Empath – Learning About the Gift
Growing up with this sensitivity towards everything, I didn’t realize that not everyone
‘felt’ the same way. I couldn’t figure out why I was so different. Then I met this chi gong
master who taught me about emotions in the human body. Based on ancient Daoist
theory, emotions and a person’s history are stored in the organs and tissues. This stems
from the view of energy, that we are are energy and everything in the universe is
energy. I find that when I work on people my diagnosis usually comes from emotional
disharmony. I also feel their pain directly in my body.
Luckily, there has been research on what is known as ‘empaths’. I really identified with
this concept. However, the Daoist theory explains to me how energy flows and congeals
which helped me understand what I was feeling. Lets not forget too the conscious
directive of energy. The phrase of ‘body mind spirit’ overlooks the common link of
energy. What you are feeling is not just in your head!
