Extreme Empathy - Help Me Understand


I, by no means, want to make this seems as if I'm special. I'm just trying to understand these events surrounding my life and these feelings that take over me.

I have an unbelievable sense of empathy that allows me to almost read someone's mind. I know exactly where the conversation is headed, exactly what their emotional state is at the moment, and exactly what they want to hear. Immediately upon meeting someone I am able to immediately "feel" what type of person they are and what they will respond to. I know exactly how they feel about what I'm saying and I stun a lot of people when I can predict a whole conversation by letting the person know who I am talking to what their series of questions would be. I even think to myself this is not anything special... Maybe just analyzing...

But, I can like literally feel people. Its really hard to explain. I can feel who they are... Their spirit... Their personality, their character. It even stunned me one year for instance I was over a good friend of mines house. I was there for a graduation party for his sister. His sister was flipping through her yearbook and for kicks I started looking at pictures and saying what type of personality they have. I even went as far as to say certain things they probably did. I was right every single time. I did at least 12 people. I honestly got scared and stopped. Its so hard to put into words. Every girlfriend I have said when I touch them they feel something weird they can't explain. I myself can feel their energy... Its almost hypnotizing as I can calm them almost to the point they fall asleep. This has been true with every girl I have come into contact with. I haven't tried this out with men simply because there aren't too many instances in which I touch men besides a handshake. I just don't know what to make of it.

These feelings are getting stronger and stronger as I get older... I'm mid 20's which is the part that scares me. I have other random things that I think are odd. I never remember my dreams until they happen in real life. A real life even triggers the dream and I remember the whole thing. I can think of one dream that wasn't triggered by some real life event. To clarify: the real life event that triggers the dream is part of the dream. I can usually tell when someone is going to come by before they get to the door. Same thing goes for phone calls... I will pick up my phone right when it's ringing. It's sad to say but I find it easy to manipulate people based off me knowing what's going through their mind, what they are thinking, and what they are feeling... Using that information I know what response they want

I just don't know what to make of all of this... I think I'm going crazy... I don't know how to deal with something I don't understand. If you follow astrology I'm a number 33 which are known for strong empathy.

heys I know how this feels. It seems to run in my family. Its been getting worse since I was very young. Only 16 now and had it with hormones for 4years I struggle with no way to escape it. My mum has it and she says shes only learned how to in the past 10years. But she won't tell me how to control it. Says everyone has to find their own way to. Sorry. Must be true.x

I have a "Sister" with the same ability, I'm also and empath but not nearly as strong as you or she is. Although I don't have to deal with it I know how annoyed she gets with it so you have my deepest sympathy. ❤-Lizzie Vendetta babe #4

I am, alike you, also "suffering" from being able to hear voices and sounds no one else can. This is called claurisentience. It's one of my most hated abilities, because it is annoying at times and distracting. I do know what they are saying most of the time, and they do not seem evil, but sometimes... I don't. And most of those times, the energy feels negative. I also have other abilities, among that, I am a dream interpreter. I am extremely connected to my sister Brittney. [not really my sister, but we're in the same "psychic family"] I can touch her hand lightly, and know what she is thinking about through pictures. In what we dream we also seem to be connected. While I am not afraid of most of the things I can do, I try to take what I see, feel and hear, seriously. You never know when it might help you.

Deja Vu can often be misinterpreted.

1.Sometimes it is actually psychic ability.

2.Other times it might be recognition of something, someplace, or someone from a past life.

3.It can also be due to the brain's memory mistaking a current occurance for something it has already seen. (For example dyslexia is when the brain thinks faster than the body, mouth, or hand.) In Deja Vu the brain sees something but confuses time and mistakenly thinks it is seeing it for a second time when in fact it has not.

I actually attract people of the psychic nature. Oddly enough I was having trouble lately and found a job where I met a shaman of sorts. He told me everything I had on my mind, all my worries and such and reassured me. I'm sure if you look in the right places, you will find them. Try a retreat, or a psychic develapment course

Has anyone had the experience of meeting another Empath? What was the meeting like?

Being an Empath is something I've kept to myself. The few people I've told have either laughed or thought I was crazy.

I can hear what people thinks, it's like if they were whispering in my ear but they are not, they can be two streets away it doesn't change a thing. How can you people control it? I feel like my head is going to explose... 😭

often I have noticed I will space out and be able to hear the conversations or fights word for word I will have that night and in the near future the conversations are sometimes not that uncommon but seem to happen anyway when I hear them. For some reason this happens more if I'm exercising or in motion.

Isaid...I hear separate voices, but not in conversations. They yell in 4 or 5 words sentences, startling me because its unexpected, but they do not scare me.

Lately its been "radio silence".

Hi guys, thanks for all the tips! I will try and channel these energies... I also forgot to mention sometimes I hear voices but I can never make out what they are saying. I am not nervous or scared about this as they do not appear threatning. Anyone else experience this?

the big issue with these "gifts" is they can and will backfire on you. Sure it's fun at first to be able to read a person inside out and know exactly which buttons to push and get your way but it becomes isolating.

