SOUL TRAVEL RULES: “Top 10 Signs You’re Telepathic”

Signs you’re telepathic can be obvious. If you’ve ever been able to transmit, know, or manipulate thoughts with only the use of your mind, then you may be telepathic. So, keep reading and see which signs relate to you.

People think of telepathy as being an isolated skill or a difficult and rare ability which is unreachable by the average folk. This in not true. Telepathy is present in each one of us, at least to a certain degree.

For example, when you meet a new friend or partner, you first connect with this person at an energetic level. People enter your aura even before you meet them physically.If you pay more attention to your thoughts during the day and study your dreams after each night, then you’ll sense what your dreaming self has prepared for you to experience in your physical life.

Think of your life like a beautiful theatrical play. Firstly, this play kicks off in your dreams, as you decide to have certain experiences based on your beliefs and expectations. In your physical life, you’ll notice a delay between your initial thought and the time it takes to become a real event.

Secondly, you have free will. If you learn to observe yourself in your daily life, your “Play” becomes more apparent. You discover that your learning essential abilities and solving vital problems. All of these events are for your learning purposes, designed by your inner or dreaming self to guide and expand your metaphysical abilities.

Now, telepathy has a great role to play in all of this. People you meet in your future are first contacted telepathically by your inner self. To some degree you make friends with those who have many similarities with you .Those similarities are transmitted telepathically and energetically, first and foremost.

What causes telepathy?

Telepathy is the ability to communicate information using your mind. Information is transmitted from one mind to another using means other than then your well-known perceptual senses. Telepathy ranges from the basic reading of minds to more intense power, such as implanting or disrupting thoughts in other people’s minds. There’s no one-size-fits-all reason as to why someone becomes a telepath.

But there are a few common ones. For example, there are those who are simply born with a sense of knowing. These people talk about seeing spirits and various other apparitions. But they tend to suppress their abilities as children and often lose it as adults. Alternatively, a life-changing event may open them up to being telepathic and exploring their gift even further.

Also, there are times when a near-death experience or serious accident can also open someone up and cause a telepathic awakening. And in a some cases, hypnosis or healing sessions can help a sixth sense to awaken. Such sessions help with getting energy flowing and causing a shift in awareness and consciousness.

These signs you’re telepathic might help you gain more clarity and control.

I know it can be a confusing and scary time if you’re experiencing a surge in you telepathic abilities. I want to help sooth your worries.

For that reason, I wrote 10 common signs to help you gain some clarity. I hope you find them useful on your amazing journey.

1. You experience tingling sensations.

You begin developing your third eye area the space between your eyebrows in your Chakra system. This happens for one of two reasons: either your Chakras are opening up or you are picking up specific energy signals.The tingling sensation can be highly evident during the developmental stages, but it’s harmless and eventually subsides.

2. Your connection to spirit surges.

You feel a stronger connection to the spirit world. It’s becomes increasingly easier for you to sense a presence. Whether its your loved one’s or someone elses’ loved ones. Mediumship tends to be a natural progression for those following a telepathic awakening.

3. You want to avoid negativity.

You find you’re picking up on other people’s emotions and feeling really easily. This gift is referred to as being an Empath. It comes about when your sensitivity levels increase. Also, you’ll find that being surrounded by dramatic, negative people drains you. You should honor your feelings and stay away from toxic and negative people when you can.

4. You want healthy and nourishing foods.

If you’re suddenly pushing aside the double burger and reaching for a salad it could mean you’re becoming more intuitive and beginning to vibrate at a higher frequency. So even without realizing it, you may be reaching for higher vibrational foods like fruit and vegetables. These types of foods prevent you being weighed down and help to keep vibrations light.

5. You want to read and learn more about spirituality.

If you’re becoming telepathic, then you’ll likely develop an appetite to learn. As you begin opening up and shedding your old skins, you remember the light of your soul and find that you desire to read up spiritual development surges, as you prepare to embark on you growth, transformation, and evolution.

