Empathy Positively, Positivity for Empaths

A few words about empathy...

I often come across articles about
the suffering of empaths. They mention our sensitivity to the emotions
of others and frequently paint us as vulnerable. It may be true that
someone who is unaware of the origin of certain feelings or heartaches
may find his or herself at the mercy of waves of emotion or suffering.
However, like any kind of sensitivity, a bit of inquiry from within will
start to yield answers. Sooner or later, you may find networks like
one or come across just the right information in a book or on the

Empathy exists for a reason. It helps us relate to
others, it helps us understand what their words do not tell us. Empathy
helps you as much as the other people you encounter.

Empaths can adjust to their environment
learn how not to be in receive mode
all the time. You can learn
to choose with whom you would like to be open.

Empaths can know right away when they
encounter someone if that someone is suffering
in spite of the
smile they show. You might be more attentive, or just radiate love or
light to the person.

can perceive happiness as well as pain.
How excellent to
experience the emotions of true love, joy or enlightenment transferred
from another.

Empaths often have the ability to heal.
It’s mentioned less but often our ability to perceive the emotions of
others, and “take on their emotions as our own”, also involves relieving
the other person of some of their suffering. Once you become aware of
this, you can act accordingly. You can understand what is happening and
afterwards, discharge the excess emotion from your self.

course, understanding your empathy and discovering how you want to use
it in your life is completely up to you. The main thing to remember is
that empathy reminds us how connected we really are. Consider the
positive aspects, shield yourself and remember, just as we receive, we
also send out. An empath who feels the world is on his shoulders will
also send out his suffering.

The world is not on your shoulders, you just have the opportunity to
hear it's heartbeat. The more you heal from within, the more you start
to see the beauty of your gifts.

Thank you for your kind comments Rachel. Your experience radiating love to the woman is fantastic. Sometimes it seems difficult to believe it's as simple as that, but people do receive what we put out. Lovely story.

Re. radiating love and light to a person. This weekend is the first time I saw concrete evidence of that making a difference. I had to go to the ER, and the nurse was being impatient and expecting me to be really accurate. I was frustrated b/c I was there mostly because I couldn't think straight after an accident, and the doc had told me to go there, and I couldn't give her what she wanted. So maybe I was impatient too ;) Anyway, I could feel her attitude and thoughts, and I realised if I sent love to her, she would feel safe to be open with me. So I sent her love to her heart, and right away she got friendly and kind. Probably changed my perception too, but there was a noticeable change in her demeanor. Was very enlightening :)

Dear Love and Clarity Friend, that is a great thing you wrote :) Yes, I find being an empath helps me to live more deeply, to know the reasons behind actions, allows me to be more perceptive and then, with other skills and characteristics like, kindness and compassion, allows me to help others, and even know when I need more help myself. It's really a blessing. Living deeply is the best thing, I think. Thanks again for sharing from the wisdom you have gained. love, Rachel.
