Empath abilities...

Post # 1
I discovered I am an empath. It's preety cool. Although I don't know when to trust my feelings, because it confuses me, if it is mine feelings or someone's else feelings. I have a problem with that.

I can feel people's feelings from far distances too. I was talking with one person from a country away through texts and I was able to feel his feelings sometimes. I also was able to feel another person's feelings from another continent. Through texts. But also when I wasn't looking at texts.

This can be possitive and hempful but at some point it ends up tiring. Because it is like you deoend on other's emotions and don't know yours. For instance some min.ago I got someone feeligs from away and because I didn't like it I feel sad. And if I read messages again, I get again the person's feeling. So I have two feelings at the same time, it's annoying.

Is there any way to feel people's emotions as an intuition, and not feel them as being mine? Because that's how I feel them only. When I say from intuition like I know their feelings but I don't feel them as they are mine.

But also I want to develop a lot my empathy and also of course to learn shield my self. I want to live on my emotions a bit too. But how do I shield my self?

You could "train" your emphatic abilities, so you could separate the emotions of others from your own. This also increases the emphatic ability allowing other things such as the depth of people's emotion

I feel a little this way too. not as extreme as i don't pick up on strangers thoughts or feelings. I was talking to my nieces friend the other day, i had never met her before and we was just having small talk but i could sense a deep sadness and pain in her eyes although she was smiling and laughing. I asked what was up? and she was totally baffled by it, i could just tell. She had been suffering from depression and eating disorders and after i told her that i could sense her sadness she completely opened up. She cried and i cried with her and it was a very strange and healing experience. It is a beautiful thing to have such empathy and you should really try to work with that because so much good could be done with your gift.

Grounding can be helpful to get rid of others, and yours, negative energies. Then I suggest learning some shielding techniques.In time, you will get a grip on this. Good luck!

practice learn where the emotions are coming from and separate them from your own they can be overwhelming from time to time. once you get that under control you can use that gift to help others. just be careful some people are able to cause spikes when you try to help, high school was when my ability kicked in i could feel my friends anger from the cafeteria while she was coming down the stairs when i tried helping she snapped and it caused a spike of anger within myself as well as sadness. best to own it than have it own you

I'm a developing empath(haven't mastered this ability yet),I can also feel peoples emotions even from far away

To stregthen this ability,keep practising,I practise reading my friends emotions at times,most of the time I'm right and few times wrong,try reading your friends' minds and asking them if they feel the way you sensed

As for protection it helps to wear a crystal necklace,I often wear one to keep away negative energies/emotions,try getting one with all crystals around it

Keep practicing shielding so negative emotions won't get to you. Imagine you are in box made of mirrors (mirror sends emotions back to sender) as much as possible when you get overwhelmed by anxiety, fear, sadness and other negative aspects. Keep hematite near you.
Observe people and try to read their mind. Don't guess just try to feel what they are thinking. Empathy often comes with telepathy (or at least it came in package with it in my case), so not only you pick up on other people emotions thinking they are yours, you also pick up on other people's thoughts thinking they are your own. Practicing reading minds helps you learn how to control both and how to recognize 'intruders'.
Also i don't know how to explain it but as empath you should be able to take on someone's fear or anxiety and turn it to your advantage (ex. turning it into feeling of calmness within your body, or exchanging this person's fear for energy you can use later). It's very intuitive process, but you should know how to do it once you will become more aware of your empathic skills :)

(when it comes to me i have similar problem but with positive emotions. Ex. Like i know i don't have crush on anyone but somehow i feel like I do? so i never know if it's me having crush or someone crushing on me or someone crushing on someone else and me picking it up. Or suddenly i am happy and start acting like a over excited child, when i have no reason to? - most people don't complain about positive aspects but even the positive side might be annoying too)

The one thing I can probably say will help, or maybe not, would be to take the Myers Briggs personality test and discover if you fall under the rare INFJ category (As I) and study the theorim, if you are already empathetic and you do fall under such category, you should be running to the books. If you check it out you'll know what I mean. If you don't fall under INFJ it is more likely that you should take practition time to understand your knowledge better.
