A remarkable story about life after death has gone viral, all because of a special tattoo.
In an Instagram post, a California woman named Madie Johnson explains her new tattoo and the miracle behind it.
Johnson’s Aunt Tina had died after suffering a severe heart attack. She was brought back to life four times by first responders before making it to a hospital.
There, her aunt was “put on a defibrillator” and woke up. She was intubated and unable to speak, so she asked for a pen scrawling the message “it’s real.”Related
That “It’s real” message is now a memorial, tattooed on Maddie’s wrist, spreading her eternal hope to those around her.
Maddie writes the whole story on Instagram saying:
“A little over a year ago my Aunt Tina, one of the most amazing, discerning, and healthy people I know had an unexpected cardiac arrest and according to doctors had died and was brought back to life four times by my Uncle Brian and first responders before arriving to the hospital. She was put on a defibrillator and after miraculously waking up the first thing she did, unable to speak because she was intubated, was ask for a pen and in my cousin’s journal wrote ‘it’s real’. The people in the room asked ‘what’s real?’ and she responded by pointing up to heaven with tears in her eyes.
Her story is too real not to share and has given me a stronger confidence in a faith that so often goes unseen. It has given me a tangibleness to an eternal hope that is not too far away. I love you @_tinahines! The way you boldly love Jesus and others has changed the way I hope to live and love.”
This is the account of a boy who had been pronounced clinically dead thrice. However, it was obviously not his time to go, so after he finally came to, he astounded his mother with what he saw—in Heaven.
It all started one morning in 1997. Eight-year-old Landon Whitley was sitting in the backseat of his parent’s Pontiac Sunfire, on a trip back home from church. It was while crossing an intersection that Landon’s dad, Andy, started yelling. In a flash, an ambulance, which was returning to its station, T-boned the family’s car.
“I didn’t see the ambulance coming but I remember him yelling. That was the last thing I heard from him,” Landon’s mother, Julie Kemp, who was behind the wheel, told CBN.
Landon had sustained massive head trauma and remained in a coma, showing no signs of life.
Two weeks later, miraculously, Landon woke up. And much to everyone’s surprise, he didn’t suffer any brain damage.
What’s even more unbelievable was Landon’s response after Julie broke the news of his father’s death.
When Julie asked Landon gently, “Do you know where your dad is at?” Landon replied unexpectedly, “Yes, I know where he’s at. I saw him in heaven.”
Landon even told her he saw “streets of gold,” Jesus, and angels. Not only that, he explained that he met his father’s friend Olan Palmer and his son, Neil Palmer. Both were killed in car accidents.
“I remember us all like standing in a square. Never one of us said a word to each other, but we were just all standing there,” a grown-up Landon recalled years later.
Yet, that’s not all Landon had seen. He remembers telling his mom at the time, “I saw your other two kids.”
“My mom had two miscarriages before me that I had never known about, never heard about,” Landon recounted to Fox News. “I was able to see them.”
“I knew that they were my siblings even though no one had ever told me about them. Just being in Heaven, I guess you know—you know your own or you know who everyone is,” he added.
This incredible story is “a huge blessing” for Julie. She was able to gain strength from it, and “I was able to use this story to help others not to give up.”
“There is a heaven, there are angels,” Landon said. “Life does get better at the end.”
The mother-and-son duo have also written a book called the “Highway to Heaven,” which accounts Landon’s journey to Heaven and provides a glimpse of what a wonderful place it is. The book is meant to provide comfort to kids who have lost their loved ones.
A MAN who had a near death experience believes he saw Jesus in the afterlife who gave him the option of eternal peace.
After being involved in a car accident a man, who only gives his name as Gary, temporarily died. Before he was resuscitated by paramedics, Gary believes he crossed over to the afterlife where he gained proof that Jesus is real. Writing for the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, Gary described his vivid experience of life after death.
He said: “I was in blackness but with hundreds of sparkly lights. I was a little scared because I could see my hunched-up body and knew that I’d passed over.
