How To Deal With High Empathy? Living With High Sensitivity

How To Deal With High Empathy? Living With High Sensitivity | Empaths | Scoop.it
Do you sometimes feel sad without really knowing why? Find out whether you are highly empathic and learn how to avoid absorbing the negativity of others.

 MY JOURNEY IN FINDING OUT
 

It wasn’t until recently, when I read an article about ‘30 traits of an empath‘ that I discovered I was not alone in feeling the way I felt at times but that there is a category of humans defined as empaths (my spell check doesn’t even recognize this word).


I am not a fan of labels but learning about some traits and finding out what it meant and feels like to be an empath, has been calming, reassuring and healing. The danger with not being aware of the fact that you are an empath, is to end up with the belief that negative feelings absorbed from others are your own ones.

Empath Self-Assessment: 8 Common Traits of Empathic People with Pictures | Empaths | Scoop.it

Do you frequently experience the intense emotions of other, particularly in public settings? Do you find that at times these feelings are intrusive?


Do you struggle with trying to push these emotions away, causing you to become drained and depleted?


Are you able to feel the physical distress of other living creatures, like aches and pains? When a major global event happens that involves significant loss of life, are you able to sense the enormity of the tragedy before it hits the news?

Are you an Empath?

Are you an Empath? | Empaths | Scoop.it

Unfolding the Higher Paradigm. 

Imagine being able to feel and sense everything, whether positive or negative around you, 24/7.


An Empath can’t turn off empathy (unlike someone who is perhaps ‘empathising’). It is possibly one of the most challenging of psychic gifts to master.


I am an Empath who has spent nearly
two decades, since awakening,
mastering my empathic nature


 It is an ongoing process. I am still not perfect and not sure that I ever will be whilst incarnated here. I am however content, despite the challenges of integration, as I see it as an incredible gift to humanity…

What is Spiritual Empathy and how to Live with it?

What is Spiritual Empathy and how to Live with it? | Empaths | Scoop.it

Many empathic people use protection exercises and have a lot of different ways to do this, if this works for you and you are comfortable doing so then by all means carry on doing this.


But there is an important point to make regarding protection exercises such as the white bubble (surrounding yourself in a white bubble), and all other ones, that if you continually use protection exercises how are you going to feel any energies (good or bad) from others, your environment, and the world, and how are others going to feel your energy?


How do you stop empathy feelings?

I'm an Empath, Are You? - Sacred Healing | Empaths | Scoop.it

Am I an empath? This is a questions that many people ask themselves. 


I’m an Empath but I didn’t always know that I was. I just knew that I felt emotions on a very deep level and I knew things about people that they hadn’t told me. When I finally found some research on this topic I realized that I was an empath (this was also confirmed to me by a psychic healer).


Sometimes people call us “highly sensitive people”, but I prefer the word empath. If you are very sensitive you may have asked yourself “Am I an empath?“.

Empathy and Weight Gain

Empathy and Weight Gain | Empaths | Scoop.it

I will be exploring the topic of weight gain in much more detail in my “Empowering Empathic Abilities” online class, but I wanted to send this out for any of you empaths out there who struggle with your weight and feel guilty because of it. Don’t.


Carrying extra weight does not make you any less spiritual or less valuable than anyone else on the planet. Learn to love and accept yourself. Thank your body for how it protects and takes care of you. I promise it will do wonders in your overall health and sense of well-being!

 Learning to self-sooth is one of the most

important healing modalities

an empath can learn.

Empaths

Empaths | Empaths | Scoop.it

An empath is someone who feels the emotions of others, in addition to their own. It sounds fictitious and it certainly began that way. Empath was a Marvel Comics character in the 1980s – a mutant who could sense and manipulate others’ emotions. However, people are increasingly identifying as empaths.


Feeling empathy is an integral part of human nature, although it is not ubiquitous. We have a name for people without empathy – psychopaths or sociopaths – of which approximately 1% of the population is composed. If we can conceive of a lack of empathy, why is the idea of someone who feels extreme empathy rejected? I suppose it is a reflection of society’s focus on the negative.


