From an excellent site – YourZen Growth – Empathy Definition: Importance and Benefits of Practicing Empathy in Everyday Life – “…empathy is having the ability to share another person’s feelings. This trait allows people to connect on more meaningful levels so that people feel understood and respected.”
Empaths have the ability to scan another’s psyche for thoughts and feelings or for past, present, and future life occurrences. Many empaths are unaware of how this actually works, and have long accepted that they were sensitive1 to others.” Empathy and Empaths – by Christel Broederlow is an excellent article worth reading.
Closely tied to empathy is “Holding Sacred Space.” – Mind-map video short.
