Hello nature freak. I've known people who've asked for the volume to be turned down on their receivers, and they have had the request granted. And I've heard of people who instead of turning back the tide learned less exhausting ways to channel it. What a challenge. Do you believe there is a reason you've been given this reponsibility? I can't help but believe it is a credit to you; that you should be drawing strength to master this gift from the mere fact of being entrusted with it. Someone up there apparently has faith in you. Pray for guidance and believe that you are being guided. Take care of your body and keep feeding your soul. I want to tell you that I'm impressed with what you already understand and the grace with which you've handled the rapid development of your abilities. You are going to find the support you need if you make the need known.You've already tapped into it with the reponses from the other gifted and experienced people on this thread. You're doing marvelously!

Question for aramasamara; I'd love to know what you mean by your statement "empaths are the best at mimicking others". That really grabbed my attention. Has it anything to do with demonstrating your understanding to the source of your experiential information? (Hows that for a comletely spontaneous pseudo-psych term?)
Hyper-sympathy? Acting out relational solidarity? Thats all directed at the source you are reading. Or does it have something to do with fitting yourself to someone elses shadow, so to speak, and being confused as to why? (Can I clarify my confusion further here or is it confusing my clarification?)

Something that some empaths don't realize.

Empaths are the best at mimicing others.

Which in turn can make them the most liked... Though at 'mimicing' others you need to be able to show your own individualistic properties, with other people's emotions floating around it can be hard and you can be asbored in their emotions and life because of it.

Make sure you always stand true to yourself, especially for empaths... Observe but don't be so absorbed.

Oh, I know exactly what you are going through. My empathic abilities developed faster though, I am 13 and have just gotten these abilities. I walk through the halls at school and I am overwhelmed with emotions. It is crazy. No one but a couple of my friends know about this ability though, so I can avoid the whole "friek!" thing. I get really depressed at the death of animals also. In movies I don't care about the people, I only care about the pets. My friends find that sad. 😁 I also love nature. I seem to go through the same things you do. My abilities developed in about the same order as yours. Just know that you aren't alone in this! Good luck! 😆

I have the same feelings.
I can't tell the weather though.
I just get feelings between living and nonliving things.
If you can help tell weather I am an emapth or not please tell me.

I'm also an empath. I have never just guessed someones mood, I always feel their moods. Which is bad in some cases like for example, my sister gets angry easily and as soon as she does, I get angry and then the situation increases and goes bad real fast. But in most cases its fun to have.

I have never felt like a freak and have always been happy with who I am (I'm 15 by the way). I have a friend who wishes he was as intuitive as me and that's funny. The same friend is my partner whene it comes to training abilities (mine have always been better than his).

My artistic outlet is writting. Mostly poems. The supersensitivity is great for that.

Even before that I had these abilities, I have never really fitted in but it didn't really bother me.

Anyway, good luck with your stuff.

thanks, GlendaSC,
I found a niche and it's in art. Mine drawings are very unique and different. I am also in a selective singing class. And I understand perfectly I am not much of a talker. But thanks for the help. This site has helped me realize I am not alone.
thanks,

I am sorry you feel so over whelmed. I feel the same way on a regular basis. I go to school, get so caught up in other emotinos the second I am around them or see them.
It drives me crazy sometimes. I want to be happy, I want to be me. But it is part of me and who I am. I hope you realize that too. It is that sensation thta is part of who you are.
I jut turned sixteen in Dec. But I feel a lot older already. You feel all these things that change you.
I know its hard, but someimes you have to step back. Not try and block the emotion waves coming at you. Let them enter you, and pass on. Like go through you. Another thing can be to help them, even though they will refuse it most of the time. Just a smile or hello can brighten a day ever so slightly.
And I think it is human nature to feel so close to nature. It doen't force things upon s like other people do. It just is.
So don't feel like a freak. Suprisingly there are so many olut there, the normally people are the minority, even if no one aknowledges it or realizes it yet.
I'm sorry if I wasn't of much help, but I wish the best to you.

nature freak, as a 44 year old empath my many years of the same expearience has given me the same problems and issolations, and there are ways of switching it off or cooling it down until a time when you are able to best use your gift, if you look for a book on reiki healing, that will teach you to protect yourself from everybodys energy, since becoming a reiki healer I have found peace, hope a have helped, take care,mike.

thanks hollinor,
I am glad to know I am not alone, I was looking for a place where I can find people like me. Today my senses came in handy I got a new teacher and with out even knowing he was new I sensed he was nerviness. And as the class came in he put on that " happy face" some thing I could tell he was lying. In nature it is as though I am one with it, I can even breath at ease there. Is there any thing I need to know? On some days I wish I could pick up more on a person. Or if I'm sick I'm so sensitive to things... 😉

Oh honey, you are NOT a freak. I know exactly what you are going through. I'm just sad it took me 32 years to figure it out. I lived my life on the "outside" always looking in. I wanted to be a part of the crowd, but many people don't feel comfortable around me. And those that did wanted to tell me everything about their life history. If I had a dollar for everytime someone said, "I don't know why I just told you that!", I'd be a millionare. I know when people are lying, hurting, angry, sad, etc.

I dream every night, and about 80% of those dreams tell the future, or reveal some truth about someone or something. I am thankful that I have learned how to tell which ones are which. Some are not so nice, like when I dreamed about the death of my mother.

I LOVE nature. I feel so at home there. I can actually feel my spirit being recharged. I wish I could spend more time out there, but my life doesn't allow that right now.

I'm happy that you've found your way here so that you can find peace among people who share your gift. I can't tell you what meeting the people here and reading their stories has done for my peace of mind. You are among friends, enjoy!

thank, GlendaSC
At school I am labeled as "freak"so I just adopted the name nature freak. I am thankful to know I am not alone. I keep my grades up with most A,B's I also found out another name for me is a supersensitive... WOW! I wish I could meat more people like me. So I can know what to expect and what to do. My mother said I am "gifted" as well. There are not many if any people at my school like me [that I know of].

Dear Nature Freak,
You are not alone. Several are sensitive here, I think. I don't know how to help you despite my years, I'm 49 or will be on January 9th. I feel about a thousand though (or more haha!). I was sensitive very young too. It seems to be hereditary. My best advice is avoid sad places, and figure out first how to best get your college degree that will support you. Then, research more. You need the education to fully explain and support yourself, and to make your mom happy. She wants that. That is important. To us, her, and you. You are not a freak, these are just paranoid times, you are just gifted. It can help you. Work hard. I have always done that. It's the best thing. If you feel weird, work hard and count it as a gift. Later you might see it. I can't guarantee it, but almost - just struggling along like everyone else. Always care about others.
