Do 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.

Back in the Fall I posted a blog, titled Autumn Wishes, where I mentioned planting bulb, while wishing for a beautiful flower and praying for the fulfillment of a desire.

My personal journey into recovery started on April 16, 2005. I had walked into my first twelfth step meeting that fateful Saturday in tears and confused. I had had enough of my father’s abusive behavior. I didn’t know how I could go on anymore with the life I was living. I knew intuitively I had to find a better way, another way of living, otherwise I was ready to end the life I was living up to this point.
I started this journey of self-discovery because I had moved back in with my parents. I had left an unhealthy relationship, had no job and was back in school. At the time, I felt I had no other option than to move back with them. Tension had been building up to this point. Read the rest of this entry »
