I don't know if this will help you but I learned a little meditation or visualization where I had two big dials. Like the knobs on a stove. One for others and one for myself. I would turn others down lower, and turn mine up a bit. I don't know, but it seemed to help me with being so empathic and picking up other people's stuff. I still pick up on things but I do not absorb them into my system anymore. It might not seem like much but I found it to be very helpful and I hope you do as well.
