Are YOU Empathic or Clairsentient? All those emotions, all those mood swings...

It is my belief that Empathic skills and Clairsentience are the most prevalent psychic gifts in our society.  It is also my belief that these two gifts are the ones that most often go unidentified by the people who have them and even by other psychics (psychics normally recognize the energy of another psychic).  I often wonder how many people who have been diagnosed with depression or anxiety disorders are actually Empaths or Clairsentients.
*** VERY interesting side note here: It is my belief that many unidentified (or even identified) Empaths & Clairsentients also have addictive behaviors like food, drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc.  This, I believe, is because the addictive behavior is an outlet for the emotions these unidentified gifted people have but can't deal with--so they find another outlet for it and the addiction momentarily allows them to ignore what they don't understand and don't like feeling.

The most obvious sign of being a Clairsentient is when you are emotionally attached to someone, you can "feel" them, even at a distance.  Even if you and the other person are at odds with one another, or maybe even ended your association with one another, you will still continue to feel them and feel a connection to them.  In times when the person you are connected to may be going through emotional highs or lows, you will still feel them. 
The best way I can describe it is: thoughts of that person will suddenly come to you, out of the blue.  It will come to you as a sudden onslaught that you can't get rid of, even though part of you may want to.  Unless you take steps to sever the spiritual/energetic "tie" you have to this person, such occurrences will continue without warning.  They can continue for years.

Clairsentience and Empathic skills are closely related but differ slightly. 
The most obvious sign of being an Empath is when you are around other people, you take on the feelings of the people around you.  If you are in a good mood and go around someone who is sad, you will suddenly, inexplicably, become sad yourself.  People unconsciously seek out Empaths.  
If you are someone people find it very easy to talk to (ie: "dump on"), you have Empathic traits.  If you find yourself wanting to "fix" everyone else, but ignore your own needs, this too, is the sign of an Empath.  If it's easy to figure out other people's emotions but you largely ignore your own feelings, this is another sign of an Empath.  
Empaths are naturally sensitive emotionally.  They take on the emotions of people around them. 
Empaths also have difficulty expressing their emotions to other people.  They largely keep what they feel to themselves.  They are the "sacrificial lambs."  A lot of times, when in relationships, Empaths will be the one's who sacrifice, get used, abused, or enable the co-dependent. 

Here are the traits of an Empath.  See if any of these sound familiar to you.  If they do, I recommend researching how to control the skill:
* Random mood swings even though you have no idea why.  You search for possible reasons why you may be feeling the way you do and attach labels that don't really fit.
* In crowds, your emotions run high and change often--you get anxiety-ridden, panicky, frustrated, angry.  You may want to be in a large crowd, but every time you do, you end up feeling tired (and it's because you emotionally run a marathon of different emotions).
* People seek you out to confide in you
* People like being around you, but every time they are, they end up talking about their problems/issues and yet, your problems/issues are rarely spoken of, if at all.
* You have a need to make everyone feel better/feel happier and take steps to make it happen
* You somehow just "know" what people need to hear in order to feel better about themselves
* You have difficulty expressing your own emotions and much prefer to focus on someone else
* You often ignore people's bad treatment of you--explaining it away because they need you, and on some level, that's enough for you.  
* You are the natural healer, helper & you always sacrifice for others.  You NEED to help people.
* You are a magnet/receptacle for negative energy.  Not because you started out feeling negative, but because others need a place to put their negative energy (and there you were, ready to receive it!).
* You don't like feeling bad/down/negative/sad, but you feel resigned & believe it to be part of your lot in life
* You are the natural animal lover!  You love animals--they make you feel happy and a love that feels like pure innocence.
* You are a "nature baby."  Being in the country, by the water, at the beach, a good rain storm, etc.--anything to do with nature brings you a sense of peace that you just crave.  

Here are the traits of a Clairsentient (Clair-sen-tee-ent):
* You are highly sensitive to your surroundings.  They cause swings in your emotions.
* When you go some place where large crowds are, you often get headaches, feel nauseous, or have other physical reactions
* If you go to places where violence, illness or extreme sadness has happened, again, your mood swings violently in direct proportion to what has occurred.  You will also probably get throbbing headaches.
* You have an almost unreasonable desire to avoid going near or into places like hospitals, cemeteries, prisons, jails.  You may even become a bit panicky if you have to go near them.
* You can "feel" the presence of spirits, but you don't understand what you're feeling nor do the spirits present themselves to you--you can just feel something "odd" when you are in a place where a spirit might be. (this is b/c you don't have the gift of Mediumship which would allow you to see/speak with the spirit, but you can feel the energy of the spirit)
* You touch other people's belongings and your emotions begin to inexplicably change
* You go to other people's homes and your emotions begin to inexplicably change.  You may even attribute it to not liking the people, but have no definitive reason why you don't like them, you just don't!
* You think of someone who is not around you, and you inexplicably know how they are feeling
* You think of someone who is not around you, and you inexplicably know something good or something bad is going to happen to them (this is knowing how that person will feel in the future, but if you do not have the gift of clairvoyance, you will not know what the event will be, you will just know how they are going to feel about it)
* You have the weird talent of "distance healing."  (and probably don't know it, lol).  You talk to someone over the phone and they feel better whereas you feel worse.  Or, you think of someone at a distance and begin to feel worse.  You later talk to this person and find out they were thinking of you and felt better afterward.  
* You can feel other people's pain, even the location of the pain on their body.  Sometimes you will take on that feeling within your own body (and it freaks you out, lol). 

Most of what you've just read doesn't sound overly positive, does it?  Now do you see why the gifts of Clairsentience and Empathic skills are a gift and a curse?  These two gifts actually can be very positive, if recognized and channeled properly. 
Also, after reading what you have, one can see where some people who have been diagnosed with depression or anxiety or have panic attacks could have been misdiagnosed.  I am not a doctor by any stretch of the imagination, nor am I suggesting you stop taking your medication if you are on any.  What I am suggesting is that you do some research, because you may just find there's not anything "wrong" with you other than that you were given a gift that no one ever told you that you had.  You also may find yourself on a new path--one of peace and happiness.  

We are the healers of the world.  Society needs us.  The gifts given to us were given for a greater purpose than our own personal lives.  It is not often "fair" that we have these gifts.  It isn't even "fun," for the most part, unless you can come to an understanding of your purpose and be at peace with it.  You were chosen.  It's that simple.

Once realized, the gifts seem to cause you to start a path for the "greater good."  Again, it doesn't seem fair.  However, if you have these gifts and refuse to acknowledge them, your life will continue to be riddled with sadness, depression, loss, and negativity--where you always seem to end up "the loser."  So if you recognize yourself in either of the descriptions above, I implore you to seek knowledge on how to control your gift so you can live a life of peace and happiness rather than upset and loneliness.
God be with you,
Sol

Thank you for this.  There are so many things that so make sense now.  I'm still in awe that I made through all that I did.  It makes me wonder about all the people out there who don't understand it and live in fear, depression, anxiety, etc.  With more awareness, hopefully the ones who recognize their gifts can help others.

that was the point in writing this--because I think there are SO many people out there struggling without knowing why.  AND, if more people recognize their gifts, the world would be a much better place for all concerned.
Happy Sunday to you,

Excellent post once again!  I have recently had a client that has been trying to figure out why she has ties to people that are truly not a positive force in her life and she wanted to know why she consistently felt the need to jump in and be helpful even when she was not asked specifically to do so.  

We uncovered that she was indeed an empath but she was also much more and as she acknowledged her gifts they begin to manifest in her life in many different ways.  After examination of some of her past lives she is recognizing the signs she has been given throughout her life and connecting with the spiritual guide that provides her with guidance.

Many people are fearful of their gifts because of the dogma they have been exposed to most of their lives also.  Some think that they are being "visited" by demons etc.  It is very sad for me when I see that type of discrimination for people can be judgmental and cruel and I am very careful defining my skills to others and I make sure to include that I am also a devout Christian and I do not have any ties to "demonic" forces.

Sol this is a great informative blog and I thank you for sharing it with us.