Maxtar, have you tried grounding tecniques? I have found that when I am extremely overwhemled with multiple emotions and feel like a manic depressive spazz, I sit down on the floor and let it all out. Just feel everything come out of you and enter the ground and exit you. I was very doubtful at first because most of the things I have read don't work for me either. But you can't fight the emotions you gotta let em surface. For me, tears fall out effortlessly and then I feel ten times lighter. For people you don't know, the emotions usually go with them but with people you are close to, cut the cords.

I can relate to all of that. I'm not as sensetive to other's as you are, but I know what you mean about knowing someone. It usualy takes me under five minutes to 'read' them I guess. I can tell what their motives are, and I know what their about. I guess you could put it that way anyways. I always thought I was just very good at analyzing people too. But it is kind of useful. It's very easy to tell what people you want to be around, as in who is going to make a good friend, or is a unique person, or who will only lead you down the wrong path, or won't be there for you. So I find skills of empathy very useful. So I hope that your skills are useful, too, and you can use them to help you. It's a very good thing to have faith in what your instincts tell you, but being sensetive, I think, is even better. I always feel like I know the truth, and like my empathy helps my judgement. I hope you can feel the same way, and be unaffraid of the things you can do. 😊

Its hard, isn't it, to explain how one can... Feel someone? It's a whole different language. And the telling how and what type of person someone is, is called soul-reading. You're not alone. Hope to hear from you.

Your empath abilities sound really cool. It must be a tad weird sometimes though. And its natural to be tempted, eventually you have to try and block out the feeling.

Oracle. Can you tell me why I get deja vu almost every other day? I even get jamais vu a lot... It scares me... I read from wikipedia that deja vu could be caused by some disorders. But I've checked... I have got none... And what is it with my jamais vu?

To remember your dreams:

-Keep a journal and pen by your bed. (For people who do not sleep alone: also use a penlight or small flashlight, so if you awaken at late hours you do not wake the other person.)

-Before going to sleep tell yourself you will remember your dreams clearly upon waking.

-Ask to have each person in your dream tell you their first and last name and to repeat it twice.

-Ask to be shown addresses and dates in your dreams.

-Pray to your Guides (or God) to help you with this.

Then go to sleep.

As soon as you wake, write it all down in detail.

To help remember your dreams:

1.Repeat to yourself just before you go to sleep, "I will remember my dreams when I wake." Say this two or three times.

2.Also pray to God or your Guides before you sleep and ask for help remembering your next dreams.

3.As soon as you wake, write every detail down in a journal.

4.As soon as you wake think about what you dreamed and go over every detail in your mind. This takes the dream and implants it into your brain's memory cells so that throughout the day you will continue to remember it all. Otherwise we naturally forget out dreams and disregard them to prepare our brain for the next ones. (Our brain knows that we intend on dreaming many more and it does not want to have to worry about storing them all!)

5.Buy a deck of dream cards. They are picture cards on most things we dream about so that by looking at the cards it triggers our memory (ie: plane, water, car, tree, cat, building, flower, boat, etc). I have a set and they really do work.

When I have a futuristic dream, or any dream for that matter, upon waking I first weed/filter out anything I was thinking of before sleeping, any movies I watched recently, any books, news, or articles I read that day, etc (*). Then I carefully analyze what is left. I write down every small detail that I can remember about the dream that stood out or was shown to me. Next I research the news for anything which might relate closely to my dream to solve what it was about and what the message is (why it was sent to me, what I am supposed to do to prevent it or to help those involved). This is how I have solved most of my dreams. On average I dream 3 to 5 per night and by researching them I solve at least one third of my dreams; some within one day while others might not happen for several weeks.

(*Although, on occasion there are some dreams that are sent to me because I had recently seen something which the spirit/ghost knows relates to them so they will send me that relating dream.)

If you have a special ability, use it to help yourself and others. Giving it a purpose helps you to fit in and feel accepted. Otherwise it remains an oddity that can make you and others feel uncomfortable. So turn it into something useful and good.

I will add a new post to answer your question about remembering your dreams.

Hi Isaid... Welcome to the club. If you're crazy then everyone on this board is crazy. Clearly empathy & telepathy seem to be your strongest gifts. Claircognizance is not a bad thing to have either.

The thing with touching folks sounds like it MIGHT be a form of psychokinesis (manipulating energy or matter). If you can feel the energy of a person, you MIGHT be able to train yourself (or be trained) to do energy healing.

Manipulating people for personal gain may be tempting, but remember there is always karma. "Do unto others...".

Welcome to the board. 😊

I am similar but my abilities are slightly different. I can sometimes hear future thoughts or something people are going to say and others I can forsee stuff... My empathy has been scattered lately and I can't focus it... Does anyone know how to tune others out for a bit... I have read other articles and some of them say to visualize a door which that doesn't work for me... Any help would be appreciated.
