As an empath, one who feels the emotional current of the world, the emotions become quite a study. I believe all woman are empaths for it is a gift that comes with childbearing. Many men too. I inspire all to tap into their emotions for it is a valuable gift to sense the world. A guidance system of the energy around you. Emotions are energy moving.
We all are so good at pretending and masking our emotions, smiling when we are not happy, being kind when inside we are angry that the world is a confusing place to one using there sensing rightly. It is a gift of the body that many don't use. Unfortunately, many whether they know it not, can tell on some level that things are not as they seem yet can't quite put their finger on it. We all know this feeling. I consider that it has to do with this underlying sea of emotions that has a whole different world going on than appears on the surface.
We have been taught what is considered acceptable social behavior. We all want to follow those rules of social ettiquette. However, it is a very misleading world of what is really happening below the surface in the murky world of emotions. If we take things at face value, the situations we encounter have a much different appearance than what is really going on. We all do a great disservice to each other by not being honest about our feelings, We are energy, all connected and as our awareness gets greater, more people will understand this empathy and there is no hiding.
As one who feels this underlying current, I get confused for words are being said but the feelings in the room don't match them. I am perplexed and then begin to wonder what is really happening, why are you feeling anger when this person in front of you appears calm. Or why are they saying all is okay when I feel that they are not okay. Much of my life, I considered I just couldn't decipher the reality of things and often turned this misunderstanding of what appeared to be occurring against myself in the form of doubt. Not anymore for I clearly understand what is happening when others don't. Why it is a gift. I know what others need even when they don't.
Many empaths become addicts or get lost in medicating themselves for they feel this undercurrent so strongly. They don't know how to get away from all this negativity they feel when on the surface, there appears to be none. It can be very confusing if you don't know this gift. With feeling others emotions and they have different words that don't match what is really going on, it seems like chaos. I spent alot of my life in this confusion until I realized this gift and began to investigate it. There are many still lost with this gift having no understanding. The world is very unsettling for them.
What I find is that most people don't truly know their own emotions for a life time of pretending. Negative emotions are present and rather than speak through them or share them, most are just stuffing them down and giving forth a calm demeanor that may look that way but feels very different They call this passive aggression. With our social "how are you?' and the common "fine" answers of small talk, we do everyone a disservice. Most importantly ourselves. How are we to commune rightly if everyone is "hiding" their truth?
Knowing your emotions as the guidance they are is key to your experience here. They offer you signs on your environment, what is good, when to leave, what direction to take. With this training to pretend, we miss the gift and purpose of energy moving (emotion) and get quite confused ourselves. I find that I know what others are feeling better than they do. I can tell them but they will often disagree at first. A day or two later, they will come back and tell me after they thought about it, I was right on. At the time they fought me tooth and nail that I was wrong. I have learned to trust my sensing over their awareness.
After great study of knowing my own emotions, what they feel like, I can tell when an emotional current is in the room. I have great awareness of how I feel so if another feeling is present, it is obvious it is there. Their words may not match it but the tone of the vibration is clear. It gets complicated on how to operate when one is saying one thing yet feeling another. I used to get upset that people where not being honest. Yet now I realize they don't even know they are annoyed fully to share it anyway. Often so disconnected from their own emotional nature and unaware. How did it get to this? Our emotions are an important guidance to the world and have great purpose to inform us.
I believe many relationships, communication and connection is misunderstood between people for this Image of what we are to say and share with others. What we really think about things is not truly expressed. . Resentment, hidden anger, annoyance all get put into a relationship with no words on them. An empath is very aware of this. It is not always a good thing to feel the truth of the emotions present. People often try to pin on me their emotions that they are unaware of. I am very discerning who I want about me and often find being alone is easier.
I share this mostly as a invitation to tap into your own emotions so you can use them, this sensing to support your understanding of the world. When you know your own emotions, you can better know others without words. This may not always be a good thing, for I often battle folks on this yet in the end they are grateful for the awareness. You will at least know greater the truth of what is occurring around you in clarity even when others do not. This has been great self care for me to get out of situations quickly or avoid negativity that often the giver of it doesn't even know they are clearly sharing it with me.
The multidimensional consciousness is opening and our children are much more adept at this. This fake out culture won't last long if their sensing is as clear as mine. I am thankful for it is hard to surf the sea of emotion that is around with no one claiming it. Often they push it on me and it is really their own misunderstanding of themselves. In reality it is written on your face and in your whole body language. Discover your true emotions. It is a juicy, fun world to really feel them all rather than the few goods ones we are allowed to express!