Hello there, Rosalea!
Your friend's story is, unfortunately, very common!  What's sad is that even after recognizing the gifts, she'll STILL suffer with the need to help those who would be better served by NOT being helped.  
For myself, I've found that adopting the attitude of "tough love" is of great help.  Meaning: if I help them, I rob them of the lesson(s) they may need to progress, if that makes sense.  I've also adopted the belief that when people truly need my help, or are ready for my help, they'll come to me.  With these two beliefs, I may still feel the need to help others that I'm not supposed to help, but I am able to stand back and NOT help them and reserve my energy.

As to the comment on Dogma--I agree.  But I am so rooted in my Faith that it no longer occurs to me that someone would think I'm "of the devil."  Maybe that's why I never run into those kind of people anymore.  Either that, or their there but I've gotten so good at ignoring them that i just don't see them! lol
Great comment-thanks!!
Sol

# re: Are YOU Empathic or Clairsentient? All those emotions, all those mood swings... @ Monday, July 19, 2010 2:08 PM

I am definitely both, believe it or not.  I have all the characteristics - and all of the emotional/addiction/panic-in-tense-spaces you mentioned.  I will definitely do more research on this and also, I will keep the article.  Thanks!

# re: Are YOU Empathic or Clairsentient? All those emotions, all those mood swings... @ Monday, July 19, 2010 2:27 PM

Heya Kit :)
You are very welcome and I am glad you found it helpful!!
And yes, I can believe you are both.  The GOOD news is, the steps to protect yourself from the onslaught you receive from having both gifts is virtually the same.  So if you learn protection for one gift, you are protected on the other front.  When you begin to be more consciously aware and take note, you'll be able to tell which gift is being "nudged" by someone else's emotions or energy.  For me, regarding the Clairsentience, when someone is trying to nudge me, I normally get a tingling or a numbness--almost like a knock at the door.  With the Empathy, when someone/several someones nudges me (or is trying to dump their emotions on me), the knowledge is more emotional and I'm able to recognize that it's not my emotion and push it away.  
But it DOES take time, skill, and practice to be able to recognize, put up walls, and push away what you don't want.  
Good luck to you and thank you for the nice comment!
Sol

Wow, I truly believe I'm an empath. All the traits you mentioned, I fit, right down to the animal lover part. Wow. I used to always tell people that I truly try to put myself in other people's shoes and understand how they're feeling. And I always say that I put a lot of energy and thought into watching what I say and do because I care about other people's feelings, yet other people don't care about mine. I'm always sacrificing my own feelings to try to make other people feel better. I also have problems with depression and anxiety and have even tried "diagnosing" myself as manic depressive. Sometimes I'll have these happy moments where I'm lively and positive, then the next second a negative thought pops into my head and I'm down for the rest of the day.

Now I finally have a name to it. Growing up, my dad used to tell me that something was wrong with me just because I thought differently. He didn't understand me. Thank you so much for this article. It's helped me a lot to realize that nothing is wrong with me; I have a gift.

Hey there, Adaanele :)
I am very glad this was of help to you!  The next step is to begin learning how to control it so you can begin to feel better/more in control of yourself.  :)
I wish you luck on your journey!!

I've known I've had the characteristics of being empathic but never made the connection to my depression. Thank you so much for your wisdom. It's difficult for me to make my own health a priority over helping others.

Yes I am medicated for anxiety and depression.  Two different readers on Keen have told me I am an empath.  Well now...it all makes sense.  Thank you darlin!

Hiya Laurie--it IS difficult to make our own health a priority but look at it this way--YOU have to be healthy if you are to be of any help to those who may need you, so it does benefit others if you look after yourself first!  Not only that, but there are people who will just take and take and TAKE!  This doesn't benefit them in life nor does it benefit you.  So again, closing yourself off to that DOES help them, as well as yourself :)  
Thanks for taking the time to comment.  Happy day to you!

@ No Meat--hiya & you are very, very welcome :)
Blessed day to ya!

This is a great blog and great timing.  I do believe that many people are waking up to the possibility of having psychic gifts and I truly believe we all have them.  It certainly helps them make sense as to what's going on with them.

I am both empathic and clarsentient and now realize I always have been.  It's taken me 3 years to figure out when I'm picking up other's emotions, when someone maybe draining me or getting under my skin so to speak to push my buttons or get me to "help" them.  Even still I have to really be aware as to what is coming from whom and what's coming from me..lol!  Even if it's coming from me, I have to ask why are my buttons being pushed?  What is this calling me to heal about myself? How do I use this to my advantage? For me, I had the wake-up call of tough love (like you Sol) and setting boundaries, neither of which I practiced very well until the past few years and I'm still learning everyday.  I rushed in to help everyone and take their problems as my own.  As you noted, I am not doing those people any favors in learning their life lessons.  I will help those that truly want it and I'll teach those that ask and are truly open.  But I won't waste my energy anymore on those who want me to do their work for them. Those are the take, take, take without making the necessary changes to their lives.  The more I learn about my empathy and clarsentience, the more gifts open up.

So how does one know if their picking up on others?  It is probably very individualized.  I realized I must remain very aware in my surroundings and of myself.  If my mood suddenly changes, I look at the people or atmosphere around me.  Is it similar to what I'm feeling?  I also get pressure on my third eye and that's a clue that someone is trying to get me to do their bidding or their behavior is "attention seeking".  I do get other people's pains but it has subsided into just a passing pain in a part of the body.  This all takes practice but staying aware is the key.  Trial and error abound for your own personal indications:-)  Just know you're not alone!

Thanks for posting this wonderful blog!  And allowing my comment to it!

Love and light,
maryann217

I am an Empath.  Years of taking on others emotions, problems and pain have left me drained.  Now I know I have to take care of myself regardless of who wants to dump on me. I always wondered why so much negativity came my way.  Thanks for a great blog,I really don't feel slone now.

# re: Are YOU Empathic or Clairsentient? All those emotions, all those mood swings... @ Saturday, January 01, 2011 5:07 AM

Such a straightforward description has helped me so much.  I have been coming to the realization  ( and the longest/toughest part - acceptance) that I am Clairsentient for a couple of years now and now realise I am an Empath as well.  The description of depression/anxiety was spot on.  It also helped me see that my daughter also has the same gifts to a much higher degree as well as being able to see spirit. for myself, I am still taken by surprise when I physically feel someone else's emotions - and so far, its always people from a great distance and someone I have an emotional connection to... with one particular person, I can feel it from overseas.   I left my marriage about 5 years ago and no one could understand why, when on the surface, it looked idyllic.  But my ex-H's extreme negativity was literally leaving me little more than a shell.  Its been a long road of recovery, which really only started when I started to see that I had these 'gifts' and that ultimately, they really saved me.  Thank you for taking the trouble to describe this so clearly, because I'm sure like me, lots of people struggle to understand all of this at the beginning of their awareness.

# re: Are YOU Empathic or Clairsentient? All those emotions, all those mood swings... @ Tuesday, January 11, 2011 6:17 AM

I enjoyed your article.  I was told by someone that I was an empathy, which made mego home and look it up on line. I found an empathy site, many of things I could relate to, but others I could't.
I con tined to search the Internet to hopefully find what I have experienced in life and finally I found it in this article.  The following desribes exactly what I have experienced. Thank-you for sharing.

"The most obvious sign of being a Clairsentient is when you are emotionally attached to someone, you can "feel" them, even at a distance.  Even if you and the other person are at odds with one another, or maybe even ended your association with one another, you will still continue to feel them and feel a connection to them.  In times when the person you are connected to may be going through emotional highs or lows, you will still feel them. 
The best way I can describe it is: thoughts of that person will suddenly come to you, out of the blue.  It will come to you as a sudden onslaught that you can't get rid of, even though part of you may want to.  Unless you take steps to sever the spiritual/energetic "tie" you have to this person, such occurrences will continue without warning.  They can continue for years. "

unfortunately, when I read the list of attributes of the empathy and the clairsentient, I had characteristics of both, but I also lacked some of the listed characteristics of each. (My mother, on the other hand, is a perfect example of an empathy.

