Empth With A Problem


Like most, I have known since I was young that I was "special" but not until recently have I begun to understand my situation. I started doing research on being an empath and trying to understand my inner self.

A few days ago I felt an unnatural presence in my apartment. My body then became paralyzed by a strange tingling feeling. I didn't see or hear anything but I felt it. The odd thing is ever since that happened I now can't seem to "turn off" my empathy. It used to be random and just happen when it seemed I needed it. Now I pick up emotions and feelings from everywhere. I can barely stand being in crowded places for extended periods of time without feeling emotionally drained. I can't listen to music or watch television without feeling the raw emotion of what's happening.

I can't explain it better than that but those who can help me know what I mean. Its beginning to take away from the joy of my own life. I just want to be able to control it or and least be able to filter my senses. Has this happened to anyone else? I want to make sure that I'm not going crazy and I'm not really sure anyone else I know would be able to understand or help. Any info would be great and I appreciate anyone who takes the time to help. Thank you

Fear and pride are our enemies, aswell as ignorance. Its not your ability to access deeper levels of perception that make you different. Feeling different from people around you comes from fear and pride. These negative feelings cause us to missunderstand one another and cause separation. Love connects us together. When I study anything I seek a non linear path. My path expands as my perception grows. Some people will tell you to go seek help from a single source. Seek help from many sources. Pray and ask God if He will giude you in the way you should go. Whatever you do stay away from anything or anyone that would tell you or try to get you to believe that you are different or alone. We are all connected. Imagine a large color wheel, you are simply one color connected to many. If you are truly an empath like me you should be able to sence when people aren't truly trying to help you. Many people only want you to copy them. Be yourself yet understand that we are all part of the same creation. Here's my email in case you want me to explain anything in more detail.

Contrary to the bleak "Iunderstand," empathy is indeed a special gift.

Not everyone has it, and those that do have it, have it for a specific reason - you certainly don't learn about this trait in health ed.

Psychologists are our enemy, as they would like to see us drugged and locked in rooms for our gifts - don't go to those people.

Seek out user Oracle101 for specific advice on shielding.

Please understand that these "abilities" are not special super powers like some kind of X-man mutation. All of this stuff about empathic ability is WAY more about psycology rather than special powers. You have been stressing out lately and it is causeing you to hyperfocus on your empathic side. You really shouldnt take all this so seriously. Its not mystical at all. People use phrases like "psychic protection". All the word psychic means is any sence beyond the physical 5. Personaly I like to use the word intuition or the phrase intuitive ability. I know what you are feeling. I used to struggle with very strong feelings and energies that came from other people around me. For me, it was on my bad days that my empathic ability would kick in the strongest. The reason for this was because my negative feelings caused me to attempt to fill a void created by all the negativety that drained me of positive energy and because of this I would be very good at reading people and how they feel particularly on bad days. This is what I suggest. Whenever you start to feel overtaken by negativetly or any other type of energy you don't want to feel. First separate yourself from whatever it is that is causing you to feel this way. After you leave the area simply take a few moments to identify the specific negative energy. Then, smile even if you don't feel like smiling and think of something happy. I use a song that I will sing to myself or a memory. Use the positive energy of the song or the memory to fill you and let it push away all your negative feelings. If this doesn't work simply call a friend and tell them exactly how you feel. The trick here is not supernatural mystical energy. Negative experiance causes negative thought, neg thought causes neg beliefs, and when you add up your neg beliefs that structure is called your worldview. If you have a negative worldview it will cause you to generate negative experiance and the cycle perpetuates itself. I use many techniques that are based on reason and intelegent thought. Read my story if you like, maybe you can relate. I'm certain you will be ok and will not have to stress so hard about what has been on your mind lately. I suggest accualy working out followed by some good stretching rather than yoga. Theres a lot of toxins that store up in your muscles and working out and stretching helps to get them out of your body, plus working out on a regular basis helps more blood to circulate throughout your body which will make you feel like you have more energy and it will help you sleep because you will be tired. Lastly, nothing is better for the mind than looking in the mirror and feeling good about the way you look.:)

"Psychic Protection," by Ted Andrews may help you, he has a couple of strengthening your aura meditations. They only take about 15 minutes, and really give you a sense of control. Take it seriouslly, we can't run around using and being afraid of these gifts we've been given without protection. I will heed to my advice also. Interested in your progress.

thank you for the help. I went to a yoga class tonight and I can already feel a tiny bit of tranquility. Shielding is something I need to work at, but with time and patience I know I can master it. Thanks!

I would suggest do yoga twice or more a week. Particularly hatha yoga.

Qigong is great.

Become aware of qi and the different sensations that we emit (hot, cold, contraction, expansion, vibration, light, purging and tonifying...)


Youtube shen shen tao and try out some of the postures...

This "State" can sometimes be caused by stress or a trigger we pull without realising. The most healthy and successful way to keep your empathy on, but without suffocating you, is by meditation and shielding. Go to our blog on Shielding at to read it. We hope it helps!
