Although being an empath or empathic person can come with the feeling burdened by being around others, empathy can lead people to offer their unique skills to aid others. Empathy also has the unique ability to deeply feel and understand joy, encouragement, excitement, curiosity, enthusiasm, kindness, consideration, meditation and prayer, thoughtfulness, beauty, and sharing beingness with another person, animal or place.
The Healer Empath
Without Physical Contact
When empathic sensitivity is heightened, the healer can perceive without actually touching, but with their hands extended in front of a person who has come to receive a healing treatment. The sensor/empath uses their hands and hand chakras as sensitized perception tools. These instruments, translating and provide information. Awareness that can be perceived through the hand chakras are heat, coolness, tingling, thickness, a breeze, energy, emptiness, colors, illness, wellness, energy blocks within the body or room. Heightening awareness and the ability of sensing through the hand chakras is developed through practices in energy medicine studies.
The healer empath can also be the peson who understands by being in the presence of another, the emotional, physical, mental, and etheric/spiritual issues that are present. These people do not use their hands as sensors but listening to the energy as it is presented. The healer empath sometimes does not even know they are doing this.
With Physical Contact
This is the ability to perceive information from a person or object by touching the individual, or holding an object that belonged to the individual. Some intuitive healers receive information when they are in contact with the person they are working with that allows them to see and feel where the energy is blocked within the patient’s physical body. This can be related to many different levels of healing: muscular tissue congestion, meridian blockage, behavioral patterns, unreleased emotions, or accumulation of energy from past relationships and situations.
