Ghost of a Lady from the Deep South


Hi my name is Anthony, I'm an empath. Does anyone keep, or kept an Empath Journal? How has it worked out for you? In front of me is a woman about 23 or so... She does not like to be hot (I'm turning the heat off).

She grew up in the deep South, but she hates the heat. She died awhile back ago, I can tell by the way she's dressed (straw hat, flower dress,). Her name begins with a 'ca' sounds... Catherine! Okay, Catherine, she's shown me blood! She's the reason for my neck pain lately (I've had an AWFUL neck pain lately) I believe it has something to do with a lynching or a hanging, wow, she's saying that she can relate to the movie The Color Purple, she felt "closed?" (I'm not understanding). She loves sunsets. Oh boy, my spirit guide needs to help me out on this one. Taken? Cracked (whip)?. The sound captivates her, the sound of a whip.

I have to let this one go, does anyone ever recommend doing that? When something is just too strong for you to handle? They always come back (usually in my dreams).

I hope this doesn't sound made up to anybody, this is one of the reasons I joined this site, so that I could find people who actually believe in the stuff that I describe, owww, that hurt, she just put this burning sensation on my leg (no maliciously), she wants to talk with me... Anyway please answer my questions (asked throughout my story)

Thanks everyone

-Anthony J.

hi, what's it like to be a midium? I've always wanted to know. When I watch mediums on the tv I think it looks cool, and it must be nice to be able to tell people that loved ones that have passed on are with them. Is it anything like I imagine?

Thank you for your comments. Yes, the whole moving me around thing, it does happen rather often (not like throughout the day or anything thank goodness, but it's pretty common with me) and something has written in my journal before, but I was kind of in the way, I mean I was fully conscious and my hand just started moving and it was weird so I was sort of trying to control it and so my hand just kept jerking at first but then it wrote a sentence, but the writing was big and wobbly, it helped me though by what it wrote.
I try to close myself off from it most of the time. I want to learn to be able to open the channel and then close it off. Do you have any ideas? Like a visualization I could try or anything?
I'm glad you cleared that up. I wasn't sure if it was physical mediumship or not, because our late reverend at this church was a physical medium and she used a trumpet. I don't know if you will know what that is or not. She was a trance medium, but they also call her a physical medium because she used a trumpet. And I think ectoplasm is physical mediumship as well right? I can't do that! I don't mean it that way lol I'm just asking so I can get things straight in my head...

Most mediums are able to communicate with others more than just the dead. Such as Angels, Guides and such. Mediums tend to be able to communicate to a lot of diffrent types of energies postive and negative. Although I would refrain from the negative energies... The more you raise your vibrations the less they can influence you. Reiki is great for raising the vibrations of your personal energy.

The later part of your last comment you mention their ability to move you, your hands and such. That is like a partial physical mediumship. Physical mediumship is where they actually effect your physical person.It's not unusual to experience a little of that from time to time but if you experience it a lot you may be a physical medium as well and they are very very rare. 😁

Thank you very much for the comment you left. That really helps to clear things up for me. So I guess I am an empath and a medium... Okay got it.

Could someone answer a few questions? Ancestors communicate with me and I've been picking up on other people's ancestors as well which has been new, one lady yesterday just started crying, and also deceased pets. I don't think I've mentioned any of this on the site before, it's all a little weird, anyway, other spirits communicate to me too though. I used to get visions from the god of my old religion I don't know if that counts as mediumship or what that would be called... But other spirits too, angels, Ascended Masters, guides (and one of my guides is an angel), faeries as well. Does that count as mediumship. I think most mediums speak with guides, what about the other spirits that I'm able to communicate with?
I also have another question and I know this has to do with mediumship too. Sometimes spirits can move me around, like I'll be doing reiki and a guide will walk up behind me and my hands will start moving on their own, but sometimes spirits will move me in order to get something across, like they move to sit differently in the chair and I'm like oh, so you were big and fat when you were alive. Sometimes my guide will come up behind me and I'll feel her personality as well as mine and she'll move me to get things across or to help me. She's very regal and calm. I have to be careful though because lower vibration spirits will do it too if I'm not and I had some bad experiences with that. Does anyone know what that type of thing is?

An empath journal. Awesome idea! Thanks, I'm definately going to try that one. Yes spirits will do that... I get a lot of weird sensations from spirits. If your an empath that can not only take on emotions but also ailments, as it sounds like you are, the spirits will use that to communicate as well. They have to work through impressions to get through, so it can get a little confusing. From what you're describing it seems like she was a slave. Do you know if she was black? The slave owners always gave the slaves American names... Also she's in spirit, so she could of course be familiar with a movie from this time. Sometimes spirits use modern things to show me something even if they lived a long time ago and plus they are communicating to YOU and it's something she can put in your brain. But the physical thing, most empaths just pick up on emotions, but others pick up on physical ailments as well and some of us pick up on thoughts. Do you pick up on living people's ailments? I do and thoughts as well. Jeez, this is great talking to other empaths on here! Wish I knew some where I lived... Don't we all...

quads - I have recently gone back to work, life among the public again. And I have forgotten. I feel them strongly. Always have, but tend to keep myself a lot so people don't freak. Still people realize it, co-workers and customers. I feel and a lot and can block it, for a professional job, but my main job is being a mom. So there is a difference. I can be more open in a fun job like I have now. In a professional job (and I've a few), you have to shield yourself more so you try to fit in with the group. I think many people can feel, but have to separate themselves at times. Perhaps that's wishful thinking so I won't feel so odd. I do know that I know things and feel others. My co-workers are nice enough. My boss is the nicest, which embarrasses me. They mostly back away and are polite a lot.

