Exhausted Psychic, Can Anyone Help Me?


I am a 40 year old mother of eight I am an empath, I think. Or else I'm loosing my mind. I can most times feel what others are feeling, some times good feeling but mostly their anxiety, sadness, fear and generally negative feelings. I also can tell if someone is lying to me, I can feel the lie too in my stomach. My main problem is I seem to absorb this energy and I carry it with me, bringing me down and suffocating me. Especially if it's someone close to me. I hate conflict and can feel their feelings as well as my own.

I had a psychic experience in 1996, and think it could be connected to that. Two of my friends committed suicide within two weeks of each other. I knew before each of their deaths that they were going to commit suicide. I tried to tell my partner and others what was going to happen, but no one believed me. Our first friend died and my partner was shocked but put it down to coincidence. He nick named me witchy poo.

Then I got that feeling in my stomach again. I could not explain how I knew another friend was going to die, I just knew. I felt it in my tummy and I knew what would happen. Again my partner did not believe me. This feeling would not leave me alone. So I called my friend's mother and we found my friend's body in her house. It was at this point I started to question why did this happen to me? Is it my fault? Was I given this information to save their lives and did not succeed?

After this I felt so guilty that I think I attracted negative feelings and now do not know how to protect myself or stop absorbing this energy. I'm exhausted, can anyone help me?

jesusfreak, I really appericate your opinion. But I also have jesus in my heart and talk to him everyday, I give him my life everyday and thank him for the good and the bad in my life always. As the good things are great also the problems have a good side to them too as they teach us lessons and also make us stronger as people. I am a christian all my life and would never turn my back on GOD as through all my pain and trials he has never left my side he is my best friend. I know I could be dead tommrow but I'm not afraid to die as Jesus will be waiting for me when my time comes. The Lord is what makes this life liveable if he didn't exist I would not want to either, I trust in Jesus and his word. By the way it's so good to hear from another who loves Jesus as I do. Maybe he does not want me to understand my psychic gifts yet, only time will tell. 😕

every thing happens for a reason, and in your case what I hear is that God is telling you a head of time that this is going to happen. But you ignore it. Then when it happens you are supprised, and every one around you is too. So your #1 ignoreing God. Secondly through this mistake of unbelief God is trying to make some good come out of it by showing you how frail you life is because one day your here and the next your gone. So #2 is you are not accepting that you could die right now or tomorrow and that you need to get right with him before that day comes, because if you don't it will be to late.
Then you blame your self, which is not God's intentions for you because he tried to tell you a head of time so that you wouldn't blame your self to begin with.
So don't feel bad, they made there choices and they chose death over life.

Also another mistake is dwelling on this, it's the past so get over it. I'm sure they were great and amazing people but the fact is that they are dead and they aren't comeing back just because you blame your self for it. 😢

Also, if you want temporary relief from these negative emotions then sure a meditation, or bath may work (i'm sure it'll make you smell better) lol, just kidding! Just kidding!

But if you truely want to be free from this emotional baggadge then give it to God! Because he loves you and through it all is trying to show you that he still loves you and care's about you.

You have a great testamony and should share it with others, about how God is working through your life even when you may not be a christian 😊

All you need to do is give your troubles to God (Jesus Christ) and let him remove them from your life and bring you love, contentment, joy, peace, and peace of mind knowing that through his sacrifice you can go to heaven for free.

All you have to do is accept him as lord and savior and accept his death and bloody scarifice. Because he died for you and me, and that is enough!

But I am only stateing my oppinion on your life story and how I view it. So please don't take offence to what I said if you don't want to hear my opinion. Every one can believe what ever they want and do what ever they want. But sadly your friends died for a reason and this is it so please don't let there deaths be for nothing... 😊

God Bless you and your 8 children in what ever choice you make.

I also know that I do this. I used to think it was me and hormones or something that would suddenly make me feel bad. I have learned through meditation that you can release these feelings. You have to find where the feeling is in your body, then visualize/feel the emotion being pulled down out of your body into the earth. It really helps. Good luck!

Well, I know I'm only 15, but I'm an empath and not one of the wanna-be's ha. So, I learned to control mine simply by practicing. Honestly, I always got in trouble because I'd pick up a negative emotion from someone and I'd snap at my parents when really I didn't need to.

It's hard to control, and it may be harder for you. Due to stress of raising a large family, work, etc. Don't let this guilt pile up on you. It was probably impossible for you to get someone to believe you. My mom believes in psychics and she always watches the psychic shows, and she's gone to one before... Yet, if I tell her that I have these abilities, she doesn't believe me.

So, back to this, try to take a few minutes a day aside to meditate. It may be hard, but you will have to clear your mind. It's hard for me to do because, well, I'm in highschool. But, clearing your mind and just breathing deeply and meditating will help you. Also, just practice. Try to focus on a person, and pick up all their emotions and how much there is of each one. I did this, and now I pretty much control when my empathy kicks in.

I hope I helped some. Good luck.

a psychic shield is required equipment for psychics and empaths. I visualize by body covered in a mirror pyramid with the mirrors facing away from my body to return any negative energy that might come my way. I only use a shield in the physical world as I have no need of protection in the spirit world- I am one of the protectors of the spirit world.

Using incense or smudging helps as does fragrance oils and crystal therapy- black tourmaline is my favorite cleansing stone. Even just getting out into fresh air will help if you envision the wind carrying away the negativity that is attached to you. Water works too and drinking herbal teas too.

I wouldn't take on any guilt for not saying anything about the potential suicides- you weren't motivated to do so (perhaps in the future you will be now this has happened) and there are no coincidences. Everything happens for a reason.

Love and Light

You seem to need help with shielding from your empathy. This wonderful gift can be exhausting over time, especially since many times the emotions you feel are more negative/pushy than positive. Please contact us for more information on this, and don't be scared.:)

I will try the shower, thank you for your help. Sometimes I can cope with the enegry, other times it is so strong it's unbearable. I mostly find it hard to distunguish between my own feelings and the feelings of others, leading me to depression, cofusion and isolation. I have started doing gardening this year and a few days days ago took up meditation again. At last I can see I'm not mad and most important not alone. 😁

Wow loulou, I felt like I was reading my own thoughts. I'm just realizing that I'm an empath as well. I honestly didn't know what was going on. I've been absorbing everyones sadness and anger for years. I had to stop watching the news a few years ago. I didn't understand why it seemed to be taking me over until I'm depressed or have severe headaches. I don't know how to control this. Lately I've had severe headaches everyday with extremely tense muscles. I've even seen my Dr. About it. I want to separate myself from this and feel normal. I don't garden or anything like that. But I will attempt the shower method! It's worth a try... 😊

Yes, I too have experienced the absorbing of to much energy. What I've noticed is that some people's energy seeps in stronger than others. If I forget to surround myself in a bubble of white light, I become like a magnet drawing all kinds of feelings inside me.
Here's my suggestion if your at home, take a shower and say this while the water is pouring over you > I release all negative energy within me I am calm < keep saying this until you feel balanced again > If your out and about you can use this simple method at a sink basin just allow the water to run over your hands saying the same affirmation. Meditation > works by balancing all your chakras. I'm deeply sorry for the loss of your friends but you have to realize that it's not your fault for not acting on your feelings right away. To ease your pain pray for them, they can hear you. Another way of removing too many feelings is to do a little gardening work, make sure you dig your hands into the soil. If you have no garden repot plants this works also. Take up a hobby that is relaxing for you to do, you will be amazed by how much strength and energy you will gather by doing something that is creative.
Take care, my email is posted if you need a friend
Peace to you
