Being an empath can present some interesting challenges in life… and it can even hurt… It is uncomfortable for me to be near someone who has just had some physical injury or surgery.. my body cringes and reacts to the pain in the other person… if they’ve hurt their thumb, my thunb will throb… although I may not feel thier pain very strongly, it is quite disturbing. Here is a letter from one of our visitors that explains just how disturbing being empathic can be.
I have issues with lights going off. It probably happens I would say an average of about 50 times a month. Sometimes it happens 10 times a night. Its all different kinds of lights. First started with street lights, then lights on buildings then lights everywhere, in stores, in my house, in other peoples houses, anywhere I go that’s dark outside lights go out.
That’s not the only thing though. I have a very strange sense when people are not there normal self. e.g. mad happy angry, sad, worried, nervous… Any type of emotion. I can call someone and all they say is hello and I immediately can tell there is something wrong and I ask. Sometimes they tell me, sometimes they don’t. More so than not. It’s like I can feel their emotions. I can tell when something is wrong. I HATE IT!!! I want it to go away. It screws with my relationships.
This isn’t the only thing though. When I was about 13 I spoke to my neighbor’s mom and dad in the garage of their house. She had passed away 1 year before that. I did not know that until a conversation I had with my mom took place. I was saying how I spoke with her and she greeted me with my name. Well, even if she had been alive, she had alzheimers since I was about 8. She could not possibly remember my name. That’s how it got started with my mom. Then she told me that she was passed for a year. Chills shot through me, my hair stood up and my skin chilled.
I can walk by a radio and static will follow my movements. I heard a voice inside of my last apartment the first day I visited it. What is strange is that I was holding my girlfriend’s hand walking through and we both heard it. It was not in English and it was a very distinct man’s voice. The apartments lights turned on and off by themselves the entire time I lived there. Cabinets and doors would open and shut by them selves. Both me and my x girlfriend experienced these things in this house so I know I’m not crazy. lol. I would hear foot steps in the middle of the night and voices and dogs barking and snarling. Needles to say, I got out of there as soon as I could. I’ve taken plenty of pictures within that apartment. In most of the pictures I found orbs of different shapes sizes and brightness in the pics. One of the pictures I counted up to 25 orbs!!!! If anyone is interested in seeing these please email me and I will share. This apartment was brand new I was the first occupant. From day 1 to the last day I lived there I felt like I wasn’t alone, even when I was. I only felt haunted one night the entire time I was there, of course I was alone and I might have been dreaming but for a dream…. it seemed VERY realistic.
I constantly have dejavu. Some instances last up to 1 minute of me being able to call out everything that’s going on. I have no control over them, but when it happens I know I’ve heard and seen these exact things before. I’m talking about EXACT conversation with people that I had just met in some occasions. I have guessed a persons set up of their house when I had never even been there. I explained where the TV was the door the windows the closets how big the room was. etc etc etc… I just met this girl and I was just joking around about it but then suddenly it became freaky and I scared this girl half to death. She thought I was at her house. It freaked me out too. I caught one of my xgf cheating on me because of a feeling I had. I’m 100% trusting with people until they lie to me. She of course had lied to me and I had a feeling she did it again and went over to some random dudes house and there she was…in his bed… I can tell when some one is lying probably 90% of the time. I can’t read peoples minds but I can read their emotions and piece things together to figure out what they are thinking. I answer people questions before they finish asking it. Sometimes I can answer a yes or no question before the person starts asking it. It’s like I know they are going to. and I say yes, then they ask me and look at me weird, unless they are use to being around me. If I tell some one I think I’m psychic or wtvr they ask me what they are thinking… I cant answer that question. I can never do something on command. So no one believes me. Everyone thinks I’m just full of it. I told people about the lights going off and how its linked to being psychic and a lot of people have witnessed that phenomenon. some still do not believe me though. I don’t expect them to cause its sounds FREAKIN WEIRD!!!! even to me. I do not understand what’s going on with me… but I would like some help to figure it out. There is MUCH more than what I’ve typed in this passage. I’ve seen things, heard things that are unexplainable. I feel like I might have an ability that I can not control. Help!!! My grand mother on my mother side had ESP. she has some VERY interesting stories but I will share them later, for right now I’m interested in figuring out what the hell is going on with me. John
Hi there John.. while reading your email.. I could literally feel your frustration coming from you… firstly what I want to say is I do feel very strongly you are actually an “Empathic” There are three phases or stages of being an empath
1st = you picking up others emotions… such as happiness… sadness… teary… etc all of what you said yourself,
2nd = is you picking up others pain.. in which we empathics do tend to pick up pain from others before they actually experience it themselves and we also tend to pick up the pain from others worse than the actual person does themselves,
3rd = we have what we call intellectual shape shifting… in which is us empaths tend to finish other people’s sentences and/or know exactly what another is thinking…
I personally feel very strongly that you are an empath John and hope this explains one part of your puzzle for you… I also would like to suggest for you to start grounding and protecting yourself (this won’t stop you feeling everything but will help lessen what you are feeling)…
You can also call on any Archangel John to take what feelings etc that don’t belong to you to take them from you… trust this will also work as it does….
I also want to say John that the reason I feel for the doors… breeze etc is because spirit are trying to contact you as in get a message through to you… now you may not be getting the message as you aren’t sure what’s going on… I can tell you that you are not crazy and to try and tell some people what you hear… see… think, feel is very hard as a lot of other people have never experienced what we ourselves have and do… so in turn others do have a very hard time understanding and having faith in us.. I feel this is the case until something happens…. something you say comes true, then you will find others believing in you. But personally, John, I wouldn’t worry about how others feel about your gifts… as I feel you have a lot of learning to do and also feel that you have a male guide coming to you… who is going to be a very powerful guide… Native American… and will be with you to help guide you on your path.
John I truly hope this helps you some….. sending you much love… health and happiness, blessings, Love & Light xxx Karen
