How do You Know if You are an Empath or Simply Sensitive?

Do you ever wonder whether you are an Empath or not?

Over the years, I have often been asked the question: ‘How do I know for sure if I’m an Empath?’

My answer always tends to be the same: Generally, if you’re an Empath when you discover the term and the traits it encompasses, you just know whether it applies to you or not. It is like a light bulb moment. You finally have an explanation for all that you feel and have experienced throughout your life… But, there are always exceptions. Continue reading

Empaths! The Word is Spreading

This morning I was happy to find a newsletter from the renowned psychiatrist, Dr. Judith Orloff, in my inbox. The newsletter stated she had recently gone gluten and sugar free and she now recommends this way of eating to other Empaths.

I was excited by the fact the word is clearly spreading about the importance of addressing the diet to find complete balance, and health and happiness as an Empath.

I have written about the benefits of changing the diet for some years now, after seeing the changes in myself when I removed certain foods from my life. Not only in my health but in my Empath ways.

Certain foods can play havoc with Empath traits. But by making small changes to the diet it can transform our life in the most amazing way.

The more of us who discover the effect food has on our happiness and health, not just as an Empath but as a human, the more who can then spread the word.

I believe so much in the transformational benefits of diet changes, for those who are Sensitive, that I wrote a book about it called: ‘The Eating Plan for Empaths and HSPs – Change Your Diet Change Your Life!

The book is written for an Empath by an Empath. I explain how my traits had been impacted, by what I was eating, and the changes I made.

Here’s a snippet of what the book entails:

  • Why the wrong diet leaves the Empath life-weary, energetically open and overly receptive to the negative emotions of others.
  • What you don’t know about wheat. How it has been genetically altered and why this has affected our health and Empath traits.
  • The destructive effect wheat and sugar has on the Sensitive person’s brain and the reason they are both hidden in most processed foods.
  • Why Empaths and HSPs are hardwired into becoming addicted to drug-like foods and how this can be corrected.
  • How strong emotions, coupled with poor diet, damage the gut and trigger anything from anxiety and excessive introversion to lower back pain and stomach disorders, and the approaches to rectify the damage.
  • Ways to soothe the seat of emotions through nutrition.
  • An easy-to-follow eating plan that will get you off wheat and sugar for good, reshape your life and lead to a more blissful existence.

the-eating-plan-for-empaths-and-hsps-pic-monkeyAs well as a 4-week elimination plan, the book includes at least 90 mouth-watering, easy-to-follow recipes to make the food transition a comfortable and effortless one.

After much trial and error in the kitchen over the years (and mess), I have amassed a wide selection of gluten and sugar-free recipes and have included many of them in the book.

The path of the Empath is already challenging enough; we should not be  taken down by what we eat.

We all want to find balance and peace, but that will not happen without a change in our eating habits.

The wrong diet affects our spiritual awareness and prevents intuition from developing. It also heightens the impact of other people’s energy and emotions, and hinders one’s ability to find inner calm, happiness and health

Until we make necessary changes to the diet, we don’t get to see how foods, like wheat and sugar, have been unnecessarily bringing us down emotionally and affecting our health.

My life has transformed since changing my diet and I know yours can too.

If you are interested and ready to change your diet and change your life, whilst losing some weight in the process, this book is for you!

Until next time

Surviving Christmas: A Guide for Empaths

tree_2

It is getting ever closer to that dreaded time of year… Christmas!

For some, Christmas is a much loved time. I wish I could make the same claim. For many reasons, the festive season is one my least favourite times of year.

When I was a younger (child to mid-twenties), I loved everything about Christmas. But as the years passed the month of December became harder for me to cope with.

Without fail, every year, at the end of November or beginning of December I would start to feel low and my energy dropped. I would feel as though I was coming down with a bug and would get tense or harassed. Then on or around December 28th I would strangely go back to feeling better.

In my mind I would always find a reason: being extra busy at work, having a busy social life, eating unhealthily, drinking too much alcohol, not having enough sunlight, not doing enough exercise, etc…

Over the years I tried many different approaches to make December more bearable: I made changes to my diet, exercised, stopped going out, stopped drinking alcohol, went on a sunshine breaks… But, no matter what I tried I still felt awful come December.