6. You have frequent vivid dreams that give more signs you’re telepathic.

If your dreams become more frequent, and particularly vivid, then it’s another sign telepathic abilities are rising. When you sleep there is no resistance and your mind doesn’t interfere with what you intuitively receive. And as you open up, it becomes easier to reach higher levels of consciousness like a dream state. Start keeping a dream journal next to your bed. You’ll find it incredibly helpful.

7. You experience heightened sensitivity of your telepathic senses.

If you feel that your sense of hearing have heightened, or you see twinkles of light or a “something” just out of the corner of your eye, it means your telepathic senses are opening up and strengthening. This is a progressive and completely normal part of the telepathic process.

8. You receive intuitive hits.

Do you often sense something’s about to happen? Or you receive a type of third eye vision?

Some people find this type of intuition frightening and others find it exciting. If you feel afraid, set the intention that you won’t receive scary messages or visions or that you won’t receive intuitive hits, if there’s not much you can do about a situation.

Spirit guides honor such requests from us. Unfortunately, if you set your intention to this, you’ll be hindering your telepathic abilities. It is better to believe 100% in your psychic abilities and embrace them, only then can you improve your talents.

When you try to achieve any task, you must never doubt yourself. In telepathy this is particularly correct, since disbelievers are barely ever capable of uncovering their telepathic talents.

9. You get recurring headaches.

Although awful, the headaches are common and their cause is an influx of energy. If you want to try to combat the headaches, try soaking your feet in warm water. It will help you ground the energy and carries it away from your head.

Adding essential oils or Epsom salts to the water are a great way to relax further. If you feel you should, consult a doctor to ensure there aren’t any underlying causes.

10. You begin to lose old friends and make new ones.

If you’re on the path to a telepathic awakening, it’s an exciting one. Your soul is about to grow tremendously and with that you may find yourself outgrowing certain friends, and some things that you used to find important no longer are. Just go with it. The universe will put new people in your path. You just need to continue to trust.

Conclusion

When you first experience telepathy, the territory is likely to feel unfamiliar and strange. These feelings are entirely normal. You have nothing to fear. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. The time is ripe for your growth and evolution. Your excitement should be elevated and your awareness amplified.

The truth is you can continue the development of your telepathic gifts by accepting them and allowing them to take their natural course. The points I mentioned above may resonate with you. If so, I suggest you continue nurturing your gift and see where it takes you as a telepath.

As always, thank you for reading. If you feel this post would be helpful and useful to your friends and family, then remember to share it with them too.

ALETHEIA LUNA: “4 Popular Myths About Being An Empath”

Thin-skinned, hyper-sensitive, sooky, wimpy, spineless, wussy, feeble, weak, fragile, melodramatic, temperamental…

If you can relate to, or have been called a combination of any of these words, chances are you’re part of a unique group of people: the Empaths.

Occurring in an estimated 5% of the population, Empaths are known for their highly developed ability to sense the emotions and thoughts of the people around them. As author and empath Christel Broederlow put it “empaths often possess the ability to sense others on many different levels”, this includes the abilities to intimately understand what a person desires, yearns for, and is currently feeling, suffering or thinking, as well as the ability to feel other people’s bodily illnesses. These occurrences manifest themselves as energy vibrations that the finely tuned empath can pick up on, or “tune into”.

Commonly identifying as clairsentients and HSP’s, Empaths possess an ability that is both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, the empath is an excellent listener and counselor, knowing the best way to comfort and assist those around them. On the other, being an empath can be painful and tiring. It’s common for the empath to be weighed down and constantly congested with the negative emotional energy of others, often creating physical and psychological disharmony.

Although the empath has a wonderful gift, and is often greatly cherished by those around them, they are often challenged and confronted by a variety of misguided perceptions towards their innate gift.

Myths & Misunderstandings

“You need to grow some thicker skin! Stop being so overly sensitive.” I wish I could tell you how many times I heard that in my childhood! Growing up as an empath, you may have experienced similar insults from your parents, friends or peers, and perhaps even worse.

