Empathy and Being Empathetic

Sept. 22, 2013


Several of you emailed and asked for more information about empathy and being empathetic.


Empathy is the ability to read and understand people.  Empaths sense the truth of how a human and, sometimes animals, really feel.  Empaths know when someone is lying.  They can sense the true motivations of someone’s behavior.   They know when someone is offering constructive support, and when someone’s purpose is to destroy.

As with most human traits, all of us are empathetic; some of us allow this trait to come through weakly, barely even acknowledging its existence; others allow their empathetic ability to be very strong.

Dictionaries usually define empathy as compassion, consideration and deep understanding of others.  In actuality, these traits are the results of empathetic ability.

I am asking that all of us strengthen our empathetic ability and that all of us put our empathy trait to good use as we protect this new way of life we have brought into the world.


In this present time, the great majority of us are exposed to a steady stream of data.  Time and time again, all of us have been mislead, lied to and manipulated to take actions we would normally refuse to even remotely consider.

Often, we have been fed false information by those we trusted and by those to whom we gave dominion over us.

We now have an added responsibility:  we must protect, nurture and support this new thing, this new way of life, this new being we have brought, are bringing or have an intense desire to bring into the world.

We need our empathetic ability to help us meet this new responsibility.  The fact is that not everyone supports us, or the new thing we are birthing and protecting.

Observe Syria and other societies that have or are attempting to bring forth something new: not everyone in these societies welcomes this new idea.   Strong empathetic ability would help the people of these societies identify who to trust and who to beware of.

Realizing this, we turn, again, to the angels for help.

Request to the angels

I speak to the angels for all of us.

Angels of all of us,

Thus is Rev. Barbara.  I speak for all of us on the planet Earth who desire a planet where all enjoy health, prosperity and friendship; and where all can grow and expand the talents, gifts, skills Life gave to us; where all of us can achieve the calling that has been placed on our life.

I speak for all of us who now know that being an empath is a gift from God, that all of us were given this gift and that this gift can be a very powerful force for the good.

Angels of all of us, we recognize the gift of empathetic ability.  We know this ability is real, that it exists and that it’s true.  We know that each of us has this gift.  As with all spiritual gifts, it exists inside of us.  We already have it; it has and will always be.

Angels of all of us, we ask for guidance to bring this gift to our physical world.  We believe this gift will help us make good choices.  We receive this gift now.  We receive the gift of being our true Self now; this Self includes strong empathetic ability.

We are grateful for a way to know the truth when we hear it.

Therefore, angels of all of us, please help us know when our empathetic ability is giving us information and guidance.  Help us to accept the data it’s providing.  Please guide us in whatever way we receive clear, focused, understandable communication from you.

We know that accepting and using empathetic gifts helps us become stronger, more powerful healers.  For we know, that when we heal the Self, our world, also, heals.

Thank you, angels of all of us; thank you for helping us.

Peace to all,

Rev. Barbara
