The first thing that you should understand about this little quirk that you have is that it’s a psychic ability. You probably know this already, but I mention it, in case you
Most professional psychics, mediums, energy healers, and medical intuitives are empathic. It’s a big and important part of their skill sets. You are a part of this highly hallowed club, so welcome! Give yourself a pat on the back and pump your fist in the air a couple of times. This is a good thing.
It’s not something that should make you feel frightened. You are simply made a little differently than other people, that’s all.
Put a group of mediums into a room and ask them what they think happens when we die, and chances are an argument is going to break out. Eyes will roll. Voices will rise. Opinions about the afterlife are varied and vast, and mediums are no different from the rest of humanity when it comes to beliefs about the spirit realm and its inhabitants. Having an opinion about something, though, doesn’t make you right.
Empaths are highly sensitive souls, and being in a relationship with one can make a person feel like they are dating outside of their species. It’s not for the faint of heart. We are elusive creatures who sometimes avoid intimacy because we don’t want to feel consumed and suffocated by another person.
We feel everything, but that’s not necessarily what makes it so difficult to be in relationships. More often, it’s that we absorb other people’s emotions and energy so much that we barely feel our own. Our boundaries can be poor to the point where we don’t know where we end and others begin.
We rarely take love lightly because it’s difficult for u...

“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”- Buddha
Empaths are constantly affected by other people’s energy. Our gift can leave us feeling drained, confused, and victimized. We can feel like we have no control over being influenced by other people’s moods and physical problems.
Many of us wear our empath status like a handicap parking permit. We move through the world as though we are the walking wounded. Other people are encroaching on our energetic space and we have no control over it, so we give our power to everyone else. Their feelings supersede our own, so we are never...
Having a psychically gifted child can be a disconcerting experience for a parent. Many intuitive children can find their gifts frightening and are highly sensitive to the opinions of others about it. They can have a rough time trying to distinguish the difference between what is theirs and someone else's stuff. Sometimes one parent will believe in the child's abilities, while the other does not, which can cause a rift in the family and confusion in the child.
Most parents want the best for their children, but they are not sure how to respond to them when it comes to their gifts. Should they encourage them, ignore what's happening, or hope they grow out of it? I...
Many changes took place when my Heart chakra opened. A step in my spiritual self-development, I’d been working on this big step for about a year. I knew my life would be altered and I was afraid to face the unknown. Then, I had heart surgery. The surgeon helped me open my Heart chakra. I knew he was part of the plan from the moment I met him. When I awoke from surgery I knew my heart chakra was fully open and I was right. There were changes I could feel immediately. The first feelings were about healing from surgery.
