What Does Empath Mean ?

  • Empath - A person who has the ability to pick up the emotions or feelings of others.     
  • Medium Empath - A person who is linked to the spirit world. These people can sense the spirits that are present.  A medium uses his or her psychic or intuitive abilities to see the past, present and future events of a person by tuning into the spirit energy surrounding that person. A medium empath can also communicate with spirits and beings on the non-material plane" (learning-mind.com)    

This page will focus on Medium Empath and provide a personal account of a woman who was a medium empath.

The Life of a Medium Empath

Lourdes has passed away. At the time of this conversation, she was 80 years old.

She was a highly sensitive woman who had a wealth of spiritual knowledge and an interesting spiritual journey.

She was a spiritual empath medium who developed her spiritual mediumship and psychic abilities very young.

Her journey contained numerous learning lessons. Some were very challenging.

Throughout her life, she acquired a vast amount of spiritual knowledge. In addition to sensing the spirit energy around people, she was able to feel other people's emotions.

Below is her story.

The Spiritual Awakening

"I recall having my first spiritual experience at the age of four.

"I vividly remember my mother coming to my room to say goodnight and turning off the lights.

"Suddenly, I would see these beautiful colored lights moving above me, which I now recognize as orbs.

"They would come and keep me company every night until I fell asleep, and I was never afraid.

"I was too young and naive to know it wasn't normal, so I never told my mother.

"Apart from orbs, I could sense things others didn't see or feel.

"I recall telling my mother of a neighbor, who was visiting, that she was so sad because she had lost an unborn baby. No one knew that she had a miscarriage a few months ago. That was the beginning of sensing other people's pain."

My First Velada (Spiritual Gathering)


"I was four years old when I attended my first velada-spiritual gathering.

"I sat quietly on my mother's lap, observing everything around me. Although I did not understand what was happening, I was not scared. Instead, the spiritual mediums' actions enthralled me.

"I had many spiritual experiences in my early adolescent years, such as astral travel. However, I can't recall specific details.

In addition, it was during this time that I began sensing other people's emotions."

The Dream


"I was eleven years old when I had a mind-blowing dream.

The dream took place in a distant land. I believe it was India or a similar place.

"I was a female beggar dressed in filthy rags.

"Before being an outcast, I was the wife of a wealthy man. Due to a wrongful act committed by me, I was banished from my home and forced to live a life of poverty.

"Begging for something to eat, I noticed a festival nearby.

"Suddenly, a man on an elephant appeared. It was my husband. I ran to him and asked for forgiveness.

"He came down from the elephant and approached me. With immense anger and hate in his eyes, he pushed me to the ground.

"That was the end of dream.

"The dream was so meaningful. It gave rise to the concept of past lives and foretold future events.

"Later, I would meet the man from my dream, and he would become my husband."

Meeting of Souls

"A year later, I was attending a party when a man walked in. He was approximately 18 years old and a replica of the man from my dream.

"I could not believe my eyes. Since I was too young, nothing happened between us.

"I was fifteen years old when we met again. He was the older and handsome man that young girls dream of meeting.

"Although I was fifteen years old, we secretly started going out. I was very much in love."

The Spiritual Consultation

"During the initial part of our relationship, I remember visiting a spirit medium for a consultation.

The medium was an elderly woman who was legally blinded. She and her husband lived in poverty-stricken surroundings.

The woman first told me, 'My child, you are in a relationship that is not going anywhere. It will only bring you great suffering. You are young and can do much with your life. Leave that man before it is too late.'

"When the consultation was over, I wanted to give her some money. She stopped me and said, 'No, take the money and buy something for yourself.'

I was so disappointed when I left the apartment. I wanted to hear her say, 'He is great and wonderful. And you will live happily ever after.' Just like in fairy tales.

However, I got the opposite. In time, her words would become a reality.

I was not Cinderella, and he was not my prince charming."


"Instead of heeding the woman's advice, I got married. I was sixteen years old.

"By the age of seventeen, I was the mother of a baby girl.

"Two years later, I gave birth to another daughter. The union lasted four years.

"The relationship was a love/hate situation- love on my side and hate on his.

"Similar to the dream, I felt I was being punished. However, I did not know why. It seemed he detested me without cause."

My Spiritual Development

"Amidst the emotional state turmoil in my life, I attended spiritual gatherings.

"I was in so much need of spiritual guidance and comfort, and the gatherings provided that and much more.

"I was seventeen when spirit came through me. I was at a spiritual gathering at my mother's house.

At the commencement of the session, I felt an unsettling sensation inside me. The sensation was like no other. It was all new to me.

As the session continued, the sensation kept intensifying. My body kept vibrating uncontrollably. It was spirit taking over my body.

"A spirit medium, who was at the gathering and had much spiritual experience, began assisting me.

"The spirit energy came through me in a short time and began speaking.

"Throughout the channeling process, I was semi-conscious, remembering very little. It was a compelling experience."

Connecting with My Spirit Team

"From that day, I began connecting with my spirit guides. On several occasions, I would sit down with paper and pencil and draw. The majority of the drawings were of my spirit guides."

Lourdes' spirit guides

"In addition, I would write messages from spirits. Whenever they directed me to write or draw, immense spirit energy would travel all over my body, especially my hand. The more I engaged in spiritual work and attended spiritual gatherings, the more connected to spirits I became.

"I continued working with my guides for several years. Although I was experiencing many problems, I remained faithful to my guides."

Life Changes

"I remarried with the disapproval of my guides. The marriage did not last long. I became a widow.

"After a few years, I met and married a wonderful man. He was the love of my life. Before my marriage, my departed grandmother came to me in a dream. She warned me not to marry. Paying no heed to the warning, I got married."

Pulling Away from My Spirit Team

"Even though my husband and his family were believers in spirits, I began pulling away from spiritism. I no longer wanted to be a part of it. At times, they would gather and conduct spiritual sessions. Although I was always invited, I refused to attend. The spirit world was no longer a part of my life.

"To this very day, I cannot understand the reasons behind my actions. Perhaps, I felt I had attained happiness and needed nothing else. I don't really know."


Even though my husband was a good loving man, my story did not have a happy, everlasting ending. After a few years, he developed cancer and died.

"Throughout the many tragedies in my life, I always had the spiritual fortitude needed to move on. However, when my last husband passed away, I felt utterly lonely. I no longer felt the spirit energy around me. I felt an immense inner emptiness.

"After my husband's death, my life began to take a drastic turn. I became entangled in a web of loneliness and despair. Although my youngest daughter became my savior, she, too, died unexpectedly."

Trying to Re-capture Past Spiritual Connection

"I tried desperately to connect with my spirit team but to no avail. I felt they had abandoned me. I felt, saw, or heard nothing. I was paying the price for rejecting them.

"After many years, I have finally been blessed once again. I have begun to connect with my guides. Although it is not the same as before, I am grateful to God for a second chance. I wasted so much time."


"My biggest error in life was to reject my mediumship. I did a foolish thing and paid a heavy penalty.

Could my life have turned out differently if I continued with my spiritual mission? I don't know. What I know is that my cross would have been lighter to carry with the help of my spirit guides.

"For those on a spiritual path, remain firm. Don't commit the same mistakes I made. Seek spiritual assistance; attend spiritual gatherings to attain spiritual enlightenment; and be faithful to God and spirit guides.

"Remember, the road to spirit mediumship is not easy. It is a slow process that requires much patience and faith. The key is not to give up. In the end, you will be grateful that you kept it going.

"Many blessings to all."
