It’s been awhile that I have spoken to the empath’s heart and struggles, and I am definitely feeling them during these times of transitioning. I have known to be an empath for many years although most Empath’s only come to discover who they are after an intense awakening or by going through challenging times. I had both and although not sure which one, I realize it was one of these events that triggered the awareness of being an empath. What followed was a series of events of coming to terms, of understanding, of learning and adapting to new ways. In the beginning it’s confusing and being around people is then not tolerated well. We need to spend more time alone to figure it out for ourselves and try to make sense of it all. This can further intensify this strong sense of not belonging, of not fitting in, of being different. Different in the sense of not being accepted by others, making others feel uncomfortable in your presence, uncomfortable because you know exactly what is going on and it makes someone who is not ready to reveal feel naked. It’s not what you are trying to do but it this ability becomes a natural to you. You develop a sixth sense and you start reading the energy.
Dark times are like an initiation, precursor to change. We have to go through the dark to find the light. We have to lose to appreciate what we have. We are meant to move forward, have our own experience of discovery and seek out our own truth. It keeps us working towards bettering ourselves as we become stronger. There it is again…that word…stronger. And once you have gone through it all, once you have risen from the ashes like that Phoenix, strengths becomes secondary and is not your main goal anymore. When our intuition increases, when we trust our gut feelings, when we let go, we become healthier, ultimately arriving at the point where we stop looking outside ourselves for answers and go within. It is then that we realize that everything we seek is also seeking us, and that everything we need is already within us.
