Which type empath? Or not an empath at all?
Right here and now, let’s survey all 15 different types of empath. Do you know which kind(s) of empath you are? Knowing that can be so helpful if you’ve been wondering…
Am I An Empath?
If you are, that’s great. I can help you to use your full potential as an empath. A skilled empath!
As an empath coach, teaching the only trademarked system in America to help empaths, I would love for every empath in the world to be skilled. Helping you to learn about your gifts is the start of the skill set I teach, Empath Empowerment®.
Nothing about that empowerment process is hard. It just takes a bit of time, a little patience.
Today, for instance, I’m not going to give you some quick-but-incomplete list. Instead I will introduce you the full list of empath gifts, which means 15 types of empath. Not just 2 or 3 or 5, for heaven’s sake.
You deserve to find out which type or types of empath you are. (And have been since birth.)
Is everybody an empath? No, only 1 in 20 people was born as an empath.
Every Type Empath Has This in Common
FIRST, every empath was born with at least one gift for directly experiencing what it is like to be another person.
That can be a huge deal, a great advantage in life, once the empath has developed skill at using each lifelong talent.
SECOND, no empath was born skilled.
Just born talented. 🙂
Getting skills? That’s up to Lucky Us.
Skills must be learned. And until an empath learns effective skills, unfortunately, that empath will suffer.
But no worries! You can learn more about getting good empath skills at the end of this article. Now let’s get on with our survey, so helpful if you’ve ever wondered, “What kind of empath am I?”
Well, you might be more than one kind of empath. If you have even one type of empath talent, you qualify. Consider yourself an empath!
Empath Type #1. Physical Intuition
With this kind of empath gift, sometimes you are aware of what is happening in someone elses body, e.g., “Joe has a headache.”
Are you trying to know? Nope, you just know.
As a skilled empath, you will be able to help people with your accurate knowledge.
Empath Type #2. Physical Oneness
With this kind of empath gift, the way you receive information is personal. In your body, you feel another persons physical way of being right now, e.g., When with Joe, you develop a headache.
Really, this headache belongs to Joe.
Oboy, is this type of empath gift confusing! However, once you learn the skills of Empath Empowerment, you will be able to help people with the vivid knowledge you receive about what is going on with them physically. Plus… you won’t be either suffering or confused.
Empath Type #3. Intellectual Empath Ability
With this kind of empath gift, you move into someone elses intellectual wavelength, e.g., You might find yourself using longer words than usual while talking to Gladys. Later you realize that Gladys always uses long words.
No this is not mind reading. Simply information. Okay, it’s also potentially valuable information.
As a skilled empath, you can help others by being an expert communicator. If you’re doing any kind of teaching or public speaking, you’ll do an extra-good job because it’s as though you can get inside the other person’s head. In a totally ethical way, of course. 🙂
And imagine how much this empath gift + skill can help you to write a screenplay or negotiate a business deal or perform as a singer or actor or dancer!
Another example: Near the start of every session with a client, I do a Skilled Empath Merge. This helps us improve communication fast.
Since this type of empath gift is one of the ones I was born with — plus I’ve become a skilled empath — Intellectual Empath Ability helps me to notice (and say) what will be most helpful for my client.
Empath Type #4. Emotional Intuition
With this kind of empath gift you are aware of what is happening in somebody elses emotions, even if the other person is hiding some of that. e.g., Joe acts cheerful but feels worried.
As a skilled empath, you will be able to cut through the play-acting and denial. Every empath has talent for finding the truth, you know. Emotional Intuition is very useful if you do any kind of work to help other people to grow emotionally.
Or, hey, if you just want to know what is really going on with your friends, like Joe and Gladys.
If you have Emotional Intuition, you might want to become a skilled empath just so that you can be a better friend to your friends!
Empath Type #5. Emotional Oneness
With this next kind of empath gift you also learn the truth about what is going on with another person’s feelings. Only the knowledge arrives differently than with Emotional INTUITION. With Emotional ONENESS, what happens?
