Part of the Life Purpose for Empaths is to serve, guide, heal and help others; no matter what they are doing, an empath desires doing these things for other people. There is an ever increasing number of these sensitive souls incarnating over the last several decades due to a huge energy shift and awakening on our planet. These are time of serious change and many old patterns of behavior are falling away; but there is an excess of negative energy occurring as part of this process. Empaths help to transmute that energy and lead others to the higher levels of vibration and consciousness that they naturally embrace. Part of the Empath’s Purpose is to help with this shift and lead the world, by example, to a more loving, balanced and peaceful state. All of this being said, it’s important to note that Empaths are not any more special than any other person at all, our souls have simply chosen a different path than most (but it doesn’t make it better than any other; that is ego based thinking). While the Empath’s purpose is important right now, so are all others; because it all combines into the wholeness of what is, and that oneness is exactly what needs to be understood (we are all one, not separate but part of the whole).
