I Have Found Out That I Am An Empath


My name is Isabella and I am 15 years old, and I have recently found out that I am an empath.

My entire childhood, I served as being a mediator. If someone was being teased, I defended them. I always seemed to put myself in someone else's shoes. When I was 7 or 8, I could not stand the fact that innocent animals were being brutally slaughtered for food, so I became a vegetarian out of the guilt.

Also, whenever someone mentions physical pain, such as a broken arm, I tend to feel their pain as well. Am I taking the pain away from them, or just connecting with them? I also can feel someone's pain that I am emotionally close with, without them telling. I was thinking about a friend, and got a pain in my wrist, and she called me telling her wrist hurt, and so on.

I can also connect to people who I am not physically close to. Such instances are when I just know someone is pregnant. My mom mentioned my dad's coworker, and I said, "Oh, is she pregnant yet?" My mom said, "No." 3 weeks later or so we were out for dinner with her, and she announced she was 4 weeks pregnant. I hadn't seen her before, and she certainly wasn't showing yet.

I have predicted numerous other pregnancies. It is usually a strong urge that comes into my mind. In one instance, I woke up in the middle of the night, a week after a woman I knew's wedding, and thought she was pregnant. A few months later, the thought kept coming to me, and for a week I was asking everybody if she was. One night, I had a dream she was pregnant. Guess what she announced the next day. (Keep in mind I hadn't seen her since before she got married.) Even freakier- Her due date is 9 months, one week after her marriage date.

Also, I can think about someone, or even look at a photo of them, and my 4th chakra hurts. It is like a dull pain on my breastbone. Would that do with being an empath?

I have been told that feeling for other people is a heavy weight to carry, so how do I cope until I can use my gifts for good. Are there any other empaths that can relate, or have advice? Thanks so much in advance.

You are quite likely one.
You have 3 choices as an empathe.
You can receive the feelings you feel and understand them, find a way to nurture their feeling positively and cleanse it within you. I would not recommend this method unless you know you are a very strong person. Because crowds with festivities can be overwhelming.
Like going to an amusement park for Memorial Day also a week for high schools to play.
(Can be really overwhelming)
Either resurface your own feelings by focusing on yours a bit more so you don't feel overwhelmed by another's. Or by having a distracted thought focused while listening.
Or you can learn to block some of the feelings that you receive.
But don't do these methods until you have a understanding a better understanding on how you decipher your feelings from others.
Well Good luck.

i can also feel the physical pain of other people. If someone is sad, I can feel what they feel without them even telling me. When my mother complained about her arm hurting, mine hurt too. And today when I was out with friends, I all of a sudden felt dizzy and couldn't walk without someone holding on to me. It went away after an hour or two. I found out ten minutes ago that my mother was feeling dizzy too because of an injury she got earlier today.

I wonder if I am a empath? Whenever someone close to me or not even that close is very upset without showing it I get to feeling this way. Mostly with my dad but it's any emotion and I always know how he is going to feel that day b4 it even starts. Could I be a empath?

i really can relate to you. I've just recently found out I am an empath and learned to embrace it. Rather than pushing it aside, I've decided to take it on since I use it everyday. We are sensitive to mostly anything that we decide to put ourselves into. Like pertaining to physical and emotional pain. There was a party that I attended before at a dojo and my friend had a sword. As in a real sword. He was explaining how gory and nasty it would be to have it slice through your skin. And from there I couldn't take it and told him to put it away since the blade looked so sharp I could only imagine and feel the pain I'd feel if it were to really cut me.

Alright, so how do I take the weight of feeling others' pains off of me? I really feel that it is hard for me to go by when I feel pain.

I've formed a bond with my girl best friend, and when I'm nowhere near her I'll suddenly feel her emotions and her physical pain, and I'll have to find out. Sometimes I'll text her and say "headache in the forehead?" and I'll be right. It is a good thing though, I'm not a healer but you might have the potential to become one.

Empathy is a beautiful thing to be able to harvest, however, as you implied, it is a hard burden to carry. The fourth chakra, the chakra of the heart, is also the bearer of compassion, which is why you may feel it hurt when thoughts on someone, especially if the person is in some sort of pain, (and let's face it, 99% people are) come to you. Feeling for others isn't only bad for the empath at times, but it is also in a very weird way, "addicting". I have been empathic all my life, but just learned to shield myself from emotions about three years ago. However, I hate to do so. It feels as if I cannot be myself, cannot LIVE without everyone else's emotions nagging at me. This is a very bad habit... Very unhealthy.

Feeling the pain do not to take it away from the person. But you may come a healer if this is in your path.

The good news is your realizing this when your still young. Read experiences from other Empaths here. Research, but don't over-think anything. There are a lot of younger people who will read your article and immediately connect with you, and you will relate to a lot of what you read from others.
