Years ago I met a wise woman who could feel stuck energy with her hands. When she ran them across a wall she could feel different vibrations of energy. At the time, this seemed like an unusual gift to have, yet a fascinating one. She would use this gift to space clear people’s homes and offices. She would tune into the feel of a place and could sense the energetic harmony or disharmony. Fast forward years later and little would I know that I could do *kinda* similar things. If you are reading this and don’t have this or similar abilities, hold tight one day you might!
The energetic empathic life is an interesting one since there isn’t so much in day to day life known and expressed about it. Luckily these days we have the internet to be able to discover more about these abilities. While they seem fascinating since they are not used in everyday life by all, there are pros and cons to the gift. While it is great since you have insight to know things and feel things, some things you just don’t want to know or feel! TMI alert.
My first insights into “something was going on with me” was when I began to be able to feel the energy from certain websites I visited. Some of them had such an incredible feel to them, I knew this was some sort of guidance. My hands would get really hot and tingle. Sometimes my crown chakra would tingle if it was a higher vibration. I took this to mean that this site had something to offer vibrationally (but it was up to me to be open to it). Exactly what the connection meant I didn’t always know, but it was definitely life enhancing.
Not long after, I noticed when I watched violent movies that I took on the pain from the movie. I would feel the pain run from my butt to the backs of my knees usually when someone in the movie fell or was hurt in some way. I wasn’t necessarily feeling it where that person would if it was a real life fall or injury. It was such a normal part of my life to feel this pain that I didn’t realize this didn’t happen to others. I still have not resolved this and therefore can’t watch a lot of mainstream movies that are violent unless they have enough substance to keep me hooked. But that is the point, if you are hurting, don’t watch it! I still hope for another solution, like a shielding technique. If you know of any that work for this, let me know! Otherwise this is definitely not life enhancing!
I’ve noticed my empathic abilities increasing recently. This can make life even more of a zoo to contend with. “Is that my emotion or so and so’s next to me? Hmmm. Let’s try to sort this out.” Or “this place feels awful.” Or lately I’ve noticed I cannot look at some people in the eye since the energy emanating from their eyes feels almost scary. I feel like I deflect the evil eye. Sometimes I wonder how empaths can even exist in this density. Seriously. First we have our own emotions to deal with, then we also feel others’? Uh, don’t we do enough here without having the added responsibility of others’ emotions? And what is the point of it anyway?
There are also beautiful things that happen. I can tell when people have open hearts when I walk by them. Once I look at them, I feel my heart opening in that case. I recently gave a homeless man some money and he told me “Que Dios te bendiga/God Bless you” and his blessing was so powerful I burst into tears. I can feel how pets being walked around town feel. I even felt the relief from a bunch of kale brush my being as I took off the twist tie around it! I definitely didn’t need the relief, but the kale sure did. That was a first. And of course you can start feeling the energy of things like crystals or choose things you buy based on their energy. I’ve felt the positive energy from a car one day, or the person driving it. It sometimes feels like the world is coming to life.
All of these experiences brought me back to Dr. Hew Len and ho’oponopono. He talks to everything, giving things love since everything is consciousness. He receives messages back from things as well; even about how the things feel. 🙂 So in case you too are receiving empathic feelings from things as of late, remember you are not some sort of lunatic. You are just connecting to a greater awareness. Once connected to a greater awareness, we change our actions in the world to respect all of consciousness. A nice reminder during these accelerated times!
