Empath Or Not?


I'm not sure if I'm an empath or not, but sometimes I feel I can tell when someone is thinking or talking about me, my ears start burning and I start feeling a bit anxious. I can sense if someone hates me or not when my ears burn or if I get some other strange symptom. It kind of helps me pick up when something is not right, but can be very stressful because I feel I am always picking up all these felling and I can start acting a bit introverted because I get overwhelmed easily and I don't know how to deal with these feelings. My friend sometimes thinks that I would be talking about something and then it comes true. For example I was on the train and I knew that my ticket will be checked by the inspector even before getting out of the train. That's already happened a few times. Another one was when I telling my friend how I was really thirsty and it was so good being in the hotel getting all this free stuff (because it was a job trip) and then we found this shop and the lady offered me free water. These are not major things, but incidents which happened to me now and then. However I'm more concerned about my sensitivity to people especially when I sense hatred, I start feeling down and become isolated.

Its different for everyone I think. I'm 24 and mine has gotten so much stronger over the last year and still increasing in strength. Its kind of scaring me actually so I'm trying to get some more management techniques in place asap before it overwhelms me like it did in highschool.

The management techniques I have used so far is just being hyper aware of everything about you. Every physical and emotional feeling so that you can identify which ones don't belong and let go of them. I find that when I find where the feeling is coming from I can make it fade a bit, like its looking for acknowledgment. And lots of self analysing. I know myself inside out now.

Nature is also my best friend. Plants and animals are a big part of my home and the best place for me to chill is a headland overlooking the ocean. Forests also work well. Painting and drawing also helps me.

I have tried making a white light shield just then and its still in place. It seems to be working ok since my headache has gone, the painful knot in my chest has gone and the overwhelming feeling of wanting to cry has gone. Dont know how long it will hold as its my first but hopefully long enough for me to sleep. I'm also going to get an amethyst ring since I have heard they can help. Good luck with your's and don't despair, it feels like a curse a lot but it has a lot of benefits.

Thanks for your help. I'm already 22, I;m not really sure if it should have developed by now. What is the normal age when it fully develops? Or is it diffrent fo each individual.

Hi Kate,

I know how you feel about feeling down on the hatred. When I would get overwhelmed, I would camp out in my car by the ocean. (Negative Ions from the water help to make you feel positive.)

Anyhow, learn how to ground yourself. This is important. Do some simple tricks to push negative energy out of you, like burning sage, using your favorite essential oils, and maybe a plant or two in your room, like a peace lily. Also Salt baths and such. Create a little sanctuary for yourself that you can go to to rest and meditate. Remember to get out too and practice with these abilities. Its like using a muscle. Make it stronger so you can endure a little more each time you go out.

I have found for me that getting outside for 15 minutes just to walk and calm down helps a lot too.

I would also recommend staying away from alcohol and bars at least until you get a hang of your abilities.

Affirmations are nice too. Continue say them in your head at night until you fall asleep. Something like. "I Kate Believe in Myself" or "I am on a beautiful beach in the tropics" I like the beach one, because you might dream of being on a nice little tropical private beach just for you 😉

You might also look for books on Empaths. I'm sure someone here can recommend one that might be helpful. Check your local library if your on a budget. I have noticed that books have a way of finding me.

Best of Luck Kate!

Well of course you would, people hating other people can lead any empath to feeling isolated. Its so easy for that to happen, its a hard thing to control don't stress about it. It gets easier as you grow up and understand empathy more.

Blessed Be,
Tess ❤
