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
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.
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.

Hello, big wide world and fellow soulful ones! Thank you for joining me. I’m just understanding the real depths about who I am and what I am as an empathic, introverted woman. I’ve been working on myself in a very deep way, as I am often apt to do but the past 2 years and particularly the last 12 months, have been more enlightening than they ever have before.
I have been through half of a lifetime of deep transformation that has evolved me into the woman I am today. Can I say, that although, I am of course, still learning and evolving and still have many things that I need to tweak, integrate, change, and sort out… Despite all of that, I feel that I am contented and that I am on the road to where I am most able to live out my most precious dreams… the ones I have had for myself since a young girl.
I am proud to be the woman I am right now. I’m not perfect at all, don’t need to be, can understand that although my anxieties and fears stem from this need for perfection, I do not have to allow it to control me. I can go to places in my mind and life where I know my Creator is leading me to the best of me. Taking the time to be more mindful. More in tune with my playful side as well.
I honestly feel that there were some things that needed to take place and some other things that needed to take shape in order for me to be exactly where I am, right now, at this moment, 2018. I attempted similar changes for my life in 2007 and had a foundation laid out, but had far too many responsibilities to others, to my job… The timing wasn’t right.
There were some powerful moments of loss, grief, tragedy, and deeper soul-searching that needed to take place that I thought I had already gone through at that point in time. I can now better take control of my thoughts, feelings, and emotions. My emotional and spiritual intelligence have raised and it excites me as it gets more and more expansive. It’s adding color to my life and experiences. You can do the same. What do you have to lose?
We raised, cared for, and nurtured a massive sized family that reached out to include extended family members. Particularly siblings on both sides! I am referring to my guy of 23 years when I say “We”. The family is important to us and because we are both highly sensitive people, particularly I, as an empath, it’s always our tendency to want to be hospitable and nurture. However, at the same time, we allowed some of it to get out of control and it cost our son’s behavior and our relationship in many unforeseen ways. Many of you are currently doing the same things or have allowed things to nearly annihilate you! Haha.
We suffered much loss, grief and tragic circumstances that was really hard to get through. But it was done. I am so much stronger and awake for it. All the while, however, I truly felt that something was coming that needed me to be in a particular mindset with a certain set of values and a wisdom gained through these very painful, traumatic and sometimes very lonely experiences. I am very resilient, have endurance, am flexible with stubborn tenacity to keep going. I spent hundreds of nights, that were very long and to myself, all by my lonesome, to think. To meditate. To observe. It was truly the Dark Night of the Soul in it’s purest sense. It was deepest episode yet.
Losing my newborn daughter before her birth was one of these things that came along and knocked us off our feet and ripped out our hearts. That’s when a carefully and craftily disguised spiritual depression set in. I still feel like it’s a surreal event that occurred in my life. My dear Olyvia was real and she existed. She was here and she brought incredible insight into my life. I can still feel that moment of real pride while looking into her pretty little face.
This deep, strange crisis that set it after her passing which caused a type of awakening was precisly that “Dark Night of the Soul”, process. Believe me, it was most definitely an “existential conundrum”, as my late brother in law Joel and I would often joke about when referring to the Huckabees film. Losing him last year was also a very surreal change. But going through that process can be smothering. It’s all encompassing.
Though I was going through what seemed like an abyss of hell, I know how to get through things quickly because of my closeness with the Creator and my belief that we are living in a beautiful, conscious Universe and living Earth, giving me unshakeable faith. I stubbornly forge ahead and drum up all that I need inside to thrive and survive. Going within and retreating to myself is often where I take myself in life’s problematic and heavier moments. It’s something natural to me. Most of us need to learn to become more mindful and reflective. I coach myself often and turn to educating myself and becoming resourceful when I need to find strength, hope and an understanding of getting the success to make it through things.
It was difficult many times because of the mindset I was having. I had all this programming running around inside that kept saying to me, “why aren’t you further ahead in life? You should have had that career by now! When are you going to get all the shit you told yourself you would have in your life? When are you going to take a chance and let go of all these toxic people and toxic situations? When are you going to get out of this depression? Is this the life that you are going to settle for? Why are you waiting? You’re getting too old now! What are you doing?” On and on and on and on, this type pf thinking would occur in my mind. Overthinking has always been a weakness of mine.
Yet, I’ve always been one to see the light at the end of the tunnel, even if it was very blurry and not at all clear at the moment. I have always felt my Creator near me and I often do have these earnest prayers of where I am having these conversational moments. I can feel the spirit of God all around me. I can see this operating in my life all the time. My intuition is super strong and works for me when I pay attention and listen with faith. There’s just far too many experiences that are serendipitous. Synchronicity has always been everywhere! I see it as messages of the angels. I remember the scripture, “As a man thinketh, so is he”. We are what we believe we are. We get what we expect. I needed to change my mindset and expect something better.
Insights just seem to pop into my head out from the ether and I have delved so far and so deep into the deepest of the deep in all areas of my life and within the grander landscape of this world we live in. They used to call me “lil ole lady” for a reason. I was thinking and pondering the state of our planet, the people who live on it, the beautiful creatures that live among us and the gorgeous landscape of stars above.
I would love to be an inspiration for others like me, as an empath, who want to live a spiritual life and live according to the Universal laws of love, attraction and manifestation. Living with authenticity and audaciously in order that I might understand how to find seek passion deeply and live out my Spiritual Journey beautifully but helping others navigate and understand their own awakening, while I too, continue my own life trip upstream.
