As one’s spiritual body begins to awaken, so does one’s psychic senses. And right now there’s spiritual awakening going on all over the place! It’s like people are waking up from a comatose state and looking at the world with new eyes.
They feel different, their perspective is changing…they are changing.
While this is super cool in some regards, in others it’s just plain confusing. Why do I feel so different? Why do I want different things? Why do I want to make a change?
Especially when you are a newly awakened Empath…
You might be wondering, what is an Empath? An empath is someone who as the natural ability to utilize one of the psychic senses, also known as clairsentience.
It refers to form of extrasensory perception where a person can “read” the energy around them and acquires psychic knowledge primarily by means of emphatic feelings and emotions.
In other words, not only can you “read” energy, you can “feel” what is going on with another person emotionally.
Only here’s the interesting thing. Most people who are Empaths don’t even know they are an Empath! Whoa…
That can cause a whole different set of problems. People who never thought of themselves as having any psychic ability in the past are now experiencing different things with their psychic senses. And many times they don’t know what’s happening. As an empath, you feel what people around you feel. When you experience other people’s emotions, your mind and body can get overwhelmed and confused. These mixed signals can leave you feeling overwhelmed and unsettled. Your mind is telling you to have a reaction to something, but you’re not sure what you’re reacting to. So how do you know if you’re an Empath? Well here are six common signs…
SIX SIGNS YOU'RE AN EMPATH
1) Do you feel “overwhelmed” when going to a place filled with a lot of people?
Do you feel overwhelmed when going to a mall, a sporting event, or Wal-Mart? Somewhere where there might be a lot of people? You want to go, but when you get there you feel anxious, unsettled, or “very off” but you don’t know why? It does not always have to be a public place. It could be to someone’s house party, a baby shower, a wedding, or Thanksgiving dinner, anywhere where you are around a lot of people. It is not uncommon for an empath to have an anxiety disorder. Why does this happen? Because empaths pick up on a flood of emotions from everybody all at one time!
2) Can you always tell when someone is lying to you?
Have you always been able to tell when someone is telling the truth or lying to you? Even if they do it flawlessly, it is something you just “know” or “feel”. Or can you feel if someone is being deceptive? Even when you have no reason not to believe them? You will usually know the answer to this right away.
3) Do you have random emotions or mood swings, especially when in someone else’s presence or when you think about them, which makes no sense to you.
Do you ever have random emotions or mood swings, which do not follow a thought? In fact, in some instances you find that you are not thinking of anything in particular at all, yet, your body is reacting emotionally? If your emotions do not seem to be following a thought that coincides with that particular emotion, you are most likely picking up on someone else’s feelings, feelings which are not your own.
4) Can you feel someone else’s physical ailments?
Do you ever feel sick, or experience a pain, which makes no sense to you at all? Only to find out later that it coincided with a symptom that a friend or family member was experiencing? Maybe you were feeling nauseous and found out later someone close to you had the flu, or you had a stomach cramp and found out they had appendicitis.
5) Do you instinctively know what someone needs to feel better emotionally or physically?
Can you predict or instinctively know what someone else needs to feel better, even when they do not quite know what they need themselves? Do you know what someone is thinking or trying to say, especially when they are not expressing themselves clearly? Do you know what point they are trying to get across, even when they are having trouble expressing themselves?
6) Do you feel emotionally or physically drained after being around an individual or a group of people to the point of feeling physically not well?
When you are around an individual or a group of people, afterwards do you ever find yourself feeling any of these things:
- Light Headed
- Out of Body
- Low Blood Sugar Feeling (when full)
These feelings are not experienced prior to, but only after having been around people. Usually taking a couple of hours to feel “normal” again. If you experience three or more of these things after being around a certain individual or a group of people, consistently, it is a pretty good indicator that you are an empath.
Now these are 6 clear indicators of being an empath. If you are an empath, there will be no doubt in your mind after reading these signs. You will not be thinking, “I could be, I have some of them, but I am not sure”, or “Well…I have experienced that before.” You will have an “aha” moment of, “It all makes sense now!” It is something that you will know immediately to the core of your being.
