Empath Or Psi Vampire?


I have been making some progress toward opening up and accepting that I really do have psychic powers. My Sensei (one of my friends that have taken it upon her self try and teach me) said that I have what she calls skeptic syndrome. I try to subconsciously rationalize the supernatural things that I am sensitive to, like that couldn't have been me, it's just my imagination. So I have been working on that.

As I was doing research on psychic stuff I've come across an ability of empathic senses. From what I've heard, empaths can tell when someone has entered the room and picks up on their emotions. I remember as a child I could tell when someone was sad and they were trying to hide it, and also when someone was particularly happy I would pick up on it.

Now on to my actual experience: The other night I was at a basket ball game and I was there mostly because the Pep band was playing. Earlier during school, a couple was most likely broken up but the whole situation had exploded by the time we were all playing at the game. The band was split in two by those who sided with the girl and those who sided with the guy. I had stayed out of it along with a few others and only knew that they were arguing. I started feeling really bad almost upset and my head felt like there was just out right chaos going on. I remembered my knowledge on Empaths and even though I felt really weird I was happy that I was back in touch with my ability. I told my psychic friends (who are also in band) and then cleared my head with an exercise I had learned from my research.

Later after the game, a friend brought up that I might be a psi vampire and that I feed off others energy and also their emotions and that's why I was feeling upset. I had previously tried to feel my sensei's energy flow her from her to me when I had my finger on her. She then asked what I was doing and said it hurt. I felt bad and tried to put it back but it hurt also. The other friend said I can't just take energy from people or give it back I have to do some thing with it. So I tried sending happy to her but I guess that didn't work and then they wouldn't let try any more. I tried to convince them to let me keep tying and said that I learn by doing and practicing but they still wouldn't let me.

Just as I was leaving and feeling rather depressed about both events when out of the corner of my eye I saw a glimpse of a blue aura on a tree. I stopped and looked at it but it was gone because I still can't see auras and energy very well but for that instant I had. I rushed to my car and threw my stuff in and ran back to the tree I touched it and felt a really good feeling of happiness and then had a flash/idea to go and hug the girl that had broken up with her boy friend. So I did and I think it helped, even though she stared laughing and they told me I was clueless about what they had been discussing before. I was kind of on a high because it didn't matter to me what had happened because I was happy and they were happy too.

I know this is long and drawn out but believe me I tried to leave out the non psychic stuff as best as I could. I want to know what you guys think: Am I an empath or psi vampire?

Ok some stuff I just don't believe. Like psi, I have to see it to believe it in person. Footage proof can be edited. Only paranormal photographic evidence I believe was ones I took or my freinds mom took on my williamsburg field trip. It was AMAZING 😲 I saw a face nose. Its was Lucy Ludwells ghost.

Hey yeah I'm getting back on this again (the website) I've been exploring sorta and I plan to write an update story to explain where I am now. I'm kind of over this story/phase as I call it now (the psi vamp, though I think was good to go through to correct my path)

psyvamp: enlighten me about the subconsious mind and what can and can't be done. I tried to read your profile before replying to you, but it's empty. If you "think", well than you don't sound very confident to me. And why are you replying to a post that is almost 6 months old? What do you "think" about me? Fortunately, I have a lot of stories and posts you can read to formulate your thoughts. I'll leave it at that. My appologies to everyone else if I seem confrontational. I'm just a but "sensitive". I await your reply.

An exercise in chakra opening, as emailed to you but lost!
Apologies, however

Picture the roots of a tree appearing from the base of your spine and growing downward into the earth below. Now at your genital area, picture a bright red poppy blooming into flower. At your stomach a sunflower opens widely, then, in your chest feel a beautiful huge pink rose flourish and become perfect. A cornflower tickles your throat as it erupts into life.
And there is an iris between your eyes, indigo in colour and almost searching with its delicate display of petals. At the top of your head a white lotus flower opens proudly.

To close them, do reverse!

Hi Lost eyes,
Yes you do need to have balanced chakas, an imbalance, as you say can be the root of a number of serious problems.

The ability of opening and closing your chakras upon request, when dealing with any type of spiritual work is invaluable. You open them right up to allow energies in... And subsequently shut them right back down again when you are through channeling, healing or whatever!

Experience will allow you to be able to feel if you are doing this correctly.

If your emal is on your profile I will send you a little info which might help!

I though that if a chakra is blocked it causes problems. I was told that they need to be balanced, not too open, not too closed. I'm a little confused by this.

Lost eyes, don't stress!
And don't try too hard!
Three hours meditation...sheesh! I'd call that a nap! Lol.

You want to work on your clairvoyance?
Clairvoyance is the ability of clear seeing!
The Lucid dreams you have are evidence that the brain waves you need for this ability are indeed active. However you need to learn to walk before you can run.

Spend some time seeing yourself. Believing in yourself and discovering who you really are. Find out how to deal with a situation before it presents itself, then you won't be startled when it does.

All this should be discovered before you go calling up spirits and it's a long process! I know that's not what you want to hear, I was the same, "I want to do it NOOOWWWW!"
I was still startled when I actually DID!
(read Trance figuration part 2!)