Soul Studies researching is so important
Passion is in your heart.
As of today, I am a middle aged woman, moving along slow and steadily toward a much more sacred, peaceful and contented way of life. One that I have never known before. This year has had so much learning, so much awakening! Both by doing inner, more spiritual work and learning a series of new skills and concepts. This year isn’t even over yet, either!
I have this powerful desire to inspire, empower, motivate and teach to share all that I know and have come know and learn. I keep seeking the answers of how to find your passion for life through a spiritual journey both during and after awakening, while also sharing all the tools and resources that I personally believe in and come to know very well. There are some really fine quality jewels of wisdom, knowledge, insight and everyday life tips and spiritual resources that are beyond useful.
I am walking away from all that fear that I have had for so long. My agonizing fear over not succeeding literally made it so that I was overthinking and stagnant, in total paralysis analysis. It doesn’t allow you to move forward. Then all those decisions…Should I do this or should I do that? Do I go with this or that? Should I go this way or that way?
I was always one for indecision for fear of not making the correct choice. I would pick apart and laser in on each and every possible scenario and many times choosing or not choosing based off of presuming to know what may or may not occur without having jumped in and making the decision. I would decide before I even tried! How foolish that was! I was holding myself back based off of something that not occured.
Fear is a powerful thing and can leave you feeling stuck. Fear leaves you feeling powerless and drained. The best way to deal with this is through the power of prayer and reflection. Meditation, my friend. That’s right. Remember all those strengths that you do have, can be consciously made to bubble up to the surface and strengthened. If you’ve been through hell already, then you know that you don’t have to have to worry about living openly as yourself without that fear and unjustified anxiety. Face it. You have resilience and you have incredible power. I’ve discovered these things about myself and I know they are within you too.
Imagination can take you to beautiful places but it can also take you to places that aren’t so desirable. What you believe to be true will manifest. Remember your integrity, character and core values. Those things allow us to hold our head on high as we make this journey through life. Building a strong foundation can prepare us for when challenges appear. Fear freezes us. Remember those wonderful strengths that we have carved out for ourselves.
We’re are own worst critic and as empaths, we are far too hard on ourselves and it’s ridiculous when you think about it because you can be so gentle and patient with others but aweful to ourselves within our own minds. We can easily build someone else up. It’s important that we do the same for us.
You are your own best friend. I have learned to trust myself more and more and it feels good because I truly am my very own best friend. As true introverts, it’s not so surprising. We always knew how to keep ourselves entertained and don’t need another person to keep us engaged with life. However, we can get really stuck into a hermit pattern and nearly turn ourselves agoaphobic!
I made a decision after going through much of this. It’s my intention and passion that we explore our selves as empaths in this world and learn to understand what makes us thrive, tic, and what keeps us feeling healthy, wise and alive. I’m excited to share this journey with you and can’t wait to see how it all unfolds.
Our universe is powerful and magical, just as we are and we can learn to draw close to the creator and understand how these beautiful universal laws have been designed, what they mean for us today and who lived by them in the past. The support, the love, and the inspiration are what will hold everything together and be the glue for us muses and my soon to be tribe of Sacred Ravens.
It’s important that you understand that staying true to yourself and being truly authentic in the way you express yourself and live your life is what will bring you real and genuine joy. There’s no one in the world like you. Remember that. There’s no sense in feeling locked up in our heads where these negative and unhealthy images and self-talk circle about over and over and over again. Living with a torturous dungeon. The victimizing needs to stop.
SeIf-discovery, through the Creator, is the only way to find yourself upon the road to true purpose, creativity and enthusiasm. Manifesting our dreams, hopes and inspirational lives is a power within reach and can be explored just by acknowledging it. We are powerful and creative creatures. There’s so much to play around with and deeply explore. Let’s get in touch with a more ancient and deep side of ourselves that we can honor. Who do we know ourselves to be?
Self acknowlwdgement and looking at ourselves in the way we percieves ourselves to be rather than what other project onto us, is very important to me and getting in touch with a side of ourselves that we are when we are alone. Being that person and knowing the value of what we do, who we are, and yet not needing the validation of another person, but only ourselves. How we see ourselves is very important. There ought to be a natural, humble and real love for self and a love that makes for sure that we are healthy and that we are taken care of.
I look forward to building a long-lasting friendship with those of you who are like me. Not just as an empath, but also as a truth seeker, a dreamer, an inspired, spiritual person on a journey to be close to the Creator and learn about this life, love, and true practice of self-care with a healthy self-image and strong, clear mindset.
I hope that I deliver when it comes to helping you learn, transform and becoming inspired. My questions are deep and they are many. My quest only seems to deepen over time and my life gets more fascinating to me as I learn more about myself and the people who share this world with me.
We were all born with special gifts and it’s important that we show them to the world. Jeremiah 29:11 is clear in this. We are born with beautiful, powerful, unique gifts that are meant to do the will of the Creator and that passion and enthusiasm we feel when we are in the flow of these spiritually driven, unique gifts, allowing us to empower and teach others out there to utilize their own.
Let’s explore and expand who we are as empaths and through inspiration and education, all these things together will add to our creativity, courage, clarity, and contentment! Let’s activate and strengthen our intuition and the way we view our sacred lives and make it a beautiful, sacred life to live by.
I’m wishing you all a life that you deserve, becoming the person you dreamed of and manifest the life you imagined. We deserve the independance and freedom. It’s pure beauty and magic. It’s living each moment as it is, sacred.
Love and Kisses!
