Being an empath does not only mean you are just highly sensitive to the sentiments of others; no, this is just one element of being an empath. If you are an empath, you can also perceive physical sensitivities as well as the spiritual urges of all those around you.
Empaths have an innate ability to sense and feel the energies of everything and everyone around them. This ability can be heightened from the very start or it can be developed as they grow.
If you are an empath, you quickly feel the energy of a person in a room even when such a person is not in the room. Empathy is not a trait you learn or acquire; it is something you are born with.
As an empath, not only can you sense the energies of the living, you also have the ability to feel the energy or spirit of those no longer in the realm of the living. You are sensitive to energy and not human bodies. The energies of the dead still linger on in the world even when their bodies decompose. This is why you can feel the energy of the dead.
Moreover, some empaths can feel as well as view the spirits too. There are different sorts of empaths: some have a more sensory perception of energy while others can perceive spirits and energies through auditory and visual processes too, meaning they can hear and see spirits too.
If you have ever felt the presences and spirits of those around you, whether you were in a cemetery or otherwise, it is because you are an empath.
