The word empath has been thrown around recently, but what exactly does it mean? And are you one?
Empathic people are those that feel a lot. In a sense, they feel everything, not just their own feelings, but also others’ and their energies. All of us are more or less sensitive, but empaths are sensitive to such a degree, that it could be described as a superpower in its own right.
There are empaths that don’t only feel for others, but are also very much in tune with their intuition. If you’re curious to know whether you’re a highly intuitive empathy, there are numerous signs to prove that you are.
1. Dreaming about events before they happen
Have you ever had a detailed dream of an event that actually occurred? It might seem as pure coincidence, but it’s probably not. It’s most likely that what you’re experiencing is your intuition at work.
2. Having a feeling about a bad situation, and being right
We get a bad feeling in our gut sometimes, and we don’t trust it. But, if this keeps happening all the time, and you end up being right about the situation all along, then it’s very likely that you’re a highly intuitive empathy.
3. You just connect to some people
When you mix with other, you instinctively feel drawn to certain people and you sense things about them. Some may give out a bad vibe, but other attract you immediately.
4. You usually end up getting what you want
While most people are struggling to get anything done, you seem to be achieving your goals and dreams with great easiness.
5. You have to recharge- a lot
Spending time in big groups of people exhausts you, and this might be the reason why people may see you as anti-social. This, however, is not the case. You quite simply need some time to be alone and recuperate after being around so many emotions and energies.
6. You can predict how things work out before they happen
You can usually predict the outcome of a situation in your head, before it even plays out.
7. You know when someone’s full of it
You can judge whether a person is being honest without even knowing them.
8. Even a completely silent room seem noisy
You might be sitting in a room full of people, surrounded by complete silence, but you still feel as though it’s very loud. You can feel what people are feeling, and it becomes very overwhelming sometimes.
