On my post ‘At a Glance 30 Traits of an Empath’ there is one trait that has caused some controversy over the years, more than any other trait:
Trait 28. Will not choose to buy antiques, vintage or second-hand
Anything that’s been pre-owned carries the energy of the previous owner. An Empath may even prefer to have a brand new car or house (if they are in the financial situation to do so) with no residual energy.
I feel now is as good a time as any to address this particular trait. Many people wrongly assume the reason number 28 is on the list is because antiques hold negative energy. Anything pre-owned can carry negative or positive energy but this is not the reason it is on the list.
It is not unusual for antiques to be revered for their beauty and historical value. They are highly prized possessions. Even those not of a Sensitive nature will love to feel the energy and sense the history behind an antique. However, for some Empaths being around antiques, or anything previously owned, can make them feel icky. The reason for this is anything pre-owned has an energetic imprint and carries the energy of the previous owner/s in the way of residual energy.
To some Empaths this residual energy feels crowded or cluttered and as many Empaths abhor clutter and crowding (See post) they feel a natural aversion or repulsion to second-hand items without really knowing why.
Clutter equates to stagnated energy and is extremely draining to the body and mind. Even clutter the eye cannot see has a debilitating effect on the Empath and creates a sense of overcrowding. It can deplete the energy, cause feelings of sluggishness, apathy and an uninspired mind.
Too much residual energy leads to a cluttered mind and energy field
If you are one who has a natural aversion of antiques, old properties or anything second-hand, now you know why.
As with anything in life there are always exceptions. There are some Empaths who dislike anything new or mass-produced and love being round antiques and previously owned items, especially those who have the gift of psychometry. Psychometry is a psychic gift which enables one to hold an object, such as a ring, and psychically receive detailed information about its owner/s.
Some have the gift of psychometry naturally but it is also something one can develop through practice. The best place to start is by practising meditation regularly. Meditation helps you receive information about certain objects. It should be noted if you are serious about developing any psychic gift it is best to consult an experienced teacher who knows and understands about the traits of an Empath. They can show you protection techniques as well as ways of closing down.
