On Being An Empath

by George DeLong,
Contributing Writer,

Please understand that I can only speak for myself and my personal experiences. The only reason I am writing this is to clarify some points that other writers missed since they gather their information from research rather than from experience. I feel this clarification to be essential so that Lightworkers do not become confused and/or mislead.

Much love for your kind donation,

In attempting to define an empath I turned to the word “empathy,” which Webster’s defines most accurately:

1: the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner; also: the capacity for this.

2: the imaginative projection of a subjective state into an object so that the object appears to be infused with it.

The first definition can almost define how I experience this ability but needs further elaboration. The second definition blew me away. This is exactly the method I employ to charge amulets, talismans, and crystals!

Pulling the first definition apart, I would say yes, being understanding and sensitive to another is a given. It is within the very nature of all beings in 5D consciousness and above. However, vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experiences of another without having them being fully and explicitly communicated, makes it seem like this is an involuntary response, but this only holds true to a limited extent.

Detachment is my shield, so when someone responds to me negatively, I don’t feel it. I see they are coming from an ego space, and having been there at one point in my life, I can readily see myself in them, therefore I don’t get sucked in. However, if the person that sends me negative energy is close to me, it becomes an extremely painful experience, almost physical in nature, like someone punched me in the solar plexus. This, of course, is the result of my being attached to that person and being open to them. Unfortunately, it is not always that easy to differentiate between my feelings and that of another. Anger being sent to me feels like I am the sender rather than the recipient. This is why it is so very important to know yourself, it’s the only way to make a distinction between the sender and the receiver.

The feelings I receive are in the way of thoughtforms and they are indeed thoughts that have taken a form or shape, some being quite ugly in appearance. Shamans that can see and remove these forms often refer to them as “Demons.” On the plus side, when someone sends me love, I can definitely feel it, especially when I am in communication with that person. Otherwise, I am not always able to discern who the sender is.

Three excellent books on this subject that I would recommend are:

Man, Visible and Invisible (Theosophical Heritage Classics)ir?t=0bcp11wh33 20&l=am2&o=1&a=0835603113 with 26 accurate color plates;

Thought Powerir?t=0bcp11wh33 20&l=am2&o=1&a=1585092479, who, like Leadbeater, was great Theosophist,

and What your aura tells meir?t=0bcp11wh33 20&l=am2&o=1&a=0385079699.

These are older books and I refer them to you because they were written before negative forces began influencing writers and channels with false information.

I don’t read minds, I sense energies. When someone is not being truthful with me I know it. When one is fearful I feel it. Here is an excerpt from my book “Awakening to Your Dreamsir?t=0bcp11wh33 20&l=am2&o=1&a=B009JW2BRU“:

“Telepathy is mental receptivity to another’s thoughts. Some mistakenly believe it is the ability to directly read minds. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is actually an ability to occasionally sense what another is thinking and translate those thoughts into words. To sense what another is feeling is called clairsentience. We are all more telepathic and clairsentient than we realize. Once, when I was explaining dreams before a group, my former mother-in-law happened to be present. A Jungian analyst, who had recently earned her doctorate from Stanford, was thinking some unkindly thoughts about me. As I was explaining dreams to the small audience, her thoughts almost knocked me to the floor. “Who was I,” she thought, “to be encroaching on a subject reserved for experts like her?” That, of course, is my translation since I felt her thoughts rather than read them, giving me a terribly uncomfortable sensation. During my talk, she remained quiet and reserved, but beneath her smiling countenance, a seething volcano was erupting.

Another experience occurred as I was returning from the theater with my companion. I made a joke which she thought was quite funny and when we returned home, she immediately shared the joke with her roommate. Although her roommate sat quietly and said nothing, I could feel her about to explode. I wanted to quiet my girlfriend, but by then it was already too late. The very next moment her roommate, who had interpreted the joke as being sexist, flew into a rage.

While completing my studies in Southern California, I often frequented a coffee shop where I would go over my notes. This time a friend was helping me, quizzing me in preparation for a forthcoming test. While seated at the counter, I began to feel a strange and discordant energy directed to us. It came from a man seated next to my friend. I watched as he stared sullenly into his coffee cup, and then, without warning, he angrily snapped at us, shouting, “Do you have to do that?” Startled, we quickly moved from the counter to a table. I sensed this man was very unstable and in certain situations could be dangerous.

When anger is directed toward me in close quarters I feel a stabbing sensation in my solar plexus, but when it is directed to me over a distance, I feel the emotion as if it were arising from me rather than someone else. It took me a while to recognize the anger was not my own. Negative energies are more easily felt when directed toward us because they are sharp, so to speak. They have a tendency to stab, jar or wound. Positive energies are more subtle, making us feel uplifted, encouraged and loved. Not that they are any less detectable, merely less forceful. A case in point is when my former sister-in-law was visiting us. At one point she had her back to me clearing off the dinner table. I began to think of what a sweet and loving person she was and for an instant, my heart went out to her. Suddenly she turned around to face me with a pleasantly surprised look on her face and asked, “What did you just do to me?” The fact that she “sensed” my feelings left me just as surprised!

During our group sessions, I once noticed a strange and unpleasant sensation in my solar plexus. It was eventually determined to come from a single member of the group. After I privately met with her she admitted to being resentful for having to spend so much time on group projects. Since I was the one responsible for this, she directed her anger toward me. I told her she must not feel obligated, and there would be no hard feelings if she left the group. She eventually did leave the group and went on to open two bookstores. We remained friends for a long time afterward.

Telepathy and clairsentience are amplified among those close to us. Friends, family members, and spouses share a particularly tight bond. Their concern for each other and frequency of contact tends to strengthen that bond, increasing their sensitivity to one another. By thinking of ourselves as generating a particular frequency, we may better understand how this mechanism operates. When someone we have close ties with thinks of us strongly enough, or in a manner that will somehow touch our lives, they enter our receptive frequency. Usually, the waking conscious mind is too preoccupied with the outer to notice what is taking place on inner levels until such time as it enters the dream state.”

As for the vicariousness, this is true, but it is not involuntary as implied, at least not with me. In my series of posts on Aliens & Demons I found that in more than one case, I could see through the victim’s eyes and locate the malicious entity, regardless of its attempts to hide. I do the same with dream interpretation, but this works best with people I know and have established a bond with. As they describe the dream to me, I enter the dreamscape in the imaginary sense and can accurately interpret the dream. As I stated, this occurs more so with those close to me than with those whom I have less contact with. In the latter cases, I rely partially on intuition, but primarily on what I was taught and what I learned over the years.

Another bonus to being an empath comes in the form of lovemaking. In this instance, one can feel what his or her partner feels. Therefore, one knows exactly where and how to touch the other in order to bring about an immediate and pleasurable response. Most profound is experiencing your partner’s orgasm as if it was your own, and when experienced at the same moment jointly—something that can easily be accomplished—it makes for a most intense experience.

They have coined a word for this: “Clairempathy, a type of telepathy to sense or feel within one’s self, the attitude, emotion or ailment of another person or entity.” This, however, can be controlled through detachment. After all, who wants to feel another’s ailment or pain? Essentially, an empath is someone whose sensory input or level of feeling is heightened to varying degrees, depending on the individual. Some will be more sensitive than others and if one cannot detach emotionally, it can result in a very trying experience.

Hopefully, this extremely brief overview will help to bring a bit of enlightenment to those Lightworkers who are awakened or in the process of awakening, and I encourage them to pursue the study of this subject. Especially since being an empath is part and parcel of 5D Consciousness.