It’s not at all trendy or popular to be sensitive or feeling in our society that values efficiency, cold calculation and industrial resilience. Therefore, you may have experienced and still experience, a lot of antagonism towards your behavior as an Empath. I will explore 4 of these main misconceptions below.

Myth #1 – Empaths are navel-gazing and self-absorbed.

Truth – We often focus more on others than on ourselves.

It’s true that Empaths are often unexplainably moody and quiet on the outside. However, this isn’t because they’re excessively absorbed thinking too much about themselves and their feelings. Rather, the empath is often deeply affected by the exterior emotions of others that he experiences as his own. The empath’s ability to intuitively feel the feelings of others is what weighs him down so much. In fact, it’s characteristic of the empath to pay more attention to others needs than his own.

Myth #2 – Empaths are mentally ill.

Truth – We are magnets for negative energy. This often creates psychological disbalance within us.

Empaths are excellent listeners, confidants and counselors. For this reason, it’s common for people to be drawn towards their sincere and caring natures, almost like magnets. Therefore, empaths often experience a lot of “emotional baggage dumping” from other people, and have difficult releasing themselves from the negative energy that remains in their minds and bodies afterwards.

Unfortunately, this can lead to a lot of lingering depressive emotions that the empath is left with. Thus, the empath can appear to be mentally ill and depressed, and in some cases legitimately is. However, in most cases the empath is congested with remnants of harmful emotional energy, like sinuses are congested with mucus during a flu virus.

The root of the problem doesn’t lie with the empath , it’s a result of their outer emotional climate.

Myth #3 – Empaths are psychologically frail.

Truth – We are biologically programmed to be more sensitive and in tune with our surrounding environment.

As empath Nicole Lawler wrote, Empaths are essentially “walking around in this world with all the accumulated karma, emotions, and energy from others”. Understandably, this results in a lot of inner emotional tension for the empath who is more prone to crying and exhibiting other signs of “weakness”.

Additionally, the empath finds it extremely difficult to partake in many “normal” activities. For instance, watching a movie about Nazi concentration camps is extremely emotionally upsetting for the empath , and getting a job in an office is overwhelming and tiring for the empath who is bombarded with other people’s emotions constantly. Therefore, it’s not surprising that the empath is often perceived as “wussy”, “frail” or “weak minded” to the person who fails to comprehend the constant pressure the empath lives under.

The fact that most empaths aren’t driven clinically insane by the constant emotional flux they experience is testimony enough to their mental strength.

Myth #4 – Empaths are lazy.

Truth – We often lack mental, emotional and physical energy due to our intense empathetic ability to understand others.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) amongst other physical issues like headaches, insomnia and Fibromyalgia, have all been commonly attributed to Empaths.

If our minds are constantly overloaded with stress, tension and pressure, it therefore translates that our bodies are as well. This often results in sicknesses such as the ones mentioned above. Thus empaths often lack the energy and therefore desire to do many things, preferring to relax (including taking naps) instead.

MATEO SOL: “5 Things Every Sensitive Man Should Know”

If you have grown up as a male in our society you’ve been taught one very clear message: emotions are a weakness, big boys don’t cry.

Being “strong” means you have to be forceful, aggressive, competitive and largely unemotional. If for some reason you are born sensitive, cooperative and compassionate, you are perceived as “weak,” “effeminate” or “weird.”

Throughout history, men have gained their identity, peer respect and self-worth through status, sexual prowess and money all of which contributed to their sense of power. In a physically demanding hunter-gatherer and agricultural world, men had to be the warriors that shouldered the responsibility of providing for their families. But now as women have become more independent with our society shifting to value mental labor over physical labor, men are struggling to let go of their old warrior habits and role dynamics.

However, regardless of our external bodies and sexual orientations, we all carry differing degrees of masculine and feminine energy. Some people will carry equal amounts, others will carry more of one than of the other (which might oppose their physical bodies), as can be seen in females referred to as “tomboys” and sensitive men.

