Am I Crazy? An Empath Needs Help


I know the title sounds weird but please let me explain.

But some weird things have been happening. It feels like I can feel other people's emotions or their thoughts or feelings on something. Like if someone is mad or sad I can usually tell pretty easily. For instance, I can tell when someone is mad at me. It's like I can just sense it. I can sense when someone doesn't like me or likes me.

Basically, I can feel someone feelings and emotions. I'm sorry if I'm not making much sense right now but I just really need some answers,

I have heard of something called Empathy. I'm wondering that maybe that is what is going on with me.

I also see things moving out of the corner of my eye, sometimes it looks like a person and other times something that is low to the ground. And I have this dream that showed me something.

I felt like I was being held down by a force and then someone a little girl came to me. She was murdered, I don't know how though. I tried repeatedly to move but I couldn't. I couldn't talk or anything. And this little girl for some reason showed me something about being under a bed. What does this mean?

I'm sorry if this doesn't make much sense or anything but please give me whatever advice you have? And if I am an empath how do I listen and control it?

Sorry to bring this post back but I need to clarify what is going on with me so I can see if this is what I have as well.
I may be an empath but I am very concerned on how it is happening I don't feel pain or get any direction from movies as the definition says but I can pull emotions from others at first they are basic but as soon as they talk I can read their intentions or thoughts. It is starting to become too hard to control I have buried it since I was young. But as I am older now it is hard to control. Has anyone learned or read on how to get rid of it?

Like everyone has said, being an Empath is difficult. Until I found out what it was, I didn't realize how much it affected my life and my relationships with people, friends, family, etc. Now that you've recognized that you are one, it should get easier. It did for me.

For example, I was in the mall yesterday. I didn't really understand what I was until about a week ago and I didn't realize how sensitive I really was until I went to the mall. I went in and it wasn't too bad until I went to the food court with my family to eat. There I got these overwhelming sens of emotions and I became very quiet and didn't say anything because I wasn't sure how I was supposed to feel. I mostly felt this powerful sense of love, pride and worry in the beginning. I soon looked around and discovered a woman sitting with her son, who was mentally handicapped and she was helping him eat some ice cream from dairy queen. I was trying hard not to stare, but when I looked at him I felt this intense feeling of love and dedication. I knew it was coming from the mother. I just felt it.
Once she left I was back to confusion with emotions, being suffocated by them. It took me about 15 minutes to realize the way I was acting, and why.

All I did was shake off the emotions. I took deep breaths, shook my body a bit, and imagined everyone's emotions falling off me. I began to feel lighter and calmer, less stressed out. Immediately when I got home I meditated.

Living with the gift of Empathy can be hard, we suffer when those around us do, we get physically ill sometimes too. But it is a gift! I promise. You can help so many people, and I have already begun to. And when you make them happy again, and satisfied, you will feel it.
After all, you are an Empath. [;

Good luck to you!

I think you are a empath 😁
I know how you feel; the confusing part. This has just started to happen to me too. Most of them are right; try meditating, I bet it will help!

Vendettababe #4 here, I'm also an Empath and I admit it is VERY difficult to deal with sometimes, ecspecially when you don't know if what your feeling is your own emotion, but don't worry you will come to deal with it and pick out your own feelings, in that case empathy can be a wonderful thing. ❤ -Lizzie [vendettababe #4]

Hello, I am back to comment in your story again. Last time I commented using my groups's name, VendettaBabes. This is my account. I re-read over my comment and saw how shallow and useless it had been, because I had only addressed the main good parts of empathy. So, here is the rest.

Empathy is something hard to live with. Sometimes, I come to hate it, and of course, this is nothing wrong or anything. It's natural. Empaths seem to become very claustrophobic when they are around material things and like nature. I know I do.:) Going outside when there is too much negativity in the house definitely helps. Sometimes however, you cannot leave the crowded negative place.: (

What I do then, and a very wonderful person in here taught me how to, is... I unblock. I close my eyes and cover my ears if its too loud. I imagine there is barriers all around me, and break them down, releasing all the negative energy. Of course, I still FEEL it, but this makes it a lot easier to live with. It helps the other Vendetta empaths and myself very much, and is a tactic that I would love to share with you and more.

-love and understanding, Val

I agree with Imagine_mystery, it seems so much easier to feel the negative tension. I was in a bus full of people once, there had been a serious accident (this was downtown) and traffic was at a halt for what seemed like ages. I could feel the tension build up. It got to a point where I felt like the tension was directed at me, or feeding on my energy perhaps, and was preventing me from breathing, it became really oppressive! At one point I just couldn't take it any longer and went to the bus driver and asked if I could be let out. At first he refused as he's not allowed to let out passengers on the streets, for security reasons. But once I asked so many people started shouting at him to let them off the bus that he eventually opened the doors... What a relief that was! On a 2nd occasion it was in a place downtown that had been set-up for the new Millenium. It was New Years' eve and people were just going crazy in there... It wasn't negativity I felt, but just an overload of ecstatic energy, yet that too became extremely overwhelming, to much vibes for my brain to handle, if my husband hadn't been there I think I would have gone into panic mode. I also have a hard time dealing with certain things I hear or see on the news... They get to me too much, they make me sick in the stomach because I can't block my mind so that I don't start feeling for those who suffer.
Once I was waiting at a bus stop, on my way to high school, and a truck passed by towing a yellow car which had not much left of its front... My heart sank, it felt as heavy as a stone and as if it had just dropped to my shoes, and I was immediately overwhelmed by sadness. I later found out the people in the car had died in the crash. There's been countless other 'episodes'...

