9 Tips to Stop Absorbing Other People’s Illnesses – Therapy Today

9 Tips to Stop Absorbing Other People’s Illnesses – Therapy Today | Empaths | Scoop.it
As a psychiatrist I’ve had many patients come to me with panic disorders, chronic depression, fatigue, pain, or mysterious ailments that respond only partially to medications or psychotherapy.

 

Some were nearly housebound or ill for years. They’d all say, “I dread being in crowds. Other people’s anger, stress, and pain drain me, and I need a lot of alone time to refuel my energy.”

When I took a close history of all these patients I found that they were what I call “physical empaths:” people whose bodies are so porous they absorb the symptoms of others. I relate because I am one.'

The Toxic Attraction Between an Empath & a Narcissist.

The Toxic Attraction Between an Empath & a Narcissist. | Empaths | Scoop.it
I am an empath. I discovered I was an empath after I got involved in a very deep and highly destructive relationship with a narcissist.

I am writing this article from the perspective of an empath, however, would love to read the view from the opposite side if there are any narcissists that would like to offer their perception on this.

Through writing about the empath personality type I have connected with many other people who class themselves as an empath and time and again I have heard people tell me how they have also attracted relationships with narcissists. There is a link. So, I decided to explore it further.

6 Benefits Of Being A Highly Sensitive Person: 2. We're Empathetic

6 Benefits Of Being A Highly Sensitive Person: 2. We're Empathetic | Empaths | Scoop.it


In a recent study, a group of HSPs and non-HSPs were each shown photos of both strangers and loved ones with facial expressions exhibiting either happiness or sadness.


For HSP subjects, it didn't matter whether the photo displayed a positive or negative emotion — HSPs displayed higher levels of activation in the areas of the brain associated with empathy.

Of course, HSPs aren't the only people who experience empathy, and non-HSPs are equally capable of being amazing friends, partners, and parents — but our high levels of empathy are a special quality we can bring to our relationships.

Dear Fellow Empath/Sensitive....


Are you an empath?

If you've ever had the experience of easily feeling other people's emotional states, and are able to feel subtle spiritual or emotional energy, then the chances are that you are an Empath, or Highly Sensitive Person.  


If you're an empath or sensitive person, you will generally have the following traits:

  • You are a good listener, often a magnet for other people's stories.
  • You feel emotions deeply and cry easily, often for no reason.
  • You have good intuition, especially when it comes to other people. You can 'just know' what someone might be experiencing.
  • You may often become over-stimulated in public places like malls.

Wellbeing: Running on empathy - | Empaths | Scoop.it
They are known as 'emotional empaths' and they are slowly gaining a place on the bookshop shelf thanks to Judith Orloff, the author of the New York Times bestseller Emotional Freedom.


"Empaths are highly sensitive, finely tuned instruments when it comes to emotions", she writes. "They feel everything, sometimes to an extreme, and are less apt to intellectualise feelings. Intuition is the filter through which they experience the world".


According to Orloff, empaths are the type of people you want on your side. "They are naturally giving, spiritually attuned and good listeners. If you want heart, empaths have got it. Through thick and thin, they're there for you, world-class nurturers".

Ascend Academy: Way of the Empath

Ascend Academy: Way of the Empath | Empaths | Scoop.it
We truly are one being, and as we all rise in consciousness, our collective mental state becomes increasingly reflective.  This is so we can further understand and integrate other aspects of our collective self, provoking more harmony and resonance in the whole.  As a result, every individual is beginning to gain more empathic tendencies on a subtle level, becoming sensitive to the vibrations we all constantly emit.

With full awareness of this phenomenon, Empaths compassionately and consciously direct their vibrations through visualization and breath work to positively affect the mental and emotional atmosphere.

New Study Links Social Anxiety To Being An Empath

New Study Links Social Anxiety To Being An Empath | Empaths | Scoop.it

Written by Amateo Ra|


Could social anxiety’s hidden link to empathy give us a greater understanding into the lives of those affected?..


