What is a psychic empath?
A psychic empath is someone who has an extra strong ability to feel the emotions of others. This can be extended to include general feelings, energy, mental state and even the auras of others. It can be a little confusing and overwhelming for those who don’t realise they are an empath and don’t have control over their abilities. There are certain signs you can look out for if you think you might be an empath and you can find out more about them in our blog, 5 signs you might be an empath.
The power of an empath is great and is used wisely, can be of great benefit to others. There are different types of empaths, which one are you?
The most common type of empath is an emotional empath. Emotional empaths easily pick up on other people’s emotions, often feeling them as though they were their own. At first, emotional empaths can be unaware that the feelings they are experiencing are not their own. Feeling drained, sad and overwhelmed are common symptoms of emotional empaths, especially at first. Over time, you’ll be able to control your power and be able to filter out other people’s emotions, separating them from your own. Emotional empaths benefit from frequent spiritual cleansings.
Nature empaths are those who have an affinity for feeling the needs and vibrational signatures of the natural world. Rather than being strongly connected to people, they naturally feel deeply with the world around them. Nature empaths will be drawn to plants, the outdoors, animals and just generally nature. They are commonly hikers, gardeners, have pets and enjoy being outdoors. Nature empaths can feel when changes are occurring within the environment and can often predict the onset of natural disasters or inclement weather. Do you feel like you communicate on a spiritual level with plants and animals? If you naturally surround yourself with plants and animals and feel stronger connections to them than humans, you could be a nature empath. Once you develop your skills you can send healing and aligning energy into the world to bring about balance within the natural world.
A medical empath or a medical intuitive has the power to feel what is happening in other people’s bodies. Medical empaths have a spiritual awareness of other people’s pain and can often sense when something is wrong before it has been diagnosed. It’s not uncommon for medical empaths to take on some of the symptoms of those around them. More experienced medical empaths will have the skills to filter out these feelings but it’s always useful to have energy clearances to be on the safe side. If you often find yourself getting “sympathy pains” or sensing something is wrong with a friend or colleague you may be a medical empath.
A knowing empath can understand the thoughts of others without them verbalising it. Being a knowing empath means you have a combination of clear knowing and the skills of an emotional empath. If you often naturally tap into the thoughts of those around you or get a deep sense of understanding of someone just by hearing their voice or seeing their face, you may be a knowing empath. You may find your thoughts get muddled with other people’s. Knowing empaths should try to set clear boundaries in their minds so they’re not taking on too many thoughts.
Spiritual empaths can feel into the spiritual realm as well as being able to delve into the core essence of other people. If you can feel the presence of angels, spirit guides and people who have passed over, you may well be a spiritual empath. You will be able to sense things that are on a higher frequency and that others are not attuned to. A spiritual empath will quickly get onto the same wavelength of others and can even connect with people they have lost
