View Full Version : Being An Empath

December 27th, 2005, 08:31 PM
Merry Meet all. I first off want to say that I just joined and this is my first post. Okay, anyways, a few years back I started noticing how I was able to feel a person's feelings and pain and with a little research I found out that I was an empath...so my question is, does anyone have anything that can help me better understand it and maybe how to control what I feel?

You're definitely not alone. I went years not knowing what was going on! First thing I recommend, is learn: grounding and shielding (emphasis on shielding). Start out with a simple shield and you can gradually make it more complex if you feel the need. Don't totally shut yourself off unless in an emergency. Make your shield block the negative (so you don't take it into yourself) but allows you to 'see' it. Then send it to Mother Earth or something like that.

You can also check out the class in COTs teaching for 'Magical Self Defense'. Examples of grounding, centering and shielding are listed there. She puts in lots of different examples and links.
