Real Psychic Experiences

Just An Empath Or Something More?


Where to start... Well I just discover that there is a name for what I am, Empathic. For years I just thought I was crazy. I always just knew what people where thinking or feeling. Which to say the least made me uncomfortable.

But when I was about 14 I started seeing things or attracting things, usually dark things. For example I went with my friends to "The Tracks" and something hitched a ride in me. That night I was unusually tired, like I was drained. I went to bed before nightfall. Which is in itself very weird, because I was an night owl. I had a nightmare in which a Shadow man was chasing me in the graveyard by the tracks, I felt the evil coming off of it in waves. And no matter where I hid in the graveyard he'd always found me. When I finally woke up someone or something was stroking my face, as if to say "how pretty". There was no one else in my room.

Since then I have been seeing Shadow people. So a few years later I put up a mental/spiritual wall to keep everything out, but now I don't know how to get it down. I don't know how to reach my full potential as an empath and whatever else I am be. And I want to know why ghosts and shadow people were attracted to me. I need answers to these questions because my 7 year old is just like me, and I don't know how to help her or protect her. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Your experiences are somewhat similar to my own.

However I haven't ever been able to put up a 'wall' successfully. I've been able to give off "stay away" vibes, but then it makes me go from warm understanding individual to cold intimidating being.

Balance is really difficult in empathy.

I also attract energies, specifically negative ones.

I wish I had some great advice to give, but honestly I don't even know how to keep myself from being possessed or anything else of that nature:S

All I can say is trust your intuition first. Allow yourself to be intune with your surroundings.

Something I try to keep in mind, it is simple is: "be separate, be one"
Which basically means be separate from all negativity in your life and around you, it isn't your identity, it has no control over your life. And to be one with your own self, with the universe, and with all positive things that give you a sense of grounding.

The more positive energy you surround yourself with, the better off you'll be.
Fear is a very powerful emotion that things like to feed off of and cling onto.

So...release the fear, but also...
I have to say this...
Please please please...
When it comes to shadow people, ghosts, or any other type of entity, energy etc...
Do not try to communicate with it.

It might be benign, but when it isn't...once that door is open it is terribly hard to close it.

Sorry if I was redundant or anything...
Best wishes xx

I will gladly e-mail you sometime tomorrow or this weekend. Though, I should suggest that you imagine a protective white light around your body and your daughter's to help you from negative energy as well as your daughter not being too scared from the spirits and imagine this light pure, loving, and caring. It will hold for as long as a week if you do this long enough.

This helps me cleanse the negatives out of my way.

I will email when I get the chance!:)

Thank you all for all your help. I will try some the techniques for lowering my shield. I talked to my daughter about her abilities, after her first confirmed ghost sighting. She is terrified of ghost and the dark. Now that I think about it, it all makes sense. She has nightmares/night terrors since she was about 4 months old. I never could understand how a baby who has no knowledge of the world could be so afraid of the dark. Now I realize she is just more gifted than I am. I will try to take down my wall and build a shield just to keep out negative or evil. So I can help her do the same. Again thank you! I felt so alone for so long. I am glad I stumbled onto this site.

to improve your abilities meditations the one kind of like exercising meditation is.5-10minutes is good for a few days in a week and also do 1 for 25-30minutes on the weekend. It tunes your reception frequency. When meditating surround yourself with bright white light. That's called the light of god. It should stop you from feeling drained but if you are really tired do a power boost that's when you stand barefoot outside palms towards the sky. Suck in the oxygen through your nose at the same time draw energy from the ground through your feet and into your palms. Blow the air out hard at the same time as blowing surround your body with white light. After you feel pretty pumped up and your palms go really warm. Also tell your kid the truth but let her still be a kid don't put responsibilities on her. Her gift will evolve overtime. You may also have the gift of spirit cleansing is maybe why you are attracting the shadows. Try to contact crystal spirtual book shops in your area they maybe able to help you more.

Disabling the wall to re-open the portal can be quite easy. Simply read some books and watch movies about communicating with spirits, play with tarot cards, and then they will know. Then after you help one of them, more will follow.

The trick is to learn how to control the flood gate once it is open. I now get about 10 psychic dreams each night. People keep telling me I look tired and should get more sleep. If only they knew! 😕

Something you did that night when you were 14 had brought the first spirit to you. Ever since that night other shadow people knew they could contact you and so have. Now your son has it as well.

You need to discuss it with your son in a way that does not scare him. Let him know that they cannot harm him, that he holds the power to control how much contact they make with him, and that you will always protect him. Cover him with confidence rather than fear.

Let me know if you want my help developing your ability and communicating with the spirits.

I have no idea how to help you disable the wall to your abilities, but I can help you reach to your full potential as an empath.

Empaths have potent abilities. All it takes is a positive lifestyle and attitude, meditation, and I think I can.

The lowest ability of empaths is feeling emotions from people and/or animals, knowing a vague reason behind the emotion. The highest is the manipulation of emotions and swapping emotions with people.

I suggest not going as far as I did with the swapping emotions with people as it leaves them confused and quite tired after. Also, you feel exhausted after and you have to switch back the emotions or else you feel guilt. Focus on feeling the emotions and knowing why.

I think empaths are just one step closer to telepathics.

Once and a while, put up a protective shield to ward off spirits/shadow people and do a grounding meditation. It raises your awareness, yet wards off any negative effects of your abilities and your 7 year old's.

I wish you the best of luck and just reply back here in your topic if you need to ask me any questions. I'll check in once and a while.

You sound like a very gifted person... And I'm a little like you. I put up a shield once, instinctively though, and it's hard for me to get down. As for getting your shield down though, it's sort of simple. Be somewhere you can lie and be comfortable. Then, feel your aura around you. Really concentrate until you REALLY feel an energy around you, a pulsing almost, and concentrate on it. Then, almost feel through it, through the layers until you reach something that meets resistance of a sort. It's hard to find sometimes. Find this, and try to soncentrate all of it into a certain area, like the palm of your hand. Try to hold it there. Then, simply push it out, or into an object. It's difficult, and tiring, and it probably won't work the first time, so don't feel discouraged.:) As for your daughter, just tell her the truth. The worst normals are the one's who are so ignorant they can't see us, or the real world. Raise her to know the REAL truth, and teach her how special she is, because God loves her enough to let her be special.:) If you'd like to talk more, email me at the email on my profile page.
Good Luck, God's Love~
