One of the most frequently asked questions by those on the path of awakening is: What is my purpose as an Empath?
I know only too well how frustrating it is to have this question burning unanswered within. It is also frustrating to have this incredible gift and not know what it is for or what to do with it.
Many Empaths feel they should be helping others. But because they get overwhelmed, by spending too much time around people, they don’t know how that would be possible.
It is an inbred trait for Empaths to want to be of service. And, it is often the case that the more an Empath has suffered the more they want to save others from enduring the same pain. They may look for certain vocations that will help make this possible.
But on my journey, I have come to understand that not all suffering is bad. It is often through suffering that humans evolve, awaken and start looking for a new and better path. Suffering can also be an important rite of passage into spiritual consciousness.
Everyone needs direction and purpose, no matter how evolved they are or how much they have suffered. And it is up to each to seek out that direction individually.
Even as Empaths, we are each unique, and what is right for one Empath is not right for another.
In order to serve their life purpose, many Empaths believe they should be working with others. But because of the getting ‘peopled’ factor, it isn’t always an option.
The truth is, Empaths don’t have to work ‘directly’ with the public to be of service. There are many jobs behind the scenes that don’t involve much ‘people interaction’ that are still being of a huge service.
And besides, Empaths already do more for others than they probably know. For one thing they are great listeners.
People rarely listen. Most are too busy thinking about their own story, or what they want to say next. Empaths do listen and they hear on many different levels. They also care. Simply listening to another is healing for the one being heard.
There are many other ways Empaths help without realising. So do not worry too much if you feel you are not helping others enough. Believe me, you are!
If you work on making yourself a better person you are making the world a better place, and that in itself is a priceless gift.
So getting back to finding your purpose, one of the first steps is to listen to you heart and follow your gut instincts and intuition. But before you can trust your intuitive signals you have to know that you are in balance. The reason I say this is because, when you are out of balance, as an Empath, you will likely suffer with fatigue, overwhelm, stress, anxiety, depression and or low moods, after spending time around people, and your intuitive responses will be heavily muffled or distorted.
Here are just a few common causes of Empath imbalance:
- Leaking energy from the auric field
- Having food or chemical intolerances
- Having underlying health conditions or undiagnosed auto-immune disorders
The above can impact the way an Empath interprets their intuition and how they react around people.
Trying to find purpose, as an Empath, when weakened by physical ailments is difficult. You won’t have the energy or inclination.. But don’t worry they are still ways to get around this. And they are…
- Quiten the mind so you can hear your inner-voice (Click Here)
- Find out if you are leaking energy and prevent it from happening (Click Here)
- Develop your Empath intuition (Click Here)
- Know how to live as an Empath (Click Here)
- Remove all unnecessary stresses from life (Click Here)
Staying in balance, feeling you have reason and purpose, and continually pushing forward (whilst stepping from your comfort zone) will keep you on track as an Empath.
You are meant to enjoy your time here, and feel like you have accomplished something when it is your time to leave. Although you will have many ups and down, you are not meant to continually suffer (with low moods, depression or job dissatisfaction).
Continuous suffering is a call from your soul to make you aware something is not right and changes need to be made.
You were born for a reason. It is a basic human right to have purpose and meaning. And you have the power to make the changes to see this happen.
