Do you want to know if your an empath?
I do believe I have figured out what it is I feel (using my clairsentience) if someone is an empath. Feel free to post a comment if you want me to try to get a read on if you are in fact an empath and any other info regarding abilities you are blessed with.
After creating this post back in 2009 and giving everyone the opportunity to find out from me if they are an empath I know there are still so many that question this and would like to know. Not just to know, but to know for sure whether they are or they are not.
It’s always hardest to evaluate your own self. I understand that. I have found that I don’t actually need to use my abilities to know whether someone is an empath because the experiences they have are very telling. Although I had the list of traits when I was trying to figure this out for myself I know I was still unsatisfied because I still felt I didn’t know for absolutely sure that I was an empath. I think the desperation to know comes from the tortured state you feel yourself in often. The suffering you do at the hands of what is going on with others energy. If you are suffering you at least want to know why you are sometimes suffering. It is not because we have weak boundaries. Only a non-empathic person would even suggest that because it is easy for them to do so when they are not walking in empath shoes and we know how people who have no clue on a subject like to give their two cents anyway.
I would say that if you are questioning if you are an empath it is not enough to have someone tell you the answer. What does that accomplish? What does that change? It is best to do some chakra work to clear yourself to see if the empathy comes to the surface strongly and then if it does start the process of becoming a controlled empath. The truth is that if you are suffering with your empathy but do nothing you will continue to suffer if all you do is have someone tell you whether you are an empath or not. Who would be okay with continuing to just suffer? The power in finding out if you are an empath is in being that person that values freedom to the point where they are willing to take steps to gain their freedom.
