Extremely Advance Empath Or Something Different?


My name is Wade. Now the reason that I'm writing this is because I was wondering if anyone can help me? You see, I'm an empath, and an EXTREMELY strong one at that. You see, ever since I was a little kid I have been able to pick up on other people's emotions. I used to think nothing of it, that it was something that everyone could do, until I grew up a little and noticed this was not the case. This fact made me believe that I was different from other normal people, which I am. But this is not why I am writing. I'm 19 now and I'm about to start my sophomore year in college. Now, before I had moved to school and lived on campus I had had suspicions that I was an empath but I just thought that I was being crazy, until I went to school, but more on that later. Before I had moved to school I would pick up on others emotions, but not only that, my emotions would reflect everyone else's around me (typical empath stuff rite?). But here is where things started to take a turn for the worst... I'm sure that you all know that empathy works through the absorption of energy, and that at the end of the day empaths are tired and must be alone to recharge. Well when you live in a dorm with 100 other people and on a campus of about 5000, there is no place to go to be alone and recharge. Now this is where it gets weird and I need someone's advice. Due to this lack of being able to be alone and recharge, any normal empath would go crazy and be tired, irritable, and depressed all the time, but this isn't what happened to me... I seemed to thrive in it! From constantly absorbing others energy and them absorbing mine my abilities have advanced 10 fold and 10x the speed they normally would. I am able to do things now that no other empath that I have encountered in research over the past 2 years has or can do...

No longer do I adapt my emotions to those around me... I can literally FEEL their emotions as if their energy were hands moving my organs around in my body. I am now conscious of my own energy in my body and can feel it at all times, I can even move it around in my body. You know when you get nervous and you feel like there are butterflies in your stomach? Well I have that feeling all the time due to my own energy concentrated in my solar plexus. It feels like liquid fire coursing through every inch of my body.

But this is not all that I am able to do now. I can feel the dead, and sometimes even see them with my eyes. A friend of mine has hallucinations sometimes at night, and in my dorm are beds were adjacent with only a wall separating them, and whenever she would have hallucinations I would wake up abruptly, sit straight up in bed wide awake, and stare at the wall which she was right behind. These would all be confirmed by her the next day, that my abrupt waking up corresponded, to the minute, exactly when she had her hallucinations. I can sense other peoples spirit guides and I can see them in my head. I can call spirits to me. I can absorb other peoples energy consciously sometimes. This causes me to never be hungry and I go up to a week with out eating. I can now feel auras and then my mind interprets them into colors. When I FEEL a strong enough emotion lights will flicker on and off around me around me (like actual electric lights like lamps and stuff). I have become magnetic to people. They find my energy irresistible and gravitate to me (I have found recently, this summer, that people can't resist me both as a friend and sexually) I have started having predictions that have come true just based on feelings I get out of the blue. This is to the point where I have violent tremors, feel nauseous, sweat, and have a fever. And I know, and I don't know how I know I just do, that something really bad is going to happen, and it always does. I have predicted the deaths of people in my high school, my parents divorce, my best friends attempted suicide, and much more. And now, even weirdest of all, when talking to my best friend recently about my growing empathic abilities, he mentioned how jealous he was of my abilities and how he wished he could experience it, and I just happened to say "I wish that you could feel this way, and just exactly how weird empathy feels". And now, he is starting to feel energy as well, and I can't help but think that I did that to him.

I ask you all this. WHAT THE HELL AM I? I'm an empath I know that, but have I been wrong in thinking that and I am really something else, or have my abilities just evolved at an alarming rate? I need your guy's help, because even other empaths who I thought that I could take solace in because they were like me, I now feel no connection to because my abilities are now different from theirs, or mine have evolved to far beyond theirs. I really need help, sometimes the emotions that I FEEL from other people in my body, physically hurt! If anyone could offer any insight to my problem I would be eternally grateful. Or if anyone has any links to websites with reported cases that are similar to mine, that would be great. I just really need to know that there are others out there like me, who can do the things that I can do.

I know the OP here posted a long time ago, so likely won't read this.

I'm going to take the time to state that many empathic types are like this/ can be like this.

Being around many college kids can drive the energy to that direction.

When I was young, it felt like I had a star burning in my chest, and I could through will power, push my body well beyond physical limits, and I could, without paying much active attention to what was being said, recite word for word what was just said.

It's also a very delicate phase to maintain.
What happened to me was that the first girlfriend Iever had in my life cheated on me, then dumped me when I decided to forgive her.

Obviously, being a empath, I was strongly connected to her.

Obviously, it was not good.
Just imagine having to fight against yourself, especially when you are considered a exceptional person.
Just imagine every win being a loss.

If you can avoid that pitfall, and maintain it, good. IT's a very powerfulstate to be in.

The next bit of warning Ihave is this.
Yes, right now you can go without eating. You can go without sleeping.
You can shrug off just about anything and everything.

BUT your physical body still has physical limits.

