I recently finished reading The Empath’s Survival Guide by Judith Orloff, MD, and I found it to be amazingly helpful in many areas of my life. A lot has changed in my life since the day I first began searching “reading people” on the Internet after hearing a compelling story from a friend who shared his experience with his gift and realizing that I, myself also had that ability.… Read the rest
One of the key aspects of being an empath is all the stories people want to tell you. As an empath and often as an introvert empath, you don’t really want to “hear” their stories.

Several empath and sensitive readers have shared on the blog that they struggle with knowing when they’re experiencing their own feelings versus feelings they have “picked up” from someone else.

“An Earth Angel is a soul with non-Earthly origins. Although all souls originate from the same Divine source, our environment and personal history often shape our personalities and physical characteristics.

“The main difference between an empath and clairsentient is that an empath generally only feels the emotions and energy of the people and the environment around them, whereby a clairsentient will have a good sense of what someone is thinking; they will feel if someone is in danger or pain, they may know if someone is dying or has died, they may sense when someone is watching them and they will also have a strong sense of what is going on in the environment even if they are far from the area,” explains Alex Myles, author of An Empath
The basic list of the “Traits of an Empath” that has been circulating the internet for a few years now is fairly straightforward, however, you will see crossover with other areas such as Lightworkers, Indigos, HSPs (Highly Sensitive People or Highly Sensitive Persons), Psychics, Mediums and even aspects that are levels of ascension.… Read the rest