“To my left and in a field, there were many people. I saw my grandma and her sister who had passed in the previous year. The colours were so vivid! In front of me was a medium-sized stream with a white bridge over it.
“Jesus was standing on the other side of the bridge. There was a huge, sunlight object shining down on his left side. But it didn’t hurt me to look at it.
“Meanwhile, a man stopped and ran over to my body. He cradled my head in his lap, telling me to wake up.

“I heard in my head, Jesus asking me, ‘Gary, would you like to stay for eternal peace and happiness or go back?’ I thought, ‘I’d like to go back’.”
Suddenly, Gary was back in his body, but he said the experience has changed him forever.
He wrote: “If an experience like this doesn’t change you, then there’s something wrong with you.”
Every angel sighting is a one-of-a-kind encounter.
How to Tell If You’ve Encountered an Angel in Physical Form
Angels are always near—sending us wise guidance, offering us healing energy, protecting us or fighting our battles, and sometimes simply being present with us through life’s ups and downs so we’re never alone. As I explain in my book Angel Insights, we know angels are near because we sense their presence, hear their voices in our inner ear or thoughts, dream about them, receive signs and synchronicities from them, see images they place in our mind’s eye, and are gifted with angelic insight into complex situations where there is no logical basis for our understanding. At times people even get proof that angels are near in one of the most powerful ways of all—angels appear before humans in physical form.
Why don’t angels always appear in physical form? The angels tell me that if they did, it would be too overwhelming and distracting for humans. Angels are really part of another dimension, called heaven, and simply don’t match the dense physical matter of earth and its inhabitants. And there are so many angels surrounding and watching over humans that they wouldn’t all be able to fit here amongst us in physical form. The short answer is: The veil between the dimensions of heaven and earth exists for a reason. Angels will appear in physical form (usually as humans) if they need to interact with you in a practical way to accomplish a clear objective (push your car out of a snowdrift when you’re stuck on an isolated road, or pay your grocery bill when you discover that you’re short on money in line). Angels will also appear in physical form (sometimes with wings) if they feel that being seen by you will increase your faith or peace of mind.
There are many ways an angel can appear in physical form. If you think you’ve seen an angel, the list below should help you clarify and better understand the experience. If you’ve never encountered an angel in physical form, read the list below carefully—you may have seen an angel and just don’t realize it! Most people see an angel in physical form very rarely, if ever. Some folks will go their whole lives having great faith and yet never see an angel. Just remember, angels are nondenominational beings who love and cherish each human equally. An angel’s love for you is unconditional and absolute—you can never do anything to change it. Whether you see an angel or not, angels are always near, always just over your shoulder!
Angels Appear as Light
Is it any wonder that angels sometimes appear to humans in physical form as light? Light can be seen but is still abstract in this dimension, an ethereal form of energy that matches the angel’s vibration (as opposed to other denser forms of matter like rocks, pencils or humans). Common ways that angels will appear to humans as a light source include: bursts of small, colored lights across your field of vision; glowing orbs; a constant stream of very bright white light which, like the sun, is difficult to look into directly. Angels could appear as small bursts of colored light at anytime, like when you’re sitting at your desk or making dinner (if you see this continually, get an eye exam to rule out any issues with your vision). Glowing orbs and streams of bright light are a touch more dramatic and showy, and will usually happen when you are alone and can give the experience your undivided attention!
Angels Appear as Shadows, Clouds and Mist
Ever swear you saw something out of the corner of your eye, then turned around and peered at that spot for a good look, only to see…nothing? You may have gotten a glimpse of an angel. Have you ever seen a cloud that looked just like an angel, maybe when you were down and needed a reminder of Spirit, or when you were feeling carefree and peaceful? Very likely it was an angel or group of angels forming their energy into a giant cloud in the sky to give the people below a reminder of the angels’ presence in our lives. Angels can also appear as what looks like mist—a white, gossamer substance that may take on the loose outline of a figure, perhaps near your bed when you wake up from a dream.
