The Journey of Love for An Empath

Q. As an empath myself I know it can be downright exhausting and overwhelming learning to channel all the energy you encounter. Learning to block negative, project positive, and not retain it have been big challenges for me my whole life and sometimes it gets the best of me. The thing that I was thinking about specifically though that I just can’t understand is that I am aware that I have the gift to see and understand things on a broad scale, and to facilitate big things and bring forces people and ideas together simply by focusing on them and even when I am sure of something I silently just let it play out and oversee it rather than make my awareness known.

I feel that this has to do with the necessity and the experience as well as the integration of the balance of feeling/seeing/knowing the whole picture(or some could see even the destination or outcome) but also being in the moment. I feel that as spiritual beings in a human journey, our souls made a contract with Spirit that we wouldn’t KNOW it all so to speak, especially for ourselves so that we could ENJOY the journey and experience each step along the way. And then of course, as you are aware, Empaths have such a strong mission of helping other people (though just because you can see someone’s path it’s not always the way to share it with them) because they still need to go through the experience of their journey, for that is the preparation for each...
