Sensing Girlfriend's Emotions Practically 24-7


Just to give some background I'm Paul, if you'd like to call me by that. Average high school Catholic school boy.

My story: When I began high school, I met a girl who was out of the ordinary, who told me of strange dreams and how she could 'feel' other people's emotions, including mine, while we talked and even, after we were very closely bonded, when we weren't together. I never heard of any of this before but I kept an open mind. After awhile, I began to develop a sense of different people's emotions much better. She is no longer a large part of my life, however, I am now able to sense every emotion, basically, that my girlfriend feels. Whether I am with her or not, I feel if she gets nervous, anxious, hyper, sad, and I can tell almost all the time when she falls asleep. I can tell if she awakes in the middle of the night or is up late and cannot sleep, because often times, I am doing the same due to her emotions.

I love my girlfriend, I like being able to feel her emotions because I get to share them with her, and if she is upset, I can tell if she is getting happier, or if she is not, I know to help her more and more. However, her emotions are beginning to 'override' mine per se, and when I am happy and she is sad, I lose track of my happiness. I can't be happy and sad at the same time, well... I guess I can be, but it gets to be stressful to say the least. And if I'm sad because of her sadness, how am I of help to her? To anyone?

How can I better control this WITHOUT losing this ability, can I form a sort of on/off switch to help me, or is there just a better way to get my emotions back on the forefront while feeling hers almost distantly but still enough to be readable?

Thanks everybody. Comment here or email me at

When you are close to an Empath, you will also be an empath. Psychic abilities are like viruses that keep spreading.

All I can say is, enhance your ability. And you will find it cool! 😁

Hey, welcome to the life of an empath. Fun.
You've got an unusual thing going on here. Talk to her about it. Use your gift (feels like a curse sometimes) to solve problems, to better observe humans for what they are. You can help people if they'll listen to you.
You're not alone, don't freak.
Keep in touch with your girlfriend. You are closely bonded.

learning to maintaining Equanimity

It is considered one of the four immeasurables in Buddhism:

Love, Compassion, Joy and Equanimity

It is a lot harder than it sounds when you have to deal with others emotions in addition to your own.


The website contains verses the Buddha used to teach his own son about those four emotions.

To get a handle on empath abilities one must learn how to stay centered. In doing so we avoid becoming to hyper-attuned.

Alright, meditation seems like something that I should focus on, as well as just generally learning better how to deal with sadness. I thought I was generally a happy person but apparently I'm not. As far as the shield thought, that might completely block out other emotions so I might go with the meditative approach to kind of 'separate' the two different sets of emotions.

Thank you both, I'm open to expansion on those thoughts and new ideas as well to anyone else reading this.

Meditation is something many empaths like yourself do to keep their emotions their own while still keeping the ability. Once you can 'feel' your own energy, you know what emotions are your own and which one's are someone elses.

Another thing commonly done is imagining a white light surrounding you, almost as if it were a shield. The down side is that this often keeps other's emotions out completly, and you'd have to 'take down the shield' in order to feel their emotions.

Blessed be

my suggestion is learning some purification of emotional energy techniques. Step by step... I have to remind myself to not jump ahead. Anyway I don't know where you are on your spiritual walk but I would study and learn how to deal with sadness. Let it slide through you and into Mother Earth, she can handle it. They will just get burnt up in the inner core. Find happy things to meditate on and magnify that emotion and shoot it back your girlfriend's way. Find the root cause of her sadness because until you address that then neither one of you will trully find happiness. Email me if you want more advice. I've got to clean the house.
