Empathy Or More?


I honestly don't know what to think, but this is my last call. I am so tired of feeling something other people don't feel. It leads to a quite a lot of misunderstanding between me and my family, my friends.

The thing is that every time I go out of the house, I don't know how to protect myself from the energies I feel. For example, I live in an old city, and I study on one of the oldest streets in the city. And I FEEL this place. Actually, old places are the hardest for me. And new, modern places give me a lot of power.

I'm getting my masters at a very old building, and before that I had studied there for 4 years for my bachelors degree. I FEEL this place. I don't know how to explain it. It kind of sucks all the energy out of me, and I can't pay attention to classes, friends, anything else.

Then I come home, and I can't talk to anyone, because I'm energetically exhausted. Thank God I live alone now, but when I lived with my parents it was horrific. They are the best parents I know, but I just couldn't explain what I feel to them.

You would think that it's probably a bad period in my life and I need a rest. Well, I have had some stressful moments, truth be told. But the same thing I felt when I was a kid. I remember I couldn't get rid of an energy of a place for two days, and it was driving me insane, and I couldn't explain why I was feeling so bad. The only thing that saved me that day was my friend... She distracted me, and I finally felt better again.

Do I have other psychic abilities? Yes, I do. They are not very strong, but very stable. But I don't want to talk about them now, because the main problem is that I don't know what it is and how to live with that in such a big city I live in. Any similar experiences?

Hi! Not sure if it's too late to comment but I've recently come to terms with my abilities as an empath and right now my control is just complete crap haha. Being around people really exhausts me and I understand when you say a building can really suck the life out of you. My old college had an art gallery and it felt like millions of bodies had been through the hallways of the underground hallways and large rooms. It felt almost suffocating even tho the ceiling was 20 feet high and enough space to hang amazing art pieces and prop statues. But... I couldn't even enjoy the art myself and felt a huge relief when I left those places. I'm not really sure how to control it either but I think the trick is to filter through it. You can't just block out your ability all the time... I think acceptance is part of the key.

Dear Saleire,

Thank you so much for your comment! Wow, that is good information, too. I didn't think that buildings actually "build up" energies, and these energies become very strong. And yes, I didn't want something like just protection, because I want to interact with the world, too. So this is a good recommendation.

Best regards,

I find that putting a light around me as I go out helps a lot. You are protecting yourself from the negative energies around you that are sucking your positive energy from you. You are an empath, feeling all the pains and suffering of everyone around you, and also from buildings and the stressful energies that have built up in there. So put a circle of light around you and when you are out, focus on what you are doing and not anyone else. Really focus, have a conversation in your head about what you doing for the day, and really get caught up in your energy of the day... This stops you from connecting with other people's energy if you don't want to. Say things like, the energy around me is golden and all who come into contact with it will smile and feel love... And carry on knowing that you are not only protected, but sending out good vibes too.

Hey elena44


I'm glad you've found something that works for you. Crossing the arms makes sense, it kind of rejects the energy around you, I'll keep that one in mind:-)
I guess it blocks everything, the bad and the good energies. With time you'll train yourself so that the technique you use puts up the shield automatically when you get to sense bad energies, while you'll let the good ones in.
Wish you a safe journey.

Kind regards,

Thanks a lot! Yes, the comments to the post you mentioned were very informative! I will try something of that. My most recent experience has shown that crossing your arms and standing away from a crowd of people helps, too (if it is in a train or metro, or somewhere else). I was also thinking of getting an amulet (I know a person who can make one and whom I definitely trust), since I do now believe in the power of magic...

Hi elena44

I'll jump in here. There are different methods used for empath protection, it comes down to which you feel comfortable with. If one method works for 1 person, doesn't mean it will work (at least not in the same way) for the other person. You can also come up with something on your own. There are lots of methods mentioned and described on the internet and you can also find them under personal empath experiences. One of the methods which is usually used is visualizing the protective shield, for example. You can find some advises on that topic in the comments here under the story title: "Bright Lights (auras)? And Empathy? Help".
Btw, I understand your scepticism, I too question & explore things that I'm presented with. But, to know something, give it a try... Then you'll see how it feels for you.

Kind regards,

Thank you Lyro:) I just found this website to be of a good quality, and it seemed that comments here would help me... I do understand that I need a protection, but what exactly do I do? I have no idea 😨 probably because I've been quite quite sceptical for a long time in my life...

First off, wow first person I've seen from Russia commenting here. Second I don't think it's necessarily the place, but more likely the people. I could be wrong, but I've never really felt stronger or weaker due to the buildings, but I've felt exhausted from the people in them. I have felt... Clean? When I moved into a new place before, however I believe that was the feeling of getting away from spirits and such from the old home and coming into a place that had nothing there. As time went on in didn't stay that way, but again it wasn't the building, this was feeling spirits inside it or the lack of. The best advice is to try and look up ways to shield yourself from making random connections with people around you. This should help you not feel so drained.
