Am I An Empath? Please Help


What I'm trying to answer and have been for a long time is if I'm an empath or not, that's when I found this site and I thought you guys could help so please do. The thing that I found odd is the emotions I can pick up, for instance my sister (for security reasons I'll call her Amber) amber and I would have a fight, yet much later everything would seem fine but I could sense anger, here's what the conversation would sound like: "amber I know your still angry with me. What? I'm fine. Amber I know your angry don't lie. H-how did you know?!. Heh, I guess I'm just psychic like that..." I was kidding then but I never actually thought I was psychic. Then whenever someone is feeling something strong enough I could not only sense it, but feel it as well as thoughts, when there are more than one strong emotion it starts to get overwhelming I get massive headaches (happens daily) and stomach pains (often)

I must admit it is fun at times but a heavy burden too, as trying to explain why I feel the emotion they're feeling to friends like when my friend (for security reasons ill call him nick) nick was feeling sad and I was next to him sobbing because of what he was feeling trying to cheer him up (didn't go so well) here's what it sounded like: "*sniff* don't *sniff* feel bad *sob* it will be alright!...why are you crying? *sniff* me? *sniff* nothing! Why are you sad?! I DON'T KNOW!"

And as for paranormal experiences, well more than I can type...

So all the evidence points to me being an empath, I just want clarification from actual empaths to judge if I am or am not. If anyone thinks I am I would really appreciate it if you could post tips! Thanks for reading my story!

I'm right with you there. I was trying to find a reason for my nightmares when I cam across this site. Also, I believe that I am an Empath too. For all my life, I thought it was normal for people to just know how others were feeling. Lately, people have been weirded out when I would come up to them and ask what was wrong (random people on the street). It's amazing that they just open up to me and are like "well, I've had a hard day at work and my wife is divorcing me." Also, I think I am sensitive to animals also. It doesn't matter what animal it is, I'm always caught giveing them kisses, or hugging them. When they are scared I'm the first person to run to them and be by their side.

It's just odd for me to think that not all people know how to read others emotions. I come from a huge Empath family after doing some research, and also found that Empath is hereditary. Perhapes this is why I grew up thinking it was a normal thing.
My house hold was like this. "Persephone, eat your veggies." "no, I don't really like em" "Kim please just do it..." "why are you mad at me?" "because you won't eat your dang veggies." "okay." "oh and don't get that attitude with me, just because you want to go out." Didnt know that wasn't a normal dinner convo but apparently is isnt.

As for spirits, the creep me out. I do not see them often but when I do, I try my best to avoid them, but I have had experiances in that part also.

Hope you can identify with that a bit

Hey Deep freeze,

There's a possibility that you are displaying empathic abilities but just as likely you are close to these people (sister/friend) and can observe their body language or simply know their ways?

Emotionality? Sometimes an unforeseen trigger sets us off and we don't even know why. Headaches and stomach aches? If you were empathic I would say you need to learn to ground yourself to set some boundaries between your aura and everyone elses, however, I'm not going to preclude that there isn't a physical reason for your bodily reactions. If that were the case you may need medical attention so please don't assume-have that checked out!

In other words all other explanations have not been explored so I don't think it wise to rush to conclusions. You have found a network of people here who obviously support you and welcome you and want to help you if indeed you are psychic. I would be more inclined to think further experiences will reveal to you what you are dealing with so it behooves you to remain open and unbiased as possible. Meanwhile its a good practice for all of us to learn to ground ourselves and run the light through our chakras as Sue on Maui described. When you start getting 'hits' off of complete strangers that will be a little more of an indicator than those close to us whom we know very well. Take care DeepFreeze.

I feel you are an intuitive empath have you ever been placed next to someone at a dinner party who seems pleasant, but suddenly you are nauseous, have a pounding headache, or feel drained? Are you uncomfortable in crowds, even go out of your way to avoid them? Do you get easily over-stimulated by people or prefer being alone? When someone is distressed or in physical pain, do you start feeling it too? Now if you answered 'yes' to one or more questions, it's likely you have experienced intuitive empathy. Responding 'yes' to every question indicates empathy plays an active role in your life. If you're still unsure, take some time to notice how you relate to people one-to-one or in groups. It may require slowing such interactions down to become more aware of your style of processing energy. When learning to center yourself, this information is essential.
Hope this helps

To you, you're not much of an empath or your jsut learning how to use it. Dont take it for granted. 😢 I almost did, and my powers are disapating. I don't know if that is so. And to anglesent, I think the best thing is to learn how to use it, get help around here, and so then don't get to attached to your powers. Dont calibrate them AT ALL. This damages them. I have calibrated them, and (on a scale of 1 to 10) coming from a level 7 (my opinion) empath, that's reasonable.

Yes you are an empath. While you are developing your skills the first priority is to learn how to sheild yourself. Do this at least once a day, and in times where you feel the need for extra protection. This will last a day and once you develop your ability to tell your emotions from others right next to you, vs. Clouds of energy left behind, vs. All sorts of other energies, then you will find you don't need to do it so often and you can shrug it off more. To start: close your eyes and breath three or more deep breaths. Concentrate only on the breath. Put all stray thoughts in a thought box behind you and tell yourself you will concentrate on them later. Picture a white light around you, or a white bubble of light in which you are completely surrounded, like an egg. Then circle that with green light, then circle that with purple light. You are now sheilded from others emotions. You can also tell Archangel Michael to help defend you with his sword and sheild. White light is the light of creation or your God light. Green light is healing light and transmutes the negative energy into good and sends it back into the universe for its best use elsewhere. Purple light is the light of your highest wisdom and guides and protection. Good luck and keep on the good path! Love and light, Sue

I also go through what you do on a regular basis. However I have found its begging to ruin my friendships. I'm a confused medium at the moment, only because iv been meditating more and more, so I'm developing my skills. Unfortunately this also means my empath abilities are developing, which mean I can draw out negative people with ease.

Watch out for negative people if you decide to develop your skills, and be sure to distant yourself from them, for they have an un canny, unknown negative psychic ability to block such gifts as ours.

I don't have much advice on this topic seeing as I find it a bit of a struggle to deal with as I feel the emotions of spirits as well as those around me.

But please if you need to talk more simply e-mail me, you can find it on my profile.

As an empath/sensitive myself I can certainly say you are an empath. I understand how annoying it can be sometimes, when for no apparent reason you just start balling your eyes out. I've had times where I've litterally curled into a ball and screamed, knowing so much pain all at once. Then there's the simple stuff, like with "Nick" and "Amber," just knowing. Its good to just take a breath and push the feelings out. I think of it as physically taking a hoe and pulling all the "dirt" out of you. Mainly because its good to know how YOU are feeling. It's fine to feel other's feelings, its our gift and something we should cherish, but remember to PUT YOURSELF FIRST, because in order to try and help the others, you must be able to help yourself first.
Hope this helps, message me if you ever need to talk.

You probobly are an empath, most people don't notice it.I'm glad you did and seeked advice because, it can be metally and psychicly trying. Breathing exercises might help but, I don't know a lot about empaths.
I have a friend that could e-mail you.
She will most-likely be able to help more that I will. 😊
