102: Empaths – Turning Your Sensitivities Into Superpowers

By October 29, 2019February 3rd, 2023No Comments

Empaths feel and absorb other people’s emotions. We’re basically highly sensitive. ⠀ ⠀
I sent out a survey a few weeks ago and ask what your biggest struggles are to painting a positive mindset, and one of the most common responses were absorbing other people’s negative energy. So I suspect that many of you are on the empath spectrum as well.⠀ ⠀
It’s important to identify if  you’re an empath or not because then you can actually learn to work with your sensitivities instead of being held back by them.
Your sensitivities can be a gift. It’s almost like heightened intuition. You can sense when something is wrong, when people are lying, or saying they’re fine when really they’re upset. You can connect to the universe’s guidance more deeply.  And best of all, you can start to learn where your real emotions end and where other’s begin.⠀ ⠀
If you’ve a partial empath or just have trouble not taking on the bad vibes from other people, this episode will be highly valuable for you as well.⠀ ⠀
Today we’re talking to Dr. Judith Orloff. Her book The Empath’s Survival Guide was a life-changer for me. And now she’s someone out with her next book Thriving as an Empath, 365 Days of Self-Care for Sensitive People.


We will learn:


  • How to stop absorbing other people’s stress and negative energy
  • How to create healthy boundaries in your relationships
  • Empath protection strategies including a bunch of journaling prompts to start to connect with your gifts.
