You either are or you aren’t and empathic person. Yes, all people alive have the basic ability to feel empathy. Many can, over time and with constant training, learn to become more intuitive and more capable of reading then feeling the emotions that people around them are experiencing at that moment.
Then there are people who can actually feel at any given moment what others around them are feeling. This is random and not always accurate. But it still happens. It can be very uncomfortable. Especially to younger people who don’t understand what is happening. Many choose to learn to ignore it. They grow up always having it, but never letting it become a part of them. They instead suffer from the side effects of not managing this gift properly. Side effects include emotional and physical sickness which is a part of their lives. They never really know why, but they get sick a lot. They never know why, but they are emotionally hurting a lot.
This section of LDS Empath is dedicated to helping you to figure out what is going on. Are you an Empath? Or are you a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)? There are many in the world today who are confusing the two. Thinking they are an Empath when they are really an HSP. I have both kinds of people in my life. Both are very much needed in this world to help bring more light into this world. Where there is light, darkness is not.
As I find out more about becoming a higher functioning Empath, I will continue to post.
I hope this information will help you as you apply it to your life. May God bless you in your efforts to become a more capable, stable and higher functioning Empath.
Till the next post,
Light and Love
