Do you ever feel like you have a heightened sense of understanding and emotion for other people’s feelings?
Maybe you feel like you are really good at reading people or you simply have an inclination toward being empathic.
If so, you might be an intuitive empath.
Being an intuitive empath means you have a high sensory perception and can be impacted by other people’s energies.
You have an innate ability to perceive those around you.
But, being an empath is more than just being an especially sensitive person, and it isn’t limited to simply feeling and expressing emotions.
What Does It Mean to Be an Intuitive?
When someone is intuitive, they possess insight into someone or a situation without using cognitive abilities. They have a feeling of understanding or knowing something without using rational thought that’s typically involved in this knowledge.
It is often said that empaths are naturally intuitive, and while this is true for some empaths, it is not true for all. But, if someone is intuitive, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they have a lot of empathy. Some believe the words are interchangeable, but the two abilities are actually quite different.
Empathy is one’s concern with things other than oneself — the external world. It is the ability to sense the feelings and energy of other people and one’s surroundings.
However, intuition is the internal feeling one has to evaluate and understand a situation. While it still involves absorbing the outside world, the final component is very internal.
When empathy and intuition come together, a very unique ability is born, and those who hold this trait have a special gift.
