I'm An Empath, What's Wrong With Me?


My name is Kelsey, and I'm a 19 year old empath. Some of my experiences are my hands getting painfully hot out of nowhere. Usually when someone is sad or upset, and when I touch them they feel better and my hands won't hurt anymore. When I'm out of energy and exhausted, they get ice cold and won't warm back up. It's usually a really tingly kind of feeling when they're warm, almost like they're asleep. I could out them in ice water and they're still burning. I know when something is bothering someone, and instantly I feel like 10x older and wiser, and I'll comfort them and listen and talk and do whatever they need, and I just know. I dunno. What to say I suppose. I thought I was just a good people person, but what I can sense before they even tell me is spot on with what they tell me they're feeling later on. Sometimes I feel everyone else's pain or unhappiness it makes my chest hurt with sharp stabbing pains. I went to the doctor and they did a number of tests, and couldn't find any reason or evidence for the chest pains. Other times I'll see someone and just want to break down and cry, some I'm overly excited and happy, some people I get extremely angry and bitter, it's all so conflicting, especially in places like malls or hospitals. I also see like. Distortions above people's heads. Like above them is darker, and messing up the atmosphere around them, almost like when you run your hand through water and it cleaves out. That's what it looks like. Other times I see little floating balls. They kind of look like molecules or atoms or maybe even dust. I ask my friends if they can see it too and they say no. Is this just some sort of ocular hallucination? Normal? I had gone to a psychic in early January and she had gone on and on about how I'm and empath and a wounded healer and yadda yadda, and then told me I was an Earth Angel. But I don't believe in God at all. And I feel like if I was an Earth Angel, I wouldn't be so lost. I just feel like a giant sponge for everyone's thoughts and feelings, and I don't know how to protect myself. It's so hard being in public, everyone just takes my energy and I'm exhausted in a matter of minutes. I really need a lot of help. I've been so lost lately. Lately though, I've felt stuck. My Dad just passed away on his birthday from cancer, and it was truly the worst experience of my life, and I've been dealt the worst kind of hand. Since then I feel, I don't know how to describe it, but broken? Like. I can't sense things as good as I used to. A month ago my step mom kicked me out after I came home to find my bed gone, as a "practical joke" on me. I don't live there anymore, but I feel guilty. That somehow I caused everything to go wrong in my life. And I'm afraid he's disappointed in me. There's been so much that's happened that I know isn't my fault, but I feel so much guilt mingled with my own depression and anxiety. On top of what everyone around me is feeling. I don't know what to do! How do I fix me? Is there any way for me to talk to my Dad? I really really need him. I'm not going to post my life story on here, it's much too long and I only tell it to people I feel comfortable with. But why is it that I can help others, but not myself? I try to meditate and work on me, but I just can't. Maybe I don't know how, or maybe I just don't care anymore. I guess I just feel really alone. Like no one else knows what it's like. What can I do to help myself? How can I know if my Dad is safe on the other side and able to talk to me? Can anyone contact the spirit of a deceased person at will for me on here? Can I strengthen my abilities once I get them under control? Thank you so much for taking the time to read!

It does go away with time. But that amount of time is based on you. The longer you let whatever is blocking you out, the longer it will. It's like a mind over matter thing.

I can contact him? How? Maybe that's what it is, a security thing. It goes away with time though right? I keep trying to use it but it's just like... A big wall. Does it help with like... Relaxation and like vacation time?

Since your dad died you don't feel things as well. I know what you mean exactly. I went through this really bad break up and since then my Empath feelings were gone. It was the lonelyest feeling of my life. But there is a fix to it. As cliche as it will sound, you just have to move on past the issue. Because what I found with me is that when I myself am going through a serious issue in my life my body shuts down my Empath side as a security thing. If my own body and mind is rly damaged, adding in anyone else's would be too much.
You also don't need anyone else to contact your dad. You as an Empath are capable of it alone. But, your going to have to get your self together enough to bring your Empath back to it's fullest potential. And once you do that. Just sit there once in a while, close your eyes, breathe and your concentrate on finding him. Trust me, it works.

