Re: Empaths?
maybe buy some earplugs OP
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11171736

Those won't work for long... as you'll quickly find yourself keying off of and noticing expressions and body language next What's next wearing blinders or staying away from other people? Much easier to train yourself to be at peace in whatever environment you find yourself in so nothing external bothers you. Then all that is left is to work internally on yourself.Might as well start with that and cut out the middle as the end result will be the same anyway.hf
 Quoting: Seeker of Truth


Yeah...I understand what you're saying but it can still be frustrating. For example, I'm a musician and a writer. I personally can't do either one efficiently with chaotic surroundings. My environment generally doesn't bother me, but its been getting harder ever since late May. idk what happened

Re: Empaths?
Thanks for the replies. Its just hard to stay balanced when everyone is fighting all around you...literally. People are always arguing, screaming at their kids, and just being flat out ignorant. I'm good at ignoring it but its annoying..like the shit wakes me up out of my sleep. I'd move but I'm unable to right now :/

Yeah..I do that. I'm pretty "awake and aware" and all that shit. I'm also a human who needs restful sleep lol
 Quoting: Gr!g0ri

Oh crap, I apparently presumed wrongly you were talking about walking down the street and being overwhelmed, not in your sleep! in that case, yea get a white noise generator or an equivalent to drown out the noise like the other poster said or the ear plugs like your mom said.hf

Re: Empaths?
I'll summarise my thoughts on the specific case of noisy neighbour problems before going to bed.

2 and 3 are of course different ways to the same thing.

1) The OP can use 'technology' to help
* Earplugs
* Noise: white, ocean waves etc.
* Sound insulation

2) The op can go down the meditation path and find inner peace that way.

3) If the OP is a natural empath and not just sensitive to the insensitivities of others then he can connect with the suffering of the noise perpetrators.

4) Use the distraction for a purpose, such as a trigger for lucid dreaming or astral projection, important to lose the negative associations with the sound in that case.

There's probably a lot more too, but that's all of I've got for now.

Re: Empaths?
Get out a map. If I was in America I would choose somewhere like the appalachians, or way up north where there is few people. There is always old shacks that people want to rent usually cheap.
I live nearly 2 hours from the closest town. My rent is $50 a week. Solar power and spring water. Very basic. If you have money to buy a place they are dirt cheap. You only need enough room for chooks and a vege garden. A goat or cow for milk and cheese if you want the extra work.
If you want this, you can do it for nearly no money or not much. Most people have much more than they need. I have very little stress out here. I visit the city cause I love to watch the people but I would die if I lived there.

Re: Empaths?
very well said. I think this is where we all are going to.
But still, many people can´t handle their own emotions, so they tend to project their issues on others.. they even sometimes do it without saying anything. This can be very invasive.

I don't like the city. I don't even like living inside a town. Probably why I never moved out of BFE, lol. I could see where it would drive someone empathetic or sensitive insane. I do notice in less populated areas, mental illness seems not so prolific. I realize causation doesn't always imply correlation... but sometimes it does, lol.

Make the inside of your apartment a drop dead gorgeous SANCTUARY. Same with any outdoor space you have access to.

Get cd's of tropical rain forest sounds, waterfalls, storms, etc.

A huge bathtub works wonders.


Focus on the innocent children when in crowds, especially if you have a problem reading others thoughts.

Think of your favorite vacation place when in huge crowds. Live in your fantasy world a little more.

I am a bit of a recluse actually. I stopped being able to go out and just walk around NY sometime around 2007. The city is so crowded now, but also the vibes are evil!

Sometimes when people are speaking I can just feel despair oozing out of them. Its almost like a psychic fart!
