There are 30 traits as of today that one can take a test to find out if they are one. To understand, as the saying goes, “put yourself in the other persons shoes”.
3. Feeling others emotions and taking them on as your own: This is a huge one for empaths. To some they will feel emotions off those near by and with others they will feel emotions from those a vast distance away, or both. The more adept empath will know if someone is having bad thoughts about them, even from great distance.
Also, in the book, The Wisdom of Menopause, by Christiane Northrup – While your mother was pregnant with you, you were carrying 1/2 your emotions and 1/2 her emotional body of being.
When you were born you carried 1/2 your emotional body of being and 1/2 your mothers emotional body of being, and her mother before her, and her mother before her, etc, etc.
To understand the emotional body of being is to understand the holographic world. That is the point of the Holographical Umbilical Cord. Understanding it is part of how it is filtered, where it is filtered, and where it collects.
To change it and make it whole is to learn how to reconnect you with you.
I love being a Metaphysician. I love teaching people how to reconnect mind/body/emotion/spirit into 1 love, Self-Love.
