The 7 Biggest Traits of an Empath

The 7 Biggest Traits of an Empath

Empath’s tend to be loners and love being alone to get away from all the hustle and bustle of life that saps all the energy from them. When in hermit mode, they relax and recharge, so they are able to get back to themselves and come back out to the world refreshed

1. Self-Sacrificing

Empaths are the most self-sacrificing people on Earth, hands down! This is not exactly always a good thing, either. In fact, most times, it’s downright detrimental and dangerous to the empath themselves. This is because the empathic person does not think of themselves first. They cannot even relax until they feel that everyone around them has what they need and want, are then happy. But these needs and wants tend to mount and are endless.

It’s impossible to keep up and naive to think that they can make anyone truly happy and save them from themselves or life’s dangers. Only they can make themselves happy and the empath introvert needs to understand this. Otherwise, they continue to never get to take a look at their selves and will lose themselves in the process. Many don’t even know what they want in life for themselves.

It can be hard when these ideas are put into us since childhood. We carry them with us and most the time are quite proud of it because we think that being a martyr for others makes us saintly, that it makes us the good, dutiful person that mother & father had instilled within us. Many of us empaths were born as the eldest and because we behaved so well as a child, many responsibilities were placed upon us and that can make one grow up fast… too fast.

Anyhow, the idea of being self-sacrificing for the empath is their whole identity and to learn to be anything else can be very difficult but it’s vital. Learning to love one’s self truly and understanding the concept of self-care is one of the intuitive empath introvert’s greatest soul missions and life purpose’s.

2. Natural Hermits and Loners

Empaths find it very easy and very much enjoy spending time alone. Doing things alone is not something that they are afraid of. While others do not have that kind of confidence, the empath introvert has absolutely no problem going out and about alone and doing their own thing. They thrive off of this and this allows them time to delve into that curious and investigative mind that they behold.

Large crowds, long lines in the grocery store, packed traffic, etc. All these are only a few of the scenarios where there are too many people, lots of action and high stressful situations that can sap the empathic person of their energy! A long day out of running errands and having to face any one of these things can almost feel as though the individual can retreat for the next week in order to recharge!

It doesn’t always have to be high stress situations either. Even going a night on the town with friends, going out to clubs and spending a Friday night downtown can actually exhaust the empath as well! If you’re out with your empath friend, you may notice that they disappear from time to time into the bathroom stall or to go outside for fresh air and a few moments to breathe.


3. Highly Intuitive

An Empathic person is an extremely intuitive person, whether they know this or not. They may have even had fear over it sometime in their lives, because it can be so strong and so accurate.

The empath has been known and called to be human lie detectors. They can pick up on the most micro of expressions on the face of a person and are excellent at reading body language. Because the intuition is so powerful, they can literally feel the energy coming from the person and while reading things like body language along with this, they can damn near read the person’s mind. They know when someone is lying to them and are amazing with understanding others by having this ability to see through people and being able to read them so accurately.

Much of the intuitive impressions that come for the empath can manifest in a number of ways. Dreams are normally very lucid, vivid, and full of color. Emotions and symbolism can be quite powerful and it’s astonishing at how acute their vessels are for this spiritual information which hails from pure spirit. They are able to channel this energy and interpret it starting from a very young age but as they hone this ability and mature it, they can be unstoppable and many have intuited some of the most powerful pieces of music, writings, paintings and other works of art.

4. Spiritual & Pensive

Empaths are very thoughtful, insightful, inspirational and spiritual people. They first begin to display signs of this at a very young age. Many begin to show their spiritual gifts early on through friendship with animals, writing in journals as a practice from early on, having others come to them for solace, advice, and absolution when in pain, reading very powerful and strong spiritual and transformational books, being attracted to and creating art that represents metaphysical, sacred geometric and powerful for a person so young.

This essence about them does not leave in adulthood, but in fact can grow significantly. They may begin asking very deep questions about the political realms, digging into history and ancient mystery schools and societies. They don’t often follow the status quo concerning spirituality and their connection to spirit is often very misunderstood by most. This is because they are able to grasp the meatier subject material regarding these matters and have a natural love for meditating upon them. Insights seem to come out of nowhere and information that comes from spirit will hit like lightening flashes which only serves to deepen and enrich their colorful, inner lives which is very profound and comforting to them.

5. Old Souled with Strong Emotional Intelligence

Some of the most highly, emotionally mature and emotionally evolved people are empaths. They have an instinct for behaving in ways that reflects their ability to be very aware of the world around them. They are very honest and uphold ethical behaviors and their core values. Popularity and what seems to be trendy, does not matter to these old souls. They do not succumb to group think and will never act in a petty, trivial matter.

