You have discovered you might be an empath and want to know the exact signs – it is not all bad you know! Once you learn the tricks of psychic protection, you will find it much easier to navigate this world without being energetically punched down all the time.
1. You Take On Other People’s Energy
You really can’t help it. This is the key trait of the empath. You feel someone else’s energy and emotions, then begin to vibrate to the same emotion. If another is crying, you can start to tear up. Someone is angry – you can feel this anger literally burn your aura. Someone is negative and fearful – you sink low with them, and it seems you can’t help it! Sound familiar? The good news is that once you become consciously aware that this isn’t normal (the non-empaths do none of these things) then you are halfway towards finding a solution to this. Who wants to be vibrating to other people’s emotions all day? Its exhausting.
2. High Natural Intuition
You have intuition in spades, but doesn’t everyone? Actually no, as an empath you have unique skills that others don’t seem to have. Being an empath is a bit like being clairsentient, except that clairsentients sense things without ‘catching’ the emotion. As an empath, like a clairsentient, you feel things psychically. You know what others are feeling just by looking at them. You chat to them and you can know their intentions without hearing it from their lips. You understand how they are thinking, as if they were an extension of yourself. It is easy. You know what you know. Your intuition fires on all cylinders.
3. People Drain You Easily
This can be a problem for you. When around other people, you are so giving that you take on other’s emotions or problems but are left feeling tired as a result. If you are doing this every day, willingly giving away energy to help others, you find you don’t have much left for yourself. You become more and more drained and perhaps irritated, angry or feeling downright used. Something has to give. The answer is to pull back and stop giving yourself away so easily. Only give to those who have a right to take, like your close people. Take more time for yourself and pamper yourself. Put yourself first for a while.
