Have you been told all of your life that you’re too sensitive? Do you feel frustrated because if you knew how to be less sensitive, you surely would be?! … it’s possible you may be an Empath.
So… before I move on with the blog theme of Self-Care and the Chakras, I want to talk about Empaths – especially the kinds of empaths who feel other people’s feelings, thoughts, and/or physical sensations in their own body, namely:
Clairsentience – “clear feeling,” sometimes a “gut knowing,” and this can include feeling other people’s physical sensations in your body.
Claircognizance – “clear knowing,” which can include what other people are thinking. Just knowing and often not knowing how or why you know.
Clairempathy – “clear emotional understanding,” which can include the overall feeling tone people in a room, a business, a person, or a situation.
(I learned of clairempathy and some types of empathic abilities not listed at this free webinar.

I’m not advertising, but just wanted to share a great resource, and give credit where it is due).
Being an empath is a double-edged sword, meaning there are positives and negatives, depending on your perspective. You may feel overwhelmed by other people and life-in-general at times, and may have to work really hard not to feel bombarded by other people’s thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations (including pain). Being around groups of people can magnify those effects. BUT here’s the good news! You can tune-into positive and uplifting feelings easily also: like joy, peace, subtle energy, spiritual realms, and the world (and multiverse) beyond you. This, like any skill, just takes practice.
Feeling overwhelmed by other people’s feelings, thoughts, or sensations may feel like a curse.
BUT the positive flip side is: empaths can tap into positive emotions, sensations, and information easily too!
