I have never before revealed on this blog that I believe myself to be an empath. Not to sound crazy or out of touch with reality, but to say that I feel other people and hear what they are saying. Is a complete understatement for me.
I’ll explain as best as a I can, as briefly as I can, as an introduction before I spill a fairly large theory into the world I have about human energy. When I was in high school I had a few runaway friends whom I was probably too close with. A few of them started learning about mind manipulation and were actively practicing on our other friends.
I saw them make people pick up chairs and move them “on command” without actually verbally giving any commands.
I watched them train an ignorant friend to sneeze every time he heard the word chocolate, over the course of a week. I couldn’t believe it when they told me they had succeeded so I remember going to my neighbor, my dear friend and dropping the word chocolate. When he sneezed I almost lost my mind.
When these games, these tricks of the mind, were being practiced on me. I knew that this was not okay. That these were tactics that although amazing, were terribly scary. What was simple fun, when practiced at this level, would not end up being for good. Not with these kids. With some help, I learned how to block it. I stood up to them, and I had a valuable sway with one of these friends. And I made him choose! These tricks, or me! Thankfully in the end, he stopped – at least for a time and later they both moved away from us.
Anyways, when I learned how to block those tricks. I realized how much the everyday life of everyone else affected me…
But was it really More than other people?
Here’s what I know because of my own experience:
Every person holds and creates energy, some more energy than others…
Every person uses their energies to get them to want what they want. Whether that manifests in the form of people, things, money, hatred, fear. Whatever they currently crave in the mind obsessively.
Every person has cravings for things that they cannot (or do not) necessarily control consciously such as a desire for love, sex, escape, perfection, success, whatever their life’s motivation really is directed towards.
Other people can and will use their energy to push others inwards, sharing their energy and pushing through to a point of influence. Broken or weak auras will allow this easily – are you gullible a pushover?
Some people create a lot of energy, and these people tend to enjoy giving it away or influencing others because they have grown up knowing that they can use this energy and its effects! That they can give it away and not deplete. – Can anyone handle me?
Some people do not make as much energy as others and are harder to connect with, to reach a personal connection with, and often need others in their life to give them energy. – Why do I feel so disconnected?
An average person will give and take energy without worry. And often do not realize their influence on other people. Obviously living by taking, giving, breaking, revealing energy ignorantly and usually chaotically.
Some people are more susceptible to giving and receiving energy from others. And are deeply affected by high energy. And attuned to low energy.
Empaths are simply sensitive to a wide range of energies and are aware of them.
I was about 17 when I began my own self-practice of energy work. I began by pushing my energy onto this friend, who I loved, but was using his influence for the wrong reasons that I mentioned above.
I doubled up with someone, who also began to play the same mind games that he was using on us, against him. Over a matter of a few weeks, we had our friend back. Convinced of his own reasons, that he shouldn’t mess around with mind work. He stopped, moved on.
Here’s the thing though. Once you know something like this, you can’t forget it and move on. I vowed to learn more about using energy to heal instead of hurt. And I have
For now, I thank you for reading and for allowing me to offload this huge part of who I am, and what I do.l promise, I’ll explain more soon.
