There is no doubt. There are things that make us sad. A TV show, something in the news, something we see online. But do we choose to stay there in that feeling? Because it is a choice to be sad or to pick yourself up and continue on. This month the Angels talk about what it’s like to be an empath and the necessity of it. I hope you find their words helpful. ~ Laura
This television program our channel watched made her cry. She feels so deeply the loss of the characters that even though she knows they are just characters on a show she still feels their loss. Many of you are this way. There is no shame in that even though you may have been made to feel that way by people, such as family, friends, or even coworkers telling you that you are too sensitive. Perhaps you have been concerned that employers would see you this way and judge you for it. There is no such thing as too sensitive. The problem is that the majority of humanity is not sensitive enough and are needing to reconnect with that feeling part of themselves. To release the empathic part of themselves.
Compassion, sympathy, and empathy are not synonyms for each other. There is a very fundamental difference between them. Even those who write the definitions do not seem to have an accurate grasp on the difference between these words. We wish you to understand that having any of these emotions is not a weakness but a strength! Having compassion leads you to have concern for others. Being able to sympathize with others leads you to further involvement in helping others with what they are going through. To empathize with others is to feel what others are experiencing. It is the ultimate in feeling not for others but to feel others pain, be it emotionally or physically. Feeling others emotional pain is just as painful as feeling others physical pain and we tell you it is not easy for those who have chosen to help humanity through empathy. It can be very painful to be an Empath.
Star Trek had an official position for an Empath, the ship counselor Deanna Troi. The original Star Trek had a character in one episode that could touch another person and heal them of injury and illness. The injury or illness would pass through her first and then she would clear it out of her body. That episode is actually called “The Empath”! There are many more examples of this concept of Empaths such as these that are divinely inspired by us to help those that are Empaths to remember who they are and why they chose to have this sensitivity, to connect with it, and to inspire them to use it as they intended when they were planning to come help humanity. The Empaths that chose to incarnate with this ability have done so with a mission to accomplish.
No longer must you listen to others who do not understand this telling you that you are too sensitive, as if it is a fault instead of a gift. There are ways to keep the energy running through you and bubbles of protection that can keep malicious energy hunters out of your space. These things we are teaching so that you can be the full person that you came here to be and to complete the mission that you came to execute. It can be very painful emotionally or physically for an Empath to experience the world in the way that they do; that is why it is so important to remember all the tools in your toolbox that you brought with you on this incarnation. We are here to remind you of all the tools available to you that you brought with you to complete your mission here.
We are always here and await your call.
