How Do I Know If I’m An Empath?

Empaths are a special breed of people. We are the energetically sensitive bunch with a heart of gold. We are full spectrum receivers who have a strong inner knowing.

Here are some common traits among empaths:

  1. You empathize with people and animals very deeply often feeling their pain.

  2. You may attract narcissistic people who often make you feel bad about who you are.

  3. You care deeply for others often more than you care for yourself.

  4. You are easily drained by negative people.

  5. You feel emotionally overwhelmed most of the time.

  6. You feel drawn to help others.

  7. Even watching television can be emotionally taxing as you may identify deeply with the characters or the actors.

  8. Going out in a crowd can exhaust you for days.

  9. You feel often as though you are being taken advantage of, you treat people as you want to be treated but feel this isn't reciprocated.

  10. You are uncomfortable in this reality and feel often separate from others. You may not like it in this reality and you definitely feel you don't belong here.

  11. You like to spend lots of time alone.

  12. Being in nature can charge you.

  13. The weather can affect your mood.

  14. The ocean gets you deeper than anyone else.

  15. Your intuition is fairly accurate.

If this describes you, you're definitely an Empath and you're in the right place!
