How Do I Get My Empath Abilities Back?


It's been a long time since I've written anything. But, to be honest it's been a while since anything substantial has happened.

Months ago, I felt like things were constantly happening. When I wasn't actually seeing things appearing I would almost always sense them. I could always see people's energy around them and I could get a pretty good feel for their emotions especially if they touched me. For the past couple months I've felt. I don't really know how to describe it. Maybe lost, just going through the motions, empty.

When I first realized things were slowing down I was relieved. I thought I would be happy I wasn't seeing things, and feeling things, and hearing things that sometimes scared me constantly. But as time goes on I feel so alone. I'm starting to doubt everything that I have ever experienced and it makes me wonder who I am and if I even know who I ever was.

I used to almost always be able to see people's energy around them. Now, I can only see it if my eyes are very tired, and I concentrate on the space just past them for a long time. The only thing that is keeping my faith in me is the nightmares. I know there's something more to them, I used to wake up from them and whatever was trying to communicate with me in my dream I could usually feel their presence afterwards. Now I wake up, and I feel nothing. I know they must still be trying to communicate, how else would I be having these dreams of people and places that I have never seen before?

Please, does anybody know how I can try to sharpen my senses again? I'm getting desperate, I feel anxious not being able to sense as much as before. I feel blind, even when having conversations with people; it's harder to read their emotions than ever. Has anyone else gone through a long break like this, seeming like all your senses are numbed? I just want to go back to the way I felt before. I doubt even the small feelings left that I have.

For example: I was at a family party and I looked into the driveway and just got this dull worried feeling. It was very specific and about my nephew. I was worrying about him hitting his head on the pavement. But I just thought it was no big deal; anyone would have that worry, right? A few minutes later he arrived and ended falling and smacking his head on the driveway in the very spot I'd just been staring at. Is it merely coincidence, or had I predicted it?

I know sharpening my senses will mean coming back in contact with the things that scare me most. But I also know it will be easier to communicate with the people who I've lost who I love most. I feel like this major piece of me is gone and that I desperately need it back. Does anybody know how, or any exercises I could do to help bring them back? Or maybe it's just an extended break and they will slowly pick back up? Or does this mean that my gifts are withering into nothing? Please, any knowledge would mean the world. I have no one else to go to talk about this. Thank you so much.

Well, you know next time you should do something if it's preventable other wise your nephew wouldn't have gotten hurt. I know how you feel, this reminds me of a story a few years ago. I had an weird violent vision, so violent one wouldn't it think it possible. Turns out it was possible someone can do that...

j-torrez and csegoviano,
Thank you for the encouragement! It's extremely helpful to know that others have gone through what I am going through and helps make me feel less lonely. I wish you both good luck, also! ❤

I will definitely keep you updated when I start to feel better! Unfortunately, it's been difficult to get my diet back on track, because my house is being re-done so it is hard to eat healthy food when at the moment my kitchen is non-existant. But once I see progress, I will let you know! ❤

Thank you for the advice. I used to meditate and I think I was trying too hard, because it was less relaxing and more stressful. I'm going to try to do what you say and just listen. Thank you! ❤

you know what? I was trying to find mine too. I really enjoyed it. However I'm not sure why it went away. I was really good at feeling things from peoples past. Of course they didn't want to hear what I had to say but it would just blurt out anyway. Mine always came with flashing pictures and strong emotions. I would cry because it hurt so much the pain they went through was just torture.

I actually had that happen to me once. I had wished my powers way, I thought I wanted to be normal. I to found it to be depressing and felt like I could take life no longer, but mine only lasted a week. I remember how I cried and felt as a full for ever wanting to be normal. Being able to see things is who I am and it was given to me so I could help not cower away. So I accepted me and my abilities and went though my day believing that they were still there. Soon they were back. You see you are to focused on not having them at this moment that you don't realize they did not go anywhere they are just waiting for you to believe in yourself again. Good luck! 😉

Icysnow, definitely keep me updated if you find that the diet and exercise help! I'm noticing this trend and really think its worth noting. If my theory is right, we can all get our abilities to a higher level, though its bound to take some work and discipline.
Best of luck! ❤

Greetings---meditation is the key. Meditation! You can restore many things, regenerate many things. Do not try to guide the meditation, or you may be lost in images that choke the mind.

Listen carefully, that is how you begin. Do nothing except listen. Stretch it out, listen to the cars outside, listen beyond that to the next city! Stretch out to the universe. Then slowly come back again.

I recommend you do this twice a day: in the a.m. When it is comfortable and in the eve when you are slightly tired. You'll see!

Rest in the Palm of Buddha. ❤

Wow that's an amazing connection that I hadn't thought about, but it really makes sense! Yes, I will admit that over these past few months I also had started to eat more unhealthy and I've worried myself about depression (since it runs in my family). I'm really glad you commented, I'm going to try to get back on track with my eating and exercising and see if I start improving. Thank you! ❤

Icysnow, this is very interesting to me as I'm deciding to do a study to help us figure out how to sharpen our senses. I have a very strong personal belief that simply the things we introduce our body to daily, the main source being our diet, can affect our abilities.
If you don't mind my asking, you mentioned that since your last ability, months have passed, and you were feeling alone, and that things were changing in your life. I'm wondering if this caused any depression (even the slightest). The reason I ask this, is despression is one of the biggest factors in a diet change. Have you noticed you eat different things since your last experiences? Perhaps drinking more (or less) caffeine? Eating more processed meals rather than making your own? Eating more or less in general? Have you started or stopped taking any meds or vitamins? (specifics not needed, for your privacy).
I really think that our lives have become more and more artificial. I'm guilty of this myself and the reason I'm studying this is because after majoring in Culinary Arts and studying diets and foods, I realize how much the human body has been introduced to even in this last decade that humans didn't have in the past. Like many people here I also want to find out the best ways to "tap in" or strengthen my abilities as well. 😁
