Hi everyone! I haven't been on here for awhile but used to be a frequent flyer. Don't know if the people I used to talk to are still here. This is where I learned the type of empath I am. I am a Scorpio and an intuitive empath. Some sort of empath runs in my genes. Looking for help or someone who can guide me to where I can go for people like me. It's bad enough I feel like a freak... but something changed in the universe & I need to find people who understand. I need help in understanding what I'm feeling. I learned last week that all empaths are feeling something. I crossed a barrier within the last 3 weeks & it opened up a whole new realm. The wall/barrier I had learned to build so I wouldn't feel other people's emotions. Being able to feel people's underlying intentions is aplified... always felt that but worse now. I'm not used to it & it's affecting personal relationships. Any help is appreciated.

Need help with empath question
RE: Possible psychic medium?
Thank you so much for the comments and help. I have not intentionally avoided this thread. I was honestly worried what everyone's insight might be. After reading Shuabby's reply... I had to take a few days to process what she said and make sense of what I was feeling.
Here's what I've come up with.... I don't know the exact injuries as I am still too afraid to ask. But... The night after the accident, I prayed and asked to know what happened. At one point... I felt this crushing feeling at the bottom of my sternum that stretched from one side of my abdomen to the other. It was hard to breathe and I tried to disconnect myself by changing my thoughts and thinking of something else.
All other events I've explained the best I can above. I've been intentionally blocking... So I haven't felt the same intense feelings since my original post. I can still get the nauseous feeling... But I'm trying to be more aware of when I get it. I feel particularly uneasily when I have to personally draw up the legal papers for the estate. If drawn up many estate documents... But these are different.
I think everyone is right. I am overwhelmed with outside feelings. Paddifluff is right I think in that I am absorbing my husband's and his friend's parents feelings. I'll be quite honest.... That sucked... But I don't know how to tone it down to avoid my physical feelings.
Being an empath has never been much fun for me.... But this tragedy has definitely showed me that I need to learn better skills to cope. I'd like to talk more with the ones that commented if I can.
Thank you everyone that helped me understand! I can't express enough in words how much it helps. I'm not scared to be a medium... But i'll just stick with being an empath for now.
Possible psychic medium?
Hi! I was hoping someone could help me with a couple of questions.
I am a Scorpio woman. I come from a long line of mediums, gypsies, and empaths. I myself am an intuitive empath... albeit not at my full potential right now.
Anyways, I have never, that I know of, been a medium or communicated with anyone that has passed. A recent tragedy that happened last week has made me question this.
A young man, 34, from our small community was killed in a rollover car crash after he was ejected. My husband was his best friend. He was with this man before the crash and then was the one to find him afterwards. The cause of the crash is still being investigated.
Ok, being an empath, I feel other people's feelings, whether I want to or not. I've struggled with this my whole life and try to avoid situtations where I will get overwhelmed as I am still learning to build my wall.
Since the accident, especially when I am alone and thinking about this man and the tragedy, I start to feel overwhelmed, anxious, a little nauseous, and stressed. It takes a while for me to calm myself down. I've been trying to use nature as my grounding to calm myself. So, I've essentially decided that these feelings were not only grief but also my empath abilities in full swing.
However, this is where I get confused. Yesterday, I was with this man's parents at my work (I work for a lawyer). In the 15 minutes they were around me, I started to feel extremely tense. Right before they left and for awhile afterwards, I started to feel extremely nauseous and had a heavy feeling on my chest. I also felt the same later in the evening after I was talking to my husband about his friend. My husband left shortly after the conversation and the feelings became stronger.
What is causing this? I've never felt this intense feeling before. I personally was not very close with this man, but when I am around people who were, it is almost as if I am feeling him and it is overwhelming. Is this normal? Is this what a medium feels when they are in contact with someone who has passed? Or is this my empath on high alert?
I'm confused and was hoping someone could help me find some answers as to why I am getting this physical feeling and how to understand what is going on.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
Hi! I was hoping someone could give me a reading. I'm at a crossroads in my life and I don't know what to do. Recent dramatic events in my life and surrounds have confused me and now I'm not sure what to do. I can elaborate on any of this... just ask.
