Do Empaths Take Other's Habits?


Hey guys

First let me introduce myself to you. I have realized since a month that I am an empath. I can see auras of people glowing with white light. I have noticed that I some percentage of my dreams always come true.

There is one thing that is puzzling me since two months. Do empaths take sick habits from people other than emotions and energies? I was trying to help one of my friends with his bad habits like-spending his most time chatting with his girlfriend, listening to music with earphones all day and night, not studying at all, sleeping with shoes and belt on, and two others, but I found that as soon as I asked him twice or thrice for avoiding these things, I eventually found myself doing the same things next day onwards one by one.

I know if you think about other's weaknesses for long, they become a part of you but I didn't even think about those things much. And seeing so drastic effects in a day.

Yesterday he spent all day seeing his chapped lips in the mirror and I asked him if he was mad. The same night, I found my lips were chapped and burning like anything! I want to help him study, but if I tell him to, I am unable to study for a week. After spending some time with him, I usually feel drained and sleepy.

If I ask him not to spend his full day sleeping, the following day, I find myself sleeping all day. If I ask him not to miss his classes, I soon find myself missing classes.

I want to help people but will I have to pay the cost of taking it on me every time? There are good people out there who need help but will this happen over and over? That guy literally seems to be dumping his weaknesses over me.

It's not a burden on me now but what if It amplifies with time? Please help me come out of this.

Thanks chachacharlie for sharing your experience
What I did was, I put all my meditation and work on psychic abilities to a halt
So went down my empath skills and never ending heaviness in the head!
Meanwhile, I learned to keep a separation between me and people who had been dumping their poor habits onto me...

Finally I'm back to my meditation and my problem seems to have come to a halt 😁

Thanks for posting this. I have similar experiences. I am now realizing that my behavior and interests have changed over the past year or so mainly because of the company I have been keeping. For the most part I try to stay friends with spiritually minded people, but had a hobby of social dancing that ended up having a bad effect on me as an empath. I was picking up the low vibratory thoughts, feelings, and petty behavior they had. I never would have acted like that in the company of my other friends who would shun that behavior in people. I couldn't figure out why I was so exhausted an filthy with other people's jealousy and hatred. It is true I think that the aura/vibrations of others can influence your own--even when I try to shield myself, my tendency is to help people and mimicking perhaps was my way of being able to understand them. I had to take a break from that atmosphere and people. It took time, but I was getting back to normal. I've been learning more about lower/darker vibrations. I believe that dark energy wants to stick to something. It will eventually overpower if the person or thing does not "recharge" with Divine light. I know better now to really take care of myself as an empath. Even if you can't see these people coming who have problems and you end up picking something up, just know that you have to give yourself downtime to get yourself back to normal. I haven't figure out a 100% proof way to keep it from happening, but the trade of for being sensitive is to keep working on yourself. Good luck with everything! 😁

I have the same problem! And thank you kraken that really helps. Another thing I find to help is find time at night to yourself and think about who you are, what you want, what's happening in your life, and what your opinion on those things are.

i have yet to actually see any chakras besides what appears to be the crown and anja, so I'm not sure if they actually exist or not, so you might want to ask someone, but meditate so you can sense yor own energies, ill help you when I have more time

[at] Annev: Thanks for helping me but I did not force him anything. He asked me for help. I am not an egoistic or dictating kind of person (as everyone around me say). I let people be what they are but if they ask me to, I am always ready to help:)

[at] kraken: Thanks sir for the wonderful advice. I'll save more time for chakra meditation. I read an article which said that we can try visualizing that you are cutting strands between you and such people during meditation. I am feeling better after that:)

arjun, my advice to you is the same that I my self have used to deal with my empathy, I suggest long peroids of meditaions where you you focus soley on the incoming energy and your minds reactions to it, you may get tired or feel week, use rieki when this happens, remember to breathe fully (this has saved me daily for tha past year). LImit the amount of people and aslo as who you hang out with some people are incredably draining, Remember everyone is psychic your just the one that aware of it. Kundilini meditation has help as well as well as frequent exercise. I have read of professional psychics who forgot completly who they were becasue they had taken on to much of another persons energy. I wouldn't suggest this. In order to understand what is happening to you, you must have a clear mind.

Your friend may have a weakness of low discipline but your weakness is trying to fix him. People cannot be fixed. They will evolve as they are ready, not as your ego dictates. Your behavior indicates you know what is best for him, his time-line for growth and that he should be at your level, when in fact, none of that is true. His path is what is right for him right now in this moment (not your path nor mine). He should not be at your level because he simply is not. You cannot take a first grader (as an example) and shove them into college because you think that's where he or she should be because "it's so advanced and hey, look, I'm here so it must be the right place to be". The first grader must go through first grade or they will not be truly ready for second. If he doesn't want to study then he has to endure that path and come to the realization that there are consequences for his actions or lack thereof. Would you want to rob him of that lesson? Children have to do things like get on bikes and fall down so they learn how to ride. It is as it should be.

Let those "good people" you say need fixing come to you when they need help. Seeking them out is a form of a Disciple Complex. It's the ego that says, "Look how evolved I am! Let me fix you!". As you live your life as an evolved being, which will be evident to others, they will seek you out naturally when they are ready. Then you can help them with all that wonderful love you have inside of you. You have a good heart and great intentions but as you yourself have found out, it's exhausting playing the God role 
