How Do I Deal With Being An Empath


I know that I am a Empath and I am trying to see if anyone could help me learn to block other people's emotions for I have a hard time being around people or big crowds, like I don't like going to the store for I start picking up on everyone's emotions. I just want to be able to go to the store without feeling what everyone else does. So If anyone has any kind of techniques and is willing to share them with me I would greatly appreciate. I am just trying to find some ways to help me deal with all these emotions that I feel so if anyone at all has anything please respond to my request for I do get tired of locking myself in the house all day everyday to avoid having this happen to me. I am just so tired of feeling everyone else's feelings and emotions and sometimes not being able to tell whether they are minute or someone else's. I have a hard time sometimes for my husband wants to hold or touch me and I just don't want him too for I know I feel his stress from work as well so this is also affecting my relationship and I don't want to push him away. So if anyone could help me find ways to cope with this! How do I block other people's emotions? How do I know when they are minute or someone else's? How will I be able to use them if I block them? These are some of the questions that I need answer's too help me through this. If anyone has any other ways of coping with this I am willing to listen an ready to learn so I can turn it on and off when I need to so it don't affect my daily life.

Spiritual warfare is essentially two opposite energies that are in a tug-o-war. When someone consciously chooses to side with either energy, they place themselves in the middle of this tension. The more they progress for that side, the more obstacles they'll have to face in order to be worthy of the next level, so to speak. This warfare is real but it affects those who want to advance in spiritual ways, or those that have sided with either energy. It's not an open arena, where we all battle demons for no reason. The normal person is generally warded by such manifestations and unless they take those mental barriers off, they are not "fair game" in this warfare.
So a dream like yours could be either a simple dream, or a spiritual battle, it depends where you are on your individual path.

Is there such things as spiritual warfare?
I experienced fighting with a dark spirit when I was asleep- it was heavy, strong, and the fight seem to have been going on forever. I was tired of battling this spirit. Finally, I called out "God help me." As I did, it disappeared. I never experienced it again (?) Have anyone experienced similar?

I am also an empath and about 3 years ago I was feeling the same way you are and asking the same questions you are asking... I did so much research online, buying books, talking to others whom shared the same gifts as myself but in the end I found the only way to control your gift is to: get yourself a protection shield and learn how to use it, these are great for many things in our field... When you are talking in smaller crowds or with people one on one try crossing your legs and your hands, and don't make constant eye contact with them these may sound petty and questionable but trust me they help a great deal... If you would like more in depth info contact me via mess or email I can break things down for you and get more in depth with the things I have talked about above... Plus I would enjoy talking to someone with the same gift as myself... Thank you, melissa

The answer is, Self-Reflection and Self-Realization.

An undeveloped Empath experiences the emotions of others and labels them as their own. This is why every Empath is to examine and define their emotions.

The best tip is to fully understand yourself on an emotional level. What makes you happy? What makes you sad? What makes you angry? Why are you sad? Why are you ecstatic? The next time you experience an emotion, define the reason behind that emotion. Why am I experiencing "this emotion"?

Getting to know yourself on an emotional level will help define the emotions of your own to distinguish the emotions those not of your own. This is very important to fully develop your abilities as an Empath, because most Empaths have many psychic gifts. The gift of clairempathy is just the more conscious one. Once you fully develop your clairempathy, another gift will manifest.

I wish you the best of luck.

I agree with Amanda. Everyone has their own energy. I see auras and energy and am especially amazed about it. Just know that bubble of your energy is around you, and that's who you are. Everyone else has there own. Nothing can break through your bubble, and your energy. Simply focus on you and everything you are doing. Also, you can pray. Pray that you can only handle so much, and you only want to recieve a healthy amount of your gift and you want to have more control over it. I used to suffer from really bad headaches around big crowds, not feelings, but physical pain. So I prayed to Arch Angel Michael to tone it down and just let me choose when and when not I use my gift. It helped a lot. Sometimes I still get little ones, but hardly anymore. I hope your relationship with your husband get's better, as with everyone else. Maybe, you could talk about it with someone you trust and you know is open about it... I wish you the best (:

Thank you guys so much I am going to try for I am tried of hiding from other people's emotions, and my husband want's to go and do things, but he don't fully understand how I feel he understands to a point. I just want to take control of my life instead of emotions controlling me! And if others have any more ideas of how to control my emotions I am here ready to learn and try whatever I have to to take control of my life...

I am a Empath just like you. I know how it feel to feel every ones else feeling but your own. I found out how to block some peoples emotions not all of them but some. This might help you out.

When I am in a crowded place I focus on my energy or aura. Then picture my energy as a bubble around me then I tell my self this bubble of energy is strong and nothing can get though it. Not even other people emotions. This works for me then I am not as drained of energy. Because big crowds drain you really fast and your body freaks out a little then you get grumpy with people. But you put a fake smile on. I really hate when they day is going good then, and then there a person who has lot of negative energy it like hitting a wall. I hope this works for you. You can also change it too. Are energy is vary strong but you have to believe it and have to be strong will. Don't let Other people emotions get in the way because this you life. Live the way you want to.

I wrote an article about that very thing under the articles section:

Hopefully that will give you a few helpful tips. I very much understand how you feel. It's difficult sometimes. You'll get other good tips from other readers, I am sure.
Be well.
