Empathy Or No?

 

I'm 13 years old, confused, overwhelmed and curious to say the least. Just to be honest I don't exactly know how to explain this in words, but I'll do my best.

OK, so today at school I was the first in the classroom. So to waste time I started to read, the bell rung and my class came in and sat down. I put away my book came and sat back up and listened to my teacher talk. Well I easily get distracted in this class so my mind started to wander. But all of a sudden I was filled to the brim with emotions I certainly cannot be mistaken were NOT mine. First I was depressed then I was hyper neither of which I was feeling. Then after these invading emotions passed I felt overwhelmed with different emotions, my head hurt like it was going to explode but not like EXPLODE just like it was maybe going to burst? I also felt a bit nauseous.

This has been frequently happening since last year. I'm not scared but I'm not totally OK with this. It does come in handy when people who hate me or dislike me with the very passion of their beings act like they like me. I don't like hanging around with people that fake about friendship. But when I have emotions that are definitely not mine... What am I supposed to do?

People say they wish they could feel others emotions I can honestly say if this what I'm feeling constantly is feeling others emotions I wouldn't go as far as to say I WISH for it. Dealing with it yeah, fine I'm stuck with this gift of mine for life I won't complain but I just want them to know that its not easy.

My moms an open minded person about things like this. Seeing as she's kind of psychic and Empathy... Yeah. But I haven't told her to the extent of how much this affects me. Sometimes I just wish I could tell her without feeling awkward but if its not empathy...?

I would just like to know what you guys think... Is it Empathy or no? Who knows it might just be an illness that has been going on 2 years now. Thanks for reading it's much appreciated:)

Sooo, here's a question for you guys. I've been having dreams and this one dream felt so real, and when I woke up I just KNEW it COULD happen in four years. Is it a prophetic dream or is it just... A dream?

When I feel other's emotions I've noticed that when focusing on their emotions I see different colors. Their rarely very bright, their more of the lighter variety. Does anybody else notice this?

Hi Isis:

Sorry for the late reply.

1st I would play out the scenario of telling your friend your an empath in my head, would she be open to the idea? Would she call you crazy? Could you possibly lose her friendship?

I've told all my close friends some of my experiences. In college we would have massage and energy workshops in the middle of our parties. I tend to gather a group of people around me that protect me of the other influences of college parties. My husband says I'm sheltered and I didn't realize what he meant for a while until I went to a few parties without my close friends and saw what they were steering me away from. I have to admit, I'm somewhat naive about the darker side of this world. I spend most of my time gathering light energy and trying to heal and cheer up people, I don't acknowledge the darkness around me.

Don't worry about your shields when you are sick and tired. Your bodies natural defense kick in. For example most people don't meditate and try and control their breathing. However they still live because their body is set up that way.

When you are sick, your body naturally blocks your charkas so that you don't see or take in more energy from the world around you (which can make you sick because most people are not emiting pure light energy)

To make myself feel better, since I'm an empath and I tend to absorb the emotions and spiritual energy around me, I have to meditate more or take a "nap" and astral project into my inner sanctuary and clean house. Disengage the negative strands and throw them in the furnace until they are pure white and send them back to the person who I asborbed it from. Sometimes the person's guardian will come and talk to me while this is happening and ask I tell their charge a message, or that they are crying and nned a shoulder. So I call the person and just listen.

Anyway, hope that helps. If you need my attention, I suggest posting on my page/story

That's what it is in a nutshell, yes. Meditating shortly before you usually get tired until all this becomes second nature helps greatly. Focus is key.

I'm just seeing if I get this so when your exhausted up to some extent you can learn to switch your type of thinking sort of thing to your subconcience more and more so your able to function even thought you feel like you could drop to the floor at any minute? I feel like I get it but just to verify...

I'm sorry for the double post, but I need to correct something that could cause others to interpret something I posted wrong.

Isis And Shinigami0, when you're tired, up[ to a certain extent, you can adapt your mind to switch the processing of information to your sub conscious more and more as you get more and more tired.

Isis And Shinigami0, when you're tired, up[ to a certain extent, you can adapt your mind to switch the processing of information to your sub conscious more and more and you get more and more tired. If I stay up more than 20 hours, that process it started for me. After about 30 hours, I don't even need to focus to scan, it just comes. That part, is a conjuction of the mental switch, and my energy systems being allowed to free flow more. I normally keep my energy systems in a state of natural circulation until I get to the mental stage to switch without forcing it. I then take those restraints off, and free flow my energy. The free flow helps energy work a lot faster, with a lot less conscious focus, but if you don't couple it with the mental switch, you just end up with the normal clogs and other malfunctions in your energy systems. This is somethign that takes time to make this something that happens automatically after you've been awake a certain amount of time.

Hi Isis!
Yes, generally when you're exhausted or sick, its hard to muster the energy to put up a shield. Or for that matter, when you're sick or exhausted, you tend to focus more on that, then on shields, lol.
Personally, when I'm really tired, its easier for things such as the emotions of others to effect me, cause I personally don't have shields on my priority list at those times.

And don't worry about asking a stupid question. There are no stupid questions, when you're trying to figure things out and gain knowledge. 😊

Au revior. 😊 ❤

This might sound like a stupid question but if your appsalutly positivly exausted would that affect your shields? I was SO tired last week, I didn't even want to get up I just wanted to sleep and when I went to school I felt SO sick because I couldn't keep my shields up.

Yeah I know schools important, I'm a kid of course if I have a distraction from listening to teachers I'm going to use it. But I understand what your saying and I've already done research of what were learining about, plus I don't want to look stupid when the teacher calls on me so I refrain from practicing a total of the time. Question: If you had a close friend and she wonders how you know so much about her and how you KNOW exactly how she feels would you tell her that youre an empath?

I've watched some of my students zone out like that. I normally call their name and snap them out of the trance. Its ok to practice your shields if you know the subject matter and your grades are ok, but you should pay attention and learn as much about this reality and this world as possible. I would suggest that you reeearch into human psychology or the way humans think and perhaps the biology of the human brain and nervous system. With your abilities to read thoughts and "see" or "feel" things others can't you can make an excellent counselor or make breakthroughs in those already accepted fields of science by intergrating the spiritual/psychic aspect of the world into the field.

May the Peace of the Lord be with you.

Once again thank you. I'v been doing that but once in a while I kindof oh I don't know get bored with hearing my teachers drone on and on and on so I work on my techneques. Putting mental shield up, and down and I'll leave the shield down for a while and see how long it takes for me to be bombarded with emotions and stuff. So I was doing this and I have been doing this for the last oh id say maybe three days? When I started to notice that I'm starting to get like sentences in the back of my mind like peoples thoughts or just stuff like that and mental pictures. Its kind of cool I guess if you can get past the negative migrain but I just thought I should tell you guys. Oh and the senteces will be stuff that people will say about a minute later. It left me tired and wanting to go to sleep but it was so... Weird.

Isis-Kehpre,
Sorry I did not get back sooner...

I'm glad these things worked for you. Now it's a matter of 'setting them up' and 'holding them in place' in your 'minds eye'. You have to visuialize your shiled surounding you where ever you go. This is a bit more challenging than being able to 'bring it up' when meditating. It takes some getting used to... But the more you do it, the easier it becomes until it is 'second nature', once that happens you will be able to 'open your shiled' when you want to.

Thank you for the up-date, Again I'm sorry I didn't see this until after the party, In hope everything went well. Please feel free to ask any ohter questions you may have.

Respectfully,

Rook

Thanks AnandaHya and RookDygin! It really worked, I made herbal tea and lit a candle, meditated and did the crystal ball thing sort of. I'm going to a party tonight, what do you guys suggest to just keep others emotions away. I really want to enjoy my friends b-day but she has A LOT of family I don't want to feel like I want to go home the whole time. That one suggestion of the bubble thing sounds like a good idea (thank you lilylove) and I like to keep my options open so if you have any more suggestions don't hold back! 😊

Isis-Kehpre,

It's not always easy...

For my first shield I 'visuilized' a giant glass ball all around me... This ball had only one opening and I was the only one who could open it. Only my emotions could 'cross' the barrier that the glass ball formed, no one eles's.

Calm your thoughts, light a white candle and some relaxing incense (if able) then concentrate on the candles flame... See it grow into a ball that circles you completely...'picture' the walls becomeing 'solid yet clear'. 'Build' a door in this ball... Focus your thoughts and 'convince' yourself that the only emotions that can enter and exit without your permission are yours.

Protection and Shields are the answer here, if this method of 'building' one does not work for you there are plenty of books that maybe able to teach you a way that works for you.

I hope this helps, please keep us posted.

Respectfully,

Rook

try finding the off switch for your abilities and just be you for a little while without other people's emotions pouring forth into you.

I listen to music and commune with nature when I can't take a nap. Anything that helps you relax. Try not to think of other and just live in the moment and concentrate on what your doing. Some people like sports or boxing?

Keep the body occupied so the mind and heart can rest.

School will get easier as I learn more about myself I imagine. Empath I got 5 yesses on. I believe Iam. I also went on that website that A5 suggested to go on and that cleared up some questions as well as assured me about my 'newly' found gift. So thanks A5! Anywho still haven't told my mother but I brought up the subject. She said she can only vaugly sence others emotions their stronger if she was sitting or in close contact with said person. Me on the other hand I get to feel a whole class full of emotions! Oh yeah... It gets better and better... If you guys have any other suggestions feel free to share 😊

You're an empath. So am I, only I get thoughts and intentions as well as emotions. It's like: distractability much? Annoying but somewhat useful, invasion of privacy, but hey- check out the glossery here: psychic.au.com
Want to help, as we all do

Thank you guys so much! I wasn't really sure... Obviously but now that I have more views on this and you all agree, I have to admit I also have to agree. I tried the bubble thing, and it worked. My headach let up so much I could just brush it aside 😁 I'll keep you guys updated and about my moms 'cool' stories... Now to find the perfect moment to tell her...

I have to agree with the previous posters. Your mother would be your best bet here. What a perfect way to learn more about your abilities than to have them handed down through family? The one on one, teacher/student relationship can be very strengthening as well. I learned so much from just being around my mother when she was 'handling' spirits that, had I not been paying attention, would have gone right over my head otherwise.
You are very fortunate in that respect. Please do keep us updated. 😊

Hey
I agree with the person below me you diffently sound like your an empath and you should listen to RookDygin you should tell your mom and since she more older then you she probably knows how to deal with her empathy and If your empathy gets too strong for you, you can always try imaging a bubble around you. Think of the bubble like a shield it works for me when my empathy gets too strong. Good luck 😁

Isis-Kehpre,

It does sound as if your Empathic abilities may be growing stronger. I'd speak to you Mother about what's going on seeing as you have described her as not only Open Minded, but 'Empathic' as well.

She should be where you turn to for aid... First and Foremost. Please keep us updated and if your Mom has some 'cool' stories/experiences see if she will share those with us here as well. The more the Merrier.

Respectfully,

Rook

trust me being an empath is never going to be easy you just learn to deal with it. But on the bright side you can do some good if you want. Here is my story:

Perhaps I should have entitled it My life as a relunctant Empath. Lol
