A place to help gain self-awareness through learning, healing, growing, sharing & supporting.
You may have "stumbled" upon this site because you identified with one/some of the following terms:
Empath, Intuitive, Psychic, HSP's (Highly Sensative Person), or INFP.
We all share common "traits", yet are all different in what we feel we possess. As you grow spiritually and as a person, so may your abilities. This should be a good thing, and can be with the right focus and understanding. Here we hope to accomplish that, while also providing outside resources for you to find what really works for you.
We are here to see how to better live with our abilities. We regularly discuss our gifts & personal journeys, in order to help others and ourselves. We learn from each other. We teach each other.
This group is designed to bring together those of us who "feel" more than the "normal" person, have never seemed to fit in, but have always been "special" in a very different way. We are each "gifted", but have at many times felt cursed, not knowing how to deal with what we are experiencing, and have not had any coping mechanisms for how to deal with what we go through that makes us this way. Because of this, many of us may be introverts, withdrawing from society and misinterpreted incorrectly by society as to who we are. Much of the time we don't even realize what we are experiencing or who we are until much later in life. Some of us are even outgoing, which contradicts the norm, which makes it even more complicated, but both of us require "down-time" to replenish our energy.
Herein, "Empaths, Intuitives, Psychics & HSP's" comes into play. We have come together to create an environment where we "belong" BECAUSE of our gifts. We are here to connect with others like ourselves, who experience the same or similar things. In sharing those experiences, we work to try to heal & grow and turn what may have felt like "curses" at some time into gifts. One goal is to learn to deal with them, sometimes not only to help ourselves, but coming to help others in the process. We have found that many of our members possess multiple gifts. It is only in recognizing and healing our own issues, that we can actually eventually grow in every other aspect of our life. What is it in another person that triggers those emotions within ourselves? (i.e. Anger, discomfort, abandonment, self-destruction, addictions, anxiety, pain, and so much more!) It is when you can recognize these things and "own" them that you have taken the first step in dealing with and healing from your past. Unresolved issues only cause us to regress, suffer from emotional and physical ailments, and react and treat others, but mostly ourselves, poorly. Your goal with this group should be to work on your own issues. Looking to another person for the answer? You have the answer, but are you able to find it? We hope to provide you with the opportunity and tools to do just that.
This is not your "normal" site. Many places focus on offering tons of paid teaching events. While we do offer these things from time to time, our primary purpose is of a different nature. We come together to learn about ourselves and by doing so, we grow individually and together. If this is something that resonates with you, then maybe you are meant to join us!
This is not about our egos, but rather quite the opposite. Karma: We get back what we give.
On a personal note: I have found that I possess many gifts, but still yet do not know their full extent. I used to fear absorbing the negative energy around me, because I had no coping mechanisms. By growing with others like me, the burden has been lifted and I (and others) can flourish, instead of hide. The hope is to overcome our own issues, and in turn receive the great gift of emotional, spiritual and personal growth through love and self-awareness.
*Important note: I was so affected by "negative energy" that I could no longer function. I kept wondering why I was so sensitive to the negative energy & why it was so abundant everywhere I went. I have recently learned that it was me! When we put out negativity or focus on it, then that is what we draw. When we can overcome our own "stuff" then we can focus on the positive and in turn, that is what we will draw to us. Negative energy can't survive around true & positive energy. It was a very hard & long road for me to get to this understanding, but once I did, and learned to change my vibration daily to function at a higher level at all times, I have not had a problem with negative energy. I (capital I) am the one that determines this! :)
It is hard to differentiate many times, what we are, and the extent of our abilities. As we grow, and our abilities evolve, what we are may also change. For many, we have had these gifts all of our lives, sometimes not knowing until much later in life. For others, these abilities just "turned" on one day, many times after a traumatic/life changing event or a near death experience.
Here are a couple/few websites that might help you out, especially if you are trying to research, learn more about HSP's, Empaths, Psychics, etc:
Elaine Aron - The Highly Sensitive Person (Lists good info, common traits, self test on her site)
Michael R. Smith - Empath Connection Blog (has multiple sites, blogs, info on emapaths... great self-test on his site, also Psychic Info too)
Welcome to those who join us in a path of self-discovery and personal growth!
