So many of us are natural empaths but do not necessarily realise it. The typical traits of an empath are someone that has a sensitivity to feel other people’s emotions and energy. An empath will often also have a natural intuition guided by a strong gut feeling, especially when they are conversing with friends or family.
Are you an Empath?
If you resonate with the following typical traits, then you may well be an empath:
1. Emotions – you absorb other people’s emotions, whether they are happy, sad, angry or anxious. You can often sense someone’s emotions as soon as you walk in a room.
2. Intuitive – you have a strong gut feeling which is often proved right.
3. Independent – empaths often need to have time alone to recharge their batteries. They sometimes find being constantly around other people draining, so even a quick escape will do them the world of good.
4. Sensitive – you make a good listener and are a natural nurturer, but you can be easily hurt by others, more so than non-empaths.
5. Crowded places – empaths find crowded places overwhelming because it intensifies their empathy and the energy they are picking up from others.
If you’re an empath, then it may be useful to know that being in nature is one of the best ways to re-charge and replenish your energy. Avoid places where the senses are overwhelming – very noisy places, strong smells, or extremely crowded or confined places. Steer clear of people who drain your energy, those who love drama, are self-absorbed, angry, attention seeking or always playing the victim. These types of people can make you feel weak and unworthy but will also drain your energy.
As an empath, wherever you are and whomever you’re with, you will be absorbing energy and emotions like a sponge. You can protect yourself by asking for a while light to be put around you and meditation will also help you to calm and centre yourself. Avoiding negative situations and restricting time with energy draining people will also help. Walking out in fresh air and nature will help remove negative energy which has been absorbed.
