Help With Empathic Abilities


I have always had the ability of sensing the emotions of others and always had this feeling of knowing or understanding.

Lately I, to help with this and the strong emotions like fear and anger that get easily transmitted and mixed with my emotions, have started meditation. This has really been a lot of help when I'm trying to talk to someone about their problems or give advice (people have this tendency to want to talk to me about their problems or enjoy and relax around me) or when I get into arguments with my parents. All I have been able to do is just that. I am now wondering how I can further control these abilities and read them better than having a sudden feeling or thought pop into my head. Like how do I come by actually shutting them down or putting up mental barriers so I just feel me and not the others around me?

I have trouble now. I believe from the meditation and the opening more of my chakras and sensing energy that I have been getting these headaches that feel like an immense pressure in my head. Also, I have the inclination to sleep during the day when most people are awake around me and stay awake at night when everyone is asleep. It's like a huge pressure be lifted out of my head.

I'm just wondering if there are any others with this same type of problem who may have some solutions or advice in this area please help.

I believe I am an empath, and have been told by people who claim to have psychic abilities that I am an empath and also an "old soul". I am looking to learn ways of using this gift and how to make it stronger. At this point, all I know is that I often feel emotions that are not my own, and have had many instances where I've been overcome by panic/anxiety/intense sadness only to later learn that these emotions engulfed me at the approximate time someone either close to me or close to my children either died or experienced some major loss.

There must be some reason I have the ability to feel these things, but I don't know how to put my ability to any practical use.

Another, perhaps associated, thing I've noticed while working in a vet's office - I seem to be able to connect pretty well with animals. Many times when someone would bring their pet in for an exam, I had a sense of "oh, that dog has cancer", or "that cat has something wrong with its kidneys" and most often, it would come to pass that I was right. Of course, having no in-depth veterinary training, I never brought this up to the vet or any coworkers...they'd have thought I was nuts.

I'm still stuck at the point where I don't really trust my own instincts, and frequently wonder if maybe I'm just being silly, or maybe I'm a bit off... I don't know. How does someone strengthen their abilities and what use is there for them? How can I use them to help?

Thanks, and... By the way, I'm new here. First post. Hi (waves)...

I wanted to let you know you're not the only one struggling with this. I've been dealing with this 'ability' since puberty, right at eleven years old for me. At first it was only touch, but soon it began to escalate. I'm seventeen now, and I can't even go into public without severe migraine's from what other people are feeling.

I'm sorry I have no advice to give to you, for I'm still half lost myself. But, you're definitely not alone, and here's to hoping for a better future. After all, I only feel emotions thank gosh, but if the past was so grim don't we deserve something better?

I'm a empath and I have learned to shield myself somewhat in some areas, but girls and authority figures and really insecure people seem to make me squirm. Mostly in part I use to be kind of anti social and when I was younger and can identify with those emotions, even thought I have gotten over them in the most part.
I was good with girls but then I think my empathy got more intense after I had a bunch of terrible night terrors when from the age of 10 to 14 when I had fevers. Girls have a lot of mood swings and a lot of girls are insecure about themselves and when they are feeling this I can exactly match how they are feeling and I can't come out of it, when their happy I feel very confident and like I have skill in talking with them but when they start feeling those negative feeling everything goes downhill, I really need some advice please.

I think you could be telepathic. The headache could be stress from negative emotions overwhelming you, in that case empathy, but you could be telepathic.

Biological explanations aside which you should not rule out just yet...

What you are experiencing could very well be an imbalance in your own energies. I neither agree or disagree with the concept of chakras. But from what I have read illness and disease are thought to be physical manifestations of an energy or non-physical imbalance. It is speculated that cleansing the chakras is the recommended course of action.

I came to this site to take a psychic abilities test. Then I proceeded to write my story. Of all the things I talked about the thing that is troubleing me the most is feeling everything the people around me feel. After reading just a few stories and comments I recognize more about my life than I ever did before. I live in a small home with my sons and daughter in law as well as my grandson. I am so unhappy because I am overwelmed with it all. I am always trying to help them through what they are feeling and it makes them angry. I guess its mostly because they have no privacy from me. At least not emotionally. So I try not to say anything, but then they are asking me what's wrong. My son is in Iraq and its his wife that is living with me and we can't get along because I know when she is lieing to me and when she is being fake with me. I can't really expain it all in just a comment. I feel like I am being pushed out of myself. I have always been around boys, I have no sisters or daughters and this is the first girl to live with me and she is the hardest to deal with. How do I block them out?

