Am I A Young Empath?


Hello, I honestly don't know if I am a Empath, yet I have many characteristics of one. While at school, my mood always fluctuates. One moment I can be happy then angry. People say I'm very moody and all over the place. It all depends on who ever is near me and their mood. Empathy is inherited but I have no idea if any of my family members are an Empath and I don't want to ask because then I'll feel crazy.

People say I understand them easily and that I am easy to talk to about anything. Many people come to me with their problems. I sit and listen to them, while doing so I can see myself in their situation and my mood mirrors the person who is telling me about their problems. People say I have a deep understanding of helping people about their problems, but I don't even try.

If I see anyone in pain or hurt, a great deal of sadness overrides me to where I must help the person who is hurt, in pain, or crying. No matter what the person does to me, I must help them. Watching movies that have torture or strong violence saddens me. I have no idea if I am really an Empath, but my best friend see's Aura's and she says that she can see a spiritual awareness in mine. If this is true does this mean I really am an Empath?

She says that my Aura is different form others and always changes frequently and she says it could be because of all the emotions that rush over me on a day to day basis. I would really like some advice because I'm really confused, I barely even know what my own emotions are, it seems that I take on everyone's emotions at school to where I am exhausted when I get home.

Can anyone help me figure out if I really am an Empath?

I'm kind of empathic. But the emotions of other people don't affect me as much as the air. I get depressed easily with no reason. My fears can easily take over or I could be fearless. And I always feel worse in the winter

You know what, Blitzy?
My Aura shifts, too. It will actually run through the rainbow of colors.
What that MEANS, is that you are ACTIVELY learning.
The rest of it... Right now, focus on how you react to what people come to you with. If you can, imagine a white light bubble, and place yourself firmly in the middle of it. When someone comes to you with an issue, from THAT bubble, hear them out.
If the emotion comes through... It may be purely natural. And an Honorable trait. To be a good listener, and be able to put yourself in the place of another, will get you FAR in life. It does not HAVE to be in the Psychic field.
Your AGE can also point to the emotional side of things. Juggling school, home and social life really is not all that easy, then bring into the equation the natural chemical reactions that happens in a young body...
Right now, I should think the best thing to do is "wait it out". Test yourself with the bubble, test yourself with friends who are great actors (are you feeling their expressions, body language etc).
A word of caution, though. While YOU are testing yourSELF, those who KNOW you are testing, may also be. So choose your subject wisely.
Thank you.

Hi Blitzy,

The things you are describing are actually very common, it would really help if you learned to close and protect your aura and your chakras. Having strong energetic boundaries will let you interact with people and listen to them without absorbing their energy. You will still be a good listener, and sympathetic, but you won't absorb their anxieties.

There are many guided meditations that teach this. Try and do it 1st thing in the morning and again before you go to sleep. After a week or so you'll be able to do it on your own in a few minutes.

Hope this helps!


Ps... A couple grounding meditations, different tones of voice for diff tastes:
