Dear Empath, Why The World Needs You


Empaths are the some of the most generous, big-hearted and understanding people in the world today.  They are easy to talk to, have hunches that are normally right and intuition is their best friend.

They are natural healers with their ability to scan and read the energy of the people, places and objects, whether they are aware of this ability or not.  For this reason, they make fantastic counsellors.

Empaths have a natural respect for other people, animals and the planet we live on.  They naturally understand that we are connected to one another, as they feel and process the energy of others around them.

I believe that empathy is the most essential quality of civilisation – Robert Edbert.

Many Empaths Have A Vivid Imagination. They Are Highly Creative And Intuitive Beings.

Empath´s are amazing people.

Yet the No. 1 gift of an Empath is….. empathy.  Their ability to empathise with other people and the world at large.

Empathy is emotional intelligence. It is the ability to step into someone else’s shoes, to view the world through another’s eyes.  To be able to perceive the feelings and emotions of another and convey that understanding to the other person.

Empathy is the vehicle through which we express our love and acceptance, kindness and compassion to others around us.  The use of empathy to convey love and acceptance, kindness and compassion is the key to removing all barriers and walls we build up between ourselves.

Which is why the world needs more Empaths.

We only have to look at the world today to see that most problems come from a lack of understanding, acceptance, kindness and compassion.

Even the big problems in the world.

A lack of empathy for each other might just be the driving force behind the destruction of our planet. Unless we grow up as human beings and develop emotional intelligence.

Empaths Do Have This Essential Gift.  This Essential Gift That Just Might Change The World.

1. Yet many Empaths struggle to control this gift as they are open to the energy around them.  The good, the bad and the ugly.

2. Many Empaths would love nothing more than to stop feeling and empathising but this won´t help the world.

3. The world needs you to continue to be able to empathise without taking on the weight of the world on your shoulders.

4. The world needs you to develop your boundaries and healthy ways of being so that you are not continually swamped, manipulated and overrun by other people.

5. The world needs you to take really good care of yourself and to protect your space so you can use your many gifts.

6. The world needs you to learn how to say No when you need to and that you are not responsible for every single person on this planet.

7. Empaths with boundaries still have the ability to empathise.  The only difference is – they protect and care for themselves.

8. The world needs you to be happy, dear Empath.  So you can use your gifts to help us all.
