By definition, an empath is a big-hearted and generous individual, the one that will show up in a time of need.

Most commonly, it refers to an overly sensitive individual. Such a person will be able to sense what other people are thinking and feeling. The idea may sound supernatural, but it isn’t. A large chunk of the population is blessed with it. Others can develop it too through conscious effort. Those in possession of empathy are keen listeners; they are the perfect shoulder to cry on. Able to feel truly and deeply, they sense the emotions and energies of others. Sometimes, they even have strongly pronounced psychic powers.

Are you really an empath? True empaths find difficult not to care.

Are you an excellent listener and the perfect shoulder to cry on? if you learn to navigate the gift properly, you can discover a rewarding career as counselor or life-coach.

Such a person’s ability to feel and understand the needs of others makes them extremely valuable but also extremely vulnerable. Unfortunately, despite its substantial progress, psychology does not yet offer an accurate test. Additional confusion arises from the general mix up between empathy and sympathy, with the latter being much more superficial.  They will help others – even to their own detriment. This characteristic creates harmony in the outer world but may wreak havoc in their inner being.

The connection between empathy and social anxiety

Needless to say, there are numerous obstacles to such a life path. An empath is naturally hard on their own flaws and can absorb negative vibrations easily. This often means taking on long-harbored resentment and even pain, brought by others. Some characteristics unite nearly all sensitive souls:

  • depression is common and can grow in intensity over time
  • a need for acceptance and validation tends to be quite strong
  • alcohol abuse can emerge if disorders are not addressed and treater correctly (an accurate test is essential)
  • the individual may require professional help in the realm of psychology and psychiatry

All of the above can also be addressed by an experienced intuitive healer but coordination with the advice of a medical professional is essential.

  • clairaudience, a nearly miraculous way to “hear” stimuli from beyond our realm
  • clairsentience, a unique manner of sensing vibrations in the astral plane