And then it suddenly dawned on me… what I was feeling wasn’t ‘my stuff’ at all, but everyone else’s.

Clear Negative Energy and Restore Empath Health with Organic Salt

It is said that the ‘father of medicine,’ Hippocrates, was among the first to discover the magical healing qualities of sea salt, after noticing how quickly seawater healed wounded fishermen’s hands.

Salt has been given much bad press over the years and probably for good reason. The refined table salt that most of the Western world has consumed, and which is in all processed foods, is nothing short of toxic to the body. It causes many health problems. But it’s a different story with organic rock or sea salt.

Not only is organic rock or sea salt a great medicinal healer, it is also deeply purifying energetically. It has the power to draw out and dissolve negative energies from the emotional and physical body. This is especially helpful if your day involves interacting with others, where too often, as an Empath, you absorb stressed or anxious energy.

Unrefined salt, from the sea or rock, is an amazing grounding and energy clearing tool that can be safely and effectively used daily, inside and outside the body.

And not just for clearing negative energy: Continue reading

The Essential Protective Stone for an Empath

haematite stonesMany Empaths find themselves drawn to crystals and tumble stones at some point on their journey.

They have this draw for many reasons: Maybe it’s for the crystal’s beauty, texture or colour.

But more often than not, the Empath’s intuition guides them towards certain crystals for the powerful healing vibrations they emit.

There are hundreds of types of crystals, all with countless healing properties. But the stone that, in my opinion, every Empath should keep with them, as part of their grounding and energy protecting arsenal, is Haematite.

Haematite is a very powerful stone that has many incredible qualities. It is known as the grounding stone of grounding stones and has powerful protective and mirroring properties.

Haematite has the ability to both balance your energy and raise your vibration: lifting you up energetically whilst keeping you grounded. And the one thing all Empaths need is to stay grounded! Continue reading

10 Essential Oils to Re-Balance the Empath

essential_oilsFor the Empath, having a variety of quick-fix-pick-me-ups is vital for their continuous health and happiness.

After spending time in public places and around draining people, or just when the stresses of life bring us down, the last thing we may want to do is sit in meditation or do energy clearing techniques to realign ourselves.

When affected by the energy of a hectic world, the idea of waving a healing wand to rebalance and recharge is a most appealing idea. And this is where essential oils come in.

Essential oils work like a magical elixir and have many incredible benefits, they are the perfect way for a busy Empath to stay in balance. The oils help still the mind, clear energy, aid restful sleep and return us to a state of equilibrium.

The value of essential oils has been known for more than 6000 years, not only for their amazing healing properties but for their ability to bring balance back to the body and mind, and promote emotional wellbeing.

Essential oils are composed of tiny molecules that are easily penetrated by the body.

When the essences are inhaled through the nose, the cells that line the nasal passages send a message to the limbic system in the brain, via the olfactory senses. These messages then act as instructions for the limbic system.

The limbic system is a part of the brain that controls the major functions of the body and has a huge impact on the emotions and emotional memory (it is also responsible for sparking nostalgia through certain scents). When the limbic system  receive the oil’s message it responds to the request and takes action, whether that be to heal the body, calm the mind or both.

Depending on the oil will depend on the instruction the body gets. For example: with lavender the message will be one of relaxation, if it’s jasmine oil the message will be to promote calm to the body.

The following essential oils are brilliant for the Empath, and have many therapeutic benefits. Not only do they help heal physical ailments but they also work to remove emotional energy held within the body, or within the aura, and act as incredible Empath elixirs.

You can use the oils listed below  in diffusers, room sprays, candles, body and facial oils, on a handkerchief, on your  pillow, and even in your bath. Continue reading

The Real Reason Empaths Have Heightened Emotions

 

pexels-photo-630834.jpeg

Although emotions are part of human life and something everyone has to live with, Empaths and HSPs are known to have heightened emotions. This basically means they get upset easier, feel fear and nervousness more readily, and when they get down it can take them longer to get back up… But did you know there was a reason for this?

There is a certain part of the brain called the amygdala which plays a part in emotional overload.

