The ability to understand the feelings and experiences of others through their perspectives is known as empathy. Empaths are those who are always affected by other’s people energies and they are the only ones who can truly understand what others feel.
Empathy requires deep intuition. It is something more than just being sensitive. It requires you to be able to feel the physical sensitivity and spiritual urges of others and to determine their intentions and motivations. You cannot become an empath, because it is an innate quality.
Empathic people are extremely sensitive and they can physically experience the other people’s pain and even manifest symptoms of their illnesses. They are also subjected to unexplained aches, pains and chronic fatigue.
The gift of being an empath is commonly misunderstood and that’s why many empaths are often labeled as hypochondriacs, since they frequently get ill.
They have an exceptional ability to peer into other people’s thoughts in order to determine their intentions. They can also read the body language of others, which empowers them to understand what other people are going through.
There are different levels of being an empath. The highest one is called Heyoka.
It is a Native American word which means ″a fool″ or a ″sacred clown″. This term is mostly used to refer to those people who are ″emotional mirrors″ to others. Heyoka-empaths highlight the weaknesses and faults of others and at the same time show them how to deal with their flaws.
They are either born breech or have dyslexia – (ability to think backwards). Moreover, they look younger than their real age.
These people usually receive adverse reactions for their gifts. However, these reactions generally aim at something good. Heyokas always have good intentions and their primary motive is to help those around them.
If you feel unhappy or angry after having spent some time with a Heyoka person it is probably because they have been highlighting those qualities in you. On the other hand, if you feel loved and if you had a sense of acceptance after being with Heyokas, it indicates that they wanted you to accept and love yourself for who you are.
Heyokas are your emotional mirror and they are supposed to help you to discover and learn how to appreciate the part of yourself which you believed it didn’t exist.
It seems easy to disregard and run away from this experience, but actually heyokas try to help you to get control of the problems or weaknesses you are struggling with. They are guiding you in your journey because they can feel both your pain and joy.
The best way to benefit from this experience is to accept Heyokas with an open heart and open mind and make sure you use the reflections to build yourself and grow.
The energy of Heyokas is firm and high, and they are beyond the general wisdom. If you are going through a period when you don’t know what do or how you feel, Heyokas may heal you and help you to overcome that. So, embrace their gift and use it to grow and become a better person.
