Empath Healer?


have a felling I'm an empath and possibly a healer but I'm not sure. I'd like some help figuring this out. I have always been a very empathetic and sensitive. In fact family members complain I'm too sensitive... My emotions do run high I guess.

I didn't even know what an empath was until I recently watched a show about psychic kids. One of the kids on the show was an empath. Since I realized I had a bit in common with the kid on the show I researched what an empath is and I found many more reasons to believe this could be so. I cry easily, get overwhelmed with emotion, I've been called moody a lot, I get colds frequently, often feel bad for other people when they go through hard times, try to help people, I'm very artistic, I won't watch movies or shows that have a lot of violence and torture... I just can't take it, I usually cry when watching sad movies or shows, It only takes me a few minutes after meeting someone to decide weather or not I think the person is a good person or a person I'd like to know and usually I am right after getting to know them, I can usually tell when someone is lying, and I can usually tell what kind of mood a person is in... Sometimes I know immediately and sometimes they have to say something first but I pick up on it relatively quick.

I feel doubt about the possibility that I am an empath because of a few reasons. I get my artistic abilities from my mom so it's pretty normal... Genetic I guess, I have ADHD so I'm randomly hyperactive and suddenly calm when not medicated, and I was emotionally abused as a child so that's probably why I'm highly sensitive and emotional which covers a lot of the reasons why I think I might be an empath but there are still some things I mentioned that I can't come up with a reason for.

Moving on to the possibility of me being a healer. I can't say I know a whole lot about healers but I've noticed that there are a lot of Empath/Healers. I've read small bits of information and I remember something about the temperature of hands which is what made me curious. See my hands and feet are generally very cold. Although I've noticed for a few years that my fingers will get extremely hot occasionally... They even turn red down to the knuckles and sometimes my palms do as well. The top of my hand below the knuckles will still be cold though and there's no color change. I've always thought it's just poor circulation... But now I'm wondering if maybe it's something else. My neck, chest, and forearms, also get patches of red occasionally and feel very warm.

As a result of the information I've learned since researching this I have started meditating. I really like it a lot but I find it hard to find time to do it so I've only meditated about 4 times ever. Since I started that I've been more... Intuitive I guess. I can guess numbers and I'm relatively good at the remote viewing test on this website. It's very interesting and fun. I feel drawn to this.

I would like to know if I am an empath or healer and if I am... How do I know what kind, and what should I do about it? I would really appreciate any help anyone can give me, I really want to fully understand the situation I'm in. Thank you!

Thank you for responding. I really want to learn as much about this as possible if there is a possibility that I am an empath. I don't know much about this so I have to ask exactly what are energies?

A few years ago my boyfriend and I rented a very tiny apartment in a really old house. We think it's possible that the place was haunted... But we both haven't fully decided if we believe in that or not. We would hear knocks and things banging occasionally... Then sometimes things like candle holders or cups would be moved in odd possitions when we woke up in the morning. It was sorta crazy.

I can definitly relate to the concept of not being able to relax when your around lots of people. I avoid situations like that for sure. I am most comfortable when I'm alone or with one person that I'm close to.

As far as good websites I've visited thus far... I would say this one has been the most helpful. But I can list a few that I think were alright.

This link is a video about highly sensative people. I can relate to many of the things this woman says:

This is a link to a website that discusses empath traits:

I hope those sites help you out!

Glad to hear from you! I can't honestly say I know too much about empaths or if I even am one lol. I can't really hear or read people's minds. The only way to describe it I guess is to say that I can feel their's not like if someone is mad I feel mad. But I can feel that they are mad if that makes any sense at all. This also isn't a for sure thing... I have to pay more attention to it first but I think as a result of feeling whatever emotion someone is feeling I get a different mood. Like for example... If someone is mad I notice sometimes that my mood will become negetive or if they're really excited my mood will become posative. I'm not sure if this happends all the time though...

As for the torture movies... Ah it's so bad. It seems like everyone I know wants to watch those kinds of movies and I'm always the one that's begging them not to. It's sort of embarassing I guess. When I was a kid I absolutly hated all scary movies but my family loved them so I had to watch them here and there. Eventually I got over the fear in my early teens and I loved scary movies... Now I'm almost 23 and the only kinds of scary movies I will watch are a few paranormal movies... Nothing involving torture. I stopped watching those kinds of movies about 3 years ago. My friend rented the hills have eyes and that was it... I couldn't even finish it.

So what's your experience with scary movies? Do you physically feel what they are going through or is it something else?

Thanks a lot for the responce... I really appreciate it.:)

I relate with your story. My emotions also run high and I feel very deeply and intensely at times. My emotions were at their peak when I lived in an old home and I sensed strange energies and saw unusual things there. My emotions settled when I moved out. I so become emotional at the drop of a hat however for weird reasons... Lately I got so overwhelmed at the sight of road kill that I cried. I sense people's energies. I can't relax when there are lots of people around. I am most relaxed when I am alone. I too think we can help each other. Do you know of any good websites I can research?

Hello! I feel so much of what your expressing. Especially with watching torture movies. I just can't because I start to feel what they could be enduring. I cannot "hear" or "read" others minds to feel their emotions. Can you please contact me to talk further? I really think we could help each other out.
