“Energy vampire” are really just people who don’t have enough of their own energy or lost their connection with the source energy. So when you come in contact or proximity with them, you often feel drained.

Why?Empath Art

Well, they are untentionally taking your energy from you and whomever is nearby because they don’t have enough of their own. They are vibrating at such a low state of energy depletion that their system needs to constantly BORROW energy anywhere possible. And because empathic individuals are not as skilled at keeping personal boundaries, our energy leaks. It’s the easiest to take.

It crazy right?

Okay, so we can’t really do much for those people except send them blessings that they will find whatever is needed to help them feel complete and happy.

The most powerful thing we can do is refocus our awareness.

Ask yourself: “How can I increase my vibration?”

According to Caroline Myss, an amazing knowledgible person who specializes in energy work, says that we can work to heal our wounds. The wounds that have caused the holes in our energy systems causing the energy leakages. I highly recommend watching her videos, “The Energetics of Healing (1988).” Very enlightening and extremely helpful for energy sensors to understand where their energy might be leaking. From which chakras and where in their history to go back to to heal the leak(s).

I love the anology she used to clarify our energy leakage. She explains that everyone of us wakes up with a maximum deposit of $100 dollars worth of energy. And it’s up to us how we want to use it. She calls it “energy investing”. The secret is to invest our $100 into places that will yield back an interest just like a well investment in our finances “ROI” return on investment. In our case, it’s “ROE” return on energy. This is the rule of the game. We have to choose wisely where to invest our precise limited energy. Because it’ll be stupid of us to throw our money away, spend it on something that will cause us debts.

It’s interesting how she explains if we continue to have energy leakages then we’ll end up borrowing from our cell tissue in our body! Which over time can cause us health issues. For example, have you ever seen someone age a few years overnight? Because their system was so overstressed, they unknowingly had to tap into their body tissues and borrow energy from there causing them to age at a rapid rate.

What do I do to repair the holes and stop the energy leakage?

Caroline Myss covers it more in depth in her videos what specific questions to ask yourself in each of the chakras to find out where you are leaking your precious life source energy.

Let’s go over the third chakra because I feel it pertains to those of us who are more empathic the most. This is the chakra that holds our personal power. How you fell about your self: your self-esteem, self-respect, and your integrity. It’s also the place of your personal boundary.

You may have energy leakage here if you seek approvals from others. Or you say you were going to do something and then break your promise with yourself. Dishonoring your promise such as “I’m going to workout tomorrow and then don’t” this will cause distrust in yourself. Integrity is so important because you need to know you can count on yourself. Your body needs to know it can depend on you. Without integrity with yourself, more than likely you ability to function in this physical world is is not as stable as it could be. So start with rebuilding your integrity if that is off.

It’ll bring back your confidence and trust within yourself. This will help you strengthen your energy and your personal boundary. With a stronger boundary, you are vibrating at a higher positive vibration. You won’t have the need to lean on another for their approval. And your energy won’t be leaking to another for their approval. Your emotions will not be solely dependent on their response. You ‘ll have the power to say, “You know what, I don’t want to invest any of my $100 dollars of energy into that opinion, thought, or energy. ”

Watch your thoughts and anytime you catch one of these energy leakage, call it back.  This practice will help you keep your energy and maintain your boundary and calm.

Sometimes as much as the people who loves us want to understand what it is that we are going through, they just don’t know. No matter how hard they try. Yeah, they can be empathic and pretend how it would be like to be in our shoes and understand it that way. It’s nothing like the way we do it.angel statue

When we say we understand them. We mean it literally!

I mean, we can feel what they are feeling…emotionally, energetically, and physically! We are not pretending. Our body aches where they ached and we feel their emotions up and down.

As much as they want to try to understand. They just don’t. I can’t blame them. They are the way they are. Just as we are the way we are.

Which is why it’s so important to talk to another who is just like you and me. Who is also an energy sensor.

Let me tell you. It gets lonely sometimes. Even though my husband is also an empath. It’s just not enough, we need more than one outlet to connect.

