Psychic empaths are individuals gifted with the unique and extraordinary ability to feel others’ feelings and emotions as their own. In this article, I will refer to psychic empaths as simply empaths. Most people born with this gift don’t realize they have it until they’re in their teenage years or adult years.
Most empaths are timid and hypersensitive as children and are confused by the adults around them’s reactions to their sensitivity. There’s a difference between being a psychic empath and just being an empathic person. Empathic people can understand and relate to other people’s emotions, but they don’t actually FEEL them as their own.
They might hear a sad story and feel sorry for the person going through the situation, maybe even help them, but they can move on. They don’t feel it deep inside themselves and let it affect their souls profoundly. Psychic empaths literally feel like they are the ones experiencing this sad situation, which affects them physically and mentally.
Once a person realizes they’re empaths, they must learn to separate THEIR feelings from the feelings and emotions of others. After they’ve mastered how to do that, they need to figure out a way to put up a wall or barrier that keeps the feelings of others from intruding on their own. Even after finding a way to do this and practicing it, most empaths still need a lot of alone time. This alone time helps them recharge and keeps them emotionally and spiritually balanced.
What Can Empaths Do?
Empaths are excellent listeners and thrive in careers where that’s essential. Energy work, psychic advisor, counseling, and social work are all great professions for them. People are naturally drawn to empaths and will readily share with them very personal information about themselves and their lives. The reason is that they feel a special connection to them and know they aren’t being judged or criticized.
Empaths that put their skills to work in the psychic field vary in type and ability level. For example, one who can receive impressions from an object or objects has the gift of Psychometry. Psychometry is especially useful to police and law enforcement in solving crimes. Empaths who can see and speak to spirits are considered Mediums.
Some empaths can heal people by feeling their symptoms inside themselves and transferring energy from negative to positive. They are known as Psychic, Energy or Reiki Healers. Some empaths specialize as pet psychics because they’re incredibly skilled in animal communication. Empaths tuned explicitly in with the Earth and nature might practice something called Geomancy.
Geomancy is a skill where empaths pick up on and feel the energy of the Earth. This practice can help us predict the approach of bad weather, find underground water, and douse. Aside from feeling emotions within themselves, some empaths have heightened levels of precognition. They are especially good at knowing when things are about to happen. They’re known as Precognitive, or Precogs.
Another rare skill some empaths have is called Claircognizance. Claircognizance is the ability to automatically and naturally know what needs to be done in any situation, especially bad ones and crises. People tend to be confident in what the empath instructs them to do during a difficult situation because of their calm, peaceful, and self-assured manner.
Being An Empath Isn’t Always Easy
Empaths may be blessed with these beautiful and life-changing skills, but they come at a very high price. Empaths are often misunderstood and even ridiculed for being the way they are. Since they’re so in tune with and sensitive to their surroundings and environment, many suffer from ailments that doctors can never diagnose, such as physical aches, pains, and strange allergies that medicine can’t fix. Even though their gifts are incredible, it doesn’t mean they know everything there is to know or that they can cure all of the world’s problems.
Psychic Empaths Through History
Psychics have been around since the beginning of time. Different religions had their names for them, such as oracles, seers, priests, priestesses, mystics, and so on, before the emergence of Christianity. Even the bible refers to some psychic seers. Samuel used his visions to locate the donkey of the future King Saul, and King David had a seer named Gad. Amaziah urged a seer named Amos to leave Judah and do his foreseeing in a different land.
One of the most well-known and recognized psychics from ancient times is the Greek Oracle of Delphi. While this may sound like a person, it was the name of the office held by the wisest woman in the land of Delphi. Historians say she could receive and interpret messages directly from the god Apollo.
Egypt had a seer known as the High Priest of Rah, which means ‘The Greatest of Seers.’ Almost everyone has heard the name Nostradamus before, making him one of the most well-known seers around the world. He was alive during the French Revolution, and his prophecies have never gone out of print since he began writing them!
The Spiritualist Movement began and expanded during the mid-1800s when astronomers discovered the planet Neptune. Planet Neptune rules psychics, and many psychics flourished during this time, including Edgar Cayce, Madame Blavatsky, and Daniel Dunglas Home. The New Age Awakening of the 1970s and 1980s is when psychic empaths began to be recognized in their category, apart from regular psychics, despite existing since the beginning of time.
How Can Psychic Empaths Help People?
Since psychic empaths are born with the natural ability to feel the emotions and feelings of the world around them, they are incredibly understanding and compassionate. They may greet and look at you with their eyes, but they also see you with their body- feeling your emotions as their own. Psychic empaths are also very adept at knowing when someone is telling them the truth or lying to them.
Since they can feel your emotions, knowing whether you’re being honest with them or not is second nature to them. They can also identify what area you need guidance and healing in just by talking with you. Consulting a psychic empath is incredibly calming and stress-relieving because you’re talking to someone who completely understands and accepts your emotions without question or judgment.
Should I Get A Reading With A Psychic Empath?
Getting a reading from a psychic empath is very rewarding in and of itself. The way they’re able to tune into your emotions and feelings provides you with a sense of ease and calm unlike anything else. It’s also incredibly insightful and revealing. Empaths can help you identify emotional blocks and assist you with dissolving them, allowing you to work through any difficult or complex emotional issues you may have.
They can reveal your subconscious motives- things you never knew about yourself. Don’t consult an empath in the hopes of having them predict your future, though. Instead, consult them to help work past any issues you’re stuck on and help you move forward.