As old souls, empaths do not harbor ill feelings toward others and forgive very easily. This can make them very strong and easy to move forward. They are very real, down to earth and never compromise who they are for the sake of fitting in. Falseness, fakes, facades, superficiality and shallowness are all things that an empathetic, old soul despises. They believe in modesty, honesty, meekness and being humble. All of these attitudes and attributes are signs of a very emotionally intelligent and mature person who has no problem building relationships and keeping them.

6. Takes on the Emotions of Others

Empaths are often looked to as someone who can be counted upon when you need a listening ear or some saving in one way or another. If there is any suffering, an empath will literally feel and take that suffering onto them. These poeple understand and relate to others more than anyone else. They literally put themselves into your shoes and walk your walk along with you. They honestly care wholeheartedly.

If any pain or suffering is around, the empath wants to come in and heal it, make it better in some way. The injustices in the world can really take a toll upon their physical and emotional health because of the intense emotions they feel in regard to not having control over such suffering, such as that on the news. Watching the news can be very unhealthy for the empath because of not only their emotional involvement into it’s stories, but the low, vibrational frequencies that are given off from these media formats. ‘

These kinds of places for information, entertainment, etc. Are literally designed to put you in a state of constant fear and insecurity. They are meant to control your mind and decision making. Though empaths understand that there is a matrix to break free from, it still can frustrate them and depress them terribly if they feel that they cannot do something to attribute to humanity in some way. It’s very important that they are active in this way in one sense or another. Volunteering is an amazing place to start.

7. Ability to Feel and Read Energy in a Powerful Way

Empaths can feel the most subtle of energy forms. The energy that they come in contact with may not just be something they sense mentally but actually see, such as with auras around other people and beings like plants or animals.

Their bodies seem to be perfect vessels for housing the kinds of spiritual energy that allows them to harness and transmute that very energy into other forms such as through art, music, writing, and speaking, etc.

It’s this very energy that allows them to correctly identify what another person is really thinking and feeling, or how awkward the energy in a room might be. It’s the energy that gives them this radar that knows precisely whether or not someone is lying to them or whether their pet cat is unhappy or sick.

This is the same energetic, life force that has brought them into spiritual awakenings and transformations throughout their life and afforded them their powerful intuition and ability for gaining insights and seeing wisdom in things many people miss.

Either way, through whichever format in whatever given situation, the empathic introverted person uses their ability for feeling out energy in order to protect themselves and others from danger. They also use this same energy to educate and inspire. Just take a look around the mere 5% of the population that makes up these individuals… each are passionately loving, loyal, highly in-tuned, intensely in sync, immensely mindful of others and the one’s we look to as peace keepers, mediators, and powerful listeners who are earnest and sincere. Empaths are some of the most genuine people you will ever meet or have the luck to be around in your life.

The empath can zoom in on your feelings and really feel you energetically. Using energy in this way makes it very easy for an empath to understand you deeply. Because they receive this energy, like an antennae so easily, they really need to be cautious and careful because unwanted and toxic energies can not only gravitate toward them but remnants can be attached and stuck, which can effect their own physical and emotional health, making it hard for them to determine whether they are actually feeling their own emotional energy or another’s.

The empath has a love affair with music because of the natural high they receive from the energy and vibrations coming from the music. Their bodies will literally respond to the energy of the beat and melody of the music. They understand that music acts like a powerful spell because of the vibrations it carries. When a piece of music gets played that they resonate with on a physical, cellular level, the hair on their bodies will actually raise in response! This makes them excellent dancers and performers. They instinctively know and understand the way music works at a quantum energetic level. The same can be said with colors, food, etc.


In conclusion, it is very fair and safe to say that they empath is a powerful ally to have in one’s life whether it be personal or professional. This person is beyond loyal, holds to high standards and carries strong core values. They are never motivated by anything other than by love or higher good of all. These people are natural born healers and are loved by children and animals. They can sense that the empath is the person to get nurture and the feeling of safety from.

If you have an empath in your life, please remind them that while you appreciate and adore all they do for you and everyone else, they cannot save the world, they aren’t superwoman and that they need to start looking at themselves and caring for their neglected spirit. Often it is far too late in life when the empath finally turns to themselves and asks “what do I need or want?”. When they finally get there, however, it begins to open up an awakening and awareness process that truly leads the empath upon their own life’s purpose or soul’s mission.

What exactly does Spiritual Entrepreneurship mean? You’re thinking to yourself that you have never even heard of such a concept and that you’re not even sure if this kind of business realm is even something you want to participate in. After all, it’s not like you’re this huge religious person or anything.

