How To Help An Empath Survive And Thrive With Sensitivity

Dr. Judith Orloff shows how to help an empath survive and thrive with their sensitivities in this free video event hosted by the Shift Network. 

If you’re an empath or sensitive person, it’s more important than ever to reign in your extrasensory “feelers” - and start using your special intuitive powers to attend to your own physical and emotional wellbeing - so you’re not energetically drained by the world’s suffering, others’ stresses - and your own emotional triggers.

What is a Psychic Empath?

  • A psychic empath has the ability to sense and absorb other people's emotions and energies. This requires a high level of self-awareness, mindfulness, and the ability to distinguish between your own feelings and those of others. Regular meditation can help to enhance your intuitive abilities. It's also important to learn grounding and shielding techniques to protect yourself from negative energies. Remember, being an empath is not just about feeling the  emotions of others, but also understanding them, which can often lead to providing comfort and healing.

Comments About How To Be An Empath

Why Being An Empath Is As Exhausting As It Is Rewarding - by Larry Armstead

Of all the psychic gifts, being an empath is probably one of the more exhausting and rewarding. Imagine walking into any room and feeling residual energy from someone else that has once been there in the past as well as the active energy of those people around the room in the present.

Tonight, I got a call from a long-lost friend that I worked with many moons ago. At the risk of sharing her real name, we will call her Regina. The last time Regina and I hung out was at her house in the middle of nowhere. She and her eldest son had some real life haunting experiences at their home, and she asked if I’d come over to help assist the spirit to the white light. I did so, but it was at that time that Regina informed me that she and her son also had this highly sensitive gift but didn’t know how to use or control it.

When I spoke with her tonight, she had a completely different perspective and was much more positive about being highly empathetic. She had read my help on living as an empath and now knew her ability to understand the feelings of others was her personal psychic gift.

Being an Empath

Pros And Cons Of Being An Empath
In my own experience this is what it feels like to be an empath.

1. Empaths typically identify as loners. Since something such as crowds, parties, and other large groups tend to wear down and drain empaths, they prefer to have time alone so they can recharge their batteries. I’ve known empaths to get overwhelmed and hide in the restroom just to get away for some brief alone time to recharge and to diffuse the emotion overload of feeling the negative emotions of those around them.

2. Empaths are also people who are highly sensitive. They’re often told that they need to quit being so sensitive, but that’s easier said than done. Their energy is especially wide open which can make themselves prone to be givers (even to their own detriment). They also tend to easily get their feelings hurt.

3. Empaths are typically introverts. They typically do not make friends easily. In the case that the empath is an extrovert, they tend to limit their time in crowds and around everyone. Ideally, one-on-one conversations and meetings are the best.

4. Empaths have really refined guts. The empath is someone who is likely to be much more intuitive than the average person. For these people their gut feelings dictate how they live their lives and experience the world. This helps them to make better informed decisions about people.

5. Romantic relationships are challenging. While they are likely true hopeless romantics, this notion only goes so far. They still do not welcome people in their space emotionally, and they cherish their time alone. This is because being an emotional sponge they spend so much time with the feelings and emotions of others that they need to maintain the relationship with their own identity.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of things to look out for, but it is a pretty good start.