I am a Scorpio woman. DOB 11/11/1978.
RE: Taurus Girl-Calling Out To All Scorpios!!!!!Please Read
Hi Asia118x! As a Scorpio, I think I can help you here. Hopefully I can give you answers.
As an empath, I think I can offer more of a personal feeling since you gave very detailed descriptions of what happened.
Keep in mind, though, while almost every true Scorpio shares the same traits, we are all still individuals and each of us has our own circumstances.
Ok, I had to read just YOUR posts a couple of times to get the actual feeling of what happened.
I can first say that it wasn't you. And, that you probably couldn't have done anything to save the relationship. I think he did really care for you. I also don't doubt that he still does, but probably not in the same way. I think he still thinks about you. But, to contact you would mean reopening a chapter he has probably tried to close.
Scorpios are very secretive and mysterious. We never tell anyone everything. I have a best friend, whom I've had as a child, and I tell her maybe 90% of everything. I also only tell my own husband about 60% of what is going on with me. Both of those estimates are probably still too high. It has nothing to do with trust, it is just our nature not to disclose everything.
Also, Scorpios are very physical. We want to be able to physically share our feelings with someone else. Without the physical connection, then we will start to disconnect emotionally. This is the main reason why long distance relationships don't last with Scorpios. There are the exceptions to the rule, but generally long distance relationships are not successful.
I think that you handled the breakup very well. Dragging everything out probably would have made things worse. The more you push, the more we pull away. So, ending things the way you did was probably the best.
Scorpios are all or nothing. So, if you two haven't talked in 3 months, odds are he probably won't contact you now. It's hard to say how he would react if you tried to contact him now. We tend to be very cold when not interested, so his response, if anything, may not be what you are looking for.
I hope this helps a little. I know I missed some parts of the story. I could probably write you a book on here about what happened, but I just tried to summarize.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Sorry I disappeared for a few days. lol I've been sick and had to work and neither let me get back to the forum.
@Shadowmist... Yes, I do want/need to learn how to build my barriers. I know TheCaptain has a lot of good advice. I had talked to her last year about some of this stuff. I will have to find her in the threads to see what she advises about this. Also, I never thought about a pendant, or are they called talismans? I'll have to look into that. One thing I have practiced in the past is meditation (to me is just sitting quietly and clearing my head). It has worked in general, but in more crowded situations, the "noise" is very overwhelming.
@Asia118X.... I will find your thread and see if I can help. Keep in mind, though, I am not a psychic and I may not be able to help much at all. But, I will sure try.
@ Ibelieve.... I completely agree! A lot of the sites I've found have not been helpful at all! Just the other day, I had someone tell me in one community that I it is a disgrace that I can't just accept my 'gift' and live with it. Not at all the feedback I was looking for! I also agree that the term "empath" has become very much associated with the healthcare community. But, I will definitely check out the site you suggested. After reading your comment, I think we are very much alike! What you said it true. One of my biggest problems is that I do take on other people's emotions and then direct them towards myself. Definitely have some learning to do!
@ReeseyReese... I know what you mean. They both go hand in hand, and seem to compliment each other.
Hi Asia118X! Well, all I can really offer is some definitions. I hope some of the other empaths will help out.
The basic definition of empathy is the capability to share another person's emotions and feelings. Now, that is a basic human response. Almost all of us can tell when someone is upset either by just looking at them or talking to them, more so if we are close to the person. I say 'almost' because there are some people that are incapable of feeling other's emotions. lol
By definition, intuitive means "a natural tendency to see clearly."
Ok, so to be an intuitive empath means to take the above definitions and to intensify them to a more deeper level.
Here's another definition of an intuitive empath... An individual who is particularly sensitive to the psychic emanations of his or her surroundings, even to a degree of telepathically receiving and experiencing the emotions of others in their proximity.
The only way to tell if you have this ability, in my opinion, is to do some searching.
