There are many different types “levels” and combinations of empaths. Below I’ve listed five that I myself have developed to some degree. There are many people in the world who are empathic by nature. In fact I believe every person is empathic to some degree or another. Its not some woo woo special gift. It a genetic code pure DNA that is passed onto generation to generation just as other DNA is passed on. It comes in varying degrees and true some folks may not inherit the ability or the full genetic load of the ability.
Most folks who realize they may be empathic normally do not acknowledge it until later in life. People who all of a sudden gain deep wisdom, become healers, animal communicators, readers, seers, or just people with a good sense of intuition. I was aware of my ability early on and because of it spent most of my time with empathic beings… mostly animals. Thus I have never been a good conversationalist. With animals there is no need for words. In communicating with animals people use words out of innate hard wiring of brain. Totally unnecessary, as animals will freely share and understand based on the feelings, visuals, and intuitive that mingles via “through one another”.
For many years I closed my self off to people as they are very rude (unintentionally), not knowing their feelings and thought energy is bombarding those who are more sensitive. Unaware that I know if they like me, or not, or if they believe what I’m saying or not, or if they are lying or keeping things from me. It’s really hard to open up to people and receive, because sometimes their energy sends messages that can taint how you feel about them. I work very hard to let those tainted images go, and to close off as much as I can when around people so that I’m not put into a place of knowing. Its not mind reading. I have no idea what thoughts are being formed in another persons head. I do though get visuals or a knowing that becomes attached to a certain context. Sometimes I become aware when someone else has a thought of me. No idea what they thought, but I become acutely aware of them and the mingling energy.
Until recent years I have not told anyone of this. As I wanted friends. Unless people truly understand empathy they get all defensive and worried that they are being spied upon. So it’s been such a lonely world.
When I find someone I know is empathic, normally they are unaware (most of the human population), if I try to approach them in an empathic manner they usually run. I get so excited when I finally get to talk to somebody who understands, but quickly get bored as the conversation is about being empathic, and not just simply communicating via empathy. I guess we are all lonely… those of us who chose to grasp our empathic abilities and dare to go public.
Living with empathy was a normal day to day lifestyle for me when growing up and was talked about as if just day to day life. I remember my grandmother would be in her kitchen baking when I’d come to visit her on the weekends and out of the blue she’d say “your Aunt Carroll is going to call”. Low and behold 15 minutes later Auntie Carroll called. My mother often would say “I wonder what your aunt or your grandmother is doing today?”, and within minutes which ever one she mentioned would call. They shared Telepathy all of their lives. I seem to have missed out on the Telepathy or I think some times just have not developed it. What I have is Intuitive, Intellectual, Animal, Seer, and Healer “levels” of Empathy. Since I live alone anyway, I’m leaning toward just diving deeper into the ability to see just where I can go with it.
Intuitive Empathy: is to sense or feel within ourselves, attitudes or emotions from others.
Intellectual Empathy: where you know what was meant to be said or what was not said in totality during conversation, as the words being used were not telling the complete story. The story regardless is clear.
Seer: the ability of seeing where emotion(s) come from, what is causing the emotion(s), while increasing feelings as to why, and resulting in confirmation. Receiving visions of a scenario.
Healing Empathy: body reading, where one can either sense or feel something that is not correct in the body. In some cases suggesting a person seek medical help, if not something that can be easily dealt with through hands on massage, emotional or physical cleansing, chiropractic, acupuncture or other non evasive forms of assisting the body to heal itself.
Animal Empathy: the gift of communicating with animals and understanding their needs. To understand what it is to be that particular animal.
Now to dive in and see how much juice (how loaded my DNA is) I really have beyond what some times complexes me already. I invite every reader of this note and my blog as I’m going to re-post this there as well to dig a little if you have not already. Check to see if you are allowing for your empathic nature to surface and if so to thrive and to bring a new kind of wisdom to your lives.
