12 Dec 2016 Being both an Empath and a Highly Sensitive Person (energy and interacting with other people) The Piercers We are Stars

Hello family.  It’s been a few days since I’ve written and part of it is because of how I’m feeling tonight.  The moon is really full and my whole being is just “off.”  I haven’t felt like writing or doing much of anything!  Kyle asked me a bit ago “what can we do for you?” and I said well may be sex will help lol but honestly I don’t know.  When I’m like this there is very little that can truly help me to feel better.

What’s sad is there is no reason in the world I should feel this way!  We got to spend time with all of Kyle’s brothers yesterday for the first time in a couple of years!  It was so good to see everyone and try to get caught up.  So much happens in between visits!  We are so blessed!

Something that happens to me when I am with a mixed group of people for a longer period of time with varying energy levels.  My body will wear itself out trying to “align” itself to all the different energy signatures of the people I am with.  I try to take care of myself and disengage from people and go outside and stuff but that doesn’t always help.  The only thing that truly helps me is sleep and that’s what I did today.  I don’t think people consciously realize why they get tired, I do….it’s all about energy.   Everyone operates at a different energetic resonance level and when you get a bunch of different energy frequencies together they literally collide!

With women it’s even worse….menstrual cycles tend to synchronize!  Oh I remember the special hell that was when I was in the Air Force working personnel and all the females I worked with had that happen.  I distinctly remember that being why I loved working mostly with men!  Even though I’ve had a hysterectomy, I still am susceptible to “phantom” cycles that can be triggered by being around females who still have menstrual cycles.  I am forever telling Kyle that “next time” I’m not doing the woman thing again.  There are many pleasant things about being a woman but “female problems” is not one of them!

Being an “energy sensitive” person can be quite problematic for me at times and frustrating.  I want to be able to be around other people and interact in the world but if I get too much…..it can be disabling like today.  Being in enclosed rooms like churches, movie theatres, malls, stores etc., are toxic for me for great lengths of time.  There is just so much energy going on from the light fixtures, the objects, the people, the energy imprinted on the objects and in the rooms themselves.  There are some buildings I actually dread going into like some Walmarts etc because the energy of people going to these stores is so scrambled and often negative that they leave this energy in the store even after they have left it.  Over time, without a “cleansing aka smudging” it’s toxic for someone like me to go into such a place.  I literally say a prayer about putting on my “holy armor” before I go in so I won’t be overcome by the energy.

The bottom line is we are beings of energy wearing flesh suites and wherever we go, we leave “traces” of ourselves.  Whatever we think, whatever we feel, whatever we say…..all generates energy signals that we “imprint” on all the places we go….everything we touch.  I am conscious of these energy signatures and it can be pretty intense.  Think about those outdoor concert scenes with all that mist, steam and smoke.  That’s energy being generated by all the people gathered and since it’s outdoors (my ideal) it just goes up instead of sticking  to walls.

There is so much energy generated at outdoor venues

There is so much energy generated at outdoor venues

I’ve always been like this and thankfully I’m married to someone who understands to some extent what’s going on and knows how to help.  Kyle encouraged me to have outside time, went and got me a large protein infusion of Whataburger and also encouraged me to lay down and rest after our shower.   Kyle’s family and my friends are understanding too and I’m grateful for that!  One of the biggest things that helps me in this world is music — spending time outside with music helps me diffuse ambient energies.

 

We Are Stars

We are stars
Fashioned in the flesh and bone
We are islands
Excuses to remain alone
We are moons
Throw ourselves around each other
We are oceans
Being controlled by the pull of another

And I just wanna be loved by you
Yeah I just wanna be loved by you
I see nothing worse than to sail this universe without you

When we met
I was pulling an angel out of a liar
We forget
Satisfaction kills our desire
We are dreamers
Wishing upon what we were born from
We made plans
Kill them ourselves
And then we mourn them

And I just wanna be loved by you
Yeah I just wanna be loved by you
I see nothing worse than to sail this universe without you

And I just wanna be loved by you
Yeah I just wanna be loved by you
I see nothing worse than to sail this universe without you
(I just wanna be loved by you)
I see nothing worse than to sail this universe without you
(I just wanna be loved by you)
I see nothing worse than to sail this universe without you
Without you

Such is the life of an Empath and or Highly Sensitive Person (HSP).   I consider myself to be both. 

http://www.empathguide.com/

An Empath is a person who can psychically tune in to the emotional experience of a person, place or animal. In the paranormal and in some works of science fiction and fantasy, highly developed empathy is a psychic ability to sense the emotions of others and often highly aware of the health and state of mind of their loved ones, no matter how physically near or far away the individuals may be. It can be challenging for empaths to function healthily in society if they are unaware that they have this sensitivity and often opt to be alone.What Is An Empath

Most empaths are often in the dark about their innate gifts but the more developed ones are sometimes called in by the police to help track a murderous pedophile or other heinous criminal because they are able to take on the tortured emotions of the assailant. Utilizing Clairempathy, a type of telepathy to sense or feel within one’s self, the attitude, emotion or ailment of another person or entity.

