You are never going in the wrong direction if wanting to enhance yourself for the better Only you know what your strengths are.
To grow as an Empath though you may have to reconsider the `want` in your comment (albeit I may have misread?)
Empathy is not at all a gimmicky gift to play around with - Emotions of others are not yours to play around with either - What emotions of others are you wanting to absorb and project? and why? Only your emotions should you be concerned with in any form of projection!
- If when having absorbed a negative emotion (which is the most common dilemma of the Empath) it is best to try and dissolve (That is, if not having successfully deflected it) The good vibe however is something that does most of the work on its own - To be able to hold on to would be the gift and sign of amazing empathic strength.
Every one of us absorb and project on a daily basis (even those who have no belief in empathy, the difference being they do not recognize it therefore are not open to it , in turn having no ability to advance with it) - Those who do recognize and, who are open are extremely vulnerable yet amazingly strong because regardless of the excruciatingly difficult emotions and mental processes (of their own and others) they suffer - They do their best to understand, work through. resolve and soldier on (no words fully express how amazing an ability this actually is)
The true gift of Empathy is about understanding and experiencing as a means to advance spiritually and emotionally - Experience of the everything (esp the negative) is the only way to know it and not be it - Playing around and seeing what you can do with it will never serve you any purpose - And like anything, if you play around too much with something you don`t fully understand it can seriously backfire.
Dont look to absorb and project (you do that anyway) look to understand emotions for what they are
