Confused About Empathic Abilities


I will begin by saying that I have always had the sense of something other than myself that I have always believed to be other's emotions, feelings, or intentions. I never put much weight into it, though, until more recently when I received numerous confirmations of what I was feeling. So, I do know for a fact that I am sensing others around me, which explains why being out and around many people completely exhausts me and possibly makes my body hurt, but I'm not real sure about that.

My family I believe has psychic genetics, but all of my aunts and my mother are also very religious which has completely skewed their views of these abilities. Numerous aunts have mentioned that our family is cursed. My mother has talked about being tormented by demons since she was a small child, but will not go further than that because she says that the Bible teaches against talking about them. Although she does have dreams that she says come true. Sometimes she will call to check on all of her children because she had another dream and couldn't tell who exactly it was about. Like I said, though, she if very vague and will not get into specifics. This is how I feel my aunts are also. Since I was very young I have been taught that anything spiritual or psychic is bad and brings great wrath upon someone, so I have had fear of seeking anything further than the feelings I get around people. Until lately anyway.

My mother married a man when I was about 10 or 11 and his mother was a psychic that traveled around. My mom always told us not to bother her when she would stop by and stay at the house, but my sister and I being curious once asked her to read our palms and those of our friends. She was hesitant at first but then agreed as long as we did not tell my mother. I was the last to have it done, but she sort of just stopped doing mine and didn't really give me a reason. She had told my friends and sister so many things and I just felt awful because I didn't get a reading. It has always bothered me as why she stopped to suddenly.

As a young adult, I took a path away from religion to seek deeper answers for the feelings that I have, which has helped to grow within me a deeper sense of connection to the power that is within all things. I have and continue to contemplate deep within myself. For the most part I feel so strongly that the world is falling apart and that I cannot help it, but some days I am given hope that some will listen to the deeper message that lies in wait all around us. I have begun to speak to an entity that I feel is near me and is here to help me, be it spirit guide or angel. I try to be a positive force.

I have also begun to try and put a shield of protection around my home, which at first I thought I was imagining until my daughter said that she doesn't see the shadows beings at the house because of the protection. She said this like I had told her about it or something, and I had only been doing this in my mind at night before going to sleep and never mentioned it to anyone.

So, this is where I have hit a wall so to speak, two of my children have said they see large black figures, which I have never seen, but don't really know what to do about other than the protection. I also wonder too if I astral project at night sometimes. When I do the protection of the home I feel as though I am in the air above my house looking down and pulling together this light shield down over the house. I do lucid dream, like I am awake and actually experiencing the dream in real life. I have crazy deja vu all the time. I do hurt terribly, though. I can't figure out why I still experience such pain in my body except that it keeps me grounded in a path of continued growth. Like the pain is a daily reminder that I need to continue to search for a deeper connection. I feel as though I am stuck to the point of frustration.

So if anyone has suggestions please feel free.

Thanks for reading.

I agree with the other posters, that praying to a higher spiritual power, Jesus and His Angels, will bring peace and happiness to your home. Just as these spirits are real, so is God! Things that help us get close to God are spiritual practices: prayer, fasting, reading the bible and psalms- demons HATE that-, and PRACTICING what the bible sais, as much as we can. (and if you're catholic or orthodox, confession of sins to a priest, and holy comunion at least 4 times a year. That helps alot.). You don't have to feel icky about church...Jesus, Mary and the apostles went there to pray all the time! If you could only see the Holy Angels that are present in church during mass! Little children in their parents' arms, point up to the ceiling and laugh and coo at the air... They see the Angels LOL! Don't be afraid of church. Church is RITUAL... Ritual has been the way humans comunicate with the divine, since Adam and Eve! Demons cannot come through, like they do in seances, shaman rituals, channeling, meditation, ouija board etc. Forgive me if I made you uncomfortable. See my PROPHILE for some awesome books- true life stories, about people who experienced spirits, God and the supernatural, in a very DEEP way, they have awesome messages for us all. Good luck!

Icky is the word we use in our house for the feelings that we get from other people who have either bad intentions or bad auras. That seemed to be the only word that sort of says it all.

When my husband gets frustrated about something or starts worrying I just tell him he feels icky and he knows he needs to do some deeper reflecting to clear it up.

I have to agree with the icky statement. I was going to post that earlier but decided against it. But what the hey, it's true. Churches are actualy a scary place, rather than a tranquil one. (not all of them I should add... Just nearly all).

