Two years ago I found out that I was an Empath and at first I was scared, confused, and stressed. However, I have been practicing and trying to get it stronger so I could control my emotions and block out other people's unwanted emotions. But this brought up a question that I hope fellow Empath's could answer. If you are I would say like practicing by opening your mind up, could you invite unwanted spirits into your home? For example could someone accidentally open the door without even knowing? I only ask this because two years ago I lived in a house where out of nowhere activity started occurring everywhere I was. For example I seemed to always feel watched and it got so bad that I was afraid to go to sleep at night. Being an Empath is also hard because I was the only one in my family to feel that someone was there.
I am just afraid that if I try to focus my energy to control it, it would bring in spirits who are malevolent or even a demon. That would be the last thing I would want to deal with and bring spirits into my home. I also sometimes would use tarot cards on occasion. Is this risky too? It would really put my mind at ease if someone could help me figure this out. Thank you.
