The Path Of The Outcast – The Empath Perspective

Have you ever felt misunderstood by the outside world? Have you got these unlimited questions of “why’s” and “how’s” to everything bad happening in the world? Are you emotionally sensitive, and feel the emotions of others? If the answer is “yes”, then maybe you are an EMPATH. Is it a good ability to add and use in black magic? Absolutely! Let me introduce you to the world of the empath:

What Is An Empath?

Being an empath is the ability to seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another and feeling with the heart of another. Apply that emotional sensitiveness to spirit interaction and magical workings, and it enhances the ability by a tenfold.

Why The Empath Is Considered An “Oddity” In Black Magic

The general view of a black magician is that most of them practice magic to enhance the ego with little, or no emotional attachments to it, since it seems to have too much ethics and morality that “blocks” their ways of ascendance. That doesn’t mean a general black magician is without empathy for others, but the way they approach magic is most likely different than how an empath approach magic.

So, where lies the “oddity” of an empath versus a traditional black magician?

It’s the attachment to emotions that drives them to make a decision within their magical paths, and they usually stand by their choices firmly. Ethics and morality is what drives them. Is that a weakness? Not necessarily. Balance is the key, so the emotional investments must be threaded lightly. Tipping the scale too much, and it might not end in their favor.

What Kind Of Spirits Are For The Empath?

Spirits and deities of the Feminine Current is often considered a strong ally for the Empath Magician. Devotion, trust, making compromises, letting go of the control and the ego. It is surely a challenge for any kind of magician, because the effort of devotion is unusually high within the feminine divine.

Emotionally driven deities such as Lilith, Naamah, Agrat bat Mahlat and Eisheth Zenunim are good consorts for the empath, because they can easily empathize – and often fall in love – with that kind of abilities. And they have a morbid fascination of something they are not used to in their general approach to humans, which can even surprise them immensely, and to some extent even scare them.

Other female, and male deities that are within the emotional current is considered a good companion for the empath, just because they often understand and can relate to the daily challenges and struggles an empath have throughout their lives.

Being An Empath Isn’t Easy

I always considered myself an empath, and had a few run-ins with strangers with some bizarre sensory occurrences to it. To actually feel others emotions and at the same time see how the peripheral vision changes from color to grey around that specific person, or how their eyes is revealing something about them. Something they don’t even have to say out loud. It comes with a fascinating, and a scary revelation of the fragile mind of a human.

The challenging part is to take distance from the negative flow of the emotional currents surrounding me. Reading the news of wars and violence is a challenge in itself, because it raises these questions of “how” and “why”, and the emotional currents gets unbalanced rather quickly.

Depression and being an empath is often drawn as a common denominator, and a few of us do get caught into the currents of others emotions, without finding something to balance it out. I also think that depression is more common with empaths that isn’t aware of their gifts and abilities, so they end up thinking it’s their own emotions, rather than from someone else.

We’re all have gifts and abilities within us and no matter what our gifts are, we should use it for the benefits of helping ourselves and others.

  1. That was AWESOME! Immensely helpful.
    This post really helped explain to me why I am who I am.
    And I don’t feel so weird about it now, either 🙂

    • Thanks! 🙂
      It is a tricky topic, though, and it took me a good few days to write it and format it. Yeah, I wanted it to look good, too. 😛

      Being an empath, isn’t easy, either, and I’m glad if it helped you to understand yourself better. 🙂

      • That was an odd message from Lilith. In what context was her reply referred to, my friend?

        Pssst: Lilith is my Second Wife. 😉

      • Oh yeah. In that case, I think she told me to give that to you, for me, hah?

        Well, that makes more sense now, actually.

        Ok.

        I’m trying to connect Lilith and the Fae because I know there’s a link, I can smell it.

        So far the best I’ve done is to connect the Annunaki and the Tuatha De Danaan.

        Yeah, not exactly proof positive but there’s not a whole lot out there.

        So whatcha thinkin’?

      • Ah, it was the link? It didn’t show up at first, making your post rather clueless. 😛
        Lovely pictures, and I’ve seen Lilith as a fairy, so I definitely see a connection there.

        Regarding research on Lilith, there is quite a lot of sources to dig into. Start digging into Jewish mythology, which traces her all the way back to the Babylonian era some 4000-ish years back.

        But there’s not much research can do but to share the mythical aspect of her, which doesn’t make justice to who she is as a unique individual. It’s a misconceptual current, that any spirit are willing to act upon. At least in their introduction phase. No wonder there’s a lot of horror stories about Lilith, don’t you think?

        I love to do research about specific mythologies and historical figures, because it’s good to learn things. But regarding myths about spirits, deities, gods and goddesses, it’s always best to read it critically. Even more so, when dogma is a part of the myth.

        About Lilith being connected to the Fae? She could be, and there is some connection in the Kabbalah and the Tree Of Life, which Lilith have an important part of.

        Myths and history is fascinating, interesting and intriguing. We can learn something from that, see the perspective from the writers point of view. But that doesn’t make us learn anything of value from the characters point of view, who THEY are as a unique individual. We can only learn by an actual interaction with them.

        It’s just like Robin Williams said to Matt Damon in “Good Will Hunting”:

        “I can’t learn anything from you, I can’t read in some fuckin’ book. Unless you want to talk about you, who you are. Then I’m fascinated. I’m in”

  2. Great post 🙂 I myself do have empathic tendencies, I don’t have much control over it but I am sensitive to people around me, and can physically feel others anxiety. My mother I grew up with was suicidal and loads of self hatred despression etc, so I got sensitive to those currents. I am especially good at feeling when someone is in self denial. At times it is hard to know if I am depressed or if its people around me. This post gave me some perspective thanks 🙂

  3. Interesting post, I’m no empath, but I do tend to feel emotions quite strongly. I could be wrong, but it seems like ever since I opened up to spirit relationships, my emotional sensitivity in general has increased considerably. One thing that’s been bothering me of late though, is the fact that I’m having trouble finding the line that separates devotion from obsession, healthy trust from blind faith etc. How do you go about finding the right balance?

    I’ve always had some degree of difficulty with this. But it’s gotten particularly bad after I interacted with a certain group known as the Succubus Collective. I would rather not go into details here, suffice to say that it affected me in a very negative way. If you don’t mind, could we discuss it over mail?