Dr. Elaine Aron, a research psychologist, found the amygdala to be highly activated in Sensitive people.  The more Sensitive you are the more this gland seems to work.

The amygdala is a set of small almond-shaped clusters of nuclei, located deep within the brain’s temporal lobe, which plays a huge part in processing emotions. The more aggressive the emotion the more responsive the amygdala becomes, and is responsible for triggering the stress response hormones.

Dr. Aron found, through a series of trials and research, that when Sensitive people (Empaths and HSPs) were shown pictures of human suffering the amygdala became highly activated. Which in turn released hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline into the bloodstream, which further enticed emotional responses.

The amygdala is not a thinking part of the brain. It is a reacting part which activates when exposed to stimuli such as stress, fear or other strong emotions. It causes an automatic response known as the fight-or-flight response.

The fight-or-flight response is the body’s way of protecting us from dangerous situations. The process elevates hormones to give the energy and strength to run away from danger or stay and fight.

Two of the  hormones released into the body, by amygdala activation, are adrenalin and cortisol. These hormones increase heart rate, respiration and glucose levels. All of which are essential for increased body activity. But, they can also ignite fearful emotions and anxiety.

When these hormones are constantly activated by the endocrine glands (courtesy of amygdala activation), and not used through body movement, etc. it can cause heightened emotional responses. This eventually puts other organs and hormones out of balance and leads to illnesses (such as heart disease, adrenal fatigue and diabetes), as well as problems within the energy body (leaky aura and blocked or excessively open chakras).

chakras

An Empath does not need to watch another endure pain to experience suffering. Simply being in the presence of someone suffering emotionally is enough to ignite a reaction, whether the other person shows their emotions or not. An Empath feels them and therefore reacts to them. This means the Empath often overproduces adrenalin and cortisol. Both of which stimulate fearful emotions and can lead to weight gain (another reason many Empaths have pot bellies).

In normal situations, when a stressful situation is removed stress levels return to normal, and the amygdala stops reacting. It is when the stress triggers do not decrease that problems arise. This is where issues can occur for the Empath.

Empaths don’t get away from stressful emotions easily. Not only do they have to deal with their own day-to-day stresses but that of others too…

The Empath may stop feeling other people’s emotions soon after leaving them. But this is not always the case. Some people’s emotional energy can cling to the Empath for days after (see this post to learn more). Which means the amygdala is constantly activated and large amounts of unnecessary hormones are dumped into the body.

What to do about it?

1. Avoid triggers:

The first step we can take in preventing unnecessary amygdala activation is to avoid known triggers. The people you know who stimulate a negative emotional response (see post here) lasting more than a day should be avoided.

The amygdala is a defence mechanism activated by emotional responses. It can also be triggered by emotional memories.

People who bring nothing to your life but emotional pain eventually become an Empath trauma trigger and should probably be avoided.

2. Control your mind and thoughts:

Keep the mind quiet to stop unnecessary amygdala activation from thoughts, read post here

3. Avoid stimulants:

Sensitives react to coffee and other stimulants more than most. It is best to know your caffeine intake limits and stay within them (take note at which point you get a physical response – too much caffeine can cause shakiness, pounding heart, flushing, faster breathing and an aching chest – and stay under the that amount). Also drug-like food has a huge impact on an Empath brain (read more about this subject here) and should be avoided.

4. Exercise daily:

Exercise has many redeeming benefits for the Empath. In the case of amygdala activation, it helps clear excess stress hormones from the bloodstream (which would otherwise cause damage).

5. Control glucose levels through diet:

Regularly experiencing stressful emotions, your own or off others’, results in extra glucose being dumped into the bloodstream (from amygdala hormone activation), the last thing an Empath needs is their diet to contribute to this problem. Avoiding sugar or sugar-forming foods can prevent this from happening.

If you are one who carries excess belly fat, your body is receiving too much glucose for its needs.  If you want to learn more about how the right diet can transform an Empath’s life you may want to read this post.

I hope this blog post helped you understand how your brain plays a vital part in your Empath wellbeing, and how the amygdala’s activation impacts your emotional health.

Here are 50 ways of being which, if adopted, will see many incredible positive changes happen in your life!

1. Let Go of Expectations of Others

Expectations can cause untold pain and frustration. Let them go and it will free you from disappointment.

