My partner and I have been reading a lot about "Empaths" recently (here is just a quick easy explanation of what I am referring to, if not the most academic source: http://themindunleashed.org/2013/10/30-traits-of-empath.html ). We both believe that we are absolutely empaths and it offers a lot of explanation as far as the way we operate. I was just curious to see if anyone else here knows much about "Empaths," and perhaps if there is a karmic link of some sort? Perhaps it is an "old soul" phenomenon? Any thoughts would be appreciated!