It saddens me to see so many fellow men who outright ignore their sensitivity, or are aware of it but choose to reject or hide it. Many people associate sensitivity with neuroticism or low self-esteem, and courage with “numbing the pain.” Sensitivity and courage are not mutually exclusive. To be sensitive is to be aware of the feelings and perspectives of other people as well as your own. To be courageous means to be completely aware and to feel fear yet to still fight for what you feel is right or what you want.

In fact sensitivity and courage can compliment each other; the greater your sensitivity and fear is, the greater your courage has to be to fight through it.

In psychology, Carl Jung was aware of the differences between masculine and feminine energy, and divided them into his Anima and Animus Archetypes. Personally, I’ve found that by embracing my sensitivity as a male and using it alongside my logic and courage, I have become a much wholer human being. In the end, to be intelligent is useless unless you can combine it with sensitivity. When intelligence is filtered through sensitivity, it becomes wisdom.

5 Things Every Sensitive Man Should Know

Here are some vital lessons I’ve learned as a sensitive man that I want to pass on:

1. Sensitivity Helps You to Grow Deeper Connections

When a man is capable of transforming his insecurity about being sensitive into something empowering, it can allow him to create deeper connections with others. For instance, I’ve found that when I go beyond simply sharing factual information and opinions with my male friends, I see a whole new side to them which is more meaningful and creates a deeper long-term bond.

2. Sensitivity Encourages Emotional Maturity

I feel that the evolution of men will be one towards a balance of strength and sensitivity. One of the biggest struggles for men in relationships is to openly express their emotions or show vulnerability. This emotional distancing is done to display “strength,” but quite often the more sensitive female lover perceives this as ambivalence, being “unavailable” or even a phobia towards commitment. To be able to give love, show love and receive love freely is incredibly attractive.

3. Sensitivity Makes You More Body-Conscious

Sensual awareness is not limited to sex (although it does make you a better lover), but rather, it extends to the body as well. The greater your sensitivity is to your body and its senses, the more you’ll learn about yourself, the better you’ll be able to take care of yourself, and the healthier you’ll feel. However, I’ve observed that often many sensitive male students of mine have tried to drown their emotions out with food as an unconscious buffer.

As a sensitive man, I’ve discovered a variety of foods that I can feel my body quickly rejects by making me feel subtly ill. I’ve also learned that having long hair not only allows me to express my Anima externally, but it also serves as an extension of my nervous system amplifying my empathic senses. It’s no surprise that the Incas, Mayas, the Samurai and the Native Americans were aware of this (the latter using their hair almost like “antennae.”)

4. Sensitivity Allows You to Become More Creative

Creativity is not the result of logical empirical deduction, it is the child of playfulness and sensitivity. Creativity is born in the right side of the brain instead of the left.

To be a painter, writer, musician, actor, photographer or anything creative requires a sensitivity towards beauty and emotion.

5. Sensitivity Helps You to Grow Spiritually

A thirst for wisdom and truth can only come to those who possess a spiritual sensitivity. To strive toward a better society and the peace of man demands an immense amount of courage to stand up against the status quo and a great spiritual sensitivity to question it.

Jesus, Buddha, the Dalai Lama, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr. were all figures who possessed this quality to speak the truth and question cultural morality, virtue and justice. Many people who have embraced their sensitivity will know that they are often the ones whom their friends come to, to ask for counsel and advice.

How to Embrace Your Sensitivity

In our society men are rarely taught how to express their feelings, and so it can be very difficult to know where or how to begin. In fact, if you are like most men, you’ll find it difficult to even become aware of what you’re feeling in the first place, e.g. how the mood of your boss may be affecting you, or how the stress from your busy schedule is making you short-tempered. And when someone asks how you are, you are so disconnected from your emotions that you’ll resort to the habitual “I’m fine,” making it harder for anyone to provide any support.

Ignoring feelings won’t making them disappear though, in fact, the more we ignore our feelings the larger they’ll grow. I’ve often seen men who appear to be well and calm before they burst out in an explosion of anger or rage when something bad happens. It’s often these very same men who become isolated and depressed due to their tendency to avoid and limit their social contact to avoid emotional vulnerability.