Spiritual Entrepreneurship calls for taking spiritual principles and applying them to your life in business.

Good news… You do not have to be this all-consuming, religious person. That’s not what Spiritual Entrepreneurship is about. Think about it like this… You have a set of gifts that you were born with that make you unique. These traits make you, you. When you become one with these gifts and when you align yourself with the best of who you are when you are actively pursuing and using your special talents that once engaged with these, you feel so inspired and so enthusiastic! This is because you were and are actually meant to infuse these gifts by accomplishing your path. Taking these things that are special and different for you and implementing them with the way you’re doing work in the world through business is a good way of seeing how Spiritual Entrepreneurship works.

Growing a business that caters to the heart and brings love into this world is what you can call Spiritual Entrepreneurship.

Some of you do not know what these gifts are. You keep asking yourself, “how to find your passion?” Who are you and what things make you really lit on fire? You might have to take stock and do a little journaling. Taking just 10 minutes in the morning or at night just before bed can be the perfect way to reveal exactly what these passions are. Looking back upon your childhood and remembering those things that you loved to do can also reveal to you some things that can open you up. Grab some books, visit a few blogs and read a few articles… But always use your intuition. Your intuition is the way Holy Spirit/ the universe speaks to you.  Listen, listen, listen.

Spiritual Entrepreneurship calls for taking spiritual principles and applying them to your life in business. Understanding that each of has a message to bring out into the world. It’s about considering your core values and applying these to your life’s work. It’s about getting together with others to spread this message or do business using these values and principles and making certain that your tribe of fellow workers honestly understand your morals and values and what’s important to you in your business.

Having a clear understanding of what you stand for is very important. You must have a vision with a clear path set before you. Knowing who you are and what you believe in will attract the very people that you want to see in your personal life and those personalities that you want to do business with. Growing a business that caters to the heart and brings love into this world is what you can call Spiritual Entrepreneurship.

Jumping into things and listening to your intuition and really going for it can be one hell of a scary thing. Listening to holy spirit has always been scary for those that took the leap over the course of history. If they had not, many of us would not be who we are or maybe even exist! But you must keep your strength and wits about you and keep yourself inspired because you are creating something beautiful.

Spirit speaks to you because there’s a need in this world for what you are bringing forth and it can only be brought about because of your personal, beautiful, God-given gifts that are totally unique to you. Mixing these gifts that you will be honing, and putting them into place within your business life is the simplest way that I can tell you outright what spiritual entrepreneurship actually is. If this is the path that you’re looking to create for yourself, then I honestly cannot see why wouldn’t. Being the greatest of who we are and coming together with our selves to be connected to something more powerful can only take us to the greatest heights and bringing others along that ride with us. This is something very powerful.

Taking the path of involving your professional and personal life as a Spiritual Entrepreneur is your highest calling to life. Do it. Answer the call to life.

Below is a link to some very valuable books on Spiritual Entrepreneurship and become the greatest Spiritual Entrepreneur by figuring out exactly how to find your passion and using it for good.

What Storyline Are You Feeding Yourself Over and Over Again?



What story are you telling yourself? You know, the one that you have been retelling for years. What is it that you believe about yourself, where you have come from, where you are now, and where you feel you are headed in life? What does your body do when you think about this story that goes round and round in your mind about who you think yourself to be? Does your body shutter? Does your chest open up along with your heart? Do you start to feel small or do you start to feel tall, empowered and powerful? Many of us grow up believing that we have nothing to offer. We just follow the rules that are given to us, staying out of others way to be seen but not heard. To me, this is a travesty.

Each one of us has something incredibly significant to offer. So special in fact, that we are born with a unique DNA signature that has never been replicated nor will ever be. Your body vibrates a frequency as though it were a single note among millions that creates a powerful universal orchestra in which you are literally a signature sound that adds its unique piece and has its important place within this beautiful, sacred song that reverberates throughout this magical, spiritual Universal masterpiece that is being played. Think about that for a minute!

It’s so easy to listen to fall into that trap of listening to what is spoken about us, including that inner critic which tells us that we live for nothing more than to just simply survive, struggle, and exist. In fact, people are proud of this so-called struggle! Somehow victimhood and false martyrdom have become something to honor and celebrate, as though the victim has now become some kind of symbol for excellence, morale, and strength because of this so-called “struggle”. Unfortunately, this is a detrimental way of seeing things. There is no strength in victimhood. It’s very disempowering and a cop out. It’s the individual with the warrior heart and the person of strength that ought to be celebrated.

