When I think of empathy, the first thing that crosses my mind is an invisible, yet extremely powerful shield made from love and purity. I think of compassion and tenderness. I visualize generous and humane individuals who are kind to each other.
I see a peaceful world. And individuals with a sole purpose of spreading the much-craved peace and love in our Universe. Their Highness – The empaths.
I know you’ve heard the term before, but for those who aren’t aware of what these special beings possess, empaths are people with special abilities that help them feel the mental and emotional state of another individual.
They carry our load, they relive our hardship, they understand our irrational mind more than anyone in the world. Most importantly, they make this world a beautiful place to live in.
Here are 8 signs that might help you reveal your empathic nature:
1. YOUR POSSESS A POWERFUL INTUITION
Empaths are known as the individuals who have a strong and powerful connection with their intuition. Their entire existence is governed by the power of their inner voice. The gut feeling.
The best defensive mechanism we have against everything in the world. The most accurate part of ourselves that has a genuine sense of right and wrong.
That is why, they tend to follow this silent, inner voice.
2. YOU FEEL OTHER PEOPLE’S EMOTIONS AS IF THEY WERE YOUR OWN
Empaths have the power to pick up on other people’s thoughts, emotions and energies without even saying a word. They have a highly intuitive nature which enables them to read our minds.
So, if you also experienced some unexplained fatigue or a strange sensation, it might be the sign that you’re capable of absorbing other people’s energies as well. You might be an empath, without being aware of it.
3. BUT YOU PREFER TO PRESERVE YOUR FEELINGS INSIDE YOURSELF
Have you ever felt that you have so much inside of you that you want to share, but it always seems better to just keep those things for yourself?
If the answer is yes and you would rather listen and help people instead of opening up to someone, then you might be an empath.
They are naturally inclined to help others with their issues, so when it comes to them, they might have a hard time expressing their emotions.
4. YOU OFTEN EXPERIENCE FATIGUE
Possessing this incredible gift of eternal compassion and kindness is the most beautiful thing a person can have. However, there are also some undesirable side-effects.
Because of their highly intuitive and perceptive nature, empaths tend to absorb energies that have a low-frequency vibration. And oftentimes, these harmful, negative vibrations have the power to completely drain the empath.
The result is over exhaustion and extreme, unexplained fatigue.
If you are an empath, make sure to take care of yourself by staying away from those so-called energy-vampires.
5. RANDOM PEOPLE ARE STRANGELY DRAWN TO YOU
Once you find yourself in a presence of an empathic soul, believe me, you’ll feel it. These unique human beings radiate kindness and light. In fact, they are the light.
Their beautiful soul has the power to attract random people who just need someone to talk to. Someone to whom they can open their hearts.
So, if this is all too familiar to you and you enjoy helping everyone around you, consider yourself an empath.
6. YOU KEEP AN OPEN MIND AND CLEAN HEART
Empaths have an eternal thirst for knowledge and life. They know what their purpose on Earth is and they strongly believe that we’re all here for a reason.
So, they tend to keep an open mind. They wish to absorb as much as they can until their time on Earth is done. They want to discover more about this world, about this universe, about the extraordinary human nature.
7. YOU’LL NEVER FIT IN THE CONFORMIST, BORING SOCIETY
If your biggest wish is to heal and make this planet a better place for everyone, you truly are an empath.
Empaths have difficulties fitting in this conformist, mainstream society we live in. They wish to express their creativity and emotions in a unique manner.
Because the average and usual life that people lead is too destructive and harmful to our society. It keeps destroying our world.
8. YOUR FIELD OF INTEREST GRAVITATES AROUND SPIRITUALITY AND PHYSICS
Empathic beings have the power to see beyond our 3D, conformist world. That is why their field of interest always gravitates around fields that aren’t so familiar to the average person.
If you feel more spiritually aware than others, enjoy indulging in mediations, or discovering the many wonders of our universe, that is a huge sign that you’re indeed an empath.