How do we embrace our sensitivity? Recognizing and accepting ourselves as sensitive men is the first step. No matter what “macho” ideals you’ve been taught, sensitivity is a gift, not a weakness. To be more empathetic and to be able to appreciate art, music and beauty, is a blessing. While burying our feelings is certainly easier, acknowledging our feelings helps us to empower ourselves which requires much more courage, and is a lot more rewarding. Can you imagine how many wars and ecological forms of destruction could have been avoided if we all cultivated greater sensitivity?

The next step is to examine your feelings about sensitivity. Is it a “weakness” or some kind of illness to you? You’ll have to change the core beliefs you hold about masculine sensitivity in order to accept it. Only after this can you integrate aspects of your sensitivity into your daily life. You can do this by changing your old habits of ignoring or hiding your sensitivity and instead decide to slowly process through them, expressing them to yourself and your trusted loved ones.

It takes time and effort, but changing our personal paradigms is essential in order to embrace our own sense of personal power. It’s time to change this outdated male ideal of aggressiveness, thick-skin and emotional retardation. By empowering sensitive men with self-confidence, we’ll all contribute to a more peaceful, balanced and healthy planet.

Once you become aware of your feelings and have learned to express them, you’ll begin drawing loving people into your life, you’ll be able to help others through their own problems, and you’ll be able to feel as though every part of you is living life to the fullest.

CHRISTINA SARICH: ” 4 Super Powers Of The Highly Empathic”

mind-brain-storm-140721

Many empathic or highly sensitive people feel that their ability to feel so many different emotional energies in their environments is a curse, but with recent research suggesting that empaths are actually highly psychic, you may want to hone your empathic skills instead of hiding them away, or bemoaning their existence.  Here are 4 super-powers of empathic people, that you too can develop:

1.) Read People’s Minds

Empaths have a form of psychic ability that is considered a rare gift.

Mind reading isn’t a parlor trick.  We all do it to some degree, taking cues from people’s body language, and verbal discourse.  A skilled non-verbal decoder can tell if someone is lying, someone is happy or sad (even if they claim to be the opposite), or if they are manipulating others with their speech and gestures.  We can all be ‘mentalists’ picking up on inconsistencies in someone’s words and body language, but empaths take it a step further.

Many empaths receive psychic images, statements, hues, or smells intuitively which indicate to them, a reality beyond which most are aware.  If you pick up on these energies unwillingly, you could instead focus on them, and see if you can create an even stronger psychic experience, turning your empathic skills into full-blown ESP.  Then you can literally walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, and know exactly what that would feel like. IMAGINE the possibilities.

How many wrong turns, missteps, or arguments could you avoid?  How much success could you experience learning from others’ mistakes?  Knowing when someone is lying, or telling the truth?  Priceless.  Instead of shunning your empathic ability to feel everything — use it to become a true mind reader.

2.) Become Your Own Emotion Superhero

If you have a crazy ability to empathize with others, why not turn this around, and use it to your own benefit?  So many people today are completely disconnected from their own emotions.  You aren’t.  This may seem like a tremendous burden — feeling what they ought to feel, AND feeling what you feel, but if you were able to develop some discernment, and focus on your own emotional growth, this gift can become your greatest super power.

The act of listening to your own feelings and thoughts is self-empathy — it’s compassion in action.  It could completely and utterly change how you communicate with people.

For instance, let’s say you are visiting family for the holidays or a long weekend and one of your uncles says, “Don’t you know this president is going to ruin the nation?”  Your internal dialogue as an empath might be something like, “Oh my God, he has no clue how every person is affecting this country, and this planet, and the people who are running the show aren’t presidents or politicians, they may not even be on this planet! What an idiot.”  This is what your emotional triggers might be around a simple statement that someone from your family makes.  But what if you honored those feelings and learned how to communicate them lovingly?