2. Learn to Accept

You cannot and should not control everything in life. Acceptance is essential if you want to live a happy, healthy life.

3. Release Dependency on Others

When you depend on another to make you happy, or to give your life meaning, you miss out on discovering how incredible you are.

4. Control your Thoughts

Stress and unhappiness are born from chaotic Empath musings. Quieten your mind and calm your thoughts.

5. Judge Not

Judging makes you fearful of judgements. Choose not to judge, yourself or others, and you will find more emotional freedom.

6. Stop Procrastinating

Don’t put off today what you can do tomorrow. Why waste life thinking about what you could be doing?Just do it!

7. Be at Peace with Criticism

Trying to avoid criticism prevents you from doing what you are meant to do and becoming who you are meant to be as an Empath.

8. Change not Another nor let Another Change You

Don’t mould others into the people you want them to be and don’t change yourself to please another. Just be! Allow your Empath self to be true.

9. Don’t Take it Personally

If another treats you badly, it is a reflection on them. Not you!

10. Get Out in Nature

Spending time in nature is grounding and uplifting and will soothe your Empath soul.

11. Never Give Up

Good things don’t arrive overnight. People have little appreciation of that which comes easy. No matter what your age: Believe in yourself and continue striving towards your goals.

12. Leave the Crowd Behind

You are here to enjoy your exclusive life experience. Follow your calling not the crowd’s.

13. Collect Experiences not Treasures

When you leave your body you only take your knowledge and experiences. Make as many as you can.

14. Abandon the Fear of Failure

A failure is an experience that simply teaches you how not to do something. Whatever you choose to do as an Empath you will learn. Don’t let fear hold you back from trying.

15. Stay Protected

Keeping away from negative, draining energy will keep you empowered as an Empath.

16. Embrace Success

Expect success as an Empath and you will always have it!

17. Love What You Do and Do What You love

You receive back what you give out. Project powerful, uplifting vibrations into the world and collect the rewards.

20. Create The Change You Want To See

Don’t wait. Create your Empath dream life. Be the change see the change.

21. Know Your Worth

No man is better than himself. Putting another on a pedestal instills the idea of unworthiness. Believe in your own brilliant Empath-self!

22. Listen to Others

Listening generously, to those who truly need to be heard, is healing. Heal others heal yourself.

23. Think Not of Revenge

You don’t need to ‘teach another a lesson’. Believe in karma. What goes around does indeed come around.

It is your journey! Choose the Empath life you want to live.

25. Send Love into the World

Opening your heart to others is a show of strength. Love is empowering. Love will heal you and the world!

26. Let Go of Pain

You wouldn’t hold a fiery ember, so why allow painful emotions to burn within?

27. Don’t Allow Rules to Stifle Creativity

Creativity allows the Empath’s spirit to soar. If a rule no longer works make a new one.

28. Step Out of Your Comfort Zone Daily

If you want to evolve as an Empath, do something each day that makes you uncomfortable.

29. Stop Waiting for Another to Complete You

The only person who can make you whole is you.

30. Learn to Be on Your Own

Spending time alone turns the Empath’s journey into an extraordinary expedition.

31. Express Gratitude

Being grateful sends a powerful message to the universe that you are open to more reasons to be grateful.

32. Keep Your Self-Talk Positive

A positive inner-voice is the key to a happy, productive Empath life.

33. Eat What Nature Intended

For lasting health and happiness keep your diet clean. Listen to your intuitive dietary promptings and feed yourself nourishing food.

34. Nurture Body Mind and Spirit

Your body, mind and spirit are connected. Only when all three are balanced will you find harmony as an Empath.

35. Free Your Voice and Learn to Say No

Only do it because you want to. You will never please others by constantly giving into their expectations. They just expect more.

36. Remember Your Friends

One of the biggest regrets of those on their deathbed is losing touch with old friends. You cannot make new ‘old friends’. You rarely make friends like the ones who have been in your life for the long hall, don’t forget them.

37. Free Yourself from Childhood Issues

The child in you lived and got through those difficult times; don’t let the adult be punished by them.

38. Let Go of Resentment

Why let another’s actions blight your life? Resentment makes you bitter. Let it go.

