Questions for Empaths

I just found a new to me site which contains advice I haven’t seen before. Does it resonate with anyone else?

The site has a mix of paid and free material. I am focused on the free lessons at this time. When I signed up for a quiz to see if I was empathic, an email was sent to me which led here and to two other videos I’m looking forward to watching. There’s more to empathy than protecting oneself.

Oh there is so much more than protecting oneself for sure! It’s quite a bit to manage, especially if it wasn’t necessarily managed well before, (in my case anyway) because I didn’t know it was a thing or that it could be managed without just blocking out everything & everyone. More like shutting down or off I suppose for a very long time.

Another 1 I’ll have to bookmark & take a peek at :hugs:

Loner Wolf - Luna & Sol is another site for information also if you haven’t come across it before :smile:

Hmmm… is there an Empath Masterpost already? I’m pretty sure there have been quite a few threads here already that could be nicely bundled together :sparkling_heart:

My mother said she was an empath when I was in high school. Problem was she chose to overdo it, like some drama queen, making my temporary yet immediate feelings seem like the end of the world. I dismissed her claim and the ability in general because when I needed someone to be there and just listen, I felt I was being made fun of.

Now that I am experiencing symptoms of this … thing, I don’t know what to do with myself. It scares me that I’m behaving like my mother. I’m glad so many people here are empaths, so I can learn from them.

Thank you all!

I don’t believe there is an Empath Matserpost yet, but I agree- it’s a popular subject and would be nice to have them all in one spot! :grinning:

(If you wanted to make one I won’t steal your thunder, Celestia! If not, let me know and I can put one together :handshake: :wink:)

Oh, I’d love to! :blush: :sparkling_heart:

There’s no category or tag for masterposts yet? That could be helpful for finding them better :pink_heart:

Yes, it would! That’s a great idea.

It’s a work of art! :sparkles: Thank you so much for creating the Empath masterpost, Celestia! :heart: :grinning:

Agreed, and done! :raised_hands: :blush:

Happy birthday to the brand new masterpost tag- may it be a good house for all of the helpful masterposts of the forum!

@CelestiaMoon great minds think alike :hugs: I remember last night thinking that an Empath Masterpost would be a great idea :bulb: after replying on a couple of them! Thank you so much for putting it together :heart:

The new tag is another great addition! Lovely :revolving_hearts:

Yay, I’m happy that I could create and inspire something that was very much needed :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I don’t think there’s a masterpost for chakras and energy work? At least I couldn’t find one when I was looking. It’s kind of a passion for me, so I’d be happy to make one, but if someone else wants to they’re welcome too :sparkling_heart:

@CelestiaMoon there is one, at the time I hadn’t added Masterpost to the title. I did get it added to the Empath post for you & the Human Design Energy Work post! :revolving_hearts:

Ohhh, so that’s how it escaped my eagle eyes :laughing: :eagle: :heartpulse:
I’m not surprised that it was yours :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Oh thank you :blush: yes there were a few that I hadn’t originally titled that way. I have gone back & added Masterpost in the title and/or the tag :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Sweet! :smile_cat: :sparkling_heart:

How would you feel about adding a section about auras into it at some point? I’m not sure if it’s a universal belief, but at least looking into the yogic and tantric teachings they are closely linked in the energy body :revolving_hearts:

@CelestiaMoon check your messages! I moved the brainstorming to a message so we don’t take away from the original discussion too much :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I’ve been talking a bit about this privately with a few of you here recently and I thought to drop by again to give a quick update.

I asked this question a mere five months ago, but I’ve improved so much in this regard. I have many of you here to thank for it, so I just wanted to say I appreciate all your advice and support! I want to let you know that you all have really helped a lot.

@starborn, that is fantastic news! I remember when I first learned about it, it was like… UH… now what do I do because so many things make so much more sense. Then it got all jumbly with some other things I had going on, so I had to learn to separate what was what and where it was coming from. It was a good time (cough, sarcasm, cough), and it should be noted that it is also still a work in progress.

I’m so happy that you have made great progress; I’m kind of in a stop returning to what you did for many years and start trusting your intuition and embracing your gifts again. *(Sometimes it’s a blessing and a curse, but… semantics really… :blush:)
