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!
