Empaths are known as the healers of the world due to their heightened senses. They are able to not only see the different energies of the world, but feel and experience.
ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN :
People rely on empaths for support because they may see it as a gift that they possess. However, it is not always a good thing according to an empath and certainly not fun to deal with. The world has both good and evil energies, however, it is not easy dealing with no only their own emotions and energy as an empath, but also the emotions and energies of the world around them.
Empaths can either make you feel safe, or the complete opposite depending how they choose to handle their abilities, because they usually possess multiple. Many many get into deep spirituality and metaphysics in order to not only strengthen and balance themselves, but to use it to help others. Some may find healthy ways of channeling their energy through art or other hobbies and talent. This will allow those manifestations to speak for themselves.
Empaths never meet strangers but it is easy for them to put their mind, body and soul on the line, sometimes for the wrong people. They are often the carriers of their own burdens because they know how it feels and don’t want to put that burden on others.
THE DARK SIDE:
-Much confusion and depression can take place.
-Their intense abilities attract both good and evil energy
-Empaths are more susceptible to negativity
-Conflicting voices in their head
-Never likes to be alone which can go either way, good or bad for them
-It is common to label an empath as having a mental illness
-More prone to alcholism and drug abuse
-Can be abusive or aggressive
As an empath, there is not way to stop the sensitivity but there will always be perspective. Looking at the abilities as a gift and using it to not only enrich your life but others as well if far more rewarding. Energy can be transmuted through anything but what you choose to channel those energies through can empower and make you stronger and more powerful in your abilities or it can weaken you and make you an easy target.
