It’s risky to enter the world of a stranger who is experiencing emotional distress. The Empath’s own emotional well-being is always at risk by responding to a soul call. It’s necessary to take precaution to avoid getting dragged into the rescued’s dysfunction. If you are an Empath, it’s essential to be aware of the troubled soul’s fragile emotional state to ensure that you do not get hurt in the process of rendering emotional aid. |
People who are desperate for love will attract the unsuspecting Empath to them. The innocent Empath often pays the price for their kindness. It’s a natural tendency for the person in pain to fall in love with their rescuer. Lines tend to get blurred. The Empath often gets hurt in the process. I have experienced this myself. It’s painful for the Empath to see another person experiencing emotional distress. I have personally been drawn into other people’s suffering this way. I find myself coming out these situations disoriented and wondering what happened.
Many times the person in pain will emotionally attach himself or herself to anyone showing an ounce of compassion. We all want acceptance, validation, and approval. People will go to considerable lengths to get their need for love fulfilled this way. Love is the most powerful emotion. Everyone needs love. We will literally die without it.
Empaths have unconscious reasons for responding to soul calls. It may be something the Empath is missing something in his or her personal life. The Empath should be aware of this tendency before giving emotional support to the person in distress. I suggest giving emotional assistance to those in need by keeping a safe distance until you are confident you can handle the situation.
Many complicated issues can arise out of a soul call event. Intense feelings are always generated between the rescuer and the rescued. Things happen so fast in such a short period of time that it’s difficult for either party to get a proper perspective. Often times, the rescuer ends up getting burnt by the rescued’s fragile emotional state.
I'm sure that there are times when an Empath gets an unconscious sense of control in the soul call relationship. I also feel that both parties may be giving each other the emotional validation they need that is not being met in other area of their lives. This situation is vital to recognize from the start.
It’s important to mention that all Empaths have emotional issues of their own, which is why they are sensitive to other people’s pain. It typically comes about as a result of childhood trauma.
Emotional energy is more powerful than rational thought. Our emotional needs sometimes cloud our rational sense. This situation is not exclusive to Empaths. We all have these confusing feelings from time to time. We have all been in emotional relationships. We need to reflect on what we got out of these impassioned relationships for future reference.
Sometimes the Empath has an emotional reaction to the situation which causes the Empath to distance him or herself from the rescued. This is very normal and completely understandable. It is healthy for the Empath to remove him or herself from the relationship in order to get clarity.
I feel it’s beneficial for the Empath to communicate with the other person about what transpired between them. After a few days, the smoke clears, and both the Empath and the rescued are able to get clarity. This awareness enables them discuss the event rationally without those intense feelings getting in the way. I feel it might even be worthwhile for the two people to talk about what they got out of the experience, and how they might have gained new insight about themselves.
On the other hand, it is not always healthy for the Empath and the rescued to maintain contact. The Empath must use good judgment in deciding whether to continue communicating with the person.
It’s necessary to maintain boundaries with people. I think that’s a good policy for all Empaths. I mentioned staying at arm’s length until an Empath feels he or she can handle the situation. If you are an Empath, it is absolutely essential that you learn assertiveness. This is necessary in order perform your unique role in the spiritual growth of humanity. The emotions generated in a rescue will overwhelm you. Soul calls are inherently dramatic, which can make it difficult to exercise emotional protection practices.
The love an Empath provides is of a different quality than all other kinds of love. It is genuine, nonjudgmental, and unconditional. It is the purest form of love. The Empath expresses divine healing to those who are emotionally suffering.
