Are You An Intuitive Empath?


Are you one of those people who are “sensitive”?  Did you grow up with a parent telling you that you are too “sensitive”?  Did (or do you) have emotions that are overwhelming, to the point that is sometimes incapacitating?  Well, I did.  I am a “sensitive”.  I grew up feeling emotions that I didn’t understand and didn’t want.  The overwhelming emotions were predominantly negative – fear, frustration, sometimes anger because my mother was a fearful person.  My mother would tell me all the time that I was too sensitive.  My mother even went as far as punish me when I cried, telling me that it was not “good” to cry.  And I would be left wondering, “What is wrong with me?” What I didn’t know was that for the most part, these emotions I was feeling were not my own.  I was actually picking up on (mainly negative) emotions that the people around me were experiencing.  Eventually I learned that my mother was incorrect and have learned to use my sensitivity to make my life and other peoples lives better.

So what is an Intuitive Empath?  Intuitive Empaths just happen to have a higher level of intuition and the ability to sense subtle energies than most people.    Everyone is born with intuition, just as everyone is born with the 5 physical senses; to see, taste, hear, touch,  smell.  Also most people have physical abilities such as running, swimming, and cognitive abilities such as speech, reasoning, etc. But in the same way that some people are naturally better at some things than other people are, and Intuitive Empaths are more sensitive than most people are.

Here’s an example:  I can swim pretty well, but I will never be an Olympic swimmer.  If we rank Michael Phelps’ swimming ability at a “10”, relatively speaking my swimming ability would be around a “3”.  With training and a lot of practice, I may be able to raise my swimming ability to a 4 or 5.  But even if I trained for 8 hours every day, I think I can safely say that I will never be on the same level in the swimming pool as Michael when it comes to swimming.  Let’s face it, physically he is a fish and I am not.

The same analogy applies to Intuition and Empathic Ability.  If you rank the average Intuitive Empath’s sensitivity as “8-10”, the average human would probably be around a “2-3”.  Just as in swimming, a person can increase their intuitive ability with training and practice.  And I can safely say that even with 8 hours of training a day, a normal person will probably never get to Michael Phelps ability level, or any other Olympic swimmer. My guess is that even without training, Michael Phelps started as an “8-9”.

And just as there are varying levels of physical ability among Olympic swimmers, there are varying levels of ability among Intuitive Empaths.  On a scale of 1 to 10, people who are rank 8-10 are considered Intuitive Empaths. I know some people who are so sensitive, they would be ranked above a 10 on the scale.  There is a downside to this level of sensitivity.  These people are so sensitive that they find it almost impossible to shut out the random energies around them that everyone encounters on a daily basis.  People who have this level of sensitivity have difficulty functioning in day-to-day living, and are usually diagnosed with some type of mental illness such as schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder or even psychosis, and end up being put on heavy duty pharmaceutical drugs by a medical practitioner who has no clue.  The Intuitive Empaths that buy into the existing paradigm are doomed to live out their days in a drug-induced haze, not able to feel happy or sad but resigned to an unending gray haze for the rest of their lives.  Even worse are the ones who managed to adapt, but do so with coping mechanisms that are self-destructive or extreme such as alcoholism or Disassociative Identity Disorder.  Fortunately, it is possible to break out of the paradigm, but it takes effort, training and discipline.  The first step one must take is to accept that being an Intuitive Empath is a gift, and it takes time to learn to develop and control the abilities.  The pay off comes when an Intuitive Empaths become exceptional manifesters, skilled leaders, healers, channels, and teachers who are here to act as wayshowers and guides during this time of transition on the Planet. Make no mistake about it, Intuitive Empaths are wired to function at a much higher level than 99.9% of the people on this Planet.

If you are one of those people who others say are too sensitive, rest assured that most people really don’t know what they are talking about because you have to be an Intuitive Empath to know what it’s like.  Know that as an Intuitive Empath, your sensitivity is a gift that you can use to manifest powerfully.  You can learn to sense subtle energy and follow the highest flows. You abilities can help guide you through the ups and downs of your life in an empowering way.  You can also learn to become transparent to energies that do not resonate with you. The main thing you want to do is learn how to use your sensitivity to guide yourself into the state that Abraham calls Alignment with your Inner Being.  It is when you are in Alignment that you fully tap into our Power to  Create.  Your sensitivity merely means that you are acutely aware of when you are in Alignment, and when you are not in Alignment.  This ability gives you a huge edge  over “normal” people.  You have the Key:  Move towards what puts you into Alignment, and move away from what takes you out of Alignment.
