An empathy, when discussing the term in a "psychic" sense, is someone who is able to feel the emotions of others. Sometimes to the point that they cannot tell the difference between their emotions and the emotions they are picking up on.
What exactly, as an empath, are you able to "see"?
You are not an empath by "seeing" things. I would suggest looking up the meaning of the word, as you are looking very uneducated on the subject. Not putting you down, just making you realize that your description of empath is wrong. I am empath. I "feel" others and their troubles and good things too. But I've had to learn to shield to prevent overload. So yeah, get your info right. Blessed Be...
Yes, everyone has the ability of empathy, but it's different to actually be an empath as an extra sense. Honestly, it's hard, because I feel all of the emotions around me, and I struggle with handling it, because it's like their emotion becomes my own, and it effects me negatively. So, I must do a lot meditation exercises so I can clear my mind, and calm my own emotions. However, despite the struggles, I enjoy my gift, because it allows me to help people.
I am an empathy, and after reading your message i think i need to write that you may think we are all empathies but you are not. A real empathy absorbes your energy and in this energy your emotions and all things negative And positive Is actually felt by the person. Now its not easy as u continue to feel this energy until you dont ground urself. It takes ages to master ones self. But in all emotion u feel so much that sometimes u dont realise that its others probkems and not yours. Anyhow feel free to comment.
