I Can Feel What Animals Feel?


So, I'm Phychicstar, with yet another weird situation. Gosh my life is abnormal. (But I love it)

Anyway, basically I'm trying to figure out something weird I've been experiencing for a long time. And that's the fact that whenever I'm around an animal-especially one in pain-I seem to be able to FEEL what the animal is feeling in that moment in time. To better explain, I should probably give an example.

Okay, so today I was in a really good mood. I came home from school with a big smile on my face. Not one bad thing had happened all day. I felt really good. Then, out of nowhere my little-kid-neighbor knocked on my door. She was holding a tiny kitten that had been bitten by a loose dog. It was muddy, bloody, and barely breathing. The little girl said she'd found it and wanted to know if I could help it. I didn't know if I could but I said yes and took the kitten inside. I couldn't afford the vet, so I just stopped the bleeding, cleaned it off, and fed it. But that's not the weird part. The weird part is that the entire time, I could FEEL the pain the kitten was in. I could FEEL the dizziness, the light headedness, the fear and pain.

Finally when I was sure the kitten was going to be alright, I lay down on my couch to realize something almost just as weird: My good mood had entirely dissipated. I was exhausted and saddened. It was as if I had gone through the same ordeal as the kitten herself.

Oh, and remember, this is definitely NOT the first time this has happened. Stuff like this has happened to me since I was little. I just never gave it much thought. I thought it was just because I love animals.

So, is that what it is? Or is it more? Curse? Gift? Is anyone else experiencing this, or can you give me some info on it? I'm pretty clueless... I'd like to develop this into something useful if I could, though. Anyway, any response much appreciated!

You are an Empath, but for Animals. It's a good ability to have. But like you asked, it's a Gift and it's a Curse. You can use it for good, but it can use you too (like you've been exhausted because of it). You have to learn to live with it. From what you said, I'm guessing you want this ability to stay with you right?

If you still want the ability, but don't want to feel always the feelings follow my advice. My advice is that when you are feeling a pain from animal try to help him, that's first. But to let the pain go, you have to concentrate. Concentrate on letting it go, on keeping it away. I know you can do it. But helping animal is the most important part, because if you don't do it you won't be able to keep the pain away for so long.

If you want more informations about it, or how to keep the pain or feelings away email me. My email is on my profile page. Of course, if you got any other questions or just want somebody to talk to then I'm up for it too 😊.

Your experience relates to how an 'empath' absorbs and 'feels' on the inside. This same 'sensing' includes an animal's feelings also. The downside is that we absorb like a wet sponge. Too much outside influence we experience emotional overload which is very draining to the system. A simple meditation in a quiet undisturbed room for about 10 minutes will help you diffuse, relax and balance your energy.

Hello, I'm Austin and I believe that I may be of service.

What your experiencing is what I believe to be Physical Empathy (the ability to feel the pain of others). I say this because it is an ability that I have as well though mine is more often with humans. I can control when I use it but only because when I was a kid (around five years old I think) my mind suppressed it because I was in pain all the time. I had this ability unblocked during last summer and I've been able to control it since.
If you have any questions let me know.
