Sharing Someone Else's Feeling


I've just had such a strange experience that I think it might have been a physic phenomena.

Let me give everyone a little background. I'm 32 years old and I've recently moved from London to San Francisco for work. I love traveling, my job and San Francisco is a pretty cool place too. So I've been really enjoying my time over here.

Anyway a good friend of mine from London was having a rough time so I invited him over to spend a couple of weeks here relaxing.

The first week was fine, he was a little quiet at times but seemed to enjoying the holiday. I was my usual upbeat self. All was good. Then everything suddenly changed.

It was a Friday night we had been to a few bars for drinks and both came back in a good mood. That night I went to bed a little drunk and had one of the worse nights of my life. I woke up at 3am and couldn't sleep due to huge fear and anxiety. I don't know what I was afraid of or why I was anxious. I was having huge waves of adrenaline and felt like I would die. I was awake for the rest of the night and finally passed out around 10am the next day.

When I woke the next day I felt really down and my friend was the quietest he's been. After that day the whole week was really odd. I was quiet, feeling depressed, anxious and odd intensely negative thoughts. I never get down and there was no reason to be. Through the second week my friend very quiet, distant and it was a real effort to strike up conversation with him.

My feels got so bad that I even went to see a doctor about it. As I was confused what might be causing it. The nights were the worse as I wasn't able to sleep.

After a couple of restless nights I had managed to get some sleep and as I was drifting off to sleep I had a very clear thought from my sub-conscience (?) that I was 'sharing' my friends emotions and thoughts.

My friend left 2 days ago, since he left my house I have been feeling completely fine, no anxiety and I'm able to sleep perfectly. It was literally like a switch had been flicked that changed everything.

The whole thing was odd and as I searched the Internet I came across a few other accounts from other people of similar events. I wanted to post my story and see if anyone else has had this before?

Also I should mention no drugs, legal or illegal, were involved.

I'm so glad I don't have those feelings anymore, they were hard to handle. And if he is feeling like I felt, then it must be such a burden for him.

Taking on other people's feelings are hard to deal with sometimes. Some people are better senders than other and the closer of a relationship you have with them the more likely you will pick up on their emotions. If you sleep with them it is extremely easy to pick up their moods. One trick I use to deal with it is imagine a silver cord linking me to the other person the emotions are coming from and I put a big wall smack dab in the middle of it. I'm not cutting the cord to the person, unless I don't like them, just blocking the energy. I leave the block there. Some stuff still seeps through every once in a while but then I just reenforce the wall or take it down if desired. The wall on the link is a useful trick instead of an all around shielding because then you can pick up on other peoples emotions just not that individual.

You're an empath.
I'm one too, and it's hard to handle. Dealing with multiple sets of emotions is wierd and sometimes feels like an invasion of privacy. Happens to me a lot.
Glad you're all right

When I take on others feelings I have an invisible button that I press to put up a bubble of protection. Take a thought of happiness and love and fill your bubble with it. Once you do it a few times you won't have to think on it, just go for the button. Strange visuals work well:)

Hello Cephas28,

I'm glad your doing better, have you ever heard of thought forms? Thought forms are collective feelings that develop from the same thoughts being felt repetitively. For instance, you walk in a church and you feel the vibe of praising god. Walk in a funeral home and you get the vibe of sadness, etc. I wouldn't say this was so much your doing as your friends. Your friend seems to be feeling so low that their aura has filled up and collectively developed within your apartment/house. If it happens in the future, a good suggestion would be to go to a church (church is good cause they wipe out the negative energy because of its thought form, depending on your relation with church) or somewhere you feel you can focus, and remind yourself that these emotions are not common for you. These feelings and thoughts are not something you usually encounter.

What your doing is wiping away the influence that your friend has developed and resetting your psychic boundaries. Your mind can tell when invasive thoughts and feelings are influencing you. It'll confuse you and make you dwell in thought.

If you find yourself in similar situations in the future, remember what a quiet state of mind is, and push yourself to get the negative out, and positive energy in. This will create a balance within you that can be maintained.

Blessed be,