What if instead, you internally stated, “Wow, hearing what my uncle just said alarms me, to the point of even feeling panicked because that statement doesn’t agree with the world I see, or how I believe this Universe is formed, and I’m scared of being at odds with my family member.”  Super power indeed.

Empaths can trigger heart-based communication by honoring their emotions.

You could instead say to your Uncle from this emotionally aware place, “Yes, we all ruin the world a little or make it closer to a paradise every day by the thoughts, deeds, and actions we engage in.”  This statement might go over his head, or open up a whole different type of dialogue that is more in alignment with who you are.

3.) Transmute the Negative Only You Can Feel

So many people are affected by negative influences which are invisible in the world today.  Empaths are acutely aware of this.  An empath can even walk into a room where a negative conversation or act just transpired, and though it isn’t currently happening, they can sense the negative energy that lingers.

Flowers can change the energy of an environment.

Instead of being a victim of this sensitivity to energy —  look for positive energy first, and TRANSMUTE that negative energy.  Practice a quiet five-minute Tonglen meditation.  Bring high-energy plants or flowers to a place with low energy, or simply utter encouraging words and thoughts to people around you who were also affected by the negativity.  Even better?  Find the humor in the situation and share it.  Even the most vile circumstance has a funny side to it.  Use laughter to literally create intimacy and openness where there was none.

4.) Turn Your Sensitivity Into a Highly Coveted Skill

Do the wrong sheets make you break out in hives?  Are certain smells absolutely revolting to you?  Do non-organic foods cause you terrible gastrointestinal distress?  Do you need quiet in order to sleep, and alone time in order to off-load all the smells, sights, sounds, and emotions you’ve absorbed all day long?  Instead of looking at this trait as if it were a burden, use it to your advantage.

Need more beauty and peace as an empath?  Create it yourself.

You could become a perfumer, and advise companies on removing chemicals and adding natural scents to their products.  You could help others eat divinely prepared food by becoming an organic chef.  You could develop quiet spaces like gardens, libraries, or meditation rooms that not only you need, but that others would revel in, without even realizing that they were desperate for your gift.  Use those sensitivities to create a peaceful haven in the world, and your empathic skills are no longer a curse, but used to fulfill your life’s purpose.

There are many more ways you can put your empathic super-powers to good use.  Feel free to share your ideas in the comments section, or when you share this article to social media.

RAVEN FON: “16 Things You’ll Notice When You’re In The Presence Of An Empath”

in-the-presence-of-an-empath

 

“Yes, we notice a lot of what goes on around us—

but you’ll notice some things about us too.”

~Raven Fon

 

Can you remember an instance when someone, a complete stranger, poured their heart out to you?  It probably happened without warning, and the emotions they were feeling were coursing through your heart as well.

There is something magnetic about an empath; they have a force that draws other’s towards them.  These people who open up to you, they don’t know why they do it— and it doesn’t matter.  We give them comfort and reassurance, and after riding the roller-coaster with them, we do our best to help them find peace.

I can’t count how many experiences I have had like that— what about you?

Author of Non-Violent Communication,  Marshall Rosenberg, gives us a concise definition of what empathy really is:

 

“In empathy, you don’t speak at all.  You speak with the eyes.  You speak with the body.  If you say any words at all, it’s because you are not sure you are with the person.  So you may say some words.  But the words are not empathy.  Empathy is when the other person feels the connection to with what’s alive in you.”

So, yes, we notice a lot of what goes on around us— but you’ll notice some things about us too.

 

16 SIGNS YOU’RE IN THE PRESENCE OF AN EMPATH

 

1.  We are often told we’re “too sensitive” or “too emotional.”

Empaths aren’t “too” this or that.  What others describe as “over-feeling” is really just being in-touch with emotions— theirs and yours.

2.  We really dislike being lied to.

It barely takes a glance in your direction and we know you’re lying.  The majority of people hate being lied to, but it really sucks for an empath.  It literally makes our skin feel gross and we feel that disgust every time we are around them.

