I'm a CHRISTIAN and I believe with all my heart in CHRIST and I have this Gift!


Empath

Hi Martha. I was raised pentecostal all my life and have experienced what you are describing. It was frustrating for me as an adult, as I always felt I had no "gift". Everyone in church seemed to have a gift to sing, lead worship, play an instrument, etc. and I couldn't do any of those things. But I found I could pray and learned that I was an "intercessor". At times it was draining as I deeply felt, or "took on" what I was praying for and at times it could be depressing. It was also very difficult sometimes to pray for the "fake" ones, I'd always try to take a step back and think "well I'm a sinner too so don't judge", but I am only human and especially when you know what someone is doing outside the church, it was difficult. I will tell you what made it easier for me. When I would pray with someone, I visualize them as a child. Not as the adult, the person who I have no idea what they have been through to bring them to this point, what hurts and mountains they have had to climb to make them not trust, or "fake", or whatever. But when you see them as innocent children, that they may be hurting inside and vulnerable (like a child) it makes it so much easier, and your heart fills with compassion it's amazing! I hope this helps. God bless!

new to the word "empath"


Empath

Hi everyone. I am new to the word "empath" but have often been called an "intercessor". Doing research on the internet it seems the two may be interchangeable. Just a little about myself. I am a Nurse Practitioner and have been a nurse over 25 years. As a child I once saw an angel and we also lived in a "haunted" house where very strange things happened, like hearing chain noises bounce off the walls and me and my brothers would see shadow men all the time. I can get more into that if anyone is interested. I've had dreams that come true and one time had a dream the same night three times in a row, kind of like a warning, and when I woke up the third time it was actually happening. Some people have told me I always take the under-dog's side in a situation, but I think that is only because sometimes I am trying to understand why people do what they do and what they have been through in their live to get them to such a point. Sometimes if I get overwhelmed and start to cry I will just shut down the feeling and stop thinking about it. That's why I am here. I want to learn how to better use this gift I believe we have been given and what to do to channel that energy more positively in order to actually help someone as opposed to just shutting the feeling down. Today, myself and three others actually "ghost" hunt and have picked up some pretty awesome EVPs and other evidence of life on the other side. So anyway, just wanted to introduce myself, hopefully make some new friends with other empaths and learn a lot more! Glad to meet you all. Have a blessed, rich day!
