Real Psychic Experiences

Empath Or Something Else? I Want To Learn More

 

So, I'm just a little confused and need a bit of advice. Sorry if I seem to babble a bit, I find it hard to write stories with out including a lot of other detail... So I'll do my best.

I think it started when I took the role of helping everyone I could. People with issues were attracted to me, and I was attracted to them too. They were inclined to tell me their issues, and I was inclined to know and help as much as I could.

Whenever I helped them I'd always be giving so much wise and deep advice, which I don't think came from me. I just knew what to say and it came without thought. I have tried to do it on purpose when it wasn't much needed but I'd get stuck for words and it wouldn't have much affect.

Whenever I got involved with their issues I was able to easily understand them. When I gave them advice they very quickly felt better, but I was left feeling worse.

Sometimes I felt overwhelmed and cried for no reason. My mum believed it was because all these negative issues and emotions that people told me of were affecting me, although she had no thought that it had something to do with being psychic. I simply assumed it was my depression screwing with my head.

It didn't take long for me to sweep up the problems and dispose of them. Most of them were affected with depression, and I think that because I have depression, that's why we had that kind of connection? If you understand what I mean? Anyway, it was mostly cleared up and I had given enough help to last them for a while. Occasionally they talk to me about smaller issues which I also help with.

I had a strong connection with a boy who suffered a bad life and depression. I always asked if he was okay whenever he wasn't, even though I didn't have a clue that something was wrong. He had on-going issues and I was always there for him.

I was then able to guess when people were upset. It was very faint. I just had a kind of hunch.

(The boy who I had a strong connection with eventually ended up leaving his girlfriend for me because we were so close and we have an even better connection now)

So, this is when it really hit me.

I was sitting in a weeping willow tree out on the farm. I go there almost every day to get away from everything and relax, get some space. You could probably say that it was meditating. I feel so at peace there. Anyway, I had been with my boyfriend for a few weeks and I had already told him all my abilities.

I had my eyes closed and my mind was very quiet. Suddenly it felt like my consciousness had been thrown somewhere else. I felt as though I'd been pulled through time or space or a dimension... Like I had been pulled through some kind of force field and I suddenly had awareness of what was going on inside that force field.

My eyes flew open and I knew it was about my boyfriend. There was something wrong. I felt so sad, angry, confused and hurt... It pains me now to think about it. I started crying and felt as if I could scream and cry for hours. I was so worried about him. When he finally replied to my texts, he told me what had happened, and it was a huge blow to him.

In my mind, the explanation of this is that his emotions were so strong, and some kind of wave, like a sound wave, traveled loud and clear just to get to me. Like thunder. And I think that's why I felt like I had been pulled through a force field. The force field was the sound wave of the thunder. It's hard to explain very clearly...

After this it was like it had been an initiation. All the strong empath stuff happened after I realized that I was able to do that. Like when you get a cut, and you don't feel the pain until you see it. I was constantly connected to not only my boyfriend but my best friend too. I continuously felt their negative emotions. I was able to help them out but honestly I was sick of carrying their negative emotions on my shoulders.

After about a week I coped better. I didn't always feel their negative emotions and thoughts. I still only feel their emotions and I don't know why not other people, such as family.

Now I've developed a bit more. I only feel their emotions when I 'zone out' and think of... Not much. It feels like a 3D shadow of their body lays inside my body and our heart chakras are aligned. Then the area of my heart chakra has a weird sensation while I feel their emotion. I don't always feel negative emotions now either.

The last thing, I can pick up information that isn't even on subject. It's like it's been imprinted on whatever has been said and I can feel it. Someone might send me a text saying 'Hey' and I'd pick up that they are upset and want help, as if that message had been imprinted onto it. I also feel whatever emotion that is imprinted on a song. It's actually quite fun and sometimes trippy.

So, my questions for you:

Is this empath? Is it also something else?

Why can I only feel the emotions of my boyfriend and best friend? Why not other people?

How do I strengthen my ability? I want to purposely be able to feel peoples emotions and be able to influence them too.

Are there any other things I can do with this ability?

If you have any advice even if it's not an answer to one of my questions, please feel free to share it. I'd also be pleased to receive simple feedback as well as advice.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Google "The Law of One" and please people try and have an open mind? I'm getting tired of people bashing these books.