So, maxie5, whatever you do don't start thinking you're crazy.

I understand, I can feel what others feel sometimes its so bad that I can feel sorrow for something that has happened on a TV show, not just normal sorrow but real pulling-at-the-heart pain. Its odd, espessialy when you start laughing at a joke before the person has even said the punch line... (very awkward!) Sorry if I'm not making sense! I tend to go on alot, sorry! 😆 😊

I think that you are empathetic. I know what you mean about knowing how people feel, or think, and it can feel even worse when it's directed towards you. I don't know if it's this way for you or not, but feeling tension in the room is one of the most horrible feelings for me. Especially if it's angry tension. It feels like someone is running cold water over my skin and poking me with needles at the same time. It seems like it is always easier to be sensetive to negative energy, which is why it can be so hard to be an empath. I understand how you feel though. Knowing people's thoughts or emotions can be anywhere from strange to annoying.

Empathy is a beautiful, useful gift. Come into the chatroom sometime, maybe I'll see you there. I'm online mostly at around 8:30 PM or so.

I, too see figures out of the corner of my eye. I know that sometimes eyes play tricks on people, and sometimes people think they are seeing things, but along with seeing these figures out of the corner of my eye, I feel a pressence, though it is rearely a negative pressence. I also have had dreams where I was not able to move or look away from thesubject of my dream. Once I had a dream that I was lying on my back, or tied up standing in an upright position and in front of me, encompassing the entire space of my dream until I could do nothign but think about it when I woke up, there was an angel with firey eyes and they were all that I could see. He was telling me good news, but I don't remember what it was. It was good news, and important, very important, like life changing, but I don't remember what it was. However, I feel like I SHOULDNT know yet... If that makes any sense. Later, I got the idea to draw a sketch of Gabriel. I was working on nativity costumes for a fifth grade music program and for Gabreil's costume I looked up references online. I got this sickening feeling almost in my chest, though, not in my stomach, and I felt like none of the pictures on the computer wwere doing the arcangel any justice. So I was compelled to draw a picture of him. When I finsihed it was the angel in my dream, and I was not able to develop the drawing past a certain point. I have also never been able to tell people about this... Only once to my aunt, but she understood. Weird thing when I was drawing the picture was that before hand I prayed that I could simply make a good drawing, I do this sometimes. While I was drawing, I felt like the drawing was a piece of crap because I couldn't finish it and I was almost mad at myself that I was not able to stop myhand from drawing, or that I was unable to stop, think about it, and change anything about the drawing. Even now, I can't do anything to alter it. Is this normal, or did I draw a vision I had?

When I get the feeling of someone holding me down I am never on my back. I'm on my side. And my mom said when she was pregnant with me, this would always happen to her.
But I think its weird that I'm always on my side and rarely on my back...

I read recently, in a book titled "Psychic Self Defense" that ectoplasm could be the "weight" some people feel on their chests when they are paralyzed from sleep and "see things"

Maxie, most people have intuition and psychic ability but not all use it or develop it. Apparently you are developing yours. Use it to help others. Since you sense others feelings why not offer them comfort or reassurance? Ask them if they are feeling sad, angry, worried, ill, etc, then offer them help.

Hi Maxie5,

We go through similar things. I think we are a lot alike.
This is a recent post well actually its from last year I wrote it under my old screen name Strangeluck.

My mom always told me I was born with a veil over my face. I really didn't know what that meant. But for some reason I always felt special through out my whole life. Right now I am 36 years old and I am trying to understand what is this thing I am able to do.

Not to long ago my wife and I moved into to an one bedroom apartment, in a really old building. About a month after we moved in I would go to bed and wake up in the middle of the night with what felt like something heavy on my chest. Like something holding me down, would not let me move.

I could see and breathe but could not move, I tried to yell out but could not move my mouth! My wife was sound asleep and was oblivious to what was happening to me. I would struggle and fight what ever was holding down. Then there would be this strange vibration like buzzing feeling. I felt it all over my body.

It would happen every other night. I got really tired of what ever was doing this to me. So I waited for it to happen again! This time I was ready, I was really-pissed-off!

Then it happen again. Like before it held me down like if someone was sitting on my chest. Then the vibration feeling fell all over my body. With every ounce of strength I had I moved my arm and pointed to the ceiling and I said "Who ever you are I am stronger than you! Leave-me the-hell-alone!" The weight that was on my chest disappeared like if it was never there. Since that night it never bothered me again! I think it's because I started working out at the Gym!

But even before that happen I would walk into places I have never been before. And suddenly get chills (goosebumps) and stuff. I feel something is with me but I don't know how to communicate with it. So I just talk to what ever's there like I talk to anybody in the street!

"Hey what do you want, can I help you!?"

Am I some type of Medium? Can somebody tell me?

One thing I learned from the internet: I am clairsentient. I can feel the vibration of other people. Thoughts and emotions of other people. But I mean... So many Strange things have happen to me through out my life to a degree. Too much to write here... But I will write it later.

I took the Zener Cards test, sometimes I'm really good at predicting what card is next. Then other times when I do the test I fail terribly.

Then the weird thing is I can only seem to predict what happens like seconds before it happens, or seconds before a person speaks. I know what they're going to say before they say it! I know what they are going to do before they do it. But put me in front of a card game I am a real loser! I don't know... What is this called?
