(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.
