Are you an Empath?

You might be thinking that "Empath" is a strange word. Not one you would hear in normal day to day conversation. However the word “Empath” originates from the word “empathy” – to feel true feelings and an empath is someone who is naturally in tune with the emotional highs and lows of another human being. An Empath does not need to step in someone else’s shoes as they are already in them. They live to feel, to guide and to help and they are sometimes even recognised as “Earth Angels” . You will naturally feel drawn to an Empath as they have very strong healing abilities and many work as psychics or clairsentients which means “clear sensing”.

It can be an interesting experience when communicating with an Empath as it can almost feel as if they are communicating to you through someone else as if someone is literally reaching inside your mind, scanning it and then explaining to you how you feel. –Empaths are very good at passing on messages from spirit and they often do this without even realising. They are gifted communicators and have depths of wisdom, knowledge and inspiration to turn any difficult situation around into a meaningful philosophy.

Usually, they are aware of their gift at a very young age and may decide to go into careers such as healing, counselling or psychic studies as they feel a strong compassion towards others which they normally tend to know is a gift. They are extremely good at reading peoples’ body language. They may walk into a room and instantly know what has been going on previously before entering.

They may be able to read other peoples’ emotions without their consent (almost like having undesired access into someone else’s’ diary).

Therefore they may feel awkward and strange around people very quickly as they are able to pick up negative emotions and feelings. You may have even experienced this yourself. For example you may have been invited to a party had a great time but left with a feeling of discontent or even felt slightly depressed but you were unsure why.

This can be an indication that you have picked up the energy feelings from someone else in the room and absorbed them without knowing, mistaking them for your own emotions and feelings. Empathy is known to have both biological/genetic and spiritual aspects and it is believed that everything has an energetic vibration of frequency. An Empath basically detects these and is able to recognise even the most subtlest of changes which is undetectable to the naked eye or the five senses. It is important to be aware that empathy can start at a very young age and if you have children or work with children you may have heard of the term “indigo” or “crystal”.

Indigo and Crystal Children

The concept of Indigo and Crystal children was developed by lady called Nancy Ann Tapp in the 1970s and the label was given to children who possess special, unusual or supernatural traits or abilities.

The beliefs tend to range from their being the next stage in human evolution or possessing paranormal abilities such being telepathic or being more empathic and creative than their peers. The belief is that they are tuned into a higher frequency and come back specifically to exercise certain traits and to also help and heal others.

Dorren Virtue is spiritual doctor of psychology and a fourth-generation metaphysician who works with the angelic, elemental and ascended-master realms. She describes how to recognise and Indigo and Crystal child in the following statement:

The first thing most people notice about Crystal Children is their eyes, large, penetrating, and wise beyond their years. Their eyes lock on and hypnotize you, while you realize your soul is being laid bare for the child to see. Perhaps you’ve noticed this special new “breed” of children rapidly populating our planet. They are happy, delightful and forgiving. This generation of new lightworkers, roughly ages – 0 through 7, are like no previous generation. Ideal in many ways, they are the pointers for where humanity is headed…and it’s a good direction!

The older children (approximately age 7 through 25), called “indigo children”, share some characteristics with the Crystal Children. Both generations are highly sensitive and psychic, and have important life purposes. The main difference is their temperament. Indigos have a warrior spirit, because their collective purpose is to mash down old systems that no longer serve us. They are here to quash government, educational, and legal systems that lack integrity. To accomplish this end, they need tempers and fiery determination.

So both types of children have similar qualities and a specific purpose which you may even recognise yourself , as you, yourself could even be an Indigo or Crystal child. All of us have the ability to heal one another, it’s just a question of leaving doors and windows open and not allowing yourself to shut off from the world around you. Remember that people do come into your life for a reason, and sometimes very unexpectedly. If you come across an unexpected experience with someone, treasure it and ask your guides to help you understand why that person has entered your life. Emotional and spiritual experiences allow us to unlock doors that have been bothering us, if you allow yourself to be a little vulnerable to life’s lessons, you’ll naturally open up divine gateways for the people that need to be in your life. .

How to protect yourself from unwanted feelings

If you know that you are going to be picking up other peoples’ energy try and protect yourself by practising the following:

Imagine yourself in a beautiful bubble of golden light; you are protected by that bubble of light always, particularly when you do not want to take on the unwanted feelings of those around you. If you feel negative vibes coming your way then use the bubble that you visualise to protect yourself by seeing negative thoughts and energies bouncing off the bubble back to the negative energy. You can then watch the negative energy transform into a wonderful puff of pink light – this way you are not sending any negative energy back, but instead exchanging it for positive thoughts and light!
