Empath - Knowing Is Peace Of Mind


Ever since I was little, I was always different. I was always the oddball. And I always saw things the way they were. My family described me as "observant". As I got older, I became the "go-to friend". The crying shoulder, the good listener. I always thought I was just good at helping people and giving advice, and the fact that I always "knew" how people were feeling never struck me as odd. Now, at the age of 21, I have come to realize that I'm an Empath. My strong of love of animals, knowing who has good intentions and who does not without ever speaking to someone, feeling sick in certain venues, reaching out to people who I "know" need a helping hand, without them ever saying a word. All this and much more, I thought was just part of my "weirdness".

It wasn't until very recently that my mood swings were going out of control. Before entering a mall, I would be all smiles and after walking by a bunch of people I would become very nervous or angry and sometimes happy. The effect would last hours. And lately, I had been struggling at my job. I couldn't look at people without getting a weird mental picture of them. For instance, I work in a Photography Studio and I talk to people every day. Some sessions were hard for me, because I know the pregnant woman I was photographing was not happy to be having a child. Sometimes I would have another employee finish a shoot because the mental pictures of a father arguing with a mother in front of the children was to much to bear. But it was not always negative. Some people felt comfortable enough to share their life stories with me, share their victories and triumphs and cry during a shoot. I knew when my co-workers were upset, when they felt lonely or sick even though they seemed upbeat and joyful on the outside.

I know when someone is lying to me. I know when my parents fought, even though they got over it by the time I saw them. I feel physically ill when my boyfriend/family is in trouble or feeling ill as well. The night my cousin tried to kill herself, I couldn't sleep and was having terrible muscle aches (she tried to overdose on muscle relaxers). I had a panic attack at home at the same time my boyfriend was at a gas station that was held up by a thief. I can watch a McDonald's commercial and cry. I can read a book or hear a song and feel like the song or book was written for me or about me. My moms dog follows me around the house. Eats when I do, sleeps when I do, goes to the bathroom when I do. And waits by the window until I come home. She loves all people, but the obsession is only with me. Children are always incredibly attracted to me, and some people become dependent on my company, so much so that I will sometimes have to cut ties with them, because I can not handle being around them.

I believe I am an Empath because my grandmother is one as well. She is very wise and very intuitive. She always knows who is good for you and who is not. She can read people very well and is always seen talking to someone who needs help.

It was only yesterday that I discovered what my gift is. This gift of knowledge. I know now what I am and who I am. I am different and I am blessed. And although I sometimes curse this gift, it is a gift nonetheless.

I can not find out how to contact you any other way than via by thaliaxspookieness posting... Sorry thaliaxspookieness.:-)

I would really like to get more info from you about the ringing noise that you researched. More specifically, I was hoping that you had a link to the research that included tracking activities of a person to see why and what is going on in relation to environment of a person with this.

I have seen countless doctors and they all disagree as to why I hear this noise and the posting that you submitted nails my situation. I do not believe it is Tinnitis or any other medical issue.

The noise turned on in my head in May of 2008 and has not left since. I like to call it a "high, low, medium... Noise day" each morning. In reading your post, I have become extremely interested in documenting my activities, mood and environment and see how accurate the information is so that I may have a better understanding. I hope that you have a link to an existing template or something like that.

I hope to hear back from you.

My immediate response would be that you are seeing auras. I know they say seeing an aura is easy but for me it isn't. Either that or I'm not doing it right or trying hard enough or something, etc. I have read however that the aura has many layers or complexities to it - a physical map of illnesses in the body and a layer which shows emotions, etc and so forth. You mentioned that you usually let go of the snapshot after 5 seconds or so. What happens if you try to hold onto the snapshot longer? Do you see more? Maybe you should try experimenting with what you are seeing. Maybe its auras you see.

