Walking The Line Between Useful Skills And Useless


When I was in college, use to read tarot cards. I was actually quite good at it. However, I began to fear my ability to read them and cast the skill away. Over time though, I missed the control I had.

It has been several years since I have used them.

This leads to the heart of my story. I do not know exactly if what I am is psychic. I have a great skill for reading the emotions of people. I can tell exactly what people are feeling when they come into the room. Although, I tend to "capture" for lack of better words those emotions. It is as though, I mirror them on to myself and I feel emotions that are not mine. This is quite frustrating because it sometimes leaves me with being unable to distinguish my own emotions from other people's emotions.

I am wondering if this is something that is exclusive to me, because I feel very lost with how to handle this situation.

The other side of my story is that I can feel charges of energy on the air. I am very sensitive to when something is happening in my world that is negative. I could be having a terrific day off from work when I have this horrible feeling. So much so that my hands will start shaking and I will feel physically ill. Only later to find out that my project went wrong. Although, it is not exclusive to work related feelings, however I seem to only be able to pick up negative experiences.

Recently, I have had this feeling like that air outside is charged. It has a feeling to it that leaves me feeling kind of dazed. It is different then anything else I have experienced before. I ran though my usual routine of checking on the lives of everyone else whom is important to me. However, there was no problems. The feeling has faded. However I am left feeling uneasy about what caused that emotion.

Partly out of fear of my own abilities, I come to you today. I do not know if you can advise me. I can understand if you think it is farfetched because I know how it sounds. Thank you for taking the time to read this, I am honored.

For some individuals, they can use a stone, or
Amulet, and pray, or use incense to set the item.
Clearning it at night and resetting it.

Other individuals use meditation to align with
Higher energies. Set their intent by
Visualizing or imagine by sensing/feeling a shield.
The shield can be one, or many layers.

Some individuals say when using layers of shields they
Feel cut off. And if that happens use a clear bubble, or
Clear wall.

In essence when we are empathies we are much
More suceptible to energies.

The law of transference comes into affect everytime
We interact with another human being.
Which can be during our day job, to include counsiling, or
Sensing stress of the people around us.

With this interaction I believe at the end the energy will go into a recycling system and close into mother earth. But that is my thoughts, I believe others
Have different methods.

I have found that Fossil is a good stone to clear myself, and as each of us is quite unique. Others have recommended Black
Obsidien, but with Black obsidien one has to fill it with another stone, since the Black can bring out our shadowy self.

I prefer to use clear crystals, to bring in light
To rebalance.

Another method when sensing thoughts/emotions, is to
Ask, "Is this my thought"?
If it is not mine I send it to the universe for love and light for healing.

During the day say affirmations that you only hold
Loving, and helpful thoughts, Fear, anger have no place in you. Make it short!

Good journey

PathR and Krislove,

I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you comments. They really mean the world to me and I feel better knowing there is someone who has constructive comments.

Do you have any suggestions for resources that might help me learn shielding? The more I ponder the thoughts that you made the more I feel like I probably need it.

I cannot tell you how huge a meltdown I had today. I do not know whose emotion it was, however it was just awful.

Suzune the idea of feeling others emotions is
Referred to as mirroring technique used in healing.

You sound as if you are attuned, and I encourage
You to press past the depression that can plague
You. Your heart is right and pure in motive.
So press your will as a will of iron because this
Ability to move forward is in you.

Most Empathies have the knowing or dreaming of
Events. And that has been my story for years.
Eventually you realize that the Power Greater than
Our self, is allowing us to see the present or future.

As Krislove stated about shielding that I have found
Helpful, also meditation and aiming to strengthening
The aura and Chakras is a strengthening to us and
Bring balance.

Hi, I used to get this when I was younger and in less control. I used to soak up people's negative feelings and thought they were my own. I used to be miserable at work, I wanted to be isolated from everyone. I eventually built an emotional wall around me and others, unintentionally of course, because it was the only way I could deal with it. I would often come across strangers as cold, but it's only because I refuse to open myself up. It wasn't until recently that I finally realized that I was taking on other's feelings. I never really had any bad episodes where I would shake and stuff. I guess I was fortunate in that.

Sometimes I feel like an actress, all it would take is for me to wondered about someone, and I would feel like I know this person. It's like their life just flows into me and I suddenly understand what this person is going through, why they're feeling this way and what I can do to help them feel better.

There are no useless skills. You will find out why you have each gift one day. One day you will be thankful for having such a gift. I can smell things at times and it seems like a strange thing but I know that one day it will come in handy.

I would suggest you learn some shielding and centering techniques. This is how I learn to let down my emotional shield. I realized that every time I felt bad, it wasn't me, I simply had to re-centered myself. Word of advice, shielding is good, but the most important thing here is centering. For me shielding kind of led me down a dark path, as I became kind of paranoid of everyone around me, the point is not to become obsess about the energy around you but to know that even if these energies come into your space, you can find your way back to who you really are. I have this smile that I do as a trigger to center myself. It could be simple or it could be complicated. You're the only one who can decide and you have to experience it in order to believe in it.
