Spirit Food: Understanding Empaths
Empaths are gifts from the creator. We were sent to this world to remind everyone of their humanity. In a world that is neglectful of the beauty that lies beneath the greed, selfishness, and disharmony, we are the soldiers of truth and divine love. There are people who walk around comfortably numb in their environments. It's usually not until they are in the presence of a divinely touched empath that they are reminded how to feel and are shown the way back to their true selves. We are the eyes that helps the world see through the perspective of the Divine.
Most people think we are overly sensitive, and tend to write us off because we can feel so deeply. We are a people that can look at anything with extreme wonder, and become overwhelmed with gratitude when we observe what ever moves us. Empaths tend to see with their hearts and not with their logic. This usually makes us outsiders, as everyone else has been trained to overlook the simplicity of life. We tend to treasure it. People mock us because we are different. However we are exactly what the world needs. We can bring vitality to every task we set out to accomplish, even the most mundane. Our spirits are free and wild. On the contrary, it's not all glitter and gold. It can also be discouraging and isolating. We are usually scattered, and have to encounter many people that aren't understanding of our gifts. Even though we are the nurturers of the world, often times we are left to nurture ourselves. We seek out love from others, but those whom aren't gifted will never reciprocate it enough for us to remain replenished. Empaths usually have to go through many people who are completely insensitive to our abilities before we can find our tribe. This path we walk, we do it humbly. As many times we are broken by what we experience, and absorb from others. Empaths are sponges and can sense the energy frequencies of others without an exchange of words. We transmute energy like a crystal, and most times we can become unbalanced just by being in a room of people with a variety of energy signatures. Our gift to the world is to ground the Earth's energy and it's inhabitants.
“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same time with the worst horrors” - Andrew Boyd
If you are an empath, always remember to rejuvenate and restore your aura. You must find ways to ground your energy. You can do so with self care such as: epsom salt baths, wearing protective natural jewelry, sitting out in nature, and finding time to meditate. If you are not an empath, but you are loved by one, please treat them with care. Try to understand them if they are willing to be vulnerable to you. Usually receiving empathy is all they want to feel anyways. Don't treat them with contempt if they try to express their emotional state of being. The worst thing you can do to an empath, is tell them their feelings don't matter. Because in our world, all we can do is feel. I wish you all infinite love and wisdom to guide you through your path.
Love and Light,