A word of advice for you as you embark on your journey, which has to be your own too, unfortunately;
Learn about your chakras and learn how to close them down very, very well!

I wish somebody had told me that!

But you know what my AP classes, Senior activities and college search just don't want to give me time. We just had a major snow storm here in Ohio, so I though that I could use this to work on it but nooo my mum (thanks Lyn I'm going to try to use Brit speak more often it's so cool) decides to give us chores. I'll find time though.

But the last time I meditated I think I had some time issues, I didn't go any where (I'm working on clearing my mind and visualizing) I was so into it I think I was up there, (the room upstairs where I like to meditate) for like 3 hours. It was light when I went up and them it was 6 and dark.

Besides that my bigest problem is visulizing and makeing it real. I some how have the natural abiliy to lucid dream. I never really think I've ever had a dream that thought was real. I was alway confused why in movies they always woke up thinking that it was real. I thought everyone dreamed like did. I don't know if that's why I can't slip into that part of my mind.

Yeah I get what your talking about. I think that all my frustration and confusion has been building and my empathic side was also taking a beating. It just all came out on the computer. I do plan on taking control of my life and my abilitites. I can still use help with exercises and stuff. Mabey next time I'll have a progress story to put up.

Now there is nothing wrong with sceptic syndrome as you call it, if used sparingly. I wouldn't become too obsessed with trying to rationalise everything which happens to you, as you'd be mad to even try, but that said, a little healthy second guessing here and there really helps to keep your feet on the ground.

I'm sure that we have all met someone who has become totally wrapped up in the world of the paranormal, be it online or in the real world. According to them, everything that happens to them is pre-destined. The slightest change in the weather is a message from whichever god they are worshipping that week. The raven had a deeper truth to impart when it decided to poo on their coat. In short, they have lost touch with reality, and that can only be dangerous.

But keep your level head, and just a little of your scepticism, and you should do all right.

Yeah your kind of right they do dress a little on the goth side. But they are not so much into the voodoo and quija. They are mostly just plain mediums. I know about the bad stuff with quija and what not and I stay FAR AWAY from it, just thinking about it gives me creeps. I have seen Reiki but anything I've found is really expensive or really vague. I just don't have the money. I've also looked at crystals but I don't know if it is worth it. What I want righ now is more towards clairvoyance so I can see the energy I am trying to work with. Then try to work on the other clairs. My "Sensei" hasn't been a real help, she's also a pyro and can't tell me about healing. I've been really scattered so I just need to take time to bring myself back together and focus on one goal. (takes deep breath) OK as I said I want to work on Clairvoyance/see energy I am working with so I know what I'm doing and not just throwing energy around. I'll take any help I can.

Hi Lost eyes,

Aaagh, I asked you last time how old you were, and I just came back off your other story after checking, and I can't remember! Doh! But I know that you are youngish, 18/19 right?

Well, and funnily I was mailing a friend of mine in tennessee about this same thing yesterday!

I think that the whole Psi vampire thing kicks in because of the circle you surround yourself in, I haven't been a teenager for a long time, and my children are still young, but I can imagine the scene you are mixing with, and don't take me the wrong way, your friends are all fab, but at this age and with such vulnerability it is easy to follow what may appear to be the most productive path and not the safest one, which takes a lot more work and understanding.

What I mean is, and I have posted this before, but just as an example here: For somebodys first encounter with an esoteric realm, it's real easy to bodge up an ouija board and manifest a groups energies into making the glass move. Now as Edmund and I insist on repeating, the results are immediate, frightning, fantastic and clearly evident. A good buzz for an evening huh?


In a similar vein, your friends who are "psychic" are probably into the goth scene, correct me if I'm wrong, and are thus wearing the appropriate clobber and impressed by the associated merchandise which are coincided with this folowing. These include toy voodo dolls, dragons, wizards, macabre dollies etc etc.

The "supernatural", "esoteric","paranormal" is a fascinating realm to discover and learn about and is vast, but don't be tempted to follow the sheep. Stand up and discover the correct route, away from all the associated dark symbolisms. Your energies are clearly concurrent with healing, as I have mentioned to you before, so why don't you lead the crowd instead of follow it. What exactly are the "vampires" going to achieve, other than draining each other, then replnishing each other again! Mindless! YAWN!

I TOLD YOU, TAKE YOUR BALL AND RUN. (oops, not shouting at you!) Have a look into Reiki healing, see if that rocks your boat, but don't do what " the masses " are doing simply because they are!
Peace to you my friend.
Linx 😉

I'm more scared of harming others, but I've never noticed them being tired around me/but who knows. I would like tips on how to heal others, I know that when I hear somone is sick or I see them sick/in pain I feel a need/want to help them. Even on movies and TV. That's why I really hate the St. Jude commercials because I wan to help but I can't really. 😭

Oh wow I'll have to take some time to really read into this. Thanks Tara. Some of my other resaerch sugests that most "Vamps" seem to be a fetish or dilusioned state of mind in my opinion. I guess if you can use energy that includes takeing it in and out. If anything the Symbiotic sounds more like what I would want to do, take away peoples' pain and sickness so they can heal. I guess I'll await other peoples' comments
