Using Your Intuitive Gifts When You're An Empath
Merry Meet :))))) The other day I was out walking with a good friend of mine, who is also a gifted empath, and she was expressing her frustration with her gifts. Specifically, how all the intuitives that she knows seem to just see everything so easy, and while everyone keeps telling her how gifted she is, she can't see anything.
It made me realize something that I may not have gone over with you before. I know a lot of you are empaths so hopefully this will be really helpful. I mentioned in yesterday's article that the book Mindlight was a huge breakthrough for me in learning energy. Part of the reason for that was that the exercises taught me to "feel" energy. It was one of the first places that they weren't asking me to "see" it.
When you are an empath you are very sensitive to energy, however you are more sensitive to the emotions of people, animals, places etc. Now if you think about it, a lot of times when you pick up on those emotions we are feeling them in our solar plexus, our tum, our hands, and various other places throughout our body depending on what we are sensing. So therefore our strongest sense, is feeling. Not hearing, not sight, but what we actually feel. So when you know that, when you are doing things like sending energy, or trying to make a shield, rather than trying to see it in your mind's eye, the first skill you will want to master is actually sensing the energy. :)))) Make sense?
Now I'm not saying that you will never see, hear, smell, etc. :))))) Just that this will be your strongest sense and it's the one you want to master first. Once I understood that, my gifts of sight, hearing, and even smelling fell into line pretty quickly afterwords. It was almost like a block for me as I was so frustrated with everyone "seeing." I remembered seeing very clearly when I was little and sporadically but I couldn't figure out why I couldn't when I started working with my gifts formally. That was why. :))))))
I hope this helps!
Much Love and Many Blessings,