Below is a list of the most

common traits of an

empath.

Empathic Illnesses: Do You Absorb Other People’s Symptoms?

Empathic illnesses are those in which you manifest symptoms that are not your own. Many patients have come to me labeled “agoraphobic” with panic disorders, chronic depression, fatigue, pain, or mysterious ailments that respond only partially to medications or psychotherapy. 


To determine if you are a physical

empath take the following quiz.

THE EMPATHIC LISTENER

THE EMPATHIC LISTENER | Empaths | Scoop.it

Is there healing value in listening to the heartache and suffering of others? This requires the listener to be very present in that moment and to block out everything and totally engage in this process.


To listen properly, there should be no distractions. You must pay close attention to what is being said.  Advise may or may not be what the person is desiring.  Sometimes they are only wanting someone to listen intently.


Women seem more likely to open up about their problems than men do.  Men sometimes regard emotional pain as a sign of weakness or not being “man enough” to suffer in silence.


The empathic listener is a compassionate,

caring and powerfully healing friend. 


This listener may find themselves

totally drained emotionally but

spiritually elevated by participating.

3 Quick Ways to Get Control of Overactive Empathy

3 Quick Ways to Get Control of Overactive Empathy | Empaths | Scoop.it

You know when you get a glimpse into someone else’s emotional experience or their pain?  You can really feel it for a moment and sometimes it might bring you to tears or motivate you to help someone.  That’s empathy.


Overactive empathy, on the other hand, is when you have that experience of opening up to someone else’s emotions and experience, but then instead of coming back to yourself afterwards and being centered in your own needs and feelings, you remain ‘out there’ – absorbed in everyone else’s ‘stuff’.  In social situations, you can sense what everyone else is feeling and thinking. 


Even walking past people in the street, you can feel and sense what is going on with them.  Physical empaths can even pick up physical pains and aches that aren’t theirs.


===================

Overactive empathy can lead to
people-pleasing, self-sacrifice
and self neglect

What is an Empath and Are You One?

What is an Empath and Are You One? | Empaths | Scoop.it

by Randi Fine 


Have you ever wondered why people who are strangers or people you hardly know open up to you and share their most trusted thoughts?


Do you have an instant connection with animals? Are you unable to watch violence, cruelty, or tragedy on television or in the movies because your soul just can’t bear it? Do you have an instant knowing about the character of the people you meet upon first meeting them? Are you highly spiritual and find the physical world and everything in it heavy?


Are you often tired and have physical ailments that cannot be medically explained? If you answered, “yes” to any of these questions you may be an “empath.


Empaths are people who are highly sensitive to the energy and the emotions of the people, animals, and sometimes even the spiritual imprints that exist around them.

Recently, a friend of mine who is a psychologist shared with me during a conversation about career counseling that she has the ability to sense the emotions of others. At first, I thought she was talking about the construct of empathy, an ability most helping professionals seem to (or at least should) possess. As our conversation continued however, it became clear to me that she was talking about something completely different.


Specifically, she identified herself as an empath.

How to Protect Yourself as an Empath

How to Protect Yourself as an Empath | Empaths | Scoop.it

In spirit science perspective, the reason that you are an empath is because you are tuned into the universal consciousness more than other people.


You are so dialed in to the oneness factor that connects us all that you are feeling someone else’s pain which really means you are projecting and reflecting your own experiences into the situation which makes you empathic to begin with.


You are the universe itself experiencing itself through a fractalized visual mass.

I Feel Your Pain: An Empath's Guide to Staying Balanced - Bo Forbes Yoga

I Feel Your Pain: An Empath's Guide to Staying Balanced - Bo Forbes Yoga | Empaths | Scoop.it

Do you often wonder which emotions are yours, and which belong to someone else? When people you care about are hurting, do you feel their pain so deeply that it’s hard to separate—even after they’re out of crisis mode?


