What is an Empath?
Empaths are beings who are sensitive to energy, they can feel and experience other people’s emotions and thoughts as their own. They are born with souls deeply connected to everything, are highly intuitive, psychic, sensitive and capable of profound healing. Empaths have a magnetic energy, people either love them or hate them as they can often times trigger people’s unhealed issues to surface by just simply being in their presence. They are emotional sponges and absorb all kinds of energy, they have the ability to act as a filter and transmute energy which makes them natural healers. Empaths are deeply connected to the Earth, plants, animals, and the collective energy. There are many different types of Empaths and each have their own unique gifts and abilities.
They have a healing presence so they draw to them all those that need healing. The first thing to know about Empaths is that they feel everything!! You cannot fake your energy around them which makes it difficult for them to be around people and different for people to be around them. They need a lot of time alone to recharge and get grounded. They are easily overwhelmed by large crowds and easily pick up other people’s energy. It is so hard to explain what this actually feels like unless you experience this and are aware of it. We live in a society that is so superficial and so conditioned, people have lost all empathy and have lost touch with their emotions, so being an Empath in a world full of unhealed humans projecting their hate and trauma on others is a nightmare! This is why it is so crucial to do self healing so you can raise your vibration and transmute all that negative energy into positive energy and spread that vibration to others, which in turn helps heal others. So in healing yourself, you are always helping heal the whole collective and what is more important than that.
Being an Empath is truly a blessing once you learn how to work with energy and how to discern your own energy from others. This is the hardest part of it all but with mindfulness, lots of soul searching, meditation, connecting to your Higher Self and your Guides, you will get to know your own frequency and energy from others. Everything in the Universe is energy and frequency and when you start to emit your own frequency rather than absorbing the frequencies around you, thats’s when you start changing your reality. That is the gift of being an Empath, you have the natural gift of transmuting energy, healing and manifesting and there’s nothing more powerful than that. An empowered Empath is a force to be reckoned with!
