  • I don't understand did what did the doctor say about your daughter? What problems are you having with your daughter?

  • The psychic probably said empath. When someone is an empath psychic they pick up on the feelings of others. This can cause a multitude of issues for the empath (especially when you don't know what is going on) . It can cause physical symptoms such as headaches, pain, it can cause mood swings, etc. Here's a good site for some extra info. http://www.freewebs.com/theempath/

  • It comes from the word empathy, the ability to feel what others are feeling. I am an empath and you have to be careful sometimes. She has the ability to know what others are feeling and therefore she knows what to do the help ease peoples hearts but sometimes we forget about our own. We pick up on so much on people around us that we tune out our own needs. I am still a work in progress.

  • She has to develope a sheild of some sort otherwise she will have to stay away from people going through a lot of difficulty. I especially pick up on the well being of those I am close to. I can't say enough about meditation. Always seek the root of her balance whether it is through chakra meditation or just plain meditation. If she is a Christian, then she can balance herself through prayer. Empaths are not specific to one or even any religion.

  • I am also an empath. I am learning how to control and strengthen my abilities myself. Like pnwmom said - you have to be very careful sometimes. I hate walking into a crowded room or a nightclub because you get about 10,000 emotions slapping you in the face at once. You don't know weather to laugh, cry, or punch someone in the nose. I have learned a technique where you simply visualize a wall around yourself with a golden doorway. The only emotions that are allowed through that golden doorway are the ones you welcome into it. It will take some time, but she can learn to hone into her ability and control it.

    Also, like pnwmom said, it is not specific to any religion. pnwmom, for example, is pagan, whereas I am Christian. I welcome my gift as a gift from God, and I use a lot of prayer and meditation.
