The Art of Empathy: How to control and stop Empathic Attacks

The Art of Empathy: How to control and stop Empathic Attacks | Empaths | Scoop.it

Today I’ve decided to write an article about Empathy, which happens to be an ability that’s natural to me. It’s also one of the first abilities I have ever worked with and contrary to popular belief, empathy is an amazing tool when developed thoroughly!

 

Empathy is the art of feeling emotions, however, if developed thoroughly, it can grow and branch out into so much. You can learn about connections, and telepathy, those are usually the next two that happen, then you can move onto kinesis and other PSI and ESP abilities. The possibilities are endless and those who are blessed with this as a natural ability, not a power, are lucky in my opinion.

Yes, it is possible to ignore your empathy, however, you can't simply just ignore it. Haha, huge contradiction there now!



There are some cases in which empathy can overtake the person, so be careful.

Empathic Perspectives: Inner Demons Of Empathy: Gift Or Curse? | Empaths | Scoop.it

Empathy, for an Empath, isn't simply about being sensitive to the emotions and emotional states of others and reaching out a helping hand to those people. It's about being hypersensitive to these things, sometimes to the point that other people's emotions can press in on the Empath so hard they want to shut themselves away from the world just to find some peace. Being an emotional sponge, that absorbs the emotional currents of those around them, positive and negative, can be a painful and debilitating experience.

The Key to Control Empathy

The Key to Control Empathy | Empaths | Scoop.it
Empathy is the ability to feel the emotions or energy of other people. While everyone has the ability to feel other people, some are born a lot more sensitive than others. Generally, most light workers and starseeds are born with the ability of empathy. The ability of empathy can make the awakening process a lot more troublesome than it already is. Empathy can be troublesome because it makes it very easy for a person to fall into the energy or reality of others.

Empathy as a Psychic Ability

Empathy as a Psychic Ability | Empaths | Scoop.it
Some people feel they are overly empathic. They have difficulty discerning the difference between their own feelings and the feelings of others. They pick up on other people’s feelings even when they don’t want to. If you are having this kind of difficulty, it is important to learn how to ground and protect yourself. You might want to read my article called “Grounding” . It takes skill to be really empathic without going too far. Learning how to ground and protect yourself will help.

If you’re an empath and work in an environment with other people, then this article is for you! For some background as to what an empath is, read these articles:

Being surrounded with stressed, anxious, angry, competitive or depressed co-workers can easily send empaths in a tailspin. Especially in cubicle-type environments. Some side effects you may experience include fatigue, periods of anger (and knowing it’s not your own) and depression. And sadly, feeling powerless in all of it.

MuzeChick's Soul & the City: One Empath's experience... | Empaths | Scoop.it
To whom it may inspire: I'd spent most of my life feeling a bit off. I was uncomfortable in crowds, more affected by emotion than others, afraid to sleep, and had an uncanny feeling of always knowing. Its amazing how the universe has a way of providing just what you need at the right time.

Recently I met Vanessa at April Glass during a mini psychic fair where she gave me an intuition reading and instantly I felt a connection.

“I believe I am an empath,” she said. ” Can you help me?” I wasn’t sure I could, but I thought I could give it a try. She was, after all, my best friend. You might want to know what an empath is before I tell you the whole story. There was one on the original Star Trek series:

When the Enterprise stops by to pick up scientific staff Linke and Ozaba from the planet Menarian 2 (which is in orbit around a star which is about to supernova), Kirk, Bones, and Spock discover the station has been abandoned for three months. Here, they discover a timid, mute, woman and McCoy dubs her Gem.

When Empathy Hurts - How to Love While Looking After Yourself | Psychology Today

When Empathy Hurts - How to Love While Looking After Yourself | Psychology Today | Empaths | Scoop.it
Just because I feel someone’s feelings, doesn’t mean I'm responsible for them. By Deborah Ward..

 

When someone you love is feeling bad, you want to do something about it, partly because as a highly sensitive person, you can feel what they’re feeling so intensely. I have found that the closer I am to someone emotionally, the more I absorb their feelings. In the past, this has left me crushed under the weight of emotions I had no control over, as well as exhausted and often somewhat helpless. But I have discovered ways to manage all these feelings in a way that lets me feel in charge of my emotions, rather than at the mercy of them.

Physical Empathy and Emotional Empathy

Physical Empathy and Emotional Empathy | Empaths | Scoop.it

There are two major ways that we feel empathy. Physical empathy is when we feel things that other people are feeling but we feel them in our bodies. That means when you are picking up something from someone you feel it in your body. Often, touch is required for this, but sometimes just physical proximity will do it....

 

Empaths who have strong physical empathy and don't learn how to release that energy often end up sick, with a string of health problems that don't really belong to them.

Empaths R Us – interview with empath Nicole Chayka

Empaths R Us – interview with empath Nicole Chayka | Empaths | Scoop.it
Empath means “becoming one”. Empaths have the ability to become one with something (humans, animals, crystals, environment, etc.) How would you describe the kind of empath you are?

Since childhood I’ve been able to connect with other people and feel what they are feeling, however animals seem to respond to my energy as well. I recall a particular incident when I was explaining to a rather high strung friend of mine that her energy was exhausting. To illustrate my point a puppy was jumping up and down next to her like it was on a trampoline (bing-bing-bing) yet when it crossed the room to me it settled down immediately putting its head on my lap and mellowing out.

In Emotional Freedom, I talk about an emotional type called an Emotional Empath. This is someone who is sensitive, loving, intuitive but they are an emotional sponge. They can absorb the stress and negative energy of the world into their own bodies and get exhausted. That’s why I’ve had to practice the strategies in the book in my own life to set clear limits and boundaries with people.

How would you describe your most dominant empath skill?

Sensing what people are feeling emotionally in my own body.

From a Planetary Empath, Part I

From a Planetary Empath, Part I | Empaths | Scoop.it
On March 11, 2010, we posted our first piece about planetary empaths – those individuals who seem to have such a deep connection to the planet that they experience physical symptoms days and hours before a natural or manmade disaster. The day before, we had received emails from three women who didn’t know each other, but who commented on our blog, who were experiencing similar physical symptoms they believed were connected to an approaching disaster.

That’s how the term was born. Ever since, we’ve been trying to keep track of their symptoms and how close they occur to natural disasters. If you enter planetary empaths into the search box, you’ll get a list of the posts.
