How to know if you're an empath

An Empath is a someone who has the capability to strongly feel the emotions, energy and thoughts of the people around them. The problem is when they use their ability too much, like capturing and apprehending “feelings” for the people around them, they can get weaker as they absorb too much warmth, emotion and information. But like any other psychic abilities, the ability of the empaths can be handled and restrained and still be able to help out some people and also enjoy using their abilities while doing so.


Empathy is somehow related to clairsentience – the ability to foretell events through feelings – but it doesn’t automatically mean that it demands to look through the psychic realm and paranormal phenomenon. Empathy is more of upholding and justifying the revelations and knowledge about the physical world whilst gathering and accumulating the feelings, thoughts and even illnesses of the people, animals and the whole biological community that surrounds the empath.


You can believe that empaths are tremendously sensitive people and outstandingly advanced people who are in touch with and are amazingly connected to their surroundings. If you think you are an empath, then you most probably are. Look at the list of signs below that might help you differentiate if you’re an empath or not.


Signs that you most probably are an Empath


  1. You carry the load of other people’s burdens for days after talking to them

It is never easy for you to be free of the burden when a friend opens up to you about how hard life it is for them or any problem that seems to be very heavy for them at the moment. You seem to also be affected by it.


  1. You become easily drained and uncomfortable in social situations

You get easily stressed on social events like reunions, funerals, wedding and large gatherings, just remember to give yourself a time limit of how long you should stay and then go. That would be easier for you.


  1. You distrust or distaste and like or appreciate a person even if it’s your first meeting

It is best believed that empaths can sense and read energies of the people around them, so they can feel and they know if a person could be trusted or not.


  1. Your emotions are like a rollercoaster; sometimes you’re very happy, sometimes you’re very depressed

As quickly as you can be affected with the pull of the earth’s lower vibration energies like fear, anxiety and worry; you can also swiftly get back up to your elevated self when you feel joy and triumph.


  1. You get enthusiastic for other people’s dreams and ideas

When you hear about other people’s happiness, you tend to also have good vibrations in you. This makes them good advisors and counselors. It is one of the great things an empaths can do.


  1. You get in between other people’s problems

Empaths are known to be sensitive and considerate listeners. They feel everything from heartbreak, sorrow, happiness, anger and a lot more. A good advice for an empath would be to set boundaries so they should know when to stop to refrain from draining themselves from listening.


  1. You can tell when a person is faking it

This is when you feel a person’s vibrations and you immediately know if he or she is lying. You just know.


  1. You have been told that you are too sensitive

Some may take it negatively but in truth this is an advantage for empaths. It’s what makes them very compassionate and empathetic and they can even try and influence others to be more compassionate and understanding towards other people.


  1. You cherish your emotions and you want the people around you to do the same as you

Once you become confident and optimistic about your bona fide temperament then it is just right to demand a balanced level of respect from the people that you talk to. If they can’t, then it’s just a matter of time to let go of that person and find new people who can.