Do any of you realize that these books were made by a group of psychics that channeled this "RA" being? I'm sure most don't bother to look any further then the point of RA being mentioned and thus putting two and two together from what every person should know Ra being the Egyptians God and all but NO in fact that is NOT what RA is/was

Again you must have an open mind for ANY of it to make sense:) I'm only on the 23 session out of like 140 I think? Its interesting enough to keep me reading it from 8am until noon daily for the past week:P

as in dimension? Like 3D. I remember or at least seem to have this unexplainable impression that we're in a shift to a time of higher vibration and objectives where we will break the barriers of "normality" and people will begin experiencing these "things" regularly. It's a time of change and we're lucky to be here, that's why there is a giant rush of advanced souls coming to Earth to be here too!

We are drawing near to the end of a 75, 000 year cycle here on earth. Yes many "new souls" are coming here from other 3rd density planets to attempted to make the "harvest" to 4th density and some will repeat 3rd density until the lessons here are learned that are needed to move on to 4th density worlds:)

Yes it's probably also the generation. I read somewhere that the new millennium is a time of enormous change where souls are coming to Earth to be a part of it and as a result are bringing their higher vibrations to our plane.
This is really heavy with the whole supernatural stuff but I personally believe it's a strong possibility:)

Yeah I agree with most of you. A lot of people come to me for advice or help and I don't know why haha any ways yeah I think it has to do with the generation and genes and stuff like that because I think we are always evolving 😆 and yeah I definitely help you:)

I think the reason you can only feel your boyfreinds and best freinds emotions is because you have built a strong connection with them, what you wrote is very similar to me, people come to me for help and I just help them without really knowing it.

But, after a while some people kept coming back again, and again, for more advice, and to feel like their is someone who can understand them.

And with these people I have built a connection, a freindship, I can see how we are similar, and can see how we effect each other.

And with this connection, I can also pick up their feelings, and with one person, our connection is so strong that, wherever we may be, (she could be miles away.) I would feel a terrible guilt if something had happened to her, and the guilt would build until I would feel really dizzy and sick, and the only way to rid of it was to talk to her and sort it out.

I Expect a load of people have said this, but the key to all this stuff is to build connections with others, once you have, and if you have the mind for it, there really is a lot you can do.

Sometimes it is easy to build a connection with someone, I don't know if it is just by tricking your mind into thinking you have a connection or what, but I do know that if you watch someone, and try to see the similaraties that you and that person has, you can almost feel the connection building.

Also Cin. I think it has something to do with the generation. Before I left the site a while back it seemed that there were a lot of elementals.

Definitely! As more and more people find that they're not alone or weird and with the internet allowing people to delve into this stuff more easily than ever before, the number of empaths as well as clairvoyants, mediums, APs and others are rocketing!

Okay guys, first of all thanks for all the replies and help. I've been away for a few days and just in that time I've become a bit more skilled.

[at] Sinfire: Thanks. Yeah, I already cleanse and shield. And also, what you said about helping people is very true, as I have learnt not long ago...

[at] Geo: That's okay I don't mind people asking for help. I did it when the posting link was offline too. It sounds really cool how you can influence those things. I would like to be able to get to that stage some time soon. I believe that the first step in anything is believeing! So if you are wanting to control your abilities just believe you can, and you will learn. Someone else probably has better tips but that's what I do. Do you think you could teach me once you understand it a bit better? 😆

[at] Austin: Wow thanks for all the info. I have the emotional empathy of course, but now only with my boyfriend. My bestfriend stopped believing me for some reason and blocked me out, pushed me away. That's the only information I can pick up from her now. I also recently started trying to manipulate people. I can't do it very well while I am very concious. I have to go into a deeper state. I think I also have telepathy. At anytime that I feel emotions it feels as though a 3D shadow of their body lays in mine and our heart chakras are aligned and I feel as though we are joined in a way, and that's how I feel their emotions. So basically I took this method and purposely used it. When I try to change someones emotions I imagine our hart chakras aligned & as one and I send the emotion I want to give them. When I try to manipulate them I visualise that their mind is inside of mine (or vise versa) and our third eye chakra is aligned. Then we're connected and I can try to manipulate them OR send a message, which I think is telepthy... Or I can influence them to do something. I've only really used this over long distance but the results prove that it isn't just coincidence.
I've also noticed that when I want something I usually get it. When I want abilities I get them a lot faster now... As I have just explained 😊

[at] Cinnamon: Oh yes, I can meditate. I have fallen out of that good habit for a day or two because my house is so busy. (6 people in the house, 5 dogs and 4 cats to take care of, chores, and all the rest that you would expect in a busy house. I'm surprised I am psychic at all with all this fuss around me!) Anyway I will start meditating again and I will aso try that method you suggested. I've also tried communicating with my pets. I am not too good at it but I am getting better.