Angels Appear Wearing Wings
When people think of angels, they usually think of wings. Wings that are big and white and full of feathers. The stereotypical or traditional angel image is an angel with two enormous wings, wearing a long white robe with a golden belt. It’s important to note that I’ve spoken with hundreds of people who’ve seen angels of this description—and in all ethnicities (African, Inuit, Western European, Native American, Japanese). This imagery of the winged angel does not come from myth but experience: Sometimes angels really do appear to humans in this manner. It is the most disarming and alarming way an angel can appear to a human, which is why the angels in the Bible instruct humans to “fear not” when they encounter an angel with wings. I saw an angel with wings and a flowing robe once, and it is one of my most cherished—but also most shocking and terrifying—memories. While angels would never harm a hair on our heads, it is still very unsettling to be suddenly confronted with a winged being of great power and strength from another dimension. Why do angels take this form? Is this what angels “really” look like? The angels tell me they sometimes take this form because angels know this form is familiar to humans, so it’s an easy way for angels to identify themselves without a shadow of a doubt. Likewise this physical form is close to what a human looks like, but different enough that it registers as an angel to us.
Angels Appear as Humans
It is far more common for angels to appear in physical form as humans than wearing wings. Often an angel will appear as a human because the angel wants to offer you assistance—a good Samaritan who changes your tire, a fellow shopper who helps you pick the perfect outfit for a first date. And the best way for angels to work in public around other people unnoticed is in human form. Maybe an angel appeared to you as another patient in a hospital waiting room, a stranger who loaned you kind words or a hand to hold while you waited for news on a loved one’s condition or some test results of your own. Maybe an angel appeared as a stranger walking along the road by your farm just as some hay caught on fire, and with this stranger’s help you were able to get the fire under control before it spread to the barn. Angels who appear as humans usually disappear just as quickly as they arrive, and often without a trace. You might return to a restaurant where a kind waiter helped you settle your screaming toddler down a few days before, only to be told by the manager that there is no waiter working at this restaurant who fits that description. Or you might go to thank the woman who just rescued your husband from drowning, but when you turn around you see there is no sign of this stranger on the beach—not even a single footprint in the sand walking away. Angels who appear as humans often have very kind eyes and a peaceful, calming energy. They are remarkably helpful, and usually don’t say much though what they do say is very poignant.
During the near-death experience (NDE), the New Zealand woman apparently saw a heavenly being whom she believes is an angel.
All religions, including Hinduism, Christianity and Islam, proclaim that humans will live after death, and the real eternal journey of all living beings begin after taking the last breath. Adding heat to their views, a New Zealand woman named Katrina has now shared her near-death experience (NDE) where she apparently saw a being whom she believes is an angel.
Katrina made these revelations on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF). As per Katrina, she died for some moments after attempting suicide following episodes of depression. The NDE victim revealed that her body started floating in a dark place soon after the last breath, and she claimed that someone literally cut her soul’s cord connection to the body.
“My spirit body was floating in the darkness and it was a lonely place. It felt like someone came up behind me with scissors and cut the cord connected to my body. I knew I was dead and couldn’t go back. My thoughts were very fast, like lightning, and my mind was so clear and sharp. My senses were all heightened and my emotions felt more intense,” wrote Katrina in her NDE testimonial.
Katrina also added that she saw a bright being during the near-death experience episode. She revealed that this being was pure white, and it was almost 8 to 9 feet tall.
“I tried to fly or direct my floating towards the light, but my progress wasn’t very good. The light came to me in a zigzag, erratic pattern and at great speed. It was at that moment that I realized the light was a Being. The Being of light was pure white and about 8 to 9 feet tall. I had a peaceful, loving feeling being in this Being’s beautiful presence. I believe that Being was an angel. However, I felt like the Being was waiting for something,” added Katrina.
The New Zealand woman claimed that she is now living as God has given her a second chance. She also made it clear that she felt pure bliss after the death, and all she experienced was intense euphoria.
Katrina’s testimonial has now gone viral on the internet, and many religious believers claim that life after death is a reality. As per these people, the afterlife is real, and humans used to live in the form of souls even after death.