Within YOURSELF… you feel another persons emotions, e.g., You start feeling worried. Really, this worrying is caused by having done an unskilled empath merge with Gladys.
As a skilled empath, you will be able to help your friend Gladys much more effectively than being an unskilled empath.
Definitely, you will have more emotional stability and a stronger sense of yourself.
Empath Type #6. Spiritual Intuition
With this kind of empath gift you have the privilege of experiencing how someone else connects to God, e.g., Going to church along with Joe, you sample the flavor of God being taught by his priest.
And this happens even if you know nothing about Joe’s religion.
As a skilled empath, you will have much greater wisdom and compassion about spiritual life, and the many faces of God.
Empath Type #7. Spiritual Oneness
With this kind of empath gift you have a direct experience of how someone connects to the Divine.
In church with Joe, you will be singing that hymn or whatever and it won’t just be words and a tune. You’ll experience the same kind of inspiration that went into creating that particular hymn.
As a skilled empath, you will grow spiritually in ways that others might envy.
Empath Type #8. Animal Empath
With this kind of empath gift you know what it is like to be a particular animal.
Just yesterday, one empath with this gift described it to me this way:
“Where I live, around this time of year, there are loads of centipedes.
To me, every single centipede is unique. I have never seen two alike.
And if I let myself take the time, I will experience a particular centipede like a big package of information that reaches me in just a split second.”
As a skilled empath, you will be able to help pets and their owners. As for being effective with any work that involves animals, wow!
There are animal lovers. And then there are animal lovers who happen to also have talent and skill as animal empaths. Quite a huge difference….
Empath Type #9. Environmental Empath
With this kind of empath gift, you experience the uniqueness of different landscapes. To you it is not just scenery.
As a skilled empath, you can have such profound experiences of nature. A simple walk among some trees could move you to tears. And yet you feel balanced and stable as a person, even while you’re enjoying.
Empath Type #10. Plant Empath
With this kind of empath gift you know what it is like to be a particular flower or herb or tree.
As a skilled empath, you’ll find this talent so useful for gardening, care of plants, cooking!
And, because you’re skilled (not just talented, but skilled as an empath), guess what? You won’t pay the price of suffering along with tasting the insights.
Empath Type #11. Crystal Empath
With this kind of empath gift you move into the consciousness of a gemstone or semi-precious stone.
As a skilled empath, you can have so much fun with different stones. Even inexpensive jewelry and crystals can become powerful sources of information, inspiration, spiritual exploration.
Empath Type #12. Mechanical Empath
With this kind of empath gift you experience what it is like to be a machine. You sense what it needs. You may be able to fix a machine, even if you don’t have technical knowledge about how to fix that kind of machine. Haha.
As a skilled empath, you will be able to get your money’s worth — and more — from any machines that you use. And what a great advantage you have for learning new technologies, apps, you name it!
You know, there are digital natives and then there are mechanical empaths. Whether digital natives or not, mechanical empaths have great fun with whatever devices they choose to play with.
Empath Type #13. Medical Empath Talent
With this kind of empath gift you can know things, without being told, concerning specifics with somebody elses health.
- As a skilled empath, you will be able to help give support.
- What if you also develop professional skills at acupuncture or nursing or Reiki, etc.? Then your use of those healing skills will be much, much better.
- Ever hear that all empaths are healers? Sorry, but that’s not true. Think about it: Empaths are empaths. You become a healer by learning an effective skill set… as a healer.
If you wish to become a healer, that’s wonderful. You can study so many great kinds of mind-body-spirit healing. So choose what appeals to you.
Just know this: Does any training for a healer automatically include skills for an empath? Not really.
To learn a particular skill set for healing, study with an expert at that kind of healing.
To learn empath skills, study with an empath coach.
Makes sense to me. How about you?
Look, I can’t teach you brain surgery. Trust me, you wouldn’t like it if I tried. I don’t even know where the grey matter is compared to the other colors of matter inside a skull. 😉 However, I have coached empaths who have learned (elsewhere) just about every kind of healing specialty you can imagine.
