What is it called when a person can take negative energy from another person?

My boyfriend has the ability to take away someone’s sadness or pain, if only for a short period of time, and I was wondering if there was a name for that.

thats impossible. there’s no such thing.


It sounds like “empathy” is the word you’re looking for.
“2: the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner”
[edit]: Actually, now that I think of it, you might be thinking of Reiki or “energy healing”… does he take the negative energy onto himself or just kind of “push it away”? If he doesn’t take it on himself, that sounds more like Reiki. There’s an article on Wiki at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reiki (although both skeptics and practitioners wrote parts of the article so there’s a dual-bias in it). I hope I was able to help!


it’s called having a hyperactive imagination


Neutralizing or releasing negative energy is called “grounding” it. His element may be the element of Earth.


I call people with that talent “friends”.


Dude, he’s totally an energy vampire!
Actually… it’s BS.


How wonderful, im not sure what its called but, i agree with another ‘ grounding’ is a good start. Ifs also to do with his wonderful energy and his healing abilities.
Dont listen to others, they obviously have not had too much experience in this area.
