Shielding And Training For Empaths?


I'm an 18 year old empath, and though I've known for a while about my ability only when I read some articles on this site did I realize there were ways to harness this. On my own I've discovered a shield for my interactions with spirits which is to form a light in the center of me and expand it outward as a shield. Literally only minutes ago did I read that some empaths are using this as a way to shield themselves from negative emotions.

Imagine my pride as I find out that even in my inexperience I'm not so far behind the curve. I would really love to find other ways to shield myself because when I have my particularly sensitive days sometimes there are too many emotions or the emotions are too strong and they literally make my heart hurt. I assume that's purely because its too much for me to handle. I've read that meditation and prayer might help me focus better.

I was wondering if there were any tips or particular methods that any of you used or any ways to help me control this. I'm finding my prediction ability to fade but in the areas of being sensitive to other people and spirits things are getting out of hand.

Thank you very much for reading and I am open to any counsel that can be given.

Ninjaman, may I speak with you in private? Maybe I can help you realize why your comments get downvoted.

ACOT, a more direct method may provide better results. A simple egg type shield programmed to repel energy you do not want near you. Your will is your most helpful, and harmful, asset.

As you discovered on your own there is nothing complicated to protecting one's self. You've asked if there are ways to assist on days when your feeling over whelmed... Try this...

Take a break, go out to a park, your yard or any clear grassy area, kick off your shoes and walk barefoot through the grass. As you do this visualize all the 'extra' energies/emotions draining away into the ground. I call this 'grounding' 😉. I find that it helps restore my balance as the 'overload' drains off and is 'processed' by nature. If it's night and you can't get to a place where you can walk barefoot just go outside take a deep breath and look up at the stars, visualize the extra 'energies/emotions' floating up and away to be 'processed' by the Cosmos. Meditation, Guides and Guardian Spirits are all wonderful suggestions as well, and while I'm familiar with mine I feel the best route is to keep things simple... Just like you learned how to shield yourself.

Small word of warning... Pride can be a 'killer'...being Humble, Respectfully of the 'Powers that Be' and not Seeking Gain for oneself... Well let's just say... You know I'm not going to get 'preachy' so moving on...

Be Safe, Thank you for sharing and please keep us updated on any progress / fall backs you may have and never be afraid to ask questions because Knowledge is Power.

I've heard of spirit guides but I'm a bit skiddish to pursue this venture due to some recent troubles I've been having. Thank you greatly for the links and the advice, it is much appreciated and the site looks very helpful:]

Well, I don't know if I'm an empath so much, so I can't really say I can relate to you in such a way. I am having some trouble with my own ability, however. Like, every night for the past week, I haven't been able to sleep very well because of all these invading thoughts in my head. And I mean thoughts that I've never even intended to think of, and I can kind of "hear" friends talking or maybe thinking. I'm wondering if it's telepathy, but I'm not entirely sure yet. It's beginning to get out of control, though, and I'd like to be able to tone it down some. Meditation and prayer does work, barely. As for counsel, I'm afraid I may not be of much help. I do ask my spirit guides to help me deal with it. Maybe you can do the same if you believe in guides and guardian angels. The shielding will help, however, it's going to take more practice to better shield yourself from invading energies and emotions, from what I've read. Practice daily, and visualize.

Visualization is possibly the best technique for anything spiritual. Meditation helps you control yourself more on multiple levels. And asking guides, angels, guardian spirits and such, will help you. They will guide you, protect you, and help you, only as long as your mind is open enough to receive their guidance will everything work. Everything takes practice. And it will take practice to open your mind more. So read up on psychism and such things to gain knowledge and to improve your growth. I don't know if this will help you, but I use this website to harness some abilities through its exercises.


You may also want to read up on psychics to gain some familiarity and relation to what they're going through and how they deal with things. I know one very influential and amazing psychic by the name of Pamela Haultain. Her story is in this link:


Again, I hope this will help you at least a little bit. Good luck, take care, and much love.
