Default Re: Intrusive thoughts/images- an empath's curse?

It can be torturous sensing a mood or situation without wanting to know.
A psychologist - who is an empath - told me to acknowledge the the feeling - thank it and let them know you heard them and tell them that now they (feelings) can pass on by. Hope that helps.

I've managed to get rid of those thoughts and images for the time being. I guess it was a combination of stress anxiety, holidays, unhealthy food and lack of activity that led to the weakening of my shield.
