Empathic Abilities and Connections: â€œThe Feelingâ€
The unseen world around us is like this web except made of energy.Â Photo credit:Â Â Automania; creative commons license.
Empathy, empathic abilities, and what I call â€œenergetic connectionsâ€ (or emotional connections) between people are all about feeling what someone else is feeling. Some of us empaths, or â€œhighly sensitive people,â€ have these abilities more than others, to the extent where it seems like a curse. If youâ€™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 motherâ€™s intuition where she feels her babyâ€™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 troubleâ€”or doing quite well.
For more information on empathy and â€œhighly sensitive people,â€ and for the most extensive article archive online concerning â€œenergetic connections,â€ we recommend the empathy, energy, and psychic categories of this website.