# re: Are YOU Empathic or Clairsentient? All those emotions, all those mood swings... @ Wednesday, January 12, 2011 7:32 PM

After reflecting on your article, I realized that I may posses more of the clairsentient traits than I once thought. I am not afraid of hospitals and even work in one for two years, but every day I worked, as soon as I entered in the morning, I began to feel nausiated and the feeling would not go away until I left for the day.  I would also get terrible headaches.  They became so bad that I would be unable to remember what I had done five minutes before.  I was constantly checking and rechecking my work.  I finally quit, because I was afraid I would forget to do something that may affect someone's life and I didn't like the way I felt all the time.

again, Thank-you for your article.  It has helped me to understand a lot!

I have never had any kind of Clairsentient episodes before with anyone that I know of, until I met Beth.  The relationship, which only lasted for 4 months unfortunately, ended on a bad note.  
When it was good, I was more in love with her than anyone I have ever been in my entire life.  We connected on so many levels, emotionally, intellectually, physically...everything.  It truly felt, and still feels, like she was my soulmate.  Since the breakup, I have had numerous occasions where I haven't even been thinking of her or doing anything that could remind me of her and BOOM--out of the blue I get this almost external feeling like a bullet that makes me start thinking about her and my heart clenches up and my stomach is tied in severe knots and it lasts a good hour or so.  The funny thing is, this primarily happens on the weekends which is probably the time when she's with some other guy now since many people are off on the weekend.  Anyway, I never believed in any of this stuff until I started having these feelings.  I mean, they just come out of nowhere and truly feel externally based as opposed to internal.  Is it really possible to be that linked with someone still and, if so, how on Earth do I get rid of this link that I have with her?  I'm trying to move on, but when that stuff happens it keeps reminding me of her and it's making it extremely difficult.  I'd rather not move on, of course, but she sort of gave me no choice, so I know that's what I have to do.  Anyway, then I started looking at all of the other traits of a Clairsentient and for the most part I've had many of those traits all of my life, and I swear as I age they only become stronger.  I'm glad I found this site, because it has led me to a path of realizing why it "may" not be a good idea to bond with anyone this seriously again until I marry.  Otherwise, as I now know, I'm obviously ASKING for trouble.  The pain, when it happens out of the blue, is unbearable.

This article is amazing! I've been searching & searching for info and this is the best written, most comprehensive I've seen!! When looking for info on Empaths it just didn't seem to fit me, but I knew there was *something* different about me. I now believe I'm Clairsentient, although I don't have 100% of the traits listed. Oddly, i've never struggled with it, it's always been very natural to me. Occasionally I meet someone and just *know* we will connect & I will help them somehow (and it later happens). I also seem to be able to transfer energy to these people without feeling depleted. It is still a mystery to me, but I've always felt it was a gift. It's so nice to know I'm not alone & that someone understands this.

This info was just what I needed.  I am both an Empath and Clairsentient.  I am now able to feel others energy much more frequently.  I get hot and cold sensations in my hands.  Sometimes tingling. I will take on their physical pain.  I can touch something of someone elses and feel their energy.  There is someone in my family that their energy is WAY off.  I believe they are sick and don't know it yet.(they refuse to go to the doctor)  Does anyone else have these issues?   Anyone know how to interpret these types of sensations.  It is happening to me at such an increasing frequency and I don't know what to do!!

I can sense evil spirits or good spirits I cannot see them, hear them, in fact I feel an aversion to evil and it feels like a warning system to protect me from them. I can sense the goodness of a person or otherwise by being near them...touching them adds to my knowledge. I feel an irresistible desire to trust these feelings as ultimately valid and I distrust words and prefer the language of touch.
I feel very uncomfortable in crowds and feel calm in my own space or with someone I deeply trust.

I am VERY sorry to be responding so late (in some cases, REALLY late!).  I have been juggling helping my mom out with the work I do on Keen.  
So I apologize for the lateness of the reply, but hope that it somehow reaches you!

Stacy--Thank you for your kind words and I am very glad the article helped you in understanding the gifts!  Some people go their whole lives thinking something is wrong with them without ever understanding they weren’t messed up, they were just different (in a GOOD way).
As for working in fields where high emotions, sickness & trauma occur…I actually think that Empaths and Sentients are unconsciously DRAWN to those fields, even though the areas will cause them illness if they don‘t have the proper “shields” in place.  In some instances, Empathy & Sentients NATURALLY develop ‘shields’ around them and in other instances, they have to work at developing them.  It really depends upon the individual.  
Being what you are, you will always have an unconscious need to help others and if you ignore that need, it will manifest anyway, come ‘hell or high water,’ so you may as well direct the flow as YOU want it to go, and in the most healthy way possible!  So saying:  do some research on how to create a ‘shield’ around yourself (personally, I have several layers of ‘shields’ around me that I’ve developed over time, that I can now lower or raise at will).  The shields take practice but having them and being able to use them is gratifying in more ways than one.  

If I were you, I’d work on developing a ‘psychic shield.’   While you are learning how to do that, a good way to RELEASE the energy you pick up from others is to ‘play in the dirt’ by doing some gardening and/or walking in the water (RUNNING water--like the ocean or a running spring/creek).  
Best wishes to you and your mom,
Sol

Firstly, I would like to say thank you for the lovely article and the great posts - very interesting!
Based on the two descriptions I can certainly recognise a few traits from both sections, but I have never seemed to have any particular problems. In fact, possibly the opposite, as everything seems to go easily for me. Does this fit with being an empath and/or clairesentient in your experience?
Throughout my life people have always poured their hearts out to me (friends, acquaintances and even complete strangers) and I definitely feel a deep desire to help others, which has led me to learn how to do Ayurvedic massage to help heal people.  It wasn't until I started massaging people, however, that I realised that I was not only picking up their emotions and physical pain very strongly, but that I some cases I was actually suffering from their symptoms. After one particular client I became extremely depleted, to the extent that I actually suffered some hair loss. After this I looked into shielding myself and always wore a tourmaline crystal whilst working and mentally said to myself thatI was protected, which seems to have worked. Is it unusual for someone to have been fine for so long and then to suddenly have such a 'reaction'?
The reason I have found your article now and why I'm writing this post, however, is because last night my friend revealed that she was mentally and occasionally physically (non-sexually) abused by her mother as a child. Being unprepared for this, I wasn't wearing my crystal and hadn't put any shields in place, and my first instinct was to give her a big hug, so of course I've picked up things from the contact, but today I have broken down in tears a couple of times and I am feeling an unexplainable fear that is making me physically shake. Normally a nice long soak in the bath would help, but nothing seems to be helping...do you have any suggestions?  The other question I'd like to ask you, is whether it is possible to almost have a premonition about such a thing as is? The reason I ask is that last week I went to A&E as I was experiencing pains in my arms, accompanied by severe pins & needles/numbness throughout my body and face and an uncrontrollable shuddering (not too dissimilar to the shaking I have now) and the ECG scans and blood tests came back completely clear. Panic attacks were suggested, but until last night, there wasn't any thing in my life that could have suddenly prompted such a reaction. As all my friends and family often comment on how calm I am in any sort of situation, this explanation also seemed so unlike me. Do you think its possible to pick up things before you're even told about it? Or is it possible that I picked up it from her at a distance (if so, this would be the first time that that has happened)? Is there a way to protect against picking up things from a distance? Also I have psychically severed an emotional connection to someone in the past, but they were already out of my life - if I do the same with my friend will I still be able to feel the connection to help her?
Also on a slightly unconnected note, I notice that I get more sensations/tingles in the run up to Midsummer (I was born on midsummer's day). Is this something that anyone else has noticed at all?
Many thanks again for your article and I look forward to your thoughts,

I remember as a child asking my father "why am i crying? I know im not sad." After my molestation came out. I was diagnosed with depression. so i attributed everything to that. and it isn't constant just here and there. but the other day. started as a great day, then i went by a friend's house and when i left i want ed to cry in my car i kept thinking why do i want to cry nothing happened, and for some reason the phrase "what if these arent my feelings" popped up which led me to this site. IDK if I'm an empath are not but i do relate to alot of the things mentioned above.

