When we take a look at a list of attributes and use them as a label. This is just for comparison. I think aura were the big thing in the sixties.
Anyway, this is a list of aura attributes for crystal. After reading the list, would you be inclined to think that now you are an empath-crystal? or
maybe an empath-blue or whatever?
My point is that when we apply a label to characteristics, We take away the unique quality of the individual. We think, "Oh. an empath" and move on.
When we use the label, we may be prone to assumptions. Seems apparent on this thread, that even after reading the starting post, that many people have
differing ideas about what an empath is?
Delicate, extremely sensitive, reserved, serene, quiet, spiritual, enjoy spending time alone
Get along with everyone; they can take on the aura color of whomever they are with
When centered, they are natural, receptive conduits for pure, healing energy
When uncentered, they can easily feel befuddled, disoriented, and psychically overwhelmed by other people’s energy. They then feel the need to
withdraw from life to replenish themselves
Uncentered, they tend to lack self-confidence and look for reassurance/approval from others
Enjoy gardening, being in nature, reading and/or other solitary activities
Like their immediate environment to be pretty, quiet, clean, orderly, and simple
Very quick thinkers and learners; extremely intuitive
Prefer to stay in the background (out of the limelight); not driven or ambitious
Love pondering the meaning of life; usually have a personal relationship with a Higher Power
In relationships can appear cold, aloof and frigid because they need so much time alone; they are very private
Conversely, they can have a calming, healing effect on their partner when centered
Like partners who are decisive and protective yet patient, allowing and unintimidating
Can remain single for a long time because of potential trauma of a strong emotional connection
As parents, Crystals have a low threshold for confusion, noise, disorder and are easily overwhelmed
Cautious, conscientious and responsible with money because it provides security
Famous Examples: Hildegaard Von Bingen and Louis Pasteur
