Empaths and Empathy

The Angels Say: 

Emapths indeed feel everything going on around them.  Yet that is different from the virtue of empathy.  Empaths do not simply share the feelings of another, they are bombarded by them.  Many the empath may not understand.  Understanding is key to the virtue of empathy.  The understanding comes from experience, something that caused a feeling like that or the same type of event.

It is important to separate empathetic abilities from empathy for they are very different.  Both are gifts, and must be used properly.  An empath who feels so much for others, and not enough for themselves burns out.  It is unhealthy.

Many of you are empaths because you need this skill in this time, in this place.  You must hone your skill and learn discernment. You must set clear boundaries and take care of yourself.  You must learn to feel and take care of your own feelings – separate from those of others.  Disentangle yourself.  You will still feel what is going on and recognize it.  You can do this without getting your own feelings lost in an entanglement.

Learn to recognize the difference between being other-focused in a helpful way – and when it is destructive.  If you feel resentment, you’ve crossed the line.  Pull yourself back, release resentment, take care of yourself.

You will learn.  You must learn.  To live your own life path and destiny you must learn to live your own life.  Being an empath does mean you feel other people’s stuff – yes.  And you can let it be – and do you.

Coffee with the Angels is a writing exercise of messages from the angels, shared with me over morning coffee. Sometimes I ask a specific question, often it is as simple as “What are we writing today?”. Frequently, the messages do parallel what I am pondering, curious about, or dealing with for myself.  The text is the message from the angels, and the video contains a bit more.  May you find guidance, answers or some other benefit for your life <3
