Real Psychic Experiences



I'm reaching out. I have always had experiences but never put anything together and never developed anything further. I've heard things, seen things, had shared dreams, and experienced empathy. As I get older, I'm starting to gain knowledge about myself and understand why I've always been so overwhelmed by emotions.

I'm easily affected by other people's emotions. When I'm in a yelling argument, I can't even get any words out because I'm so overwhelmed by the emotion in the room and all I can do is cry. Crying seems to be my means of releasing the emotions of others. I would just think I'm sensitive but its like I can see into them and I don't feel like its my feelings making me cry.

I feel like most people I know as soon as I meet them and I can always feel the mood of a room as soon as I walk into it. For a while, I thought I was developing an introverted behavior even though I never use to be that way. Now, I'm thinking the feelings of others are affecting me so much, I cannot deal with group situations.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to tune out other people's emotions, especially when in a room full of people? I read something about yarrow flower essence helping. But are their exercises?

I don't know exactly how to totally shut them out, because they don't overwhelm me like they used to, but it started in eighth grade, we had a commons that the whole school would gather there before going into our classes. It used to be so overwhelming I would vomit in the bathroom, hide in the stalls from my friends crying. Eventually it go to the point where I really didn't want to go to school, but I was forced to go anyways, but then I felt a depression, like a large hole in someone's chest and I focused on it for a while because though it felt dreadful it seemed to swallow all those other emotions. It took me a while to remember that emotion and use it as my own, but in these last few years I have it mastered to the point where if a friend slaps my boyfriend, I will shake, I will almost cry, I will almost tear her hair out or any other emotion that is pressed against my gut and chest, but I will look emotionless and I can control the over whelming feeling so it dose not master me but I master it. Find a feeling to make your own to drown out the others is my advice, but make sure it is strong, practice.

I've been an empath for as long as I can remember, and I can't really imagine not being able to feel everyone else around me. That said, it does get overwhelming at times, and there are ways you can deal with the stress which such a burst of either positive or negative emotion generates.

Mantras are good, humming or singing softly to yourself, preferable under your breath while vibrating your diaphragm also works well. The basic idea behind doing that is to turn your thoughts and vision inward and concentrate on your own emotional state, so that the stray thoughts and feelings of others cannot gain a hold over you. Hearing your voice vibrating in your chest helps shut everyone else out audibly as well, which is also good.

Once you have a little more experience with controlling your emotional state in the presence of others you might try earthing the bad energy instead. This is a little harder to explain, but you absorb the 'bad vibes', feel the negative emotion, and instead of breaking down and allowing it to gain a hold over you, you accept it and overcome it as you would if it was your own negativity.

An alternative to this, and the system which I personally adhere to, involves storing the negative emotions you experience on a day to day basis up somewhere deep inside yourself, and releasing them healthily at regular intervals through an energetic and cathartic action, dance or martial arts, for example.

Hope that helps everyone.

i know exactly how you feel! Because aside from having psychic dreams, I also am able to feel other peoples' emotions when they are around me. I hate it because when someone around me is feeling angry or depressed, I sense it and I start feeling angry or depressed. On the other hand, it's good when those other people are feeling happy! Lol. But I just wanted to let you know that I can relate to your story very much.
