It seems like the word empathy(y) has become all the rage these days. But, do you know its real meaning? Are you one of the people classified as such?
Empathy is defined as an ability to read and fully understand others as well as to be in-tune with them. In some cases it is voluntary, but sometimes it can be involuntary, particularly for a person who is a natural empath.
Empaths are extremely sensitive people and are often considerate, compassionate, and full of understanding for others. They possess the natural ability to feel what someone else is going through. Interestingly, most natural empathy are not aware of how this works.
The simply feel everything, whether it is others` emotions or energies. Their sensitivity goes to such a degree that it could be described as a superpower. Most importantly, they are highly intuitive, too!
If you are curious to see whether you or someone close is an intuitive empath, read on! Here are a few signs to prove whether you are or not:
1. Dreaming about events before they happen
Have you ever had a dream about events which actually did happen? While this seems like a coincidence, the chances are what you are experiencing is actually nothing but your intuition.
2. Having a feeling about a bad situation, and being right
Having a bad feeling about something or someone is completely normal. However, if it keeps happening and you end up being right about it, it is very likely that it is your intuition at work.
3. You just connect to some people
Humans are social beings who cannot live on their own. When we socialize with others, we instinctively read them and feel drawn to some of them. Some people give out bad vibes, but other attracts you instantly!
4. You usually end up getting what you want
While others are having difficulties getting what they want, you seem to be fulfilling your goals and realizing your dreams easily.
5. Even a completely silent room seem noisy
You are sitting in a silent room full of people, but it feels like sounds of certain pitches are present. Rings a bell? You are capable of feeling others` feelings, so this becomes too overwhelming sometimes.
6. You know when someone’s full of it
You have the ability to judge whether a person is being honest or not without even knowing them well.
7. You can predict how things work out before they happen
You are capable of predicting the outcome of a certain situation, way before it actually happens.
8. You have to recharge- a lot
Last but not least, you are seen as anti-social as you prefer spending time alone. This doesn’t mean that you don’t like being surrounded by people, rather that you need time to recharge after dealing with so many emotions and energies.
