What does that even mean?
Empaths are people who are highly sensitive to the energies and emotions of the people, animals and spiritual imprints that exist around them. Sometimes they are even sensitive to the energies of plants and the world and universe itself. This senisitivity applies to those that are familiar to the empath and to those that are not. Empaths experience the world around them and feel what others are feeling through extremely heightened senses and powerful intuition. This can often happen without any knowledge and may then lead the empath to internalising other peoples feelings as their own. This can happen especially during teenage and young adult years. The untrained Empath is unconsiously influenced by the thoughts, moods and desires of others around them. Much more than just being highly sensitive, the Empath is not limited to emotions, they can percieve physical sensitivieis, illness and pain as well as motivations and intentions of others..
Unlike the virtue of empathy, being an Empath cannot be learned. You are born this way. You either are an Empath or you aren't. It is considered a gift in the same way that clairvoyance, mediumship and healing are. Indeed an Empath will often also posses one or more of these other gifts.
Left untrained, Empaths can often experience chronic fatigue or environmental sensitivities, unexplained aches and pains on a daily basis.
Through this blog, I hope to share some of my journey, valuable information and healing strategies for the Empath.
