Am I Empathic Or Is This Something Else?


I don't know what I am. I can sense the feelings of other people who are around me, or it seems like I can. My mother, I can feel her emotions and pain she's in. She suffers from headaches and migraines and most of the time when she gets a headache soon enough I get one not too long after. The weird part of it though is when I get the headache my mother had, hers goes away less than thirty minutes after. And when my mothers depressed, I start to sense her feelings, and eventually I become depressed, and again as soon as I start feeling that way my mother perks up and is suddenly very happy and well again. It happens with my friends as well, if they say they feel sick at all I start feeling sick, and they start feeling better. I don't know if that means I could be an empath or not? It's irritating though, I hate feeling sick the second someone mentions it, or after I sense their feelings or pain cause then I'm miserable and they're jumping off walls. I mean I'm happy they're feeling better I just wish I could find someway to change the final outcome so it doesn't seem like their unhappiness or sicknesses fall onto me.

I also see visions every once in a while. When I was young I told a 10 minute story off the top of my head about our neighbors moving to Florida after they saw a house on vacation, and as soon as they came back from vacation they told my parents they were moving for the reasons I'd talked about. Lately I'll get a vision maybe once a month, and they end up being short interpretive sentences like "prepare yourself for something," and eventually I'll get the month or number of weeks until the 'something' will happen. Sometimes I can sense what I'm supposed to 'prepare myself' for like often its death when I hear it, and I'll sense my cat's death, or a grandmother but its never as specific as "Aunt May is going to die."

Another vision I often 'hear/see' is sickness. I knew someone was going to be in the hospital a year ago. I kept thinking about hospitals and what people would be sick with. I had pneumonia (undiagnosed--had it for almost a year) at the time so I was convinced I'd be the one going to the hospital but eventually my sister got pneumonia and ended up in the hospital for it in a week. When I 'hear/see' visions of sickness I always think the sickness is going to ail me, but it ends up being about someone else.

I can never pinpoint specifics with the visions I hear but I wish I could so I didn't sit clueless unable to help.

Lyra, I totally understand I feel sick all the time and doctors have written me off as a hypochondriac but I know it's not my imagination and my guests tell me all the time. Actually I often wonder if most of them have been in the medical field. They're always sending me somewhere to get either a checkup or health food store for supplements. I'm sure I am an empath as well and just can't help it.

Hi Lyra, my suggestion if you come back and read this is to begin by meditating and doing some research on sheilding. Find something that works for you. There is a lot on this site. I've posted some suggestions for empaths on my stories, but I'm not sure if they make any sense to anyone but me and my friends. I've been blessed with people who are willing to listen and help me learn though out my life. I'm hoping I'll find some more on this website. Feel free to contact me via email or IM or post your questions on my story links. I probably won't check this page, but I wish you the best in your journey.:)

you compleatly and totally are an empath. As I am aswell. Controling the epath abilities are very simple all you have to do is once you start feeling sick, headachish etc., think of a brick wall or a bubble or a box that contains all the emotions of you inside. And know you are inside the box now the sickness or whatever you are feeling from the other person, picture shoving it out of the wall or whatever your inside and close it up with just your feelings inside. If it doesn't go away you may actually just be feeling the same way for some reason. Good luck to you

I appreciate you commenting. I guess part of my problem is I'm not really sure how to practice with them. How do you practice with premonitions or being an empath? I don't have many friends who would listen or accept even the idea of this.

Well you are an empath. And have precognitions and premonitions. If you want to control your abilities you have to use them. Practise with them, think about them etc.

Wish you good luck.
