Sometimes we may go beyond just emotional empathy, to actually share someone’s hurt or pain in our body, in our gut. This is a gift given to the healing empath to break through the walls of deep core hurt or trauma. In some cases the memories may be hidden from the mind but the pain is still there in the body. These hurts cannot be healed through traditional therapy which deals only with the mind. They have to be dealt with through the deep feelings and emotions that are embedded in the gut.

The Power of the Empath

I listen; I hear.
I open myself further
to an invasion of my mind,
an invasion of my heart.
I see the hurt.
I can sense it.
My vegus nerve screams out in agony.
A destructive force attacks my body.
I feel the pain.
I now know.
I now understand.

Together we weep
for what is and what is not,
for what was and what was not.
Together we cry for the pain to end.

Then my heart let’s loose its love,
love for life,
love for you,
and together we begin to see the light
and the dark shadows begin to disappear.

Our bodies close the gateway to pain.
The hurt begins to dissipate
under the glow of two hearts
united for a moment in time
beyond the reach of hurt.
We cry.
We hug.
We laugh.
We become part of the universal flow of love
that can only be experienced
by two hearts beating as one.
