What is an Empath? Resources for Impaired Empaths©

Maybe you always know how other people feel
Maybe you feel uncomfortable in crowds and need alone time
Maybe you carry everybody’s pain as if it was your own

Maybe you’re an Empath?

Definition of an Empath

Empaths are  emotionally sensitive people who sponge up the emotions of others.

We feel what they feel.

Hi, my name is Elise and I’m an Empath…

I know it sounds crazy.  I know you’re thinking this can’t possibly be REAL.  But my own experience over the last 10 years has taught me this:

  • If I ignore it, I feel depressed and overwhelmed.
  • If I embrace it, I feel at peace and receive confirmations that it is accurate

That’s what makes it “real” for me… So no matter how crazy it sounds, I will keep providing everything you need to THRIVE as an Empath!

I have talked with thousands of empaths and witnessed that “ah-ah” moment when all the pieces come together so they can finally wrap their mind around what’s happening to them: it all makes sense!  I LOVE THAT MOMENT…

Am I an Empath? Take the quiz!

Common Side Effects
