In this post, we discuss signs and traits of a heyoka empath.
What are traits of a heyoka empath
- You have a natural intuitiveness.
Empathic and intuitive people can often sense other people’s emotions and energies as if they were their own. You may also have a strong intuition about things, even if you aren’t aware of it.
You know when to trust your instincts, but you’re too shy to tell anyone. Sensing other people’s emotions is both a blessing and a curse; you understand how people feel and think, but you often struggle to connect with others as a result.
You may also have artistic characteristics. Many empathic people are creative and artistic, so it stands to reason that empath would be as well.
You may enjoy drawing or painting in your spare time, which translates to the workplace if you enjoy designing or creating art. It could also indicate that you are naturally intuitive in art class.
- You have bipolar symptoms.
Heyokas, like empaths, have difficulty managing their emotions; this is because you naturally sense other people’s emotions, which can be overwhelming at times. You, like any empath, will be prone to depression, rage, and sadness.
You get a certain amount of joy from being alone, but you also get lonely. Without much provocation, you can easily devolve into bouts of depression or rage.
This is primarily due to the ability to absorb other people’s feelings or energy from their surroundings. Heyokas are natural puzzle solvers with a strong analytical mind when it comes to problem solving or determining the root cause of something.
Because you see things from the outside in, you’re excellent at conceptualizing and organizing situations. For example, you may drive by a house and immediately determine what color paint should be used to refresh the exterior or how to organize an event so that it runs smoothly, but you may also determine what kind of people live there.
- You can tell if someone is angry or sad without even speaking to them.
Heyokas are often excellent at detecting anger in others because they do not need to communicate with them to determine whether or not they are angry. They are amazing at this because they can sense a person’s energy and even tell if someone is lying or not.
Empaths have sensors to detect emotions, but heyokas can detect them simply by sensing a person’s energy. Heyokas are naturally talented at detecting sadness in others.
- You’re a shy person.
Many empaths are introverts, and you may struggle to manage all of your emotions. If you can’t concentrate on one thing for long, you might be one of those people who has multiple thoughts going through their heads all the time.
Introverts often feel drained when they are surrounded by people for an extended period of time, so if you have noticed this in yourself, you may be a heyoka empath. Heyokas are shy and prefer to keep their feelings to themselves.
They bury their emotions and may not even be aware of how they feel at all times. This is because they are too preoccupied with gauging how other people feel to pay attention to themselves.
Most of the time, you value your personal space, but you can also feel lonely for no apparent reason.
- You’re constantly surrounded by people who are angry, sad, or afraid.
Empaths are often found around angry people because they can sense their energy and thoughts. This frequently leads to them becoming either victims of abuse or perpetrators of abuse.
It is also common for empaths to be around people who are prone to being bullied or abused because they know that person will be unable to stand up for themselves in such situations. This is usually the time when you step in to save them and help restore the world’s balance.
No one will tell you, however, that you will feel like a train wreck afterwards because these situations are exhausting.
- You have many personality traits that you do not understand.
Heyokas can be difficult to understand because they are made up of both light and dark energies. Even if they appear to be happy on the outside, they may be sad on the inside.
This can create a mental storm, which can be quite confusing and burdensome at times. If you’ve noticed that you recognize numerous characteristics in your own behavior and can’t believe you’re the way you are at times, you might be a heyoka.
This occurs as a result of your psyche acting as a sponge for other people’s energies and characteristics. If someone is lying, their face and entire body language will reveal it, but not everyone will notice it.
You might be a heyoka if you’ve noticed this about yourself. Heyokas have enhanced senses and can often see things that others cannot; they are also excellent at identifying patterns.
When it comes to listening to others, they will notice any differences in their tone of voice or even the way they feel. Heyokas can sense when something is off or different than it should be so that you may have exceptional intuition about situations or people.
They can see right through deception, and they have done so for as long as they can remember. Heyokas are prone to emotional upheaval due to their ability to absorb all types of emotions from their surroundings.
