Are You Too Empathic and Emotionally Sensitive?

holding hands

Hypnotherapy training allows us a tremendous opportunity to heal ourselves and others, yet many students quickly learn that hypnotherapy has a lot to do with our subconscious mind, which is our emotional mind, and when feelings get involved, the entire journey takes on new meaning.  Some people are so deeply empathic that they feel much of what others are feeling.  In every one of our classes, we have at least one student who feels so deeply that is it is hard for them not to experience another person’s pain.  Read more here about how we work with this in our hypnosis training courses…

What does it mean to be empathic?

Empathy is basically the experience of feeling bad when we see another person feeling bad.  We either can feel their pain just because we are very sensitive and/or we find that their pain brings up our own pain.  When we feel sympathy for another person, we feel bad for them when they are feeling bad even though we may have never experienced what they are personally going through.  With empathy, we feel bad because we can relate to what they are going through.  Therefore, while we may say that we only feel their pain, we oftentimes need to look at how their pain is really just showing us our own, and that we have something within us that also needs healing.

Is there a difference between being empathic and being clairsentient?

If we define empathy as feeling bad for someone because we understand their pain, then we can see clairsentience as more of a case where someone is simply extremely sensitive and attuned to other people’s feelings and can feel what others feel regardless of their own personal story.  Clairsentience is more in the category of psychic or intuitive knowing and also can have its own problems, as the one who is this sensitive can feel that they are taking on other peoples’ pain even though it is not their own.  In hypnotherapy training, or within hypnotherapy as a profession, this becomes a problem when the hypnotherapist simply is dealing with too much emotion within themselves one way or another.

What do we do about this?

The best advice was given two-thousand years ago in the statement “Physician, heal thyself.”  When another person’s pain brings up our pain, then we need to understand that the hypnotherapist and the client are both in need of healing.  If we are clairsentient and are simply extremely sensitive to what others feel, then we need to learn how to not take on “other people’s stuff.”  In this case, and in the former case, we need to learn to live and practice our occupation from a professional place of compassion where we still keep our hearts open, yet where we extend love and light, and do not feel the need to protect ourselves.

This topic comes up in all of our classes, and we provide in-depth training on how to work within the realms of feelings, emotions, intuition and an open heart.
