Those with a high degree of emotional intuition, often share common characteristics. Most are highly sensitive and empathetic, especially with those who are in pain or suffering in some way. With a desire to support, help and be of service to others, they may believe that love can heal all. It is not surprising that those with a high degree of emotional intuition also tend to be emotionally intelligent. Common traits of emotional intelligence include such thing as the ability to be aware of, communicate, and express emotions, as well as the ability to skillfully help others to process their emotions. An emotional intuitive may not only feel another’s emotions, they are also able to lighten another’s emotional stress and worries through a kind of emotional psychic intervention. They often do this unknowingly by sending pure waves of unconditional healing love energy to those who they intuit are in need.
The raw openness through which those with a high degree of emotional intuition intuit, can leave them feeling vulnerable and overly sensitive. Stressful environments, disagreements, witnessing another’s suffering or being in the midst of angry or unhappy people, can leave them feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. Many emotional intuitives have no inner shield or protective boundary and unknowingly feel and intuit both positive and toxic emotional energy, often to their determent.
Due to the magnitude and volume of emotions that an emotional intuitive absorbs and feels, many suffer from free floating stress and anxiety. Because of this, some withdraw from social interactions or situations in an attempt to avoid emotional overload. However because they are intuitively connected to emotional energy, this is rarely effective. Even when sitting alone in a room, they can still absorb the emotional energy of others or situations. Some emotional intuitives unconsciously harden their hearts in an attempt to protect themselves or intuitively try to shut off their emotional receptivity. When the pain, grief and stress of others and the world becomes too much to bear, they attempt to shield themselves by withdrawing and closing their heart. However this is not an effective solution and often creates a sense of inner emptiness and unhealthy detachment. An emotional intuitive needs the vibrations of love almost as much as they need oxygen to survive. When they close their heart, they can no longer feel and benefit from the rich waves of pure love that flow through them.
Day to day life for those with a primary and innate mode of intuiting through their emotions, may at times feel like an emotional roller coster. If you have a high degree of emotional intuition, you may not be aware of the degree to which you intuit another’s emotional energy. Because you were born with this innate sensitivity, you may not always be able to distinguish your own feelings from the feelings that you have absorbed from others. When young, many emotional intuitives become the emotional barometer for the family and unconsciously try to balance and harmonize the emotional energy within the home. They may be viewed as over sensitive and moody and may express the bottled up and repressed emotions of other family members.
While our self-generated emotions and feelings can help us to increase our self awareness and make good decisions and choice, emotions that have been absorbed from others are not as beneficial. We cannot process and gain personal insight from intuited emotions. While they can help us to understand and develop our intuition, intuited emotions do not provide us with insight into personal preferences, issues and needs.
Once you become aware of your emotions and feelings and the emotional energy that you are absorbing from others and the environment, you can release and let go of those emotions that are creating stress or are toxic to your mind, body and spirit. As you do this, it becomes easier to tune into the intuitive heart where calming, healing and insightful wisdom resides.
