Are empaths angels?

No. Not all empaths are earth angels. However, many empaths can possess angelic traits. These empaths are more spiritual in nature and have a connection with a higher source. They extend their healing energy and spread a message of peace to people. Usually, they feel as if they are born to fulfill a higher purpose.

Empath

An empath refers to an individual who is sensitive and able to feel the emotional pain of other people.  People consider them to be a subset of Highly sensitive people (HSP). They have a good awareness of another person’s thoughts and feelings. They can put themselves in another person’s shoes and understand their perspective and worldview. It’s like empaths can hear the words and listen to the body language of other people including their tone of voice, posture, facial expressions, and even their silence. Such people are driven to help and heal others.  Usually,  they hold the other person’s feelings and help them process it together.

An Earth Angel

Earth angels are evolved spiritual beings who are born in this world to help humanity and spread the message of love, compassion, and peace. They are there to make a difference in the world by extending their healing energies to help others. In addition to that, they can sense the vibrational energy of the world and have a strong sense of knowing. They are expressive with their words, thoughts, feelings and their bodies. They express this creativity and release their emotions along with their energy into two forms of art like dancing, acting, and other bodily movements. While doing these activities, they are so immersed in them that they cannot feel the world around them.

Earth angels are synonymously described as spiritual empaths. Spiritual empaths are people who can detect the spirit of other people and feel their core essence. They can also feel the spirit of the land, animals, and the people who have crossed over to the other side. They can detect the presence of Angels and mentors through their vibrational frequencies and insights. They play their role by helping souls that are lost to find meaning in life and eventually cross over to connect with their loved ones in heaven.

The difference between an empath and an angel

An angel is a soul that is not from earth.   Although all souls are from a divine source and take on characteristics of their environment and learn from their personal history. For example, people from tropical beaches are different from people who live in an urban city area. However,  everyone is the same from the inside. Human souls may have some angelic characteristics based on the time they have spent in heavenly realms. Most empaths have characteristics or traits of Angels. However, not all empaths are Earth Angels.