Going to church is just that word... "icky" I never really thought of it that way but now that its written down and someone else feels that at a church, that's spot on.

No I have not seen the shadow beings myself, and I only found out about my daughter when I overheard her telling her cousin. My son, though, outright pointed at the wall and said there is another black dinosaur, so I guess it was a rather large shadow being he was seeing.

We are very open at our house about everything so my kids are quite used to talking about paranormal stuff and we also pull from many different religions and philosophies in our beliefs, so they are used to that also. We do not attend and church or synagogue because the "icky" feeling is way to high for me to tolerate, and I have yet to find one that doesn't.

I don't know if you pray but you can do so around your house if you don't like them in your yard.
My mother did at a place where the house felt tense where we used to live.
One day she went walking around her house once, then the second time a little further out, the third time a little further from the second time, the fourth time a little further from the third time, the fifth time a little further from the fourth time, the sixth time a little further form the fifth, and last but not least the seventh time.
She said the seventh time looked the hardest because there was lots of downed trees (they looked hard to scramble over but once she got going then it was easier) in the yard and her neighbor seemed to be obliged by the action so she held her dogs back.
The tension ceased and it got much brighter in the house after that was done.

I guess I could say that I'm a loner in my beliefs and religion.
When I go to a church it's not because I don't understand what their trying to say. I do get it but I think I'm more evolved than that. When things happen at the church that are exciting then I'll go. For now I just go so that my kid could get her socializational skills better and so that she at least learns about that kind of stuff. When I don't have her that's when I don't go and pray in my own terms and talk to God whenever I feel like it.
OKAY! Enough of my religion now...
I've seen some at my friends' house that I might go stay with this weekend. Like at the corner of my eye. There small like a dog and give off an eerie feeling. I know it's not one of the dogs because they usually don't go upstairs to go in the other empty rooms. I don't stay long enough to talk to them. I think I'm to chicken $#it to do something like that *laugh*.
ChaosandOrder you have brave kids. I don't think I would be as brave as them if I was a kid and saw them.

I have too taken the path away from religion. I don't like the way people of our world try to use religion against others. But also, you too have seen the Shadow beings? Is it a coincidence that they are showing up everywhere?

Thank you for your comment. I too speak to my mother about revelation. I did move away from religion, but my path has shown me that our greater connectedness or God energy has given a message to all and it can be found all around us as long as we are listening, the bible is included as having many messages just not in the shallow sense that many perceive them, but the message is also in many other texts and even music once the veil is removed after seeking deep inner guidance and self purification.

I do believe that the earth is getting to a point of near total destruction in allowing itself to rebirth... Which gives me the feeling of relief. Many may think that is a bit "off" to feel relieved about destruction, but the amount of corrupt beings inhabiting the earth is too many to turn all of their perspectives around. The evil is too ingrained in their psyche.

This is the conclusion that I have made through my observations since childhood and the things that I speak about to God.

I did see some experiences on this site that spoke about shadow beings and I have taught my children what they could be.

I told my son, who has been having nightmares and bad thoughts that he has the power within him to tell them to leave him alone. He did so and then said they kept telling him they didn't want to leave him alone, he was persistent and has slept wonderfully for two nights and hasn't tried to steal any food either. I think he was firm enough with them and believed in his God given authority to take up for himself and make them leave.

He sad they would sit outside and try to talk to him, so I guess my shield that I have been putting around the house has been working to keep them out of the house, but not out of our yard.

Well like you I have been raised to not believe in "psychic's" and that they're bad.
But as I read on I begin to believe that everyone has some sort of intuitional experiences and some more than others.
I don't know if you were a religion that read the bible but me and my mother talk to each other about revelation. The earth on the news seems to be getting more hurt by the day; The oil spill in Mexico, the seals getting sick for no reason, the coral reef getting attacked by something unexplained, Thailand getting flooded, volcanoes erupting since who knows when, earthquakes killing the Japanese, the earthquake in turkey, and protesters around the world.
I would think that the oil spill was the tip of the iceberg from the bowls that the angels are pouring out onto the earth.
To explain your pain you have, I could only imagine, that you're so connected to the earth that whatever pains it has, so do you. Just to warn you from now on it only gets worst. Only 1/3 of all the earth will survive. Only until then will we start making the world anew.
You may have astral projection abilities. I know I have to help some people while I sleep.
The best thing you can do for your daughters is pray over them. Pray protection for them every day.
