Empaths come into the world already experts of nuance and what isn’t revealed. A true empath can discern which way is up with others, but it doesn’t mean it is fun for an empath. It’s often quite the opposite.
It isn’t easy for them to call out a friend, relative, or colleague on being dishonest on a ‘hunch’. Because for them, it is never just a hunch. They don’t just hear truth or dishonesty, they feel it.
They are connected to the unseen field of consciousness via their extra ordinary open senses, the first one being their intuitive sense, a.k.a. the sixth sense, but it is really our first, original sense. Because of this, they will almost always surround themselves with a close-knit circle of like-integrity and like-vibe people who share in an uplifting, supportive, peaceful give and receive way of being, without the heaviness of the toxic energy of expectation and demand. This allows them to remain connected to the field and in the higher levels of vibration it requires to maintain their energetic and physical bodies allowing them to maintain a vessel of clarity.
Keep in mind; empaths are far from perfect. They came here to experience joys, happiness, sadness, loss, love and struggle like everyone else. They are often misunderstood and don’t feel they fit in the world like most. And they thrive when they finally realize they came here to help usher in sensitivity, by using their own, to help heal a world that values the opposite. So, it is just as important to their human experience and purpose as it is to yours that they learn from their life experiences.
If you have a friendship with one, chances are they one of your more trustworthy, dependable friends with traits like loyalty, kindness, and honesty. But don’t assume their sensitivity is a weakness; it’s their strength. And the more they trust themselves, the stronger it gets, and the easier it becomes to walk away from toxicity and towards relationships based on respect and ease.
Here are 3 things that you can never hide from an empath:
1. A TRUE MOTIVE
Empaths are clearly intuitive and most (but not all) are soul-sighted as well, so another’s true inner climate (turmoil or peace) is as clear to them as the sky is blue regardless of what they are presenting.
2. AN INSINCERE FAÇADE
Their radar is always receiving so they become adept at picking their peace and choosing their battles. They not only know when they’re being used as an ear for their sage advice as they’re known for saying just the right thing, or for opportunistic reasons, they know why. (see #1). True empaths have an innate empathy for others and won’t fight an inauthentic fire with authentic fire. They will walk away from unhealthy, low vibration situations quietly.
3. AN INSINCERE GIFT
It doesn’t matter what the gift is; flattery, companionship, a great opportunity, money, or a ride home from the airport. If there is a hint of a string attached or a whiff of agenda, they will know.
An empath will always prefer and respect the brutal truth over the disappointing lie and the person who delivers it.
