Finding Out Who I Am


I am 22 years old and have always felt different. I had no way of putting this into words to explain to my family how I felt so I always kept it to myself. I would hear random voices in my head; sometimes they would address me by name, and sometimes they would just be random sentences. I've also always been able to tell when someone is experiencing an emotion, whether they are happy, sad, angry, etc. I just assumed I was good at reading people; I never looked beyond the surface because I grew up being told I was just "overly sensitive". I've also struggled for a long time with my emotions and being able to control them or understand why I am feeling a certain way. About two years ago, I obtained a bad concussion and the months following, I had struggled even more with my emotions and keeping them in check. I could be sitting in my classroom taking notes and out of no where I feel multiple emotions fighting inside my gut; I am overwhelmed with happiness, then frustration hits me, and then sadness tries to take over. I couldn't explain these experiences with emotions and voices in my head so I went to a doctor. I've been told I have depression and immediately was told to try all of these different medications without talking to any type of therapist first. It has been two years now since that diagnosis and no medications have been able to curb my troubles or get a handle on my emotions. I am becoming very anxious and way past the point where I feel uncomfortable being around crowds (family gatherings, malls, etc.). When people argue or fight, I feel angry and upset with them and end up feeling guilty after. When I see someone experiencing something joyful, I immediately get this tingling feeling in my gut and it spreads all over my body and being to cry in joy. These are just some examples. I cannot explain what I am going through so I am taking to asking more questions about empathetic abilities. Maybe my family is right and I am just overly sensitive, but if there is even a small chance something else is taking place, I need to know. If anyone can help explain my feelings and experiences, I will be forever grateful!

What you're feeling is known as the empathic overload. When I first got, well, thrown into all of this kind of thing that was the very first thing I experienced. I could just know when someone I had feelings for was upset, and I could message them and talk to them about it. They always asked how did I know, and I never really had an answer for them. Later on I was online in a chat room with some other people, and I just had this feeling to talk to someone specific in there, so when everyone else left, me and them started talking and they really helped me out in understanding everything that I was going thru. That's why I try to help people that I do, once before when I was lost and confused someone did for me, and without them I would still be that lost kid.

Talking from experience the first thing you need to do is start recognizing these feelings inside of you, as they continue you'll start to have the thoughts "I'm feeling this but I shouldn't be, this isn't mine" and that's when you'll be consciously feeling it, but knowing it isn't you whos emotion that belongs to. Also, on a side note, you're probably getting the headaches each time you're feeling these kinds of things, it's normal, and they will go away in time. As you continue to grow, you'll develop further. The next biggest advice I can give you is learn to control the connections that you make. When you first start out you'll make connections with anyone around you. Learn to control this and to start only making connections with the ones you want to connect with. This overflow of connections is what's causing the major empathic overload you're feeling. The next stage in empathy would be going from emotional to physical. Once this starts to occur you'll be able to connect with people on an even deeper level. Also with me specifically I've always had a very scientific mind and view point, and even thought this is in a "supernatural" kind of world, it's actually a big part of science. If you wish to learn more about Empathy, or hear more about what I experienced through it, feel free to e-mail me, I can even teach you the science of how it works if you'd like:p

You are an empath like me!
Oversensitive is just what they tell you so you may comprehend more. If you were oversensitive, it'd actually be at a lower intensity.
First step is to separate your own emotion from the crowd, don't be afraid to get your point across to yourself that you don't want to deal with that right now.
I always feel small in crowds, pep rallies are terrible for me...I'm slowly getting over it, though. Start with small places and move up. You can do it! It just takes time. 😆
If I were you I'd go to a good, down-to-earth person who listens. Just someone who will understand, you know? That's helped a lot.
Best of luck, my friend!

You are a part of a broad awakening. One of many I've seen here who are trying to wrap their heads around these unexplained emotional stimuli. Humanity is going through a shift, we are finally realizing our interconnectivity. Your empathetic and telepathic experiences are simply manifestations of what is to come. Try to remember to guard yourself. Don't close your heart as many do, which is much like turning off your phone because telemarketers are annoying but then how do your loved ones connect with you? You must keep your heart open. Forgive those that hurt because any forget what it's like to have an open heart, so they minimize and justify the emotional damage they cause because they don't understand it. When you are struggling or down on yourself, close your eyes and consciously relax your body, as you begin to lose awareness of your physical body try to imagine yourself connecting with unity consciousness and the love it can offer. Sorry if I'm not making sense, I'm just speaking from my own limited experience based on my own limited perception. I hope you find the joy in your life and if you have questions, I always have speculation. 😉 PS: I've found everything makes more sense when I consider emotion to be a form of communication, much like words but more complex.

I have to wonder, what is the point of you running around saying basically all of these people are sinners. Do you really think they think anything of you more than annoying bible thumper pushing your beliefs onto them. You do realize that repels people from you, and damages your own religion.

Also, constantly referring to your site in every post isn't allowed here.

Some people are more sensitive than others. When you feel stuff/emotions from others, or from yourself, start praying for them, or for yourself, to JESUS or to the Angels... They know what to do! Leave everything to them, and don't be anxious! You're not God, to fix everyone's problems! Just pray and relax. Read and DO the bible, and also you can pray and fast for your -and others'- problems. Avoid channeling and comunicating with unspecified 'spirit guides', aliens, or 'dead relatives', through meditation or ouija board... Because once you open up the door of your mind and soul to them, they can reak havoc with you, and oppress/possess you, because they're probably NOT from God... Evil spirits, imposters! Beware of these occult practices! Visit the sister website: 'real life angel and demon encounters'. Good luck. STAY SAFE! Timfaraos [at]

It sounds like you are an empath (feel what someone else feels). You should learn grounding and protection heres a helpful site

You are certainly a very sensitive empath. I would recommend to meditate and shield yourself from the bombardment of emotions. Nothing unusual going on really. You are just at a whatchamacallit...awakening? Well, some point of time when your abilities are at its strongest point in development. Just meditate and you will be fine. What I do to meditate is that I just imagine being at a place I want to be, or simply let my thoughts flow by until nothing is there. For shielding, just imagine a ball of golden white light surrounding your body and program it by simply thinking what you want to let in and keep out.
