SPIRITUAL UNITE: “Are You An Empath Or Clairsentient?”

pineal-gland-600x372

Description of an empath: Empath is someone who can sense and feel emotions and energies of other people, animals and even objects.

Description of a clairsentient: Someone who is clairsentient can perceive energy using physical sensations, which includes a individual’s aura and vibrations (words and voice). They also have the ability to sense the presence of non-physical entities such as ghosts.

Clear Feeling And Clear Sensing

Another term for clairsentience is clear feeling or clear sensing. This ability is within an empath’s capability of sensing and feeling another person’s energy and emotions. They also have the ability to read residual emotions on objects, which is known as psychometry.

If you are someone who can detect energy within the space. You can detect energy even when no one is around, or even when they don’t display any emotions. Then it is likely you are also clairsentient and not just an empath.

The following sensations will manifest if you are an empath and clairsentient:

  • You have the ability to feel what another person is feeling even when they don’t display any emotion.
  • You feel anxiety in a place or around a person for no apparent reason.
  • Sometimes you feel heavy when you meet someone or walk into a room.
  • You can sense when people are holding back their emotions.
  • You experience a sudden change in mood.
  • You can sense the presence of the non-physical entity.
  • You feel uncomfortable in crowded places.
  • You get that headache feeling or pressure around your head.

If you’re an empath and clairsentient and you have worked out how to manage your abilities and to protect yourself from negative experiences, you can achieve a lot with your ability.

Tuning Into Your Ability

Being in this physical world, you will always have the capacity to tune into your extrasensory gifts, which is clairsentience. However many of us don’t follow our intuitions because they don’t seem logical or can be proven. You will probably sit up and notice when your intuition was in fact correct.

Develop Your Gut Feelings

When you listen to your gut feelings, you have another great source of information. Your gut feelings come from a higher version of yourself, which is a form of psychic connection with your higher self. Some gut feelings can also originate from the surroundings you are in, an example would be, you are in a place you don’t get a good feeling about it and think you should leave.

The only way to develop your gut feelings is to follow them. I’m sure you have been in a situation where you had two options, the first felt more logical to you and the other you had an excellent feeling. Later you discovered the logical option never worked out for you.

When you are actively developing your gut feelings, you become more attuned to it and trust it more often. Which then open up your clairsentient ability to feel, seek and know.

Sensing Others

Practice sensing other people’s energy, each day when you are out and about, and you are walking past strangers, practice sensing and see if you can feel the positive or negative energy. What is the energy you get from them? You can do the same with groups of people in a social environment, do their energy differ? Practice this and simply start to tune into others when you encounter them to learn what it feels like to sense others.

Empaths be like...

CHRISTINA SARICH: ” 4 Super Powers Of The Highly Empathic”

mind-brain-storm-140721

Many empathic or highly sensitive people feel that their ability to feel so many different emotional energies in their environments is a curse, but with recent research suggesting that empaths are actually highly psychic, you may want to hone your empathic skills instead of hiding them away, or bemoaning their existence.  Here are 4 super-powers of empathic people, that you too can develop:

1.) Read People’s Minds

Empaths have a form of psychic ability that is considered a rare gift.

Mind reading isn’t a parlor trick.  We all do it to some degree, taking cues from people’s body language, and verbal discourse.  A skilled non-verbal decoder can tell if someone is lying, someone is happy or sad (even if they claim to be the opposite), or if they are manipulating others with their speech and gestures.  We can all be ‘mentalists’ picking up on inconsistencies in someone’s words and body language, but empaths take it a step further.

Many empaths receive psychic images, statements, hues, or smells intuitively which indicate to them, a reality beyond which most are aware.  If you pick up on these energies unwillingly, you could instead focus on them, and see if you can create an even stronger psychic experience, turning your empathic skills into full-blown ESP.  Then you can literally walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, and know exactly what that would feel like. IMAGINE the possibilities.

How many wrong turns, missteps, or arguments could you avoid?  How much success could you experience learning from others’ mistakes?  Knowing when someone is lying, or telling the truth?  Priceless.  Instead of shunning your empathic ability to feel everything — use it to become a true mind reader.

2.) Become Your Own Emotion Superhero

If you have a crazy ability to empathize with others, why not turn this around, and use it to your own benefit?  So many people today are completely disconnected from their own emotions.  You aren’t.  This may seem like a tremendous burden — feeling what they ought to feel, AND feeling what you feel, but if you were able to develop some discernment, and focus on your own emotional growth, this gift can become your greatest super power.

