What Type of Empath Are You?

Have you ever wondered about your unique empath traits? Just how you compare to the other empaths out there in the world?

Thankfully, the Divine gives us many different empath characteristics and strengths, and we aren't all the same! :)

This is a partial list of empath types only, and you can definitely be more than one. In fact most empaths are a combination of many of these.

EMOTIONAL EMPATH: You perceive and are very receptive to the emotions of others, you are a deep 'feeler,' and also very likely in touch with your own emotions (perhaps even bouts of crying).  Your sacral chakra may be on overdrive (when blocked it sometimes manifests as lower back pain or kidney issues).  Almost all empaths are emotional empaths.

PHYSICAL EMPATH: You feel the physical sensations (including chakras) of other people. When you get blocked, you may feel fatigued and sick.  This type of empath is also associated with autoimmune conditions and adrenal fatigue in some, and is roughly 30-40 percent of empaths. This type of empath is sometimes called a 'healing empath' because you absorb and sponge energy more than other types of empaths and can 'transmute' energy through your body. You may consider the BioElectric Shield as one option to block the absorption of energy of others. Click here to find out if it may help you.

MENTAL EMPATH: You have a talent for picking up on the thoughtforms and mindsets of others. You may have gifts of clairaudience (hearing words & thoughtforms pop into your head). Sometimes it can feel like a radio is playing in your head. Roughly 10-20 percent of empaths.

SPIRITUAL/SOUL EMPATH: You are able to tune in to the souls and spiritual body of others, perhaps knowing an individual's purpose on Earth, getting glimpses of one's past lives, and perceiving karmic issues and connections. Because you are often in 'other dimensions spiritually' - it might be even harder to ground yourself and lightheadedness might occur as well. This type of empath is roughly 10 percent of empaths.  

CLAIRCOGNIZANT/INTUITIVE EMPATH: You have the ability to 'just know' things, and even predict the future at times, especially for others. You have a deep sense of intuition and knowing, especially when it comes to other people. You likely will want to develop your intuitive gifts and sometimes doubt what you perceive.  To fully trust your intuition, you'll want to find a good intuitive development training program.

EARTH EMPATH: You can sense the movements and health of Mother Earth, including an ability to perhaps dream about earthquakes or sense when they are coming. You are deeply in tune with nature, especially the elements (air, water, fire) and almost certainly trees and plants.  If you have ever talked to or feel a desire to hug trees, then you are most likely an Earth empath.  You may also perhaps have some interest in shamanism and indigenous healing techniques, which harness the power of the Earth. Also, this type of empath is often fascinated with thunderstorms and lightning.

ANIMAL EMPATH: You are deeply in tune with the feelings and energy of animals, including energies of animals that many ignore (mice, spiders, etc). It would be recommended to work with Steven Farmer's Power Animal Oracle Cards or work with Ted Andrews famous book 'Animal Speak.'

COSMIC EMPATH:  You are deeply in tune with the energies and movements of the planets, including the moon and sun.  You may have a resonance with astrology. Full moons affect you deeply, as well as solar storms and flares.  You would be advised to sign up for the mailing list to receive notifications of major solar storms and flares that might affect your energy at http://www.spaceweather.com