P.S.
What does it mean when you sometimes begin to doubt yourself? I know all these abilities are real, but sometimes I have moments where I kind of doubt myself and feel as though it cannot be real, but then after a while I snap out of it and wonder what on Earth I was thinking that for! I think these could be the thoughts of someone else, which makes me sad. It shows that this is how someone thinks of what I tell them. What do you think?

Also, I love to learn. Honestly, if there are anythings that you think you could teach me, please do! I'm also going to send a few emails, if no one minds...

Again, thanks for all the help you've given me. Even if it's just one of your experiences. Everything I take in kind of builds up and encourages me, and influences my abilities into becoming stronger.

❤ Caitylin

I agree with Cinnamon (sorry if I misspelled that) on expanding your abilities, but before you do that I recommend that you get good at turning your empathy on and off first. I mean its going to suck if you can't turn off your empathy when your empathing off about a hundred people. Just my advice.

Hey caitylin,

I'm sorry that you had to go through depression, it's not an easy thing by any means.

However everything does happen for a reason and I believe that this ordeal made you more sensitive tot eh feelings of others.

In the beginning, I think that you only attracted negative emotions because that's what you yourself were feeling.

As you began to get happier again, not only did you become more attuned, you also began experiencing positive emotions.

First off, I believe that you can only feel the people who are closest to you because they're just that - closest to you.

To extend your sensitivity, I suggest meditation. I know it can be difficult and boring at times but if you can focus, then you will be setting the starting blocks for extending your powers.

Think of your powers as a bubble, when you meditate, try and push that bubble outwards, further and further.

Even if you find that you can't, or that it just snaps back into place, that's okay, you've at least made it more flexible.

Try doing this quite a bit, this will extend your range.

To become more attuned all I can say is practice.

Practice on animals as their emotions are most basic; hungry, cold, run etc. When you've mastered them, you can move on to trying other people.

Close your eyes and focus on the animal. Sense where it is, maybe you see it as a light.

Try and BE the animal or at least get a colour from it. Analyse the feelings received with that colour or just the colour itself.

The same works for people too.

Hope you're all better now and that your power continues to improve.

Cinnamonwarlock 😊

P.S. Often asking yourself why you want a power (any power at all) and being able to answer that with a completely selfless and positive answer, will allow you to gain and develop it)

well I'm not sure if the mask affected your friend because my demons are different from others. Its a long story. But not all demons thrive off negative energies.

Geo I'm glad I was able to help you just practice with your abilities and youll grow to like them more. Just a side note all that advice I gave you was trough my empathy and my own past experiences.

he posseses my sister so he can eat and do diferent things he wouldn't normally be able to do on his... Dimension I guess, but he isn't evil, anymore anyways so I'm hoping the mask won't effect him. My sis is very gifted, more so than I and she allows him to "borrow" her body while she kind of goes to sleep. It's not unwilling on her part or anything.

10 years ago (2011-01-16)
oh no now I'm worried, what has it done to my demon friend... He doesn't share a body with me, but he does share with my sister. He is currently staying with me since I moved four hours way from her, but this mask is probably making him weak unless he can block it somehow...

hey why does everyone think because I say something is demonic I think its "evil"?

I think both terms are relative and that there is a purpose for everything. FOr example people should be "fearful" sometimes. Especially when they want to hurt others for no reason.

Ok hi I haven't been on for a while. I am an empath as well and to tell the truth I'm a little more advanced than you guys (no offence of course) I have experienced all the same things you have and more.
Ananda: Not all demons are bad, I have two demon embodiments that share a body with me and though thier names may imply differently they are pretty friendly for the most part.

Geo: I do believe that manipulation is part of empathy I use it all the time (not for bad things of course).

Scorpio-girl: the mask is not demonic or in anyway evil it absorbs negative energies from the people who look at it. It probably does more for those who wear it but that is only a guess.

Geo (again): don't wish that your abilities were not there. They are what define you and if they are gone you will feel horrible. Like a part of you has been ripped away. With this warning voiced I can tell you how to get rid of them. Use my advice at your own risk. The easiest way to get rid of an ability is just to wish it away and ignore it. Your mind will adapt to your thoughts and your abilities will fade over time.

Now for the main topic
(empathy)
This is an ability I have had since I can remember. I classify it in two groups.

Group1: Psychical empathy
Psychical empathy is where you feel the psychical feelings of another person ie. Pain, tickling, ect.
Its not very common and I am the only one I know of who can do it. When I was a kid I subconsciously sealed my P. Empathy away because I was always hurting, but just recently unsealed it with the help of my girlfriend.

