Empathic Abilities and Connections: “The Feeling”

Empathy, empathic abilities, and what I call “energetic connections” (or emotional connections) between people are all about feeling what someone else is feeling. Some of us empaths, or “highly sensitive people,” have these abilities more than others, to the extent where it seems like a curse. If you’ve formed an emotional, empathy-type connection to someone who is terminally sick, mentally ill, or overstressed, the emotions can be debilitating. On the other hand, merging with a lover takes biological to chemical to alchemical thrills.
- A mother’s intuition where she feels her baby’s pinched finger as if it were her own flesh.
- Suddenly feeling something is horribly wrong and getting a call 10 minutes later that a loved one has died.
- A High Priestess who forms a strong bond with the Initiates of her coven and can sense when one of them is in trouble—or doing quite well.
