The Beauty And The Agony Of Being An Empath These Days

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
many of you who follow my posts on a regular basis know by now, that I am an Empath who is blessed with the traits of high sensitivity, clear hearing and vision. One of the challenges that I am monitoring empathic people and Indigo Children quite often experience, is a kind of emergency shut down of our communication skills and social interaction abilities, when we are feel overloaded with too much input that our nervous system detects as fake information.
Personally it took me years of conscious attention and search for deeper understanding till I could get a grip on what actually happens to me in such moments, and the current generations daily have to deal with so much more influences than my generation had to, its amazing they are still standing. Nevertheless, this is the moment in time where all of us are called to be an active part of the creation of a better world for all of humanity, and to shape up!

Me, I am a deep believer that in this intense time of change and transformation it is of crucial importance, that all human beings identify their personal abilities in order to embody who they really are, and to extend even more into their full personal strength. We need to grow up as gifted spirits, while we are all going through constant frequency waves of opening to profounder layers of understanding our place in life.

For people with the traits of an empath, it is challenging these days to find the right balance between self-care and service to the greater picture. Our brains are literally wired to jump as helper into gear, any minute when our senses are activated by the environment. That should make the empath aware, that one of the most important traits we need to develop, is the ability to set and energetically hold clear boundaries with those surrounding us.

Another tricky thing to consider is that many empathic beings, if they are aware of it or not, are equipped with a set of natural insights about the impact of the divine / hermetic law of cause and effect in this world. They often sense immediately the kind of price the collective or the single person will have to pay for a particular action or decision. A price usually known by the name of Karma. Being aware of those impacts makes it hard on sensitive souls, to step back and let the ball play out as it has to, while having to watch the pain that comes from it. But it is important for us to direct our energies wisely and use our strength in places where we can make a change.

Especially when it comes to paradigms in parenting, changes in governmental institutions, political activism, medical health care, educational development, earth preservation and changes in the mindset about authority figures; the Empath and the Indigo Child have a job right now, to express what they can sense is true development for the collective of humanity, and where we united have to reevaluate our lifestyle and beliefe systems.
The agony of the empath is feeling the pain of another but being unable to save them from it.
D.L. Hope

There is also a natural and very, very strong empathy with the underdog, with people who have suffered, people who have been pushed around by foreigners in particular, but also by their own people.
Lakhdar Brahimi

It is because I think so much of warm and sensitive hearts, that I would spare them from being wounded.
Charles Dickens

The discoveries of how we can grow and the insights we need to have really come from the inside out. To have genuine empathy, not as a make-nice tool but as an understanding, is essential to the next step.
Patricia Sun

We change our behavior when the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of changing. Consequences give us the pain that motivates us to change.
Henry Cloud

Create boundaries. Honor your limits. Say no. Take a break. Let go. Stay grounded. Nurture your body. Love your vulnerability. And if all else fails, breathe deeply.
Aletheia Luna

A “No” uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a “Yes” merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
Mahatma Gandhi

“No” is a complete sentence.
Anne Lamott
Dear ones, I hope you enjoyed reading this piece as much as I did sharing it. That it holds insights and support for you, if you find yourself confronted with such challenge as being an empathic or highly sensitive being within an unbalanced human collective. We are all together playing an important role in the awakening into the Golden Age of Aquarius, so keep going and giving.
Love and Blessings
Edith
