An empath is one who is highly aware of other people’s emotions, their positive and negative feelings, physical illness, mental pain, and intentions. It is common for an empath to feel the vibe of a room and feel overwhelming emotions in crowded areas because of the ability to absorb others’ emotions. Empathy is one of the traits of highly sensitive people.

However, psychic empathy is different from normal empathy. A psychic empath can easily detect how others feel without visual or verbal cues to that effect. Sometimes it may be simply by using intuition and other times by detecting energy fields or auras. This ability is a getaway to open up senses and seek guidance from angels or spirits.
There are different kinds of psychic empath ability and here are 5 of them that will help you better understand yourself.
1. Emotional Empathy
Emotional empathy helps you figure out one’s emotions easily. You can see through the deceptive mask and find out the truth. If you are a skilled empath, it is difficult for a person to pretend to love you while hating you deep inside. This psychic empath ability is a very common gift and useful to find out what exactly is going in your house or in a group of your friends.
Sometimes you may feel another person’s emotions so deeply as if it’s your own struggle, pain, or happiness. But the downside of this empath gift is that you may feel overwhelmed by taking on others’ energy consciously or unconsciously. You can prevent that by building emotional stability and having a stronger sense of yourself.
2. Place empathy
Place empaths are those who feel highly uncomfortable in some places while extremely happy in some locations. For example, you may have an attraction towards calm places and hate being in areas with lots of hustle and bustle. That may happen due to the presence of specific energy and emotion associated with a particular place and you can feel that more deeply than others.
People with this psychic empath ability can easily sense if a location is in your best interest or not. Place empathy is a rare gift that mostly goes unmentioned. Such empaths are found to help loved ones or lost souls cross over into heaven.
3. Intellectual empathy
This psychic empath gift allows you to get inside other person’s head and understand their thoughts, feelings, and ideas. It’s a great advantage when you are trying to grab the best deal, extract valuable information from your competitor, negotiate prices with your clients, and so on. This psychic empath ability to imaginatively put yourself in place of others is the strength of cognition power. It is completely opposite to being self-centered.
However, intellectual empathy is not similar to mind reading and there is nothing unethical about it. But, you can notice and speak what is most important or beneficial in any given situation. So, you may be helpful to other people who are worried or in low life state conditions. You may also talk like or duplicate the consciousness of people whom you admire. For example, you may talk fast and loud or change the language just like one of your close friends. Hence, intellectual empaths need to be in a high vibrational company. Else you may lose your own energy level.

4. Medical Empathy
Medical empathy is a common but lesser-known gift. If you are a medical empath you may feel worse when your loved one is sick and needs medical help. Even if your friends and family members are in a different country, you may take on their energy and replicate their symptoms without knowing their exact health issues.
