Do you have ESP or are you psychic? What’s the difference?
Defining an Empath
An Empath is an individual with the ability to sense and feel the emotions and energies of people, animals or objects at a distance. Often referred to as a sensitive, they are often overtly sensitive in body and in mind. This can cause emotional and physical problems to be adopted or mimicked by the sensitive, clearly this can be a root cause of personal distress. Empaths tend to be conduits for energy, they can be completely unaware that they are being used to ground another’s distress.
Extra Sensory Perception (ESP)
Beyond the 5 senses are a number of gifts:
What is a Clairsentient?
Clairsentience is the use of all ESP mediums at once, these guys really are walking antennae’s. They can find the essence of you from a photo, or by watching your body move or by just focusing on the energy signature you send out. Clairsentients have a sort of bar coding machine which they scan you with that gives them a deep knowing of the core or the essence of your being.
A Clairsentient person is able to perceive energy fields (through physical sensations), including a person's aura and vibrations (such as voice and how words are used or strung together). This may also explain the ability to "sense" the presence of non-corporeal entities, such as ghosts, smudge entities and shadow forms.
Clairsentience, which means clear sensing, is the ability to feel the present, past or future physical and emotional states of others, without the use of the normal five senses. They gather the information as a download from outside of their minds, from the energy field that surrounds their focus.
This is a group that can be all of the above or simply a seer. The term psychic is somewhat over used, often people assume they are psychic when in fact they may be Empaths or clairvoyant. The defining attribute of psychics is they can understand and know information from outside of the realms of what seems possible and sometimes inexplicably so. Terms often used are Supernatural, other worldly, transcendental, magical or mystical.
A Catalyst by definition is a thing which precipitates an event or change, often without itself being affected. Therefore, a Spiritual Catalyst is a person who precipitates an event or a change on the level of spirit (the essential, incorporeal part of someone or something). Spiritual Catalysts, like gurus, have attained a high level of spiritual authority, awareness, and knowledge, which enables them to guide others. Spiritual Catalysts however, do not aim to become “Leaders” to their disciples as much as they wish to cause their disciples to question and find answers within themselves. The desire of the catalyst is for the individual to find awareness and awake under their own terms. The catalyst is only the booster of energies which can allow a Kundalini experience or an awakening to take place, the act of awakening must be by request, be that spoken or sensed by the Catalyst, “it must not be forced”.
You could call them spiritual enablers. If you’re an Empath or sentient in the presence of a Catalyst you will find your gifts boosted and added to as a side effect of their higher energy vibration.