If they are suffering from unnoticed depression or anxiety, they will not necessarily exhibit it at all times. They may become moody and depressed at times, so be cautious!
If you become too overwhelmed by it, you must work on your boundaries and strengthen your ability to turn off outside influences, at least temporarily.
- You’re not very good at managing your time.
When it comes to time management, many empaths are out of control. This occurs because balancing work, family, and personal time is extremely difficult.
Heyokas are frequently late because they have overscheduled themselves or have forgotten that they have a commitment. Is this something you’ve heard before?
You may be a heyoka if you are prone to this. If you’re nodding your head right now, you know what you need to work on and improve!
It is the only way to save at least a little time for yourself while getting everything done! Heyokas are very social creatures who are usually open, friendly, and caring.
When they are around other people, they frequently form strong friendships. They enjoy spending time with their friends and are often very generous to them.
This is because heyokas absorb a lot of energy from the people around them, but that’s not all! There is an exchange of energies that can make you feel better but can also make you feel worse in seconds.
Heyokas are frequently drawn to people who exude a lot of negative energy. This is common with empaths, but heyokas are far more drawn to this type of person.
They can actually sense the power of negative energy and will gravitate toward it. If you find yourself doing this, be aware!
Heyokas can be extremely paranoid at times because they read too much into things, which can cause them a lot of pain.
- You aren’t very good at managing your emotions.
Many empaths are unable to control their emotions. This occurs because having so many emotions is difficult.
Heyokas are frequently moody or depressed, sometimes simply because they are unaware of how much they can influence the lives of others. When you can’t tell anyone what you’re going through, this is a difficult problem to manage.
Emotional intelligence is one of the most important things empaths must focus on, but because they seem to have it all the time, they don’t notice it. Emotional intelligence entails the importance of protecting ourselves while also being able to be respectful of other people’s emotions.
It also emphasizes the importance of being able to express your feelings to others. Not all heyokas are happy, but this does not imply that they lack emotional intelligence because most people are unaware of how much they can mean to their family and friends.
The ability to be aware of your moods and how they affect those around you is referred to as emotional intelligence. However, empaths perceive other people’s energy as waves that come and go.
This can result in a lot of emotional outbursts at times, but heyokas are generally very passionate.
- You’re an artist who is sensitive to criticism.
Heyokas are some of the most imaginative people you’ll ever meet. They have a huge imagination, and creativity is something that runs deep within them.
They may not appear to be as creative on the outside, but they have a lot going on inside their heads all the time. One thing that may be obvious is a lack of ability to accept criticism.
Heyokas dislike being told that something is wrong with their work, especially since they are already easily irritated by criticism. Heyokas are also some of the most sensitive artists you’ll ever meet, and they’ll cry if they receive criticism about one of their works or even a piece of writing.
No matter how harsh the critic is, heyokas frequently take it personally, which can cause them a great deal of pain.
- You have a tendency to carry a lot of guilt with you.
Self-blame and guilt are another issue that many empaths struggle with. Even when heyokas believe they are overly sensitive to their surroundings, they are often able to recognize when they have made a mistake.
This makes them feel bad about what they’ve done and can lead them down a dark path. Not only that, but they can feel the guilt of others and struggle to deal with it in a healthy way.
Heyokas are often dissatisfied with their surroundings. This is because they frequently have difficulty understanding how other people are feeling and thinking.
When these things are not entirely clear to them, they may feel out of place and slightly perplexed.
- You are preoccupied with other people’s emotions while ignoring your own.
Heyokas will pay attention to how others are feeling or become overly sensitive to the energy in the room, which can cause them to become agitated at times. They don’t notice it very often because they are too concerned with their own moods, but if they did, it would most likely bother them greatly.
They are excellent listeners and can make anyone feel at ease when they need it. They are excellent at making others feel at ease because they are patient, kind, gentle, and understanding. Heyokas can always tell when someone is lying to them.
