Empaths and Inauthenticity

Have you noticed the World’s untruths, being revealed, have skyrocketed lately?

The strange thing is, instead of questioning them, people are accepting these untruths as if it is the normal thing to do.

But the Empaths are struggling with them. The countless pretences they face in daily life are bringing them down.

Empaths have a strong awareness of integrity. They know they shouldn’t lie for personal gain, or to manipulate others. And although they strive towards living their truth, it becomes increasingly difficult when the world is filled with such dishonesty and corruption.

In a world where silver-tongued fraudsters, who spin twisted webs of deceit, are rewarded for their outspoken dishonesty, and those who speak their truth get attacked, it is easy to understand why people are hesitant to live authentically. Truths are suppressed whilst lies snowball out of control.

Empaths feel the energy of a lie, even if they don’t know what the lie is, and are deeply affected by them. We are in a time where dishonesty is breeding and many are living in a state of cognitive dissonance.

Whilst the world is awash with hyped propaganda and disinformation, something will always feel off to the Empath. Continuous lies leave  them confused, anxious or drained, and causes conflict and chaos within their psyche. Global deception is a reason many are so out-of-balance.

It’s not just living under a disingenuous, power-corrupt establishment that creates imbalance within the Empath, simply being in the presence of inauthenticity will throw them into disarray.

When an Empath spends time with someone who is not vibrating truthfully it affects them on many levels.

When in the company of those whose words don’t match their vibrational energy, the Empath brain may scramble. So much so, they struggle to form a complete sentence.

This mind-numbing effect is caused by their Empathic antenna sensing all is not what it seems. It is detecting a person not showing the true reflection of who they are.

Empaths themselves often wear a mask of inauthenticity in certain situations, or find themselves unintentionally morphing, but more on that shortly.

In most cases, when someone creates a fake persona it is a way to hide a side they believe will be rejected. Every human wants to feel special and loved. But because they feel unworthy, many create a fictitious side in their bid to be accepted. Inauthenticity breeds and feeds. An initial quest to fit in can escalate over time into a manipulative personality.


When an Empath encounters inauthentic people they may assume it is their own shortcomings creating the ‘freeze‘. But what is really happening is a brain scramble caused by contradictory energy.

Brain scramble may cause: stumbling over words, memory and thought process being unpleasantly affected, nervousness, anxiety and even illness to occur.

I believe this ‘brain scrambling’ is a form of protection. The brain is alerting us to an inconsistency, or contradiction, with the energy connection. We don’t always know the nature of the contradiction but just that something is off (it is up to us to decipher our reactions).

Anyone who is not emanating truthful vibes will put an Empath on high alert. Even when they are not in imminent danger. Continue reading

Don’t Like What You See? Look a Little Closer… The Mirror of the Empath

mirrorWe have all experienced it, being around someone who has either taken an instant dislike to us, or a bizarre resentment suddenly appears in those we have known for some time.

We may have no idea why another feels this way, as we have not given them reason to have such repugnance towards us. No matter whether they try to hide their feelings or not, an Empath can sense their loathing and it does not feel good!

Someone taking a dislike to another is a completely normal and acceptable part of life. We are all different and there will always be some people we do not get along with, whether Sensitive or not.

What is often baffling to the Empath is why some people act in an animostic way towards them, when they know they are a likeable and trustworthy person.
