Five Ways to Cope as an Empath

«   Blog

Many intuitives and empaths struggle with overwhelm and anxiety, as they try to navigate their lives. How do you protect your energy field if you are an empath?

1. Become aware of your gifts

Just like in medicine, correct diagnosis is the first step to success. Becoming aware of your empathic gifts is the first step to successfully dealing with them and turning them into allies.

Let’s take an example. One of the most common, and challenging, types of empathy is emotional empathy. Those who have this gift process other people’s emotions and feelings as if they were their own.

If you don’t know you are an emotional empath, you may have come to believe that you are a very sensitive person, who feels too much, is easily swayed by conflicting moods, and gets overwhelmed being in the presence of many people. You may have been wondering where do all these moods and feelings originate, but have come to conclude that this is just the way you are. What if someone explained to you that you are en emotional empath? Wouldn’t it be very empowering to understand that most of these emotions are not even your own?

Recently, I published an article on GoStica, where I discussed some of the most common types of psychic empathy. I wrote about the empathic gifts that I have come across the most often in myAkashic Record readings with clients. When I do a reading, I always ask if a client is an empath, and if so, what kind. It may be very validating to find out that what we thought was “wrong” with us, is actually an intuitive gift that can be worked with and developed. Rather than drain our energy, psychic empathy will empower us when we become aware of it. We just need to address it and learn to protect our energy field.