In relationships, do you donate so much of your own natural resources that you suffer from a chronic energy shortage? And with those you’re close to, is it hard to figure out what your own needs are—or even what you want for dinner? If the answer is yes, it’s highly likely that you’re an empath.

and why is it fraught with these basic
life challenges?

How to Love an Empath.

How to Love an Empath. | Empaths | Scoop.it
We feel more than we think. This is a blessing and a curse. It allows us to understand people and see things others don’t. However, when we remove the shield we become vulnerable and in this vulnerability we can be hurt.

I’ve battled my bleeding heart for my entire life. I don’t want to anymore. I love that I can touch my emotions, delve into them, experience them and move forward. I can sense other people’s emotions too, as if they were my own.


Slowly, I am learning how to keep myself

protected while I remain exposed and empathetic, without being untrusting and guarded.

I’m An Empath: Get Me Out Of Here | Fe-line | Empaths | Scoop.it

In crowded or stressful places, with a lot of noise, an empath can find themselves feeling confused and anxious due to the sheer barrage of angry and negative “white noise” – a storm of jumbled and distressing non verbal emotional information which they will unconsciously try and process.


In the worst case scenario, empaths can become angst-absorbing sponges, totally overwhelmed by other people’s feelings. And they won’t know why.


It can get exhausting.

Yoganic Flow – When an Empath is in balance, the power is endless!! | Empaths | Scoop.it

These are just a few common experiences of Empaths. I attended a class about how to thrive as an Empath at the Florida School of Holistic Living a few weeks ago


. At the beginning of the class I didn’t know what an Empath was. As we went through the content, things started to click for me. Memories of crying all the time as a child/adult. Feeling responsible for the feelings of those around me. Having strong physical reactions to people, situations or places.


Becoming numb when I experienced emotional/sensory overload. Writing countless blogs about my emotions and how to control/cope with them…so this new realization of what is called an empath is so refreshing to know. NOTHING IS WRONG WITH ME?!! I always knew it but to have a name for it….. brought me a sigh of relief.


So, now that I knowI am an Empath.

What’s next?!

- Why am I not able to switch off all this chaos?

Coping Tips for Empaths

Coping Tips for Empaths | Empaths | Scoop.it

Being an empath can be physically and emotionally draining. Many people are unaware that they’re an empath and do not know how to cope with this ability.


Firstly, you should start to develop your “Shield Body”, this is your protection bubble around your physical body (everyone and everything is energy and what you think you create).


There is a layer of your aura that is devoted to your interface with your environment. Its shape and condition indicate your relationship to your world. People who are empaths often have a “thin skin” in relation to their shield body. When it has holes in it, we are more easily influenced by our environment.


Visualize a shield of energy around

your physical body. See it as being

radiant and complete.

30 Recognizable Signs of an Empath - Lez Get Real

30 Recognizable Signs of an Empath - Lez Get Real | Empaths | Scoop.it

I was born, raised and trained as an empath. When I tell people this they usually react the same way “Prove it.” I hate that.


I usually want to respond with “Well then, I can tell you are a skeptical person that believes in nothing unless shown Scientific “proof”. What ever happened to trusting your “gut feeling“?


For me, that gut feeling is called Empathy and its a pain in the ass. I hate having to educate people on something they already believe is not true or real.Its about the same as me turning to you and saying “Wind isn’t real unless you can show it to me.”

Empathy | What is an empath?

Posts about Empathy written by gelafelipe

What is an empath?


Being an empath is when you are affected by other people’s energies, and have an innate ability to intuitively feel and perceive others.  Your life is unconsciously influenced by others’ desires, wishes, thoughts, and moods.  Being an empath is much more than being highly sensitive and it’s not just limited to emotions. 


Empaths can perceive physical sensitivities and spiritual urges, as well as just knowing the motivations and intentions of other people.  You either are an empath or you aren’t.  It’s not a trait that is learned.
