Empath Going Crazy


I'm an emotional wreck. I have traits of an empath, I always seem to know how someone is feeling and most of the time, I take on the mood of that person. My friends label me as "overly-sensitive". I have been crying for no reason for the past few weeks. Its as if I am going through depression, but deep down within, I know I am not. But if it isn't depression, what is it?

When I was younger, I used to hear a voice. It was a voice of a guy. I suspect it was a spirit because no one else could hear him. He told me the right answers to some questions and on one occasion, he took control of my body to make me walk. The voice made me feel protected. But as I grew older, I could not hear him anymore. I used to frequently hear voices calling my name but not anymore.

I have had experiences of being hugged in my sleep and being pinned down in my sleep. During these episodes, I totally freak out. Sometimes, I can sense when a spirit is near. It sends shivers down my spine and gives me goosebumps and there is something within me that reacts to it.

Also, I can 'hear' people's thoughts and I can tell when someone is lying to me. I have frequent migraines and experience dizziness. I have a keen interest in the paranormal. I don't know what's wrong with me but my friends can't understand. They are on the verge of giving up on me because they cannot take the sight of my tears. I don't know what I can do. Am I crazy?):

Please, I need advice.

PS: I have also heard of Spirit guides but I have no idea how to contact mine. I have felt them trying to contact me and acknowledge me but the feelings are faint.

Confusedempath91 Does everyone have spirit guides? Even non psychics? There have been three incidents involving "feelings" and Then finding out I'm right, and three ghost sightings, so does this mean I'm psychic? I can also feel presences in rooms that I'm in, and I am VERY emotional. But I can't predict things perfectly right all the time, but I can remember nearly all of my dreams perfectly. I can also kind of go into trances where I'm thinking about something random, and then suddenly I feel like I'm no longer my self, just an empty person, and I know what's going on around me, but I feel like my soul is hidden really deep down inside me, as deep as it can go, and it's no longer controlling my exterior, except my movement and breathing. It's hard to explain.

im an empath too. That voice that you would here is your spirit guide. Everyone has one, and they are typically family members of yours that had died before you were born. I can talk to mine and sense other peoples too. If you concentrate hard enough you will be able to feel that person around you at all times.

i my self am an Empath and a good way to block out feeling every one else's emotions and taking them in as your own is meditation and learning to block them out also stopping take a few breaths in through the nose and out of the mouth with your eyes close and picturing a block on it helps too if there's anything else I can do to help let me know

i too been through that. At first I used to get really tired easy and I use to get angry when people were lying to me cause I could read them like a book. Also use to get attacked by spirits when I was sleeping and wake up with large bruises all over my body.

I was taught to learn how to meditate in the mornings and put protection up when going outside so you don't collect negative stuff off people like there bad emotions and the crap there carrying. Just sit in a place were you are most relaxed in. Close your eyes at first imagine a big bright white light surrounding you. After you do that let your mind run wild for about 10-15 minutes at first and once a week do a long meditation for 30 minutes or so.

Meditating also improves your reception to the spirit world it won't happen in an instant but over a few days contact with spirit guides gets better. There's nothing wrong with you. If you meditate most of the time you will also discover you will have the ability to heal people mentally and there illness. You are already doing it now but you at beginners stage of healing.

At this stage your kind of like a magnet people walk past you down a street or your in a room full of people your attracting all the emotional crap off them or if someone has a sore right hand at that instant your right hand might have mild pain. Late in the day you be very very tired or emotional drained.

I am going through the exact same thing and I would greatly appreciate help if anyone is willing. I feel the weight of the world and I can always sense when something is wrong or great. So if there is anyone willing to help me out or point me in the right direction that would be so helpful

I've been going through almost the exact same thing. I know how people are 'truly' feeling without them saying it. When I recognize & verify how someone is truly feeling I take on their mood too and in return their mood lightens up if they're feeling down. And another part of it is if my friend or mother gets a headache I get a headache within 30 minutes and as soon as I get a headache theirs start to go away.

I also used to hear a voice when I was younger of this man who would help me figure out the answers to questions and help me recognize things I was doing wrong or could improve. Another similarity between your story and things I've experienced with-- not as much this specific spirit, but other spirits who helped me in the ways he had, they could take control of my body. I hadn't thought much of it when I was young, the spirits were definitely protective and seemed like friends. When I grew older the spirits seemed to fade out and as of now I haven't felt their presence, or heard their voices.

Does the spirit that contacted you when you were young feel like it could've been a spirit guide?

Contacting your spirit guides seems a lot more difficult than people make it out to be. One thing is you have to truly be open to your spirit guides' presence. You could be thinking you're more open to their presence than you really are. If you doubt yourself, or your sanity you might be dismissing your spirit guides as false. Note, I'm just throwing out ideas. What have you tried previously?

For me, Its a hard fight trying to verify any of what happens with the paranormal or believing it completely. I've never been able to distinguish what's 100% true verses something I make up in my imagination, that's what always eats at me.
I wish you luck.
