An Empath is someone who can feel other peoples feelings, they often mistaken as psychic because they just know stuff, without being told. It’s a knowing that goes way beyond intuition or gut feelings, even though that is how many would describe the knowing.An Empath can see a persons likes and hates, they can feel their sadness or happiness. When an Empath walks into a room full of people they will be overwhelmed with emotions from the other people. Empaths will often take on other people’s emotions especially loved ones, they can feel their pain and hurt or sadness, sometimes they will feel this even when they are not in the same place as the other person they will sense something is wrong.An Empath can know instantly if someone is lying and being dishonest, or if someone means them harm, they instinctively know if someone is a good or bad person. Empaths will sometimes become very sad or depressed without knowing why, what they don’t know is they are absorbing negativity and others emotions around them. Empaths can even feel someone else’s physical pain if they are hurt or unwell.Empaths love to be in happy places because just as much as they can feel negative emotions they can also feel happy ones too, they love fun fairs, children, listening to people’s happy news.Empaths can have a high dependency on alcohol or drug use because it stops the emotions of others seeping through and they can feel their own emotions more when high or drunk, they will also love loud music to drown out thoughts. Escapism is a big must for most Empaths they can tire of taking on everyone else’s problems and need an escape whether it be through movies, video games, drinking, drugs, music or even just throwing yourself into work or family life. When Empaths do not have a release they will find themselves spending almost every moment doing things for others. But you must be careful to not get depending on anything unhealthy such as alcohol or drugs because this will make the problem even worse. Some Empaths can smell an emotion or illness, they will be able to smell sadness, or hurt and often can smell disease. It can be very hard to switch off if you’re an Empath, you can feel very drained all the time and find it very hard to sleep. People are drawn to an Empath as a metal object is to a magnet! because of their warmth and there openness, Empaths are very honest, maybe sometimes too honest, they are very open people and people find this a comfort, people also feel comfortable because an Empath knows just what to say as they know how the other person is feeling. Being an Empath can be both a blessing and a curse, it can be useful to you in certain situations, but at the same time it is very hard to switch off and you get a constant rollercoaster of thoughts and emotions that are sometimes not even your own. If you are an Empath.There are lots of people like you who find it very hard to turn off emotionally because of all the other emotions going on around you.Firstly you need to take the bull by the horns, you know what it is, so you need to make a big step in saying no more, and learn to live with it because you cannot get rid of it but you can not go on ignoring it.Write a day to day diary of when the feelings start most and when you feel most comfortable. Ask yourself what is the emotion you are feeling when you get very drained or you can’t sleep, is it sadness, is it grief, is it fear? You need to start singling out emotions and when or why you are feeling them.Try to Centre yourself, this could be done through meditation or by your own technique in that the goal is to learn to turn off your empathy in the moment and to train yourself to do this by any means, something that feels right to you.You have got to make a conscious choice to work hard every day on controlling it as it can make you very depressed and drain you of every ounce of energy. It is important you learn to sheild yourself from negativity and emotions.Do a smudge using sage of your home often and keep protective crystals with you such as Onyz, Lapis lazuli and Tigers Eye.Try taking St Johns Wart, this will help take the edge off, but also be thankful that you are an Empath, this when controlled can be a great asset to you.

Empaths will sometimes become very sad or depressed without knowing why, what they don’t know is they are absorbing negativity and others emotions around them. Empaths can even feel someone else’s physical pain if they are hurt or unwell.

Empaths love to be in happy places because just as much as they can feel negative emotions they can also feel happy ones too, they love fun fairs, children, listening to people’s happy news.

Empaths can have a high dependency on alcohol or drug use because it stops the emotions of others seeping through and they can feel their own emotions more when high or drunk, they will also love loud music to drown out thoughts.

But you must be careful to not get depending on anything unhealthy such as alcohol or drugs because this will make the problem even worse. 

Some Empaths can smell an emotion or illness, they will be able to smell sadness, or hurt and often can smell disease. 

