The many signs of being an Empath – You are not alone.

PsiZone log revamp from Ted

You may think you’re crazy or just oversensitive, but you might be really an Empath.

Often referred to as HSP or Highly Sensitive People, the Empath will pick up on the feelings and emotions of others around them as though it were their own feelings.

They are not the stuff of science fiction and they are way more common than you think.

You may be one… and not even know it.

Knowing you are an Empath can change your life.

There are many signs that you are empath and here are just a few. As I remember them or note new ones,

This is an ever expanding post. I will continue to add them to this list.

  1. You care too much about other people, even to your own detriment.
  2. Strangers will tell you their life story and say: I don’t know why I am telling you, but I feel I can. They also tend to offload their problems onto you and you may be too polite to tell them to stop.
  3. You will feel lonely, even when around others. The sense of loneliness of being an Empath doesn’t come from being alone, it comes from not being able to talk to others about what you are feeling and feeling there are no answers to your questions.
  4. You may suffer from attention deficit disorder. (ADD) You may easily get drawn into feelings and emotions that come up seemingly randomly. Next thing you know, you are somewhere else and you’ve lost track of what was going on.
  5. If you are naturally psychic, being an Empath will give you additional information about places, people and events.
  6. When someone else has a bad day, you have a bad day in sympathy.
  7. You take on guilt very easily, even for things that you did not do.
  8. You will do anything to keep the peace. Any tension will make you feel very stressed and you can’t relax until everyone else is happy.
  9. Even if you enjoy a particular activity, you won’t enjoy it if the people around you are not into it. You would rather do it on your own or something else.
  10. You can’t bear to see other people or animals in suffering or in pain.
  11. You can always tell when someone is lying. You are a human lie detector.
  12. You find it very difficult to say ‘no’ when someone asks you for help. Many Empaths get treated like a doormat. They don’t want to upset others or make them feel bad by refusing help
  13. You like giving surprise gifts and making others happy just for the sake of it. If they feel good, you feel good, even if it’s just for that moment.
  14. You suffer from anxiety for no apparent reason. Sometimes the feelings will be overwhelming, especially when something major is going on in the world. Stock market crashes are often a bad time for Empaths.
  15. You suffer from clinical depression and mood swings and have no idea why.
  16. You often feel overwhelmed by events and emotions, sometimes to the point where you short out and stop feeling anything at all.
  17. Holidays, such as Christmas, are a very bad time for you. You often feel sad and lonely.
  18. You will always give the benefit of the doubt to someone, just in case they really didn’t mean to say or do something you consider hurtful or negative.
  19. You may suffer from seasonal depression. Autumn might make you feel especially depressed.
  20. You might find you are very psychic, picking up on people and events before they even happen.
  21. You suffer from social anxiety and find it hard to be around people, especially if you feel you shouldn’t be there. Parties are hard and tedious and nightclubs are like a living hell for you.
  22. You want to save the world, but feel too depressed and despondent to do it.
  23. If you hear of someone who is having a hard time, or is unlucky in life or love, you want to just save them and make them happy.
  24. You cry when watching romantic movies, even if they are really bad ones, and you feel embarrassed about doing so.
  25. Old songs make you sad. You long for those past times, even if they were horrible at the time.
  26. You just know things. Even things that no one has never told you. You don’t know how you know them, but you just do.
  27. You don’t know where your feelings end and others begins. You may not even be aware that they are not your feelings.
  28. If someone tells you about their pain or sickness, you will sympathy pains.
  29. You feel constantly exhausted. Chronic fatigue is a reoccurring problem for you.
  30. You are drawn to new age things, especially alternative medicines.
  31. You are extremely creative, though you may feel embarrassed about sharing that part of you in case others reject it or make fun of it.
  32. You may well feel at one with nature. Cities are very hard to live in due to all the psychic pollution that is about.
  33. You are always seeking knowledge. You may not even know what you are looking for, but you look for it anyway.
  34. You daydream a lot. Go on adventures in your mind. This can happen anywhere and anytime.
  35. You can sense the energy of food. You can tell if it feels healthy or not. You are also drawn to bad foods that make you feel good, such as chocolate or sugary treats.
  36. People may consider you strange, aloof or indifferent.
  37. You may have difficulty urinating in public, especially if you feel under pressure. If someone is waiting, you will give up and try to find a place that isn’t being used.
  38. You attract sociopaths and narcissists into your life that will use and abuse you. They will convince you that you are the one who is wrong.

When people find out they are an empath, they ask: How do I know I am one? Generally, only an Empath will ask that type of question. Non Empaths do not care.

If you find yourself nodding along to the above traits, then yes, you are certainly and Empath. The good news is there is so much you can do about it. You can turn what so many call a curse into a blessing.