CASSADAGA — Sunflowers, the universal symbol of those who believe that life continues after death and some people have the ability to communicate with the deceased, are sprinkled throughout this tiny hamlet.
The Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, a home to mediums and healers about 35 miles north of Orlando, is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, marking the evolution of a community on a “vortex of psychic energy” where the gifts of spiritualists can thrive and believers can worship in peace.
On Saturday, the camp will kick off a monthly series of celebrations, culminating with a masquerade ball in December, at the sanctuary for 78 residents immersed in the metaphysical world that draws curious visitors from around the world.
“Karma and destiny” brought Reverend Don Zanghi from Buffalo, N.Y., to the camp 28 years ago. He teaches a Sunday morning service, Lyceum, for anyone who wishes to learn about spiritualism.
“The whole idea of having a camp is because the energy is here, you’re surrounded by it all the time — you’re breathing it, you’re living it, you’re feeling it — it’s like going to school,” said Zanghi, a 70-year-old medium and healer.
The Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association began as a 35-acre winter haven in 1894 founded by George Colby, a trance medium from New York who was guided by a Native American spirit named “Seneca” to Central Florida.
It was designated as a historic district in 1991 and operates as a nonprofit organization under a board of trustees.
Dawn Medley, camp activity director, said visitors are welcome from sunup to sundown — even skeptics — and that spiritualism isn’t an evangelical religion.
“We demonstrate. We don’t go out and feel the need to have people come here and believe what we believe,” Medley said. “We really encourage free thinking — we want people to come to their own conclusion.”
Many residents offer services in their homes and apartments at an independently determined rate. Mediums and healers advertised on signs around the camp are labeled as “certified,” a distinction that applies only to members who have undergone training and a verification of experience and skills.
Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp
It’s been 125 years since George P. Colby, a trance medium from New York, traveled to Central Florida and set up camp in what later became known as the spiritualist community of Cassadaga, unofficially dubbed as the “psychic capitol of the world.” May 2, 2019.
Camp guidelines discourage the use of “gimmicky” tools such as pendulums and crystal balls.
“We’re going to give you evidence of who we’re connecting with – it could be could be a physical description, could be a shared memory, could be how they passed or something about their personality … any number of things,” Medley said. “And then we’ll give you the information they wish to bring.”
The long, curved pavement of Cassadaga Road serves as a physical divide between the camp and a cluster of businesses that also offer spiritual services but have a long-standing disagreement over the tools of the trade.[
“They’re just trying to separate themselves because they feel that we’re hokey,” said Varney Pearce, store manager for Purple Rose Trading Company, a third-generation family owned shop. The 119-year-old building with an attached haunted history museum sells “esoteric accessories” — crystals, stones and astrology charts.
“As far as tools go, I know readers that prefer tarot because it’s a visual representation of what they’re telling you,” Pearce said. “People will see the devil or death card and freak out but it can actually mean change or the death of a career into something new – it’s a good thing, something new. It’s all perspective.”
Although camp members don’t use tools, they do embrace technology such as cameras and voice recorders that document physical phenomenon.
Medley gives a nighttime tour of the camp — often accompanied by Gretel, one of several outdoor feline inhabitants — using flashlights, which spirits can employ to announce their presence.e
“When that light turns on, it’s something everybody sees,” she said.
Cassadaga, the camp and town immortalized in a Tom Petty song, has been known for decades as a quirky travel destination. It’s listed on RoadsideAmerica.com, dubbed as an online guide to “offbeat tourist attractions.”
Visitors are drawn to landmarks like Hotel Cassadaga, a reportedly haunted structure with “friendly spirits” that dates back to the 1920s. It was sold by the camp during the Great Depression and now operates under private ownership.
The camp recently created an elaborate outdoor fairy trail, in collaboration with the West Volusia Tourism Office, which feature 6-foot tall pastel butterfly wings that are already making the rounds on Instagram.[
At Saturday’s event, Volusia County Council member Barbara Girtman will read a proclamation and camp residents will unearth a time capsule that was buried during the 100-year mark.
