Are You an Empath?
Empath Connection offers resources to learn skilled empathy.
What is an Empath? If you're one of us, you have highly sensitive spiritual, emotional, and energetic perception. You literally feel
other people's energy and emotions in your own body and energy field.
Sometimes it may seem like you are an energy
sponge for other
There is nothing you can do to take your intuitive empath sensitivity away; however you can learn to become
a skilled empath so it doesn't hurt.
It is possible to learn empath coping skills and create boundaries
so that you are not drained of energy. I explore these issues and other tools in my free monthly newsletters and in my book
The Complete Empath Toolkit. I also hold several Empath Academy classes each year and offer retreats at our center in Colorado..

Are you an Empath? Finding Freedom from other's Negative Energy
It happens to empaths every day.
Other people will either give or take our energy from us. It's inevitable as breathing.
Energy exchange happens in every interaction in the world. More often than not, empaths are the ones who become drained.
An important first step in being a skilled empath is to learn to quiet your mind so that you can have awareness of when people infringe
on your energy. There's a famous story that tells of how Jesus knew when someone had tugged on his robe and therefore pulled
some energy from him. As empaths, we also get people tugging at us, asking for our energetic help. We must be like all
the great spiritual masters and become aware of when these dynamics occur. That's what being a skilled empath means. Only then we
can take steps to preserve our energy, primarily through the act of saying no.
Our second primary task is to make our energy fields
(auras) bigger than they have ever been before. We do this through ritual practices that keep the chakras open and allow us
to take in more Light energy. When we have a larger spiritual "mass" (e.g. a larger aura that can hold more Light), then when
other people do take from us, it won't harm us as much. Make it your goal to have a little extra energy "padding." It's
like wearing an energy coat that extends, say, 15 feet all around us, made of pure light.
Creating Light can be done in a variety
of ways. Yoga, martial arts, and mind-body meditation practices are just some of the many techniques that connect body and mind
with the intention of more Light. It is up to you to find a discipline and a ritual practice, something that you
take seriously in order to raise your vibration and create more Light.
