Growing Empathic Abilities Or Something New?


It wasn't all too long ago that I began to be able to feel the emotions of those around me, and with a bit of practice I became quite good at it. When I sought the guidance of those with similar stories I came across this site, which has helped greatly over the past period of time, yet as these powers have changed I have not found a similar tale in any other story.

While I know certainly that I am an Empath, and have learned to deal with empathic abilities, other occurrences have some to be in which I've not a clue if they relate. As example, at one point I had been tremendously frustrated with a friend for reasons I shall not go in to, and at a breaking point I instinctively thrust my hand out to his forehead. It was not as a strike, simply contact. At that point I seemed to push my frustrations into him, and I saw the fear grow in his eyes. I felt horrible for what had happened, yet also curious. Later, while experimenting with what had happened, I found myself to be able to both push and pull emotions, and even some physical pain from those around me, leaving no trace of it in its originator.

Another peculiarity I have noticed is that I can, with a lack of a better word, "tune" myself to someone. I can act identical to whom I choose, but not by feeding of their energies as a Psy Vamp but in a way reconfiguring myself. They are in no way affected by the process. I can be as capable as they in many subjects, and feel as they do. It is an odd and nearly indescribable experience.

These are new experiences to me, and I wonder if they are related in any way to empathy. If anyone with similar experiences or simply knowledge on their part can assist me, it would be greatly appreciated, and possibly needed.

An addition to my previous comment: Look at life as if you're a radio reciever. You have the ability to channel and give off information (most people give off information without noticing it). There are many other radio stations that exist, but the only one that you hear is the one that you're tuned to. Use this as an analysis when your're channeling information off of others! I think if you try expanding your abilities, it will well be worth it. See ya!.;)

Love and light to all, and...

For the first part, you seem to be demonstrating that you are not just an Empath, but you are also a healer- someone who has the natural ability to heal others. That is where you can push/pull emotions/pain to/from others.
I believe that the second ability you describe is the ability to channel information that resonates off of others (like telepathy, I believe that's what it's called). You can tune into their vibration (I do this a lot too), connect to them, and receive information. I'm doing this to expand my abilities- telepathy and channeling the information goes hand-in-hand with empathy.

It seems many people have the ability to project emotions (*E*nergie*s* in *motion*) and/or recieve emotions as well. I am also an Empath and a healer (though my techniques are way different than yours) and I channel my energy into the atmosphere via aerokinesis (the ability to control/manipulate the air). It is snowy whenever I want it to be, windy whenever my energy gets very intense (regardless of my state of mind/emotion); it is rainy when I am sad (or whenever I want it to be), and it is sunny when I am excited (get the idea now? Etc etc.).

I have been projecting positive energy for years without realizing it. It left me drained when I was new at it too.

I've gained enough strenght of spirit over the years that I can leave it up constantly unless someone is depressed nearby, in which case it sucks up my energy fast.

I'm still not sure I'm controlling it, or if it's an automatic thing beyond my control...

It's just like projecting angry emotions, but in reverse. That's the best way I can describe. Send it with a good-humored smile instead of a glare. It's hard to explain sorry...

As for 'tuning' to people, I'm not sure what it is, but it certainly is hard to describe...

I can do things like that, sort of. I am an electrokinetic. I can read peoples electric patterns. It is kind of hard to explain but like angry=really fast electoral pattern. I can also rearrange the pattern.

Now that you mention it, I can't project positive emotions either, and there doesn't seem to be use of the negative ones. 😕 It makes me wonder if there is any more to this.

I have discovered that I too am "anti-empath" as Rain puts it. When I am frustrated and angry, apparently any very negative emotion. I hear a loud sound, like a door slamming, and the person I am directing my negative emotion toward will sort of jump back and have a look of surprise or shock on their face. I wonder... Did you just hear that door slam too?...but they didn't. It's sort of amusing to be so angry at a person, then hear that door slam, see them react and then ask them if they heard it. I've been coming to this site for a while now and have never heard anyone mention this. I've been wondering if anyone else has this "opposite" effect. Projecting emotion to someone instead of feeling their's. I don't notice being able to project positive emotions though. Has anyone? I would much rather send out positive energy...

I don't think It's related to empathy. I can do it myself, and I'm not an empath. I am kind of an 'anti-empath' I can project calming emotions etc. But can't sense other peoples. I think it's more like you described: 'tuning' your energy or something like that.

An interesting outlook. I wounder if I would be tempted in such manners. It can all be very confusing...

Yeah I've had some experiences with that. I haven't tried actually learning it, because its too tempting for me to make people confused. I KNOW I would if I had the ability. Think about it before you delve into it because once you develop that it may be too late to turn back.

i wish I had that kind of control. Lately it seems that my abilities come and go. I can fairly well still control the energy within me, but I'm still not strong enough to project it. Or to voluntarily focus my energy on one specific person and be able to read just them.

I'm an Empath as well but I've never done any of this. It's sparked my curiosity, though and I'm thinking about trying it out.

I have, however, been able to change myself in the way you're talking about. I can act like someone fairly easy and I don't have to think about it either. I always just said that I am a good actress but maybe that's not it?
