To decide i won't be friends with people based on their energy

DP would say I am, but in the last yr or so i've become really aware of the energy that people give out.

Some people repel me like the same poles of a magnet. For example NDN from the day i met him I just felt a really bad buzz about him, and i'll be honest i havn't given him any time because i feel due to this we won't be friends (and other reasons)

There's a mum at school who we chat and she's nice all fine, but i know we could never be close friends because she has a different energy.

And then there's some people, in particular one of the dad's at school (before anyone starts this is not an attraction thing!) who has such a calming, positive energy i feel totally comfortable and can quite happily stand near him in comfortable happy silence.

do other people have this?

DonkeyOaty Tue 15-Dec-15 13:45:19

Nope

MaidOfStars Tue 15-Dec-15 13:45:35

Energy is the capacity of a system to emit light or heat, or to perform work.

So no.

wink

Playing ball, I don't usually make long term judgments about people based on presumably subliminal minute cues of body language or regular language in chance meetings.

Praps you're an empaf or something? <vague>

MojitoMollie Tue 15-Dec-15 13:46:27

nope

i treat people on the way they treat me

You don't give your neighbour the time of day because you thinks he has bad energy?

Yabu.

If you get to know people and simply don't like them enough to be close friends that's fine.

Writing people off because of your assumptions isn't ok.

MySordidCakeSecret Tue 15-Dec-15 13:48:54

what's an empaf? i've considered that i might be a spiritual person.. i am a wannabe hippy?

Seriously though i thought this was something a lot of people recognised.. positive and negative energy when you meet people, and when it's negative you just don't open up, i'm not rude or mean or anything i just find if someone has a positive energy i feel happy to be around them.

whois Tue 15-Dec-15 13:49:25

Um, kinda - but I'd probably just interpret it as their general personality, body language, voice, actions, words etc rather than 'energy'.

MySordidCakeSecret Tue 15-Dec-15 13:49:56

He's a twat, it's an impression i gathered when i met him which over the past few months he has validated many times over! which tells me my instincts were right.

I don't know what you mean by energy?

Kennington Tue 15-Dec-15 13:51:00

Really this is not pleasant
So someone who is having a bad day or is unwell doesn't get your time.
Sounds like your 'energy' is off rather than others.

MySordidCakeSecret Tue 15-Dec-15 13:51:49

ah just looked it up, an Aura!! that's exactly what i mean

AliceScarlett Tue 15-Dec-15 13:52:40

Im assuming empaf is empath (an empathic person I think).

LittlestLightOnTheTree Tue 15-Dec-15 13:52:47

How ridiculous! If it were true then all the 'bad energy' lot would never get anywhere, they would be forever avoided

MaidOfStars Tue 15-Dec-15 13:52:54

i just find if someone has a positive energy i feel happy to be around them

How do people with "positive energy" act, such that you feel happy to be around them?

Calm, confident, smiley but not giddy, interested and interesting, and so on.

This is not "energy" - yes, that is rather hippy wannabe - it's just a personality type that you, and everyone, responds to.

No you've misunderstood, i'm an introvert, so social interaction takes a lot out of me, and i only have a small number of close friends.

When i say i don't give time i mean i won't over invest personal information and a big effort to socialise etc, i am always kind and friendly to people and always help people and offer to help if they need it i'm not a mean person.

AliceScarlett Tue 15-Dec-15 13:53:38

Um Auras have no basis in reasonable logic.

MaidOfStars Tue 15-Dec-15 13:54:40

Aura, energy, blah. They are all vague, hippy-dippy mile markers on the path to crystal healing and tea leaf reading smile

Enjolrass Tue 15-Dec-15 13:54:48

Actually my mil does this.

Energy has been the reason she warned dh from marrying me. We would have a short lived marriage and I would ruin his life post divorce.

We have been married for 13 years. She also told me I was giving out male energy when I was pregnant with dd. She was 100% sure she would be a boy and the sonographer was wrong. She then told me that I wouldn't have anymore kids as the maternal energy no longer surrounded me.

She told us not to start our business as it would ruin us with 2 years. The business plan had bad energy.

3 years later business is stronger than ever and we are more financially secure than ever.

Four weeks ago she gave me some drops that would 'sort my energy so I wasn't as negative and stop over reacting' .

Mil has fil, but very few friends as she writes people off.

More often that not her 'energy readings' are completely wrong.

Apparently gamma rays were going to cover the earth a few months ago, it would change our DNA.

I don't think I'll ever forgive her. I was promised super powers and it didn't happen! grin

Fair enough then! grin

Maybe consult the crystals and see what they say.

MaidOfStars Tue 15-Dec-15 13:56:40

I'm not denying the validity of your responses to people, OP. I'm just eye rolling at how you are framing them wink

MySordidCakeSecret Tue 15-Dec-15 13:57:27

I didn't think i'd lost my mind but considering i think there's a ghost living upstairs in my house maybe i have! Crazy by the age of 23 wow.

So, are you picking up subtle vibes from people about the kind of character they are? Lots of people do this and if that's the case, I think that's fine. Most of us have met people we disliked or felt uneasy about based on very little interration.

Calling it their 'energy' or 'aura' makes you sound a bit wanky though.
