My email is also posted if you have questions:)
Take care ❤

Hey there!

I am as well an Empath and it was hard for me to understand it at first. It took me forever to become at peace with it... Last year it took control of my life with all the negativity the empathy gave me from other peoples energy. I could help you understand it a bit better, since we're both teens.:D

Hi there, I experience the same thing as you do with feeling other people's feelings (I used to feel very upset on days like the 9/11 anniversary although my day may have been very good). I also avoid large crowds sometimes as it can feel like theirs 'too much going on'. The best way, I've found, to deal with lots of emotions coming to you at once, especially from family and close friends is to try to be slightly objective but still be supportive. (It's hard to explain but many psychic books I've read mention it). Also, have you looked into studying feng shui, it would help you with understanding the way energies work in rooms or large crowds? Also you could try studying tarot cards as you might be naturally gifted at reading them if you are able to get a good sense of the people around you.
I would say that reading books on how to improve psychic abilities and practising your abilities would help. A good book that help me is called the Psychic Pathway workbook. Hope I have been able to help. Bella

Hello, there, my friend ^_^ I have been in your position in the past too, when I realized who I was... I agree with mgeekafus, you are an empath or empathic. This gift, has to do with how pure your heart is therefore, try and keep your mind and heart clear. Also, development will come itself, since this is a gift that one can hardly deposit... Knowing what people feel and also being able to help them and lighten their weights is something magnificent but exhausting as well... So please make sure to keep some kind of balance... If you want further info, I have my email set on my profile page. Feel free to contact me anytime ^^

May God bless you ^_^

You're describing they typical empathist. Everything you've described seems spot on and perfectly normal. There is probably more to your gift than just the ability to walk a mile in someone else's shoes because I've noticed empathy is the biggest trademark of all the gifts. It seems like you've only scratched the surface in your self assessment, so keep true to yourself and continue soul searching.

I've been going through something similar lately mostly in regards to dating. I am often single and just broke up with someone after three months. If you check out my original story post you will see an example or two of why it was difficult. I only recently noticed that I had to do something about this. One thing I have learned over the last few weeks is you should never blame yourself for your feelings. The word "feeling" has meaning to both physical and emotional and both exist for a reason.