When I was 16 years old, I was hospitalized for heart problems.
I went from being stronger, faster, and smarter than everyone else... To having trouble maintaining physical activity for more than 10 minutes.

I pushed my physical body too hard.

Everything has a cost in some way, shape, or form.

Not all costs are paid immediately.

Beyond that, what you decsribed is... I won't say it's common for every empathic person... But it's not super rare either.

In my experience, empaths can gain abilities from other people around them.

When I spend a large amount of time around people, I start talking like them, acting like them, and making choices like them.

Another thing to pay specific attention to is that, even though you are more sensitve to the intake of energy... Everyone, wether they are considered psyhic or not, does the same thing.

Also... If you put energy into rocks or objects... The earth doesn't really take care of it, it just leaks out to people and plants and animals nearby.

The earth deals with the base energies of our particles, not the psuedo energies of our psyche.

It also seems like the best conductor for any divine or heavenly spirit is the air itself. Anything too phsyical is typically too base and too grounding.

In short, be aware that any choice to enhance yourself to the degree in this story, and to stay at that degree, would likely have some sort of heavy toll on your body, and would likely need a large deal of babysitting to keep in the goldilocks zone.

Forgive me but I have not read all of the posts. What I have noticed in the ones I've read is a complete lack of grounding. If we are being who experience the emotions (which come down to energies of others) then it is important to know what to do with those energies. There are a few different ways to distribute it. I will start from the easiest.
The first is to take a stone... From anywhere... Hold it in your hands. Give it all of the excess energy, all of the negative energy, all of your worries. Then cast it about into the earth you found it. The earth will take it and make it anew.
The second is to use a consecrated sword. Metal drives electricty. A consecrated sword is one meant for the elements, and for the gods. It is blessed, and cannot be corrupted. It can act as a perfect pathway between you and the energies of the divine. By putting this in the most northern region you have you can suck those energies right out of you.
The third is to put your feet on the floor. Take those energies and drive them right out.
A lot of how to o this subject leads you to block it out. I am telling you that the way is not to block it out, but to let it flow through. We have an amazing gift. Gift. We can experience the world like no one else can. We see more of it than our peers can imagine it. It puts on the outside. But we are blessed because we see so much. If we block it out we are missing the very thing that makes us special. The trick is not to block it out but to accept, and let it flow through. We feel the flow of life. The ugly, and the beautiful. If it makes us special or handicap that's not really important. It's not important because YOLO (you only live once). And in reality, we live all of it, because of who we are. We live the good and bad. We take the good with the bad. The good wouldn't taste so sweet without the bad. We are blessed, but we are cursed. I am that I am.

I also feel others emotions. It does cause me discomfort and pain, but not to the degree you describe. I have felt as though I absorb other's energy, but it can go either way. Do you happen to be Aries?

i wish I could shed some light on these things for any one. But from what I have leared empathy goes in different directions for different people. I myself have a strong sence of self which seems to help a great deal. I still feel every energy (and I mean ever energy) but I (some how) learned to pin point where it comes from. I feel both the living and the past. But I can also feel the energy that comes from the lights in my house, and tv. I can even feel the path a person take after they are gone. I then learned (more like just happened) to read thoughts from the emotions. So now I don't just feel what they feel but also why they feel that way. From there I was able to communicate with the passed (aka the dead) using this technic. So it looks like everyone evolves differently. Again sorry I couldn't help more if I helped anyonne at all.

Hi Wade my names Brittany and I'm having simular problems. Since I can remember I could sense how people where feeling and if they where bad to be around. When I was in my early teens I began not only sensing peoples emotions but feeling them too and I couldn't tell there emotions from mine its like that persons feelings are mine and mine are just nonexistant. Recently its gotten really bad I work in a mall and its like you said you can literally feel the other person inside like the emotions take life. I'm starting to get physical pain, my vision goes really blurry alot, and I get like a shiver and all my muscles tense. I've known there was a spirit in my house since I moved here I can sense when its in a room and sometimes I see it and it likes to call my name. None of that bugged me but now its like I'm never alone I can sense its emotions or feelings. I have never really tried to do anything about what's happening because my moms an empath too and also has premonitions in dreams like me but everytime Ide mention to her that I wanted to try and figure out what was happening and research it she would throw religion in my face. I'm done listening to her since I'm now 21 and not 11 anymore and I need help understanding what's happening to me and what steps I can take to better understand it and mentally shield myself.
Thank you!

[at] psychicfreak yes I do know a lot about psychic vampires. If you really wanted to find out some really interesting stuff about vampires, if you go on youtube and search real life vampires, there is this really cool episode on there from the tyra banks show. She interviews some great psychic vampires and its better to receive the information about them through the mouth of a psychic vampire!

Hope this helps some.

You have an extremely powerful gift. I'm empathic but my deepest sence is in my intellect. I'm an artist and the mind is my canvas. I'm opposite of you though. Nobody seems to like to be around me. I see things about people, usually the things people don't like others to know. My spirit intimidates others, yours attracts them. I'm like a surgeon whereas you are like a charismatic speaker. If I could do what you do I, could change the world effortlessly.

