Mystic Empath’s spiritual path to meaning
As an inherently spiritual person, you invest a lot of yourself into this area of life. Many hours are spent contemplating the meaning and purpose of existence. You empathically connect to the Universe and feel things on a deep soul level. This divine energy is so important to you that you often shape much of your choices around it.
You don’t only find meaning in existence in and of itself but also like to look into mystical paths and what they have discovered as a way of furthering your study and practices. Often, you prefer to experience your spirituality in solitude but do sometimes join in groups—either way, you tend to always have your own thing going on.
Whether you grew up religious or non-religious, you still look into the past at the spiritual roots of your ancestors. You like to place yourself in time and space and see the bigger picture of how religion and belief have shaped culture and society.
Your own personal path tends to be eclectic based on your personal values and convictions. You tend to seek out a mentor and stick with this person for years of your life, gathering wisdom and studying fervently under the guidance of this experienced teacher.
As you grow and gain in your own personal wisdom, you eventually can recognize when it is time for you to take on the role of the teacher as well. You might even take on students of your own at some point, especially if you have chosen to study spirituality in a particular tradition.
Spiritual and Psychological concepts for you to explore
Mysticism: Mystical traditions often appeal to you, especially ones that require years of deep dedication and study. You like to understand the philosophies and practices as they allow you to engage in the ecstatic and experiential elements of having a connection to the divine.
Jungian Psychology: This is a form of psychology that takes into account the layers of the psyche. Through the process of individuation, one begins to make the unconscious aspects of themselves conscious. As a therapeutic technique Jungian psychology is called analytical psychology, a method that looks at dreams, archetypes, and symbolism all playing out through the life of the individual. These concepts are then put into a cohesive analysis to understand the current state of one’s soul and how one goes about finding meaning in their existence.
Kundalini Yoga: This is a form of yoga that incorporates a variety of techniques including meditation, chanting, breathing, singing, and movement. There are multiple approaches and schools of practice for this type of yoga. It is heavy in its spiritual components.
How to find the spirituality that works for you
Discernment in your spiritual exploration is recommended. As you are someone who likes to be very thorough in your approach to things, you want to be conscious of how much energy you are dedicating to something that might be just a passing interest. Although there is nothing wrong with research and learning, being spread too thin in your spiritual studies can take away from your ability to experience the depth you are seeking.
You are naturally drawn to mystery traditions, the occult, the esoteric, and hidden wisdom. This innate curiosity guides you towards the divine relationship that calls to you. Your heart in line with your mind gives you the foresight you need to determine which direction you should be heading in. Learning to trust your intuition around spiritual matters is essential to find what you need to feel spiritually fulfilled.
How spiritual practice can help you manage your emotions
Your spiritual self-expression is intensely important to your identity. You often relate very strongly to the spiritual communities you are participating in. This is a huge part of how you anchor yourself and how you teach yourself to manage your emotions.
If you are on a mystical path for example that stresses compassion, you will filter your feelings through this lens. For this reason, your spiritual practices will have an impact on how you hold and process your feelings. If you know for example, that you would like to get better at managing your anxiety, then you might incorporate spiritual mindfulness practices into your daily life. If you are trying to generate more life force, self-acceptance, and passion for doing the things that you love then you might undergo training in spiritual paths that focus on generating energy through ecstatic practices.
Overall, the way you incorporate your spiritual path into your life will directly influence how you handle your emotions. The spiritual worldview you cloak yourself in is one of your ultimate support systems.
How to find your purpose as a Mystic Empath: reading the signs
Developing your gifts
Your life’s journey involves finding your courage to share with others. It feels more comfortable for you to be a wallflower in many ways, and there is nothing wrong with being introverted. However, part of your path is also to show the world who you are. For this reason, you are being called to find a way to express these more hidden, hermit-like sides of yourself.
There are many ways to share your abilities using your empathic skills as your strength. Your heightened sensitivity to the Universe’s energy gives you powerful insights and your attention to detail allows you to state your observations with profound accuracy. You can write, teach, lecture, create content, mentor, and so much more.
