I’m a empath And it’s really starting to hurt me I don’t even feel like myself I take on pretty much everybody else’s shit to the point I just did a group reading and she couldn’t even read me because she said anytime I said my name she just kept hearing so many different names that I just have so much attached. How do you protect ourselves from spirits and just people?
What helped me was reiki, unlike you I would feel peoples sickness, the more intense the sickness the more intense the heat my body would give off. A friend recommended reiki to me and it very much helped.
It stopped me from giving my personal energy away, It sounds like yours is something along those lines depending on how your affected, but look into in.