This is because heyokas can detect when something is off or out of place. Introverts require time alone with their thoughts to recharge their batteries, whereas Heyokas require time alone to think and sort through their emotions, but they also require the company of others to feel happy.
Heyoka are people who see the world in a way that most people do not, which makes them quite mysterious.
- You enjoy making people feel better.
When you’re a heyoka empath, it’s easy to get caught up in your own thoughts. This can make it difficult to interact with others, and you may feel the need for alone time to deal with your emotions.
As a result, heyokas are frequently the people who try to reconcile situations and make others feel better. They frequently serve as mediators and diplomats.
Heyokas are excellent at ensuring that people find a solution to their problems. They frequently have a strong sense of empathy and can be very helpful in determining how things should work out between everyone involved.
They will also notice when someone is concealing something and will frequently attempt to uncover those secrets. It is not easy to be in this situation because people dislike it when someone attempts to interfere with their lives.
Heyokas are often very good at guiding people through difficult times, making them some of the most powerful empaths around. They are extremely sensitive to the emotional energy around them, which can make it difficult for them to feel at ease and in control.
Heyokas are acutely aware of their surroundings’ suffering, which can catch them off guard because such events do not occur frequently in their lives. They are extremely intuitive and have a magical ability to detect whether you are lying or telling the truth.
You can almost always tell when someone is lying or being dishonest about something, but heyokas are often the only ones who notice.
- Socializing provides you with energy.
Heyokas are introverts who find it difficult to move around in crowds. This, however, can cause them to gain energy from socializing and talking with friends, even if they aren’t prepared to participate in the conversation.
Heyokas are highly intuitive, which allows them to read other people easily. When they are surrounded by a large number of people, they feel extremely energized and good.
The only problem is that they may not always be able to pinpoint the source of their emotions. Heyokas are very intuitive about their own emotions, which makes it easy for them to understand how others feel.
They may also unconsciously adopt the emotions of others, which can have a profound effect on them. Heyokas are constantly seeking balance in their lives, which may lead to many major and minor changes throughout their lives.
- Making decisions may be difficult for you.
Because heyokas are introverts, they may find it difficult to make decisions because their minds are constantly going over every minute detail of a subject. They may also believe that knowing everything they should is insufficient when it comes to making decisions.
Heyokas are highly spiritual beings, which can make it difficult for them to fit into the normal, everyday routine of things. Even if they have something important to do, they may become bored easily.
Heyokas are very social creatures who enjoy assisting and interacting with others. They are very good at encouraging and pushing others forward, but when it comes to making life decisions, they may struggle greatly.
Heyokas frequently do this by bringing out the best qualities in others so that they can achieve their goals in life.
- You’re a stickler for details.
Because heyokas are made up of both light and dark energy, they can be high-maintenance creatures. They will frequently expect things to be done perfectly or in their own way, which may make dealing with other people’s personalities difficult.
This is a difficult personality trait for both the individual and those around them. It can be tweaked a little, and being open to learning from mistakes and trying new things, which heyokas are often hesitant to do, can help.
Heyokas are highly intuitive spiritual empaths who are also gifted spiritual empaths. As a result, they are adept at sensing and comprehending what is going on around them.
They also have the ability to read other people’s emotions, how they’re feeling, and what they’re thinking, even if they don’t always know why. It’s not always easy to be an empath and sense other people’s emotions.
It has advantages, but it can also have drawbacks, such as people losing trust in you because they believe you’re giving off the wrong vibe or reading their body language. It can be difficult to live a normal life as a result of this.
Some heyokas, on the other hand, will embrace their ability and put it to good use in the world. They have the ability to detect danger ahead of others and take action to prevent a tragedy from occurring.
If you’re a heyoka empath, embrace it as a gift while also working to protect your emotions and soul from the negative effects of other people’s energies so you can live a happy life!
