I don't think any of you are deluded.
But then, I am very much in the same boat as you guys, so maybe we're ALL totally deluded.
But my intuition tells me that we aren't.
And I know the feeling of being completely drained after being around large crowds. I work in Washington, DC and spend the majority of my time there,
and there are always lots of people around. Sometimes it can be too much, but I'm learning to deal with it a little bit better.
I, too, have also heard people's thoughts and responded aloud without realizing that they didn't actually say anything. I can look into someone's
eyes and can literally feel what they feel - often times (meaning not ALL the time, but a lot). I can talk to a complete stranger for 15 minutes and
then tell them all about themselves.
I have learned that my emotions affect others just as their emotions affect me. So I remain consiously aware of my energetic state at all times. Of
course, I am human, so I am not perfect, but if I catch myself being cynical and expressing negativity I make it a point to relax a moment and tune
back in to a "higher frequency" (if you will).
I sometimes seclude myself because it does drain you. But after a short rest period (maybe just go to work then straight home every day for a week or
two) I go right back out there to face it all because I feel like it is my duty. My purpose in life is to do no harm, and to IMPROVE reality by my
presence in it. So while sometimes I want to just crawl in a hole and be left alone - I know I cannot do that. It would be a waste of this precious
gift that I have and I would not be serving creation by shying away from it.
This really has had profound effects on my life, and I have come to meet many other people who are a lot like me in this way, and OF COURSE there are
varying levels of empaths. I've met several who are at several different levels.
I guess what I wanted to say to all you who have posted so far is that, for me, I KNOW this to be real. I KNOW this isn't just my "imagination". I
have seen the effects of this manifest in our physical world and it is a beautiful thing. I know it can be hard, and I feel like we carry a heavy
burden at times, but this is why we're here. We are the ones who are responsible for shaping the future of our world and the future of humanity. We
are the ones responsible for showing others how to better tune in to their own senses and help to improve reality. I know that it seems like a lot of
people don't care. But they could care, and would be happy to do so, if only someone could show them that it's not that hard, and it DOES make a
I feel like we have an amazing gift, being able to sense others emotions in ways that are unexplainable with words... but we also have a
responsibility to do the right thing with it. To help others. It does no good to isolate ourselves, we have to be out there right in the swing of
things. It is our duty.
Much love to all of you, and thanks for posting TallTexxxan!
