Understanding those who can feel what you are feeling.
An empath is a person with the natural and intuitive ability to understand, perceive, and share the feelings of another.
There are two primary types of empath.
1. Those who have empathetic experiences but are at a loss of what to do with them.
2. Those, who having empathetic experiences, seek to master them and use them to serve others in kindly, loving, and compassionate ways.
The first type of empathy often lives in a state of fear and confusion. On the one hand, they have been given a great gift but on the other hand, they are fearful of its power and overwhelmed by it. They often take to self-medicating, and excessive alcohol, and substance abuse as a means to numb the overwhelming feelings that come with being an empath.
The second type of empath is on a journey to self-awareness, personal development, and metaphysically driven leadership.
An individual who has empathic sensitivity may not define themselves as an ‘empath’. Still, this doesn’t prevent them from using their empathetic sensitivity, and skills to influence others into making the world a place of greater love, compassion, and generosity. The skilled empath in action is in fact a Noble Trickster (NT). The NT groks it all and is able to psychologically shapeshift in ways that give them rapport with virtually person or animal as needed.
Though all empaths are not necessarily tricksters most tricksters are empaths. Why is this? Many individuals have the ability to apprehend the mental or emotional state of another individual but they may not know what to do with this information or sense or may even be overwhelmed by it. Empaths know they have this gift and can use it to manipulate and influence others but it is so powerful a gift that the Trickster who does not know how to balance their own Qi and emotional center may be overwhelmed by those of others. Evil or foolish empaths use their empathetic gifts to enrich or benefit themselves no matter what the cost to others. In contrast, the most skilled NTs have strict personal ethical codes and use the gift of empathy to serve others and even to confuse and disarm evil and foolish empaths.
In a sense, it might be said that the noble trickster empath is a type of emotional superhero/heroine. They are motivated and inspired by a passion to share love, kindness, compassion, empathy, wisdom, and goodness