Help and resources are at hand and they need not cost you a cent.

Now that the best psychic apps have been listed, it’s time to get ready for your session. If you are one of the many people who have not been or not spoken with a psychic before, we have also come up with ways how you can prepare for your first reading.

Allot plenty of time

When scheduling your appointment, be sure that you have ample time before and after the reading session. If you are in a rush, you might get a blurry reading from your psychic as your energy will be displaced; you will be distracted by other things in your mind. When in a psychic reading, present yourself fully, mentally and spiritually.

Choose your questions carefully

Although asking yes or no questions such as “Will I be able to meet the one this year?” is a completely valid question, you might not get the best out of it. Focus on questions like “What can I do to improve myself?” or “How can I attract similar-minded people?” These questions and the answers that come with them may remove the blockages and finally pave the way to meeting your one true love.

Never be afraid to ask questions

Asking your psychic for a clarification is not a bad thing. If a reading is something you do not understand fully, let your psychic know and she or he will be able to expound on the answer. You would not want the session to end having more questions in mind.

You can take note

Recording your session or writing down some important notes are allowed. You can use these writings and recordings in the days to come to ponder on. Contemplate what you can do about the answers you have been given during the psychic reading session. You can start to allot more time relaxing, praying, and even exercising. You will feel a lot better, like a weight has been lifted off your chest. If not, you may talk to your psychic again for help. Once a session ends, it does not mean your communication with your psychic stops there.

Psychic Burnout – How full is your well?

How full is your well?

Empaths and psychics often love to give readings, help people and just generally make the world a better place.

When we are starting out, it’s exciting and we want to practice our abilities.

We might offer readings, healing or act as a medium to those who ask for it.

What’s more, people love receiving these kind things.

But what happens when you are dealing with more people than you can handle?

We can liken this to a well.

Your psychic energy is like a well, and the water in it is your psychic reserve.

People come with their buckets and keep on taking the water till eventually the level drops and you begin to become low on reserves.

Unless some rain comes or there is another source to fill the well, you will run out of water.

Now, most people will know that the well is empty and not try and take from it, however when it comes to psychic energies, they keep on coming with their buckets and trying to take what simply is no longer there.

As a psychic or one who is an Empath, you will also find it hard to say no, I can’t do this today.

What’s worse, people not only demand and expect you to perform, but become very angry when you don’t. If you tell them that too many people are asking for help, they will helpfully suggest that you should ignore everyone… everyone but them. And then instead of leaving you alone so you can just do what you need to recover your energy, they will insist on trying to fix you, often engaging you in pointless and frustrating psychoanalysis that you did not ask for and certainly do not need.

It’s like someone saying that they are sleepy and then instead of being allowed to sleep, they are kept awake by well-meaning people trying to work out why you are sleepy in the first place.

In the end, the well is empty, you have nothing left to give and yet, you still keep on giving it.

This is what leads to what is called Psychic Burnout.

It’s a debilitating state where everything is an effort. Where even simple tasks, such as reading becomes a burden and anything over a paragraph long will cause your mind to wander. You will see the words but not their meaning. You will hear people speak, but not comprehend the words.

If pushed way too far, you will find it can take days, week, months or even years before you’re ready to face things again and the well starts to refill.

The problem is that people take from the well and do not put anything back in. It makes it worse that many expect the well to be always full and become angry when it is not, even to the point where they will abuse, curse or denounce it.

So many take from the well and never give a second thought to it.

If your well is empty, be kind to yourself and take some time off.

If you are taking from the well, remember to put something back in. It doesn’t have to be much, just enough so that when you, or others need that well in the future, there is still something there for all to share.

House of horrors

This blog is part of series of my personal stories that I wrote many years ago. If you read it, it will be out of context.

My mother had these reoccurring nightmares for many years about a large house somewhere in the country. On Tuesday and Thursdays, there were certain rooms that it was a bad idea to go into. The days she did enter them, there was the spirit of two young children. One girl and a boy, who was evil. These dreams kept reoccurred for many years.

On the subject of dead children, the very thought always sent a shiver through me. Whenever certain topics on ghost stories are brought up, invariably, I’ll start to feel an immense sadness go right through me, and tears will begin falling. I don’t quite understand why that is, as yet, but certain subjects will trigger it. Dead children, especially the boy is one of them.

I remember when I first saw The Shining back in 1980. Those two ghost children scared the willies out of me, even though the rest of the movie was pretty average. There is little doubt that there was something in relation to children in my past.

Even now, when I think of it, I get a feeling of terror and sadness. When Mum brought up the subject just before they arrived, I started to think more on it. When I thought of the boy, I felt that terror, and the more I thought of it, the more I felt it was connected to my entity.

