As an Empath/Spiritually in-tuned person can see and feel another's vibrations and when they are telling the truth, lying, deceiving, etc., what do we do with this information?
When confronting another (as an Empath), that other person gets defensive and may verbally attack the one telling them what they see/feel.
Also, others are blind and believe the lie joining in the verbal attack. I have always 'told it like it is' and don't 'beat around the bush' when I see something and don't keep it to myself but tell the person what I see/feel.
This angers them and others and puts me on the 'she's crazy' side of life, by other's opinions. I have been through this scenario many times. Maybe I should not be telling them what I see but I am getting this information about another for a reason.
Maybe the way I am telling it is out of my own anger issues and not in a loving, assertive manner and I cannot see this.
I believe being Empathic is only being in-tune to other's on a Spiritual level. Thank you
Nothing at all :)
There's a basic idea in these spiritual subjects that you don't answer questions that haven't been asked.
Ignoring that idea tends to lead to an unpleasant experience for all concerned :) Been there, done that, many times in my life and I've learned not to do it any more.
Any vibrationally-sensitive person is going to pick up on things that others may not want them to know about. I tend to view such things as a valuable exercise in learning to keep my big mouth shut :)
Of course, there will be times when someone doesn't even know they could ask you a question (especially when you keep your "interests" well hidden). In those cases, you can consider a strong inspiration to say something to them from a good feeling place as a question that has been asked...and which you can then answer in whatever way feels appropriate to you.
to the question How does and empath deal with other.simple like any other one. the only difference is that he as more information, and since many people are blind being lead by blind. it does not give that empath that know what is in their heart and mind any reason to trust him self to them. why would a empath need to confront any one? waste of time for the empath. if he all ready know that the other person seek confrontation what ever he is going to say can lead to confrontation so better to stay far or silent at least he will not get caught in the other person internal and external storm. you see First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean. if you go to someone house and he gives you dirty cup and dish are you responsable of it are is the person that is receiving you responsible of is own stuff? or maybe your question would be do I tell him that is cup is dirty even if he does not see or want to see it. you can try but if you all ready know that it will give nothing then do not drink from is cup and drink from your own. doing this you will have clean water if your cup is clean or at least clean enough for you. as for those that join in to show that they are like other or better then other and do worse then them, they are not better then any one. if they want to fool them self and stay in ignorance it is their choice. nothing new under the sun.
since you say you anger can you say that your cup is clean?
Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.
Do not let your hearts be troubled.
Let there be light, be the light that you can be, experience and enjoy.
I think I am kinda-sorta an empath-type person - but I have always experienced it as a difficulty, as an inability (for a long time) to disentangle "how I feel" from "how other people feel" - only recently has it even become apparent to me that maybe other people don't feel this way all the time.
I don't really think that I should tell the other person what I am intuiting about their emotional state. The times I have, in anger, told someone what I sensed about them, I did it as an act of aggression. It made me feel pretty bad afterward, because I think it can be really painful to have someone zoom in from the outside like "You're only saying that because you fear that you'll be alone all your life because you are fundamentally unlovable". And I don't want to go around spreading pain, if only because that feels bad to me, and I don't want to feel bad. So mostly I keep it to myself. The more I do my own developmental work, the more I also understand that:
*when I am vibrationally aligned, I don't see people as broken (because Source doesn't see anyone as broken). So if I see people as broken and in need of my help (or correction?), it's a sign that I'm not in alignment.
*it's really none of my business what other people are doing. And I only feel that it is my business - that they are intruding into my reality with their nonsense or pain or whatever - when I'm out of alignment. So I guess that's really the same as the above, you know?
It's not my work to fix people, and they can't actually jump into my reality, so when those things feel real, I know I'm not in alignment, and it's a good time to close my mouth and disengage and go do something else if possible. (A work in progress for me.)
@Stingray says above that he has learned "not to answer questions nobody is asking", which is something I have learned/am learning (another work in progress) in other arenas. I've noticed this with children: "teaching" children things they haven't asked for is nearly pointless, you only get it into their heads with repetition and haranguing. But a child who wants to know something will grasp it and have it forever within minutes. Totally different ballgame.
It's hard to remember that other people are not our business. But.... other people are not our business!
