Real Psychic Experiences

Advice For A New Empath? Please?


I'm 22 years old, and ever since I can remember, I've known I was different, but didn't until fairly recently get a clue of what it might be. I was looking around on someone I knows site, he's a psychic, and while listening to a little audio snippet, he mentioned empaths. I didn't know what it was, but I had to look up the word right then, it just struck me. While I was reading about it... It was so much "me." And just today he did a chart for me, and confirmed that I am an Empath, an Empath Medium, and a Dream Psychic... Or can be if I develop the skills. He feels that I'm coming into some of my abilities.

I've always been able to tell if a person is... Say... Lying about their mood, or just plain lying. I've always "just known." I can walk into a room and if there was just some sort of conflict, I can feel this strange discomfort. Like I'm intruding. And while it's only happened once, I think I've felt a spirit. Ever since it happened, I've regretted my reaction because I wanted to know what it was. Just lying in bed one night (in a house where my parents had repeatedly seen a 'ghost'), and I just felt a presence, like someone was suddenly there. And I screamed, and it was gone.

Then there's the silly things; just things that seem like coincidences but happen often enough to make me wonder. Like knowing what song is going to come on the radio next, or always happening to look at a clock when it's 12:34.

As I said, this person feels that I'm coming into my abilities, but honestly, compared to a few years ago, I feel like I've sensing less. Some people I just can't read, or that it's just happening less and less.

My reason for writing all this though, is that I want to know what I can do to develop these abilities. If anyone has any advice, I would love it. I worry that I've somehow shut it off or something, and I don't want that. This is a gift, and I want to strengthen it.

psionic has hit the nail on the head. In order to make your abilities stronger you must protect yourself. I know it may sound a bit monotonious (horribly spelled) You will see. This may be even wierder but when I do put up this shield I was speaking about earlier... I have more control over where my energy goes... When using the shield I can limit myself to just reading one person, and I get a much clearer reading... So by doing such a simple process of shielding... I helped my abilities improve, and my use of them... And like everything practice makes perfect.

To strengthen your ability, you have to protect yourself first. If you go straight into development with no protection, then you can easily loose contol and also be overwhelmed with what you feel. Once you have protected yourself, you will be protected to develop your gift. Think about this, you can enter the minds of everyone you walk pass, you go too far into someones mind, and pick up things you don't want to know, but you do anyway. You can't contol your gift and you pick everything up at once. Trust me, this will give you one big headache.
What I am trying to get to is, that with protection, you can develop your gift, and you won't be comsumed by the emotions or thoughts you feel.
I hope this helps. Good luck.:)

No one is really answering my questions...
I don't want to know how to protect myself.
I want to know if there is a way I can strengthen my ability.

I appreciate the comments, but yeah... =/

you know I knew nothing about this psychic shield but if someone negative was around and it got to overwhelming, I would actually do it without even knowing. I would almost surround myself with energy as to not be effected by them, or even if someone was coming across to strong I would put this barrier. Guess I was shielding subconciously.

I would reccomend you program a psychic shield. This will be helpful, when you are healing, and when you are reading other emotions. If an empath can't control what they feel, then they might find it too overwhelming, because you are feeling other peoples emotions and you might get sucked into thier emotion.

Visualize bright light surrounding you, everywhere, and say to yourself confident things, such as this psychic shield will be with me always, it will counteract negative influences, and only allow positive energies to imfluence me, I will be protected from all negative forces etc.

I hope this helps. I have programmed a psychic shield, because soemtimes, I can't control my telepathy. The psychic shield protects me from being comsumed by someones thoughts.

And welcome.:)

The thing is though, that I don't try to read them. Before it would just come to me, but it doesn't happen much anymore.

kazm, I also have strong empathic abilities. I have known about them my whole life but have more recently been interested in learning about them. I find it easier if I don't try and let it come naturally. Alot of times when no one is looking I like to feel out there energy, sounds kind of kooky, but its very enlightening. I like to test myself, and sometimes it is so clear I can tell the thoughts of someone or even crave the foods that they are craving. So the more practice you get, the better. Empathy from what I have researched can lead into some powerful things if mastered. Please read my story and see if you have any similarities, its nice to see that there are others like myself.

people always say that you have to concentrate and stuff, and later it'll come more easily to you. So I guess you can try doing that...

When you have a psychic ability, you need to exercise your body to sync with the ability. Because even though what you're sensing is mostly in your skull, you still need to let the energy flow smoothly through the rest of you.

An easy method is to stretch as soon as you wake up in the morning.

hows it

You are most likely to be a healer. Healers can read peoples emotions with in a split second. The reason why you can't read people at the moment is because you might be trying to hard instead of relying on on instincts. Ways on improving your gift is by colour in pieces of paper eg red, blue, yellow and so on. On seperate paper. Get someone to place the papers in seperate envelopes and try to work out which colour is in in which envelope. Its a form of psychometry when you master that try reading friends of family pieces of jewellery by holding in your hands and see if you can read information off it takes practise to learn but its fun way to learn about your gift. Also try meditating majes you more aware of things around you and also gives you energy and when meditating at the start imagine bright white light surrounding you. Make meditating fun by imagining your going on adventures or doing something you like.

First thing an empath must always learn how to do, is shield. Shielding is a very huge part of every empath, as it keeps unwanted feelings from hurting you. Visit our MySpace blog on shielding for more information on how you can improve it. Oh. And welcome.
