People sometimes wonder if being an empath is a good thing or a bad thing. Of course, any psychic gift is good, but it is important for an empath to learn to protect themselves for their own good and the good of those in their lives.
Here are some of the behaviors that empaths have:
- Picking Up Energies
An empath is going to pick up the energies of things around them. This is normally the emotions that other people have. When someone is sad, the empath will likely be sad, and this goes with the other emotions as well.
You can’t do anything to stop these emotions from coming but if you are aware of them then you will learn how to deal with them.
Empaths have strong intuition. They have stronger intuition than other people. The empath will feel things in their physical being and this won’t just be something that is emotional. Talk to someone about what you are feeling and understand that this intuition is an extension of who you are.
- Easily Overwhelmed
One of the biggest downfalls to being an empath is that it is easy to get overwhelmed by all of the feelings that they pick up. If you find yourself around people a lot, you might need to take a lot of alone time to get your energies strong and to make sure that you are keeping yourself healthy.
- Broken People
Broken people tend to come to you, and they do this because they can pick up on your good energy. They know that an empath will be compassionate and caring, and this is often what they need.
When someone runs out of energy, the empath will be who they get their energy from, and the empath is put here to bring healing, but it can be tiring.
- Crowded Places
Crowded places can be hard for the empath. The empath will pick up on many energies when they are in a large room of people, and this can be overwhelming and tiring. It is important that an empath limits their time in large groups.
- Smaller Living
Some empaths will choose to live in places that have less population because they don’t want to always be overwhelmed by the energies around them. People drain them and in order to stay strong they need to have smaller living areas.
Empaths are known as people that are overly sensitive. They can feel and pick up the symptoms of people that are sick or tired or even that are dealing with things. Even watching sad movies can make an empath cry.
- Knowing Liars
Empaths are able to pick up when someone is being dishonest or when they are lying. They have a gift to be able to read people easily.
- Bringing Healing
The gift of the empath is to bring healing to others. They are compassionate and caring, and they are able to take their abilities and focus on other people to help them through their life.
- Forget Their Own Problems
Empath people often forget that they have their own problems because they are too busy dealing with the problems of everyone else. They want to heal everyone, and they forget that sometimes they need to have healing, too.
Empaths are able to look at their problems and they can handle their problems, as long as they choose to do that. Sometimes though, they choose to take care of everyone else’s’ problems instead and this can cause the empath to be sick in their mind, body, and soul.
There are different chakras in the body that can become blocked, and it is important that the empath use things to help keep their chakras strong such as stones, meditation, mindful thinking, positive affirmations, journaling and talking to someone that they trust.
