Do You Consider Your Empathy a Gift?
You enter a room and with just a swift glance around, you pick up the vibrations of one or more people that need your brand of solace, support and energy. A great many envy you this gift, but you find it more of a burden than a blessing. You are an empath who is still to master the path of empathy.
It is not a lonely road. All great teachers of enlightenment, sages and masters were and are empaths. All of us, without exception, are or will develop empathic abilities as we continue on our conscious journey. However, many find these abilities a challenge and a distraction in remaining centred.
Understanding Is a Great Healer
Janice* had felt a creeping discomfort for some time, a few years really. She would find herself hyperventilating, so overcome by fear that she would be almost paralyzed and unable to speak. She would have totally irrational, fearful thoughts that she had never had before. She would gorge on food to keep the fear at bay. She didn’t want to live in her home, she didn’t want to step out into the world. Her family was stumped and the psychiatrist seemed to be the only option.
Listening to her innate wisdom despite her distress, she went to a practitioner who told her she was a highly sensitive empath. It was a turning point that would unveil many beautiful, fascinating and fulfilling insights that caused her inner being to become even more compassionate and loving. She began to use the same abilities that had caused such havoc within her to reach out to others and give them words of inspiration or a healing touch. She says she is still in the process of mastering balance and centredness amidst the whirlpool of emotions and thoughts, but her journey is now rewarding beyond measure and she looks forward to each day with enthusiasm.
A Gift of Great Value Takes Great Nurturing
It wasn’t all smooth sailing for her from day one. Nor is it for anyone who doesn’t understand this gift with a great deal of clarity. Yet its nature and potential for expansion is so immense that few hesitate to embrace it fully if they know how.
There are many that try to cut off this ability within them because they don’t know its staggering value and the rush of fear-based emotions they experience on a moment-to-moment basis throughout the day are too overwhelming to be comfortable. Many empathic people end up retreating from society, from being around people, from dealing with situations because the emotions of everyone involved in them are too difficult to cope with. Some take to alcohol and drugs to bury their hypersensitive nature. They feel attacked and can fall into extreme paranoia. The most frightening aspect for them is the inability to explain what’s going on with them.
It is a Fantastic Rewarding Journey
To reject and deny such an ability is to sabotage your conscious journey. In a short while, Julius will be giving an amazing teaching to help us to get into a space where we will be truly pleased to be empathic. This advanced course is about learning how to manoeuvre in this state of being, it is about discovering how to be in tune with energy fields, the thought fields, the emotional fields that leads to mastery, fulfilment and joy.
Empathy is not a minefield but a fabulous run of the home stretch that brings to you your knowing of the Oneness of all and who you are. It can well be the alchemical gift that transforms all to joy!