The boy was evil, I was sure of that. The girl wasn’t. She was just led. As I thought on the subject, A scenario unfolded. One that told of a massacre that happened one night at a large country mansion. The two children were told to hide up in the attic, but something made a noise, and they were found. They were murdered by someone with an axe.

I wasn’t there, but I was a local priest or something like that. I certainly had power from what I understood, and I went up to the attic to deal with the haunting that occurred there.

When I went up, the evil that was there manifested me, and as I wasn’t prepared, I panicked, ran and tripped and fell over the stairs and down to my death, landing on a spike of some kind.

The date felt like it was during the mid 1800s. I was also reminded of what a psychic who I knew once said when I visited her back in 95. She said she would be working, cutting meat or something, and all off a sudden, she’d have a past life flashback and the wall would be covered in blood.

At the time, I wondered what sort of event happened to cause that, but now I feel that she was one of the party present during that night.

Later that week, I mentioned it to a person on IRC. Let’s call this person Coco. She came across as a little psychotic, but she was a definite psychic. I mentioned only that I had a past life flashback with no details of what it was about. She went into automatic writing / channeling mode.

“Here you go,” she wrote. “Spontaneous. I don’t do this often. Watch and wonder 🙂 A raven flew down to sit curiously on a black wrought iron fence. It stared at an old ivy covered house set back a ways off Wigham Rd. Startled it flew up to the roof and cawed screeching. Just then a crashing sound in a high attic loft was heard. A bloodied face was seen by the raven through the high window. It flew and alit on the sill and peered within. Four axes were seen embedded in the floor boards”

I was very impressed. It all fitted in, even with the raven causing the noise that attracted the attention of the murderers. After that, I found that if I concentrated on the boy, I could pick him up. I tried to deal with it by reconciling with him, but it wasn’t too long before the entity just disappeared.

I had hoped that maybe the energy had dispersed and it had finally decided to give up. However, this wasn’t just a one off thing. I felt that this thing had been plaguing me for many lifetimes, and I guess it wasn’t about to quit just because I cornered it for a moment.
This entity, I felt, was a long running battle which had lasted through many life times. I had battled it only a couple of years before and survived. At that point, it wasn’t ready to give up.

In any case, once I had pinpointed the boy’s energy, it vanished along with the dreams.

That’s not to say that the entity disappeared along with that energy. It still continued to cause problems (a subject for another story if anyone cares) until one day, nearly two years later, I decided I had had enough and it was time to remove this being once and for all.

What occurred was the start of yet another battle. It also coincided with the opening of the Celestine Vision chat room where I met several people who picked up on this entity and validated what I was feeling. However, this isn’t what this story is about.

A few months later, I was chatting to someone in the chat room (I will not use her name, but let’s call her Mary). She said that her life was terrible and the dreams she was having were draining her and making her life unbearable. When we queried it, she went onto describe how she was having dreams about a large house with a room that held something evil. She was having the dreams a few times a week.

I asked her how long she had been having those dreams. She said for around two years. Just around the time my mother stopped having them.
Well, naturally, I couldn’t ignore this, and began to work with her on stopping the dreams, as they left her drained and depressed.

I felt that these dreams were being used to steal energy from Mary in order for it to be used for its own needs, which also explained why she was waking up always feeling so tired, drained and depressed.
She also mentioned something freaky. She said that she was walking into a building, when she heard someone call her name. She looked around and the only thing she saw a raven that was looking at her.
Considering it was a raven in Coco’s vision, I felt that was quite significant. I spent a little time trying to help her, but her life was really messed up. My main goal was to stop the dream, and the only way I knew how was to defeat the entity.

It wasn’t that long after when, I confronted the entity once more. This time it was in the chat room as I was holding a vision of it. Six other people came to help (one or two here might actually remember that) with the intention of destroying it once and for all.

I found out two things that night. One it was a strong as I was and two, I couldn’t destroy it as it wasn’t who I was. So the battle ended inconclusively

It was a few days afterwards when I finally managed to reconcile things with this entity. Perhaps an anticlimax, but it was the only way it could have ended. I don’t believe I’ve had trouble with it since.
As for the lady who was having the dreams, I went through a period where I lost touch with things at CV and lost contact with her. I didn’t know what has become of her and her dreams and her depressing life as she disappeared herself.

Then about two years after, I saw her in the room and she had brought her boyfriend along. She introduced me to him as the one who had helped her and stopped the dreams. (Me, not the boyfriend.)

This was news to me, but when I thought about it, reconciling the entity meant that it had no more need to use those dreams to gain its power. The best part was that her life had changed and she was much happier.

Many of these experiences are being used as a basis for some of my novels so if you happen to read one of them and it sounds familiar, that’s why.
