Why Empaths Fall Victim To Narcissists

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comWhy are narcissists and empaths often drawn to one another? This is a phenomena many of us empaths fall victim to. Which, at first, may seem odd, since empaths and narcissists are polar opposites! But, maybe that is the key? Opposites attract.

But, what’s more profound, is that the narcissist preys upon the empath’s dedication to healing those who are emotionally wounded or scarred. By nature empaths are deeply caring, compassionate people. The empath’s purpose in life is to support healing in others, yet due to their intense sensitivity, empaths often struggle to create healthy boundaries for themselves, giving in to martyrdom, victimhood, co-dependency, and chronic self-sacrifice.

An empath will do anything in their power to help or heal another. And, will not easily give up or walk away. This makes them prime targets for the narcissist.

There are different types of narcissists. But, for this article, I will discuss the most common. And, that is the Amorous Narcissist. They tend to measure their self-worth and grandiosity by how many sexual conquests they have conquered. This type of person is known for using their charm to ensnare others with attention, flattery and gifts. But, they dispose of their target once they become bored or when their needs have been served. The target typically won’t so much as get an explanation, much less a goodbye.

Mirror-Touch Synesthesia (MTS)

click here for a free reading at PsychicAccess.comScience is catching up with the empath, literally. Recently I came across a fascinating book titles Mirror Touch by Dr. Joel Salinas, a Harvard trained researcher and neurologist at Massachusetts General. It explores the phenomenon of Mirror-touch synesthesia (MTS) – a rare neurological trait that causes someone to feel the emotional and physical experiences of other people.

The word synesthesia means joined perception, or to blend the five senses. Science recognizes over 80 types of synesthesia.

Because of Dr. Salinas and other brave professionals, science is sitting up and taking notice and actually exploring the brain and how it functions in individuals with these traits. Dr. Salinas uses his ability of feeling the emotional and physical pain of his patients to treat their symptoms, as if they were his own. The experience for him and others like him is challenging and draining.

How Empathy Can Help You Love Your Career

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comCareer-oriented empaths, who find value in succeeding in their chosen field, sometimes hit the wall at work. You wake up one day and realize, your performance record has declined, you haven’t had an amazing review in years, you have to triple check your work and even worse, you are always passed over for promotions. No wonder you feel resentful, and like you can’t keep up at work. And no matter what your career choice, it usually looks something like this.

You finish college, which was most likely easier for you. You get into the company of your choice, and you start excelling. Almost immediately moving through the ranks with ease. You recognize that life, although it has its bumps, seems to unfold fairly easy for you. And you have a feeling, more than a feeling, a knowing, that it is connected to your sixth sense, your gut feeling, those little flurries of feelings that has always guided you through life. You may not recognize it as your empathy yet, but you know that your gut instinct has always led you in the right direction, and when you are in tune with it, things do tend to happen.

Chiron Retrograde Can Heal The Empath

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThere is much talk lately regarding astrological retrogrades and the seven planets involved, including Mercury, Mars, Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter. The fact that some of this energy will be around until next year, led me to reading up on the potential negative effects, but also the metaphysical power of the retrogrades.

As an empath, I am particularly drawn to Chiron, a planet about which I was woefully uniformed in the past. If you are an empath (even if you are usually not paying close attention) it is worthwhile looking in into the role of this planet in your everyday life.

Apparently Chiron was named after a centaur Chiron from Greek mythology. Chiron is known as the wounded healer in astrology or metaphysics. He was the god of healing… but was unable to heal himself. He is epitomized by the concept of ‘healer heal thyself.’

The Power Of Your Empathy

Click for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comIf you are an awakened empath, you are probably well-aware of your ability to not just feel the emotions of others, but to also see, hear and know things associated with those emotions and feelings. Unfortunately, as empaths we do not come to this Earth with a guidebook on how to work with our amazing gifts.

Like most of us, you have probably also been fumbling along, learning through trial and error… while learning from others, who also learned through trial and error, and so on, and so on. And through all this you have most likely also been made aware of the so-called ‘shortcomings of being an empath,’ instead of the power of being an empath. And if you are lucky enough to have recognized or been taught to own your power, it probably still came attached with a reminder of the ‘shortcomings.’

How To Survive Full Moon Sensitivity

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comEver notice that during a Full Moon your emotions are heightened? Some people also have trouble sleeping, while others can’t get enough sleep. It is also the time of a month when first responders and hospital emergency rooms tend to be more busy. Parents and teachers also tend to feel like they are running around like headless chickens around this time.

Personally, I find myself much more sensitive during this time. I can see the effects on my clients as well. During full moons I like to try to keep to myself and observe, it’s a good way to prevent these sensitivities from affecting me too much.

Full moon energy affects all of us, but the length and strength is different for everyone. Depending on our astrological charts, if the Moon is in an area of the zodiac that is an important aspect of our chart, it could deeply affect us. It is an individual experience to be sure.

Social Survival Skills For Empaths

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comBeing an empath can be an incredibly helpful gift to have in day-to-day life. But living with this gift also has its challenges, and overcoming these are part of the journey for every empath.

While everyone’s gifts and experiences are unique, some life lessons seem to be very common among the empath community. Feeling misunderstood, or like you don’t quite belong, is a good example. I’ve heard this from so many empaths! Finding your tribe is incredibly important and helpful as you navigate your sensitivity. Connecting with people who understand you can support your growth and greatly increase your comfort as an empath.