It can be very hard to switch off if you’re an Empath, you can feel very drained all the time and find it very hard to sleep. 

People are drawn to an Empath as a metal object is to a magnet! because of their warmth and there openness, Empaths are very honest, maybe sometimes too honest, they are very open people and people find this a comfort, people also feel comfortable because an Empath knows just what to say as they know how the other person is feeling. 

Being an Empath can be both a blessing and a curse, it can be useful to you in certain situations, but at the same time it is very hard to switch off and you get a constant rollercoaster of thoughts and emotions that are sometimes not even your own. 

If you are an Empath.

There are lots of people like you who find it very hard to turn off emotionally because of all the other emotions going on around you.
Firstly you need to take the bull by the horns, you know what it is, so you need to make a big step in saying no more, and learn to live with it because you cannot get rid of it but you can not go on ignoring it.

Write a day to day diary of when the feelings start most and when you feel most comfortable. Ask yourself what is the emotion you are feeling when you get very drained or you can’t sleep, is it sadness, is it grief, is it fear? You need to start singling out emotions and when or why you are feeling them.

Try to Centre yourself, this could be done through meditation or by your own technique in that the goal is to learn to turn off your empathy in the moment and to train yourself to do this by any means, something that feels right to you.

You have got to make a conscious choice to work hard every day on controlling it as it can make you very depressed and drain you of every ounce of energy. It is important you learn to sheild yourself from negativity and emotions.

Do a smudge using sage of your home often and keep protective crystals with you such as Onyz, Lapis lazuli and Tigers Eye.

Try taking St Johns Wart, this will help take the edge off, but also be thankful that you are an Empath, this when controlled can be a great asset to you.

