Empathy Troubles


I usually didn't have much troubles with my empathy about two years ago. I got along fine after I learned how to block out passing strangers emotions, both positive and negative, but as time went on, my range became wider and I could feel what an entire room was going through, all their cycles of thought mixed with whatever they were latching onto. To say the least it was troublesome to know what people were going to say or ask beforehand.

Within the last year my range has gone up again, and I can feel what only certain people are feeling from distance. It's not like I can feel absolutely everything within an x amount of mile radius, but I do feel things from far away. It's just those I've forged bonds with and who I speak with over the internet. I met someone last year that I had a very good connection with, we used to speak to each other almost every day until suddenly he stopped. He became estranged towards me after a few months and I still felt that the bond between us was still pretty strong. It took a few cloudy months to sort what was mine and what was his, and now that I'm clearer minded, I know that I'm picking up on a lot of his emotions.

For instance, tonight I know I'm in a good mood because of how I interact with others, then when I'm alone, it's like there's a clot of rage stuck in the pit of my stomach for absolutely no reason at all. It's almost like a signature how I tell the difference between the people I'm bonded with... Like a flavour or maybe different wavelengths of colour.

I do not wish to be bonded with this person anymore because of the way things are between us and I do not like knowing what kind of mood he's in and when. If there are empaths out there who could help, I'd very much appreciate. Same goes with telepathy, having very much the same trouble with sending and receiving. Kind of wish I could block it all out, but that would require being numbed from my own spirit, and that would be the death of me.

Hi CoffeeBlackSr, I definitely relate deeply to some of the things you've said. I usually feel emotion from people who are close to me physically, at least in the same town. But people who are close to me through a bond, like my family and best friends, I can feel emotion AND physical pain from. This is even though they are hundreds and even thousands of miles away from me. One thing I've noticed in two of the stories you've shared is that you mention connection of color wavelengths and emotions. This makes me believe that you have some form of synesthesia. I recommend you look into that. I also recommend you look in to learning shielding techniques to protect yourself from the negativity that you have been feeling from others. Best of luck and God bless. ❤

to norway357, I am the same way, I am empathic as well. I actually have some stories on here that share my experiences, would you like to talk about it?

And to CofeeBlackSr. Usually for shielding, what I do is imagine a white bubble surrounding me, and I can't feel any emotions.

It is nice to know that there are others out there who have these experiences to. I just recently found out that the word for what I have is empathetic. It so good to know I am not alone. When someone around me feels a terribly strong emotion, or any emotion for that matter, I feel it too. This can be very difficult when the people around you are feeling toxic emotions. It makes me feel sick and gives me extreme anxiety. I was wondering how do other people shield themselves? And, how do you do it. Also, I seem to know when something is going to happen, but it is usually not like I know a specific event or anything. It is all with feelings. At first I thought this just happened to everyone like oh I have a bad feeling about this. But it is so strange because it will be weeks before something happens and I just get this feeling. It's like I know that something WILL happen with this person. Then it does and I can always feel it before it is going to happen though I haven't been around the person. I am not sure if this happens to anyone else. I am all new to this so I don't know much about it. It was cool to read others comments about these things. Makes one feel less alone. 😳

Thanks guys, means a lot to know I'm not alone in the struggle. I took your guys' advice and so far its been working. I had someone break through my shield without much effort, but I guess that's someone else's natural ability to open others up to them. It left me bare and feeling the bond again, and what I was blocking from the guy overwhelmed me for about an hour. The meditation and grounding helped over come that speed bump and now I know where my shields are weak. I had them layered but I suppose there was a chink in the armour. I can't break the bond but I can tune out of it now... Apparently there is a reason I'm still bonded with him. I had a sort of healing weaved in the shield that kept his pains out and they jumped out at me. This is going to take some practise but my power stems from love and imagination... So far I've known no greater protection than the light I feel when love is present. Thanks again wouldn't have known what to do if I hadn't asked for help.

My,oh my. To think that I am also going through the same circumstances that you are experiencing right now. Good grief, we empaths are not alone on the matter.😁
Based on your story, it seems to me that you are much more inclined to your abilities than I am (I am still experiencing fogginess of mind state, you know:confusion of separating my emotions from THEIR emotions). So I guess, agreeing with the previous posters, psychic shielding wouldn't be that hard for you.
I advise Googling about it for there are many ways to do so. But how you do it is entirely UP TO YOU. Ine unique method of shielding would appeal to you and work with you efficiently unlike with anybody else, so I would suggest searching the method for yourself.😊
One example would be the method I picked. It just says to meditate and envision a shield around you---and more, it could be your favorite color. I am still trying to work on it, envisioning a green shield enveloping around me so...*smiles again*
As they say,"There are many ways to kill a dog".That applies too with methodologies on this matter. Just never forget to also consult your spirit guides if you have further doubts on whatever take you'll undertake.

Some people I know have created shields to protect their minds from picking up stray emotions or preventing other empaths or psychics from reading them. You'll still pick up things, its just you will have greater control over them and what a person could get from you and vice versa. Each shield is different, but basically you visual in your mind creating some sort of defense surrounding your mind, be it a brick wall, a waterfall, etc.
For connections that you have already made, you have to push with your mind and force them out, and again what type of force you use is up to you.
Sometimes however, such links are created for a reason and unless you know how to create one again, you should think about it before breaking it.
In this case it is probably fine, but it in others not so much.
Personally, my range so to speak seems to cover just about everywhere and everyone on earth, and breaking and creating connections I can do at will. That took many years of work though, and I still have trouble explaining exactly how to do it. Then again I have yet to meet a single person who could in a way that everyone even capable of learning could quite easily.

Can someone help me become empathetic? I am partially, like I can control my own emotions on command and I can sometimes feel others emotions, but I want to be able to feel others emotions whenever I want to. 😳

I am having the same problem, what I'm doing is either focusing on other things, or I start new links with others so the link to that person dies out.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

To get your abilities under more control, you could try grounding, shielding, and meditating. Shielding especially could help you block out others' emotions at times you don't want to feel them. However, I would recommend letting down the shield sometimes, just so your ability doesn't atrophy.

As for cutting your connection to someone, one way of doing that is imagining the connection as something, and then symbolically cutting it. For example, imagine the connection as a thick rope between you and that person and then mentally cut that connection. Or else, make a physical talisman for your connection to that person and then cut or in some other way ritually destroy that talisman.

Love is the law, love under will.
