As an Empath, you feel and experience the world and your surroundings much more deeply and intensely than those around you. Empaths are believed to make up 5% of the population and personify empathy – the ability to physically, emotionally and psychologically experience the feelings of other people on a daily basis. The Empath has a brilliant sense of intuition, compassion and listening skills, but often experiences a variety of negative side effects from their ability. Lower level Empaths tend to suffer frequent fluctuating moods. The Super Empath masters control of emotions and is able to choose whether or not to receive the emotions of others. Empaths can develop a variety of illnesses from the multitude of emotions they carry around within them each day. Empaths are greatly valued and cherished by their friends and family for their willingness to listen, comfort and counsel those in need.