It’s crazy when I think about it, because there is so many of us out there yet we are all isolated. Pockets here and there. It’s just our nature to want to be isolated and far away from the crowds. Nevertheless, there’s is still a lot of us out there. And sometimes we just want to know we are not alone. Completely alone.

I moved out here to a small remote island in the Philippines and sometimes it drives me a bit crazy. Especially, when I have those intense sensitivities…and I feel like the world gets way to big for me to handle.

Ever had one of those moments?

And you just need to bond with those who knows what you going through. Connect. Just to say, yeah I understand. I’m not COMPLETELY alone on this experience. It’s just so sad because there’s so many of us out there who are probably feeling the same. Feeling like we are the only one going through this or that experience and no body to really understand what we are feeling.

That’s why I made EmpathSolutions.com in the first place. So people like us can connect, bond, and share things that work for us to help us work through such experiences. And to not feel like we are an alien on this isolated world…ALONE, and no one understands us.

I invite you to get active on the website.

And besides this, I will be doing my first telesiminar where i can answer your biggest question or challenges as an empath, please email your questions to faey(at)empathsolutions(dot)com.

I can’t know if you don’t ask. No telepathy powers for me just yet. :-)

Are you sharing your empathic experience with others…and getting blank stares back…as if you were crazy?

It’s understandable because if they can’t relate then it’s a little more challenging to GET what is being shared. But that doesn’t mean what we are feeling isn’t real or invalid.

Take for instance, back in the coal mining days, they use to put a canary in the coal mine. So if there is any methane gas or deadly fumes (that’s undetectable to the human nose)…then the canary will die. This is the first sign of warning that something is seriously wrong. And miners need to evacuate the premises immediately.

As empaths, we work similar like that. We are the canaries in the coal mine. (But let’s hope that’s not all we are good for.)

We have a very keen sensitive system that allows us to pick up things faster. And like the canary, have a much more sensitive body structure that can easily detect things before hand. Which means we get affected easily. It’s just the way our body’s and energy field is structured. It’s not bad. It just is.

So for example when you eat something like processed food or hormonal meat versus grass feed meat – and you feel off – maybe it just doesn’t taste right, and it makes you queasy, you get a migraine, tired, sleepy, or feeling like you been eating something totally unnatural. That’s the canary in you signaling…warning this is bad stuff – not good for our body.

As compared to someone with more tolerance. You know them. You seen them. They just seem to eat whatever. And still be able to function. The processed food, the chemicals, the food additives, the preservatives just doesn’t seem to affect them that much. (At least not in the short term that is noticeable to them.) As opposed to you. A few bites of highly unnatural meat or processed food and it sends your head spinning. The next few hours or days, you feel like crap, as if you were partying and drinking all night long. And you’ll be detoxing and trying to recuperate from it if you ever it eat again…

Many of us empath might not know it yet, but due to our sensitive nature, we have to eat differently if we want to function at our optimal and reclaim our high vibrant energy back.

The food you choose to eat can kill or heal you. It’s a decision you have to make daily. It’s a choice that determines whether you keep your energy or be zapped of your energy – and even open the gateway to more negative unwanted energies.

This is by far the most crucial part for all empaths and highly sensitive individuals. You just don’t have that much cushion to play around with.

Eat the right food that will help fuel and power you. So you can continue to do what you are put on this earth to do. Live fully…and spread you gifts and beautiful talents to the world!

You know what’s tough about being an empath? We tend to feel others’ emotions and physical pains intensely. So much so that if we weren’t fully aware of our own state we’d likely confuse their pain and feelings as our own.

As much as we like to BLAME others for making us feel this way or that way… We just can’t afford to do so.

Why?

Well, if we lower ourselves to “why me” we start feeling weak. We start viewing ourselves as the VICTIM of others emotions – powerless to do anything. Then we risk lowering our vibrations. Which could mean a lot of things…

When we see ourselves as a victim. We get depressed. We don’t want to do anything anymore. Things just seem to look dark and gloomy for us.

Trust me… we can not afford to let our awareness down. That just makes cracks for more dirtier vibrations to come in and feed on our misery.

Ever heard of that saying, “Misery loves company.”

Well, it’s true.

