Well, we all know who empaths are and how important they are for this utterly divided world.
But this article is for those who think that the word ‘Empath’ is a monolith. Nope, there are various kinds of empaths. All have a different shade or characteristic that makes them unique as well as important for the world in their own way. So, here we bring to you the five kinds of empaths:
1. Emotional Empath
These are the most common kinds of empaths. This is because they deal with the emotional excesses of the people around them. What they basically do is that if anyone around them is in some emotional turmoil, they will hear the person out. By listening to the emotional problems, they try to process emotions and understand emotions better. In this way, they try to solve the problems of people around them.
But this comes at a cost. The emotional problems of the people can almost overwhelm an empath. This might bring down the energy of the empath and might make them feel exhausted and gloomy. Thus, spiritual cleansing is excruciatingly important for these kinds of empaths.
2. Medical Empath
Explaining medical empath might be a little complex but we will try to do it in simple terms for you. The thing about medical empaths is that they can “feel” where you are feeling any pain or blockage or any form of disease. Thus, they are beyond the realm of emotions and into the realm of the body. Sometimes, medical empaths may get so deeply involved in the ailment of the other person that they might start showing symptoms themselves. Isn’t that weird?
But this is actually true. This is precisely the reason why medical empaths need to understand boundaries and maintain them. If you are a medical empath, learn to help people but from a ‘distance’.
3. Nature Empath
Nature empaths can feel the energy and vibrations of the natural world that is around us; the plants and the animals. They may even be able to tell about changes that are taking place in the earth like shift in plates or any sort of natural disasters.
Nature empaths live in close connection with the Mother Earth and receive all their energy and strength from Mother Earth. They can actually maintain balance and harmony in the natural world around them, merely by their presence.
4. Knowing Empath
They are also called claircognizant empaths. They are able to do two things: to feel and to clearly know. A claircognizant empath is able to know the feelings of the people around them almost instantaneously without making much effort. They are able to know people just by the first glance or even through their voice.
Sometimes they get so affected by people that they might even begin to imitate their actions. In this case, the claircognizant empath needs to learn the idea of boundaries and try to maintain them as much as possible.
5. Spiritual Empath
They can feel the world of spirits around them. They can communicate and deeply connect with the realm of spirits. They can also connect with the spirits of animals. They are even able to learn from the spirits who are at a higher level of knowledge.
The spiritual empaths can use their ability to help you talk to the spirits of your loved ones or even help a lost spirit in crossing over. Spiritual empaths can develop their power to a point where they can feel the present vibration of the soul and even the acme of the soul.
