Empath? Followed?


Alright, I kind of have two separate questions here

My first question is I'm wondering if I'm an empath. I can "feel" the emotions of people when I am around them. It's much stronger for people that I'm close to such as family and friends. I can feel strangers emotions too when I really focus in on them. I get an overwhelming feeling every time I am in a crowd. My emotions will randomly go from happy to sad to upset and so on.

An example of an experience I had is what happened last week. I was on vacation in North Carolina all week and I was with 15 other people. It was supposed to be a relaxing time, but the whole entire week I felt overwhelmed and exhausted. There was one night where we were all playing a bored game and I had to leave the room because I felt so overwhelmed. I spent most of the vacation outside on the hammock because I just wanted to get away from everyone and I felt so much better when I was outside, but right when I went inside with all the people I got the same feelings again. Do you think I am an empath?

My second question is I'm wondering if I'm being followed? I know it sorta sounds like a paranoid question, but a lot of times when I'm alone in my house I'll have an overwhelming feeling that I'm being watched. I've had many strange things happen such as the door to my room being knocked on and no one being there, waking up to find something walking in or outside of my room, and waking up to find my door half open when I ALWAYS close and lock it before I go to sleep. Also, the other night I woke up and felt/heard something breathing beside me. I got really freaked out and went to sleep upstairs.

Whatever it may be the weird thing is that I don't feel harmed or threatened by it. I feel like if it wanted to hurt me it would have done it by now. Those are just my thoughts though. I could be wrong.

im going through the same thing right now, and am utterly overwhelmed by people's feelings. I can only be around one or two people at a time, which has put me into isolation. My family has always believed something follows us too... I hope you've figured out how to handle both issues!

I can't tell you how glad I am that I got to read your posting. I have also had the same occurrences with being able to feel others emotions. Lately it has gone to an entirely different level and its been overwhelming for me. I wish I could turn it off. I am the same way as you are when I am in crowds etc. Thank you for posting this. It too has helped me feel like I'm not the only one out there that is feeling like this.

Nope. I'm just relating it to my experience, it's up to you to say so.

I am positive that your an empathic person. Well that gift is a bit troublesome if you won't learn how to control it and use it wisely.

I can't find reason why some spirit or entities tries to follow empathic people and I don't know about the mediums.

I am an empath too and I've followed by some sort of spirit, I guess it is not a demon since people says it demons don't talk.

One more thing this is awkward but psychic vampires too can feel emotions of others. It is not a phenomena for me since I am one of them, I guess in this way we can select which emotion or which energy we should take in. Psychic vampires I guess are natural born empaths.

Good luck in nurturing your skills. There are tons of wonderful experiences you can have for being an emapth.

Blessed Be

I read the 'something following me' part, and I've got to say I am definately relieved. The breathing in your ear, seeing things walk in and out of your room... Those are all things that happen to me too. And it's nice to know I'm not alone. I don't really think its trying to hurt me either... But its scary anyways. I've found that if I can calm myself down, things like that seem almost completely normal, like I can just cope with them now. And I think you are an empath. Can you feel feelings attached to some objects as well? Like something that had a previous owner or something. If you meditate you may find it easier to deal with people, cause having so many emotions swirling around can make you kind of dizzy 😉. And if it still bothers you, try this before you leave the room- picture a sort of bubble around you. It may help.

Let me know if you need something, I think we might be able to help each other with this being followed thing.

The answer is easy. It's following only you because you are special. You are meant for something more than them. Your destiny is different.

And this thing could want from you different things. To know what, I would have to know more about it... Hmm, if you want, email me, then we can talk about it and see what it wants 😉.

Thank you so much! I really appriciate it.

Also, just wondering, do you have any idea why whatever is following me is doing it to ME? It doesn't do it to anyone else in the house. Only me.

Well here lots of people are for help and to find friends. Friends who also have abilities, and believe in yours.

So if you stay long enough here you will find someone. But it would be better if you didn't speak about it with your parents. They just don't believe you. Lots of people doesn't believe in this. But here they does, so good luck.

thank you both!
It actually is a lot of help to find out that I'm not just being crazy or paranoid about this. Also, it's nice to have someone to talk to about it. When I try to bring up this up to my parents they usually laugh about it and think I'm just paranoid
I can't really talk to them about my abilities either. Like last week... I was sitting on the beach and I got a really weird feeling and just randomly started thinking about my uncle. Then when I got back to the beach house I had a text from my mom saying that my uncle (who was a few states away) just broke his neck riding a wave)
I later tried to tell my mom what happenend and she just kind of laughed about it and shrugged it off

Yes I think you are an empath.

It could be a spirit or something else... But you are definetely followed.

Watch out.

You are an empath, use your gift wisely and I hope for you to one day be able to control it! And yes you are being followed, but by the looks of it this is just a gentle spirit who would not cause harm to you. I'm sorry if I can't help with anything else!
