this is something one obviously cannot judge 100% from a distance and without knowing all involved somewhat closer. When you say that your mom identified you as a rainbowcrystal child though - it very much sounds like she is interested in spiritual things herself? I know that over here in Germany or the UK most skeptics would likely never even have heard the term, and especially not name their children as such - so I would be surprised if you, coming out to your mum as an empath, would be a shock to her....

Personally my mum is a bit of an empath herself, but would likely not admit to it (too catholic for that). When I had problems, that was in my 20s and 30s though, she usually told me that they were just in my mind, and I should just ignore them. I knew that was wrong, and I do not hate her for it - she tries her best - and over the years she has become somewhat more understanding....One has to accept people where they are and not where one wants them to be :))

All the best! And you know you can always ask your divine helpers and guides for help and guidance too? (if you believe in such)

Your mom seems fairly open to the idea of these gifts it seems because of how she reacted to the first news you gave her. Based on that, I would think telling her the rest would probably be ok. Also a side note, I've always had an abnormally high pain tolerance as well. Growing up, my mom always took me directly to the doctors if I complained of pain because she knew if I was complaining then it must really hurt. Also, I went almost 36 hours with an inflamed appendix before the doctors realized what it was because apparently the pain level I was reporting was way lower than what people typically report with appendicitis (luckily my mom kept insisting on tests or it may have never been caught!). My family doctor actually accused me of lying about the pain! Haha. Oh well. I'm not sure if a high pain tolerance is an empath thing or not but I definitely can relate.

I have an extremely high pain tolerance as well, not sure if it is an empath thing though. You mention that you are autistic, that might be part of the high pain tolerance thing though. My Grandson is autistic and his pain tolerance is very high also. I have not been diagnosed with autism but I do relate to my Grandson well. I think that is just be cause of my empathy.
