Feeling Too Much


Lately my empathy has been getting stronger, when I'm around people I can feel their emotions even when I'm not trying or when I don't want to.

For example my family went to one of the many ANZAC day services and the whole time all I could feel was everyone's emotions and there was around 150 people there and it was all coming in at once, the worst was from the WW1 veterans, it wasn't just sadness they were feeling for their fallen friends they were remembering some of the events that had happened to them, from them there was so much fear. I didn't know what to do!

Now when I get near people this almost a wave of emotion hits me it can be very unnerving at times, feeling anger, depression, fear etc when part of my brain is telling me that there's no reason to feel this yet I can feel these all the time it just doesn't stop.

It even happens over distance too, there are a few people that I seem to have a strong connection with and I can feel what's happening to them no matter where they are and with them its not just emotion I feel when their sick or get hurt I know and many times if their sick I also feel the symptoms of it.

Its just getting a little bit out of control if there's anyone that can suggest a way for me to tone it down that would be greatly appreciated, I welcome comments or help of any kind.

Ha ha ha girlygirl89! That was how it first started happening to me. I remember I used to feel it through animals. Through the horses on the cowboy movies. I would cry and run out the room when they were shooting because I could feel that the horses were scared. I just chalked it up to my love for animals but now that I think about it, to this day I feel a connection with animals and they can sense that I am a human that won't harm them and they can trust. I can now also feel the emotion of people through television. I can even watch a show on the Crime Network. (I forget what its called) and solve the mysteries. Sometimes I have a dream about where the bodies are located. I can also stand next to a serial killer in my dream and watch him and he can't see me. Oh Lord - I'm so scared to tell everyone this dream I had about a serial killer. He hasn't been caught yet but I know he exists. The dream won't leave my head!

Isolation may help you a little but that may have the back lash of you feeling those others, you mentioned, that you always feel. I will stress meditation as a way to ballence the flow of the energy around you as well as through and into you.

This happens to me a lot. It can and does at times get in the way of work, because their emotions become a part of me. What I do is clear my mind of all thoughts and emotions, and counter them by focusing on a current task.

Before you go out, imagine a white light or another color around protecting you. Or a shield. Know that nothing can get through your protection. That others emotions will not be able to come through. You have to practice this. After a while it will work.

Oh wow... That is exactly what happens to me! There are some people that I have a really strong connection with... Like this one guy I know, but he lost his father, so often I feel depressed, like I am missing someone.

Ok, I have one way to help you get rid of the negative emotions from other people. Just go to a garbage can, get a bag, or go to a sink or something with a drain. Picture your body filled with a negative energy, and then breath out, picturing a portion of the negative energy go out and into the drain, bag etc. And then it being replaced with a posotive energy. Continue doing that until you feel like the negative energy is gone. Trust me it works!

Keep me posted on how you are doing this, it is nice to know someone else has to deal with the same things I have to deal with. I think that maybe I could use them to help people somehow. Not to mention, it is pretty funny to watch my friends try to hide the emotion! Haha. 😆

sorry but I've got nothing... But I have kind of a suggestion if you don't want to feel this way:
>stay away from people altogether for a month and see if it still happens.

Mat - Went to NZ years ago - beautiful country - mts and winding roads and beautiful wool sweaters! My husband was there about a year ago for a job thing and it was winter. He got cold... The people were too nice. Anyway, I do have a suggestion. When on my own, I put a mental wall around myself to some degree, depending on the people and how I feel. That's hard to explain but do-able. Block it and think of lighter stuff and think "protection up". When with my husband, I like to open up more. At those times, can feel other people and it can get overwhelming. If possible, I replace the blocking wall when needed. If too tired or unable, I just tell him the crowd is bothering me. He knows how I am. He watches me. So to some degree, he's always understood because I open more around him. I'm not psycho or nervous. I'm the calm one. I just feel people a lot. It happened today, the feeling, at Target with a woman handing a coffee cup at the snack place. I now take these things too much for granted. Hadn't thought of it until writing here. After our conversation, I spent awhile gathering my needed stuff, then started to leave. Glanced over at her working, not seeing me. Stocking stuff. Hoped, mentally, she would look up. I'm impatient so spent a second at this, and when she did, I waved. She waved back. Words are sometimes not needed. In real life, body language is good. Words are confusing sometimes. I don't talk a great deal usually, enough I hope.

Yes! I do! Oh, I thought it was just me! I am so glad that it's real and I'm not going crazy like I thought! It normaly happens with documentarys not so much with soaps and things, although that does happen too! 😲

I experience the same things but I also have a question. Does anyone feel other people's emotions while watching it on tv. Its been happening to me for the past week and I feel like I'm going crazy because first it was with real people who where around me. I just want to know if its possible... Because they're just actors you know. 😕

hi there! I understand what you are going through. Try meditating with a candle and insense (hope I spelt that right!). Then, you can try to block it out. Try with two people first, feel one, not the other. It will be hard, but it will get easier after a while. Then you can do that with more people doing exactly the same-feeling one emotion and blocking the rest off. Then you will be able to block all of the emotions coming from any one. And try to start blocking it off before you even get in to a room with lots of people in it. Good luck! 😊
