Finding my purpose
Updated: May 16, 2020
I don't pretend to have any magical powers to read your mind, but what I do have is a God-given ability to understand people, what they like, their behaviors, and reasons for doing what they do.
Before I get started I'd like to share a new term with you called an #Empath. Have you heard of this before today? Well, I've always had this sensing capability, but didn't quite understand how it worked or what it was called. It was the ability to do so that lead me to research what it means and why it draws certain people towards me. According to Psychalive, Empaths are highly sensitive individuals, who have a keen ability to sense what people around them are thinking and feeling. Psychologists may use the term empath to describe a person that experiences a great deal of empathy, often to the point of taking on the pain of others at their own expense. There are different types of empaths, many empaths like me can survey the mood or energy in the room and without a person telling us, we know what's wrong. For some #empaths that emotion can cause them to physically feel sick and drain them.
We'll come back to the topic of an #empath after I share how other experiences sharpened these skills mentioned above. I've always been fascinated by human behavior, family dynamics and analyzing the reasons behind people's actions to form conclusions. I spent twelve years working in human services helping families to facilitate supervised visits, watching family interactions for ensuring the child(ren) safety and studying the behaviors of people's motivations for why they display certain behaviors. All of these experiences coupled with my #empath abilities allowed me to develop what someone told me is my superpower, providing insight support and giving customized advice.
While I enjoy sharing this ability with those who seek it, I have learned to be cautious because there are some people who are addicted to their familiar pain and the cycle of endorphins released by that familiar pain. So, it is for that reason that I offer this ability as a service for those who meet a certain criteria. If you or someone you know is looking to find their gifts or better understand their current situation, please share this blog with them. Provided that they meet the criteria checklist, they may benefit from a few online sessions with me and can begin helping others and repeat the favor.
