“What are you going to do with it?” Honestly, the question took me by surprise. I thought, “Well I don’t have to do anything with it.” Immediately followed by, “do I?”
The question stayed with me and settled on my heart for awhile. It was posed by someone who I consider a healer. I trusted that an answer would find me. It did. My path gradually took shape and then became clear. I will write. I will write a Facebook page and a blog. My guiding principle will be what I know to be true, and what I have made the tagline for my endeavors. The light in me recognizes the light in you.
Full disclosure – I am an empath. I have lived my life with a certain intensity and compassion. I know because I feel from my heart. That is where my intuition lies. However, until last year, I had not heard this word – empath. It came to me internally in one bold lettered word. Empath. And I thought, what is that? It appeared so clearly that I realized I needed to find out what it meant. The same evening, I was able to find information. I was reading about myself. How I have always been. The word empath gave me a framework and the words to describe how I exist in the world. It was truly an A-ha moment, and I am thankful for it.
So dear reader, my plan is to add some insight and interest from the lens of an empath. I offer some stories and reflections. And most of all, I encourage you to nurture your own inner light.
