Many people are beginning to realize that they might actually be an empath. It can be both a blessing and a curse.
Once you learn how to protect yourself, you will find it much easier to traverse this world without being energetically destroyed on a regular basis.
1. You Take On Other People’s Energy
You can’t avoid it. This is the essential trait of being an empath. You innately feel other people’s emotions and energy, then you begin to mirror the same emotion. If someone is crying, it can cause the empath to tear up as well.
If someone around you is angry, you can feel this anger burning through your aura. If someone around you is negative or fearful, you begin to sink low with them and you can’t seem to do anything to stop it. Does this sound familiar?
The up side is that once you become aware that this isn’t the norm (non empaths do none of these things), then you are already halfway towards finding a way to deal with your special abilities.
2. High Natural Intuition
Empaths have unique skills that the average person doesn’t seem to have. You feel things psychically. You know what others are feeling just be seeing them. You can chat with someone and know their intentions without hearing it.
You understand how people feel, as if they were an extension of yourself. Your intuition never shuts down.
