Our Conditioning -The Empath
Written by Mathew Naismith
As I wrote in my last post about empath's and empathic, there is a difference between being an empath and empathic, however, one can be an empath and empathic as well. Most often this is the case due to our conditioning which means that our environment as a whole will condition us to feel and think in a certain ways. Basically, being empathic as well means that our environment will condition us in certain ways which will influence the way we feel and think.
Being primarily an empath is different to being also empathic or just simply empathic. Being an empath is primarily to do with vibrations with no emotional involvement where's being empathic is all to do with emotional involvement. A good example of this is my reactions to what has occurred in
recently, my reactions are totally empathic because I am emotionally involved
to the point in writing a post about this occurrence, however. London
When I bypass the emotions involved in incidences or occurrences like this, I then become the empath, a person who is no longer emotionally involved to the point of just pointing the finger at one cause of the problem, the point of the problem being religious extremism in this case. How many of us have just pointed the finger at religious extremism being the problem here due to being also empathic? How many of us primarily look at our own governments as being the primary source of extremism today?
Because of our empathic feelings/biases, we only look and feel that the primary problem of extremism and terrorism is religiously based, in actuality we are conditioned to think like this so that we don't become aware or feel the real root cause of today's extremism and terrorism. No one joins an extremist group or starts up an extremist group for no reason, most of the times extremist groups are in retaliation to other forms of extremisms or terrorism.
Extract: Given these complexities, the psychology of terrorism is marked more by theory and opinion than by good science, researchers admit. But a number of psychologists are starting to put together reliable data. They're finding it is generally more useful to view terrorism in terms of political and group dynamics and processes than individual ones, and that universal psychological principles—such as our subconscious fear of death and our desire for meaning and personal significance—may help to explain some aspects of terrorist actions and our reactions to them.
Ask yourself, why is it that we have more terrorist acts acted out against Western people these days? Now ask yourself this, why has the destabilisation by the coalition forces of the
Middle East resulted in more terrorist acts? When you
have been abused and have had your country pilfered by another culture for
centuries, what would the result be of a people psychologically and
Now, how many empaths, who are also empathic, feel the vibrations of what is truly going on in the world today? Our empathic feelings are based on the conditioning of our environment, we then allow this conditioning to influence how we pick up on other people's vibrations, especially other groups of people who seem to be extremist in nature.
Now, it might be said that I have no idea how an empath picks up on the vibrations within the environment around them.
I was once at a point that I picked up on the vibrations of the victim and the perpetrator in a number of crimes that actually occurred, I always felt what the victim was feeling first, at no time did this influence me in the way I also picked up on the perpetrators vibrations. In saying this, I was often emotionally sickened by the vibrations expressed by the perpetrators; these emotional feelings at no time stop me from really feeling the person was behind the perpetrator. This is of course in line with the people behind the terrorist acts and the reason these people are the way they are today.
Too often can empaths with empathic feelings feel in accordance with their conditionings and go no further. The reason I know this isn't just to do with my own observations but in how many empaths have judged people like me incorrectly. I have had a chronic injury since I was six years old, in conjunction with the rest of my early years that were quite turbulent, especially family wise, my own vibrations can seem discordant to some people not aware or wise enough to know any better. This again is very much inline with extremists if you like, were empaths only feel the extremist vibrations, not the real vibrations behind the extremism!! I however have had certain empaths who have felt beyond the boundaries of these kinds of conditionings but this is very rare.
It's actually not the empath side of us that is influenced by the conditionings of our environment; it is always the empathic side of us that is influenced in this way. This is because the empath will feel vibrations void of bad or good, negative or positive, black or white; there is no bias or partiality involved. On the other hand, it is wise to be aware that there is always partiality involved in empathic emotions, especially when we prefer not to be aware or accepting of this. Yes, people like me express empathy but we do it knowing that our empathic emotions can influence in a bias way, giving us a false representation of the vibrations we pick up on.
The following empath test to find out if you are an empath or not is just for fun, please do not take it seriously.
