What does Empathic mean?
Empaths are highly sensitive to the energy around them in others they are close to and even in public places. For instance, an empath can be in a great mood, enter a room where everyone is angry or sad and suddenly they feel the same way. The untrained empath will be quickly, deeply affected by other people’s feelings and thoughts easily. They can tell if someone is lying, angry, sad. The can also take on illnesses or pain of those around them they are close to.
Trained empaths can not only feel other people’s feelings, they know why they are feeling a certain way. They know who and what is causing the feelings they are suddenly afflicted with. They know when someone is lying and why. Trained empaths can shield themselves from outside energies more effectively, thus restoring their own peace.
Why are Empaths important?
While meditating on this, I received a lot of information on why we need more empaths. With society becoming more numb, distracted and disconnected we are losing our ability to connect to others and the planet. It is very important that some are highly tuned into emotions and energies on the planet. In order for us to evolve to a higher state of consciousness and love we must have the ability to feel things on a personal level. With more empaths emerging, we have the opportunity to truly feel higher vibrations and lower vibrations. This ability makes it easier for us to choose the higher ones. It guides us quickly into choosing love.
I’m an Empath, How do I manage?
Being Empathic is manageable. You must stay very conscious of your own energy and how your energy shifts. Here are some questions to ask yourself daily:
- How do I feel?
- Are these my own feelings and thoughts?
- Did my energy change because of someone else?
- Do I have a reason to feel this way?
- Do I know who I am being affected by?
- Can I affect a change in this energy or should I leave?