In the last two weeks on 3 seperate occasions I've been seeing a white misty figure appear before my face nd then go away. I want to know if you think it could be empath related?

Ele,
I began reading your comment and when I saw that you became a massage therapist for healing, my automatic reaction was "ewwwwww...."  Not "ew" as in gross, but "ew" as in, 'you poor thing!'

IMHO, being empathic and clairsentient and then becoming a hands-on healer would be a special kind of Hell.
In ANY type of massage, there is an 'energy transfer,' per se--that‘s part of what is so relaxing, whether people who get massages realize it or not.  Then, if the massage therapist is FOCUSED on drawing out the negative energy from the client while pouring IN positive, healing energy....wow...the potential for injury to the therapist is just...wow. Big. Huge!  In being an Ayurvedic Massage Therapist you are essentially ASKING people to feed you their aches, pains, diseases, and negative emotions (aren’t YOU the nice gal…lol).  
With the exception of VERY few people, I do not like to touch people nor do I allow them to touch me. Even though I always have a “basic shield” up when I am in public, being touched feels like a static charge where someone rubbed my hair the wrong way.  If I go somewhere that I KNOW I’m going to be touched, I add layers to that basic shield.  
I also do a LOT of cleansing rituals for my home and take regular cleansing baths to cleanse my mind, body, spirit and aura.  
In YOUR case, you should consider doing DAILY cleansing baths, burning cleansing incense where you give massages and burning herb and oil-laced candles.  I would also have some Gi-MONGOUS negativity-sucking stones laid out around the areas where clients came in and where they received their massage.  I would also add in a small waterfall somewhere so that I balanced all of the Elements out (using ALL of the Elements increases effectiveness).  Your clients wouldn’t blink an eye at the incense, candles or stones since they believe most New Age Healers are hokey with all of that stuff anyway.  
Even if there was a chance that you were NOT Empathic or Clairsentient, the aforementioned cleansing and purifying tools would be an extremely good idea.  With you BEING one or both, the aforementioned cleansing and purifying tools are not just a good idea, they are a NECESSITY!
Just wearing one set of tourmaline crystals isn’t enough protection for the type of work you’re doing, sister.

As to being able to exhibit the physical injuries of another person, yes, it is ENTIRELY possible; probable even, in your business.  As for taking on your friend’s depression and panic or anxiety attacks that come from her emotional trauma, yes, that would also be normal.  
Then, having things “go your way”?  Yes, that would be normal for an Empath or Clairsentient, too.  We naturally give off this happy little energy, which draws people toward us who want to “dump” on us, lol.  Another side effect of giving off that happy energy falls under the Law of Attraction--what we put out, we draw toward us.  So yes, with our happy-happy, joy-joy energy, a lot of good things come our way and SOME doors just naturally open for us.  To me, this is a Universal Balance System--we take on a lot of the world’s pain and troubles, so we are rewarded with having some good doors open to us (doors that do not “naturally” open for others).

Hey there, Queen,
I am NOT licensed to diagnose depression, anxiety, PTSD or any other illness related to mental and emotional trauma.  
That being said, you may either be picking up on the emotions of others or, your bouts of emotional outpouring COULD be from having your repressed memories triggered by one thing or another.  Does that make sense?  
When people go through traumatic events that they mentally or emotionally can’t deal with, their own mind will push those memories into the closet so that the person can keep going on with life.  Years down the road those closeted-memories can start to come out when you encounter something that reminds you of the events your mind threw in the closet.  The triggers can be ANYthing--a smell, a specific phrase someone says, certain colors, or smells, or, anything, really.  I think each person has their own unique “triggers” when it comes to remembering the past.  I think this is ESPECIALLY true for anyone who has been through traumatic events that they have tried to bury so that they could move on with life.
Molestation is damaging on SO many levels, there are bound to be repressed memories that get triggered at unexpected times throughout the abused person’s life.  So, with your history, I wouldn‘t be able to tell you whether or not you are experiencing triggers of the repressed memories or if what you‘re feeling is from being Gifted.  
I canNOT tell you the therapy for illnesses (aside from not being licensed to do so, it’s not legal for me to do so).  
What I CAN tell you is:  For any emotional response that I personally have that I do not WANT to have?  I do the following:
1.  I recognize I am having the emotion,
2.  I examine the emotion--to see if the emotion is mine, to see if the emotion serves a purpose, to see if I feel like CONTINUING to feel that emotion, etc.  
3.  I think about how that emotion COULD effect my life, my decisions, and my relationships if I allowed myself to continue feeling the emotion
4.  When I decide I’m ready to get rid of the emotion, I make up my mind to do so.  
Sometimes I rid myself of the emotion through meditation or through distraction.  Sometimes, I write out what I’m feeling.  Writing out my feelings not only ALWAYS makes me tired and helps me release the emotion, it sometimes provides enlightenment as to why I suddenly began feeling whatever negative emotion I was feeling.  

Hope this helps in some way!
Peaceful night to you,
Sol

Thank you for this!!! I'm so happy I'm not crazy, I've been dealing with depression, anxiety, and panic attacks for a while now and I've known for a while that I'm clairsentient and empathic. I've felt borderline crazy because of all this. I mean I've predicted two people's deaths, is that normal for these abilities could there be more abilities that I haven't recognized yet?

As a child, I could look at random houses as we drove by and feel exactly the emotions of the house. It would automatically come from my gut and I felt happiness, sadness, abuse, fear, etc deep within my stomach. One could chalk it up to a kid's vivid imagination projecting what was going on in that particular house, but to this day, I STILL can get a feeling if I'm in the right mindset. It doesn't happen as automatic as it used to. I feel somewhat desensitized now that I'm older which makes me sad.

In years passed, I sensed several  different presences around me on occasion. And while I volunteered on a peds cancer unit for a family with a 7 year old Leukemia patient, I found myself driving to the hospital unexpectedly late one night to find that the doctors had just told the family to remove their daughter from life support. Again, same gut feeling. I didn't have anyone's number to call. I just got in my car and drove all because of an unexplained presence and a strong need to be at the hospital. She passed away an hour after I got there.
I have a very busy life with a full time job and 4 kids playing sports. I'm so engrained in day to day activities and TO DO lists, I feel I have become somewhat desensitized from a gift I believe was given to me at birth... or even before.

Something strange happened to me last night i just couldn't control it really, it almost scared  me to be honest... I was thinking about someone that i missed and well we haven't talked to each other in over 2 weeks or so. He just out of the blue started ignoring me so yeah and well i was feeling sad about it and i broke down for a couple minutes and i tried to go to bed afterwards but i just couldn't sleep because he was still on my mind. Then, for some reason a heap of emotions started to take  over me while i was thinking of him and i started sobbing uncontrollably, even though a couple minutes before that i had managed to pull myself together and relax. A deep feeling of sadness and pain almost struck me and it scared me because this has never really happened to me before, it felt strange almost as if i had managed to feel his emotions at the time i don't know if they had to do with me but i could have sworn i felt some sort of connection with him even though it was strong and sad but it was something alright, i truly do miss him but i just don't know if he feels the same way..  i was wondering if anyone can explain to me exactly what i went through last night? it has left me wondering ever since please and thanks..

