Woman With Empath Abilities


I am a 26 year old woman and I have known since I was a child that I have had empath abilities I just always assumed that it was normal until I reached my adult years. As a child people would always just say that I was very 'in tune' with other people's emotions. I still never really made a big deal of it because it would always be with people that were close to me. In recent years I have started to take on the emotions and feel things from people that are not close to me and even sometimes total strangers. For example 3 years ago I started to feel really down and out and didn't know why and a childhood acquaintance (not a close friend) kept coming to my for almost a week straight. I found it very strange that this person even occupied my thoughts because me and her only spoke in passing and nothing more but I couldn't shake the thought of her. After a week of trying to figure out why she was on my mind and me really being down in the dumps with no just because I received a phone call that she had committed suicide. This really scared the crap out of me.

A better example was this past weekend I felt really down in the dumps and depressed once again and even cried numerous tears and didn't know why. Nothing is going on in my life for me to feel that way but I felt grief and confusion. I even sat around and did things that were out of character for me like sitting around with no music, television, and lights off. Which is not normal for me as I hate silence and dark. All day Saturday and Sunday I felt this way with no explanation and somehow I shook the feeling yesterday. Life went on as normal until today I was speaking with my cousin and she brought up a friend of her's name that I have spoken to in a friendly matter before but really don't know much about her. When my cousin spoke the girl's name a flushing feeling came over so I told my cousin to ask her friend if she had been really depressed about some things this weekend, after reluctance and calling me crazy a thousand times she did so and the friend replied in a text...'Yes! Your going to make me cry right now, how did you know, please stay out of my head'. After freaking my cousin out I explained to her why I told her to ask that. I actually have a feeling of calmness now I don't know how but I feel that her friend somehow projected her emotions on me.

People have always come to me for advice on things that they couldn't go to other people on because I help them see the deeper issues to their problems and emotions. I have not been trained or taught to do this. Its a gift that I have that sometimes I wish I didn't its almost as if I can see a person without their human mask on. Ironically my name in college was Mother Nature but, at that time I didn't quite know the significance it would hold but now I am well aware. There have been numerous others instances where I have even had my dreams reveal people's true fears and emotions.

The one thing that scares me the most is when I pick up on total strangers that I know have ill intentions and thoughts not necessarily towards me but in general. I work in a field that I come in contact all day with people from all walks of life and I jokingly say that when I get off work that I have had to deal with so many spirits I'm just tired. But truth is because I have to come in contact with so many people all day and deal with so many different emotions I am emotionally drained by the time I get home and I don't have a hard job. It has gotten so bad that I don't do anything anymore that requires me to be in a crowded atmosphere unless I absolutely have to. I have even had instances of grocery shopping and had to leave my buggy and go to the restroom and cry for no apparent reason.

I need to learn a way to block this at times before it consumes me. I don't mind having the gift because it has helped me to help others by saying the right things at the right time but is there some way to turn it off when I don't want to be bothered with it? Somedays I'm ok with just seeing people's masks I don't always want to know what they're feeling inside. Please help

I know exactly how you feel. I do the very same things. It seems everytime I go through something that is really trying, I seem to get better at it. Its like being broken then regrown, not rebiult but regrown. Its really hard somtimes dealing with such extremely deep emotion and thought. Your story really caught my thought. I relate completely. I have learned how to focus. It in deep thought to imagine what a persons memories look like. Its like I learn how someone thinks and feels. Then I just think and feel like they do. When I was young I did not have much of a social life so I found relation to the world around me through music and using my imagination. Some really crazy stuff has happened to me my whole life. I don't mean to keep talking about myself but I was really hoping to meet some people on here that are like me. My whole life iv felt completely separated from everything around me to the point that suicide became a rational thought and seemed like a good idea. People I knew from a church saved my life. Ever since I recovered iv been way better at it. I can drive past some on the opposite side of the road and feel them, understand then, like I know what they are going through. Do you relate to my story at all?

I am also an empath, so I can sympathize with you. It progressed to the point where I was literally in physical pain when ever someone I was close to was as well. For example I'd wake up with my knee hurting only to find out that my mother had tripped and banged her knee on the bed frame. I haven't found a sure way to tune out others but sometimes it helps when I focus on one of my emotions. For example if someone is projecting sadness I try to picture all the things that make me happy, kind of negating the effect in a way. I have found for me it's easier to tune others out if I'm really focused on a certain task. I'm just expressing a theory but maybe because your job isn't particularly difficult like you said, maybe that gives your mind the freedom to wander. Again just a theory, I'm merely relating it to my experiences. Still couldn't hurt to try.:) hope it helps, either way I'd love to hear your experiences.

I am also an empath. I pick up on emotions. I can also see auras which helps me with the meanings. You also remind me of myself. I feel random peoples emotions and know if the peron is a very bad person or decent person. It has drivin me crazy at times. My friend told me a story about how she slit her hand open (I am also a mind reader keep that in mind) And I felt her pain and seen her pain. So it is 2 times worse. But I am happy with my abiliteis and hope the get stronger.

Gods Love and protection.

You reminded me about a few years ago when my Aunt had called late at night and when I grabbed the phone, I knew my Uncle had passed away before she said anything to my mum. I want to say I was around 16-17 years old. I'm 20 now.

I can pick up on emotions of people too. I feel that this talent of mine is a gift from God. I've been recently practicing Aura Readings on my friends... Who aren't super superstitious. My first reading the other night was on my friend who was superstitious and I freaked him out, haha.

When this reminded me of my Uncle, I told my mum about it, since I felt she needed to know. She's very supportive of my talents and when I get to go home (I'm in college) next week, I'm going to practice it on her too.

It can be scary at times. Especially if the emotion is negative, it messes up your whole day. I can suggest meditating, asking your angels to protect you throughout the day. That way you won't be so drained at the end of the day.

When I pick up energies, my third eye goes crazy. I have to learn to protect that. If anything, since I'm somewhat new to learning about Empaths, I would suggest seeking out help from:

In the meantime, be safe <3
