I am having a bit trouble understanding your explanation. Are you saying a spirit caused one of your electronics to explode? Because this is not possible.
I do not understand what you mean by your spirit has left your body. An empath is define as one who is capable of taking the emotions or feelings of others without having to go through the actual feeling itself. Please clarify your response.
I can understand that being an empath is hard, I really struggled with it when I was younger. My defence then, which I dont recommend, was to shut myself off and not feel any emotion. The side effects included loneliness, depression, an explosive temper and an outburst of magic more recently. Magic is connected to emotion for me, be it determination, pain or excitement. You could try to misdirect the attackers by imagining that you are invisible, or that there is a barrier around you.