Stepping into the power of who you are and being your authentic self is what true strength and courage come from. It is knowing who you are and honoring your core values, always trusting within yourself, possessing the faith and belief that you are a child of God with unique qualities, talents, skills, strengths, experiences, and gifts that are unique to only you. Encoded within your very DNA.

Getting to understand the beauty of you, knowing the security of being at home with yourself and the power you can create within yourself using those gifts that can be used to project a message that will inspire and uplift others and act as a leader within your own right.

You are a transformation leader. Even if you are not aware of it at this moment. You are a leader with incredible value and the voice that many will connect with, that will allow you to bring your message that is given to you by a higher power and holy spirit, that you have sitting within yourselves, that is trying and striving to come out and do that will of the creator by using your gifts and sharing that message that is upon your heart and soul.

It is of utmost honor, respect, compassion, and importance that I come to you with my own messages of the heart that will move to inspire and motivate you to open your mind to the world of becoming who you are deeply and who you are to become in this lifetime. You have the gift of life and your happiness and your passion for life is my Calling. I’m here to tell you that your life is Calling. Your Higher Self is coming out and you are going to be seeking your own soul’s purpose.

Now, it can really be quite difficult because while we were growing up we were programmed with thoughts and limiting beliefs about Who We Are and what to expect through life and what it’s actually about. It is different for some, depending upon their culture or region, which they were brought up like most of us are, with this programmed limited belief system.

This is why many people suffer a lot of fear, live very small lives, and never really go out and become the people they were meant to be. We each have a mission to walk forward to, for the Creator, and this is why we have been instilled with these beautiful gifts that we need to hone, nurture, sharpen and perfect, if possible.

Right now, at this moment, there is no better time! This is your permission to go out and give to the world in service. Allow your divine gifts to shine through. Open your heart and surrender your soul to the spirit of this big, wide Universe, that honestly does have your back! Why wait and put it off for some distant time in the future, which none of us are promised. We only have the now.

Do you believe that you have what it takes? Do you believe that you have the strength? Do you believe that you have the trust, the faith, and the belief that it is possible to create a reality for yourself and for others that is more astounding and beautiful? Know that you can! If you just simply want to, ask and you will receive!

Never allow fear to overtake you and rob you of your happiness! Never allow fear to rob you of who you are! You have a unique message given to you from a higher place in which power of Love resides. It lives inside. Never allow this life to steal your spirit and your passion! Dig inside and bring out the inner child that is within you and allow your most authentic self to take you places that will bless yourself and others as you make your way this through this sacred journey in life. Know that life is so much more magical than what is told to you day after day after day. There is a life out there for you that is waiting. Just simply hold out your arms and grab it! Do it like there is no tomorrow, never wasting one moment and always remembering precisely what you were created to be!

Your life is calling. Are you going to answer it?

How to Find Your Passion As An Aspiring Spiritual Entrepreneur: A Numerology Reading Can Guide You

How to Find Your Passion As An Aspiring Spiritual Entrepreneur: A Numerology Reading Can Guide You

You may not have understood this to be true in this past but the science of numbers and understanding them can powerfully change your life. Knowing that everything is energy and that everything carries a vibration, it’s easy to understand that numbers are a powerful form for that. When you consider the alphabet, we know that each letter also is a stand-in for numbers. For example, the letter “A” vibrates as the number one. How does Spiritual Entrepreneurship relate to all of this?

You might be asking yourself already, how does getting a numerology reading help you with how to find your passion? Well, when we begin to take a look at ourselves as the main source of wisdom when considering how we plan to find those clues that lead us to find your passion… You want to partake in anything that might reveal to you any insightful information that pertains to that.

I used to love doing any all personality tests, quizzes, I.Q. tests, etc. Anything that would hint at me exactly who I was and where I might be headed in life or what my personality type often attracts, etc. Some classes that had allowed me to update my dependable strengths and such, would often help guide me a little but it kept it sort of shallow in a sense. I wanted heavier and meatier ways of understanding who I was so that I could have it all settled in my head and know beyond the shadow of a doubt! However, nothing out there is going to that. But there are many ways that give so much insight, that it gives you enough information for you to play. So you can go out there, manifest and experiment a little.

I definitely suggest getting a numerology reading. No doubts about it. I remember having some of greatest books on this subject and it was one of the best tools for me that I would return to over and over. Once you have your reading as a reference guide, you tend to go back to it a lot. Each time you see it, you end up seeing something that you didn’t before and it is so helpful with opening up your intuition and allowing you to see yourself better. It’s so comprehensive that you kinda have to go back over and over. Each time, your insights about yourself simply get a little meatier than before. It’s great when you want to use this for time for self-analysis.

