Click the pic for a free reading at PsychicAccess.comDo you wonder if you are an empath? Many people are empathic and are not aware that they are. An empath is someone with the strong ability to feel the thoughts, emotions, feelings and energy of others. It is a person with the ability to sense, connect and understand on a soulful level with the spirit of another individual on Earth. Below are some of the traits you may have if you are an empath.

You may have a hard time separating between your own feelings and the feelings of others, at times. This is because empaths absorb other people’s emotions and energy subconsciously. Because most untrained empaths do not realize when they do this, it is often very difficult for them to distinguish between their own feelings and the feelings of others, causing them to feel sad at times where there is no apparent reason for it.

The Empath is often said to have such a great degree of empathy that they can literally feel what others feel, and thus intuitively know many of the yearnings, sensitivities, tastes and even thought patterns of the people they’re around ~ Aletheia Luna

I was aware of huge mood swings and I did not realize at first that this was coming from other people or surroundings. I thought these emotions were mine and could not understand what was going on. As a teenager, I felt like I was going crazy. I was especially bothered in crowds or at parties. It would often take two days to recover from going out on Friday night.

An empath is very easily affected by other people’s feelings and emotions, so their energy levels are highly susceptible to crashing. It also makes their moods change according to the influences that are around them. This makes alone time crucial in order to try to restore a balance.

As an empath you often appear to be introverted, quiet and shy. You require frequent alone time in order to recharge and prevent emotional information overload. Being very naturally intuitive and sensing other people’s emotions, empaths need alone time to cope. I have to have alone time every day, just to process the day’s events.

An empath tend to attract people in need of help. If you are an empath there is something about you that gets everyone to ask you for help, almost as if they can tell that you are a warm, kind-hearted person without even knowing you. People want to tell you their secrets.

I would ride a bus, and the stranger next to me would start confessing their sins to me. I wondered why this kept happening to me, noticing it did not happen to my friends when they were out and about. If this happens to you, consider it another sign.

Sometimes you have a tendency of attracting needy or manipulative people wanting to take advantage of you.  Most empaths feel compelled to help others. Empaths have a hard time saying no and genuinely wish the best for other people, causing them to always be there, offering others a helping hand wherever necessary.

When I am at a store, other customers are always asking me where things are, as if I work there! Then they will want me to help them make a decision on what to buy. It never occurs to me to just shrug and say that I don’t know.

Have you noticed that you have the ability to read people’s feelings despite their emotions not being very visible to others? Have you ever walked into a room and felt everyone’s emotions coming at you like a wave? Empaths feel what other people are going through deeply, without them even opening their mouths. Thus, having panic attacks and free-floating anxiety are common among empaths – they experience the highs and lows of other people as if they were their own.

If you’re an empath, know how important it is to take care of yourself first in order to be able to help others. Sometimes there is only so much you can do for others; you might even be doing everyone a disservice by stepping over boundaries ~ Catherine Chea

I can walk into a room and feel the tension after a fight. I have also had panic attacks while driving and noticed they always started at a particular location. After doing some research, I discovered that there had been a horrible accident in that exact location years before I moved there, and many people died. Once I began shielding myself, I didn’t have panic attacks while driving through that location again.

Do you have an easy time connecting with other people on a deeper level? Empaths feel other people’s problems, making them great therapists and counselors. However, empaths often feel misunderstood by others. Empaths will sometimes find it hard to grasp the fact that not everyone is as empathetic as they are. After all, they have been living their entire lives like this and know of nothing else. This may cause them to shy away from other people or to be ashamed of expressing their true self in front of others.

I am a very private person, with just a handful of good friends. Once I met others like me, it was fantastic to make friends with people who understood what I was feeling and experiencing.

As an empath you frequently catch yourself worrying on the behalf of others. You often put others before yourself. Because of this, many empaths become psychologists, therapists, doctors, physiotherapists and healers. In order to have the energy and knowledge necessary to help other people, however, it is essential for the empath to practice putting themselves first, committing to mastering their gift for other people to benefit moving forward.

Empaths often also come off to others as being overly emotional or sensitive. They are being affected by the feelings, energies and emotions of others and it is bound to build up and overload them. They will easily take in emotional input from not just humans, but animals as well. Many empaths have the ability to sense subtle energies and distinguish between good and bad ones.

One of the ways in which this affects them is through their choice of the foods they consume. Because of this, it is common for empaths to be vegetarians or vegans. As a child, I could not eat meat. It was impossible for me to do it. I also preferred to buy items that were new and fresh. Empaths know that if they buy something second hand, they will often have to take on the energy of its previous user, which is why they often refrain from doing so. Instead, they leverage their creativity and make many things themselves, or buy them brand new when creating is not an option. Empaths are usually highly creative.

If you are an empath, you feel at peace in nature and love beautiful scenery. You will probably dislike crowds. This is because empaths often feel as if they lose their own true authentic self when they spend time in a crowd. They usually tend to be introverted. Rarely do they want to be the center of attention, preferring to spend time observing people and objects from a distance. Empaths are usually quite observant and pay attention to details. When talking with people, they feel their energy deeply and vividly, not just hear their words.