Among other things, those empath skills help prevent burnout.
Empath Type #14. Empath Talent with Astral Beings
With this kind of empath gift you can have direct experience of one or more types of astral beings, be they flower fairies or angels or ETs.
It is very important to know that Empath Talent with Astral Beings doesn’t mean you “must” become a channeler or medium.
No more than an animal empath must become a veterinarian!
Psychic Empath? That’s Not a Kind of Empath.
Instead, that idea is just a mistake, a confusion.
When empath coaches mix up empath gifts with telepathy or psychic ability, I just cringe. How come?
- Pursuing the paranormal is one optional interest that a person might have, whether a hobby or for professional work.
- Whereas empath gifts are not optional.
- If you have one or more empath gift, you have it for life. So your option about being an empath is whether or not you’ll get skills.
- It can cause loads of problems to assume that being any type of empath is the same thing as being a psychic. It sure isn’t!
- By contrast, if you have Empath Talent with Astral Beings, you’ll could be really good at using the skills of Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) to help yourself and others.
- BTW, more apprentices are definitely needed, because the demand for RES practitioners is growing. In case you’re curious, here is a link to the Mentoring Program in RES.
As a skilled empath, you will can use Empath Talent with Astral Beings for gardening (think flower fairies) or for personal guidance or for using the RES skills of energy healing.
Empath Type #15. Molecular Empath Ability
With this kind of empath gift, even among empaths, you are ultra-perceptive about people.
Please note, this is a pretty rare gift. Technically it’s more than being smart or perceptive or curious.
If you’re a Molecular Empath, you spontaneously experience people at a molecular level. It’s almost like tickling them energetically, which helps them to wake them up spiritually.
As a skilled Molecular Empath, you will be able to help those who wish to grow. And (unlike unskilled empaths), you won’t pay a price for doing this, either.
What Inspired Today’s Article?
A theme we’ve been exploring around here lately is: What does it mean to have a personal presence?
Of course, it’s important to include empaths in any discussion of presence. Because if you were born as an empath, that will automatically be a big part of your presence.
I’m thinking it will take three articles to give you good clarity about your presence as an empath. Consider this article is the first of that short series.
What’s Next for You, as a Talented Empath?
Whatever type(s) of empath you are, please, be smart about it. Don’t just learn about gifts. Get skills. There’s more to gaining powerful skills than calling yourself an “Animal Empath” or whatever.
How can you get good skills? For starters, find a good teacher, a real empath coach who offers more than tips and coping tricks.
Might I recommend that you avoid any empath coach who treats you like a fragile feather?
Personally, I’m a different kind of empath coach, aiming you to bring strength and skills to support your natural sensitivity. Since publishing the first book in English for empaths, this empath coach has taught empaths on every continent.
You can learn a lot about my approach from this blog, including this Top 10 Post for Empaths
Also free, on Facebook I monitor the Facebook Group for Empath Empowerment® Skills. Come join us!
But did you know? No blog post or set of blog post will give a person real skills as an empath. Why not? There’s more to it than reading a few screens.
In my experience, skills that really help empaths aren’t hard to use. In fact, they’re effortless.
The learning does take some time, though. Yes, some personal investment.
Talented Empath, it seems to me that you deserve to give yourself that little bit of investment. Empowerment for an empath can be a life-changing skill set. Empath Empowerment® is a life skill that is so significant, it can improve your quality of life… for the rest of your life… and, once learned, your skills just keep getting better over time.
What is the quickest way to get systematic training in Empath Empowerment? Book 1 of my four-book series for empaths, “Become The Most Important Person in the Room” — whether as an eBook or a paperback.
Talented Empaths, I hope today’s post has helped you. Ask your questions below.
And next post we’ll go into the presence of an unskilled empath. After that I’m planning to complete this short series with an article about the presence of a skilled empath.
