Are you an Empath?

Do you often feel deeply tuned in to the feelings of people around you? Do crowds make you uncomfortable? Would you (or the people closest to you) describe yourself as a sensitive person?

If so, you may be an empath.

Empaths are those who absorb the world’s joys and stresses like “emotional sponges", they are people who lack the filters most people use to protect themselves from excessive stimulation and can’t help but take in surrounding emotions and energies, whether they’re good, bad, or something in between.

The term empath comes from empathy, which is the ability to understand the experiences and feelings of others outside of your own perspective.

Say your friend just lost their dog of 15 years. Empathy is what allows you to understand the level of pain she’s going through, even if you’ve never lost a beloved pet.

But as an empath, you take things a step further. You actually sense and feel emotions as if they’re part of your own experience. In other words, someone else’s pain and happiness become your pain and happiness.

I will share my story with you in hopes that it will help.

I was going through a tumultuous time in my life. My fiance was drinking heavily, working 3rd shit made us feel distance, my boss was abusive, I was dealing with fear and grief I had not yet released and I was constantly on the go ALL THE TIME barely sleeping. My fiance's ex was angry with us and sent bad vibes our way and really bad things started happening in our home. I lost faith in myself and my abilities and wanted to give up on everything!

Then when I was at work the electric sliding doors would open and close by themselves... ALL NIGHT  LONG... I sought out someone to guide me and answer my questions that were similar to yours. I found guidance from many and this is what I was told.
  1. Journal to channel your energy... then burn it... everything you wrote and release your fears to whom ever you pray to... in your case God.
  2. If you believe in it you manifest it... both good AND BAD. I was fueling the bad juju sent my way by believing it existed instead of protecting myself and trusting I was safe.
  3. I am an energy container. I WAS CAUSING THE DOORS TO OPEN AND CLOSE MYSELF!!! I also caused my cell phone to act crazy, manifested energy beings in my home unintentionally when releasing my anger, and was attracting spirits to me because I wasn't allowing to let my energy flow and become balanced with it. It was insane to think I was that powerful, and still is at times, but multiple Shaman, psychics and empaths have told me the same thing.
  4. Not only was it my energy I couldn't control but it was also the energy of others I was absorbing that I couldn't control. Because I am empathic I was absorbing the negativity and energy of those around me and cramming it into an already bulging energy container that was causing myself to feel chaotic and making me feel like I needed to run away from everything... INCLUDING MYSELF and what made me me... ie. Tarot, reiki, meditation, intuition, etc.
Deep belly breathing, meditation, and diving deep into my shadow work is the only thing that has helped me. It had been 6 months and although I still make electronics and lights go crazy when I am angry I am able to recognize it and calm myself and control it. 

I hope this was helpful for you
