Empathy, Intuition and Vibes: What Do They Mean?

Empathy and intuition are powerful components of the human brain….. We all have them in some degree but are often confused and conflicted by seemingly contradictory feelings….Empathy is the ability to really feel the other persons emotional energy, or vibes….Intuition is that certain recognition of what to do with this knowledge….I can tell within 5 minutes of meeting a person if I am going to like them or not…I have always had this ability, and it has always proven true in my life…

Some scientists estimate that we use only 10% of our minds most of the time, although there are other debunkers and scientific trash talkers who dispute this fact…But science has never been able to accurately measure emotions…How could they? The truth is that most people DO only use a small part of their brain for everyday functions, such as driving, cooking, eating, going to work or school etc….The other part of their brains lay dormant, unused and often overlooked or when these feelings come up they are just dismissed outright as crazy thoughts or silly notions…

Empathy can be a double edged sword, because if you are truly blessed with the gift of empathy, and not everybody is, you can feel the other person’s emotional vibrations to the point of feeling their pain and anguish, their sorrows and misgivings, as well as their joy and happiness, their euphoria and ecstasy…

You are as one with them, not in a telepathic literal ability to “read your mind” sense but in an emotional sensitivity that transcends most ordinary human interactions….In other words, “you get them” and hopefully they “get” you too….

It is an ideal situation if you are empathetic with your loved ones and your life partner, because then you are truly blessed, and you can live a life of harmonious balance…

It may be just a glance, a touch of a hand, a sigh, a whisper, but you are instantly attuned to your loved one, you feel what they feel, you know what they know, what they are thinking, you can anticipate their wants and fulfill their needs without them actually saying a word….If your partner and loved one share your gift of empathy, you are guaranteed a happy, successful life….

On the other hand, it can also be a curse and a burden to walk into a room, or a crowded elevator, or a packed subway, or a crowded street and be almost overwhelmed by the outpouring of grief, anger and hatred that most people manage to keep bottled up inside of themselves most of their lives…

The vibrations, or “vibes” you feel in such situations can literally take your breath away, they are energy suckers, often without even knowing it…. Of course these people are doomed to live miserable lives, but since they are not truly in touch with their feelings, or have just given up and don’t care,they never realize it until it is too late to do anything about it…

According to my Google sources, “Empathy is the ability to see the world as another person, to share and understand another person’s feelings, needs, concerns and/or emotional state:” Find more information at: http://www.skillsyouneed.com/ips/empathy.html#ixzz3hPOoHVuB….Empathy is a selfless act that enables us to learn more about people and relationships with people – it is a desirable skill beneficial to ourselves, others and society.   Phrases such as ‘being in your shoes’ and ‘soul mates’ imply empathy. Empathy has even been likened to a spiritual or religious state of connection with another person or group of people. If this interests you, find more at: http://www.skillsyouneed.com/ips/empathy.html#ixzz3hPPv33SF…..

According to these Google sources, Intuition can be defined in the dictionary as: “The need to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.” And also, “Intuition is a process that gives us the ability to know something directly without analytic reasoning, bridging the gap between the conscious and non conscious parts of our mind, and also between instinct and reason.”

Or, to define it further, intuition is a sub conscious, non logical part of our brain: “The conscious is an expert at logic and will use it relentlessly. Conversely, the unconscious mind searches through the past, present, and future and connects with hunches and feelings in a nonlinear way. Its process is cryptic to the logical mind, as it defies the conventional laws of time and space.”

There you have it! Utilizing those parts of our brain that most people are either unaware of or deny or suppress is the key to being empathetic, the ability to be intuitive, the recognition of “picking up the vibes” that other people are transmitting daily every minute of every hour of every day…Most people are not even aware that they are broadcasting their thoughts, but I have always found it very uncomfortable, s noted above, to be in a packed elevator in a high rise, a crowded subway or sidewalk just and be bombarded, almost overwhelmed by all these vibes in such a small, confined area…

But it is this basic knowledge, this certainty that in itself defies scientific analysis, because by definition empathy and intuition are not objective, not measured on a result based system for scientists to observe and record, but rather an unconscious summary of all that we know, feel and observe on almost a psychic level, all the knowledge about the person we are talking or interacting with at the time…

So to summarize, if we have the gift of empathy and intuition, we are blessed and cursed at the same time….We can really feel and share another persons emotions, their griefs and sorrow, their joy and elation, and often we can help them find their way through a path of seemingly contradictory (to them) emotions…We can help them traverse the emotional minefields and self destructive behavior they would otherwise blunder into, and enrich both them and ourselves at the same time…

If you have the gift of empathy, if you trust your intuition, if you are skilful enough and aware enough to pick up other people’s vibes, you can count yourself as blessed, because you have both the inner knowledge to help them and the responsibility that comes with it…

Use your knowledge wisely….You were given these gifts for a reason…

Just leave it like it is right now
