Am I Losing My Empath Abilities


I have known about my empathic abilities for about a few months to a year. Last year I was a great empath. I could feel a person's emotion from way across the classroom. The feeling is heightened when I come into physical contact or I am very close to a person. I remember one time we were sitting in class and my teacher was talking about something and I zoned out. The next thing I know I feel sad and one of my classmates started crying. She was sitting in the back of the classroom and I was in the front. I felt her sadness and I almost felt like crying. Later I found out that both of her parents were dead. I'm still wondering if I really sensed her emotion. I can also slightly see the aura of living people and only some animals (I have no idea if this has to deal with my glasses that I wear). Not too long ago I think one the past Sunday around 11:45 I was lying in bed and my sister's cat was moaning. After my brother told the cat to shut up and knocked her off his bed, ten seconds later I have this feeling and all my hearing stops working and my vision goes black and white. Something told me to look over the edge of my bed and I did. I something that later that night we found out to be a baby cat. Before I called my dad into the room. I stared at it. I was still seeing in black and white, but I saw a whitish aura around it. I couldn't see it's aura after I turned on the lights. I have also been able to see a few things before they happen and sometimes it happens in my dreams, but I can't control it. One night I dreamed of sliding into a base and breaking my leg. I was really nervous because we had a world series tournament the next day. When it came to the game, I stole a base and broke my ankle. Though it was I year ago I remember the dream so clearly. Back to empathic abilities. Ever since the new year started I began to feel my empathic abilities start to fade away. Right now I almost feel as if they're gone. I can still see auras and see the future, but don't have empathy anymore. The lack of emotion makes me feel almost alone. I tried to feel the emotion of my friends, and it works sometimes, but others I only feel my emotions. Usually at lunch when I go to the court for recess, I feel and overload of happiness and now I feel nothing. Once I felt the sadness from a girl who had just gotten dumped. Even then in the whole court of kids I felt her emotion inside of me. When my friend was angry I couldn't feel his emotion, but when the end of the day came I felt lingering anger from him, but he was then happy. I can still feel emotions through contact though. A friend of mine would always poke me in the back and say "stab". Whenever she does she usually laughs and walks away either giggling or when I get her back, I feel a rush of excessive happiness. Usually if that happens on a day I don't feel happy, I have a better mood afterwards. I use to use this ability so nobody could sneak up on me, but now I don't feel their emotion until they're right on me. I've even tried to use my abilities on my crush. She was a few feet away. I didn't feel it at first, but I felt how mad she was. I was only five feet away from her when I tried this! I've even tried this on the teachers at my school. I don't feel their emotions until I'm next to them. It's not even a strong feeling either! Can anybody tell me why I'm losing my abilities. Also if could tell me how to control and channel my powers (I can control them half the time) that would be great.

How old are you? Abilities tend to fade the older you get. ALso your gift may just be evolving. Wait a little longer and then if it hasn't gotten better reach me here

I have been losing my abilities slowly over the past few years... My Husband and I were discussing it this evening and he said to 'google' it... Never thought for a moment... But here you all are! This story hits the mark for me and a comment that I saw on another site also spoke to me... Not sure why I am having difficulties (had a stressful few years to be honest) but after years of complaining about my abilities and wishing they would just go away, I find myself now missing them... I will be making an effort with Chakras,light,etc. Effort I guess being the key ingredient. Perhaps I was enjoying the 'solidarity' for awhile but now its time to expand my horizons again...

I'm really enjoying reading all the insight. I keep getting those Aha!-Makes-total-sense! Moments. I didn't have this kind of support base so I was one of those born this way and learned the hard way. Thank goodness as a teen I was able to come out with my mom and found out that it runs in the family and she actually knew already because of things I'd do and say as a toddler/kid! I couldn't imagine dealing with teen issues and this gift. You're a wonderful community and I'm glad I found you.

