An Empath is someone with the strong ability to feel the thoughts, emotions and energy of others. It’s the ability to sense, connect and understand on a soulful level with the Spirit of another individual on Earth.
It’s the ability of clairsentience, clear feeling, manifesting in the physical world with physical people and animals. And many of my clients, before they begin working with Spirit in the Spiritual World, have already begun working with Spirit in the physical world. Most of the time, without their knowledge.
If you think you might be an empath, you are. If you think you are an over-feeler, you are. If you’ve been called to sensitive. . .you most certainly are. But, that doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing.
Empaths can feel, sense or know what is already going on with someone, even without their own personal knowledge. They can pick up on vibes, energy, illnesses or emotions coming from others, even if those others, don’t even know what they are feeling themselves. An empath is someone who, spiritually and energetically, has fair skin, but many days, walks around in full sun with no protection, due to the lack of knowledge about the condition of their skin.
There are signs you may be extra sensitive and using your abilities actively within the physical world. If you can answer yes to many of the questions below, you may be holding with in you the most acknowledged psychic ability.
13 Signs You Are an Empath
Do you find yourself carrying the burden of others?
Are social situations increasingly draining and uncomfortable for you?
Do you dislike or like a person for reasons you can’t explain?
Do you feel anxious in crowds or have mood swings regularly?
Do you go through waves of depression and then shortly thereafter, experience heights of joy?
Are you easily excited about ideas, dreams and the hopes of others?
Are you continually being smeared with the problems, complaints and issues of others?
Do you suddenly feel ill, sick or nauseous, for no reason at all?
Do you sometimes feel you can hear the thoughts of others or know what they are thinking even when they don’t say it?
Can you tell when someone is faking it?
Have you been called or accused of being too sensitive?
Do highly value your own emotions and ask that others value them as well?
Are you able to walk into a room and sense when something is off or an argument was just underway?
These are all signs you may be sensing the energy, emotions and thoughts of those around you. And if you are currently in the process or interest of wanting to or beginning to connect with Spirit in this way, it’s essential to know that you have the ability to do both. If you can sense Spirit strongly - it’s regardless of body. Being an Empath, you have the ability to sense and feel both those in Spirit in a human body and those without a physical body at this time.
Thankfully, being an Empath is actually pretty cool - once it’s been identified, managed and under control. Unidentified, Empath abilities can manifest as feelings of apathy, anxiety, overwhelm or numbness - all signs that you’ve had too much of your fill. You may even have a hard time sensing what are your feelings and thoughts, compared to the feelings and thoughts of others. You may have a hard time in social interactions, public spaces and feeling comfortable in crowds, due to the sheer number of emotions in one place that you can sense.
Once managed, Empath abilities can provide these wonderful benefits:
The ability to connect soulfully and deeply with any person on Earth
The ability to read others and the environment to better tailor your responses and interactions to match the scenario
The gift of offering love and compassion to others, while maintaining your own boundaries
The ability to maintain your own personal space, no matter who or what is around
A greater stability in your own emotional, physical and mental state
A decrease in mood swings and illness
The ability to begin connecting and sensing those in Spirit, without bodies
Your Empathic abilities, if you wish, can be applied, enhanced and developed in your interactions in both realms, to provide a better outcome, sense of security and sense of self.
I hope this helps!
