Real Psychic Experiences

I Am A Lost Empath


So here it goes. I don't really know what I am. As a kid I felt different then in the 5th grade signs started showing. I had visions like for example I had dreams that came true and a vision during the day made me stand up in the middle of my 6th grade class and start walking towards the door. The bell rang and there was a fire in the cafeteria. I see people in dreams I don't know about, but end up meeting later on. I can feel people's emotions and know when they are lying to me. I think I also read animals. Maybe I am just going crazy or these are coincidences.

Now I am in high school and so very lost sometimes I think that I get someones emotions for a little while I dislike being in crowds and prefer having a small group of friends. I found a psychic friend, but he won't help and I don't understand why. I feel he is hiding something from me. I really need help I feel so very lost I fear I have gone into a depression I am 14 and all these occurrences have not ended. I always try to ignore the visions now and dreams ignoring them does not help at all and all the emotions run through me music does not block them out either. I need to learn reiki maybe it will help anyone know how to practice it? I have so much more to talk about, but I will end it here.

Thank you for reading.

I don't know what to classify myself as, how to describe myself, what to say about who I am, and what I can or can not do. However, some of your history sounds and feels similar to my own.
Your friend likely can not help you. Each person recieves and translates information and energy in their own way.
Their were two people that tried to make me understand energy the way they do. Both drove me crazy, because either I tried to do it their way, or I was too weak.
A third person, very experienced, helped me by actually telling me what she understood to be the basics, but she told me the names of some very powerful people. One focused on me and pushed me into a shadow realm briefly, just to see what I would do.
The whole being around people making you uncomfortable... As I understand it, most people don't understand energy, or what their thoughts do to others around them. Personally, I can't tell the difference between "good" or "evil" BUT I can tell a massive difference between selfish and non-selfish.
As I understand it, most people are selfish. Selfish drains those around them. A person wanting your money is selfish. A lover wanting your attention is selfish.
Non-selfish is rare. However, in my opinion, it feels VASTLY different. Instead of a drain, I feel a rejuvenation.
The only way I was able to cope... Note, I say cope, not overcome... Was to give up my own sense of self to a vast degree.
For me, that was focusing more on God existing, and blind faith. It's very important to note the blind part of the faith. Basically, I have to be completely non-judgemental and believe every action happens for the greater good of all existence. The ony way for me to focus my energy and thoguhts as such is to believe and put blind faith in God.
In any case, tht's my two-cents, I sincerely hope this helps you.

Yes I know how that feels. I have that with other psychic abitilies that are causing me trouble I know you feel overwhelmed in crowds and you often want to scream when you are in them. I know how that feels too I have tried to tell my parents but they just think I am crazy. I see a battle going to happen and I tried warning them as well but they won't listen. I know what you are going through so what I recommend is putting up a shield. Empaths usually use it from their heart or the back of their head or that was just me. Some visions might also be helpful so let some in. Hope I helped a little bit or made you feel better in anyway. Just wanted to share some of my experience to know you and your friend aren't alone.

I would suggest meditating and try some different stones like: black tourmaline- psychic protection or moonstone- soothing to wear after emotional upsets.

Hope it helps

I have recently over the last few months have had my empath abilities come back. I guess I was just ready on my path in life. I agree with Iunderstand that you shouldn't ask for all the answers at once. I just try to read as much as I can and come on here for answers.

I don't feel alone anymore because so many of us on here have similar stories. We aren't crazy just have special gifts. I agree with Anne don't tell that many people about what is happening because they will think you are nuts! You don't want to be labeled.

Meditation helps me and I find it makes my empath skills more clear. Seek the truth and remain positive. Like Iundestand I write poetry and like music. Maybe that is an empath skill?

I wish you the best on your path in life. Shield yourself with the white light of God when you are scared.

