Empaths are the true definition of Empathy.

An Empath is a person that is hypersensitive to the emotions and energy of other people, as well as animals. They have the ability to physically feel the emotions of a person/animal standing within their Auric field.

Empaths have this sense of “knowing” and very strong intuition.

Empaths are the people who feel their way through life. They are born highly sensitive with the ability of empathy to help them understand their surroundings on a deeper level than the physical. This ability grants them the opportunity to help people heal. This is done through means of stepping into the shoes of a person to gain a better understanding of the situation. Most Empaths are born with a ‘knowing’ that aids as a proper form of guidance. They intuitively seem to ‘know’ there is more to a story than what meets the eye. This is why it is impossible to lie to an Empath. They are also very in-tune with their intuition, as it is very strong. This is why Empaths are sought to be more spiritually evolved than most, because they are born with a connection to their higher consciousness. They live a life through their soul without the need of development.

Empaths have this energy that influences self-reflection onto other people.

They feel every emotion and energy that vibrates in their presence. When someone is angry, an Empath will feel the anger throughout their body. The anger feels them like a speed train carrying chaos on a track that is unstable. This is why an Empath might sometimes hold in their emotions until they just bust. If a child screams at the parent that is screaming, this is why. Empaths don’t understand the feeling of anger, nor do they understand the feeling of fear. They are usually always happy. Their energy influences optimism onto others, along with feelings of deep thought and self-reflection.They are often very bright, independent, imaginative, creative and adventurous as children.

Empaths are the people one can’t help but love.

Empaths are generally very understanding of other people and their positions. They will never pass judgement on someone without their own opinion from an encounter through experience. They often times will ask questions to gain their own perspective on someone or something. When someone justifies something about someone, it means nothing to an Empath, because how someone views another person is only one side of the story. This is why most Empaths are looked at as being Fake, or two-faced, as they have a liking for everyone. Empaths are people-pleasures. They can’t help it.

 Empaths are extra sensitive to violence and sadness.

Empaths are sensitive to television, books, videos, movies, news and broadcasts. Violence, chaotic news, obscene behavior, emotional dramas and depressing stories depicting shocking scenes of physical, or emotional pain, inflicted people and animals can easily bring an Empath to tears. They do not tolerate injustice and speak on behalf of their perception of what is and what should be.

Empaths absorb emotions from others unconsciously.

At times, they can even feel the emotions of a person that is located miles away. This happens when an Empath, when in contact with a person, unconsciously makes a connection with that person. When an Empath is undeveloped they don’t have the knowledge to understand the importance of distinguishing which emotions are theirs and which are absorbed from other people. Often times this will leave the Empath to experience different and random levels of emotions and energy. They might experience feelings of being drained, moody, depressed, angry for no reason, unsure about life and self-conscious. It’s hard to understand the identity of an Empath when they aren’t even able to familiarize themselves with their own emotions. This is why it is important for an Empath to development their ability in order to master their gift.

Empaths are born with a natural skill of observation.

Accompanied with the ability to feel is the ability of observation. It comes naturally to them to study the body language and tone of voice of people. This is often how they identify people. Their liking for one depends on one’s choice of words, body movement and/or facial expressions.

Empaths are born innovators.

 

Most Empaths are the born writers, singers, musicians and artists of the world and quite often exhibit a high degree of creativity and imagination. They are known for many talents as their interests are diverse and varied. They often have interests in many cultures and religions and view them with a broad-minded perspective.

Empaths are the sponges of the world.

They are the psychic sponges of the world. They soak up all the psychic and emotional static that other people give off. Being an Empath is one of the most common psychic abilities, but it is also the most challenging.

Most Empaths go through a suicidal stage.

Not understanding their ability causes them to become quiet and withdrawn from the outside world. They often times become loners, depressed, neurotic, day-dreamers, or even narcissistic. When an Empath is undeveloped the emotions will overtake their lives. This causes them to become depressed where they lose touch with their feelings by not allowing themselves to feel anything. An Empath going through depression is something that has an influence on the people around him/her. It can be felt by anyone in the Empaths presence. Many suffer from self-medicated addictions such as drugs, alcohol and often food.

Empaths put the needs of others before those of their own.

Empaths are often times very selfless. They put the needs of others before those of their own. This comes naturally to them, as they have a need to cater and nurture those among them. Being able to openly feel what is outside of them causes them to ignore what is inside of them. They are great listeners, which makes them some of the greatest people to talk with. Most Empaths are known as the mother hen of the family, along with being the psychologist amongst peers. Although, some Empaths might be quite the opposite. They might even become narcissistic.
