I have all the typical character traits of an empath and I just found out last week about this. I want to learn more about the purpose of empathy in one's life script. I read something about empathy being genetic and an empath is a highly evolved soul. What does this mean? Where are the supporting evidences?
Could an empathy be just very sensitive and receptive to foreign energy, and this has nothing to do with genes or spirituality? I wonder.
I also read about an empathy is very susceptible to depression because he or she picks up other's negative energy. Then, my question is: what is the difference between mental illness and spirit possession, since both conditions have the same symptoms sometimes, such as psychotic v. Being possessed: in hearing voices or being delusional.
Can psychics and psychologists ever get together in explaining such condition as "empathy"? Dr. Mesich talks about this, but I do not really understand how. Maybe some enlightened beings out there can shed some light on this and give me some insight. I am not a skeptic but I like to analyze and get to the bottom of things.
It seems I am also a right brain person. Is that contradictory? I never try to develop my psychic ability, but I do meditate everyday, and sometimes information is disclosed to me, but I do not know how. I suspect four possible ways: from the Macrocosmos or the Source, from guardian angels, from past genetic implants, and now maybe from other people through telepathy, being an empath myself. Is this a blessing or curse?
