So, I've been friends with empaths for years. Like everyone I am close to. After some thought with a fellow witch. We have figured that I seem to be something that empaths gravitate to. She said I tend to just radiate calmness and when she is around me, her empath abilities are not overwhelming. Like I am an emotional shield in some way.
My question is, has anyone hear of this? If so, what is it called? I'd like to research this, but very difficult without a term to search.

I have had people say the same thing about me. And when we have guests at our home they are always commenting on how calming and peaceful it seems.
I don't believe this is a magical ability or tied to magic directly. It has more to do with one's ability to be calm in the middle of stress and to therefore share that calm even unconcsiously with others. One way to achieve this is by having the knowledge and ability to "ground and center". Grounding and centering isn't magic, but it can be very useful in doing magic.
I learned how to be calm in the midst of chaos and therefore to keep those around me calm as well while working as an Army trauma nurse. I couldn't afford to let the situation take over or I couldn't give my patients proper care.
