New, Questioning Empath?


So, I'm very very new to all of this - well, at least I believe I am. I've felt this way for at the least one year now, but I guess I should explain my story a bit first.

I am now sixteen years old, but at the time I was fifteen, maybe fourteen. I have a friend who I communicate only via text of some sort, weather it be texting, IM, e-mail, et cetra. I had always been interested in the paranormal such as far as powers go so I decided to go look up some information, but there seems to be very little out there - or, well, I just don't know where to look.

I really can sense peoples emotions if I know them well enough. Well, not only if I know them well enough, but sometimes somebody who I know will just sit down and I can tell - not only by physical expression, but by pure sense how they are feeling. This, I found to be, is empathy - but as far as I know, everybody has a bit of empathy in them.

Recently I've been rather enthralled, shall we say, with peace and understanding within myself - I meditate and try to 'shield' myself with white light. But there's so many questions that I have about my empathy. I can sense how people are feeling merely through text such as IM, though I'm a very visual person. I can easily get into somebody else's perspective and I have been trying really hard to meditate and clear myself of negative energies.

So, I guess what I'm really getting at is - could someone just explain to me what's really going on? And, most of all, how I can strengthen my... Ability. I can't see or hear spirits, read aura's, help others, or do anything else, simply sense emotions and judge people based on what my gut tells me. Would you help me, and explain just how I can start making myself stronger? Any practices or websites you go to to learn? Or could anybody just swap e-mails with me so that we could exchange story's and learn off each other?

Thank you so much for your time.

Merry meet, merry part.

When you're sick or have the flu, I was told by other individuals, that your abilities are weakened because you're not able to use your abilities to their full strength. Just like sickness makes you tired, it takes away some of the energy you need to use your abilities.

The sections in here go over "how to develop empathic skills," "are you an empath?" and "How to Shield Empathic Energy." ""One of the things to record is coincidences that you notice. There is actually no such thing as a coincidence according to empaths and everything happens for a reason."" There's always a reason you're feeling the way you are, if you're picking up others emotions, or your own. You should learn to distinguish the two from one another, that's vital.



Http:// "There is an important point I want to make in this regard. If you are to truly gain control of your empathy, it is necessary to be aware of and work on healing your own psychological issues."That's said in the website above. I saw it mentioned below, and I find it the most important thing about becoming a stronger empath. You must be psychologically healthy because when you take on the emotions of others' around you, that puts a great strain on your personal emotions. It's not just your own feelings, its everyone else's and that something you should learn to control. Shielding I've heard can help.

I wish you luck understanding your abilities. In terms of fine tuning your abilities, or making them stronger, definitely research them and what you could potentially do. To be able to use any psychic ability its important that you learn a lot about it-- even if you just google empathy, a ton comes up. Go to the library, or a book store-- they have a lot as well.
Good luck.

I am a new and questioning empath as well. I have a friend who is an empath and a spirit sensor as well... I am a empath and I can also see the past through old items... I used it on a hymnal. I would like more help with fine tuning my abilities but I don't know where to go. If anyone can help me please do!

Switt- The white light method is very useful. If you detect any negative emotions, continue to mentally surround yourself with the white light, and create a sort of "bubble", using the "I am rubber, you are glue" saying. This advice was given to me by a fellow empath, and it has proven to be helpful, especially in places such as Walmart, where negative emotions tend to be pretty out of hand (Who likes Walmart, really?). 😆

Also, as WhiteBuffalo said, be in control of your emotions. If you encounter a strong negative emotion, and you're not prepared, it could make you feel pretty out of whack. I call it a "mental pms", because emotions can change suddenly.

Being an empath, on a positive note, is really a gift. It can save you from awkward emotional situations, help you better understand others, and its easier to brighten up the mood of a whole group, as well as to assess the mood, to make sure everyone is happy and satisfied.

Hope this is helpful info for you, or reassuring to know multiple people are empaths and can help you if you need it. 😊 ❤

My abilites expanded after somebody opened my chakras... I realised that I can contact nearly everybody in one way, exept if I'm sick have flu or something like this... (this is something, I don't understand why... What do you think about that?) But usually I don't know who am I, I pick up the first persons emotion who I meet first... It's sometimes so hard... I was thinking about maybe if would be stronger, I would be able to know who I feel and who am I...

I find both of these sites to be highly informative. The FIRST one simply deals with Empathy. Just the everyday, ordinary garden variety. The second brings in the Spiritual sense.
Emotion control is very important. YOU have to be in control, before you can "control" what emotions come through TO you.
So...Are you able to touch the monitor screen and feel?
Thank you.

I started out as an Empath, and then went on to being a physical Empath myself.:) The first thing to do is to control your emotions. You need to be able to tell your own feelings from others. Create shields to not get overwhelmed with others emotions. A lot of new Empaths go through a phase of basically having too many emotions that they can't control it, and feel overwhelmed. You need to be able to control that, and be able to make connections with the ones you want, not just anyone you see.
