Engineer, single mom and…Empath: How I survived my spiritual awakening

Categories :Empaths, Intuition

Being an Empath can be a very rough ride. My own journey involved healing a huge amount of resentment at how it “happened” to me. Although I am at peace now with the fact that my life is “different” than anyone else I know, it’s been a long, painful and extremely lonely path to reach this feeling of acceptance.

Coming from a working class family, I spent my twenties in school working towards what I considered to be the key to success and happiness: a good career.  After a Bachelor’s degree in psychology, I started on my PhD. But a weird turn of events lead me to abandon my PhD., move the the US and switch fields to get a Master’s degree in engineering. From people to computers…

Looking back on it, I now feel that I was being protected from a career in psychology that would have been too draining since I was an Impaired Empath. I would have ended up emotionally burned out before I had a chance to get my Empath skills under control, which would not happen for another 7 years. Constantly experiencing every patient’s feeling as my own would have been soul crushing at the time.

I had been suffering from depression since my childhood (mostly due to uncontrolled Empath skills) but I had always managed to keep under control so as to remain highly functional.  In fact, most people I knew would have been surprised to hear that I was unhappy.  And yet, I was a tortured soul.  I was constantly run over by what everyone else was feeling but I didn’t know it at the time.  I thought everyone felt that way and I figured I was just very wimpy for not being able to deal with it.  I was deemed overly sensitive and told to “get over it”.

A few years into my career as an engineer, I married and became pregnant.  And that’s where the flood gates opened.  What had been a trickle of jumbled up Empath and intuitive information became a violent river that could not be stopped.  I unexpectedly found myself completely taken over by powerful feelings that made no sense to me.  Why was I suddenly filled with anger while making peanut butter and jelly toast? Why was I exhausted as soon as I stepped into a busy mall?  And why oh why would I get annoying thoughts about other people’s physical ailments?  I would “feel” in my own body other people’s diseases.  On top of that, I had terrible nightmares about people who would inevitably invade my bedroom at night.  I felt constantly exposed and drained.  Needless to say, I was exhausted.

My unborn son’s own energy had propelled me beyond the wall that I had dutifully built to block all this “weird” stuff and it triggered a chaotic spiritual awakening.  This was especially hard for me because I had no spiritual background whatsoever.  Not only that, but I had never been interested in religion or the spiritual aspect of life, even though I attended the best catholic schools in Montreal.  For me, life was primarily physical:  You live, you work, you have kids, you retire, you die.  Your brain dissolves, game over.

So when this spiritual baggage showed up on my door step, I resisted it with all my determination which, as my friends and family will tell you, is quite considerable.  The following years were very dark for me.  The dark night of the soul, it’s been called.  I felt like I was getting ripped apart as I tried to juggle my new role as a mother, my career as an engineer and the weird stuff that was happening to me internally from having fully awakened but totally uncontrolled Empath and intuitive abilities.

It was tough enough to have to deal with all that was happening to me, but it was even harder to have to go through this without the support I desperately needed.  Understandably, my family and friends were all very disturbed by all this.  I had studied psychology long enough to know that I sounded completely delusional.  Although I hold no grudge about it to all those involved, it was the most excruciating process to see everyone leave my life when I felt I needed them the most.

My friends looked at me like I was insane and severed all contact.  I was mocked and ridiculed by acquaintances.   My family was so uncomfortable about this that they refused to talk about it.   My husband grew immensely resentful that I had “changed”.  He had married an engineer and he was now stuck with some kind of weirdo Empath intuitive person who could not go to the mall or attend Christmas parties.  I was asked not to disclose my situation to my extended family.  But really, I was implicitly asked not to disclose anything to anyone so that everyone could pretend like nothing was happening.

I realize now that only another Empath could have understood how holding your own child can be overwhelming.  The purity of his love combined with my my extreme sensitivity would leave me completely exhausted.  My body was unable to handle such a constant, high level of activation.   It’s like being at war all the time, even though nothing visible is attacking you.  It was hard even for me to accept this and I don’t blame others for having struggled with it as well.

So I found myself completely alone.  Words can’t describe how abandoned I felt in my times of need.   This was many years ago when the term Empath referred only to fictional characters in fantasy role playing games and science fiction TV shows.    And it didn’t occur to me until much later in life that I could have found a spiritual counselor to guide and support me through this disorienting transition.

Of course, life has a way to work itself out…  Over the years, I developed techniques to manage my rogue Empath skills.  That’s how the Empath Survival Program was born.  I figured out how to use my intuitive skills productively, both in my work as an engineer and as an intuitive counselor.  I created an online community for Empaths, so that no one ever has to go through this alone.  I found counselors who were willing and able to listen to me as I worked all this out.   Some family members got used to the idea that I am what I am and have been more supportive and accepting.  New friends who had similar experiences came my way.  And now I constantly run into people who tell me about their intuitive and Empath experiences!  I finally accepted myself as I am and although I initially felt powerless and a victim to this process, I can now organize my life to feel at peace with my situation.

