Once you understand that emotional sensitivity is a super power and you care for yourself and your emotions, you then tap into what it can do for you. You can FEEL when something is off, you can use your body and emotions as a type of litmus test of move towards and move away.
You learn to tap into your own intuition and soul that will speak to you and guide you each moment in a kind of KNOWING what is the next right step.
It's a magic compass and it's yours.
You were designed to navigate the world this way.
We rely so much on the brain but the brain can only take us so far. It is subject to its limited programming and experiences.
When we want to stretch past ourselves it requires feeling our way through things and in this arena Empaths have a leg up. But not if they are overwhelmed by too much emotion or are self shredding themselves for being this way.
