If so, you might be an empath, and you probably have gone through life being more affected by other people's energies than you realize.
An empath is an individual who has an inherent, natural ability to feel other people's emotions, sensations, and even their pain.
Here are some of the traits of those who are known as 'empaths':
* Empaths are good listeners and easily draw out stories from others.
* Empaths often put others needs before their own, with a deep desire to assist.
* Empaths are deeply in touch with emotions and tend to cry easily, often for no apparent reason (only to find out later a friend or family member is having a rough time).
* Empaths often get overstimulated in chaotic public settings (e.g. they tend to avoid public places like malls).
As an empath, you have a gift, or in many cases, what may feel like a serious curse!
Being an empath can be challenging. It means that you are able to process energy for other people. You feel everything, even if you are not aware of it.
While this is almost always helpful to others; it can leave you severely drained, always running on empty. Because empaths are like sponges, absorbing other people's energies, you can become sick with energy illnesses like chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and anxiety.
Dr. Michael R. Smith, along with NY Times bestsellers Dr. Judith Orloff and Sonia Choquette, are now helping empaths worldwide to awaken to their gifts and become empowered. As Dr. Smith teaches, "you cannot change the fact that you are an empath; it is akin to your eye color. Because you were born with a sensitive nervous system, being an empath is not something to learn. However, you can learn to manage your empathic nature and cope with the energy you perceive from others."
Dr. Smith's popular instruction package, The Complete Empath Toolkit, is a good place to start. It offers hundreds of powerful and unique tools, techniques, meditations, and exercises that will make your life flow with ease and grace.
You will learn the most effective ways that you can take care of yourself and maintain your energetic and emotional sanity. You will become empowered.
Applying these life-changing principles and working them into your daily routine will allow you be happy, joyful, and more prepared to face the demands of your daily life. You will become confident about expressing your own truth, and you will also learn to harness the awesome power of your intuitive guidance system.
Being what some may erroneously call "hypersensitive" to the feelings of others is not a bad thing. It does not mean you are co-dependent. There is nothing wrong with you, although it may feel like there is. After applying the principles of The Complete Empath Toolkit, your life will never be the same.
Says bestselling author/speaker Debra Poneman after discovering that she was an empath and reading the material: "This program is totally life changing! Michael shares brilliant techniques to eliminate the impact of lower vibratory energy, and embrace one's empathic nature. Michael and his profound knowledge are truly a gift to the world."