They are sensitive to the visible as well as the invisible and pick up on body language, tone of voice, body movements, the words people choose when they speak, the words they avoid, the logic they use; and the hidden things that only an empath can sense inside another person. It is not uncommon for an empath to “freak out” for no apparent reason, only to discover later that a friend or family member went through some sort of trauma at that exact moment. So essentially an empath is someone whose feeling sensory is extraordinarily heightened, meaning they receive the majority of their psychic input from what they feel.

Since they’re being assaulted constantly by emotions which do not originate internally, they can’t figure out why they feel the way that they do, and therefore can’t address the core issues. Since empathy isn’t something you can really ditch it’s sometimes difficult to sort out what the Empath truly feels in a given situation or what they are taking on from someone else. This can prove to be very confusing!Empath Confusion

Emotions that create powers that have been known to be God like in nature. Emotions that build on inside only to be shared with those around you. Emotional empaths are so sensitive that they can absorb the negative emotions of others in their body, and actually take it on. So when an empath is around somebody who is anxious, they can actually absorb that energy into their body, when it isn’t even their own anxiety.

Empaths are born, and they’re born unskilled and are generally very understanding of others and their positions, and often times will ask questions rather than make snap judgments, or intuitively seem to ‘know’ there is more to a story than what meets the eye. They are sensitive to TV, videos, movies, news and broadcasts. Violence or emotional dramas depicting shocking scenes of physical or emotional pain inflicted on adults, children or animals can bring an empath easily to tears.

Empaths are people who don’t “read” the future, or predict it they “read” people, and their energy although sometimes it depends on the person being read, too. They’re often problem solvers, thinkers, and studier’s of many things. As far as empaths are concerned, where a problem is, so too is the answer.

They are the psychic sponges of the world, soaking up all the psychic and emotional static that other people give off. Being an Empath is one of the most common and most challenging of all the psychic gifts.

So as you can see being am empath can be both a blessing…and a curse!

Are You Highly Sensitive?

Copyright, Elaine N. Aron, 1996

Instructions: Answer each question according to the way you personally feel. Check the box if it is at least somewhat true for you; leave unchecked if it is not very true or not at all true for you.

If you are a parent trying to evaluate your child, please use the test “Is Your Child Highly Sensitive?

    • I am easily overwhelmed by strong sensory input.
    • I seem to be aware of subtleties in my environment.
    • Other people’s moods affect me.
    • I tend to be very sensitive to pain.
    • I find myself needing to withdraw during busy days,into bed or into a darkened room or any place where I can have some privacy and relief from stimulation.
    • I am particularly sensitive to the effects of caffeine.
    • I am easily overwhelmed by things like bright lights, strong smells,coarse fabrics,or sirens close by.
    • I have a rich,complex inner life.
    • I am made uncomfortable by loud noises.
    • I am deeply moved by the arts or music.
    • My nervous system sometimes feels so frazzled that I just have to go off by myself.
    • I am conscientious.
    • I startle easily.
    • I get rattled when I have a lot to do in a short amount of time.
    • When people are uncomfortable in a physical environment I tend to know what needs to be done to make it more comfortable (like changing the lighting or the seating).
    • I am annoyed when people try to get me to do too many things at once.
    • I try hard to avoid making mistakes or forgetting things.
    • I make a point to avoid violent movies and TV shows.
    • I become unpleasantly aroused when a lot is going on around me.
    • Being very hungry creates a strong reaction in me,disrupting my concentration or mood.
    • Changes in my life shake me up.
    • I notice and enjoy delicate or fine scents, tastes, sounds, works of art.
    • I find it unpleasant to have a lot going on at once.
    • I make it a high priority to arrange my life to avoid upsetting or overwhelming situations.
    • I am bothered by intense stimuli, like loud noises or chaotic scenes.
    • When I must compete or be observed while performing a task, I become so nervous or shaky that I do much worse than I would otherwise.
    • When I was a child, my parents or teachers seemed to see me as sensitive or shy.
  • Total
  • Scoring:If you answered more than fourteen of the questions as true of yourself, you are probably highly sensitive. But no psychological test is so accurate that an individual should base his or her life on it. We psychologists try to develop good questions, then decide on the cut off based on the average response.If fewer questions are true of you, but extremely true, that might also justify calling you highly sensitive.  Also, although there are as many men as women who are highly sensitive, when taking the test highly sensitive men answer slightly fewer items as true than do highly sensitive women.

    • I am listening right now! I haven’t been on here much lately so I missed your post – so sorry! I LOVE singing bowls and crystal bowls too! Thank you – perfect timing.

    • Your so welcome. I’ve been thinking of you guys a lot lately and hope there are still smiles at your house. As long as the Pa is DIYing I’m pretty sure there are smiles right?!