When we’re down in this lower self – feeling defeated and blaming the world for all our troubles –  we pick up MORE negative thoughts, impulses, unwanted emotions and pain. We attract MORE of that similar lower vibration! We are doing ourselves a huge disservice.

What can we do about it?

The first step is acceptance. As empaths, it’s crucial we learn this one phrase: “It is what it is.” And learn to accept it is what it is. Afterwards, look for solutions – little things here and there – we know we can change to help us grow, learn, and THRIVE.

Here are 3 solutions you can use – after accepting what is – to stay in higher vibration:

  • Eating Healthy. Clean your body. Take care of it.  Put only premium fuel (food) in it.  This is one of the most crucial part of the puzzle. More importantly it’s one of the things we have total control over. You are in complete control of what you put into your body. We can always choose Healthy Foods to Eat.
  • Letting Go of Emotions. Clean emotional junk you’ve been holding onto. Take a look  at the emotions that are surfacing. Is there more to it? Do you need to feel your feelings and let that go?

  • Breathing. Breathe. You’ll be surprise how many of us are shallow breathing (me included). We can retrain our body to breathe deeply – like back when we were babies – from the diaphragm. This one thing can help us relax and let go of tension we hold in our body. This reduces so much unnecessary stress on our entire system.

So what’s the one thing you are doing to stay in high vibration after reading this article?

Below is an EmpathSolutions Forum question from one of our reader, Michael. In this post I’ll be answering Michael’s questions and going over traits specifically towards “thought empaths”… And how a thought empath can cultivate their telepathy abilities.

Question From A Reader:

I am a very sensitive Empath, and love it (mostly)! I learned the term Empath less then 2 weeks ago. Since then I have discovered my uncle, aunt, female cousin, and 3 girls I know are Empaths. A few days ago I had the pleasure of driving on of the Empaths home. This was my first interaction with her. As I was driving, she was giving me directions, I was stunned to realize I felt her thoughts (i.e. a sensation within me that meant “left”). No emotional content, just pure thought. Her thoughts were somewhat erratic, and she had a strong external (not internal) focus, making it much less likely her thoughts could be clearly perceived, but there they were, crystal clear.

Several years prior, during highschool summer vacation I was walking on a side walk alone, and a small group was walking towards me. As they approached, I perceived a thought from a girl, “you’re not bad looking” (again with no emotional energy attached). I replied (in thought) “you’re not bad yourself”. After we passed, the girl turned, as I did, and we stared at each other for a few moments. I could tell she heard me, and was equally confused. Until understanding this Empath thing, I didn’t know what to make of this (just another unexplained mystery in my life). Now I get it. With some people I feel their thoughts. Telepathy, without having some direct experience, it would have been very difficult to convince me telepathy was possible. I understand perceiving someone’s thoughts when the thoughts have an emotional charge. Without the energy behind it, I have always had difficulty understanding how thoughts can be perceived. It’s easy enough to convey what emotions and energies feel like, but I don’t know if I could accurately explain what a thought “feels like”.

There is another, more subtle phenomenon I experience (much more frequently). When I am with someone (that I have known, or just met), I often sense their thought patterns, again without emotions attached. I can take a situation, or decision, and project that into the lucid grasp I have of their thinking, and “perceive” how their mind/thinking would respond. This perception makes it possible for me to grasp how they would think without being in their presence. It doesn’t seem as though I am connecting with the person during this interpretation, it’s more like I have a template of their thinking. The insight I get through this type of perception of another is amazing, and useful.

As an example, I interacted with a friend’s wife, while helping them develop their business. Without previously understanding her, I perceived thought tendencies, that made it possible to explain to my friend specifically how his wife’s thinking interfered with the group dynamics. My friend couldn’t understand how I gained such an intimate knowing of his wife’s thinking after an hour of interaction. When he asked how I gained that perception, I told him I sense energy and emotions from others. But this was neither energy nor emotions, this was “perceiving” (feeling doesn’t seem accurate) her mind and thinking process.

I have always been keenly interested in what I refer to as “understanding the mind”. It seems as though that interest has been driven by my instinctive need, as an Empath, to connect with others. I’m wondering if my interest in “understanding the mind” has help to cultivate this lucid perception. (I intimately understand the power of attention.)

