Developing And Naming My Abilities


My name is Rebecca and I am 18. Long story short I've come to find I am empathic. I can feel peoples emotion as if its my own. I don't like to be in crowds because I get bombarded with EVERYONE'S emotions. Music is my peacemaker. It tunes everything out and I often have to listen to it when I can't handle all the energy. When I first meet a person I can tell if I can trust them or not (now&future).Or if someones lying to me I can look into their eyes and "see" that they're lying. People come to me as if I'm a magnet because I can understand them. I often try to listen to my "gut" feeling that I get. It always seems to lead the way and when I don't listen to it I regret it, it is ALWAYS right. I also have had a handful of dreams of snippets of reality come true after I've dreamt of them. For example, all I can remember from one dream were these two Raccoons eating and then simultaneously they both look up and stare at me. A week or so after that dream I was at a friends house and her mom called to us to look what was in the laundry room. Two raccoons snuck in through the cat door and was eating their food. They looked up at me just like the dream same motions, same stare. That night something very traumatic happened. I also get a LOT of deja vu moments. I want to help people and I want to develop my abilities (whatever they maybe) into helping others. Please help me understand my abilities as well as how to develop them and please don't just say meditation I need specifics and details.

Hi Rebecca!

I too am an Empath and I was in your exact situation a few years ago. Empathy is a beautiful yet exhausting gift. In crowds I too would listen to music and try to stay away - it was too exhausting otherwise! I alienated myself for years because I just couldn't deal with people.

What I learned to do is shield. It's like mediation, but kind of different. And, since you asked for specifics, I'm going to give you a nice long description on how I was taught to shield.

First, find something from nature, like a flower or stick. Sit down in a calm and quiet space and in your hand hold the thing you got from outside.
Close your eyes and breathe deep.
Think about your 7 chakras, starting with the top one: crown, third eye, throat, heart, stomach, solar, and finally the root chakra. Be careful with the last one, it's the most important, as it is in charge of your stability.

Afterwards, think to yourself that there is an energy coming from the piece of nature you hold in your hands, flowing up your arms, down your legs, all over you, covering you in its protective light. Think "I ask for a protective shield, one that will only come alive if anything tries to harm me"
Keep this up until you feel like all of the energy from the flower/stick is drained.

You can also use your own energy and that of other human beings, but this will result in you/them feeling very tired, so there is no shame in instead using the energy of nature to help yourself.

Hopefully this helps you!

If you have anymore questions concerning your gift, shielding or anything else, please send an email to Vendettasiblings [at]

Hi Rebecca, I just wanted to say that I have had several similar expirences to as you concerning precognition and being empathic. I just put a very large writeup of my expirences on another post just a little bit ago prior to seeing your post, if you would like to read it, it is at While I have never personally noted any connection to the artist of music like Nicki mentioned above, I definately know what you mean about not liking crowds and having some people drawn to you as well as knowing instantly if you can trust someone.
I can't tell you how to develop your gifts, I don't expirence much precognition anymore, it is almost non existant for me now where it used to be a semi-common occurance.
As for your empathic abilities, you may want to see if there is any practical applications to it. For instance I learned in high school that I could take people's pain (which unfortunately would take up residence in me for a while). I packed that gift up and put it away for several years, but now it serves me very well (and many others) as a massage therapist. Since I have a bit of a sense about the body and the person's mental state, I get amazing results when trying to help people with their pain issues. This may not be related to your gift, I thought it may give you an avenue to look into though.
I will say that your high school and college years will probably be very difficult if you don't learn a way to "block out the world" since during those times you are surrounded by hormones, stress, change, and other confusion that can be overwhelming, especially if it isn't even yours. Good luck!

Hi. I'm nikki and also new to My empathic abilities. I Dont like crowds either but the more I focus the more I can concentrate on a specific person or emotion. For me the road hasnt been easy and being an empath is only the start. You can feel extremely lonely trust me. Just a tip. Be careful with the music. For me the Lyrics will manifest into emotions quickly and change what i'm feeling. Can also know the state of the person who wrote it. If you ever need someone to talk you you can message anytime at lisanicole21 [at] I also know a lovely woman on Facebook who is a medium and she helps with abilities and also has workshops and free tests.