I sit here with tears in my eyes as I finally understand who I am. At 46 yrs old I finally know myself. I knew there was something "special" but I didn't understand how I just "knew" things. I can touch someone and look with my mind and Know. It hurts sometimes...it exhausts me often. I often disappear to a special place....my river...my woods...to restore myself. I understand and what joy that brings me! I will continue my search and accept that I have been chosen and my path is laid out. I trust my God that this is from him and will seek guidance carefully. Thank you, I have peace and excitement in my heart. :)

# re: Are YOU Empathic or Clairsentient? All those emotions, all those mood swings... @ Wednesday, November 21, 2012 11:42 PM

i suspected this since i was in 6th grade, but brushed it off due to the fact that i thought i was only over analyzing everything. the only thing that i couldn't explain was that i felt bad in large crowds at times. i mean in 6th grade small discreet conversations, i would have a strong feeling about what it was. or if the object was near i felt a pull, or impulse to see at a certain object or person. the following 2 years i would feel what people near me felt. i also had a bad feeling, on my way home, i looked out the bus window. i had a feeling like someone punched me in my stomach, i looked out the window and the clouds seemed strange and idk how to explain it. well case is that when i got home i, my mom told me her friend's daughter had passed away. in high school i got headaches when walking on the main hall way, which was always full of people. the bad feelings would come back, but nothing as severe as the first time that they happened. i also started to know things that i had no way of knowing, once again i thought i was over analyzing things around me. sometimes i would feel the pull other times i would get this pain in my stomach, and then what ever it was would pop in my head..either an image or word. now, i guess, the newest thing was that with someone that i would only know for a week, i felt like i knew them for years..not what they showed to others but the real them. as if i knew their habits, their lies, and anything that would fool anyone else i could see pasted that. not sure what to make of this, am i really over analyzing things?

i mean i mentioned some things that you wrote as the description, but other things about me that where also described on your article are:

i always loved animals
i am over sensitive (emotionally)
i randomly feel sad, and have been diagnosed with depression
i do self sacrifice
i do attract people to me, and they dump their emotions on me.


another thing i was curious about, is that i can disconnect the emotional tie with people easily. and at times i now can be in some crowds. does this mean, that if i am, i have accidentally learned to control this ability?

# re: Are YOU Empathic or Clairsentient? All those emotions, all those mood swings... @ Thursday, November 29, 2012 10:02 AM

I have both of them but I don't have control of it ...it even scares me cause not only can I sense people's emotions I can sense spirits emotions I had a bad experience. When that happend it would just take over my body and that spirit was always angry and depressed it was always in a particular room which I would always sleep in, I had to get out of that house cause it was driving me crazy every where I go I can feel spirits around..I can't be at a store for to long cause all there emotions get to me...I start to get mood swings and nauseous..many things that I predict from people happens my boyfriends things am just wishing bad on them but its not that it just comes to me like a vision! :/

# re: Are YOU Empathic or Clairsentient? All those emotions, all those mood swings... @ Wednesday, January 16, 2013 8:24 AM

This article resonates with me almost entirely. Visions just pop up in my head and I feel like I'm right next to whomever is inside my head. Just last night, a Taoist who no longer talks to me and told me I'm inside now was having an entire conversation in my head and when I looked at his picture, it was so powerful like the energy consumed me. I really felt like we were telepathically speaking. I felt last night for the first time that this is real and I'm not insane then I read this site randomly googling and it describes almost everything I experience minus the headaches. Words seem to ruin it as a description of an experience can never describe an experience. I'm a skeptic and an agnostic atheist. I keep thinking I'm insane yet the visions are so clear and just pop up with no control. It feels so real. A spirit hangs around me all the time but he can't communicate or show himself. It's just a strong comfort feeling that he's there and when I meditate, he's really there and I can feel his thoughts. If I told anyone, they would think I'm insane. How do I control this if it is real and I haven't lost my mind? I would love to control this and make it more powerful whether it's an illusion or not. Any book suggestions?

I have great admiration for what you provide.  People do need help.  
Reading your answers to people's concerns sometimes seems very cold or as I'd like to put it, just straight forward input.  I defiantly agree with your approach.  Don't beat around the bush with frilly answers on how to make someone feel better about having their energy drained by other people's stuff they are carrying.  It makes you ill if you don't put love, light, boundrys, ect ect around you.
 I venture to say that it's a conscience effort to keep it in practice.
Which I for on have failed at and become very Ill in the process.  I work with people very closely as a makeup artist.  I've had excruciating pain wrack my lower back and had burning pain while using the ladies room, only to find out that my next client had just gotten out of the hospital for a kidney/bladder infection they had been suffering.  The pain stopped suddenly after seing her.
     Another instance was with my sister.  I woke during the night from a nightmare where she had and accident with chest trauma. I called her and told her not to drive to her next trip. She didn't , she had my other sister drive.  And all was well. Anyhow,  My chest kept hurting
for weeks after that nightmare.  Then I got  THE call.  She had vascular
cancer in her breast.  That one took a while to get over.  I didn't practice any kind of boundaries.  Although she is cancer free now.  It had taken a while to rebuild my own health.  If younare indeed empathic.  It is imparitive to learn protection boundaries.  Learn your energy and take extremely good care of it.  People are there to help you throughout the process.  Get into their teaching
networks and help forums.  You are a gift.  You help people. We need more people like you.  But, it's necessary to take care of yourself.  It's hard to care for others when you have nothing to give.

Milo is my cat :)

I have known there is something about me that I still to this day cannot share, otherwise I fear looking arrogant or just weird. From as long as I can remember I've had a strong understanding/connection with animals. They have their own language/personality/feelings. As well as the Earth. I am a vegetarian. & I am saddened by the worldwide neglect and abuse to the Earth and its animals. This is just touching the surface of what I am going through. I have been struggling with depression for years. I am so sensitive that before I looked for answers I saw no hope for relief or change. Experiences with spirits, my lifelong friend has always lived in hunted houses, many with a tragic history. I felt I was in situations, being personally attacked. Or, the very least contacted for communication/acknowledgment. I can feel aura,emotions,wants/needs,spirt and sometimes future events. I also get "tugs" like a string from people. Another strange thing is I have suggested openly that objects/property from others has bonds. I get strange feelings from pictures too (especially :/ the dead)  I understand I am different but not alone.

Dearest Solara,

People who have the gift of clairsentience (usually the first "psychic" ability to develop) need to learn protection.... this is key to being able to function in society and not withdrawing or manifesting psychosis. You may very well be a "starchild"....

Thank You so much, This Article has answered My Question,  but I can say that I am around 85-90% of both. I will continue to do My research. I have been under a Psychic attack, and there has been a negative entity attached to me...I noticed that, I no longer fear this presence, but that it has anxiety...so great, that I can barely control my heart rate! I have been following all suggestions and prayers that I come across, but I am struggling with protecting/grounding myself. I have not been able to visualize! This coupled with My issues, and actually seeing shadows...that I haven't seen, since I was a little girl. Now, I don't want to be in my own home, especially from what I feel in a particular room. I have been diagnosed with both depression and anxiety from the age of 14, but this is something, indescribable! A sporadic....feeling that I am being watched, seeing shadows and now quick flashes of glittery light, things from the corner of my eye, more often then not. The last 3 weeks have been unlike any other time, in my life! And I am learning more about myself, in the process.  I work as a licensed nurse, singing online, is the extent of my social life! I have a 16 year old autistic daughter, and I only seem to hear from others, when they want to hear my thoughts, and this includes my husband! A person that I cannot share any of this info with! I never imagined that by the age of 40 yrs old, this would be my life! In the last 5 yrs. I have turned into this isolated person, who only enjoy my work, and singing online karaoke!  I have lost all interest in going out, traveling, or even going home to visit my family!
Any suggestions or help, will be greatly appreciated.

Stay Blessed

I don't know if I am either an empath or a clairsentient or both LOL.  Maybe you can shed some light?  I can actually feel a physical shift in energy when I'm speaking with a depressed person.  It feels like I've stepped into a circle of slower, more dense energy and it makes me really sleepy.  It even happens when I'm talking to someone on the phone who is depressed.  I also perceive more than a person is telling me and upon asking them more probing questions I can usually confirm my impressions/thoughts.  I do feel a compulsion to help people and usually I do a great job at it; I feel others are sent to me.  Once in a blue moon I will get a clear message that stops me in my tracks.  An "instant knowing" a message sent to me in a flash.  This has only happened to me maybe 3 times in my life.  (I am 41).  My mother was psychic; she passed away on Halloween night 2 years ago.  Oh and twice I was speaking passionately about someone who had passed over and I felt a bubbly energy over my right shoulder, like champagne bubbles.  I knew the spirit was there.  So what the heck am I?  Empathic, psychic, clarsentient?