This probably didn't help much, but I hope it did.
This is more of a consensus than anything. But, it is also to confirm my suspicion that the spring time holds a spiritual significance.
For some reason, I personally have not put my finger on, during the spring time... mainly March and April... I am drawn towards the past.
To be more specific (and personal)... during the spring months, I tend to seek out my mother's family. She committed suicide when I was very young and I was cut off from her side of the family right after her death. I never got to know their names, anything about her or them.... nothing. While she was born and died in Nov and I was born in Nov, I never was able to connect the spring time with her and why I would feel a strong need to seek out her family, my past, etc. However, every March/April, I seem to start searching, sort of out of the blue. I acutally never noticed my pattern until this year.
So, this year, I finally was able to connect with two of my mother's sisters. I had asked one of them what the significance of spring was and why I always felt a pull towards finding out about my past. Here was her response...
"As far as the spring is concerned, I don't know if there is a tangable reason for your feelings, but I too feel a pull to all things past in the spring..I like to think of it as my new beginning every year."
So.. personal stuff aside... do other people feel this same pull during the spring?
Just wondering, and thanks if you decide to reply.
Hi everyone! I haven't been on here for awhile. I hope I'm putting this in the right thread. I know I'm kind of fishing in the dark, but I'm hoping the right people will read this.
I explored this last year with some of you on here. I'm an intuitive empath. This gift/ability still controls my life as I have not been able to learn how to build my barrier and cover my 'eye' when I need to. I'm hoping I can reconnect with those of you that have this ability.
One of the 'abilities' of an empath is being able to tell when someone else says they have the same ability, when they only really have a more shallow version of the ability. I understand there are different levels. I've looked into a few "empath" communities, but have apparently not found the right ones to meet my needs as I have more of a deeper ability than some people... and about lost it when one guy said he became an empath after he had some kind of surgery. While I am not judging, these are not the people I'm looking to connect with... I would prefer the more seasoned empaths and the people that struggle with the same problems that I have.
I just recently found out from my mother's sister than I come from a long line of evangelicals, gypsies, and self-described mediums. I did not know this, but knew my abilities had roots. While I have not explored any of these other abilities and where they fall within my family, I do know that my mother was an empath as well. Her other abilities I do not know as she committed suicide when I was very young. I do have other abilities, none of which I've really tried to hone, and seem very small when compared to my empath ability.
I hope someone will answer who can help. I've tried other communities, but I keep coming back to this one... probably because I've interacted with a few of the regulars before and know they are genuine.
Anyways, I hope someone can help. Thanks!
Ok.... I tried reading through the whole "men of the zodiac" thread and didn't have the time to read it all, so I'm starting a new thread. LOL!
I am a Scorpio woman (11/11/78) and very much a Scorpio! (I was born in Omaha, NE) The man in question is a Pisces (4/2/78). (I think he was born in Lincoln, NE, or within a few miles of there.
Anyways, this guy was my high school sweetheart. I dated him for 3 years during high school and even was engaged to him. We ended up going our separate ways because he was a year older than me and went to college while I was a Senior in high school.
So...... fast forward 12 years... and we ran into each other at a retirement party. He was with his wife and I had my youngest child with me.
He acted like the whole world stopped when I was there! He didn't even pay attention to his wife. I got the feeling that he wanted to say something to me, but we were never alone long enough to talk one on one. I left the party without saying goodbye to him and didn't talk to him for a little over a year.
I finally put my facebook page up and found him and decided to say hi. That was a week ago. Today, he calles or texts me everyday and says that he is an idiot for letting me go. He has admitted that is the woman he married was just him settling because he couldn't find me. I am married with children, so is he. But, he continues to say that letting me go was the biggest mistake he ever made.
My question is how does a Pisces man and Scorpio woman fit together? He knows my flaws and downsides and accepts all of them. He has appoligized over and over about letting me go and is trying to make up for lost time. I don't know what to do with him! I am married to a Virgo. But, I really love my Pisces man. So, I think I'm asking for advice in what to do now.
Thanks, and Cheers!!
