You might not know; you may even be doing both – being empathic and receiving a Word of Knowledge – one of the Spiritual gifts – about someone else.
Add compassion, like Jesus, to your gentle awareness of pain – the healing and ministry is better, easier, faster.
You can do these things for others, especially when you have a Word of Knowledge that allows you to feel and experience what is going on with the other person. You can often do this for others in intercessory prayer.
I wonder if this is is how Jesus sometimes healed. I think probably so.
Jesus as the Word who created all, including us, has given us these gifts to gently and lovingly use.
Jesus literally has created us to heal trauma and pain.
What amazing and wonderful gifts he has given us.
And he has sent Holy Spirit to help us discover, learn about and do these things. Which, with our Helper and Guide, goes so much better, easier and better.
So do as he told us, and as he showed us. Heal pain and trauma in yourself and others with gentle compassion and Holy Spirit.
Do not wait, do not be passive. He tells us today, go: heal the sick and free the bound. With gentle compassion and love, go forth and heal. You do these things.
He has equipped us and given us all we need to do as he says.
Those of you who are Highly Sensitive Persons or who are highly empathic have been especially equipped to heal this way, with your gentle, compassionate and loving attention, first with front of the mind awareness, then with back of the mind awareness which resolves trauma and speeds healing along. These are gifts from our Creator, the Word. Jesus.
What an amazing and wonderful Lord he is!
