Empathic/Sensitives

I'm an empath to some extent, but being in a crow doesn't really bother me. I can know the general mood of the group as a whole or of an individual that is nearby and alone. My fiance is a sensitive in many ways and she can't handle the masses in general without overloading. I'm wondering, how sensitive are you? How do you deal with it, any tricks?

First.....did you use the word fiance? Oh wonderful. Congrats to you both! Second....my gran always said I was 'fey Irish'. For years I thought that meant I was strange in some way, which was not really news to me. As I travelled my spiritual path to where I am today, I realized what she really meant. I'm an empath, but I don't really know how deep my senstivities are. I'm still exploring that. My Paganism is a big help though and I'm able to do more and more all the time. And then my scientific brain kicks in and questions whether or not I'm subjecting myself to the power of suggestion............and visualization. But as I said, still working on it and learning something new all the time.

I'm trying to use both spiritual and scientific to explore and understand myself and this field I find myself in. Always growing and learning.

I used to tell my kids, that a day without having learned something new, no matter how small was a day wasted. And having been a single mother since they were very young, I always tried to answer their questions with scientific fact. I was so glad when they got old enough to understand that science is simply the rational mind seeking answers to the unexplainable and that they can co-exist without dissection.

I have always lived by that philosophy, one of the things I found in common with you, sweetie. I am always striving to learn new things. My mind is always open to learn. It is like food, necessary somehow to forge on with life. I feel stagnant otherwise and will fall into depression.

as yer well aware of.. im on the extreme end of "sensitive" empathically as well as other areas of "gifts" when you couple them all together at the same time.. where i will not only see whats happened.. feel whats happened.. hear what happened.. and generally (and sometimes, quite literally) BECOME someone else for a short period of time.. i end up quite a mess occaisionally. how do i deal? usually in the fetal position whining to you .

I'm not sure what "being in a crow" means, but I guess it means you don't know what empathic means. To the best of my knowledge, it means having the ability to feel what others around you are feeling, a sort of sympathetic ability.

Yep, I'm clueless, but want to learn all I can. You said it in your original post, so I always ask what I do not understand. I never assume. That only gets me in trouble. I could have powers I have yet to discover but I haven't even tried yet. That would be really interesting.

You are a very grounded person Annie. I think your empath abilities tend to bend more towards the animal world. A very useful talent to have.

when I was younger I was overly sensitive to the pain of others and anything that I could see or picture in my mind - however it's started to dim down but sometimes I can feel pain depending on the situation. I don't mind it though - I have learnt to deal with it~
