While in a time of great confusion and distress, I met another empath. My grandmother had told me not too long before that my sister and I were protected by the archangels Michael and Gabriel. Oddly enough, the woman's last name was in fact, Gabriel. Just before meeting her, I was anxious and felt overwhelmed by everything that had been going on, after talking, that all went away. I felt at peace, almost in a trance. My mother felt it too, despite having tings to do and the pressure of work, it felt like that could wait. As if it was secondary instead of priority. Maybe it was just how she was, her attitudes towards life that was expressed in that sort amount of time we spoke, but I'm wondering if it was more than that. Any ideas are welcome with an open mind, please, help?
Hello, this is what I believe happened. The answer is multifold. Your grandmother is correct that you are protected by your Archangels. The fact that the woman's last name was Gabriel, a not too common name, was confirmation for you. You likely had confirmation about Michael also, but being more common, it did not "jump out" as much at you. As for how you and your mother felt with her, it could be part in how she spoke and what she said, but I highly suspect it was more about her energetic vibration than anything else. Please let me explain. If her energy vibration is high, it feels good to be around her. And you feel good around her. When you are around someone like that, there is one of three things that can happen. Their energy goes down, your energy goes up or, you leave because you cannot feel comfortable around them. Obviously your energy and your mother's energy was raised by being in her presence. Also by being in her aura. Not only did she raise your energy level she likely has the ability of some empaths do like myself to ground other people. Therefore by raising your vibration and grounding you you had a much calmer effect then when you first walked in.
The word " angel " comes from the greek word aggelos, which means " messenger ".
Sometimes the bible, use those words to describe ordinary people with messages.
But it usually describes the whole range of spirits whom God has createed. Both good and evil ( fallen ) angels. The energy of an angel is soothing, peaceful, good.
Now empaths are different.
An empath is a highly sensitive person. Empaths feel things deeply, sometimes even to an extreme. They are highly sensitive and get their feelings easly hurt.
"The trademark of empaths is that they know where youre coming from. Some can do this without taking on peoples feelings. However, for better or worse, others, like myself and many of my patients, can become angst-sucking sponges. This often overrides the sublime capacity to absorb positive emotions and all that is beautiful. If empaths are around peace and love, their bodies assimilate these and flourish. Negativity, though, often feels assaultive, exhausting. Thus, theyre particularly easy marks for emotional vampires, whose fear or rage can ravage empaths. "
Usually people that are going through a rough fase or dealing with stressful feelings, feel drawn to empaths:
"Intuition is the filter through which they experience the world. Empaths are naturally giving, spiritually attuned, and good listeners. If you want heart, empaths have got it. Through thick and thin, theyre there for you, world-class nurturers. "
Most likely is a coincidence, but this is just my opinion, other people may disagree.
I understand that there is a great difference between both empaths and angelic beings, I merely used it to explain why I was so confused. Every time my grandmother called for guidance, she would ask for a sign that it was truly an angel talking to her, she would often meet a person with great aura with the name of who she was asking for help. So naturally, I found it quite surprising that this would happen. But yes, I understand there is a difference.
I wouldn't dismiss this so fast. Everyone has spirits guiding and guarding them, even the most Average Joe out there, has entire courts of passive helpers, ancestors, higher selves, etc.
So the idea that you and your sister are being watched over by the archangels Gabriel and Michael isn't that far-fetched or unique. Especially since such a link can be established simply by contacting them.
I'll check with them on your behalf to see if they are there, and then I would advise that you contact them.
Hi Agiel, I noticed that you say you and your clients who are empathic often pick up very many emotions from others which is not uncommon. And I am sure you already ground regularly, but I'm wondering what method you use to close off or protect yourself. There is a wonderful prayer I use by Barbara Brennan which is extremely effective. If you would like me to send it to you, please message me.
Lilac, I was quoting a person from the link i gave below, i am an empath and i do have ways of shielding my self, but i do not have clients.
There are simple ways you can use to protect yourself from absorbing energy.
The method i use to shield my self ( i rarely use it, only if i'm in crows or in places with a lot of negativity ) is this:
I try to " push " all my energy in to one place, normally my chest area, then i visualize it going to the outside ( visualize it's color, consistency etc.. ). Visualize it surrounding your whole body, like a bubble.