The act of listening to your own feelings and thoughts is self-empathy — it’s compassion in action.  It could completely and utterly change how you communicate with people.

For instance, let’s say you are visiting family for the holidays or a long weekend and one of your uncles says, “Don’t you know this president is going to ruin the nation?”  Your internal dialogue as an empath might be something like, “Oh my God, he has no clue how every person is affecting this country, and this planet, and the people who are running the show aren’t presidents or politicians, they may not even be on this planet! What an idiot.”  This is what your emotional triggers might be around a simple statement that someone from your family makes.  But what if you honored those feelings and learned how to communicate them lovingly?

What if instead, you internally stated, “Wow, hearing what my uncle just said alarms me, to the point of even feeling panicked because that statement doesn’t agree with the world I see, or how I believe this Universe is formed, and I’m scared of being at odds with my family member.”  Super power indeed.

Empaths can trigger heart-based communication by honoring their emotions.

You could instead say to your Uncle from this emotionally aware place, “Yes, we all ruin the world a little or make it closer to a paradise every day by the thoughts, deeds, and actions we engage in.”  This statement might go over his head, or open up a whole different type of dialogue that is more in alignment with who you are.

3.) Transmute the Negative Only You Can Feel

So many people are affected by negative influences which are invisible in the world today.  Empaths are acutely aware of this.  An empath can even walk into a room where a negative conversation or act just transpired, and though it isn’t currently happening, they can sense the negative energy that lingers.

Flowers can change the energy of an environment.

Instead of being a victim of this sensitivity to energy —  look for positive energy first, and TRANSMUTE that negative energy.  Practice a quiet five-minute Tonglen meditation.  Bring high-energy plants or flowers to a place with low energy, or simply utter encouraging words and thoughts to people around you who were also affected by the negativity.  Even better?  Find the humor in the situation and share it.  Even the most vile circumstance has a funny side to it.  Use laughter to literally create intimacy and openness where there was none.

4.) Turn Your Sensitivity Into a Highly Coveted Skill

Do the wrong sheets make you break out in hives?  Are certain smells absolutely revolting to you?  Do non-organic foods cause you terrible gastrointestinal distress?  Do you need quiet in order to sleep, and alone time in order to off-load all the smells, sights, sounds, and emotions you’ve absorbed all day long?  Instead of looking at this trait as if it were a burden, use it to your advantage.

Need more beauty and peace as an empath?  Create it yourself.

You could become a perfumer, and advise companies on removing chemicals and adding natural scents to their products.  You could help others eat divinely prepared food by becoming an organic chef.  You could develop quiet spaces like gardens, libraries, or meditation rooms that not only you need, but that others would revel in, without even realizing that they were desperate for your gift.  Use those sensitivities to create a peaceful haven in the world, and your empathic skills are no longer a curse, but used to fulfill your life’s purpose.

There are many more ways you can put your empathic super-powers to good use.  Feel free to share your ideas in the comments section, or when you share this article to social media.

RAVEN FON: “16 Things You’ll Notice When You’re In The Presence Of An Empath”

in-the-presence-of-an-empath

“Yes, we notice a lot of what goes on around us—

but you’ll notice some things about us too.”

~Raven Fon

 

Can you remember an instance when someone, a complete stranger, poured their heart out to you?  It probably happened without warning, and the emotions they were feeling were coursing through your heart as well.

There is something magnetic about an empath; they have a force that draws other’s towards them.  These people who open up to you, they don’t know why they do it— and it doesn’t matter.  We give them comfort and reassurance, and after riding the roller-coaster with them, we do our best to help them find peace.

I can’t count how many experiences I have had like that— what about you?

Author of Non-Violent Communication,  Marshall Rosenberg, gives us a concise definition of what empathy really is:

 

“In empathy, you don’t speak at all.  You speak with the eyes.  You speak with the body.  If you say any words at all, it’s because you are not sure you are with the person.  So you may say some words.  But the words are not empathy.  Empathy is when the other person feels the connection to with what’s alive in you.”

So, yes, we notice a lot of what goes on around us— but you’ll notice some things about us too.

