So I’m writing about empaths and have been for nearly 10 years or more. It is easy for me to write about, because you see, I am one.I’m not sure where some of these NewAge ‘gurus’ have gotten their information, but a lot of it is made up…especially key phrases and statistics. We need to set the record straight. I’m not saying that I am any better, smarter or anything of that nature. What I AM saying is this: there are many, many of us out there and many humans have ability.
Misconception 1: Only 1-2% of the population are empaths. This is totally false…where do people get off making garbage out of the clear blue? I’ve been reading and working with empaths for 25 years, and I have found the numbers to be more like 20-30%, which is about 1/3 of the population.
Misconception 2: Empaths are born not created. This is a total fallacy. While we are all born a certain say, empath MUST be nurtured, and much ability comes AFTER trauma. Yes, that’s right; a trauma often truly unleashes abilities people never really realized.
Misconception 3: Super Empaths can create their own reality, and can manifest their lives. DUH…..we are ALL a piece of God and can create our own reality. No super human powers needed, just being human and learning cause-and-effect, and positive and negative energy, and how to use it for your benefit.
Misconception 4: Super Empaths can exchange energy, and give and receive energy and healing. WRONG!!!! All humans can give and receive energy. ALL humans can help others heal. We as a species can empathize with others; the difference is literally absorbing the energy and internalizing it as to just understanding what they are going through.
So these are just a FEW of the misconceptions! Just remember there are many of us…probably just like you!
