  1. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I did not realize it was a myth that had been debunked and have since researched and stand mistaken. I originally learned that statistic from Dale Carnegie's "How To Win Friends and Influence People" in one of my college communications classes. I never thought to research the subject. On another note, the Heartmath institute is incredibly scientific. They are actually a huge contributor the field of epigenetics. I also never made the claim that I had the ability to do this. I proposed a possibly theory behind some of the more extraordinary claims individuals make regarding this topic.
  2. Empaths are not supernatural beings, they are just individuals who are very high on the empathic spectrum. Unless someone is a socio or psychopath then they possess empathic capabilities. Given that it is a spectrum, some are more empathic than others and a variety of factors go into why. Most empaths are born that way, or their "gifts" are heightened due to environmental conditioning in childhood. Most empaths I've encountered that are very sensitive tend to have suffered childhood trauma and heightened their ability to attune to their caregivers' emotions in order to survive. We are all born highly empathic (excluding psychopaths) and develop mirror neurons in response to others around us in early developmental stages. There have been numerous studies done on this topic. I have linked to several articles below my post. I do believe there is more going on with empaths than the ability to read micro-expressions and pick up on subtle nuances in body language and verbal communication. Our heart and mind create an electromagnetic field around our bodies (also known as aura) and I believe empaths have an ability to perceive the electromagnetic spectrum in an intuitive way that leads to "downloads" of information about another individual's state. In terms of a link between empaths and telepathy, I do believe there is a correlation even if there has been no study yet available to prove its existence. Quantum physics is rapidly growing as a field and I think we've yet to develop the correct technology to apply to this in order for there to be a conclusive study. Speaking from personal experience, it's been a number of years where I have noticed that I may randomly think of certain friends or people and end up getting a phone call or text message immediately, or it can take up to a few hours. It is especially prominent with family members or friends I have had a very close connection with for years. It has occurred too many times for me to consider it simply coincidental. Although this is a far cry from direct telepathy, having these experiences definitely makes me believe in the possibility that telepathy could be real or better yet, that we may have the capacity to communicate in such a way in the future. I think we should consider the fact that scientifically we know that we only use 10-15% of our brain matter. Imagine what we could be capable of if we found effective ways (beyond meditation) to increase that percentage? Just because science has not been able to fully account for phenomena many of us may have experienced firsthand or know to be a relatively commonly held belief or idea does not mean that it is not true. I am one hundred percent behind relying upon scientific proof or evidence to support many of my beliefs, but I also try to keep an open mind to ideas or concepts they may not have been proven yet. https://chopra.com/articles/5-scientific-explanations-of-empathy-and-empaths https://psychcentral.com/blog/new-research-may-support-the-existence-of-empaths/ https://www.acesconnection.com/blog/the-new-science-of-empathy-and-empaths-drjudithorloff-com https://www.psychologicalscience.org/observer/i-feel-your-pain-the-neuroscience-of-empathy https://www.iflscience.com/brain/researchers-find-physical-differences-empathetic-peoples-brains/ https://www.spiritualmechanic.com/2013/05/the-science-behind-being-an-empath/ https://www.eliselebeau.com/the-empath-experience
