Hope this post finds you happy and healthy, and looking forward to another fabulous weekend!
Summery weather has now arrived in the UK. We’ve had to wait a while. It’s been a long wet winter. Finally, it’s warm enough to sit outside without the need for a warm woolly jumper.
As promised, I am here posting another extract from my new book, 7 Secrets of the Sensitive. The following has been taken from Secret 5: Finding your Empath Wings. I have lifted certain paragraphs from the chapter, so as not to give too much away… 🙂
‘One thing I know is the Empaths are here for an important reason. I can feel it. As I’m sure you can too. You may not know what this purpose is yet, but you are certainly on your way to finding out.
We were born Sensitive for a reason. Not as a punishment, but as a way to build an emotional strength and an empathic understanding not seen on this planet for an age. The empathy, intuition and all-encompassing emotions we experience have thrust us upon a challenging road. This road has already taken us on many highs and lows and we have learnt a lot, often without realizing it. We’ve experienced a world’s worth of emotions and pain, our own and others, a fact few can lay claim to.
Once we understand the root cause of our imbalances and overcome them, it frees us to follow our true-life-purpose. By the time you have finished this book you will know the cause of many of your imbalances and insecurities. You will also know the steps to take to heal yourself. And when you follow them, your purpose will be revealed.
You are already following your true-life-purpose; you just probably cannot see it yet. The challenges you have endured and overcome are all part of it. Even reading this book is part of your destiny; as were the steps that led you here. This information is meant for you. Even if you are not ready for it yet, the seeds are planted and the information is here for when you are.

Many people struggle to find their life purpose and not just the Sensitive. In these ever-changing times this is becoming more obvious. For the Empath, feeling confused whether we are on the right vocational path is common. Even if we enjoy our work we may still feel we are meant for something else. There are many reasons for this, but the way the world makes us feel keeps us in confusion. Because we get emotionally and physically exhausted by spending too much time around others, it can lead us to feeling unfulfilled by what we do. Our low vitality also prevents us from knowing which direction we should be going.
When we absorb other people’s emotions and energy it can drain us of our own. Feeling drained makes us fed-up no matter how much we enjoy our work. And because we feel fed-up it may make us question whether our job is a fit for us. No matter what, an Empath will always get drained if they become overstimulated. The overstimulation does not have to stem from negative energy either. Too much excitement, exhilaration, nervousness or adrenaline-inducing past-times can cause burn-out. Working in an environment where there is a lot of excitement or nervous energy can also cause overstimulation. This is why being around children can be exhausting for the Empath.
Spending too much time around highly charged or negative energy is destructive for the Empath. Not only will they become drained by it but they will also be pulled down by the low frequency of the energy. Working in hospitals, for example, where there is lots of anxious energy can lead the Empath to exhaustion and depression.
Because Empaths are caring, nurturing and have a desire to help those suffering, they may want to work in a job where they can be of service. This type of work can lead to burn-out, especially after the age of thirty. To be of service it can often mean working on the front lines, but it is here the Empath’s energy can easily be zapped.
Non-Sensitive people do not understand our easy-to-burn-out nature. Instead they may see us as being lazy, shirking responsibility or as them doing twice as much work; which can lead to resentments towards the Empath.

When looking for a new career, low self-confidence will hold back the out-of-balance Empath. I say out-of-balance because when in balance we overcome this. If we cannot find a reason for low self-confidence in our backstory, we have to consider its origins may lay elsewhere. Because we pick up insecurity from other people, we can end up carrying their pain like a badge. If we spend a lot of time around those who do not believe in themselves, their beliefs become part of our biography. Discovering what belongs to us and what belongs to another is all part of the re-balancing process. It is not an overnight procedure. There are many layers to unpeel. And just like un-layering an onion, it may bring tears to the eyes.’
7 Secrets of the Sensitive is released on 26th May 2016.