Thank you for sharing this. I believe I may be Clairsentient. When I was younger I had the ability to touch and take the pain of others.   Unfortunately I did not understand what I was doing and ultimately, afterwards I would be in agony.  Eventually I stopped doing it.  

I was also able to interpret dreams.  I stopped that too after giving two different friends bad news.  I could not handle the overwhelming feeling of sadness I felt when one friend came back and told me that someone close to her had died just as I had predicted and the other that her family's home had burnt down and they'd lost everything.  I'd told her that something terrible would happen but no one would die.

I've seen, heard, smelt and sensed the pretense of Spirits since I was  a child.

I could go on and on.  Though I no longer use them, It's just good to know now that there's a name for my 'gift' as you call it.  

I've chosen now to study herbs and hopefully one day be able to heal with those instead.

Thank You

Create a Great Day!

# re: Are YOU Empathic or Clairsentient? All those emotions, all those mood swings... @ Wednesday, April 24, 2013 4:01 PM

I always wondered what type of gift I have. I sometimes can sense things that others can't. Not sure if it's emotions or something else. The strongest I can recall was the moment my dad passed away in the hospital. I thought the nurse had come in and stood next to me but when I turned, no one was there but I can still feel a presence standing next to me and I know someone should be standing there! I've had other occurrences similar to that. So I'm guessing I'm Clairsentient?

But I also can see white mists at certain times. It doesn't form into a shape, but it just lingers. I don't really know what it is or why I see it. If someone can explain, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

Hey there, Liza!
I am NOT an expert at knowing all of the different Psychic gifts, but...just from what little you've said, it SOUNDS like you have latent Mediumship abilities that are not/have not been fully formed.  
Depending upon how strong the ability is in a person, a Medium who DENIES their ability would still have parts of the Gift show through.  
Like, if, as a child you saw Spirits but when you told your parents they said "stop that!" or, "no you don't! don't tell people that!"...well, if & when this happens to child-Mediums, the children want to please their parent so they sometimes push the abilities away to either make their parents happy or so that people don't treat them as a freak.  
Are there any other examples or other experiences? (ie: hearing talking when no one is there, being touched when there's no one there, etc.).

OMG Thank you so much for responding. You're the only gifted person who's ever responded back so I truly appreciate it very much.

As a child I never really remember seeing any spirits. I guess you can say the first time I experienced anything like it was when I was in my late teens (I'm 32 now). I would actually see grey shadows when I slept in the dark. It would be at the foot of my bed and then float to the side of the bed (freaked me out!) So up until this day I can't sleep in the dark because of that.

I sometimes would have random dreams and then having it actually happen in real life. I don't really tell anyone about this except for my family. I'm actually accepting my ability and actually would like to develop it somehow but I don't know how.

Something new recently started and I don't know if maybe I am just dreaming or what but it wouldn't hurt to let you know... I would hear a voice saying something really quick. It's faint, and sometimes I can hear it, sometimes I can't but it's right when I'm about to fall asleep and then I would actually wake up from it. I could be just dreaming but I really thought someone was talking to me so I would open my eyes (I've always been a light sleeper).

Another strong incident about feeling something when no one was around was about 6 months ago I was working 2nd shift so I would get out of work at midnight. One night I was extremely tired and I wanted my husband to stay on the phone with me until I exited the freeway just to keep me awake but he too was tired (he worked the day shift) so I was left driving home, falling asleep until all of a sudden I saw a figure on the shoulder of the freeway and I was shocked because it came out of no where. Then I would see it again as I drove right by it. Then I would see what was almost like a light fog develop in front of me and then I felt the sensation of someone sitting in the back seat and leaning forward so they're right to my right ear. Yes, I freaked out a bit  but I soon realized, whatever or whoever that was, kept me from falling asleep and I was able to make it home safe.  

Sorry for being so random with my experiences. I've been trying to speak to someone who has similar gifts and I've had no luck until today when you responded. So I'm just itching to get this out of my chest. I've had so much more occurrences but it's just too many to mention. Thank you so much again for responding. It really means a lot to me, you have no idea (or maybe you do) :)

Hello Alphafemale.
Wow it would seem i'm both an empath and clairesentient.
It is sad to know that some parents drive down the gifts of their kids. Its an abuse really. It takes so long for the child to discover them again and longer to develop them to their correct status. AND are often shy to publicly display these gifts too.
I have seen spirits for years now and Im not sure but i wake at night as if I have been away from my body. I dream of all manner of people, animals and places even outer space. I often wonder about them and if the actions taken in these experiences actually help anyone. :) they sure can worry or excite me when they happen. Sometimes when they get too much and too often i have to say out loud 'no more for a while!' and for a while I'm allowed this respite.
I get what i call Hmm how to put this 'ants in pants' syndrome. What it is I cant stay still for a day or two. Usually its a precursor to some sort of disaster that is about to happen. Some turn out to be small while others are huge. One of these I mentioned out loud and nearly got myself into a lot of trouble because i predicted a huge fire. So to budding Healers please be careful in who you confide. Not all the world is as empathetic as you.

Hey again, Liza J
No worries on being random with your experiences.  The different scenarios actually helped!  
If you look at the pattern of when the different things are happening, it is ALWAYS when you are not paying attention.  As in, when your trained, conscious mind cannot interfere and tell you “you do not see what you think you see, you do not hear what you think you hear.”
See, from birth onward, people are “trained” NOT to be different from everyone else.  They are “trained” to be “one of the crowd,” not stick out, not be weird, not draw undue attention to themselves (and their family and their friends).  Humans are “trained” to NOT SEE…spirits.  If you were to ask your parents, when you were a child, there were probably instances when you looked like you were talking to air or, looked like you were looking at something no one else could see!  During those instances, your parents (babysitter, grandparents, siblings, etc) would have told you, “there’s nothing there, Liza, stop acting like something is there.”  
Being told to “stop” seeing, talking to, or noticing that which others cannot perceive is “training” you to “be normal.”  (lol @ “normal”)  Over time, you suppressed what you saw and heard because it pleased others for you to do so!
Unfortunately, the Gift of seeing or hearing what isn’t there doesn’t actually completely go AWAY just because you suppress it.  Hence, when your “trained” conscious mind isn’t paying attention, you’re running on auto-pilot.  Auto-pilot is your subconscious mind.  

Your subconscious mind works while you are awake AND asleep.  You’ve probably used this auto-pilot when you were driving somewhere that took several hours of driving.  Your conscious mind “zoned out” and you were driving on “auto pilot.” If this has ever happened to you, there are probably gaps in your CONSCIOUS memory about different scenic sites, rest stops, highway exits, towns you passed through, etc.  Your subconscious mind does a lot of work--more so than your conscious mind does, believe it or not.

So it is VERY interesting that all of the instances you cite happened when you weren’t fully conscious.  
Even more than before, I have the opinion you are a Medium and probably a precog.  If you are wanting to develop your abilities (think hard before you decide that), then the BEST place to start is learning to meditate and learning to visualize a “shield of protection” around you.  A strong shield of protection will keep any spirits from getting to close to you if you don’t want them close.  

A lot of people who find they are Gifted skip from creating protections and learning the basics (ie: meditating).  To me, this is a major FUBAR because, people do not know what is out there in the non-physical realm.  Not knowing could cause them to open themselves up to harm.  So learn visualization and get a strong field of protection and start meditating to “center” yourself and your non-physical self.  Once you master those two things, move on to seeing just how strong of a Medium you are.  

Oh, ps:  The dreams where you dream something and it happens?  Another example of your subconscious mind continuing to utilize the Precog gifts that you deny during conscious, waking hours.  You can learn to control that, too, and even start having premonitions during waking, conscious hours--once you learn to accept the Gift and once you RE-train your conscious mind to believe that it is “okay” to have these Gifts.

Hope this helps you, sister!!!

Hey Rob!
You’re right, it IS a tragedy that the Gifts are intentionally suppressed by so-called Do-gooders.  Even worse, some of the Gifted people end up living a hard life because they go through life thinking something is wrong with them and they never understand what is RIGHT with them!

