So, what is an empath? An empath is someone who feels other people's emotions. That sounds very weird, right? You’re thinking, “I have empathy for other people. I get it when someone's in pain.” No, an empath feels those emotions as their own. An empath watches a movie where somebody's child dies, and cries as if their own child died.
*An empath will sit across from you at a meal. When you are telling a story about how someone hurt you, they're angry for you. They feel how hurt you were, and they feel your own anger. *An empath will walk past someone in a grocery store who is sad, and their mood will change in a second, and then they'll be sad too.
And usually, an empath does not know that those are not their emotions that they are feeling. They have literally taken on the vibration of the other person. They have literally felt the emotion in the way that the other person does. And because they're feeling that the way the other person does, they don't process it properly, because their own processing is based on their life experience. Your own reactions and emotions are based on your life experience. You're now feeling their pain the way that they feel it, and you have the tools to process that. And so it creates anxiety, depression, stress, lashing out. For all my empaths, these are some survival tips; some things that you can do to help you survive in this world.
As we awaken it can feel like we are going crazy! We often feel compelled to follow paths that are contrary to societal norms. I've been on this path since my Awakening in 2012 and I def felt crazy many times. Here's what I can share from my own journey that may help you. 1. You're not crazy! The more you embrace the cuckoo stuff that happens the more connected you will be to the Divine/Light/God/Fred -- it doesn't care what you call it as long as you are seeking. 2. As you walk the path, your emotional obstacles/lessons will be placed in front of you clearly, over and over again. Face them, forgive, heal and let go. As you clear these painful things away, your connection will grow stronger. 3. It's not all love light and rainbows. It's hard work. It can be painful. Know that it is worth the effort. 4. You must love yourself Unconditionally, exactly as you are. As we love ourselves, we are embracing the Divine within us and integrating the Divine with the human. That is the magic! 5. Be the change is literal. As we change ourselves and our perceptions, the world around us begins to change. 6. Hang in there! You got this! 🙂❤️
