What Is True Empathy?
It may come as a surprise to some that we all display empathy traits. Which of you do not have some form of understanding, an empathy synonym, of another person’s emotional state without being told in words what they are feeling? If you are in a relationship I am certain that you have felt the love another has for you. This empathy which should not be mistaken for sympathy which can be experienced a feeling of pity or sorrow for someone else’s disappointment or worry.
Why Is Empathy Important
Now here is an interesting fact, empathy is actually a psychic ability. It is known as Clairsentience. You and everyone else, with the rarest of exceptions, are an intuitive empath. This empathic psychic ability, or gift, allows us to feel, understand, relate and just plain get along with others. The opposite of empathy is apathy and you are most assuredly aware of what happens when some displays an apathetic attitude towards you. The human race would be a very unhappy brotherhood if we were void of this wonderful gift. I use the word gift because this exactly what it is. It is a spiritual gift. Our true nature is Spirit and these abilities such as empathy are inherent in each of us.

First; yes empaths are psychic. We are all born with a variety of psychic abilities. More than 20 actually. These mostly go dormant for various reasons. However Empathy, Clairsentience, generally remains active to a point. There are also different varieties of empathic abilities. Here are some of the varieties:
- Psychometric Empath,
- Geomantic Empath,
- Fauna Empath,
- Moon Goddess Empath.
Each of these is an intuitive ability and can fall under the general category of Clairsentience. Each of these specific gifts allows information to be intuited through emotions without knowing any particulars about the other individual.

Empaths And Relationships
Can empathy and relationships abide each other? The challenges of emotional intuition have brought many an empath to me with complaints like “Help me! Being an empath is killing me.” They need to know that being an empath is not a personality disorder however empaths and depression often go hand in hand because as an untrained empath you can occasionally have trouble discerning your emotions from those of others. Being an empath in a relationship can be challenging for both parties.
Empaths need to protect themselves from energy vampires and narcissists. I teach them how to use empath protection tools. It is very important for them to totally learn how to embrace being an empath.