Do you ever put much thought to purpose and what your ultimate purpose might be? I know what mine is.

Have you ever thought that absorbing other's people energy deliberately to gain for your own is like being a vampire? Types of vampires can do this, and I'd classify you as one. Not like that stupid twilight Robert Pattinson lipstick guy BS. It might be causing harm to others, so be careful.

I'm very interested in your gift, and wonder if you can try helping me. You see I have a hard time understanding my purpose on this earth.I'm very curious and searching for my sprituality. For sum reason I have always felt I Was different from alto of people and that people see something in me that I can't see. Its very frustrating feeling lost and not knowing what I'm suppose to be doing while I'm here on this earth. I have two kids and still with the father. As of right now everything is all on him. I feel really bad that he feels alone and I'm not able to help him. I want to work but I feel like something is always and has always been holding me back. I'm just a lost soul trying to find it self. If you or anyone can help me please do thank you and god bless

thank you guys for all the comments. While I'm at school I do try my best to be alone, I meditate at night, and I try to focus on my empathic totem... But the only problem with these things are that, the majority of the energy I absorb or is absorbed from me (sometimes this is not the case) doesn't make me tired. Its as if the energy that is taken from me, or put into me, somehow alters the energy in my body causing me to physically feel all energy. But this isn't just from people either, it would be from animals, fire, moonlight. I have all of the added benifits of being an empath too, like having an accute sense of knowing, and never being able to be lied to, but it seems that the core attributes of being an empath have somehow morphed inside me.

And to newlite10 thank you for the advice, I know a lot about empaths, and about the crystals that you spoke of (though I don't have one myself) I LOVE swimming, and do it every day for the very same reason that you do.

But thanks to all of you for your comments and I look forword to reading more from you guys. Thanks again.

Hi wade! I am in college and empathic too. I have lived on campus and after a while I eventually got my own apartment. Having my own apartment really helped. But below is a list of things I would do to recharge, as well as when I felt strong tingling sensations (you said they feel like butterflies in your solar plexus, I feel that in my chest and throat): 1) I mentally surround myself in a translucent bubble so I feel less immersed in other people, 2) I carry a crystal in my pocket (this helped a lot, I went to a metaphysical store and asked for help on how to pick one for my empath problem... She told me to hold all the crystals in the store and if it was right for me I would know because it would select me. I picked up a white crystal and my whole body became hot and tingly... I bought that one and I am not nearly as drained), 3) I swim at the rec cen because being submerged in water energizes me, 4) when I study I always find a secluded spot at the library, 5) I meditate before I go to bed and do a mental exercise where I surround my bed with a tent and then make it disappear, and 6) whenever it rains (which is super rare in CA) I always bike or walk in the rain (rain energizes me too). I hope some of these help, I tried many different meditations and advice I found online and eventually found these work the best for me so far... But you will have to experiment with what things work the best for you. You can do it! *_*

Unlike your friend who says he wants your empathis ability, I don't. 😐 I don't think I'd be able to handle feeling others' emotions. Anyway, I know you can't find a place to recharge, but what I reccomend is simply taking all the chances you can get. I think denisee's theory is right, and that you should take any chances you get to be alone, even just for a bit. Good luck. 😢

I just have to say WOW, that's some gift you got there. As an empath myself I can relate. I'm not quite sure what's happening to you. But like you said it seems to be that your ability as an empath is advancing at a very alarming rate due to the fact that you don't have the option of reloading and guarding yourself.

It seems to me that seeing since you said that instead of reloading energy at the end of the day you thrive in it, which can be dangerous for some. I think what is happening to you is that you are being able to not reload because you feel other energies and are able to feed on it and absorb it like your own. Hence the empath ability advancing alarmingly fast.

Now I don't know you personally but it seems to me from what you desrcibed that it is very important that you try and find someplace if only for 5 minute to quiet the mind. So that this advancement of your ability don't end up harming you.

And I know it's very hard when you live on campus, but it can be even more harmful if you don't try and guard yourself. By not guarding yourself you could be exposing yourself to loads of negative energy and draining energy.

I don't really know if you are a different type of empath, but I have never heard of anything like this, at least not all at the same time. But one thing I am sure of is that you are experiencing other psychic abilities that may have been dormant until now. But I can't stress enough how important it is for you to gaurd yourself especially as an empath.

But if you are feeling like you can't handle this advancement know that you were not given these gifts if they did not think you could handle it. Ask your spirit guides for help.

I myself have similar qualities like you with my empath gift, and I feel the emotions to stronger than regular empaths. If the emotion/energy is strong enough I feel
Literally everything that, that person or persons are feeling and doing. I can feed of others energies too like yourself.

I have experinced all the "signs" you are discribing to but not all at once. I think you should talk to a medium/psychic about this maybe they can help you. There are a lot of paranormal research groups in pennsylvania if you need further help.

I think there maybe a big possiblity that you may be an empathic medium.

I hope you find this helpful