 

16 SIGNS YOU’RE IN THE PRESENCE OF AN EMPATH

 

1.  We are often told we’re “too sensitive” or “too emotional.”

Empaths aren’t “too” this or that.  What others describe as “over-feeling” is really just being in-touch with emotions— theirs and yours.

2.  We really dislike being lied to.

It barely takes a glance in your direction and we know you’re lying.  The majority of people hate being lied to, but it really sucks for an empath.  It literally makes our skin feel gross and we feel that disgust every time we are around them.

3.  Negative images directly affect us.

Empaths find it nearly impossible to “unfeel” something.  The news?  Stories of violence and heartbreak on social media?  We avoid them like the plague.  We are well aware of the pain in the world, and we feel it daily.

4.  We feel overwhelmed by crowds.

Empaths encompass every personality type.  We are introverts, extroverts, and ambiverts.  Yet, even the most outgoing of us can become easily overwhelmed in crowds.  We absorb everyone’s feeling and energies… it’s exhausting, to say the least.

5.  We find happiness through healing.

Empaths are there to help; we try to guide you towards healing.  Just like with all of our advice, it only helps if you actually implement it in your life.

6.  We react differently to stimulants and medications.

Whether it is coffee or tea, soda or an energy drink, anything containing caffeine tends to make us feel more anxious or agitated than others.  Also, we do our best to avoid prescription medication as much as possible due to the numerous, and unpleasant, side effects we experience.

7.  We can’t be anyone except us.

If you’re looking for honesty and a true friendship, empaths are who you should be searching for (but we’ll likely find you first).  We have grown into who we are, and we embrace who we are becoming.  Usually, it is others who have an issue with our sensitivity and honest nature.

8.  We know what you are going through because we are going through it with you.

If you’re not feeling well, are feeling overwhelming sadness and depression, or if you’re agitated, we are going through all of those things with you.  We’re connected to those we care about, and we care about everyone.

9.  We have a special bond with animals.

Empaths don’t ‘own’ animals, and we don’t have pets.  We have family members.  Looking at animals in the wild, we see a perfect and pure soul… a love incapable of hate.  We have conversations with them as you would anyone else, and sometimes, we even get a response.

10.  We are usually tired, exhausted, and worn out.

We deal with more than just our personal emotions and mental drains, we deal with everyone else’s as well.  Every day we are around other people, we absorb, process, and release what those around us are experiencing.  And those are the lucky ones who have figured out how to process so they can release, instead of holding onto everything until they can no longer function.

11.  If you ask for our advice, please take it.

We listen to every word you say, we put ourselves in your shoes, and we deliver heartfelt advice.  Is it too much to ask for you to listen to it?  The thing is, we know what we are talking about— and you do too.  In fact, we are telling you the exact same thing that you know you should do.  We know it.  You know it.  So, and I mean this in the nicest way possible, either take the advice or stop asking because it wears on our patience.

12.  We become distracted rather easily.

Maybe it’s because of our heightened sensitivity to everyone and everything around us, but empaths tend to lose focus easily and become distracted.  There is a bright side to this: empaths notice and appreciate all the little things most people never take the time to notice.

13.  We genuinely detest narcissism.

Empaths can spot a narcissist a mile away, and that’s about as close as we like to get to one.

14.  We are hyper-sensitive to certain sounds.

A certain pitch, a slight buzz, and loud noises can really get to us.  However, it isn’t just sounds— we are also sensitive to textures, fabrics, and bright lights as well.  We experience the polar opposite too!  Gentle sounds, soft caresses, and delicate tastes are noticed just as intensely, but in a pleasing manner.

15.  We are excellent listeners.

Go on, tell us everything about your life from the seemingly insignificant, to the drastically transformative.  We will do more than listen— we will embark on that journey along side you, and experience every high and low found within.  On top of that, you never have to worry about any judgment on our part; we never want to hurt, only to help.

16.  Electronics act up around us.

I know this sounds strange to those who have not experienced it, but it happens.  We get shocked by touching the same things you normally do, and electronic equipment acts strange around us.  Computers glitch, cars stall, phones die— if it has a current or a charge, it is probably going to affect us or be affected by us.

 

For those of you who have read this article and telling yourself, “Finally! I have a word for all of this and it makes sense now!”  I am glad you have gained some insight into your gift.  And that is exactly what it is— a gift. It is something that we can learn from, and share with others.  Remember to make time for yourself, where your only focus is you.  Even just 5 minutes a day of silence and relaxed breathing can make a world of difference when it comes to handling emotional stress— and that’s good advice for everyone, not just empaths.