Waking with the feeling that you’ve been away from your body would be Astral Projection, though you probably already know that.  On the days you wake with this feeling, do you have headaches and/or feel woozy and lethargic?

LOL @ “no more for a while!”….yes, this method ACTUALLY works really well.  Interesting that you just learned it on your own with no one ever telling you that saying this is a way to control your Gifts!  Good on you!

Your Ants in the Pants syndrome?  It SOUNDS like you are an Earth-based Precog-Sensitive.  I don’t know what the proper term would be, but I DO know that such Gifts exist, so that’s what I call the Gift you have for knowing about future tragedies involving the Elements.  

There is a certain energy or vibe that forewarns of impending Elemental disaster.  This is a petty example to what you do, but, the day before a storm will hit, my mom’s dog (Daisy) shivers uncontrollably and tries to hide.  It doesn’t matter if the sky outside is blue and sunny on the day Daisy starts with the weird behavior, you can guarantee that there will be a very bad storm the following day!  
Well, using this example, Daisy feels this energy that most people (or animals, for that matter) of what is to come.  YOUR Gift in this arena, if it is all Elemental-based premonitory, is the same--you’re feeling the energy of the Earth and what is to come from the Earth’s Elements (of which, fire is one).  

I think it would be WAY COOL to have that Gift!  Then I’d always know when to put my car in the garage!

Thanks for the comment, man!  It was a good one!!

Sol,

I'm so glad I had the guts to write in here about my experiences. You've pretty much answered/confirmed a lot of my questions that I've had for years. So again, thank you thank you! I never realized that the strongest experiences are when I'm tired or not paying attention. Thank you for pointing that out. I've been trying to figure out the pattern of when it happens but I can never catch it.

I've thought about developing this gift for a while now. I know there are risks involved but I was thinking that since this is already happening to me, I might as well learn how to do it correctly and most of all SAFELY. It doesn't seem like it's going away nor is it getting any less (if anything, it's actually increasing).

I forgot to mention that I have 2 other sisters and have similar gifts. Sometimes we even have some type of connection. For example, we would just randomly talk about something (out of the ordinary) and sure enough whatever we talk about actually happens. Like we'll mention an object or talk about a situation and it would appear or happen. We would even joke around and say we are the Charmed Sisters ;) but out of the 3, I seem to have more experiences.

I guess you can say as a child I probably did suppress whatever type of gift I had (though I don't remember any incidents as a child) because I grew up in a very religious home and I thought that having these gifts were not right. I thought it was wrong to have them. So you can imagine how afraid I was to mention this to my dad when they started happening. But before my dad passed away, he did mention that our family bloodline had certain gifts, whether it be spiritual, psychic, premonitions, visual, and he said that they were all blessings because we all had them from birth. He said as long as I naturally had it then it was ok. So since then I've been letting it go and let them happen.

So now I need to learn how to have these experiences safely (since they keep happening almost on a daily. Very small incidents but I'm aware of them). I will try and do the meditation and learn how to visualize a strong field protection. How long do I meditate? Should I do this daily? How will I know I'm doing it right? Sorry I'm pouring out so many questions on you.

You are an amazing person and I am truly grateful for your all your help and advice!

Liza

# re: Are YOU Empathic or Clairsentient? All those emotions, all those mood swings... @ Wednesday, May 01, 2013 12:25 AM

I believe I am an Empath. I've been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder, Anxiety, and things belonging to those natures, but, if I remember correctly I spoke to my psychiatrist April 23? and explained when I'm in a room with someone, I can feel a negative energy radiating from their skin. It manifests somewhere in my body, more times than none in the places where their body feels stressed and sometimes it's more than one place. I become very drained, as right now I do because I've been around Multiple people with negative energy for about the past 2 weeks. I want to pull away but, my mind, soul, physical being doesn't want to leave.

I am very physical. I massage my friends and family and a lot of the time I put them to sleep. (it can be very entertaining if they talk in their sleep LOL) But, they always tell me when they see me next, their body feels refreshed like they slept deeply for the right amount of hours on a comfortable bed and sheets. That is how almost everyone I have massaged has described this feeling to me. My psychiatrist had described this as Reiki  (ray-key) . I'm still not clear on Reiki, so I intend to go to the library and research on Empathic Healing and Reiki.

I also talked to my aunt (not blood) who is highly spiritual, and she explained how crystals and gemstones can help aid a Psychic in their life quest. She suggested I seek Out Fluorite, to help protect myself since I draw out negative energy. I don't know how to release the energy I take in, and I'm out of ideas. I can go to any lakes or rivers, or the ocean which I love to watch the waves and the Sun, calming down when the moon hovers over the endless horizon. I love sitting in heavy rain, I like dizzles and mists but only when I slightly feel a change inside me.

I also LOVE animals to peices. I just get scared when an unknown animal approaches me. I have an 8 month Miniature Pinscher who is very shy, and I also help me aunt (same one who spoke about the crystals and gemstones) with loving her animals. She does foster care and rehabilitation for dogs, severe cases of abuse and neglect. There are two dogs in particular I feel attracted to. Willow, 2 years old, had been beaten and burned with cigarettes as a puppy. Came to my aunt at almost a year old. Just until around the time I was scheduled for my surgery, in February 2013, I had told her I love her and she doesn't have to be afraid I'm never going to hurt her and Softly rubbed her sides of her eyes and under her snout. She began to play with the other dogs. I did not see this occur, but I wish I had witnessed that. Bendi, about 3 years old, came into the shelter pregnant and severely under Fed and shy. Met her same time as willow, and she wouldn't want to come up to people. Now I hear she wants everyone to pet her.

I have also been a drug and alcohol abuser for many of my young years. I would have suicidal thoughts and urges which sometimes led to suicidal actions. By myself, those things don't cross my mind. People who are slightly stressed, depends on the energy they give off. I also hardly feel good energy, which I don't mind at all. Other peoples smiles and laughter make my days smoother. I feel as if I could be getting auck depending on energies as well.

I just want to know more into this Empathic abilities, and be 100% positive that I am an Empath. Information and confirmation please? And I do not fit Clairsentient, only attatchment. Thank you SOOOOO much for this insite! <[^w^]>

Oh my God! I stumbled upon this page when I was investigating the voice and the heavy spiritual experiences I felt last summer (and on an off over my lifetime).  Still trying to make since of all the chaos that happened in my home.  I have always said I was extra sensitive to other emotionally and that I took on other peoples guilt but never could under why I did this even though I would try to brush it off.  Often times I took on peoples emotions not realizing it, felt anxiety and panic then questioned why am I so upset when I didn't do anything wrong, they did.  Could this be true, have I finally realized whats WRONG with me after 44 years?!  What do I do with this and how to I channel it for better use??? Someone please help me with this. I didn't even know nor have I have heard of a Empathic or Claisentient was until last night. Please God is this the answer . . .

It seems like I might be both…however could it be do just to my age of being almost 15? I also am confused about something else though. When I write(not all of the time, but somewhat frequently) I will know consciously that I am writing but I have no clue what I wrote. Or I will remember just snippets of what I wrote, and I am conscious enough to correct some spelling mistakes. Just this hour I was thinking about the painting "The Last Judgement" by Michaelangelo in 1537-1541 for the Sistine Chapel. Then I was thinking about the images I could see within the painting:a skull, a heart, and a Guardian Angel. And I started writing something but had little recollection of actually starting or finishing. My mom even said I shoved her away when she tried to get my attention. I vaguely remember it but it was like I wasn't really consciously there. And this happens a lot. Send me an email at blood.of.mine.blood.of.yours@gmail.com if you can help me out.

