Signs You Are An Empath
There are a great number of empaths in our world at this time in history. Many have not yet realized they are empathic, whereas others may have always known it. Empaths are abound at many different stages of development, from not knowing, to just realizing, to learning to work with their empathic abilities, as well as those who have become masters at managing energy.
A person who is an empath, literally absorbs the energy or emotion around them. Because energy that is associated with a particular spirit, always is, that means an empath may also be able to feel that energy or emotion of spirits whether they are here with us still on this plane, alive and well, or spirits who have passed away, but still remain, as well as those who have passed to the other side, and are here momentarily visiting.
What many empaths may not realize in the beginning of the journey with this gift, is that not only do empaths absorb emotion or energy, you also project it. Thus when you are feeling very motivated, for example, everyone around you is also motivated. In turn when you are feeling very negatively, so is everyone around you.
The gift of empathy is a blessing, and is never a curse. Your perception of your empathic abilities is very important in your growth and journey, as is learning to work with, and use those abilities. There is a reason you have these abilities. The gift of empathy is a powerful gift, and is given to powerful beings. Accept this beautiful gift, and learn to use it for its highest good. You are literally part of a huge team that is here to raise the vibration levels of our world. There is certainly a long list of signs, as well as varying degrees of empathic ability.
