At A Glance: 30 Traits of an Empath

At A Glance: 30 Traits of an Empath | Empaths | Scoop.it

1. Knowing: Empaths just know stuff, without being told. It’s a knowing that goes way beyond intuition or gut feelings, even though that is how many would describe the knowing. The more attuned they are the stronger this gift becomes.

 

2. Being in public places can be overwhelming: Places like shopping malls, supermarkets or stadiums, where there are lots of people around, can fill the Empath with turbulently vexed emotions that are coming from others.

 

3. Feeling others emotions and taking them on as your own: This is a huge one for Empaths. To some, they will feel emotions off those near by and with others they will feel emotions from those a vast distance away, or both. The more adept Empath will know if someone is having bad thoughts about them, even from a great distance.

The Highly Sensitive Person

The Highly Sensitive Person | Empaths | Scoop.it

Welcome. I'm Elaine Aron, author of The Highly Sensitive Person and The Highly Sensitive Child, as well as The Highly Sensitive Person Workbook and The Highly Sensitive Person in Love, a book about how sensitivity affects our close relationships. I began researching high sensitivity in 1991 and continue to do research on it now, also calling it Sensory-Processing Sensitivity (SPS, the trait's scientific term). I never planned to write any self-help books, but those who have this trait seem to gain a great deal from knowing about it.

Being an Empath | Empaths incarnate into this world without a manual. | Empaths | Scoop.it


magine being able to feel and sense everything, whether positive or negative around you, 24/7. An Empath can’t turn off empathy (unlike someone who is perhaps ‘empathising’). It is possibly one of the most challenging of psychic gifts to master. I am an Empath who has spent nearly two decades, since awakening, mastering my empathic nature. It is an ongoing process. I am still not perfect and not sure that I ever will be whilst incarnated here. I am however content, despite the challenges of integration, as I see it as an incredible gift to humanity..

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.

Empathic Shock | What is Empathic Shock? | Empaths | Scoop.it

To maintain it simple, Empathic Shock is very comparable to Medical Shock and frequently happens in comparable circumstances. A mundane human being experiences shock when they see, hear about or expertise a trauma in their lives, generally something Extremely traumatic has to occur to bring about shock.

 

With Empaths, it is more subtle and happens a lot more readily. The reason, Empaths find themselves far more avoidant and cautious towards actions that can trigger empathic shock.

Empathy And Tuning In from Psychic Experiences

Empathy And Tuning In from Psychic Experiences | Empaths | Scoop.it

I am an Empath. Now for those of you who do not know, an Empath is one who feels what others feel around them; we have the innate ability to tune into and read people's emotions and feelings, however seldom at will. Throughout my time on this site and looking through various posts and stories about Empathy and Empaths, one of the biggest, if not the biggest, questions is "how do I control my ability?" Plain and simple in a nutshell, you can't. Now I know that's a very blunt, conclusive response, but it's true and it's to the point as far as control goes with Empathy. But if you really, really, desperately seek something that reaches as close to "control" over Empathy as is possible, then you've come to the right post:

Are You Unconsciously Empathetic?

Are You Unconsciously Empathetic? | Empaths | Scoop.it

Empathy is a beautiful quality whereby we have the ability to step out of our own experience and understand someone else’s.

 

Isn’t Being Empathetic A Good Thing?

 

If you’re highly in tune with your empathetic radar, you may have started to realize that feeling other people’s pain and emotions can also be incredibly draining, particularly if you’re taking on people’s sadness or unhappiness on a daily basis.

 

Over time, this negative energy will not only leave you feeling drained, but it will limit your own joy and ability to live in the moment, as you’re so consumed with everyone else’s experiences. On the other side of the coin, running to someone else’s emotional rescue all the time can be detrimental to their progress, too.

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.
