Empath Or Not?


My name is Katy and I am 16. For the past few years I thought I was an Empath but I've read so many things that now I'm not so sure WHAT I am.

I came across a website, a fanfiction site actually, where the main character was an empath. I've never heard of empaths before so I looked it up, I'm a really curious person. When I started reading about it, something in my brain just sort of clicked. I've never really felt normal or like that I belonged so I thought that maybe this was why.

I continued my research and found that I had many of the same abilities or experiences as an empath. I can feel others emotions, channel my chakra, and do a low-level (REALLY low level) healing. Unfortunately nothing that I find on the internet seems to help me. I have a lot of spiritual friends but nobody is an empath so they can't help me except as support.

I found this website and decided to read some of the articles that felt close to my problems. Only, some of them aren't even empaths! So now I'm not even researching for the right answers. Then I read one saying something about how their spirit guide helps them, so I decided to try this out. Except I'm not sure if the voice answering back is myself or the guide. My brain never seems to turn off so meditating into a blank state never seems to work so when I ask a question, a mixture of answers pop up because I make them up or for some other reason which I don't know.

Needless to say, I am hopelessly confused. Can anyone help me find some answers?

Hello, I'm not sure exactly what's going on with me either. Ever since I have started meditating things have been happening to me, like feeling others emotions and seeing shadow like figures. If someone who knows what there talking about can help me out with this stuff just message me I really really would like help.

The world wide web... >.< haha My name is Annie, and I'm an empath (: Most empaths don't even realize they ARE empathic until somebody tells them there is such a thing. For instance, I found out I was when one day (I already knew I was psychic, and knew what an empath was) I was walking with my friend who had just been broken up with. The whole time I walked with them, I felt as if I was about to cry. As soon as they left, I felt normal again. That's when I first really started knowing my empathy.
It's a natural gift, empathy, just like most other psychic gifts. Truly, we're all born with it, most of the time, and as we grow up in this environment, we lose our talents. Luckily some of us never lose all of them, or we discover them before they're gone. Empathy is one of the most natural psychic gifts, one that is just over the line between the normals and differents. It is really helpful, but also a TOTAL pain in the butt. (;
If you want to talk more, I know I love meeting other psychics, and takling, so you can e-mail me at annie.haftl [at]

I would say I feel 100% confident in mysleft being an empath allthought I wouldn't say for 100% sure what being an empath relates as far as being a psychic. You are only 16 so when I was 16 I wasn't quite sure what was up either, but when you turn 21 and you walk into a bar and the next day everyone talk about how drunk you must have been (when you didnt' drink) you'll know if you are an empath or not 😆 Problem with being an empath and figuring out what that means is that empathy is emotion and an emotion is explainable by scientific reasoning. How do you view the sense of emotion that you get? For me emotion is a form of energy that attaches itself to me like an odor of smoke does. It also is capable of impacting your own emotions (ect. Getting angry for no reason and not knowing why) but then realizing the person in the room with you is upset with you because of something you did.) I do not meditate well, so I am verbal about things I sense and wether there is something there or not I will say knock it off I don't like that or just go away, yes silly if it's nothing but that's what I do. You didn't really share any experiences so I can't attest to your ability you just talk about reading the signs and feeling like that resembled you well. I also have no sense of emotion with reading your response nor while I respond back to it. Perhaps you are just an extremely inquisitive and sensitive person. It could also mean you could also have empathic abilities since sometimes I feel like a blank slate and have only been molded by the emotions and energy around me, (not the greatest feeling in the world) but because of this I am extremely grateful becuae I can be anythign and everything I want of me all I have to do is control my enviroment (a huge plus!) if you have any qeustions, your more then welcome to e-mail me at the e-mail I have listed on my profile. If you are an empath this should all make sense...