39. Control Anger

Breathe though and release it. Anger only punishes the bearer.

40. Help Others to Help Themselves

Instead of doing it for them, show them how.

41. Lose The Need to be Right

Wanting to be right just makes others wrong. Value opinions.

42. Question Everything

Don’t believe everything you read, hear or see. Trust your Empath gut. If it doesn’t feel right chances are it’s not.

43. Give Without Expect of Return

Doing nice things for others, without expecting anything back, is nourishment for the soul.

44. Stop Throwing Pity Parties

Like attracts like. Talking like a victim keeps you stuck in that mind-set.

45. Strive for Many Life Experiences

Keep your Empath life energised with new experiences every day.

46. Chase Your Dreams

Don’t die with your dreams unrealized. Step out there and create them.

47. Trust Your Intuition

Your Empath Knowing has more power than you may realise. Let it guide you.

48. Find Your Passions

How will you know what your true passions are if you don’t seek them out?

49. Select Acquaintances With Prudence

As an Empath, you become who you spend most time with. Choose wisely.

50. Choose Happiness

For a joyful  life make the decision to feel happy each and every day. And stay away from anything that hinders your joy!

Discover Your Inner Empath Guidance

Modern life often brings daily challenges for an Empath. If it’s not dealing with their own ‘issues’, it’s picking up on the pained emotions of people or the collective energy of the masses.

It may look like there is no way to get away from the challenges life throws. Especially when it seems that when one hurdle is jumped, another appears.

But all Empaths have an Inner Guidance (IG), that they can depend on to guide them through the challenging times, but it helps to recognize its many signals. 

Your IG is heard in the quiet guiding voice that whispers to you when you’re troubled. It is sensed in strong gut-sensations  and intuitive notions. When you listen, your IG will guide you through life.

When in tune with your inner guidance, Empath life becomes smoother sailing. But the downside to this guidance is it is easily manipulated by external energy or by internal chemical imbalances (caused by chakra or endocrine imbalance). In particular, anything that lowers your vibration, such as low-level energy, a poor diet, chemicals or stimulants can affect its clarity.

To use and fully trust your IG, it helps to have a quiet mind and a balanced body.

If you have been regularly experiencing negative bodily or emotional reactions, it is a good sign that something is off and changes need to be made.

I mentioned in my last post that sensitivities are on the rise for many people (and not just the Empaths) in the form of allergies, intolerances, negative emotional responses and depression. These are clear signs that something is amiss.

For years, many Awakened people have endured varying ascension symptoms that come and go without any distinguishing triggers. But now things are different.  The reactions are becoming more intrusive, both physically and mentally, and are revealing the imbalances in either the body, mind or spirit.

The problem is, many people, Empaths included, tend to focus on either the development of spiritual or physical self, but not both at the same time. They may pray, meditate or chant for hours each day and spend every waking moment wondering how they could serve others, but do no exercise, smoke twenty cigarettes a day and eat nothing but processed food. Or they may go to the other extreme of exercising two to three hours a day and are fastidious about what they eat, but have no ethical or spiritual practice.

If you are to find complete balance and harmony, you need to have the mind, body and spirit in unison.

The body is home to our spirit, or soul, which is our true eternal-self. The soul carries all life experiences and knowledge and is the only thing we get to take with us when we leave this body. Generally, when we have found balance in body and mind, and strive to live an honest life, our soul is at peace. Ignore its promptings, however, and life becomes more difficult.

If you read my posts you may have noticed I am a massive advocate for taking self-responsibility. It is my belief that if we want to see change we have to make change. We hold all the answers we need.

 

We may each have teachers who plant seeds of knowledge and offer us clues about which direction we should be going in life, but it is up to each of us to do it for ourselves, and decide what is or isn’t right for us.

It is easy to become dependant on another’s teachings or words of wisdom. But everyone is an individual and each life journey should be a reflection of this. 

You may have access to a wealth of external information but the real answers lie within. You hold the key to your own happiness and freedom, but you only find it by following your inner guidance.

In these trying times it is too easy to get distracted by the craziness of the world and forget what this game of ‘Life’ is really all about. Evolving!

