Psychic Empathy Explains A Lot


I don't really know where to begin as I just stumbled across the definition of my abilities earlier today. I guess a good place to start would be to explain that as recently as 5 hours ago I was contemplating taking my own life. That may seem abrupt or harsh but please try to understand my circumstances.

I feel everything, all the time! I mean physically feel the emotional state of everyone in a room. An angry person can make me lash out unexpectedly and a depressed person simply makes me not want to live. While on the contrary if someone with a beautiful happy energy walks in I can flip immediately into that state.

To say the least this is very frustrating and overwhelming. Not to mention it physically drains me of all my personal energy needed to function day to day.

I have been dealing with this all my life, I can remember being a very young child (somewhere between the ages of 4 and 7) and being frustrated at the lack of control I had over myself. I would relate these feelings to being a puppet on strings. My child's mind perceiving that there must be some wicked control freak puppeteer having a hayday playing with me.

As a teenager I contemplated death on a regular basis, even tried to follow through a couple of times and once it landed me in the psycho ward of my local hospital. After several visits with the child shrink he declared me a human sponge! Though it meant little to me at the time I can look back now and say he was pretty spot on!

A human sponge, now at 30 years old those words finally mean something to me, psychic empath. After hours of searching the web today looking for a way to stop feeling other peoples emotions and block out the messages that come along (mostly from people I am very close to) I have discovered these terms and fit every description on every site to a tee. I am a psychic empath! And I am elated to find out that I am not alone and not crazy:)

A little evidence for my case? Well there is the fact that almost daily I can think of a person and they will within minutes call me. Down to the most random people, two days ago I picked up a business card from my bedroom floor, it belonged to my sons soccer coach from the year before, I looked at it and thought "I'm not going to need this anymore so I threw it in the trash. Before I could walk back to place on the floor where the card had been laying my phone began to ring! I knew upon the first ring it would be him, the soccer coach, but how? And why? Coincidence? Anyhow he called to invite my son to this years rep tryouts. Which is all fine and dandy but seriously I hadn't thought of the man in almost a year, stumble across his card and bam he calls?

So that was the most recent of my many "coincidental" experiences. There are many many more but I fear I've rambled enough thus far.

What I really hope to gain from posting my story here is some help learning to control my abilities and block out all the energies and emotions that plague me everyday.

I am desperate to feel my own emotions and gain control of my life. I have three children and they need me, I know, but it's sad to say that even they can overwhelm me with their emotions to the point that I want to dig a hole in the ground to hide in.

My empathy is so strong that I can even walk into a random place and know before I look up who is smiling and willing to communicate and who is negative and walled off. I am affected all day everyday and I need help.

Everyone on this site seems open minded and knowledgeable and I look forward to hearing from all of you!

I took a Reiki class lately and I remember the teacher saying that she was empathic enough that going to a place like a mall to shop was usually more than she could handle. That is not why she got involved in Reiki, but a by product of her involvement was that the empathy no longer caused her problems. I have no idea why or how or if it works for everyone. Just trying to give you another possibility. I guess I am a little empathic and it probably causes me a little tension but not so I really notice without looking for it. I did one time find a sight where empaths posted messages and shared experiences. I guess you would call it an empathic support group chat room. I know longer have the URL. Good luck and I hope everything works out for you.

It is possible you have psychic empathy, another possibility is that you mirror a person.
Most of us mirror persons to connect to them, you know, like sitting in a chair in exactly the same way. Now, some people also mirror facial expressions and this triggers an emotional response. So you see someone who looks a bit mad, you mirrors him and feel mad, the persons sees you look mad and gets even madder etc etc.

for me I would recommend learning how to create a psi ball, then in turn a psi shield. It will allow you to have more control over what you feel. And as your psi abilities become stronger you will be less likely to feel unwanted emotion

I can't wait to read that article on coping with empathy, Anne V.

To the author of this post: for myself, I have learned to cope by reading as much literature as I can about coping with empathy and psychic abilities. It helps.

My web developer is posting an article later today on this website called, "Coping with Being an Empath" but I'll paste it here:

Being an empath doesn't mean we can't take care of ourselves and set boundaries. I have spent many a year working on how to cope with this kind of sensitivity. I'm in my 40's now and I'll share some of what I've come to terms with. One is to set boundaries with "takers" whether those people are asking for money, time, or energy. I am not implying not to help people, not at all, but I'm talking about the people who just sap you over and over like a vampire. Kindly let them know you've given what you can and they will have to deal with their issues on their own. This doesn't make you a bad person; it makes you a mature one. I set boundaries all the time with people who would literally suck me dry. Let the guilt go and take care of yourself. When you do this, you'll be better served in the long run to help those you wish to and not be utterly sapped of energy. Stay clear of drama kings and queens. Some people not only thrive on chaos and drama, but want you as a part of that. That's an express ticket into misery so pick your friends and associates wisely. Learn the word "no".

Second, always make time for you, whether it's fishing, gardening, walking or a 'time-out' in a hot bathtub with a candle. We need downtime to smooth out our energies. This is very important because our energy is like cash and we have to be careful how it is spent. I also highly recommend finding time for some nature in your life. For some that is very difficult because they live in a city, but even New York has Central Park. We are not only humans but part of this earth, and we have gotten so disconnected that we've lost that natural healing that occurs when we are in or near nature. I am lucky in that I live in Washington State and am very close to mountains, the beach, rivers and forest but most of us can make a trip to this if it's not close at hand.

I've heard people ask, "How do I block these energies?" Energies are like radio waves in that you can't block them out, but you can refuse to tune into them. Turn off the radio, tv, computer and occasionally the cell phone! An empath needs more silence than others. Hopefully you're not the type that needs noise to not feel lonely and can allow silence into your life. And related to silence, remember to meditate.

An empath may need to make bigger choices about where they live, with whom, and what they do for a living. I was originally from central California and then moved to southern California. I found those energies to be way too hectic for me. That led to a big decision that I felt had to be made: what reflects me? What is more in tune with who I am as an empath? That answer ended up being Washington state. I saved my money, quit my job and moved to an apartment that bordered a state park full of evergreens and a block from the un-crowded beach. That was about 20 years ago and I've never regretted that decision. I now live on two and a half acres in a log home with a lovely organic garden. This decision applies to people and work too. I know for the parents out there you can't pick your children, but you can still set healthy boundaries and ask for some consideration with noise level.

And last, be mindful of your body because mind and body are linked. A stressed out energy depleted body is going to lead to the same condition in the mind. Jacking yourself up on chemicals and junk food will fray the mind and splinter your energies.

In summary, pick your environment and people, embrace nature and silence, and you'll find yourself thriving like a well watered plant in the sunshine.
