"Don't mind her; she's a very sensitive child." Does that sound familiar? Have you always felt other people's emotions as strongly as your own? Maybe crowds are difficult for you, and a restaurant full of emotions, voices, and energy to contend with makes you want to hide in a closet. Welcome, beautiful soul. You might be a highly sensitive person, also known as an empath. Let's take a closer look at what being an empath means, how you can spot one in the wild, and give you unique access to my very own free empath toolbox to guide you on your way.
No, it isn't just the newest spiritual buzzword. Empaths typically come with a higher level of empathy than your average person. On the one hand, this is a magical superpower that can help you connect with others on our magnificent planet more easily. On the other hand, it may make you more anxious and fearful. It's hard work carrying around that many feelings!
It is a basic human instinct for most. We feel for the people going through struggles. We feel for the heartbroken, overworked, and mistreated. We are all empaths to a degree.
But there are some that walk this earth that are born with a natural sensitivity that allows them to take on the energy, feelings, and emotions of others and not even be aware of it.
Not knowing this sensitivity can leave one feeling drained, exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious, and depleted. This sensitivity can feel more like a curse than a gift and that is why I created My Empowered Empath Course.
I went most of my life taking on the energy and emotions of others and labeling it my own.
I felt the intense of emotions of others peoples anger, heartbreak, and grief.
I would deal with energetic overwhelm in busy, congested places and then need days to recuperate.
If so, you might be an empath my friend.
