Young Empath

by Lady Savitri

I'm 19 years old and I know it's very common for people to believe they are different from others. But mine's not just beliefs, I know I'm different. I don't know how to say this but I take people's negative energy from them.

I don't mean to. And sometimes I can't get rid of it. But when I found myself wanting to know why this person is hurting, I touched them and got light headed. And when I left I felt miserable. And they felt better. I thought I was imagining it until a few of my friends mentioned it. One of them asked why I took there "dark" away, and I was confused. But with my history of depression, it frightens me, especially now that I can't control it.

I'm sucking people's feelings away. And even though they may feel better, I'm left feeling miserable!

When I was young, my cousin was afraid and scared at a particular moment and so she begged me not to leave her. I promised I wouldn't. That night I had a dream that I was in her "Dream world" and she was showing me around. When I woke up I made the comment "see I didn't leave you" without knowing at that time that we had the same dream. And then she said something about the dream and I knew it was the same one I had.

I wonder though, if it was a dream walk because often, I see people in my dreams when they're hurting and call them and sure enough they are, exactly the way I dreamt.
It's not only this. Some other strange things occur, like when I touch something (plants, trees, animals) or someone, and if they have a cut or scratch or headache, I tingle in that same spot they are hurting.

I can touch objects such as rings and other personal items and know something about its previous owner.

When I am angry, I shock things. And when I'm really angry at someone, something bad happens! I don't want to be uncontrollable! I just want to know if someone else can relate to this, or knows how to control it!

Stand Under A Tree
by: Anonymous

Hi Savitri, I have been taught by my guru, to stand under a large green tree, it absorbs the energy that have been transfered to you, stand, relax, and see the tree absorbing the energy.

Another way is to lie on your back, see yourself lifted above the earth, relax, and you will see many ''travellers'' ask the question, can someone help me? One of the guides will come to you
when you see that person in your mind, relate the problem that you have, continue to relax, you may fall into a sleep, and when you awake, dont just get out of you bed, relax and the answer will come to you, the answer to this, and any other problem that you may have.

I know what you mean
by: Anna

I feel the same thing to. I'm 15 years old and I can see auras, absorb emotions, heel my own pain, transfer my pain onto another person, sense spirit energy, and control weather (mostly wind and rain). I noticed my gifts when I was 7 years old. That's why my lucky number is 7. Since then I have been practicing to make my abilities stronger. I practice to control them too. Before I learned how to control it, I would absorb emotions unwillingly. But now, I can keep myself from do that. It just takes a little time and practice. To control it, all you have to do is think with your mind weather you want to absorb energy or remove energy. Like I said, it just takes practice.

Accept Yourself
by: Anonymous

I know what you mean by when you get angry bad things happen to those that annoy or hurt you. It is scary and you feel guilt but you should not. It is not for you to judge yourself and feel strange or bad about this phenomenon. Getting angry is better for you than depression.

you can drain out negative energies that you pick up
by: Anonymous

Not to scare you, but you have a pretty good reason to be worried. I know someone who does healing work that is a combination of massage, and psychic ability that involves empathy. These aren't her exact words, but when she works on people, she "opens them up" and afterwords she has to drain any negative energies out of herself to keep it from effecting her. One time she wasn't able to drain it out for a while and it built up inside of her and physically hurt her.

I'm not saying this to scare you because what you have is an amazing gift to heal others, but you need to take care to heal yourself as well. My friend would sometimes do meditation with crystals that absorbed negative energy or would go out into her garden and stand there for a while with her bare feet in the ground. Those energies can't stay in you unless you let them.

I also know what it is like to feel different. It started when I was 6 years old. I am now 58 years old. I wish I could say that the feeling of being different goes away but it doesn't. Unless you know other "real" psychics that you can talk to, you will always feel alone. I also am able to put myself in your people's shoes. I would be very happy to talk to you any time.

It Is A Gift
by: Nancy

I to have been able to make things better but just in the last year, I was told, I was an empath. We take on the pain and stress of others,and while they feel better,we are left with a train wreck! I have found that anything that has to do with water...water calms me and is a HUGE reliever... I have 3 water fountains in my room.
Since Im new to this, I just know it works for me....The sound of trickling water and soft music.

Good luck on your path.

Do aura self-cleaning every night :o)
by: onerose

I myself experienced some of the stuff you stated. I always wash my hands in running water, our send the bad energy into a wall or wood after massaging someone where I felt a tranfer of this kind of energy.

One psychic technique for getting back into shape:

As one of the previous readers stated, you need to ground yourself through your imagine yourself as a tree with lots of roots and plant your roots all over the room you're in, then create a channel that goes directly down to the centre of the earth and evacuate all the bad feelings or bad psychic pictures you see in your mind and in your aura. After this self-cleaning always replenish your aura through the crown chakra with golden dust of everlasting love :o) If you do this daily you will feel much better.

TAke care!

you would excel in a career of alternative healing!
by: Anonymous

Hi Jackie, you seem to have been given a gift that has turned against you, or you haven't learned to control... The power to take away pain can be channeled and controlled and you can learn to remove the negativity that you gather from those around you. There are several methods one of which is grounding meditation. There is a lot of information available online as well as out in the world if you start looking. Also you would excel in a career of alternative healing! I really hope this will be of some help.
