If you are an Empath you have probably had at least one morphing experience. Some of you may experience it on a daily basis.
For the purpose of this post, I shall liken Empath morphing to having an encounter with a boggart… You would have to be familiar with Harry Potter to understand where I am going with this.
In the Harry Potter books a boggart is described as a shape-shifting non-being that takes on the form of the viewer’s worst fear.
So what does this have to do with an Empath you might ask?
Well, there are some Empaths who act like a boggart, but rather than shifting their shape they shift their behaviour to fit in with the onlooker’s assumptions. They unconsciously morph their personality traits to fit the profile of another person’s beliefs.
Many Empaths are misread and wrongly interpreted by others. Which is fine, many people are. But, unlike others, the Empath can subconsciously pick up on how another wants or expects them to be.
Let me explain further:
When someone has a strong opinion of who they ‘believe’ you to be they mold it into a vibrant mental picture. Because an Empath inadvertently reads other people’s beliefs, and take them on, they may unintentionally morph their personality to fit the shape of these mental impressions.
How does it work and what does it feel like?
When an Empath starts morphing, their behaviour changes: They talk in ways not typical of their usual dialogue, they feel different and sense they are acting out-of-character but cannot shake off this assumed personality.
Even when aware they are portraying a manifestation of another’s beliefs, they feel unable to step away from the foreign traits they are exposing.
Most Empaths are familiar with picking up, and acting out, other people’s personality traits. They easily rub off on them. But, during a personality-shifting episode, the Empath parades the behaviors of what the other ‘believes’ they own.
Time spent in the presence of those who see them in a less-than-cheery way, creates a short transitional period for the Empath, as they act out the attributes befitted to them. These traits are a far cry from their true personality, but for a time, whilst in the other’s company, they become imprinted.
When no longer in said person’s presence the Empath may be left scratching their head as to why they acted in such a way, especially after they tried to be their true-self and not the fictitious oddity of a character they portrayed.
The positive side
It may seem I have painted a negative picture of how Empath morphing looks. But there is also a positive aspect that can transpire during time spent with those who hold the Empath in high regard.
For example: those who see the Empath in a good light, who understand their traits and see only positive qualities in them, will generate an uplifting morphing episode.
When this happens the Empath experiences an inner-power-surge and their positive personality traits start to glow. Their confidence and an inner-strength elevates and their spirit sparkles.
Although morphing may sound a tad ‘out there’, it is just another quirky trait of the Empath. It also shows how easily influenced Empaths are by the suggestions of other people’s energy.
Morphing is simply another aspect of energy transferral. Empaths can be manipulated by powerful energy, such as strong emotion, opinions and ideas, and this is no different.
When they find Empath balance, or just become aware of their abilities, morphing becomes easier to recognize and control, as does controlling any type of external influence.
