As we already know empaths experience a lot of things differently than the rest of the world. They are more in tune with the world of spirits and in ways that most of us cannot begin to fathom.
While most empaths are aware of their gifts, they do not all know how to properly use them or what all they entail. Their sensitivity can present itself in different ways and this is something they all need to be as aware of as possible. While they are able to absorb the emotions of others and take them on as their own, there is a lot more to it than just that.
Empaths also often have quite detailed spiritually inclined dreams. They see signs and find meaning in their dreams that normal people would never think twice about. Their dreams are very detailed and often overpower them. While some dreams might be positive, they are not all that way.
Empaths dream in a more lucid state than other people do. They use their dreams as a means of dealing with the emotions at hand but also to help them progress on their journey. Empaths are offered help when they are asleep in a sense, and they are brought guidance and healing. The things they find in their dreams help them to overcome the difficult emotions before them.
While we all perceive our own dreams in our own ways, they are often for the empath linked with past or future experiences. The visions that an empath might see with his or her eyes closed can be overwhelming, but they really do push them towards where they need to be. Everything they feel is on an intense level and while good dreams are easier to face they must still face the bad ones as well.
If you are an empath and you feel as though the dreams you have are normal, compare them to the dreams of someone else, you will learn quickly that they stand out. As someone who has had some pretty wild dreams in the past, I can assure you they are nothing compared to what the empath is facing.