3.  Negative images directly affect us.

Empaths find it nearly impossible to “unfeel” something.  The news?  Stories of violence and heartbreak on social media?  We avoid them like the plague.  We are well aware of the pain in the world, and we feel it daily.

4.  We feel overwhelmed by crowds.

Empaths encompass every personality type.  We are introverts, extroverts, and ambiverts.  Yet, even the most outgoing of us can become easily overwhelmed in crowds.  We absorb everyone’s feeling and energies… it’s exhausting, to say the least.

5.  We find happiness through healing.

Empaths are there to help; we try to guide you towards healing.  Just like with all of our advice, it only helps if you actually implement it in your life.

6.  We react differently to stimulants and medications.

Whether it is coffee or tea, soda or an energy drink, anything containing caffeine tends to make us feel more anxious or agitated than others.  Also, we do our best to avoid prescription medication as much as possible due to the numerous, and unpleasant, side effects we experience.

7.  We can’t be anyone except us.

If you’re looking for honesty and a true friendship, empaths are who you should be searching for (but we’ll likely find you first).  We have grown into who we are, and we embrace who we are becoming.  Usually, it is others who have an issue with our sensitivity and honest nature.

8.  We know what you are going through because we are going through it with you.

If you’re not feeling well, are feeling overwhelming sadness and depression, or if you’re agitated, we are going through all of those things with you.  We’re connected to those we care about, and we care about everyone.

9.  We have a special bond with animals.

Empaths don’t ‘own’ animals, and we don’t have pets.  We have family members.  Looking at animals in the wild, we see a perfect and pure soul… a love incapable of hate.  We have conversations with them as you would anyone else, and sometimes, we even get a response.

10.  We are usually tired, exhausted, and worn out.

We deal with more than just our personal emotions and mental drains, we deal with everyone else’s as well.  Every day we are around other people, we absorb, process, and release what those around us are experiencing.  And those are the lucky ones who have figured out how to process so they can release, instead of holding onto everything until they can no longer function.

11.  If you ask for our advice, please take it.

We listen to every word you say, we put ourselves in your shoes, and we deliver heartfelt advice.  Is it too much to ask for you to listen to it?  The thing is, we know what we are talking about— and you do too.  In fact, we are telling you the exact same thing that you know you should do.  We know it.  You know it.  So, and I mean this in the nicest way possible, either take the advice or stop asking because it wears on our patience.

12.  We become distracted rather easily.

Maybe it’s because of our heightened sensitivity to everyone and everything around us, but empaths tend to lose focus easily and become distracted.  There is a bright side to this: empaths notice and appreciate all the little things most people never take the time to notice.

13.  We genuinely detest narcissism.

Empaths can spot a narcissist a mile away, and that’s about as close as we like to get to one.

14.  We are hyper-sensitive to certain sounds.

A certain pitch, a slight buzz, and loud noises can really get to us.  However, it isn’t just sounds— we are also sensitive to textures, fabrics, and bright lights as well.  We experience the polar opposite too!  Gentle sounds, soft caresses, and delicate tastes are noticed just as intensely, but in a pleasing manner.

15.  We are excellent listeners.

Go on, tell us everything about your life from the seemingly insignificant, to the drastically transformative.  We will do more than listen— we will embark on that journey along side you, and experience every high and low found within.  On top of that, you never have to worry about any judgment on our part; we never want to hurt, only to help.

16.  Electronics act up around us.

I know this sounds strange to those who have not experienced it, but it happens.  We get shocked by touching the same things you normally do, and electronic equipment acts strange around us.  Computers glitch, cars stall, phones die— if it has a current or a charge, it is probably going to affect us or be affected by us.

 

For those of you who have read this article and telling yourself, “Finally! I have a word for all of this and it makes sense now!”  I am glad you have gained some insight into your gift.  And that is exactly what it is— a gift. It is something that we can learn from, and share with others.  Remember to make time for yourself, where your only focus is you.  Even just 5 minutes a day of silence and relaxed breathing can make a world of difference when it comes to handling emotional stress— and that’s good advice for everyone, not just empaths.
