Empathy is the ability to feel or sense another’s emotions or energies either up close or from a distance. Empaths are also quite intuitive and perceptive.
A lot of people have this ability and are not fully aware of it. Usually, they can’t explain why they are feeling a certain way and are in fact absorbing the energy of others around them and taking on their feelings as their own.
An example would be being in the presence of someone who is negative. The empath was feeling calm and positive before their interaction, and now they are feeling drained and negative. At times it is often hard to distinguish whether your feelings are your own or whether you are feeling others.
This ability can be overwhelming at times if you aren’t able to fully detach yourself from feeling everything so deeply and being highly sensitive.
I personally find it difficult to watch sad movies or news. When people cry, I feel their pain and emotions instantly and end up crying myself. I am a psychic medium and one of my abilities is also the gift of being an empath. I can feel people’s emotions and also any physical pain they feel.
The most important thing for an empath is to try to stay calm and grounded. You need to find a way to balance your energy so you are not constantly drained by taking on others emotions and energies.
Empaths are also drawn to helping people. They have a way of really connecting to and understanding people. It is almost like stepping into another’s shoes and experiencing what they go through.
Again, balance is important here because you need to also look after your own wellbeing as well as helping others.
I tend to get overwhelmed at times with a large group of people as I absorb all of their energy instantly so I try to do fun activities and relax and recharge my energy.
I feel blessed to be able to help others through my gifts as well as being an empath.
If you are an empath, learn to embrace your gift as well. You have the gift to feel and sense things very deeply.