MICHAEL FORRESTER: “Science Finally Confirms That People Absorb Energy From Others”

science confirms! (3).png

A biological research team at Bielefeld University has made a groundbreaking discovery showing that plants can draw an alternative source of energy from other plants. This finding could also have a major impact on the future of bioenergy eventually providing the evidence to show that people draw energy from others in much the same way.

Members of Professor Dr. Olaf Kruse’s biological research team have confirmed for the first time that a plant, the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, not only engages in photosynthesis, but also has an alternative source of energy: it can draw it from other plants. The research findings were released this week in the online journal Nature Communications published by the renowned journal Nature.

Flowers need water and light to grow and people are no different. Our physical bodies are like sponges, soaking up the environment. “This is exactly why there are certain people who feel uncomfortable in specific group settings where there is a mix of energy and emotions,” said psychologist and energy healer Dr. Olivia Bader-Lee.

Plants engage in the photosynthesis of carbon dioxide, water, and light. In a series of experiments, Professor Dr. Olaf Kruse and his team cultivated the microscopically small green alga species Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and observed that when faced with a shortage of energy, these single-cell plants can draw energy from neighbouring vegetable cellulose instead. The alga secretes enzymes (so-called cellulose enzymes) that ‘digest’ the cellulose, breaking it down into smaller sugar components.

These are then transported into the cells and transformed into a source of energy: the alga can continue to grow. ‘This is the first time that such a behaviour has been confirmed in a vegetable organism’, says Professor Kruse. ‘That algae can digest cellulose contradicts every previous textbook. To a certain extent, what we are seeing is plants eating plants’. Currently, the scientists are studying whether this mechanism can also be found in other types of alga. Preliminary findings indicate that this is the case.

These are then transported into the cells and transformed into a source of energy: the alga can continue to grow. ‘This is the first time that such a behaviour has been confirmed in a vegetable organism’, says Professor Kruse. ‘That algae can digest cellulose contradicts every previous textbook. To a certain extent, what we are seeing is plants eating plants’. Currently, the scientists are studying whether this mechanism can also be found in other types of alga. Preliminary findings indicate that this is the case.

“When energy studies become more advanced in the coming years, we will eventually see this translated to human beings as well,” stated Bader-Lee. “The human organism is very much like a plant, it draws needed energy to feed emotional states and this can essentially energize cells or cause increases in cortisol and catabolize cells depending on the emotional trigger.”

Bader-Lee suggests that the field of bioenergy is now ever evolving and that studies on the plant and animal world will soon translate and demonstrate what energy metaphysicians have known all along — that humans can heal each other simply through energy transfer just as plants do. “Human can absorb and heal through other humans, animals, and any part of nature. That’s why being around nature is often uplifting and energizing for so many people,” she concluded.

Here are five energy tools to use to clear your space and prevent energy drains while releasing people’s energy:

Stay centered and grounded. If you are centered within your spiritual self (instead of your analyzer or ego) you will sense right away when something has moved into your space. If you are fully grounded, you can easily release other people’s energy and emotions down your grounding cord with your intention.

Be in a state of non-resistance. What we resists sticks. If you feel uncomfortable around a certain person or in a group, don’t go into resistance as a way to protect yourself as this will only keep foreign energy stuck in your space. Move into a state of non-resistance by imagining that your body is clear and translucent like clear glass or water. This way, if someone throws some invalidation at you, it will pass right through you.

Own your personal aura space. We each have an energetic aura surrounding our body. If we don’t own this personal space we are vulnerable to foreign energy entering it. Become aware of your aura boundaries (about an arms length away from your body all the way around, above and below) as a way to own your personal space.

Give yourself an energy cleanse. The color gold has a high vibration which is useful for clearing away foreign energy. Imagine a gold shower nozzle at the top of your aura (a few feet above your head) and turn it on, allowing clear gold energy to flow through your aura and body space and release down your grounding. You will immediately feel cleansed and refreshed.

Call back your energy. When we have our energy in our own space there is less room for other’s energy to enter. But as we focus on other people and projects we sometimes spread our energy around. Create an image of a clear gold sun several feet above your head and let it be a magnet, attracting all of your energy back into it (and purifying it in the gold energy). Then bring it down through the top of your aura and into your body space, releasing your energy back into your personal space.

