I'm so wrapped up with caring for my Mom I'm not feeling much of anything these days but her.:)
 Quoting: devorahg


I'm doing the same thing Dev...so I know where you are coming from.
I guess that's why I was so caught off guard by my experience yesterday.
It was so much more intense than anything I've felt when I've left the house in the past couple of years.

Be careful when you venture out...things have changed!hf

Re: Empaths: Are you more sensitive lately?
Oh yes! And I seem to be attracting negative, aggressive people.
 Quoting: Jane Smith


Gosh, I've been experiencing the same thing! This start around April. These past few weeks I thought I was cursed or something.

I'm a very nice, happy, outgoing individual. Yet for some reason lately negative awful people are drawn to me. I keep having these experiences where complete strangers verbally abuse me out of the blue.

& the weird thing is, I feel like these people are taking out their anger on me because I'm such a bubbly, happy person. I just know my visible happiness is drawing negativity.

I need to buy an evil eye bracelet or something.

the attraction is for you (and others in the same situation) to help them, if you stay bubbly and happy after they abuse you or whatever they might do they will think about their actions and be sorry (deep down, might not show straight away but definitely when they get home)

why get insulted? show compassion and feel sorry for them, they are in a bad state! they need help

 Quoting: xen


But that's just it - they never feel sorry!

In one case an individual got even more cruel when I broke down and cried! I was told "you're too sensitive, you're crying to manipulate others and get your way - I'm too smart to fall for that."

Although you're right - they are definitely individuals that need help/guidance.

About a month ago I was harassed/bullied by an off-the wagon Alcoholic. He was so cruel; I was left speechless by his behavior. He just randomly singled me out and tried everything to make me feel miserable.

I think I need to practice energy shielding or something. My emotions are very obvious. When I'm happy others can easily pick up on it. Perhaps I'm giving off too much positive energy so I'm inadvertently attracting negative energy?

Also, if the individuals that are targeting me really are seeking healing, should I try to help them or just react normally? [my normal reaction usually is crying; I don't have much of a threshold when it comes to tolerating verbal abuse]

Re: Empaths: Are you more sensitive lately?
I've always been overly sensitive with others and their emotions. I particularly don't like taking on sadness or any sort of fear. I suppose I can transmute it to a degree, but it doesn't always work. Not sure if it's been worse lately.

they do deep down, they may be in denial but part of them definitely feels sorry. some are so sick that they may feel pleasure in seeing you cry. if you remain happy the denial will be harder to maintain and it will help them face their true feelings. maybe you should take a course in 'harden the fk up' ;)

the ego has no control over energy shielding, this is all regulated by spirit. if spirit wanted one of these people not to feel your energy it would make it so

they are seeking healing and you are helping them no matter what you do. the results will be more apparent if you talk to them and remain positive. words can mean anything or nothing, it's up to you!

Good insight here. I flip between both sides of the spectrum for some reason. Sometimes I can be cruel (not intentional, more of a reaction to certain people and emotions) and other times I can be incredibly sensitive, but it may just be my mood/pain level influencing all this. When I'm feeling good, then nothing or nobody seems to bother me, but when I'm feeling shit, well shit spreads I guess. It's a tough thing, and I usually avoid people altogether in those moments, but unfortunately the only thing that seems to cure those moments is a dose of love from another. We need each other to heal.

Re: Empaths: Are you more sensitive lately?
If the energy being released by Mother Earth to transform Herself impacts us negatively, its only because of our negative karma. What to do to get over the negativity on those days is to work spiritually, keep our thoughts high, or do mantra. You can even recite mantra mentally, without any outward signs if you're in company. Sensitives will notice, though as your aura starts spinning..

Buddhist groups should be able to properly initiate you into mantra, or the Aetherius Society or others. It needs to live within a person before they can pass it on properly, this takes many many repetitions.

Re: Empaths: Are you more sensitive lately?
I'm not sure if "sensitive" would really be the most accurate word for what I've been feeling. For me, it's as though everyone is suddenly emotionally transparent; I can just 'read' people much, much better than I used to be able to. It's quite calming when you're able to separate something hurtful someone is saying to you from their true motivations, which are usually not personal.

Something inside me is changing. It's become much easier for me to control my emotions, to let go of the past, to not dwell, even while I'm picking up on others' emotions stronger than ever. It's as though I can see everyone in my life with perfect clarity for the first time. It's been beautiful, actually, to feel this way in the midst of all of this societal turmoil. Very calming.

