Empaths often get overwhelmed because we have a tendency to OVERGIVE.
So I thought I'd leave you with a bit of encouragement today.
If you could give ONE piece of encouragement for all to hear, what would it be?
Here's mine: small acts of service are more natural than overgiving.
How do you know that you're *NOT* overgiving?
Small acts of service can look like this:
Your action step:
We're diving deep and discussing what types of energy vampires can slowly drain the energy out of our daily energy “bank account” I thought I’d give you a sneak peek.
Last week, I talked about the Space Invader Energy Vampire. If you missed it, I also created a blog post about it here:
Here's an interesting type of energy vampire that I think everyone has in common. The Victim. Yes - I know, we’ve all unintentionally settled into the victim mentality every now and then but we don’t want to live there.
I’m talking about the type of Energy Vampire Victim who is living in their “victimhood”.
As empaths, these energy vampires can really drain our energy and leave us feeling like we've absorbed all of their problems. We walk away feeling heavy, frustrated, and wondering what just happened to make us feel...
During the month of October, I'm adding to my Empath Collective library. This is one of the biggest projects I’ve taken on throughout the whole time my Empath Collective has been together.

First things first... You've probably noticed that I frequently talk about energy fields. Yes, we all have this energetic border around us that determines our comfort level. This is also known as personal space.
There have also been a number of questions about being an empath, what types of empaths there are, and some of you are even worried that you're NOT an empath.
Please don't worry (seriously, leave that to us). So why would you want to hang around if you're not an empath or a highly sensitive person (HSP)?
Back to my question. Have you repeatedly been told you're too sensitive? I have. And it made me feel even worse for actually having these feelings. The more I pushed the feelings down, the sicker I got. I was exhausted, I isolated and was fearful that the emotions would come back stronger (and they did).
As empaths, this can make us feel frustrated, fearful, and stuck. It's a terrible way to live. When started embracing this gift, I really started to live. Trust me - I fought it.
When I decided to put myself at...