The camp is also raising money for the upkeep of its seven historical buildings, including Colby Memorial Temple, to preserve its legacy into the next century.
“Death has always been scary for people and when they see proof that life continues on, it’s quite comforting and soothing,” Medley said. “There will always be generations looking for these answers.”

A MAN who claims he died for 15 minutes during a shocking accident at sea recalled during a documentary what he apparently saw.
People who believe in an afterlife claim the essential part of an individual’s identity, or the stream of consciousness, continues after the death of the physical body. Some people who have come close to being pronounced officially dead claim to have been given a brief insight into what life after death may be like. David Bennet, a former research diver and Chief Engineer of Vessel Aloha, claims he witnessed a glimpse of what this might look like.
Mr Bennet detailed his claims to Morgan Freeman during his documentary “The Story of God”.
He said in 2017: “Back in 1983, off the California coast, there was a storm with about 25 to 30ft seas and so we started heading in.
“All of a sudden, we fell off a 30-footer – that fast – and we just slid right off.
“I looked up and there was another one and it came right down on top of us.
“I was in the bow, it catapulted me into the sea and I was just tumbled and tossed like a rag doll.”
Mr Bennet then recalled the moment he believed he knew he was physically dead.
He added: “You can only hold your breath for so long, then you reach a point of release, where you just, you just let go and breathe in the salt water.
“It’s quite a violent way to die.
“I had totally lost my awareness of my body and the ocean at this point.”
However, there was a moment of clarity, when Mr Bennet knew he would return.
He continued: “Then I noticed this light, it was millions upon millions of fragments of lights in all different colours.
“They were all dancing and swirling, but kind of like they were one mind – I knew I had left my body.
“As I approached this mass of light, it was a familiar home and it was a relationship that was so much deeper than any I’d ever had.
“Then I reached a certain point where these millions of fragments of light spoke and they said ’this is not your time’.
“‘You must return, you have a purpose.’”
Mr Bennet then explained how his soul apparently returned to his body.
He detailed: “I was watching my body and I was mesmerized because I knew I was going to go back in that body.
“Then the next waves came and pushed my body against the boat – pushing the salt water out of my lungs – and I was suddenly alive again.”
Asked by Mr Morgan how long he thought he had been underwater, Mr Bennett responded: “The crew said I was there for anything between 15 and 18 minutes.”
The revelation comes after a scientist claimed life after death was possible.
Dr Sam Parnia revealed during the same series how he studied more than 100 cases of cardiac arrest survivors.
He said in 2017: It’s important to understand that when a person is dying and they’ve turned into a cadaver, it’s only at that point that the cells inside the body start to undergo a process of death, which can take hours, if not days.
“So actually we have this window of time where we can bring people back to life and the experiences that they have given us is an indication of what it is like to go through death.
“Today we call the soul consciousness in science, so we can test the theory scientifically.
“The evidence we have is that when a person dies, that part that makes us who we are – the soul or mind, or whatever you call it – it does not become annihilated.”
When you see a dead body, you realize the form is still there, but the essence of that being is not there. There is only a shell. The life within that form is gone. ~Eckhart Tolle
If you’re like me, you read the passage above and want to ask Eckhart Tolle: So where does “the form” go when we die? With a little digging, I found that Tolle, one of the brightest spiritual minds of our time, has an answer to that question: We are transformed and we either join the source or we return to experience other forms of awakening.
Tolle’s ideas mirror the Hindu belief in reincarnation, the notion that life consists of a continuous cycle of birth, death and rebirth. The goal in this (and every) life is to achieve a favorable rebirth by doing what is right, thereby achieving good karma. The ultimate goal: to move beyond the cycle of death and rebirth and to attain a transcendent state known as moksa.