SOUL SCIENCE: “8 Important Tips to Staying Balanced As An Empath”

 10 Important Tips to Stay Balanced As An Empath

Are you an empath? Do you feel like a sponge absorbing all the energy from people around you? This could be good or bad energy but nonetheless harmful to our minds and bodies in the long run. All humans have  male and female energies. One helps us with our thinking and the other symbolizes our emotions. Once the balance is gone, you feel out-of-place, irritated, tired, you find that you have less motivation and less energy. Empaths are mostly dominated by the female energy when they don’t know how to keep the balance in order to protect themselves. They are more intuitive, they sense things more and faster than others, they absorb others’ vibrations to the point where they can’t exercise their own will at times.If you are one of those people who find it hard to balance yourself as an empath, here are 8 tips to help you how:

  1. Take control of your emotions, get in charge

You are the boss! Repeat this, you are the boss! When you notice someone’s bad vibes or destructive emotional ups and downs, remind yourself this. Do not let these vibrations take control of your body and mind. Remember that you can have a protective shield around you and you are not a sponge. It is good to be intuitive, it is good to have strong senses, so use these qualities in a positive way for yourself and don’t let the information that flows into your system overpower you. Keep a mental distance that will enable you to see things from a healthier perspective.

  1. Your will power matters

Empaths find it hard to use their will powers to their advantage once they lose their balance. Sometimes, to the degree of feeling other people’s wills as if they’re their own. It might get confusing. In times like these, it is a good idea to take notes, write things down about you and what you need and what you want. Go back to these notes when you feel you are getting further away from yourself and about to take a path that is not meant to be yours. Never feel guilty for having will power, it does not make you selfish, it only makes you stronger and it protects you.

  1. Turn the lights off, mentally

When you realize things are getting overwhelming, and you find yourself consumed with bad or negative vibrations coming from all corners, shut down your channels. It is like turning the lights off mentally, it is your way of telling yourself enough! Because you need time on your own and away from all these mind tangling energies around you to sort out where you are, where you should be, what your feelings are and how you can help yourself.

  1. Know when to run

When we say run, of course we don’t mean it in a bad way. You have people you care about and they need your help and support, but when you find yourself in an emotionally draining situation, or if this is a repeating situation that leaves you drained and unmotivated, it is time to run. Get yourself out of that situation. Listen to the signs your mind and your body are giving you. Trust your gut feelings and if something doesn’t feel right do not get involved with it.

  1. Take good care of your body

A good diet can help you balance your immune system and metabolism. But not only that, when you have a balanced body, your energy levels will be higher and you will feel healthier. Make a list when you eat things and figure out which ones give you discomfort and which ones make you feel sick or tired. Try to eat natural organic foods and stay away from processed foods as much as you can. Yoga, tai-chi, martial arts, jogging, walking… any exercise will help your brain release more endorphins naturally and this will help you tremendously in finding back your balance too.

  1. Don’t forget your mind

You need to take care of your mind too as much as your body. You need those gray brain cells to function properly. A daily meditation, especially mindfulness meditation can help you with this. You can also try transcendental meditation. They both help keep you in the present moment and with breathing exercises and repeating mantras, you can reorganize your brain and get rid of the thoughts that are not useful to you and that are giving you stress and anxiety.

  1. Positive affirmations

When we put our focus and energy into something that we really want, we have the power to achieve it. Positive affirmations help us in this area. Repeating them daily reprograms our brains and boosts our self-esteem and keeps us focused on our path to self-improvement. Positive affirmations also help us in times when we feel weak and we need to recharge our batteries. Just a few minutes devoted to this practice daily will soon help you in need of emergency. Use this moment when you repeat these affirmations as an emergency break to pull yourself out of a situation and quickly regain your focus and energy.

  1. Reduce your consumption of certain things

Alcohol, caffeine, drugs that are stimulants… All these things are bad habits for everyone but especially when you are an empath they are worse for you. Imagine this: you have your radar on, scanning everyone and everything around you and it’s on autopilot. This scan happens constantly and the results are coming in by the seconds. You are very vulnerable and open to emotional breakdowns. Because your mind doesn’t know how to rest and you get emotionally involved in these things too. Caffeine and drugs that give stimulation will give you panic and anxiety and alcohol will bring you down and make you weaker too. Stay away from these bad habits as much as you can to protect your inner balance.
