Real Psychic Experiences



Good day everyone, I'm an empath but an untrained one... I knew I was an empath just a few years back, but I started feeling it when I was still a child. The very first time I notice this was when I first watched a movie where an arm and leg of a man were cut off and I could feel the pain on the exact spot, but since I was little that time I think it was normal for everyone. Empaths can feel other peoples emotions and when I was a child I don't know the difference between my emotion and others, so I can easily be overwhelmed with huge crowd, the result was I became a cry baby and since I'm a guy my classmates tend to mock and bully me, so I practice to keep my emotions intact and hidden from other people and I became a loner. Now that I'm older I kind of like to tell that I'm good at hiding my emotions, always smiling even though I'm hurting inside or keeping a "poker" face. My recent job was more like a home for me since most of the people there are open minded and believe in psychic, there was even another empath there but unlike me she was hyperactive and outgoing. The most comment I heard from them was they can't read me and that's bothering them since they are used to reading people, they even let me go to one person that they know who was a much more powerful psychic and I think he can't read me either but in the end of our session I got a terrible headache. The shield that I've unknowingly put up from my childhood experience was sometimes strong enough to even disrupt the internet and mobile connection around me, but at the same time it's too thin that I get very overwhelmed with a huge crowd or loud voices. I unknowingly put it up too strong before that one of my colleague didn't even see me sleeping on the stairs, I've gotten earlier on the office that time but I don't have a key so I decided to take a nap on the top of the stairs where anyone can easily notice me.

The question is, is it ok for me to put up this kind of shield? It's a shield that blocks me from others but it's not blocking others for me. Any tips on the subject will also be appreciate

Awh a fellow empathy, join the company. The fact that you can separate yours and others emotions out is good. However repressing your own emotions is very dangerous, it cause a backfire of emotional energy. Your shield is and impressive and on the same token rather dangerous. You should shield yourself, but your headaches are your body's response to overuse or misuse. You need to continue develop your powers, but you are already strong so it shouldn't be too hard.

Hello Emmanuel,
I am also an empath and can sympathize with you very much.
Putting up a shield to keep others from reading you may be helpful at times, but keeping it up constantly will probably not help you feel better. If you want to use a shield, which usually you must sometimes, I would advise you strongly to try controlling when you canand ccannot feel others' emotions. Blocking your own from others is a useful skill, but doing it all the time can get painful.
You will need to practice, but over time you may find you can choose how much you receive and in what way.
Meditation and self-awareness will help you. Once you understand your own emotions better rather than hide them, as you are from yourself just as much as from others, you will better be able to distinguish between whose emotions are whose and choose which you want to block.
You are already strong and it sounds like you could accomplish this.
The headache you had was from the draining effort required to keep up your shield. Try becoming conscious of the shield first. Get to know it and then take control.
I hope you continue to be able to speak with others in your life about this. It will help.
Best of luck,

not really sure, but I'm learning from it 😁 😁 😁

Although they are saying that I'm selfish on giving information since they can't read me

You are very good at it because you can hold it almost all the time without being mentally exhausted, since you have learned it from childhood. As you know well that this psychic shield is your own mental creation by the use of your imagination and belief. Experiment and make it work the way you want. To let some one read you requires that you remove it or weaken it, resulting in the attack that you had. Is it really what you want? Learn from it.
