“Am I an empath?” explores the challenges and benefits to being an empath.

Do you often feel the pain of others? Do you feel drained after being around certain people for too long? Do you find yourself caring for or taking care of others more than yourself sometimes? Do you feel feelings deeper, harder, and longer than others. Are you sensitive to smells, crowds or excessive talking. Do you have a strong connection to nature or the animal kingdom? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be an empath.

The trademark of an empath is that they feel and absorb other people's emotions and/or physical symptoms because of their high sensitivities.

Empaths are often targeted by emotional vampires due to the strength of the empath's emotions and vibrant energy.

So being an empath can be exhausting, especially if you don't understand this characteristic of yourself, and don't know how to protect yourself.

In today's podcast, we will explore the traits of an empath with Dr. Judith Orloff, the leading voice in the field of empaths, psychiatry and intuitive development.

Dr. Orloff is the author of the best selling Book “The Empath's Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People.” In the book she educates readers about empaths, and offers strategies for empaths to protect themselves.

Am I An Empath?

The question “Am I an empath” is easy to figure out, and Dr. Orloff encourages empaths to develop their sensitivities even more, while staying centered.
