Understanding an Empath
Empaths are beautiful, intelligent, wise, strong amazing, talented, creative and inspirational souls.
They are often taken advantage of, taken for granted , attacked or overlooked . People tend to take from empaths and empaths often times struggle to be assertive. They can also go from extreme aggression and anger due to conditions and environments they grew up in or become quite passive.
As they explore spirituality and become awakened to the spiritual self they often times struggle to find a balance in life. Empaths have a hard time in relationships and struggle to find healthy life partners. They tend to get tangled up in toxic and unhealthy relationship patterns.
Empaths are natural healers, they feel deeply and always want to help and care for people. In relationships they feel the need to heal , nurture , fix or mend a partner. They tend to attract narcissistic partnerships and friendships, and find themselves always being the giver while the other person is the taker. But this is also a part of their journey with spiritual growth.
Empaths struggle emotionally and find it hard to find a balance with what they feel and experience, they often times suffer from illness and health related issues that are unexplained, they appear very randomly without any prior signs or symptoms. Because of having to face many obstacles and challenges empaths often suffer from deep depression, fears and anxieties. Some struggle with socializing and fitting in. They may grow up being bullied in school and become a loner. Or they may be the absolute opposite, getting involved with the wild and crazy crowd and subject themselves to unhealthy situations and environments because they wish to fit in. Often times they will absorb emotions and feelings of others. They are sometimes not even aware that they are taking on feelings and emotions of others and especially if they are not aware they are an empath. This is why for empaths it is extremely important for them to know how to cleanse, clear and protect themselves.
Empaths all go through periods of tremendous change, transformation and growth. When they become spiritually aware and awakened their journey is often difficult and they go through periods of experiencing the dark night of the soul. They have to learn to love and accept themselves but also to learn and love and accept the shadow aspects of themselves . Their journey is about seeking to find a balance in mind body and spirit but also in finding a healthy balance in life. They need to learn how to be assertive and have healthy boundaries in place with people.This is all a part of the process that leads them to self love and discovery of who they really are as spirit soul.
Unfortunately empaths are often misunderstood. Empaths , are kind compassionate and loving souls, they have a huge heart and give of themselves often to the point of depletion. They give to others and help others, putting the needs of family, friends and relationships above their own needs. This is why they often feel drained, depleted and depressed. They find it hard to say no to people they love. But the love can be a selfish love, one sided or where people tend to manipulate them using guilt tactics or other methods to get what they want.
Empaths are highly intuitive and psychic. When they ignore their intuition it is like they are at war with self. They battle deep rooted emotions. Feelings of anger , frustrations, worry, despair, sadness and many feel they are alone . They don’t feel like they belong in families they were born in or feel like they belong here.
Empaths struggle with self love, they desire to be loved and wish for deep meaningful relationships. Part of an empaths journey is to realize they are the love that they seek . Empaths are incredibly strong, even though they might not feel they are or think they are . What they experience in life is often extremely difficult, traumatic and challenging. Empaths tend to self sabotage to escape deep emotions and pain, and may abuse with drugs and alcohol to numb what they feel. But what they don’t realize is what they use to numb and escape the pain they feel from within only makes the pain they feel worse, because they also feel an incredible amount of guilt for abusing with drugs or alcohol . Many empaths struggle with wanting to live in this world because they feel so deeply and it’s all so overwhelming for them, they feel they don’t fit in anywhere. They feel they are unloved and unworthy. When they do experience periods of good in life they almost feel like they are unworthy of receiving the good. This is because they do not see their own self worth, they do not love themselves and see how unique and special they really are. That is something they have to learn when they begin to become spiritually aware and realize their gifts.
Most empaths come from a background of a difficult childhood or adolescence. They have suffered experiences from childhood or adolescence that has hurt them deeply. They haven’t had the best parents or family relationships . They tend to have mother or father issues.
All an empath really wants is to love and be loved and be able to help people . Most often empaths are huge animal lovers and this is where they feel love the most. They love having pets because of the unconditional love and acceptance they experience from a pet.
Empaths are healers, seekers of truth and justice, environmentalists, humanitarians, psychics, mediums and artists. They are expressive and creative . Above all they are the light workers of our world. They are have incarnated to be bring more love and light into the world and help others awaken to spiritual truths.
Never underestimate an empath, they are incredibly strong and powerful. They may have many obstacles , challenges and struggles within themselves and in life. And often get used and taken advantage of, but an empath sees all, feels all, knows all and hears all. They are highly intelligent souls. When an empath stands firm in their inner power , do not underestimate their kindness for weakness, and watch out. When they feel or realize they have been wronged, be prepared. For when an empath reclaims their power, the power they have been giving away, the power of God within their soul, and they find their authentic truth and voice they will come at you like a tsunami tidal wave, stronger, wiser , confident , successful and victorious. They have a tremendous amount of support from God, the Angels and spirit for their mission in life , because their life purpose is to help and be in service for the highest and greater good of all. Being an empath can be incredibly difficult because of what they go through in life. But the journey to self love and discovery of who they are and why they have come can also be incredibly beautiful.
Empaths are Earth Angels and truly special sentient souls!!
