There are a many wonderful articles and YouTube videos describing the gifts of being empathic. Type 'empathic' in to your internet search engine and they pop up, just waiting for you to explore!


What I don't find is what we empaths are NOT.  I hope that this concise list serves as a guide for all of you who are gifted with being empathic. With everything, please use your discernment and decide what resonates with you at this time.


Empaths are not:

1. Victims

Awakening your empathic ability should not be likened to being afflicted with a contagious, wild-spreading illness, to being diagnosed with a terminal disease, or to being in a long suffering abusive relationship.  Stop seeing yourself/your gift as a victim and stop seeing your empathic nature as being an affliction.


This ability is a divine gift.  We are the leaders in Unity. We are the role models for being One with everything. We are the wayshowers for ethical and moral behavior - we know what LOVE feels like and how to offer that to all others.


When you change your perception about your gift, you will find the present and the 'suffering' will cease.


2.  Judge, Jury, and Executioner

Our empathic nature allows us unique access to emotions and thoughts that are at times buried deep within another being.    We don't have 100% insight to their highest good.  We don't know what their truth is.  We cannot judge another being. 


We should not use our ability to determine what is best for another being.  We should not use our ability to tell that being they are hiding something, that they are not truthful.  We don't know what is their highest good, what is their path to awakening - or if they will ever awaken.  


When we encounter a situation when we feel another being is hiding emotions, hiding the truth, we have to remember not to judge that being.  We must actively listen, be silent, and be compassionate.  If you are asked your opinion, then you know that you are being called to tell that being your truth.  You must ensure that you are clear - free from others etheric attachments, emotions - before you can know how to respond.


3.  Saviors / Dumping Grounds

We are not saviors/healers to the masses.  It is not our responsibility to save everyone, to heal everyone, to take on their pain and suffering.  We are not here to Save the World!   There is no being on this planet, at this time, that needs saving.  That is victim mentality.  We are not victims!


We are also not the local dump.  We are not responsible for taking on everyone's stuff!  If I came into your home and dumped nasty rotting garbage all over your furniture, bed, floors,  how would that make you feel?  So why let all your friends and family dump their crap in your temple - your body?


We ARE here to answer soul calls.  This is much different than picking up another's garbage.  It is a call from one soul to another.  It is a yearning, a desperate cry from one soul to another for help.  It is most often unspoken.  You will know when you are being called to help.  There is a strong magnetic attraction to that person.  (I believe my credit may be wrong, but the term soul call is from Soul Psychology - Martin and Carola.)


As with everything we encounter, we have a choice

  • We can choose to allow others to take advantage of our nature.
  • We can choose to allow others to dump in us.
  • We can choose to allow others to not see our divine nature. 
  • We can choose to allow pain and suffering to dictate our lives.
  • We can choose to allow only those that revere us, see us, know our divinity into our lives.
  • We can choose to be the role models for others by showing them how to learn to deal with their own emotions.  Just by being ourselves, they will learn.  We don't have to DO anything! 
  • We can choose to allow pain and suffering to flow through us, choose not to become attached to those emotions.


Being empathic is divine gift. Revel in the ability to feel!  Be vigilant about your emotions, your issues, what you are giving off.  Don't concern yourself with where everyone else is on their path and concentrate on how you can be the best you everyday.  When they awaken, they will ask for help! 


Have faith, have patience, know yourself first, and above all have FUN!  Bright blessings and love to you all!
