Empaths are people who are highly sensitive towards other people’s energies and emotions they are sending out. Also, empaths often take on the feelings, thoughts, and emotions of those around them.
The term ”empath” is derived from the Greek words ”em” meaning ”in” and ”pathos” meaning ”feeling.”
Roger Ebert said:
“I believe empathy is the most essential quality of civilization.”
A study from the Journal of Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews suggested that females are more empathic as a result of neurological adaptation to the traditional role of child-rearing, as it needs a sharper understanding of non-verbal expressions.
List Of 11 Types Of Empaths:
Geomantic empathy, also called environmental empathy, represents the ability of a person to feel the presence in certain places and be miraculously drawn to them.
The geomantic empath can also read the signals and energy transmitted by the earth. In addition, many geomantic empaths are able to predict natural disasters before they occur.
An emotional empath experiences mood swings and often feels as if his emotions don’t match your experience (i.e., being unexplainably sad when grocery shopping).
He also feels things about places, ideas, people, etc. and always ends up being right.
Furthermore, emotional empaths typically have natural therapist tendencies, and a few empaths even follow this career path.
Precognition is called future vision. It is the ability to know the future. Anyone could be a precognitive empath.
You can develop this ability by practicing and opening your mind to extrasensory perception or it could be your gift by birth.
Precognitive empaths have lucid and vivid dreams. That is why these types of empaths hold on to subtle details of their dreams for days and months.
Note – keep in mind that interpreting signs and symbols in dreams is a complicated process and often needs in-depth analysis.
Déjà vu is also a common occurrence for precognitive empaths.
Déjà vu describes a phenomenon where an event takes place in front of you and feels like you’ve seen it before. The earliest account of déjà vu-like experience is referred by Saint Augustine of Hippo (a fourth-century philosopher), who named it as “falsae memoriae.”
These are things which you should pay close attention to, for instance, the events which follow your experience.
Another sign that you are a precognitive empath is that you suddenly become anxious prior to an event. This may be your precognitive capabilities trying to warn you of what’s coming.
Additionally, you may get a bad feeling suddenly or even have a vision of something happening.
Earth empaths are a type of people who are keenly attuned to the natural world and all of the Earth’s changes.
If you are an Earth empath, you feel strongly connected to nature and what is happening on the earth plane.
In addition, you may be someone who senses the pain of a forest and its trees being scorched during a brush fire.
Also, you may be someone who senses grief or sadness before you hear about something devastating on the news.
Note – Earth empaths may have premonitions about natural disasters or feel them intensely in their bodies as they are occurring.
Telepathy is the ability to read what another person is thinking.
It mostly works with people you are close to, for you form a bond if you are particularly close and can be able to know naturally what they are thinking.
In addition, telepathy is part of your meditations, dream time, and numerous other things you do without even realizing it.
A telepath empath can listen to the entire being which allows him to access a boundless amount of wisdom, information, and cognition in a nanosecond.
Note – unlike the communication we are typically used to, which is limited by the time-space continuum, a telepath empath can communicate all the rich information, that is beyond any language, regardless of time and space.
Heyoka is a Native American word meaning ”sacred clown” or ”fool.”
Those who are considered Heyoka empaths are going to be rare.
Heyoka is a type of empath who understands the emotions of others as well as he is able to provide the healing method suited to the individual’s needs.
The traits of a Heyoka empath vary, however, there are some signs which are common, including:
- appearing younger than his age;
- being born breach (entering the world backwards);
- outside the box thinking;
- developing some traits slower than normal people and other traits incredibly fast;
- doing things backwards;
- being emotionally unpredictable;
- being dyslexic (a condition that is characterized by trouble with reading despite normal intelligence).
Plant empaths are those who instinctively know what plants need.
If you are a plant empath, you will have a true sense of precisely where specific plants need to be placed in your garden or home.
Furthermore, you would enjoy strengthening your bond by meditating by a special tree in order to better understand it.
Also, you will also need a lot of exposure to plant life and trees.
Intellectual empaths find themselves able to communicate with different jargon and vocabulary.

Someone who is a psychic empath frequently picks up non-verbal, non-visual cues when another individual is feeling fear, pain, or joy.
Note – if you believe you are a psychic empath, you should learn shielding methods to help protect yourself emotionally. Additionally, it is important to be aware that being someone who’s emotionally sensitive doesn’t automatically make you a psychic empath.

Mediumship is a blip up on the energetic scale from the psychic ability.
It is the capacity to detect and communicate with Spirits – that has an energetic frequency that vibrates very fast – because Spirits no longer have a dense physical body to deal with.
A medium empath is an individual who has fine-tuned her or his extrasensory perception and can interface with the spirits in other dimensions.
Also, he is able to feel and/or hear thoughts, voices, or mental impressions from the spirit world.
Moreover, a medium empath is able to become completely receptive to the higher energies or frequency on which spirit people vibrate.