I think I'm an empath. I'm about 95% positive I am. But I'm a weak one. I can only pick up on peoples emotions who are close to me (physicly or my really good freinds) can I get some answers? Even in school (where I'm usually quit and talk mostly either when spoken to or just to my freinds and I'm still considered wierd. Once me and my freind where building this rollercoaster thing and he was getting frusturated with the chain to lift the rollercoaster cars, I brushed up and I went from a kind of blank consentrating state to frustrated the chain was messing up. I also understand animals, not like talking to them, but if I have skin on skin contact, their perfectly calm.

I get what you are saying about knowing why they did it. When I approch someone, or they approch me, after wronging me in some way, unless its really bad, or I know that they arelieing or doing something to make it worse, I forgive them. To say that indicates to me that you have a pretty pure aura.

Have you ever done research on Ingigo children, or the crystalines? They say that people with these special gifts are being put on earth, to help human andvancement. To put war and unfriendliness, and all the bad things behind us and that we well show humans a better way of living through forgivness, kindness, and love. There was an artical I had read on how we "asend" when we develope our abilities the first step is recognition, and the last step is finding our true path in life.

I can completly relate to you in what you are saying. If you need any more info or insight, my email is in my profile!:)

I know exactly what you mean I'm actually in college been out of high school for a year. Girls were the worst its was like all those mood swings they they talk about you having were like ten fold for me. So I would Zone out and ignore everything and everyone around me. I loved the library Because no one was ever there and I was always alone with one or two friends.

I'm not so good with the projecting my emotions as I am with sensing the emotions of others. Also do you ever think about someone and their actions and know exactly why they did something? Like for example someone did a wrong against you and you never really got angry at that person because as you sit there and think about it the answer comes to you. You see the whole picture and you understand their actions and without even saying it to yourself you have already forgiven them. Like you understand the fact that we are all human and the factors that make us human and different from animals so to speak and that emotions like fear and love influence our decisions. By understanding that, the person that wronged you makes total sense to you in your head and you could predict what they would do in any situation? 😕

Thanks for the advice about being the observer I have been trying it a lot lately and its been difficult at first but getting easier. Its like there my own thoughts and emotions plus those of others, like a big hole and everything is thrown in and you are the lucky winner that gets to sort through everything. I've also found that I should react on my first initial perception and try and concentrate on that.
Also I have been trying to connect with others in my community that share similar gifts as well and its the oddest thing. Every time it seems like I find a legit person or some place that may be able to help there is no one there or they moved or something to that extent. How did you find others like us?

I have been also experiencing headaches ever since I started my meditations. I wasn't to sure how to block everyone's emotions and body aches. I have many experiences but the one that was really amazing but painful was when Michael Jackson died or should I say before.

One week before he died, I was waking up in the early mornings and it would be the same time at 3:15am. Then one day I experienced a headache and what felt like sorrow so heavy that I couldn't concentrate for the entire morning. Being an empath and being able to sense energy vibrations, will enable you to sense an event coming. My awareness is expanding and I was able to sense everyone's pain of his death.

I started taking intuitive classes. I'm finding that being around others who are like me is very helpful. I'm learning a lot and it is so much fun. The energy in the room when in class is amazing. The classes I'm taking focuses on developing and understanding what all of us are born with but have not used it because of how society views these abilities. The instructors explained that when expanding your awareness through meditation, you become more intuned with energy vibrations of everyone and everything around you. The headaches that I have been experiencing are those vibrations and being new to these my brain is overloading. The right side of the brain is trying to sort out all the information coming in and I think once I've learned to quiet my thoughts more, the information will be easier to sort out and the headaches will be easier to handle.

The instructors told us to be the observer when these emotions and body aches occur. It may be difficult at first but practicing and training your mind to be the observer will help greatly. Also, please don't close the door on the emotions. You already know it's not yours but try to sort it out. Ask the question of who it is and put yourself on the other side of the door and be the observer. I hope this is helpful.

I used to do that all the time. When I was in high school, and college, I used to distance myself from everyone, or go to school after hours when no one was around. I couldn't put up with my family or friends, (especially girls) and could only handle level headed people around me. I meditated, but after a while, I learned to focus my own emotions, and make them so over whelming to others, that it reflected to mood in the atmospher to suit me. Picturing a clear light in your head and laughing and smiling a lot will help you. After a while, you don't have to think about it, and it will come natural for you to be happy, and make other around you happy as well. This way you don't have to pull the whole nocturnal living thing, even though I still perfer that:P sometimes it's hard to live your life in the dark. So, instead of being ruled over by everyone else... You control your own emotions and project them at others. ❤ If you have any more questions on the subject, feel freet to ask.
