To determine if you're an empath you need to take a quick self-assessment test.
Being an Empath doesn't have to be a curse. I like to think of it as a gift. If you're an empath, don't push this ability to the side. When you push away this divine gift, you run the risk of blocking creativity, isolating, attracting energy vampires, turning to unhealthy substances and habits, harming relationships, and even getting sick.
We'll be using tools like meditation, writing exercises, reiki, grounding yoga sequences and other tools to nudge you in the right direction.
Do you think you might be an empath?
Have you been told you're "too sensitive"? I'd love to know!
Join my online empath support community. I'd love for you to be a part of our growing community.
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...
I posted the Are You an Empath? quiz on our private Facebook group the other day and the response was overwhelming. Yes, there are a lot of us Empaths and Highly Sensitive People (HSP) out there in the world and many of us don't know what to do with this realization.
Discovering that you're an empath can be a revelation!!!!
Wondering what to do from here? Once you take the quiz, you'll be added to the list and you'll be notified as soon as the doors open. Oh, you'll also get a free meditation download (of course). Win-Win!!
I've received so many emails with a flood of questions asking what it's like being an empath, what types of empaths are out there, and how they can manage this divine trait. There are a variety of empaths so I thought I'd focus on one at a time. I get it. It's easy to get overwhelmed with so much information.
If you haven't done so already, please take the empath quiz so you'll have a better idea of what it's like being an empath or a highly sensitive person (HSP).
To put it simply, physical empaths absorb or manifest symptoms that aren't their own.
For me, if I see someone hurt, my body physically takes on symptoms and it becomes very uncomfortable. As a kid, when someone would talk about the details of an injury or when I'd even see something on TV, I'd say "That makes the bottom of my feet hurt." (what an odd thing to say, right?) As a kid, that was the best way to describe it.
This is hard for the other 80% of the...
We’re at our best when we’re growing, but that growth often comes with growing pains.
I’m here to talk about what happens when we experience emotional triggers. For empaths and highly sensitive people, the struggle is definitely real.
Emotional triggers can be anything from a co-worker making a rude comment about our appearance to a relative commenting on a relationship status. When this happens, we withdraw, feel hurt, angry, and can lash out.
As empaths and HSP, we can feel incredibly drained and exhausted, especially when we feel like we have to play defense against painful words and behaviors. That takes a LOT of energy and it's definitely no way to live. .
The frustrating part of it all is that these behaviors can bring up all the doubt that you may have thought you buried a long time ago.
These beliefs are based on fears—they are not reality. You don’t want to be triggered all the time. It is exhausting and painful, especially for highly sensitive...
