The psychic empath has an intuitive understanding of others and the natural world that goes much further. People are born with this ability, however, it can grow and develop with experience. Many people do not realize they are psychic empaths until later in life.
This ability is not the same as the normal human ability to feel empathy for other people. People relate to another’s emotions, with empathy but they do not feel them as a psychic empath does. In addition, the extent of the information that the psychic empath can receive from others extends to beyond just basic feelings such as happiness or sadness. It may include a much broader spectrum of information.
Psychic empaths feel the world around them in strong emotional terms. Psychic empath is like having an extra sense: one that allows you to feel the emotional impact of the people, animals and even plants around you.
Psychic empaths have a variety of skills and they may use just one or all of the different psychic gifts. If you recognize yourself as having any of the following abilities, you are probably a psychic empath.

You will receive some information as who the owner is/was, the events of their life and even the emotions they experienced while wearing or using the object.

This skill is often used to detect water underground or recognize when very bad weather or some other form of natural disaster is coming. Many animals also have this ability, which is why they always know to run to high ground before a tsunami or flash flood.
6. Medium Empath
A medium uses his or her psychic or intuitive abilities to see the past, present and future events of a person by tuning into the spirit energy surrounding that person. A medium empath can also communicate with spirits and beings on the non-material plane.
Being a psychic empath can be very useful, but it is not always easy. Psychic empaths may be particularly sensitive to their environment and can suffer from unexplained allergies and physical symptoms. And while the talents of a psychic empath are significant, their gifts may not work at optimal levels at all times. This means they cannot solve everyone’s problems all the time, including, if not especially, their own.
Often, the first step to take if you think you might be a psychic empath is to learn to distinguish your own emotions, thoughts and senses from those of others. Once you have done this, you need to learn how to shield yourself so that you are not bombarded with an overload of information all the time. With practice, the psychic empath learns to tune in their gift when they need it and switch it to the background when they are trying to get on with other things.
Even with these forms of protection in place, most psychic empaths need considerable time alone to keep emotionally balanced.
