For Empaths – Whats Possible

By Annie Bush and Christel Broederlow

It’s possible and not unlikely for empaths to:

  • Feel the emotions [depression (including self-destructive feelings)*, anger, joy, elation, etc.] of another person in their bodies and know their origin
  • Feel the emotions [depression (including self-destructive feelings)*, anger, joy, elation, etc.] of another person in their bodies and realize they belong to another person, but not know the origin
  • Feel the emotions [depression, (including self-destructive feelings)*, anger, joy, elation, etc.] of another person in their bodies and believe the feelings are their own

*If you feel depressed or self-destructive, please consult your physician or mental   health practitioner.

  • Feel the physical pain, illness, and/or disease of another momentarily and/or exhibit their symptoms and know their origin
  • Feel the physical pain, illness, and/or disease of another momentarily and/or exhibit their symptoms and realize it belongs to another, but not know the origin
  • Feel the physical pain, illness, and/or disease of another momentarily and/or exhibit their symptoms and believe the feelings are their own
  • Feel the emotional traumas of another person and know their origin
    Feel the emotional traumas of another person and believe the traumas are their own
  • Feel the emotions of others in neighboring houses and know their origin
  • Feel the emotions of others in neighboring houses and realize they belong to another, but not know the origin
  • Feeling the emotions of others in neighboring houses and believe the feelings are their own
  • Feel the emotions of spirits and know their origin (medium capabilities)
  • Feel the emotions of spirits and realize the emotions are not their own but not know the origin
  • Feel the emotions of spirits and believe the feelings are their own
  • Be from mildly affected by the emotions of others, with little consequence, to intensely affected by the emotions of others to the point that they become physically exhausted, and/or physically pained
  • Be so intensely affected by the emotions of others that they seek relief in avoiding being in the presence of people (such as crowds) or individuals with intense feelings
  • Feel the emotions and/or traumas of the author of a written piece, such as e-mail, having to do with what is written and/or having to do with the author’s life in general
  • Be easily triggered emotionally by other people’s emotions or the media, such as TV, videos or movies, so that one’s past memory of a like circumstances is brought vividly to the surface
  • Be sensitive to the well-being and needs of animals
  • Be sensitive to nature, the earth and the environment and actively participate in their well-being
  • Touch anything of substance and sense/know the history of that item
  • Find their abilities are enhanced by physical touch or the act of focus (including trance, hypnosis or intentional focus on a person)
  • Self-medicate with drugs, alcohol, food or other substances to dull or numb out the effects of having empath abilities because of difficulty coping with a world that is most often unacknowledged and unaccepted
  • Be easily persuaded or influenced by another’s emotions including those in advertisement or political agendas
  • Be easily persuaded or influenced by someone who has understanding and control of emotions and the desire the manipulate the empath’s emotions
  • Be easily persuaded or influenced to do things that they ordinarily would not do
  • Consciously send positive or negative emotions to a person or a room of persons
  • Experience global emotions to tragedies/trauma in a profound manner yet not be an original participant of the tragedy or trauma
  • Experience pain, overwhelming emotion, or another’s death prior to an actual event occurring.  Pain and overwhelming emotion disperses the instant they occur.

**Being near by or distant to the source of all of the above may not be a factor in the sensitivity

  • Have difficulty with relationships due to others being uncomfortable with an empath’s abilities
  • Have difficulty maintaining a relationship with others due to not comprehending the empathic experience occurring
  • Have difficulty with relationships due to the empath’s knowing the hidden aspects of another’s behavior or character
  • Be sensitive to participating in groups (small or large) and/or speaking in public
  • Be sensitive to sources of electricity so that it affects their physical and mental health
  • Be sensitive to changes in weather so that it affects their physical and mental health
  • Be sensitive to sound so that it affects their physical and mental health
  • Be sensitive to man-made chemical substances in one’s environment so that it affects their physical and/or mental health
  • Likely to have other abilities such as telepathy, clairvoyance, clairaudience, or clairsentience to varying degrees

Because empaths are very likely to have telepathic abilities (the ability to send and receive information mind to mind), the following are possible and not unlikely:

  • Know the thoughts of another person or persons and know their origin
  • Know the thoughts of another person or persons and realize the thoughts are not their own, but not know the origin
  • Know and/or speak the thoughts of another person or persons and believe they are their own
  • Be pulled into/influenced by another person’s thoughts with little to no control to alter the circumstance—a form of mind control
  • Be pulled into/influenced by another person’s thoughts with an ability to detach from those thoughts
  • Send thoughts to another person for positive or negative effects, including manipulating their behavior in ways aligned or not aligned with their views, desires, morals or beliefs
  • Have the ability to move into another’s dreams, along with the ability to know and affect the contents of the dream
  • Be pulled into the dream of another without conscious choice to do so
  • Be affected by another’s inability to maintain focus (when one generally can) to the extent that one’s focus is lost
  • Find that the method in which they think (analytical, logical, intuitive) changes when they communicate with a person with a different method of thinking, thus aligning with that person
  • Find that they easily adopt or are influenced by philosophies of another even when in opposition to their original philosophy

**Being near by or distant to the source of all of the above may not be a factor in the sensitivity