"30 traits of an Empath:
1. Knowing: Empaths just know stuff, without being told. It’s a knowing that goes way beyond intuition or gut feelings, even though that is how many would describe the knowing. The more attuned they are the stronger this gift becomes.
2. Being in public places can be overwhelming: Places like shopping malls, supermarkets or stadiums where there are lots of people around can fill the empath with turbulently vexed emotions that are coming from others.
3. Feeling others emotions and taking them on as your own: This is a huge one for empaths. To some they will feel emotions off those near by and with others they will feel emotions from those a vast distance away, or both. The more adept empath will know if someone is having bad thoughts about them, even from great distance.
4. Watching violence, cruelty or tragedy on the TV is unbearable: The more attuned an empath becomes the worse it is and may make it so they eventually have to stop watching TV and reading newspapers altogether.
5. You know when someone is not being honest: If a friend or a loved one is telling you lies you know it (although many empaths try not to focus on this because knowing a loved one is lying can be painful). Or if someone is saying one thing but feeling/thinking another, you know.
6. Picking up physical symptoms off another: An empath will almost always develop the ailments off another (colds, eye infections, body aches and pains) especially those they’re closest to, somewhat like sympathy pains.
7. Digestive disorders and lower back problems: The solar plexus chakra is based in the centre of the abdomen and it’s known as the seat of emotions. This is where empaths feel the incoming emotion of another, which can weaken the area and eventually lead to anything from stomach ulcers to IBS (too many other conditions to list here). Lower back problems can develop from being ungrounded (amongst other things) and one, who has no knowledge of them being an empath, will almost always be ungrounded.
8. Always looking out for the underdog: Anyone whose suffering, in emotional pain or being bullied draws an empath’s attention and compassion.
9. Others will want to offload their problems on you, even strangers: An empath can become a dumping ground for everyone else’s issues and problems, which, if they’re not careful can end up as their own.
10. Constant fatigue: Empaths often get drained of energy, either from energy vampires or just taking on too much from others, which even sleep will not cure. Many get diagnosed with ME.
11. Addictive personality: Alcohol, drugs, sex, are to name but a few addictions that empaths turn to, to block out the emotions of others. It is a form of self protection in order to hide from someone or something.
12. Drawn to healing, holistic therapies and all things metaphysical: Although many empaths would love to heal others they can end up turning away from being healers (even though they have a natural ability for it), after they’ve studied and qualified, because they take on too much from the one they are trying to heal. Especially if they are unaware of their empathy. Anything of a supernatural nature is of interest to empaths and they don’t surprise or get shocked easily. Even at the revelation of what many others would consider unthinkable, for example, empaths would have known the world was round when others believed it was flat.
13. Creative: From singing, dancing, acting, drawing or writing an empath will have a strong creative streak and a vivid imagination.
14. Love of nature and animals: Being outdoors in nature is a must for empaths and pets are an essential part of their life.
15. Need for solitude: An empath will go stir-crazy if they don’t get quiet time. This is even obvious in empathic children.
16. Gets bored or distracted easily if not stimulated: Work, school and home life has to be kept interesting for an empath or they switch off from it and end up daydreaming or doodling.
17. Finds it impossible to do things they don’t enjoy: As above. Feels like they are living a lie by doing so. To force an empath to do something they dislike through guilt or labelling them as idle will only serve in making them unhappy. It’s for this reason many empaths get labelled as being lazy.
18. Strives for the truth: This becomes more prevalent when an empath discovers his/her gifts and birthright. Anything untruthful feels plain wrong.
19. Always looking for the answers and knowledge: To have unanswered questions can be frustrating for an empath and they will endeavour to find an explanation. If they have a knowing about something they will look for confirmation. The downside to this is an information overload.
20. Likes adventure, freedom and travel: Empaths are free spirits.
21. Abhors clutter: It makes an empath feel weighed down and blocks the flow of energy.
22. Loves to daydream: An empath can stare into space for hours, in a world of their own and blissfully happy.
23. Finds routine, rules or control, imprisoning: Anything that takes away their freedom is debilitating to an empath even poisoning.
24. Prone to carry weight without necessarily overeating: The excess weight is a form of protection to stop the negative incoming energies having as much impact.
25. Excellent listener: An empath won’t talk about themselves much unless it’s to someone they really trust. They love to learn and know about others and genuinely care.
26. Intolerance to narcissism: Although kind and often very tolerant of others, empaths do not like to be around overly egotistical people, who put themselves first and refuse to consider another’s feelings or points of view other than their own.
27. The ability to feel the days of the week: An empath will get the ‘Friday Feeling’ if they work Fridays or not. They pick up on how the collective are feeling. The first couple of days of a long, bank holiday weekend (Easter for example) can feel, to them, like the world is smiling, calm and relaxed. Sunday evenings, Mondays and Tuesdays, of a working week, have a very heavy feeling.
28. Will not choose to buy antiques, vintage or second-hand: Anything that’s been pre-owned carries the energy of the previous owner. An empath will even prefer to have a brand new car or house (if they are in the financial situation to do so) with no residual energy.
29. Sense the energy of food: Many empaths don’t like to eat meat or poultry because they can feel the vibrations of the animal (especially if the animal suffered), even if they like the taste.
30. Can appear moody, shy, aloof, disconnected: Depending on how an empath is feeling will depend on what face they show to the world. They can be prone to mood swings and if they’ve taken on too much negative will appear quiet and unsociable, even miserable. An empath detests having to pretend to be happy when they’re sad, this only adds to their load (makes working in the service industry, when it’s service with a smile, very challenging) and can make them feel like scuttling under a stone.
If you can say yes to most or all of the above then you are most definitely an empath.”

Since so many of the readings I’ve been doing seems to indicate some of you guys are empaths and just had no idea what that meant, I’ve decided to collect this list with some of the most common traits, for you to finally understand that you are not alone and your feelings are perfectly “normal” ;) Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions.
Also, you can check the post with Essencial Practices for Empaths, to find out more on how to deal with your gift ;)

And that’s the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.
Khaled Hosseini (via jhbrd)

You know you’re an empath when you constantly have to remind yourself, that most are not able to feel things the way you do. Words, people, and places carry an energy field. And they all can feel just as intense… energy is energy.