Group 2: emotional empathy

You all have experienced this I assume. Its name says it all feeling peoples emotions. Altering them is part of it too though I'm not good at it. Being convincing and manipulating is part of that too, that part I'm skilled at. Then there was the advice thing. Thats normal too I mean just think of how many of you used that when you were typing you comments on this page.
And to clear up why empathy ocures I have a theory. Everyone's subconscious mind is linked with everyone else's and its through this that we break into another person's mind.

Ok if there was something I forgot to mention or you have any questions just email me. My email is on my profile.
You may want to read it before contacting me.

Oh and P.S.
I hate that mask. It stole a lot of my negative energy. My demon embodiments thrive on and collect negative energy from people.

i know that this has nothing to do with it but: Oh I have that same ability I think its a common one too. As for me I've been bothered by I don't know what but I know its a shadow and has redish yellowish eyes and I know I can manipulate water but a little of it and I can read thoughts involuntary and it sucks... I know a lot of people would be lucky to have these but I just don't I hate listen to what people have to say about someone or me. And I can manipulate feelings around me but its hard usally my emotions change rapidly in a huge room like I get confindent than sad and happy and soo on... I needd help from anyone here please and there's a lot more like I think I can move objects with my mind. And when I listen to music I feel the mood or vibe that the music is meant to send. And I also think I can manipulate air. And as for the dark shadows I feel them watching me and I get chills I see them smiling at me and they have teeth they are long and skinny. And when I'm pissed off let's say in my class I guess I manipulate peoples feelings and everybody starts arguing even the teacher. Another example when there was a fight between my friend and a small kid I felt really angry and wanted to hit someone and realized that those werent my emotions and I concentrated on calm thoughts and I felt like a I don't know how to describe it a tingle through out my body followed by achill then suddenly everybody started calming down. And also people say I can manipulate them very easily and I don't know how, I guess its part of empathy? And plsss someone help me these "gifts" are driving me crazyyyy! Oh and p.s I can dream the future and so can my ex and shes an empath and have any of you ever went out with another pyshic... Didn't work out for me lmao! But no in all seriousness please help and thanks for reading this

okay, il be simple. Since ha you wrote a lot il write less. Balance you know?
Your like an emotional sponge, you absorb. Sure you got that now. But my advice il give is learn how to rid yourself from what you pick up. Learn how to cleanse yourself is what I'm saying. How?
Well that's something you should look up, itl really help out. Also...
You know, just because you care to help people doesn't mean your always meant to help everyone. See, sometimes you need to learn to take care of yourself because when you do that, youll be there for the people you are truly meant to be here for.

The people that you are closest to won't always be the ones that you can feel the strongest. If they have that same connection to you as you have to them, and you are all sensitive then you will feel them the strongest. You are defiantly an empath though, no doubt, and I think this is a great talent that you can use to help people, and also to stay away from people. I agree with Bishop that one of the best ways is to do things like try to see auras. I think that in time, you may find that you won't only feel when things are wrong, but get a sense of what is wrong, to both people you know and people you don't. You might find that you only have to look at a person and you know things about their lives and the people they love too.
A warning is that you shouldn't try to get to drawn into this "power", if you like. A life dealing with others lives as well as yours can be stressful and you could get depression easily. So try to keep your life private sometimes and not always involved with others. Try not to let anybody take advantage of your empathy.
I believe that each person is connected to everybody else, and that some people are open and sensitive, while others are closed. You are lucky to have this... Take care. X

First of all, I was originally shadowbishop before my computer deleted it. Second, Scorpio, as soon as I saw that picture, mt body kind of...froze. I couldn't move. There is something in that mask that I don't like... Like a spirit. Something... Possessing the mask, kind of. Creepy. I would suggest getting rid of it, but don't burn it or destroy it. Bury it or give it away. I am just following a hunch, but... My hunches are usually more accurate than my predictions...
Bishop loses a knight. 😲

Scorpio... I just took a look and as soon as I saw it I felt very creeped out. I don't have a clue what it is or why it feels so scary to me, unless I am picking up an imprint of your emotions on it. I think it is causing the lights to flicker too. Other than that I have no clue what to think about it. Except that it makes me scared and intimidated.

scorpio it has dark spirit energy but that doesn't mean its "evil" dark energy can be used to "eat" or destroy things that would cause the world to be off balanced or destroyed otherwise: example demons who cause people to murder innocent children.

Just because it scares you doesn't mean its evil.

I didn't know I was to be scared by my abilities until I started telling people about what I saw when I was little. They didn't think it was interesting that their mom had a pointy dark shape whispering in her ear. (I found out later when we were older that her mom used to beat her)

The headless dude would loan me his head to toss around with the other ghost. I didn't think it was strange until someone told me. I still have a hard time believing everyone can't see this stuff.
