Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Difficulty Being an Empath

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Darla, who’s hypersensitive, especially about spirit, and this has caused her lifelong anxiety and to become introverted.

The Council says when you’re an empath (which means you’re highly intuitive and feel things that other people are feeling and thinking), you’ve brought this gift into this lifetime to learn how to use it. By meditating and grounding yourself you’ll learn how you feel on a day-to-day basis.

You’re here to learn how to use this gift and how to recognize what is you and what is someone else’s feelings. Once you begin to do this you’ll feel a lot of relief and joy. When you’re able to tell the difference between your feelings and other people’s, and you are centered in your heart, you’ll feel more comfortable with this gift.

Darla says she’s struggled with how to protect herself from absorbing other people’s feelings and still remain true to herself. She says it’s difficult for her to figure out which emotions are hers and which emotions belong to other people.

The Council advises Darla to first learn to feel what her emotions are, and this comes with meditation, or sitting quietly and just going within her heart and asking to feel who she truly is. What’s her vibration like? Stay with that feeling and forget about other people while she does this. It takes focus to learn how to use this energy. Take your thoughts into your heart and ask to feel what you are feeling.

Darla asks The Council why she chose to be empathic during this lifetime. The Council says in a different lifetime Darla had a friend who was empathic, but Darla wasn’t able to understand how her friend felt. Because of her great love for this friend, Darla asked to be an empath in this lifetime so she could feel what it felt like, understand it, and learn to work with it.

The Council advises Darla to learn what her energy feels like. Once she learns that, the rest is easy. Once she’s aware of what she’s feeling, no matter where she is or how many people are around, this will give her a boundary. She can go into her heart and feel what she’s feeling. When she feels other feelings, she’ll know they’re not her feelings. The most important thing is to learn about herself.

  2. This is such a sweet story, I find it heartwarming that Darla’s soul wanted to understand her friend’s experience.

    I have a question for the council again! haha thankyou so much for answering all these questions, they give a really unique take on things.

    I’m currently having issues with my bestfriend named Dave, who I just confessed my love to and who’s sort of cold to me right now though I may be just imagining it. A close psychic friend of mine checked for me and it turns out that me and Dave have had a lot of lifetimes where we were family or romantically involved. So even if on a logical level I’m confused to why I’m so affected and concerned, in a spiritual level it makes sense. I’m learning a lot of lessons from how I’m handling all of this such as being more expressive and honest, and having a wider perspective with what’s possible.

    I guess what I’m really asking is why am I still not over it, am I missing another lesson ? Should I just be more patient ? I know he’s closed off to a lot people not just me so I shouldn’t take it personally but at the same time I’m disproportionately concerned ? I’m trying to put myself first and funnelling my energies to what I need right now, but I can’t seem to shake off the idea that he’s not being totally present in this world.

    much love! I’ve been taking all your advice and it’s been great -maria