Hi there,
So I've been struggling with all these things that you mentioned to be connected to being empathic and clairsentient, and with your help I realized that there's no other explanation than for me to be both. I thank you for that much guidance, but if at all possible I need more help...
I see auras as well as being able to sense emotions of people. It gives me a better understanding of who is feeling what. However, I can't just decide to sense someone's aura because I just want to. It only happens when I not paying attention. Is there any way for me to have more control on sensing auras? (For instance, choosing to sense someone's on command?) The only person I can sense whenever I decide to is my boyfriend, Chris, and his aura even seems to almost have a texture. It's very precise, actually, when he is feeling a certain way, and I'd like to understand more.
Okay, back to more on-topic questions. Yes I can sense the feelings of others easily, but I sense both the living and the dead. I know where spirit is existing in a room, and they have the ability to touch me. Yes, touch me. It feels exactly the same as a living person's hand, yet sometimes colder or even warmer. Sometimes I'll even wake up with braided hair or scratches on my back in the place that no one can reach themselves. It's very clear that spirit is making some attempt at communication, but I can't see them or hear them. Occasionally I'll be able to just "know" information they give me, but that VERY rarely happens. Is there a way for me to develop a stronger bond with those who have passed on in order for me to understand what they're trying to tell me? I know you said that many people like us were not granted mediumship, but is there some other way for me to better understand what the dead are trying to communicate to me?
What puzzles me the most is that Chris and his sister are both mediums. However, once Chris met me, he lost all medium abilities and spirit never decides to leave me alone anymore. I first began to sense auras as well once I met Chris. Can these abilities be passed from one individual to another?
I'm sorry I have so many questions, many of them which may not be able to be answered, but I would appreciate you (or someone) trying to give me a hand. It would be fantastic to be able to understand any of these things better.
Thank you again,
Dani CM

Hi :) I have recently been told by a medium that I am psychic because spirits seem to come to me when I leave myself open. She has instructed me how to shut it off. This is something that has been going on since I was very little sporadically, depending on how "open" I am on any given day. However, I can't see them or hear them "at will", so I really don't think I am psychic. Sometimes I will know something about someone without them telling me, but this is rare. Usually I just get an impression of what someone is thinking about and how they're feeling about it. This is why I thought I am an empath but now after reading this, I am more confused! I have many qualities from both but not all. I would like to know for sure what my specific gifts are so I know how to best use them to help others. If you have more articles that could help me or other resources, I would really, really appreciate you emailing me.. LaurenHanson444@yahoo.com... thank you!!

When I was younger I could see things before they happened and I could see and talk to spirits along with feeling what these 2 are talking about. Is that possible? Now that I am older these 2 are more dominate but sometimes (rarely) I will see spirits and see things before they happen. Is this unusual. I know that in my family the women have had the abilities, my mom, my grandmother and so on, not only that but it's also believed that through my Native American bloodline the qomen were considered spiritual healers or healers of some sort. Is this odd tohave thay many capabiloties?

Wow, thanks, fits perfectly.
I was told many many years ago I had this.
As all the "symptoms" match 100%
Now a recovering and sober alcoholic, I have tried in vane for years to explain what led me to abusing alcohol. I can only blame myself in the end, but this held me clarify to myself why I had to shut off my feelings while going through a rough time with people around me.
The physical effects of extreme emotions around me can be too much to bare.

# re: Are YOU Empathic or Clairsentient? All those emotions, all those mood swings... @ Friday, July 19, 2013 8:32 AM

Good general article. If you have these abilities and get a lot of negative energy you are clearly avoiding certain energies, you should seek or be unafraid to go into situations that give you negative energy, and you should not complain or blame anyone or anything for the energy either! Eventually you just give up fighting it and it transforms into euphoric love. Personal anxiety is the issue here, not the ability, stop blaming others or finding excuses for your own anxiety... Having an ability does not mean you can't experience normal human emotions, though you can transcend them.

To paraphrase Alan Watts, trying to avoid hell is worse than hell itself. If you take the dive straight into the furnace you will come out unharmed.

Hi. I have a gift. I dont know what to call it. When I sleep I see hints of the future. And sometimes I bust out crying when someone is sad or feeling other emotions. I keep dreaming about my crush like 4 days in a row. Also I keep dreaming about demons each of them have a different looks. They usually push me down to the floor where I cant move. It happens in my house in a dream. Please tell me whats happening. Im 15. Please email me, I need an explaination of whats happening to me!

I have been depressed since I was a child...I have had an addicitive personalitiy..sober almost 6 yrs now..But the screams and smells I keep having is driving me over the brink..I am unable to deal with all the emotions any-more and not knowing what way to turn for ME..Other things have taken my mind away from me besides the screaming and smells its the fear of coming major disasters like end of world stuff....People I avoid at all cost I don't want to speak to anyone because I don't think my mind can handle one more piece of bad news....when I sleep I dream of other people from the past to now..I just want everyone to leave me alone.....I fear for all Life.....my famailar is my cat Callie, I worry what will happen to her if some-thing was to happen to me....But reading what I have today makes me feel some-what better but I need to get this under control Now not Later

Thank you for this wonderful post!

I am mainly an empath, but also have clairsentient abilities...which I have known for years, however it is reassuring to read your article---just to see myself reflected/described so clearly!

Can you help me choose the highest and best use of my gifts.....that is, what would best to make my living? How can I be of service and support myself?

I've been wondering about this because I feel like I connect to some people sometimes. It happens to me with people I've had romantic interest or relationships with. It doesn't happen with other people like my parents, close family or friends.
I haven't recognized if I can feel their emotions but I feel they definitely are thinking of me. I usually get a weird feeling in my stomach, like when having an anxiety attack that doesn't go away. It can last for hours or seconds.

I don't know how but i usually just know who is it that's thinking of me. If I really like someone, they usually come to my mind milliseconds before I get a text from them. Sometimes it seems coincidental.  I dont like it. How can I suppress this?

I first experienced this with someone I had met as a child and lost touch with for more than a decade, sudlendly I started feeling like I was being kissed in the lips and I came to find he had contacted me through facebook that day. The we saw each other again and stated s

Wow!!! I am definitely an Empath but also have some characteristics of a Clairsentient! I had known previously that my personality is filled with very strong traits such as a feeler, being very very intuitive, being empathetic, and so forth. My unique (mostly perceived by others as unusual or wierd) personality is a gift for sure... And now I have a name for it! I related to ALL of the Empath characteristics just full on, and I saw that I am a Clairsentient as well. I am super sensative to my surroundings, and my energy is drained shortly in large crowds. however, i actually get energized when i am in hospitals... not because of extreme illness, but because (as an Empath) i am a natural healer, so i like others to be healed. as part of my personality, i like to feel like i am either in a place, or doing something that requires me to be held to my utmost standards, serving others (again an Empath trait) but, In a way, they combine themselves. I love nature and I am calmed by it, but I feel it. I feel the ground, the energy in the wind, the life in the leaves. I have always loved small, tiny things. They are novelties, and to me they omit a tiny, happy, entriguing feel. Sometimes I just love to touch things because when I look at them it's like I can read them, but when I touch AND look at them, I can both feel it by look and touch. I often get emotional in TV shows because its like I take their character, and I just know what they are thinking. Every character I know... And then I feel everyone's emotions and it is very overwhelming. As well, there have been (quite freaky I must admit) instances whereas I'm listening to music and towards the end of one song, I'll  think of another song within the last seconds of the one playing already, and it will be the next song almost guarenteed. Crazy, huh?! I am also very observant. I see tiny details and I'd like to learn how to gather information about people off of the small details I notice. After reading a book on identifying body language as a guide to reading people, I am now very good at it. My question is if there is any way to be able to use what I see to instantly know information about people without reading a book on them (which is virtually impossible)? Or is that just something you've got or not. I don't know. Anywho... Just wanted to share some of my experiences with you!!!! :-)

This is the best breakdown of how these abilities and how  that I've ever read period!!! *I'm a clair-empath* with all of the abilities but they don't always work together, some times they are stronger, sometimes they seem completely absentee, and even though I knew what each of them was, for some reason this helped me process that I could only be using 1 or two at a time. I suppose it has more to do with the way I learn but, this shown me how they work together. Kind of like looking at a map and tracing the route vs. hearing directions. Thank you

I am an empath and ever since my ability developed I have had a nightmare almost every night only IF I am lucky to dream that night. Is there any connection to my ability? Also I am not afraid of my nightmares...I find them interesting? Is this wrong?
