Mystic Empath – Chapter 12

The Mystic Empath personality in family dynamics


As you read this section keep the following in mind:

  • Family can be chosen.
  • Your situation is unique to you and every aspect of your life cannot be covered in a single archetype.
  • Family roles are variable and not necessarily gender-specific.

Your archetype’s personality within the family

Growing up you probably had a reputation as the intellectual or bookish one in the family. You may have been an introspective child, picking up on a lot more than the adults around you probably realized.

As an empath, you recognize more than just the information that is being exchanged. You also sense the emotions, unspoken experiences, and expectations of others.

Your approach to life would have been serious and determined. As you entered into your teens and adulthood, you found a way to ease up on yourself, but the intense seeking for meaning in life remained with you. You could have felt connected to certain relatives, finding solace in their individuation process.

Siblings or your immediate family may have boxed you into particular categories and you spent some of your formative years trying to decide if you actually fit into those roles or not. When you figure out who you are as an individual, you are able to differentiate yourself and follow your own path in life.

The Mystic Empath as a parent

Feel free to flex the concept of ‘parent’ to your situation when reading this section.

You are likely to have an empathic child or children just like yourself. Sensitive souls tend to find each other in the universe. If and when you decide to have children, it is often later in life, so you feel secure in your choice and ability to plan. You apply precision to parenting just as you do other areas of life while also being encouraging and thoughtful towards your children. Your children will accept you for you and you will accept them the way they are.

You are a gracious parent. You value education and learning, spending a lot of effort and resources to get your kids into activities that will help them grow.

In addition, you incorporate spiritual and cultural elements into their upbringing, so they are well-rounded and understand the diverse world they live in. Accessible quality education, sound values, and community are some of the most important areas you pay attention to when it comes to raising your kids.

In conclusion, your life path might involve devoting yourself to your work or research and you may choose not to have kids. Remaining childfree, you might feel that you have more space for other areas of commitment related to religious, spiritual, and community involvement.
