10 Signs You Are An Empath & Your Kid Might Be Too
You’re probably thinking right now, what the heck is an empath? What do you mean by my kid might be one too?!
Let me start with that…
What is an empath?
Empaths are highly sensitive individuals who have the ability to feel emotions and sense the energies around them. This might be extremely overwhelming for an empath but also beneficial. The term empath is use by the spiritual community to symbolize an individual with special psychic abilities. Psychologists describe it more as a person who has great empathy toward others, often absorbing their pain as if it was their own.
If you believe you’re highly intuitive and constantly feel like you need some alone time to recharge, then you might be an empath.
Here are 10 signs you’re an empath:
1- Nature is your medicine. You feel connected to Mother Earth and heal incredibly well when you’re around nature.
2- You carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. You feel a huge responsibility for saving our planet because you see the bigger picture. You’re highly attuned to the emotional consequences from the energies existing on our planet at this moment.
3- You pick up on people’s lies. There’s something in you that can read someone and automatically know that person is lying. Your challenge here is to not take any of this personal. Simply observe and try to grow from this situation.
4- You get overly tired easily. This may happen when you’re around a specific person, or around groups of people. (Concerts, shopping malls, amusement parks, etc.)
5- You dislike making other people uncomfortable, so you tend to hold back. Sometimes, you avoid telling a friend something so you don’t hurt her feelings.
6- You get very emotional with movies, tv shows, or theatrical performances.
7- You’ve picked up other people’s sickness & physical pains. For instance, your knee starts to hurt after a friend tells you about a pain he’s been having on his left knee lately. Or, you’ve ended up with the same cold or allergy as someone around you.
8- Anything with a feeling of intensity & chaos can disrupt your peace. You are sensitive to noises & bright lights. You prefer to stay away form city living or crowded spaces.
9- You relate to a pain that’s not your own. You feel others pains so deeply, that it hurts you as much as it hurts them. You always want to take care of people, making sure they’re happy along the way.
10- You sense the vibe in the room. As soon as you walk in, even moments before you arrive, you get a random feeling that makes you feel good or bad about that place. Also, you prefer to take your own car to places so that you can leave as soon as you want.
Those are some signs that can help you understand if you or your child is an empath.
I would love to find out if you relate to this! :-)