These phenomenon seem loosely similar because of the lack of emotion/energy driving them. (I know everything is energy, in it’s most basic form, but the emotion provides the “voltage” behind the thoughts, and there was none.) I sort of get the telepathy thing, but I NEED to understand the second phenomenon. Are these Empath traits, or is something else going on??? Any insight would be immensely appreciated.
Thank you for your thoughts.

Faey’s Answer:

Hi Michael,

I am glad to hear you are loving your new abilities. It’s always nice to discover more about ourselves. Connecting and knowing more and more of who we are as individuals and how we function really help us grow and gain understanding…And make even better choices!

Your curiosity and interest in what you refer to as “understanding the mind” is quite expected. Most of us tend to be more drawn to what innately is our strength and skills. And yes, this very interest you have can help you deeply connect to that part of you more strongly and help you cultivate those experiences more.

The occurrences you wrote about are very good experiences. Those will come in handy to help you understand just exactly “how you tap into your abilities.”

One thing I do notice from “thought” empaths is that they tend to be very mind creative. What I mean is as a thought empath, one who is able to tap into others thoughts, you know that you are indeed reading the other person’s thought and not creating the perceived thought yourself.

It’s still best to get third party perspective – feedback from someone else – to know for sure you are indeed “reading their thoughts”…Until you’ve more fully developed the skill.

Best way is to practice with animals, babies or another person (who you trust and feel comfortable with to give you feedback). Just to test your readings. Most likely, another thought empath…with similar abilities can be a tremendous help for you on this. You want to see if you can still do the same thing. Reading their thoughts and what they are sending out… and how consistent is your ability to do this.

Use this technique to practice, practice, and practice to hone that skill. This will also help you differentiate their thoughts versus your created thoughts.

As for “these phenomenon seem loosely similar because of the lack of emotion/energy driving them. (I know everything is energy, in it’s most basic form, but the emotion provides the “voltage” behind the thoughts, and there was none.)” My explanation to you Michael is that when someone cleans their emotion (especially the energy charges behind certain experiences in their life) when they create thoughts, sometimes it’s just pure thought and there’s no heavy emotional charge (emotion/energy driving) behind the thought. Never the less the thought still comes through clearly if not more sharper!

Thanks again for your questions…And participating in the EmpathSolutions.com Forum!

Empaths and Highly Sensitive People (HSP) often find themself in stressful situations due to their highly sensitive system. Not catching early on their sensitivity often wrecks havoc for them making it challenging for them to cope with stress.

If not realized and handled earlier with a stress coping skills. They may find themselves in involved in addictive harmful habits. Watching to much tv, drinking excessively, gambling uncontrollably, involve in drug abuse, and binge eating. Many obsessive behaviors and types of addiction may developed for highly sensitive people in an attempt to relief stress and pressure from the ever demanding world.

Which is why it is so crucial for empaths and HSP to find stress management techniques that work for them when it comes to dealing with stress.

Below are some healthy alternatives for empaths & HSP to COPE with their sensitivities:

As an empath it can be confusing living with others.

What’s mine? What’s yours?

Differentiating others “stuff” from your stuff.

Whether it be in a house with our family, in an apartment surrounded by our neighbors, or at work with our co-workers. Trying to differentiate where energy or sensations is coming from can be tough. All our energies are smushed together like a bowl of soup.

Especially when it comes to others feeling bad, negative energies, unwanted emotions, sadness, anxiety, physical pain or ailment of some sort, and even confusing rambling thoughts in someone else’s head.

Yes, as an empath we tend to pick up these things more easily than others.  Heck, some of us who are empaths…and don’t know are empaths, tend to take it all in as it is OURS. And ours alone. That could be overwhelming.

So just how do we tell what is ours and what is others?

Even with handy techniques in our hands, there’s still times when we get so immersed in the energy that it’s fuzzy to pick out where everything is coming from.

There’s hope… this one technique has saved me on countless times!

When the direction or source of that “UNWANTED” energy can’t be detected anymore, it’s wise to step out for a second. Simply get up and take a nice walk to sever the energy ties between you.

That’s it. You just have to remember to do it. Comment below and let me know how it worked for you.