Photographer and fellow blogger C. Jennings Pender has arrived at a similar conclusion as Tolle. He believes that “death is not the end” and is simply “a transitional state, the equivalent of taking off a coat and putting on a new one on.” In his book Taking Off a Coat, Ruminations on the Infinite Soul, Pender writes:
As a tree loses its leaves, the soul loses its shell. The tree will sprout back to life in spring, will sprout new leaves. In turn, the soul will find a new shell to incarnate into when the time is right, when the soul has rested and learned from its past incarnation.
But if reincarnation is real, where’s the proof?
There’s an amazing amount of evidence that reincarnation is real in Jim B. Tucker’s book Life Before Life, Children’s Memories of Previous Lives. The author is a child psychiatrist and distinguished professor at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, and for decades has been part of a team studying the phenomena of children who report memories of previous lives. They now have more than 2,5oo cases on file.
Tucker points out that the idea of reincarnation been accepted by many throughout history and into the present day, including the ancient Greeks, the Hindus and Buddhists in Asia, West Africans, many Native American groups and even some early Christians. In fact, there may be more people in the world that believe in reincarnation than those who do not.
In the cases Tucker has studied, children as young as 2, 3 and 4-years old have either claimed they were deceased family members (“I’m your grandmother”) or describe lives far removed from their present life (“You’re not my family, my family lives in a village across the river”), remembering people they knew and events they had experienced in previous lives.
In case after case, children begin talking to their parents about their past lives, often demanding to be taken to their “real family” or the homes and neighborhoods where they once lived. After researching the child’s claims, the family often discovers they fit the life of a person who has died in the recent past. The children sometimes even have the same birthmarks as the deceased.
Tucker reports that the children tend to talk about people and events from their past lives until they are 6 or 7-years old and will often then go on to lead normal lives after that, not mentioning them again. Almost all discuss just one previous life, the one that occurred previous to their current life, and have vivid recollections of their deaths. (In one story a child claims he “was hit by a truck and killed,” a story that wound up matching the death of the deceased person he claimed to be.)
When it comes to evaluating these child past-life cases, Tucker and his team have a rigorous process by which they attempt to eliminate fraud, fantasy or knowledge acquired through ordinary means as a basis for the child’s claims. The alternative often points to the idea that once a person dies, their consciousness does not cease to exist. Instead, it survives death and is reborn into another life.
What happens at the moment of death? While some children report hanging around earth, recalling specific (and confirmed) details about their funeral, others talk of “floating in the semi-darkness” and “moving to a light.” One 6-year old boy, who remembered a previous life as his mother’s father said: “When you die, you don’t go right to heaven. You go to different levels—here, then here, then here.” The boy moved his hand up each time.
What you see in this waiting room between death and rebirth seems predetermined by your religion and culture. In the US, you may recall seeing Jesus or God, while in Sri Lanka, you may meet a friendly king in their palace, or in India, a holy man with a long beard. While most of these cases come from countries where the idea of reincarnation is taught at an early age, there are many examples of apparent reincarnation that come from the United States.
Here are two cases with a trait found in several reincarnation stories told by Tucker, where children are reborn into the same extended families.
While being given a bath, a 4-year old girl in Ohio named Abby tells her mother, “I used to give you baths when you were my age.” When pressed about what she meant, Abby informs her mom “I was your grandma, Ruthie.” The mother did in fact have a great-grandmother named Ruth who had been dead for many years, and had never been mentioned to the child. Abby’s mom had no recollection of being bathed by her grand-grandmother, but later established this, and other statements told by the child about Ruth, including a description of her house, were all true.
John McConnell, a retired NYC policeman, was shot dead while working as a security guard. A few years later, his daughter later gave birth to a son named William. One day, when a 3-year old William began acting up, his mother threatened to spank him. He replied, “Mom, when you were a little girl and I was your daddy, I never spanked you.” Surprised, the boy’s mom begins asking him questions, including the names of her childhood cats. He identifies them all, including a cat named Boston. When asked Boston’s nickname, he correctly replies “Boss.” The cats had never been previously discussed with William.
