For those who do not know, there are different kinds of empaths. While these are more often just referred to as empaths when you break down their categories their true gifts are highlighted much deeper.
The type of empath we’re going to go over today is the Earth Empath. The Earth Empath is an amazing being who has a very deep connection with nature and truly feels at home when his/her feet are on the ground bare. Earth Empaths are highly sensitive to the pains this planet is feeling but are also as any empath able to feel and absorb the things people are facing as well.
One of the most amazing things I’ve noticed about Earth Empaths is their ability to help heal this planet. They are always working to change frequencies and raise vibrations. Through their actions, they are collectively making a difference in this world. They help animals, raise plants, and overall use the intimate relationship they have with Mother Earth to do good in this world.
Judith Orloff has written as follows on the power of being an Earth Empath:
Earth empaths are a special type of empath who is keenly attuned to the natural world and all of the Earth’s changes. The beauty of a waterfall can exhilarate and energize these empaths, whereas the toxicity of air pollutants can make them feel sick, exhausted, or depressed. How do you know if you are an Earth empath? You are highly sensitive to intuiting the Earth’s changes in your body. Sensually and energetically, you can feel the power of a thunderstorm, the loveliness of the moon, the warmth of the sun on your shoulders. What happens to the Earth is intimately connected to your body. The beauty and health of the Earth nourishes and sustains you. The ocean and tides affect everyone, but especially you. The moon and the tide regulate menstrual cycles in women and sleep-wake cycles for both genders. You are sensitive to weather changes and the amount of daylight. Earth empaths may experience Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), becoming depressed in the winter when the days are shorter.
You see, Earth Empaths unlike most are more nature-needing. When they’re feeling down instead of just going into their room to cry and cleanse their beings they would much rather go sit in the woods or walk through a proper forest. For them, this is their release. They are also especially susceptible to the toxicities this world has to offer. Things like air pollutants and so forth really affect them more than they may others.
It also really seems like Earth Empaths are able to feel major shifts within our planet, for instance, when something big is going to happen they may be aware of it. Holding this gift high and really letting it shine can be hard and even scary for some but those who do it are true angels. They are the ones really pushing through and fighting to make this planet a place full of love and kindness.
If you have an Earth Empath in your life, thank him/her for the things they do in the dark that you cannot see. They are always fighting whether you can see it or not. The battles they face are more than most could imagine.