Great post, OP. Best wishes to all of you hf

I've been seeing this too.
Sometimes, I see hundreds of them in my vision..all sparkly and shimmering, look like they are swaying in the waves.
I've also seen the 'dark fuzzy forms' at the edge of my vision.

I've been wondering if what we are seeing, isn't 'the subatomic particles' that our entire World/Universe is made up of...becoming 'energized' with the stuff coming from the Sun.

 Quoting: Muirine 1438325


I'm pretty certian that at least what is happening to me...is not depression.
I have no serious 'problems' in my life right now.
The most stressing things are an adult child that has decided a life of crime is his 'career path', and MSD trying to come across our ground.
Plus, I started with this whole 'ramped up sensitivity', for the past 5 years. It's just so much more intense the past few days...moreso than it has ever been.

My best advice to help you 'adjust' to what is happening, without the meds...is meditate, like some others have suggested on here.
It does help.
I've also worked quite a bit on 'balance', and letting those feelings 'pass thru me' but not remain.
I've adopted the theory about 'accepting life with an open palm'...let the emotions flow over it..don't try to hold on to them, like with a clenched fist.
It's important to be able to 'ride the waves'...just float on the surface, and let them carry you. If you try to struggle against the tide, they will be stronger than you are.
I understand that many want to stay in a constant state of 'Joy'...but I think that's an unreal expectation, and why some are struggling with this right now.
There will always be negativity, the trick is to not 'hold on to it'...don't let it grow into something huge because you keep holding on so tightly.
Same is true of the positive...have to let it flow too..as much as we would all like to amass a huge ball of it in our hand...we must let it flow too.

The only thing I'd like to add...is sometimes an act of LOVE is not always pleasent for the other person.
I agree, there are many people that will initially act negatively to us...but I've also found, that sometimes it takes someone being brutally honest with them about their negative actions...before they will feel any of the things Xen has said.
Many do not realize what is happening to them....and if you try and speak calmly with them, they won't listen. Sometimes we have to 'get our dander up', to be able to accomplish the ultimate goal, of redirecting their thoughts to a more loving place.

Re: Empaths: Are you more sensitive lately?
I have to say, I haven't been having a lot of problems with 'negative, angry people', when I'm out in the World.

I project LOVE when I'm out, and it just dosen't attract these negative types to me.
I'm also trying to 'be invisible' when I'm out...because I have been told to 'be in this World, but not of it'.

I do still get the people that walk up to me, and start pouring their life story out to me...like they have known me their entire life, but we've never met before!
I send them LOVE for their wounded hearts...and listen to them, give the best advice I can, before walking away.
Still, they will either have to touch the side of my face, or stroke my hair, before I walk away from them.
It always amazes me when these people come up to me.

It's almost like...the only ones that see me anymore, are the ones that ARE SUPPOSED TO...and the other ones, take no notice of me.

Re: Empaths: Are you more sensitive lately?
Definitely more sensitive, to a debilitating fault. We recently discovered that we have a small mouse issue in the basement, and my husband sealed up any holes in the foundation to prevent them getting in. However, it also prevented them from getting out of the walls, and the other night a couple of days after he did it, I was sitting outside on the patio and I could hear scrabbling. A terrible, frantic scritching noise all around. The little things were desperately trying to get out but were trapped. I was devastated. Just sat there crying as I listened. Two days later we found a baby mouse alone on the patio, dying, probably trying to find his mother. I imagine she was one of the ones trapped. I kept it sheltered in our wheelbarrow and tried to nurse it back to health for twenty four hours, checking on it, attempting to feed it, but yesterday morning when I tried to give it water in a dropper, it died right in front of me and I bawled like a baby for ten minutes. It's in a box outside right now waiting to be buried.

I feel awful lately, like all the pains of the world are smashing me to bits and tearing me apart. I was thinking about this yesterday and looking online for some kind of information on it. Funny you posted this thread.

I also agree with the poster who said that she is feeling under attack by negative aggressive people more lately. This is spot on for me as well. And it's making me feel even worse. I've never seen women in any kind of aggressive altercation between women, not once, but in the past two weeks I've had to step in between two separate incidents, one at Dunkin Donuts, over a parking space, and another the other night at the grocery store, when a young women went crazy on the old woman who accidentally tapped her bumper. People seem to be going insane all around me. I have no idea what is going on.