Jim B. Tucker has since written a book that focuses solely on child reincarnation tales from the United States titled Return to Life: Extraordinary Cases of Children Who Remember Past Lives. If you need further proof that death may be no more than “taking off a coat,” it’s a great place to start.
Empaths are highly sensitive people who have a keen capacity to sense what other individuals around them are feeling and thinking.
Empathic persons don’t have the same filters which other people do to block out stimulation. As a consequence, they absorb into their own bodies both the stressful and positive energies around them.
Being empathic has incredible benefits, like:
a deeper connection to other people;
greater compassion, intuition, and creativity.
“Empathy is about standing in someone else’s shoes, feeling with his or her heart, seeing with his or her eyes. Not only is empathy hard to outsource and automate, but it makes the world a better place.” – Daniel H. Pink
Note – being empathic doesn’t necessarily mean you will want to help someone in need, nevertheless, it is typically an important first step toward a compassionate action.
What Is A Heyoka Empath
A large proportion of humanity is able to empathize (in one form or the other) with others. However, the most valued type of empathic archetypes is known as ”Heyoka.” But, only few can be considered Heyoka empaths.
”Heyoka” is a Native American term that means a ”fool” or a ”sacred clown.” The term is also used to refer to people who are emotional mirrorsto the ones around them. In Lakota people, a Heyoka uses the wind as sticks to beat the drum of thunder.
In English, it would be more appropriate to describe a Heyoka as an individual who acts in a way that is the opposite of normal and sees the world differently.
A Heyoka empath is also called a Pain-Eater due to his ability to absorb and cleanse negative energies around him.

In Tibetan Buddhism, a Heyoka empath would be referred to as someone who has the attributes of ”crazy wisdom.” Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche describes “crazy wisdom” as a state of mind which has the quality of early morning – sparkling, fresh, and completely awake. The term ”crazy wisdom” also describes a controversial path to self-discovery which is viewed by many as irrational or abnormal.
Moreover, the Heyoka empath is a jester, contrarian, and satirist, who speaks, reacts, and moves in an opposite fashion to the society.
In conclusion, a Heyoka empath is any soul who chose to come here as an awakener of other individuals through non-conventional means.
”For people who are as poor as us, who have lost everything, who had to endure so much death and sadness, laughter is a precious gift. When we were dying like flies from white man’s disease, when we were driven into reservations, when the government rations did not arrive and we were starving, watching the pranks and capers of Heyoka were a blessing.” – John Fire Lame Deer
Note – a Heyoka empath may occasionally appear to be a highly negative person, and individuals who are with them may experience distress or anger, however, the Heyoka is just revealing a person’s true self.
9 Signs You May Be A Heyoka Empath
#1 You Can Feel Other People’s Emotions
If you can feel other individuals’ emotions and instinctively know what they need to heal, you may be a Heyoka empath. A Heyoka will not only show you your faults but he will also show you a way to overcome those faults.
Note – extremely strong Heyoka empaths may even feel people’s emotions and not really know the person or where she is.

#2 You Can Always Spot a Liar
No matter how kind your coworker is being or how great this girl is, if you are a Heyoka, you can always spot a little white lie.
This happens especially when someone is being insincere with her or his feelings or expressions of emotion.
A Heyoka empath uses humor to open people up so that people energetically move to a place where they can absorb healing energies and wisdom.
#4 You Routinely Interrupt People
Do you find yourself routinely interrupting people even though you don’t mean to? A Heyoka empath may struggle to wait their turn.
This isn’t out of rudeness but rather it is since they have so many new thoughts and ideas appearing in their heads and they worry they will forget that one important thought, hence, they push it into the conversation as quickly as they can.
#5 The Great Mirror
As an emotional mirror, whenever a Heyoka empath senses an emotional reaction in you, he will use it as a guide of what to reflect back to you so that he will help you most on your journey.
Note – through the mirroring of a Heyoka empath you may discover a part of yourself that you never knew existed.
#6 You Inspire In Others Life-Changing Insights
When you have a deep conversation with a Heyoka, you often may experience life-changing insights.
#7 You Are Creative
