What is an Empath

Do you experience chronic exhaustion in social settings? Has anyone ever told you that “you’re too sensitive” for this world? If so you maybe an empath.

An empath is a person who absorbs the emotions of others like a sponge and experiences these emotions as their own.

While empaths are warm, intuitive and compassionate people, their high level of sensitivity makes them prone to experiencing issues such as anxiety, depression, exhaustion and physical illnesses.

If your someone who is attracting toxic people and often sets poor boundaries, feel negative energy and feel like you can’t cope anymore with over whelming feelings then by working with an intuitive Coach, what may seem as a curse to you can be transformed to inner strength, managed, and used to empower others and can be turned into a lucrative business.

Using this resource to develop physical mental, emotional and spiritual balance. You’ll awaken your highest potential and access the strength, love and wisdom found within your soul.

This impacts on healing the physical, mental and emotional realms. Learn about your spiritual purpose and how you can make a difference to others one by one.

After coming to terms with my own awakening and discovering why majority of my days were spent in exhaustion and sometimes pain when I had hardly exerted myself I started researching into this and looked for ways to improve my energy on many levels. I was astonished as to how many different empaths there are.

I am what you call a Physical and Astral empath meaning I am able to absorb or mirror the illnesses and bodily pains of other people, great gift I hear you say! Although this gift may sound like a burden (for untrained empaths) it helps us to deeply understand other people and develop high levels of compassion, empathy and wisdom.

As an Astral empath, I see hear and feel the energies and experience Astral beings, be it Spirits, Angels or Interdimensional beings. Sounds a bit out there and scary, however at the start of experiencing this I did think I was going crazy. Plus this can and did interfere with human daily life and can take you away from being in the present moment.

I decided how can I work with this rather than it become an obstacle in my life, trying to suppress these experiences thinking that I have a very warped imagination. I set about learning how to manage it using this to my advantage in my work I was called to do. Once you have an understanding and embrace the unknown you have something to work with and I believe everything can be turned into a positive and serve for the greater good.
