Empathic Ability: Part One — What is an Empath?
An Empath is a person who can tune in to the emotional experience of a person, place or animal. In the paranormal and in some works of science fiction and fantasy, highly developed empathy is a psychic ability to sense the emotions of others and often highly aware of the health and state of mind of their loved ones, no matter how physically near or far away the individuals may be.
It can be challenging for an Empath to function healthily in society if they are unaware that they have this sensitivity and often opt to be alone.
Empaths are born being just that. They’re born unskilled and are generally very understanding of others and their positions, and often times will ask questions rather than make snap judgments, or intuitively seem to ‘know’ there is more to a story than what meets the eye. They are sensitive to TV, videos, movies, news and broadcasts. Violence or emotional dramas depicting shocking scenes of physical or emotional pain inflicted on adults, children or animals can bring an empath easily to tears.
Empaths are people who don’t “read” the future, or predict it … they “read” and feel people, and their energy although sometimes it depends on the person being read, too. They’re often problem solvers, thinkers, and studier’s of many things. They are the psychic sponges of the world, soaking up all the psychic and emotional static that other people give off. Being an Empath is one of the most common and most challenging of all the psychic gifts.

Jennifer Aniston and John Travolta are Empaths. This is why they have the ability to truly convey emotions on screen. Be it that of anger or sympathy. John Travolta is a feeler, he takes on other people’s stuff? A sucker for a sob story. He has a busy mind, he thinks and thinks which brings up doubt and other issues and feels bad when he can’t help everyone.