Oh heck yeah. But I always attributed those impulses to A.D.D. And my obsessive tendencies.
What influence would you say spirit entities had on you before you tuned in to their presence? And do you think they were interested in you before you became aware, or do you feel they were drawn to you only after they recognized your ability to sense them?

Alot of the time it's hard for me to keep my feelings from meshing with those of others. We all have at least a small sense of empathy, it may or may not always go unoticable. I know that she was causing my neck pain because after she went away the neck pain went away, it was strictly for communication purposes. Spirits frequently "tap in" to our personal experiences and memories. This helps them to communicate with us with ease, ever had to sudden, irresistable urge to watch a certain movie, or hear a certain song? 😜

Hi... I dropped in to tell Anthony that Aramasamara has a thread (a better tomorrow) that mentions keeping an empathic experiences journal. I'm glad I did. What strikes me, reading the newest responses here, is that it seems as though the principles for keeping one's balance and boundaries and not being distracted from your own life are all things that apply to every one, no matter what degree of psychic and empathic ability you possess. And recognizing this makes it possible to acknowledge a greater degree of those abilities in my life. It isn't a question anymore of thinking "I'm not psychic or empathic therefore the issues being discussed have no bearing on me personally..."
Maybe it's a matter of how many plugs you've tried to jam into the surge protector. The current is the same, but sometimes we just have too many appliances running. Thanks, everyone!

I never have reoccuring dreams...never.

One reason is because I take care and understand all of my dreams at hand, most people that have reoccuring dreams don't understand the dream itself or take care of the problems they have in their daily life.

The neck problem could be to anything, go to a chiropractor, a good one and have it set in place on a routine, it's good for the body's bones to be in alinment.

Sarahan is right, I've made the mistake and sometimes on occasion still do being literally absorbed into others lives... People I don't even know. I find myself talking about this person and that person from every minute detail of what they thought about this person or who they are... But I rarely ever find myself talking about myself... Which is good and bad. But as she stated having boundaries are important or else you get into high anxiety issues living 'mulitple' lives.


Yes, I agree with you in that most of us mediums are also strong empaths, I communicate, but not that often in all reality, usually it just happens to be in the middle of nowhere pop up out of the blue type thing.

Though I find that one can communicate with almost anything where ever they may be

For me this including spirits

humans that are alive

others that are in the process of dying I call it a 'peace agreement'

others that have passed away

and so forth, in my perspective there really is no limit for a stop to communication

Ever medium I have ever met is also a very strong empath. I noticed sarahan had mentioned that even though the spirit seemed to be from a long ago time that it knew what "The Color Purple" was about.

That would not be unusual for a medium at all since spirits often use the medium's frame of reference and personal knowledge base and are usually aware of things that have happened since there passing.

I have noticed a lot of people on this website that communicate with spirits often refer to themselves as empaths but not as mediums. You can be a empath without being a medium. If you can feel the emotions and sensations of the living then you are a empath but if you also feel and sense the emotions of the deceased then you are empathic but you are a medium or you would not be able to communicate. There is the exception of ghost contact. Many people have experienced ghosts in many different ways. As far as ghosts are concerned you don't have to be psychic empath or medium to experience them. But if you are any of those things it will greatly increase the intensity of the event over those whom don't possess such gifts.
I just wanted to kind of of clear things up, if you are communicating with spirits other than just a ghost you can be sure you are a medium. And if its a ghost... Then well maybe you are a medium or you are just experiencing a haunting.
Tip to distinguish ghost from regular spirit. A spirit can visit you anywhere but a ghost is stuck in a general location. It may be a house or a city block but they will not operate outside of their location. I hope this helps I see so many potential mediums on this forum whom may not even realize the depth of their gift and that would be a shame if it never came to light.

Oops. You asked a question about whether anyone else keeps an empathic experiences journal. I've got two friends I'm aware of who are empaths. I'll ask.
I've got a question: how do you keep your boundaries sorted? It can be hard enough to recognize your own feelings and learn what you need to understand from them without doing anyone else's emotional homework.

How long have you been receiving empathic impressions and communications? I understand being an empath to mean you experience other (presumably live) peoples' emotions. You describe telepathic conversation (verbal) and clairvoyent impressions (visual) in addition to experiencing the physical pain of another person (deceased). Do you get emotional impressions? This woman seems to have lived in a bygone era (we hope) but she is familiar with "The Color Purple"? Very intriguing.

I didn't answer your question about Catherine. Sorry. I don't don't do that. I have neck pain too and dreamed a Union Soldier who got shot there. That was years after the pain started. I knew details. Perhaps we just pick up on the cosmic thing. He felt like me, but I'm a southern woman. Perhaps I just felt him. I don't go back often so puzzled. But the pain is pretty much controlled since this dream. I like knowing it got attention in some way.

I always sound vague. I hate that. Well, this vision shook and woke you up. Your life on earth will be pretty much the same. But, it will never be the same if you choose to sense. It's a spiritual job. You choose one, good or not good. Then you fly with it. But you can't be luke warm. That's too weak I think. And you have to be patient and ask. Most people can't go there. Some do. I think that I ask more than most. It's a little embarrassing, but ask what you feel is right.

Dear Quads - I read this a few times. Anger likes to latch on and relieve itself - but in the end it doesn't help. This has already happened. Let the memory fade. You have talent sensing so look for the white light and happy stuff. I do think this is the time, it must be, when the happy stuff is out there. We just have to go through the growing pains to reach it. I did. We aren't in a particularly happy or easy age. Other ages might pity us. But, we are the age of seekers. That's not terrible as long as we only allow the good stuff. For the weak, that isn't good news. Many of us are that way, seekers of the good.
