Empath

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

An empath is one who psychically tunes into another person or group of people. This may be done consciously or unconsciously. For example, it may be a case of precognition, as in waking in the middle of the night aware of a disaster that has taken place and then finding, the following morning, that there was such a disaster. Or it may be a case of having an uncertain feeling of unease for a period and then, when a national calamity occurs, having the feeling dissipate. It is more specific than simply being a psychic.