Results support the hypothesis that high socially anxious individuals may demonstrate a unique social-cognitive abilities profile with elevated cognitive empathy tendencies and high accuracy in affective mental state attributions.


This helps shed major light on the subject, finding a hidden link between social anxiety and being an Empath. They used specific testing to measure levels of empathy within specific individuals, and found that those same individuals demonstrated high levels of social anxiety-like behavior.

What Happens When You Stop Listening To People Who Say You're Not 'Enough'

What Happens When You Stop Listening To People Who Say You're Not 'Enough' | Empaths | Scoop.it
When dating, we're often made to feel like we're not enough. We need to determine our self-worth on our own instead of leaving it in the hands of others.

 

I am an empath. An empath is someone who is affected by other people’s energies, and have a natural ability to feel and perceive others. For those who identify as empaths, we often are made to feel that our emotions are too much.

 

We walk around weighted with the feeling that being so passionate and feeling everything deeply is somehow a flaw. It would occur to no one (least of all to us) that our heightened emotions were a part of our very nature and not a flair for drama.

What Is an Empath?

What Is an Empath? | Empaths | Scoop.it
Empathy is the ability to read and understand people and be in-tune with or resonate with others, voluntarily or involuntarily of one's empath capacity.

Empaths have the ability to scan another's psyche for thoughts and feelings or for past, present, and future life occurrences. Many empaths are unaware of how this actually works, and have long accepted that they were sensitive to others.

Know Thyself: An empath's survival guide in 5 steps | Empaths | Scoop.it
You know you’re an empath when, like Obi-Wan Kenobi, you feel great disturbances in The Force.

But you also sense tiny trembles. You detect an atmospheric shift when one person’s energy enters, or contaminates, a room.  Another person’s mood slams you when you lay a single fingertip on their skin.  If anyone is in pain, you feel it, physically.

You’re the glue holding families together, the bandage for the group’s faulty communication.

Empath Traits: Signs Of A Highly Sensitive Person

Empath Traits: Signs Of A Highly Sensitive Person | Empaths | Scoop.it

Have you ever walked in a room and had a wave of negative energy wash over you? Have you had a conversation with a stranger and could tell, without them saying a word about it, that they were deeply troubled or sad Do you ever feel so profoundly moved by something beautiful that you start to cry?


If any of these ring true for you, you might be an empath — a highly sensitive person who has a more heightened awareness to subtle stimuli.



Here are 22 empath traits that might suggest you are a highly sensitive person:

1. People point it out

You’ve been told all your life you are too sensitive, overly emotional, or wear your heart on your sleeve. People tell you that you pick up on cues or feelings they don’t even notice.

2. You feel other’s feelings

You’ve noticed how sensitive you are to the emotions of others. Even before they tell you how they are feeling, you already know. You can enter a room and have a sense of the general mood of the environment.

6 Things Everyone Gets Wrong About Highly Empathetic People

6 Things Everyone Gets Wrong About Highly Empathetic People | Empaths | Scoop.it
The truth is that being empathetic is one of the most worthwhile traits a person can have. To not only be able to acknowledge one another's wellbeing, but to actually feel what someone else is experiencing, and to truly connect at that core level, is unprecedentedly powerful.


It's something we all need to develop a bit more, especially on a mass scale. But, like most things in the world, it's stigmatized to an unfair degree (if not disregarded completely).


Here are all the things people tend to get wrong about empaths, and the truth that may make you realize you are one (but perhaps in denial):

Highly Empathetic People Usually Come From Difficult, If Not Abusive, Pasts

10 Signs That You Are An Empath - Introvert Spring

10 Signs That You Are An Empath - Introvert Spring | Empaths | Scoop.it
If you are an introvert who is highly sensitive, you might also be an empath.


Empaths are highly sensitive individuals who deeply feel the emotions of those around them.


Both introverts and empaths are likely to feel overwhelmed by crowds and loud noises.


They are also prone to feeling drained and completely exhausted to the point of fatigue. For introverts, feeling drained is usually due to overstimulation.. For empaths, it is related to the stress of constantly feeling other people’s emotions.