I really want to address something that has to do with being observant and empathic. While I talk to people, I see their body as a whole, and I get an impression that seems like a physical and emotional snapshot. It almost seems like I can see if someone feels unhealthy. I see them in a different light and this shift of perception lasts for about 5 seconds or so... And I usually let it go because I feel bad, like they can feel embarrassed in some way. I just feel like I'm seeing something significant and have never heard anyone talking about this, so I'm in the dark on this topic.
If anyone has any insight at all, I would like to hear it. I don't mean to intrude on the discussion and feel that it's related in a way.
Thanks for listening.

I've really enjoyed reading this story and everyone's posts. You know I always thought I was just a moody and emotional person. I used to really think there was a chance I was bipolar. I couldn't figure out some of the things that happened to me. I could tell things about people that I couldn't explain. Like I could 'feel' what kind of person they were ect.
I remember when I discovered 'empath.' I connected with the word immediately. It was just a good feeling of peace like oh of course this is what I am.
I'm glad I found this site. It's nice to be able to hear stories from other people who have had similar experiences.

I too have recently discovered the same things as you. It's weird, isn't it? Like knowing you were always out of place and then figuring it out FINALLY. That's why I'm so glad I found this website:) I always thought that everyone got extreme emotions because of their connection with others. Boy, was I wrong. I haven't gotten to posting my story yet, but I hope to here more from you!

Yes! Yes! Yes!

I am a teen. And luckily, I have discovered this really early. Everything mentioned in here has fit my description of what I go through very well.

Since I was a child. I was convinced I was special. I loved the supernatural, and I loved animals, and nature very dearly.

Throughout my youth, I have had coincidences and precognitive dreams

For the past three years, I had extreme ups and downs for absolutely no reason. After 3 or 4 hours at a party, I would sit down, and not speak to anyone, because I felt completely drained.
These 'stages' were unpredictable, and always only happened when I was around people.
I thought I had a manic-depressive illness (more commonly known as Bipolar disorder).
I became very depressed, and got into self mutilation, and tried to kill myself by overdosing, however, could not build the willpower to actually do it.
But after hours and hours of counseling, I felt better, but still had no clue as to why I was feeling these things.

But, until recently, I have realized that I could read personalities, and sense emotions, extremely clearly.

What convinced me, was me having a 'shot' at reading some one I had never met before. I was eerily accurate. I could tell exactly what this girl was like, her interests, her dislikes.

One night I while watching T.V, and I suddenly felt like crying. A minute later I got a text from my friend, who broke up with her boyfriend, and was, indeed, crying.

I also feel spirits as well. I can't see them, but I cans sense they're presence, and can sometimes feel them touching me. Which sounds creepy. But its not that creepy. It feels slightly comforting...

Also, yes, I feel good about myself. I believe that I am a very good person.

These additional details, can you relate to them?

I really connect with what you're saying and I think that you are on the right track. The word empath may mean something to different people, even though there is a general feeling of what is meant by EMPATH.

Reading your story, I felt like I came to understand myself better; and the fact that there are hundreds of empath stories, yet felt most connected to yours is significant to me.

I think the initial feeling I had while reading your story was that you are being sincere when you said you finally understand who you are. I believe you!
Sharing your story means a lot to me. My personal experiences resonate with yours.

Deep down inside, I have always felt good about who I am; even when I have done unwise things in the past, I knew that at my core I was good. You have to care for yourself even when no one else will, and in those moments of truth you don't talk down to yourself.

Always have compassion for yourself and don't call yourself cursed. The power of words is great, and writing is very meaningful. Please, just be happy about who you are. You are, and we all are, blessed to be who we are.

You can transform yourself any way that you want, so just work with what you have... Which is a finely tuned sense that helps you, and helps the world.

I'm thankful that we share these qualities. For the past two weeks, I have been feeling a lot of synchronicities and repeated words. One of the themes that is relevant to your story is:

We should accept everything just the way it is.

So, don't resist life. It's like trying to run downward on an upward-moving escalator. Just go with the flow.

You are right when you say that you are blessed. We have all received so many wonderful gifts and we can do so many good things with the knowlege that we have gained. I'm happy that you had this breakthrough. I hope that you find continual enlightening and have a wonderful year.
