I see you. Being an empath is an incredible gift, empaths will lead this society back to unity by feeling no difference between themselves and others and powerfully acting in that knowing. They will remind people who have forgotten that we are all one through their presence and conviction. The perspective of an empath represents the interconnectedness and the oneness of the divine at its core. Empaths directly experience this through their ability to enmesh.
In order to have our energy flowing properly to contribute to the collective in this way (as unifiers) we must begin with boundaries, self love and fearless exploration of our purpose in this life. When we have this centred focus we begin using our abilities instead of being subject to them. Empaths need to be dedicated to the subtleties of their energy and self expression to remain balanced.
To be specific, watch that in conversations you do not get pulled into others perspectives and realities, anchor your consciousness in your own being first. Speak from your heart and personal perspective first and blend with their perspective after you are grounded. Not doing so will cause upset in your system, let go of the desire to harmonize by hiding yourself. Create boundaries in relationships when your gut instinct tells you that there is an imbalance or toxicity, worth while people will respect you (or even be intrigued) by this shift. Do what you love every day no matter that, your joy indicates your true soul identity which is vital for you to reference so you do not lose yourself.
Good talk! Keep going.
