4 Rare Powers Every Empath Has, Whether They Know It or Not!

Being able to lock into the emotional energy of people around you can be draining and upsetting, so it is no surprise empaths, at times, view their ability to apprehend the mental and emotional state of others as a curse.

This shouldn’t be the case though, as the almost psychic power to feel the emotional energy around you means empaths are equipped with skills most other people would long for and can become a powerful tool in dealing with life.

1. Reading people’s minds

In many ways empaths can be viewed as having psychic abilities. Most people read other’s behavior, body language, the tone of their voice in an attempt to find out what’s going on in their mind, but empaths take it further. They are able to access a world locked to most people where they can pick up psychic statements, images, smells and emotional indicators most are unaware of.

Some empaths do this unwillingly and try to ignore, or shut out this knowledge, but really they should embrace this deep connection they have established and try to increase the psychic link between your mind and the universe. How many situations have you been in where you wish you could read someone’s mind?

Knowing instinctively if someone is lying, hiding something or even dealing with deep struggles can save you a lot of time and heartache and can also be of benefit to them.

Stepping into someone else’s mind can be daunting, but it could also help properly communicate with that person and in many ways offer them help no-one else can.

2. Use your emotions as a super power

People can seem disconnected from their emotions, unable to understand or connect with their feelings, but for empaths it’s the complete opposite and this insight into the emotional state of others can at times feel like a burden they don’t want to manage.

Rather than run from it though, they should embrace this super power and try to use it to aid them in everyday life.

Empaths have always been in touch with their emotions and usually have a degree of self-empathy that allows them to listen to their own feelings. If they concentrate and hone these skills, it can change how they interact with those around you and make it easier to manage tough situations. When listening to others try to ignore what they initially say and instead read from their words what they mean.

Instinctively, empaths have a head start on this and should concentrate on using their skills to delve behind the front people put up and discover what’s really going on in their mind.

3. Turn the negative to a positive

One of the biggest downside of the constant emotional connection to the world, is the negative energy. Most empaths can be acutely affected, emotionally and physically, by negative emotions and feelings and this can put a strain on their own emotional state, impacting on their lives. Whether it’s a negative conversation or just someone feeling intense feelings, empaths can quickly become affected by this energy.

Empaths need to embrace this energy and instead of running from it, turn it into a positive. They are the only ones aware of their surroundings, so can be a powerful force in limiting its impact and creating a more welcoming and positive environment.

Whether it’s by meditating, changing the location or just giving a few comforting words and support in the right place, empaths can have a huge influence on the atmosphere around them using their abilities.

4. Put your skills to work

An empath can rarely switch their powers off, so why not put them to use in everyday life, like your career? We are always looking at the unique gifts we offer when it comes to choosing a profession, so why should empaths ignore the skills that come with being deeply connected to the emotional world?

Highly attuned to the smells and tastes around you? Why not become a perfumer or a chef? Able to tune into someone’s emotional state without too much probing? What about becoming a therapist or a counselor?

Or in the home, use your deep sense of empathy to create an oasis and peaceful retreat where you can relax and feel safe. Empaths are acutely aware of what can sooth and heal them after a trying day and being so sensitive to the environment around you can be the perfect skill to use when making a home.

Listen to your instincts when it comes to choosing where you live, the house you live in and even your lifestyle. Empaths know what will work for them and they shouldn’t ignore these instincts, because they are usually right.

I found this particularly interesting because I am an empath.

As a child and until I was in my late 30s I thought this was normal for everyone.

I have never seen it described so well as the above post explains it.

For me over the years being empathic as been a blessing, depressing and sometimes just fun.

For instance I never drink alcohol yet I can walk into a party, night club, bar or whatever and feel instantly tiddly and happy in drink, and therefore never feel totally sober when everyone else around me is laughing and dancing in drink.  I was once accused as being completely drunk myself one night when all I had been drinking was water and juice.

This article caught me and hit home because just recently, and I think it's been because I have been so ill, I had forgotten about picking up the emotions of people around me, and living with my Daughter that has just gone through leaving her husband, and two young women each having their own problems with jobs and boyfriends has been particularly hard on me.

I see now that forgetting the empathic side of myself I have been mirroring their emotions and taking them on as my own.  If one of the girls have become angry or upset I have become angry and upset.  As flaring up in anger, as I have been doing, is not my normal charactor I have also become depressed and angry with myself.  This last year has been an awful shocking negative year for me emotionally wise.

In my normal healthy state I can always recognise someone else's emotions as not being my own and completely separate them, but whilst I have been ill, I have not only been low because of that, but also because of taking on three other people's emotions as my own.

This article has now reminded me of this.

Oh wow I was about to post this myself as it hit home for me too Sandy!

I have had the opposite experience in the last few years, in that I have become so attuned to which emotions are mine and which ones are someone else's. It has been a refreshing experience for me and one that reminded me over and over how easy it is to take on someone's emotions if one is an empath.

Because it has been such an easy and habit forming way for me to live I can honestly say that now I know how to separate emotions, it has been a walk in the park for me. Not only that but it also has allowed me to finally live my life and not feel guilty or scared.

I now automatically do a check list of sorts when emotions do crop up and find it easy to distinguish between theirs and mine!

I was lucky as I recognised it in me as a child and for some reason because it was a natural sense to me I naturally could tell the difference between my own and others emotions.

I can't believe though that until my late 30s I thought it was a natural sense for everyone one.

It was quite strange how I found out.  I was on the cash desk in the cinema and chatting at the same time to a friend.  A chap walked in the door and straight up the stairs because he already had his ticket.  As he passed I said to my friend, "Wow! did you feel that chap as he went passed" (his emotions were screaming out) and my friends said, "what do you mean, 'feel'."  That of course started a long conversation which is where I was shocked to find that "feeling" isn't normal to everyone.

Oh yes I know exactly what you mean and I too have had this for as long as I can remember.

It sure came in handy during my nursing years and I've had many a special moment with a patient because of it.

It's great that you are such good friends Martha & Sandy, and are both empaths. From things I've read about empaths, they often isolate themselves and feel very lonely. It sounds like you two have a lot to teach others! 
I am not an empath. Although I easily read minds, I do not usually feel anything. Sometimes when people are being emotional, their thoughts more obvious, & harder to ignore. That's when I make a quick getaway  Wink