But to this day, it remains a balancing act between my physical life as a single mom/engineer and my spiritual life.  Our modern society is completely devoid of support for those of us who get swept away by a powerful spiritual calling.  Every day, I have to be ready to suddenly receive the strong messages of my spiritual self and seamlessly switch gears so I can go back to loading the dishwasher.  While people are going to parties, I am going on silent retreats to give myself a break.  It’s weird but it’s what works for me.

So wherever you find yourself on your spiritual journey (and if you are reading this, you probably already had your own awakening), keep in mind that it’s always a work in progress and if you find yourself lost and confused…rest assured that you are not alone.

But please do me a favor and find support, locally or on the web.  Talk to a spiritual counselor.  It does make a world of difference…

Empaths: Does your house have a “Supportive Energy”?

Empath tree
Categories :Empaths, Intuition

empath feng shuiEmpaths and Intuitives tend to be extremely sensitive to everything around them.  Which is why it is SO important for us to surround ourselves with positive energy, especially when it comes to our home.

“Home” is the place where we rest from the hustle and bustle of the outside world.  For Empaths, having a calm, soothing and supportive home environment allows us to ground, recharge and rejuvenate on a daily basis.

I recently felt like my newly purchased house needed some “energy upgrades”.  I had already made some changes based on my intuitive sense of what was needed but I wanted someone’s expert perspective.  By a weird series of events, I fortunately connected with Cheryl Janis, a very gifted Feng Shui consultant and, incidentally, an Empath.

What I like most about Feng Shui is that it can make a world of difference for spiritually sensitive people.  It tends to be annoying how to we pick up every negative energy around us.  BUT we can also pick up every positive energy as well…if we’re paying to attention to it.  Adjusting the energy in our home can bring about a huge transformation and a major sigh of relief in our daily life.

No matter what kind of energy quirks we have going on, Feng Shui can offer solutions.  Most of the time, they are VERY simple ones too!  Changing the paint color to a more soothing palette, adding a mirror to deflect negative energy, hanging a Crystal to expand positive energy that might have been going down the drain…There’s always a remedy for whatever you have going on.

Feng Shui is also about intention.  If you want to increase the harmony without your relationships, you can add more lighting in that corner of the house or hang a chi boosting crystal.  In turn, every time you look at that new light, you are reminded of your intention to have loving friends and family surrounding you.  It’s a process that affects not only your energy but your consciousness as well.

In the end, I feel that the benefits of Feng Shui are especially powerful for sensitive people like us.  And here’s one instance where being sensitive is a VERY GOOD thing!

PS: the funniest thing is that Cheryl is a long time member of the Empath Community, a web site I created to support Empaths!  I had never met a member of my web site in person and this was a very exciting “first” for me!!!!  Some things are just meant to be…

Empath hope
Categories :Intuition

I often receive emails from people thanking me for my work and who want to share their experience on how it helped them get “unstuck”.

It’s always profoundly meaningful to me when someone experiences an emotional connection to my work, whether it’s an epiphany from reading about Empaths or the amazing relief that comes from finally figuring out what is going on during an Intuitive Counseling session.

But most importantly, many people who visit my web site experience instant relief when reading about someone else’s positive experience. It gives them hope that maybe they can be helped too. And hope is the most powerful life changer when we’re stuck in the dark, turning in circles!

If you found something helpful, whether we worked together in a session or you just found a great link on my web site, I’d love to hear about your experience! Simply add a “reply” to this post.  It is my intention for this page to shine as a beacon of hope for all those that could be helped by my work.

in love,

Elise


Here are some great messages that I received via email…

 

“Elise Lebeau is one of the most grounded and loving intuits out there.

She is clearly in this for the good of all who ask for her help. She is equally comfortable sharing her gift with those who simply want answers and those who want to develop their own skills.

She makes the journey fun and amusing… as it should be.

By working with Elise, I’ve greatly increased my ability to hear and trust my own intuition. I can now easily connect with what is really best for me because of this clarity. It is the greatest gift, and I am having more fun than ever in my life!

I also started working with Elise with a focus on improving my financial life. My trading account value has doubled…twice! I had been struggling with ups and downs for months, when we first started, but within a couple of months, my returns became consistent and a major source of personal capital was revealed to me.

My trading takes less time than before, so I have more time to enjoy the rest of my life… I’m even sleeping more soundly than before.” Love,”

- Ben Richards


“I always knew I was intuitive, but my intuition often failed me

when I needed it the most…

…To find answers in time of crisis

…To make good decisions I could feel happy about down the road

…To create new income opportunities in my business

Hi, my name is Kirsten Hope,CHt., CBP and I’ve been astounded by how this program has helped learn how to trust and follow my intuition.

I have learned to hone my intuitive skills to

  • Have greater clarity about what I want, making feel more authentic and happy with my decisions.
  • Hear my intuition even in times of turmoil by using the Intuitive Exercises.
  • Feel more confident about knowing what to do next, so I never feel lost very long.”

“I want to tell you that I am so pleased with your exercises. They have really made a difference. Your EFT for Intuition somehow has calmed me down.
Whereas before I would be anxious about how my day would unfold, about whether such a person would call me and when etc, now I feel re-wired. I get subtle hints and body signals; I take action on that basis.

