The Journey of an Empath

The Journey of an Empath

There are so many wonderful Empaths trying to find their way in this time of awakenings.   At this time, our focus begins with adult men and women ages 25 and above.  Soon to come, the focus will be on Empath children struggling because they lack family guidance, awareness and support to help them.

There are a few key things I wanted to share with you.  Regardless of how you might feel, you are absolutely not alone, too sensitive or crazy!  You are awake and chose a very unique path for yourself in this lifetime.   This means the sooner you stop the pain of resistance, the sooner you can move forward to advance on your path.

Along on this journey and to support you, there are many others.  Open up and find your family online or in a nearby group – find a friend who is an Empath – find your support!  You, along with Empaths as a collective, are here to shift perceptions and bring healing to the world.

Each individual on this path is guided in many ways. One key insight to guide you is your energetic response.  What does this mean? This means that, in any given situation, your best choice brings lightness to your energy.  Lightness is expansive and feels like an uplift of joy, happiness or excitement.  The opposite is anything that brings density (constriction) with uncertainty, fear, guilt, anger or resentment.  This insight is stated very simplistic for you today and, yes – there is more to it.

Those living normal lives will and won’t understand what is happening to you simply dependent on their experience and ability to be open. Please note, only those walking a similar path to you will able to fully understand this journey.  My wisdom share is for you to stop looking for validation from outside yourself and particularly from those who are asleep.

Additionally, this whole journey is not about asking or expecting the world to change for you! Instead, the journey about you – as an Empath that understands on a higher level many things others do not see at play in the world.  Contrary to what many believe, being an Empath is not about you being a martyr to heal others or being a wounded healer. We are done with those ideas and practices.  Being an Empath today is about you changing, shifting and transforming your self and your life!  This is done with intention, focus, compassion and higher knowledge.

I am writing this  to intentionally bring clarity about what is ahead for you.  There are five key pillars related to advancing your journeys as an Empath to the highest levels of soul consciousness.  These pillars apply to every single one of you regardless of where you are in this moment on your journey.   Your advancement is based on a spiral process of clearing, releasing and transcending density of lesser beliefs, emotions or perceptions.

The five key relevant pillars to advancing on your journey include:

Knowledge:  You must seek and embrace higher knowledge related to metaphysical principles of past life, soul contracts, soul wounds and more.

Awareness:  You must be aware of yourself and others as an observer.   The initiatives are to gain insights about YOU as monitor your thoughts, words, actions and feelings.  The ability to gather these insights about yourself and others will help you tremendously.

Energy Skills:  You must learn about energetic connections in the world and within yourself. Your awareness combined with energy skills helps you understand how you are affected by energy. You will learn tools and energy smarts related to yourself as an energetic being.

Intuitive Development:  You will be connecting to your guidance to understand the world in a new way.  You will learn to trust, love and embrace your inner knowing.

Self-Healing:  Your number one directive is to be courageous and step into self-healing. This involves transmuting and transcending the denser energies affecting you mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.  In this process, you will find balance and peace.

Please note that, in all ways and every single day, you are in earth school learning here; advancing and healing on your journey as an Empath.  The path forward is not simple or easy but, you are equipped.  Your biggest challenge is your own resistance to a shift in your identity and perception of reality!!  No worries – just, take heart and step forward!   You and other awake Empaths at this time are paving a unique path for others awakening after you.   Although this process of transformation is not simple, you will become a skilled and wise Empath connecting with higher energies and shining a beautiful light in this world.
