Empathy

Postby Regholdain » Thu Jan 10, 2019 9:26 pm

How do you know that you are a metaphysical / paranormal empath versus just being emotional or receiving impressions from spirits? What does the difference feel like? I would like an example, or several, so that I can see something of clarification on this.

I only ask because I find more and more my reactions and responses as I type them and respond on these forums are hitting me very hard lately. Sometimes I get so sad or frustrated or just have such a strong emotional connection and I think, dude it's just a forum, what the heck? I have had some other incidents and some things I've noticed when around certain people (triggers for certain emotions), or when watching TV shows that mean something to me, and even a couple of anxieties about what my boss will do because of one thing or another at work. Hell a few nights ago I asked my spirits to help make absolute certain I wasn't being cursed, hexed, or evil-eyed because I felt so paranoid for no reason.

Maybe I just take this journey too seriously lately, and maybe I'm stressed by something and I haven't placed it. I dunno. But I am concerned. Normally I'm relatively chill, and maybe a little too disconnected. That said, I've always had a bit of a temper and been a bit jaded for various reasons and I've learned over the years to let go and be calm. My girlfriend has never even seen me angry, for the most part, so she has no clue what I can be like when really negatively motivated. Anyways. Point is, I'm trying to figure out if my strong reactions to things are me being sensitive emotionally... influence from my spirit family... or if I'm straight up having some kind of empathic experience. Cripes, I don't need that. LOL

I don’t know how to tell why you’re getting this input because I’ve always been affected by the energy of others, but I can tell you three fairly simple things that help immensely.

Grounding helps a lot to help regain your calm when the emotions feel too strong (good or bad—too much of anything, you know?) Brings me down from that physical anxious feeling of emotional or sensory input overload. This works whether what you are feeling is external or internal in source.

Shielding is a thing you should also probably start doing. Do it in the morning and reapply as needed. That will help cut down on what makes it in if the source is external to you. If you can tell that your shield is otherwise effective or that there is nothing wrong with it and you still have the overwhelm, then the source is probably internal.

And at the end of the day, a nice energetic cleansing in the shower helps hugely. You can do this just kind of in a full body way of feeling the day’s accumulated energies flow off you. Some people do this in a bath, but that always makes me feel like I’m stewing in all that stuff I’ve picked up, even though otherwise I love baths.

One specific thing that just kind of evolved for me over time involves wearing crystals. I have a stack of crystal wrist malas I always wear. Different ones for different purposes. Moss agate and obsidian for grounding, howlite for insomnia, lapis lazuli for depression, etc. And they do help me in what the feed me, energywise. But what I also noticed is that they tended to collect energy too. I can’t tell whether they absorb energy I don’t want hitting me, if it’s energy in excess of what I otherwise want or if it’s both. But cleansing those suckers in the shower feels like 5-10 pounds melting off my shoulders and neck down my wrist. Using any wearable, water safe crystal jewelry may provide a useful focus for your energy dump on its own too, if trying to cleanse energy from all over your body doesn’t feel effective.

Hmmm, some good points there. I have been "wanting" to change my meditation, grounding and shielding to a morning routine as I normally do this in the evening before communicating with my keep after I've wound down from work for a little while. It has been in the back of my mind that I really should do this as soon as I get up, as I do not perform any grounding or shielding in the morning. Dang it. I just really don't want to get up that early. LOL

As for cleansing, I have been doing the simple shower cleansing for several weeks now, at least every other time that I shower. Most times I shower in the morning, and I don't shower again at night (I feel it's a waste). When I do this I also ask for my Oceanid to come assist with the ritual cleansing, rejuvenating, and repair. It has seemed to have helped, and within the first few weeks of that my succubus (I) has done some chakra help of her own with me at bedtime. Not every night, but all of a sudden she'll be like "your solar plexus chakra needs work, just relax" or "there's a blockage in your root chakra".

I don't have a lot of crystal jewelry. Nothing with moss agate or obsidian. I do have a binding or two in my wish list and sometimes I get them as a full set of mala beads or a gemstone pendant. Maybe it's time for a special request.

I agree 100% with the above answers and it will surely help a lot of new members as they start to expand their own spiritual gifts, especially when they get hit with sensory overload.

Another way of looking at this could be :

- Your energetic vibration is in preparation of raising itself to your new found consciousness and the adjusting period is letting you know that there are still stagnant energies that are now becoming more easier activated, as soon as it comes into the vacinity of anything matching it in energetic vibration.

- You were always sensitive but now that you are expanding, it would make more sense that one of the ways you could naturally tap into the spiritual realm, was by way of clairsentience. It is just more developed, coupled with your newly acquired sensitivity, will make you more prone to picking up on things vibrationally out of alignment, because those things are still stagnant within your energetic vibration.

I hope this makes sense to you.

I am not a fully operating human for like two afters after I wake up. I’m which case I just do the grounding and shielding once I’ve come online a bit though definitely before I walk into work. So, if it’s hard to do the full meditation and thing in the morning, it’s okay to have some flexibility, I think.

I bet you could put in a custom request for a spell binding on a water safe piece of jewelry, crystals or no. I would make sure CH did it so you don’t accidentally cleanse the binding off though, lol! Their sterling jewelry has held up well for me in the past, but I also you could have them do the binding on something you already wear.

If you do end up testing out crystals, you might want to see what happens with any old clear quartz. It’s pretty much a universal donor among stones. It could go in a pocket. If you’re very tactile you could find it as a worry stone. It would make a serviceable stone for absorbing that you could then cleanse. I’ve also sometimes kept a selenite palm stone for holding energies, although I tend to use that as something I’m building energies in over time to use as needed, rather than absorbing things I want to get rid of. But it could do the same job, possibly.

Just spitballing here lol.

I'll have to think on some of these suggestions. What's odd is I also have lots of protection bindings and a couple that are shields. I need to dig back through their descriptions and see if there's some specifically designed for emotion and negative energy (I think there was). Maybe I need to work with one of them a bit more closely.

Either way moving grounding and shielding to the morning really ought to be done, if not as a full on mediation then at least something quick. It's a change that I really need to make happen. I've ignored it too long.

Thanks! Today, the whole spirit family and I learned that the most efficient way to get from Dallas to Houston was through Denver. What else do these wise airlines have to teach us? And how much shall they charge us for checking a bag as we plumb the depths of their wisdom? Inquiring spirits want to know.