Thanks for making EFT a reality in my life.
Lovingly, ”

“I can’t think of any book, lecture or conversation that has had as big of an impact on how I live each day, as Elise’s work. I thought that intuition would tell me the “right” thing to do, and if I correctly used my intuition then I would make the right choices and things would go smoothly. I now view intuition as my feeling of truth at any given moment. If I am in touch with my intuition, then I am aware of how I feel at that time. The choices I make evolve as I get more information. The real treasure of Elise’s program is learning to use intuition to feel better. It is not a matter of finding the right answer, but rather using my emotions to guide my actions so that I feel better.

Elise has synthesized much of the information I have read over the past couple of years, and helped me to apply it to my life in a concrete, practical way. It has been extremely helpful to have access to her coaching for specific life situations, both my own and that of other group members. It is more than just intuition – it’s a way of living. I’ve only just begun, but I’m excited to see what happens as I use what I’ve learned. ”
- Marilyn J., Oregon


“I came across your site as I was trying to understand some of the experiences I go through.

The reason for my e-mail is just to say that it is so refreshing to see such a genuine caring person as you seem to be. There are so many empathic persons out there who are very focused on “what’s in it for me” and you can just see that immediately. Your genuine love and concern is so refreshing and true; and I just wanted to send you an e-mail to say that as it really makes an impact.

Take care and All the Best!”
- Maria K., received on February 02, 2008

 


“I’ve been able to release years of anger, shame and fear and it feels great. I didn’t even know this fear existed until I started this program. Thanks for having the desire to share this program. I’ve been stuck for a long time and this is exactly what I needed.”

- Carolyn B. received on 09/05/2008


“I want to thank you for doing what you are doing. Ive only completed 5 exercises of your intuition program (so far) and already have experienced a powerful shift in my vibration and intuition level. Powerful.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
This program has already helped me greatly. I look forward to many more exercises and experiences!!”
-Carolina O., received on February 07, 2008


I just wanted to say thank you for making this wealth of information available to people like myself.

I have had some major struggles trying to make sense of my inner experience , so much so that I’ve been on social assistance for the last eight years and avoiding social interaction as much as I can.

I have been on about a ten year search, looking for people who could help me make sense of the sometimes intense emotions I would experience.

I’ve had to endure a lot, but through that I slowly got closer and closer to developing coping skills, and developing the language that would help me think more clearly about what I was experiencing.

You’re the first person I’ve come across who has finally acknowledged the possibility of feeling the emotions of others in plain language.

Not only that but you’ve provided the solution that I’ve been searching for all this time- how to turn it down.

I discovered your site last night and have been practicing turning the dial down and it seems to be working. So thanks again for sharing this knowledge.

Maybe I can finally begin to form lasting friendships/relationships and feel like a part of society.”

- Clinton J., Received on 04/24/08


“I am a 22 year old theater student from Los Angeles, California. I have just recently been consciously aware of my empathic abilities. All my life I’ve had a feeling that I had some sort of an ability, but I never figured out what it was.

It wasn’t until the past week that I did some research and made a shocking discovery. I had already knew what an empath was, but when I researched further, I realized I had all the common traits and I felt something nudging me to look deeper. After further research and spiritual epiphany, I am now learning to embrace and use my gift. Interestingly enough, I discovered that I seemed to know, deep down, all along.

Ever since my discovery, I have been looking for something to help me validate and develop my true self, and the relief in understanding my gift through your site has really helped me.

I can’t thank you enough for the happiness and empowerment your site has given me!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
- Joe M, received June 17th 2009


hi. i just found this site yesterday and i just want to say thank you. i am
beginning to fully accept my path as an empath. i’ve known i’ve had this
gift ever since i was a child (i’m now 38) but to be honest, it has been a
deep source of overwhelm — in so many ways – so i’ve run away – but now,
i’m doing my best to explore this as a positive in my life — not as
something that scares me. i wrote the question down in my journal yesterday
morning before my daily meditation – “how do i learn how to truly know what
are my emotions and which ones are not mine?” — and then, later in the day
while managing a separate task altogether, i came across your site. the
“survival guide” exercises and the language you use is so much of what i
have been needing to hear. thank you.

“People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway.

If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.

People who really want help may attack you if you help them. Help them anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt. Give the world your best anyway.”

Well, actually, I feel pretty much the same as I did a few days ago when I was still 38.  BUT I do like getting older because I noticed a very interesting pattern in my life  since I started following my intuition: the older I get, the happier I am!

Things were not always like that.  In fact, I used to have a very tumultuous life.  When I would get together with my best friend, it would often take me hours to related all the catastrophes that had fallen upon me in the last few weeks…

But becoming intuitive changed all that.  I stopped turning in circles, always making the wrong turns, and finally got my life on the “good track”.

The most consistent result I have seen from learning to master and leverage my intuition has been a steady stream of improvements in my daily life.   I didn’t win the lottery but I sure feel like it!  Following my intuition has given me more satisfaction, fulfillment and enjoyment that I ever dreamed possible.  And honestly, I can’t wait to see where it’s going to take me next!