I watch Chip Coffey all the time haha. Psychic Kids, Paranormal State, etc. Already friends with him haha. I've been to a psychiatrist already and they diagnosed me with severe clinical depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety. Well the psychic I went to only knew my name and birthday. And she was telling me things she couldn't possibly have known. Like things I've never told anyone before but written down in a diary. Like sometimes it's just so...ugh. Like I'll be in public and I'll be alright then BOOM it's like I get hit with a wall of... So many things. I could email you exactly what she said if you wanted... And thank you Celia. I'm free whenever you are:) You know my Facebook heehee. And yes! That's exactly what they're like! I've seen them since I was little but I just thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. And thank you Lalela, I hope he is:) I would never use like an ouija board or anything like that to hear from him... It would just be nice every once in awhile haha. Usually before I go to bed I sit down with his ashes and tell him about my day and ask him to do little things... Though I never get a response. However a few nights ago I was feeling really low and gave him a kiss goodnight and as I was walking out of the kitchen I heard a piano. I did that horror movie slow turn like:O?! Came back to the room and my computer was playing a country song I had linked that day on my Facebook which reminded me of him. My laptop wasn't on, and even if it was, it couldn't have opened up the browser, then the page, then click the video to start. Was so happy and surprised I was cryin.:)

The "distortions" around people's heads is there auras. And I figure you're a good person at heart... And the hands thing is related to focusing your energy (chi) into your hand and then putting it on to other people so they feel better or vitalized.

I'm sure your dad on the other side is safe and where he should be. He might be watching over. He will be proud of you so you carry on. =) Contacting the dead for information is not a good practice. It's dangerous because you may invite other things.

I think that "earth angel" stuff is just new world hokum. But yeah, you are sensitive. That's good! =)

I think HiggJay is totally on the mark. Empaths especially have a tough time just living in life, and it takes a mentor to teach you how to protect yourself, distinguish between your feelings and those of others, etc. If you can actually get Chip Coffey, I have total faith in him. He's a good dude, interested in helping empower you, not aggrandize himself.

As for the molecules of energy--I see them too. And others have said it too. Actually, I have seen several types. There are ones that I have seen (usually at night) that are like molecules with black middles. They are active. And then there are other moving particles you can see sometimes on a sunny day when looking up. You're not crazy (no matter what the skeptics say.) Most of this is ABOUT not dismissing all those small things that you've seen/heard/felt but just dismissed. As you acknowledge them, more of them become apparent. It is about attentiveness, acknowledgement, so trying to convince yourself you don't see/feel these things--just ain't going to work!

Good luck to you. It is a gift even though it may not feel like it now.

Oh Kelsey! I have a lot of this stuff to and I don't know what to make of it either. We can talk about it and try to figure it out together. ❤ it's easier when you have someone else. Just drop me a message and I'll reply when I can. If you want a quicker and more frequent response email me! I'm willing to help you any time!

Hi, you can see by my profile that we have some things in common. You can also see how I've dealt with it. I don't recommend my solution, except as a last resort. What I would do is first see if you can get help from someone like Chip Coffey (he's one of the psychics who helps out on the show "Pychic Kids". He has a Facebook page, and you may want to watch some episodes from the show, becuase there is a lot of educational info on it. Get evaluated by a REAL psychic, and a psychiatrist, because the dis-orientating nature of your psychic abilities may acutally leave you susceptible to psychiatric problems. I think doing both will help give you a roadmap of what to expect, and when to worry. I am 51, and only just started taking meds. I also ony just started speaking to a real psychic, and believe me, the relief you get when someone you don't know zeroes right in on your issues is amazing. It let's you know it's not in your head (well, actually it is), but it's not imaginary. It really takes a load off. I never tell them what's going on, I let them tell me (that's how you know they're for real), and don't let them ask you leading questions. A good one may need your birthdate, but many won't need anything. Son many people are afraid of the spirit world, but you just have to know it's already a part of our world- most of us just choose not to see it. Once you relax, and basically say, "Ok, show me!", a lot of things get clearer. It's not evil. Some spirits are dark, but the spirit world itsn't. With your being so young still, maybe if you get some help learning to use (and filter) your abilities, you will do wonderful things with it. If not, at least you'll be able to live with it, and not start medicating it with drugs and alcohol like so many others. Best of luck to you!