Using your numerology reading is an amazing way to compliment your Meyer-Briggs, color, spatial, emotional quotient test and any other personal profile system that you may be using as part of your “spiritual” portfolio. It’ll certainly help add an overall view, a wider look at the full spectrum of your desires, inclinations, special traits, quirks, abilities, etc.

When we think about the universal force of energy all around us and understand that our bodies are a universe within themselves and that our bodily temples too have an energetic system… We need to understand that our names, given over to use at birth add to this energetic system that is uniquely applied to each of us. Names are very important, as they provide for us a small look at the individual’s overall attitude and purpose. If you remember, in the bible, Yahweh changes the names of Abram and Sarai when their purposes change. They both then became Abraham and Sarah to depict their new realities. The numbers in a name provide clues to these energies and how they manifest themselves into the material world.

This is important when considering the name of your business. Understanding the importance of energy in the numbers of a name can really save you from choosing a name that doesn’t coincide with your own personal energy system and then totally fails you. Personally, I use a name generator online when even selecting the name of a site’s address on the web! Same with any username identification as well. I take it that seriously. This is because I know for a fact that when I am around numbers that do not resonate with me and my energy, everything that attracts seems to be all wrong.

The same is true when we sit to consider the very address to where you live! Currently, my apartment is a number is 154 which breaks down into a number one. My life path number is a one. For me, it denotes that the vibrations for that life path number are enhanced and it makes it perfect for me to partake with anything that might strengthen my individualism, or help in the area of leadership and business. It compliments numbers like 5 and 7 as well. Seven is regarded as a very introverted, reflective and spiritual number, great for investigation. While 5 denotes adventure, playfulness, flexibility, etc. Getting your full numerology reading report deepens all of this for you. It’s crazy how accurate this thing is! It really is. I’m telling you, that you’re going to be sitting with your cup of tea or even better, your glass of wine, curled up on the couch and sucked right in! Your numerology reading totally reveals every time period and aspect of your life.

Lastly, I would suggest considering the same for the physical address of your business. Consider the type of business you’re running and kind of energy that you want to promote and the type of energy that you want to see flowing. Adding a little feng shui to this would be an amazing coupling to literally direct the flow of moving energy throughout the building. This literally will determine the types of customers that you attract. Who do you want to see coming to pay a visit and do business with you? What are you trying to represent?

As a side note, your business phone number is also something to think about. How often your phone rings and the quality of the calls also get determined by your number sequence! It’s a little crazy, I know… But it truly works if you take the time out to do this. If you know anything about Glynnis McCant’s, “the number’s lady”… then you have heard all of this. She’s amazing! I grabbed her book back in 2004 when I first heard her show over the new Hayhouse radio when it was Wisdom radio back in the day and she had her podcasts all free. Her book, “Glynnis Has Your Number” is amazing!  She sheds light on numerology like no other. She has a style all her own and is so charismatic! I have been following her for years. (click the link if you’re interested in taking a look at her book.)

To wrap things up and wind down, I just could go on and on about this subject because understanding the energy of numbers is to provide so much insight into our Universe and it really opens me up to so much out there, including the mind of our Creator. It’s a beautiful thing. But most importantly, it’s such a useful tool to understanding you! You have a deep need to bring energy and liveliness to your life and desire to do so with your drive and your passions. You can do it. You will do it. You are an amazing soul and gifted beyond measure. It’s so important for you to realize that.

If you have your resume and have been meaning to update it because it hasn’t been updated in a few years… Use the numerology reading as a way to help with that. I used to refer to it all the time so that I could have some great wording and phrases to use within the qualifications portion of the resume.

As we journey through this together, I want you to know that I am a real person writing this and telling you that it’s my job, my duty and honor… but above all… it’s my passion to help you find your passion and purpose in life and happiness is in this cards for us all. There’s more than enough to around and this journey all on its own is a powerful thing! Remember, you are on this ride with me. I’m building myself up as I also help inspire you.

For today, go do a little research about yourself. Write some things down in your journal. Consider this homework for personal development. Let’s see where your numbers are and what they say about you. I’ll leave the link below and you can take a look for yourself.

As you may know, I’m an affiliate with Numerologist and so you also provide me the goodwill of allowing me an earning if you decide to go with a full, complete numerology reading after your free, crazy accurate beginning. Remember that this is my business too and I work ever so hard to provide you the best and will be greater and greater as we head on and you can follow along with me and I will be able to see how well you’re growing. I am excited to see you blossom. You are my muse! Your prayers are with me.

I love you! Thank you.
