Real Psychic Experiences

Empathy And Me?


salutations everyone!

I found this website and was reading a lot about what everyone had to say. Some of the experiences are actually pretty parallel to what I have to ask.

You see, ever since I can remember I have been very sensitive to other people's feelings. Especially when it comes to people and lying. All my friends like to call me the "human lie detector" because I can just sense when someone is lying. Its like I get this "heat" in my stomach and I feel like I'm lying... Even when I'm not the one saying anything. I can also sense when someone has bad intentions against me. One such event I believed saved me and my friend from a mugging.

Me and my best friend were walking home one night when I felt this feeling of harm and anxiety coming from a dark alley. I mean it was pitch black and we walked right by it because we didn't see anyone there. But I felt it and as soon as we went past it I told my friend to run as fast as we could to my house (as it was the closest safety area). As I looked back I saw a man emerge from the alley and it looked like he was holding a metal pipe! Yikes! This makes me want to become a Police man because I know whatever it is can help:D. Also my friends don't like to tell me surprises because I can kind of feel their excitement before they tell me, and I get this inkling as to what the surprise is about before they even tell me.

The downside to all this is that sometimes I get "emotionally" exhausted fast sometimes when I'm at school, work, and home. SO much so that I become physically tired and lethargic. There also is another downside. Sometimes I feel though as if I can "get" energy from other people. But it usually only happens when I'm a that emotionally/physically exhausted point. That kind of scares me because it feels like I'm "draining" this energy from another person and I don't think its right personally. As a religious person it kind of scares me

: (

Now my Question is... What's up? Am I empathic or just lucky? And about the "draining" thing from other people... How can I stop that? How can I stop from being emotionally/physically exhausted from this? And the "draining" thing? I don't like it. Is that normal?

thanks! I will def try the barrier idea:D
I wish I could still explain the "draining" part. I have read up on the psychic vampire thing and it seems sorta of similar. And yes... The "evil" intentions thing gets pretty trippy to feel. 😲

I agree completely, negative energy is VERY potent. I pick up on it VERY easily.

I can tell when people are lying, I can tell when they mean me harm physically, emotionally or financially.

To the original poster. The only thing I have ever figured out that works on the spiritual drain is to gravitate away from congregations of people. This is why most empaths prefer to be by themselves and prefer or jobs with very little people around them. Empaths are loners and hermits for the most part.

Interesting. Recently I've learned a lot about what you're talking about, through emails of friends and comments on my own stories.:) It sounds like you're very much an empathetic. The "draining" part sounds like what a psychic vampire would do, but don't be alarmed. Most of them don't even know that they drain people. However, they don't have their own energy (hence draining others'), and you seem to, so you might not be one. But then again, I'm not sure if empathetic people can drain others - does anyone else here know?

If you want to protect yourself, you should make a shield whenever you start to feel emotionally exhausted (this could be because sensing so many others is exhausting, or because of a psychic attack). First relax and take a few deep breaths. Then imagine your body filling with pure white light, and think of it extending out and around you, so that it makes a bubble around your body. Give it a slight mental push to test it. If the anxiety stops, the shield is most likely up and working. Keep reminding yourself to strengthen it throughout the day. Hope this helped:)

I am also VERY sensitive to a person's intention... I can simply recognize evil in a simple 2 second walk by on the street from someone... That seems to be the strongest energy that I can pick up... I guess what I am saying is, even if you doubt any other part of your intuition, don't doubt that one... Take it seriously... It will protect you and the people you love.