If you want to find ways to help you tune into your inner guidance and live a more fulfilled life, you may want to read 7 Secrets of the Sensitive. It is filled with information to help the Empath find balance and live an empowered life.

As a side note: if you are struggling emotionally, with no obvious trigger, if you feel like you’ve lost your faith in everything, or if you are completely frustrated with what’s going on in the world, you may find it helpful to read up on Near Death Experiences (NDEs) or Past Life Regression. This kind of material gives a much-needed reality check and puts life back into perspective. I recommend anything by Raymond Moody for NDE’s and Brian Weiss for Past Life Regression.

Hope this helps on Your Empath journey.

How the Empath Benefits from Taking Supplements

 

If you are an Empath, you will know, only too well, how easy it is to pick up coughs, colds and other ailments off those we spend time with.

Empaths often get twice as many ailments as those who do not pick up the energy of others. So, why is that?

An out of balance Empath, especially one who has absorbed the stresses of others, as well as having their own to deal with, need only briefly be in the presence of someone with the beginnings of a sniffle to pick up a full-blown dose. Of which, the ensuing symptoms tend to be worse than the original carrier.

The problem is, many Empaths are not aware of their own imbalances. Some become so used to feeling ‘out-of-sorts’, after picking up stress from others, they do not notice their body becoming weaker and their immune system less resilient.

I have discovered the best way to stay in balance, as an Empath, is to have all bases covered. And what I mean by that is to take care of our physical, mental and energetic bodies (body, mind and spirit).

In this post I am focusing on balance of the body (immune system) in the way of supplements.

Heard of the saying: ‘like attracts like’ or ‘like increases like?’ Well, it works in all areas of life. Generally those who regularly pick up the negative emotions of others, often feel like crap. When you feel crap you want to eat crap: fast food, stodgy and sugary food. Basically the type of food that has little in the way of nutritional value. So you feel rubbish, eat rubbish, feel more rubbish… and get no nutrients.

Nutrients are our safeguard against illness because they help keep the immune system strong.

I came to realise, firsthand, the importance of supplements, through unintentional trial and error over the years. In my haphazard approach to taking vitamins and minerals (taking them for 6 months then non for the next), I found that when taking supplements I had far less immune-system-related illnesses than when not taking them.

There is much controversy over the effectiveness of supplements, especially synthetic ones, and whether they actually work. Many experts argue that a healthy, balanced diet is all we need for optimum nutrition levels. But, even with the healthiest of diets, do we really know how nutritiously balanced our food is?

It is known that our soil is no longer rich in minerals, as it once was, which ultimately affects the mineral content of the fruit and vegetables grown in it. The ripe and brightly coloured fruits on our supermarket shelves may have travelled half-way around the world, and are already months old, before they get to our kitchens. Meaning a much lower vitamin count than if delivered to the supermarkets within hours of being harvested.

It is easy to get reliable information on the web regarding supplements and their benefits. And it is well worth doing the research.

Depending on your areas of weakness will depend on which supplement you should be taking, but I have found the following to be a good all-round elixir:

  • A good multi-vitamin and mineral.
  • Extra Vitamin C and Zinc (especially if you get many colds).
  • Omega 3, found, for example, in fish oils or organic coconut oil (a diet consisting of a ratio 3-1 of Omega 6 to Omega 3 is a good balance. However, the average Western diet consists of a ratio of about 15-1 or more, through the high usage of vegetable oils in processed foods).
  • A  good Multi-B vitamin.
  • Acidophilus (especially if you suffer from a sensitive digestive tract).
  • Vitamin D3 (more for the darker, winter months).
  • Digestive Enzymes (to be taken with meals) which help break down food and extract the nutrients. Especially beneficial to those who suffer with indigestion or low stomach acid.
  • Magnesium Many people are deficient in magnesium. This mineral is especially beneficial to anyone suffering anxiety, muscle aches or constipation.

If you have any underlying health conditions, speak to a health practitioner before using supplements.

I write these posts with the intention of helping Empaths help themselves. But we need to take responsibility for self. What works for one won’t always work for another. So in that respect take what feels right to you and discard the rest. Empaths tend to get that ‘gut feeling’ (the knowing) when something is not right.
