Do you know if you are an empath? I sure went for a long time without knowing! Empaths have a unique energetic blueprint which creates interesting (and often overwhelming) challenges for us as we go about engaging in the world around us. However, our unique energetic wiring also endows us with incredible gifts, ones that allow us to thrive once we learn how to energetically “master” our energy.
Do any of the following resonate? Do you:
- Often feel drained after interacting with people, even those you love, while they walk away feeling better from having interacted with you?
- Feel that setting boundaries is an ongoing challenge?
- Ever find you “absorb” other people’s moods or emotions, or that your mood changes drastically and for no apparent reason?
Have difficultly discerning where your energy bubble ends, and someone else’s begins?
- Often find yourself the “default” caretaker, the one taking more than her/his share of energetic responsibility in relationships?
- Experience “mystery” symptoms, physical challenges that defy diagnosis or remedy? Or…
- Does the weight of what’s happening in the world seem to literally weigh you down?
- Do people call you “sensitive,” and do you ever feel completely misunderstood by others because of it?
- Do you find the “spirit realm” to be much more inviting place to hang out in than here, on earth?