Your inability to connect answers to questions is caused by an inability to be able to percive the answers that have been in front of you the whole time. Feeling lost and incomplete is a very common feeling in our society today. Water water everywhere but none that we can drink. There are people all around us nearly every moment of the day but why don't we ever try to connect to them? Fear and pride are why we dont. Afraid of rejection, afraid that if we do find what we want we will lose it or it will be stolen from us... Again. These are the ways fear keeps us boxed up in our negative thought. Pride affects us differently. Its pride that tells us we are different from everyone else around us and that nobody else understands us. It is also pride that causes us to believe other people are to fat or too skinny to be our friend or talk to us. You are asking way to many questions right now Nimzaj. You really focus on the things that are before you currently, school, family, friends, yourself. The Bible says that as wisdom increases so does sorrow and regardless or weather or not you believe in the Bible this statement is true, I know from personal experience that thins is true. I'm 23 and iv spent way to much energy, time, and emotion trying to figure everything out. Please believe me when I say that its better to let things reveal themselves to you rather than trying to force things. When you force things, often times you are overloaded with what you find. Flowers take time to bloom, youd never force a rose to open would you? You would destroy it and it would look ugly. You are very young, you don't even have a job yet. Find things that make you happy. Search for good people to surround yourself with that encourage you and help you think of your goals. Stay away from people that make you think or your failures, also stay away from people that try to force their energy on you weather it be in the form of someone that wants to have sex with you or even people that seem to mean well with their advice but only want you to be like them and believe what they believe. For years iv searched for people that could help me out with questions iv had about things, iv been to many churches, talked to many psychics, atheists, budists, homeless crakeheads... All kinds of people and none of them have ever done a single thing to help me out (with the exception of maybe 2 Christians). Eventualy I always find the answers iv been looking for but many times I have wished that I would have never asked the question. People say ignorance is bliss, I say that a load of crap. Inocence is bliss, stay inocent guard your inocence with every and never let anyone take it from your. I'm 23 and iv seen ALOT. I'm not going to tell abunch of personal stories to try and get you to believe me or listen to me. You say you are lost, iv been 14 once and iv done a whole bunch of reading and have experienced many things that reading will never teach you. Heres the best advice that I can give, Get to know who Jesus Christ is (this will take a long time). Find something you love that connects you to this world and that connects your whole being together. I sing, make music, write poems, and love spending time with my friends (good friends that I know respect me and that I can truly say I trust).

Empathy is a powerful ability, it's very strong and can often be scary at first. My friend who is an empath gets sick if there's too many different feelings about her. (She actually went home a few days ago because she felt really sick) and me, I'm not as powerful as her, I tend to get a migraine.
Don't be scared it's normal to feel a bit over whelmed.
Luck and Good Fortune

Most people will tell you that you are crazy, so be cautious of who you tell. I'm 13, and told a few friends (1 told me I was full of bull, another dosen't completly believe me) Second, don't block this, or it will build up and explode out of you. Embrace it. Make it a part of who you are.

As for your physic friend, try and do some aura training and see if you can get a color on him. It might help you find out his real personality. Maybe he's not the person you think he is.

I can sorta... Sense animals too. I can get their emotions, and for my own dogs, I can sometimes hear their thoughts. I can also tell if people lie too me. I don't know why this is, but you are NOT insane. Feel free to talk to me at anytime.

Hope this helps!

Dont worry when I first started out as an empath I was pretty freaked out about it. At first I thought they were coincidences but when I found that it was much stronger than that and I chose to embrace it. Now I can see "visions" of the futre sometimes and I am trying to help people. Try meditating it helps trust me all I wanted was it to go away at first. But then I learnt how to control it. Hope this helps

Running from who you are is never a good thing. I know its hard to get used to these gifts, but many people on this website have gone through times similar to yours. I suggest that you don't learn Reiki until you have a grip on who you are in the present. Try energy shifting meditation, I kind of taught myself it when peoples emotions would over run me. Drop me an email if you need help with it. Be Strong

Everything Anne told you is so very true as it is right now you are no longer a lost empath anymore. Think of it as a new beginning a place to come too for help soon the weight will lift off your shoulders as you begin to understand how your abilities work.

Anyone with any kind of sensitivity to them (not to mention psychic ability) is going to feel out of place in a society that balks and laughs at such things. But you're still luckier than a lot of us older people because in our day, we not only didn't have an internet that you now get to enjoy, post stories and share, but there weren't even that many books (and no tv shows out of "jokes"). So while you may feel isolated amongst your peers, you still have a vast resource and lots of web sites and forums you can tap into.

Speaking of alone, know that it's the same for all of us. You think I can go to my work and chit chat about my psychic visions, remote viewing missing people and all that other stuff? They would roll their eyes and start rumors of what a nut job I am. The moral is that you have to find your worth and credibility from within, not through validation through your peers. I KNOW I'm okay! I know what I see is real because it's confirmed every day of my life. Know this too for you!

Instead of running from your visions, why not make them more clear, teach down the road, start your own webpage and forum? Don't be a victim. You're the creator of your own reality so start creating! You have all of us here to help support you and listen to you. Trust me, things could be worse! If I can make do coming out of the equivalent of a dark age of technology, then you can do even better with all this global access.

Your friend may not be receptive to sharing with you because he's not as good as he's letting on.

Have a nice day.
