Empath's are people who place high on the Empathy Spectrum. Empath's are capable of feeling and sensing what other people's energy is executing in their own bodies.
Can you spot the difference between a regular brain and an Empath brain? Often as Empath's we can tell we are gifted, even without the label of being one. I want to be able to break down the differences between the Empath brain compared to the normal human brain development , so that we can better understand ourselves on a chemical and scientific level.
There are several differences between the normal human brain development and the Empath brain that are intriguing to learn about and to better understand ourselves.
The Mirror Neuron System:
Research has been completed over the years that has came to a conclusion that Empath's have a specialized group of brain cells that are responsible for compassion. In normal human function these cells enable everyone to be able to mirror emotions of others. To be able to feel another's sense of pain, fear, happiness, joy or sadness. As Empath's we have hyper responsive mirror neurons. This allows us to deeply connect and resonate with other people and their feelings. This occurs when mirror neurons are triggered by external events outside of us. To better understand this, here is an example: if you surround yourself with people who are always in a happy and positive mindset, then you will feel happy and positive too. Not only for only because of the topics are light and refreshing, but you are feeling these emotions on their behalf as well. Similar occurrence when you associate yourself with people that are often angry or negative.
. It's important to remember that everything is made up of energy. Everything has it's own energy frequency. The human brain and heart are capable of generating electromagnetic fields. Researchers have said these fields transmit information about people's emotions and thoughts. Empaths are particularly sensitive to this input and can be overwhelmed by it. Empaths have similar occurrences with physical and emotional responses to changes in the electromagnetic fields of the earth and sun. Another example is sometimes Empath's themselves have such a strong energy field that often our electronics cannot keep up with us because our energetic signals we release are so strong that it will physically stop our laptops, televisions or cellphones from working and they can power down. We can also ex
