The Most Powerful Type Of Empath: Heyoka

Empaths are individuals that can be hard to relate to, but have shared emotion responses with others. They read into body language and special inflections, gleaning more information than the average person would gloss over.

In the modern world, apathy and sympathy reign supreme, as the average person tries be selective in the information they focus on.

We all have the biological hardware to feel what another person feels but we have to be open to the experience.

The acknowledgement of the feelings of others, requires a special sort of honesty with ourselves. Not everyone has a developed sense of empathy.

Those that do, have a special place in society as empaths. The most valued type of empathic archetypes is known as Heyoka.

A Native American term, Heyoka's are living emotional mirrors for those around them. The term means 'sacred clown' or 'fool'. They reveal our shortcomings and weaknesses. They show us our faults and add a way to develop these faults.

This disruption to our spiritual status quo should never be seen as a bad thing. They only mean to help those around them.

If you leave a Heyoka feeling irritated and angry over a negative aspect of their personality (say their arrogance), realize that you are getting upset over them highlighting that formation in you.

Maybe you leave a Heyoka filled with a sense of love. They may be trying to convey to you the importance of self-love and acceptance.

This 'mirroring', isn't always a conscious decision, but it's still a consistent theme in your interactions with them. They are trying to teach you how to open your eyes in a way.

This constant, unpredictable behavior may get under your skin. They seem to know what's bothering you even when you don't know, much less want to address it. They can't leave you blind to your pain though, so they will clue you into it without fail.

Don't run from the experience or push them away. They only want to help and your pain genuinely hurts them as well. Pay attention to your reflection and learn from it. Your Heyoka friend bothers you because of their cruel expression of humor.

Instead of getting upset over it, pay attention to the way your own humor is expressed and how it affects others. You are likely doing the same thing the Heyoka is doing but in ignorance.

These are the 5 signs of a fake friend

The world is comprised of a variety of people. Knowing how to spot these people is important. Unfortunately, many of us already know that some of these people aren't as genuine as others.

It can be hard when you find out that a friend, colleague, or even a family member is fake, especially when it comes to how they interact with you.

Luckily, there are signs that fake people inevitably display throughout their lives that can help you discern who around you is genuine, and who isn't.

Take a look at these five signs to figure out who in your life is being fake.

1. They Try Hard to Be Liked

Fake people try incredibly hard to be liked by the people around them because they're already aware of how fake they truly are.

This is one of the most obvious signs a fake person will display because they'll be working harder than most when it comes to interacting with others, or simply out in public.

You can always tell who your genuine friends are because they'll simply be themselves when around other people.

2. They Crave Attention

Fake people can be spotted because they have to be the center of attention. Not only do they work hard in order to be liked, but they also have to be in the spotlight more than necessary.

If you have someone in your life who can't let others take the spotlight, it may be a good indication that they aren't very genuine.

3. They're Total Show Offs

We already know that fake people crave attention, but because of that, they also show off way more than they should.

Everyone can be a show off at times, but someone who shows off no matter what they're doing is probably fake.

Don't get confused if you have a friend who is naturally good at a number of things; people who are fake tend to advertise, but genuine people won't.

Being good at something doesn't make you a show off.

4. They Gossip All the Time

Gossiping is natural, and we've all let ourselves vent about someone else from time to time. However, fake people will gossip about a lot of people, all the time.

Fake people want to draw negative attention away from themselves because they can't have anyone knowing who they really are.

If you know someone who gossips more than most, say something to stop them and see how they react.

5. They Only Criticize

Another indication you're dealing with a fake person is that they're overly critical.

Fake people can't easily express praise or admiration for other people because they need to look great. If they praise someone else, then that's praise they don't have for themselves.
