Is It Real Or Am I Imagining Everything?


I feel like I have just recently discovered my inner empath. I had been doing research on past lives and connections that I have with people in my life that are so strong and I can't shake it. Upon looking into this, I suddenly felt like I 'woke up' and feel like I have strong, intense feelings of things going on with family out of town. When I have reached out and expressed what I am feeling, its been blown off and I have been told that what I'm feeling is completely off. But the vibes I get are still so strong, I can't shake them. I've always been sensitive and extremely aware of other people's emotions, and when I'm around them, I can't help but feel like I take on the same emotions as them. Its strongest with anger and sadness and depression. Friends have always come to me for support. I'm starting to feel that something is going on, but not sure I'm imagining it or if it is legitimately empath abilities. I am suddenly being drawn to finding out as much as I can, and as much as my intuition is telling me it's one thing, self doubt is tell in me the opposite. Is this normal for someone who is just discovering abilities. I'm not aware of anyone else in my family that experiences things. Has anyone else felt these sort of emotions and felt a pull and feeling or 'vibe' that's so strong that you feel you can't rest until you know the truth? I think, looking back, that I've always been aware that I notice this with people around me, but thought everyone else experienced it. Is there anyone who can help me figure all of this out?

I believe more in reincarnation than a afterlife because I am a Athiest. I do not believe in reincarnation (past lives) because I do not know if reincarnation exist. I am just wondering if people believe in the afterlife or reincarnation (past lives) or both.

I started as an Empath myself. I didn't know what it was I was doing, but I knew that I could. I was in a chat room with a few people inside it, and there was one specific person that I had a draw to, I knew that I needed to talk to them. One after next people started leaving the chat room until it was just me and them. We started talking and they knew what I was doing and told me about being an Empath. They helped me understand what it was I was doing, and in the same way I started coming here trying to help people who are lost and confused like I was. Wanting to help other people doesn't mean you did wrong in the past, just means you have a good heart. People like us feel when people are hurting, and we try to take that pain away, and fill it with good. Energy can not be created nor destroyed only changed and moved. So if we take the bad energy away, we fill it with good and help them to feel better. I'm sorry to say but I wouldn't read those two books, that's almost 900 pages to read when there really isn't any need to. What you're experiencing is normal, you wish to know more because that's what we do. We start to open up and seek more knowledge and wisdom. Why I was saying to send me an E-mail was that I can answer your questions, and ease you into things, not give you an information overload. We have a long history, and an interesting one, but know you're not alone, and it's a normal thing to be confused and be seeking answers. A few tips I'll give you straight out, the headaches will get better, and eventually go away, it's your body doing something it's not used to. Learn to separate your emotions from the others you feel so that way you can recognize emotions that aren't yours. And read about making connections, one of the biggest problems with beginning Empaths is something known as the Empath overload, you make connections with everyone you meet and eventually have a meltdown of too many emotions. Learn to connect with only those you wish to. As you continue to learn and grow your gift will develop further, but I wouldn't worry about that right now. Right now you'll be feeling the emotions of other people, and a slight bit of telepathy, if you know the way they feel about something you'll know the way they think as well. And I know it'll be hard, but try not to message someone when you know they're sad, they'll catch on quite quickly, and will think it's really weird how you always know. People can't put on a mask to hide behind when it comes to us, but sometimes we need to just be there, not try to fix what's wrong. People have to work through their own problems sometimes. Now keep in mind I can only help based off my own experiences, that's all I have to give from. Hope this helps.

Dear Coverdell

Imagine that in previous life you were in a position to help people and you didn't do nothing to help (this could or could not be your case). Now you are experience the need to help people this is your commitment for this life. You received some tools (mediumship) to sense other people feelings. One wonderfull way to do charity is moral charity this means listen and give support and guidance for good.

That is your purpose in this life (among others of course), congratulation!

You need to study better to understand this dinamics and how to be prepared to give this support, as we call "fraternal assintance".

I suggest you to read these 2 books for a start:


Dont skip even the introduction, read it all, and study it all!

If need some help you can email me for more details: leonn [at]
Good study!

Knowledge is both a gift and a curse. Being an Empath isn't an easy thing, and you can end up feeling a lot of pain... However, you can connect with people on a deeper level, save lives, and no one you care about can ever put on a mask to hide from you again. Hhearnan85 is right in that learning and developing is a personal thing, you'll grow in time, learn to expand your abilities, and seek new wisdom all the time. I can't tell you if you're an Empath or not, I can only tell you what being an Empath means, and you can then decide for yourself is those things are happening to you. My e-mail is on my profile page, if you wish to talk further, feel free to send me a message, I don't come on here much, only skim to find stories that peek my interest, or ones I feel that I can help people with.

Spiritual awakening is a very personal and gradual path, in order to find your own truth. I would give some general suggestions, some really simple things like meditating on a daily basis, eating right, doing excercise, strengthening your spiritual will. It would seem to me that you have a strong heart energy, and thus you are able to feel other people's emotions. One's abilities are a gift in order to help other people. One last thing all the information and guidance you could possibly need is inside you, also you might want to contact your spirit guides.
