Attention All Empaths!

Dear Empaths,

I have been observing and reading your posts in empath communities on social sites. What I have been reading and feeling, prompted me to write this blog.

Many of you question your empathic skills, assuming that these skills must be related to another physical trait. To put things straight, an empath can be left handed, right handed, or ambidextrous. An empath can be herbivore, omnivore, or carnivore.  An empath can be white, black, yellow, brown, blue, green, or purple. An empath can be religious, spiritual, or atheist. An empath can be an Indigo, Crystal, Rainbow, Starseed, Lightworker, or whatever other label with whom you identify. An empath can be human, animal, or plant. Everything is part of this universal energy, and every living being has the ability to be empathic.

The heart gives off an electromagnetic field that has an affect on others. This can be scientifically measured. For those of you who can feel others is a testament to your own self awareness. Those who are wrapped up in their own ego may not be aware of what others are feeling, but their energy does have an affect on those around them. You do not have special powers. You have natural life abilities. Your awareness is special and uniquely your own.

Everyone is empathic. Most humans are unaware of what they feel might be coming from someone else. For those of you who are aware of what you are feeling from others, know that there is a way to control it. First and foremost, you must recognize and own up to what YOU are feeling, your own emotions. Once you know what is yours, it becomes easier to recognize what belongs to someone else. See "Empathy 101: A Basic Understanding of Feeling Others Emotions" to get you started.

Some people are so in tuned with their empathic abilities, they are able to identify physical pain and the exact body part where the pain is located. I myself have identified the location of physical injuries with a couple of online friends. By the way, empathy is not limited to 'in person.' Energy can be 'read' over great distance, simply connect with the person you are reading; remember to disconnect when you are done.

Animals have their own emotions, and sense it from others. Those of you who notice that animals are drawn to you, I bet you have a lot of love in your heart and great kindness to animals. Plants, on the other hand are a little different. They do not have a heart or the same sensory systems that humans and animals have. However, scientists have been studying the reaction of plant life to human thoughts. It is still unclear how plants sense our thoughts and emotions, but it is clear that plants do react to pain and thoughts of harm.

So, instead of attempting to explain, compartmentalize, and analyze WHY you have the ability to feel other people. Hone in these skills. The ability to understand what another person is feeling gives you the ability to make a positive change in the world. Also note that just because you can feel what someone else is feeling does not mean you have to allow those feelings to consume you. You have the choice to transform what you feel into something positive and send it back. Return to sender, with love. Be the change.
