What Does It Mean to Be an Empath?

When we talk about empathy we’re saying that people have the ability to feel on behalf of another person. “I feel sorry for you.” or “I’m so sorry to hear that.” When a highly sensitive person (empath) receives bad news they may take empathy to a whole new degree. They really DO feel FOR you! In fact, they may feel the same emotional impact that you feel when you have a loss. They take it on as if it was their own grief. Or they may feel it in their body; if they are around someone who is sick, they may try to absorb that energy of sickness to transmute it.

The way empaths get into some trouble is by not being aware that they are an empath. They may not know what is happening to them; they just think they are very emotional or overly sensitive; they may get sick a lot. They don’t really understand that there is a spiritual reason and that they have been gifted with an ability that some people don’t have in order to help this earth become a better place.

Empaths many times take the suffering of others into their body to transmute it rather than working with higher energies that are available to help transmute detrimental energy. Anyone can work with ascending masters, angels, or archangels. We have a host of heavenly helpers in the spirit world who can assist us. These high-frequency beings need an anchor here on the earth and that’s where empaths and spiritually sensitive people come into play. We have signed up on a soul level before incarnating to be able to work with these divine helpers, but many times we get here in human form, and forgot why we are here. We get busy in mundane affairs of life and don’t spend time staying connected with our Source of strength; therefore, empaths suffer a lot.

The reason I wrote my book, Whose Stuff Is This? ~ Finding Freedom from the Detrimental Thoughts and Feelings of Those around You, is to help people find the freedom that comes from understanding the gift of empathy and knowing how to use it without paying a personal price. I published that book last year, 2011. Here we are a year later and I’m writing another book. It’s going to be like a sequel to the first book because now that we are in 2012, we are fully in what’s called the ascension or an awakening to oneness. It’s a shift into purer consciousness or purer thought and it’s affecting everything and everyone on the planet. Empaths seem to feel the impact more keenly than others. They have more symptoms of the shift as we’re moving toward our authentic selves and things that no longer serve us are going away. My next book, Shifting into Purer Consciousness, will teach the right use of energy and give helpful tips to integrate higher cosmic frequencies that are affecting the earth during this 2012 (and beyond) shift.
