Dear Empath, We Need You

Dear Empath, we need you.

To those who soak up the world’s energy like a sponge. You have a crucial role to play.

Dear Empath, We Need You

You are the one who feels too deep, always observant about the people around you; profoundly sensitive about their needs. You, yourself are an enormously enigmatic being, far too immersed to reach, at least in this lifetime.

The role assigned to you, in life’s drama is the most significant one. It is to be the messenger of love and compassion.

You are one angel in disguise.

You are one of the strong ones.

You are one of the believers in magic. You dance in the shadows to bring life to the light filtering from the chinks others fail to notice.

Without you, chaos is sure to ensue.

Sometimes you play the role of match-striker, sparking the fire that chars the dust flakes that have suspended itself on the shell.

Know that the work you do, in igniting the flames of kindness, is the most divine thing to do. Rather, it is remarkable. It signifies your immense potential to go deeper into the core of other’s souls to lighten the darkness they have concealed for years.

We all wear armors of lies of who-we-need-to-be and what-we-need-to-prove. You are often the sole being who sees the snags in other’s feelings, however minuscule. That’s how you rip and pull and prod until the whole web, the false exterior, comes undone before the x-ray eyes of the empath.

This is an immensely difficult job. This is the task of a fighter, a wolf, a truth-seeking ninja who will stop at nothing.

By most conventional societal standards, you are, without a doubt, the underdog. You receive none of the glory that you deserve.

People fail to acknowledge the positive vibes you spread. They may not realize until years later it was you that so gently removed the shambled cloak they lay sleeping beneath. This was only to fill their lives with the fresh air they need.

They may never comprehend the depths of your mission, the gift that you have so selflessly bestowed upon them.

You see, most people don’t notice the things you see and feel with clarity. Most others live in oblivion of the felt sense that simmers throughout your entire body, down to the root, remaining hidden by the tangibility society places on a pedestal.

For the survival of your empathetic soul, you must understand that these others exist on a different plane of being altogether. Not a lesser-than plane, nor in a higher state, but just in a different place.

Other people cannot comprehend how draining it is to feel such depth of emotions; how laborious a task it is to carry an ocean of pain, gathered from others.

The sensitivity of your feelers is not limited by physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual constraints. No technological barriers can prevent you from imbibing the energy of others.

You can try as hard as you like to put up invisible shielded boundaries.

No matter your mechanisms to prevent the absorption of the energy around you, it is time for you, braveheart, to relent, and recognize that this is your gift.

You may never have the thick skin they will forever tell you to grow, but you wouldn’t have it any other way. Because with your power comes the ability to touch a child’s hand, you see the spring in his step amplify, and you know you have made him all the stronger, even if for only a moment.

And these small moments, of lifting others by sharing their afflictions, expand, one drop at a time, until the ripples of a creek fight through the hard, drought-ridden cracks. And then, one day, the trickle accumulates and grows so magnanimous that it brims through the kind laced eyes and overflows. You are feeling, merging into one, with the suffering around you.

  1. It makes me feel so much better knowing that this is a real thing and not only in my head. I know who i am and what my gift is… and even if sometimes i think it’s unfair and i want it to stop, i still wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂

  2. This is the biggest truth:

    "No matter your mechanisms to prevent the absorption of the energy around you, it is time for you, brave heart, to relent, and recognize that this is your gift."

    When I internet was a new thing, I was 14, and unaware of my gifts, except for "I can know how others feel" and "I have premonitions sometimes" and discovered that through chats "feel like the other" was also happening. I remember a few times, knowing from intuition that a friend was going through a bad time, and I even asked to please not to feel it. Upon that friend saying his/her first "hi" I would already feel it, and I was like, "Oh, come on!" Nope… no shield can block it, even though, as an adult and grown up psychic medium, I can shield all out, and does not hit my core… but more of a claircognanze of knowing whats going on, but knowing is blocked.

  3. I can relate to some of this….I do tend to suffer as M Bowman mentioned…very nicely written…some of the comments could be politer

  4. Great articles and motivating, but kind of hypocritical that the page took 5 minutes to load on my 50 meg internet connection, because it is loaded with ads, pop ups and some of the ads are propaganda for HILARY who promotes MONSANTO and poisons in our food and water. Seems more than a bit hypocritical, this page bleeds capitalism and the GREED virus.

  5. This article touched my heart in very deep and sacred ways. It cannot be stressed enough how different we empaths are from all other people, even sensitives and psychics. We are one very special tribe indeed. And though I don't believe absorption of energies is necessary, it is certainly a stage all empaths go though, until empowerment and clarity, coupled with patience and a loving heart, gives way to refined clairsentience.

  6. In reply to Steven B. Perhaps you need to do some research yourself. My truth is that once an Empath creates a healthy energetic boundary and is able to discern what is their stuff and what is not. They then can detach emotionally but are still able to read that energy. We learn to release other's energy, which in-turn releases the anxiety and depression. 🙂

  7. The most profound and heartfelt article I have read for Empath's. Inspirational and empowering. Much gratitude to you…

  8. Nice fluff, but maybe could you do some research rather than posting what you believe? If you don't know how to be anything other than an artist, work on that. It's for others to say you're an artist anyway. The fact is, people that are deeply empathic suffer from depression and anxiety as a result. The world doesn't need them to be Atlas for us. It's not even a fair thing to ask.