I have done nothing in the past few days, but now some of my empath abilities are back. And Mubashir, I can sometimes see my light as light purple or a deep blue. I was not here on the 17th due to a field trip. The way one the bus. I felt bored and tired like everybody else, but I stayed up all the way to Iowa, Louisiana (we were going to Houston, Texas for a talented art field trip) On the trip while we were at the MFAH (Museum of Fine Arts Houston) I was sitting on hard steps near my friend (to keep identity safe his name is Bill). I looked at my other friend (To keep name safe I will use Mandy) I had the feeling that I liked Mandy. I had the feeling like I was going to ask her out. Well, once we get back on the bus I find out that Bill asked out Mandy ❤. That's why I ended up switching seats 3 times (mostly). On our way back, going to Beaumont, Texas. I was sitting behind my old friend (to keep name sae I will use Hannah). I sat behind her. I had her in a class before and didn't like her. I was sitting next to a person I didn't know, but I knew he didn't like her. I could feel Hannah's emotions. It was an overload, way more than I could take. I started to joke around and be the real me for the first time in a long time. The three of us were laughing our heads off when my other friend (will be Ashly) told me to smell her hand. I didn't see it coming. She said it smelled like brownies. To me it was more like cupcakes. He hand was doused in whatever co I sarted coughing for like two minutes. It was a rush of scent and cold air at the same time (Very painful do not try it). After we got to Beaumont, we at pizza at Cici's. I played a game in the arcade when the talented art teacher called us all out. I ended up with a useless coin. When we got back on the bus, My friend (will be Kevin) sat with the guy I really didn't know. I ended up with Hannah. To let you know (if it isn't stated or clear in my experience) the closer I get to a person the more of their emotions I feel. We were on a charter bus and like a couple of inches apart. I did my best not to touch her (empathic abilities is the reason as it is stated in the experience) I almost did it, but one second passed where her leg brushed mine accidentally. I felt manny different emotions on the bus, but hers totally blocked them out. I felt a rush of exitement and happiness. I felt like I was there for an hour when I was there for a second (time differs on contact depending on the emotion). Now I have the problem of if I like her or not. I haven't seen her in the past two days. I just hope something doesn't happen like that when it isn't her or a person I really don't like. I have been meditating though. Meditating: 1, No control: - (not really sure how much times I couldn't control my powers. One quick thing though. I think I can control my brothers supposidly weak minded cat. I told him to get off a stack of textbooks and the cat did. My brother told him to move, but her didn't. I told him (the cat) to come on. He trotted next to me until we got to our room. It was weird and funny at the same time.

Time for you to focus more on your self and what needs to be worked on within you... This is not bad, it just means things are going on within you and its taking a priority. Take some time and relax, the feeling part of you is very much intact. I read that you are worrying about things that will work themselves out if you just give them the chance. Young people are a flood of emotions, and very distracted by what's sorrounds thier energy fields. If you call upon a higher power, now would be a good time to quiet your inner chatter (meditation,prayer,conversation with your devine parent) and teach yourself to listen for the devine music over the crowd noise. Youre going to be alright... Blessed be, Ladyhawke ❤

Hello Luzon, like the others said, you are not 'losing your ability'. Empaths are born 'wide open' but with no one to teach them about these abilities, things start to get frustrating around the early teenager years. Often, the subconscious 'protects us' from this confusion and frustration by 'turning off' this ability. I've known people who were able to master this quickly and easily. Myself, my empathic ability dropped to about 10% when I was about 13 or 14 and I didn't really feel 100% again until I was almost 30.

The good news is that it doesn't have to be that way. Like Mubashir said, meditation is GREAT! Just find a quiet place where you won't be disturbed, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths to relax, and imagine seeing your energy. Imagine watching is flow around you, and around the room - almost like it was smoke. Then imagine "telling" it to go to one side of the room, then imagine seeing it go there. Do this everyday if you can. After a week or two, start experimenting around your friends. Just picture in your mind seeing their energy - like smoke - and imagine seeing it flow around them.

This may sound weird, but it REALLY helps when you start to feel something you don't want. All you have to do is imagine it as smoke flowing out of you and into the ground - deep into the earth. This is just my personal technique. I hope it helps!

Well jasonA is right about your empath ability. Its more like you forgot how to use it. But if you want to improve your abilities. The best way to do it by meditating. I don't know much about the use of this term empath but revently wild animals are attracted to me more and more. I keep my spiritual field always happy and bright. To test it, I simply said hi to the wild dog in my mind and he came to me and started playing. People were watching and I was kind of embaressed. Lol I say keep happy and good thoughts in your mind and meditate. Thats one reason I can easily tell about a person and his or her background. Whether its good or bad. Take care and bye. 😁

Hello Luzon I have great news you aren't losing your ability to feel peoples emotion you just haven't learned to control it, learning to control this ability opens much more doors to developing other abilities, I'm also an empath and iv'e been training for a long time to control it so much you could feel peoples emotions clearly by just looking at them no matter if its 10 feet away or walking down the street. You are ok you just need to exercise that muscle and you will see so much possibilities.
