Both beings experience life through an enhanced lens. Both Beings know the pain and joy of others. However, being an empath is not the umbrella term that it’s become. Many people will find a top ten list on a psychic blog and immediately identify as an empath when they’re actually HSP. This can be a dangerous misconception as the techniques for development and protection are very different.
- While you both experience intense waves of emotions, an HSP may just feel the overall sensation that the emotion brings without a specific source. An empath will begin to miss a relative that may not have ever known when in the presence of those grieving, an HSP may still feel this deep sadness, but will not be able attach the sadness to a person, place or thing.
- You both may experience the physical sensations of an emotion, but an empath will experience the same exact physical sensations that the people around them are experiencing. If an empath is around someone experiencing nausea, they will pick up a mirror image of this person’s nausea, while an HSP will experience more of a sympathetic nausea that they can take ownership of.
- Both are a desirable resource for dark forces not of the divine, empath’s are at risk more for different forms of possession. Without the understanding that a thought or intention might not belong to them, they may act on dangerous impulses without knowing who’s really pulling the strings. HSPs are more at risk for personal attacks that may back them into the corner and keep them in fear, preventing them from carrying out their divine mission.
It’s important to know which category you fall in, because while the practices of shielding, clearing, and sending healing energy may be the same, the intention is different. An Empath must learn to become firm in their own energy to make sure they don’t mistake others emotions for their own. The intention an empath must hold is the ability to know oneself 100%. An HSP must hold the intention of holding a repellent from psychic attack, as well as the ability to quickly and easily clear their energy in case of an intrusion. Both beautiful light workers must loves themselves and others at all costs. Your ability to love and understand beyond your own form is a gift the world needs.
