Understanding Empathic Ability
An Empath is a person who is perceptive, highly sensitive to their surroundings, and to the emotions of others. Yes, I am an emapth… And you may be too!
Empathic ability is a psychic sense through which empaths receive information through feeling. They feel the emotions of others, and they can sense the past, present, and future states of another on many levels.
Not sure if you're an emapth?

Are You An Empath? Angel Message with Archangel Muriel
Greetings, indeed. I am Archangel Muriel here with you now. Notice my energy signature, my presence, and how you feel. Notice any color you see, any sensation you experience, and know that as you open your heart and quiet your mind, my presence will be experienced more and more for I am here with you at this time. I am here in this moment to simply love, serve, and assist you, for you are so loved and encouraged on your path in your life, which unfolds before you one step at a time. One moment at a time life unfolds before you, indeed.
I speak to you now on empathy and on being empathic.
Empathy in understanding and relating to an experience of another, being able to understand the perspective of another, to momentarily view reality through the eyes of another, to walk that mile in another’s shoes. To understand their perspective, their hardship, their life so that you may respond with love, with non judgment, and in a way which serves the other and serves all. This is similar and yet somewhat different from being an empath.
An empath relates to the feeling and experience of others with a psychic sense, with a sense that is beyond the physical. Feeling the emotion of another, feeling the joy, the love, the sorrow, the tragedy of another as if it were one’s own.
While those who are young or newly aware of their empathic ability tend to take on the emotions of others and struggle in the emotions of others, this is not needed. Boundaries established are able to prevent you from absorbing another’s emotion and rather simply being aware of it as a feeling energy alongside your own.
An important question to ask is, “Is this mine?” For as an empath you may become overwhelmed with emotion which is belonging to another. When you feel the strong emotion ask, “Is this mine?” and let your intuitive voice, your soul voice, the guidance of your angels and spirit respond.
Yes, this is your emotion or no this is the emotion of another. In either scenario, release your attachment to it. Let go of it. If the emotion is yours, which may be the case for you are a spiritual being in physical form and storms of emotion, waves of emotion pass through you often… (You are an emotional being) Let yourself feel the emotion, acknowledge it. “This is my emotion.” Notice where the feeling is held. How does it vibrate? In which direction is it moving? Become aware of the qualities of energy of the feeling, or emotion you are experiencing and ask yourself, “Could I release it? Would I release it? When?”
Release the emotion into the light.
If the emotion you are feeling belongs to another, release attachment to it.Imagine an orb or a rose of light energy between you and the emotion of the other. This enables you to maintain your energy and vibration, to be aware of the emotion of the other without taking it upon yourself, so that you can respond to the other with love and compassion.
You understand their perspective, you understand their struggle, you understand the emotion they are feeling without needing to be flooding your experience with whatever that may be. The rose or the light orb between you and the emotion of the other filters out any energy which is not yours. You’re still aware of it, however, you have this boundary so that you are able to see where what is yours ends and where what is another begins.
Now, we digress and say, indeed, you are one with All That Is.
Energetically you are connected to All That Is. This is the foundation and the basis for how your empathic ability works. You are connected to all and so you are able to feel all. However, you are manifest in a physical body, a unique physical being in the physical realm.
You are within the realm of earth, the classroom of life, a realm of illusion in which you do experience the illusion of separation and there are reasons for this, purposes for this, and benefits in this.
You are able to separate your emotion from the emotion of the other while still recognizing that you are innately one. One life force energy manifest as two separate beings. Do you see the difference?
As your empathic ability develops and expands, as you open your heart and increase your vibration beyond simply feeling the emotions of others, you are able to get a full sense and knowing of another person in their current situation.
Perhaps you’re walking down the street and you’re able to tell, to pinpoint the people who are happy or sad in any moment. Advanced empathic ability enables you to do this without taking on any of the emotion of others. Remaining uplifted, joyful, and loving towards yourself ever increasing your vibration, expanding your ability to perceive in the world around you, to experience the divine realms, to tune in through your empathic ability without being drained or brought down when you do tune in to sorrow, density, and negativity of another.
The same is true with animals. You are able to simply look at an animal and understand are they happy or sad or tired, content, or drained.
Empathic ability enables you to walk into a room and feel the energy of a room. Has there been an argument recently? Or has someone been meditating and calling in the light and vibrations of love? When you are empathic, regardless of whether you are consciously aware, you feel people, places, situations, and so walking into a place where you feel uncomfortable for some reason, know that the cause and the root is in energy and the lesson and the blessing, the why behind being empathic is that you are able to make a difference.
You’re able to make a difference by simply radiating light and love yourself, which uplifts the greater whole that you’re connected with in every moment. In addition, when you walk into that building that is filled with tension, that is filled with past arguments, that is filled with density, you are able to uplift the vibration.
Advanced empathic ability allows you to simply vibrate like a tornado of light and love that spins around the room dissolving any dense energy into the light. But this is an advanced technique and if not executed properly can cause you to absorb negativity from the surrounding.
And so I recommend to begin this work that when you enter into a room or building or place in which you feel that tension or dense energy, call upon a cleansing and healing team of guides and angels to clear and uplift the energy.
Imagine the light of the divine entering in. Call in the light of the divine to cleanse and uplift, to raise the vibration, to release negativity and to invite in light and love for the highest and greatest good. And so it is.
Whatever your primary psychic sense, empathic ability can be developed as a compliment or as a primary sense in and of its own. There is an infinite supply of information that you can tune into through this empathic ability to feel emotion, feeling, state of being, and even physical vitality of another or of yourself.
Focus within, letting your heart open, as a blue orb of healing light is placed around you. Cleansing any blockages from your natural empathic ability to perceive.
Let these blockages be released, allowing this innate ability to understand to feel, to know about others, to shine through. To know when someone is telling the truth, to know when someone is in their authentic power or chasing the dreams of another. To know if someone is moving in the direction of their authentic purpose in their life path, or is stagnant or stuck in fear.
There are many benefits in this innate and empathic understanding of others, for you are by nature a social being and interacting with others is of paramount importance to your journey through life.
Empathic ability will help you to navigate relationships, and so breathe and open your heart and begin to simply be aware of others around you and notice, can you feel what they are feeling?
Are you aware of their present state? For as is the case with all psychic ability, when sensing beyond the physical… With awareness, the ability increases for the highest and greatest good.
And through empathic ability you are able to serve others, to truly understand their point of perspective, to love them anyway, to maintain your own vibration, and to serve with love and compassion.
I am Muriel. I’m here to assist you in the entire process and at any time when you need help understanding what you are feeling and whether what you are feeling is your own or belonging to another, invite me in.
And remember, you have the ability to shift your state in any moment when you are feeling bad. Feel the feeling, where is it and how is it vibrating? Then ask yourself, could you release it? Would you release it? When?
Release the feeling into the light, let go, and let your inner radiance shine through. You are loved and blessed. Goodbye for now.
