Empaths are people who have unique personality types. Their sensory levels are on a constant high alert, which means that they are very sensitive to the vibrations of energy levels around them and are also incredibly intuitive with a high sense of self-awareness. Empaths are typically known as the healers of the world. They’re the people whose senses are heightened–the ones that not only see the different energies of the world, but actually feel them, experience them. Those who are not Empaths might think that this ability to feel what others feel is a gift, but if you can convince an Empath to talk about their gift, they might tell you that it’s not always sunshine and rainbows. In fact, it’s quite often not a very fun gift to possess at all. Because of their gift, so many people rely on them for support. Empaths are almost always trusted because they make people feel safe. And while the Empath is capable of handling the emotions of others, they also experience quite a bit of stress because of it.
STUDY: a recent study suggests that Empaths are actually highly psychic! This means that you should enhance your empathic skills, instead of hiding them away:
- You can read people’s minds
Did you know that Empaths have a form of psychic ability that is considered a rare gift? Actually, we all do it to some degree – taking cues from people’s body language and verbal discourse. For instance: a skilled non-verbal decoder can tell if someone is lying, someone is happy or sad (even if they claim to be the opposite), or if they are manipulating others with their speech and gestures. But, Empaths are much more advanced. You got that right, Empaths can receive psychic images, statements, hues, or smells intuitively which indicate to them, a reality beyond which most are aware.
Empaths, this is very important for you to understand: if you pick up on these energies, focus on them and create an even stronger psychic experience, then you can literally walk a mile in someone else’s shoes and know exactly what that would feel like.
- You can be your own emotion SUPERHERO
Empaths, you can “turn” your ability (empathize with others) and use it to your own benefit. It’s very simple – you just have to focus on your own emotional growth and this gift can become your greatest super power. The act of listening to your own feelings and thoughts is self-empathy- it’s compassion in action. It could completely change how you communicate with people.
- You can use your sensitivity and “convert it” into a highly useful skill
I would like to ask you a few simple questions:
- Are certain smells absolutely revolting to you?
- Do non-organic foods cause you terrible gastro-intestinal distress?
- Do you need quiet in order to sleep, and alone time in order to off-load all the smells, sights, sounds, and emotions you’ve absorbed all day long?
If you answer YES to the questions above, then you might be an Empath! And, can you do me a small favor? STOP looking at your gift as if it were a burden and use it to your advantage. You could become a perfumer and advise companies on removing chemicals and adding natural scents to their products. Or, for instance, you could help others eat divinely prepared food by becoming an organic chef. You could develop quiet spaces like gardens, libraries, or meditation rooms that not only you need, but that others would revel in, without even realizing that they were desperate for your gift. Just do yourself a favor and use your “power” to create a peaceful heaven in the world.
